Why Mediums Need to Illuminate "The Bad" For Their Clients - To Start Healing For The Good
It's natural not to want to keep going when you see something questionable in a reading.
When it’s not aligned with rainbows, unicorns and beautiful love and light right away, the tendency is to stop connecting and drop the Link with Spirit. In a reading, when heavy stuff comes up, curious images begin to emerge and mediums, because they’re human, begin to question if this is the message they should be sharing.
In a reading with Spirit, you go deep down into the heart of an issue.
You dig into the well of another, and you dig and dig into the message, into the well until you hit rock bottom. There, at the rock, most people stop.
They don’t keep digging, but rather, they try to get another image, try to ask the Spirit to say something else, or discontinue the reading altogether. They panic.
When you get to the rock bottom, you’ve gotten yourself real close to the treasure. For at the entrance of any tomb filled with jewels, is often, a brick wall guarding it. You’re just about to get to the gold and to the heart of the reason why this person sought the guidance and wisdom of Spirit in the first place. The dark, scary, deep stuff, that which we are generally not paying attention to and trying the hardest avoid - is the exact stuff that Spirit comes to a session to illuminate. They come to shine the Light on things hidden.
Moreover, within each of us, is a dark well.
People don’t see a medium to continue to play a charade. Whether they like it or not, readings can get more in-depth than you might expect.
Thankfully, those in Spirit delight in shining a Light on the Truth, but sometimes you have to go through a tunnel to get there. Spirit’s messages usually with the truth. Including the hard truths, we don’t always want to swallow.
The purpose of a reading is to illuminate which we don’t see or don't want to look at so that we can heal it, fix it, solve it, notice it or do something about it.
The Lousy Stuff Is Always The Healing Stuff
Imagine in a reading, you see an image that confuses you, looks scary to you or looks troubling, such as a husband having an affair.
Share what you see, compassionately, gently, but honestly. Also, keep sharing until the wife tells you to stop, which she probably won’t, because this may be what is needed to help her heal and to finally, once and for all, validate her feelings and her intuitions. While you may be thinking, Oh my God, I hope she doesn't smack me, she may be thinking, Thank God, someone else sees it too. What a relief.
Sometimes scary is a necessary truth for another person that they need to see to change something, to heal. So as a medium, your job is to dig through the tunnel until you get to the Light. Until you get to the truth in the lesson or the guidance that comes from the Light at the other end.
Because often, we appreciate the treasure uncovered only after we’ve trenched through a swamp, dug into a ditch and hiked through a valley.
Yes, a bright Light of truth is usually only welcomed after a struggle.
And not everyone wishes to dig alone. Not everyone wishes to swim alone. So as a medium, you take the hand of another, and you dig together, with your client. Your digging encourages your partner to keep digging. As you dig together, trust develops. Companionship emerges, and suddenly, it’s no longer a valley with just one person in it, it’s a valley with a pair of friends, acknowledging how difficult this is - together.
When you step out of a reading or abandon an image right when you start to see the depth of the valley, you’ve abandoned someone half-way through the swim.
So with that, no one makes it to the treasure, the Light at the end of the tunnel.
Truth is left un-illuminated.
Readings can be a dig for gold
Ending at a rock, or changing directions in the middle, and you stop both yourself and your client from reaching the shining light of realization.
So even if you are afraid to say what needs to be said, do so kindly and please don’t stop. You’ve got friends in the valley, who are trusting you to stay right by their side as you dig together. Keep going.
