Tips and Hints for Mediums and Psychics
Some of the tips and hints
NEPRS Mediums have found helpful
- If possible, it's good to know all the people on the
investigation team assembled for the night beforehand. In
the NEPRS this is usually the case, but sometimes people will invite a
friend along or a new member may join that the medium doesn't
know. If this happens, make time to talk to the new person about
their views of psychics in general and spiritual mediums in
particular. If you are a channel, you may want to talk to new
members unfamiliar with channeling about what it is and what they can
expect during an investigation if you do channel. If you have
some video clips, it might be wise to share the clips with the
- It is also good to talk to anyone who is new to the process
of channeling and mediums about how you expect them to behave. As
you probably know, some skeptics can be rather annoying if they are not
warned ahead of time to keep it to themselves. Most people, even
those who refuse to be open minded will behave if they know they are
- Be sure to make quiet time to prepare yourself. In
this busy life it is hard to find that type of time, but if you rush
from your day job out to a haunting site without taking the time to
center and ground yourself, you will not be able to perform as well as
you should. And you will be very tired after.
- Do whatever you do to raise your personal energy.
people listen to music, paint, dance, meditate, yoga, just about
anything. Do what you do!
- Be sure to eat something light with carbs in it before you
go. Especially if you intend to try to channel. Channeling ghost
energy can run your blood sugar down pretty fast. Having carbs in
your body will help you avoid this so you won't have that "washed out"
- If you intend to channel, arrange to have someone come
who knows how you work so they can look out for you.
- When you arrive at a site be sure to ground yourself with
protection. Build a protection field of light around yourself and
then only after you have covered yourself, invite the other team
members to join you in a grounding circle of protective light.
Most people use white light. Blue works well with hauntings, too.
- As a rule, the NEPRS will not take more than one Medium at
time onto a site, though more than one medium may be used during the
- Even if you are getting very strong impressions from one
area of a site, be sure to take the time to walk around the whole area
before you tell people where to set up. Until you walk
around, you never know for sure if that is a true hot spot or if you
are being distracted, and distraction have been known to happen.
- Keep in mind that you have more knowledge of what is going
on than those around you. If they seem frightened and you do not
feel there is anything to be afraid of, take the time to comfort
them. Try not to give in to their unfounded fears. Because
you are the sensitive, if you become nervous or afraid of nothing it
will project to them and make the whole event more tense and nerve
- Also, keep in mind they might not be able to sense the
things around that could be harmful to them, and depend on you to help
them. Being the psychic, you are more likely to be attacked by a
hostile energy being or angry spirit, but you also have the natural
ability to defend yourself. The others with you do not. It
is your duty to watch out for them, and to tell the team to move on if
things look like they could get out of hand.
- If you channel, be sure to bring a trusted "controller"
you who can help you come out of things if you loose track and who
should know when you have had enough.
- Don't be afraid to tell the team where to photograph and
record, or what information from the other side you are
getting. If you are working with a good team, they will not
be testing you, but rather they will be interested in what you have to
say and respect your branch of the work.
- If you feel that any individual investigators are giving
a hard time because they don't believe in your psychic contacts try to
ignore them. When your contacts prove to be correct in time, they
will come to trust your abilities.
- Don't be afraid if you are having an off
everyone is 100% on their game all the time. If you don't feel
something, say so.
Don't be a slave
the EMF (Gauss) meter. This is one point I cannot emphasize
So many Mediums I have seen learn to relate the sensations
they get when a spirit approaches them with the sounding alarm of an
EMF meter because the two events happen together so often at haunting
sites. In time, the Mediums learn to believe in the meter before
their own senses and will ignore a spirit presence or refuse to
announce it until (or unless) the EMF meter goes off. This is
pointless. Most psychics are far more sensitive than the EMF
meter and are bound to feel things when the meter is reading
flat. Also, most meters won't sound until they pass 2.5
milligauss, which is far beyond what many spirits will generate.
On the same token, don't believe that just because
meter is sounding that you MUST feel something or you are not a good
Medium. This does happen from time to time. It could be
because you are having an off day, or maybe the spirit is avoiding you
on purpose, or maybe the meter is reading something totally
different. A microwave oven may have been turned on downstairs,
you may be standing on top of an underground cable. Who
knows? But don't fool yourself into believing that you have to
feel something every time the darn meter needle goes up.
- When you are having a "on fire" night, don't
loose your head and believe you are "ALL THAT"... as my daughter would
say....and stop listening to the suggestions of others. This can
happen when you are having a hot night and you are picking up things
left and right; announcing spirits before the meter goes off, and
talking to blank space which when photographed reveals orbs and
ectoplasmic proof of your conversation. I have seen
more than one psychic go "all that" and then get frustrated with a
"non-psychic" investigator who insists they see something the Medium
doesn't, or feels something the Medium can't.
The truth is, there are times when spirits will reach out to other team
members and avoid the psychic all together. The female Medium
members of the NEPRS agree that this most often happens when the ghost
is that of a man from before 1900. Perhaps because of the time
they lived in they don't think women are up to the job.
- Last but not least, no matter how amazing the
paranormal events are, if you feel something evil, demonic, or
dangerous, get everyone off the site quickly. You are not there
to play demonologist. It would be unfair and dangerous for those around
you if you pretend that something demonic in nature is just a ghost
because the paranormal events are overwhelming and seemingly
- First things first. Be sure nothing followed you or
your team away from the site then use a spinning energy field to cut
and remove any "threads" that may be residual energies from the site
which have attached themselves around the team..
- Clear yourself out (perhaps with the help of your
controller) to be sure you are clear of any residual energies
- If you are feeling "washed out" your blood sugar is
a bit low. Have something sweet or carb-filled to eat.
- Be sure to record your feelings, visions, and impressions
for the research team to go over at a later time.
- The job of the medium after the onsite
investigation is complete is exactly like that of any other
researcher. NEPRS mediums help in reviewing the videos, audios,
photos, and other media.
- If it was a haunted house investigation it is
often helpful to have the medium who worked the site present when you
talk to the homeowners. (See caution about this on page Hints and tips).
