The word Psychic comes from the Greek word Psyche, meaning "breath of life", i.e. "soul or spirit". Someone who is Psychic is said to be in touch with their, and anybody else's, soul. Therefore they can perform a soul reading, where they can connect with someone's soul, through their aura energy field (which is really an extension of the body), and read information about a person's past, present, and possible future.
The word Clairvoyant comes from the French for Clear Seeing. Nowadays the word Clairvoyant is often use to describe someone with Psychic powers because they can "clearly see" things most people cannot, including the future.
There are other "Clairs" as well. Clairsentience means clear sensing or feeling, Clairaudience means clear hearing, Clairgustance is clear smelling. As one famous psychic once said, "sometimes I see, sometimes I feel, sometimes I hear and sometimes I smell." They then wondered why everyone laughed!
Mediumship is when a psychic raises their energy in order to act as a conduit of information direct from the spirit world. The word medium means the thing in which something is transported or transmitted. That is what we say when we talk of the medium of television or the media when referring to television, radio, newspapers, etc. They transmit information from person to person. A Spiritual Medium transmits information from a spirit, be that a departed loved one or a guide (guardian angel), to someone on the earth plane.
Mediumship is a very tricky art and might be likened to tuning in a radio receiver to a radio transmitter when neither knows the exact frequency, and that frequency keeps drifting due to atmospheric disturbance. One perfectly transmitted message may arrive at the other end garbled and with words missing.
It is often said that all Mediums are Psychic, but not all Psychics are Mediums.
Readings and Messages
When psychics give "readings", it means they are reading you and your aura. Mediums give messages from the "other side" of life.
If someone from the "other side" comes through with a comment about your life, it's just their opinion, probably voiced in the same way as when they were on "this side", it's still your choice as to whether or not to accept their advice .
Anne is a developed Spiritual Medium and can therefore link with Spirit to see if there are any messages for you from departed loved ones or your guides. She can also perform what is called a "Spiritual Assessment", where she can link with your guides and discuss with you your own spiritual development. As a gifted Clairvoyant, Anne can also link with you to give a highly detailed reading of your life.
