What is Mediumship?

“Mediumship” is becoming more commonly used and accepted, yet many people still don’t know what it means. In this post, I’ll share some insights about mediumship, starting with what a medium is.


What is a Medium?

A “medium” is someone who can communicate with the spirit world. Some mediums specialize in communicating with the spirits of those who have transitioned to the spirit plane (died), and can share messages with their living loved ones. Some mediums specialize in communicating with angels, spirit guides and other divine beings.


What is Mediumship?

Mediumship is the practice of communicating with the spirit world by a medium, and it is a practice that is still widely misunderstood in society. Before I studied and became a medium myself, I felt uncomfortable about mediumship because Hollywood often portrays mediums as being involved with something scary, evil or disturbing.

The truth is, mediumship can actually be very healing for the grieving when it is practiced with reverence and compassion as the sacred healing art that it really is (rather than exploited for entertainment purposes or fame).

I’ve found evidential mediumship to be the most profound types of mediumship because it includes the medium obtaining evidence from the spirit person that the medium would have no way of knowing, and sharing it with a living loved one who can validate the evidence. This evidence provides a sense of proof that the spirit person really is communicating, and who that spirit person truly is.


Who Can be a Medium?

Some people are born with mediumship abilities and know they have these abilities for most of their life. However, people who aren’t born knowing and using these abilities can still become a medium and practice mediumship with training and consistent practice. The more intuitive you are, the easier mediumship becomes.

I was not born knowing or practicing mediumship. I developed a strong sense of intuition throughout my business career, teaching other business women how to integrate their intuition in business. I also developed a strong connection with the spirit world as a spiritual healer and ordained minister communicating with angels and divine beings, but I wasn’t interested in communicating with people who had transitioned to the Other Side (a.k.a. the spirit world or heaven) until I experienced the unexpected deaths of my daughter and mother.


The Healing Power of Mediumship

I set out to learn everything I could about After Death Communication (or ADC) and how to connect with my loved ones on the Other Side. I was skeptical, but willing to shift my perspective about it if I could find enough proof.

Personally, I found a profound sense of healing and connection with my loved ones from the mediumship readings I received. Then I began studying mediumship and providing readings for others. I discovered how healing it was for others to receive evidence from their loved ones in spirit through me, as well as messages for them.

How to Practice Mediumship

If you’re interested in learning how to practice mediumship, first study with a teacher who is a knowledgeable medium that you resonate with. DO NOT use a Ouija board to try to connect with your loved ones on the Other Side. While mediumship is safe when practiced by a trained individual, a Ouija board is not necessary for spirit communication and can open the door to unpleasant places in the spirit world that you do not want to connect with. Just like there are people and places on earth that aren’t friendly, the same goes for the spirit world and it’s best to avoid it.

Learn and practice from a knowledgeable medium and teacher and discover the profound healing power of mediumship.
