A healing reading ….

I’m going to share a personal experience which occurred once in a circle I sat in. Every time you sit, something ‘else’ extraordinary happens but this one really struck me, because I felt as though I went into a very deep space and it is the first time a spirit person sort of sat on me ? Usually I feel very hot and sense them standing beside me but this man went the extra mile!

Firstly we listened to 3 songs, all extremely moving, emotional, evocative. The moment the first song was under way I almost felt like the room was moving. I stayed with the music but could feel something quite unusual happening.

I sensed this man, over- shadowing me, in my force field.  I asked him who he was for and instantly seemed to answer my own question ‘oh his daughter is to my right . It’s more of a sense of knowing, not actually ‘hearing’… As the music continued I *felt* his feelings. They were a bit heavy, like he was depressed and very lonely. He walked me through a house and sat at a desk. I *felt* he had been writing.


I asked why he was so sad, I could feel this heavy vibration. He replied ‘Life was never the same after she left.’ I asked him to show me a happier memory and just like that, in a flash of a second, I was watching him on his boat, the wind blowing his clothes and hair, his tanned face relaxed being out on the beloved ocean.

He showed me a time when he would pick up his daughter when she was little and put her on his lap and cuddle her whispering to her ‘my princess’. These moving images were so incredibly powerful.

As the songs came to an end, I thanked him for coming. I realised I had to wait about until 10 other people spoke before I could.

I explained the whole scenario. We were supposed to be doing psychometry but this man was so strong I had to voice the images I received.

At the end, the teacher asked me who I thought the message was for and I looked to my right, about 3 ladies along and chose one.


She confirmed it was her father.

His life was never the same after her mother died.

He was writing his memoir when he passed over.

He was happiest when he was on his boat and lived there at the end of his life.

A simple message and validation of a fathers love for his daughter, his message that he was still around…. And this is the power of mediumship, how it can alleviate grief and facilitate healing from within.


Practising mediumship

Recently, I was listening to a medium give a public demonstration. As a rule, we encourage and support each other in the mediumship world.  However, as students, we also need to watch and evaluate, listen and learn.  How does a medium act when they receive a ‘no’ (or a few no’s)? Are they are under pressure with 50 pairs of eyes watching them? Are they fully blended with the spirit they are trying to bring through or are they sort of grasping at straws as a means to cover up their anxiety and chatting away nervously? Demonstrating is an art in itself.


I know it is not easy being ‘up front’ before an audience. It is something I certainly am not proficient at. As such, I go along to watch, observe, taken mental notes and appreciate the difficulty in demonstrating. Believe me, you learn something from every demonstration and for me,  I am noticing the difference between an inexperienced/ experienced medium.

Of course it is natural to enjoy the attention and accolades when a medium gets things ‘right’ but as I watched this medium work I couldn’t help but feel the evidence was being reached – psychically. It was like ‘grabbing’ at the information, consequently it was hit and miss and did not flow…. I left feeling a bit blasé. When I deeply questioned the why’s of it, I realised I hadn’t been touched by any messages bought through, unlike times in the circle I attend, I’m blown away by the depth of feeling that emanates during a connection. It may be brief, but it is FELT. Surely this is the true purpose of a demonstration? To imbibe the deep feelings and reverence that the spirit world have to portray? There is a subtle difference between gaining information psychically and gaining it directly from the spirit world. For an inexperienced medium, it is difficult to tell at times.

I’ll give you an example. A few years ago I went to pick up a book on Europe as was planning a trip there and straight afterwards, went to have a reading. I had no sooner sat down when she said ‘Oh you’re off to Europe?’ She picked that up as it was in my energy field. Psychically. In mediumship, we aim to connect to a spirit being.

When I watch Tony Stockwell, (who’s an extremely experienced medium) you can tell he is very blended with the spirit he is bringing through and this blending is what makes such an extraordinary difference. For those few moments as the spirit blends with his aura, moves in close, there is a duality which is almost palpable as a beautifully woven story begins to evolve. Tony delivers the messages with sensitivity and thoughtfulness that is very endearing to watch. Here he is … https://tonystockwell.com. Other mediums that have this gift and are publicly demonstrating in Australia are Samantha Duly (Perth), Christine Morgan (Sydney), Val Hood (Sydney), Sonny Burgess (Brisbane) and my circle teacher Bev Greaney (Brisbane). There are many others but these are the people whom I’ve personally had readings or teachings with and have come to admire and respect.

I guess this is why the mediums of old remind us that we are at the stage where we are at and each of us must serve our apprenticeship.

We can only keep practising and stay humble. Don’t believe the hoo hah that others may bestow upon you. I have discovered,  the greater the medium the more humble they are because they realise an important point, it’s not about them, it’s about serving the spirit world and keeping themselves out of the way.

10 things I love about working as a carer.

  1. Caring for another constantly reminds me to be more present.
  2. Work hours flexibility – some carers work in 24 hour care, shift work or short shifts 1 – 4 hourly home visits.
  3. Variety of clients – especially if you are doing home visits, you can see 4 – 5 clients a day
  4. To work well you have to be able to connect. To connect, one needs to be authentic, compassionate.
  5. Older people have some amazing stories – they really are a living history book.
  6. Care work is extremely fulfilling, being their advocate and ‘right hand woman’ is a beautiful role to fulfil for someone.
  7. I love introducing healthy foods and drinks into their diets.
  8. The work is also like a personal assistant, knowing what day the physio, gardener etc is coming, assisting with appointments.
  9. I love being a cheery presence each morning and a reasurring voice at night when I tuck them into bed.
  10. There are times when challenges arise, providing an opportunity to look within, to practise kindness in the face of adversity, to stay humble (your in someone else’s home) and to be a loving presence for someone facing their mortality.
