Mediumship is a interesting process considering we have little
to no control on the outcome of each session.
Each reading is unique and has it's own special and personal
No , mediumship reading is alike and you will not experience
it in the same way even twice.
Mediums are as almost as varied as their readings. Each carrying
their own unique style into the work.
But there are some constants in mediumship that you should
be made aware of.
VALIDATION : True mediumship seeks validation from the spirits
that come through.
There are many ways for a spirit to validate who they are
to you. You, being the person that is receiving the reading
and desiring the contact.
In mediumship circles the person or persons being read for
are know as the sitter or sitters .
You, as the sitter have a very special job during a reading
By your personal knowledge or through the personal knowledge
of others known to the spirit you can validate or invalidate
certain information that comes forth as the result of a medium
Some of this information can be validated during the course
of a reading
While some information may require validation after the reading
with friends or other family members whom are privy to this
Here are some examples of ways in which a spirit may try
to validate who they are :
Sometimes the medium will get the names very clearly or just
the initial. Also the spirit's personality traits may be described,
why? Because not all mediums hear, some ‘sense’
the information, some are shown, the signal is a bit like
Morse code or a series of dashes the dashes being the information
coming through the gaps the missing info or quite spots.
Most spirits are willing to show how they passed to the medium,
how? Either by giving the medium s sense of the area that
hurt before they passed or by showing them with pictures and
symbols, or by telling them.
Often spirits will give important dates of reference to further
They have been known to mention other family members. Sometimes
calling them by name.
They have also been known to mention a recent event even
if small in your current life or other family members lives
to show awareness of the here and now and their spiritual
presence at the event.
They have been known to show past events.
They have even been known show their favourite flower, book,
song or any favourite from their life or even yours.
And just to surprise us. They have even been known to find
some really unique way of validating themselves that we probably
have not even thought of yet.
All in all. the spirit may choose to use any of the above
methods or even none of them.
But they will find a way to validate themselves.
Sometimes a sitter will hold out for a specific validation
that they asked the spirit for in advance.
Sometimes this method works but also a lot of times it doesn’t.
That is why it is very important not to place any preconceived
expectations on the reading.
If you get your special validation great and if you do not,
just know that it is not always possible.
It is a good idea during a medium reading to take notes or
even tape record the reading, but this is down to an individual
as to if this is allowed.
Because you will want some kind of record of information
received. And you will not want to depend on memory to help
you sort out the information later.
One reason is because medium readings can have a over whelming
effect initially and you would most likely forget more than
A medium reading is and always should be considered a special
event in a person's life.
Just remember it’s not like being a rock star or an
actor, who have spent age learning their lines or rehearsing
their music, when a medium starts a reading be it in public
or private, they start with nothing! and only have the trust
in spirit and themselves that something will happen, no more
and no less.
