Find Out If You Are a Psychic Medium with these 7 Signs

Essentially, psychic mediums have the ability to sense and communicate with entities in higher dimensions. They most commonly communicate with the spirits of people who have passed to the other side. What makes a psychic medium different from being a straight-forward medium is having enhanced abilities in all the psychic senses. 

1. You May Be Highly Sensitive to Others

Natural psychic mediums may be highly sensitive to others. This means that you sometimes feel out of the loop with friends and family. Or, you may feel as though you don’t fit in. Even joking comments may be offensive to you, and you might feel you are being ridiculed unfairly.

2. You May be Super Sensitive to Sounds, Odors, and Harsh Lighting

This holds true for me. Ever since I can remember, I’ve been sensitive to loud sounds, strong odors, and harsh lighting. If someone brings hamburgers or anything oniony into the room, it’s hard for me to handle. Deafening music with a strong beat is sometimes unbearable, and being under harsh lighting for any length of time usually has me heading for the door.

3. You May Have Vivid Dreams

Most people don’t remember their dreams in detail or only have a vague recollection of it. However, sometimes, you may wake up with clear memories of your dreams. People who are natural psychic mediums often experience vivid dreams that seem extremely real. If a dream is especially unsetting, the feeling of it may last all day and into the next day.

Or, the content of a vivid dream can cause feelings of joy and otherworldly comfort. It’s as if you are in a heavenly place and are experiencing scenes from that dimension. You may even find yourself waking up wishing you could return to the dream.

4. Hearing Voices that Shouldn’t Be There

From a young age, some individuals  hear whispers and voices when no one else can. This is called clairaudience. More specifically, clairaudience is the ability psychically hear with your mind’s inner hearing. Of course, parents may be alarmed by this. But, for you, it’s normal, and some parents can’t understand it or refuse to. Hopefully, you weren’t diagnosed as having schizophrenia. Sadly, this has happened to many natural-born psychic mediums, and they might spend many years undoing the damage of an incorrect diagnosis.

5. Knowing Things Will Happen Before They Actually Do

If you often get a sense of something about to happen, and it does, this is a sure sign of a psychic medium. It’s called the gift of precognition or prophecy. Precognition is the knowledge or perception of future events. This psychic ability is typical for natural psychic mediums and one of the most frequently occurring. 

My most significant event of precognition was when I had a waking vision of the death and destruction caused by hurricane Katrina in 2005. It is by far the most emotionally and physically upsetting instance of precognition I’ve ever experienced.

6. You Experience Clairvoyant Events

Clairvoyance is the ability for psychic seeing—both psychically and intuitively—people, places, objects, and events not usually experienced with our physical senses of sight, seeing, hearing, or smell. Or, you may be going about your business, and suddenly a strange image pops into your mind’s eye that is outside of your normal daydreaming. Additionally, you often see  flashes of light or sparkles in the room that have no explanation behind them. 

Sometimes these visions involve people and things you already know about and seem to be sending you a vital message. These messages can also sometimes send you an alert that either something is amiss or that someone in your life needs attention.

7. You Pick Up Vibes in a Place Easily

Have you ever walked into a room and felt the energy there and it wasn’t great? This is the ability of Clairsentience. Most people have clairsentience to some extent, but for a psychic medium, it’s a far more impactful. Being highly sensitive to the world around you is something that every psychic medium experiences at some time or another. 

8. You know Things about People and Places Without Knowing How

If you suddenly spout advice to a friend or co-worker that turns out to be relevant in their lives, you are engaging in your psychic sense of claircognizance. Claircognizance is the art of psychically knowing that is an awareness or thought previously unknown to us that bears truth. Often these events involve channeling messages of wisdom from your Spirit Guides, but you’re unconscious of this fact. People who are strong in claircognizance are very much prone to be a natural psychic medium.

In conclusion: 

What makes a psychic medium different from being a straight-forward medium is additionally having highly advanced abilities via the psychic senses. Having any of the above indicators may signal that you are a natural psychic medium. Whether you’re a practicing psychic medium or thinking about developing your skills in Mediumship, these indicators let you know that you’re on the right track.

  1. Thank you! How wonderful to learn that my experiences are real and that the abilities i could struggle to even articulate are experienced by others, and have names. I’m’ slightly surprised yet feel a bit vindicated to recgnize 5 clairs. Probably 3 are stronger and the others will improve now they are identified to me.

  2. Very cool!! Thank you!! About the Clairaulience, can looking at pictures of people past and presnt trigger this as well? When I look at images/think of my great grandmother Vivian (Who I have never met and passed away years before I was born) I get this smell of.. like.. sticky perfume. I know, it sounds weird. But even if I never met her, my grandmother (Her daughter) says that she worn “Sticky perfume” for special nights. Is this a case of this or no?

  3. Well, I don’t communicate with spirits but I communicate with the gods, who are very much alive. I can’t see them with my eyes, only in my mind. So I decided that if I could “see” them, I could draw them.

  4. Ive always known theres something about me but didn’t know about this as a practice. I saw 911 happen 2 weeks before it happened. Another time my neighbor was having a heart attack and when i touched him he was getting better and i was laying on the ground fighting death and when i got up i was soaked in sweat and a puddle of sweat on the ground. Also i can tell most peoples emotions even when theyer trying to hide them. But i honestly just thought that was normal and everyone else lives in a none caring self centered world. Im intrigued to learn about mediumship but at the same time sort of nervous

  5. I sometimes get a premonition of someone in the room with me or I feel like I’m being watched, is that normal? It’s like someone is trying to tell me something but I can’t hear it and I’ll get these weird sensations of someones touching me? And I have these dreams (sleeping or sometimes i’ll accidentally slip into a sort of weird daydream) where I see things happen before they happen, but it takes a couple of months for them to happen?

  6. Hi there,

    I don’t know if I have any abilities or not,
    I have seen spirits, and shadows and I have once had an outer body experience.
    I can feel if a place is good or worrying. I just don’t know if I have any powers. I would love to learn.


  7. If you are interested in learning more, we have many courses that may fit what you are looking for to safely further develop your gifts.


  8. Actually Susan, this is normal for many individuals so please don’t feel alone. You may have natural Mediumistic abilities. Have the kinds of dreams you describe means you have premonition dreams. This was common for me as a younger person. They’re partially why I started my Mediumship and Psychic studies. Check out our courses to find the right one for you.
    Best, Carol

  9. How do I get my abilities back, I used to see, hear and just know things, I was in a line at the check-out and the lady in front of me had alot of shopping, the funny thing is i turned to my husband and said “i dont know if i have enough money to pay as i haven’t been to the bank”, my husband said dont be silly you only have a couple of things, next minute the lady in front of usr had to leave her shopping because said didn’t have enough money to pay, or when i was sick in hospital and my ex’s mother came and shook the end of the bed and told me to stop laying around and get home to look after her son and grandchildren, but it has seam to have all stopped, I either don’t dream anymore or don’t remember them,

  10. Hi Sue,

    Sometimes our abilities seem to go away, but they are not gone. This is a normal thing for many. Give it some time and relax about it. I guarantee you’ll start experiencing intuitive events once again.
