A Foundation Of Well-Being For The Psychic Medium

FREE psychic reading at, Click Here NOW!!!I recently enrolled in a year-long mediumship development course. One of the introductory topics we have been exploring in the course material is the importance of self-awareness and recognizing what affects your personal and spiritual well-being.

This is crucial in psychic and mediumship work, as various factors can affect one’s overall well-being and ability to perform optimally during a reading. As a psychic medium, you have an obligation to provide the best possible guidance to your clients by taking good care of yourself.

And even if you follow various self-care practices and know what you need to do to maintain your well-being, there will be days when you simply do not feel your best. Therefore, it is also important to be self-aware and able to recognize when you are out of alignment with the source of your being or feeling “out of sorts.”

The mediumship course explores several interesting topics and aspects of self-awareness beyond what is generally experienced on a daily basis. For example, negative energy in your environment, tension and conflict in relationships, and worries about people, pets, or finances. It is also important to recognize that we are all unique and that what may significantly affect one individual may not have the same effect on another.

Psychic mediums, like anyone in a service-oriented or caring profession — especially one that involves deep spiritual counseling and energetic exchange — must cultivate a solid foundation of personal wellness and spiritual well-being in order to best serve others. This foundation ensures that the medium can connect with clients and the spirit realm in a healthy, clear, and effective manner.

To maintain this foundation, we must engage in regular spiritual self-care practices such as meditation, prayer, mindfulness, energy grounding and cleansing rituals, personal reflection, continuing education in our field, and seeking mentorship or peer support. These practices not only help to maintain our personal wellness and spiritual well-being, but also ensure that we provide the most beneficial, compassionate, and ethical service to those who seek our guidance.

Key aspects of staying aligned and in balance are understanding your own “personal cycles” and recognizing the environmental influences that play a significant role in shaping your spiritual well-being and energetic equilibrium. Here’s how these elements can interact and influence each other:

Personal Cycles


These include the body’s natural rhythms and cycles, such as circadian rhythms, menstrual cycles in women, and hormonal cycles in men. Disruptions in these cycles can lead to mental, emotional and physical imbalances that affect one’s spiritual well-being by causing stress, mood swings, and fatigue that can cloud spiritual perception and practice.

The circadian rhythm, also known as the body’s “internal clock,” is a natural, internal process that regulates the sleep-wake cycle and repeats approximately every 24 hours. It is influenced by external cues, especially light, that help synchronize this rhythm with the Earth’s 24-hour day-night cycle.

Circadian rhythms are found in most living organisms, including animals, plants, and microbes. In humans, this rhythm influences not only sleep patterns, but also eating behavior, hormone production, cell regeneration, and other bodily functions.

Exposure to light in the morning helps us wake up and signals the body to produce hormones such as cortisol, which promotes energy and alertness. Conversely, darkness triggers the production of melatonin, a sleep-inducing hormone that signals the body that it’s time to rest.

Disruptions to circadian rhythms, such as those caused by jet lag, shift work, or poor sleep habits, can lead to a range of health problems, including sleep disorders, depression, obesity, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease. Maintaining a regular sleep schedule and ensuring exposure to natural light during the day can help keep circadian rhythms optimal and promote overall health and well-being.


Emotional cycles, often influenced by personal setbacks, traumas, and toxic interactions, can have a significant impact on your spiritual health. The ups and downs of your emotional states can affect your energy levels and spiritual practices. Understanding and managing these cycles through mindfulness, meditation, and self-nurturing ensures better emotional regulation and spiritual alignment.


Periods of high creativity and intellectual activity can stimulate spiritual growth and exploration, while periods of stagnation can lead to spiritual lethargy. Recognizing and utilizing these cycles can enhance one’s spiritual journey and energetic balance.

In the past, I have found that when I am grieving the loss of a loved one or pet, I temporarily suffer from “writer’s block,” even though I was once advised to journal my feelings of grief. Journaling during these times, or engaging in any other form of creative writing, somehow becomes impossible for me. However, even when I am grieving, I can still enter a sort of “psychic bubble” and focus completely on a client during a reading.

I find it helps me to create as much structure and order as possible in my environment and lifestyle during a grieving period. So, I find myself making many “to-do” lists. These lists help me both to maintain my self-care and to accomplish what needs to be done to support others in my care.

Spiritual well-being is the fruit of discipline; it is not something that falls into our laps from the sky, but something that we cultivate through effort and intelligence ~ Dalai Lama

Environmental Influences


The amount of natural light, weather patterns, and seasonal changes can have a profound effect on your mood and energy levels. For example, lack of sunlight in winter can lead to seasonal affective disorder (SAD), which affects your mental and emotional well-being.

Connecting with nature, getting enough sunlight, and aligning activities with the seasons can help maintain energetic balance. Fortunately, here in Spain, where I live, we have many sunny days. However, the current gale force winds tend to affect my mood when I am outdoors.

It was also interesting to learn that one of my mentors in the year-long program takes the entire month of August off. After much introspection and observation of her own seasonal cycles, she has found that August is simply not conducive for her to work as a psychic medium, nor is it a good time for her to make important life decisions.


The energy of the people around you and your social interactions can significantly affect your spiritual and energetic state. Positive relationships uplift our spirit, while toxic relationships drain our energy. Cultivating a supportive and understanding social network is essential for spiritual well-being.


Where you live and your cultural context can influence your spiritual practices and beliefs. Some areas may have stronger spiritual energy or community support for spiritual awareness and well-being.


The phases of the moon and other astrological events can affect your emotional and spiritual states. For example, we tend to feel more energized or introspective during full moons or other astrological events. Incorporating lunar and astrological awareness into your spiritual practice enhances your connection to the natural world and your inner self.

In her book Lunar Living, spiritual coach Kirsty Gallagher discusses how we can personally work with the magic of lunar cycles. She writes, “We can begin to live again in alignment with this ancient power, and one of the greatest gifts of lunar living is the ability to believe and trust in ourselves.
