What is a Medium?

ZowieCarr ♡ WalkswithSpirit

My Friends

A sharing and enlightening post, some enjoy my manifestation posts, some the soul guidance sent daily from Angel’s and Spirit Guides…some are intrigued by how I work and like evidence posts…

Some like the detail. Trying to make sense of what the @#() I do.

So what is a medium…let’s add a little meat on the bone for you.

Whether one refers to him- or herself as a psychic medium, spiritual medium, intuitive medium or any other similar title, it’s all essentially the same thing—the emphasis being on talking to spirits in the afterlife. While I refer to myself as a “psychic medium,” there is a big difference between a psychic and a medium.

A psychic isn’t necessarily a medium, but a medium is a psychic. This is an important distinction and a good place to start, because I meet clients all the time who misunderstand the difference and confuse the two.

Psychics tune into the energy of people or objects by feeling or sensing elements of their past, present and future. Simply put, psychics rely on their basic sense of intuition and psychic ability to gather information for the person being read.

Mediums take it a step further. A medium uses his or her psychic or intuitive abilities to see the past, present and future events of a person by tuning into the spirit energy surrounding that person. This means mediums rely on the presence of non-physical energy outside of themselves for the information relevant to the person being read.

Similarly, all medical students are required to take the basic entry-level medical courses, such as physics, biology and chemistry. Premed students are trained in the basics before moving on to higher-level courses and choosing their medical specialty, such as cardiology, pediatrics or oncology.

The emphasis of my work is mediumship: making connections with and delivering messages from people who are no longer living to those who still are. I receive information primarily and directly from the dead, spirit guides and angels.

While there are a few different forms of mediumship, I work mainly as a mental medium, which means I communicate with spirits through the use of telepathy.

Spirits impress my mind and body with thoughts and feelings that come in the form of “clairs.” I mentally “hear” (clairaudience), “see” (clairvoyance), “know” (claircognizance) and/or “feel” (clairsentience) messages from spirits.

I like to say that I act as the bridge between the spiritual and the physical world, with the intention of healing both worlds.

Another important distinction is that while psychic readings often focus on predicting future events, mediums primarily tune into past and present issues.

Predicting the future, helpful, runs the risk of disempowering people. Always remember that you do have a say in how your future unfolds. I am always explicit in my guidance on the free will of yours and that of others than can and will alter the course…..erm let’s take Coronovirus as our example.

Despite what any psychic or medium may “see” in your future, it is important to remember you were given the gift of free will when you came into this world, and at any moment in time you can absolutely redirect your course and create the life you want by changing your thoughts and actions. The human developes the ego exactly for this souls lesson in each incarnation.

Psychic information is an insight into what potentially could happen based on the road you are currently traveling—and it should be used only as a guideline to help you make the best choices for yourself. I will state openly, I receive and share many reviews years after readings telling me how things indeed came to pass and the accuracy of the path identified.

Just as in any profession, mediums have specialties and areas of expertise.

Allison Dubois in Medium works with the police in solving crimes. Melinda Gordon in The Ghost Whisperer helps tormented souls cross over.

Over the years, it has become very clear that my job lies in working with souls who have happily crossed over to the other side and, for the most part, are at peace. Sure, they may have regrets or unresolved issues, but they’re not haunted or lost.

And the souls here yearning for contact with their team in spirit and those crossed over.

My path would seem Souls growth regardless of the realm in which they sit.

Oftentimes, it’s the living that are not at peace. The main goal of your deceased loved ones and spirit guides is to assist you in moving on, free of grief and struggle, so you can fulfill your life lessons and enjoy your time here on earth.

Some people ask if I, much like a doctor, chose this specialty as my service. On a basic human level, the answer is no…it chose me. On a soul level I know this is what I signed up to do in this lifetime.

My responsibility lies in simply acknowledging and accepting what comes naturally for me, and embracing the calling to serve as a messenger for Spirit.

From time to time, it may be helpful to seek out the counsel of someone objective for guidance or connection with spirit, and/or to gain a clearer read on your life.

If a psychic, medium or any other intuitive healer speaks to you, I encourage you to set your intentions and then simply let go and go with the flow.

Spirit will guide you as to who and what is in your highest and best good in that moment. You will have heard me speak time and again, how I never ask why you seek a spiritual counselling session….

Well spirit brought you and they will tell you why.

There sweet friends is an insight into me and what is a medium.

With love, and thanks for your dear time reading these words.

Sleep tight, knowing you are safe and watched over.

Action. Get it done…nudge 2

Dear Glorious Natural Friends

This lovely animal entered my spirit team today….she has guidance.

Harness everything available to humans. Do not think on just Angels, or therapists, or Doctors, or Tarot, or Astrology….BE open.

Yes the moons energy, yes to guidance from source…yes to your own personal influences.

Harness everything. And now listen.

She is calm and firm, gracious yet determined. Her words…spot on. On point.

She is leading by example, I follow too….I don’t just chuck out the advice ya know 😉

In general, the focus of antelope meaning is action.

Therefore, now is the time to act!

There is a new path on offer, use your keen eyesight to find the way.

Antelopesy symbolism reminds you to make your decisions wisely by using your instincts rather than your intellect.

Follow your gut feelings and quickly make up your mind.

In fact, you can adapt to any situation right now so that you can move forward with your purpose.

Today she and I will not use many many words. Words you can get lost in, overthink, come full circle and pat your ego on the back.

Why….action. Instinct, then Action.

So close yours eyes.

Take a moment.

Just one.

It’s likely her eyes will simply appear in your mind.

Now snap…eyes open.

Get bloody going. Action.

I did. The benefit ripples beyond the immediate, as will yours.

Come on, spit spot. Today set your intention for action. At least on tangible choice made.

Share if you wish.

With love

Get it done…nudge 1

My sweet friends

We are all hanging back aren’t we.

Taking any chance any excuse to not ‘get it done’.

Yes we are in Mervury retrograde…yes we just be mindful.  Conscious and aware of everything.  We should check and double check.

We should be mindful. Be conscious of the now.

But.  I…we…never said hide under the covers. Frozen in place.

Don’t move….if I keep still nothing will happen.

Well correct. Nothing will happen.

And this BE good is it…

Getting it done, may simply mean truly owning and facing what you hide from.  Acknowledging.  Owning. Accepting.

Getting it done, may simply mean upon the above…you make a plan to ‘get it done’.

Getting it done, may simply mean after all of the above….you GET IT DONE.

Me too child. Me too child.

I promise to all that is me, today I will embark upon ‘Get it done’.

Please now read the next post in which the lovely Antelope spirit animal came and joined me. She spoke.  I heed.

I hope you heed too.

Mercury retrograde will be impacting you…come and read..

Dear Universal Planetary Friends

Mercury.  My ruling planet.

I probably think about Mercury retrograde more than the average person. That’s partially because I write about spirit, the Universe and Energy.  And I joined this world in this body as a Gemini, and one born on the cusp and the solstice.  To say I am impacted….well, indeed. Part of my path.

But I also just worry about the transit. I never want to be caught unawares. Weeks ahead of certain events — my birthday, a road trip, my big moving day — I’ll quickly check to see if a retrograde is coming. So this year, I decided to get ahead of the game and look up each and every time the speedy planet will be doing its backwards dance this year, so I can fully prep myself

Mercury is known as the Planet of Communication, and when it goes retrograde, our connections can get pretty wonky, causing confusion and glitches in technology. The reason Mercury retrograde gets so much hype is because “our society is highly dependent on technology, so when a text or an email gets lost, or our computer crashes, we are highly inconvenienced.”  Remwmber I left for a while due to phone issues, laptop and app issues. Yep, hello Zowie over here displaying typical retrograde impacts.  (Phone still having to be restarted a dozen times a day.  Good news upgrade available tomorrow…or is it 🤷‍♀️)

Mercury goes retrograde three to four times a year — more than any other planet. This year, thankfully, it moves backwards just three times.

Mercury also retrogrades in just one element every year, and this year it’s happening in air signs. Its important to note. “Instead of analyzing Mercury retrogrades alone, they all form part of an overall story,”  It also means that we will be working with the energies that relate to that element in particular. 

Mercury retrogrades in air signs affect us on a more intellectual and mental level, compared to when Mercury retrogrades in the other elements.

May 29 to June 22, in Gemini. The pre-retrograde shadow begins on May 14, and the post-retrograde shadow ends on July 7.

September 27 to October 18, in Libra. The pre-retrograde shadow begins on September 6, and the post-retrograde shadow ends on November 2.

For fairness’s sake, I have to point out that Mercury retrogrades aren’t all that terrible. They can even be positive.

“It’s is a time to slow down, to revisit, redo, and rethink plans or projects.  In a fast-paced culture like ours, that is seen as negative, when the truth is it offers us a chance to fix projects and situations that actually needed revision in order to be successful.”

So while marking down these transits in your 2021 planner can help you prepare and get through them more easily, recognize that it’s not just a time of chaos and destruction — it can be a time of growth too.

Acceptance. Stay in the middle.

Dear Sweet Striding Friends

Rapids or Flatwater? Which Sounds More Peaceful? 

With regards to personal peace, we try to hold onto gratifying things that come our way and push away things we have an aversion to.

The fact is it’s all the same change, completely impersonal, constant, continuous change, change that is ultimately and primarily sponsored by the balance of nature.

There is seldom anything we can do about it. Did you ever notice that when we exert force or try to control what’s happening, things tend to blow up in our face?

We can all do ourselves a favor and learn to practice equanimity.  

Equanimity is another word for letting the river flow. The river flows whether we love it or hate it.  

Trying to hold on (attraction) to someone or something is like swimming in a river, grabbing on to the rocks, trying to stop as the current pulls us down… we get all beat up.  

Pushing away something we don’t want (aversion) is like fighting the current, trying to swim upstream. We are trying to counter the natural flow of life. Our best bet is learning to stay in the middle, letting the current pull us where it will and flow (acceptance) with that which is immediately in front of us.  This is equanimity.

Stay in the middle.  Acceptance.

Trust Nature

Nature is a highly organized, brilliant system of balance that provides for itself and has for millions of years. It is providing for us in exactly the same way if we can just notice we are not separate from nature, surrender to this fact, get on and enjoy the ride or you can remain separate and suffer a lot if you so choose.

It turns out resistance actually is futile. Non-acceptance is resistance. Spend your energy on acceptance of what appears to be good as well as bad.

When a big storm comes through, nature does not resist. The big storms pass.  They bring blessings and destruction. Acceptance of what we term “bad” as well as what we term “good” is the key to happiness.  

Have you ever noticed when you look around at nature there is as much death as there is life, and death is an absolute requirement so life can continue?  We don’t see anything wrong with nature and death is everywhere. So why do we have so much fear and resistance around death? Look at the soil, constantly, continuously the cycle of death and new life.  We are not in any way separate from this perfect-precision built system, Nature.  Eventually, we recognize that everything about ourselves is in that same continuous state of flux as nature and we can decide to be in surrender (acceptance) to this fact or not.

Let the River Flow

Whichever Higher Power we choose to surrender to, call it nature if this isn’t a spiritual thing to you, it is doing a fine job managing all of what truly needs to happen for us and always has. This is not always evident to us at first.  We can’t always understand exactly what is happening that actually is in our best interest at the moment. Nearly always, in retrospect however, we can see what happened to us and recognize how, in the long run, it was indeed for the best, or at least inevitable. Eventually, when we have seen this enough we develop a new capacity; the capacity for applied faith in the nature of things in which we always play a part.

Today I speak not as spirit…but its subliminal.  All I speak of above in the physical ties inline with all I speak and know about your entire spirit self. Its reasons for choosing your soul to visit in this lifetime…for choosing its set of lessons of great learning.  For further ascension in the Universe beyond all you know today.

Are you ready to let the river flow?

I realise today’s posts will hold questions. Pop them down and I will come as I can.
