Spirit Guides And Becoming A Medium


I have been running a successful business for some time now, with little thought for religion or the spiritual realm. Several years ago my beloved grandmother died and I read Allison Dubois' first book for comfort and did nothing more in that regard until very recently.

A few months ago, I began thinking of my grandmother a lot for comfort and to feel her near me during my day-to-day grind. I felt the urge to buy and read Ms Dubois' second book, read it over 24 hours and then began incessantly calling my grandmother to visit me in my dreams.

She responded, only she visited my mother in her dream state instead. At around the same time, she began leaving me indications of her presence in my daily life - such as reminders of butterflies, which we all associated her with.

What followed then however, were a series of daily and fortunate 'coincidences', that were happening to me so frequently, that I began to attribute this to the spiritual realm in general, all the while wondering: "Why me?"

I began surfing the internet for clues and instantly came across the Zener cards idea. I got some blank business cards and wrote the same signs on them to test my clairvoyant ability, really as a bit of a laugh. I was floored to discover that with enough patience, I was seeing the shapes on the upturned cards being drawn in my mind.

I ordered John Edward's 6 CD Psychic Powers set, in which he told me to try tarot cards. I remembered that I had a set of tarot cards and a book tucked away somewhere that I had never used. I have now been using them at every spare moment for the past two weeks, because what I believe to be my spirit guides are literally training me in my development through them.

The consistent accuracy of the cards was a shock at first, but surprisingly, I have now become quite used to asking my spirit guides questions about any old thing by consulting my tarot cards! I have even asked them if they think I'm a pest, but they have been really nice about it.

Just to make sure that I am not completely delusional, I have done some readings for three people I know, who have all walked away completely shocked at the accuracy and detail they received from me. I just said: "But I'm just the messenger!"

My problem is that my progression has not been easy. Through it all I have been suffering from lack of sleep, as I have been struggling to get to grips with every new amazing and foreign change as it happens to me. I have no family history of psychic ability that anyone is aware of, apart from the grim fact that my grandfather, now deceased, went mad because he kept seeing evil spirits. Consequently, apart from my spirit guides, who I am overworking, I am completely alone in all of this.

Over the last few days, I have been wanting more from my spirit guides, so recently, I assigned the letters of the alphabet to my tarot cards, normal and reversed, to see if they would communicate with me in full and accurate sentences. But they either would not, or could not communicate with me in this way. I pestered them about this one as well, as it seems perfectly plausible to me under the circumstances. But they have said that it is too dangerous to communicate in this way and they have told me off for being obstinate, all through the tarot cards.

I know that the next step should be for me to meditate, but I am simply too wound up to get there, because of work commitments and my general fear of getting through all of this psychic stuff.

My spirit guides have repeatedly reminded me about my sleep deprivation and my inability to move forward in a peaceful way and they have said so again now. Only now, they are making it clear that I need outside help. I asked them if I could Ms Dubois about it, as I am very aware that she is extremely busy and in response my spirit guides were very encouraging over it.

I now want to be a medium. My spirit guides have said that I have the potential and that I am due for a dramatic career change. I just don't know how to get there in a way that is not detrimental to my health.

It is also difficult to obtain absolute certainty about the significance of my tarot spreads and by whom, if at all, are they being controlled. In other words, there are times I am confident and others where I am plagued with doubt over it all, despite all the indicators.

Some advice from an experienced psychic would certainly be greatly appreciated. I really would appreciate some kind of a mentor to help me decipher between fantasy and reality, as not surprisingly with no conclusive scientific evidence out there, this field is so hard to pin down.

Thank you

Don't open a door to an unspecified 'spirit guides' that you might not be able to close... Even demons can tell you stuff that's going on in other far away places, because as spirits, they can travel in the blink of an eye! But that doesn't mean we should trust them! JESUS NEVER COMMUNICATED WITH SPIRIT GUIDES through seances, tarot, ouija board, or through channeling with a psychic medium. These are all FORBIDDEN occult practices! These spirits can, and will defile your precious soul and body, if you give them half the chance! You have been WARNED! If you put your hand in the fire, you'll get burned! Curiosity killed the cat! Good luck! God bless! Timfaraos [at]

Hi, I have lost all 4 grand parents, my brother at the age of 31 and last year my friend. I would give anything to be able to see or talk to them again. I miss my brother everyday and sleep with his shirt and work shorts under my pillow everynight. I always talk to them and feel them around me but I don't know if that's just wishfull thinking.

i am going through a spiritual experience that I do not understand. The only way I can describe it is that my spirit guide is putting me through my past. Ahe makes me feel like my old self much of the time. She says that it is for some type of healing and that there is a name for what I am going through but it is very rare and when it is time for me to have the name of it she will lead me to it. I as just wondering if anyone knows what I am talking about. Thanx

Hi there, you sound like me, recently I had a spiritual attachment and a flat full of lost souls who contacted me. I at first was so afraid, I thought I was going mad but I knew that I wasn't. I bought crucifixes, went to church and all sorts haha! However I met with a medium who told me that although I am accurate I get involved a bit too much and learn to say no or later at a specific time when you meditate or you will be bothered by spirits continously. I still haven't mastered shutting down because my thoughts are so erratic and I am rebellious by nature so I need to find a way to actually shut down and not keep thinking about it. If anyone has any advice on this please let me know:)

Many blessing to you Phoebe, You sound at peace and I believe the Creator is with you and your path you wish to give out of loving place. It truly sounds like a positive road. On your Grandfathers mental illness, not to worry! People who have sight: stand between the 2 worlds. Had a patient in ER room say as I went by, "there goes the Healer"! That pt was checked for 24hr psychiatric evaluation. On Descendants sounds like you've linked in and they are very powerful. Found out late in life, because no one spoke there is American Indian. So what is not spoken is felt through the DNA! Blessing to you and I rejoyce with you...

I would really like to engage you in a dialogue either here on this web site or email me direct to michaeljaffrayk [at]
Look forward to hearing from you soon.

Hi, this is Phoebe. Thankyou both for your comments.

I have since faired better sleepwise because I have registered for a correspondence course with the Spiritual Institute of Australia, which teaches me about developing the 5 senses through tarot. I have been consistently been consulting the tarot as events have been unfolding and now have absolutely no doubt either that I am being driven by divine intervention, which is extremely direct I might add! However, I accept it and know that I will have a better life because of it. Beautiful Day - your direction is thought provoking and practical - thankyou.

Hello, Hope all is well. Gave your story another over look. You could try a weekend intro to mediumship. The issue with learning is all people operate differently. Primarily learning to open up to spirit. A medium once opened radiates energy out much differently than a healer. They are enlarging their aura to accomodate through guide/or deceased whom is comming thru. Their energy is very light and subtle.
1) is Direct communication with the Deceased whom is trying to come thru. 2) Is your guide whom supports us in processing information. 3rd Clairvoyance: see Wikipedia free encyclopedia.
There is a saying! There is death and life and love is the bridge that crosses over. So loved ones do present themself to us when we need help or assistance. But they have their own growth process they must attend to.
Blessing to you!

Hi Phoebe
I have absolutely no doubt as to the authenticity of your experiences. There is an enormous spiritual world all around us. Without realising it we are influenced by this world. It is great that you are waking up to this fact and that is why this website is so awesome. Most people do not even consider the spiritual world and go instead blindly down the physical one for all their life. Sad!
One thing I couldn't help noticing is the negative down side to all of these experiences. Your Grand Father went mental.
You are losing sleep. Plus many more and thousands of books all telling you how to cope with the downside.
As a committed Christian I can only tell you that the chief of all spirits, The Holy Spirit is the most awesome of all. He doesn't have one down side. A simple Child like faith in Jesus Christ gives one more power than all the others put together. One receives a commodity which in this world is in very short supply and that is Agape LOVE.
He gives us Abundant Life with a capital L.
I can tell you lots more about this if you want. Quite understand if you are not interested. Christian mystics have been able to bilocate. Fly. See into the future and much more. However all these christian experiences are alway I repeat always designed to help others. By helping others one gets a spiritual high that is indescribably beautiful. I am not kidding. I know. Look forward to hearing from you

Hello, Hoping you are getting some sleep!
They are right about the sleep and shutting down properly. To stay healty in your aura, other wise you open up to illness and mental deterioration. A good book is by Tony Neate: "Channelling for everyone", he speaks of protection and grounding which are the basics to opening and with out it one can run into problems. Ted Andrews book: How to meet & work with spirit guides," explains more details of requiring proper exercises to strengthen the aura. If you find you do not have time for meditation try walking meditation, or gathering energy. Again I can't emphasize enough, "all people must meditate,open,ground,close. If you want more leave you e-mail address, I will contact you.
