PREPARING IS SELF PRESERVING… TAKE TIME!
In January, I went and did a reading for a friend. We are both mediums. The reading went well and afterwards we were sitting and talking when she spoke of a hesitation she was experiencing before working. Instead of being consumed with an enthusiasm to show off her talent and shine… that confident glow had to share the same space with that voice shouting, “I am not ready yet!” You don’t have to be a medium to relate to this.
The other evening I hosted a student medium circle at Circle of Love Spiritualist Community. The affair turned out great! However, during the back stage, chit-chat the following Sunday, It came out that many of us, including me (due to a flu), felt like we could have taken more time out for spiritual preparation.
We mediums walk between two world. Not all the time does it feel like it because given the fact that we are in the world, we will always be called, pulled and seduced by secular aspects of the world. I have told many, “there are times when I feel about as psychic as a rock.” It is easy to forget that we have to nurture our spiritual bodies and minds too. Never underestimate how much spiritual juice it takes to build strong bridges of communication between heaven and earth. You have to set aside appropriate time to sit in the power in order to fuel your mission or to accomplish proper spiritual interfacing. If you were going to take a road trip, wouldn’t it be foolish to just get in your car and drive without checking your fluids, tires, fuel, etc…?
Mavis Pittilla, one of my favorite UK spiritualist mediums and author of, Mavis – With Spirit, was having a discussion about spirituality and how mediumship has changed with James Van Praagh, one of America’s well known mediums. During this talk, Mavis expresses in her own words how mediums aren’t sitting in the power enough.
