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.

My week

I can’t believe that we are a third of the way through 2009! And I’m still tweeking the web site as I learn more about HTML than I thought I would ever want to.

Today I’ve been updating the look of the site & trying to understand how to change the code to get the pages to do what I want. Just the kind of thing I could use some Spirit help with as I’m a novice at the technical stuff – but Spirit are keeping very quiet. Perhaps there isn’t a guide readily available with the technical knowledge? LOL!

They have been with me very much tho when I’ve been working this week. I’m busy planning & organising events for May, June & July and it’s lovely that the people I need are being placed in front of me so I can get things done. I’ve also had a lot of mediumship work as I had my regular Mediumship @ Milans evening (working with Paul Hunt) and a Trance Circle.

I also went to Hebden Bridge Spiritualist Church for their regular monthly Open Circle. Lots of Spiritualist Churches hold Open Circles & these are a good way for anyone interested in finding out about mediumship & spiritualism to see people working & giving messages from Spirit. I believe we are all able to have our own mediumship link to Spirit & going to an Open Circle can support you in finding out about your own abilities. Some churches also offer Awareness or Development classes for anyone who wants to explore & develop their own abilities. If you get chance check out what is available in your area.

This weekend I’ll be running one of my development workshops. I have a lovely bunch of people who are getting their mediumship link in place & it’s always exciting when people find they can also receive clear & supportive Spirit guidance directly. I love when the angels & guides come around these groups as our energy is always uplifted & we are always given hope for the continuing progression of the human race.

The I get a day off for the (UK) May Day Bank Holiday. Wherever you are & whatever you are doing, have a lovely weekend.

Love & Light, Annie Conboy
