Q: you mention mediums here, and i’m wondering how you feel about mediums, and whether you’d consider yourself a sort of one. (sorry if that seems like it should be obvious?)
I think most are fakes and frauds who prey on people looking for comfort. I have very little patience for people who claim to be able to speak to the dead for others’ benefit.
I’m also kind of arrogantly firm about certain beliefs I have. People don’t have to believe me, but I literally dgaf about what anyone else says on the matter. I know what’s Really True, because I sacrificed/donated seven (eight?) years of my life to it. I’m not weaving a fantasy, I’m reporting the news.
I also think it’s interesting when people say they believe me as a person who they know and trust, but don’t really believe what I’m saying (and I get that a lot a lot a lot). I’m not sure how you jive with that level of cognitive dissonance, but that’s for you to sort out, I guess.
…But at the same time, I get that skepticism. It’s a lot to absorb. Let me also say people send me messages alllllllll the time about supernatural experiences they’ve had, hoping for help or advice or guidance, so you’re totally not alone, and I’m here for you if you need to get something off your chest. I believe you. I don’t judge you. And you can tell me anything, no matter how weird.
Someone else asked me once if I consider myself a medium and I…. guess? I mean if anything I really do consider myself a witch, whatever that even means. It sounds less hokey and less serious, I guess. I won’t attempt to talk to your family members and I do not have messages for you, other than the general theme I say here always: your family loves you and they want you to find peace with their death. They’re not as far as you feel like they are, even if you don’t see signs of their presence. You’re not alone, and when you die you get to go Home no matter what you do, so don’t worry.
I love the dead, and I have a very deep relationship to them. I think that I’m a channel through which True Things travel. I do believe that I have healing powers, and that I purposely absorb the suffering of people I care about in order to lighten their load. The things I say about the dead are given to me more than they are conjured from my memory.
I feel like these are the only real important things that I do, to be honest.
