I am usually a pragmatic, scientific person. A natural skeptic.
But I've always been curious about mediumship and connecting with spirits. I think it took the death of a very loved person and my own health battles to truly open me up to believing.
Tonight I experienced it for the first time. A small group session with a medium. She did not know anything about us beforehand - not even our names.
You need to be open for this sort of experience to work. No anxiousness; no disbelief.
And honestly - I was blown away.
My sister Erin was there too, and we were both hoping to connect with our step-Dad, Robin. We were both open to the experience, and still very much feel his presence in our lives, so were hoping for a connection.
Mediums can work in many ways - they can sense things, see things, hear things or use their intuition. They can tell you things about a departed person, but they can also tell you things about yourself. They can sometimes give specifics about the departed, like sex, age, name. They can give general images - a "clue" if you will - something that connects you to this person. Something that only you would know.
The medium went to Erin first - and sensed a male - in a protecting relationship. Then the information came rolling fast - many identifying clues (a specific hat, the appearance of a skeleton and bones). The medium asked about blood tests in general, and eventually, was getting a message about something inflammatory happening to me. She asked if I had recently had a diagnosis. Then she asked if it was MS. She was also able to pick up details about when Robin passed away.
It was emotional. And exhausting. And here I sit, way past my bedtime. I cant stop thinking about this experience. I feel like I received some sort of confirmation tonight. Of what, exactly, I don't know. An energy? A force within ourselves? Within the universe?
It was amazing.
