For every reading and every person, it is possible to find the right psychic once you learn to understand the differences between the various types. So, what are the types of psychic readers out there and how to find the one you need?

What are the types of psychic readers?

Here are the various types of psychic readers you are likely to come across:

1. Clairs

Psychic readers are people with the gift of extrasensory perception, something more commonly known as the “sixth sense” or intuition. Deep inside, everyone has some degree of a psychic ability, but for true psychics it takes time and effort to hone and develop their talents. Among the types of psychic readers, the most commonly known are those who possess special abilities called “clairs.” These “clear senses” include clairvoyance, clairsentience, clairaudience, claircognizance, clairalience, and clairgustance.

  • Clairvoyance

Clairvoyance is the most known 0ability in the world of psychic readers. Probably when you just hear the word “psychic,” what you imagine is actually a clairvoyant. Clairvoyants have the ability to see beyond the physical realm by receiving various images in their mind’s eye. They can have psychic dreams, vivid visions about the past, present, or future, and can also perceive auras, the energy fields around people’s bodies.

  • Clairsentience

The types of psychic readers who possess the gift of clairsentience have a very heightened sense of empathy. They can feel and experience energies around them by using only their intuition. These energies can belong to people, animals, objects, and spirits. This ability is also associated with clairempathy, when the psychic can feel and read the emotions of others.

  • Clairaudience

Unlike clairvoyants, who receive various images and visions, psychics with the gift of clairaudience perceive the messages from other realms with intuitive hearing. Spirits, spirit guides, and angels might communicate with them by transmitting messages as songs or music, for example, something which only a psychic can hear.

  • Claircognizance

The types of psychic readers with the gift of claircognizance are rather rare. While others receive information about the past, present, and future through various senses, claircognizant psychics simply know it. Such people possess the ability of clear thinking, the ability to know the answers to people’s questions, future situations, where to find lost objects, and many more things. All of this happens simply by “knowing.”

  • Clairalience

Clairalience involves extrasensory perception through scents. It is something that happens to many people unconsciously, like when they sense a certain scent and it evokes a memory from their childhood. Others cannot smell the subtle scents available to those with clairalience, and more often than not, these scents are sent by the spiritual world and carry important messages or information.

  • Clairgustance

Psychics with the ability of clairgustance can experience various tastes without actually eating anything. Thus, these types of psychic readers receive messages from the spiritual realm as taste sensations, evoking a similar feeling to as if they were actually tasting things, but without placing them in the mouth.

2. Reading with divination tools

Some types of psychic readers use various tools when they are performing a reading for you to channel their intuition more effectively. Not all psychics do that, but many rely on such tools as Tarot cards, runes, crystal balls, tea leaves, water bowls, or other things. Let’s take a look at the most common ones.

  • Tarot cards

Tarot cards hold much information and many mysteries in them. When you are going to a psychic reader who uses Tarot cards for the session, prepare to ask questions and let the cards tell you a story revealing insights into your situation. Depending on what you want to ask the cards, there are various layouts the psychic reader can use to reveal your past, present, and future, and help you get a better grasp on your life at the moment. Tarot readings are always an insightful and exciting experience to have.

  • Crystal ball

If you saw psychics in movies, it was most likely in the context of them gazing into a crystal ball. In fact, many types of psychic readers use crystal balls in their sessions, because this tool helps them focus their intuitive prowess in one place. By gazing into the crystal ball, the reader can better concentrate and avoid any possible distractions, focusing on your energies and receiving messages pertaining to your situation.

  • Runes

Some types of psychic readers turn to rune stones for their sessions. These stones contain powerful messages that can help the psychic reveal hidden truths about your question or situation. Runes are known to have been used for divination for thousands of years, but they are still popular today because of the mysterious powers they hold. Psychics cast the runes and then use their intuitive senses to interpret their messages.

3. Psychic mediums

Some psychics also have the gift of mediumship. These are the readers who can communicate with the spirits in the afterlife and higher beings like spirit guides and angels and relay messages from the spirit world. They do this by raising their energy vibrations to match those of the spiritual beings and receiving their messages this way. Unlike psychic readers who intuitively read the energies of the client, psychic mediums read the energies of the spirits. So, if your goal is to communicate with a loved one who has passed away or if you are seeking advice from your guardian angels or spirit guides, a psychic medium is the right type of reader for you to reach out to.

Now that you know what different types of psychic readers are out there, it should be easier for you to choose the right one to find an answer to your question or help get insight into your situation. If you are not sure about what type of reading will be the best fit, do not hesitate to ask the psychic, as he or she will be open in guiding you into your first psychic reading.
