PROMPT LIST FOR MEDIUMS
When you’re in the early part of your journey into this wonderful world of working with spirit, everything can appear daunting. You’re trying so hard to recall everything you’ve learned so far, as you stand there with many eyes watching and waiting. Meanwhile, you’re probably over-focusing on whether you have a connection with the spirit world.
Your tutor is likely to be telling you to just say what you’re hearing in your mind. But you can’t, because all you’re hearing is a tidal wave of fractured sentences and words that often make no sense.
One technique I used with my students in a private group was to hand them a prompt sheet before it was their turn to stand up. On the sheet were many suggestions of information they could be listening for. When it was their turn to stand and connect, their minds were then full of suggestions ready for their spirit connection.
The sheet contains such ideas as:
Birth sign - favourite number - shoe colour - music likes - enjoyed films - area of the country - facial marks - tools at work - hobbies - animals - vegetables - gate of walk - sound of voice (accents) - tidiness of hair - repetitive phrases or words - manners - deafness - glasses - size of ears - colour of eyes - missing limbs - relevant dates - favourite flowers - religious beliefs - wealth - colour of house front door - characters on TV - bad habits - main mode of transport - moods - height & weight - first names of relevance - random year date.
The student was not expected to remember them all. But because they had read the sheet before standing to connect for the group, their minds were filled with possible suggestions to listen out for. Each of these is just a tiny detail, but gives the medium something to listen for rather than their own mind noise.
When the less confident students used this technique they were always more confident when one, two, three or more answers were accurate. Knowing what to say to start the flow is often what freezes a student into an embarrassing silence where their confidence is being tested.
Of course, there are thousands of such prompts that could be included, but any single answer might just help build their confidence. Try it for yourself next time you connect.

Of all the senses that humans are born with, the least used one may surprise you - it is the one of sight. Yes, humans do use [their eyes] them to see, but more often than not, it’s to see and [often] not the entire picture available to them.
During their lives on earth, those that are blessed with eyesight use them less and less as they age. A child notices everything and this is often evident in the child’s reactions. But as a being grows older with more knowledge about their surroundings and a stronger sense of awareness, they use their eyes less, instead allowing their own brains to fill in the missing information.
Of course, for the normal person this human created restriction offers no general problems. But it does mean that a person is not as observant as the could be. Think back in your own day just passed - how much did you observe today? Let me help with the answer. You only observed about one half of what your eyes presented to you. You dismissed things that you weren’t focused on, or weren’t important enough to get your attention.
That man visitor you had today to replace the broken window - did you notice the scar on his hand? Did you observe what shoes he was wearing? I suspect you can’t recall even the colour of his shirt and trousers! You only observed what you wanted to see - enough for that period.
We appreciate it would be pretty difficult to be observing everything you see at every moment your eyes were open. You’d be walking around goggle-eyed! And your brain would working in hyperdrive all the time. But the point we’re making is that you, and all humans on earth, are selecting what they want to see based on the circumstances of the moment.
There is so much more that passes you by every day unnoticed or unobserved. It would be good for your unfoldment if you made more effort at times to truly experience the details of the picture.
Heighten your vision by making an asserted effort to see more. It’s a clever technique [for] slowing time down too. Perhaps not in alignment with your fixed linear time frame, but instead in your personal movement through time.
We know that you have often used the story of how us spirit people might well be amongst you all in plain sight at times and unless you went around physically touching everyone, you’d never really know. But this story highlights our point to you this evening. If you want to see something that is unusual, something that might be a sign or message from us, then you have to make conscious effort to acknowledge everything your eyes are seeing, rather than just the basic information that you expect at that moment.
Here in our world we have much better vision that we’re blessed with. Our minds can process more information faster. Often we see things before they’ve actually happened too. But that’s probably going to confuse you!
What we’re suggesting demands no special skills or anything more than those you already have. But use them with more purpose and a sense of awareness and you will be welcoming more information, and more detail about and from your world and ours.
Don’t put boundaries on your vision, instead learn to stretch the abilities of your eyes. Seeing beyond your spectrum is entirely possible. It takes practice and commitment.
I hope we’ve ‘opened your eyes’ with our words today. See how you get on tomorrow. Sleep soundly friend.

These words contain a powerful message about enhancing the senses we have, and often take for granted. I am surprised they spoke to me on this subject because I believe I am very good at detecting details in my vision that others won’t bother seeing. I’ve counted at least 30 satellites this year in the dark skies at night. How many others have, or even know what to look for?
I use my cameras to focus on the inside of the blossoms. On holiday I watch clouds as they dissipate and change. I watch people to see what I can learn about them just from looking at them. I read books very slowly for fear of missing something important. I believe I’m very observant. However, there is room for improvement and I will take this on board this lesson.
I do feel though, that many people doing this work with spirit all too easily dismiss their eyes in a reading (outside of natural body reading). They fail to see and use other important details around them at that moment. We know that spirit appearances or the pictures they send us are present for only a split second most of the time.
I will write some personal ideas on this subject for an article in The Inspired Spirit.
