Once you realize that you can learn to do mediumship & find out that it's real you get the sudden realization that every person on the planet is capable of doing it & the first thing you want to do is grab people by the shoulders & shake them in excitement! Of course most of society still think that it's a bit "out there" & so it doesn't take long for them to put a dampener on your excitement. I did always have this sense of knowing though that I was meant to help share my knowledge & awaken others along their journey as well so any chance I could get I would just tell people & talk about my experiences, some would listen with interest & others not so much, it wasn't long before I realized it was better to just help others who were going along a similar path to mine by joining groups online.
I have learned quickly that while there are believers, there will always be skeptics & cynics & so the first thing you need to realize is that everyone is entitled to their own beliefs & opinions & it's simply a matter of respecting each other plain & simple.
After practicing psychic readings, mediumship & giving spiritual guidance for quite a while I began to get noticed in another group I had been giving readings to people in, the next thing I knew I received a phone call & was asked if I would like to help out with the running of the group, I accepted & began to help run the group with a few other people, I thought it was a great opportunity in which I could help others with their own psychic development, this is where I met one of my closest friends Amanda, I actually had a very strong intuitive feeling that I had known her before & felt drawn to work with her, the both of us began to put up practice posts in the group to help, guide & teach others to learn how to do psychic & mediumship readings. I knew that part of my life purpose was to help others to become awakened & help them with their own spiritual paths & I was very content at that stage knowing I was finally fulfilling part of my life purpose.
Not long after this I met my friend Michael, I had been looking up information about energy work & came across his Youtube videos, I ended up joining his group & found other like minded people who were on the same journey as I. After nearly a year on & off Amanda & I began to realize it was just us running the group on our own, I had also began to feel in my heart that I needed to move on & my heart was telling me that my time was up there & so I told Amanda that I was leaving & had been thinking about whether to start up a new group, I had decided that I was not going to help run a group when the person who started it wasn't helping at all, I knew I wanted Amanda to come with me to do a new group together but I actually hesitated in asking because I wasn't sure if she would even want to leave, anyway I finally just asked her & told her what I was thinking, I asked if she wanted to join up with me to do a new group, to my surprise she agreed & explained she had also felt the same & that it was time for a change.
While we were discussing what we planned to do we ended up telling the other admin that we were leaving, the reaction was they were not happy at all & they said we were irreplacable & to let them know if we changed our minds, Amanda & I already knew that wasn't going to happen because we had been running the whole group by ourselves anyway & we thought well it's time to move on & that was that. After thinking about some ideas & talking about what we did & didn't want for the group we began to think up a name, we both wanted it to be similar yet different from the previous group & after trying to make up different wording STAR (Spiritual, teaching, awakening & readings) was born.
During this whole time while following my heart I was getting another strong sense that there was still more to this spiritual journey I was on, doing mediumship readings & finding out that everyone can in fact learn how to do it & being able to see spirits was so exciting but then I just couldn't shake the feeling that this wasn't all there is, that talking to spirits is just another drop in the ocean of things to explore spiritually, not to mention dimensionally & so I yet again followed my heart's yearnings to see where it would lead me & what else I was about to discover...
Beyond the veil
The first thing I did was begin to practice, I used the same technique that I used with my spirit guides when communicating with them, I would close my eyes, clear my mind & simply just wait, wait to see what came to me & whatever that was I would put it down. At this stage I had no idea whether the information I was receiving was from ego (me) or from spirit, this is one of the hardest things to learn when first beginning to practice readings because at first you think you are just making things up, but I persisted anyway, I thought what have I got to lose, I just have to try & see what happens, learning to trust is hard but that's just part of the journey, you discover things about yourself that you never thought you were capable of before.
I literally started out by giving one word, I had no idea how to even make readings come together as yet & so I would also use my cards as a guide to help me to make sense of it all. I would put down things that just didn't even make any sense to me but as the days & weeks went by something interesting happened which I discovered quite by accident, as I sat at my laptop doing yet another reading & I realized that I could actually see a scene rolling out before me, though I was still closing my eyes & clearing my mind to get my information, it was as I sat there putting it altogether that I could see the spirit talking to me! I rubbed my eyes & shook my head then I closed my eyes again & there he was as clear as day! An old man was doing different tasks, making movements & telling his story to me to pass along the information for his loved one's from beyond the veil! I was so excited & realized it was my clairvoyance kicking in, this was yet another step in the direction of opening up my natural abilities. I was even getting comments from others who were learning about how fast my progression was when opening up my natural abilities, people were asking me for help & I just couldn't explain it to them, I was even astounded myself!
My spirit guides were right there beside me, helping me along the way, I relied on them greatly, perhaps too much, but I was soon to learn there was yet another lesson ahead for me, something my spirit guides wanted to teach me that was important, something that really would make me take a step back again & rethink how I was doing things, something that was & still is to be the biggest lesson of all when working in this field as a psychic, medium & intuitive.
