Teaching and learning never ends

Teaching and learning never ends

I have the privilege of teaching another group of wonderful people who were looking to learn more about their spiritual experiences. My Psychic and Mediumship classes are aimed at real beginners who haven’t yet explored the what, why and how’s of their gifts. I’ve done a number of these workshops now but I am not the most confident person around so I do get a little nervous. But yesterday I asked spirit to help me overcome my fear and just let me flow with it. And boy did they help! The feedback from the participants made me cry! In a good way of course.  I work with the heart and genuinely want to help people embrace their spiritual experiences in a positive way so this really means the world to me.

“Angela is a very warm and honest person. I personally enjoyed the workshop, thank you”

” A great opportunity to work with like minded people in a supportive environment, thank you”

“Its a great opportunity and meeting like minded people. Workshop was good, very informative, Angela presented herself very well”

“The content was comprehensive and well thought through” 

“Enjoyable, relaxed, easy to follow instructions, feel relaxed, group were nice to work with and pleasant atmosphere” 

The feedback during and after the workshop was excellent and our experiences during the exercises was magical. We had two ladies who were particularly advanced in the sense that they were into yoga and healing, therefore used to working with their chakra system. Their solar plexus were spinning away so much at one point they  almost took off! It did however enhance their experience yesterday and it was wonderful for the others to also see how one person’s experience is different to the other. But it also emphasised the need, as we grow spiritually, to keep the energy flowing through your chakras.

I received a name during one of the meditations I led earlier on the day and I am not a names, dates and places sort of medium. I know some whose USP is being able to bring forward names of the spirit contact straight away which is very impressive especially during demonstrations. But for some reason, spirit do not work with me that way. They provide  lots of details usually  information about their personality, how they looked, where they lived , how they passed,  people they cared about and very very occasionally, names. But yesterday I felt it was important to let the participants know that a name was given. True enough it was taken and it was her best friend who passed a few years ago. So you see even as a teacher, you learn and develop as you teach. You can never be arrogant enough to think that you know EVERYTHING. The learning never stops!

Every time we open up a channel for spirit to work with us, you will have an audience of spirit people who may or may not be connected to the people in the room. We had a few random spirits come forward to us yesterday who were very lovely and just wanted to be acknowledged. I love it when they do because it is important for people who are developing to understand that you are not going to always connect with people you know and  to respect their connection regardless.

It warmed my heart to see them do so well and gain a lot more confidence as the day progressed. The hugs I received at the end was so special and gave me such a buzz all day!

Thank you to all the lovely ladies who stepped into their true potential yesterday and I can’t wait to see them again!

I only took a few pictures yesterday as I was so busy but here are some of the lovely ladies

Have a lovely weekend everyone!

Spiritual Boundaries

I was reluctant to tell people that I could see, hear and sense Spirit when I was younger. You feel put on the spot and at times, a performing circus act. “So who is here now then? “Is this place haunted? “Shall I call you Mystic Meg now? All sorts of questions and comments would come flying and I used to feel so overwhelmed. So I clammed up and made my Spiritual awareness a dirty little secret. The Spirit world were cruel though. They would swamp me with so much sensitivity that I would blab to people around me thinking they “needed” to hear the messages. I didn’t realise that it was more important to know if they “want” the message. When someone is not ready or interested, then it could freak people out and often cause confusion. There is a right place and time for it. I remember telling a friend that there was a negative energy in his house which he needed to clear and as he was a non believer, broke off our friendship. He didn’t like receiving the message especially as he had just rented the property. Sure enough there was an incident afterwards but he still refused to talk to me. I was incredibly hurt and couldn’t understand his anger  when all I was trying to do was help. This is a trap that spiritually aware folks fall into. We get so wrapped up in our ability which allows us to have insight that others don’t that we go beyond the call of duty. 

The lesson I learned is that unless someone asks, don’t jump in and assume that they need to know what you know. Spiritual awakening is one thing but living with it is all about respect, boundaries and knowing when to say something and when to keep quiet. 

For some people who have had spiritual awakening  later in life, it is natural to feel like you need to shout it out from the rooftops. I have seen some who go from one extreme to the other or seem to be an overnight expert in everything. Obviously one of us can really know exactly what each person is going through but this is my take on it. Give yourself time to truly understand what YOU are going through and be comfortable with it first. It is like getting an email from National Lottery saying you have won a prize on the latest draw but instead of checking how much you won, what numbers were successful and how this will change your life etc, you run off announcing to the world that you won. You’ve made plans to celebrate, told everyone, planned out what you want to buy and so on. But then obviously what if the prize was £100 and not the £1 million you envisioned? 

I know I am not being too conservative when I say, take your time, be sensible, be in the here and now before you react. I feel the longevity of your spirituality will be enhanced by being a little cautious at the start. It took me years before I truly accepted my spiritual self  and nearly 32 years before I responded to my calling, which is to work with the spiritual world. I am truly humbled to hear of how some of the renowned mediums, some of who I have had the privilege of training under, spent years in development before they even considered being one. I regularly spend time and money to develop my abilities and expand my knowledge. I sit in meditation to allow my Spirit family to teach me. Who best to teach you about the Spirit world than the discarnate? 

I didn’t grow up in an environment where positive spiritual development and circles were available so I did most of it myself and through the help of my spiritual influencers. But I have learned the hard way of putting boundaries in place, instilling respect in yourself and in the spirit world, and most of all, trusting yourself.

Join my on my latest workshop on February 27th (details below) if you would like to learn more.

Speaking to my father

I was asked to contribute to an article on talking to parents after death. I decided to do this because it was something I do and believe in. In the days before I fully embraced my mediumship, I spoke to my dad to help me heal my grief. I was in such a difficult place emotionally and I was struggling with the situation I found myself in. Trying to deal with the death of someone who had such a strong and definite influence in my life was difficult. People like that leave a huge void. My father was no saint but he was also my saviour in many ways. So I would speak to him in my mind, sometimes ask for answers before going to sleep or even during meditation. I remember very clearly the very first time I was umming and ahing about going to the Arthur Findlay Spiritual college. It was a huge decision for me. The cost was one thing but to dedicate 7 days to try to understand my spirituality and mediumship was a big commitment. The fear that I would go all the way there and find out I wasn’t gifted in anyway was massive. I wanted to go but then I didn’t feel I was good enough. The course was on the Saturday but on Thursday night I was still undecided and hadn’t booked. That night I asked my father — should I go? Is this what I should be doing? I went to bed with more questions than answers. In my dream, my father came into the house and sat down on the dining table. I was sat there with lots of different brochures and leaflets. He sat there with his favourite whisky, speaking to me.. debating the pros and cons. As I was waking up, I heard myself say “go to Arthur Findlay College”. I knew that was the answer to my question the night before. Of course as a skeptic I thought well it was probably my imagination but as I lay there feeling this message, I felt my father’s presence and I had a deep sense of knowing of the details of the dream. I said to myself, well its probably too late anyway as AFC is very international and courses and the rooms tend to be fully booked months in advanced so what chance would I have less than 24 hours before the day? I called them anyway expecting to be rejected and guess what…..they had ONE room left. Someone cancelled their booking so I could take their place ! I have never doubted his support and his messages since that day. He is very much my influence and inspiration in my wonderful journey. It is very apt that this article appears on NYE and on the day I remember him the most.

I would like to comment on the headline which is a tad misleading. I don’t think any of us insisted that our relationship is better now than when they were alive. My case is a little different as a Medium, I can send and receive messages from the Spirit world so yes I have been given knowledge about my father and why he was the way he was, which has allowed me to get past his flaws and there is no longer that barrier which was here in the physical world.Apart from speaking and communicating with him, I also get signs and visits from him. I am humbled and grateful that I do as its been a very important part of my journey so far.

The article does not highlight the fact that I am a Medium and I believe that was meant to be. I would prefer people see the story for what it is — a relationship between a daughter and her father rather than a medium and a contact.

I do hope that anyone reading this today will find some comfort from all of us who shared our stories. I could barely speak to the journalist during the interview as I was so choked up.

A Prayer for Life

I wrote this sometime ago and use it whenever I feel a need to ground myself deeply. We begin each day with so much routine and very little time. We run through our days like water through a sieve, but there are times where you just have to stop and say thank you. Christmas is a time of reflection and the start of not only the festive period full of fun and gatherings but of taking stock of our lives. Soon it will be new year’s eve and we stop to look at all the goals we set at the beginning of the year, the people we have lost along the way, the new ones that joined us and the memories we have etched onto our timeline.

Before you start a new goal, a new diet, a new direction, stop and say thank you. Whether you know it or not, you have had help.

Even in the darkest lowest moment of your life……someone out there reached out and pulled you out of that situation, to stand up and move forward.

It could have been a good friend,  a relative in spirit or finding a letter with some inspirational words. It could well have been a beautiful butterfly that sat on your lap as you cried or a quote on your newsfeed on Facebook. There was a force unknown to you that was behind every single action and reaction. 

Someone messaged me to ask for a prayer for forgiveness and about saying thank you. I shared this prayer I wrote with her. I channeled this prayer from my Spirit Guide who is an old Indian sage holyman who was deeply philosophical. Sometimes when I share my writings, its always starts with one theme and then goes a little off centre only for it to come together at the end. He doesn’t come to me often but when he does it is always in a very soft, nurturing and loving way. When I channel him, I allow it to happen naturally without trying to control his words or flow so I write as he speaks.

I feel this will be a lovely thing for you to have as stress levels are high and patience is low.this week with the Full Moon on Christmas day. Take a minute to yourself. Close your eyes, take three deep breaths and then open your eyes and read this aloud. If a particular word or sentence resonates with you deeply then stop and let your thoughts wonder to a situation or someone. It may be that you need to forgive someone who has done you wrong and it has been really difficult to do it because of how they made you feel. Don’t think about the need to forgive, think about the feelings they evoked or continue to evoke in you when you think about them or the situation. Release those feelings to the Angels and move on. Let the Angels take care of it so that  you no longer associate the negative feelings with that person so it will be easier to forgive and move on. Once you have finished the prayer just close your eyes once again and say thank you.

Please share with your friends and family. You never know how much someone needs this especially at this time of the year.

Prayer for life

Supermoon October 27 2015 – Your true potential

Supermoon October 27 2015 – Your true potential

The final super moon of 2015 is heading our way tomorrow. The energies from the last two supermoons in August and September has been intense and some of us have been put through the mill but some of us have showed ‘em who is boss and stepped into your true potential.

Take a step back now and think about what has been happening since August. How did you deal with a difficult time? Did you hear news that broke your heart and your world? The question is…..not what but “how” did you deal with it? Did you let self-pity and remorse swallow you or did you take action?  In every negative action or situation, there is a double positive waiting to happen. Learning lessons await in every situation. Unfortunately most of us close our hearts the moment something bad happens. Bad can mean different things to different people. It could be not being able to get a ticket to a concert, failing an exam, finding out you have a medical condition, a cancelled holiday, breaking up with your partner to something so devastating as losing a loved one.

If I look back on my life, I can now see that while my last big breakup was devastating, I now see that it spurred me to make a life changing decision to move to the UK. I would never had done that if I had just let that relationship define me. I kept getting signs – synchronicity was happening all the time and dreams were vivid at that time. I remember waking up one day and the thought of moving came into my mind. With heart break and fear, clouding my mind, I initially dismissed it. But then the more I thought about it, my heart opened up and I started to picture myself in London. Obviously I was thinking of the likes of Notting Hill and Kensington, not the reality of Tooting Broadway! But the more my heart was open, I was able to really connect to the vision. I listened to my intuition and took action even though I had barely any money to my name or knew anyone in London.  I am truly grateful as I met my husband at the end of my first year and married him two years ago! I would never have met him if I stayed where I was.

How about someone who just heard they have cancer and have six months to live? There is no right or wrong way to deal with that sort of news. Some of us may be strong enough to contemplate spending the first few months running a campaign to raise funds for cancer research for example. Some of us may change the lives of people around us for the better through finances or by being an inspiration.  There could a child in the family who would go on to study medicine to help find a cure for cancer. The possibilities are endless! There is possibility in imPOSSIBLE.

So reflect on all that has happened in the last few months and how you have dealt with it.  Write it down on paper or electronically – whatever is easier for you! You need three columns – one for when, what and how. When it happened, what happened and how you dealt with it. You can add a fourth column – outcome.

Someone came to see me a few months ago and the reading was all about her taking charge of her life, acknowledging what was happening and making things happen. I saw her twice and the message didn’t changed, except for some more additional information. There was only so much a reading can do…nothing will change unless you do! Since then I have seen how she has taken something that has made her so unhappy and turned it into an inspiration to help other people. I can see how much confidence and self-worth she has gained in such a short time. She has also found her voice! I can see from the side lines how she dealt with the issue and the outcome. It’s a big deal so don’t dismiss it. Putting it on paper or where you can go back now and then to update and reflect on what has happened and how far you have come. It also allows us to evaluate where we are now and put everything into perspective.

So now as we prepare for the last Supermoon of 2015 – put everything you want and solutions to your struggles on your list.  Don’t let anything – emotions or situations push you into negativity! Try to be positive and keep a clear mind.

Please be grateful for everything you have and thank the universe for the help that has come your way so far. Put your wishes on a list, burn them tomorrow night before you go to bed and don’t forget to put your crystals out.
