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.

As I said before we learn through making mistakes and believe me I’ve made lots, every medium has a story to tell and it will be a life of ups and downs but none of us would change any of it. When we go through hard times it doesn’t feel like this but when you look back on your life you will see your life like a jigsaw, how one part had to happen to create another aspect, how each part came together like pieces of a jigsaw. You will realize just how much you have learned about life and you will come to accept these challenges we all face and it does in a way bring contentment.

I can’t speak for all mediums but I can share my experiences and from this you will start to understand what life is about.

What we all have in common as well as some tough times is a sensitivity, people will say you are too sensitive as it’s a bad thing to be, but to be a medium it’s a wonderful thing to be. Being sensitive enables us to tune into spirit and how people are feeling, we pick up atmospheres, know when something is not right and can understand how others feel. Chances are you’ve been like this from birth, your parents may have labeled you as being highly strung and or you may have cried a lot as a baby. This will have driven your parents to distraction at the time, we are often clingy children and pick up the moods of how are parents and siblings feel and if they feel unhappy and or stressed we will too. Trouble is at such a young age babies are not able to convey how they feel, and just know they are sad and unable to differentiate between what are their feelings and those of others.

Babies are naturally sensitive after all they have just recently been incarnated from spirit so they haven’t quite lost that memory of the spirit realms. It’s not uncommon to find babies staring at something you cannot see as they haven’t yet completed the full transition to life on earth.


The silent stars go by

Smiling down from velvet sky

An angel strokes your tiny head

As cherubs gather around your bed

Never will you walk alone

Never will you face the dark all alone

If ever there was a baby angel bright

To light up the darkness of the night

You are a special divine tiny one

A little piece of heaven a chosen one

Your sweet gurgles of contentment as they lullaby

As cherubs sprinkle sleepy dust in your eyes

Good night baby angel whom God has sent

Sleep peacefully darling I am blessed

However this does not mean every baby has the ability to become a medium for through day to day living gradually memories of the other side are lost. Parents will tell you it’s your imagination and the majority will forget. Those who are destined to become mediums will not, that sensitivity will never leave us and it’s this sensitivity that can make us appear odd, like we feel different and more often than not our peer groups will notice. Children can be very cruel and it’s not unusual for the sensitive child to become the victim of bullies precisely because we are different.

The sensitive child has a very active imagination, this is no bad thing it leads to creativity and deep thinking and its this thoughtfulness that leads to world changes and development. If you have a sensitive child support and be proud of them for they will make a difference to others’ lives in the world as they grow up. 

Our souls are at different development levels with some being older souls than others and the older the soul the more spiritual you will be. This is because older souls have experienced more incarnations (lifetimes) so have much more experience of different challenges of these lifetimes they have learned a lot, been to earth’s classroom a lot more so are more spiritually educated.

You may not think it but each lifetime has a blueprint, it has planned guidelines of lessons we wish to experience. These blueprints have not been written by spiritual guides or mentors but by ourselves for we wish to experience both sides of a situation, the good and the bad, so we have a greater understanding. We cannot blame anyone else for our lives, life is what we make it, and we can turn the most negative situation to a positive one and this leads us to a very important lesson in our development that of ‘Acceptance. 

Acceptance doesn’t mean you take what life throws at you and become a door mat, far from it, rather it means taking up the challenge and doing it in a positive way. For example, supposing you are finding it difficult to get a job, it certainly shouldn’t mean you just accept this and think, well it looks like I’m going to be dependent on welfare. Positively viewing it this way and thinking, ok I don’t have a job just now but I’m not going to sit at home all day, I will actively look and visit premises where there are none advertised just now and volunteer your services for free. In fact entering the volunteer service not only will raise your esteem and confidence, you will find it rewarding. Possible employers will see you working and see what you have to offer and it will enable you to build up references and add the experience to your CV. 

Acceptance can cover many situations that is just one example I’m sure you can think of many more. It’s all about taking a problem which is negative and turning it into a challenge which is positive. In the universe ‘like attracts like’ so the more positive you make your life the more positive energy will come your way.

I do appreciate it’s hard to change a pessimistic mind set, but if you take baby steps and say take one day at a time, you will be surprised at what life can bring you.

There is no doubt acceptance is a tough lesson and I have questioned it myself in the past, I would not be writing this book if I hadn’t gone through an acceptance lesson. It’s only when you have gone through a situation and you reflect back you can see what you have learned for no experience in life is every wasted, all are designed to teach us something.

I often write during the night as I do automatic writing and channel philosophy from Spirit and one night this message came through. I had been seeking the answers to a question I had asked and this was my given answer.

It's necessary as we grow more spiritual to undertake challenges, this happens not just in our present lifetime but in ALL our lifetimes, to undertake all kinds of pain. Of all those emotional is the hardest of all. For in emotional pain the message and lesson within touches the soul. Physical pain only affects the earthly body and can be solved, there are many advances in medicine to deal with this. Only a kindred soul who has gone through and felt emotional pain has the skills and experience to empathise and can truly unburden others. 

As you develop spiritually you will do more good by allowing others unburden their emotional pain onto you for you are the key to their release. This undertaking is tough but necessary your time just now is making keys of which there are many. One day you will have a full set. See yourself as a seeker of knowledge. 

The day will come when you are akin to a sponge when you cannot take in anymore, it is then you will have achieved full spiritual growth. Do not fight this. Your lesson is acceptance know this is so. remember one cancels out the other.

It's a very true saying no one can ever understand unless they have walked a mile in anothers shoes.

Remember too, "Compensation and Retribution for all souls" you will never go unrewarded for those you help

Life isn’t fair, it was never intended to be, life is a series of challenges each with a lesson that will enrich our lives and enable you to help others.

Remember this book is not about how you should develop your abilities but my philosophy and how I developed my mediumship. If it gives you tips along the way that is great and you may well see some similarities everyone is unique and we all develop our abilities at our own rate and the right time for us.

I can give you some exercises to help your development and I will throughout this book but you can’t force it for you cannot change what you alone planned before you incarnated.

Which leads me on to the different energies and spiritual planes and the difference between psychics and mediums.

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.
