What's the difference between clairvoyance and mediumship when it comes to communicating with beings, entities and spirit guides?
When it comes to dealing with beings, I get asked this question a lot from my students and those in my Psychic Awakening Facebook groups.
To answer this question, first I'm going to give a quick definition of each. More in-depth explanations are found in my psychic training book, "Journey of the Awakened Psychic."
Then, I will give the advantages and disadvantages of each...
What is clairvoyance?
When you break down the word, "clairvoyance", it's broken down into two parts: "Clair" means "clear". "Voyance" stands for "seeing". In other words, "clear seeing".
What this means is when it comes to energy and communicating with beings, you can "see" the energy of these beings when opening your third eye.
When it comes to clairvoyance, the images you see will often be colors, shapes, symbols, silhouettes, the outlines of a being. When it comes to seeing angels, for example, many will literally see the angel's wings or the halo of an angel.
What's the advantage of tapping into your 3rd eye clairvoyantly?
There are two main advantages I'll discuss here:
1) A picture paints a thousand words
Ever hear that saying, a picture paints a thousand words? You might get simply a color when tuning into the energy of a being.
And yet, when you observe that color, you notice...
- Is it bright?
- Is it faded?
- Is heavy-looking
- Is it more like static?
- Are there multiple shades appearing?
When viewing clairvoyantly through your third eye, one thing I remind my students of over and over again is this:
It's no accident nor is it a coincidence that what you're seeing is what you're meant to see.
So in that regard, when you do get an image, the next step is to then allow for the flow of the "thousand words" or message to come through on that vision.
I cover exactly how to do this in days 4 and 5 of my free Awaken Your Psychic Gifts in 5 Days Challenge training.
2) You can "view from afar"
What do I mean by this? In a moment, I will talk about how mediums work with energy.
However, for now, understand that when you look at energy versus channeling that energy, then you can be more of a neutral observer.
It's the difference, for example, between watching a football game from the stands versus actually playing in the field playing the game.
Clairvoyants observer energy. Mediums experience energy.
Why is this an advantage for clairvoyants?
When you're not actually in the energy, then you can be a bit more neutral to what you are observing.
This is neither good, bad, better than mediumship. However...
When starting off, many awakening psychics are first extremely overwhelmed when first tapping into their gifts.
By viewing the energy from afar first, then, then you have a better chance of not being overwhelmed or consumed by the energy you're viewing.
Now that we covered clairvoyance, let's move onto mediumship.
What is mediumship?
Unlike clairvoyant who see energy, mediums experience energy with the body.
In one classic scene in the movie Ghost, a being enters the body of the character, a medium, played by Whoopi Goldberg.
In that scene, the being, in that case a dead person, saw that there was an opening to come into Whoopi's body.
In that moment, Whoopi in a sense became that being. She was experiencing the energy of that being. She talked like that being. Her facial expressions changed. She even looked and sounded unlike herself.
To be a medium, it's not only about channeling beings. Mediums can channel all kinds of energies to be experienced.
What's the advantage of mediumship and channeling energies?
As above, I'll cover two advantages of mediumship:
1) You can become the energy or the being you are channeling
In more advanced trance mediumship programs I've been part of, we work with beings in a very specific way.
First, you create RULES with the world of spirit in order to work with you. Especially since it's YOUR body, you want to be very specific with how your body is used.
Picture your body as a million dollar violin used by the world's top violinists.
- Would you let just anyone play this violin?
- Wouldn't you have rules before anyone even touches this violin?
- And wouldn't you want a level of skill before letting that violin be played?
That said, once those rules are set up, there are agreements set between you and the being you want to to channel, then you can allow the being to use your voice box, use your body, or deliver messages that way.
By that point, if you want to channel Jesus or some Archangel, then you get to experience that level of energy which is truly an amazing experience!
2) You get more direct messaging
Unlike seeing a "picture that paints a thousand words" (which is definitely not a bad thing by any stretch!!!), when you channel the message of a being, you get the exact words directly.
In my experience of channeling this way, there are words that will come out of my mouth that definitely are words I wouldn't use in everyday conversation.
Even the diction, the cadence of the sentences, or even the tone of voice can change.
So what are the disadvantages of each?
First of all, I know of many who practice BOTH clairvoyance and mediumship. The last thing I want is for this to come across as one being better than the other.
As a matter of fact, I have many mediums who come my way as students who want to better see out of their third eye clairvoyantly.
There are clairvoyants who see beings and entities all the time who want to channel messages better...
That said, here are the disadvantages of each approach:
Disadvantage of clairvoyance
As noted above, clairvoyants have the advantage of viewing from afar. In a way, what this means is you're viewing from a more neutral vantage point.
What many natural mediums will say who enter my clairvoyant training is th

Want to meditate more so you can tap into your psychic gifts?
You might want to feel you’re breathing again by meditating but you feel tired and immobilize on getting it done. Some of us may feel like doing nothing and instead of working with a Pre-planned task. Later instead, start to watch our favorite Netflix Shows.
In times like this, how do you handle days when you don’t feel motivated? In the following sections, you will learn my 3 tips to get motivated to meditate. It will show you how it helps me make the most of my everyday psychic gifts development.
1.Understanding the 80/20 rule when it comes to meditating and your psychic gifts
The 80/20 rule or the Pareto principle was a method wherein the rule of thumb is that 80 percent results of any part of our lives are an average to 20 percent of which is accountable for it. (Well this is how the broadest term means.)
Often your moods are gonna feel average. 80 percent of which most of the time you will feel good and feel like nothing to do for the rest of the day. While the remaining 20 percent of your time this is where you have to view yourself accountable.
In this 20 percent – 10 percent of the top of it you will feel ecstatic, feeling like on top of the world where almost all dopamine hormones are releasing to your body, while the bottom 10 percent is when you feel crappy and worthless not knowing what to do. and for this remaining bottom brings us to the 2nd tip;
2. Identifying the Below 20 percent to create a relevant plan of action.
Whether 10 percent optimize to or 10 percent crappy and boredom always plan for what is coming. The key reasoning is to be liable for every action. When you make the plan during this 20%f of your mood you are giving yourself a reflection to do it now because the rest 80 percent of your decision making (mood) will be a rip-off average.
For example, when planning to meditate on your psychic gifts your first step is to set the exact time and the right environment to practice it. Setting up the environment and the time is already 20 percent of your plan since these factors can be an accountable value to the average which is meditation (80 percent).
3. Work with Your Psychic Gifts at the bare minimum.
Everyone talks about how to make their goals when it comes to meditating and awakening their psychic gifts – but no one talks about how to carry them out especially when you are not at your best.
Now that you have found out what matters most and how to plan it. The next step is to take action into it. If you will wait for a better tomorrow to do it, you will have the same day as an average day. Rather than waiting for that imaginary day to come-around. Take a small step or bare minimum every single day to achieve your plans. By doing so, you will never feel bad about that then one whole day not doing anything.
Being committed to a goal even at a small bare minimum will even give you a sense of higher motivation. This time you have an option to do the extra and follow-up with a task which will lead to better psychic development.
The key is to commit doing one thing, every single day.
What if you can commit to doing the following:
- meditate for 10 minutes
- fill-in with the gold sun every single day
- exploding your rose aura
Would that sense a higher purpose for your awakening journey?
Literally act on it each day. Your life will transform because you took consistent action and not idealizing the version of your time.
Managing your time when developing your psychic gifts is a major factor to keep consistent with your psychic meditation. Engaging yourself everyday to follow meditation is more achievable by following a course you can go along every day. Now is the time to put it on action and start doing, head forward by doing the 5-Day Awakening Challenge – a highly suggested course that will help you discover your gifts in the safest way.

Searching for psychic development training online to train your psychic abilities?
There are many awakening psychics on the planet right now. They're like eggs with little chicks, trembling within, and waiting to hatch at any moment.
Once people do take that brave step to then develop their gifts, they tend to go down one of three paths.
Learn the critical 3 paths to psychic development most people take.
3 paths to hone and develop your psychic gifts:
As I describe each of these paths, you may identify with one or more. See which one you resonate with most.
1) Self discovery or self teaching
This is most common pathway to psychic gifts discovery in the beginning. At this stage you may be getting the following signs:
- You see signs like 333, 777, 11:11
- You think of someone and moments later they text you out of nowhere
- You get dreams or premonitions of events coming true
- You get messages from your spirit guides or loved ones who've already passed away
At this stage you're asking, "Is this even real?" Or, "Am I crazy?"
Those brave enough at this stage may meditate often. Or, they pay attention to the signs and are asking, "What does that sign mean?"
Going down this particular pathway of psychic awakening can only take you so far, however.
Which leads to the next pathway of psychic development.
2) Searching for psychic development training
Unlike say even 10 years ago, there's now a ton of information online.
Having all this availability is great! I know I had bought my own fair share of psychic training books back in the day! And this was before the internet really blew up.
From the number of views some of these youtube videos are getting, there are definitely a TON of people searching online for answers.
The issue at this stage is, however, you're wondering, "How reliable are these online psychic resources?"
Can you trust them? How do you know you have a credible psychic teacher?
Not only is credibility an issue, many at this stage need even more. They want feedback from a mentor and need VALIDATION.
This leads to the next pathway of psychic development training.
3) Honing your psychic gifts with a trusted guide and mentor
By this stage, you're searching for even more answers. You're asking even deeper questions by this stage including:
- Is what I'm sensing even REAL?
- How did I even get that message or sign in the first place?
- Why do I keep getting the same signs (333, 777, 12:12) over and over again?
Essentially, questions like these can't be answered by some random YouTube video.
Everyone's situations and experiences are unique. At this point, you're then searching for unique answers, right?
Having a been-there-done-that psychic teacher or mentor by your side is critical at this stage.
By the stage of the game, many have been exploring on their own. More likely than not, you've encountered some strange spirit guide, being or entity. Or, you've encountered some weird energy that just doesn't make any sense.
At this stage you NEED answers.
It's at this stage that many do end up searching for psychic development training online.
What stage of psychic development are you at?
Fortunately, no matter what stage of psychic development you are at, there are plenty of resources available.
