Beyond the Stereotype: Why Mediumship is More than Talking to the Dead
Whenever someone first meets me and they find out, either by introduction or by conversation, that I’m medium, the first thing that comes to their mind is:
Which is funny, because mediumship, while I can see and hear those in Spirit, doesn’t mean all I do is talk to dead people. Sure, that’s part of it, but it’s certainly not the principle of my job or my ‘gift’. It’s like someone finding out I play guitar and assume I only know how to play one song - on every guitar I encounter.
The ability connect with Spirit is about one thing and one thing only: communication
Communication with myself and those in the Divine
Communication with myself and my Clients
Communication between my Clients and those in Spirit
And ultimately, communication between my Clients and those in the Divine
Mediumship is a recipe that simply requires a learning of the ingredients, but it’s like learning to make those fancy bakery cookies - with enough practice, a mentor or two, and a few basic cooking skills and tools that we all have, anyone can become skilled baker. Anyone can make a meal to knock the socks off whoever they serve it for.
That is, if they want to.
Mediumship is the act of channelling any Divine Light and Information down through yourself and extending out into the world around you.
It’s not magic or rocket science.
It’s not for an elite few.
Mediumship, is an act of receiving and an act of giving - at the same time.
An act of passing through yourself a gift that is made of Love, Compassion and Divine Light.
It’s a form of communicating and connecting, with yourself as the link, between the physical and the spiritual.
If you take a moment to think back into your life, I bet you can come up with at least one time when you gave something to someone else that you believe came from somewhere beyond or greater than yourself - something that took a great deal of courage or strength.
Perhaps it was a message
Perhaps it was distance healing
Perhaps it was a three card reading
Perhaps it was a spiritual smack down
Since we’re all part-physical, part-spiritual, we’re technically all part- medium - the intermediate agents between two places - with the ability to step fully or partially into either space at any time.
It can be connecting to Spirit Guides or Angels.
It can be gaining information by asking the Universe for answers through tarot or oracle cards.
It can be receiving guidance from an ‘unknown source’ in your dreams or waking life.
It can be, yes, connecting to those in Spirit who are your loved ones.
Can a medium communicate with the dead?
Yes, but it’s not necessary.
While this is my speciality (that and teaching other mediums), a medium is someone that can connect with ANY spirit in the Spiritual plane.
There are angel mediums, spirit guide mediums, plant spirit mediums, crystal spirit mediums, ancestor healing mediums, divine light mediums (energy healers) - which are all just different forms of the same thing.
Not passing messages along from loved ones and still call yourself a medium? Who cares.
That doesn’t mean you aren’t already practicing another form of mediumship in some way.
Mediumship can take more than one form - with verbal messages being just one type of conduiting down the communication.
Are you an intuitive professional providing readings for others?
You’re already a medium for Divine light and information. To take it one step further, start asking who’s showing you the information.
Are you a shamanic healer, reiki practitioner or energy professional?
You’re practicing a form of healing mediumship and can develop your abilities by lining up with your own and your client’s Guides and Ancestors.
Are you providing card readings for yourself and others, and tuning in while you ask your questions?
Great! You’re already comfortable with asking questions from Spirit. Begin finding out who you’re connecting with here.
Being a medium isn’t for an elite group of people - it’s for everyone.
We all communicate with Spirit on a daily basis - when interacting with our friends and family.
People are Spirit, too.
The first step to developing your mediumship abilities is to realize you’ve already been doing it for years - with those in Spirit - right here on Earth.
