Are you stuck on a puzzle in The Medium? As you’re making your way upstairs to reconnect with Sadness in the Niwa hotel, you’ll come across an obvious energy well. You’ll be stuck behind a hallway of moths. The only way to get through is to find an energy well so you can use your spirit shield.
You’ll locate this energy well in the room where you do your first point of recollection to recall the memories of the area. You’ll see an empty flower vase to the side in the real world that’s an energy well in the spirit world. Obviously, placing a flower in the vase will activate the well so you can draw energy from the well.
You’ll want to make your way outside through the exposed wall. Move along the wall where you’ll see an entryway into another room blocked by energy. In the spirit world, it’s blocked by a wall of skin. When you examine this skin, it’s clear you need a sharp object to cut through it so Marianne can walk through it in the real world.
Use your out-of-body ability to move Marianne quickly along the wall into another side of the room.
When you get into the room, you’ll notice a flower pot in the spirit world giving off energy. You’ll need to find a way to get Marianne into this room to grab the flower.
In the room is a bathroom with a tub full of blood. As you enter the room, you’ll get a small scare before you can enter the bathroom unimpeded.
Drain the bathtub.
Once you drain the bathtub, grab the razor blade.
Head back to the skin on the wall and cut through it.
Go back to the flower pot you saw in the spirit world, and you’ll see a withered flower that’s still giving off energy.
Bring the flower back to the vase, where the well will activate with energy.
You can now use your spirit shield to move through the hallway of moths and continue your search for Sadness.
