Mediums have psychic abilities, but not all psychics can become mediums. A medium can directly communicate with spirits who are still hanging around after their death. This unique ability cannot be accomplished by a psychic. A medium serves as a conduit between the living and the non-living, which a psychic cannot do. A medium can also read and interpret the messages of the spirits in the afterlife.

On the other hand, a psychic can predict the future by utilizing several spiritual avenues. For example, a psychic can give advice and information concerning their love life, family, career, and finances. They can also read tarot cards and tell you what each card means.

A medium cannot read tarots or have the power to predict the future. One of the main benefits of being a psychic is that they can commercialize or make money off their abilities. A medium rarely commercializes their abilities.

Psychic and Mediums are related to a person's spiritual and emotional health. Both of the fields seem to cross over to one another, but one of the key differences between them is that mediums have the functions that a psychic has.

However, when it comes to psychics, not all of them have functions that medium's have. One of those functions mediums can communicate with those who have passed on and now are in spirit form in the afterlife. They are able to convey messages to their loved ones. The main abilities that psychic's have is to predict what will occur in the future.

There are people who may sometimes wonder if psychic and medium are two different words that have the same meaning. You have to remember that a psychic is known to be someone who will have the ability to see into the future.

The psychic will be able to predict if there is a natural disaster that might occur. A medium, on the other hand, will have the ability to allow spirits of other people who have already passed on to speak through him/her. Mediums may use different means to try to communicate the messages of those who have passed on. One of the most common ways is through automatic writing.

Foremost, it is recommended you understand that a medium has the abilities of a psychic, but some psychics do not have the ability to become mediums. One of the abilities that mediums have but not achievable by psychics is the ability to communicate with the spirits present in the afterlife.

Another thing that is beyond the capability of a psychic is the functionality of a medium serving as the channel between the afterlife and the world of the living. On the contrary, a psychic has the ability to use various spiritual channels to foretell the future.

Take, for example, a psychic who has the ability to provide for you about love, relationships, money, or career. A medium does not have this ability to foresee and foretell about the future. A medium usually makes access to the spirit world to transmit its message; whereas, psychic deals with the presence and aura that could influence the person's future.
