Tips To Understanding Readings By Psychic Mediums

By Edward Baker

The ability to communicate with persons who have passed away is a gift bestowed upon a few unique individuals. Through several different avenues, these people are able to connect with the energies of the spirit realm and receive messages that are intended for the living. Psychic mediums serve as a conduit between those who have died and the ones they left behind.

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.

One of the ways contact may be established is through sight, though not every spirit will choose to be seen. For some, they might "see" through their mind's eye - like a vision inside their head that is using gestures and such. Others may see a physical manifestation of their contacts, usually with an ethereal or ghostly appearance.

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.

Another means of communicating with the spirits is through telepathy. When a spirit uses this approach, they generally transmit brief pictures into the mind of the medium in an effort to form a comprehensive idea. The problem is that this sometimes gets confusing because the individual may have trouble interpreting certain messages such as one indicating a woman by the name of Sandy by showing a female and a beach.

An intuitive may also be empathetic and capable of experiencing sensations of either a physical or emotional nature, which are related to the spirit's message. As an example, a tightening of the lungs may mean the individual suffered breathing issues in life, or a headache might symbolize trauma to the head. Very often, communication of this type is combined with another in order to add further clarity.

There are other means of spirit connection, such as trances and automatic writing, through which a medium may receive the communications from the beyond. No two gifted individuals will ever have exactly the same experiences and each will deal with their abilities in their own unique way. They will do their best to convey any messages received, though those interested in readings need to understand that it is not always clear or easy to do.
