I am a great believer in Karma, but just what is it? Karma comes from the Sanskrit and ancient Indian Language with the underlying principal that every deed in our lives will affect our future life. For example, if we treat others badly during our lifetime we will have negative experiences later on in that lifetime or in future lifetimes. Likewise, if we treat others well we will be rewarded by positive experiences.

PLEASE CAN YOU HELP IN THE SPIRIT OF CHRISTMAS


















An arson probe has been launched after heartless firestarters targeted a charity which helps seriously ill children.

Donna’s Dream House in Blackpool has been forced to close and cancel Christmas breaks for the families it helps.

Intruders, who broke in yesterday, set fire to pictures and mementoes of Donna Curtis – in whose memory the charity was set up – as well as part of the Dream House’s Chapel Street building.

Donna’s father Len today spoke of his heartbreak – but said he was determined the centre, which provides holidays for seriously ill children and their families, would re-open as soon as possible.

Mr Curtis said: “We are devastated. We have lost a lot of personal mementoes of Donna because the fire was in the main administration block which also houses my office.

“Whoever has done this has piled everything up including photographs of her in the middle of the room and set it on fire.

“There is an awful lot of heartbreak and memories that have gone up in smoke and they cannot be replaced.

“Donna died on New Year’s Day so this is always a difficult time of year for us as it is.

“The thieves have also broken into the health suite where the sauna and whirlpool bath are and damaged all that. It has put us out of business over Christmas and we’ll have to move families elsewhere.

“However we’ll be working over Christmas to get back up and running by January.”

Firefighters were called to the Dream House just before 7am after a milkman making deliveries raised the alarm.

An office building was well alight but crews were able to prevent the flames spreading further.

No-one was inside at the time, and a family staying in adjacent overnight accommodation were unaffected.

Detectives, who were today examining CCTV footage and using forensic tests to catch the culprits, appealed for anyone with information to come forward.

Det Sgt Paddy Dowling, of Blackpool CID, said: “The source of the fire is suspicious and at this stage we believe the fire has been lit in order to destroy evidence of a burglary.

“There is no doubt without the intervention of the milkman, the whole of the office building would have been completely destroyed.

“We find it incredible thieves would target such a well known and established charity for personal gain, but it beggars belief they would attempt to destroy the property knowing it will have a direct impact on terminally ill children.

“We would appeal to anyone who has any information about the incident or the whereabouts of the stolen property to contact us immediately.”

The items stolen include a flat screen TV, several lap top computers and camera equipment.

Andrew Jones, crew manager at Blackpool Fire Station, said: “When we arrived it was a well developed fire and we used two hose reels to tackle it but we managed to contain it. There wasn’t anyone in the building but there were children staying with their family in adjacent accommodation.”

Donna Curtis died from cancer in 1996, aged just 20. Her parents fulfilled her dying wish which was to help terminally ill children when they set up their charity, with the present premises opening in 2002.

Anyone with information can call Blackpool Police on (01253) 293933 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

>> A list of names of families due to receive Christmas presents from Donna’s Dream House has also been lost in the fire. Anyone on the list should contact the charity on (01253) 752222.

The Donna's Dream House Charity in Blackpool is a locally based trust providing free holiday experiences for children and teenagers with life-threatening illnesses and their families, and for recently bereaved siblings and their families

PSYCHIC QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS

PSYCHIC QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS

IS IT REALLY POSSIBLE TO FORECAST THE FUTURE AND OTHER QUESTIONS?

I am often asked various questions pertaining to the spirit world and various aspects of the psychic, here are some of them: I will in time feature more questions and answers as this webpage evolves

Q. Is a psychic or medium a fortune teller?
A. It may surprise you to know psychics and mediums are not fortune tellers
Q. Is it possible to forecast the future?
A.Well not 100% and this is because of free will.
Q. What is free will?
A. Free will is YOUR right to decide what you want to do about a situation, it is a choice
Q. How does free will affect a situation?
A. Well before we incarnate as Spirit in a human body, we decide on what experiences and challenges that will benefit our spiritual growth. However we are given the choice (free will) as to whether we go through with the experience or challenge. In effect we are allowed to change or mind.
Q. So are you saying we all know what lies before us?
A. Well in a way we all do. Remember we are 'Spirit' in a human body and your spirit does retain a memory but it is deep in our subconscious. This memory is retained deeply for a reason to help us fulfill our experiences and challenges we ourselves chose. However it is also at this deep level so we are not so aware. If you knew what lay before you would you go through with it? Probably not but we still retain this memory deeply and this reflects in our Aura.
Q. So what is the Aura?
A.The aura is The Aura is an electromagnetic field that surrounds living bodies, this includes people, animals, plants and crystals and is composed of several layers that are constantly moving. The Aura links us to whats known as Universal energy i.e. that is all the knowledge in the Universe past, present and future. It is on this aura that psychics are able to tap into and access your past, whats going on in the present and the possible future and I say possible specifically if your goal or desire is dependent on other people, for remember every person involved in a situation has free will.
