Differentiating a Psychic from a Prophet - Are They Really Different?

By Tana Hoy

People have always questioned things that are unexplainable by the rules and boundaries of science. Like for example, the powers and capabilities of the psychic realm, and that of a psychic, because it is a phenomena outside the reasoning of both science and logic. But then, do you ever wonder why people have a different view when we mention the concept of prophets and prophecies?

To think of it, a psychic and prophet, are somewhat similar, but then, how people accept the concept differs. You may ask, what is the difference then between a psychic and a prophet?

Well, they are alike in most parts, but then, society does not put them in the same level, since prophets tend to be more favored by people compared to psychics. So is there really a difference between a psychic and a prophet?

To start, let us define what a psychic is. Psychics refer to persons who have an ability to perceive information hidden from the normal senses through their extrasensory perception, or what is known as ESP. Persons who possess special gifts like talents of divination, fortune telling, clairvoyant abilities, visions, predictions, and the like, are known to be psychic.

Prophets on the other hand, have been existing throughout history, and they more commonly play a major role in religion. Although by definition, a prophet is a person who has been contacted by, or has encountered, the supernatural or the divine. They serve as an intermediary with humanity, delivering this new found knowledge from the supernatural entity, to other humans. The message that the prophet conveys is called a prophecy.

Basically speaking, the "function" of a psychic and a prophet are somewhat similar -- that is to help humanity. Psychics do this through psychic readings, whereas prophets do this via their prophecies. Aside from this, they both also have the gift of mediumship that allows them to communicate with those in other dimensions (e.g. psychics can communicate with spirits who have passed on, spirit guides, and guardian angels, and prophets communicate with divine beings).

Another fact is, both individuals can give us a better understanding of things in general -- about the past, present, and the future. A psychic does this through readings, while a prophet does this through prophecies.

There may be a lot of similarities between prophets and psychics, yet people still tend to question more the psychic side. Why? Well, because people have been accustomed that prophets are of divine origin, and being divine will follow that it is on the question of religion. These prophecies are blessings for many. People generally have high respects for religion, whatever views it may have, compare to the supernatural ways. However, this does not say though that psychic gifts are not blessings. Psychic gifts are as real as prophecies. In fact, everyone has an innate psychic side, and it is even the inborn psychic gift within these prophets that give them their extraordinary abilities. - 30438

A Psychic Medium - How Do They Communicate with the Other Side?

By Tana Hoy

As they say, a psychic medium is not your ordinary psychic. In fact, a psychic medium is a very powerful gifted individual because aside from their psychic gifts, they also have the gift of mediumship. Yes, they can communicate with the other side!

A psychic medium does not only communicate with those in the after life, they can also communicate with other spiritual entities. Let us enumerate what a psychic medium is capable of as far as "communicating with the unseen" is concerned. A psychic medium can see, feel, hear, and even talk, with spirit guides, those who have passed on, and guardian angels. But then, you might wonder, how do psychic mediums communicate with these spiritual beings?

The mystery behind the psychic realm is sought after by many experts. But somthings in life are better left unexplained and better left unexplored and this is one of the things that make life interesting, the mysteries and the supernatural. For it keeps us a float and full of hope for much better things to come and the psychic realm is a major part of it.

For your much better understanding of the topic at hand some facts must first be presented. First, that their is another dimension that co-exist with our world and that it is beyond the boundaries of space and time. Next, This world is parallel to our world but only a psychic medium can see and communicate to this world.

The connection established by a psychic medium with the other dimension can either be voluntary or involuntary. There are times that a psychic medium will just be visited by a spirit or given a message from the other dimension, out of the blue, and there are times where a psychic medium will seek to establish contact at will.

When a psychic mediums seeks to communicate with the other side, the first thing they do is summon these spiritual entities. This is done by psychic mediums through channeling their energies, and this allows them to channel into another dimension. At times, psychic mediums can even go into a trance as they connect with the other dimension. Once a connection with the desired spiritual being is made, a psychic medium will now attempt to communicate (either by sending or receiving a message) with the spirits.

Mediumship can come in different forms. One is physical mediumship, a method in where there is physical evidence of the communication with the spirit -- this can come in the form of a writing, or even the spirit entering a person's body to relay the message. The other form of mediumship is referred to as mental mediumship. Mental mediumship, as the name suggest, implies that the psychic medium uses telepathy to communicate with those on the other side of the veil. This form of mediumship leaves no physical evidence that a communication took place.

For a little analogy, a psychic medium's ability to see what is in the other side is like a webcam, being able to see what another person is doing despite the distance across the globe, and despite of the time difference. So while webcam is powers through technology, a psychic medium relies channeling of energies or forces, to make the connection possible. - 30438

A Psychic Medium: Understanding How They Can See Regardless of Time and Space

By Tana Hoy

Do you want to know what the future holds? Would you like to know that your loved ones on the other side are ok? Believe it or not, both of these things are possible thanks to a psychic medium. There may be many speculations and arguments on the possibility of seeing the future and talking with spirits from the other side, but now, all these skepticism have been proven wrong. This is because a psychic medium is capable to not only see the future, but they can also communicate with the spirits of those who have passed on.

A psychic medium is not just your ordinary psychic; they are more special. By definition, a psychic medium has both a psychic gift (or even many psychic gifts), as well as the ability that allows them to communicate beyond life's borders.

People seek a psychic medium when they want a very accurate psychic reading. At times, psychic mediums can also play a vital role in a crime investigation because of their special ability to see, hear, feel, and even communicate with the spirits of the victims who have passed on. People also go to a psychic medium when they want to communicate with a loved one who has passed on. So now you might wonder, how is it possible that a psychic medium can see the future?

Why do people choose to visit a psychic medium rather than a regular psychic? Well, a psychic medium can give a more accurate reading. They have more precise information in their readings, and they are even sought out to help in crime investigations. Aside from being able to communicate with the other side, a psychic medium is also able to see the future! But how do they do it?

To answer this question, let us go back to how psychic mediums are defined. Basically speaking, a psychic medium is more gifted than just any plain psychic. They have a sixth sense apart from the normal five senses of an ordinary person. This sixth sense is keener, allowing them to communicate with spiritual matters. Also, a psychic medium possesses a more developed third eye, a special characteristic that allows them to see beyond time and space.

For a more concrete explanation, let us compare the psychic medium's gift to a remote camera on your PC, that allows you to see another event happening in a different part of the world. Scientifically speaking, you get a remote visual through the energy transmission of light. For psychic mediums, it's somewhat similar. However, instead of physical distance, they use a very powerful spiritual light energy that can cut across time and space.

There are two ways that a psychic medium may see the future. One way is by voluntary seeing, and the other type is involuntary. The first way is by purposefully channeling their energies to see into the future. The other way is achieved through vision or dreams.

A psychic medium is an amazing individual. Their powers can help others toward a better journey in life. But what is the main reason why people choose see a psychic medium over just any other psychic? It's simply because a psychic medium can not only bridge the gap between the people on the earth plane and the ones on the other side, but they also can see the future, and even ask your loved ones who have passed away, for their insights on your future endeavors. - 30438

The Psychic Mind Language: Understanding the Ways of Telepathy

By Tana Hoy

Was there ever a time in your life wherein for some reason, you could hear someone's thoughts? Or how about knowing what someone was about to say, before he or she had said it? Have you ever experienced wanting something to happen, and at the end, it did happen? If you have experienced either one of these things, it is a sign that you have a psychic ability known as telepathy.

From the authority of definitions, Merriam and Webster, telepathy is defined as "communication from one mind to another by extrasensory means." The word "telepathy" was entered into the English dictionary when it was first coined by a researcher, Fredric W. H. Myers, as far back as 1982, replacing the term "thought-transference." If we are to come up with a simple definition of telepathy, it is the psychic gift that allows people to communicate with the minds of others, without using any tools, but the mind alone. There are other people with this telepathic psychic gift, that could even control the thinking of others!

A person with telepathic abilities is considered to have a very strong extrasensory perception or ESP. There are two forms of telepathy -- it can either be projective or perceptive. A perceptive telepathic is one that can receive and read thoughts of others well. One good example is knowing who is calling before you even answer the phone. On the other hand, perceptive telepathy focuses on projecting or sending thoughts to others, such as thinking of someone to call you and it happens.

This psychic power is so popular these days, that it is often depicted in fictional characters. Take for example from X-Men alone. Professor X and Jean Grey both have telepathic powers. Kids are fond of them, adults do not seem to be. Why? Because they think that these powers are not real. Well yes, these movie characters are just fictional, but telepathy with psychics is real, because psychics are real. In fact, the psychic community calls the telepathic ability as the "psychic mind language".

Despite the many occasions that a psychic has demonstrated telepathy, there are still many out there who still refuse to believe its reality. This is because that there is no scientific basis on how any psychic gift came to be, and this is why people doubt the existence of such psychic powers.

Take for example, a baby and his mother. Even if a baby could not speak or use any proper body language to communicate, his mother knows what message the baby wants to convey. This is also true for animals, even without verbal communication, they can understand each other and can work well with each other with good harmony.

The word psychic refers to the mind, and we are all born psychic. This means that all of us has an innate psychic ability within us that lay dormant because we are not aware about it. For individuals who are aware and accept their gifts however, they have reached a stornger telepathic degree than others; and like any other talents, telepathy can be enhanced and further developed as well through acceptance, meditation, and practice.

The psychic mind language of telepathy is indeed a remarkable ability. What is even more remarkable, is that anyone with the right mindset and will power, has the ability to learn this gift. - 30438
