For Students New to Psychic or Mediumship Training, Initial Fear or Concern Is Not Unusual
Anytime we venture into the unknown, there is a natural element of fear involved. This holds true for beginning Mediumship development.
Mediumship development fears often stems from what’s shown on television and in the movies. Too often the media portrays mediums contacting spirits in a negative light. Or, mediums are depicted as being fraudulent and untrustworthy. Whether you believe these portrayals to be accurate or not, there still may be a nagging doubt that keeps you from launching into Mediumship Development Training.
Another cause for Mediumship development fear could stem from a bad experience as a child? Are you someone that has experienced negative spirit activity at some time in your life? Do you fear spirits could do you harm?
Other sources of Mediumship development fear may come from outside influences such as:
- Friends and co-workers
- Church disapproval
- What It Says in the Bible
- Public opinion of mediums in general
These kinds of pressures or experiences can dampen anyone’s enthusiasm for beginning spirit communication studies. However, but I can emphatically assure you that if Mediumship development were bad, immoral or dangerous in any way, I would not be teaching it.
What are Some Other Reasons for Having Fear?
For the most part, fear stems from the not knowing of what might happen. It’s the “what ifs.”
Any fears you may have, must be uncovered if you sincerely wish to progress in your Mediumship studies. Then they must be dealt with
The More We Resist Something, the More it Becomes a Problem
Furthermore, I always say that the more we resist something, the more it becomes firmly entrenched within our mind and body. If you accept that that you have fears–even little ones, the easier it becomes to move beyond them and forge ahead with your training.
Start Removing Blocks and Fears Now!
If you suspect you have some subconscious resistance within you, be honest with yourself about this. Importantly, the best way to start dealing with and releasing any blockages is to sit down, think on it, and identify what your particular fear(s) might be. After contemplating for a while, write down everything which comes to mind. Next, think back on how, where, or when in your life the fear may have possibly originated.
Surprisingly, you may believe that you are without fear whatsoever only to discover that a few are lurking in the shadow. If you genuinely don’t have serious concerns about starting your training, that’s great!
Finally, read over your listed concerns. What doesn’t ring true for you after all, cross it off. By reviewing what you have listed, you’ve already begun the releasing process. Now read your list for a second time and now address the first fear. Come up with a statement which is the exact opposite of that fear. Here’s an example of what one might be:
“I am afraid that I am not talented enough or won’t be able to become a good medium.”
Firmly counter this with, “I am a gifted Medium and as capable and talented as anyone else. My abilities come to me easily and effortlessly.”
See how easy that was? Now glance over the following exercise a few times and then practice doing it until you feel you have mastered the technique.
Ready. Set. Go!
- Imagine in your mind a lovely setting which makes you feel cozy and secure—like a beach or mountain retreat. Now turn your attention to your physical body. Start with one fear that you’ve written down. Think about your fear issue and actually feel what part of your body a physical reaction is occurring. You might notice a tingle, a feeling in the gut area, or experience a tiny sharp or dull pain somewhere. Are you experiencing an uncomfortable chill? If so, think on the nature of the fear and move your attention to where the sensation occurred.
- At this point, imagine reaching into your body and PULLING this debilitating energy from you as one might easily remove a diseased internal organ! Hold it in your hand. What does it look like? Is it a black icky substance or some other color? Does it have a texture? Does it have an odor?
- As you do this, begin talk to the object in your hand as it it’s alive. Ask it where it came from? Why is it there? Have a real confrontation and grill this thing pretty hard. You’ll begin to feel more in control of your thoughts and fears. If surprising answers come, journal them.
- Now acknowledge this “thing” and let it know it’s no longer needed. It may even “squeak” and protest a little, but you are in charge now. You have the power to demand that it is entirely gone.
- Next, envision this object dissolving away until there is nothing left. Imagine that any residual energy left over from it, however minuscule, is instantly transformed into positive light-filled energy.
- At this time, feel confident that this issue is completely removed from you. Furthermore, any tenseness, anxieties, or fearful responses that relate to the fear are decreasing in power!
Feel Confident the Fear Is Dissolving
Feel how beautiful it is to have obstacles written down dissolving! Finally, take a few relaxing moments to enjoy the feeling of being lighter and freer from issues which may have bothered you.
- Repeat for all the blocks and fears listed on your paper. If you are tired, work on them another time. There’s no need to tackle all of them at once. Take a few deep breaths, expel the last one forcibly, and then ground yourself once again.
Note: You may have to work on a particular issue more than once. This is entirely normal depending on how long and deeply entrenched the fear was within you.
