Signs of Mediumship
Though the signs that one is a medium are usually fairly strong, many who are mediums may still find themselves shrugging experiences off as coincidences. There are also many who might think since no one else seems to be experiencing the same thing, they must be going crazy, thus they tend to keep their experiences to themselves, without trying to explore them further to better learn how to use the gift of mediumship.
Some of the most natural signs of mediumship may actually seem subtle, but even the most subtle of signs are still profound. As with anything else in life, that which we give energy to, or pay attention to, expands. However, often times, fear may set in as a natural medium often may think what they are experiencing may somehow be able to harm them.
A natural medium may spend years living in fear of the gift of mediumship. In being afraid of the gift, the resistance, only actually brings more of that which is associated with the most fear. In essence, the fear actually makes the gift stronger, but in doing so, brings more and more of the same experiences that are feared the most.
Learning to work with this beautiful gift, ultimately brings feelings of joy that are truly indescribable. There is actually a very fine line on which the natural medium stands. The difference in what the natural medium experiences is in their own perception, thought patterns and emotions in relation to the gift. The pathway to getting through the fear is learning to use it for the purpose it is meant to be used for.
A medium is a natural channel, though only an observer. Detachment can be learned. I highly suggest learning to work with the gift of mediumship rather than trying to ignore it, or repress it in any way, as this especially has its consequences to our lives, health, and overall happiness.
Though there are many different types of fear that may be associated with the gift of mediumship, just on the other side of those fears is a much more joyful life. Often just in better understanding the gift, many fears are naturally released. Other fears may be more deeply seeded, and may take a little more work in learning to let go, however the journey brings tremendous amounts of growth.
Are You A Medium?
The natural signs of mediumship range from subtle to much more pronounced, and may vary according to life themes, personalities, and natural environments. The following are just a few among common signs I have often seen among natural mediums I have helped work through fears in relation to their gift. You may have one, some, or all, as well as others that are not listed here. You may also have different variations of the signs depending on whether your gift deals more with those who may be trapped here as ghosts, those spirits who have crossed to the other side, guides, higher beings, or any combination of these, including all.
You often wake between 3am and 4am, which may or may not be accompanied by a feeling of having not been alone.
You often have vivid dreams involving loved ones who have passed to the other side, and feel upon waking, the person or people in your dreams were actually with you.
When you walk into different buildings or environments, there is sometimes an instant feeling of not being alone, or feeling as if you are being watched.
You see energy of many types that others don’t seem to see.
When you close your eyes at night to welcome sleep, you see many faces of people you do not know, appearing one at a time at different paces. This may sometimes be so fast you are only catching glimpses of a face before another appears in its place.
You often feel “energy shifts” in your environment, even when you may be alone.
You have seen people who are out of place (in your home, or anywhere) and dressed in clothing not related to modern dress. You may or may not have feelings that show up in association with seeing, depending upon whether or not you are also empathic.
You hear voices that others don’t hear, or voices that seem to only be speaking to you.
When you get quiet, or begin to be in a meditative state of mind, you often hear a high pitched ringing sound in your ears that may come and go.
If you are a writer, you can sometimes sit down to write, and naturally flow so easily, and later when you read what you have written, there are thoughts such as, “Did I write that?”, or not fully remembering the thought process that produced the writing.
You seem to “just know” facts in relation to cases you hear about involving someone who has passed in which circumstances are being investigated, or missing persons cases you may become aware of. (You may also receive information in much stronger ways such as seeing, or hearing related information either in sleep or awake.)
You dream about people you do not know.
You have thoughts that appear in your thought stream, that you know are not your own, either by a notable voice or by the thought just not belonging or both.
You have seen loved ones in your environment who have already passed to the other side. (often appearing just as if they were still here)
You have heard voices of loved ones who have passed, or maybe even their laugh, giving you the feeling that if you turn around, you will see them.
You often smell scents in your environment that no one else seems to smell, such as a perfume, cigar, cigarette, or pipe smoke when no one is smoking, or any range of various other smells.
You have met people in human form (or even in some cases, spoke to by phone) that on some level, at some point, you became aware they were not actually human. (as in perhaps angels in human form)
You had “imaginary friends” as a child.
You were often described as “being in your own little world” as a child. (or may be even still, as an adult)
Paranormal occurrences happen around you no matter where you go.
Others in your family have told you they have witnessed you talking with someone openly while you were sound asleep.
While these are just a few signs of natural mediumship, these are among the most common I have observed in my years of working with natural mediums to further develop, understand, and learn to work with the gift.
As with all gifts, there is a reason you have the gift of mediumship. Through learning to work with your natural medium abilities, you will begin to see what that reason is, and where your pathway of service may begin.
