When I first started delving into understanding my abilities and why it was that I couldn’t get a solid night’s sleep in nearly 10 years, I thought I had only two options:
- Being crazy
- Being a medium
Originally, I thought it more likely that I was crazy, than that I had a special gift that some people loved, and others are blessed with all over the world. At the time, I certainly didn’t consider my inability to sleep, or the paranoia that someone was always in my house, even when I was alone, a gift.
It was though - but it was me who had to choose to see it that way.
And today, we are answering a reader’s question about this very topic - it’s the same question I was asking myself over and over again, while I was up at 2 am scrolling through the internet looking for answers, all those years ago.
Hi I just read your blog on the tell tale signs you’re a medium and I think I might be and I'm so scared I think there was only 1 or 2 things on the list that didn't apply to me. How do I find out if I am?
I feel like if I tell my husband everything he is going to put me in a crazy house! He works night shift and I have to sleep with every light on in the house in order to try to go to sleep. He says I'm paranoid, but I've always been this way even as a child I'd have to sleep with a light on and with my sister.
I'm freaking out just a little and would be grateful for any advice.
If you are even asking the question, the answer is YES, you are a medium.
Now, the next questions you might be asking are:
Okay, well how do I learn how to manage it?
Okay, well how do I start using it?
Or my personal favorite,
Okay, well how can I get rid of it?
Sadly, you can’t get rid of it.
You can numb it, you can ignore it, you can avoid it and pretend it doesn’t exist. You can drink it away into a fuzzy place of non-feeling, sleeping pill it away into a temporary silence, or you can numb it out with noise from the television or radio.
But, you can accept it, begin to learn about it, and stop beating yourself up over it.
Family will often accept your abilities once you embrace them, learn about them, and come up with a way to intelligently explain them to the people you love.
And, if this is the first time you have ever stumbled upon my blog - you’re in luck!
There are actually hundreds of free articles available here, all designed to help you understand, accept and come to terms with your abilities. I wrote them all because I didn’t want one more person to go another day feeling alone and crazy. You aren’t crazy, you just have to learn about what is going on - and I’m here to help.
I would also suggest learning about the different types of mediumship, the different types of mediums, and the different ways psychic mediumship abilities can manifest.
Mediumship is not as creepy as television makes it out to be. Nor are Spirits as awful as all HBO series would have you believe. I wish I knew that before the media convinced me that I had reason to be scared (and I didn’t).
Being a medium is so much more than talking to the deceased, too.
And there are benefits to being a medium.
If you learn to manage it, accept it and understand it, it gets better.
It really does.
