Hi

Again, it's from the "acknowledgements" at the beginning of the book.

The author writes: And a special thank you to my dear friend, fellow psychic, student, and teacher, Julia Cameron, for her vision-and insistence-on my bringing The Psychic Pathway into the world. It was her psychic knowing that first noticed this book inside me 7 years ago, and in her artist's way, she helped me lead it safely into the world.

The psychic pathway led Julia to create The Artist's Way. The Artist's Way, in turn, led me to create The Psychic Pathway.

--- Does "artist's way" mean the same as "artistic way". That woman wrote the book The Artist's Way, however I'm not sure how to understand "artist's way". It's a bit strange to me.

By the way, do you think that the title: The Psychic Pathway mean the same as The Medium Pathway or The Pathway of the Medium. Is the meaning the same in your view?

No.

a psychic - a person with one or more of a wide range of strange powers, eg the ability to see

the future

a medium - a person who can communicate with the spirits of the dead

The word "her" pushes us toward the assumption that she is an artist.
Many people can do things in an artistic way.

Of course, it's also a play on the book title. (personal, enigmatic)

Hi

According to this dictionary, I think "psychic" and "medium" mean the same thing:

http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/psychic (definition number 6)

Another definition from Longman dictionary: psychic - someone who has mysterious powers, especially the ability to receive messages from dead people or to know what will happen in the future.

Thanks
By the way, how do you understand the title: The Psychic Pathway.

Does it mean this is the pathway along which the psychic goes? In other words: The Pathway (The Way) of the Psychic?

cheers

Hi,

According to this dictionary, I think "psychic" and "medium" mean the same thing:

I like my definition better.Emotion: wink

Think of it this way. All mediums are psychics. But not all psychics are mediums.

By the way, how do you understand the title: The Psychic Pathway.



Does it mean this is the pathway along which the psychic goes? In other words: The Pathway (The Way) of the Psychic? I don't know. I'd have to read the book.

Thanks for your help!!!

That's my understanding.

I think when most people "choose" the term "psychic" to describe a person, they're thinking in terms of prescience. They sometimes attribute psychic abilities to people who don't claim them, or go about practicing them.
Whereas mediums are usually "in the business."

Just like the difference between "artist" and "artistic," we usually use the adjective to describe someone who(m) we feel has psychic abilities, while we use the noun to describe the "practicing" psychic: she is a psychic vs. she is psychic.
