Mediumship has been around for a long time, ever since people understood there was more than just the physical world. As a result, mediumship today can be explained as the method in which a spirit personality used a person as vessel or tool to speak, cause things to happen, channel energy, or make the spirit available for analysis.
There are few key elements in the mediumship definition above. First, there needs to be a proactive relationship between the spirit and the person who is going to be vessel or tool. Second, there’s a reason present why that relationship exists and is used by both entities. These reasons can include a need to share information to those in the physical world, a need to cause physical things to a happen which are described as paranormal, a need to make energy changes occur, or a need to become present in the physical world some how some way. In every situation, mediumship has to have an earth/physical channel and a spirit entity involved.
There are technical distinctions in how a person who channels is used by a spirit as well. Those who are used for communication by a spirit are known as spirit communicators. Alternatively, those who channel and are used to make energies change or transfer are dubbed spirit operators.
Mediumship Channeling Differences
When mediumship occurs primarily with a mental communication, the medium or channel will be the one to experience or feel the spirit involved. Others can only go by what the medium is saying or seems to be experiencing visually. As a result, the medium tends to know the most of what’s going on, and witnesses are entirely reliant on the medium for an explanation.
On the other hand, when a physical mediumship is involved, there is a visual manipulation of physical surroundings and environmental energies. As a result, the interaction is visible and experienced by both the medium and witnesses. The type of experience or specifics will vary, depending on the medium and spirit involved, but it’s clear to everyone present an involvement occurs when the mediumship is happening.
Understanding that mediumship has different levels and conditions goes a long way towards gaining a better perspective of the connection process. Unlike what Hollywood like to make the connection out to be, mediumship can provide a number of different experiences. How those experiences are interpreted then defines the value of the process for people who need information as well as the spirit involved and its needs.
