Hello everyone. I hope your summer has been going wonderfully so far.
Last weekend we went on a camping trip by the Oregon coast. We played games and indulged in ice cream sundaes and treats. We were right by the ocean so we played on the beach, and on our way home we stopped at a river to go swimming. It felt amazing to connect to the energy of water again. Water, especially the ocean and rivers, can be very cleansing energetically. It can help to release the old in order to make room for the new in your life. I've been feeling lots of shifts myself lately, and was happy to let the water wash away anything that no longer serves me so that I can more fully step into the changes coming up.
One such change I've decided on is that I will no longer be offering psychic readings as a service in and of itself. That means that I will only be offering mediumship readings and animal communication as services (along with animal reiki of course). In a mediumship reading we might go into topics that are typically talked about in psychic readings (such as the client's life etc), but it probably won't be the main focus of the session. The reason for this is that I don't find plain psychic readings as exciting any more. I simply feel more passion towards mediumship and animal communication right now.
The main difference between psychic readings vs mediumship readings, is that with mediumship I am communicating with your passed loved ones, and with psychic readings I might look at the energy of your life: past, present, and future. With mediumship, there's a lot of healing happening, but your loved ones might also bring up things going on in your life presently or they might bring up things coming up in the future, but it's typically not the focus of the session (although, you never know with Spirit). Out of the two types, mediumship readings is where I find I can be of best service, and so that's where I want to focus my energy (along with animal communication of course).
One of my closest friends laughed when I told her my plan to change my offerings, because she knows that there were so many times that I toyed with the idea of giving up mediumship instead and sticking only to psychic readings. Did you know, that even though mediumship was the first type of reading that I properly learned, and it was always something I adored, it was also the one that I always resisted the most? Not because I was ever bad at it, but because I didn't see myself as a medium.
For the longest time, I resisted doing mediumship readings professionally. I was so intimidated by the grief people feel in someone's passing, that it felt like too much pressure. I felt like I was trespassing on that grief by doing a reading for them (even though they were the ones scheduling the session with me).
I resisted it by thinking of myself as more of a psychic than a medium. I resisted owning the title of "medium", even long after I started my business as a psychic medium. I was so nervous anytime someone would schedule a mediumship session with me. I hid behind my psychic readings.
It was a slow transition to seeing myself as a medium over the years. I slowly began to do more and more mediumship, and less of the psychic readings, but I still wasn't fully owning the medium part of me. I think my real healing came after I started doing larger mediumship audience readings a year ago. I finally began saying "Oh, OK, I guess I am a medium". I think I kind of assumed that most of my audience readings would be more psychic in nature, as opposed to Spirits coming through. Turns out Spirit really wanted to connect through me, even in front of an audience. Isn't it strange how we don't accept obvious things about ourselves, or refuse to see it, even long after we've started doing it?
And now, mediumship is one of the things that brings me the greatest joy, and the healing that comes from it is my absolute favorite part of it. It doesn't replace the grieving process of course, but it can surely help it along a little, giving the client some peace and healing and faith that their loved ones are watching over them still. These changes that I'm making might not last forever of course. I might go back to offering psychic readings specifically as well, but for now, this change feels right to me.
I am of course still doing animal communication, with both living and passed animals. I think I might write another blog post soon about animals that pass, as I've been doing a lot of those readings as well lately.
Sending you all heaps of love and hoping we can all move forward into our truest selves!
