What is mediumship?

Mediumship is when an embodied person communicates with recognizable spirits of those who are considered dead. We spend our physical lifetime on earth with a body. When that life is over, our consciousness survives and passes into the world of spirit. The spirit world is separated from the physical world by dimension and frequency, but not location. Our loved ones in spirit are near us, and can be reached when we adjust to their vibration. The process is similar to changing stations on a radio; you need to tune in to the correct frequency to choose whom or what you listen to. Mediums raise their vibration and use their intention to connect with spirit people who intentionally lower their vibration to connect with us. The innate ability to shift your energy to connect with those in spirit varies with individuals and can be purposefully developed. Evidential mediumship proves that our loved ones still exist on this other plane, and continue to be a part of our lives. Mediums receive information from spirit people that identifies who they are, how they are connected to the living person, and often relay messages of love, support, and healing. This process can help the bereaved come to terms with their loss and help all of us lose our fear of death. It can also be helpful for the spiritual growth of the deceased. 

Effective mediumship requires the cooperation of the medium, the communicator (spirit person), and the sitter (person receiving the reading). The medium quiets their conscious mind to access a higher vibration, and receives information in ways which may include pictures, symbols, names, sounds, tastes and smells. Ethical, responsible mediums will not relay information that creates fear or distress. They are sensitive and compassionate, and work to provide comfort and healing for the highest good of all.

Mediumship has been practiced since the beginning of recorded history, and by all known ancient civilizations. It was an accepted and normal occurrence for many societies. People do not need to have a specific religious faith to believe in or practice mediumship.

Mediumship Development Circles: Dragonfly now has two weekly Mediumship Development Circles. You can attend one, both, or whichever fits your schedule best on a given week. You are not required to attend every circle. Both circles are for mixed levels, last 90 minutes, and have a requested donation of $10. 

The original circle meets Wednesdays at 7:30 pm and has been active since May 2012. This circle offers a “guest circle” on the first Wednesday of the month. The new circle meets Tuesdays at 11 am.

The focus of these Circles is to help participants develop their evidential mediumship; provide an opportunity to receive and/or provide messages, and to bring together people with the common interest of spirit communication. All levels of experience are welcome, but a beginner level mediumship class and/or some personal experience with mediumship is beneficial. Go to Mediumship Development Circles for more information; contact Sharon if you are interested in attending.

Private Readings: Sharon Farber offers private readings by telephone and in person.  Private readings are approximately 45 minutes. These are evidential mediumship readings to connect with your loved ones in spirit.  The intent is to get validating information from those on the other side, who will present knowledge and descriptions that you will recognize so you know who they are. Sometimes she get names. They may have messages for you. There is no guarantee that a specific loved one will come through. Schedule a reading by phone or email. Please do not give any information about yourself or whom you are hoping to hear from. Please request a reading only if you are open and excited about connecting to loved ones in spirit. Let your loved ones in spirit know when you have scheduled a reading and invite them to attend.

Small Group Readings:  Small group readings are available with Sharon Farber for two to six people. These are done in person, by appointment at Dragonfly Healing Arts, at 8 Wickett Street in New Hartford, CT. Other locations are possible. Sessions runs from 1 to 1.5 hours. Please call or email if you have questions.

What you should know before your reading:

1.  Do not give me any information about yourself or your loved ones prior to your reading. The less I know, the better.

2. This is evidential mediumship.  The purpose is to connect with your loved ones in spirit with enough detail that you can clearly recognize them.  There may be messages.

3.  This is not a psychic reading, and is not about your past, present, or future. I will not predict death, illness, or other distressing circumstances.

4.  Nothing will be evil or scary. There is nothing to fear.

5.  The spirit people I connect with will be coming through with love and good intentions. Even so, if someone presents that you don’t want to hear from, tell me, and I will end the connection.

6.  I will describe the spirit person and ask if you recognize them. Please answer with “yes,” “no,” or “I don’t know.” Avoid offering unsolicited information.

7.  You don’t need to accept every fragment of information. If you can’t take all of it, tell me what you do understand. The connection gets stronger when the spirit person is claimed.

8.  The spirit person coming through might not be one of your closest loved ones. It may be someone you have not thought about in years, would not expect to hear from, might not have liked, and you might not be certain they are dead. Please think outside the box if you are trying to recognize somebody whose identity isn’t immediately clear.

9.  Please be patient and respectful if the person coming through is not the one you were anticipating. They might be able to help bring through the person you are hoping to hear from.

10.  Spirit people can choose to present themselves at any age. Elderly people may show up in their prime, when they were healthy and independent. They may choose to appear at the age when you had the most contact with them or when the relationship was the strongest.

11.  Tell me if you recognize a person I am describing, but they are not dead. There are several reasons this might happen. A person with dementia or in a coma may come through as if they are in spirit.  A spirit person might describe a live person as evidence to help you determine their own identity, or because they want you to give a message to that person.
