I am concerned about beginner mediums developing alone. I am aware bad habits, insensitivity and all manners of errors can happen with mediums who teach themselves or do courses with no experienced medium present. When it comes to money exchanging hands, whether a small or large amount of money, the developing medium has to be responsible and do their research before handing money over. It may seem harsh to hear, but the charge is an offer, and much like in any business, no one is forced to accept that offer. Sadly, not all mediums are ethically responsible to their clients. We can not excuse people from their own actions.quote:"It's when some people .......... openly say mediumship cannot be taught that creates division or separation that concerns me." And I am concerned when it's implied anyone can learn to become a medium as some self-teach, self-learn courses suggest - especially so if a large charge is made for the course.
Once again, I agree. Everyone is entitled to their opinion and free to express that opinion. Whether a person hears "you can never become a medium" or "you can learn how to become a medium" is someone's opinion. And while not everyone who chooses to develop mediumship will go on to demonstrate mediumship professionally, in terms of their spiritual progression, their experiences may be life-changing.Every individual is entitled to her/his opinion and to express that opinion but on the score of learning to become a medium it can ONLY be opinion whichever way one is persuaded. Having said that, in the back of my mind I think I've read something from a spirit teachers/guide (maybe Silver Birch) on this subject. I wish my memory was better!
I'm much more likely to be influenced in my approach by what a teacher has to tell us than I am by any incarnate's ideas. Always assuming I can remember it! lol
