Hello A,

Thank you for your question. I have taken time to ponder upon what from the outset appears a simple response; however I feel there is greater depth and content required on this subject.

First of all I must confirm that you have provided very little content and with this type of question I confess that my answer is from a wholly literal perspective. In short I don’t know you personally; also I wish not to fall into a trap many find themselves in, one where judgement is made by people who, at best, should reserve their opinions to themselves. On this point I would rather use the old adage ‘even God doesn’t judge, it is we who ultimately judge ourselves – for God he is the one who permits’. Simple words, yet words with greater depth when you open out your thought process ...............................

In respect of your terminology about your spiritual bookings ‘drying up’, this is nothing uncommon. It happens to all of us from time to time. Nonetheless, there are a number of reasons why bookings can become less. Generally, if the standard of mediumship we see today is anything to attribute by, ‘quality’ is the least likely reason. Often it is the booking secretaries who are instigators of the poor standards we encounter. Whether a person ‘fits-in’ or will save the booking secretary time or problems by taking a vast amount of spiritual meetings in a given period of time. Perhaps it is all down to personalities? Yet one of the greatest barriers and holders back of spiritual work is jealousy – a deadly disease sadly one which roots are like tentacles squeezing out the life-blood of spirituality. We are in changing times, like the movement of the pendulum, spirituality perpetually moving from truth to religion. Today, we are in the grasps of almost a religious fever. Why? Simple look at religion through the years, turn the pages of history and you will soon realise that for all the promise, the lure of power is an aphrodisiac which strangles the life blood of spirituality. For me, I prefer my spiritual work to be spiritual; so your reference to protocol: one presumes it has gone out of the proverbial window.

You infer within your text something which is the vital ingredient for ‘all true’ spiritual mediums; the word is ‘sensitivity’. Sensitivity is a fundamental ingredient within the make-up of spiritual mediums. Without it, you will not aspire to mediumship. But, sensitivity and awareness become the opposite ends of the spectrum – either giving rise to ‘gift or curse’. Even Hollywood films depict this dichotomy. I would assume you are mediumistic, having received this divine gift. Like all of us, you are going through one of those difficult periods of your unfoldement. As I am sure you are aware, no one is fully developed, we all experience the ups and downs of life. Years ago, a medium told me ‘all mediums have to suffer, with problems, pain, etc to gain and develop their gifts’, absolute and total rubbish. The same opinion I have of the medium you mention within your question. I might wager another person with little or no knowledge – dangerous when we are working with other people’s emotions, sensitivity and feelings.

In conclusion, I would suggest you listen within yourself, open your mind and hold faith. All mediums, me included, have the same problems, and yes, we all have times when another avenue of spiritual work seems better. We get over it and move forward; this is my recommendation to you. One final thought. About four years ago I was in West Yorkshire taking a spiritual meeting on a Sunday evening. At the end of the service, the congregation in unison all applauded, the chairperson said: ‘on a Sunday evening I’ve never heard that before and I’ve been coming here for 50 years.’ I’m still waiting for the booking secretary to ask for another booking. If it were not for inner-strength, it would make you weep!

I wish you well as the old saying went: ‘you have now joined the club’.

Kindest thoughts of light and spiritual opportunity

Stephen

Disclaimer:

With all questions; I take the standpoint that of my answers are generic, as such I take a literal view of the content. In short, I do not give reference to individuals mentioned within the text, or with limited facts, assimilate information about those who have passed into light. The reason is simple. No one person can be in contact with everyone who has passed into eternity, so my answers are general in their structure and composition and reflect a metaphoric answer.
