WHAT IS MEDIUMSHIP?
One of my students in the psychic development class I run asked me what exactly is mediumship?
As a professional psychic I find that many people often confuse it with other psychic abilities
Mediumship is the ability to communicate with spirit and provide evidence of life after death. It is not a way to look into your future.
To channel communication from 'the other side' mediums usually work closely with their spirit guides and it is this that distinguishes them from psychics - though some offer both services.
Some work by seeing spirit (clairvoyance) whilst others sense, see, and hear ( known as clairsentient clairvoyance and clairaudient)
They may also go into a trance like state and assume the voice, or facial gestures of the spirit making contact.
Most well-known mediums claim to have had this gift since childhood and that they have always been able to see 'spirit' around them.
But a few say it began after a traumatic incident in their lives i.e. an accident.
The famous 20th century Dutch medium Peter Hurkos credited with helping police solve 27 murders throughout Europe had a dramatic tale to tell of how he was suddenly able to communicate with spirit. In 1941 at the age of 30, he fell off a ladder in the Netherlands while painting a house and survived a four-story plunge. He hit his head on the ground below and while recovering he found he was hearing and seeing spirit. The accident also sparked in him an uncanny ability to "read" a person by being in close proximity or touching an object associated with that person. Many unsolved police cases were helped by his ability to tune into the spirit world and some grieving parents of missing children had reason to be grateful to him. But in 1956, he visited the United States under the sponsorship of a psychic research society and got caught up with the Hollywood set. Overnight,he became a celebrity, offering psychic readings to Hollywood stars and going onstage, and his wonderful gift was lost to those most in need.
Remember if you seek a spirit reading genuine mediums would never claim to be able to contact specific people. But they should be able to bring you messages from loved ones that you would immediately recognize
Also beware of the “doom and gloom” mediums. I’ve known someone be told some really unpleasant things. You should not leave a sitting feeling distressed, but rather uplifted and happy in the knowledge that your loved ones in spirit are at peace.
