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!)
As mentioned in previous posts, we start off each and every development session with a meditation in order to raise our vibration.
This week in that beginning meditation, I saw myself as a baby receiving love from my dad who passed away over 8 years ago.
It was the most healing energy, to feel as though my child self was getting cared for and nurtured in a way as to help me now.
It was something I truly needed, and was a theme that reoccurred throughout the whole of this last session.
We were tasked with giving readings to each other for the purposes of providing higher level guidance and healing to help the sitter in their lives now.
The first reading I received referenced my baby-self once again.
The lady who read for me, saw my spiritual gifts as being in it’s baby stage, that I had many more gifts that I was not using, and that I was experiencing fear about moving into the true power I hold.
She couldn’t have been more spot on.
I am petrified! Lately I have begun to see how much fear I have in regards to truly being who I am meant to be.
I fear abandonment from those around me, I fear isolation and persecution.
Living as a psychic medium is not an easy way to be in our current society.
Moving forwards in my more traditional career as a Librarian, relating to all my friends and family who are not on this particular path, having them continue to relate to me – these are not easy things to do when I spend more and more time understanding that my main purpose here on earth is to use these gifts I have been given.
These are not energies that can be fully resolved in this blog post, and I strongly feel as though this push/pull will be a theme throughout this life for me.
However, doing this development course has shown me just what I can do, and how naturally it comes.
I will continue in development for quite some time to come, in advance courses and more traditional development circles.
As I develop, and as I live from a more powerfully authentic self, I believe that many around me will come up and meet me there.
Leaving the college after our last session for this term, I felt a shift in me that was undeniable.
I moved forwards a few more steps into my authentic self. My powerful self.
I left understanding recent choices I have made even more.
I left understanding just how far I have come in life and learning.
Over the few days afterwards, I felt emotions rising to the surface in ways that increased my healing.
I will be passing on this development to all of you who read the blog, truly exciting times ahead!
Much love Always Txx
