“Well, my gift has been with me from an early age I saw my grandmother (who had passed away) and talked to her at the age of 3 but, as I grew older I became afraid of what I could see.
Although the gift remained with me from that age I didn't actually begin using it until I was around the late 20's early 30's. It was then a dear friend of mine introduced me to the Spiritualist Church. Her Mum had died with Leukemia and she wanted confirmation that she was alright and not still suffering. But the message came to me, and from the platform the Medium told me I should be working and I would begin today!!!!!
The information had come from an Uncle who had died and was remarkable, but I then thought it was a load of nonsense that I would ever work as a Medium. My Uncle Sid (who was a Medium) had told me I was the next medium in the family and his words were “As I leave off you will begin”. This was when things were very difficult at home and the possibility of dedicating my life to the work of spirit seemed a life time away.
Mediumship has run in the family for a few generations, my Uncle traced it back to a great grandfather many generations back who married a French Romany gypsy. I began by attending workshops, finding out information, joining the Church and involving myself. I joined a development circle and the teacher of that circle (who has since become a lifetime friend) saw that I was a natural medium and began taking me with her as she served the various churches around the country.
It was from there that I was put forward for the novice scheme within the church - this is a scheme where new mediums are tested on the ability to pray, to say a few inspirational words from the Rostrum and to use the connection to the spirit world. It was a hard 12 months and from there I went around serving the churches around the country often getting booked up to 2 years in advance. Life at home has become more balanced so my dedication to spreading the world of Spiritual matters is now uppermost in my thoughts.
I decided to take a Teaching Certificate in 2001 to help me fine tune my teaching to enable me to do more workshops in Spiritual aspects.This began to happen, in fact, I taught Spiritual Awareness at a local college for some time afterwards.
Clairvoyance is how we term the connection with the spirit world but most mediums myself included use clairaudience (hearing) clairvoyance (seeing) and clairsentience (sensing). When my work began serving the churches my Uncle Sid had a stroke and could no longer continue, he has since passed to the spirit world but his words were so right “as I leave off you will Begin“.
I am honoured to do this work and treat it with the respect is deserves. I am still learning but thank the Divine Spirit everyday for the opportunity to spread that word to all that are willing to accept that “Life Continues” after we pass to that other dimension of the Spirit World.”
