The benefits of mediumship most definitely outweigh the burdens. Life can be enhanced with a new purpose of meaning and certainly motivation. You really start to feel you have an idea of the whole purpose of life, how many people search for the answers to life often as they get older and never come up with any answer?
Being a medium starts to make you thin about god, the age old questions of why are we here? Why are some people rich or poor? Why is there good or evil? Mediumship is a good way to find out lots of answers to the ever green questions of life. In many ways leading a life linked to the spirit side becomes a major part of your life and will encroach on your time, yet a life of service as it is known is one of the most rewarding things you can give to society. Giving evidence that lost loved ones live on and want to communicate with us gives so many people in pain a lot of comfort. Seeing the tears of joy on a persons face especially when the spirit presence becomes obvious is beyond measure.
All spiritual gifts have to be earned. It is gods will that we are permitted to commune with the spirit side, a mediums life gains growth through experience just like everyone else in any other situation. The set path for any mediums development is always different just like the psychic readings and mediums readings industry which is huge and global, it shifts and alters from time to time. The spirit guides know what's best for us mediums more than we do.
Control is a very important thing and also self discipline as the information must be correctly presented and the evidence must be concrete and correct, ego's need to be put aside and the information should be given directly as it is given from the spirit guides.
Everything in life has a price, cause and effect. To succeed in life requires work and input, god helps those who helps themselves as it is also true that the devil makes work for idle hands. The time of learning and training for a medium is no different to the application one undertakes to learn a new skill, become qualified in order to follow a particular path or profession.
The great late medium of our times Gordon Higginson was a highly gifted spiritualist medium, a great speaker teacher of our times. His birth was pre-ordained by spirit and his mediumship gifts were renowned for the accuracy of his platform mediumship and his evidence often included full names of the deceased, address details and even telephone numbers. Gordon was also a brilliant physical medium and produced the highly rare phenomena of materialisation and direct voice which are highly rated mediumship skills. He was one of the few physical mediums to demonstrate these unique gifts to the general public often to audiences of over 300 people.
A short exert from an article written by Gordon Higginson tells us:
'Men and women are spiritual beings that cannot conform to man-made creeds. God calls to us to play a part. Once we are brought into Spiritualism we accept that responsibility. If we set it aside then we suffer in conscience in the spirit world.
Spiritualists will bring happiness upon the earth. There must be a coming together of people who feel responsible for each other. We can create heaven upon earth. The Spirit world is already here; all worlds interpenetrate each other, nothing dies.'
