A Bridge Beyond: What to Expect During Your
Meeting with a Spiritual Medium
Countless people struggle to handle the amount of uncertainty in their lives.
Many have questions about the future of their relationships, their income, their professional life, and other personal topics. Sometimes, they wish they could ask their loved ones that have passed on for advice.
In today's trying times, having the chance to connect in any way with someone from the other side is incredibly comforting. They miss the people that were close to them.
It's why you've decided to visit a spiritual medium for the first time.
Medium readers can help you to get in touch with friends, family members, and even historical figures from the other side. You may also see a medium to address a spirit's presence in your home or place of business.
If you've never seen a medium before, it can be difficult to know what to expect.
Consider this post a quick guide to what you'll likely experience when you decide to work with a spiritual medium.
What Is the Difference Between a Psychic and a Medium?
First of all, let's cover the difference between psychic and medium spiritual guides.
When you visit a psychic, you are primarily seeking direction regarding your future. You may also see a psychic so that you can address emotions you've been suppressing, learn about any current spiritual blocks, and get information about whether or not you're making smart decisions in the present.
The psychic will likely talk to you about your past, present, and future using their natural abilities. Though the psychic may use things like tarot cards and stones to help them offer you guidance, they are working with only themselves, their abilities, and you.
With a spiritual medium, other people who have died help you to get the answers you seek. Often, mediums will ask you to partake in a form of a seance, which is a ritual to establish a connection with the other side.
You'll be able to get closure from deceased friends, family members, and even pets. You may also communicate with spirits of any type to ask them to leave your home or to help them with their problems.
Psychics, most likely, will not involve the deceased in your readings.
Finally, you can connect with phone psychics and online psychics, but medium work must take place in person.
Preparing For Your Visit
We understand that you may feel frightened, nervous, or highly skeptical before you visit a spiritual medium for the first time.
All of these feelings are normal, but if you want to get the most out of your reading, try to leave all of these things at the door. Attempt to come with an open mind, and remember that there are no "guarantees" when it comes to contacting the other side.
You may wish to consider the person you would like to attempt to contact during your session, as well as the kinds of questions you'd like them to answer.
Sometimes, the spirit may not give you a chance to ask those questions, because they have a lot to say themselves!
You may be asked to bring a piece of clothing or a personal belonging of the departed person you wish to contact.
Finally, remember that Hollywood has greatly exaggerated the risk of "evil spirits" contacting you/interrupting a reading.
Remember, you are working with an experienced professional who knows how to keep these evil spirits at bay. Additionally, even if you want to use a medium to talk to a spirit that lives in your house and "acts up" or frightens you, they likely aren't evil.
Instead, they're likely doing the best they can to get your attention.
During the Session
The medium will greet you -- and you'll likely be surprised to see that they dress quite normally, not like the "fortune teller" costumes you expected.
You may sit down before the session begins to discuss your specific goals, or you may get right to it.
When it comes to contacting the deceased, each medium has their own unique and specific method. Some may ask you to meditate on the person you wish to contact, others may write until the spirit comes through, while others may ask you to participate in a traditional seance.
Do your research when selecting a psychic so you know which types of readings they specialize in.
Remember that it's completely fine -- encouraged, even -- to take notes during the session. Spirits can be talkative, and you want to make sure you get everything down.
Finally, understand that you may become quite emotional during or after the reading -- and the medium may become the same. Sometimes, spirits can transfer their emotional states onto others. This will fade and is completely normal.
You and the medium will likely quickly wrap things up and discuss what happened afterward. You may need to take a specific action to appease a spirit.
Is Seeing a Spiritual Medium Right for You?
Now that you know a bit more about what to expect out of your time with a spiritual medium, you're ready to schedule your first session.
Make sure you understand how much you'll be charged beforehand, ask if the medium can travel to your home if needed, and read reviews to ensure you're making the right choice.
