QUOTES

“It was a very special moment for John's spirit was awakening and he was opening up, I had touched and resonated with his soul. It was more than just cyber sex, more than making love with someone you loved, it was blending souls as soul mates do and it was an incredible moment for the two of us. We both cried beautiful happy tears”
Astrid Brown, A Psychic Affair: A Romantic Novel
"I don't know what you have done, my mind is not my own
For you have magicked me for my feelings for you have grown
I did not set to fall in love, for you must have cast a spell
For you have bewitched me and all my doubts dispel
What spell have you cast to enchant me like this?
To make me fall in love and ache for your kiss”

“I heard your whispered fantasies so clear
Softly told in my ear
I opened my eyes you weren't there
So real my dream, I was so aware
But we'll meet again so certainly
In our whispered fantasy”
Astrid Brown, Whispered Fantasies

THIS IS NOT MY IMAGINATION

  THIS IS NOT MY IMAGINATION I heard your name in the breeze Carried and talked about by the trees And every footstep I walked The echoes me...

FROM MY FAN PAGE ON FACEBOOK




Will you lay with me my lover
In my garden of kisses
Take me by the hand and walk with me
Along this path of ectasy

Will you kiss me my lover
As deep and passionate as you do
A touch a sigh a knowing look
Let me lie with and gaze at you

Will you love me my lover
For in your arms I'll stay
Let us be entwined as the growing vine
Let me love you I pray

I cannot make you stay my lover
For I can only ask thee
But I hope and pray in loves garden you'll stay
But love enough to let you fly free

SECRET KISSES


Dark brown eyes dart over my body
Feeling them burn my skin with the passion of invisible kisses
And caress my flesh creating tingles and setting my soul on fire
Fingers softly sliding down my neck as your languid kisses melt me
Fingertips that know exactly where to go
Fingertips that follow that dark brown gaze
I mould to your touch you own my soul
That dark brown gaze mesmerises and bewitches me
words not needed those dark pools tell me what I must do
Your secret kisses fan the flames of my desire
That cannot be extinguished

MPB (c)




I AM ADDICTED

In the dark silver blue light
Illuminating your sleeping form
I watch you breathing
Listening to the soft noises you make
Longing to trace your body
With my hand
I drink in the beauty of the moment
I am intoxicated
Helpless and feelings out of control
I am addicted
And like an addict I crave you
I crave your touch
I crave your passion
I crave your soul
No rehab will help me
You are the drug I need
You consume me
I cannot be free
Nor would I want
You are my therapy

LAVENDER SATIN


Lavender Satin

Come dine in my field of lavender satin
And taste the sweetness of forbidden fruit
In this picnic of love's sweet kisses
A spread of pleasure beckons in afternoon sun
As you tip the velvet with sweet caress
My sweet wine flows with each kiss
Savour sweet honeyed taste of desires
Deep within you drink, your fill
And when satisfied and satiety lingers
We'll lie entwined, beating hearts stilled

A CHRISTMAS WE WILL NEVER FORGET from "DIARY OF A LOVE AFFAIR"





It should have been a lovely time, both John and I were both stressed because of our jobs, though glad of the break, he also had moved house and he was busy with this too. However, Boxing Day 2006 is one day that will remain with me forever. Annie and I had been chatting on cam for a while that evening and eventually John had joined us in a conference chat, we had been having fun and we all got on so well. Annie made John and I laugh so much. Suddenly without warning, John dropped out of the conversation. This was so unlike him, he always would say he had to go or say goodbye.

I suddenly felt something was so very wrong it was like a feeling of doom. It was the most horrible feeling and I felt very uneasy. I told Annie something was up and she sensed it too. He had not logged out of messenger but he was not replying.

ME
“Something is just not right here Annie. I just have this awful feeling of doom. I can’t describe it”

annie_19
“I know, something is not right. Let’s go view?”

ME
“Ok! On the count of three! One, two, three!”

When we wanted to remote view we always counted down together, we always arrived together. To this day I don’t know how all this worked, it just did.

ME
“I can’t see John anywhere Annie. It’s almost as if he has just up and ran, he’s left everything switched on.”

annie_19
“Yes it’s like the Marie Celeste, he’s left the lamp on everything, his laptop is open at messenger and I can see our chats. I wonder where he is”

ME
“I just don’t like this at all”

We came back from our viewing trip and suddenly something strange happened. We had both been concentrating and asking spirit what had happened, perhaps we hadn’t realised how much we had been concentrating and how much effort and energy we had been putting into these thoughts.

Suddenly a message window opened up from John’s IM stating on letter on my Mac. It said “A”

ME
“Annie, Annie an “A” has appeared from John, maybe he’s ill and trying to tell us something!”

annie_19
“We’ve just been there but lets go remote view again and see if he’s there”

On the count of three we were there, we looked around, the house was deserted.

ME
“Something is not right about this I am very worried about this, I feel someone has died”

annie_19
“Don’t say that Maryann, just don’t say it”

A letter “C” appeared in the message window in upper case as before and then another letter “C”

annie_19
“OMG I don’t like this Maryann it’s like a ouija board!”

ME
“Shshsh! Annie let’s go with this! Lets just concentrate and ask what has happened!”

The letter “I” appeared then the letter “D”. Eventually the letters came one at a time until they spelt “ACCIDENT”. Annie by this time was getting frightened, I reassured her I could see she was frightened on cam.

ME
“Please Annie I don’t feel this is an evil spirit, we asked what has happened, why John has just suddenly disappeared, we asked Spirit and you know how powerful they are. Have we not proved this time and time again. Like the first time in class, when you goaded me for evidence and I gave it to you with both barrels blazing. I gave you dates, names, evidence only you could possibly know. We have been doing the impossible we took remote viewing to a new level, we did that with Spirit and now they are helping us now. Let’s ask who has had the accident”.

THIS JOURNEY OF SOULS FROM 'DIARY OF A LOVE AFFAIR CHAPTER 16


I felt so alone and let down, 2007 had been a tough year. I turned inwards looking for answers, I hadn’t done anything wrong all I had done was love a man who had suddenly breezed into my life, who had shown me how to love again. Not only that he had taught me to love so deeply as to be unconditional. Had I not met him then I guess I would not have developed my writing. He inspired and brought out of me, words in my heart I never knew I had. I loved that man so deep so spiritually in a way I never knew it was possible.





CLOSURE
You never did give me that finality
That proper end to love's fragility
You left me hanging in some kind of time warped limbo
Unable to go back, to stay the same or just go
I wanted answers, you refused to give
Or talk when all I'd done, was give
You owed me that, at the very least
All I'd done, everything for you, to please
I'm still here in this position
Like the proverbial 'Hanging man' in Tarot's supposition
what did I do to you so very bad?
You never really answered, but left me in a state of sad
To punish me for all lives ills and loves in justices past
It's not my fault your relationship of past didn't last
Why tar me with that same brush and category
I know you hurt of old and for that I'm sorry
But that is down to YOUR experiences
And nothing to do with this love's consequences
In your heart of old you know its true
I am me, not your past love who really hurt you
You never did give me closure when all I'd done was love you
MPB (c)
We have to go through adversity to learn. We have to experience and learn from making mistakes, so that we will learn from them. Sometimes we have to step back and let those we love the most mess up, such is life, but we have to do this even though it may be painful to stand on the sidelines and watch.
When you care and love someone unconditionally, you have no preconditions, no judgments. You are simply there to pick up the pieces if needed. That’s what true friends and lovers do, similarly a good counsellor does not offer opinions or suggestions but makes the recipient aware of their choices nothing more, You have to just stand back and let them learn for themselves and if they make mistakes, let them, its the only way they will learn. As much as we love our friends dearly, you have to love them enough to let them go. If they love you, they will come back because they want to be there, but if you step in and try to foist opinions and your beliefs, you will create alienation, you have to let souls grow, let them mature, develop at their own rate, and not try to hurry what is their life s journey and not ours
I hope one day in another life time, in another place we will meet again in fact I know we will and I wonder what the challenges will be that time around. Although I am sad he left me a gift, he touched my soul, with soul love and for that I can never hate him, but will always love him Unconditionally.
THIS JOURNEY OF SOULS
I know you are there
You are in my heart
Entwined in my soul
Though now apart
But joined at the hip
Part of the whole
Deep in my heart
Deep in my soul
I feel your eyes
They burn right through
The mists of time
For I'm part of you
We are one part of the same
You are me and I am you
We burn from one single twin flame
So in the dead of the night
As I lie awake
I'll be in your thoughts and in your sight
I gave to you my soul completely
So wherever you go
I will follow meekly
I cant escape no matter how
Destiny is calling
And calling now
There is no sense of space nor time
Clocks don't exist in the hallowed halls
This journey of souls yours and mine
Is destined for ever till the last strands of time

FROM CHAPTER 15 'DIARY OF A LOVE AFFAIR'

Harpies, in classical Greek mythology and in Virgil's Aeneid, were flying monsters who tormented people and snatched food and other objects. Their name translates as "snatchers."

The Harpies, often but not always represented as a triad, were sisters connected with the winds. There were three or four Harpies, depending on the myth.

In some myths, their parents were Gaia and the Old Man of the Sea. In others, their parents were children of the Sea, siblings, and thus the Harpies were born of incest. They were so hideous that their parents hid them away. They were released when the gods needed them to torment and punish.

Today the term is often used metaphorically to refer to a nasty or annoying woman.

Green Witch was one such woman as were her friends and as in mythology, yes, there were three or four of them and they lived up to their name. I hate to be so catty but yes, she did hide her real face and all of this would have been so funny had the effect not been so real. Green Witch was boss Harpy in all of this all she had to do was say “Jump” to the others and they would chorus, “How high?”

At first I tried not to be paranoid, perhaps Annie was right and I even began to doubt my own intuitive ability. I was not imagining it, I know I wasn’t. The multiple comments, pushing me off John’s front page, she never did that to anyone else except me. Watching his page and as soon as he posted anything new, she had to be in there first, She had to have been watching his page especially as she deliberately waited for me to comment and then she would multiple comment. If I didn’t comment, she wouldn’t be in any hurry to or if one of his other friends did, she would only leave one comment, but with me, it was always five in a row to make sure I was pushed off. I mentioned this to John and he told me he would have a word with her, whether he did or not I don’t know. Perhaps he did and perhaps that was the reason why she seemed to step up her multiple comments.

She appeared to encourage her fellow Harpies to invite John to their pages, so that they had this little clique going and they would have conversations going on, on John’s page. At this time my blog was open to friends of friends so it was possible for her to read what I was posting and something else I noted at this time was whenever I posted a poem she would too. Being a proliferic blogger it must have driven her crazy when I think about it, but that was just me I loved writing poems for John.

Reviews

Great read, it's not the usual romantic novel it's a bit of a cross genre being informative and paranormal but it had me hooked, I would love it if the author wrote a sequel as I would love to know how the characters relationship goes I do hope the author does Sarah65 __________________________ Amazing read and was engrossed until I finished reading, this book is more than a novel it helps understand the psychic's world and has such depth of feelings Stella Matthews An interesting read different but I really enjoyed this book I liked the factual glossary at the end, it helped make sense of the paranormal happenings throughout S Williams
