Clairaudience/Clairvoyance is different and relies on a medium to have developed their ability to work at centre 5 (throat) and centre 6 (brow). It is not based on 'feelings', the communication comes direct from those in spirit, who are also able to identify who they are with factual evidence.
The medium is simply a channel for the communication and one of the hardest things to learn in development is to keep your brain out of it and just to 'give what you receive' without embellishment.
The late Ivy Northage (1909-2002) a trance medium and known for her excellent teaching of potential mediums said in her book, Mediumship Made Simple: (Ivy Northage, 1986, Mediumship Made Simple, Psychic Press Ltd.)
"The less of me, the more of spirit, the better medium I will become."
