Self-protection For Mediums

Another writer says on this subject: "Mediumship occasionally acts in

such a manner that it becomes a stimulant to every organ and function of

the system, and the individual becomes excited, nervous, and irritable;

hence, the greater the acceleration of physiological functions as the

result of psychical influences upon the human body, the more need of

caution and restraint in every department of physiological life." But it
/> must not be understood that the proper practice of mediumship is harmful

and not conducive to good health. On the contrary, as a writer has said:

"We consider the highest degree of physical health perfectly compatible

with the best manifestation of mediumship." Another writer has well

said: "If you are not robust enough, if you have not sufficient

knowledge and self-mastery to use your will and maintain control over

your psychic self; if you are unable to guard against the adverse

emanations or the drawing power of others, you had better take lessons

in concentration and psychic self-protection; and until you understand

the art of self-possession, refrain from attempting to cultivate your

sensitiveness. It will never do for you to be 'too sensitive'--be

natural, sensible, and strong."
