Psychic mediums have the ability to sense and communicate with beings and energies in other dimensions, including the spirits of people who have died. They are often called upon to help people who have unresolved questions for loved ones who have passed away. Psychic mediums may use palmistry, psychometric, or readings from tarot cards or crystal balls to facilitate communication with those in other dimensions. This article includes information on what it means to be a psychic medium, how to improve your psychic abilities, and how to use your abilities in the service of others, whether they be people or spirits.

Method 1
Determine Your Aptitude for Becoming a Psychic Medium

    Know what it means to be a psychic medium. Psychic mediums perceive spirits in other dimensions using one or more of the following abilities:
    • Clairvoyance. Clairvoyant mediums can see spirits, auras, objects and places that are not perceptible to others. People who have passed away may appear to them in visions, or they may be able to vividly sense a place to which they have never been. Psychic mediums see these visions with their third eye, located between the two physical eyes. Everyone has a third eye, but the average person's is closed or too weak to use.
    • Clairaudience. Clairaudient mediums can hear messages from the "other side," either physically or psychically. They are able to communicate with spirits that are thousands of miles away, or in another dimension altogether.
    • Clairsentience . Clairsentient mediums experience psychic communication through pure knowing. They get surges of knowledge given from the spirits, that they then interpret.

    Determine your level of psychic ability. Everyone has some level of psychic abilities, which help us intuit other people's feelings and connect with our spiritual side. Consider the following questions to help you determine your level of psychic ability:
    • Are you a natural psychic medium? Some people begin seeing visions, hearing messages, or strongly feeling the presence of spirits from a very young age. They don't necessarily know what they are experiencing until they get older. Natural psychic medium ship is extremely rare.
    • Are you clairvoyant, clairaudient, or clairsentient? Perhaps you feel on the cusp of developing abilities in one of these areas. You're sensitive and receptive to feelings, emotions, and communications from others, and you've had experiences that you consider to be paranormal.
    • Are you interested in becoming a psychic medium, but have never had a paranormal experience? It's possible to work on certain skills and open up the possibility of flexing your psychic muscles. With some practice, you may be able to open and strengthen your third eye.

    Conduct research on psychic mediumship. One of the best ways to figure out whether you have the capacity to become a psychic medium is to read accounts written by other mediums. Decide whether you recognize yourself in their stories and experiences. Learn as much as you can about the history and practice of psychic medium ship.
    • Read books by psychic mediums, and watch shows that feature them, to get a sense of the paths psychic mediums have taken.
    • Talk to a psychic medium about his or her experiences. Psychic fairs are good places to meet mediums.
    • Beware people purporting to be psychic mediums who may not be the real deal.

Method 2
Develop Your Psychic Abilities

    Heighten your awareness. Psychic medium ship is about being open to communication from the "other side." Try the following methods for raising your awareness and opening your third eye:
    • Pay attention to your intuition. Don't dismiss your dreams. Acknowledge the odd feelings and urges you feel. Recognize the various energies that affect you throughout the day.
    • Spend quiet time by yourself every morning. After you wake in the morning, before starting your day, spend time allowing thoughts and emotions to wash over you. Don't control what comes; welcome and absorb it. Open your mind to the possibility of receiving communications from energies generated outside yourself.
    • Try free writing. Write what comes to your mind the moment it arrives. Don't judge the words, and avoid editing them. Read back over what you wrote a few hours later. The messages you receive from other beings won't always be clear, but writing them down may help you find patterns.
  2. Image titled Become a Psychic Medium Step 5
    Try actively communicating with spirits. A good way to start is by finding a medium ship circle, a group of mediums who gather to receive messages from the other side. This will give you an introduction to the setting that should be arranged for effective communication. Once you're comfortable with the process, try it on your own, or invite other mediums to join you.
    • Set up a room in a quiet part of your house. Dim or turn off the lights. A few candles may help create a spiritual setting.
    • Say a prayer or chant to ready the space for communication and call on spirits to join the circle.
    • Recognize the presence of the spirit or spirits that join you. Allow yourself to receive images, words, feelings, smells - whatever the spirits wish to communicate.
    • Ask the spirit to identify itself. When you receive an answer, confirm it out loud. Continue communicating with the spirit by asking questions and receiving answers.
    • Know that at this early stage you will not be able to control the effect the communication has on you. You may feel frightened, or you may experience pain. As you develop your skills as a medium, you'll be better able to control the way you communicate with the other side.

    Consider taking a workshop or course in psychic medium ship. Bookstores and spiritual centers in your area may offer educational resources. Do online research and attend psychic fairs and conferences to find out more about workshops, classes and even certifications for new psychic mediums.

Method 3
Share Your Psychic Abilities With Others

  1. Image titled Become a Psychic Medium Step 7
    Offer to work with someone to facilitate communication with his or her loved one. If you have a friend or family member who is distressed about unfinished business with someone who has passed away, offer to use your abilities to help him or her.
    • During the séance or trance period, note that as a medium you should not ask too many questions of the person you are helping. A good medium never asks the client to tell them the name of the deceased or any details; otherwise, it is not a valid reading. It is up to you to validate the deceased loved one's name, occupation in life, birth date, physical description, how they passed, and so on.
    • Remember that doing a psychic reading is a big responsibility. It can be a very emotional process for all parties involved.
  2. Image titled Become a Psychic Medium Step 8
    Consider starting a business as a psychic medium. It is possible to have a very successful career as a psychic medium once you're confident in your abilities. Build a website to advertise your services. Set up a room in your house or rent a space to be used for the purpose of holding sessions with clients.
    • Be sure to incorporate your small business according to the laws where you live.
    • Talk to other mediums about the business models that have worked for them, including how much they charge for each reading.
    • Participate in psychic fairs and conferences. Print business cards and pass them out at psychic fairs and conferences, or sign up to set up your own table.


  • A credible and accurate psychic medium is not a mind reader. Remember that physic mediums are human, too, and they can make mistakes.

Personal awareness tips:

If you have had spiritual experiences as a child/adult..i.e see, hear, touched or sense spirit around you even if you have never had any interest in being a medium whatsoever you are already a medium, but you need to join a development circle to open and excel at your gifts.

REMEMBER! every medium is a psychic not every psychic is a medium, we are not all mediums unfortunately, if you feel the call and the interest is niggling away at you every day then this is your calling.

don't join any circle only sit at a circle that you feel comfortable with, unfortunately mediumship is the most jealous gift there is even most working mediums will not tell you what you can do because if you have the ability to be clairvoyant (which is what all mediums want to be) you will never be told this because the envy is rife.

Most working mediums are not fully developed most are clairsentient they can only sense and see spirit within the third eye all these working mediums want to be clairvoyant so again only go with your gut feeling when joining a circle, no one needs to tell you are a medium you know within yourself, your guides will help you to a development circle where the medium is humble and helpful teacher.


  • If you are serious about developing your skills, it is highly encouraged to find a skilled teacher who can assist you in a Psychic Development class or one on one. Psychic skills can be very powerful, and should be used wisely.
