    A Guide To Mediumship

    A BEGINNERS GUIDE TO UNDERSTANDING MEDIUMSHIP AND HOW TO CONNECT TO YOUR GUIDE AND SPIRIT

    By auras 









    Chapter 1   Psychic Links & Spirit Links - The difference between the two

    A Psychic reading is when you read for a person who is still alive and you read their energy or soul. This can be done even if they are not in the same room as you it doesn't matter. A lot of people use cards as a tool to help with a psychic connection as it starts the information flowing. When you do a psychic reading you are always consciously or unconsciously using your energy to search for information to the front of your auric field. When mediums work with Tarot, Angel or Oracle cards they are connecting on a psychic link and using the cards a tool to receive and translate the information that they receive psychically.
     
    This type of reading can be draining and make you tired as you are searching for information yourself and its harder work on your energy than a spirit link. Some psychic mediums call themselves clairvoyant mediums. This means to see the future, and they work with psychic links or readings.
     
    A spirit reading or mediumship reading is when a medium is given information by a person in spirit with the help of their spirit guide. This information is received and interpreted by the medium and passed on by them to the person on the earth that it is intended for. The medium receives information through use of the Clair’s. The “Clair’s” are clairaudience hearing, clairvoyance, seeing, clairsentience feeling, clairgustance smelling, clairknowing when you just know.
     
    When working with a spirit link the medium is using their energy behind or behind and to the side with or without knowing this. Reading with a spirit link is easier on the medium as you are there receiving information rather than searching for it. A spirit link does dehydrate you more than you will realise as spirit use the moisture from our body which is why you need to top up your water level before, during and after reading. Spirit are also attracted to water more as it helps them communicate and they are stronger with it around and you will find that your guide will make their presence known more to you when you are in the shower or bath and you will hear your guide strongest in these places when you are learning.
    A lot of mediums work with both psychic and spirit links and they blend together, but it doesn't matter how you work as long as you try to learn recognise when you have spirit with you giving you your information and when it’s you searching for information or doing a psychic link reading. Sometimes just being able to understand the difference between the two types of reading can be a helpful start in this understanding process.

    Chapter 2   Understanding Spirit Guides

    Everyone has one main spirit guide, and a team of other helper guides. Your main guide is with you before you are born and stays with you to help you, throughout your earthly life. They are a spirit, a soul who has lived an earthly human life and have decided to dedicate their next part of their existence to serving spirit by serving you. They can be any person from any walk of life but they will be the right one for you. Some guides show themselves as an animal for a short time, until they feel that their person or medium is at the right stage to know the real them in their human form. Your main guide is always there, always just a thought away. Sometimes they work with your knowledge, mostly they work without your knowledge that they are even there. It is a very unselfish thing for them to choose to do, to dedicate this part of their existence to one person. They know when they do this, that there is a very good chance that they may not be acknowledged or even recognised as they are with their person every day as they help to guide them along their life’s path.

    Your main spirit guide is with you before you incarnate and helps you as you work out your plan for this incarnation. The lessons that you choose to learn, the things you will experience and the things that you need to go through to progress at soul level. They work with other peoples guides who are close to you, as you walk on your earthly path. They ensure that coincidences, the accidental meeting of people at the right time occurs. If their person is likely to become a medium or have mediumistic or healing tendencies or will work for spirit in some way, they will make sure that they reveal themselves to their medium or their person, at the planned time. Again this will be done by making sure that you are in the right place at the right time, read the right thing, join the right group or get to the right place to help you. Once the seed is planted then the seed can grow.

    Contacting your guide – getting to know them better

    Your spirit guide will work with you and be there for you, and can come to you at any time of the day. You do not need to meditate for them to draw close to you. You simply have to send out a thought to your guide that you wish them to come close to you, and that intention is enough for them. You do not need to know their name or if they are male or female to do this, just send out that thought and they will be there. People often describe a hot or a cold feeling or a tingling all over, others say it is like that feeling when you say, someone walked over my grave, yes that’s your guide, saying hello. You are able to learn more about your guide through meditation and there are several guided meditations out there in CD form, individual free down loadable tracks which will help you in this meeting process, until you are more experienced and then can meditate and let your guide take you into meditation and show you what you need to know. As you get to know your guide you will get to know their individual sign which they will show you over and over again. This is their calling card and can be many things, a hot patch, a cold patch, a feeling like a beard growing, a tickling in a particular spot etc. They will if you ask them to show you this and then repeat it for you and so every time you work with them or they draw close to you, you know it is this one special guide there for you.

    The bond of trust between a guide and their medium

    One of the key things is the bond of trust that builds up between a guide and their medium. It is at the end of the day a loving but working relationship. You will always have your guides unconditional love and understanding, as you go through the lessons that they put in your path. They will stand with you side by side, when you question why you are going through these things and as we all do from time to time feel the need to pause, but they wait and then they guide you back to where you need to be. They know the plan that you drew up for yourself before you incarnated and they remember, where as you forget. This is one of their roles, to guide you along your earthly path.



    Chapter 3   Working with your own Spirit Guide

    As things fall into place on the path as a medium, you grow with learning these lessons, and understand that there will be more to come. When you are communicating with spirit and passing a message on, at the end of the day it is just you and your guide working as a team. This is the working relationship side. They are responsible for locating the spirits who wish to communicate through you for the loved ones on the earth that you intend to work with. They are responsible for working with the spirit they locate communicating through the medium and for the way that the information is received by their medium. They build up knowledge of what their medium needs to receive the information, how they receive things, and the way that a message is best communicated. Their medium in turn asks for help with things and the guide responds and does whatever they can to assist. Without your guide in place as a medium you are unable to work, or to get any information. It is the realisation of this working and loving relationship that is needed and then can be built upon to build the bond of trust between guide and their medium.

    Your spirit guide - Their calling card - (A connection exercise to find your spirit guides calling card)

    This is a short three part exercise is designed to help those who want to know more about their spirit guide, actively learn to feel them or meet them and learn their calling card. The calling card is the unique feeling that your guide gives to only you their medium. Learning this sign whether it is a cold patch, hot patch, at tickly spot etc., is important as it means that you know that it is your guide and not another spirit person with you when you connect to spirit. This sign can be given by the spirit guide to reassure their medium that they are with them and ready to help them work with spirit. A lot of mediums will not connect to spirit without this calling card or reassurance from their guide that they are with them and it is alright for them to connect.

    Read the exercise through first and then whilst either lying down or sitting up straight with your feet on the floor in a quite area, close your eyes and run through this quick exercise. When you have finished open your eyes.

    Part one – Connecting to spirit
    Imagine your aura or your energy field as a bubble around your body, front, back, sides and over your head. The energy can be clear, coloured, multi coloured, and it’s up to you it’s your energy. Now concentrate on your breathing slowing it down in and out. Now with every out breath imagine your energy bubble/aura expanding away from your body, upwards, outwards, front, sides and back. With each out breath push it out more, and more, expanding it out, more and more. It can grow to fill the room, you can push it out through the roof of your house, towards the stars, it’s up to you, just push it out and when you are happy, stops.
    Keeping your energy there ask for the white light of spirit to shine down on you and enter your body through your head, through your crown chakra. Feel this light energy as it fills your body. Then with your next out breath, push it out through your stomach or sacral chakra into your energy field/aura. See or feel the light energy mixing with your own, the colours mixing or merging with ease.
    When you are ready, re- focus on the energy entering your body still your crown chakra. Then quick as a flash see it coming into your body down the length of your spine and below and back up again, faster and faster, quicker and quicker until it is a continuous up and down flow constant and continuous. When you are ready open your eyes.

    Part two – Connecting with your guide and receiving their calling card
    I want you now to send out your thoughts to your guide, the one person that truly knows you and has agreed to give up this part of their eternity to help and guide you on this physical life’s path. Know that the bond of love is their already between you and feel this as you send out your thoughts to them to come close to you into your energy. Ask them in your mind to stand behind you in your energy and allow them to come into your space.

    Ask them now to come as close as they can into your energy and feel them with you. They know what you want to do tonight already but need your invitation and your acceptance to be able to blend with you their medium as closely as you can allow.

    Close your eyes (after you read this bit), and ask them to now give you their sign that it is them, their calling card so you know it it’s your guide with you. Feel with all of your mind and body and notice any changes, hot cold tickles beard a pulling on your ear. Mine is a hot patch on the left hand side of my neck. I now want you to ask them to take the sign away. Then ask them to bring it back. Feel with all of yourself, feel them and their energy and love and their calling card. Then ask them to take it away. Ask them to do it a final time and then thank them and ask them to take it away. Then you may wish to speak to them or sit with them for a few special moments. Then open your eyes.

    Part three - Closing down after connecting with spirit
    Close your eyes and send out your thoughts to your guide of love and thank them for working with you as you have worked with them. Thank them for the way you have connected tonight as guide and mediums together in partnership. Thank them for the love that they give you and for the special bond that you share. Add your own words as you feel.

    Ask that the energy that has been built up whilst you have been working with spirit be sent out into the universe or into the world to be used where it is needed most. To heal the sick and to comfort the suffering. Then imagine your energy bubble shrinking back down, to your body.

    This is a quick way of closing down after you have connected to spirit. Some people make it more complicated than others; it’s down to what is right for you and how you have been taught. This way will close you to spirit and by sending out the intention that you wish to close yourself off from spirit, your spirit guide has the intelligence to do the rest for you, protect you and close you down. You need to close down after every spirit connection or you will stay open and have spirit popping around you and into your everyday life. This becomes draining and is not physically good for you. You need to be able to live your normal life without connecting to spirit every five minutes. Be in control, learn the correct way and you will find that connecting and closing to spirit becomes part of a natural process as you begin your pathway with spirit.

    Some people may say a small prayer. Do what is right for you.

    Make sure you have a drink of water to top up your water levels after connecting with spirit. Some people will feel light headed or dizzy after connecting with spirit, this is purely because they need to top up their water levels. This will also usually only occur in the early stages of developing as a medium as your body gets used to the new vibrations that it is meeting with when working with spirit. Always drink plenty of water when you work with spirit at whatever stage of development you are at.


    Chapter 4   Connecting to spirit and energy control

    Mediums are taught ways to connect to spirit before they give a message. All mediums will use some form of energy expansion or connection technique to help them get ready to work with spirit. There are lots of different ways and none are wrong, it is just best to try a few before you work out what is best for you. Some people like to say a prayer or do some form of protection. If you have not been taught how to connect to spirit or are interested in other ways of connecting with spirit before you do readings, this may help you.

    All matter and energy vibrates, we vibrate as human and so do spirit. We are all energy and vibrate on different levels. Humans vibrate at a slower rate and spirit vibrates on a higher or faster rate.  

    When a medium connects to spirit, they have to raise their vibrations and the spirit guide and spirit communicating through the medium has to lower their vibrations until the two meet in the middle. When you feel that there is a weak link or the information is not flowing, it is just that your energy levels or vibrations are not raised enough for spirit to communicate properly with you. Your energy levels or vibrations will also go up and down as you do your reading. If you get a no answer or a not sure answer during your reading, your energy will shrink back down and you have to push it back out again to be able to continue with the reading.  Some people will naturally do this, most have to be aware of it and practice it and be conscious of it during a reading and that way you are able to be in control and get the most amount of evidence through in your reading for your sitter.



    Chapter 5   Using your raised energy to help your connection and link with spirit

    This is an exercise that is a quick and easy way to expand your own energy and raise your own vibrations and then connect to spirit. It may help to read it first and then close your eyes as it is a visualisation exercise. If you keep practicing and it works for you then you will get the hang of it and do it with your eyes open.

    Imagine your aura or your energy field as a bubble around your body, front, back, sides and over your head. The energy can be clear, coloured, multi coloured, it’s up to you it’s your energy. Now concentrate on your breathing slowing it down in and out. Now with every out breath imagine your energy bubble/aura expanding away from your body, upwards, outwards, front, sides and back. With each out breath push it out more, and more, expanding it out, more and more. It can grow to fill the room, you can push it out through the roof of your house, towards the stars, it’s up to you, just push it out and when you are happy, stop.
    Keeping your energy there ask for the white light of spirit to shine down on you and enter your body through your head, through your crown chakra. Feel this light energy as it fills your body. Then with your next out breath, push it out through your stomach or solar plexus chakra into your energy field/aura. See or feel the light energy mixing with your own, the colours mixing or merging with ease.
    When you are ready re focus on the energy entering your body still your crown chakra. Then quick as a flash see it coming into your body down the length of your spine and below and back up again, faster and faster, quicker and quicker until it is a continuous up and down flow constant and continuous. When you are ready open your eyes.

    You should feel, lighter, lifted and happy. You are now connected to spirit. This process helps you first grow or expand your energy or auric field and raise your vibrations. Then when you have raised them it connects you to spirit and lets spirit lower their vibrations to merge with yours.



    Chapter 6   Working with spirit as a medium whilst using your raised energy

    You are now working with your own energy whilst you are connected to spirit. Keep the bubble in your mind. If you get a no in your message or a don't know, consciously visualise your energy pushing out again, the bubble pushing out and get that re-connection you need to keep the connection strong with spirit as you work. Ask your guides to help you with this and they will.

    If you are connected in this way and still are having trouble connecting, feel that the link is weak or can't get the evidence you need, then the other reason will be that the person communicating through you in spirit is too far away from you on the edge of your energy bubble and you need them to come in to your energy as close as you possibly can to get the information from them to pass on to their loved ones in their message. You need to mentally or verbally ask the spirit working with you to move as close into your energy as they can, get them in as close as you can till you can feel them really feel them. You are in control and sometime will have to tell them what to do to communicate through you. Your guide will at all times be in place right behind you and will always be as close to you as it is possible to get.

    This is why, when you see mediums on a platform in a church or doing a demonstration, they will move around a lot or move forwards and backwards. It is because they are moving themselves into the energy of the spirit that they are working with. Sometimes it helps when you want to get your link with spirit to stand up to do it, you will find yourself moving backwards and forwards side to side, just go with it. When you have your link, you can ask them mentally or verbally to move with you to the chair where you are working to give out your message and your guide will help you.

    When spirit work with us as mediums they will use the moisture in our bodies and it is easy to become dehydrated. Drink plenty of water before, during and after you do a message and this will keep you hydrated, concentrating properly and keep your energy up where it needs to be. This again is why all mediums in circle, on platform or doing private sittings always drink a lot of water, and if you try this when you are working with spirit it should help you.



    Chapter 7   Closing down

    It is vitally important for you to close down as a medium EVERY TIME you finish working with spirit. As soon as you start to work with spirit you are in the eyes of spirit, a medium, you just have to develop your mediumistic abilities. You will vibrate on a higher frequency than others on the earth plane, when you start to work with spirit. Those in spirit will see your light shining brighter than others and know that they can possibly communicate through you to their loved ones. You will find your own family and loved ones in spirit, and those of friends/strangers will come to you because of this. You must be aware of this and stay closed to this unless you and your guide wish you to bring a message through. If you do not, then your energy will be drained and you will find that you are not fully feeling very with it/day dreaming etc. You need to keep living your physical life, and so asking your guides not to connect when you are working etc will also help you.

    When you have been working as a medium you must always and every time close down after you have finished your message(s).
    Again there is no wrong or right way to close down it can range from really quick to very complicated and will depend on your teachings and background with working with spirit. If you need a quick and easy way to disconnect and close down, then here is one for you. It is all about intentions and if your thoughts are saying to your guide close me down, then they will do.

    Close your eyes and send out your thoughts to your guide of love and thank them for working with you as you have worked with them. As guide and mediums together in partnership. Ask that the energy that has been built up whilst you have been working with spirit be sent out into the universe or into the world to be used where it is needed most. To heal the sick, to comfort the suffering. Then imagine your energy bubble shrinking back down, to your body. Some people may say a small prayer. Do what is right for you.

    When you are closed down, your spirit guide has the intelligence to stop all spirits from coming though with messages for you. They will do this for you and protect you. All you have to do is ask them once to do this for you every time you close down, then you can consider it done.

    Working with spirit is a two way process, as soon as you start you build your relationship with your guide. They are your guide and you are their medium. Ask your guide for help to communicate with spirit, with your messages, to open and close and they will always do their best to help you.

    Auras, you mustn't say you wrote this if you didn't. Even if you're friends with her and she gave you permission to post it, I doubt very strongly that she would agree to you saying you wrote it.

    There are some amazing books out there - Lost count of the number of books I have read - it is good to get different views or opinions from authors as each one  puts their own slant on the subject. :meditating:
