04 Apr 12 Ways to Improve Mediumship Skills
Here are 12 Ways to Improve Your Mediumship Abilities
1. Knowledge of Your Craft
In the beginnings of Mediumship development, it is imperative that not only do you learn important concepts but that you understand word definitions. Often, you will run across words and phrases such as the Astral Plane, spirit Operator, Transfiguration, Direct Voice Medium, and the like. Please take the time to learn the meanings of unfamiliar words or terms as you come across them. Visit Imagine spirit’s page for our Metaphysical Glossary of Terms.
2. Dedication and Practice
Just as a musician, artist, or athlete might practice for improving their skills, making a commitment to Mediumship development and practicing developmental exercises will likewise enhance successful spirit communication. I always say to students, “Practice, practice, and more practice!” If life seems to get in the way of your Mediumship studies, or if you are feeling stressed about not practicing, put your studies aside for a while and return to them when you are more refreshed and rested. There is no hurry. Spirits will always be waiting and ready for you to make contact with them.
3. Having Patience
Mediumship training requires patience and a willingness to go through the different stages of development. Mediumship unfoldment cannot be hurried. If you find that you suddenly reach a point where the flow seems to stop, and messages don’t seem to be readily forthcoming, this too may signal it’s time to take a break from your studies. The duration of feeling blocked could last a few days to a few weeks. Be assured that the flow will eventually resume again if you are patient and do not allow yourself to become concerned about it.
Watch Imagine Spirit’s movie about The Art of Mediumship Unfoldment:
If you are looking for something frivolous to do on a weekend afternoon or just want to impress your friends, you will be significantly limited in successful spirit contact. By having a sincere desire to grow and progress in your Mediumship skills, you will have a greater connection with the World of Spirits. Also, having a genuine sense of humility about your efforts for contacting spirits will significantly increase your chances of enhanced spirit communication.
5. Watch What You Eat and Drink
During serious development of Mediumship and/or psychic training, your body will be going through some mental and physiological changes. This is because the body and mind are adjusting to the higher frequencies needed for making conscious spirit contact and/or increasing psychic skill sets. Here are a few valuable eating tips to help you in the developmental process:
1. Eat plenty of protein or boost up with protein bars or protein powder.
2. On days when you are doing serious spiritual work, try to avoid red meat. This is because your system is using a lot of energy to digest the meat.
3. Drink lots of water to keep hydrated. Spirit communication and even meditation can dehydrate the body so keep plenty of water close at hand.
4. Get plenty of sleep. Again, when psychically or spiritually developing, there may be a temporary depletion of energies.
5. Try and avoid excessive sugar intake. The desire for sweets is typical for most of us but for some reason in psychic or Mediumship development, the desire for sugar increases.
6. Avoid excessive amounts of alcohol. Alcohol will just cloud results. The same applies to mood-altering drugs and smoking. Needed medications should not be abandoned. Always consult your Dr. before stopping medications prescribed.
6. Set an Intention
An intention is directed thought of purpose. For any session geared towards communicating with the Spirit World, psychic readings, or even meditation, etc., you will need to hold focus on what you desire to accomplish. For example think to yourself, “I am putting myself in the right frame of being to communicate with spirits.” This will shift the body and mind into the spirit contact mode. Also, saying any kind of prayer for protection and expressing gratitude before any spiritual session will set the stage for safely receiving spirit messages.
7. Have a Sense of Responsibility
It is imperative for you to understand that you will be using your newly enhanced Mediumship abilities to enrich the lives of others and, more importantly, to bring them peace, comfort, and healing. Mediumship is a great responsibility; especially when working with the public. Always have the mindset that you are operating from the highest and best intentions.
8. Set Aside Some Daily Meditation Time
Even if it’s only ten minutes a day, meditation will go a long way for your psychic senses to be honed and ready for spirit contact. If meditation is hard for you, listen to some meditation music. You will find the time going by quickly and eventually may decide to increase the amount of time spent in meditation.
9. Make an Effort to Build Trusting Relationships with Your Spirit Helper Guides
A budding medium will automatically have unique Mediumship spirit guides that flock in to help them develop. In terms Mediumship, these are called Spirit Helper Guides. If you truly believe that your guides are always with you to aid an assist if you can’t see, sense or hear them, will provide an excellent foundation of greater confidence to work from. Also, going into meditation and asking who these guides are is always beneficial for starting to build a trusting and lasting relationship with them. Keep a journal of your findings and insights.
10. Learn Spirit Contact Protection Methods
There is a universal law that states: “Like attracts like” so anyone with good intentions and keeping their energy high during spirit contact needn’t worry too much about harmful spirits from intruding. Yet erecting a shield of protection is standard practice for anyone either psychically developing or for making contact with the realm of Spirits. There are many wonderful ways a novice, or advanced level Medium, can protect themselves from unwanted spirits crashing a session or wanting to attach. Using the energy of white or gold light and by envisioning this light surrounding them, is one of the best ways to immediately erect a boundary of reliable protection. I have a great exercise in Imagine spirit’s Psychic Insights for the week of March 21st, 2017. It’s called:

11. Adopt an Attitude that Mediumship is a Sacred Endeavor
Having an attitude of respect combined with kindness and understanding goes a long way for more fulfilling and fruitful sessions with spirit. Spirits have the same emotions as we do. If they are treated with disdain or scorn for any reason, spirits, in general, may begin to withdraw from you.
12. Always Trust Your Impressions of Spirits
My students will often hear me say, “Trust what you get.” It is human nature to forget this all important advice when in actual sessions or a development circle. I often hear complaints like, “I think I made contact with a spirit but it was probably my imagination.” Or, “I made it all up.” Strike these thoughts right away! Although your imagination does play a role in priming the pump for the flow of interactive conversations to begin, you will soon start to notice that an authentic connection has been made. Then it’s up to you to open up to receive any information forthcoming from the spirit(s) you have connected with.
Summary and Perhaps the Most Important Tip of All!
Now that you have read about and hopefully adopted these 12 very simple but vital tips, there is one more essential tip I would like to mention. If you are a novice Medium and just beginning your training, or even a practicing Medium, it’s easy to lose confidence when spirit contact doesn’t seem to happen right away. To overcome this, just believe in yourself. That’s right. Believe that you have what it takes to become a qualified and excellent Medium! Write it on your bathroom mirror, post it on your refrigerator, and even tape a note on your coffee maker! I AM AN EXCELLENT AND ACCURATE MEDIUM. SPIRITS COME TO ME EASILY AND EFFORTLESSLY!
