There seems to be confusion over clairvoyants and mediums. To help give you an idea of the differences, then here is a quick guide to what both of them are and what they can do…
Medium – is a person who can contact and communicate with spirits that have passed on. They then give the messages from the spirits to the person who is having the reading done.

Clairvoyants – have the ability to see things beyond the normal five senses and are attuned to a higher power that ordinary people arn’t sensitive to. They can read your future and give you answers to your questions.
Sometimes it is confusing if you are not sure of who you actually want a reading done by. If you want to contact a loved one who has passed on, then you should see a medium as they are the ones that can do this for you.
If you want to know what the future holds, then the best person to do this would be a clairvoyant. It all depends on what you want to know from the reading. A clairvoyant will read your energy field and they will also be able to pick up on any problems you are experiencing at the present time.
On the other hand, if you want to contact someone who you are missing and who has passed on, then it would be best for you to see a medium who can relay any messages from your loved ones back to you and let you know that they are safe and well.
Clairvoyance actually means 'clear seeing' which means that they are working with their clairvoyant powers to see images of people or things or places and can describe what they are seeing to you. A clairvoyant will validate things that have happened in the past and things that are happening around you in the present.
With a medium then when someone has passed away from with an illness or condition, then for a split second they will feel a sensation that the person who has passed on felt before they passed on. That is how they can describe to the sitter who the messages are coming from by describing the illness or condition that they had when they were alive.
So when someone calls themselves a clairvoyant/medium, they should be able to describe your loved ones who are in spirit and also to describe things around your homelife. If you are in doubt, then ask your reader how they work, as they will be only too pleased to explain this to you.
I hope that this has explained a little what the differences are between a clairvoyant and a medium. Now all you have to do is to decide which one is the right one for you, or even maybe a combination of both may be the best. Whatever you choose, you will know that you can look forward to a clear and enjoyable reading from someone who cares.
