Mediumship is the practice of purportedly mediating communication between spirits of the dead and living human beings. Practitioners are known as “mediums.”There are different types of mediumship, including spirit channelling and ouija.
Humans have been fascinated with contacting the dead since the beginning of human existence. Cave paintings by indigenous Australians date back 28,000 years, some depicting skulls, bones, spirits and the afterlife. Other cave paintings in Indonesia date back a further 10,000 years. Mediumship gained popularity during the nineteenth century.
You may have heard the word “medium” used during discussions about psychic abilities, particularly those involving communication with the spirit world. Traditionally, a medium is someone who speaks, in one way or another, to the dead.
Mediums obtain messages from the spirit world in different ways. Some receive intuitive information, in which images and words appear as mental impressions that are then relayed along to the living. In other cases, a medium may hear actual auditory messages or see actual images of these messages. Many people who do spirit communication regularly find that the dead can be quite a chatty bunch sometimes. If they’ve got something to tell you, they’re going to make sure you get told. What you choose to do with the information is up to you, but a lot of mediums, it can feel like they’ve got someone’s dead granny screaming in their ears, and if they don’t pass that message along to you, she’s not going to shut up.
During a seance, a medium may be the method by which messages are relayed from the spirit world to the guests at the event. While some mediums may enter into a trance-like state, others may be completely awake and fully lucid while passing messages along. Sometimes, particularly if there are a group of fairly magically-aware people at the table, messages might be coming through all over the place, in no particular order. It can feel like the spirit world version of a chat room, with everyone just being bombarded right and left with messages from the other side.

  • I do not consider myself a medium. However, since my childhood I have seen and felt quite a few spirits. I didn’t do anything to initiate communication; but that did not stop them! I would awake at night feeling cold and there would be a spirit staring at me in the doorway. Another vivid memory I have is… there was a circle moving counter clock wise of several spirits that got smaller for everyone to be seen. As the circle went around, each one would get larger when it was their turn to stand out. It did not feel evil but I wished it went away! The color was always a translucent white with some blue. I could see if they were male, female, in a wheelchair, ect. I also hear my name called “ quite loudly” at various times. Now, I feel special and selected that I was chosen for them to share. I don’t have any interest in ever exploring my gifts to use as a profession, but I accept it more as I age, and notice their presence when I am in a quiet and calm space.
