Sometimes doubt can be very helpful in your life, stopping you from rushing in to believe too quickly where you probably shouldn't and helping you to remain grounded when necessary.
But doubt can also be a barrier to your growth as a medium and in your mediumship message work.
How does doubt get in the way?
How many times have you felt that you were receiving important guidance from your guides or the spirit world but you hesitated because you just weren't sure?
Have you ever sensed something important about someone else in your life that may have changed the course of the relationship but denied what you were feeling?
What about those times when you are giving a reading and you get an unusual piece of information but you are afraid to speak it because you are afraid it will be silly or wrong? (Then found out later that it was bang on for that person, urrrrgh...)
That darn doubt...
You must make a point of overcoming your doubt in order to fully realize your gifts as an psychic medium. Vigilantly releasing doubt gets you on the road to your full unfoldment, an ever greater confidence in your work and allows you to embrace what you are perceiving and receiving from spirit so you can shine at what you do and fully serve in the way that you are meant to.
How to get the doubt out..?
I've got three ways for you...
1. Understand what causes your doubt
Getting to the source of your doubt will help you to understand it better. When you understand it you can take forward steps to deal with it and let it go.
If you doubt because you are afraid of getting the message wrong, commit to more reading practice with people who are accepting and easy going, for example supportive friends and others who are learning and developing. Then speak what you are receiving in spite of your doubt. Plow through it to get the message out. Speak your truth. It will get easier the more you do it. The more you do it, the more confident you will become, the less you will give over to your doubt. You will receive feedback that nips your doubt in the bud. Will you be 100% correct? No. No one is. But your accuracy will improve significantly specifically because your are not censoring yourself because of doubt. Trust me on this (don't doubt!) and give it a try.
2. Release the energy of doubt
Make a habit of releasing doubt energetically. Visualize your doubt energy, which you hold in your solar plexus area, as a ball in your stomach. Place your hands gently over your solar plexus, close your eyes, take several deep, centering breaths, then visualize your doubt energy moving down through your body and out through your root chakra. Watch as leaves your body and goes deep, deep down into the earth. As you are visualizing this say:
"I release all doubt from my past and my present and replace it with the light of confidence. I have utmost confidence in myself and my in abilities as a medium and I replace all feelings of doubt with this truth."
Do this as often as you need to. Make a point of doing this energetic release prior to any readings or work with spirit.
3. Create a "Doubt Free Zone"
Being a medium takes chutzpah. Give yourself the go ahead to act with that chutzpah and get past the doubt by creating what I call a Doubt Free Zone. Before you do readings, platform demonstrations or any work with spirit take a few moments to visualize yourself opening a beautiful door to the Doubt Free Zone (DFZ). See yourself stepping through that door into the DFZ. Watch as the door closes quietly but firmly behind you. You are now in the DFZ where you have all the chutzpah you need to trust and deliver everything you get from spirit, because there is no doubt in this zone whatsoever. You are absolutely not allowed to doubt in that DFZ and may only come from a place of complete trust and confidence.
Give this a try, because it works. Creating a DFZ was one of the best things I ever did for myself and my mediumship.
Overcoming doubt is a process and happens over a period of time. So give yourself a break, but, do give yourself the gift of trying the steps I have outlined above.
Let me know how they work for you!
