How 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 define each.

         Spirit 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.

         Spirit 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.

         Spirit 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.
