Properly Trained Mediums Have the Edge

Mediumship training works because it’s a step-by-step process of Unfoldment. What is Unfoldment? Read on and find out.

Upon launching your Mediumship training, you’ll begin the process of Mediumship “Unfoldment.” Unfoldment simply means that you’re developing your natural spirit contact skills step-by-step.

Each successive and successful spirit contact event helps you to build on a foundation and opens the door for even greater communication successes.

What If I Already See and Sense Spirits?

One of the most common questions I receive from individuals, who contact me about their natural Mediumship abilities, “Why do I need the training  to become a medium if I already see and sense spirits?” My response is that are numerous important reasons to train for Mediumship formally. You’ll find out these reasons as you read more.

However, before we get into these, if you read the biographies of well-known Mediums such as Doris Stokes, James Van Praagh, John Holland, Gordon, Smith, and others, most of them undertook some form of extensive training to develop their natural talent. To add to this, most of them also mention attending a development circle in their early stages of development. So, why is this?

How to Manage Your Natural Abilities

Mediumship requires management of natural abilities to forge a reliable link with the spirit realm. Additionally, there are protocols and specific steps that should be applied to safely ready a Medium for making spirit contact. Without these practices, over time, a Medium may become depleted in energy, experience difficulties in making spirit connections, messages become cloudy, or the Medium loses sight of their real purpose altogether.

Ultimately, without the understanding and knowledge of the workings of spirit connectivity, practicing Mediumship without proper training could cause an individual to feel like a ship without an anchor riding upon a tumultuous ocean.

Any medium worth their salt has been through extensive training with a qualified teacher or school.

Without a Qualified School or Training Guidance, Serious Problems Can Surface

Untrained natural mediums can have their problems. It is common for new mediums to haphazardly experience spirit visitations, see blurry and sometimes scary faces flying at them, have spirits popping in at inconvenient times, hear voicesees or music that can’t be accounted for, or even experience feelings of overload or feeling scattered much of the time. They may even think they are crazy!

Furthermore, the tendency to isolate may become difficult to overcome. Moreover, students in Mediumship training may decide not to closely interact with people as they are afraid individuals or friends will think they are strange and might ridicule them. Even worse, the novice medium might fear they could be expelled from their group of friends or support group.

The best training in Mediumship should build a strong foundation and also provide confidence. It’s learning that being a medium is a very natural thing and nothing to be ashamed of.

Time, Focus, Dedication, and a Sense of Divine Purpose

There is a lot that goes into developing Mediumship. It is not a complicated process, but it does require time, focus, dedication, and a sense of divine purpose for helping others. People who enter into formal training usually end up performing the best and most successful readings. They can fall back on their foundational learning when feeling stuck or dealing with a spirit that is having trouble communicating. They understand the importance of grounding and protection as well as proper breathing techniques. These are the mediums who get the most clients because of their ability to give readings that are precise, accurate, and can be substantiated by a client or group.

Every Student Has Unique Inborn Abilities

Excellent Mediumship training involves taking each student’s natural inborn abilities into consideration. Rather than changing how a growing medium might perceive spirits, the current skills should be encouraged and enhanced. And, new specialties might even surface. This is where some Mediumship training organizations fall short. They may insist upon the student doing it the school or teacher’s way often resulting in confusion and setbacks for the student. At Imagine Spirit, we specialize in considering each student is unique and focus on building on the individual’s unique skill sets.

As you begin to safely develop your Mediumship abilities, you will learn how to manage the changes that will start to happen, such as:

  • Physiological changes in the body.
  • Temporary aches and pains in the body that weren’t there before.
  • A sudden influx of symbolic images coming into the mind.
  • Feeling strong emotions or sadness that may be foreign to you.
  • Your chakras opening wider and the feeling of psychic senses being heightened.
  • An overload of spirit visitations.

Students Should Feel Safe and Encouraged During Training!

Training should always be encouraging and safe. Novices should be allowed to experiment with their own abilities without worry of being picked on or told they are doing things incorrectly.

In Summary

Structured Mediumship training lets you understand and become comfortable with the changes that happen within and around you as you consciously open to the spirit world. It allows you to build a trusting relationship with Mediumship helper gatekeeper guides that safeguard you. It also helps you to forge a telepathic link with spirits. The purpose of this is to gain evidential information. Evidential proof is necessary for identifying the spirit that is communicating. This assures the sitter that you are indeed connecting with their loved one or friend.

Furthermore, you’ll be able to sort out what emotions are yours and what feelings are caused by spirits. Any strange, new sensations felt in the body may be due to spirit contact. Of course, all this may sound a little scary and prohibitive, but I assure you it’s only temporary. As you continue to learn management your inherent abilities, your Mediumship abilities will soar!

Where to Start Training Mediumship Training

What kind of Mediumship training should you get? I suggest any reputable school or well-regarded teacher. When exploring possibilities, please do not put any person or school on a pedestal just because they seem to have excellent knowledge and demonstrate strong abilities. It’s O.K. to ask a lot of questions before signing up. I also recommend, rather than paying a large sum of money up front, to see if you can take a mini-course to determine if their way of teaching is the right fit for you. There are a lot of great teachers out there, and some who are not so great. You will find many online who don’t really know what they are doing. This is a fact.

Can you learn just as well from a home study course as opposed to training in-person? Absolutely! Our Mediumship Home Study Course was created just for this purpose. It allows those who do not have a school close by to safely and successfully develop their Mediumship skills. There are also real live recordings to listen to as individuals work through the course. We have students from all over the world, from Iraq to South America. So, if you are interested in true Mediumship training, give our course a try. You can read or download a Sample of 1 FREE.
