Phenomena Created By Spirit People As Evidence

phenomenaOne of the things I have been working for over the last twelve years are phenomena created by my Guide Team that have a physical impact on the world. When these happen each one is a piece of evidence that our two worlds really can interact with each other.

I had no plan to go looking for physical occurrences that had no human interaction involved. I was too much of a sceptic to allow that Guides could affect my physical reality. Even when I was learning to communicate with them. But I had a lingering fascination with what is called physical mediumship. And probably not much understanding of it either. Yet physical phenomena have been reported since the beginnings of what we now call Spiritualism. The dictionary describes a phenomenon as ‘a fact or situation that is observed to exist or happen, especially one whose cause or explanation is in question’. In reports from seances all over the world there are physical events that seem to defy any explanation.

Most people have heard of ectoplasm, a substance produced by a medium when in a trance. Some people have heard about noises and tables moving. Yet there are also other things like apports (objects appearing that where not there before), temperature changes or voices speaking around the room. Most of these are said to happen only in blacked out rooms or with red light. And often these phenomena occur very infrequently. Or not at all if the circumstances aren’t right. So I was bemused when I started to find physical things happening around me rather than in me. Being clairsentient I was, of course, used to feeling like I was being touched by my Guides and the visiting Spirit people. Discovering that they could also affect the temperature and light in the room was a surprise.

Over time I got used to the phenomena happening around me.

Working as a Trance medium also helped me to understand how the phenomena could occur. So it was through that interest that my Guide Team led me into the production of physical phenomena. They created the circumstances where I could work with different groups of people, in all sorts of settings and conditions, where these physical things could happen. Over and over agin I have been present when noises have been produced, lighting altered or ectoplasm started to form. Unusually for me I have been less questioning than normal. It’s is hard to dispute with the evidence I have observed for myself. Instead I have been interested about why my Guide Team spend so much effort letting us know they can also work in our physical world.

The answer has always been the same. Whenever I have asked they have talked about their desire to let us know that they exist. That some part of me will continue after my human body disappears. Interacting with our reality is a good way to say, unmistakably, they are still here. And to say it in ways that I can understand. Because I have been present as it has happened. I have to say that their approach has been the best one for me. I am much more open to their presence because of what I have experienced. And keen to show and share with other people the phenomena that can provide evidence to them too. This kind of physical activity gives me a lot of comfort. I have heard the sounds, seen the tables move, had morse code tapped out using a glass ornament. Along with a lot more.

I enjoy working with my Guide Team to produce these phenomena. It is a very tangible and substantial way to evidence the presence of Spirit people. Along with being a great way for any Doubting Thomas like me to discover life is really eternal.

Silent Whisper: An Evening Of Trance

silent tranceThis evening I visited Silent Whisper Spiritual Centre to do a demonstration of trance mediumship. I love this way of working. It was actually the first public mediumship I ever did. And it has been a fascination of mine for the last twelve years.

It was a really special evening in many ways. First of all my daughter sat with me for the first time. She has seen me work as a platform medium since she was very young. However tonight was the first time she sat and joined energy with me to help the transformations occur. We both felt the bond between us strengthen in the loving energy that flowed from the Spirit people and out Guides. Secondly, my Guides organised everything wonderfully because there were some people who were attending a trance demo for the first time. Because my Guides treat the demo as a time for laughter and love they were very keen to break the initial silence people feel they must hold. My trance demos are never silent.

Except, of course, if you count me. As I am also developing my physical mediumship and direct voice I normally stay silent. It’s a good thing for another reason too. There are usually so many people wanting to show themselves and be acknowledged that they don’t get time to talk. My Guides try to let each Spirit person alter my appearance as quickly as possible until their loved ones see and recognise them. Then my Guides move on to the next in the queue. Even though I am silent I love the way that the Spirit people do manage to give a yes. They always lift my index finger to say that it’s them. Except tonight. For one very special moment when a loved on from the Spirit side made a thumbs up with my hand. A piece proof with love for the person on this side of life.

Being silent doesn’t mean that our loved ones can’t whisper to us in their own special way.  That’s what trance is all about. Seeing the face of someone you miss appearing on the medium in front of you is like a great big shout. A shout of ‘I still love you. I’m still present in your life. And I’m safe and well.’ No wonder I love doing this work!

Guide Power!

ZuluGuideIt seems that now I’ve started with Wolf Running some of the others in my Guide team would like a mention. I love that there are so many helpers available to me. It’s awe-inspiring.

Over the years I’ve been fascinated by the way that my Guides have shifted around. One steps in whilst another steps out. One has a skill with crystals, another with public speaking and a third with energy healing. I have to say that I originally thought I would only have one Guide. Some of the books I read and the events I attended gave that impression. It was odd to notice that Wolf Running was stepping out of connection sometimes and that someone else was working with me. His energy was so familiar and safe. What were others doing stepping into his place?

I was used to Spirit people bringing messages. Why where these other Spirit people hanging around and not giving messages to their loved ones? Gradually the light dawned. They expected to be able to work with me too. I have to admit that I got very challenging when it happened the first time. The Pastor started to appear during my church or spiritual centre demonstrations. He was rather too stern for my liking. Good at philosophy but serious with it. He needed to get his points across. The messages were certainly different to what I was used to. So I did my usual. I had a wobbly.

Annie the Amazon

I can go in guns blazing if necessary. It’s not something I do often. The Pastor got both barrels and so did Wolf Running. I didn’t want to change the way I worked. I wanted the security of my Gatekeeper. Why should I work with anyone else? I held out for six weeks. The Pastor kept bouncing in at every service I did. I struggled to get a decent link most of the time. Afterwards I would strongly debate with my Gatekeeper why change was necessary. He was very patient. So was the Pastor. A good man but a fundamentalist at heart when he was down here. Of course a part of me knew I was on the loosing side already. I wanted to give messages because I knew how much people benefited from the hope their loved ones brought.

One evening I stood up to give some wise words (my term for a philosophy, sermon, address or whatever you want to call it). The Pastor stepped in close and started to speak. His words were so moving I found myself almost in tears. He spoke from the heart about love. He explained why we had to work hard to love ourselves and each other. The words he used were simple. Afterwards people thanked me for the words that had been spoken. I had already realised why I had to work with him. His compassion as a Spirit being was based on the lack of compassion he had here in his human life. He wanted to be different. I was giving him a chance to heal his karma. It was a very special moment.

Bring in the Children

The Pastor and I worked together for a couple of years. He taught me to be precise in what I spoke on behalf of the Spirit World. I understood his need for me to be serious and learn my trade so to speak. I learned that my service of passing on evidence and messages was a privilege that could’t be taken lightly. We found a way to share the same energy together and make it work. Settling into my stride I did still think he was the only other Guide I would have. Until one day I was driving to a church and found myself laughing over nothing. The Children had joined me.

There are quite a few children. They like my energy apparently. They love to play. I was ready for a break from serious and they were perfect. As they liked to play I often found myself in a game hide and seek with one or more of them. They also loved to play with pendulums. Great for paranormal nights when I would ask them to get the energy moving. They were aged from about 3 to 12 years old. I felt like they had decided to shake me up a bit. I loved their energy as they flew around the room or got people giggling. The Children have been wonderful Guides. I discovered the child-like side of me that wanted to play too. I certainly had some adventures in their company. They pop back in every now and again when I’m ready to play some more.

Time for Trance

There was another adventure that the Children and the Pastor had to step back from. This was my journey into Trance Mediumship. I’m fascinated by the mind. By how we can be in altered states of consciousness that appear as real as this reality I feel I’m conscious in now. To discover that there were states of consciousness where Energy Beings could communicate in a deeper fashion was exciting. I needed to explore. But I needed a Guide who could help me to do so. As my Guide team shuffled around once more I met my Trance Guide. My young Zulu warrior can out of a meditation. Walking out of the sunlight across a sandy plain with scrubby grass. I’m always ready to challenge what I get. I called on Wolf Running. I wanted to check out this new person. Would he really keep me safe? Could I trust him?

Of course it was a yes. I had been sent a Guide experienced in patience (not my strong point) who would steady me whilst I learned to give over control of my conscious mind. I was delighted that the adventure could begin. I suppose I was trying to run before `i could walk. I gradually learned to slow down. To be patient with myself. To listen to the few words my Zulu Guide gave me. To follow his lead by reading his energy. In time I was able to work in deeper altered states. I could show people changes that took place to my appearance. Spirit people could speak through me in nearly their own voice. Then I found I couldn’t speak at all.

Moving on to new challenges

When I stopped speaking in trance my Zulu friend stepped back. It was time for me to begin another journey. New Guides would be coming in. I am working with a new part of my team to develop Direct Voice. This is a form of mediumship where the Energy Beings speak but without using my vocal chords. I’m interested to see what will happen. I know that the right Guides will be with me on this journey too. The team is always just who it ought to be.

I love having a team around me. I know that whatever expertise I need will always be on hand. I am so glad to find that I have more than one individual supporting my spiritual development. I love the freshness of each day when I find out who is by my side. I also love that at any given moment there is more than one Being looking out for me. My team have stood the test of my questioning, arguing and resisting. I hope you are inspired to find out who is in your team. You have more help than perhaps you realise at the moment. Enjoy the adventure of finding out!
