What is a Medium?

Thought I’d share something with you about what a medium is exactly. What I’ve noticed is that a lot of people assume that mediums just know all the answers and are able to answer all your questions. That’s not really how it works because we are simply listening, and it’s up to the spirit to decide what they want to answer. We have no control over where the conversation goes. As a medium, I get a little stressed when someone asks me to connect with a loved one in a reading or base their entire reading off of connecting to a loved when that isn’t my specialty. I make it a point to address what my skills are before they set their appointment. It’s okay to ask me to connect with a loved one because then I might be willing to do the reading for free since I can’t make any guarantees that I’ll be able to connect. It’s very important to pay attention to the specific medium’s style, specialties, and skills.

So what is a medium exactly?


Mediums are simply messengers. They are here to listen to your spirit guides, angels, and loved ones to give you the answers to your questions. This is also called channeling. Each medium has their own set of skills and specialties on how they communicate and connect to both you and spirits. Mediums are listening to what is being told to them, so it is completely up to the spirit on what is answered. Not all the time will your answers be what you want, and not all the time will spirits answer your question. Sometimes mediums won’t be able to pick up on a certain spirit. There are several reasons for this:

1. You’re not meant to know the answer yet because it could interfere with your life path and/or it won’t serve your purpose to know that piece of information yet.

2. Spirit doesn’t feel like commenting on a question (spirits have emotions too and they can choose whether or not they feel like answering)

3. The medium could be blocking or having an off day, which happens to even the most seasoned medium

4. You, the client, have doubt, intense, grief, or any other type of dense energy. This causes for your energy to be cut off to the medium and makes it hard for them to be able to connect to you and the spirit.

The most important thing to remember is that each medium has their own filter, so information may come out a little differently between each individual medium because of their own set of beliefs and truths. This is why you should choose a medium that resonates with you the most because it will make for a better reading for both the medium and for you. Also, if a medium tells you something in a reading that doesn’t resonate with you, then that’s okay because you don’t need to agree with everything or take everything in a reading as fact. If it doesn’t sit right with you, then just drop that piece of information and carry on. Your heart knows you better than any medium will.
