Guiding Light

I love working with my team of guides. No matter how much I develop my psychic senses I know I will not get a Spirit link without their help. So the support & explanations they provide are vital.

People often ask the name of my guide & assume there is only one. However I have a lovely team of beings around me; each has their own specialism & way of working. My first guide, the one who came forward as I searched to connect to Spirit World, has stayed with me as my ‘bouncer’. He keeps low energy (negativity) away if I need him to. He also met me very slowly & steadily as our relationship needed time to develop trust. In fact, for most of the first 10 years I pretty much doubted & ignored him. But he was endlessly patient. And, in time, I trusted him enough for us to work together.

As soon as we were working easily together he stepped back.  Really I was ready for a new guide. Once again we had to build up trust. I was unhappy to be moved on when I felt I was working well. It was like learning to walk all over again. The new guide had a different energy & a new way of giving me information. So I chucked my dummy (pacifier) out of the pram! It took me about 6 weeks to realise that the change was right for me; Spirit wanted me to be able to work better for them.

Now I get guides popping in & out all the time. I don’t always have a more personal relationship with each one. I’ve learned to trust that the right being will be with me with the right skills just for whatever I’m doing. So I’m proud to work with a team & be part of a fascinating journey. At the heart of any work to develop mediumship is your relationship with your guides. They are the ones who get you through the bumpy bit at the beginning. They help you build your confidence. The more you pay attention to them & acknowledge them the better Spirit contact & messages will flow.

People also ask me how they will know or identify when a guide is around. As the relationship between Medium & Guide is personal I prefer not to tell people who their guides are – even when I sense, see or hear them. It’s a bit like meeting someone you feel might be that ‘special’ person then your best friend/mother/their mother proceeds to tell you all their likes/dislikes. It really takes the excitement of discovery out of the relationship. It also makes it harder to trust as you have someone else’s opinion parked in your mind.

There is also the chance that I will give someone a stereotype instead of the reality. Tell people they have a Native American guide & most of us will imagine a man, probably a medicine man or chief, in buckskin trousers, bare chested & craggy faced. So the little old lady in a blanket shawl with a careworn face who is really the guide might be a bit of a let down. Or she may feel very restricted being forced to appear as a man! Not a good start to a relationship.

Sensing your guide(s) will depend on which of your psychic senses is the strongest. And the connection can be quite ‘light’ at first. Perhaps a flash in the corner of your eye as if someone is standing at your side. Perhaps an itchy, tingling feeling at the end of your nose or across your head. Perhaps even a buzzing noise in your ear. Sometimes a person seen in dreams. Or an eye just as you drop off to sleep. Try to accept anything that seems to be contact. If it is, it will happen again. If it’s not, at least you have shown your guide you are willing to start a relationship.

Snow …. what snow?

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.

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

Last chance to book …

Sunday 16th August. ‘Awakeing to Mediumship’ Workshop. 74 Caldene Ave, Mytholmroyd. 10am – 4pm.

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.

A survey for all psychics & mediums

You might also want to check out The Spiritual Workers Association social site on Ning (& there are other good sites using Ning) where you can get information & find out more about working as a psychic or medium.

I’m doing the programmes at the moment for tonight’s Mediumship@Milans & the nicest thing is that Adele from Tower Admin Services is also here sorting out my filing system. She’s doing a brilliant job (at very reasonable rates). Tonight’s guest is Sioux Lowe, a fab International Medium, who is guaranteed to have us laughing with love & light from the Spirit contacts. It only costs £6 and starts at 8pm. So come along to Milans Hotel, Halifax.

‘Awakening Workshops’

I love running workshops. It’s great to get questions & find myself giving explanations inspired by my Spirit Guides. It’s lovely to feel people blending their energy & making progress together towards spiritual development. It’s fun just finding out! I often realise I learn as much as anyone on the workshops because my questions get answered too.

In August I’m running my ‘Awakening to Past Lives’ workshop (a favourite of mine) and all three of the component workshops to enable anyone to open up & develop their mediumship. In September I’m also running a 10 week Development Circle so that people can carry on strengthening their link to Spirit. I love the Past Life work because it can really help to identify patterns of behaviour & emotion that are in this life but really belong to an earlier life. I believe that reincarnation is the way we make our journey towards being fully integrated with the Divine, One Central Sun, God/ess or what ever you choose to call the creative force. So helping people to access & work with the wisdom & challenges present by past lives is really exciting.

For those who find they need a deeper understanding of some of the lives affecting them I also offer Past Life Readings. My Spirit Guides are always on hand to access the Akashic Record & allow me to take a peek at the ‘books’ that people are still connected to in this life. Sometimes just understanding why certain events happened at a certain time in our life can really help us to put the puzzle pieces together & move forward more confidently.

Psychic News Article

I’ve just downloaded my copy of the latest issue of Psychic News & am delighted with the article they have put in about me. It follows on from the one by Diane Crabtree, Women’s Editor of the Halifax Courier (click here). It’s lovely coming after the frustration of the banner yesterday. Also, new banner in place. Tomorrow night at Todmorden Cricket Club will be good – messages from Spirit are already waiting to be delivered!

One of the new things I’m trying is a ‘Come Dine With a Medium’, tapas, talk & messages evening on 24th July at a very active, haunted location – Kershaw House Inn, Luddenden, Halifax. It’s ticket only (£15) & I’ll be visiting every table to give messages & answer questions about psychics & mediumship. I’ll also have my bag of crystals with me & will also give crystal readings too.

I’m also discussing another ‘ghost night’ at a venue in Halifax, West Yorkshire & the location appears to be nicely active. After that I’ll be planning for Halloween & a paranormal event at our regular, private location near Hebden Bridge. More details will be posted to the events page as they are confirmed.

Finally, I’m sorting out Autumn workshop dates for people developing psychic & mediumship abilities. Again, I’ll post as soon as they are confirmed.
