Recently sitting at home drinking wine relaxing on a warm summers evening, I asked myself and spirit the question “Why Am I A Medium” I know it is my purpose in life to be a channel for spirit, and being a channel for spirit has given me my niche in life where I can shine and contribute to this life, but why am I a channel for spirit, knowing spirit would answer my question through inspiration and synchronicity, it has been a long circular road to this point in time, back to the beginning to start anew, so I needed to know why am I a medium.
Who really knows what they want to be, a question we are asked when we are very young, tinker, tailor, soldier, spy, fireman, train driver, who can truly know what they are to become, life is a long road of choice and the experience of our choices, we get very confused on our journey, as to who and what we are, society and our peers tell us what we should be and become, inwardly we desire to be truly ourselves, and to be living life as to what expresses our innermost being, all I know is that life is a journey of finding ones trueself, and expressing and sharing that truth for the benefit of all.
We all have the beautiful gift of life and creation, our dance of life should be the creation of the best we can be, above all our creation should be love of self, life, and all we do, and to create with love as our power and guide, the essence of the teachings of spirit is love to share with all, it is love of self and life that is our dance, the best dance of all is the dance of service to others.
Many are called but few are chosen Matthew 22:1-14.
We are all called by God ( creation) to walk a spiritual pathway, in service to God to bring enlightenment upliftment, to heal pain to be the messengers of spirit and universal life.
It is those who do not truly have compassion in their hearts, who do not wish to speak spiritual truth from their hearts, those who wish to serve themselves, in the pretence of service to God, who are not chosen.
So why have I been chosen to serve God as a healer and medium, no matter how many times I have fallen off the pathway of service, I always get called back into service, my life’s journey is what it is and I have learned many lessons, the main lesson has been not to try to be normal, but to truly be myself not to seek acceptance of others but to gain acceptance of myself, my eternal connection to God and spirit through my heart, throughout my life I have been called into spiritual service, now the lesson is learned I feel now I am chosen, to serve God and spirit I have accepted myself and my connection, spiritual service is now my focus for the remainder of my earth life, service to God and spirit is the dance of my heart.

Memories far far away in time, of being a young 23 year old medium, just starting out on the spiritualist church circuit, sitting on the doorstep of home seeking inspiration, for the Sunday service address writing notes from my thoughts, my nan would be cooking Sunday dinner, blissful memories of that time.
I find myself today 36 years later, sitting on the decking of mine and Veronica’s home, seeking inspiration for tonight’s Sunday address, for service at Winchester Independent Spiritualist Church, my Veronica cooking Sunday dinner, the intervening years were a journey of self discovery, seeking the truth of what I truly am, a material man or disciple and servant of spirit many dark times ahead due to my bad choices as I endeavoured to balance earth and sky to find my place, in this life.
All through the years spirit have stood by me, especially in the darkest times even when I could not see or feel their presence, spirit were there guiding me to my truth, today I realise I have come full circle, I feel very lucky and truly blessed, that spirit have stood by me through all my bad choices and at times stupidity, the journey is now done and I can continue my path, as a disciple and servant of spirit, I feel so truly blessed for the love and guidance of spirit throughout my life, I say to all who are aware and serve spirit, live your life and truth to the full, because it is a journey of guidance, to the truth of your purpose in this life.
Blessings To All 💜

The spiritual journey in this physical material life has many crossroads, when we have completed a stage of learning and service, a crossroads will appear and give us choices on how we proceed as the old path no longer serves us, as we are meant to progress further to greater service to spirit, a crossroads is a stopping point as we at times struggle to decide in which direction to go and grow, I have often advocated the value of a spiritual crossroads, as a time rest and reflection to realise we no longer need to continue on the same path, and allow spirit to inspire us onto the next step, many think of a spiritual crossroads as a state of inertia, as they cannot see a way forward to the next path.
A spiritual crossroads is there to guide us onto the next part of our journey, and has great value to us who serve spirit, but many do not realise this simple truth by clinging onto past glories and defeats, by doing this they are placing themselves into a state of inertia, because nothing will change as they keep reliving the same old story of what once was, I to fell into that trap by telling all and sundry about what I used to do, I thought people would remember me but soon realised I had been forgotten, I found the new spiritual industry to be a new world, from the spiritual world I had known, and I had to find my niche so I went around telling people what I used to do, my ego told me that platform bookings would soon be flooding in but they did not.
I considered with all my years of experience serving spirit, as a healer and platform medium that my stories could benefit, those people who are aware of spirit and beginning their spiritual journey of service to spirit. I have realised that my stories are no longer relevant to the spiritual industry of today, not many people today want to walk a spiritual path of learning and service, today it all seems to be about fame and money and who is the best, or whether your face fits or not, I have realised on a personal level that my ego was wrong, what I used to do does not matter anymore, my past glories no longer serve me, and now today with only a couple of platform demonstrations to do, and three demonstrations of transfiguration to do, I find myself at a spiritual crossroads.
Where do I go from here I have asked myself, I have asked the universe and my spirit guides if you want me to work with you, why have I so little to do where do we go from here, the universe and spirit guides answered me, my lovely friend Pauline Highams told me that my inspirational memes on facebook and my words have helped her and many others, it is very uplifting and humbling to know that just my five minutes a day, posting thought for the day on facebook is uplifting people, and that my blogs are also helping people gain guidance and upliftment, I recently had a conversation with my lovely Kiwi friend Lesley Wilson who talked to me of a course she was doing with Jarrad Hewett, about owning your own energy she was asked the question, who would you be without your stories, can we let go of our old stories and become the blank page, and abacadabra in a nutshell is what I feel my spiritual crossroads , is teaching me and guiding me to my future pathway, to let go of my irrelevant old stories and become the blank page.
This realisation has given me a breath of inspired fresh air, no longer will my ego bash me over the head, punishing myself for not doing what I think I should be doing, or being where I think I am meant to be, no longer shall I compare myself to others, I shall let go of my past stories to become the blank page, with no expectation of what is to come, focus on my thoughts for the day and spirit inspired writing, living and speaking truths of spirit through an open heart.
