Mediumship Myths – Do Psychic Mediums Need Training?

 

 

Anytime you see a psychic medium at work either in a one on one setting or on stage, ninety-nine times out of a hundred, he or she is a trained medium. It doesn’t seem to matter at what age someone begins this journey, whether natural born, as a child, or if they uncover this ability later in life, a good medium, like becoming a great musician or athelete, excells because they set that goal, work har developing their gift, and have a lot of training under their belt. 

Learning how to do spirit communication is like learning an entirely new language. Even the way a psychic medium receives information is new and strange. A medium communicates with the spirit world through their psychic senses called the “Clairs.” The three major “Clairs” are clairvoyance, clairaudience and clairsentience. It takes time for a psychic medium to understand how this works within them and what their personal symbols mean. 

Receiving proper training helps a medium develop all their psychic senses, instead of using just one primary psychic sense, and increases their range and sensitivity. The extent to which most psychic mediums train their psychic abilities and work with the spirit world is outside the awareness of the general public. Even after years of dedication and training, there are still days when communicating with spirit world is confounding, frustrating and has an elusive quality to it.

Today, to become a psychic medium, there are schools, certificate programs and online seminars that help a medium understand and master their gift. In the beginning days of mediumship, during the Victorian era, the only training mediums had access to was to sit in a circle, with the same people every week for many years, cultivating their communication with the spirit world.

In a future blog post, I’ll get into specific exercises that mediums use to develop their psychic senses. In this post, I wanted to explain that good mediums aren’t a dime a dozen. They’re dedicated professionals who’ve invested time and money in their training, working with the spirit world, to get the messages from spirit right. (This is no small feat!) A good medium wants the same thing for you in a mediumship session as you want for yourself – authentic and comforting communication with your loved ones who are on the Other Side.

Top Ten Types of Psychic Readings You Can Get in Boston

 

Mediumship readings, talking to your loved ones on the Other Side, top the list of the most popular psychic readings. Psychic intuitive sessions, reading a person’s or people’s energy field(s), is the second most popular. As I’ve said in previous blog posts, there’s a big difference between psychic medium readings and psychic intuitive readings, and you need to know what type of reading you want, so you book the right psychic. Did you know there are also other types of readings? Here are ten popular types of psychic readings in the metro Boston area.. The list below is not in any particular order. 

Fortune Telling – fortune telling dates back to the earliest civilisations. Anthropologists have found some form of divination in every culture. Today, predicting the future is considered fortune-telling. Surprisingly, not all psychics believe you can predict the future. Reading tea leaves and regular playing cards among other techniques are considered fortune-telling.

Tarot Card Readings – Tarot cards go back to the 14th century. Later they became a board game for the Italian royalty. In the past, tarot cards have been synonymous with fortune telling, but today, many different types of readers use tarot cards. Some people prefer readings with tarot cards because it feels less invasive. I still use tarot cards because the color of the cards stimulates my psychic ability.

Psychic Intuitive Sessions – These readings are usually spiritually based. The intuitive reads the energy of the person in front of them and people, places and things on the earth plane. Information about that client’s pas, present and future are contained in that client’s aura or energy field.

Angel Card Readings – Angel Card readings are similar to psychic intuitive readings except that the reader uses a special angel deck and calls on the angelic realm for divine guidance.

Psychic MediumshipThese readings are specifically about talking to a client’s loved one’s who have died. The medium is not tapping into the energy in that person’s aura. You can’t choose which spirit will show up though they should be familiar to you so you can verify details that the medium gives you.Sometimes, you may hear from an unwanted spirit. Mediumship readings are especially helpful if someone is bereaved. Hearing from their loved ones and knowing they’re okay can be healing.

Group Readings – Group readings are usually conducted by a psychic medium with 3 or more people in the room at the same time. The medium tries to bring through spirits for as many people as they can during the time allotted. Not everyone is guaranteed a reading. These group readings are like the old Victorian séances, except that today the lights are on, and there are no theatrics.

Demonstrations – Demonstrations or “Dems” are large group readings where they may be hundreds or thousands of people in the room. Demonstrations are conducted by one or more mediums. The medium attempts to bring through spirits for as many audience members as possible during the allotted time.

Astrology – these readings reflect where the planets were in the sky on the day someone was born and how the movement of the planets today affects them now. Astrology readings are good for timing, relocation and compatibility among many other things. These readings can tell you which aspect of your life is most impacted by the planetary lineup today and for the year ahead.

Palmistry – Palmistry, like astrology is one of the most scientific types of psychic readings. Everyone’s hands have the same significant lines such as the headline, heartline and lifeline. These lines are deeply carved into the hand, or frayed and broken. It is significant if there is an absence of one of these major lines. You can read someone’s health in their hands

Numerology – Numerology is based on numbers having a mystical meaning. Your birthdate, your birth name and the name you use today, all translate into a specific unique number that describes your personality and your life purpose.

 

 

 

Five Ground Rules For Getting a Good Psychic Reading in Boston

 

Here are some basic ground rules for getting a good psychic reading in Boston. 

1) Don’t drink or get high before your reading. It’s hard to do this if you’re in a group setting but alcohol and pot distort your energy and muddies the information. Wait until after your reading for a cocktail. If you’re at a party, wait until after you’ve had your reading before your imbibe.

2) It’s okay to be a skeptic but if you act like you know everything about how it works, you can ruin your reading.(Even psychics don’t know how it works)  Playing “stump the psychic” usually just wastes time during your session. Hopefully, you’ve already researched your psychic and know that they’re honest. Don’t tell the psychic too much. Believe it or not, a lot of psychics are skeptics too, even though they do this for a living.

3) Do not allow yourself to become dependent on a psychic. You have to make your decisions. Only you can live your life. Limit how often you go in for a reading unless you’re in crisis or have a practical need for them such as using intuition for business.

4) You are always 100% responsible for whatever decisions you make after your reading. If you’re using information from your reading to make a decision, you need to use the psychic information from your reading as another point of reference. 

5) You have free will. The future is dynamic. I always tell people the future is a moving target. The decisions you make every day are either subtly or dramatically changing your future. Some things are fated and some things you have no control over. There are a lot of things you do have control over so focus on where you have power over your future.

Hope and Peace in Response to Terrorism

 

Two weeks ago a Russian airliner exploded in the sky killing everyone on board. Over the weekend, gunmen and suicide bombers killed 129 and injured more than 375 people in Paris. Both incidents were well planned, coordinated acts of terrorism conducted by ISIS. As the world seems to be at war and under siege with these senseless violent acts by Islamic extremists, and the coalition’s response, what can you do as an individual citizen besides watching it play out on TV?

You CAN begin with the power of prayer. If there was ever a time to talk your talk and walk your walk, it’s now. It’s not the time to throw your hands up in despair and lose hope for peace. Instead of fear and panic, send love and healing to the families who’ve lost loved ones, those injured, countries who’ve lost citizens, and to heads of state as they respond to these vicious attacks.

You CAN meditate on peace and send powerful healing energy to all violent extremists to stop these unspeakable acts of terrorism. Ask the Universe to show you how you can be of service. Instead of angry thoughts – send out loving thoughts. If you believe that, “Thoughts are things,” send your prayers and visual images of positive solutions for a peaceful world as your response. Do not to just sit on the sidelines. Get involved in a spiritual and energetic way.

Love and light,

5 Things To Know To Find The Right Psychic In Boston For You

The psychic industry has come a long way since the old stereotypical fortune-telling days. Today, seers have access to thousands of serious metaphysical books, and professional psychic schools where they can earn advanced degrees in mediumship and intuition. Psychics today have a wide range of backgrounds and training.. Here are five things to know and ways to find the right psychic in Boston for you.

1) Know a little bit about the different specialties. There are two main categories. Psychic mediums talk to dead. Psychic intuitives provide insights into situations you’re facing or decisions you need to make. Most psychic mediums can do both psychic readings (spiritual counseling) and mediumship. All mediums are psychics, but not all psychics are mediums.

2) If you’re going to a medium, you’re primarily going to hear from the Other Side. Mediumship readings are especially helpful if you are grieving and connecting with your loved one in spirit might help bring you closure and peace. There is no guarantee, however, which spirits will show up. Mediumship sessions are meant to be healing.

3) Know why you want to get a reading today. Is this your first time and you’re just curious? You should be able to have a great experience with either type of psychic but if you go to a psychic intuitive that doesn’t talk to the dead, you’ll be disappointed if that’s what you’re expecting. If you’re only going for entertainment purposes unless it’s a party venue, or demonstration, you’re taking a chance. Psychic mediums and psychic intuitives take their work very seriously especially in one on one sessions and small group settings.

4) In mediumship readings, you can’t interact with the spirit and ask questions. In psychic intuitive sessions, most of the time, you do get to ask questions. Information from a mediumship reading comes from a spirit. Information in a psychic intuitive reading comes from the energy field of the person being read and the earth plane. Most readers will not combine the two different types of readings in one session because they require different skills. 

5) Most of the time you’ll pay a higher price for a session with an experienced and well-trained psychic. It may sound logical that you have to pay more, but you’d be surprised how many people think that psychic ability is a magical power that doesn’t require experience and training. It takes time for a psychic to understand how their gifts work. The more training a psychic has had, and the more time they’ve invested in giving readings, the better they are.

If you’ve picked out a psychic or received a referral and still aren’t sure if you have the right psychic for you – read through the testimonials on his or her website. The testimonials can help you clarify the type of reading you can expect to get with that psychic. You can also call and ask them further questions after you’ve read through what is available about them on their website.
