I am a great believer in Karma, but just what is it? Karma comes from the Sanskrit and ancient Indian Language with the underlying principal that every deed in our lives will affect our future life. For example, if we treat others badly during our lifetime we will have negative experiences later on in that lifetime or in future lifetimes. Likewise, if we treat others well we will be rewarded by positive experiences.

Today I am blogging about inexperienced Psychics/Mediums. There are many psychics/mediums around who give the profession a bad name, trouble is a bad reading from a bad or inexperienced psychic/medium tars the rest of us with the same brush.

When embarking on this pathway each of us has personal responsibility, irrespective of what we feel is correct. How do we know if the messages we relay are correct, have we heard and interpreted them correctly? Many psychics/mediums use clairsentience (sensing feelings) to pick up messages from spirit, this has to be put into words, this can change the meaning of the message entirely by the wrong choice of words. It is important we do not influence who we are reading for, nor must we alarm or cause distress, we must be sensitive to the recipient and be tactful. If you are not sure of what you are picking up, don’t say it either. We must also bear in mind nothing is written in stone and subject to change and its possible we could be wrong, the professional Psychic/ Medium will never foretell, death, nor illness, nor diagnose, for they are not doctors for this very reason.

Many so called psychics/mediums are unable to distinguish what energy level they are working with, psychic energy resonates at a lower level than spiritual energy, the two are entirely different. spiritual energy is how Mediums communicate with spirit, whereas psychic energy deals with the energy from the aura. The inexperienced medium will not validate the source of the message, this is extremely important for they could be relaying messages from lower elementals or from the dark side. When delivering messages from spirit it is essential we identify who the spirit is by gaining survival evidence i.e. evidence only the recipient would know, the character of the disincarnate, what they died from and names, dates as much information as you can to prove you are talking to someone the recipient recognises. Of course psychic/mediums do work with guides and the experienced will recognise when the message is coming from an established guide and when it is not. A reading should be constructed in such away, it answers the recipients queries and leaves the recipient calm. If a loved one in spirit has a message he/she will come forward, you cannot summon spirit or a specific spirit. The use of Ouija boards, planchettes is not recommended as these attract lower elementals and the dark side

It is also important psychic/mediums have counselling experience, and I don’t mean a few days training either but a proper professional course recognised by a professional authority, this is valuable as when relaying messages it is possible all manner of feelings in the recipient will emerge. Supposing the recipient was sexually abused as a child, would you know how to deal with this? I cannot stress enough do not read for anyone unless you know how to tactfully and sensitively deal with delicate situations. You cannot become a professional psychic/medium overnight, it takes time to gain experience and develop, sometimes years, of sitting in a development circle with an experienced medium, who’s valuable experience will guide you safely. Psychic intuition courses claiming to develop you over a period of 4 classes are to be avoided as you cannot gain the experience needed for this work in so short a time, especially to be avoided if large  course fees are needed, charlatan comes to mind when I hear of this. If you truly want to foliow this pathway, it takes dedication and time, it should not involve money. The spiritualist church or the National Union of Spiritualists can direct you to a development circle near you, where the only money involved is for refreshments at the end of the meeting

Too many inexperienced psychics/mediums do more harm than good, a good reading is when the recipient leaves you feeling better for seeing you and is uplifted. All too often I have heard of inexperienced psychics/mediums causing worry and anxiety that is very unprofessional and this causes the public to take a dim view of us in general, it only takes a few bad apples to destroy the reputation some of us who are striving towards to achieve professionalism.

I am often asked various questions pertaining to the spirit world and various aspects of the psychic, here are some of them: I will in time feature more questions and answers as this webpage evolves

Q. Is a psychic or medium a fortune teller?
A. It may surprise you to know psychics and mediums are not fortune tellers
Q. Is it possible to forecast the future?
A.Well not 100% and this is because of free will.
Q. What is free will?
A. Free will is YOUR right to decide what you want to do about a situation, it is a choice
Q. How does free will affect a situation?
A. Well before we incarnate as Spirit in a human body, we decide on what experiences and challenges that will benefit our spiritual growth. However we are given the choice (free will) as to whether we go through with the experience or challenge. In effect we are allowed to change or mind.
Q. So are you saying we all know what lies before us?
A. Well in a way we all do. Remember we are 'Spirit' in a human body and your spirit does retain a memory but it is deep in our subconscious. This memory is retained deeply for a reason to help us fulfill our experiences and challenges we ourselves chose. However it is also at this deep level so we are not so aware. If you knew what lay before you would you go through with it? Probably not but we still retain this memory deeply and this reflects in our Aura.
Q. So what is the Aura?
A.The aura is The Aura is an electromagnetic field that surrounds living bodies, this includes people, animals, plants and crystals and is composed of several layers that are constantly moving. The Aura links us to whats known as Universal energy i.e. that is all the knowledge in the Universe past, present and future. It is on this aura that psychics are able to tap into and access your past, whats going on in the present and the possible future and I say possible specifically if your goal or desire is dependent on other people, for remember every person involved in a situation has free will.
