Synonyms of "Mental" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between mental and spiritual and psychic ?
A: mental: things in your mind, thoughts. e.g: mental maths (doing sums in your head) mental illness (psychological illness) in the UK people might say ‘are you mental?’ as in ‘are you crazy/messed up?’ but it’s not a nice thing to say
spiritual: things you can’t see but might be able to feel. e.g: Buddhism is a spiritual religion. Seeing auras is considered a spiritual gift. Being present and practicing mindfulness is a spiritual practice.
psychic: usually knowing/feeling/‘seeing’ things before they happen, e.g having strong intuition is considered a psychic ability. people usually think of people who can see the future when they hear the word psychic.
Biggest difference between being spiritual and being psychic is that you can be spiritual and have no abilities, just believe in love and presence and feeling instead of thinking. Being psychic means you have abilities. But a lot of people think that no one is actually psychic.
