Let me be clear on this point, I was not born knowing that I was and am a medium.
There are many mediums who write about how they had imaginary friends who they later realized were their spirit guides. This was not the case for me. So fear not, such childhood normalcy does not prevent you nor I from developing our mediumship.
I believe that we all have the ability to communicate with spirit. Like any hobby or talent, we are drawn to certain things, inexplicably drawn or by life’s circumstances. If a desire to become a medium has found its way into your life, it’s because you are a medium.
As much as I view my mediumship as a gift, it is important for me to stress to you my beloved reader that you too can choose to be a medium. Which is why Sharon Farber’s book was one of the first books I read during my journey to awakening my mediumship. The title says it all.

Sharon provides the reader with an excellent description of mediumship. For an experience that can be hard to describe in words, she finds a way to dissect and define what mediumship is in a clear and concise manner.
How Mediums Help With Issues Concerning Death and Grief
Sharon writes of mediumship as something that, “can assist the bereaved in coming to terms with their loss and help us all lessen our fear of death. It can also be beneficial for the spiritual growth of the deceased.“
Grief. The afterlife. Our soul’s journey. These are all concepts that Sharon handles respectfully and with a considerable level of comfort and ease in her writing. In our culture, where topics of spirituality and death are difficult ideas to discuss freely, Sharon approaches them openly and with a generous heart.
Becoming A Medium
Sharon is very clear in communicating that she believes anyone who desires to be a medium can learn how to become one. The following are neither requirements nor precursors necessary to becoming a medium:
- Being born a medium
- Seeing, hearing, or sensing spirits as a child
- Experiencing a trauma
- Having had a near death experience
If you did not identify with any of the above statements, you can still communicate with spirit. Everyone can on some level.
The Path To Becoming A Medium
The first step in becoming a medium, according to the author, is to experience mediumship. She recommends getting a reading for yourself or attending a demonstration. Witnessing first-hand and thereby knowing that spirit communication is possible is a critical part of your personal journey to becoming a medium.
Next Sharon addresses a number of significant fears which prevent people from exploring their mediumship. She even provides an exercise to specifically work on this issue.
The book goes on to share numerous tips and techniques on how to prepare yourself to give mediumship readings, starting a practice circle, finding a mentor, and how to gain confidence in knowing that you can communicate with deceased loved ones.
Connecting With A Person In Spirit
If you’re interested in creating a link (also commonly referred to as blending or raising your vibration) in order to communicate with a person in spirit, this book gives you the recipe. I use the word recipe specifically because every medium has their own approach to connecting with spirit. Sharon lays out her instructions clearly, just like the ingredients and directions in a cookbook does.
Know that just like a chef, each medium has their own unique way to connect with spirit. Sharon’s methods may work for you, or the information found within her book may lay the foundations to encourage you to explore other methods for linking with spirit. Either way, practicing is key to improving your mediumship!
If you are looking for a book that walks you through how to communicate with spirit, I highly recommend this book. Sharon invites you into a world that is all around us, and acts as a knowledgeable guide for how to traverse this new landscape.
