THE MEDIUMS’ BOOK
Ozain beads Osain. These contacts may be dead relatives or friends, or other deceased individuals including famous historical persons. In some cases, the spirit contact is a clearly fictitious personality, or may claim to be an extra-terrestrial or extra-dimensional being. For this reason, they are of special interest to researchers. The sceptical and psychological theories offer explanations for mediumistic phenomena that imply no paranormal activity is involved. Spiritualist and parapsychological approaches, on the other hand, accept that there are paranormal features to be explained.

Sceptics presume that all mediumistic effects are the result of deliberate fraud, unwitting deception or self-deception, faulty perception, or ignorance and misinterpretation of natural phenomena. Starting from an ideological position of scepticism, they set out to debunk and expose mediums by discovering trickery, or by proposing natural explanations for their apparently supernatural feats. While sceptics have been successful in exposing many fraudulent mediums, they often simply assume that mediumistic phenomena have a natural explanation without necessarily considering all available evidence.
Many mediumistic phenomena can suggest a psychological or psychiatric explanation. Most psychologists recognize the existence of dissociative conditions in which a person becomes detached from their usual sense of self and reality. Mediumistic trances can be interpreted as induced temporary states of dissociation in which a secondary control personality is more easily expressed. Mediums may also be fantasy prone, or able to access the creative potentials of the unconscious, or be particularly adept at weaving meaningful and believable narratives.
Furthermore, many departed souls seek to communicate with the loved ones they have left behind, if only to provide reassurance that death is not the end. The medium acts as an intermediary between the two worlds, facilitating communication or physical interaction between the living and dead. While some parapsychologists accept the Spiritualist interpretation, others propose alternative explanations for genuinely paranormal mediumistic phenomena. One of the problems with the Spiritualist hypothesis is that it does not readily explain cases in which the supposed control personality is an obvious fiction, or where the entity channelled claims to be an extra-terrestrial or extra-dimensional being.
Mental phenomena, in which the medium reveals information about sitters or communicators, can also be explained as the result of telepathy or clairvoyance, without recourse to a belief in personal survival. Mediums often exhibit psychic tendencies in childhood. They may also have been rather solitary children, notable for an unusual capacity for self-absorption, daydreaming, fantasy, and playing with imaginary friends.
Physical mediums are often people who were the focus of poltergeist activity as children and who learned to channel and control these psychokinetic outbursts through developing mediumship abilities. While many mediums are self-taught and self-appointed, others learn through apprenticeship with an established medium, or undertake formal and accredited training with a Spiritualist college, or a school of psychic development. Such training involves both theoretical and practical study, and typically involves learning skills in automatic writing, psychometry, clairvoyance and clairaudience, and channelling.
