:shrug: Hi all thanks for all the reply’s I really appreciate them.
Another question I have is, Phsycic’s Mediums and Clairvoyants do they have the same qualities? Do you think it’s a gift that someone has got or do you think that anybody could be a physcic or medium.
I am aware that you can work on qualities, but maybe it’s not meant for everybody.

I don’t suppose there’s a significant difference between mediums and Psychics, although I picture mediums as more of a go-between the spiritual world and ours, whereas a psychic envelopes a broader plain and has a keener sense of the clairs. Of course there are more than clairvoyance (seeing), there’s clairaudience (hearing), clairalience (smelling), clairhombance (tasting), and clairsentience (touching).
We all are likely to have some ability in each, and one or two more than the others. Think back through your life and see if you recall one of them impressing itself on you.May 7, 2003 at 12:56 pm #86666AleviaParticipant
I remember John explaining that every medium is psychic, but not every psychic can be a medium. Anyone can learn to hone their gifts, but not everyone will be at the level of it like John is. Just like everyone can drive a car, but some drivers are better than others.;)

Well I am so glad you asked these questions. The folks here are usually very good about helping to understand the process and answer the ‘technical’ questions. With that, I’ll get the ball rolling.
First, clairvoyance is one of the senses that a psychic or medium may possess. The meaning of the word is “clear seeing”. Basically this is when a psychic received the energy / information through visual clues. John uses the example of when you think. If you are a visual person (ie thoughs come with images in your mind) then you may have more of a tendency to be clairvoyant. The other senses are clairaudience (clear hearing), clairsentient (clear feeling), and the rest listed above. You may hear JE refer to these as the Clairs.
As for your question regarding psychic mediums and clairvoyants, I believe you are actually asking if psychics (clairvoyants?) and mediums are the same thing. JE has a phrase that caught in my head…”All mediums are psychic, but not all psychics are mediums”. Some psychics talent lies stronger in the ability to pick up on energy from folks on this side where as a medium has developed a strength at connecting with the energy of folks who have crossed to the Other Side. This being said, it segues right into your last question of whether anybody can be a psychic or medium. Again, I love the way JE explains it. We all have the ability to peck out a song or two on the piano, whether it’s chopstiks or some songs we learned in our childhood lessons. But only a few can be a Mozart or Beethoven. Just as JE is a virtuoso in the psychic relm, I don’t believe he’d ever hold himself out to be a concert pianist.
I think that part of our lesson here is associated with finding our own gift and utilizing it to its full potential. John has his gift and you have yours. If you find that you are experiencing connections with energy and it interests you, then you should pursue the potential. For me, I have faced the fact that I would never want to be do John’s job (nor do I have the ability–yes, I’m at the chopsticks level)…I will satisfy myself with being the best at what I do well and satisfy my interest in things psychic by supporting John and learning as much as I can from him and his experiences.

I remember the same thing Lori said. (that according to John every medium is psychic but not every psychic can be a medium).May 7, 2003 at 1:04 pm #86669JudeParticipant

Me, too. I also remember JE saying something like “Every surgeon is a doctor, but not every doctor is a surgeon.” :)May 7, 2003 at 3:37 pm #86675JassieParticipant
Hi Seeking, I agree with everyone here who answered the first part of your question.
On the second part of your question, I feel that anyone can tap into their psychicness.
When someone who is sceptical asks me, I respond by saying that it is a scientific fact that we only use less than 10% of our brain. So, I believe that in the other part of the brain that we don’t use, is where psychic ability comes in. I also believe that since God created us and our brain, then any ability we have comes from God. It’s how we use it that makes it good or evil.
I once got into a conversation about this subject with an acquaintence who is Jehovah’s Witness. They are very fundamental and any mention of psychic ability, then deem as evil and coming from Satan. When I explained how I believe, she couldn’t come back with anything to refute the idea that God gave us all the potential to become psychic.
And because God made each of us differently, I feel that we all have a degree of how psychic we can become.
The analogy of music is a good one. We all can be taught how to read music. It deals with fundamental math and memorization. From that point, you can learn how to sing, or play any musical instrument. But, beyond that, it can come a whole lot easier for some than others. And then there are some that don’t read music, but have the gift of being able to play a song just by hearing it. And, there are some that can read music and play by ear.
Take care, Cary.May 7, 2003 at 7:20 pm #86682DonParticipant

Actually, just to keep us on the straight-n-rarrow, tis a myth that we use only 10% of our brains (click here for more info) … although I think I’m related to a few special cases…. :lwink:May 7, 2003 at 9:49 pm #86687kimkParticipant
Thanks for the info Don. I wanted to dispute that (as a teacher) but hadn’t had time to research it yet! Now I have a site to share with people every time I hear that myth!
Otherwise, I believe that we can all tap into our potential in any area. Practice, practice, practice really applies here.

I know this is an old thread, but, I’d like to explore this more, :coffee:Seeking wrote::shrug: ….. Phsycic’s Mediums and Clairvoyants do they have the same qualities?
Do you think it’s a gift … that someone has got or …
do you think that anybody could be a physcic or medium. …
I am aware that you can work on qualities, but maybe it’s not meant for everybody. Seeking :thumbsup: Fun questions! :thumbsup: 1. One aspect I did not see covered here is the ‘common useage’;
Usually, when people say Clairvoyant, they mean ‘able to see the future’.
Medium, to the general public means able to ‘talk to the dead’. :angel:
General useage of Phychic is a bit of every thing, and less clear to me. Is it mind reader, see the future, cards, palm reading, etc.? JE stresses that ‘all mediums are psychic, but not all pcychics are mediums.’
2. Gift or ______? Yes, I think it is a gift, but a difficult one.
For a long time I have looked for an expression of; blessing = curse = gift = talent. Now, with better control, I’m more comfortable with it. More like; blessing = responsibility = gift = talent.
:shrug: Anyone got sugestions?
Depends on if you can, both control it, and get some psychic self-defence going. Then again, some people are cut out to work in a hospital or law enforecment, some are not. Difficult with or without talent.
The horrors, like on the TV show ‘Medium’ remind me, of some people I have known over the years. They were overwhelmed. :eek:
Most of them, I think, wanted to shut it out, not control it. Because they rejected the gift, they also rejected, and could not consider psychic self-defence, to control the side effects. :surprise: No one likes homework, but like taxes, it is the responsible thing to do.
3. 4. Are you asking if people, Got it or not? Yep, some people have very little, some people have more than they can handle, some people are so amazing there is no other way to explain it. :lwink:
If it is litterally number of brain cells used or not, there is a quote [maybe, Edison] “… 90% perspiration, 10% inspiration” But I also think, that some of us start with 2%, and some 11%. :hmm:
5. Is it meant for everyone? NO, but that goes for anything, and any talent. A talented artists, might also do counterfit or graffitti. Some computer people are hackers or write viruses…. :(
2,3,4,5 I think everyone starts with some gift of talent. Then, has to find out what. There are a lot of strings attatched. Often you have to 1. work hard at being centered and grounded, 2. a good person, responsible, 3. set up defences and boundaries. 4. keep some stuff to your self.
Then, finally, work on the skills. :rosary:
For example, sometimes we enjoy a sport or hobby that we are not very talented at. But we do it! for fun! You get better, with practice and good teachers. :jumper: [thanks, all of you]
If you are very talented you get much better, faster. And both practice and lessons, speed up the process. And keep you safe. JE, uses the car driving example. Are you a race driver or drive to work?
Well, that’s my 2+ cents worth,
