From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Mediumship is the practice of certain people—known as mediums—to purportedly mediate communication between spirits of the dead and living human beings.[1][2]

Attempts to contact the dead date back to early human history, with mediumship gaining in popularity during the 19th century. Investigations during this period revealed widespread fraud—with some practitioners employing techniques used by stage magicians—and the practice started to lose credibility.[3][4] The practice still continues into the 21st century, with high-profile fraud uncovered as recently as the 2000s.[5


Mediums are different from psychics in that their claim to fame is communicating with the deceased, or spanning the physical and spiritual worlds. Famous mediums appear on television shows and write bestselling books about their abilities to communicate with the dead, and these types of seers are generally seen in a positive light by the public. Some critics argue that mediums are more popular than psychics due to mediums’ tendency to possess a higher level of perceived credibility. This may be because mediums generally receive more favorable attention in the press.

The tools of the trade are different, too. For example, psychics often work with a variety of stereotypical items like tarot cards, palms, pendeleums and crystals.. Mediums, on the other hand, usually convey descriptions of information or images provided by spirits that have significant personal and often private meanings to their client. Some of my Clients have brought photos of their deceased loved ones and items such as jackets, jewellery and hats.


In my experience as a Medium it is quite different from my work as a Psychic.

I am able to communicate with Spirit, Guides and Archangels without assistance from tools.

Of course tools that I have mentioned do help but asking somone to come through and bring any messages they have for my Client is usually how it starts.

I have seen and spoken to many Spirits, Guides and Archangels during my work and each time I feel blessed, amazed, I never fail to get goose bumps and 98 percent of the time my client will cry which makes me feel happy that I have helped them and they now have closure.

Many People ask me how I see the Spirits or the Deceased, what do they look like? I have added a small picture with this article of a Dog thats passed on. This is pretty much how I see them.

I basically see them in their energetic form. Sometimes they come through with colour as well, some come through much more clearly than others but each time is special.

I have come across Spirits that are trapped on Earth still and they want to move on, they are usually ones that have had tragic deaths such as Drug Over Doses and they cant move on into the next realm until their family members have stopped grieving and were able to get rid of their ashes or other attachments.

To be in a state to speak to the ones passed I am in a very relaxed state, part meditative and yet fully aware of my surrounds. Have you ever met or spoken with somone on the phone and immediately felt so relaxed in their presence or the sound of their voice that you never want the conversation to end? Thats how relaxed I feel when im ‘conversing’ with the other side.

About Sandra Skender

I am a 4th generation Psychic Medium, also a Reiki Master and Spiritual Advisor. From the time I was a little girl I can remember seeing spirits. I would see them in their energetic form rather then their physical form and to this day, I still continue to see them as such. One particular experience I remember so well: About ten years ago a friends Dad passed away, so a few days later, I went to visit my friend to see how she was doing. We sat down, drank tea and chatted next to a shrine that she had made for him. During our conversation I felt very strange and began to feel goosebumps everywhere.
