Mediumship training is all about learning how to communicate with others. It’s about trust, it’s about learning to listen and it’s about developing relationships. It’s about improving your social skills, understanding how you interact with the world and it’s about releasing your fears about what may or may not exist in the other side.
Even before you ever start delivering messages or settle in for a long stretches of meditations designed to connect, there are a few steps you can talk to be more successful on your training path to and in mediumship. As a new or long term medium, by just focusing on enhancing one or two of these ideas, you can dramatically improve your connection to Spirit, for yourself and others.
Aside from commitment to learning and development, here are the . . .
6 Steps to Better Mediumship
Step 1. Figure out How You Best Interact with Spirit
You might be able to see them, sense them, or hear them, but each person has some combination of these abilities, with one or two being strongest. Rather than starting your connection to Spirit by trying to use all of these abilities - start by focusing on honing one skill and then expanding from there. It’s like working out - you can’t walk into a gym and start lifting all the weights. By starting with just one or two, you are strengthening one muscle group and then moving onto the next.
Step 2. Learn to Link with your Own Spirits
Before becoming a foreign language translator, you’d first have to learn to communicate the language for yourself. And learning to connect with Spirit, is a lot like learning a foreign language. Begin your journey by learning to connect with your Spirit Guides, your Angels and your own Loved Ones in Spirit. By getting comfortable learning to ride a bicycle on just one or two ‘models’, you will get comfortable with the general techniques of riding a bike much faster, since there’s more stability and less changes when working with one or two Spirits, than when trying to work with 20 or more.
Over time, after steady practice and gaining comfortable on a few bikes, you’ll be able to safely and with confidence branch out and ride any bicycle you want - or, connect with any Spirit Guide, Angel or Loved One for yourself and others.
Step 3. Start Getting (and Trusting) Information from Spirit
The number #1 barrier to fully connecting with Spirit is to doubt and deny that you are. When you worry about whether or not you’re actually making it up, whether or not what you see and perceive is truth - the information has a hard time sinking in and being received by you. The first successful recipient of any message from Spirit, has to be you, especially when it comes through you.
Begin asking questions and attempting to get information from Spirit, either through pendulums, oracle cards, or asking questions of your Guides and Angels in meditation. Ask for favors from your Spirit team, and see what happens. As you start to develop a trusting relationship with Spirit, write down and record what you get, both for yourself and others, and you’ll begin to see a trend. Spirit, has no reason to lie to you, so they don’t. In fact, in mediumship there isn’t such as a thing as a wrong Spirit message, it’s only the possibility of an incorrect interpretation.
Step 4. Begin to Identify those in Spirit
When you answer a phone, you always ask who is speaking. So, when you begin to connect with Spirit, start asking who is talking to you for information on who they are. Even if the wisdom, guidance and information is really nice and great, you’ll want to know who it’s coming from. Spirits are individuals, and therefore, have individual characteristics, personalities and behavior traits. If you plan to work with Spirit time and time again, by knowing who is connecting with you at any one moment, you are providing yourself the opportunity to develop a relationship with specific individuals, rather than a blanket group.
When connecting two people for the first time - the first step is always introductions. How do you find out identity? Ask them questions about their identity. And wait for what you hear, sense, feel or pick up. They’ll be happy to tell you.
Step 5. Find your Purpose and your Spirit Tribe
Identifying your purpose and your path as a medium is as easy as coming up with a mission statement, a reason and a goal for why you wish to connect with others. By thinking about and writing out your purposes for being a medium, you’re helping yourself figure out where to focus, how to steer your ship and in what direction. You’re also guiding others in finding you, by letting the world know what you can offer.
Additionally, each medium has a group of individuals in Spirit that they are primarily drawn to working with. Mediumship isn’t all about connecting with the deceased. In fact, you can work with Spirit Guides, Guardian Angels, Deceased Loved Ones, Archangels, Ascended Masters, Elemental Spirits and more. Find out which of these groups interests you most and begin learning about, understanding and working with one of these groups in the Spirit world. As you begin to get comfortable navigating in one group within the Spiritual Realms, you can start to branch out and make new friends in the other areas. Just like above - learning to ride all the bicycles at once makes just a single task exponentially harder!
Step 6. Practice, Practice, Practice
Through practice when bringing through Spirit, you’ll gain trust, confidence and skill. The more you flex your ‘Spirit Muscles’, the bigger, more solidified and enhanced they become. New abilities that you didn’t know you had will begin to emerge and a new you will begin to transform. By connecting with Spirit, and welcoming those in Spirit into your life, you’re inviting in a self transformation, a shift in the way you connect with the world around you.
Mediumship is about communicating and connecting with others in Spirit. And just as the fine tuning of your social relationship and communication skills are ever improving and developing, so are your mediumship skills. The more you practice, the more you put yourself out there for opportunities to connect with Spirit, the better and more sure of yourself you’ll become.
By just focusing on improving in one or two areas, you’ll begin notice spiritual communication abilities - I promise.
