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...
The most wonderful feeling you get when doing a mediumship reading is simply indescribable, I've been so blessed to be able to bring spirits through to their loved one's & sometimes the information they give you is completely amazing, I'll use this article to describe some of the awesome readings I have given to people.
When I communicate with spirits they give me information that not only relates to themselves but also relates to family members & hobbies etc or even things you've been doing lately to show you they have been around you, some things they pass on is very releant to what you are up to at the time.
A really fond reading I gave is one I will never forget, in the spirit world the love is simply beyond description & this particular spirit showed up to me before I even knew I was going to be doing a reading for his family that day, I woke up that morning feeling such a love that all I could do was walk around my house hugging all my family over & over again, I couldn't explain it, I just felt like a walking bubble full of the most purest love I had ever felt in my entire life! During the reading I said I was amazed at the amount of love I was feeling to pass on to his family & that it was the strongest I had felt so far when giving readings, later it turned out during the reading that this spirit also appears to his grandson because when I got the feedback his daughter told me that her son had been saying his grandfather was around him & kept saying to his mum "can you feel the love mum? Just feel the love & you know grandad is here".
To tell you about some of the things a spirit will show you, it can get completely random & make no sense whatsoever at times, this one spirit was clearly showing me birds flying above him & pooping on him from the sky, I had no idea what this meant & really hesitated passing this piece of information to the family because I thought it sounded a bit rude! I bravely explained to the family that I was doing the reading for that this spirit was showing me birds pooping on his head & I didn't know why! They laughed as they explained to me that as a family they would all go bird shooting & that this was a frequent occurence when they did this, needless to say I was astounded at that confirmation & now I will always put down what I'm shown because spirit is never wrong!
I have been priveleged to be shown most personal things, sad things & most wonderful things from spirits when they have come through but one time I will never forget is the time where a spirit decided to tell me off! This happened before I had learned to protect myself & also set boundaries with my spirit guides, it was all part of learning & now that I look back at the spirit who was wagging his finger at me I realize that he was part of that lesson I needed in order to understand more about the spirit world.
I think the main thing that I would want people to know when it comes to learning mediumship is that we are eternal! There will always be those people who don't believe & think that us psychics, mediums & intuitives are all making stuff up & that we are full of it. But for those of us that already know & are priveleged enough to be able to understand that this physical world is just temporary, we truly are so blessed! It's our job to give comfort to those still here on earth & to pass on any information we are given to help loved one's know that there family is still very much a part of their life! It's also our job to respect others belief systems no matter what because after all we know the truth & that is all that matters!
The one thing I love to say to people who have doubts or don't believe or understand what it is that we do is that, I will not even try to convince you that what I do is real but there is one thing I will say to you, the words believe & know have a huge difference. I don't just believe the afterlife exists, I KNOW it does ♥
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.
The story continues in Ego
That dreaded word that everyone thinks of that gives them the chills whenever doing a psychic or mediumship reading... EGO
Ugh I had no idea what the word ego even meant when I first started out practicing my psychic development & doing readings, but I was about to learn big time, I was on a roll & I thought gee I'm doing so good, all my readings were spot on & I just couldn't believe how fast my progression was with my development!
So what happened next... You guessed it lol I began to fail with all my readings, yep failed downright miserably & I just couldn't figure out why! I was like what is going on here? So with a little help from others & my guides I began to realize they were teaching me a very valuable lesson, the lesson of how the ego can take over & you can easily lose that link you have with the spirit world. The first thing I learned was to cleanse my chakras & write up a set of rules for my guides to follow when giving readings, without such rules I was being given information from multiple spirits who were trying to get their message across & so my readings were jumbled & got mixed up! By doing it this way I was able to keep track of which person I was doing the reading for & know clearly that I was listening to the right spirit. The second you forget to ask your spirit guides to follow your rules is the second you stuff up a reading again, even now if I forget to ask I STILL get it wrong or it won't make sense for the person who wants a reading & your spirit guides won't care, they will just shrug their shoulders & laugh at you! (well that's what mine do anyway!)
This is another way for the ego to take over, you begin to think oh I just know what to put because it all just begins to flow, well that might be all good & well but if your getting it flowing without asking your guides to ensure the information is for the right person then you could be wasting your time putting all this stuff down for someone who it will not make any sense to. This is where I highly recommend you have a relationship with your spirit guides if you haven't already, you see spirit guides are quite happy to let you fail downright miserably & allow you to get it wrong, this is what they want you to do anyway because if they don't allow you to get it wrong then you will never learn to tell the difference between the ego (your own mind) or spirit information.
Another thing you will come across in this field is many people allow their ego to rule them & so you will begin to see many of these people think they are all above the rest & they will start up a business page & begin to charge for readings. Big mistake! Never under any circumstance set up a business in this field unless you have learned well & truly about your ego! You will fail big time & have so much more to lose including your own reputation & credibility, spirit will ensure you learn such a hard lesson if you allow your ego to take control & act as if you are better than everybody else who hasn't developed their abilities. The truth is you & I are no better than anybody else in this field, just because you have spent the time to develop your natural abilities does not make you any more special at all, every single person has different abilities & is special & unique in their own way & every reader has their own qualities that make them just as great as anybody else, so just remember ego is something that will keep coming up as a challenge for you as you go along your journey!
Always remember to keep your ego in check! The very second you begin to think of yourself as being better than somebody else or have any thoughts whatsoever about showing off or trying to make dollars out of your gift or anything else that your ego may test you with is the very second you will begin to experience some very tough lessons from your spirit guides & the spirit world so be warned…
Though I was just at the beginning of developing a relationship with my spirit guides, I had no idea that I was already developing my natural psychic abilities without really doing so intentionally, but as time went by I began to get a real sense of urgency in regards to practicing mediumship, it was something I had yearned for it felt like all my life & it really was the only thing that made sense when taking the next step in my spiritual journey.
It was around this time that I began to search for mediumship circles that helped with psychic development & spiritual communication, I did have one barrier though & that was getting in the way of me trying to seek a group that did this which was close to the area that I lived. After asking my spirit guides if I was headed in the right direction & getting a confirmation that I was, I then asked them for help with what I was meant to do next & what I discovered after reading my emails was an invitation to a group online which specialised in psychic & mediumship development, well there was my next sign, my guides were leading the way & I happily followed the link & joined the group.
By this time most of the information I received from communicating with my spirit guides was through claircognizance which means- clear-knowing & refers to the ability to simply know something to be true even without supporting knowledge or logic or reason. You “just know.” So when I was welcomed into the group & nervous about participating the clear message I got from my guides was "dive right in", this was important to me because I knew my guides were referring to one of my angel cards from a deck called Messages from your angels by Doreen Virtue (the picture of the card is above) Here is the full description from the cards booklet:
Take action. You’re in touch with your truth in this situation, and you need to trust your gut and lovingly assert yourself.
Additional message: Dive right in! There’s no need for more research or time. You can trust your feelings on this one. I will guide you through the actions that are necessary considering the circumstances. Your main concern is to avoid procrastination at all costs. Break the situation down into small steps so that you don’t become overwhelmed. Then take those steps in regular intervals.
You already know what to do about this situation, and you have made up your mind to take action. I am here to validate that your decision is on the path of light. Although there may be some temporary hard work or emotional turmoil, this will soon be replaced by a lightness of spirit akin to gently floating on a summer breeze.
Sometimes you may feel too emotional or tired to take action. That is because your unsure of the correctness of your decisions. Usually unfounded guilt is the culprit that is draining your energy and happiness. This is when its very important to call upon your angels to shore up your faith. Notice how the doors open smoothly with each step you take. That is one more sign that your taking the best course of action.
As you can see the main words my guides gave me were "dive right in" I also got a vision of the card at the same time & so I knew they were telling me to just have a go at the practice posts on the group. I was excited & thought yep lets do it.
