What happens in a Spirit reading?

These are my notes for anyone attending a Spirit reading with me. I’m posting them as it’s not always easy to work out how to find a reliable Psychic or Medium. The best recommendation tends to be from a person you know who has had a reading from that particular Psychic or Medium. Or you might have had the chance to see the person do some work in public for example in a Spiritualist church, at a Mind, Body, Spirit fayre or in their own show.

If you want to have a reading with a particular Psychic or Medium you can ask if they have any guidelines or written explanation of what will happen in the reading. You can also ask if there is anyone they have had a reading with who you can speak to to get a recommendation. Also ask what they do if you feel your reading is not satisfactory. And finally, although this is not a guarantee, you can also ask if they belong to an appropriate association.  There are very many excellent Psychics & Mediums all over the world so do your homework. Then go along with an open mind & enjoy your reading.

“If you are thinking of having a sitting but feel too afraid don’t worry. Annie is excellent & understands you can be apprehensive, but makes you totally at ease.” Judith

Private Sittings are a way for a Medium like me to use Spirit Communication and bring forward the Spirits who take an interest in your life. You can see demonstrations of this type of communication at Spiritualist Churches or during Evenings of Clairvoyance. The only difference in what happens, when you come to see me personally, is that your Sitting will be held in private.

Please note that when contacting Spirit there can be no  guarantee of  who will come forward to work with a Medium. Spirit Communication is experimental – the Medium makes herself open to the Spirit World and has no say over who will be waiting to speak to you. Most people feel they have had a positive experience in attending a Sitting but if you feel you have not please say so.

“I had a private reading with Annie. I thought the experience was brilliant. People came through & gave messages. A lot were very relevant. I felt this was a very positive reading and quite emotional. I would recommend this to anyone.” Jo

Quite a few people think that a Sitting will be like having someone tell your fortune or your future. That is not possible! My job is to give you evidence that life continues beyond death. By doing that I can also pass on messages from the people who cared for you when they were alive. They will not pass on anything to worry or upset you but they do want you to know that they still care and want to be of assistance to you.

“It made me feel better knowing I could contact loved ones on the other side” Katie

So that you can be clear that the contact is from the Spirit World I prefer not to know anything about you before you come for a Sitting. Usually all I know is your name! The Spirits who bring their messages tell me what they wish me to pass on  – and only that. They will respect your privacy as they would have done in life. I don’t need to know details to  communicate what they would like you to know about the situations affecting your life. Also, working in this way, Mediums very rarely remember what has been discussed in a message. If you have any concerns about confidentiality please let me know.

“I really wanted my Dad to come through but now I understand why he can’t do just yet. Having my Grandma explain about how the Spirit World works & passing on his message was a special experience.” Louise

You can help your Sitting go well. Keep an open mind and send your thoughts out to all who know you in the Spirit World (and some of these may be people you only knew briefly or family members who actually passed before you were born!). Ask them to come to speak to you. Be honest if you can’t understand anything I say or describe. Spirit are only too happy to give more details.

Finally, it may seem strange that during the Sitting it helps me if you only tell me “Yes”, “No”, “Don’t Know” or “Maybe”. Since Spirit want to do the talking you need to leave the Sitting knowing that I have not given you back information you have just given to me.  Afterwards I will be only too happy to discuss any confirmation of what I’ve said on behalf of Spirit.

Psychics, Mediums & Clairvoyants: What do they do?

There are always a lot of questions about what psychics, mediums & clairvoyants do. Some people think that they can only get Spirit messages from clairvoyants, some that psychics can tune into Spirit and many who just get confused by all the names floating around. This is my explanation – you don’t have to accept it. We are ‘thinking beings’. I would be delighted if you use my explanation to think about what you understand or believe psychic & Spirit contact is.

Put at it’s simplest:

A Psychic has the ability to read the aura (or energy system) that we all have around us as a physical individual. Because we can’t see it or touch it most of us are unaware of it’s existence. But it is there. And someone who has opened up to the information coming to them through their psychic senses can ‘read’ the energy & tell you what is most probably going to happen. They can also tell you what has happened, what is happening at the moment & the things your energy is trying to draw in for you in the future. This is NOT fortune-telling.

An experienced Psychic can also link through you to the energy of all those who are connected to you or around you e.g. lovers, family, friends, workmates, neighbours. By ‘reading’ the energy of the people around you the Psychic can also see where their interests can be the same or different to yours and so how ‘probable’ your wishes & hopes are since your life choices are directly affected by the people who are around you.

Psychic readings pick up on YOUR agenda – what you would like to have happen in your life – checks this against the agendas of the other people around you and then gives you the best ‘probable’ outcome. We all have FREE WILL so we can choose what we do. That is why no-one can tell you your future. If you don’t like the sound of what you have been told you will do something completely different!

A Medium is someone who has opened up to the aura of the people physically present in this world and also to the aura of people who have died. People who have died are in the ‘Spirit World’ and can come into the aura of a Medium to communicate. Mediums get this communication by seeing (Clairvoyance), hearing (Clairaudience), sensing (Clairsentience), knowing (Claircognizance), tasting (Clairgustance) or smelling (Clairalience). So someone who is a Clairvoyant gets messages more strongly through seeing pictures/figures/words/symbols etc. But all forms of ‘Clair’ can be used by an experienced Medium at one time or another.

Spirit readings through a Medium pick up on SPIRIT’s agenda – what else may be happening in your life that you have ignored, failed to notice or have lost sight of. Spirit readings should always contain evidence that is personal to you about the Spirit who has come forward or about yourself. The Medium should be comfortable with you only giving Yes & No responses as Spirit should be able to explain in more detail anything you don’t understand. In my experience Spirit always want to give a message so that you can understand issues or aspects of your life better. They do not tell you to do anything in particular & they cannot make decisions for you. Remember, we have FREE WILL & will do exactly what we choose to do. That is why Spirit do not tell you your future. If you don’t like what you have been told you will do something completely different!

Before you have a reading please think about why you are going.

Do you want to be told what to do?
A reading will not do this.

Do you want to find out if your family & friends are in Spirit World?
A Spirit reading will do this.

Do you want your fortune told?
A reading will not do this.

Do you want some insight into the issues you feel you have in your life?
A Psychic reading will do this.

Do you want to test the reader by only getting a particular piece of information?
A reading will not do this – you may reject all of the good information you are given as the one item you want may not be given.

Do you want to get all of the support that is available to you so you can look at life as clearly as possible?
Both kinds of reading will do this

Bank Holiday … what Holiday

BBQ
The day started with lovely sunshine so I managed to get some washing out to dry. Thought we would be able to have an al fresco meal in the evening but around 3pm the clouds came in. So we ate inside instead.

Not that I’ve really noticed as I’ve been busy at the PC all day (yep! still trying to resolve the comments prob) but still I enjoy doing photo readings & posting to sites where I feel I can offer some support or information. I’m a fan of the Ning sites I’m on as there are some very kind people out there.

Writing I’ve also been planning the guest list for ‘Mediumship @ Milans’ over the last half of the year. We are having a Psychic Pot Luck Night this week & offering people readings from the psychics who will be wandering around on the night. Then I’m on again the following month & Sioux Lowe in July. I am still waiting for confirmation for the August & Sept mediums but it should be really good.

Back to work now …

light & love

Sunny Sunday

It’s lovely & sunny here in Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire so I’ve taken the morning off work. I’ve had a hectic week so not got chance to update the blog much. Still haven’t sorted the comments prob & no time to really this past few days. I was at Bankfoot Spiritulaist Church, Bradford on Thursday to do their Open Circle service. It was lovely to work with high energy & there were good messages & evidence coming through. My friend Jilly also came with me & gave a lovely message to a lady.

On Friday I did one of my Crystal Specials at Ashton Under Lyne Spiritualist Church. There was a good crowd so Spirit World made me work faster to get out as many messages as possible. I like working at speed because that way most people can go home with eveidence that their loved ones are still around them & with a message to help them in their current situations. They also get to keep the crystal they have picked & that will help change their aura energy for the better too. The feedback was good & the messages were spot on. I love how my guides & the spirits who come are loud & clear & give me really accurate stuff as evidence.

OperatorI’ve had a lot of private sittings to do & a lovely phone reading. The connection happens whether the  person I’m reading for is sitting in the same room as me or not. Distance is no barrier to Spirit & in some ways, it makes me marvel at how much they want to communicate that they send me people from all over so I can deliver the messages.

Today I’m going to Hebden Bridge Spiritualist Church for their 3pm Sunday service. This is a friendly little church in my home town. The President is a wonderful international medium called Sioux Lowe & she is going to be appearing at the ‘Mediumship @ Milans’ club (Milans Hotel, Halifax, West Yorkshire) on Wednesday 29th July. Come & see her if you get chance as she is fun to watch.

Got to dash now,

love & light

Do I Make You Smile?

Where has today gone …

Pouty I’m still searching for the answer to the problem of being able to comment on posts – send me an email & I’ll make sure it gets on the site! This morning I went out to look at some banners for advertising & the man wasn’t there. Then I tried to upload music to the site & it still isn’t uploaded. No medium for Milans next week (unless I & friends do it) so can’t do adverts. What a day …

yes I have managed to upload some music to one of my social networks. And find a moment of time to Twitter, go on Facebook & post. I’ve also organised the readings I’ll be doing over the next few days. So not all is gloomy …

Good service at Oldham Spiritualist Church last night. Got a message from the medium, Andrew, who did a very cheery service. Tonight I’m at Colne Spiritualist Church taking part in a Psychic Supper. It’s lovely to be able to sit & socialise with people after I’ve given them their messages & the committee at Colne always put on a lovely spread of food. Yum!

Off to have a shower & get ready,

love & light   Angel 2

Evening of Mediumship

Ta! Da! At last I have managed to get rid of an old post that was ‘stuck’ at the top of this page. I think Spirit must have sent me someone who knows about HTML 🙂

Had a bit of a busy day. Yesterday I booked another evening of mediumship (at The Courtyard, Halifax on 4th June) & tonight at 8pm I’m at Kershaw House Inn, Luddenden, Halifax with 2 good friends of mine – Christine Carter & Jackie Fawcett. We are hoping to have an entertaining evening bringing through evidence of survival after death & spirit messages for the audience. Chris, the owner, always makes us feel welcome to his 13th centuary mannor house. It’s also very atmospheric & there are a number of Spirits in the building who keep a close eye on everything we do. We will be back at Kershaw House in June too, so lots of publicity to organise today.

I’m also trying to gather myself for a weekend event at Gibraltar Farm, Silverdale, Lancs. We are taking our stock of crystals & the gazzebo (just in case) to join in the fun of a Medieval Day this Saturday. We are going to be in costume & I’m also hoping to offer card or Spirit readings. My dear friend Julie would have had me all sorted out at the begining of the week but I’m such a ‘last minute’ -er that I think she’s given up!

Ooops! Now typing with one finger as the ice-cream van has been round & my daughter persuaded me to have an ice-cream too. It’s lovely doing something really spontaneous every now & then.
