Not a day goes by where I don’t receive at least one email or telephone call, challenging me to prove whether or not I am really a psychic medium.
Everyday, I encounter those who are skeptical, upset, or doubtful of what I do for a living. Many of these people are complete strangers I have never met, some of those people are extended relatives and some of those people are individuals who would genuinely like to connect with Spirit in a reading, but don’t want to be taken advantage of.
As a medium, I’m familiar with the fact that psychic mediums have a social stigma attached to what it is they do for a living.
Mediums are aware of the overarching public perception of who we are and what we do.
Here are just a few of the stigmas:
Making it up
Cold reading you
Researching you before a reading
Preying upon the vulnerable and weak
Preying upon the gullible
or doing something otherwise unsavory and unethical
Forget that most psychic mediums have a strong code of ethics that they practice under or the fact that many psychic mediums can provide you with stone-cold evidence that they couldn’t have known otherwise.
Before you go ahead and say that it’s the fault of the industry, as to why these stigmas are cast - I could say the same for any industry. Most mediums are well meaning individuals who are doing their best using their abilities to connect you with helpful guidance and your Loved Ones in Spirit. That’s the end of it.
This is why it's hard for many mediums to say everything they get.
(The fear of being judged).
Many mediums are afraid to say what they see because they don’t want to hurt your feelings or say something that could be considered ‘bad’.
If you go into a reading to find out if your wife is having an affair, and that’s what the medium sees, he or she may be nervous to tell you, because they may be afraid you won’t want to hear it, will get upset.
If you are a client, and you want your medium to be straight with you, just let your medium know you are open to hear anything that comes through - no matter what it is. Sometimes, that's all they need to hear to be sure you really are ready to hear it all.
If you are a medium, just say it.
You never know what is bad - sometimes, what you consider ‘bad’ is actually just the exact validation someone needed to hear to finally move on with their life.
The truth is always in everyone's best interests.
