One of my favorite things to do is observe how others work with and perceive Spirit. I love to quietly watch individual’s auras morph and a glittery rain (that’s what it looks like to me) wash over them as they connect with Spirit. I do this in the classes I facilitate, mediumship demonstrations at the Lily Dale stump or Spiritualist churches I attend, and when I have a free moment at the psychic fairs I participate in. It is a beautiful sight that makes me teary just thinking about it.
While watching this energy, I’ve often thought it would be awesome if mediums were to get together and bounce this energy around while passing messages. Being a visual person, I imagine it to look like a laser light show that Disney would put one. It’s something I’ve personally never actually seen done, and to be quite honest doubted it ever would be. You see, as a general rule mediums tend to work alone. One, let’s be honest every medium (myself included) has a little bit of ego and who wants to be out shined by another medium! And two, and probably the bigger reason is that during mediumship training many instructors (at least in the traditional sense – I tend to go rogue here) tell you DO NOT, UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES PIGGY BACK. Bouncing the energy around could be considered piggy backing, hence by many would be considered a big no-no. Well, Spirit apparently doesn’t think it’s a no-no, because they have recruited a blonde, a brunette and a ginger to do just that. Are you afraid? I’m not... maybe that’s because I’m the brunette.
You may be saying to yourself, “Am I missing something? I don’t get it.” Well, here’s the scoop. A little more than a month ago, Lily Dale Medium Celeste Elliott (the redhead) reached out to Reverend Kathleen Boldt (the blonde) and myself to see if we would be interested in collaborating on a project (or two or three). Both are very talented mediums that I have a high regard for, so I jumped at the opportunity. At our first meeting at a Panera Bread, we chatted and laughed and after all that decided to host an event, Catch the Spirit, on May 29th. This gave us only about two months to get it planned, and there was lots of work to get done!
And get it done we have. At this point, the event is only a little more than two weeks away, and let me tell you, it has been an interesting and fun ride. We each bring different skills and personalities to the table. For the past two years, I’ve been self-employed and the only three people I’ve really had to answer to have been my husband, Baby Girl and Spirit. So working with two strong, intelligent women has been invigorating and given me a different perspective. We all need that every now and again!
With such a short time frame, it’s been nerve wrecking. Especially since this is something none of us have ever done before, nor have we seen it done! But, we trust Spirit who keeps telling each of us – “Don’t worry! You’re going to be great!”
To lessen our nerves, we decided to practice on our friends and family. Oh what fun it was!! And interesting as well. Kathleen, Celeste and I are each trained differently and have different delivery styles. It was amazing to see how we were each able to complement one another, a few tweaks will need to be made… but overall, it was exciting. It stretched me beyond my comfort zone as I found myself channeling the energies. My guides were definitely right when they have sung Josh Groban’s You Raise Me Up, as I truly felt that around the two I was “more than I can be.”
So we have some tweaks to make for the 29th… and I’m sure between now and then my nerves are going to be a roller coaster. I’ll just keep reminding myself, that ultimately how an event goes is up to Spirit. I will condition myself to be the best medium I can be, but Spirit is the star and the director. Fortunately, Spirit has NEVER let me down.
Want to see the three of us in action? Come out on the 29th! More information can be found here.
