The question of whether Mediumship disturbs the dead is an important one that I will attempt to answer because it concerns deeply rooted fears and concerns that have created a great deal of unsettled hearts.
The loss of a loved one can leave us reeling and longing to hear a message from them from the other side. We desperately want to know that they are OK and that they are still near.
The question is simple, yet powerful and frequently carries with it not only a threatening tone but condemnation and even the suggestion of dire consequences that may ensue if we attempt to contact the departed.
Throughout the centuries, the unknown or the afterlife, has been exploited in order to exert control over others. This has resulted in misconceptions and frozen fears, stifling the courage of many to explore the truth of a continuous life and a deeper, more clear understanding of a truly loving God.
Through the Gift of Mediumship, We Come to Know the Truth of an Afterlife
The fact is, that not one of us has full knowledge of the afterlife. But with soundly practiced experiential research, an openness to push the boundaries of our own understandings and a willingness to expose ourselves to scientific scrutiny, it is through the gift of Mediumship that we come to know that not only does the afterlife exist, we can communicate with our loved ones who are there.
It is through the blending of minds, the incarnate consciousness (that of the living) and the discarnate consciousness (that of the departed) that the exchange of real evidential information takes place and is revealed in a language of sensitivities and validated by family members and friends. It is also through that exchange that we are given a glimpse into the spirit world and come to know that our loved-ones are in a place of peace, of true understanding and exquisite intelligence. A place of an all-knowing creator and... creation itself.
It has been my experience that if the spirit wants to be known, they come through readily and choose to do so without hesitation. Apparently our free will does not end when we depart this world.
We cannot disturb those who do not wish to be disturbed. Nor are we disturbing our loved ones from some long sleep awaiting judgment. Our consciousness continues on in a place of peace and is alive and well ... and very active I might add, for the good of all life.
Our loved ones may come to further their own understanding in their continued progression. They may come for their own reformation or purity of heart. But whatever their reasons for coming, they come to us not out of evil but with a sincere love and concern for our well being. So no, we are not disturbing the dead.
Mediumship is God-Given
As mediums we are blessed with a god-given ability to communicate with the departed and for those of us who honor this gift fully, we serve with honesty, integrity and with humility, casting ego aside as we learn to love more deeply. We bring healing to the grieving and hope to those who have lost all faith. The call of a medium is to be the instrument of Gods’ heavenly message of love for us all and this we do for the greater good of others.
We serve those in Spirit for the sake of those still living.
