Often empaths are mediums. A medium uses their intuitive or psychic abilities to see into the past, present, and future of an individual’s life by tuning into the spirit energy surrounding that person. Mediums are reliant upon the presence of a spiritual energy outside of themselves to gain accurate information about the person they are reading. In the work of mediumship, a connection is made with the dead to deliver messages to those who are alive. Information is received directly from the dead, angels, and spirit guides.
