Do you believe that Spiritual Counselors (or Mediums) are for real?
I went to see one last night with my sister. She works the same way as John Edwards and some of the stuff she “sees” just blew me away. We never filled out any paperwork, no names were given and we paid cash for the reading (just to clarify). What’s your thinking of them?

Suggestion by Feona ~*~
some people are amazing with their insights arent they? I have met a few..and some are charlatans plain and simple. If you know a good one hang on to her….

Suggestion by M V
There is definitely some reality to what they “experience”, but they cannot offer any true reference for it, as they get their “power” and answers from a spiritual source that has its own agenda. It is also thereby dangerous both to them and anyone who “believes” in it. It’s kind of like laughing when someone pushes an old lady down, -that’s the wrong response, and you “empower” the person doing it. The best thing is to stay away from it all.

Suggestion by starkneckid
You’ve been had! John Edwards and his ilk are total fakes–and so is this medium!

If there are mediums (spiritual guides) how are they able to communicate with the deceased?
Shouldn’t the spirits either be in Heaver or Hell, so-to-speak?

Suggestion by RW
mediums definitionally are able to communicate with the dead…. I mean thats what mediumism is, is a sub-type of psychic who is able to communicate with the dead.

and your exact logic is why some do not belive. some christians think(incorrectly) that they talk to demons or something that are pretending to be the dead.

basically sometimes people do not move on properly, and hang around, (ghosts) and sometimes they return to visit. or give certain info to help people out.

edit: to below. nonsense. the real stuff is not a game or a parlor trick. the conditions given are specifically designed such that the real stuff would not be included as proof.

Suggestion by Mac Momma
Spirit Mediums are all fakes.

Randi has offered a one million dollar reward for any proof of paranormal powers.

It goes unclaimed.

Suggestion by chris j
if you are a strict christian then yes they should be in heaven or hell, or possibly trapped in their rotting bodies untill the rapture.

however we (the mediums and spiritualist’s) walk a different path.
my wife reads tatot cards and is a channeling medium. she does not talk to dead people, dead people (and sometimes evil spirits or demons) talk through her.

some folks simply are able to see and talk to the roaming spirits of the deceased.

each person is different, but watch out for frauds. they are all too common in the medium/ psychic world.

How spiritual is a Pope who hides child crimes from the secular police?
Apparently hidden child crimes were reported by the secular news media to the secular police.

Can the Pope who hid child crimes on purpose be considered to be a spiritual guru and role model for all of humankind?

    Lawsuits are springing up everywhere against priest who have molested children. The Pope himself has admitted that these crimes should no longer be hidden. It was actually priest that aren’t molesters that have insisted that this be brought to the forefront.

    Why do you have to be one or the other, why not a blend?

    By choosing one over the other you limit everything about you and put yourself into a box — unable to develop anything outside of it. Just go with it, educate yourself in what you’re most interested in, and consider yourself ‘eclectic’.

    you are you.

    i am druid. meaning, i search everything for everything trying to find something for me, even if that means throwing a little be of column a with column b,c,d, and e.

    study them all. what can it hurt? none, because you will be that much spiritually stronger, and you will study many things that can benifit you and help you get it all under control…

    you may be all of the above (shaman, witch, medium, chaneller) but dont catagorize your self and limit your potential knowlege that could be gained from studying all of them.

    my suggestion, dont just stop with those. keep learning. but that me :)

    Why chose just one? I am a shaman who is also clairvoyant and works with the Goddesses. Though I don’t see auras, I can feel and sense things. I also channel both in my own writing and in healing session with clients. All pretty cool stuff I feel sooo luck to do!

    I cultivated each as the opportunity came into my life. First step, find a good tool– like meditation, or journey work. Figure out which works best for you and dive on in!

    For me, I can’t meditate too well (all that quiet and concentrating makes me a lil “heady”) but once I was introduced to journeying, whole worlds opened up for me!

    To journey, make sure you first connect with your power animal or spirit guide who can act as both your protector and your tour guide to all the things you may encounter. Working with these teachers, they can also show you tools and techniques to help move you along on your path.

    A good mentor in this work too is also key so you have a safe place to ask questions and seek advice.

    Best of luck to you and remember these are not things that make us special, they are things that are meant to help people!

    I know what you mean! I hear spirits and have visions at random points (those of you who thinks it is because I am crazy or do drugs you are sooooo off) you are likely to be a Shaman. That’s what all your ability’s imply anyways!

  15. mournyngwolf says

    the best way is to actually have an oobe or astral project. in this way your spirit is suspended from the physical body and therefor in its own spirit body in the spirit body you are able to see and communicate with other spirit bodies. many do this at a place in faber virginia called the monroe institute in a program called lifelines. problem with this method is that it requires great practice and the fundamental understanding of how beliefs (repeatedly accepted thoughts) work. if you dont believe you can see certain things then at the spiritual level because of that belief you wont see those things.
    the next best level which is also at the level where your brain is functioning normally but your body is still out of the conscious loop. (body is asleep) then this is a trance state often brought on in a hypnotic way. (scrying into a reflective surface such as water, mirrors and crystal balls work like this) and some of the best ways of communication is the projection and recieving of images. pictures/feelings. john edwards and rosemary altea are examples of this. sylvia brown does several of these techniques.

    They don’t communicate with the dead, they communicate with Satan ( or other demons/dark angels) disguising himself as the dead.
    Which is why the Bible says that mediumism is bad.

  17. ArdentAngel says

    Heaven and hell are points of view, not places. Spirit is and always will be one with everything, so all who pass are still ‘here’ just in a different form. Communication with spirit isn’t all that hard, it’s just been made hard to find anyone to teach due to the power mongering involved with large churches. If churches were to tell the masses that everyone can talk to spirit and be saved directly from god, then how could they make all that money? But if you look, that is exactly what JC does say. You will do works like these and greater. No it’s not exactly the quote, but it is the gist. JC encouraged people to touch god for themselves and he (god forbid) included women in His ministry. These above all other works are why the Jews persecuted Him and His ministers. So, go pray and find your own spirit within.

    I don’t believe that the mediums or spiritual guides as they are referred to are actually communicating with the dead I believe it is demons of some sort playing off ppl.
    The dead are asleep until Judgement Day when it will be decided the fate of everyone on this planet. Then we will know either Heaven or Hell and that will be Gods decision.

    I do believe in some and I do believe some would like to think they know, but really who does know?
    Follow your own gut instinct, we can be or best judge at what’s real and what’s not.

    I myself have had some uncanny dreams, that have come true. Lots not even about me. We all have what is known as the third eye. Some more than others, just more open.

    1. I have seen a palm reader (she could tell me a lot about my past but was completely inaccurate about my future)

    2. I have seen a psychic (she was very accurate about my present relationships, but when she talked about my future I had the feeling she was making it up)

    3. I have seen a shaman. (totally awesome, very accurate, and answered all my questions; although at times was drawn out, he apparently “talked with my guides” and so through him I could talk with them.

    I think that spirits, mediums, or psychics can only see our past, past people we know etc. I think that they try to predict based on our past actions. Some people just can predict better because they are more experienced. I dont think its a power or influenced by anything evil. I think that we all have an ability to “know” more, we just really dont care about it. Also, I think that the reason it was fabricated as ‘evil’ is because its intruding, and it takes away from the psychic paying attention to their own life. Kinda like take the the plank out of your own eye before you take the sliver out of your brothers. Psychics should focus their energy inward.

    There are some who are real. There are some who are totally show. And some in between. I use my gut instinct on who I can trust. One thing’s for sure – a true medium will never seek to make you reliant upon them.
