Guidance when going to see

a medium for a private sitting.


A private sitting is a form of spirit communication, similar as you can see demonstrated in SNU churches. The difference being that this spirit communication is done one-to-one and in private. Private sittings allow more time and the medium can go into greater depth and give personal information from the spirit world.

Spiritualists know that attempts to communicate with spirit are, by their very nature, experimental and results can never be guaranteed. Most people are happy with their sitting and they receive information that could only have originated from people in the spirit world. However, if the medium is unable to link with your spirit loved ones, or if you are unsatisfied with a private sitting, then you can request a refund of any fee paid. 

Spiritualist mediums aim for a private sitting to be both evidential in nature and an enjoyable experience. If, however, you seek a sitting to talk about Spiritualism in general, if you seek a spiritual assessment or other life guidance, then you should discuss this with the medium first.


Will I have my fortune told?
Spiritualist mediums do not "tell fortunes." What they will do is attempt to provide you with evidence of the survival of the human soul after death. Sometimes your spirit friends will give their opinions and advice to help you in your life but our mediums avoid giving the sort of information that 'fortune tellers' tend to give.

Is it frightening?
Because of preconceived ideas and misinformation in the media some find going to see a medium as worrying. But our mediums will reassure you that there is nothing to worry about and that spirit communication is a natural process. The people in the spirit world who communicate are, in the main, people who knew you and cared for you when they were alive on earth, there is no reason why you should be frightened of them.

What if they tell me something I don't want to know?
Generally, your spirit friends and relatives will not tell you anything that is going to worry or upset you and Spiritualist mediums are taught to be very careful with the information that they pass on.

Can they tell my future?
Because spirit people are unburdened by physical minds and material influences, they can sometimes take a much broader and long-sighted view of the likely outcome of our actions. Then, of course, they will try to make us aware of these likely situations before they arise.

Does a medium know everything about me?
The medium generally knows absolutely nothing about you before the sitting begins. Some mediums will be able to 'sense things psychically' about you, such as your health, emotional state etc., but during the sitting the medium will only know those facts about your life that the spirit people choose to tell them. However, your spirit friends will respect your privacy and any information of a very private or personal nature will not be revealed, unless it is important to the communication. Spiritualist mediums keep absolutely all information they receive as confidential, and much of what they say is soon forgotten by them after a sitting has ended.

Should I think about the person/people I want a message from?
You can if you wish, sometimes this can be helpful as the bond of love between you and your spirit friends can be a strong connecting link. But Spiritualists stress that there is absolutely no guarantee that a message from any particular individual will come through. Remember mediums are completely dependent upon the wishes of the spirit people to communicate. Mediums cannot "call them up", it is spirit who decide whether to communicate or not. Generally, concentrating or the desire to have a specific person communicate is not recommended as it can limit the ability of other spirit people who are there to talk with you.

Is there anything I can do to make my sitting more successful?
Keep an open mind. Try not to limit your thoughts to one or two people, your message could be from  anyone you have known, or even people who passed over before you were born. Be honest with the medium, if you can't understand a part of your message, say so, and the medium will try to clarify it for you. Be honest with yourself, don't say 'No' just to be awkward, and don't say 'Yes' just to be helpful. As far as you can have hopeful, positive and friendly thoughts toward the medium and those spirit people who do come to communicate to you.

Keep these few simple guidelines in mind, and your sitting should be an experience to remember.
