What Makes a Psychic Medium Successful?
These previous three years, rather that giving readings myself, I’ve focused my talents on training other psychic mediums to become professional mediums.
And I’ve noticed some core differences in the students who have succeeded and those who haven’t -
success as a medium has nothing to do with one person having more or less natural talent than another.
it has everything to do with mindset.
In my training programs, I have two parts: theory and applied practice.
To graduate, you have to complete both the theory and the part of class where we put what you’ve learned to the test - the practice.
It is in the applied practice stage where I have found many mediums flounder.
The floundering comes with doubt, and usually it's from a prevalent mindset in the mediumship community that if you aren’t immediately getting names, you must suck at being a medium. And this is totally untrue.
No matter how good your natural ability is, there is a learning curve for everyone in figuring out how to best bring out that innate inner ability out of yourself and in front of someone else.
But for some, when the first one or two readings don’t come out like something they’ve seen from another medium who has literally done thousands, a certain percentage of my students give up and decide . . . I suck.
If you wouldn’t compare yourself to Michael Jordan the first time you ever picked up a basketball . . .
why would you compare yourself to the best medium ever the first time you ever gave it a go at a reading?
It just doesn’t make sense to me.
It is the Mediums who:
- keep going after a bad reading
- seek out practice on their own
- push past their own feelings of inadequacy
. . . that really excel In Their Professional Practice
note here: I did not say the most naturally talented mediums, I said the most driven mediums.
It is not natural talent alone that makes a good medium -
What makes a successful medium is someone’s personal drive to keep at it when things get challenging.
You have to keep going to get good.
You have believe you can grow to get better.
That even when you have natural talent, there is a certain about of polishing off of the rough edges that needs to happen before your abilities really shine in a way that both yourself and others can truly appreciate.
