Gradual Development

The best authorities constantly impress upon young mediums the fact that

they should develop their mediumistic powers to a considerable degree

before they venture to give public seances or exhibitions of their

power. As Dr. Dean Clarke well says: "Novices in mediumship have no

business to assume obligations they are not fully qualified to fulfil.

Let them take the counsel metaphorically given by Jesus, to 'tarry in

Jerusalem till their beards are grown.'" They should by all means wait

until the spirits are strong enough to control and guard them from the

meddlesome interferences of other persons, both those in the flesh and

those out of it. Many spirits will overwork the medium, and the latter

not knowing enough to protect himself will often suffer by reason

thereof. On the other hand, young mediums often yield to the

importunities of friends and other sitters, and will try to oblige and

satisfy them, even often at the expense of their own powers and forces.
