Definitions of Energy Reading, Psychic, Clairvoyant, Medium

Definitions of Psychic Stuff

Everyone is psychic and can tune into and read energy.  Some people have the ability to use these skills naturally, while others develop their skills through experience, meditation and courses of study.


Psychic Reader Regina Kaiser

Hello, my name is Regina Kaiser. 

I wrote this page of definitions to provide clarity to an area that is often confusing.  Imagine what it was like in 2000 when I  first started teaching and offering readings.  The internet was just getting started.

People would ask me what type of readings I offer, and how do they know what type is best for them.  What I learned is people just like to know. Then they can clearly tell others what they received.  By understanding the type of reading it becomes more grounded.   

I have chosen not to make predictions because I believe you have access to your own highest information. I read so you can understand the messages. 

Trust your intuition.  Listen to your heart.

Light, laughter and Love, Regina


Common Definitions

The words clairvoyant, psychic, intuitive, medium, and energy reader are generally used to refer to different kinds of paranormal extra-sensory experiences.

Types of Readers

Sees things beyond the normal senses using their third eye – clairvoyance (see below)


Energy Reader
Is a psychic with a trained ability to use their extra-sensory perception through clairvoyance, clairsentience, clairaudience and claircogizance.


Communicates with the soul of the deceased, relaying messages to those who are non-mediums.   A Medium may allow a soul/spirit to enter/control their body and speak through it, sometimes with automatic writing or drawing; also know as channeling.


Is the name give to a medium who receives messages or inspiration from extra-dimensional beings or a ‘teaching spirit’.


Is sensitive to anything beyond the natural range of perception.  Psychics include clairvoyants, mediums and energy readers.


Card Reader – Tarot and Oracle Cards
Use sets of  cards used to gain insights to the past, present and future.  Cartomancy is fortune telling or divination using a deck of cards.


Type of Intuition or Reading Ability

Is the ability to “feel/touch clearly” – a person uses extra-sensory perception to receive information through touch and feeling.
Clairsentience differs from clairvoyance in that this kind of ability does not have a vivid picture in the mind. Instead a clear ‘feeling’ is formed and often felt in the lower abdomen. The second chakra corresponds with clairsentience – clear feeling, gut feeling & connecting. Additionally, empathic individuals, or empaths are highly sensitive souls with strong clairsentience.


Is the ability to “hear clearly” the thoughts, voices or messages of spirits.  A person with evolved clairaudience hears what others may not hear. The fifth chakra corresponds with clairaudience– listening, hearing and being heard.


Is the ability to “see clearly” information about an object, person, location or physical event that is not physically present. Clairvoyance means ‘clear seeing’ – but not with the human eye – rather this sight occurs through the sixth chakra. Information may appear like a movie or photograph in the mind of the reader. The sixth chakra, also known as the third eye corresponds with clairvoyance – seeing clearly and self-reflection.


Is the ability to ‘know clearly” – to know something without a physical or logical explanation. The seventh chakra corresponds with claircognizance – knowingness, immortality & understanding.


Is a highly sensitive soul that ‘feels or reads’ other peoples energy through their physical, emotional, mental and spiritual bodies.  They can also sense energy from the paranormal.
