Mediums and Clairvoyants
Mediums and Clairvoyants are people who have psychic gifts and abilites to gain knowledge in ways that shouldn't be possible. The main difference between the two terms is that Mediums communicate with the Spirits of the dead, while the psychic power of Clairvoyants give them the ability to sense people, objects or events that are distant in space or time. For instance, a Clairvoyant might be able to tell you that a room is haunted, while a medium is more likely to see a persons aura.
Mediums and Clairvoyants can channel their physics senses differently, but there are many similarities between them. For instance, they both may go into a trance in order to use their gifts more effectively and both are sensative to psychic influences or "vibrations" in a general sense. Therefore, as their abilites overlap, the people who visit them do so for similar reasons.

Board marked with letters and numbers. Spirit guides the movement of a pointer to spell out information.
I do not endorse using these boards, as unless you are 100% sure of what you are doing you could invite all sorts of negative entities into your private living space to wreak havoc, not only on your possessions, but also on your mind and body.
