Breaking Through Barriers: Three Lesser-Known Obstacles to Mediumship Success

There are Mediumship barriers every medium faces.  Each medium’s path is filled with unique challenges. Beyond fear, patience, and commitment, there are other subtle barriers that can hinder your progress. Here are three additional obstacles you might face on your journey to becoming a successful medium, along with tips on how to overcome them.


Self-doubt can be a silent but powerful barrier. It erodes confidence and makes you question your abilities and worthiness as a medium.

How to Overcome Self-Doubt:

    • Practice Self-Compassion: Treat yourself with kindness and understanding. Remember, everyone experiences self-doubt at times.
    • Keep a Success Journal: Document your achievements, big and small. Reflecting on your progress can boost your confidence.
    • Positive Affirmations: Use affirmations to reinforce your belief in your abilities. Repeat them daily to build a positive mindset.

Distractions and Lack of Focus

In today’s fast-paced world, distractions are everywhere. They can disrupt your practice and meditation, making it difficult to stay focused on your mediumship development.

How to Maintain Focus:

    • Create a Sacred Space: Designate a specific area for your practice. This space should be free from distractions and filled with items that inspire and calm you.
    • Set Boundaries: Establish clear boundaries with family and friends regarding your practice time. This helps minimize interruptions.
    • Mindfulness Techniques: Incorporate mindfulness exercises into your routine. They can enhance your concentration and bring your focus back to the present moment.

Inconsistent Practice

Mediumship requires consistent effort and dedication. Sporadic practice can lead to stagnation and frustration, slowing your progress.

How to Ensure Consistency:

    • Schedule Your Practice: Set aside specific times each day or week for your mediumship activities. Treat these appointments with the same importance as any other commitment.
    • Mix It Up: Keep your practice engaging by varying your activities. Include meditation, journaling, readings, and learning sessions to maintain your interest and motivation.
    • Track Your Progress: Use a journal or app to track your practice sessions. Seeing your dedication and progress over time can be incredibly motivating.

By addressing these additional Mediumship barriers, you can further unlock your potential and thrive as a medium. Embrace each challenge as an opportunity for growth, and remember that persistence and dedication are key to your success.
