Those who have physically died continue to live eternally in the spirit realms and are extremely interested in what happens here in the physical world. They are waiting patiently to be contacted by mediums who can deliver messages of wisdom.
Mediums generally bring ‘proof of spirit survival’ changing a person from a non-believer in life-after-death to a believer.
In ancient times, 'proof of survival' mediumship did not exist. It did not need to. Everyone believed in the afterlife because they were closer to the subtle realms than we are in the busy world of the 21st century.
In ancient times, a type of mediumship existed which we now call ‘channeling’. Prophets, shamans and sibyls heard the voice of an ‘angel' or the voice of ‘God’. It instructed them to do something very important for their family, tribe or society. Channelling involves contacting angels, ascended masters and elevated spirits who have particular specialities and who question, contest, insist, advise, guide and provide wisdom on a personal and societal level.
Both types are valuable, The 'proof of spirit survival' and providing wisdom from spirit. Proof of survival from mediumship - life wisdom from channelling.
The two types of mediumship are separated to make sure people understand that channelling is not about providing 'proof of survival'.
Tarot readers, palmists, diviners of all types access spirit wisdom whether they know it or not. We are all using psychic abilities everyday without awareness, intuition, deja vu, coincidence, etc., are all arranged by spirit.
If you would like to learn to channel angels, ascended masters and spirit wisdom keepers, the best method is to do so within a group. It is possible to learn how to channel, heal and divine from a book. 'The Lightworkers Circle Guide - A Workbook for Spiritual Groups' by Wendy Stokes provides instruction and tutorials on how to access healing, divination and channelled messages from the spirit realms. www.wendystokes.co.uk
