What is a Mediumship Circle?
by Carla Blaha
Often you will hear someone say, “Sit circle”, when discussing the topic of Mediumship. Sitting circle is part of the practical education for a Mediumship. It may sound funny “training” to talk to dead people. But, it is true. Almost all accomplished mediums have had a lot of circle training.
Circle training helps beginner mediums develop and discuss their gifts with a seasoned medium. It takes a lot of hard work and training to become a medium.
A Mediumship circle usually consists of between 4-8 people. It is best to have the same people meet every time. The participants should sit in the same spots every meeting. This helps the frequency and vibration stay even and hopefully rise as the weeks go on.
Circles begin with a prayer asking for energies of equal or higher vibration to come to the group in love and light. The leader will “call” spirit to come to the circle. It is important that the group never acknowledge any lower vibration. Usually, the leader of the circle, then, begins with a guided meditation.
When the meditation is over participants begin to discuss what has “come” to them via spirit. It is appropriate before anyone is approached with a message to ask, “May I come to you?” A medium never wants to deliver a message to someone who does not want to hear it. The messages will continue as long as the participants are willing and able to receive them. It is important to end the circle when it feels like it is time to stop.
A closing prayer of gratitude is said and the circle is finished for that meeting. Circles can meet weekly, bi-monthly or monthly. It is important to attend and never be late.
