Are you psychically gifted but receiving too much information, all the time? How do you control the flow of information during the course of a day? Do you begin to tune in to other people like at the mall or grocery store, even though you haven’t been asked to do a reading for someone? What do you do if a deceased person pops up during a conversation with someone? Should you tell the living what their dead are saying?
Receiving communication from the other side is a gift, in my opinion, however you must be the one who decides when that communication takes place. Being too open is like leaving your front door unlocked and ajar; the deceased are going to push their energy at you whenever they see you can get a message to a living loved one.
When I first started my work as a medium, I was open all the time. Once I was chatting with the check out girl at a clothing store and her deceased grandmother started going on about how her granddaughter was going to give birth to a girl and name it after her. At dinner one night with a couple, I saw the woman’s deceased father standing behind her and he had a lot to say about his death and his children. Back then I blurted out everything as it came to me. But one day I got information for a woman who didn’t want to hear from her deceased abusive husband. I realized that not everyone is open to this sort of communication, so I stopped doing “drive by” readings.
The way I stopped receiving unwanted communication when I wasn’t working was thanks to my conduit guide Bob. Bob is the guide who acts like a bouncer. The only way a spirit can communicate with me now is if Bob lets him through. On some occasions a strong and powerful spirit will get my attention when I’m not working, but it’s usually pretty important or urgent or Bob wouldn’t have let them through.
If you don’t have a conduit guide, and I highly suggest you have one if you are a medium, then you’ll need to work on tuning out the constant influx of information. You’ve got to turn off the psychic radio when you’re not working or wanting the information. You can do this by pulling your chakras in tighter. One of the reasons you’re getting so much information all the time is probably because your chakras are open too wide. Your energy is brushing up against people’s auras and you’re getting an instant download about that person’s life. Keeping your chakras open that wide can have unwanted side effects, as you can inadvertently take on the negative emotions of another person.
Also, stop using your psychic radio like a police scanner. Most people new to psychic abilities scan every channel all the time. They do this unconsciously. This is one reason why negative and lower vibrational beings can bug you; you’re tuned in to their channel. You’re allowing your “radio dial” to be pulled to a lower channel just because something is being broadcast. Learn to be discerning.
Learn to tune in only when asked or when the situation is urgent or important. Get with a conduit guide who will agree to filter out the riff raff so you get communication when you want with who you want. Pull in your chakras so you’re not empathically detecting every little issue with people you pass on the street.
If you do receive communication you feel is really important, you’ll have to learn to be very sensitive to how you pass on the information. Some people think mediums work for the Devil, so if you blurt out your information, instead of being grateful you may get someone making the sign of the cross at you. If I’m with someone who knows I’m a medium, I will usually say, “Oh I seem to be in contact with someone who would really like to pass on a message to you. Would you like to hear it?” I’ve actually had people politely decline, but most of the time they are eager to hear the information. If I’m with someone who does not know me and does not know I’m a medium, I usually keep my mouth shut, plus these situations don’t come up so much now that I have Bob standing guard.
Psychic work can be energetically draining, and mediumship more so. You’ve got to guard your own energy. To the other side, you’re walking around with a little light above your head that conveys, “I’m on and I can hear you.” The deceased will flock to you if you you’re not careful so that you will pass on messages to their living loved ones. You must be the one who decides what information gets through. If you don’t control the information and when it comes through, it can overwhelm you and cause you to become very unbalanced. When this happens a lot of psychics try to turn off their abilities. Instead I simply recommend becoming the commander in chief of your ability. Take responsibility for the gift, and learn how to use it properly.
