The aim of this week’s newsletter is to remind you to use your sense-abilities


 Psychic, Intuitive, Medium: What’s the Difference?

PsychicAs we browse the Internet, metaphysical bookstores and listings for spiritual advisers, we get confronted with many terms explaining spiritual advisory work. Many people lump them all into the same category and some people who use the terms for themselves aren’t really sure what they mean. In connecting to a guide it’s important to know what type of work they will be performing for you, what their style is and where they get their information.

Psychic, Intuitive, Empath, Channel, Medium… what do they all mean? And how are they different from one another? Let’s explore! Click here to find out more.

Very interesting predictions…

Mindfulness Bell – A 5 Minute Mindfulness Meditation 

Mindfulness MeditationThis 5 minute mindfulness bell meditation is wonderful for whenever you want to clear your mind, relax and then get on with your day.
This calming sound is a wonderful focal point for meditation. Simply absorb your attention in the sound of the mindfulness bell. No mantra is required, no special breathing techniques are needed, just let your awareness be consumed by the sound of the bell.
Your mind will become clearer and more calm with each and every bell strike, and as the bells fade into silence, your mind is given the opportunity to experience a very natural state of stillness.
A high bell sound rings out at the conclusion of the meditation.
Please come back often and enjoy this 5 minute meditation anytime you want to clear your mind and relax!

My car  called “Miracle”
by Christina Christou

MagicThis is proof that magic does exist! 
Six years ago I helped someone out who was in the stock exchange, he had it all and lost it all and ended up in a dark place. He had no one and no money, so of cause I didn’t charge him for treatments. He kept saying that when he made his money again, he would get me a new car. Obviously I did not take his promise seriously.

Six years later I get a call from him saying “it’s karma time“.  He made his money, bought himself a new Mercedes and gave me his Holden Astra to say thank you for being there when no one else was.  Who does that?  I feel so, so blessed.
I named her “Miracle” as she came to me at the most perfect time. 
It’s magic!!! Happy days!

Workshop TWO: Mediumship Development with Gabriel Marks.

When most people think of the dead they think of haunted houses or cemeteries.
But in reality Patrick Swayze summed it up quite well in the movie Ghost. Discarnate people are very much alive and well, albeit living in a non-physical dimension. And there is an amazing eagerness that emanates from them whereby they wish to continue to interact with family and friends ‘left behind’. And fortunately with us humans there is a growing desire to learn how to connect and communicate with our passed over loved ones.
There is nothing more thrilling as a Medium than making a connection to the other side and having your evidence and information validated by your client. So, in this practical workshop Gabriel will be presenting exercises for you to tap into your Psychic and Mediumistic abilities. It will be thought provoking and interactive, as we further delve into your sixth sense.
Please bring a pen and paper or notebook for this practical workshop.

“There is nothing more thrilling as a Medium than making a connection to the other side.”

Gabriel has been studying and developing as a Psychic Medium for almost a decade. Learning about the mechanics of Psychic Mediumship, spiritual development and the afterlife has been a passion that continues to take him to new levels of spiritual awareness with each passing day.

Michelle LingAkashic Records are a dimension of consciousness that contains a vibrational record of every soul and its journey. Every thought, word, emotion, action generated by soul experience is recorded since its origin and translates into past, present and future possibilities.

  • Accessing these records helps us solve the mystery around patterns, issues, situations, relationships that we face in day to day life.

For centuries, the Akashic Records were the exclusive domain of mystics, saints, and scholars—and rightly so. Infinite power and wisdom are available in the Records, and they have been entrusted to those who are well prepared for the responsibility of deep knowing.
Times have changed, however. Humanity has reached from the age of dependence to spiritual independence and responsibility and we now can directly access our Akashic records. It only takes us a conscious commitment to seeking and spreading Divine Light and it helps us solve the mystery around patterns, issues, situations, relationships that we face in day to day life.

About Michelle Ling: Michelle is a Certified Akashic Record Practitioner, a Graduate Diploma in Psychotherapy and Counselling, Facilitation Programmes by The Radiant Group on Addictions and Co-dependant Relationships, Waldolf Steiner Early Childhood Journey Course and ‘Brain Gym’ Instructor on Educational Kinesiology (an effective way to treat children with Learning Difficulties, etc.) as well as Reiki Training. Also Michelle has been passionate in working on the ‘Unconscious’ based on Dr. Carl Jung’s theory with Dream Analysis since 1995, and is fortunate to further her innerwork on shadow projection, and the Unconscious with Dr. W. Brugh Joy.

Courses she currently teaches in HK :

  • Conscious Parenting
  • Sexuality and Intimacy
  • Emotional Clearing and Repatterning with essential oils

Michelle also offers personal readings on Akashic Records in Sydney and internationally.

Psychic Development with Gabriel Marks.  Week 1

Rosemary started with a meditation that created a platform for Gabriel’s work. I liked she mentioned the mild ringing in the ears, that I call “the chirpies”, a sign for me that I am “in the zone”.
Gabriel started with some paradigms for how we experience our reality.:  A point moving really fast will appear to be a solid line or even a whole image to us. I remember this is how the old TV screens worked.  Everything is vibrating energy, and everyone is born psychic, with the ability to pick up these energies, but we often loose or forget it when we focus on logic or the opinions of others.
The energy of material objects is reflected in their aura, even inanimate objects. The energy of Our experiences and emotions interacts with inanimate objects, so they retain a “memory” of them. Reading this memory is called Psychometry.
Once we had all the theory it was time to put into practice, with reading another persons object, eg carkeys and then their aura. This was fun for all, and for those that hadn’t done it before, the results were sometimes surprising. Even for those that didn’t seem to receive much, it was an opening to an ability that will improve with practice.
We look forward to exploring mediumship with Gabriel next week.|
He is also running a 6 week course with the opportunity to explore in more depth.
 Contact details : See above event on May 15th.

A Note from Rosemary

It was the first time we had tried to do a ‘workshop’ as such on a Monday Night.  What an interesting and fun night! After a short introduction about himself and his assistant Michelle Ling,  Gabriel broke us up into pairs making sure we didn’t know the other person and we practised Psychometry, for some of us it was the very first time.  Psychometry is a psychic ability in which a person can sense or “read” the history of an object by touching it. Such a person can receive impressions from an object by holding it in his/her hands or, perhaps, touching it to the forehead. 
Lastly we each read our answers to the other and it was very surprising just how many of the answers were accurate.   It was a lot of fun and as someone remarked, it was a very enjoyable way of getting to know each other.
Congratulatons Gabriel, it was a great workshop. Don’t miss workshop 2 – Mediumships Development.
