How To Be Friends With A Psychic Medium
My name is Amanda Linette Meder and I'm a life-long psychic medium.
I also coach and train other mediums to embrace, accept and understand their gifts.
I've been aware of my gifts since I was a little girl and these gifts, have often come in the way of friendships, careers, and closeness with others.
Because having gifts and talking about these gifts has been considered a social no-no- for so long, you may not be so surprised to learn that many psychic mediums live their lives without an awful lot of close friends.
It doesn't have to be this way, especially since so many people want psychic friends!
And since I counsel fellow mediums and live life as a psychic myself, I thought I'd share with you some of the things you can do to be more supportive and to develop better a relationship the psychic of your life.
To become friends with a psychic medium, here's what you need to do:
practice listening without making faces
Just because you aren't saying it, doesn't mean we can't see it. Remember that psychic mediums are intuitive readers for a living, and if a medium friend of yours feels comfortable enough to tell you one of their spirit stories - it means they trust you. Do your best to honor it without looking too horrified!
Ask about what they do for a living or about their experiences
Lots of people are spooked by the girl or the guy who talks to the dead. And honestly, I'm surprised by this because we see ghosts, that doesn't mean we also eat people. Alas though - this spook factor means something more serious. Many people in the medium's own circle have never once asked them about their life. Show compassion, show you care - ask about the life of the medium in your life.
resist the urge to immediately de-bunk
Mediums may be sensitive to things you aren't, but that doesn't mean they're idiots.
Rest assured if the medium in your life is a professional, she's crossed all her i's and dotted all her t's and no - it's probably not just a squirrel - she's thought of that already, and ruled it out, besides.
Listen respectfully and try considering an alternate perspective before shooting him (or her) down.
These are just a few simple ways to be nicer and more compassionate to the spiritual ladies and gents in your life, and let's be honest, you may as well - because you never do quite know when you're going to need their help.
And finally, if you are a psychic yourself, it's important that you, too, learn how to be a good psychic friend. We can't ask others what we need for ourselves unless we are conscious of the way we interact in the lives of others, as well.
So, I encourage you to check out the article How to Be a Good Psychic Friend by Danielle MacKinnon, for a little flip of the coin on that perspective.
Psychics are the most giving and loving of all people, primarily because they feel and sense so much, it gives them the drive to help others. So if you do find yourself with a psychic friend, you're a lucky one indeed. Make sure to remind them how grateful you are for the light they spread and the work they do each and every day.
