Tips To Understanding Readings By Psychic Mediums

By Edward Baker

A few very special individuals have the gift of being able to communicate with spirits. Though the methods by which they are capable of doing so, they can tap into the life force energies of living people in order to receive messages from the deceased connected to them. Psychic mediums are human conduits between the spirit world and the corporeal one.

The way a medium conducts a reading is going to vary from the styles of their colleagues, and every session is unique. Likewise, the spirits communicate with each intuitive in an equally singular way. While some intuitives are only capable of receiving messages through one of many possible avenues, there are those who make the connection on multiple levels at once or at different times.

Anyone attending a reading should be very aware that the activity of the session is not controlled by the medium. They can open themselves up receptively, but who comes through, how long they stay, and what information they are willing to share is completely reliant on the spirits alone. When a spirit does choose to make contact, they will find a manner through which they can make the clearest connection to the intuitive.

Among the many forms of communication, is the gift of sight, though this is something some spirits will not be comfortable with. An intuitive might be able to view physical manifestations, though these typically have an ethereal appearance of sorts. They may alternatively "see" a spirit through the mind's eye - meaning that the vision is inside their head.

Another way in which one might receive messages from the spirits is through auditory means. The medium could either hear them as thoughts inside their mind, or as external input like normal conversation. Unfortunately, a lot of spirits have trouble with this method and the words come through sounding like a sketchy radio signal or in short phrases that will need to be interpreted to make sense.

Telepathy is another form of spirit communication. In this method, they can take pictures from the individual's mind, or flashes of faces, events, or items, to try and create a message the medium can interpret. The downside is that this is frequently difficult and confusing as the symbolism is not always clear, as in a female on the beach could indicate a need to communicate to someone named Sandy.

Those who are empathetic may also experience emotional or physical sensations that are indicative of the thought or feelings the spirit is wishing to convey. For instance, making the intuitive's head hurt could mean brain trauma, and tightness in the chest could mean heart or breathing issues in life. This is frequently combined with other means of communication in an attempt to clarify the message.

A medium might also receive communications from beyond through other means such as automatic writing and trances. Each person with the ability to communicate with the departed will experience the connections differently and each will have their own unique means of dealing with their gifts. Although an intuitive will do all they can to effectively convey spirit messages, individuals attending the reading should be aware that this is not always a simple matter.
