When people think of Mediums they usually visualise people wearing long flowing gowns in a séance, sat round a table holding hands with the people they are doing a reading for. Mediums are just ordinary people who usually have everyday jobs and families. A Medium is just a link between this world and the spirit world, and everybody alive has Mediumistic capabilities of some kind.
Canadian medium George T. LeBlanc defines mediumship as follows: It is the process of communication with the so called dead or as we say Spirit. Raising our earthly vibrations to match those of spirit so communication is possibe and if need be, using tools as a guide to help us along. Therefor a medium is a person who is a go between, an intermediary, a link between the living and the so called dead or Spirit. A medium is a person who can receive and give messages from Spirit to help guide those in need., be it from one of our Guides, from a loved one, or a friend who has made the transition to Spirit World.
Anyone (including you) can become a medium with the proper taining and understanding as to what is happening and how to interpret the messages they are getting.
First Spiritual Temple (founded in 1883) defines mediumship or channeling as the process whereby a human instrument, known as a MEDIUM or CHANNEL, is used by one or more discarnate, spirit personalities for the purpose of:
- Presenting information, verifiable or otherwise.
- Causing so-called paranormal activities to occur.
- Channeling forth certain types of energies.
- Manifesting themselves for objective examination and/or identification.
Mediumship is the term used to describe a form of communication with spirits. It is a practice in religious beliefs such as Spiritualism, Spiritism, Espiritismo, Candomblé, Louisiana Voodoo, Shambala and Umbanda. While the Western movements of Spiritualism and Spiritism account for most Western news-media exposure, most African and African-diasporic traditions include mediumship as a central focus of religious practice.
