How Does a Spiritual Medium or Clairvoyant Work?

Many people consult a spiritually gifted person to gain insight into what the future has to offer, but how does this actually work? It is difficult to describe the sixth sense and this has not been scientifically proven either. A brief explanation is useful to gain insight into how mediums, psychics and other professional spiritual medium work.

If you are considering a paid consultation with a professional spiritual medium, it is best to first check whether this person is also suitable to help you. With some guidelines, it is easier not to get lost in the range of mediums, psychics, psychics, and fortune-tellers.

Medium or psychic?

Both have a sixth sense and can absorb the energy of other people. The introduction is rather an individual experience depending on the consultant and may even differ per consultation. The big difference is that a psychic agrees to the energy of living people or animals and that a medium can also absorb the energy of the deceased. See if someone describes themselves as a medium or as a psychic before entering the consultation. Knowing who is best for your request for help can save a lot of time and money.

Do you wish to ask another question to a deceased person, or do you have spirits in your house? Then you can consult a medium. That is their domain. Also, ask if they have experience with your problem. For example, not every medium can clean a house.

If you want to know where the behavior of a living person in your environment comes from or what your own unconscious concerns are, then you should consult a psychic. Some mediums can just as well enter a living person and therefore do the work of a psychic.

Clairvoyant, clear-sighted and clear-sighted

  • Someone who describes himself as feeling clearly works primarily with perceiving the feelings of others. That person takes over the feelings of the person he/she is trying to obtain information about.
  • Clairvoyants, in particular, get images through. This can be done in two ways: a vision, or an image of something that is in a different place or time. That can be vague or sharp. A medium can also see the deceased in this way.
  • Clearly hearing people, in particular, get spoken words through. Mediums that can hear their guides and spirits are called clear-hearing. Sometimes the thoughts of others can also be perceived as spoken. So telepathy can be a form of clear hearing.

A spiritual medium can have a combination of sixth senses. For example, someone may be clear-sighted and clear-sighted, but cannot get images. Some mediums and psychics all have sixth senses and therefore get everything through as a kind of film with sound, image, and emotion.


Some spiritual mediums use tools to support their gifts. These can be cards, a pendulum, crystal balls, a divining rod, tea leaves, Tarot cards, palm reading, runes… Almost everything, even the entrails of animals, has been used as dividing means over the centuries. Which substance is used during your consultation is not important. The truth is that the divination means to serve as additional support in introducing and are the guiding principle for the insight, but in some cases are also superfluous. In fact, they are simply the translation of what the psychic or the medium perceive with their sixth sense, or so it should be.

Note that there are also scammers, who you can safely call card readers instead of card layers. With the tarot, for example, each card has its meaning and tells part of a story, but it is the interpretation of this in your story that determines the value of the consultation. If you get the feeling that you are learning more about the tarot than about yourself, then you can draw your conclusions from it.

Fortune telling

Fortune tellers or fortune-tellers are people who predict the future. The truth is that certain people can sense so strongly that they can sense future patterns or possibilities or see them in visions, but this is never certain. In short: future forecasts must always be taken with a grain of salt. The future cannot be predicted. If a consultant assures you in black and white that something is going to happen, that is often a lucky bet, but you will also find that if you consult ten fortune tellers, you might get ten different predictions.

Therefore, consider fortune-telling rather as entertainment than as a true guideline. Correct mediums and psychics will never predict the future in black and white and also make it clear that any form of divination serves only to provide insight and to explore possibilities, but never to a certainty. Indeed, predicting the future is officially prohibited in some places.

What questions can you ask?

Many people ask questions about someone else. What does that person think of me? Is that a question to ask a spiritual consultant? You can ask yourself if this is always ethical. If you don’t have a clear question, you won’t get a clear answer either. Many people ask the wrong questions and get no insight. If you pay for a consultation, prepare it well and ask questions whose answers can lead to insight into your situation.

A consultation with a medium or psychic has no legal value whatsoever. For example, you may think that your partner is cheating on you. A spiritual counselor can input and confirm that, but it will not provide legal evidence that you can use during divorce proceedings. Spiritual care providers are also not allowed to make a statement about medical questions and certainly not to make a diagnosis. Only doctors are authorized for this. A right spiritual medium will then refer you to a doctor for these kinds of things. A consultation is only valuable if you want to see the added value of gaining insight into your problem and want to solve it yourself based on that insight.

What can go wrong?

Many people sometimes become dependent on the predictions of mediums and psychics and do not look at their own responsibility. For example, someone who has been unemployed for a while asks a medium if he/she will find work. The medium says there is a good job within the year. This person stops applying and waits for that job. The year passes and that person is angry with the medium because that job did not come.

Then there is the scientifically proven self-fulfilling prophecy that you are going to live according to the advice of the medium. For example, someone who has been desperately single for a while and has lost his / her belief in love is told by a medium that a loving new partner is going to pop up and this person will unknowingly believe in it again and meet someone again where it clicks. A consultation can, therefore, be quite positive and have a happy ending.

People can also go against the medium’s advice. For example, a spiritual medium recommends not buying a particular house. The customer does not listen and still does. This person then goes to live in it and suddenly a lot of hidden defects pop up, which the medium warned about.

In other words, always use your own common sense and take your own responsibilities. If you really want to know your future, then you must, first of all, realize that you have more control over yourself than you think. Spiritual consultations are therefore only valuable if you want insight into taking charge of your future. Nobody can predict that for you.
