(My actual cat, Hugo)
So I have started a 10 week Psychic Mediumship Development course with the College of Psychic Studies in London.
I’ve decided that Saturday posts from now on will be a write up of sorts, of the things I experience each week.
A mediumship development course, is not about learning how to be a Medium, but rather how to develop your innate mediumship ability.
Unlike psychic ability that many believe (including me) is an ability that we ALL have and can learn to tune into relatively easily, mediumship is usually something that people are called to. Though we all have the ability to connect with spirit, acting as a Medium is something that requires a lot of development and earnest commitment.
In short, psychic ability is about reading the energy of a physical being/object, and mediumship is about connecting to the sprit world, and serving as a channel for messages.
As an intuitive Tarot reader I use my psychic ability a lot when reading, I literally pick up and read the energy of the person sitting with me, or tune into the energy of a person I am reading for remotely.
I do not need the aid of Tarot/Oracle cards to do this, I have read people’s energy my whole life without realising I was doing this, but I find using cards useful for reasons I will go into below.
As a medium, I channel messages from the spirit world also when I am reading, and often times when I am talking on a day to day basis, and on this blog. It is these channelled messages that I use for the Wednesday Wisdom posts.
I never thought of myself as a Medium until I was identified as one by an internationally regarded Trance Medium.
So after getting my head around this, I enlisted on a Development course with a view to develop my gifts:
(ps..doesn’t the above blurb remind you of the blurb at the beginning of a Law and Order episode?! Ha!)
Well this week I learnt for sure that I am psychic, or rather have strong and practiced psychic ability, as did everyone else in the room.
We sat in traditional development circle (about 8 of us including the tutor), meditated to access our higher consciousness and Guides, and then started ‘working’.
We split off into pairs and each of us conducted a 15 minute psychic reading for the other, with only minimal input from the person we were reading for, and a chance for feedback at the end.
This was the very first time that I have formally read for someone without the use of cards, and I found it to be a wonderful experience.
Something comes over me when I read for another, and part of the reason I like to use Tarot and Oracle cards is that it helps me to ground the immense energy waves that I pick up.
Without cards I could feel absolutely everything in my body that I was relating to the person I was reading for.
For instance, the person I read for first had an underlying throat infection, and my ears started to hurt as hers did.
The person I read for had the tendency to get flustered, so I felt hot and flushed whilst reading.
It helped me to truly understand that I receive my psychic impressions predominantly in the form of physical feelings.
I also realised more clearly that physical touch and using my hands to read people is something I naturally am able to do – this is another reason why I like reading cards, the touch element, I find deeply healing.
We also all read for the tutor one by one, going round the circle and it was fascinating to work as a group – reading for another as a collective, with all our different styles of working.
All of the readings we did for another, or received by another were accurate, healing and helped shift stubborn emotional wounds.
Some readers were able to pick up angelic energies, I was able to pick up colours and auras around a person.
Some readers received messages as pictures, some as strong impressions and some as deep knowing and feelings as did I.
At one point I was able to pick up images of a marching band or drummers in order to explain how a person I was reading for approached her life.
I also saw images of specific tarot cards in my minds eye which also helped me to describe an energy that was present.
This way of working was deeply rewarding in a way that I find hard to describe.
To have the encouragement of people who are all doing what you do, and who are able to truly see you as a soul and spirit was ground-breaking for me.
Wow – and it is only week 1 🙂
Much love and see you next week for more. Txx
