If you’re interested in contacted a deceased spirit, having a séance at home is a great idea. A séance is a gathering where a medium gets in contact with a deceased spirit usually with some questions he or she would like some answers for. There are people all over the world who are interested in connecting with deceased loved ones, celebrities, pets, and more.
A good question that arises is do you have to have a psychic medium conduct the séance for you? Or can you do it yourself at home? While having a medium perform a séance for you is oftentimes recommended, doing it yourself is possible, but you may not get the same results as if you hired a seasoned medium. A medium is usually quite skilled at bridging the two worlds of spirit and earth, so it can be easier for them to make the kind of connection you want. However, if you take some time to educate yourself on how to do a séance at home, you should make out pretty good though.
How to have a home séance
It might feel a bit awkward and frightening to think about doing a séance on your own, but many people have done it successfully. Though you may have watched movies where people have done séances and frightening things occurred, like in horror films, usually these types of things do not happen. Here are some great tips for having a séance at home:
Designate someone to be the medium.
You’ll need at least three people for your séance. Go ahead and designate one person to be the medium, or the one who channels the spirits. Be sure that the men and women you choose to be a part of the séance are positive people and can stay focused on the task at hand. You don’t want someone to be bored or be fidgeting with their phone during the channeling.
Open space up.
Be sure you’ve got some space so no one feels cramped. Open up space by lighting candles and burning some sage. Many mediums will tell you to turn off all electronic devices in the room, as they can interfere with the communication lines between spirit and medium. Though movies depict séances around wooden round tables, you don’t have to conduct a séance as such. Any table will do, and you don’t necessarily need a table either.
Determine the method of communication
Some mediums prefer to use a Ouija board to communicate with the spirits and others prefer a pendulum or simply listen silently inside their heads for answers. Determine what modes of communication you’d like to use, as one may work better than another for you.

Don’t take silence personally
Not every séance will go as you’d like. Sometimes spirits just don’t want to communicate and that’s alright. It’s great to have your hopes up, but if you don’t hear anything, don’t take it personally.
Use a mantra or formula to begin
You can use your own mantra or established mantras to invoke spirits. There are scripts you can use or you can simply speak from your heart. Remember to close with some gratitude as well.
Having a séance at home is a learning experience. You’ll notice the more often you have them, the more they will flow and the more confident you will become. A wonderful way to learn how to have a séance is to hire a medium to do one for you. Take some mental notes and also ask some questions after the séance before tackling one on your own. Remember to enjoy the process as well. After all, life’s about experiencing all sorts of things, so enjoy it all!
