By contacting these spirits a passageway is made between the 2 dimensions; that of the flesh based living and the spiritual afterlife. A psychic medium is someone who is able to do more than contact these spirits, a psychic medium often times will also have the abilities of clairvoyance or some soft of foretelling ability. A qualified psychic medium can be difficult to locate but once found their abilities are highly useful to a person trying to find spiritual answers and possibly closure to a painful death. As you look for a medium be aware that there are three different types of mediums:
Physical Mediums- A physical medium will bring the spirits in close enough where sounds and movements of the spirits are easily detected. At times these spirits will materialize and show their outline or shapes and may even cause the levitation of physical items. These contacts are also often made with the families of loved ones around a table in a similar fashion to the Trance Medium but there is no taking over of the mediums body. The setting is peaceful, often candles are lit in a dark lit room and the medium will contact the spirit.
Mental Mediums- The mental medium is one who can communicate with spirits telepathically. Their ability is to pick up messages using mental telepathy like an antenna from the afterlife. These messages once received are transferred to those awaiting the information.
