I believe that Spiritual Healing can manifest through many forms. We must never underestimate the importance of the opportunities that arise for us to work in our healing rooms or sanctuaries. Likewise we must not restrict our healing and mediumship by confining it to only those times.
My own definition of Spiritual Healing is “that which lifts the spirits of any other being”.
How can Spiritual Healing commence?
Spiritual Healing can begin with the simple action of smiling, a kind word, the taking time to listen. It may be the sharing of a funny story. It can be anything that lights up of another’s spirit in any way you can. If you see someone struggling with their daily pressures and take time to talk to them so they feel better afterwards is that not also Spiritual Healing? Would it therefore not be a shame if we treat those we meet each day with any less importance or caring than we do if we have a booked healing appointment?
Those great Pioneers that have gone before us have given us the opportunity to allow our healing and mediumship to take place without prejudice against us like it did so harshly to so many in the past. Any minute in any day could present an opportunity for us to work and make a difference to another. As healers and mediums surely we all seek the best way we can serve others and make a change to the better around us. Why restrict our healing and mediumship by confining it to short appointments?
Why not open our eyes in the morning and include our mediumship in all that we do? Sensibly of course but to me this is why I also define my mediumship as being anything that lifts the spirits of another!
We then go to bed each night feeling better in ourselves when we reflect on the days accomplishments.
As healers we also benefit!
It’s a real win-win situation then, the more we help the more we benefit. Things we do for others are immediately returned to ourselves. The more we do the more we benefit.
Thank you to Sarah for asking a very interesting question.
Do all Mediums work in the same way?
Mediums do not all work in the same way.
I believe that the majority of Mediums work mainly with their clairsentience enhanced with other abilities.
I believe at times the majority of Mediums switch between what we term as “psychic” work and “spiritual” work.
Is a “Spiritual” Medium better than a “Psychic” Medium?
There appears to be a preconceived idea that if we work with our psychic faculties we just aren’t as good as someone who doesn’t. I also believe that they are all part of the whole service we offer and they do overlap each other during a sitting.
Some of the highest standing mediums I’ve met have during training sessions indicated when they were working psychically and when they are linking with spirit. I see this as a credit to them.
I think it is important as Mediums to recognise which mode we are in however as we become more experienced the moving between the two becomes almost instantaneous.
We all have quite unique ways of working.
As a Medium, I have my own preferred way of working utilising certain ways that I have become more adept at over the years.
My Mediumship is constantly evolving and what works for me won’t necessarily work for others. I, therefore, hope that others don’t just try to mimic or copy the methods I work with or those of other Mediums.
I would prefer that those reading my articles or sitting in my groups take that which I share and try it, adapt it, pull it apart, put a spin on it, try it, reassemble it, embrace that which works for them and discard that which doesn’t as we all work differently.
I try to share a range of ideas hoping others will discover something that will help them. We must share similar goals but our abilities and the way we access the information being relayed to us can be quite different!
If you find something that works feel FREE to share it so we can experiment with that idea too. As long as we attempt new ways of working in a way that steps aside from our preconceived ideas we will make progress along the way.
Our Spirit Friends nudge us in the right direction but we have to be prepared to step outside our comfort zones to find those clues left before us.
Best wishes and thank you for visiting my site. Feel free to share anything you find of value with others.
I’m often asked how many healing sessions will be required. “As many as you feel you need” will ALWAYS be my response. This is not a non-committal statement. There are a number of important reasons driving this response.
There are certainly people who appear to benefit more from a number of sittings. I follow guidelines to ensure my motives are transparent.
As a Spiritual Healer that charges (albeit for charity), it may be viewed that more healing sessions provide increased income for me.
It would be easy to tell a vulnerable person that they need 6 healing sessions at £20 in order to extract £120 from them. This isn’t what I’m about. My healing mediumship is not financially driven. It would be easy to be misunderstood by those that don’t know me on a personal level.
I have always been conscious that care should be taken not to request that a Client booked a follow-up healing session, however, this sometimes left me feeling that more may have been of benefit however that I couldn’t suggest it. I knew that some people responded better to multiple sessions but was just too worried about being seen as a fraud only wanting people back in order to facilitate a brighter financial position for myself.
Realising that my concerns always focused on the financial aspects made it easier to address. All I needed to do was remove the financial aspects and I could then carry on with the work in hand.
There are occasions when I feel at the end of the healing session that more may be accomplished with additional healing sessions. If this isn’t raised by the client and I feel that I’d like to attempt more sessions I may invite them back free of charge. This works at times when I feel there’s more to attempt removing any financial misunderstandings. Shows also there are no hidden motives.
My advice to Clients is for them to see how they get on over the next week to ten days and then contact me if they feel that they would like any additional healing sessions. They can, of course, contact me in the interim if they have any concerns.
I approach every healing session with the intent to see someone once and hope that the session can do as much as possible for that person as possible with no need for further sittings. I’d love to provide a first-time fix service for everyone, however, this isn’t possible. There are times when I feel that the person may benefit from a number of healing sessions. If I feel this strongly I will tell them, ensuring they know these are undertaken through their own free will. It would be fabulous if we could make guarantees however sadly this is not the case. We never really know what benefit a healing sitting will bring.
An example of multiple healing sessions & benefits
A number of years ago I visited a client weekly for a month. I knew after the first session that all the issues they had would be unlikely to be addressed in a single healing session. Having sent a thought to my healing helpers I got confirmation that they were in agreement. I asked the person if I could see them weekly for a further three visits and to remove any misunderstandings about my motives advised that there would be no charge.
Upon completion of the healing sessions, I could see how beneficial it had been to the person. I’m sure that results were better than they would have been if there had only been a single sitting. Seeing the improvements was payment enough. I noticed each session felt quite different from the others. It seemed each week provided opportunities to work on levels not achieved the previous session.
On reflection, I feel I may approach these situations differently in future. Rather than predicting a total number of weeks approach it with “I feel another session could be of benefit” reviewed after that one had taken place rather than commit to a specific number of sessions.
What’s in it for me if a free session is offered?
If I work spiritually with the truest intent there doesn’t have to be anything in it for me at all.
There are many personal advantages in my opinion. Opportunities are created to attempt to do as much as possible for someone. Nothing compares to the satisfaction of seeing positive changes in someone.
I welcome any opportunity to learn more about my healing mediumship and each healing session adds to my experience. I like to feel that I’ve done as much as I possibly could for someone.
With regards to the case study referenced above, seeing the change in that person made it so worthwhile. Total job satisfaction!
