He ever wondered: Are Mediums Real?
Maybe you’ve seen Theresa Caputo on TV and wondered if mediumship is real or just a bunch of “woo-woo” smoke … is someone feeding your information? Or is there a secret microphone hidden in his hair!
After all, how in the world can she and other mediums know so much about dead people?
Is spiritual mediumship a big scam? Or do real mediums? What is true when it comes to spiritual communication?
Are Mediums Real?
I admit it. A long time ago, I thought psychics and mediums were a bunch of woo-woo swindlers.
It started when I was a kid and my mom would take me along when I had her tarot-reading letters. There was always a lot of drama … and crystal balls and sanctuaries to go along with it!
For me, it was super weird.
But then I had a psychic experience of my own. And that’s when I realized I was wrong … and that psychics and mediums are very real.
Skeptic to Psychic Medium
I’ve always been a left-brain, analytical girl, and I thought there had to be some science behind this. After all, if I could start having intuitive experiences, then anyone could!
So, in 2000, I signed up for a psychic development class. I was ready to get an idea of the psychic world!
That class changed my life! I was fascinated by the world of spiritual communication and psychic ability. Plus, it was the beginning of my work trip as a professional psychic … and the creation of two metaphysical websites!
Are the mediums real? Yes! (And we’ll talk about why they’re real in a minute.)
Yeah, but aren’t some mediums fake?
Unfortunately, yes. As with anything, there are people who claim that they are mediums that are not. And, if you’ve never had a reading with a real psychic medium before, you may not recognize the signs of a scam.
Here are some quick data on real mediums:
- The real mediums are warm, positive and edifying
They never give you scary information like:
- your loved one in heaven is unhappy
- your loved one is trapped in some limbo beyond
2. The real medium transmits messages of the spirit
You can count on legitimate means to give you a message from your loved one in heaven.
Because they test the Beyond and the transmission of the messages of spirit are major mediums ” works.Some messages are humorous. And others are comforting, or provide comfort and closure.
On the other hand, it is easy to detect false mediums. (Learn how to detect a false psychic in 2 flat seconds.)
If there are no tricks, how do the medium know so much?
Legitimate means are accurate. You may know your grandmother’s name or your special chicken soup recipe!
This precision can lead people to believe that they use Google tricks or information before a reading. But I can tell you … as a medium and a busy mother to myself, real mediums do not have the time or desire to “cheat.”
In fact, the more a medium knows about someone before a reading, the harder it is to do the reading. Wild, right?!
Then why is this?
Well, psychic ability works through the right side of our brain. But when a medium knows things about a person before a reading, the left side of the brain (the analytical side) gets in the way.
You’re familiar with the right and left sides of your brain.…
The right side is super creative. Loves music and art! And the left (analytical side) makes sure your funds are in order before you get to that shoe sale!
The mediums feel the spirit with their gifts. And the best way to do that is to go” blind, ” without knowing anything about your client or spirit.
How Does Mediumship Work?
Mediums are like radios
Energy vibrates at different frequencies. Positive energy (like a spirit) has a high vibration, and negative energy has a lower vibration.
The real means have developed their gifts so that they can feel the energy of high environment. (Just like the way your TV tunes the channel you choose.)
For clarity: the mediums feel the energy, like the energy of the spiritual world.
Are you curious how the medium elevates their environment? It is easy, and you can too!
It is not dramatic
The mediums detect information in a soft and subtle way. It’s beautiful and powerful, but not as dramatic as what’s shown in Hollywood!
True mediumship is less about lightening bolts or being stopped on the road by an ethereal Messenger. It is more of a feeling that changes suddenly, or of knowing a spirit without ever knowing it.
Mediums Are Different to Psychics
What’s a Psychic?
Have you ever heard anyone talk about auras?
An aura is the energy field that surrounds all living things, including plants and animals. (You can also learn to see your own aura.)
Psychics can feel or feel this energy.
A psychic may be able to:
- Feel the physical or emotional of a person (clairsentience)
- See things in their minds eye (clairvoyance)
- Receive messages with your audience psychic clairaudience)
What’s a Medium?
The medium can sense energy, like psychics, but the medium can also do one thing psychics can’t.…
You can feel energy with an even greater vibration.
As I said before, spiritual energy vibrates at a super high frequency. (That’s because they don’t have a dense physical body drowning.)
In other words, the medium can communicate with the dead.
Remember: all mediums are psychic but not all psychics are mediums.
How Mediumship Started?
Many people credit Sisters Fox, Kate and Margaret as pioneers who put mediumship on the map. In 1848, at the age of 12 and 15, it was said that the sisters communicated with a man who was killed and buried in his house.
Legend has it that the spirit of man would respond by making tapping sounds when Kate spoke to him.
Is The Legend of the Fox sisters true? No one knows for sure. But the question “are real mediums” goes back hundreds of years!
And, like many stories transmitted over the centuries, I’m sure there have been ornaments and inaccuracies in the more than 150 years since Kate and Mary were alive.
But I’m also sure people were communicating with the spirits long before the Fox sisters!
In an interesting note, it is said that the “rapping” experienced by Kate is a form of physical mediumship that includes other phenomena such as:
- direct voice (when a spirit speaks through a medium)
- ectoplasm (yes, as in Ghost Busters)
Yes, the Mediums Are Real
I can guarantee you this: legitimate means are not about blowing smoke. We’re just normal people who can communicate with the dead.
I’m sure my neighbors think I’m in the House baking cookies … and not helping people all over the world through phone readings. 🙂
And although most mediums consider themselves spiritual and heart-centered, wanting to help people feel better, that doesn’t mean that we don’t have bad days and even use bad words sometimes.
The famous medium Maureen Hancock wrote a book called The Medium Next Door. If you are interested in learning more about the life of a real medium, ask for a copy of Maureen’s book.
Since I am a professional psychic medium, I am a believer in this reality. But as I said before, I used to be a sworn skeptic, so I get where non-believers come from.
For now, let us address some common problems about mediumship. They’ll keep you open – minded by asking the question are they real medums?
Some people believe that if a medium cannot quickly give all the details about a spirit that she is a fraud. And that’s not so true.
True mediumship is about:
- Deliver messages from your loved ones in heaven to those on the Earth plane
- Give voice to those in spirit
- Proving there’s a future life
The medium closes the gap between the living and the dead. It’s not about telling people how many fingers they’re holding behind their back. (For more information, read the 6 myths about psychics)
More Reasons for the Skepticism
Some people make fun of the medium because they’ve been victims of a fake psychic scam. I’ve heard some of these stories, and I’ve broken my heart. To avoid scams, take the time to learn how to choose a true psychic.
For others, their religion sets standards for mediums or psychics. While I can respect this, I also believe that we should be free to do our own research.
Others may have said something crazy like, ” you were Genghis Khan in a previous life.Really?
No one can prove you were Genghis Khan in a previous life, but a real medium will tell you things you can confirm. For example, your grandfather used to play guitar in a band … or that your father put you up with your favorite pink stuffed bunny every night.
When people ask me if they’re real medium, I say yes!
Scientific Proof of Mediumship
Even with minds and Hearts opening up, there are still a lot of people who believe that the medium is not real.
So, if you want to know about the mediums in general or you want to develop a gift within yourself, why not do some research?
You can start with these two organizations that are working to demonstrate the existence of mediumship.:
- Family Forever Foundation
- Windbridge Research Centre
Keeping an Open Mind
There was a time in the recent past where people would think you were crazy if you answered ” yes ” to the question, are the mediums real?
But now there is a more open attitude thanks to medium such as James Van Praagh, John Edward and Theresa Caputo. These respected spiritual medium stand out in books and television.
Have you ever seen the television show Ghost Whisperer? Of course, the show is dramatized for entertainment, but some episodes are realistic.
