12 Signs You’re a Psychic Medium

12 signs you're a psychic medium

Psychic Medium Signs

Do you ever wonder if you might be a psychic medium, but aren’t sure?

Or do you wonder that your extrasensory gifts are just your imagination (or that you’re crazy)?

Although many people are open to non-traditional and “new age” stuff nowadays, it’s still a challenge to feel different.

Do you have visions? Dreams that come true? See shadows?

If you do, it’s OK to admit it here. 

What if I told you that psychic mediums experience the same things? That you’re NOT crazy?

What is a Psychic Medium?

Mediumship is a step up on the energetic scale from psychic ability.

It’s the ability to sense and communicate with spirits — which have an energetic frequency that vibrates very fast (because those in spirit no longer have a dense physical body to deal with).

You may have an extra serving of psychic ability, which could explain why you hear voices, have visions or have premonitory dreams.

Everyone has psychic abilities to some extent, and we can all choose to live by our intuition if we want to… and we are all capable of spirit communication.

Here’s a list of common traits and experiences psychic mediums have. See which ones you have experienced:

Signs You’re a Psychic Medium

1. You’ve always felt different

When you were young, did you feel like you didn’t fit in? Do you feel that way now?

It may seem like you can’t quite put a finger on it, but you’ve always known that there was something different about you. For example, maybe you:

  • Long for deeper connections than your friends
  • Feel like an old soul
  • Had trouble relating to other kids in school

2. You Saw Spirits After Age Three

Were some of your best friends imaginary? Or did you see angels as a kid?

Babies and toddlers are still very connected to the spiritual realm, so it’s normal for them to see spirits, angels, and even departed loved ones that they never met!

However, after about the age of three, if you aren’t encouraged to nourish your connection with your intuitive gifts, they get weaker.

You see, spirits vibrate at a fast frequency, so if you could sense that energy as a child, teenager or adult, it’s a good indicator you are a psychic medium.

3. You’ve Felt the Presence of Spirits

  • You sense that there could be a spirit around, but you’re not sure. Maybe you feel like someone is watching you, but it’s just you and Fido hanging out watching Netflix. You may also feel a sudden wave of emotion, such as sadness or anxiety, associated with the presence. (clairsentience)
  • You’ve sensed the energy of a friend’s loved one after they passed away. You may have also felt that they had a “message” they wanted you to pass on to their loved one.
  • You’ve felt the presence of a deceased loved one. For example, when my aunt passed away, I knew she was around because I could sense her energy. Plus, I was receiving a lot of “signs”, like when someone called my house randomly asking for Janet (her name)!

If you have experienced any of these, along with another sign on this list, it’s a neon-green indicator that you may be a psychic medium!

4. You’ve Had a Clairvoyant Experience

Clairvoyance is the ability to connect with your intuition via images and visions.

So, if you’ve ever had a psychic vision or had images flash in your mind’s eye, it’s a sign that you are a psychic medium with clairvoyant ability! 

Seeing things out of the corner of your eye, such as orbs, sparkles, shadows, or flashing lights (“spirit lights”), is another indicator that you have mediumship abilities.

5. You are Sensitive to Energy

You walk into a room or drive by a building you’ve never been in and it’s like *boom* —  your body tingles, you get a shiver, or the energy seems to palpate with heat, cold, or heaviness. You’ll find yourself saying things like, “That place has a great vibe,” or “That place feels awful!

If you’re sensitive, you may also be able to feel the emotions of others (this is known as being an empath), or be good at ‘reading’ people.

These are all great surefire signs that clairsentience is one of your psychic gifts… and that you may be able to communicate with spirits through sensing and feeling.

6. You’ve Had a Clairaudient Experience

Clairaudience is the ability to connect with your intuition through the auditory channel (psychic hearing).

For example, you might:

  • Hear someone saying your name when you’re alone
  • Have felt guided by your inner wisdom (that “little voice” inside)
  • Have heard high-pitched sounds, buzzing, or “popping” in your ear (without a medical reason)
  • Hear music when no one is around

7. You’re Hypersensitive

Loud or crowded places, bright lights, loud noise, or strong smells… no thank you! These triggers make you feel as if you could crawl out of your skin.

Many people with clairsentient ability are sensitive to physical stimuli because they can FEEL energy and are sensitive to it.

If you crave calm and quiet, and get overwhelmed or irritated by loud noise, etc. you may be clairsentient and be able to sense spirits!

8. You Have Frequent or Vivid Dreams

You may even:

  • Recall experiences of astral travel
  • Have vivid dreams
  • Feel as though a spirit has visited you in a dream
  • Woken up with the answer to a problem or an inspired idea
  • Saw a future event occur in a dream

(Here’s a post about scary psychic dreams and why we have them sometimes.)

9. You Understand Animals

You “get” them and feel like you can communicate with them. Your friends call you the cat whisperer.

10. You Have Gut Feelings

Claircognizance is the ability to connect with your intuition through gut feelings.

For example, it doesn’t matter what someone looks or acts like; there’s no fooling you! You get people’s vibes and know things about them without them having to say a word!

You have a strong sense of knowing, and your gut feelings are spot-on!

11. You’ve Had a Telekinetic Experience

Have electronics ever acted up when you’re around?

  • Alarms have gone off for no reason
  • The radio or TV turns on or off
  • Your cell phone battery drains fast
  • You have to store extra light bulbs because yours burn out so often.

This is because your vibration is high, which is another sign that you are a psychic medium. (High vibrations can affect electronics.)

12. You Give Amazing Advice

Do people feel better after talking to you because you soothe them with words of wisdom? Or tell you that should have your own advice column?

What’s this all about?

Oh, you’re probably channeling divine wisdom from your Spirit Guides and are not even aware of it!

If several of the signs on this list resonate with you, there’s a good chance that you’re a psychic medium!

Tip: If you resonate with this sign, you would be great at giving readings because you will be able to pass on spirit messages with ease!

On the flip side, being a psychic medium doesn’t mean you will:

  • See dead people everywhere. You’re not Haley Joel Osment in The Sixth Sense, so don’t worry.
  • Have to develop your gifts. If you’re not ready to use your mediumship abilities now (or ever), that’s okay! (If you fall into this camp, read Wait, I Don’t Want to Be a Psychic).
