I’ve brought together some of the most asked questions about being a psychic or a medium. These are some of the main questions asked about Jane and my work by journalists.
Is Everyone Psychic?
Up to a point. You get a certain feeling about them. It’s difficult to explain how you know this, but certain people you feel are open. You certainly meet people whom you know are never going to become psychics in a million years because they’re completely closed to it, but I think everybody has the potential. It’s a natural gift and would be useful. Knowing who’s good and who’s bad would be very good when it comes to bonding and sex, wouldn’t it?
How do Tarot Cards Work?
You don’t have to have a special psychic gift to read the Tarot Cards. It is a common misconception that tarot readers are clairvoyants. Tarot Card reading, like palmistry, is an interpretative skill that is learned from books. With so many people jumping on the New Age bandwagon the sitter must beware. Today finding someone who can interpret the cards and who also has a psychic gift is very much due to luck.
So how do you tell the future with Tarot Cards? The psychologist Carl Jung gave us the scientific theory of Synchronicity that states that “Anything done at a particular moment in time has the qualities of that moment in time”. In other words, the fall of the cards is decided by past, present, and future events.
Every Tarot card has a specific meaning represented by the symbolism of the card’s pictures. The imagery is a mixture of good and bad auguries.
What is a Medium?
A medium provides evidence of the survival of the human personality beyond the physical state we call death. S/he is the link between the two worlds communicating with people who have died through mind-to-mind contact. The psychic help a medium provides is to give proof of life after death.
Mediumship is the ability to communicate with people you know in the afterlife. Its aim is to prove the survival of the human personality after death and to help the bereaved come to terms with their loss. Mediumistic sittings are not for fortune-telling but are experimental sessions to give evidence of survival. Any attempt to communicate with Spirit is, by its very nature, purely experimental and therefore, results can never be guaranteed.
What is a Psychic?
A psychic is someone who has extra-sensory abilities. These may include clairvoyance, telepathy, precognition, and psychokinesis. The word psychic is sometimes used as an all-inclusive umbrella term to include mediumship (spirit communication) and fortune-telling. The type of psychic help a psychic gives may relate to solving life problems.
Psychic practitioners tend to give readings that deal with issues in a person’s life such as their romantic situation, career opportunities, etc. Their reading may include predictions of the future.
How long after passing can a spirit person make contact?
The short answer is: immediately. There is nothing stopping us from contacting our loved ones the minute we leave our physical bodies. Having said that, however, people who have no knowledge of the continuation of life may take a little longer to adjust to their new surroundings. They meet with family and friends and when they realize they can contact their families left on earth, they will seek the necessary help to do so.
A medium, or someone who has extensive knowledge of spirit communication, will know what has happened at death. They will adjust very quickly to their new life and can make contact as soon as they wish.
