Spiritualism 101

What is Spiritualism


Spiritualism is a choice so either you have it or you don't. To be spiritual doesn't necessarily mean to be religious but typically, people who practice spiritualism believe in life after death and that we can communicate with deceased loved ones through various techniques including the use of a medium and psychic readings. While religion and spiritualism are two separate things, some practitioners of certain religions also believe is some aspects of spiritualism. For example, while most Christians do not follow spiritualism, some do believe in it alongside their Christian beliefs.

Is Spiritualism a New Thing?


People have believed in aspects of spiritualism for almost 200 years and perhaps earlier. Until recently, some people kept their beliefs secret as they were frowned upon by many on society. Today, people are very open about their spiritual beliefs and many books, movies and TV shows centre around the practice. Young people who are more likely to turn away from traditional religious beliefs and the church are most commonly associated with spiritualism and the use of phycic readings and mediums to speak with the spirit world.


What are psychic readings?


The popularity of psychic readings has grown in recent years. This could be due to an influx of media, including popular television shows, depicting it as a way for grieving people to connect with lost loved ones. If you have never visited a psychic before, you may be conjuring up a vision in your head that depicts a woman with a bandana and hoop earrings leaned over a crystal ball. This is a traditional depiction of a psychic, or fortune teller as they are often called, but this is not necessarily how it will look if you were to partake in psychic readings today. A psychic reading usually takes place in your home or in the home of the medium and it can involve as many people are you want present. Basically what transpires is the medium uses her unique techniques to connect with whoever it is you want to connect with. It can be a deceased parent, sibling, friend, former co-worker or old high school teacher. Some of the methods used by the medium can include dimmed lights, hand-holding, presentation of special items that once belonged to the deceased person and chants. The first thing a medium will likely receive from the other side is an initial and that will be followed by other information that the person seeking the service will be familiar with. You won't be able to communicate directly with your loved one but you can relay messages to them through the medium.
