Where do psychic or spirit mediums get their power or abilities to communicate with spirits of the dead?
Spirit mediums date back to early human history. One of the most well known early examples of communicating with the dead is recounted in the Holy Bible: The tale of the Medium of Endor (also referred to as the Witch of Endor).
In the book of 1 Samuel 28, Saul, King of Israel, sends his servants in search of a medium (the Medium of Endor or, as referred to in Bible text, a woman “that hath a familiar spirit”) in order to contact and seek counsel from the spirit of the slain prophet, Samuel. In this story, Samuel comes forth (Whether it be by physical manifestation or by way of communicating through the medium wasn’t clear in text) and informs Saul that he is doomed in his upcoming war with the Philistines. The next day, King Saul dies in battle along with his sons.
Today, people seek the services of spirit mediums to communicate with their deceased loved ones, seek counsel from spirits of the dead and angelic entities, confirm possible hauntings, help direct spirits in their “travel” to the “other side”, and, in some cases, to cease spiritual in habitation of a certain dwelling or area.
Being psychic means you get ONLY the information you NEED from Spirit, as you need it. Information that you need = information that helps you or someone else on their path; information that’s relevant and helpful.
It’s not a party trick.
Some psychics may have experienced something different, but for me there really NEEDS to be a reason for me to get the information I get. When I meet people, I can often tell a lot about who they are and what they’re like. I can sometimes hear thoughts. But I never really get a whole lot of information that I don’t NEED and I definitely don’t get to invade anyone’s privacy or get a peek into something I’m not meant to.
On the other hand, reading for someone is easy because the client gives me permission to read for them and there is certain information that they need to have.
But I can’t tell how many fingers someone is holding behind their back. I can’t usually tell you what you had for dinner. I can’t tell you the lottery numbers if you don’t need to win the lottery right now (and most of us really don’t!)
So, when it comes to psychic information, you get the information you’re meant to get. And what you think you need to know is not necessarily what you need to know.
Another interesting lesson that I have been learning in the last few years or so is that being psychic doesn’t mean you can sail through life knowing anything you want to. Sometimes you fall flat on your face.
No psychic is going to be 100% correct all the time, but I do spend my days reading for people and telling them information they tell me is correct, the vast majority of the time. Out of the over 10,000 people I’ve read for, I’ve only had a handful tell me they really didn’t resonate with what I told them.
