Mediumship is a sacred practice that allows us to connect with the spirit world and communicate with our loved ones who have crossed over. In this blog, we will explore the importance of trusting your gut and listening to your intuition in mediumship work. We will delve into the significance of investigating and asking questions when your gut tells you something is off. By understanding and harnessing the power of intuition, we can enhance our mediumship abilities and create a deeper connection with the spirit realm.

Trusting Your Gut: The Voice of Intuition

Our gut instincts are like a compass, guiding us towards what feels right and warning us when something is amiss. In mediumship, our intuition plays a crucial role in receiving messages from the spirit world. Colleen St. Michaels, a renowned medium, emphasizes the importance of listening to your gut and paying attention to the signals it sends.

Colleen shares her personal experience of initially being afraid of mediumship and how her fear could have blocked the incredible gift she possesses. She encourages us to trust our intuition and have faith in ourselves, even when faced with fear and uncertainty. By allowing our intuition to guide us, we can open ourselves up to the wisdom and messages that the spirit world has to offer.

Investigating and Asking Questions

When practicing mediumship, it is essential to investigate and ask questions when your gut tells you something is off. Colleen highlights the importance of being aware of the messages our intuition is sending and taking the time to explore them further. She provides examples of situations where our gut instincts may be trying to communicate important information to us.

For instance, if you are in a job interview and your gut is twisting, it may be a sign that the job is not aligned with your true purpose. Instead of dismissing these feelings, Colleen encourages us to ask ourselves what our gut is trying to tell us. By asking the right questions and seeking answers from our intuition, we can gain valuable insights and make informed decisions.

Ethics and Boundaries in Mediumship

Colleen emphasizes the importance of ethics and boundaries in mediumship. She cautions against profiting off of people's pain and vulnerability, highlighting the need for integrity in this sacred practice. Colleen shares her personal approach to mediumship, where she focuses on creating an open and light space for her clients, rather than fostering dependency.

She also stresses the need for mediums to understand their limitations and refer clients to other professionals when necessary. Colleen believes in the power of collaboration and building a network of trusted therapists and energy workers to provide holistic support to clients. By maintaining ethical practices and respecting boundaries, mediums can create a safe and empowering environment for their clients.

Final Thoughts

Trusting your gut and listening to your intuition are essential skills in mediumship. By honing these abilities, we can deepen our connection with the spirit world and deliver meaningful messages to those seeking guidance. It is crucial to investigate and ask questions when our intuition signals that something is off, as this can lead to valuable insights and a stronger connection with the spirit realm.

Ethics and boundaries play a vital role in mediumship, ensuring that clients receive the support they need without fostering dependency. By maintaining integrity and collaborating with other professionals, mediums can create a safe and empowering space for their clients to heal and find solace.

In conclusion, mediumship is a sacred practice that requires us to trust our intuition, investigate our gut instincts, and uphold ethical standards. By embracing these principles, we can unlock the full potential of our mediumship abilities and create a profound impact on the lives of those we serve.
