discover if you're a psychic or a medium

Discover if you’re a psychic or a medium

You know things – sometimes before they happen. Friends all know you’re a bit spooky and perhaps it runs in the family. If it all sounds confusing, and your Demi Moore on the pottery wheel moments are building up, this will help you discover if you’re a psychic or a medium.

Psychic means ‘soul’

The word “psychic” is an old Greek word that means “relating to the soul.”  There are other familiar words that also have the same old Greek root word too – psychology, psychiatry, and even to ‘psyche’ someone out.

To be psychic means the soul is involved and since we all have a soul, we can also access this part of us as a natural talent.

A psychic is someone who blends their energy and awareness with someone else. We all do it naturally, especially when we like someone. The way you know someone will call just before they do, or when a mother senses their child’s in trouble. Mother’s intuition is a psychic thing.

Psychics work with the living

A psychic works with the energy of someone who is alive. That somebody can be a person, an animal, a place or a thing. When psychcis hold objects in their hands and tell the story of that object, that’s tuning into an object.  They can even get impressions from items that belonged to someone else.

Much like a sniffer dog, they tune in to the energy left behind. Ever walked into a room after an argument and felt the leftover energies? Even though the argument occurred hours ago, the imprint of it is still in the room, ready to be detected by our extra senses as we enter.


Getting impressions from an object is called ‘psychometry” – see the “psych” word popping up there? It’s the art of tuning in to objects and is a skill that can be learned.  When someone comes for an in-person reading, they bring me a leaf or a flower picked on the way and I begin their readings by sensing their energy through the flower, even though they touched it briefly.

A psychic uses the natural power of their soul to connect to those who are living and bring through messages to help, heal and uplift.

A medium does the same, but with ‘dead’ people.

They use exactly the same techniques. So they still blending their energy. They still expand their energy out and receive information from those that have passed. The ones we say are “dead”.


If we can talk to them and they tell us about themselves and even what we are doing now since they’ve “died”, then how dead are they? Big philosophical questions aside, a psychic connects to living people and a medium connects to ‘dead’ ones.

Both psychics and mediums work the same way; they use their skills to tune into the energy of someone. If they are alive, it’s a psychic reading. If they are “dead”, it’s a mediumship reading.

A medium’s job is to stand in the middle and that’s basically what we do. We’re the phone line and transfer the messages we receive to someone here. A good medium always gives enough info about the person in the Spirit World so it’s very clear it’s them.

Discover if you are a psychic or medium.

But what if it’s both? There’s a funky saying: All mediums are psychic but not all psychics are mediums. It means if you’re a medium you’ll also be psychic. But just because someone is psychic doesn’t guarantee they can effectively pass on accurate information about someone’s favourite Uncle Fred. It’s a higher skill.

So now you know the difference between a psychic and a medium, which one are you? And training for both begins the same way. In the beginning, the training is just the same. That’s why we take care to build the basics in my signature course, My Psychic Soul. Perhaps you feel the nudge from the word of spirit or your soul to discover more about your ability.

Semi fictional story about me

In 1994, I had a midlife crisis, got a boob job and moved to Byron Bay.

Quickly realized there was nothing there but more boob jobs and white furniture, so I escaped faux-spiritual beach culture, went to Peru, and experimented with DMT.

While in Peru, fell in love with a Shaman who was really a plumber from Padstow, but stayed because of attachment issues.

After following a puma from the jungle, I holed up in a Scandi-style Air B’n’B and finally got enlightened.

Parts of this story are true.
