When people come into the shop for a reading, the most common question I get asked, is what is the difference between a psychic reading as opposed to a tarot card reading, clairvoyant reading or session with a medium? Great question as each title has a slightly different approach to a reading.
A Psychic is someone who just knows things about you, your past and your life, and is able to help you with guidance in any area of your physical and spiritual life. They generally draw on their own intuition, connection to your soul, guides and subsconscious mind which is where you future is stored. Some gifted psychics can also tap into universal wisdom and knowledge, the akashic records and spirit guides to get accurate information.
When a Psychic does a reading they can also read your energy field and do not rely on the use of jewelery (psychometry) or contact with people that have passed (medium & clairvoyant), or cards (tarot readers). Though many Psychics are talented enough to incorporate clarivoyance, mediumship and tarot into their reading.
Just as there are good and not so good people in the world, so it is with the psychic realms. Naughty energies and intentions can greatly interfere with psychic if they are not conscious enough or protecting themselves from that interference when they read. This is why you may not always get an accurate reading from a Psychic who is less experienced in this area.
At Body Plus Spirit New Age Store and Healing Centre our Psychics are very conscious of the different realms their information comes from, and so they are not only well protected, they also use Tarot Cards and spiritual techniques to make sure the information they receive for you is coming from a pure source.
Someone who reads tarot cards is usually, but not always, psychic as well. The client will choose some cards, the tarot reader lays them out in a spread and reads off them, their position and meaning. Each card has a meaning and corresponds to a particular part of the journey in the life of a man, woman or child. Each card means something in relationship to the other cards in the spread. It’s in the reading of the relationship between the cards, in relation to what you’ve asked or want guidance on, that great accuracy and detail can be had. Only a professionally trained and experienced tarot reader can see the relationships between the cards.
How tarot card readings can be more accurate than just a psychic reading without the cards, is that the cards don’t lie. A card reading is more deliberate because the client has picked the cards. When you combine a tarot reader with psychic abilities, as we do here at Body Plus Spirit, you have a wealth of information to draw from to help the client gain the clarity and guidance they are looking for.
There are clairvoyants (people who see things), clairsentients (people who feel things) and clairaudients (people who hear things). The term clairvoyant refers to people who can see spirit, visions of your life, past present and future. Though many clairvoyants also feel things and hear messages of spiritual guidance.
A clairvoyant reading generally does not have tarot cards. It’s a straight reading between you and the clairvoyant plus whatever realms they are able to tap into. Many clairvoyants are also psychic and can read tarot cards.
A medium is the term we give to someone who is the medium between the client and the spirit and consciousness of someone who has passed over. They communicate with the spirit world of those who have left the earth. They hear and see dead people if you will, and can communicate messages to you. They are more specialised at contacting dead people than they are about seeing into your future, unless of course either they or the spirits they are contacting are psychic.
Many mediums are also psychic, clairvoyant and have the ability to read tarot cards. Generally though if you were to go to a medium you’d be wanting messages and guidance from loved ones who have passed.
Because everyone is different, has different needs and we pride ourselves in have the best readers in the Sunshine Coast, we like to have readers that are gifted in all four realms: Psychic, Tarot Readers, Clairvoyant & Medium. To make sure you get what you came for when you book a reading with any of our gifted readers.
