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

HAVE YOU EVER WONDERED WHAT A READING WITH A MEDIUM IS LIKE?

I really feel I should cover this in my next book. I certainly touched on it in "Diary of a Love Affair", but I feel many people feel its creepy or scary or touches on the dark side of the occult. Well to enlighten the ignorant, its about love and light and I can guarantee anyone who has visited a Spiritualist medium for a reading will come away the better for having done so.

Spiritualism, is very similiar in lots of ways to Christianity, we believe in God and we believe in the Higherarchy of Angels and indeed this alone is one of the seven Principals we follow and the foundation of our religion. Many of us have a favourite, mine is number six: "Retribution and compensation for all souls", which basically means, what you give out in life you will get back tenfold. We also believe as well as God, we believe in Spirit, for not only can we pray or ask God for advice, we can ask advice from Spirit Guides. These are souls, who are highly developed and lived many life times, who have evolved and become truer in spirit. They aim is to guide us, help us, follow our spiritual path, and show us how to become better people. Like Christianity we believe we live on after physical death, but we go on to seek proof of survival, evidence to prove to someone who has come for a reading, that their loved ones are still alive and well albeit not in the physical sense.

Medium's use a variety of means to connect with Spirit, and all of use have had this ability since birth. You cannot learn to become a Medium, it is a gift, it can be developed and tuned, but it is God given. Please do not confuse us with Psychics, for this is where we differ. All Mediums possess a psychic ability, but not all psychics are Mediums, we work on different planes. The Psychic works by connecting to the Auric field i.e. the electromagnetic energy field that surrounds all living things. This can give the psychic details of out past and present, future, well that is never written in stone, for we all have free will. The Medium will often begin a reading tapping into this to begin with as this often gives an indication of the nature as to why they were consulted and some will use a Mantic tool, such as Crystals, Tarot etc.

At some point and generally its near the begining of a reading with me, I will connect with Spirit. Now no Medium can summon a Spirit to order, it doesn't work that way, but generally when someone comes for a reading it's because they have something troubling them and their own Spirit guides (yes we all have them) will know what the problem is and may well bring someone who has passed away recently (if they have suffered a bereavement) or a relative, be it a father, mother etc. who wishes to pass on comfort or advice or simply pass on just love.

A reading is no way creepy or frightening what so ever, sometimes I see spirit in the physical sense but as I have developed my skills as a Medium, more often than not I see spirit in my minds eye, this is termed 'Mental Mediumship'. I have never known anyone to come away frightened but every person who has visited a genuine Medium, will seek to find evidence and tell the person who they are doing the reading for, some sort of proof, only they would know. This is very comforting to them to know their loved ones live on and are watching over them. All will go away uplifted. We don't sit in the dark, with candles lit, not do we wear big gold hooped earrings and colourful scarfs on our heads. We just look normal and we are, but we have this ability to be sensitive albeit like radio picks up sound waves, to pick up communication from beyond the grave.

Depression's Evolutionary Roots

Depression seems to pose an evolutionary paradox. Research in the US and other countries estimates that between 30 to 50 percent of people have met current psychiatric diagnostic criteria for major depressive disorder sometime in their lives. But the brain plays crucial roles in promoting survival and reproduction, so the pressures of evolution should have left our brains resistant to such high rates of malfunction. Mental disorders should generally be rare -- why isn’t depression?

Head Lines: Practice Removes Prejudice--And More

Practice Removes Prejudice Like it or not, most people hold subconscious stereotypes about individuals of races other than their own. New research found a link between such implicit (unconscious) bias and the “other-race effect”--the fact that we can distinguish faces of our own race better than other-race faces. In the study, Caucasians’ implicit bias toward African-Americans diminished after they learned to individuate faces of that race.

A Wiring Diagram in the Brain for Depression

Depression’s Wiring Diagram When Helen Mayberg started curing depression by stimulating a previously unknown neural junction box in a brain area called Brod­mann’s area 25--discovered through 20 years of dogged research--people asked her where she was going to look next. Her reaction was, “What do you mean, Where am I going to look next? I’m going to look more closely here!”

Readers Respond on Talking about Terrorism--And More...

No War On Terror “ Talking about Terrorism ,” by Arie W. Kruglanski, Martha Crenshaw, Jerrold M. Post and Jeff Victoroff, makes an important point. Whether we are anti­terrorism, antiwar or anticancer, when we wage a war against the enemy we empower that enemy. Mother Teresa is reported to have said about her refusal to take part in antiwar rallies, “If you ever have a pro-peace rally, I’ll be there.”

Some Reviews

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
