It’s one of those things where curiosity rather than belief makes you want to do something.
I have friends who are very religious others are spiritual, some who are atheists and others are agnostic. I wasn’t raised in a religious environment but throughout life I have tried to keep an open mind whilst listening to the different and varying views and beliefs of those around me.
It was with this open mind that my recent travels took me to a spiritual medium. It wasn’t a private reading, this was a theatre environment with an audience of around 150, so I felt it was very unlikely that any of my loved ones would come through. As it happened I was one of about six people in the audience that had a visit.
It was an interesting experience, not life changing, but interesting in some of the messages that my Grandma and Father passed on through the medium. At the time they appeared to be quite specific and accurate and I have to admit, started to sway me towards believing in an afterlife.
It was only when I returned from the weekend away that I spent some time researching mediums. There are some very skilled mediums but are they skilled at talking to spirits or at cold reading? Was I prepared to believe because I really wanted to believe? Did my body language in the audience make me look gullible or susceptible and thus I was chosen? Did the researchers study social media to gain information (that’s the cynic in me coming through).
What do you think? Have you visited a medium? Do you believe?
I have still not decided, maybe I never will, but it has left me feeling more curious and I would not discount another visit to a medium.
In any event, it was a great weekend away, nice hotel, great company, lovely food and the event raised almost 4000 euros for ACTIN.
