Growth Into Awareness

My business has been set up to help further the aims of my mediumship:

to raise awareness that there is psychic and mediumship ability in every person;
that we can choose to access, for ourselves, proof that life continues after physical death;
that we can choose to access, for ourselves, guidance & support from those who have left this physical world;
to teach the ways in which we can open to the other realms; and,
to promote spiritual & personal growth by developing to our fullest potential in this present life.

September Update

I’ve been such a busy bee that I have only just got round to posting about my activities this month! I hope school holiday time passed successfully for you (it was hectic here) & that you are now back in your regular routines. I was also able to fit in an angelic workshop recently with Darren Linton. His workshop was excellent. He brings a real sense of angelic presence & beauty & his guided mediations are very effective.

Workshops, psychic nights & ghost hunting ….

Today I was going to be running one of my Awakening workshops: everything set, people ready & housework done. Last month the medium appearing at the psychic club (Mediumship@Milans) broke her ankle so we were waiting to see if she could go ahead. Unfortunately she isn’t mobile enough yet so I arranged to step in & cover tonight with two lovely mediums, Jackie Fawcett & Wendy Fawcett. Then some of the workshop participants had to cancel.

What’s going on,  I asked Spirit.

You need to have some time out,  they said.

Oh!

And, by the way, we’re putting a good group together for September’s workshop.

Oh! Okay ….

So I’ve had the time to sort out the music for tonight, dream some interesting dreams & dip into ‘The Gnostic Gospels’ as well as check the preparations for our overnight paranormal event. I’ve also been thinking about the workshops. I’m really fortunate to have guides who bring together exactly the right people at exactly the right time for us all to experience awakening in our consciousness & spirituality. I love doing the workshops because I also learn so much from the channeled answers to participants questions. So roll on September’s groups!

It’s also good to have a chance to pick some music for tonight. I am working with a new guide who really likes laughter & music: both of these raise the vibration & that helps me & Spirit to connect better. I started the psychic nights at Milans hotel as I want to make messages available to everyone at an affordable price. I also want people to be able to see that mediums & psychics are ordinary, dedicated people who want to help their communities. And I wanted a place where new mediums & psychics could try out their skills in front of an audience. So if you are looking for a good night out come along to Carleton Place & enjoy!

There are many people who want to experience Spirit contact & choose to go ‘ghost hunting’ on a paranormal tour of some kind. This is an interesting way to check out if there is any such thing as a ‘ghost’ & I love taking people to places where there are reports of activity to see what we can find. Myself, Wayne, Helen, Jon, Gil & Maura will be at The Courtyard Inn, Halifax this Friday overnight to check out reports of activity there. Carl, the manager, & our other participants are joining us in a seance, vigils, dowsing & glass divination (but no running screaming  … it upsets the late night clubbers over the road) to obtain evidence of Spirit activity.See the Events page for tickets.

So a busy time all round & more in September,

love & light

More inspirations ….

One of the best ways to find words of wisdom & inspiration is through the music & songs that people give us. Words, music & the skills of the singer can lift us out of our ordinary cares, if only for a moment, & remind us that beauty is all around if we just take the time to notice it. I was picking my Top Ten Inspiring Tunes recently & came up with the following (with thanks to YouTube):

ANGELS Enya

CANT KEEP IT IN Cat Stevens/Yusuf Islam

ANGELS Robbie Williams

THE ROSE Bette Midler

I BELIEVE IN ANGELS Abba

HALLELUJHA Rufus Wainright

LEAN ON ME Red Box

MAKE ME A CHANNEL OF YOUR PEACE Sinead O’Connor  (I call this one The Medium’s Prayer)

AMAZING GRACE Judy Collins & Choir

SOMEWHERE OVER THE RAINBOW Israel Kamakawiwo’ole

NO MATTER WHAT Boyzone

THE MISSION Ennio Morricone

LA PETITE FILLE DE MER Vangelis

LIFE IS FOR LIVING Barclay James Harvest  (for my Mum)

You might have noticed that there are more than 10 Inspirations here! It’s just that I’ve found it hard to stop at the first ten that came to mind. There is so much beautiful music in the world that these suggestions only scratch the surface. Please enjoy them & let me know what you top ten would be.

Love & Light

Ezra Nawi

His Name is Ezra Nawi

Join Naomi Klein, Neve Gordon, Noam Chomsky and thousands of others and tell Israel not to jail Ezra Nawi, one of Israel’s most courageous human rights activists.

His crime? He tried to stop a military bulldozer from destroying the homes of Palestinian Bedouins in the South Hebron region.

Nawi, a Jewish Israeli of Iraqi descent, is a threat to the settlers and the Israeli government because he has brought international attention to efforts to illegally remove Palestinians from the Hebron region.

Thank you for supporting Ezra Nawi. His sentencing hearing will be this Sunday, August 16.

Please continue to tell your friends and family about http://www.FreeEzra.org and http://www.supportezra.net/ . You can put the web address in your email signature, tell your Facebook friends, post the video on your blog and more.  You can also direct friends and family to the New York Times’ coverage of Ezra here: http://www.nytimes.com/2009/06/28/world/middleeast/28westbank.html?_r=2&hpw

Aura photos

auraI recently took the opportunity to have an aura photo (thanks to Eleanor & Les of Aspirit) and a reading from Eleanor. It was wonderful to see the colours in my picture. I feel they were certainly true of my aura just as I was opening up to do Spirit readings at Shaw Spiritualist Church’s Psychic Fair (thanks Sue, Susan & Stuart for the kind welcome). My colours are a reflection of my general personality & it was lovely to have Eleanor read for me. She offered me a new way of seeing some old, stuck issues based on what she interpreted from my aura & from Spirit. I really enjoyed this experience.

Many people dismiss the idea that we are a walking energy field that can be sensed & measured but this is what Spirit use to connect with us so messages & information can be passed on.  Our aura also contains the energy record of all of our experiences (good & bad) & information about our personality/abilities.  It can be really helpful to find out what colours are showing in your aura;  a reading can identify blocks in the energy flow & you might be guided to ways to clear these. You can also work with your aura yourself to help the energy flow as it should.

If you are looking for an aura reading check what is included & who will be giving you the information.  Also, what do you expect from your reading: a bit of fun; deeper insight; an interesting photo? Then enjoy the experience – it might just make you think!

I started to develop my psychic ability by reading cards & have a much loved set of ordinary playing cards thanks to a lovely lady called Margaret (now on Spirit side). She was one of the people I sometimes forget to acknowledge as helping me along when I was stuck on my spiritual journey. Another was Christine Keogh, an excellent clairvoyant who never worked in public at all. She helped me to see that contact with Spirit could be something entirely personal & direct, a way of having daily guidance on how to live spirituality. She used her ability to infuse her aura with the light of Spirit and carried that light into the world each & every day. The third person I owe a great debt to is Susan Ince, an Earth Angel who, though severely tried by life, has remained loving & giving. She showed me how to deal with adversity & with her example I know how to keep putting one foot in front of the other as each step is an achievement. There are others I could mention:  Jean Duncan Sioux LoweAnn Richmond Paul HuntColin PierceAunty KathJulie HodginsLouise HargreavesRos DellarFiona KilpatrickJulie Gesh. All of these, and many more, have helped me to find ways of dealing with the tests offered by Spirit so that I could learn what I needed to be a person & medium who makes better choices in life.

I do forget to tell everyone about these people  & Spirit have kindly arranged to remind me of this recently. They often explain to me that we are a community of Spirit, those of us above (in the Pink Perfect) & also those of us below (on the Earth Plane): we are all one.  Yet here below we seem to find it hard to give credit where it is due. Instead we prefer to see others as ‘competition’ & to be disrespected whenever possible. I have seen some examples of this on social network sites:  strong feelings can produce strong words but before going into print perhaps we should consider how we would feel if those words were being written about us? I’ve also experienced this on a personal level: giving freely of time & energy doesn’t always mean that the person receiving wants to give back. This can be disappointing if it happens at a time when you actually need to have some of that energy returned. It’s even more of a challenge when that person responds to your request for help by getting offended that you would like something in return. They can have forgotten that even an acknowledgment of help given in the past is a gracious & spiritual act.

There is a lovely story I recall reading long ago (in a sci-fi book, as I’m a bit of a fan). A stranger stopped at a village to stay the night. He wandered around looking at the village & trying to talk to people. He kept being met with the response ‘MYOB’ when he asked why people where doing things. He got very frustrated as he felt he was being told to ‘Mind Your Own Business’. When he was leaving the next morning he told his landlord how unhappy he was with the welcome he had got. The landlord explained that ‘MYOB’ actually meant ‘My Obligation’ – what people in the village felt about doing the work to keep the village & all it’s inhabitants as a viable community.The landlord asked that the stranger pass on ‘MYOB’ wherever he could as all the good done as a result would be for the whole not the one.

So the next time you are asked for help please think ‘MYOB’ & consider that the person asking is a part of your community. We all have the choice to ignore ‘MYOB’ but if we accept ‘MYOB’, you never know, we might just have forged a more spiritual & loving community.

Dreams …

I dreamed a Dream; Walt Whitman; Calmus

I Dream’d in a dream I saw a city invincible to the attacks of the whole of the rest of the earth,

I dream’d that was the new city of Friends,

Nothing was greater there than the quality of robust love, it led the rest,

It was seen every hour in the actions of the men of that city,

And in all thier looks and words.

Last chance to book …

Some of my feedback:

It was another fascinating workshop – lots of very clear explanations of complicated subjects, and the opportunity to deal with difficult issues in a supportive environment. You are a very talented teacher and also have a reassuring manner, and the ability to instill confidence in people. I came away feeling that I have actually moved forwards – I’ve been quite frustrated with myself recently, as I’ve felt I’ve not been making much progress.

I think you have demonstrated the widest range of skills yet of the many people I have met along the spiritual journey.

I just wanted to say thanks for a truly wonderful workshop yesterday. Jon and I were on a high all evening, and we learnt absolutely loads. Really inspiring.

Helping a charity is fun

Welcome to a new home
Welcome to a new home

I would like to thank Jackie & her friends for inviting me to do some readings at ‘Creative Beauty’ Salon in Stainland, Halifax the other evening. It was lovely to give messages & read cards knowing that the proceeds are going to a good cause. We had a lot of laughter & a few tears & I really enjoyed my night.Please consider supporting the Charity Dream Girls. My daughter loved the bear too!

People often think that supporting a charity can be time consuming or mean donating big sums of money. There are some great charities out there doing a lot of vital work & whether you can give an hour of your time, a few pounds or simply buy a raffle ticket you can really help.

I’d like to mention ‘Stokes Stock 3′ as well – a great night of music in memory of a lovely lady. 7pm until midnight Saturday 15th August, Piece Hall, Halifax, entry £5
