First, I’d like to say a HUGE thank you to my dear friend Rosemarie Monaco for the two wonderful articles she contributed last week while I was away.
I took the week off from work to attend a 5 day intensive advanced mediumship course that ran from 9 am to 7 pm.
It was exhausting and, Yes, I said mediumship.
I know I haven’t spoken much, actually ever, on the blog about the depth of my intuitive consulting practice – so now you know, and here it is.
To be very honest I’d been debating about whether I should address this in the blog at all –
Many “intuitives,” which is what we call ourselves today, use that term because the words Psychic and Medium have negative connotations. You hear the word psychic and you think of someone dressed in far out clothing with their hands on a crystal ball, or the word medium and you immediately see The Ghost Whisperer helping legions of supposed “earth-bound” spirits cross over.
Well, I’m here to let you know these are stereo-types and notions as full of holes as Swiss cheese. I’m neither kooky nor far-out. The mediums I associate with are highly credible professionals – and not Woo-Woo types at all. (I’m not saying there aren’t flakes, fakes, frauds and cons out there – ’cause there are – but you can learn to discern the difference).
The 70 people I spent my week getting to know were educated and from the fields of business, finance, real estate, insurance, retired military, medicine, hospice care, clergy, and education – and I’m sure I left out a few. Nobody wore any weird clothing or acted like they were in a Harry Potter movie. They traveled from all over the world to attend this course in the NY area taught by faculty from the Arthur Findlay College in the UK.
Take me for example – I’ve got a 25 year background in private banking, personal financial planning and real estate finance. I wear suits to my office, carry a brief-case, and in the past took the train to the World Trade Center to walk to my office headquarters on Water Street in the financial district. Does that sound Woo-Woo to you?
Some top bloggers might say I should tread lightly regarding articles addressing this mediumship, but after the week I had at this extensive course I realized that this is who I am – and I have to write about what I know. I could do a bang-up job on a personal finance blog – but that’s not where my heart is.
I’ve been intuitive and psychic since I was a kid and it’s grown into mediumship – which is the natural progression for this type of ability. I never expected nor desired to become a medium. It just started happening little by little on its own during readings 10 years ago. I’ve just begun taking it seriously 3 years ago – which is why I’m now hard at work taking development courses.
For anyone who is not aware of what a medium does – here it is in a nutshell: We are the voices for those who no longer have a voice in this plane of existence. Our goal is to show that our consciousness survives the transition we call Death and that the love we felt for and from those we’ve “lost” lives on too. It’s not scary or anything like you see on television or the movies. The point of knowing our consciousness survives is to know that our physical life is only the first part of our vast education as a sentient being, and that what we do and how we live our lives here on the Earth Plane matters.
So, in the weeks to come I’ll be writing more in-depth posts about Mediumship. I’ll also continue to write about changing your thinking, spiritual growth, and intuition and psychic abilities and how to develop yours.
I’d like to know if you’re interested in learning more about mediumship?
Would you like to know how “it” works?
Please leave me a comment and if you are interested tell me what you’d like to learn about mediumship, and the other topics I cover in Powered by Intuition.
Any burning questions? Let me know what they are too.
If you’re not interested – let me know that too!
