Mediumship – Guest Post by Kerry-Marie Callander
I often get asked to do Mediumship Readings, but they aren’t my forte. My go to person is Kerry-Marie Callander who is an awesome Medium. I asked her to write an article for my website.
This week I was asked by Auckland University of Technology to come in to assist some of their students who were putting together a T.V documentary on the paranormal and they wanted a medium to come in to be interviewed.
The whole experience was fun and exciting and I would love to do something like this again. Apart from the fact I had far too much make up on and looked like a clown and realised why T.V employ make-up artists just for people on camera.
Thye had someone from “Spookers” demonstrating how to put on “spooky makeup” and then some people who talked about someone who had put graphite all over headstones in a graveyard and how disrespectful this was for the dead.
Before you knew it, the cameras were on me and I was interviewed and questions were ‘fired at me’. I thought it all went pretty well until I left and realised I had not really hit the ‘nail on the head’ when it came to the big question on mediumship.
The question put to me was “How can speaking to the dead, help people”?
Mmmm I wasn’t expecting this question and answered “well you can ask the spirits to help you in your life just like you did when you were alive and they will help” and the person interviewing me seemed pretty happy with my answer, but afterwards I realised I wasn’t completely happy with the answer I gave.
So if I could go back in time what would I answer now:
“People pass over for a number of reasons ranging from such as: illness, accident , drowning, war, sucide ,murder, old age etc”. When someone goes to the other side the people left behind are left with many questions and often grief that they now have to process. Sometimes there is unfinished business and feelings of sadness, guilt, relief, even anger, lowliness, disbelief, anxiety, depression etc. They also want to know that the person who has passed over is ok and has arrived safely. They simply just want to know that they are ‘somewhere’.
Through the gift of mediumship and being able to communicate with the “so called dead’ I can help others with the questions they have and to let them know their loved one is ok and that they have arrived safety. Also the discarnate being may have unfinished business and they want to resolve things with the living so they can move on with their next journey. With the evidence given from the discarnate being through a medium it often proves survival of the human soul.
Unresolved issues and feelings of guilt, and anger can be addressed and sometimes the discarnate being just wants to say “thank you”. It is quite beautiful and satisfying to see this process.
They often have positive messages for us and they can help us with things in our lives but the first stage is by far the most important and that is there is no death, there is an after life and you will see your loved one again.
The role of a medium is to prove life after physical death and continuation of the human soul. This is huge when assisting loved ones left behind with the process of dealing with their grief.
