Do mediums basically start out by having conversations with the dead? I attempted this for a time and in fact when I asked questions regarding the future it seems I was actually told certain things which then happened. (and these things were out of my control and yet they happened!) Causing me to consider that perhaps it is possible to communicate with the dead, but it is hard to #1 hear them and #2 identify what thoughts are mine and what thoughts could be coming from something else.
