- Start with relaxation and an opening prayer, just a thought sent to spirit, to come close and help and for your guides to protect this session while you work; find a quiet time in a quiet place where you will not be disturbed.
- Ask for a loved one, so you know who your communicator is. Give yourself about an hour if you can, I say this because sometimes it can take time to let the energy build and a good connection to establish, for beginners.
- The key is complete relaxation, not necessarily of the body, but of the mind. Our brains are wired to yap at us constantly, throwing random thoughts and images up, the key ability here is to turn off the chattering mind, and get into a mental space where there is silence and stillness, and that is when we are in the best place to see, hear, feel, and know that there is an energy with us, which is outside of ourselves, connecting to us.
It’s a mind-boggling fact that all life on earth was created in the furnace of now long dead stars, it’s a scientific fact that we ARE stardust. We are made of the same atoms as the stars, and because of that fact, we are all connected. All life in the universe is connected, atomically. We are not IN the universe, we ARE the universe. And nothing leaves the universe, it only changes form. This is scientific fact. It is not a matter of belief.
Opening to Spirit
Opening to spirit also does not need to be a matter of belief, born mediums do not need belief to experience spirit; it is perception which is the real gateway. Some of us are born with the kind of perception and the kind of senses which pick things up, phenomena which are not immediately apparent to the general population. People who are born this way experience spirit very early in their lives, and belief will be determined by the environment and influences around them. In an environment where they are not supported, denying that they are experiencing spirit will not stop the experiences. I can testify to this from personal experience.
For those not born with heightened senses, the joys and gifts of communicating with spirit can be learned, anyone can open to spirit – if they open their doors of perception. (more…)
Automatic Writing is a skill associated alongside mediumship, whereby the medium acts as a communication channel for a spirit in the form of writing to pass on information to the living, very often in an attempt to deal with ‘unfinished business’. By the Second World War the form of divination was waning, but it saw a revival in the 70s, but during that phase it was more about angelic wisdom and messages from wise masters. The authenticity of the communicator was often evaluated based on the hand-writing style that the medium found themselves writing in.
There have been times in society when automatic writing was considered more of a treatment than a divination, the belief being that they were just writing down what was trapped in their sub-conscious, and that getting these thoughts onto paper was a valuable form of therapy. (more…)

But how can we connect with our inner soul voice without the need to meditate for hours on end or go to a spiritual retreat for six months? The answer is so easy and straightforward; try this method at home yourself:
- Take 5 or 10 minutes to be still, calm and meditate, at a time to suit you, pick your favourite room and make sure you are not disturbed.
I am a spiritualist medium and also a Pagan, my journey began at a young age, I was shy, sensitive and also very inquisitive about the other side of life.
I found school difficult and was bullied, so when I got home I retreated into books and found solace in music. I used to read the words of ‘Stairway to Heaven’ and wonder what it all meant…I soon found out!
I was called upon to be a medium and I had a lot to learn. I started giving messages to friends and they came to pass much to the disdain of my friends who thought me very spooky.
Life took a turn when I became a mother and I had a tough few years working hard trying to survive; I felt as though I had lessons to learn and this is when my clairvoyant dreams started in earnest.
Marriage and two more children followed just as my dreams predicted, but it was a very difficult pathway and I suffered with depression for a few years. During this time I kept up my sessions at the local spiritualist church and carried on assisting others through my readings. I built up a loyal following and had many return clients; I felt that my past experiences really allowed me to understand others and guide them well. (more…)
I have been working as a medium and a psychic for over twenty years and I love it. My mother and my aunt were both gifted and I grew up being aware of Spirit, so I have always believed, without any doubt whatsoever, that there is so much more to life than meets the eye.
I have long been fascinated about life and why we are here. When thinking about it from a purely physical point of view, as far as a lot of people in the world are concerned, life seems to be one long struggle just to stay alive. It would seem a bit pointless if this were the case and especially if, at the end of that life, you passed away and were no more. But of course there is so much more to life than this, there is a meaning and a purpose behind it, waiting to be discovered. (more…)
Happiness is something we are all striving for in our lives. It is our best guide in our decision making process and that includes considering how our decisions will affect other people’s emotions. However often it can feel like an unobtainable goal. We create visions of what our life would look like if we were happy – if only I had that new job, if only I could travel more, if only I had more time, if only I had love in my life – I would be happy… However that feeling of happiness can still elude us when the outcome of those choices plays out.
So are we chasing a dream of happiness that doesn’t exist?

As the White Race grew, their authority encompassed all of Northern Europe. They then became known as the Celts, this applied to all people, whose language was similar to the Gauls.
It was not long before they controlled this large land mass, set up colleges, if you will, to educate the women, for they now had supreme power over religion and government. Each of the colleges had a Head Mistress; they were responsible only to Voluspa. The Head Mistresses were called Druidesses and from the name of these Head Mistresses, Druidism received its name. These teachers became the professors of mysticism and occultism, and were most proficient in delivering the oracles. (more…)
In searching for historical mediums and teachers; our first found medium was a female – her name was Voluspa, she was a lady of the Borean race, living about 6500 B.C. Voluspa belonged to a tribe of white people called Hermans, they lived a nomadic life, wandering around the steppes of Europe.
French historian and writer Fabre d’Olivet, authored a book ‘Hermaneutic Interpretations of the Origin of the Social State of Man’. The story is as follows: Voluspa was related to two Chiefs of the Borean tribes; one was her brother, the other her husband. The two had a disagreement and a challenge of mortal combat ensued.
They had gone to do battle and Voluspa was grieving about the situation. Suddenly she became semi-conscious (possibly a semi-tranced state) and heard a loud voice call her name. She was amazed, for as she turned her head she saw a huge man standing beside her. He radiated a bright light and was dressed as a warrior. The spirit told her he was Herman the First Vanquisher of the Black Race. He said he had come to help her stop the death dual of the two warriors. He told her the cause of the duel had been planned by the Atlanteans who were the Black Race. As the conversation continued she was told, the black people were planning, as soon as there was a victory, to defeat her people. (more…)

Developing My Gift
To skip a few decades forward from my teens, my psychic development reignited in my early 40s via a lady who came to one of my acupuncture practices: she got chatting about visiting a Spiritualist church, receiving messages, and offered to lend me books as I expressed an interest. There were a few autobiographies of gifted mediums; I did not see myself of their calibre, but my interest was piqued, and I managed to find an open Circle close to my home! It was run by a lovely lady named Michelle; also we had visiting mediums she knew. I soon found Spirit did come around me and at times I was even able to let go enough to channel a little. During channelling you have no concept of what will come out of your mouth – the words just pop out, sometimes forcefully, the deeper you relax. (more…)
