WHAT IS A MEDIUM?
Mediums are generally called psychic mediums because all mediums are psychic but not all psychics are mediums. A medium will be able to communicate with someone in spirit—including a coma patient, guides, saints, animals, and other non-
Mediumship development can and often does take a lifetime to develop. Every time I think I have come to an understanding and knowledge of mediumship, something changes and I’m in the process of learning more about the complexity of communicating with spirit. It takes time, commitment, practice, and it is a never-
Every medium is different and he or she will communicate with spirit in their own way and will have their own way of receiving information and interpreting those messages. There is a certain je ne sais quoi that needs to be developed when presenting and delivering information because a medium enters into personal territory with a client and often those in spirit will communicate very personal information.
Do your research to find a medium that you resonate and feel comfortable with and don’t be afraid to ask questions of the medium before you schedule an appointment. The medium you choose should have a sense of responsibility and integrity.
When I prepare for a reading with someone I spend about fifteen minutes opening myself up to receive communication and I take notes from what spirit tells me that gives me a starting point with my client. It is very important to remember that I, or any other medium, do not have any control over who comes through or what they have to say any more than you have control over who shows up at your front door or calls you on the phone. The client receives information they need to hear at the time and from whom. If the information is perceived as negative or painful, spirit is most likely bringing it up so you can face and deal with whatever issues you may have. I have never had anything “evil” come through—spirit is here to help you.
During the reading I may hear, see, smell, taste, and have physical sensations, and it is my job to relay what spirit is telling or showing me by interpreting the layered symbology of feelings and visions that are given to me. I connect emotionally with the person in spirit, and I see and experience them in my mind’s eye and with my emotions. Sometimes understanding and interpreting their messages can be confusing which makes the entire reading a process. Sometimes messages are strong and clear and sometimes they are weak and hard to understand. It depends on the energy of all involved.
WHAT IF NO ONE SHOWS UP?
It does occasionally happen. Trust that there is definitely a reason when spirit does not come through. I have learned to have complete trust in the judgment of spirit about these things and they know what they are doing. If it should happen, we will just reschedule for another time.
