Whether you are a long-term professional medium, or just starting to flex your muscles with clients and readings, there is always room to grow and practice.
Mediumship and the development of the Divine Link to Spirit is a life-long pursuit of love and truth.
And you can begin your journey expanding your abilities to connect with Spirit today with a few simple tips. Below, you will find my top 7 tips for improving your mediumship skills.
1. IMPROVE YOUR DIET
As a clear channel to Spirit, making sure that the channel housing is as pure as possible always improves a connection. Taking care of your physical body, the base-camp for your Spirit, will improve the ‘working conditions’ available to your spiritual body.
Better working conditions = happier personal Spirit = clearer, more loving messages.
Drink more water. Eat whole foods. Reduce toxins. And prior to your next session, check out this article on diet and mediumship.
2. ALWAYS PRACTICE WITH EMOTIONAL CLARITY
Connecting with Spirit in a swirling cloud of emotions, confusion and pain is not the best way to open up a clear channel. With your own emotional energy active in within your Spirit, receiving a clear emotional message from Spirit can be hard to do - especially through all that fog! If you are having an emotional crisis or rough day, it is always best to call off Spirit Communication, and prioritize the re-centering of your being.
Integrating these techniques into your daily practice and at the very least, your pre-channeling practice, can assist you in delivering a clear, more in-tune message. While you can learn these techniques individually, and I highly suggest you do, the speedy technique can be found in this article:
3. EXPERIMENT WITH ALL FORMS OF MEDIUMSHIP
All in all, there are a variety of different forms of mediumship, or variations thereof. If you are a Spiritual medium, which means you bring through Spirit for messages, begin to practice and try your hand in the art of Physical mediumship - including smoke billets, levitation, table tipping and so on. If you are a channel medium, meaning you're primarily deliver the messages of one spirit through speaking or writing, begin to practice connecting with other types of spirits - including Guides, Angels and Loved Ones.
Are you a sensitive who ‘picks up’ on the presence of a Spirit, but doesn’t necessary talk to them or hear what they have to say? Go out of your comfort zone and explore your clairaudient abilities.
Do you primarily deliver messages to clients from Loved Ones that they know? If so, why don’t you give automatic writing a try and connect with a Guide or any Light spirit who wants to communicate?
Exploring the different areas of mediumship is like visiting other countries - you’ll gain perspective, and new seasonings to incorporate into your go-to dishes when you return back home.
4. CREATE AN OPENING AND A CLOSING RITUAL FOR CONNECTING
As a medium, you are a portal for those in Spirit to move through the veil of connection between physical world and the realm of Spirit. In order to make sure you are connecting with the highest and most loving Spirits at any moment - rather than simply any who happens to stumble upon your portal - you want to set the intention to do so.
In addition to raising your energy to unite with Spirit through practices such deep breathing and opening chakras, you also want to develop an intention to state before each session and after each session. An intention or a prayer where prior to connecting you invite in love, truth and the Spirits in honor or the highest healing and upon closing, you state that the connection is closing and any spirits who wish to connect must wait until the next time you open the portal.
An example opening intention:
“Today, I invite in love, truth and the highest healing for all of those involved. I ask that only those operating in the highest Light of the Divine to step forward in our connection. With love and gratitude in advance and always.”
An example closing intention:
“My connection to those in Spirit and those on Earth united today is now complete. I ask that all cords are cut that bound us in past, present and future. With love and gratitude, now and always.”
With whatever intention you choose to set make sure that you are opening the connection and also ending the connection. This will help insure that your session begins when appropriate and ends when appropriate and that you are receiving only the most highest and loving connection possible. I invite you to create your own!
5. EXPAND YOUR ‘CLAIR' SENSES
There is one primary form in which you receive information from Spirit that you rely more heavily on that the other forms. If you are clairaudient, you may primarily rely on the words and messages you hear to translate and convey the meaning to your client, and pay little attention to any ‘random’ images that pop into your mind.
If you are clairvoyant, you may rely heavily on the images that you see to convey the messages of Spirit and pay less attention to receiving clairaudient information or through sensing.
For example if a Spirit ‘comes through’ and shows you his appearance to identify himself, branch out and ask him to show or tell you how he crossed over. Then, trust what you would receive, even if it is received through a method not within your safety zone. Dip your feet in the other waters of knowingness. Choose one of your less dominant ‘clairs’ and begin stretching those muscles!
6. MEET YOUR GATEKEEPER GUIDE
You have a Spirit who is assigned to you and their entire job is helping you keep up the red carpet ropes outside of the entrance to your very private club. This Spirit, known as a gatekeeper guide can assist you in protection from lower energy spirits, help you ‘hold the link’ for weaker energy spirits and help the Spirits who are coming through to deliver a message speak only one at a time.
You can tell your gatekeeper guide what your boundaries are, what type of Spirits you’d like to work with and begin developing your relationship with this guide today.
7. MEET WITH A COACH AND TAKE CLASSES
To learn the unique challenges and growth opportunities you have as a medium and within your life path, it is best to receive guidance one-on-one with personalized support. Working with other mediums to develop your ability is the absolute best way to achieve results as quickly and efficiently as possible.
I highly suggest you to reach out and find a coach who resonates with you. Many mediums, including myself, offer classes and mediumship development coaching to help you get up to speed as quickly as possible and within your comfort level.
Try out and experiment with each of these seven practices and you’ll begin to receive, clearer, more direct guidance for both yourself and your clients.
With love and see you soon,
