How do you know if you are ready to become a professional medium? It’s the million-dollar question and it weighs heavily on the minds of many who follow this path.
Becoming a Professional Medium
The most asked question in mediumship circles is how do you know you are ready to be a professional medium. The answers range anywhere from following your inner guidance to you will know when the time comes. Sorting through all the varying viewpoints can be daunting. It’s easy to say one must follow their inner voice when making this decision and it’s true, you should listen to your inner voice but, wouldn’t it be nice to have a few guidelines to help you as you make your decision?
Being a medium is much more than connecting with those who have passed to the other side. It’s more than relaying evidence of the survival of our loved ones in the spirit world or passing on messages of love. Mediums also serve as healers to those left behind as well as those who have passed. We truly are the bridge that brings the two worlds together allowing healing to take place.
With that, comes many responsibilities that go beyond the simple mechanics of conducting a reading. Before going professional, take a look at where you are in your development in regard to mechanics, general understanding of the spirit world, and how to package your evidence with empathy and compassion. Consider asking the following questions as you assess your development.
There are three things you can do to see if you have mastered these criteria.
It’s hard to listen to our readings and evaluate ourselves but, if you want to be the best medium you can be, then this is a great tool to use. Don’t worry, if you feel you are not quite ready to make the shift into the professional world.
Many mediums ease their way into charging clients. Consider the following options if you are not quite ready to charge fully.
Remember it isn’t the price we charge or the money we earn as a medium that makes us a medium. It is the quality of our work and how we can be of service to make a brighter world in which we live that will define us in the end. So, go on ask yourself the million-dollar question. Are you ready to be a professional medium?
