When you browse over the Internet or check on metaphysical bookstores, you often come face to face with so many terms that revolve around spiritual advisory work. And while most people lump all these terms into one similar category, only very few of them actually use the metaphysical terms for themselves although they really do not know what these things mean. Psychic, empathy, intuitive, medium—all these are terms used in spiritual advisory. But do you know what these really mean? How does each one differ from the other?
Psychic works are just about anything involving sensitivities to supernatural or non-physical nature. Before you explore and understand what psychic works are, it is important that you have to understand that in some cases, these are not all about psychic works at all.
People gather and process information through the five senses: the sense of sight, hearing, taste, touch and smell. In psychic work, this is the process where you obtain all the information, but not using these methods. Instead, you use your extra-sensory method to gain insight to events, people or situations that are otherwise not available to the normal range of the human senses. One classic example is reading someone’s personality whom you haven’t met yet. When you do this, this would only negate all the possibilities of logically assessing them using your five senses.
Psychic works are often characterized by those psychics, in terms of their extra-sensory ways in which they obtain the insight. Some examples include clairvoyance (seeing without the physical eyes), clairsentience (feeling without the physical body itself), or clairaudience (hearing without the physical ears). All these generally sound confusing. But try to look at it this way:
The human physical sense is only a material or physical expression of the spiritual senses. Just like how electricity precedes how the oven toaster is turned on, so too does the spiritual or energetic sense precede the physical sense. Meaning to say, behind your physical eye, you have yourself the spiritual eye, behind your physical ears you have your spiritual ears, and so on. A good psychic can easily hone in, subtly working on these spiritual senses before they interpret all the information they gather.
A psychic can easily perceive all those subtleties in the same manner people normally perceive the road in front of them, or the conversation with their friends, or the tastes of fresh oranges. Everybody is generally blessed with a distinct ability to negotiate on the psychic or spiritual level. A psychic however, is just someone with a finer-tuned gift of perceiving incoming details that are normally overlooked.
