Am I A Medium? How Do I Tell My Parents?


So I have had talks with my deceased family members, and I just want to know if I really am a medium. I have seen them, I am afraid of the dark now, I never get sleep, I see the future in my dreams. I'm just so unsure. And my deceased uncle keeps telling me to tell my family that he loves them and that he is okay now, but I feel like my parents won't listen to me or they will think I'm crazy. What should I do? I don't want my family to not know what he has said, and I don't want to keep it to myself and it has happened a lot lately and today was the day that he died 4 years ago. I am so unsure on what to do, or even if I am a medium. Sometimes, when I'm sleeping over my friends house, random names pop into my mind and I ask my friend about the name, and most of the time it is of their deceased family members.

Please help me. I want to strengthen my mediumship and I want to know how to not be afraid of it. I need answers as soon as possible please. I am honestly afraid and don't know how to deal with it...

I'm sorry, I need to go now, and I will check comments frequently.

Thank you so much!

I think you definitely have some abilities and I've written a few articles on how to identify if you are a medium and how to 'come out' of the closet. I hope these are helpful!



It's likely that the first thing you may need to do is create boundaries with these spirits!

With love ~ Amanda

Thank you guys so much! I told them that my uncle has spoken to me and whatnot. My family was so relieved. I'm going to try to strengthen my mediumship skills before I tell them that I am a medium, so I can have some proof.

Again, Thanks so much! 😊 ❤

[at] Brittany.Well that's great that you are a medium. The thing is, you can't just go ahead and tell people that you can actually communicate with the deceased. I have same problems when it comes to tell my family about my experiences, even though I proved my abilities to them once or twicem still they say its not possible and I am just lying. To be honest I don't have to prove my abilities to anyone because I know what I am capable of. Same goes for you as well. You don't have to prove anything to anyone. If you want to convince your parents about your abilities, you should know how to speak by changing the scenrio. You would be saying that I can hear deceased and they are telling this and this. No this is a wrong method. Tell your parents that you saw your uncle in your dream and he told you to pass the message to your parents. With this you would be able to pass the message without being called strange or crazy. Hope this helps you. Take care and bye. 😁

I kept my gifts secret until high school. The ONLY reason I finally told my mother is because we were sitting on the couch and I double glanced at something I caught out the corner of my eye. She saw me and she initiated and I asked if I saw that? I said yes. Then she asked how long and proceeded to tell me even as a toddler I would 'say' and do things that she picked up on. I told here everything up to that point and it was such a relief! THEN she tells me she and other family members have gifts. I am VERY LUCKY. I guess I'm saying this to say You never know. ABSOLUTELY PROTECT YOURSELF (as mentioned in earlier posts) and I say search your heart. Ask your inner voice what you should do and listen for the answer. The time will be right and the answer will come.

While I personally believe telling them is better you don't necessarily have to. If you don't feel comfortable with it you can wait. It is entirely up to you when, and how to tell people, if you choose to tell them at all. Before I told anyone I had to feel comfortable enough just saying it out loud in front of myself. Becoming a medium is scary and perhaps being in the dark with spirits is the scariest thing about it. I am still learning to get over my fears as well, but the visual of being surrounded by the white or golden light really does help. Good luck with everything!

My daughter had seen my father (her grandfather) recently, and it was similar, He had to tell her that he was ok. It was all ok of course she is a young woman now and pregnant with her second baby. I'm glad we have always had that openness about things, that she can come to me. When I hear a story about someone being afraid to tell their parents it makes me sad. When something used to bug me enough, I would tell my parents. I didn't always get the best reception about it, but I did feel better just getting it off my chest

First of all, you need to learn to do psychic protection. I was deathly afraid of the dark for most of my life... Until I took control of my mediumship abilities. Now I have no fear of the dark because I am highly aware that nothing can hurt me. You can even call on spirits (guides, Archangels, ancestors) who will make you feel very protected. I have written many comments on psychic protection. If you look at my profile and read through my comments, I'm sure you'll find info on it, and you can always email me too (email is in my profile).

To answer your second question about telling your parents, I don't know about your family, but my dad's side is extremely cold, depressing, closed-minded, and skeptical of everything. I had the same fears as you about speaking up. For some people (like my own family), it's not enough to say that a loved one in spirit is saying they're ok. I waited until I had something more concrete to say... Like "proof." I ended up describing a couple of things I never could have known about on my own, and suddenly everyone found it much easier to digest the things I tell them. If your uncle is talking to you, you can talk back, you know. At one point, I said to my grandfather's spirit, "Tell me something MORE! Something they will believe. Just telling me you're around us isn't enough to make them believe anything." Spirits are like people. You can have a dialogue.

If your family is not as skeptical as mine is (was?), I would just gather the courage and just tell them, maybe start with someone you're close to.

it sounds like you are a medium and that is a good thing. There is nothing to fear except the fear you yourself create. You can protect yourself psychically using any number of methods found online. I prefer the one where I envision a golden light come down into my head and move down to my feet. Then I see myself pulsing and glowing with this light inside me. That keeps negative energy away for the whole day. I do it every morning.

Your uncle wants to give your family the gift of knowing that we survive after death- he is trying to release your fear of dying. When the fear of dying is removed we can live a much more enjoyable life.

I don't know why you feel the need to tell your parents outright. They will figure it out soon enough. Just say I get the feeling that uncle?jack? Wants you to know he is okay. And leave it at that. If they say they don't believe you are psychic just say "okay". No point in arguing. No point in making an issue out of it either.

The spirit world is just as natural as the physical world. Most peole don't know how the paranatural works so they fear it. Once you figure out how it works you know there is nothing to fear.

Love and light... Always

Yeah, telling your parents can be tuff. I did not have a problem telling them I had a problem with them believing me, mainly because I was just a child at the time. Yet every so many years I would tell them. Eventually they had to listen because I was not just a child no more. I would always remind them, "remember when I told you this, and well guess what here it is." They hated hearing that so much because they did not want to believe in it, mainly because they saw it as unnatural and so it must be bad. Later on they went with people are going to think you are a freak and end up all alone. Well I have not ended up alone and most of my friends know of my abilities and they accept me for it. I do not know if they will ever come in terms with it but for me I am glad to know I am not hiding such an important part of me from them.

In any case you should tell them what your uncle said. You don't have to tell them about your abilities in fact now would be a good time to do so since it is near the anniversary if his death. You can just be like, "You know what I have been thinking about my uncle these past few days/weeks and I think he is alright and that he loves us; and that would like us to be okay with it now."
Good luck with watever you deside to do! 😉
