A Medium is a natural conduit for Spiritual energy, which means that Spirits can tap into their vibration, and use their residual energy to connect and communicate in this world.
A trained Medium, realizes they are in control of their energy, and often develops skills, that make it so they determine whether or not they allow their energy to be used. This is a helpful when it comes to living a normal life. Untrained Mediums often feel drained, and overwhelmed by the activity they experience when Spirits are around. Being able to control the use of your energy creates boundaries, and puts the Medium in charge of when and where such contact takes place.
As someone who works regularly with the Spirit world; both that of the dead and that of nature, I prefer to be asked if my energy is going to be used. I set aside time, and go into my working with intention. This helps me to feel centered, and gives me the ability to tune-out unwanted visitors. When working I want to be connected to Spirit and often allow my energy to be utilized, as long as it is not misused. I have boundaries and time limits. I treat the Spirits like all other sentient beings I encounter; with respect and compassion, and I expect them to treat me the same.

When I open myself to Spirit, I am not doing so blindly. I am doing so through trained methodology, one that is laden with protection, and guardianship. The Spirits who make up my personal team, provide me with assurance I am safe, and eyes on the other side, as they are often able to see things I cannot. There is a routine to the way I do things, a ceremonial repetition that gains strength every time I use it. Like mantras and ritualistic prayers, my practices are infused with the energy of every time I have done so before, and every time I will do so in the future. They are connected, each empowering the other through time and space. This allows me to move more freely in my work, for I trust my team, and trust the work itself.
My rituals and connection to personal Spirits, grants me the freedom to be truly present and open whether I am teaching, doing a Psychic Reading, speaking to the Dead, or doing healing work. I am open and connected in those moments, and often unusual things can happen.
One of the most remarkable things that has happened lately, involved audible sound and Spirit connection.
A few months ago, while teaching my weekly, sound meditation class, Spirit took the opportunity to emote loud and clear. The weeks class was designed around Vocal Toning and emotion. Toning is the use of ones voice for energetic balancing. In short it is intuitive singing laden with intention. If you have never experienced it before, check out the video I posted on my Facebook page titled Salicrow, Earth Day https://www.facebook.com/pg/salicrowpsychicmedium/videos/?ref=page_internal.
While working with our emotions and Toning, we explored how our voice sounded and vibrated differently when we held the emotions of sadness, anger, joy, and love. At the end of the class we discussed how this felt to us, and spoke on which emotions resonated the strongest with us personally. One of the men in the class had recently lost his wife, and was still strongly mourning her presence. As he spoke of the emotions that effected him most, he was moved to tears. At that moment there was the sound of wind chimes, loud and clear, from the corner of the room. Now first of all, I have no wind chimes in my studio, nor do I have anything that could remotely sound like chimes. Secondly, there was no wind, stirring the room, as it was still quite cold out, and the windows were shut. Most importantly, there was no one sitting in the area the sound came from, but we all experienced ‘hearing’ the chimes.
How does did that happen? You may ask…
Simply put, the Spirit, the man’s wife, took advantage of the vast amount of energy we had been raising in our class, and the fact that there was a Medium in the room. In that moment, when the energy was full, she pushed her self into the world of the living, choosing something that was very compatible with the work we were doing….Sound!
So the next time, you hear something unexplained, like a creaky floor with no one walking on it, or the sound of music coming from no where, make sure to acknowledge the sheer amount of will, and energy the Spirit is using to make contact. In most cases those Spirits are our Beloved Dead; our ancestors, loved ones and friends, reaching out to let us know that they still stand with us, they still support us, and love us.
I appreciate your support, and hope you enjoyed the read. Please feel free to pass it around to those who it may benefit.
