QUESTION TO MEDIUM CHRISTINE MORGAN:
Why are there so many differences in quality levels in mediumship?Is
it because some mediums are untrained or under-developed
or less gifted?"
different standards of mediumship today exist, simply because
of the variation in methods and personal standards of those
teaching it. As with many skills it can be developed,
but not everyone is an expert or brilliant at it, nor is
every medium a teacher. The subject, should be researched
and examined as much as possible by those wishing to develop,
so they at least have an understanding of what their development
Different teachers use different methods, but the rule
of thumb is that one must always develop the Power of the
Spirit, through sitting for this to build and develop within
a group or by oneself.
If sitting by oneself, eventually a group will be needed
for expansion and practice.
The Power of the Spirit is totally separate from meditation,
which is just a disciplined train of thought. One can meditate
to relax, balance oneself and contemplate, but to build
the Power of the Spirit takes time.
Some people develop gradually as their abilities unfold,
and they should be guided by an experienced teacher and
medium themselves, who knows the difference in energies,
and can sense the presence of spirit. The teacher should
always be able to link into the contact the student has
Many only develop a psychic level and psychometrise the
spirit, without flowing with true communication. Many facts
can be pulled like this, but the essence and presence of
the spirit is missing.
One also needs to know that it should be the spirit people
who decide what abilities to unfold, not us; we should work
alongside them without expectation or demand, and be grateful
that we have this wonderful communication.
I believe true mediums are born, but many can develop abilities
to varying degrees.
One should always wait to be invited by their teacher or
leader to work publicly after their standards have reached
a certain level. This must be consistent and evidential.
Many teachers only take their students to certain levels,
and it is then up to the student to work upon their spiritual
unfoldment as well as any abilities.This sometimes means
changing teachers etc.
Much misunderstood information and many uneducated people
are out there, and one must always be aware of the subtle
differences between psychic and spirit communication.
The quality of true mediumship has declined today, because
people are demonstrating before they are ready, and many
will only stay at a certain level if they are not open to
change, be flexible and prepared to give to the spirits
rather than always having an expectation of them.
This is why we have a lot of psychics working and calling
themselves mediums, when actually they are not mediums.
True spirit communication is a majestic union between the
two worlds, and should always be treated as such.
You do not need to use strange methods, protect or ground
yourself from the spirit world, to achieve development,
for it is much more simple than we realise. We are the ones
that complicate it. If working with true intent then the
spirit will always know this. Never have I met a true medium
that needs to protect or ground himself from the spirit
It is a world of thought, and one only needs to have good
intentions and a disciplined mind to keep the balance, which
is important. Grounding is simply switching the mind into
something material, after the work is finished.
I believe that one is always a student and when one thinks
they have gone beyond learning they should stop development.
Another factor is we have allowed poor standards to become
the norm in some way, so as ambassadors for the spirit world
we should always aim to reach the very best with our abilities
in any area of mediumship, and this applies to those who
are teaching too.
Always be open to change, but always follow the true flow
of the spirit within you and that of the spirit world and
you will always then be upon the right path.
Always be of the right intention to serve the spirit, not
for self gratification and you will become the true medium.
The responsibility lies with us to keep the standards at
an acceptable level and educate those who wish to understand
about the after life and the intelligence that it is.
