Gifted or insane

How can you convince someone who doesn’t believe in psychic activity that you are gifted as opposed to insane?

past life

There are so very many people who think or say, “Psychic activity is unreal. I don’t believe it. You cannot make contact with someone who is dead. You cannot know my past, present or future. It’s just not possible”. They think your services are made up or you’re a crank, only out to make money from unsuspecting people.

Nothing could be further from the truth.

It may be easier or more comfortable for some people to shut off their senses and pretend psychic activity is not real.

In the words of Peter Jackson, a  Medium at The Spiritual Truth Centre, St Helens, UK,

“You can’t actually convince someone who doesn’t believe and who doesn’t want to believe. Either their belief will come, or it won’t. The only way to prove it is to try it out in practice.”

An Intro to Tarot Cards

An Intro to Tarot Cards


Tarot cards have a mixed reception across the world, some will describe them with a negative outlook

But this of course is not the case for everyone.  For many (used properly) the Tarot cards are a release from what has been a difficult period in the sitters life.  And a sign that the potential is there for it to get better.  For some however, the very mention of Tarot cards strikes fear in to their very heart.


The general reason for tarot having a bad name is that many religions would condemn anything that was esoteric or not in line with their beliefs. There are still many people that still condemn the cards as evil.  The Catholic Church allegedly call them the devils picture book

An overview of my Mediumship

An overview of my Mediumship

An overview of my Mediumship


Today I want to talk about the various aspects of my profession and break it down into categories which I hope you will not only find interesting but will answer some of the questions you may have about the Mediumship.

When I speak to people as a whole and mention that I am a Spiritual Medium, they are fascinated and mostly request an on the spot reading.

I always politely refuse and explain that a reading is a very special and personal thing that should not be given halfheartedly in the middle of a street or office and without time to prepare your own spirit.

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas


From the Spiritual Truth Centre

Being a spiritual person in 2014 or in any year is very difficult.

There are so many negative things happening around the world, and the Media is full of stories of disasters and tragedies.

Even the mad rush to buy last minute pressies and food before Christmas causes mayhem and frustration.  Queues 9 deep at the supermarket, Trolleys and shoppers going in to attack mode as soon as they enter the supermarket, and even the most spiritual people tend to develop the Angry Shopper Syndrome, and release a mouthful of language that could quite possibly be a prayer in Latin (but I doubt that is what it is) Continue reading »

My thoughts on Spiritualism


It is always interesting and enjoyable to speak at length to fellow mediums about their understanding of spiritualism.

It is also important that as spiritualists we are able to sit and debate, and put our point across constructively without malice or anger.  It would be wrong and quite arrogant of us to insist that our way is the only way, and would certainly stop us from growth within our own spirit


Although the core beliefs are the same, the understanding of the logistics and the mechanics vary considerably from medium to medium. Continue reading »

You can’t read for all of the people all of the time

Pete dem 5

Over the years of my development, I have built my relationship with my inner spirit, the spirit world, and those that come to me for readings, tutoring, demonstrations, or just for a cuppa.

I love what I do, and if there ever came a day where my passion went away, then I would say thank you and move on.

It never has, and never will be about the money, although we do live in a material world and have bills to pay.  That said it has to be a passion and not just a job.

About us Mediums


As Mediums when we choose to communicate and represent the world of spirit, we leave ourselves open to criticism from anyone who feels that it doesn’t fit in with their understanding of how the universe is laid out.

Comments like what are the lottery numbers, what am I thinking, you should already know etc etc etc. I promise you, you are not the first to say it, and you won’t be the last (We really have heard them all)

The development of the Medium

As Mediums or sensitives the chances are that we at least felt or been a little different as children

Some of us would have had vivid dreams, spirit friends, some would have difficult childhoods

The variant is enormous.

People used to say to me “if the spirit world want you to work, it will happen” which to me contradicted the free will theory

I now know it is a calling from our own spirit and that that we are all spirit within a physical body calling out to our counterparts like a chick calling for its mother.


Our spirit is unique, and yet part of a greater force, part of the universal energy that permeates around every living thing.  Therefore it is logical that some of us will develop our mediumistic abilities at some time in our life to communicate a message from the world of spirit to human kind.

The timing of that development is of course dictated by the structure of our lives, and some of us never follow that path simply because of circumstance.

When you do decide to follow the path and start to develop you awareness, it is sometimes a thankless task, and will bring you so much frustration in the early days (and throughout your development) However the rewards are certainly worth it since you are talking to the loved ones that have gone before us, you are the representative of the world of spirit, there to uplift and reassure those that have suffered tragic losses and bring the 2 worlds together.

The more you develop the more sensitive you will become and sometime you will be an emotional wreck.  This is why we have to remember to develop ourselves just as much as we develop our senses.  Even more so ourselves.

If we are not right in ourselves, then our mediumship will not be right.

Remember that the happier and comfortable that you and your own spirit are, the higher your vibration, so therefore the better the communication will be.

Are you a nice person?

When you look at yourself who do you see?  Are you angry with the world or some of it? Are you in touch constantly with all you family and friends? Are any of them in need of help? How do you feel about the world today, with the violence and tyranny?

People have their lives to live and their choices to make, but as spiritual people the level we would look to attain is that of understanding and non judgement. To see every situation from its own perspective and give it the help it needs.

Only then I feel would we attain the level that is needed to give the perfect communication.

Until we attain that level we will be who we are whilst trying to understand the world from the perspective of the world of spirit

If we look at spiritualism today in comparison to the early days, I don’t believe there is as much commitment dedication and representation to the spirit world.  When we look to the Mediums that have gone before us they have left a legacy, and they did truly serve and represent the world of spirit.  Not just because they were great mediums, but because they were ambassadors, listening to the needs of the discarnate and incarnate soul alike.

We need to move mediumship forward by understanding ourselves, how we operate and using that understanding to converse with our own spirit.

Remember mental mediumship is subjective and as such

Think positive, and it will be positive
