Mediumship, survival and death

    At Mac's suggestion, I am starting a new thread and keeping it vague, about mediumship.

    My sister is a medium. She's had some odd experiences, as have I (I don't think I'm a medium, though).
    I don't want to derail the topic too much, but she once called my mother from afar, out of nowhere, to tell her to rush home at that moment as something bad was going to happen to my brother. My mother got up from work and headed home immediately. My mother arrived in time to save my brother from asphyxiation. At the hospital, later, where he ended up staying for a couple of weeks, they said he was within seconds-minutes of dying.
    She's done her share of work in mediumship, getting introduced to Kardec while in a randomly induced trance state. I don't know a whole lot about it, at this point, but this was not the only instance where my sister exhibited awareness beyond what she "should have had" at the time.

    To answer Mac's post on the other thread:
    "[I, too, don't want to take this subject any further off-topic and will remove this comment and any responses to it later this evening. With a sister who has psychic ability you might do well to listen to what she knows and put some of your questions to her. Please don't address my comments here but starting a new thread might be interesting and helpful.]"
    I've read the books my sister has read, and have spoken to her. Her ideas of the afterlife seem a bit different from some of the ones I hear here, and I take her ideas into account, as I take all others, until I truly know. I've put some questions to her. Some she doesn't know, some she has answered. They aren't evidence of knowledge, they are her opinions. She understands that, even as she believes. I trust her, and I've witnessed things I can't explain in life as well. I'm the first to admit that there is more to life than we know. But I also can't know for sure what that is- I seek to find out.
    I am interested in mediumship. I have heard of some interesting developments there, though the mediums I've gone to all have failed in every possible way, so far. Not a single time close to a hit. I still have hope I will find someone credible to speak with (my sister is emotionally involved and admits she isn't the person to try and do anything in that regard. I wish she could help. I've tried.)

    Perhaps if you outlined what she says about survival et al a conversation might begin about mediumship and what should be expected of it?

    My sister seems mostly a believer in Alan Kardec's teachings. She doesn't like to speak of it much, so I will keep it to the little that I know, and I can ask her further questions about it.

    When she communicates, she says she hears from messengers, rather than directly from people. She says usually people depart and go to a place of suffering, because most here are pretty far away from the ideals of unconditional love, by "choice", because it happens to be the way their spirit is, and the thoughts they manifest. She seems to believe people choose the families they are born into, though I think I'll confirm, and that people can be influenced by spirits. After one dies, they are often allowed to attend their funerals. She says she saw my brother there for his.
    She thinks we have spirit guides, and that she is her spirit, though her spirit contains far more information about her past than she is aware of, as some believe in.
    Her view of the afterlife seems to be quite human centric. I will confirm that.

    I have tried to get more information, but she doesn't like to speak about the topic. I've tried to get her to get more information from my brother, but she didn't feel emotionally well enough to do so, for a while. Last I asked her about it, she said he still wasn't ready to communicate, due to the nature of his departure.

    So do any of her beliefs resonate for you?

    I think they are all interesting. I can't say they resonate any more than most other beliefs I've read about in the afterlife.
    There is one that doesn't particularly resonate for me, though it isn't hers. It's the idea that we have a spirit, and spirits split into up to 12 shards/aspects, and we are each an aspect of a major spirit. That the afterlife is highly structured and hierarchical. That doesn't resonate.

    No shards. In fact, nothing remotely like that kind of creepy nonsense - you remain individual. And what you experience as awareness is sometimes also called "spirit" and is a limited subset of the Consciousness energy that continuously manifests this universe. You come here to learn how to better increase your consciousness vibration, because indeed reality is stratified to what appears to be a nearly infinite degree based upon our level of spiritual development. You want to go higher, and when you have better developed spiritually you can indeed go higher. To a nearly infinite degree.
