There are good things about being a medium.
And when I was just starting out on my journey of accepting my abilities, you would’ve never heard me say this. I originally thought being a medium was akin to being stricken with a terrible curse. But, I’ve since had time to think about it, and I've had a change of heart.
Mediumship is a gift, not a curse. But it’s only you who can decide to see it that way.
Are you questioning why anybody could want to be a medium at all?
Or simply searching for validation that you’ve chosen the right life path for you?
Deciding if pursuing your sensitive abilities is the right thing to you?
Opening up and accepting my own abilities to see and hear those in Spirit, which is something I’ve wrestled with for years, was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made in my life. And I wanted to take a moment and share with you why I think so.
Top 10 Benefits of Being a Medium
1. You Have an On-Call Support Team (Always)
When you open up your ability to communicate with Spirit, while at first it may be frightening or exhilarating, eventually the initial rollercoaster ride calms down and you find yourself surrounded by those in Spirit who don’t want to scare you, instead they actually want to be your friends.
As a professional medium these days, I find myself often giving problem solving answers, guidance and wisdom directly to my clients from their Loved Ones, Spirit Guides and Angels, who, generally have lots of amazingly heart-felt, quality information.
And, because I always have access to me, I also always have access to the realm of Spirit. This means I can receive Divine Guidance and support whenever I feel I need it. I can ask my own Guides, Angels and Loved Ones questions to receive specific answers and immediate solutions to help me out with whatever predicament I’m facing.
If you develop your abilities to work with Spirit in mediumship, this is open to you, too. It’s kind of like having friends always available to you on-call, a group of therapists available to you right away to cohesively and comprehensively explain everything. You are literally never alone - even if you are in the physical world - you aren’t alone in the Spiritual world. You always have friends in Spirit, and because they lack a physical body, they also lack all the associated physical world limitations like time, distance and travel costs of connecting. When you’re a medium, you always have someone to talk to and always have access to connect, if you feel up to it.
2. You Get to Witness the Power of Love (All the Time)
Those in Spirit, counter to what you might see on popular culture television shows, are mostly a loving, compassionate bunch of individuals who are looking out for you and always want the best for you. Of course, there’s a shadow side to the Spirit world, just as there is a shadow side in Earth, but you don’t have to work with those in the Darker realms, if you just turn away from it. You can choose who you work with and associate yourself with in Spirit in the Light, just as you can on Earth. Because of this, you can have access to connecting with loving, supportive Spirits all the time - this is the preference of pretty much all spirit communicators - all Light Spirits, all the time. And you can set it up this way, too.
As a medium, a central link, you become a conduit of transmission for a husband’s love to his wife, a mother’s love to her daughter, and a close friend’s love to her soulmate, on the Other Side. By being the conduit, the golden connecting link of Spirit, the love feelings and love energy that connect people across the realms, comes right through your body.
And, it’s pretty amazing. As a medium, not only do you get to feel your own Loved Ones, Guides and Angels love for you, but you get feel and transmit the love, compassion and strength of connection between two Spirits communicating through you across the realms. You get to deliver loving words and messages, but also, emotion, thoughts right through your state of being. So, you literally feel the love that people have for each other. It’s like being at the most beautiful, wedding ever, you want to cry, you want to hug someone, and you feel the love tingles all over your body. Feeling this sort of eternal unconditional love - on a near daily basis - changes your perspective on people, relationships and the nature of being a human.
Most of the time, after you get out of a mediumship session, you feel like you’re floating on an exhilarating whoosh of a love cloud, which can be hard to come down from. It’s the adrenaline, flood of positive emotions and feelings of meeting a soul mate, each time you connect with Spirit, and genuinely link your soul with the soul of another.
Feeling this level of eternal love on a daily basis, changes your entire life from how you interact with others to how you see yourself. Which brings me to the next point . . .
3. Your Spiritual Transformation SkyRockets (You Heal)
When those in Spirit come through you to deliver messages to others, they often deliver potent messages for you, too. Many times, hidden within a reading for another person is a secret, powerful message for you, too. Your Guides and Angels are sneaky like that and they’ll do what they can to enhance your ability to connect with Spirit, and often, that means, illuminate areas you need to examine for your own self healing, too.
Through working with Spirit, soulful realizations occur. It’s impossible for this not to happen, as talking to the deceased can change anyone. And usually, it changes you for the better. We learn more about love, about forgiveness and about what common themes hold you back in life, and how to release them. Why? Because dead people talk readily about these things. They talk about what they wished they had done, and what they hadn’t done and regret, and what they could do, if they could take it all back. And you, as the medium, are listening to all of this as you transmit the message about how to live well from a grandfather to grandson.
For this reason, mediums often have to take some time process their own readings. There’s a lot of life wisdom that comes through in any given session, that, you find yourself healing, understanding and releasing some of the things you’ve needed to release, too. Going into the deep emotions, thoughts and feelings which arise in any relationship between two people, asks you to look more deeply at your own relationships, thoughts and feelings - and question whether or not you’d like to keep them.
As a medium, you are given the opportunity to change, heal and explore areas of your life, which you may have never looked at otherwise.
4. You Release your Fears of Death (Pretty Fast)
Some days, I spend my days talking to more dead people on a intimate level than I do living people, which is pretty weird if you think about it, but it’s the nature of the work. And, the more you communicate with those in Spirit, the more you realize, just how alive, active and aware they are of life still on earth, even after death. They share with you information about how they stay involved in their own families and friends lives after their own passing and things that they do to help out their Loved Ones on Earth, now as a Spirit. Your definition of death changes, as those in Spirit are essentially still alive, just without a dense physical body.
They are funny, crass, bold and pretty bossy and straightforward sometimes, and it becomes really hard, not to begin to see those in Spirit like regular living people. And as soon as you do that, you become way less scared of death because you realize it’s not really as real as you thought. It’s an eye opening experience.
5. You Can Connect with your own deceased Loved Ones (Whenever you Feel Like)
The importance of this one varies from medium to medium, but it’s pretty important to me, having Loved Ones on the Other Side, to be able connect with them. . .without the use of another medium. As a medium, all you need is you to reunite with your Loved Ones. Mega bonus.
6. You Can Understand your Soul Purpose on a Deeper Level
Through connecting with those from the Divine Light, you can access guidance, insight and knowledge that is beyond and sometimes, a little wiser, than yourself. While it’s impossible to be able to know everything, when you communicate with those in Spirit, you can ask any question you want and anyone who wishes to communicate through you, can also ask any question they want. You can ask about your soul purpose, lessons in your journey and the greater connectedness of all things. Or, you can simply sit back and through your everyday connections with other Spirits (both those on Earth and those in Spirit), these meaningful ah-ha moments happen.
Plus, by the very nature of work as a medium, you’re intricately connected to the Life/Death/Life cycle, and this tie, from you to Life and you to Death, naturally, develops a greater sense of connection and unitedness between your Soul and all other souls. . . anytime you act as a conduit of communication. If you feel alone and isolated, become a medium, and you’ll realize how silly that was (I did).
7. You Can Manifest Things (Quickly)
As a spiritual communicator, you can work together with your Spirit Guides and Angels in a partnership and through teamwork, you with your Spiritual Support team can manifest things much more quickly in your life. With access to guidance from Spirit, you can stay on better track with your soul purpose and in alignment with who you are as a being, and you can also task things out to your Guides and Angels to assist you in accomplishing your goals. You can do double-duty the work to get you to the place you want to be, when you work together with Spirit.
You can make a to-do list for yourself and one for Spirit, each day, and the ‘work’ that needs to be done, can be doubled and thus, you can transform your own life and any situation, at much faster rate and with more physical and spiritual progress. With more awareness of the world of energy, emotion, thought, consciousness and Spirit, you’ll have more awareness of your own Spirit. . . and what is holding you back from manifesting your life to the fullest potential. Once you are aware of your own barriers and blocks, you can more easily work through them, in partnership, with your Spirit Guides and Angels.
8. You get to debunk some myths
By communicating with Spirit, you can begin to access the truth, the meaning and the depth in your life, by aligning with the highest truths of all - greater connectedness and love. Mediums, can be some of the most loving, honest and down to earth people that I know and many of us, are breaking stereotypes by what it means to be one.
I don’t ‘look’ like a medium. Do you?
Just by being you and living your life in full glory without fear of what others may think, you’re redefining what it is to be a medium and with your very nature, you’re debunking all types of myths of what a medium may or may not be. I love my gypsy skirts and all, but I definitely don’t cast spells or look into any kind of crystal ball. I get to break stereotypes everyday of what people think it is to be a medium.
9. You Can Help Others
Everything we described above, you can do for other people. You can connect your friends, family and others with their Loved Ones on the Other Side and their Guides and Angels for healing messages and guidance, and most importantly, release. Mediumship is an opportunity to assist others in their healing, transformation and self discovery journey. Connecting with someone with another that they love on the other side facilitates healing and growth, and you witness the changes that happen within others, through connecting with Spirit, first hand.
10. You are a Part of Many Sacred Moments
Some of the most emotional, transformation and powerful moments in my life have come through connecting with Spirit. And other people trust you to be a central part of their most sacred moments, with their loved ones in Spirit. It’s a gift, an honor and a great responsibility. I feel blessed each time another person, selects me, as the medium, the translator they wish to use for reuniting with a Loved One.
Each day I wake up, I remind myself that I get to be a conduit of love, between myself and another. And that is the best part of it all.
If you’re thinking about opening up your abilities of mediumship, these are just a few of the many benefits of being a medium. There are hundreds more, which come in moments throughout each day, week and year.
