Mediumship is a very misunderstood subject in terms of what people expect to get from a Mediumship reading. My FAQS on Mediumship explain a bit more of what to expect from your sitting. Penny's FAQ's for Mediumship
It's really important to remember with Mediumship that it's for your interpretation and not mine, as I'm only the Medium!
When I conduct a Mediumship Sitting be it with one, two or ten people, I usually work handsfree with no tools at all, but sometimes I will bring in a Crystal Ball.
When having a Mediumship Sitting this can be done individually of course, but sometimes it's lovely do it as a family. With Mediumship the more energy that is in the room the more chance of Spirit coming through and the more Spirits that will connect. The lovely thing about doing it as a family is that hopefully the Spirits that come will be recognisable to everyone in the room. From my point of view it's lovely to see family members bouncing off each other with with thoughts and emotions too.
