In daily conversation we use the word media to describe how we get our news. A spiritual medium is also a means through which information travels, but in this case they are a conduit for communication the spirit to the physical world. There are many ways of communicating with the spirit world and a medium can be using one or many of them when they receive their messages. A friend of mine, who is training to be a medium, uses her clairsentience and so she will often say “I am feeling…” Others use their clairvoyance and will say “I am seeing…”; their clairaudience. “I am hearing…” or they will “just know”. All of these abilities can be considered mediumship.
What is the difference between a medium and a channel?
A medium is a messenger, an intermediary, like the postman. Some examples of famous mediums are James van Pragh, Betty Shine and Sylvia Brown. A channel leaves their physical body completely and allows another entity to take possession. Examples of famous channels are J.Z Knight, who channels Ramtha, Jane Roberts, who channeled Seth and Edgar Casey, the sleeping prophet, who was not present in his body when he gave his readings.
Some mediums do share energy with the spirit without giving up complete control of their body. So they will feel the physical and emotional aspects of the person, usually as they were just prior to them passing over. The safest connection is via the heart chakra because that allows a connection based on empathy.
Am I a medium?
Everyone is able to communicate with spirit and everyone is a trance medium. Trance mediumship is simply the ability of spirit to enter the physical body. You are spirit you are not your body. You use your trance mediumship every day to bring your consciousness into the physical world. Spirit enters the body through the seventh chakra at the crown of the head and this is where your spiritual information on trance mediumship is located.
Learning to consciously use your trance mediumship is an important step in your spiritual evolution. How you use it is your choice. However, I recommend using it to bring in your own consciousness so that you can be in charge of your body and your life.
