Giving Mediumship Readings
To me, there are no sweeter words than:
- I love you
- Would you like some coffee?
Let’s take coffee out of the equation and focus on the words I love you — specifically, what these words mean when you are giving someone a mediumship reading.
The most important part of any mediumship reading is the message.
Of course, when communicating with spirit, evidence is crucial too. By evidence, I mean things like:
- Personality traits
- How someone passed away
- Hobbies they had while they were living
- Details about their life (were they married/had kids/what kind of work did they do)
- Their name or initials
- Anything that helps their loved ones know it is them
All of these things are comforting and important.
But what I see happening with a lot of beginners is that they focus so much on evidence that they forget the message.
Stop and think about it for a minute…
Why do people visit mediums?
Because they want to reconnect with their loved one in heaven, and when the mediumship reading is over, they want to feel as if they had a visit with their loved one in heaven.
That means that bringing forth the spirit’s personality, etc. is important, but you also need to pass on a meaningful message.
Getting a Meaningful Message
It’s great to pass on messages like, “I love you,” or “I’m proud of you,” but you want to tune in to spirit and get a meaningful message.
And don’t worry, it does not have to be anything secret or earth-shattering… it just has to be something that has meaning to your client.
Even a message that seems simple can hold a lot of meaning to someone else.
Here’s an example:
Years ago, my mentor and a few of her students were giving a group reading.
One mediumship student was spot on with everything he said. For example, he told one woman how her husband passed away, what he did for a living, and even the name of his pet!
It was beautiful, but here’s where it gets interesting:
When the student was done, our mentor said, “I have one thing to add. Your husband says he’s glad you are using the yellow umbrella.”
At that point, the woman burst into tears because the yellow umbrella had a lot of significance to her…
It had belonged to her husband and, now that he was gone, she brought it to and from her car every day to remind her of him.
When the reading was over, the woman thanked my mentor for the message. Then, she went on and on about how amazed she was to hear about the umbrella.
The point is, of all the information that came through (including the pet’s name), the umbrella message made her feel most connected.
So, tune in and be sure to connect your clients with a message from spirit. It will help them feel connected to their loved one on the other side, and give them comfort and healing.
