Are You A Medium?
For Shamanic, Reiki and Energy Healers
As you may already know, my twin sister and I are both mediums.
We grew up together being able to see, feel and hear those in Spirit.
From childhood until now, our gifts of mediumship have manifested slightly differently though.
Sarah, my twin sister, uses her gifts in her practice as a shaman
Sarah, who practices a form of mediumship called Shamanism, connects with the Spirit world to deliver healing energy and information. As a Shamana, she works directly with those in Spirit to receive information and healing energy to assist her clients in healing.
In shamanism, mediumship, connecting with Spirit and acting as a conduit for Divine Light, helps and heals others from the perspective of the self, while my more traditional form of mediumship - message delivery, is mediumship assisting and healing others from the perspective of relationships.
being a shaman is being a conduit for light
Shamanism and all other forms of energy healing, including Reiki, are methods of channeling Divine Light and Energy through yourself to another person to deliver exact healing to the locations and areas that need to be addressed at any time.
Any act of transferring any aspect of the Divine - messages, Light, energy, whatever - is a form of mediumship. You are a medium between the Divine and another person.
Shamanism, Reiki and other like forms of Energy Healing are
For many, Reiki healing - whether you send or receive - is considered a gateway to spiritual opening and development. Many message mediums, I know personally, start and continue to practice Reiki Energy Healing.
If you’ve ever taken a Reiki class or received a Reiki treatment, the practitioner prepares for a session with a visualization meditation that included imagining light and healing symbols travel down from a Divine Light portal and above, through the crown chakra, down through the chest and out through the hands.
In fact, before I became trained as a message medium (the type you imagine when you think ‘medium’), I was trained as an energy medium - in Reiki and Shamanic Journeying.
In that training, I noticed lots of similarities between the way I now connect for a session and how many energy healers I know open the flow of healing Light for their sessions. So many similarities, in fact - the preparation actually about the same. Opening the flow of energy from the Divine is one process, and the way the energy moves through and exits your body is only a shift the way the energy is delivered.
The only difference between my current manifestation of message mediumship and the healing version of mediumship is:
where the Divine Light and Information we channel exits the body of the medium:
In Healing Mediumship, Divine Light is channeled through the crown and exits through the hands
In Message Mediumship, Divine Light is channeled through the crown and exits through the mouth
So, let’s move beyond the stereotype of what a medium has to be or do.
Mediumship is the act of giving and receiving Divine light
At the end of the day, this is all mediumship boils down to - acting as a conduit for Source. For Spirit. For Universal Intelligence. For Light.
There are many methods of receiving and modalities to delivering Source information
A medium is only a conduit, a transfer of energy between two realms, two individuals, or two groups of individuals. It’s the central link. The golden chain connector.
If you’re using your body, your intuition and your Spirit to heal others through the use of energy, Divine Light or Shamanistic journeying - you’re connecting.
