The spiritual path is an aspect to closely pay attention to since there are several concepts and typologies that most of times confuse us. As a matter of fact, within the mystical and paranormal field such concepts as clairvoyant and psychics turn out to be difficult and confusing.
In some cases you do not know, indeed, what the differences are between a psychic or a clairvoyant, and which of them should you consult. This controversy is closely related with the implications and similarities of these two different natural gifts that enter in the same branch of paranormal powers and abilities.

Taking into account the dictionary definitions psychics is a person apparently sensitive to nonphysical, merely the mind, telepathy and extra sensory perception. On the other hand, a clairvoyant is a person that perceives things beyond the natural range of sense.

Based on these dictionary definitions it is practically impossible to create concrete and reliable concepts since they are both until certain point alike.

In general terms, there are people that claim being both clairvoyants and psychics, nonetheless, the differences should be well stated.

A psychic is a person that should be able to literally read you. The word psychics derives from the Greek one psychiko and it refers to the mind or mental. Hence, a psychic utilizes the mind as the main tool for telling you about your past, present, future, among others. They carry out a mental connection during the psychic reading session that allows them to interpret your energies.

As regards clairvoyants the concept it is completely different. There are at least 4 types of “clair”. First of all, we have the clairvoyant which mean clear vision. As the name reads, the clairvoyant is the person able to see with the mind’s eyes. In other words, to see objects, images, places, people with its mind. The clairvoyant is not a simple fortuneteller but a well-trained specialist on clear vision reading and interpretation.

Moreover, there is another type of “ clair” which is the clairaudience meaning clear hearing. This person is usually focused on listening to the spirits’ information; therefore, they practically work as mediums (the channel through which the spirits provide such data as names, addresses, dates, among others). According to some clairaudiences this ability is like feeling a voice inside the head telling you information.

The third type of “clair” is clairsentience which means clear sensing. As the name reveals these people mainly deal with the senses, feelings, emotions transmitted by the spirits. They experience the emotion or sufferings someone suffered in life and they inform it to the person that is receiving the message.

The last typology of “clair” is clairtangency which means clear touching. The clairtangency hold an object or touch an area and perceive information about the owner.

The Clairvoyants and the Psychics devote their lives to those that need of their help, vision and abilities. You have at your hand the power of deciding which of them will truly fulfill your objectives and needs.
