An Angel's Feather: My Experiences as a Medium
Astrid Brown, author
The route to mediumship is never an easy one and if you ask any medium they will all tell you their path in life has not been easy and mine is no exception. I’m saying this not for sympathy far from it, but for those of you on this journey it’s a rite of passage and we all have to go through this. Why? Well in order to be able to empathize and be compassionate to others we have to experience those we help’s point of view. We need to walk in their shoes; only through adversity can we truly experience ‘their’ side. It’s not all doom and gloom, we don’t have a hard time all the time to make up for the down times we have periods of elation, where spirit lift us and make it very clear no matter how hard we feel life is we will never be allowed to fall so low we cannot get up again. So if you are on your development journey do not despair you will be given strength and help to cope with whatever life throws at you. To a lesser extent this goes for everyone whether you are on a development journey or not, Earth is our classroom, life is not fair, we are here to learn and often the best way is through trial and error, making mistakes and learning where we went wrong.
