What is mediumship?

How does it work?

We are all of us Spirit as well as Mind and Body – indeed, everything that exists is energy and as science can tell us, energy cannot be destroyed but only transformed.

The world of Spirit is all around us, existing just beyond our normal range of perception. Think of radio frequencies, they are present all around us yet we cannot hear them until we tune in our radios.When a Medium opens themselves to the Spirit world they are, as it were, retuning their awareness from “medium wave” to “FM” enabling them to sense the Spirit world. Through training and regular meditative practices we are all capable of achieving this state.

Spirit communication will generally take the form of what is termed ‘Mental Mediumship’ – this will involve any or all of the following:

  • Clairvoyance – seeing images, words and pictures in the mind
  • Clairsentience – feeling the presence of someone – how they looked, how they acted etc., smells and sensations
  • Clairaudience – hearing words spoken or sounds within the mind

The most common form of communication is clairvoyance, with occasional bits of the other two ‘clairs’ occurring throughout.

Demonstrations of Mediumship are conducted in front of an audience, but can also take the form of a private sitting.

What is involved within a private sitting?

Every Medium will have their own unique way of working, however generally the sitting will take the following form. The session will generally begin with te Medium talking and at the same time opening themselves to the Spirit realm, the conversation will then become more and more influenced by this higher frequency. There will be no change to my voice at all,the conversation will just develop, naturally.

There can be, as appropriate, evidence from loved ones who have moved on to Spirit to inform the sitter that they are still very much alive and interested in the earthly lives.

As well as this, Spirit will often focus on issues around the sitter that may be holding them back, or impeding their spiritual development. Very often this will involve touching on past, present or the future. (It should be emphasised that this is not fortune-telling, but merely highlighting trends or patterns around you and taking them forward).

There is never anything negative about true contact with the spirit world, for the intention is to bring forward the love, support, healing and upliftment that are there for all of us in abundance. Ghosties and goulies and ‘things that go bump in the night’ I leave to the world of entertainment and sensationalism. If we have truly bridged that veil between this physical world and the world of Spirit, then a reading will leave you uplifted and inspired.
