How it all started
When I was a young lad a very strange thing occurred. I was awoken from a deep sleep at 4.00 am by my granddad - he was at the foot of my bed. I had no idea how he could be there because my family and I had recently been to visit him in hospital. He said to me calmly 'I have just come to say goodbye'. Naturally, Mum did not believe me and thought I was dreaming. Later that morning though, it all became very real to me, when the hospital phoned Mum to say that granddad had died at 3.55am!
That event seemed to be a catalyst for me, because after that I was able to hear the Spirit World but at that time I did not realise the significance of what was happening. At the age of sixteen I went to see our Doctor, who asked me what I was actually hearing - and after several visits he suggested that I go to the Spiritualist Church nearby but he said, do not tell anyone I told you that!
It took me some time to pluck up the courage but eventually I took his advice and found myself amongst people who could help and advise me. They suggested that I could use this wonderful gift to help people cope with their grief of losing a loved one, and now I thank them for giving me the guidance and reassurance that I needed then, because I can now appreciate what a rare gift it is.
At this point it may be useful for you to know that rather than just being clairvoyant, I am mainly clairaudient - in other words, I hear voices, which are sometimes in my head and sometimes as if a person is standing next to me whispering in my ear. These voices can be crystal clear or they can be rather muffled, but either way I know they are the voices of people who have passed on from this life to the next. The information that is given to me, which can sometimes seem rather trivial to an onlooker, is always so personal to the recipient of the message. Because of that, there is no doubt in my mind as to who these voices belong to- Therefore it does provide some very challenging evidence for life after death.
My gift is, to me, the most natural thing in the world and not at all spooky- From my experiences you cannot die for the life of you!
