Don’t laugh but, in all honesty, it’s a translation service for those beyond the grave. It is suited more so for the Soul who has passed than the person living sitting in front of the Medium. They get very excited when this happens because it does not happen often and it allows them to say “hello” or “sorry”, to heal you or them. The Medium is providing evidence, actual examples, memories, feelings, thoughts, unique to the person who has died as being explained by them to the Medium in real-time.
When we say, “gifted Medium”, we are identifying the “gift” as given from the Spirit or Heavenly realm. Of course, there is an argument of genetic disposition as well but that is a question I can speak to in person. I am not the authority on it, everyone has an opinion, but I do have some knowledge of it personally.
In any case, the Medium should be able to speak on individuality, personality, memories, words expressed, lifestyle, ideas, and at times, the deceased individual’s actual thoughts. I will say this again, as before, it is not easy to do. It is not clear-cut questions and gets answers. Although this can and does happen at times.
The way a Medium receives the information differs by Medium. In my case, I can receive all forms of communication, but I do not choose what the Soul wants to convey to their loved ones sitting in front of me, they choose what they want to say, I just translate for them. Some people are very good communicators beyond the grave, and others are not. It varies and it varies for different reasons.
