There is an old saying that all mediums are psychic, but not all psychics are mediums.
I feel I need to clarify that point, as it is very confusing.
First of all, everyone is Psychic, and anyone can become a medium
means relating to the soul or mind
A psychic is able to read and interpret the energy of an incarnate spirit (the spirit of a living person/or animal)
Sometimes a Psychic will know things about a person’s past/present and future) and is able to convey that information whilst standing face to face, or at a distance.
The reason for this is that we are all made of energy, and we are all part of that universal energy, so once we accept this, there are no limits to how and who we can connect to.
Of course reading in to and analyzing someone’s life through reading there energy/aura can be considered intrusive, so I personally do not do it unless I have been specifically asked.
Very often in my readings I will be asked to have a look at a family member to see what they are up to which I will always refuse unless given express permission by that particular person.
For various reasons most of us tend not to develop our psychic ability and it lies dormant in us forever, occasionally showing itself in a dream state, or a particular feeling or premonition, that is just our inner spirit telling you it is still there and will work if needed.
There are many people that have psychic experiences but are afraid because (depending on our state of mind) the interpretation we can put on something can be quite negative and damning. But remember all interpretation is a matter of perspective, and there are two sides to every scenario.
Mediums are channels that work between the Spirit world and this physical.
My belief is simple, and that is when our physical body dies, our spirit/soul is released and moves to a higher plane of existence
There are some people who have difficulty with this and take some time to adjust. Some people talk about a soul being trapped between the two worlds.
I find this hard to believe as you are either here or there; there is no in-between.
You can of course be possibly depressed and vibrate at a lower frequency that would restrict you from progressing to that higher plane, and therefore need some guidance and healing, this can be done with the help of a medium and those loved ones in the spirit world working together.
Now back to the medium.
It is my belief that there is no such thing as a natural born medium. To become a medium in the truest sense of the word, and by this I mean to represent the spirit world wholly and responsibly with understanding and responsibility.
You have to have training
In all my years of teaching, I have found that someone’s first message that they give in a class under the guidance of an experienced medium is usually the best. This is because there is no expectation, and it is done under the guidance of the tutor)
Your mediumship itself never changes, it is your awareness understanding, and responsibility that improves, your passion your inner spirit becomes more recognisable by yourself, and when use your intent to raise your own vibration you will eventually have a seamless connection to those in the world of spirit.
There are two types of mediumship Physical and mental.
I myself at the stage of my life am concentrating on mental mediumship.
This means that everything I get is subjective (in the mind)
As mediums we mainly use four senses
There are many many more senses of course.
And as we develop we constantly become aware of many of the others.
I could write about this forever as it is my passion. But I don’t want to over face you with just my opinions.
Mediumship takes years to develop and I believe it can never be perfected, simply because each and every spirit you connect to has a different and unique personality and way of connecting, they are at different levels of progression (as are you) your guides and helpers are constantly change (according to your need at that time)
The spirit world use symbolisms and your guide will use your memory and experiences to purvey the messages to you.
Remember mediumship is the easiest thing in the world. It is the development of the medium that takes so long.
As the late great Gordon Higginson once said. We must spiritualize ourselves, it is the only way we will progress.
So the answer to your question is yes you can be a medium, you have that potential within you already. But it takes years of practice and dedication to be the best you can be.
The passion and feeling you get when you truly connect to the spirit world is reward enough
Everything else is a bonus, always strive to be the best you can be
