“Because one believes in oneself, one doesn’t try to convince others.
Because one is content with oneself, one doesn’t need others’ approval.
Because one accepts oneself, the whole world accepts him or her.”
I love that quote!
His quote exemplifies what I love about Spiritualism.
Spiritualism blends with all religions, accepts all, makes no judgments, does not discriminate.
What it does is: speaks, teaches, flows; & empowers.
I am a natural medium but my introduction to Spiritualism came in my late twenties. I had already been seeing spirit, working clairvoyantly, sensing the presence of Spirit, especially clairsentiently, and hearing voices clairaudiently, ever since my early childhood years.
Comfort, encouragement, nurturing and insight all came to me in knowing that I was never alone. I was asked to attend a Spiritualists’ Church by a good friend of mine, and so I entered into a small room, with open plan stairs, bright lights, blue walls and a huge picture of praying hands on the wall. Rows and rows of chairs lined the length of the room and we squeezed into the back row, between men and women of all ages, shoulder to shoulder, row upon row. Extra seats were brought out into the room and people who were then arriving had to be seated upon the stairs, filled from top to bottom. An old wooden organ sat in front of the small rostrum, beneath the window, and an old man sat and played and pedaled his way through five hymns that night. The singing lifted the rooftops! I was nervous, yet felt a sensation I had never felt before, a warmth, an embrace, a familiar feeling, that all these other people felt too. Spirit Love.
All Spiritualists’ Churches are different and you will find one that suits you. Find it, you will. You may stay a night, a while, a lifetime. You may visit, yet decide never to revisit. That is up to you. There is never any pressure for you to attend a Spiritualist Service, or Spiritualist Event. The experience will change you, that is for sure. I know that because it did for me.
Spiritualism is a way of a life. It is a love of Life and in loving your life you will find answers within, unlocking the mystery of life. Allowing your inner light to shine, share, and inspire, others. Spiritualism is a Philosophy. a way of life.
Mediumship is natural.
All of you are psychic.
All of you are Spirit.
Not all of you are naturally gifted to work with your natural psychic and spiritual communication faculty in a mediumistic way, or perhaps you feel you haven’t been; not until now?
I encourage you to study Spiritualism.
I encourage you to consider learning about your own psychic ability. It is a natural part of your being. Why ignore it?
I encourage you to seek to understand what mediumship is. Spiritual mediumship.
Mental Mediumship & Physical Mediumship are two areas of mediumship that are developed in a number of ways. I know you will find time to pursue those avenues for yourself. I believe it has to be a personal decision, a matter of timing, and when your soul is ready, you will feel drawn to pursue knowledge and inspiration as well and comfort and reassurance, that the soul survives physical death.
The development of your spirituality is nothing to do with communicating as a medium, however.
Your spirituality is your understanding of yourself, your actions, your life path. Philosophy of Life.
Being conscious that we are all one.
Each person matters.
We should not judge, and yet, being human, we do. Spiritualism and the philosophy of the religion, is that we are responsible for our personal actions and responses to certain events that may press us, anger us, or test us.
We are personally responsible to rise above any misdemeanour and forgive, to let go and let God.
Despite never having subscribed to the Spiritualists’ National Union, yet serving their churches throughout the region, and conducting services by promoting the philosophy and science of Spiritualism, through independent churches, Spiritualist centres, and private spiritual events, I was surprised to receive a most welcome award that made all my lifetime in helping others understand their own potential, developing that with them, communicating with Spirit to convey messages of love and support to loved ones, to help ease their grief and to demonstrate that life after death, continues.
It was at one such evening of doing just that – whilst serving Seaham SNU Church, having just finished the evening demonstration, we were suddenly alerted to the further announcement from the rostrum, following a meeting of the Northern District Council. I had noted the presence of Northern District Council President, Mr. Mark Bradley, sat in the front row, alone; and had thought it rather odd he be present and alone. Dressed in official attire, he looked like a man on a mission. We discovered that night that he certainly was.
Relaxed on my chair, I was of course, joining with everyone in applause for the two awards presented to the President of the church and her Vice President, for their ongoing hard work in keeping the church open to members of the public and all the fund raising to keep the doors open by holding regular events and special services.
He turned to the congregation and announced that never before had himself and the Northern District Council felt so strongly that a non-member of the SNU had served sufficiently and tirelessly throughout the region for over twenty five years, as an independent worker for Spirit, and they had felt one particular medium, was justified in receiving at least some recognition for all of her hard work. So, they created a brand new award, just for her.
Imagine my delight when he announced my name! I accepted the award gracefully.
Imagine my joy at receiving the acknowledgement of time and work for not only the churches locally, but for the whole of Spiritualism. Teaching via inspirational address, and by developing others in sharing my knowledge and experience.
Award For Outstanding Dedication & Service to Spiritualism
The work I continue to do for Spirit wherever I am in the world, is always in service to help others. Even in New York a few years ago, I visited their Spiritualist Church, when all of a sudden, I was invited to give messages from loved ones, and the Reverend caught me as I was leaving “YOU are a-w-e-s-o-m-e-! I was delighted, however, being humble and always having both feet on the ground, It did not inflate my ego. I do believe in everyone of you being able to do the very best you can, and excel in all you choose to do, but allow me to share my philosophy on life. Never ever harm another person. Emotionally, mentally, or physically – as spiritually you are crippling your own evolvement in life.
If you find yourself impressed to learn and curious to find out more about the unfoldment of your psychic ability, I can help you with that. If you have been unfolding your mediumship for sometime, yet feel a block, stagnation, or are open to learn new knowledge and gain more experience with an experienced spiritualist medium, I would certainly be honoured to assist you.
I offer Psychic and Spiritual unfoldment, on a private one to one basis, weekly, or monthly and of course, within my spiritual group.
So, if you have read this post, and you feel you are ready to start or indeed, strengthen your own mediumship, drop me a line. You can find the details below. All students within the group will be given sufficient encouragement by me, in sharing my vast knowledge and experience in mediumship, and it’s requirements, to enhance your own ability sufficiently to work to the very best of your ability.
This course is informative and extremely interactive.
Are you ready to polish up your mediumship?!
I would love to have you join us.
