The word MEDIUM derives from Latin and usually means “in the middle” or “an intervening substance through which signals can travel as a means for communication”.
For our spiritual uses, medium refers to a person who connects with spirit people to receive and give their messages.
A professional medium specializes in spirit contact. The objective of a medium's work is to prove survival of the human personality after death and thereby help the bereaved come to terms with their loss.
Sittings with mediums are not for fortune telling, but are experimental sessions to provide communication with those in Spirit.
