Can anyone be a Medium?

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

Psychic 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 life.

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 this 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

If you would like to know more, or take your Mediumship to the next level, why not come along to one of our regular weekly development classes

See you soon

The blinkered

It saddens me to see such bigoted and blinkered views about how mediumship should be demonstrated or practiced

Especially when it comes from those who should know better and claim to hold the key to the safe that stores the rule book for communicating with the spirit world

In actual fact the key, the safe and the book does not exist except for in the minds of those people.

So what is Mediumship?

Mediumship and all its derivatives is firstly about learning to understand your own spirit and understanding that you are a part of the bigger picture that contains both incarnate and discarnate spirits

Whether you focus on angels, guides, Buddha Christianity, Catholicism etc, it matters not. It is your journey and yours alone.

If you choose to share it you must expect differences of opinion, that is what makes the world go round, but you should stay true to yourself and accept the differences.

Gifted or insane

How can you convince someone who doesn’t believe in psychic activity that you are gifted as opposed to insane?

past life

There are so very many people who think or say, “Psychic or spiritual communication is unreal. I don’t believe it. You cannot make contact with someone who is dead. You cannot know my past, present or future. It’s just not possible”. They think your services are made up or you’re a crank, only out to make money from unsuspecting people.

Nothing could be further from the truth.

It may be easier or more comfortable for some people to shut off their senses and pretend psychic activity is not real.

In the words of Peter Jackson, a  Medium at The Spiritual Truth Centre, St Helens, UK,

“You can’t actually convince someone who doesn’t believe and who doesn’t want to believe. Either their belief will come, or it won’t. The only way to prove it is to try it out in practice.”

An Intro to Tarot Cards

An Intro to Tarot Cards


Tarot cards have a mixed reception across the world, some will describe them with a negative outlook

But this of course is not the case for everyone.  For many (used properly) the Tarot cards are a release from what has been a difficult period in the sitters life.  And a sign that the potential is there for it to get better.  For some however, the very mention of Tarot cards strikes fear in to their very heart.


The general reason for tarot having a bad name is that many religions would condemn anything that was esoteric or not in line with their beliefs. There are still many people that still condemn the cards as evil.  The Catholic Church allegedly call them the devils picture book

An overview of my Mediumship


Today I want to talk about the various aspects of my profession and break it down into categories which I hope you will not only find interesting but will answer some of the questions you may have about the Mediumship.

When I speak to people as a whole and mention that I am a Spiritual Medium, they are fascinated and mostly request an on the spot reading.

I always politely refuse and explain that a reading is a very special and personal thing that should not be given halfheartedly in the middle of a street or office and without time to prepare your own spirit.

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas


From the Spiritual Truth Centre

Being a spiritual person in 2014 or in any year is very difficult.

There are so many negative things happening around the world, and the Media is full of stories of disasters and tragedies.

Even the mad rush to buy last minute pressies and food before Christmas causes mayhem and frustration.  Queues 9 deep at the supermarket, Trolleys and shoppers going in to attack mode as soon as they enter the supermarket, and even the most spiritual people tend to develop the Angry Shopper Syndrome, and release a mouthful of language that could quite possibly be a prayer in Latin (but I doubt that is what it is) Continue reading »

My thoughts on Spiritualism


It is always interesting and enjoyable to speak at length to fellow mediums about their understanding of spiritualism.

It is also important that as spiritualists we are able to sit and debate, and put our point across constructively without malice or anger.  It would be wrong and quite arrogant of us to insist that our way is the only way, and would certainly stop us from growth within our own spirit


Although the core beliefs are the same, the understanding of the logistics and the mechanics vary considerably from medium to medium. Continue reading »

You can’t read for all of the people all of the time

Pete dem 5

Over the years of my development, I have built my relationship with my inner spirit, the spirit world, and those that come to me for readings, tutoring, demonstrations, or just for a cuppa.

I love what I do, and if there ever came a day where my passion went away, then I would say thank you and move on.

It never has, and never will be about the money, although we do live in a material world and have bills to pay.  That said it has to be a passion and not just a job.
