Mediumship - in Theory and Practice

by André Kirsebom, translated by Marie Holm, PhD
 

This comprehensive book is a valuable tool to develop your mediumship, both on your own and together with others. The book’s content allows you to reach beyond your psychic abilities to delve fully into improving all aspects of your mediumship. The author demystifies mediumship and gives you precious information from his years of experience to enable you to inspire and empower people along their life journey.

 

The stage is set with the story of mediumship through history along with spiritual philosophy and ethics. Next, you learn how to closely attune and connect to the spirit world. For this, you are given a set of tools to access accurate information from communicators that can be recognised by your audience. Techniques for contacting spirits are provided both for platform demonstrations and individual sittings, in logical ways that you can adapt to each situation. Each tool, such as discerning gender, age, cause of passing and relationship of the visiting spirit, is supported by exercises, ranging from basic to advanced. These allow you to proceed with confidence in delivering specific details and uplifting messages from spirit.

 

Further, the book gives guidance on how to deliver a meaningful message and how to respond to questions from your sitters. Useful instructions are outlined for how to strengthen each phase of a sitting, connect with spirit guides and deliver spirit communication in an ethical and supportive way. The final portion of the book continues to merge theory with practise in additional aspects of mediumship: spirit art, house cleansing, paranormal investigations, trance and physical mediumship. Options for certification and further training are then provided.

 

Accompanying the book are guided meditations The Bench and Sitting in the Energy - and trance induction - The Japanese Garden.

Intended readership and competition:
 

The book includes theory, instructions and guidance which are needed to be able to work as a medium or clairvoyant. This complete handbook can be used by individuals practising alone or in a circle, as well as for those teaching courses, as it contains theory, instructions and exercises for students.
 

What distinguishes this book from others on the market is its comprehensive nature, as it includes not only how to develop one’s mediumship in an array of different ways, but also incorporates the values and ethics of this vocation, and includes detailed instructions for taking a sensible and well-informed approach.
 

The most similar book available is Raymond Buckland’s The Spirit Book: The Encyclopedia of clairvoyance, channeling and spirit communication. Instead of being a directory of spiritual topics, Kirsebom’s book serves as a textbook which begins with history and theory and then gives instructions and exercises for developing mediumship in a logical and practical way. The next most similar book is Gordon Smith’s Intuitive Studies: A Complete Course in Mediumship. The difference with our proposed book is that it can be used not only for individuals but for groups, and by teachers.
