God within me God without, how shall I ever be in Doubt. I am the sower and the sown, God’s self unfolding own.
As a Christian Spiritualist, Jesus is the one true example of all I know to be the truth. He was a soul living an earthly life through a physical body, and a material world. He was fully aware of his soul connection to the source, that we have named God. He was also a medium and healer, and when he died his spirit left his body and went into spirit, so what makes Jesus so different to me, or any of us, I believe it is now the time to really change our perception of ourselves. As I have long realised he was the personification of us all, his message was very simple I am you. And we can all develop the same love, compassion, kindness, as Jesus by knowing he came to show the human race who we truly are.
We are souls living and learning through a human experience, this is what I believe he was teaching us, when he said, “I am the way the truth and the life. No one comes to the father except through me” Jesus is an ascended master do we really think that he wanted to be worshipped, with worship it focusses all the goodness and divinity onto him, and makes us blind to our own goodness and divinity, and to his teachings, distracting us from developing his teachings from within, making us the hopeless sinners we are led to believe we are by organised religion. I feel strongly to say he wanted us to listen to him, and learn from him, about the truth of our existence here on mother earth, and to our soul connection to what we have named God, and for his teachings to be passed down through the ages. By doing this the consciousness and vibration of the human race, would have been raised to a much higher level, collectively and individually, this I believe was the purpose of Jesus being here on earth, he was actually trying to save us from ourselves, but through religion we have totally missed the point of the teaching and lessons. Religion is great for souls to come together, to share support and grow together, but sadly it has been corrupted by mans need for power and control.
Jesus had his troubles and temptations here in his short earthy life as we do, yet throughout his life he taught and guided us, how to deal with our problems, this is Jesus man and teacher, he dealt with his problems with love and intuition, at times he did not have the answers so he prayed, he asked for guidance and direction, as we do when we are lost, he was tempted by the devil out in the desert, for strength to resist temptation he prayed, and in doing so he was attuning himself, to the source of his being that we have named God, and in doing so attuning himself to his higher self, in his life story the source was identified as his father, I know the source to be the father and mother of us all depending on your perspective of the source. I really feel strongly to say it is wrong to believe, that Jesus was the son of God, in fact he was our brother, teaching us of our connection to the source throughout his life, to believe Jesus was the son of God, makes him some kind of supernatural being, within our human biological mindset.
When in truth Jesus was exactly the same as us, mind, body, spirit, soul, living an earthly existence to experience, learn, give, and grow. To look on Jesus as a supernatural being, is now very old hat and wrong we have to remember that Jesus, was communicating to people 2000 years ago , so the source through him was communicating to the level of understanding at the time, we now live in a time of science and technology, its about time our understanding of life and spirituality, moved along with the times, but man made religion likes to keep us in our place, so we remain its servants via a man made supernatural being, and making us feel incapable of attaining, what Jesus taught us what is naturally within us.
When Jesus spoke of his fathers house I strongly believe, he was talking of what we believe is heaven, or as I believe the spirit world, the many mansions he spoke of, to me are the many many levels of spirit within the spirit world, nobody knows how many levels there are, as there are many lives and existences we know nothing about, it is a massive universe we live in. Jesus said he would prepare a place for us, I really do not believe Jesus meant as religion tells us, that we have to believe in him or the man made religion that adopted him, to gain a place with him in heaven or the spirit world, the place he would be preparing for us would be defined by, the life we led here on earth by our thoughts and actions, as to the kind of room that would be prepared for us. My house has many mansions means to me, that there is room for all, our thoughts and actions here on earth dictate, whether we land up living eternally in a palace, or a slum, a nice maisonette, a council estate, or suburbia. Our level of spirit is dictated by our soul progression, again by our thoughts and actions here on earth, we can as souls go up and down the levels of spirit, depending on our thoughts and actions, the choice is ours Jesus was guiding us to choose love, kindness, and compassion, over hatred, anger, selfishness , ignorance. We all have the universal gift of freewill, so we should make our choices wisely, freewill is the engine of spirit and soul development, let us make the template for our lives the teachings of Jesus, and all the other ascended masters, because they all brought the same message to us, the truth has one source but many different teachers, depending on our level of understanding.
Jesus life was teaching us the universal way of life, but in doing so he upset the religion of the time, because he was teaching us that we are responsible for our lives, and how we live it and not as a servant to man made religion, and in doing so taking away the power that religion had over the people. He upset the local government which were the romans at that time, by the amount of people that were following Jesus teachings, they feared civil unrest with the possibility of being overthrown.
At this time we see Jesus the man, living life by his freewill and choices, because his teachings were love, I honestly do not believe he realised how much upset, he was causing, he was upsetting religion and government, the two most powerful factions of the time and still are to this day. On his crucifixion Jesus said “father forgive them for they know not what they do” but they knew exactly what they were doing, they were getting rid of a trouble maker, because of the collective ego, they did not want to lose there power, they chose that over change and progression, to a better way of life, yes they were driven by greed. I do not believe Jesus wanted to die that day, as he prayed and asked his father for help to live, religion tells us that Jesus died to save us from sin, again making him supernatural but it was the sin of greed that killed him. We have to take the teachings of universal and unconditional love within, make them our living and speaking truth through the heart, then Jesus death would not have been in vain, whether you believe Jesus existed or not, its a great story that can heal guide and uplift us.
I released my ebook today titled Reflections, it is my whole collection of poetry, with transcribed spirit trance teachings. It is available on Amazon cost £3.00 GBP.
Way back in 1978 I put my best foot forward on my spiritual journey, starting spiritual life as a powerhouse in the healing sanctuary, at Manor Park Christian Spiritualist Church (now Slough Spiritualist Church), today I find I have come full circle and rediscovered my calling as a trance healer, with the event of Covid19 spiritualist services and demonstrations have gone online, it seemed to me that everyone was churning out messages for the masses. I said to myself we need to be doing something different to everyone else, as it is all evidential mediumship and no teaching of eternal and universal life, my spirit guides said to me that we should do online trance, so they could come forward and give their teachings, and invite people to ask questions so they could help people to learn and uplift their level of understanding.
My spirit guides and I started doing Facebook live trance in 2020, over a period of time my spirit guides were telling people, that they were sending healing from the cabinet to the people watching the Facebook live. And telling the people what to expect from the healing energies they were creating, such as heat or cold within or around the body or tingling in the body, I must say that the results of this were amazing. The healing was felt around the world, people were messaging me telling me they felt upliftment from the healing generated from the cabinet, and they had felt the sensations of heat and tingling, in the effected area of their bodies, I now know that healing can be transmitted through the electronic digital medium of the internet.
In September 2020 I started to fundraise for the lovely Stacey Cooper, a young lady who is awaiting a bowel and pancreas transplant, Stacey also suffers with diabetes 1 and is insulin resistant, Stacey is very ill and has frequent long stays in hospital. The money is being raised because the hospital where Stacey will have her transplants, is 2 hours from Stacey’s home and due to Covid19 Stacey’s partner and family cannot stay with her, whilst she is in ICU for a minimum of 4 weeks after her life saving transplants. the funds are being raised for Stacey’s partner and family for fuel, accommodation, and food, any funds left over Stacey will donate to her pancreas transplant program, to help others like her. I feel Stacey having her loved ones around her when she is recovering from her transplants, will be a great healer for Stacey.
I did the usual private readings to raise funds for Stacey, but I found it exhausting with my workload and spiritual commitments, and Stacey’s fundraiser began to flounder as no new donations were coming in. and I was feeling that I had let Stacey down, but my workload was very tiring. Red Cloud on of my spirit guides came to me, and reminded me that I am actually a healer, and suggested I do online healing, and I could arrange appointments for when I am rested and recharged. I do not believe I should take money for spiritual healing, as it is high vibrational powered by universal love, and I feel strongly that I cannot take money off people who are sick and in pain, I thought hang on a minute reiki healers charge a fee for their psychic services, as they are in business in the modern spiritual industry, why should I not ask for a donation to Stacey’s fundraiser, so I went ahead and I started doing trance healing clinics via zoom, and the recipients of trance healing donated to Stacey’s fundraiser.
From the trance healing clinics people who felt the benefits of trance healing, came back to me for more, and I channel healing to them via my spirit guides in a trance state on a regular basis, which keeps the donations flowing into Stacey’s fundraiser, also I am rested and able to channel the healing effectively. One of the ladies I channel healing for the lovely Bernadette Pryal booking secretary for Bognor Spiritualist Centre, told me she has benefitted from trance healing and can now walk without pain in her legs and knees, Bernadette was virtually housebound with the pain in her legs and knees. After a trance healing session with Bernadette, she said she could see me demonstrating trance healing at Bognor Spiritualist Centre, and people would be able to see my face transfiguring in the red light, Bernadette told me they were organising a special private event at Bognor, to thank the mediums and healers who had helped to keep the centre doors open, Bernadette invited me to demonstrate trance healing at Bognor, as a thankyou to the mediums and healers who had helped the centre. I was amazed and humbled to be invited to demonstrate trance healing, I was also nervous as I had never demonstrated trance healing to a group of people, the date was set for February 12th
I arrived at Bognor Spiritualist Centre, early to prepare the designated room for trance healing, and to draw source energy into the room, to create the right energies for spirit healing guides to work. With trance we also use music to help raise the energies, to me Enya’s greatest hits is great for raising the energies for trance, 19 people arrived for the demonstration of trance healing, we had them sat in a sort of elongated circle, I introduced myself and thanked everyone and the healing guides, for allowing me to demonstrate trance healing. I asked the sitters to relax as much as they could, as my healing guides will come amongst them and give them healing, also 5 people were selected to receive healing channeled through me, but maybe more would be asked to receive healing through me, it depended on how long the healing guides wished to work for. Bernadette was my helper looking after me whilst I was in trance, and bringing people to the chair for healing, In all 9 people received healing channeled through me, 3 other people felt healing guides giving them healing, one lady said she fell into a sleep state and she could feel healing guides working on her neck. others reported that the healing energies flowed seamlessly around the room, creating peace and calm within the room. I feel very honoured and humbled to be used as a channel for healing at Bognor, I asked Bognor to donate my expenses to Stacey’s fundraiser, also money was raised in freewill donations in total £120 was raised and donated to Stacey’s fundraiser, I am personally over the moon with the results the trance healing and grateful for the sitters kindness and generosity for donating to Stacey’s fundraiser. My healing guides and I have been invited back to Bognor Spiritualist Centre, to demonstrate trance healing again March 12th.
I now feel I have come full circle and I have been guided back to serving spirit as a healer, I feel I must take small steps on this new journey, as I do not wish to run before I can walk, and mess up what spirit want to achieve through me, how I feel right now is off the scale being used by spirit, to ease or cure illness or to take away pain. To bring greater wellbeing to people to me is beyond amazing, and is something I hope to progress with again, I have titled this blog Vir Colorum which is Latin for man of colour, as I have been working with spirit colours throughout my 39 years of service to spirit, thankyou for reading.

Many years ago my spirit guides said to me “we want you to do platform work” I told my spirit guides I was not ready to do platform work, so they kept on nagging me to demonstrate mediumship on platform, it became very intense in the end I threw my hands up in the air, and told them OK I WILL GIVE PLATFORM WORK A TRY IF I FALL FLAT ON MY FACE IT’S YOUR FAULT.
So on the 5th January 1983, I gave my first demonstration of mediumship at Slough Spiritualist Church, I was 23 years old many people said I was too young to be a medium, as I did not have life knowledge, but I was communicating spirit not myself, I was a typical 23 year old man with many life lessons to learn.
I can honestly say the past 39 years have been a journey of self discovery, of who I am and my purpose in life. Spiritualism gave me the answers as to the why and wherefores of what I could see and feel, taught me to have control over my awareness, and not be a forever running tap for spirit, I have made some very bad choices in life, and walked down some very dark roads, the one constant that has been in my life is spirit, gently guiding me back to purpose and service.
Looking back I realise throughout my life, I have been learning the 7 principles of spiritualism through my life lessons, especially principles 1, 5, 6, 7. in that way yes I was too young to be a medium, but I am so thankful for the lessons and the journey that has brought me to the understanding and awareness I have now. I have met many amazing people along the way, and I have been humbled by the love and faith that spirit have had in me over the years, and the power of love spirit has to communicate their truths, love, and upliftment to many through we channels for spirit.
Today 5th January 2022 I do not look back, I look forward to future service as a channel for spirit, knowing it is my purpose and my reason for being. Blessings To All 💜
