Adventures of a Reluctant Medium

    Thanks for your interesting reply, reluctantmedium. I'm also sorry to hear about your daughter. I was wondering if you could describe what telepathy feels like; what you experience when it's happening. When I heard my son's voice it felt external and I turned my head as I felt it came from behind like a wave, then ended inside my head where it became kind of metallic in tone.

    "Videos of what she is seeing"?? Do tell!

    Yes, scary, as it's cultural to be afraid of ghosts!

    No, couldn't tell if the apparition knew I was speaking.

    Yes, I was looking at photos of him shortly beforehand. This could be interpreted to suggest that what happened was the result of wishful thinking, but I was very used to looking at that tribute page soon after my son's death as his flatmates added to it, and nothing occurred then. My sister filled a book with photos printed from the internet which I didn't want to look at, and nothing happened when I finally did.
    I agree with you about the humour of the clothes appearing. Your father's golf gear sounds exactly what my Dad, who died last year, would wear! I can picture him now!
    It's interesting that your father has appeared but not your daughter, yet, if you could influence it, you'd likely choose your daughter over your father.
    It sounds as if your bishop is unusually open to these things. That's very funny about the twins keeping her busy! When you asked her about it, did you just say it out loud? And did she reply quickly? presumably telepathically, as before.

    Also interesting is the fact that you had the classic bedroom appearance, but also one at your workplace, since people might think the bedroom ones are just a result of dreaming. How strange about taking a step and not turning around. That's pretty scary to me! I'm coming over as a real scaredy-cat here. Maybe you should give in to all this, stop being reluctant and cultivate your gift?!

    Here is the thing. I'm not sure it is a good gift. Yes, in a way, but watch. So today the family buried the child who shared the last name which so intrigued me at the cemetary. I would not go to the funeral. Somehow I feel guilty. I did nothing wrong, but somehow this whole event has made me seriously sad. I am sad that bullying made this child feel so horrible he committed suicide and that somehow I was connected before he did this. Like perhaps the angels saw his grief and anticipated his death. And somehow I was close to that. I had no part in it, but yet I was connected to it. That is why I don't "cultivate" my gift. This is not the only event that has happened, there are many. Also, apparently these types of events have happened to my family members ON BOTH SIDES. I apparently had a great aunt who wrote an entire diary on dates. She knew dates of when things were going to happen. She also somehow was involved in a stone fence area. I do not know how the stone fence or big stones affected her abilities, but she was Polish and Russian and somehow used water and stones to forecast the future by dates. The funny thing is my sister can remember every event by its date and to a strange point. I am bothered by what happened at the cemetary and I am bothered at my frozen reaction to it. I did return to the cemetary to take more photos and put them on Find-A-Grave. There is something that draws me to that particular line of volunteering. As far as the "gift" thing -- I am still a very reluctant medium.

    I'm not at all surprised to hear your reluctance and that you feel terrible about the poor child who committed suicide. This is the worst misery ever for that family. It's inevitable that you will feel sad and haunted by it, especially now you've found out it was a suicide through bullying. So horrible that he hadn't any friends on his side. Of course, you're right; you are not to blame for this. Your original message shows how upset you were when it happened on Friday. I hope you're feeling better now. You say you feel connected because you were plagued by the compulsion to post your photos of the family grave, before the child died. Of course you couldn't have known what was about to happen. You didn't know anything about them at all. Maybe go back to your sympathetic bishop gentleman and he could say a prayer or two for the child?

    So are you really reluctant about being involved in what you are involved in and in the way you are involved in it? If so, what would you prefer?

    I don't know either the practitioner in the video or the practitioner who started this thread but a so-called 'psychic medium' is simply 'a psychic' in my book, reluctant or otherwise. And psychic awareness/sensitivity alone does not equal mediumship

    I wish I had a buck for every time I've said that over the years..... :confused:

    This post was in no means a recommendation of any sort.

    I'm assuming you're referring to your posting #16 which I hadn't considered a recommendation anyway. And my remarks relate to any such medium vs. psychic situation.

    I've just made time to speed-watch the video and what I saw was a fair bit of clairaudient evidential mediumship, a 'spiritual medium' (as it's often termed in the USA) working on a platform and not just a 'psychic medium' as she was introduced. How reluctant she was at being - or becoming - a medium I couldn't assess.

    In the latter stages of the demonstration, the Q&A section, she was using psychic reading and counseling for at least some of the time.

    Overall it's an interesting and helpful example of how an evidential medium may work in a public forum. :)

    I found it interesting. But then since I'm so new at this almost everything is interesting!:D Thanks mac, for taking the time to view the video and offer your assessment.:)
