I have been a medium and healer myself for quite a few years now and I really do love my work. The best thing in my work is that I am able to assist and guide people with my psychic abilities and my spiritual knowledge. It is really rewarding to see how peoples lives have changed after a Reading or a Healing Session.
Not one day is the same and so are not any of my clients are the same, they come to me with different concerns, issues and problems. Unfortunately I also hear again and again about other people working in the psychic/medium field and they do more harm than good. This gives the work of a genuine medium/psychic or healer a really bad name and degrades our honest and hard work to a very low level.
I do believe the problem in the work as a medium/psychic is that there are no standards as such which qualify you as a good or bad medium/psychic. Everyone can call themselves a medium or psychic without even having enough experience, qualifications or done the work on themselves.
Over the years I was lucky enough to work with and learn from some very great mediums. People who have been in the field for many years and also who are working to a very high standard. I have seen them working on platform and also in One-to-One Sessions as well as their courses and workshops when I was their translator. During those times I did learn a lot about what it means to be a good medium/psychic and a lot about myself. I also had a lot of readings from all sorts of mediums/psychics some of them are very well-known and some of the readings were really disappointing and a total waste of time and money.
If I had known what I know now, it would have saved me a lot of bad advice, a lot of time as well as a lot of money.
Based on my personal years of experience working as medium/psychic and healer I created this guide for you. It will highlight a few points that you should ask yourself before looking for a medium or psychic. Other points can help you to check if you found the right medium/psychic for you, so you get most out of your reading.
Questions to ask yourself before you start looking for a medium/psychic:
Ask yourself honestly, why you want to see a medium or psychic? What is your motivation? Are you just curious or you experiencing a crisis in your life and you want some further advice? You might have lost a loved one and you know that some mediums are able to give proof of survival after death, which can be very reassuring.
The answer to the above questions will lead you closer to what you are looking for. If you experience a difficult situation in your life and want some advice of course you can go and see a psychic.
Psychics are more focused on working with your energy, the energy of your soul or akashic records.
A spiritual medium in its classic sense, delivers proof for life after death rather than focusing too much on your personal energy in that present moment. The focus of spiritualist mediums is to give evidence of your loved one from the spiritual world and then to bring you a message (in churches) that would assist you on your way.
Unfortunately many people or even working mediums/psychics are not aware of the difference between mediumship and psychic work. This is often caused due the lack of qualification and standard in their work and dependent on the teachers they have learnt from.
Working on a psychic level is a totally different energy than working on a mediumistic level, but both of them are equally important or worth.
There are mediums who will ask why you contacted them and its okay to say that you have a certain problem or question (but don’t name the problem or question) that is the mediums/psychic job to find out. But say it might has to do with your life or you are in need to speak to someone who has passed over into the spiritual world.
Do you want to see a medium/psychic in person or would you be okay to do a Skype session?
Many people do prefer to see a medium or psychic in person rather than a Skype session and there is nothing wrong with that. But our modern technology offers some amazing opportunities we should not miss out.
In general for the medium it doesn’t matter if you sit in front of them in real life or on the other side of a computer screen. Energy doesn’t have any limitations nor boundaries and a reading can be as good as in when you meet in person. I do a lot of Skype readings for people all over the world but also in person and never felt that it wouldn’t work better the one way or the other.
Furthermore I do believe that if we only focus on a medium who lives close by we do limit ourselves and our opportunities to find the right medium for us. There is maybe a medium in Australia you really feel drawn to but you are based in Germany, so why not try a Skype session?
There are also areas around the world where there maybe not many mediums around, especially in some countries where mediums not really common. It doesn’t mean that you should limit yourself rather than opening up to new opportunities.
Hunting for the right medium/psychic
So here we go, you clarified what you expect from a reading if you are looking for a reading about yourself which is then psychic (Life Reading, Akashic Records Reading, Psychic Reading, Soul Reading).
Or you are looking to gain some proof for life after death and needed to hear from a loved one in the spirit world that would be a mediumistic reading. Now you can go out and look for the right medium for you.
1. Ask your friends for recommendations
Best and easiest way is to ask your friends if anybody has ever been to a medium/psychic and could recommend someone. Recommendations are direct experiences and always good to start with. But keeping in mind that not every medium/psychic resonates with the same person. It might was good for your friend but you think it is not the right medium/psychic for you. Trust that feeling and keep on looking.
2. Check the mediums/psychic website
Its important to do some research and best for that is online. You can use google for the start and type in medium/psychic whether in your area or somewhere else. Check out the websites you find and see if it resonates with you.
a) Does the mediums/psychics picture appeal to you?
b) Are there any testimonials or reviews on the website?
c) Does the medium/psychic explain the way it works or does it only talk about
itself and how great he/she is?
d) Are there any contact details to get in touch with the medium/psychic before
booking a reading?
e) Does the way the medium/psychic present itself resonate with you? Or is it
too spaced out?
3. Check the pricing
Often the websites don’t give away a lot of information on the pricing and that is totally fine. It often can mean that the medium/psychic only works with committed people who actually make the effort to contact them.
Or the medium/psychic wants to decide if she/he can work with you after speaking to you. It allows time to get to know each other before a session gets booked.
Unfortunately there is no real guidelines with the pricing, some really expensive mediums are totally crap and some others very good mediums don’t charge a lot. So you can’t say that expensive is always good or cheap is always bad.
Most of the well-known mediums just got a good marketing company but it doesn’t mean that they do extraordinary work. On the other hand side I truly believe that being a genuine medium/psychic is a very valuable work and hard work but many people don’t see it as such.
If you want quality and you set your intentions towards it, I am sure you will be guided the right way.
4. Getting in touch with your medium/psychic
Once you made a decision and you found a medium/psychic of you choice its time to contact them. Do yourself and the medium a favour and have your questions at hand if you got any. So much time is wasted and emails been sent from people to us psychic/mediums with loads of unnecessary questions, pictures and asking for free readings.
Working in this field can sometimes be a bit tricky because people have all sorts of ideas about mediums/psychics.
A genuine medium/psychic will happily answer your questions when you make contact and will help to clarify your concerns if you have any.
If you don’t feel that is the case than you might not with the right medium/psychic then.
Once you happy with your first contact you can go ahead in booking a session via Skype or in person. Keeping in mind that mediums/psychics do this work for their living not for fun, means that you should keep the appointment you arranged or if you have to cancel as early as possible.
Some mediums ask for a deposit upfront as a sign of commitment for the appointment. Ask for their cancellation policy just to make sure you understood everything alright.
5. Be honest
It can happen during a reading that the medium might not picking up on your question or greatest desire. It is important to tell the medium that you are not happy with the reading within the first 10min of your reading. It gives the medium/psychic time to tune into you/or the spiritual world again to see what else is there to talk about.
You should be allowed to ask questions at any time and also keeping in mind that sometimes we hear things that we needed to hear but we don’t want to hear. This can be part of the reading as well. But most important, do speak up if you feel the reading is not for you or its going the wrong way!!!
In general just keep in mind the universal law of like attracts like. If you do your research with the right intentions I am sure you will find the right medium for you.
