The definition of imagination is the ability of the mind to be creative or resourceful, how many times when faced with a problem in life or at work, we have been asked to use our imagination, or imagination has been derided as the useless pursuit of the day dreamer, imagination only seems to be important when necessary, but I say to you imagination is a very powerful tool for wellbeing and self improvement and spiritual connection, if used properly in our spiritual physical and material lives, individually and collectively we are the creation of what we know as God, a super creative intelligence that has created all things, each and everyone of us has the God given power of creation within us, we are the physical expression of God in human form, as all life on earth is the expression of the mind of God.
Science to this day as far as I know cannot find which part of the brain the mind lives, my spirit guides tell me the mind is the spirit level an energy of the physical human brain, and the conduit for two way communication and interaction between us the universe of God angels and spirit, imagination is the language that facilitates communication between us the universe of God angels and spirit, I was forever the daydreamer, thinking my daydreams were just hopes and fantasies for the future, it was not until I started spiritual development in 1978, I was taught by Berenice Watts that imagination is a tool used for communication with spirit, I have never forgotten her words “you cannot have imagination without an image”, she explained that the creation of an image within the mind, is thought and emotion combined.
As Tesla once said if we wish to understand the universe, we should think in terms of frequency and vibration, all things have their own unique vibration and frequency depending on what we are thinking and the emotion powering the thought, creates the vibrational frequency of the created image, to manifest within the minds eye, imagination happens when we allow our emotion powered thought to run free within our mind, as we are aware that spirit are energy on many levels of consciousness and vibrational frequency, spirit can channel thought and emotion creating images, within our minds eye using our imagination, my first experience of focussing my mental images to communicate with spirit, was my first meditation in Berenice’s spiritual development circle.
We were asked to imagine we are a bird on a cliff top looking out to sea, on a bright sunny day, on the horizon there is a rainbow we were asked to fly out to the rainbow, I imagined myself as a scruffy little bird, I flew out to the rainbow flying through the colours of the rainbow, sensing their beautiful energies I met with Jesus, who welcomed me to this state of consciousness, Jesus said to me ” I am pleased you are here, grow and serve become the light” me as a little scruffy bird sitting at Jesus feet, I was suprised that Jesus would even bother with me, but I felt so blessed to have had my meeting with Jesus, Berenice called us back into the room, where in turn we gave what we experienced in this wonderful meditation, Berenice gave us her interpretation of the symbols we observed and felt, and this was my first true connection with spirit, using meditation as a tool for connection with spirit, for what is meditation it is simply focussed imagination.
Throughout my spiritual development in Berenice Watts circle, imagination was the tool we used to connect with spirit, by creating an image within our minds eye, or by allowing spirit to connect with us by placing an image within our minds eye, the images could be symbolic to convey a situation or the emotional state of someone on their life path, or images of Angels Spirit Guides and loved Ones within our minds eye, also sending us memories and messages they wish to share with us, it is also the vibration ( emotion ) that comes with the image, that allows us to interpret symbols given to us by spirit communicators, colours also have their own meaning and vibrational frequency in symbols, many discard colour when interpreting symbols, but by attuning ourselves to the vibration ( emotion ) of the colour, we can give a better and deeper interpretation of the image, also when we perceive images of Angels and Spirit, we should attune ourselves to the vibrational ( emotional ) frequency of the image, in doing so we are allowing Angels and Spirit to communicate with us, to give the message they want us to receive, Angels and spirit communicate mainly in thought and emotion, it is by connection through the energy of our minds, spirit use thought and emotion to create images to communicate with us, imagination comes in when we converse with Angels and Spirit.
Imagination by creating an image within our minds eye, has many applications in spiritual communication and spiritual service, our thought and emotion created images are energy and as I understand it, all things Angels and Spirit are energy on many levels of vibrational frequency of God, by creating images for spiritual communication and service we are conversing with the mind of God, to create upliftment through spiritual service, Berenice taught how to channel energy by using the power of our imagination, we stood in a circle holding hands we had to imagine our minds eye, the left half being a brilliant white colour, the right half of our mind’s eye being a sapphire blue, we were asked to visualise the white half of our mind’s eye travelling from our mind’s eye, to our neck should arm into the palm of our hands, and visualise it going to the person on our left, we had to energise the colour white with our love, we did the same with the sapphire blue to our right, it was amazing how the colour flowed around our circle, energised by our love making us sway with it’s flow, as I have already discussed colour has its own vibrational ( emotional ) frequency, the general meaning of white is purity cleansing unconditional love, Blue is healing and we could feel the difference in vibrational frequency. as the colour flowed through and around us.
I used Berenice’s teaching of channeling energy for absent healing, by which we channel healing energy to loved one’s who are sick and suffering, in a wider context we can send absent healing all over the world, for all who are suffering in mind body and spirit, or through mans inhumanity to man throughout the world, and mother earth and all species of life on mother earth, by creating the images of the healing colours within our minds eye energising them with our love to our loved ones or wherever we want to focus healing energy to, we must also visualise the focus of our healing within our minds eye, imagine our loved ones, countries, mother earth, the animal kingdom, within our minds eye being immersed in healing colours energised with our love, healing guides in Spirit can also connect with our absent healing, use the vibrational frequency of our loving healing colours and images. to transmit healing energy from the spirit world to the focus of our loving healing energies.
By using the power of imagination to channel and send absent healing, I unwittingly stumbled upon and discovered astral projection, which to me is projecting yourself through the power of your mind and imagination, to another location and you can see and sense what is going on in that location, I had a friend at Slough Spiritualist Church named Sue, she had alot of back pain and at times she would not be able to move with her back pain, every friday night I would send Sue absent healing, I would visualise her within my minds eye, and transmit loving healing energy colours to her via power of my imagination, whilst I was focussing on sending Sue absent healing, I could see an image of a bedroom in my minds eye I was standing to the right of the bed, at the end of the bed was a brass victorian bed frame, with a brown dressing gown draped over it opposite the bed agaainst the wall, was a dressing table with an oval mirror, with a wardrobe to it’s left and a bedroom door to the dressing tables right, everytime I sent Sue absent healing I would see the image of the bedroom within my minds eye.
This went on for a few weeks and I could not work out why I was seeing this bedroom, one night myself and Sue were chatting at Slough Spiritualist Church, she asked me if I sent my absent healing at 10 pm on a Friday night, slightly amazed I said yes I send absent healing the same time every Friday night, she asked me if I saw anything whilst sending absent healing, I told her of the bedroom I could see within my minds eye, whilst sending her absent healing Sue told me I had just described her bedroom in detail, and that she could see my face floating above the right side of her bed, we were both amazed this was happening through absent healing, I asked her if it was bothering her I would stop, and she replied no as her back had recently started to feel much better and a lot less painful, I asked my spiritual teacher Berenice how this could happen, she told me it was astral projection the power of the mental images of healing colours, and transmitting them to Sue via the power of love of and my mind and imagination, had created a link to Sue in her bedroom, that is why I could see her bedroom and she could see my face, people who practice remote viewing use the power of imagination by creating the image of themselves in the place they wish to visit within their minds eye, and they are able to bring back information if what is happening in that place and time.
Everything within the known and unknown universe of God is energy, we are the reflection of God in his image the bible tells us, or perhaps we are the image of God in our collective vibrational frequency in creation, as is all life in it’s own vibrational frequency, I know the power of thought is the most powerful vibrational frequency within the universe, I spoke earlier of the mind of God, the energy of all knowledge and creation, we have been bestowed with the power of thought, to be able to communicate with God, Angels, and Spirit, and all things but to mainly create, the best possible world we can for ourselves and all around us, and we can do this with the power of imagination, I use the word power a lot but we must remember power is a raw product, that can be used for anything we must infuse the power of our thoughts with love for the greater good for ourselves and all, our thoughts and imagination can be used in any area of our lives, for the creation of the greater good.

Christmas is a time when memories of Christmas past, come to the forefront of the mind, Christmas 2010 was to be a Christmas Day of great change for me, although I felt it was my worst time, it was actually the best time of my life, although my life was in tatters, hopes and dreams crushed I felt so abandoned, as if washed up on a sea shore my ship of life wrecked, cast out and alone a mere image of what I once was, I have written much of this time, but as I was looking through my facebook memories, my status for 27/12/10 was “A new journey begins letting go of the past, and embracing a new life”.
All roads lead to somewhere in this life, dependant on the pathway we choose to walk, I have realised that spirit can see the bigger picture of our lives, especially when our faces are in the dirt, and we feel broken and lost, it is most important to be true to ourselves, have faith in ourselves as the true path we wish to walk, will open up to us, the last 8 years have been a amazing time of development, to become we must first grow, I grew by unloading all my mental and emotional crap, becoming at peace with myself yes loving myself, walking a spiritual pathway as a healer and medium, all the progress I have made in life, has taken 8 years we live in a instant world, but inner development to effect progession in our outer world takes time, small steps are required to be taken, by those who seek to develop and progress, be prepared for a journey of soul searching and realisation, a journey of healing and enlightenment, not instant gratification and results, feeling very pleased with myself in 2016, my head and heart were in the best place they had been in years, but I had a question that needed to be answered, would I ever find a lady to truly love, to spend the rest of my days with, I did wonder if I was meant to walk my life pathway alone, but decided to try one last time.
I joined Match.Com yes a dating site you may scoff, but the ladies were not exactly kicking my front door down to date me, I had been on the dating site for almost a year, and was about to delete my account, most of the ladies I spoke to had more baggage than Heathrow, wanted someone a lot wealthier than myself, or turned there nose up at me because of my spiritualism, I was also losing weight due to my diet, and posting images of my slimmer self to the dating site, interest did pick up a bit, but as I said the interest was from all the wrong ladies, one night in June 17 I decided to end my time with Match.Com, when I logged in I noticed I had a wink from a lady, the lady was in fact my Veronica after a couple of weeks texting and chatting, we agreed to meet 13/07/17, I am very empathic and I immediately sensed from Veronica, the warmth and beauty of her heart, this is the girl I am looking for I thought, we clicked and started dating each other, although I lived in Slough and she in Winchester, the distance did not matter, as I know now we were truly falling in love, and we would take it in turns to visit each other when we were not working.
My Veronica August 2017
But living apart and distance did eventually become a problem, as it was becoming harder and harder to leave each other, when our visits came to an end, we had talked of moving in together, I used to say to Veronica it is a nice thought, but it is very scary in practice, and I did not want another life disaster on my hands, if it all went wrong, also giving up my flat in Slough would be a real wrench for me, as I loved my flat it was a lifeboat for me, to heal and rebuild my life, but as our feelings for each other grew. and absence from each other got harder and harder, we finally decided to make a home together, after a lot of talk about whom was moving in with who, myself and Veronica decided that I would move to Hampshire with her, I spoke to my mother and got her blessing, my mother said to me “it would be good for me to get out of the rat race, and into the country” on 08/06/18 I moved to Winchester to live with Veronica, now looking back today 01/01/19, it is the best move I ever made, a real leap of faith but I have landed safely on my feet, myself and Veronica plan to marry in September 19, since moving to Winchester we also use our home as a spiritual centre, I have named Spirit Divine for healing, readings, workshops, and demonstrations of trance, also I am serving new churches, some that I used to serve back in the day, I feel so very blessed today and so glad I took the small steps, inwardly and outwardly to where I am today, although we cannot always see the bigger picture, small steps towards our goals are the answer enjoy the journey, 2018 was a master year, to take charge and put in place everything we want in life, and I feel I have mostly achieved that, and I am very happy to share this with you all.
Thank You For Reading

I am not really sure how to tell you this part of my spiritual journey, as it is not a talked about or researched subject, but is worthy of further investigation for our understanding of, the progression of our spirit after physical death, we always say a nasty, wicked, or evil person will go to hell, when they pass over into spirit, and a good person will go to heaven, and be surrounded by angels when they pass over to spirit, there is a lot of truth in this analogy, because our spirit is what we truly are, spirit guides have told me that we create our own heaven or hell in spirit, by our thoughts, emotions, and actions, here on the earth plane.
Our spirit is energy a consciousness that survives physical death, there are many levels of consciousness within the world of spirit, that we rise or fall to upon the event of our physical death, consciousness can only exist in a level that is vibrating at the same frequency as itself, like attracts like hence why there are many levels of spirit, within the human race there are many different levels of understanding, and this reflects through to the spirit world as above so below.
It is spirits that find themselves on a low level of spirit, that need healing to rise towards the light, and ascend to a higher level of spirit, they are at a low level for many reasons, mainly for dark emotions, thoughts, actions, and deeds on the earth plane, whereby they have selfishly put there own needs above others, or they feel they still have things to do here on the earth plane, to right wrongs or to gain forgiveness from someone living in the physical, or they have died suddenly at an accident or by the hand of another, and they still feel the pain and fear of there physical death, or they simply do not know they have physically died especially if sudden death or they had no knowledge or belief in a afterlife, or believe that there is nothing after physical life, we carry our emotions thoughts and deeds over to spirit as above so below, and they stay close to the earth plane vibrating at a dense physical level.
Spirit vibrating at a low level will come to us for help to help them raise their vibration, and to be guided towards the light there are also spirit guides, that work to help low level spirit to ascend to the light, rescue work circles here on the earth plane work along side spirit guides, and are devoted to helping low level spirit to ascend to the light and higher vibration, and this is where my story begins, back in 1978 when I first started to explore spiritualism, I was sitting for spiritual development and very open to spirit, I had 3 dreams over a period of a few months, each dream was set in a graveyard at night.
The first dream I was walking in a graveyard, and had a very strong sense that I must look for and find one particular grave, I did not know which grave but knew I had to find a grave, although in my dream it was night time, there was a light permeating through the darkness turning my surroundings, to a sort of dark blue and grey, I remember thinking in the dream what am I doing here, but I knew I really must find this grave, although I did not know why I must find the grave, eventually I came across this very large grave, with a stone plinth and a sculptured head of a man on it, with like three stone serrated rails over the grave meeting in the middle above the grave, I stood looking at the grave for awhile and then the eyes on the head opened, I woke up in the physical screaming and terrified.
The second dream was the same graveyard with me having. a very strong urge to find this grave, although with some trepidation as the last dream terrified me, I thought is this a lucid dream, as I know I am back in the same graveyard looking for a grave, that I know there is something evil about it, telling myself to be strong I pressed on, I found the grave the eyes on the head opened, it opened it’s mouth and a real deep loud drone come out of it’s mouth, everything seemed to vibrate I woke up terrified and screaming, although I was now conscious in my bed at home, I questioned my dream was it a lucid nightmare, could I have changed the dream and dreamt of something much more pleasant.
In the third dream I was joined by a boy and a girl, they were about my age late teens, they told me they were going to help me find the grave, this is very strange I thought why would they want to be here with me in my dream, they asked me what I would do when we found the grave, I said to them I do not know the grave terrifys me, it moves and talks I really do not know why I keep coming back here, we found the grave but it was in a different place, and was very different to how it had appeared before, it was close to the church and it was like a brick box with a gravestone laid on top, and on top of that was the stone head, surrounding the grave was an old black railing pointed with pointed rails, the girl asked me do you know who is buried here, I said I do not know but there must be a reason for me to keep coming back here, at that point the stone head turned round to face me, and in a deep mans voice spoke my name, once again I woke up screaming and terrified.
The question for me was why I had the three dreams, what was the purpose and reason for me having three dreams about a grave in a graveyard, and who were the young boy and girl, a few months went by and one evening, I was sitting in Berenice Watts development circle, for the meditation she asked us to walk down a Victorian street, I visualized a Victorian street and in my visualisation it was night time, I tried to visualise the Victorian street scene in daylight, but it kept going back to night, so I just stayed with night there were theatres to my left all lit up, and Victorian ladies and gentlemen dressed in there finery, walking up and down the street, it was a fun happy feeling of people out for entertainment and fun, across the road there was a graveyard, I immediately knew it was the graveyard in my three dreams.
Surrounding the graveyard were black pointed railings, there was a large gold building, all lit up with lights shining on it, inset into the outer wall was red square with gold trim, the people walking down the street seemed to be celebrating the fact the gold building was there, on the pavement outside the gold building stood a Victorian gentleman, with top hat a black beard wearing formal evening dress, he was staring right at me, I felt this is strange why is he staring at me I also felt glued to the spot, but also that me and the Victorian gentleman were all to do with this gold building and feeling of celebration, Berenice called us back into the room to interpret our meditations, I described my meditation to Berenice and told her about my three dreams, and that I strongly felt the gold building was the grave in the 3 dreams, Berenice explained to me that I had been used by spirit to help raise a spirit from the grave, because there are spirits who come into the physical earth vibration, and do not learn and grow whilst attached to the physical body, and lead a very negative life in the physical, when the physical body dies they cannot see a way out and stay attached to the physical body, she felt the Victorian gentleman was the spirit who was helped into the higher light vibration, the atmosphere of celebration was the Victorian gentleman, being welcomed into the higher realms of spirit, the gold building was the symbol of the spirit being raised from the grave. the teenage boy and girl in my dream were spirit helpers, sent to help me raise this spirit, myself in spirit form has a strong living physical earth vibration, and this was of use to spirit to help raise the spirit from the grave.
Think of my story what you will, it was all very real for me and at times very frightening, at the time of the three dreams I had not been taught to close down, and was being used by spirit to do rescue work, as was done with the Victorian gentleman, spiritualism and especially Berenice Watts gave me answers to questions, and helped me to understand and control what was happening to me, the one thing I learned from this, apart from spiritual protection is what we do in life, our thoughts emotions and actions echo in eternity as above so below.
