"Take the 'Me' out of Mediumship." The first time I heard this it blew my mind. It was actually when I was testing for my Psychic Medium certification in the Fall of 2016. The statement puzzled me at first. I knew it inherently however, this quick phrase solidified and validated what I already knew. It made me relax and gave me a peaceful confidence. I was getting too into my head from fear and nerves about my upcoming testing later that day. It was certainly a timely reminder - allowing the words to resonate, sink in, and take hold on a totally different level.
In Mediumship readings, you want to do well. To bring the loved one through. To make that connection to Spirit with amazingly accurate evidence. To please the client and connect with who they want to hear from. To do a good job for yourself. But I have learned from my teachers that this is Ego. At first I strived for those things, and now? Now it is about purely serving Spirit. Yes, I want to strive to be the best Medium I can be, but not for me - for the work of Spirit. They make it happen, not me. It is about serving Spirit and your sitter. It is not about you as the Medium.
When I feel nervous or pressured or intimidated before a reading, I put this at the forefront of my mind and it settles my anxiety. It helps me to step into my power as a servant of Spirit. It makes me feel strong. This is not about me. This is about serving a higher purpose. This is not about my success - it's about being a facet of someone's healing journey. To hold sacred space for someone. Selfless humble service. I love what I do - Mediumship brings me great joy! Every time I give a reading, I am astonished at the power, ingenuity, wise brilliance, and magic of Spirit. I am excited and grateful for the opportunity to learn more.
