▣ Part 3. Message Givers
No Tags Currently Defined
Written by R. C. Parker
I enjoy getting psychic messages and participating in psychic readings by an ethical practitioner (a psychic or medium). And, I enjoy attending a spiritualist church/chapel in which a practitioner gives messages to the attendees/congregation as a part of the overall chapel service. I also enjoy participating in meditation circles for developing practitioners and the ethical use of their skills, especially when the circle is lead by a psychic or medium who is sensitive to the participant’s level of knowledge; for example, giving a message to the new participant who has only limited exposure to the etiquette of receiving messages often requires additional clarification for the message to be beneficial to the recipient.
The information in this write-up is intended as a helpful guide to any psychic/medium in their delivery of life-affirming messages or readings. And, it will benefit the recipient by their getting the maximum benefit from a message or reading.
LIMIT: This write-up does not cover two potentially important areas: (1) going to a psychic-healer or faith-healer, or (2) attending a séance (get together for the express purpose of contacting spirits). While these are interesting subjects, the ethics and protocol for them is complex and involves a focused write-up. As for séances, the fact is that not many people participate in them anymore and it is difficult to find a medium who is interested in holding séances (except on television).
WHERE DO WE START?
I am concerned about certain aspects of psychic messages/readings.
NEGATIVE AND DISTRESSING MESSAGES/READINGS
Should a practitioner only give pleasurable and joyful messages? The fact is there are times it is the practitioner’s responsibility to be honest and realize that their message may sound blunt or harsh.
ETIQUETTES FOR THE MESSAGE GIVER
When you join/attend a meditation circle you may be there to provide messages. Giving messages is like any skill…you become better, more accurate, and sensitive to others by practicing. Here are a few rules.
As presented in Part 2 of this series, I use the term “life-affirming” action a lot. When it concerns the message giver, it means that the message should be formatted in such a way that it encourages a positive outlook. For example, the message giver says, “I see a terrible car crash around you and it involves serious injuries.” Can this message be presented in a life-affirming manner/format? Well yes! For example, the message giver can say, “I am picking up some mechanical problems with your automobile that could result in physical injuries. I suggest that you see an auto mechanic and have your car checked for problems, and that you remember to wear your seat belt.”
If you get a message of a terrible car crash, you should ask your guides to clarify the cause; e.g., is it mechanical; is it the route or time of this trip (if it mechanical, you can suggest that the recipient have their car serviced and/or if it is the road or time, you can suggest a different way home or to delay the trip for an hour); ASK for clarification!
Keep in mind that a harsh fact is that human beings are going to have health or family relationship problems that end sadly. The question here is can you as a message bearer provide life-affirming information when the message is bad? Here too the answer is yes; and, that as the message giver, it is your responsibility to provide life-affirming actions along with your message. It does require some conscientious thinking on your part. For example, you receive a message that someone in the meditation circle has cancer that is sure to be fatal.
If you do feel that your message is valid, again, begin with the advice to see a doctor immediately and then your message should include life-affirming suggestions such as, “you could use this time in your life to gather your loved ones around you and share your stories of love and joy. You could write your own obituary…what legacy do you want to leave behind? You could spend some time alone and think about those you are leaving behind – offering forgiveness and love to them and to yourself.” Depending on how much time the recipient has to live, you could suggest that he/she develop a bucket list of unfilled dreams and aspiration, and that he/she could do as much as possible on their bucket list. The life-affirming action plan you present should include encouragement that he/she fill their days with life.
If you are not sure that your message is accurate or you find it hard to present your message in a life-affirming way, then you should just highly recommend that the message receiver see a doctor immediately and you could denote the area of the physical body that should be examined.
In conclusion, here is a message that I use whenever giving or receiving messages. I highly recommend that you too use it, both when you are giving a message and when/if you are receiving a message.
Close your eyes and calmly affirm…
