So this summer I’ve been trying to take it a little easy. I know, easier said than done. But I have at least put forth the effort. For example, you haven’t been reading my blog every week because I haven’t been writing one every week. (Sorry, I’ll try to get back on schedule with that.) We’ve also taken a break from recording our podcast, The Psychic Wives, for the summer. As everyone knows, there’s a lot going on during this time of year. So in general, this has been a good thing for me.
While we’ve been on break from the podcast, however, a few friends and I have filled that time slot with what we call our Mediumship Circle. A Circle is when Mediums get together to practice their skills, add to them, tweak them, learn more, etc. A Circle is a really good way to keep limber so to speak. (But, it’s also been a blast! We definitely LOVE what we do…)
One of the best things I like about working with colleagues in Circle is because they push me. They push me to be the best I can which in turn makes me be of better service to my clients. Here’s an example. I was giving a reading for my colleague and was connected with an old friend of hers in Spirit. I think I said something like, “I feel this young man passed in a ‘bad way’, but that it was an accident and he was involved in the blame himself.” All of that was true. But my friend just said, “Go deeper there. See what else you can feel.”
Bummer. Because now I feel like I’m either going to pass or fail this test. Now I immediately put pressure on myself to ‘get it right.’ But we all started having a conversation about that feeling. And I remembered what one of my mentors said to me. He said, “Your client is not the person sitting in front of you. Your client is the human (or animal) in Spirit.” And remembering that really helped me. Because it actually makes all the difference in the world. In the reading with my colleague I wasn’t working for her. I wasn’t there to prove anything to her. I wasn’t there to get it right. I was there to help her friend in Spirit get a message across. And when I remind myself to look at it that way, it takes the pressure off. Because honestly, if I don’t understand something, I can just go back to that Spirit and ask them to explain. And it really is that simple.
One of the reasons I love offering Mediumship readings is the relief I feel from Spirit when I do get that message across. Yes, I’m totally happy when you get it too, but in actuality,
It’s not about you.
(But I’m totally saying that with love!)
Live and learn with love…
