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 per se, 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 spirit world, and serving as a channel for messages.
As an intuitive Tarot card 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.
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!)
No, I did not meet up with Shakespeare’s spirit this week!
Instead we did some platform work.
A professional medium’s work will often include standing on a platform in a room full of people, and giving messages from departed loved ones.
It is the kind of scene you may have seen on a TV show.
I have only been to a demonstration like this once, and I was blown away by how beautifully moving it was.
So this week, we did this kind of session amongst ourselves in class.
We had to stand in front of the group, and link with whichever spirit wanted to come in, and deliver a message to who that spirit was related to.
This was daunting stuff!
Accuracy is even more key when you are reading for a group of people.
You have to be able to relay facts about the spirit in such a specific way that only one member of the audience will recognise the energy as being for them.
Something about standing in front of an audience lends an extra layer of apprehension and pressure.
Yet do it we did.
I linked with two spirits that had messages for the tutor, and delivered those messages as clearly as I could.
The first spirit that linked with me was full of reverence and sorrow, a religious man who was actually a priest when living.
He used a variety of different symbols to show me who he was, but it took quite a bit of decoding.
In contrast, the second energy showed me her full image complete with her dog, and was even so kind as to tell me the name of the breed. (German Shepherd in case you were wondering!)
She showed me her surroundings too.
All I had to do in this case was describe what I saw.
Both energies had heartfelt messages to pass on.
I was exhausted after this 8 minute reading – to think that platform mediums stand on stage for a full hour, and do this!
Will that be me one day?
I have to say I can see it.
Me on stage – what next?!
Next week is the last week of the course, and I already know that when term begins in September I will be continuing onto the advanced aspect of the course.
I’m feeling sad that next week will mark the end of this particular part of the journey, but I am so ready for a rest!
It has been intense!
Much love Txx
