To Develop Mediumship:
A Working Guide to Unfoldment
What exactly is a
physical medium? A physical medium is a person, on the Earth plane, who can
be used by a spirit operator for the purpose of manipulating physical
systems. This manipulation of physical systems is done either to
demonstrate the reality of physical mediumship or to identify the spirit.
The reason a person is able to become a physical medium is that he or she
offers the spirit operators a certain vital, magnetic energy which is
necessary for those operators to make a direct impact upon the Earth plane.
Regardless of how, where, or under what circumstances any physical
phenomenon occurs, there must be a physical instrument, or medium,
somewhere in the area to offer the necessary vital energy and to act as a
vehicle, or transformer, through which the spirit can operate upon the
Apart from offering vital
energy to the spirit operators, some physical mediums are very fluid in
their etheric bodily make-up; consequently, they can offer a materializing
substance which can be used by the operators to manifest. This we shall
discuss very shortly.
Very often, the signs of
physical mediumship appear quite early in life; in particular during the
period of puberty. The signs range from unusual happenings and sounds, to
movements taking place in the vicinity of the child. Sometimes the
occurrence of such happenings intensifies as the child matures; sometimes,
they subside until a decision is made to sit regularly for the proper
development of mediumship.
During the turn of the
century, when physical mediumship was quite common, there were many young
people giving public demonstrations of physical mediumship. The pressures
placed upon these young vessels for spirit was intense, and many simply
could not handle it. Physical mediumship requires a tremendous expenditure
of vital energy. Many such mediums "burn out" fairly early in
life, because they simply do not control, within proper limits, the use of
their mediumship. Physical mediumship is relatively rare in occurrence, and
people are anxious to witness it. The physical medium must learn to say
"no" when the pressure to produce phenomena becomes too great. If
he or she does not, the temptation to cheat-- and, over the years, it has,
to a great degree -- may present itself.
