Paranormal Stuff...

Sunday 29th July 2007

A part of my current work involves psychic mediumship on paranormal investigations for paranormal event company, Dark Encounters

Last night we were at the Museum of Army Flying in Middle Wallop, which is sort of near Andover, in Hampshire. We had been to this location before, but had felt that - on that occasion - it had been a little quiet. However, the spirit people made their presence known to two of us as soon as we walked in through the door last night! Two of us caught a glimpse of a shadowy form moving just inside the entrance to the first of the two hangers.

This was just the precursor to a night that was filled with these shadowy movements, things caught out of the corner of your eye, doors that opened and closed mysteriously and lots of other phenomena. For me, one of the strongest moments was when, in response to a request from one of us, someone or something thumped, very hard on the underside of the table at which we were sitting.

...And I should probably mention that two others were looking under the table to make sure that nobody was cheating!

I feel very strongly that, as a medium, I should show only the greatest respect to those in spirit, so when we had requests from two of the spirit people there for help in moving on to the 'other side', I was happy to open the doorway and encourage them to pass through to meet their loved ones in spirit. One of those who needed that help was a young woman who had somehow become lost and just could not find the way. We had contact from her and also from a spirit claiming to be her uncle, who had come back in visitation to further plead her case, and guide her when the time came.

The other spirit was a young lad, a French boy, who had become separated from his parents and who was feeling lost and alone. He was communicating strongly through one of our guests, via a pendulum and as he went through the doorway into the light, the pendulum suddenly and eerily stopped, and did not move again.

The drive home nearly saw me entering the spirit world! There had been heavy rain all through the evening and the run off from the fields was deep, covering most of the Roman road leading back from the museum up to the A303. My Shogun (no apology for having it; you try transporting 3 kids and a grandma around - plus luggage sometimes - plus kids friends and their bikes...) has very powerful headlights, but in places, the trees overhanging the road made it impossible to see whether or not it was flooded.

I was almost at the A303 when I hit a deep river of rainwater, covering the entire width of the road...I was only doing 30mph, I always drive very carefully in bad weather, but this was exceptional...

The water went right over the roof of the car; for about 4 ghastly seconds I could see nothing at all and to make matters worse, I could feel the car lifting right off the road and beginning to turn sideways. I quickly flipped on the high speed wipers and tried to keep the wheel straight - no point in doing much else until I was back with all four tyres touching the road!

Thankfully, there was nothing else on the road; it was after 12.30a.m. and I only saw a few cars on the entire 45 mile journey home! I have always known I am watched over, but my guides, guardians and angels were clocking in some overtime last night!

It is a little creepy driving home in the early hours when there is so little traffic, but I had some of my favourite music to keep me company - 'Beautiful World' by the reinvented Take That, 'Jamiroquai's Greatest Hits' and the hauntingly beautiful 'An Other Cup' by Yusuf, formerly known as Cat Stevens. Tracks such as 'Maybe There's a World' and 'Green Fields and Golden Sands' have such a truth in them; the whole album is wonderfully crafted and produced, with every tiny sound crystal clear and oh so carefully placed, nothing superfluous.

Anyway, I am rambling

So here is my 'Ten Minute Psychic' tip for today:

Who is in charge of your spiritual development?

You are.

NOT... the well meaning 'guru' or mentor who tells you what you are ready for or what you should be doing...

NOT...the trials and thief-of-time lifestyle of the modern world...

NOT...the medium or reader you saw at a psychic fair, or spiritualist church or wherever, who told you 'you are meant to be doing this...' 'you must do this', or do that...

NOT...even your guides, guardians and angels, whoever they may be...

...and most definitely NOT... whoever, or whatever is behind the voices you hear, visions, you see and things you feel and know, somehow...

YOU are in charge.

So that's all very well for me to say isn't it?

This is the core of today's tip.

If you feel that the pace of your develpment is going too fast...if things are happening too fast, if you are not comfortable with things, or worse, feeling a little scared by them then tell your guides, guardians and angels, thank you - but back off!

No airy fairy rituals or purple prose just a polite but firm statement that you are not interested right now and you would like things to calm down.

There is an ancient 'rule of three' that states that if you make a request three times, it MUST be complied with, it also encourages you to really mean what you are saying, or thinking.

For humans on this side of life the same applies - if you feel uncomfortable with anything you are asked to do, or take part in, then politely, but firmly withdraw.

You are the only one responsible for your life, so take charge of it and do not give that power to anybody, or anything else.

Until next time...

So this is me...

Ever since I was a child, I have loved diaries - not just writing in them, but buying them, and handling them too...nuts I know. I have a fatal attraction to stationery shops too; there is nothing that quite gets the pulse racing like a sale on pretty notebooks...unless of course it is a sale on boots!

My daughter has also got the 'stationery' gene, she has got more secret 'dye-rees' than you or I have had hot dinners! It probably doesn't help of course, that I encourage this affliction...
Anyway, the point of this rambling is that one of my main passions in life is writing; diaries, articles, books - so rambling away online seems ideal for me! The only downside is that I am not writing it down in a pretty book, but then, I can't have everything. It has taken me a while to get to this blogging lark - and I am hoping that I manage to work it all out properly so that it makes some sort of sense to you all.

So what is my 'blog' about?

Like you, I have a hectic life; I live with the love of my life, my loverly husband Phil, the kids - now 18, 14 and 10, my mum-in-law, who has just sold her home and moved in with us and our five cats. Sparkle, Lemmi, Pumpkin, Amber and the slightly unbalanced Poppy.

We live in a four bed house with just one bathroom and loo... which is going to change fairly shortly as we are about to start extending to accommodate the extended family. For the moment though, we need an appointment for a shower or a wee!

I have various 'coping' strategies for dealing with the chaos; I hope to pass on some of those to you, to help with your own lives.

So my first '10 Minute tip' is...

'Take 10 minutes just for you'

The challenge that most of us have when trying to expand our consciousness, or develop spiritually, is finding the time. Ten minutes is a small enough chunk of our day that we can easily find it - no matter what else is going on. It doesn't have to be spent meditating 'properly' - just sitting quietly with a cup (or glass!) of whatever you fancy and staring into the distance is enough. Or you could read a paper or magazine perhaps - whatever you do, take that ten minutes for you; don't allow yourself to be disturbed, don't allow the kids to intrude, just relax...

You will be surprised at how much just ten minutes can benefit you, trust me.

Next time I shall give you some ideas on the sorts of things you can do with that ten minutes that will really benefit you in a spiritual sense, but for now, it is back to the fray for
