How To Access Your Inner Medium | John Capello
Accepting that you are psychic to some extent is an important step, but did you know that you are also a medium?
Learning to be psychic opens the doors of your consciousness and enriches your life. Being psychic allows you to be a medium.
What is mediumship and how do I get there?
A standard definition of mediumship and being a medium is that a person through the spirits of the dead is believed to be able to contact the living, according to Dictionary.combut this definition requires further explanation.
Mediumship or being a medium is not just about communicating with the spirits of the dead. The expanded definition is “to feel a presence beyond your personal space”.
This definition more accurately describes the abilities of a medium as there are other entities besides “spirits of the dead” that must be included.
Angels, guides, animal spirits, aliens and the feeling of powerful people who are alive appear around you. Projecting the energy of a living person around another individual is a valid application of the term mediumship.
The Difference Between Being a Psychic Vs. Mediumship
Psychic energy relates to the past, present and future around a person.
Reading the energy of an individual living around a client subject means you are reading a “presence beyond one’s personal space”, which is mediumship.
It is important to know this distinction because it is valuable in your development.
Here are 13 things you can do to access your psychic ability:
1. Answer the question, “Am I psychic first?”
Learning to be a medium means gaining an understanding of each of your psychic gifts. Understand the differences between each psychic ability.
It is a journey of self-discovery well worth exploring.
2. Recognize that each psychic sense has an extension of mediumship.
This means that you should be able to recognize and observe entities with your psychic feelings, sight, hearing, knowledge, scents and taste.
This is part of becoming a medium because you use your psychic skills to help you access your ability to be a medium.
3. Take note that your psychic abilities will allow you to analyze the “person or being” you are feeling.
The detail you receive with your psychic abilities will be improved. You will understand them better with your developed skills.
4. Meditate with a clear mind.
Meditation allows you to become a proof or spirit medium and have some control as you begin to access your medium skills. Create a safe environment to work with positive spirits and entities.
Ask your loved ones, guides and angels to come to you. Get to know your helpers who reside beyond the physical dimension.
5. Dwell on discerning the type of entity you are sensing.
Recognize the different energies projected by a person in spirit, an angel, a guide, an animal or other types of beings.
Psychics use this practice to better understand and hone their skills.
6. Set boundaries with other dimensions and beings.
Make it known that you are only interested in positive energy and beings that come to you. Inviting negativity to come to you is something you will regret!
There are enough things to go wrong in life without asking!
7. Journal your impressions and seek validation from others.
They may be able to give you specific information about the entity you believe contacted you. Be open to accepting spirits or entities during your conscious time and your unconscious time.
Your dreams are an additional source to learn more about your mediumship ability.
8. Pay attention to signals that come from other dimensions and your environment.
This is how you become aware of the presence of entities.
This is done by raising your psychic awareness and not dismissing unusual energies around you.
Increase your awareness of sentient entities. You can use crystals or be in a place where you think there are beings beyond your personal space.
9. Learn about other mediums, watch others use their gifts, or take a class with someone more advanced than you.
This allows you to better understand your own talent. Obtain readings from psychics to understand the mechanics of their gifts and apply them to you.
You may be a good medium, but you will never stop learning to sense a presence.
10. Practice building your skills with other people you trust.
When you work with others and receive their validation, you will develop trust and confidence in the information you pick up.
Be careful with the words you use to describe your impressions, because if someone claims you are inaccurate, it can hurt your confidence.
11. Learn to take care of yourself and your gifts.
Stay grounded, set limits, and don’t overuse yourself, because you can physically feel the effects of overwork.
Fatigue, headaches, feelings of depression, overeating, substance abuse, and other potentially destructive behaviors are often associated with psychics who don’t take good care of themselves.
12. Keep your gifts in perspective.
It’s easy to start believing that your gift of mediumship is a “superpower”, but you need to understand that you are only the guardian of the gift and not its owner.
Letting your ego take over is an abuse of the ability and it is good practice to be humble while using it.
13. Be responsible.
Good practice for a psychic is to only use the gift when appropriate, have good intentions, and not use it as a weapon to hurt others. You will meet people who are grieving and may want to keep a loss or situation private.
It is important that a person’s feelings are respected and your ability is used when permission is given to you by them.
Practice makes almost perfect.
The idea of learning about yourself is an essential area of your development, but to master your talent, you need to do a little more.

Observing, giving readings, and receiving readings are wise practices to follow during your internship and general practice of this gift. There will never be a time when you will know everything, so you will never be perfect.
This is why you will be a “practicing” spirit or proof medium.
Accuracy is the goal when using your psychic or mediumistic skills, but you will need to learn that your psychic and mediumistic impressions are interpreted by your experiences in your life.
It means you can recognize that an impression means something obvious to you but totally different to another person. It is the recipient of the information who determines the accuracy of the information you provide to them.
Adopt good habits when you become a medium
The habits you use to discover and access your inner medium are first to discover and use your psychic skills. You will need your psychic abilities to help you understand the entity you are sensing.
It’s learning to observe them and becoming familiar with how they work with you.
It is important to understand any messages an entity may be trying to communicate, and your developed psychic skills allow you to make precise discernments.
A good medium is attentive to his physical and psychic faculties. They are used to meditating, dwelling on beings beyond the physical, journaling, learning all they can about mediumship, and practicing.
Habits of taking care of yourself, keeping your feet on the ground, and being responsible when working with entities and clients are important.
The practices and habits of a good psychic take into account the vulnerabilities of those receiving a reading and should do their best not to harm a person seeking information from a deceased loved one or any other information they may receive.
Setting the right intention and careful use of your psychic medium gifts will allow you to grow and enrich your life and help others benefit from the messages you give them.
