My Journey To Mediumship.
As a young boy of maybe 5 or 6, I remember my Grandfather going into Trance and giving my Grandmother healing. His guide White Feather would often come and speak, this was to my annoyance as it always happened at a time when I was watching my favourite programme! My Grandfather was an old school Christian Spiritualist who would put on relaxing music and would read the bible. Every Thursday my God Parents and sometimes my mother would come around to visit, little did I know at the time that they were holding séances! My Godfather Ken was a Trance medium. I admit I know little about what happened within their circle but 30 odd years later Ken appeared to me transfigured on the face of a medium and gave me information that only my mother could know due to her sitting in the circle at that time.
My Grandfather sadly took his own life in 1987 and I then went through a period of a few years where most people close to me passed to the spirit world, my Grandmother, sister and 2 children plus a couple of friends. My Mother who is mental medium by this time had taken over Newton Abbot Spiritualist and I was a rather angry young man who by this time and in my early 20’s wanted nothing to do with Spiritualism and anyone that was involved in it. Things tended to stay with me though, I could forecast football results, knew instantly when people had passed, would often see people who had passed at the end of my bed. Always trying to ignore it but always slightly intrigued.
This continued until 2004 when by this time and now being 36 I was being pulled back to Newton Abbot Spiritualist Church which was now being run by Phil & Shelia Scott. Being Stubborn I refused to go and although I had recently bought a book on Psychic development there was no way I was ever going to read it. I then went on a national trust holiday in Snowdonia not realising that it was the week that would change my life. Most evenings we would walk down a little pub in Bethgellert but on this occasion I was the only one that didn’t drink, we returned to where were staying and everyone went to bed except for me. It was such a warm beautiful night that I sat outside, the stars were so close that I could touch them! And then stood right in front of me appeared my 2 sisters who were in spirit, Caron who has passed 8 years earlier kept repeating about a book and then they were gone! Must admit I thought it was a crazy dream until a few days later when home. I got up in the morning and sat on the sofa eating my breakfast when on the floor and facing me was the book on Psychic development, today this day I don’t remember if I had left it there but right next to it and also facing me was a book on how to set my video recorder. To this day I can still remember putting it in a place when there was no earthly way it could have been moved! That was it, the next Wednesday I was off to Newton Church for the demonstration of Clairvoyance.
I quickly joined the awareness circle but after a few short months I sat in Phil’s development circle and there I stayed for 10 years, purely based on Meditation. Sitting in the energy and blending with the spirit, developing an unbreakable bond with my guides and helpers and never practicing Clairvoyance until one day I after about 5 or 6 years I was thrust onto the platform. My first demonstration was the most daunting of my life but it went ok and quickly I was asked to work in the locally churches around South Devon, it was at this point that I started to get an interest in Trance and Physical Mediumship.
We were very lucky at Newton Abbot and had some wonderful Physical mediums work at our church, Stuart Alexander, David Thompson, Kai Muegge amonst others. Phil Scott is also a physical medium and on one occasion I was lucky enough to see my 2 daughters transfigured on his shoulders, the information given was so accurate it left me extremely humbled especially as no one in the church knew that I had lost children and the date of the séance was the 1 November, the anniversary of my first daughters passing! In another séance I saw Gordon Higginson walk out the cabinet as fully materialised Spirit Person and talked to Brenda Sawyer who was sat next to me about times they had spent together at Macclesfield Church in the 70’s or 80’s. I have also been lucky enough to have a 2 way conversation with my Grandmother via direct voice.
It was around this time when I first went into Trance, sitting in my mothers house my Grandfathers guides came through and spoke. I knew nothing of it until an hour and a half later when I came back around. The next time I was in Trance was at The Arthur Findlay College with the wonderful Glyn Edwards who sadly passed to the higher life last year.
So here I am a full time medium, demonstrating Mental Mediumship and Trance Mediumship plus doing workshops in the churches and centres throughout the South of England and Wales. I meet some incredible people while doing the job that I love, there are still times when I’m amazed by the strength and courage that some people show plus also the healing power of the Spirit World. We all come from the same source that divine power of unconditional love that I call God, we are all special, we are all little miracles and in our own way we are all mediums. Our loved ones in Spirit are always just a mere thought away.
Born in 1967 I come from a heredity line of mediums going back three generations, I have been lucky enough to see visitors from the spirit realms since the age of 3.
