Many people refer to psychics as fortune tellers. Even some psychics use the term 'fortune telling' to describe what they do when providing psychic readings. I must admit that I have a little bit of a problem with this. Here is why. Fortune Telling In my mind, the terms 'fortune teller' and 'fortune telling' always conjure up images of 'fairground mystics' in darkened tents (usually filled with all kinds of weird and wonderful objects) 'predicting the future' at often ridiculous prices. These individuals often:
  • Use clever questioning to get information they can use to appear real.
  • Tell people exactly what they want to hear.
  • Predict the soon to be expected arrival of a 'tall, dark and handsome stranger' (or incredibly beautiful woman, as the case may be).
  • Predict impending incredibly good fortune.
  • Frighten the living daylights out of some poor, unsuspecting individual by talking about imminent doom and gloom (including terrible accidents and even unexpected deaths!).
These people are, as far as I am concerned, not only incredibly irresponsible (and more often than not also fakes), but also one of the main reason why so many people deny or laugh at the reality of psychic abilities. psychic readers Psychic Readers Genuine psychic readers rarely operate in this manner. First of all, we are normal, everyday-type people just like you who, as a rule, only dress up in outlandish costumes for Halloween or other fancy dress parties. While we may have divinatory tools like crystal balls or tarot cards at hand, we typically also live in and work from perfectly 'normal' homes and/or offices.

Most people wrongly assume that psychics and mediums must invariably be clairvoyants. In reality, clairvoyance is just one of many different psychic abilities, which also include clairaudience. Defining Clairaudience First coined sometime between 1860 and 1865, the term 'clairaudience' is a combination of the French word 'clair', meaning 'clear', and the word 'audience' (as in the state or act of hearing). Subsequently basically meaning 'clear hearing', it is defined by dictionaries as:
  • "the supposed ability to hear (voices or) sounds beyond the normal hearing range" (British Dictionary).
  • "the power (ability) to hear sounds believed to exist beyond ordinary capacity or experience's reach, as, for example, voices of the deceased" (
  • "the faculty or power to hear something that is not present to one's ear, but considered to have objective reality" (Merriam-Webster).
  • "the presumed faculty to perceive, as though by hearing, that which is inaudible" (Oxford Dictionaries).
Please note: These definitions have been paraphrased to avoid copyright infringements. clairaudience So what exactly does this mean? In essence, a clairaudient psychic or medium has the ability to 'hear' sounds that cannot be heard 'normally' by the human ear or recording equipment (including voices, music, tones and other noises; even the sounds of moving cars, trains or planes). Able to 'tune in' to different frequencies (almost like tuning into a radio station), they may perceive these sounds either in their head (through their so-called 'inner ear') or by actually hearing them as audible sounds (through their 'outer' ears).
