| | Am I Psychic, yet not a Medium?
Thanks for sharing your experience with this workshop -- I'm living it through you vicariously.
A few things that really stood out for me:
That all mediums are psychics, but not all psychics are mediums. (Did I get that right?)
As you know, I specifically identify as a clairaudient intuitive -- although I'm actually beginning to realize that I am more clairvoyant than I may be giving myself credit for... My experiences as a medical intutive come through to the point of overwhelming me -- and I back off from bringing that in (for now, anyway).
The impulse to compare oneself to others who are like/different from you is strong -- and I personally find myself reflected in much of what you write about.
But I don't see dead people! (In the classic sense.) I have a few experiences that qualify, but the type of mediumship you/Gordon seem to be describing is something specific I don't do.
So, help me out, if you can, with this distinction (not that it ultimately matters, but...) I call what I do "relay" -- meaning I receive information from spirit guides in response to asking questions on a sitter's behalf, and I transcribe the conversation.
I feel like a court reporter, sometimes, or an old-fashioned Telephone Operator... I also recognize that what I do is most similar to a deep trance channeler, without the deep trancey, possessy part...
Other psychics have told me that I am an "open channel" -- meaning, I suppose, that I can receive similar forms of information, to the same degree, from just about anyone I focus it toward...
We all enjoy the labels, even as we try to transcend them. My philosophy is collage all the best parts of what fits -- the reality of who you are is a bottomless potluck of labels, with infinite room to contain all that apply -- not the other way around.
But I AM very interested in what you may have learned about this...
