What is the Difference Between a Psychic and a Clairvoyant?

Oftentimes, people confuse psychics and clairvoyants and these two words get interchanged a lot. However, there is a number of differences between them. To evidently distinguish the two, we will have to discuss each topic first.


What is a Clairvoyant?


Clairvoyance is the capability to see things that are hidden. Oftentimes, this is used in remote viewing and is credited when locating objects or people that went missing. Clairvoyance has been used in several ways, though there is no scientific evidence how it works, but there are a lot of people who have accepted clairvoyance and have claimed to use it in a number of ways.


A woman named Evelyn experienced a form of clairvoyance called “clairaudience.” This means that she hears things instead of seeing them. Sometimes, she claims that she would hear words loud and clear, tipping her off that something was happening. This made Evelyn worry about herself. She went to the doctor and got evaluated for hearing and mental problems.


Evelyn would sometimes just hear one or two words that would tell her about something going on, like when her mother went on a cruise the other year, she woke up in the middle of the night because a voice inside her head said “flood.” Worried, she called and made sure her mom was alright. But the next day, Evelyn went to her mom’s house to feed his cats and found that a water pipe had erupted.


Other types of clairvoyance include claircognizance and clairsentience. Some clairvoyants believe that visions and dreams seen during meditation are forms of clairvoyance as well. Another clairvoyant, Arran, who practices shamanism, says his ability manifests themselves when finding lost objects. People call him when they’ve lost their car keys or when the cat disappeared. Arran says he just knows where the objects are and tells their owners where they can find them – and he is always right.


Both Evelyn and Arran have honed their abilities with practice and advise newbies to embrace their gift.


What is a Psychic?


The word psychic comes from the Greek word “psychikos” which means breath of life. A psychic person has the ability of ESP – Extra Sensory Perception, which is commonly referred to as the sixth sense. A psychic can be in touch with their own as well as anybody else’s soul. They can do a soul reading, enabling them to connect with someone’s soul through their energy field or aura. Psychics can also read information about a person’s past, present, and possible future.


Giving a consultation or psychic reading includes intuitively perceiving information about the person. Many people see psychics because they want to know about what the future has in store for them; this gift is called precognition.  Nevertheless, what precognition foretells may be changed by decisions we make including our own free will. Psychics are able to get a feel of the map ahead and what may happen in the future, though in the end, the choice of the path will depend on the person.


A psychic can access a person’s auric field and can determine some information about the person or sitter.  Some information can include the person’s feelings, thoughts, fears, and memories. Their insights, though, are limited to the material world and not communicating with spirits.


Main Difference Between Clairvoyants and Psychics


In reference to the information above, the main difference is that clairvoyants have the ability to see hidden or lost objects and psychics are able to collect some information from a person though his aura. Psychics can tell the person’s possible future through a gift called the Extra Sensory Perception.

In this day and age, getting a psychic reading does not have to be done in person. It is now possible to get a clairvoyant or psychic over the phone or through online means. Some even get a psychic reading through e-mail or Skype, making it more convenient for the sitter.
