So what does it mean when one is a "medium"?
Mediums are people who have a special gift that allows those in the Spirit World to give messages from the afterlife. The objective of a medium’s work is to prove survival of the human personality after death and to help the bereaved come to terms with their loss. Sittings with mediums are not for fortune telling but are experimental sessions to provide evidence of survival. There are many ways that the medium receives messages: either by hearing (clairaudience), seeing (clairvoyance) or feeling (clairesentience). These are the methods that David uses to communicate with spirit to deliver messages to you.
"I guess that I would have to say that my experience with 'knowing' certain things began when I was a child. I remember being able to totally entertain myself without friends or playmates. That’s because my playmates were sometimes those of the 'unseen'. I can clearly remember hearing voices, anticipating phone calls and knowing what song was going to be next on the radio. I even remember 'seeing people' in my bedroom as a child in the middle of the night. However, I was not frightened. Being brought up in a conservative Midwestern town and my entire family being embedded in their conservative Christian faith, I dare not talk about what I experienced and never acted on my ability for it was considered evil.
It wasn’t until 2002 when I began 'soul searching' and exploring my personal spiritual path that I was able to determine what being a 'medium' was all about. I began doing a lot of meditation and energy work and this seemed to open the door to my long dormant ability. I remember the first time it happened. I was sitting with a friend in his apartment talking and all of sudden his deceased grandmother began communicating with me. I threw out the messages I was getting and my friend was able to validate what I was saying. It was then that I determined that this was a gift and that I needed to use it wisely and with compassion.
I have been working as an intuitive medium for several years now. I have made a commitment that I would like to use this wonderful yet sometimes frightening and fragile universal gift to work with people more and on different levels. I feel drawn to teach others with mediumship ability as well how to use their gifts and I am excited to launch my mediumship workshop this year." Visit David's Website
