There seems to be a contradiction here which is troubling me. Spiritlinker's opinion of BC is based on what I assume was a disappointing reading for her.
On the other hand, Candlelight has nothing but praise for him. Am I right? The two don't sit well together and I wonder how this came about. Could it simply be that he had an off-day or what?
I do believe, from my own experience, that what whereas a good medium may bring through a wonderfully validating messaging to one person, another person may come away disappointed from that same medium on that same day. This is not necessarily to say the medium is not "good". Remember, it is not the medium that is giving the message, your loved ones are bringing their presence to you through
the medium, meeting half way, so to speak. Different mediums have different "abilities" in connecting with spirit, and indeed work for spirit at different levels and in different "fields of expertise". Spirit will seek out (be attracted to) the medium who can best work for them (the loved one trying to make contact) e.g. a medium who works 'clairaudiently' as opposed to 'clairvoyantly' might be easier for that loved one to connect with, and in the same way a living person may often be "drawn" to seek out a particular medium (the loved one(s) in spirit may even have a 'guiding' involvement there).
Furthermore, you can have a genuine medium with a natural ability to wonderful confirming messages on a one-to-one basis, but that same medium may not have the skills to run workshops, teaching others or to demonstrate their knowledge and abilities to a public audience.
As I said above, "I've not had a private reading
with Billy Cook, but have seen him demonstrate many times, and have learnt much from his Open Circles. An excellent teacher, and he brings his own brand of humour to every occasion."
I have also been to one of his workshops (run also with Gordon Smith). Both have very different ways of 'working with and for spirit' and this day alone proved invaluable to me, where each in their respective ways showed us not only what
a medium does, but more importantly how
, and why
. When you know the why
, only then can you understand the what and the how of mediumship.
