To Develop Mediumship:
A Working Guide to Unfoldment
Spirit Guides and Controls
Most of what has been
discussed, thus far, revolves around the cooperation between a medium and
those in other realms of spirit. We stated that an evidential medium works
with a variety of spirit personalities, while an inspirational medium works
primarily with one or a small group of spirits. In this lesson, we shall
introduce spirit guides, spirit controls, and spirit controllers. At this
point in time, we shall discuss each very briefly and reserve Part II for
greater insight into these specific spirit friends.
Before proceeding, let us
Guide: This is a
spirit teacher and guardian who works with the medium throughout his or her
life; whose primary role is to help teach and inspire the medium and to
assist him or her in the process of mediumistic development.
Controller: This is a
spirit friend and teacher whose primary role is to take care of and protect
the medium, while working as a channel for spirit. He or she does this by
helping control the energy field of the medium, the sitter(s), and any
communicating spirit. The spirit controller may or may not be the same
individual as the spirit guide.
Control: A term used
primarily in trance mediumship. This refers to the specific spirit
communicator or operator who controls the consciousness of the medium
during the condition of trance.
