Mediumship is a form of relationship to spirits practiced in religions such as Spiritualism, Spiritism, Espiritismo, Candomblé, Voodoo, Kardecism, and Umbanda. [1]

The term "mediumship" denotes the ability of a person (the medium) to experience and/or to tell others about their experiences of contact with spirits of the dead, spirits of non-corporeal entities, angels, and/or nature spiirits. In addition to experiencing these spiritual phenomena directly, the medium generally facilitates communication between non-mediumistic people and spirits who may have messages to share.

A medium may listen to and relate conversations with spirit voices, go into a trance and speak without knowledge of what is being said, allow a spirit to enter his or her body and speak through it, or may use some form of physical tool, such as a writing pad, to relay messages from the spirits those who wish to contact them.

Mediumship is part of the belief system of some New Age groups. In this context, and under the name channelling, it most often refers to a medium receiving messages from a teaching-spirit of advanced wisdom. [2][3]

In some cultures, mediums (or the spirits working with them) are said to be able to produce physical paranormal phenomena such as materialisations of spirits, apports of objects, or levitation.
