To Develop Mediumship:
A Working Guide to Unfoldment
Working With Spirit
Cooperation is the Key
Of primary importance in
working effectively as a channel for those in Spirit is a clear
understanding that a cooperative effort is involved. As a channel for a
spirit communicator, you are expanding and/or extending your consciousness
to the mental impressions and influences of another. Your mind becomes
involved in the process of mediumship, to a greater or lesser degree,
depending upon circumstances and conditions. You are working with the
spirit friends. You, as well as they, have a role; both have to consider
and respect each other in these respective roles.
We discussed the importance of
setting goals in mediumship. Furthermore, we asked you to consider why you
wish to develop mediumship, what type of mediumship you wish to develop,
and how much a part of your life you would like mediumship to become. We
stated, further, that goal-setting helps set things in place. It is, now,
time to consider other issues.
There is a guide involved in
your work. He or she, too, has hopes and aspirations. In considering the
pathway of your development, you must, therefore, consider the wishes of
your guide. The guide will attempt to work with you in any way he or she
can; but, if the relationship is to be one of genuine cooperation, then
each must consider the aspirations of the other.
Another point to remember is
this: your guide is intimately interested in your mediumistic unfoldment.
Although circle meetings offer the opportunity to practice your inner
sensitivity, the period between meetings is just as important. If you know
or are aware of your guide, do not hesitate to consult with him or her
during these periods. If you have a problem with your mediumship, seek the guidance
of the circle leader and, by all means, take a few moments each day to sit
in quiet meditation and ask for spirit's assistance. During circle
meetings, you will receive comments, suggestions, and criticisms from the
leader; between these meetings, you should consult your guide for his or
Let your guides assist you in
the development of your mediumship. Engage in open conversations with them.
Be free and natural. Many developing mediums fall into the habit of feeling
that their guides know everything that is going on with them. Our guides
have other things to do besides guide us. Therefore, we must, from time to
time, verbalize in our minds what is happening with us and share these
thoughts and feelings with them. We must never assume that the guides
automatically know everything about us and about what we are going through.
