These are just some of the signs that you may have mediumship qualities - in fact, just about anyone and everyone could become a medium if they were so inclined.
You may feel as if you are different from everyone else in some way. The same, but different. I know I did, when I was growing up, and many mediums have told me that they also felt like this. I did not like mixing with people and going to late night parties. I studied hard for all my exams instead of going out and having rave ups.
You may see flashing lights sometimes.
You may see lights sparkle out of the corner of your eye.
You may see sparkling lights when you shut your eyes.
You may see sparkling lights when you are in a darkened room, maybe when you are in your bed at night.
The room may appear as if someone has turned the light back on, even though you know the room is in total darkness. The same might happen when you have your eyes closed and are in a darkened room - you still see lights or as if the light is on or the sun is shining in your face.
This is spirit trying to get in touch with you. This is spirit letting you know they are around you.
I use the word 'spirit' as a 'whole' - as 'collective consciousness' - as many like-minded, single spirits, all joining together as a whole. So I often say 'spirit', as one - and then use the term, 'they'. Spirit - they, because this is how I 'see' and interpret the spirit world. It is a 'one' a 'whole' but also 'many', all at the same time.
Many people have thought that they either were crazy or were going crazy. Believe me, you are not! I used to think I was crazy when I was growing up. I would tell people about the ghosts that I could see and the perfumes that I could smell and they would turn around and tell me I was mad. This frightened me a great deal. I did not like being 'different' and at the same time I thought everyone else could see ghosts and smell perfumes that were not there. I Began to keep quiet about these 'happenings' and this is what many mediums do as they are growing up.
Some people have even been treated for migraines because they kept seeing flashing lights.
Mediumship has been given a bad name over the years. There have been horrible and negative write-ups in the press. Programmes on T.V. that depict scary events and films that in no way do justice to mediumship.
Also the witch hunts and witch trials that have gone on over the centuries have not helped people to embrace mediumship as the beautiful, natural and healing modality that it is.
You may hear someone talking to you. This can happen in several ways. You may 'think' you hear a voice saying a few words or even a sentence. You may hear this voice out loud or in your mind's inner ear. Often this can happen when you first wake up in the morning or when you are in the shower or maybe doing some mundane job, such as washing up or ironing or gardening. There is nothing to fear. There is nothing to be afraid of. It is only a spirit person, maybe a relative or an angel, trying to communicate with you.
You may also hear your name being called and even go to a person and say, 'what do you want' only to be told they had not called you! This too can be a bit off-putting, but once again, there is nothing to fear. Spirit cannot and will not harm you in any way, shape or form.
You may see a ghost - for real, that is. Or you may think you have seen a ghost. Or you may think you have seen someone out of the corner of your eye and as you move your head to see who it is then that 'person' will either disappear or stay at your peripheral vision.
This too is very normal and nothing to be scared about. Once again, I say to you that spirits cannot harm you in any way, shape or form and they would not want to either. Spirits love to communicate with us on the earth plane. They want us to know that they are okay and doing well in Heaven. Our departed loved ones want to give us messages. Mediumship can be very rewarding and more mediums are needed as there are absolutely trillions of spirits wishing to communicate with people on the earth plain.
Another thing that often happens to me and may well happen to you is the following. Sometimes when I am out in the woods on a dull or rainy day, it is as if the sun is shining on me. I look up at the sky to see if the sun is trying to break through the clouds and I notice the dark sky and yet it still seems that the sun is shining upon me. I think this is amazing! The same thing happens when I am at home and it may be a dull day outside and yet I have sunshine beaming down upon me. As I mentioned earlier, when I am in a dark room or have my eyes closed it is as if the sun is shining brightly in my eyes.
These are just a few ways in which you may be given signs that you have mediumship qualities.
If you are interested in developing your mediumship then do look out for my course coming out shortly. (June 2017)
