how to pick a medium
How to pick a Medium is always a popular question.  Lily Dale Assembly season starts soon.   There is a lot of demand for readings in Lily Dale and there is a variety of Registered Mediums that can give you a private reading on the grounds.  Now there is even more questions for Mediums online.
I am a visiting Medium at Lily Dale, so I cannot do private readings on the grounds.  There is the opportunity to serve at the Forest Temple and Inspiration Stump when I can. I do have a place nearby that we can schedule to meet.  I will also be helping out at various Church fun nights and I have a full schedule of public events this summer in the Western New York and Greater Rochester areas.
There are a lot of talented Mediums and Psychics out there and it can be difficult to select the right person for you.   There are differences between a Psychic and a Medium.  I get the question all the time — which Medium should I go to?

It can be confusing, we all are very different and each connect with spirit in unique ways.   We also have different delivery styles.   Some may be more comfortable with certain Mediums rather than others.   Your comfort with the Medium is part of the process.  My recommendations will be different based on the person asking me.

How to Pick a Medium

I know I am not being of much help to you right this moment.  Here is a few tips in finding a great Medium to see while you are in Lily Dale or if you attend one of the many psychic fairs this summer:

    • Watch them at one of the many public demonstrations, trust your gut, if you feel connected to one of these Mediums by all means trust that feeling
    • Ask friends and family for recommendations — many of the Mediums have raving fans.  Again trust your gut if the recommendations feels right for you.   You wouldn’t necessarily be attracted to the same mate your best friend is or career choices for example.   Same goes for Mediums.
    • Try the Monday night circle before you make an appointment with one of the many talented Mediums at Lily Dale
  • Check out their website – get to know them see if there is something they write that makes you connect with them
  • Talk with your fellow visitors, you may hear something that you will guide you towards someone.  Be open, walk the grounds, if you find that you have a pull to a street, follow it, Spirit may guide you to the perfect Medium for you.  Things that may spark you include:
    • their name
    • the number of their house is your favorite number
    • something about them draws you near them when you see them out and about
    • they feel familiar to you
    • the color of their house
    • the flowers in their garden
    • a decoration they have in their yard
    • you may trip in front of their home
    • a bird, squirrel or a cat come upon you
    • a thought about a loved one you hadn’t thought of in awhile

Medium/Client Connections are Personal

If you don’t feel a connection, do not force it.  Those of us that truly serve Spirit by doing messaging are not competing with each other.  We know that Spirit will only bring us those that we are meant to help.   It is awesome honor to do so.

It is my hopes that you find the answers you are searching for, with me or someone else.    You may wish to read my tips for a great reading.
