.. E-I, E-I, O

And on that farm he had some Mediums, E-I, E-I, O
With a Feeling here and a Reading there
Here a Feeling,
there a Reading,
everywhere a Medium,
Old McDonald had a farm, E-I, E-I,0


Am I being silly? Have I been at the funny grass? Or have I just gone MAD!!!! :shock:

No!!! Its just that I seem to be getting inundated with Mediums on places like Facebook. It seems everyone is a Medium these days. Everyone!! It seems all I need to do is create a profile on Facebook calling myself Jay "Medium" McSproggan and I'll get lots and lots of friends and lots and lots of women wanting to show me their Lady Gardens.

I must say, I'm tempted. 8)

But - why is this? Why is everyone a medium? Is the old adage that everyone "can do it" true? And if there are so many - why oh why - is there still a debate when it comes to mediumship?

I've thought that for ages.

Most of the people who claim to be mediums in my opinion are self deluded at best. I've yet to be 'wowed' by medium and only a couple I've met have come close to providing some sort of evidence to back up their claims. That's not to say that I don't believe in mediumship per say, it's just that I've not seen anything really compelling first hand.

Everyone I've known who has been to a Spiritualist church (me included) have been urged to go to a development circle from the outset, and there does seem to be an active recruitment drive. One in a circle I suppose it's easy to start thinking you are a medium especially when all those around you are telling you the same things. I've no real problem with this if it's restricted to personal development and religion, but I'm slightly less comfortable with the countless 'Facebook mediums' imparting advice to potentially vulnerable people.

I know what you mean about the Facebook ones imparting advice willy nilly as if they are some kind of social networking mediumistic guru. It's not good. Not good at all...

they are just a bunch of deluded bum sniffers.
Giving advice that's wholly inappropriate and telling everyone that angels and fairy's are around them.

My god listen to yourselves people!

I say these people that add 'medium' to their facbook name are just wanting attention and loads of friends on their list... me for one, as you see have not named myself as a medium, but it does make me wounder now...... how many adds would I get if I did add medium to my name (just for an eye opener) me myself have no wish in trying to get attention, what people know about me is enough, the only reason why these 'mediums' have so many followers is that these followers just want a message or two...... somehow thinking of it, I don't think I wanna try adding 'medium' just in case I get loaded with begging messages to do readings :S
