The Mediumship Industry Is Changing and These Are The Trends
Evidence of a global shift has begun to come forward from old wave to something called new wave mediumship.
New wave mediumship defined simply: channeling spirit outside of the conventional box.
Mediumship is moving away from the old definitions of what it has previously meant to be and be labeled as a medium, such as:
- The mandatory offering of readings
- The obligation of talking to dead people for other people and having that be the only definition of a "real" medium
- And the expectation of working for the public for free, low-cost or no cost
Mediumship is moving away from these traditional exceptions and moving into a broader, more encompassing definition, that includes angel channeling, inspired writing, creative art and paintings, and so much more.
These are the signs of a new wave medium:
- The messages in your private sessions are starting to form into universal themes that can and will be valuable to larger audiences.
- You are guided to share your messages more publicly via speaking, writing, blogging and vblogging.
- You enjoy your private appointments less than you used to - meaning, you're being guided to move away from private message delivery.
- You are considering diversifying your income away from the traditional 'readings platform model' - meaning, this model has stopped working for you and you're now looking for other avenues of income.
The definition of medium is rapidly changing from "person who talks to the dead in private" to "person who channels a divine source of knowledge . . . in any format."
When did the new wave movement begin?
Transitions to new ways of being, often happen over a period of decades.
The validation of seeing their peers (fellow mediums) on television shows, called forward a vast array of mediums-in-hiding to embrace their gifts and start using them publicly. Because so many mediums began coming forward all at once then, this created a niching-effect, where mediums naturally began to diversify and distinguish themselves from each other. Hence, the moving away from traditional models thing I talked about.
Then, a huge industry boom and diversification occurred in 2015 - which I've already talked about in a post - and the new shift is now in full swing.
With more and more mediums jumping on board each day, there now is a plentitude of resources available online to keep this movement going for the foreseeable future. Go us!
Here are a few examples of new wave mediums:

Most new wave mediums are writers
Traditionally, if you're a medium, you've made most of your income off of your readings - the bread and butter of the psychic. Thought more and more are transitioning to larger platforms, such as writing and public speaking.
they're Transitioning out of the old labels
Most of the new mediums you see around aren't blatantly calling themselves mediums.
Their titles, rather are growing more unique and have a softer, more fluid feel:
intuitive counselor, spiritual coach, energy healer, angel channel
The word psychic medium creates an old-fashioned stigma. The woman who sits being a clothed table in the back of the street store and gives readings to whoever sits down at their table. She wears a headscarf, has a crystal ball, and will work with anyone who comes in off the street.
New wave mediums are much more selective than this old image leads many to believe.
They filter their clients to ensure the best interactions for everyone involved - including themselves.
They don't work with clients who disrespect, shame or joke about their services. They don't consider their services a form of entertainment. And they don't always offer public readings - no, not even for a price.
New wave mediums are much more careful about who they allow into their energy and when - as they know they need to be. Their energy, their emotional state and their health and wellbeing is so sensitive that it can become affected by anything or anyone that enters their energy field.
Many of the new wave mediums of today are transitioning out of 9 to 5 jobs and launching into their careers full time.
If you're reading this post and you consider yourself a psychic medium - no matter what public or professional term you may use - you're in.
Do what your Spirit Guides guide you to do and do not wait for someone to give you permission or tap you on the head with a magic wand.
You already know you have gifts and there is no time better than now to go forth.
With a community supporting you - both directly and indirectly - it's fertile time to dive in.
