Since time immemorial, humans have sought to predict important events before they happen. Early man and women studied the night sky, weather patterns, and animal behaviours to identify signs and patterns, then interpreted the subtle nuances supplied by nature to foretell upcoming occurrences.
Gifted individuals found they could read signs and symbols easier than others; these individuals became the medicine men and women, shamans, oracles, druids, and gurus of their cultures. Over time, people around the world, such as Egyptians, Celts, Romans, Native Americans, and Chinese, developed their own unique rituals and traditions for divining the future; These traditions form the basis for divination methods used today. Simply put, divination is the practice of predicting the future using specialised tools and rituals. Let us explore some of the various divination methods that have survived into modern times.

You may be forgiven for thinking that psychics and mediums are one and the same. There are actually some psychics who are mediums; however, they are more likely to call themselves a medium, rather than a psychic.
If you are thinking of getting a psychic reading, then it is important that you know the difference between a psychic and a medium, as one may be more suitable for your needs than the other.
What is a psychic?
A psychic is someone who have highly-developed intuition. Some people call this the sixth sense. There are several types of psychic power: Clairvoyance is probably the most well-known and basically means that the psychic is able to see the future. They may get visions or may have prophetic dreams. Clairvoyants often use crystal balls when doing readings, to make the most of their clairvoyant ability. Clairaudience is when the psychic can hear voices or messages from their higher selves that help them predict future events. They may sometimes hear actual voices which give them messages. Clairsentience is when the psychic gets certain feelings, such as butterflies in the stomach, that help them predict future events. Claircognizance is when a psychic just knows things. They can then use this knowledge to inform you of possible events in your future. Clairgustance is when a psychic can smell things that others can’t and they use this to help them understand certain situations.
Psychics use various divinatory tools to perform readings. One of the most popular is the tarot, but some psychics like to use crystal balls or read palms. Often, a psychic will use a variety of tools to give you an all-round reading. When a psychic gives a reading, they will use their intuition when looking at the cards or crystal ball and this will give them the ability to predict events that are likely to come up in the future and some may also be able to see things from your past.

What does the future hold for us? This is something that most of us think about and some of us worry about. We don’t know what is going to happen in the future so we do all that we can to protect ourselves, should our circumstances change for the worse: we take out insurance, in case we get burgled, and we put money aside for a ‘rainy day’. If you are constantly worrying about the future, then try to change your thinking so it is more positive and consider visiting a psychic, as they may be able to help reassure you. A good psychic will be able to predict some of the things that are destined for you; some can predict years ahead, while others will be able to give you a detailed reading for the next few months. Either way, it will help you to realize that the future isn’t something to fear.
Divination, or predicting the future, has been around since the dawn of time – there are passages in the bible that talk about prophets and seers and, in ancient Greece, people visited an oracle, who told them their future in exchange for large sums of money. Nowadays, you can visit a psychic or a medium. A psychic will focus more on divination and a medium will predict your future by communicating with spirits, or your deceased relatives. A reading from a medium may not be as focused on your future, as spirits will give the medium a lot of information from your past, so you will know that the information they tell you about the future is likely to be true. A psychic reading will probably be better, if you want to know what’s in store for you in the future. Mediums are best if you wish to speak with a deceased relative and gain some comfort from this.
