Cynical skeptics in mediumship are the Grinches of Christmas. I rarely address them in my blog, simply because they are who they are, they believe as they will, and I have no agenda to convince them of anything. But when there's a perfect opportunity to poke a little fun at a Grinch who had a little change of heart, I can't resist.
And in my best Dr. Seuss:
The Whos down in Whoville heard the Grinch's heart grew
But only one size, and it needs another two!
This Grinch takes much longer, that's what we know
But we won't be worrying, because deep in the snow
His heart will be softening, like cold butter on warm bread
And he'll be at the table, putting out the big spread
Communication between people on the Earth plane is full of misinterpretations, misunderstandings, and errors. Communication between mediums and spirits is similarly problematic. Here is a good article about what it can be like for those of us who are mediums that care about doing quality work, and how we might feel when things don't go as well as we wish they did.
The article also has a great description of what spirit communication is like (or can be like) for a medium. Aimee uses a number of images to convey what it's like, which works, but you could conclude that it only works this way on the visual side of the house (clairvoyance). But the general idea applies to clairaudience and clairsentience as well - we get flashes of sound and feelings, just like we get flashes of images.
I thought about how to characterize the article, and the best, most accurate, and only thing that came to me is a sweatshirt turned inside out. The article is written from the inside out, just like a sweatshirt. Ok, it's not the most flowery of analogies, but it fits really well (pun intended!).
Nonetheless, Thanksgiving is a day for giving thanks. Thank you Aimee.
Here's an article that describes what mediumship is like for a medium. It's written as an interview with Reverend Celeste Elliott. It's a great article. I like how it doesn't have any of the junk that occupies many articles, such as "balanced" debates about whether it's real or not, a Hollywood sense of amazement, or other distortions.
I love the elevator explanation. I've been looking for a response to the question of what it's like to perceive spirits, and the elevator explanation is great. Thank you Reverend Elliott!
It's worth reading.
