Prepare to be bombarded by "requests"
Ok I will tackle your questions a bit at a time - you have covered a lot of ground in one paragraph there Grid lol!!
I am curious as to what types of questions do "sitters" (??? is that the word for a "read requestor") ask. Is it all about money, love or deceased
Ok "sitters" in the sense I refer, are in a mediumship sense - Ie, dealing with spirit - I cannot recall if psychic readers refer to them the same.
However, seldom am I asked questions because contact with spirit is largely a one way affair in my experience. With a strong emotional and physical
contact, I trust spirit to know and understand what needs to be said, and in what way. I certainly would not answer any psychic questions, as I wish
to believe in free-will of a person to choose. Psychic - About the person, Medium - Contact with spirit. They are very different experiences. I
would point out however, reluctantly, I do engage in psychic "reads" if I believe a friend or colleague needs to know something important due to a
path they are PRESENTLY engaged with - they will not always know I am doing it though.
Can you help a person rise above the physical to a more metaphysical mind set? For instance, if I asked if I would ever have and exercise this gift,
would you be able to answer it?
Simple answer is yes, you have it and will be using it every day whether you choose to believe or recognise it or not - and yup, hard-nosed,
closed-minded, skeptical debunkers do it too!! Alas, just like a medical experiment that uses the term it's "just the placebo effect" - oh yes, that
spontaneous self healing of no importance
- so closed minded skeptics will have trusted their own intuition, instinct on MANY occasion just without
registering it. Psychic ability is simply an extended, developed and further understood extention of this. Mediumship, you can with practice also
develop this skill if it is not naturally occuring in you - which it may be, you may just not realise. A good strong spiritualist church will often
provide training to anyone with an open mind and willing to learn, in a supportive environment. It is not how it happened to me, but I have met a few
excellent mediums who learnt this way. It is like any muscle or skill, some people find it easier than others - but I believe ALL can develop at
least a degree of skill in this area.
Remember - psychic skills, are simply STRONG intuitive thoughts - after all if we think, "I must do this today" - where is it coming from, apart from
a comprehension of our own future? Intuition is in tune with something big, and able to connect on a far higher level - and it is PERFECTLY natural.
I believe the link will be found within Quantum Physics or Mechanics as to how this all occured, particularly Entanglement. I must point out, I do
believe we have a great proportion of free will to create our lives around us - and that we have the power to do so with a strong, dedicated mind that
is well trained. I am very passionate about letting people know this, and I also provide training to businesses and people in this area... also for
Also, now that you have exposed your gift, will you be affected by all the thoughts from the ATS posters here, who want you to read for them? How do
you possibly keep yourself from being bombarded by "reading" material? I only ask because I believe your story and believe you are truly gifted and I
would like to know how you are able to separate yourself from feelings for other's. I don't think I am wording this correctly so I hope you understand
what I am really saying.
Completely understand, brilliant questions and I hope the replies help enlighten and encourage here - that was my primary reason for joining. In
short, yes I have been affected by the thoughts and I didn't think I would have
- I have been bombarded by names, images, Lord knows what else
because it has been a LONG time since I have been in a place with so many open and wonderous minds. I have had to on more than one occasion take a
good hours walk in the countryside to clear my head - it is near impossible to separate out. In short it is like being given a box of bits of paper
with random information on, and a room chock filled with people you do not know, each wanting for you to give them the correct bits of paper without
you having a clue!! This is a very new and unusual experience for me - and one in truth, that is a little overwhelming, as you can imagine...you don't
join ATS thinking you will be doing readings lol! I merely joined to share my experience and personal knowledge in the hope it assisted someone in
their own personal quests.
Hope that helps my friend
