A Medium: Could You Become One?

Influence Mediumship Development Starting with Your Mind

Mediumship is not a fantastic gift that only a few special people can develop. Mediumship is a birthright that we all as humans possess in various forms and degrees. It is a meant to connect us with divinity. But our societal norms and upbringing, seldom allow for this expression to flow and develop naturally. Quite the opposite, mediumship and anything related with psychic skill development is systematically stomped out of a child by the age of seven. Have you ever seen a child have an imaginary friend? Did you have one? Children have the ability to see further spiritually because they are closer to the source of creation, they have passed through the veil much recently, they have less filters, they simply live, enjoy and observe. This begs for deeper debate and sharing of observations about why we see more children gifted with psychic skills as of late or those so called Indigo Children, but for the purposes of this post I will continue on.

I am not a child development expert or a psychologist, but my husband and I do have two children whom our family has openly raised in a nurturing spiritual environment allowing them to experience a wide variety of religious activity not restrictive to just Orisha practices, Palo Mayombe or Spiritism. Our children have Christian family members as well, and, are versed in Bible studies and currently working through learning about other main religions around the world. It is crucial for a child to understand that religious practices emerged out of the fundamental need to understand that which unites and moves us: Spirit.

What is Divinity but the Great Spirit? Call it what you will, no matter what religious inclination or magical practice you follow, there is a fundamental need to either embrace or deny this force. But the force of the Great Spirit (and I am using this term for Divinity as to try and remain neutral and respectful of anyone who reads this article) calls us to communicate. Observe those around your spiritual group, are they not yearning to hear and be heard by this magnificent Source?

How do we get there?

The first thing to do is, trust your organism and get in tune with it. Deep within you, there is a biological source of knowledge locked in your cells, your body was created to receive and interpret spiritual messages. You can influence the development of mediumship starting with your main neurological organ: The brain.

James Allen, in 1902 published, “As a Man Thinketh”. His work opens with an interesting statement:

“Mind is the Master power that moulds and makes,
And Man is Mind, and evermore he takes
The tool of Thought, and, shaping what he wills,
Brings forth a thousand joys, a thousand ills: —
He thinks in secret, and it comes to pass:
Environment is but his looking-glass.”

You can be what as you think! This is a simple and liberating concept. However simple this starting point may be, I find so many people not getting it. Once again, we struggle with societal conditioning which supports limitations, niches, conforming to parameters, denial of the spirit world and empowerment of traditional religious institutions versus self spiritual empowerment.

There are no limits to what you can do; there are degrees of accomplishment and manifestation of Mediumship.

What is a medium? A quick Wiki search yields the following:

“Mediumship is the claimed ability of a person (the medium) to experience what he/she or others believe is contact with spirits of the dead, angels, demons or other immaterial entities. The role of the medium is supposedly to facilitate communication with spirits who have messages to share with non-mediums. Mediums claim to be able to listen to, relay messages from, and relate conversations with spirit, to go into a trance and speak without knowledge of what is being said, to allow a spirit to control their body and speak through it, perhaps using a writing instrument (psychography or surreal automatic writing).”

However, it is time to revise this outdated definition of Mediumship. In my book, mediumship is the birthright of every human being. The medium unlocks his abilities by the power of thought. A medium is a conduit to spiritual beings of many realms (both internal and external) and categories depending on the medium’s development. A medium acts in tandem with a main spirit guide and most times has additional spiritual help from other spirits that conform his/her spiritual entourage. Mediums can manifest their skills at various levels physically, mentally, through trance. There are many expressions of mediumship from clairvoyance, clairaudience, clairsentience, clairscent, clairtangency, and clairgustance. Additional gifts are clairempathy and channeling.

We all have the ability to develop mediumship, and in the same way I said before that we are as we think, we should be careful not to allow desire to obscure innate skills. You may really want to be a physical medium, or a trance medium, but is your body supporting that reality or is it better suited for mental mediumship?

Yes, this is a “to be continued”…but then again mediumship takes time, and it is good to meditate on concepts and internalize them before moving on.

I will not keep you waiting long for the next part.

    The idea of indigo children brings up questions, why now, why not before? Maybe it’s just that we’re more open to spirituality again that we can again see children as beings who have a good connection because they have only recently reincarnated (like you said).

      I am not sure why now and not before, or could it be that perhaps before was a hushed thing or perhaps misunderstood?
