Someone recently asked about becoming a medium since they have been getting the calling to step into their abilities. I feel that it could be helpful to others as well so here was my response:
Mediumship as you may or may not know is the ability to speak to those who have crossed over into the spirit realm or 4th dimension and beyond. It is a very beautiful ability that encapsulates many psychic abilities in one. You cannot be a medium without being psychic first. However, you can be psychic and not a medium. This is because mediumship calls for the use of empathy and all of the Clair- senses which I have a post on.
Being a medium can be very intense because spirit and spirit energy is all around us. Whenever delving into any spiritual practice, it is very important to remove fear. The reason why is that when we start to become realized beings (meaning we delve into the deeper meanings of life becoming spiritually aware of our surroundings and ourselves) we step into and acknowledge a very powerful creative ability. This ability automatically creates all that you think of be it out of love or fear. When you harbor fear, you will create and allow yourself to be susceptible to fear based situations. Therefore, fear should be released.
Meditation is key for developing any sort of spiritual awareness. Learning how to meditate is all about silencing the mind and being able to be in your inner stillness. This is the stillness and peace in your soul. Reconnect with your soul space and re-member all of the knowledge within. This is your foundation.
When meditating, it is advised you shield or create a sacred space to limit the intrusion of spirits and entities of the spirit realms. I have posts on that in the “Shielding and Home Cleansing”tab.
