After 15 days in my ‘micro — climate’ spare room, my first ‘grown from seed’ carolina reaper chilli plant peeped above the soil! The spicey heat of this chilli is at the top of the list and the seed takes up to a month to germinate. In comparison, the mild jalapeno chilli plants take on average 5 days to germinate and reach the light, under the same conditions.

Thinking about the fact that the ‘hottest’ chilli takes so much longer to germinate, left me reflecting on the journey of our personal spiritual development. …

(abridged from the forthcoming book The Intelligence of The Spirit — to be released 2021)

For mental mediumship, the unidentified evidence is both the bane and the blessing of the medium. On the one hand, you have the intelligence of the spirit confirming the sanctity and intelligence of their communication, versus the frustration of not being understood at the very moment of what you hoped would be a positive validation.

In public mediumship, that moment can appear critical. Standing on a platform with a denial of what you, as the medium is relaying, is confidence busting for all. You feel…


Understanding natural animal communication

natural animal communication

We base our natural animal communication upon the energy of emotion and thought. In one sense, it’s as simple to understand as someone asking you if you are enjoying the food they cooked for you and you aren’t. They can usually tell. Out of politeness, you say what you think are the right things; you try to make an intelligent comment, such as how you can detect a certain herb and even ask how they made it. Yet your host knows. You just don’t like it. Could it be that your body language is a clue? Is it your lack…


For many spiritual seekers, physical mediumship is the ‘Holy Grail’ of evidence. Not only is it witnessed by all present, it is experienced through the human senses. For some, this makes it tangible and more relatable.

To sit in a room with people who all experience the same phenomena, is a powerful endorsement of an ‘other worldly’ experience. It is always the intelligence that matters and has true significance for us. An object levitating, or the hearing of a discarnate voice, is something a skilled mentalist can achieve and yet still does not claim it as an afterlife experience.

It is the self discovery in Trance, that moves us forward and creates positive progress

I’ve been working on some new trance lessons and had to ‘sit’ with something for a while whilst I worked it out. It came to me that the purpose of trance mediumship resides firstly, in the individual and not specifically for the enlightenment of others. How often I have met students of trance who want to demonstrate it, as their primary reason for development. What I’m saying here, is that the focus on teaching trance has been about what we do for others. The emphasis…


Everything communes in some way, or reacts to its environment — but can humans communicate with insects?

I’m often asked about bugs and whether we can communicate with them? You can certainly

intuitively perceive their energy which is one method of discovery, but not an actual communication.

Most bugs communicate in very different ways. For example, beetles can use clicks, but they also have an electromagnetic energy field that will change just like we do.

We all have an electro-magnetic aura that changes depending on our state of health, emotion and our physical environment.

Regarding bugs; let’s consider beetles for…


Over the years I conducted many spiritual assessments and each one was unique and a pleasure to be a part of. Learning about them was the hardest part

Over the years I conducted many spiritual assessments and each one was unique and a pleasure to be a part of. Learning about them was the hardest part. There was no set formula and it appeared as if with some basic principles, you just had to knuckle down and hope it all worked out well for your sitter.

As part of my research and gathering of material for my new course, I set about experiencing my personal connection with nature at different times

As part of my research and gathering of material for my new course, I set about experiencing my personal connection with nature at different times of the day. It was my intention to record the sounds emerging from nature as the sun rises and to experience within the scope of what surrounded me.

To do this, I needed to be up before dawn and immerse myself in mindfulness, as nature awakened with the sunrise. This…

We awoke to our first significant frost this year and it was beautiful. It didn’t last long as the sun is strong today, but it was a truly magnificent icy topping. It was so magical and a glorious reminder, that life is constantly changing.

Jackie and I talked about lighting the stove, making a hearty soup from home-grown produce and the garden projects that will now be different.

The leaves are already changing and harvesting is coming to a close at Eagle Lodge as we pick, store, freeze and recycle back into nature. It really is a season finale celebration! We look forward to the warm summer days and the evenings of sunshine next summer, yet the time to retreat, renew and enjoy the warmth of the fire is just as significant and equally wondrous. The business of growth and harvest, is giving way…
