  1. So, as the saying goes, there's a book in us all. My book has been a work in process for what feels like a lifetime, but in real terms, is probably only a couple of years. I start to write, move away from it, go back, edit, rewrite...and so the cycle continues. 

    My sister is a published author, with real books with a proper grown up publisher and agent, not a self published or "vanity" product, or ebook written for Amazon, (her kids books are fantastic, I will name-check them at the end of this blog) She, and by transference, her books, are funny, perceptive, and beautifully observed, which kinda puts me immediately on the back foot when it comes to my own paltry offering.

    You see, my book wants to tell my story of my spiritual work - from my earliest memory of seeing spirit people in my grandma's house, aged about 4 years old,  to meeting my first "real" medium shortly after the same adored grandma died, incontrovertible proof that there was life after life, but sadly the medium was unable to resist the urge to put her spin on it, by telling me that I was "holding grandma back by my grief" - now of course recognised as a no-no, but at the time making me feel really bad.

    Through my teenage years I was seen at school as being a bit "strange" which I welcomed - if they thought I was odd, they were leaving me alone, and if all that took was a weekly session with some black nail varnish, it was worth it. Spiritually, I was wandering - looking to find my home. Coming from a family where my Dad told me that the Bible was simply a book written to explain perfectly natural phenomena and so to keep the proletariat down (the apple never falls far from the tree, huh ?) I had no real mast to nail my spiritual colours to.

    flirted with the Jesus Christs Church of Latter Day Saints aka the Mormons, and joined my then hero, Donny Osmond, in rejecting tea, coffee, coke, and sex before marriage. I'm prettty sure there was something in there about milk too, but as even the sight of the stuff makes me feel queasy, it wasn't as impactive.

    I lasted as a Mormon for about a month, going to church with a girl from school, whom I tried to avoid as much as possible AT school, as she was rather odd, and, if my memory serves me right, had six fingers. 

    The Scientologists nearly got me, offering me a personality profiling at the Oxford Street school. We all like to know what people think of us, so I did the test, but got out sharpish when they started talking about donating a percentage of my salary. In my first job, my money was already allocated to such essentials as music, and yet more black nail polish.

    For some years, I was spiritually free, although the dead still followed me around, chatting to me on trains, and sitting on my bed when my sister was asleep. I just assumed it was normal, it was something I'd always known, and therefore quite unremarkable. I remember my mum asking me why I had never told her about the people in grandma's house, and me telling her that I just assumed that she knew they were there, so it wasn't a talking point. I think I did at one point wonder why they were never offered a drink, but being so young, rationality was not a strong point.

    And so it was that I happened upon Hounslow Spiritualist Church, a traditional SNU church with its own beautiful purpose built home. Sitting at the back week in and week out, I was fascinated by the "dead" who populated the pews alongside their loved ones, and came back time and time again to hear the mediums work, passing on messages of love and sometimes apology, and watching the reaction of the dead to the messages, some smiling and nodding, others becoming quite frustrated and annoyed when their messages weren't passed over correctly, and they would huff off, presumably with the knowledge that the money was in the freezer, back to the spirit world.

    The more I watched the mediums work, the more I thought "I can do that" - but at every turn I was sent away - circles were full, one medium who offered to teach me on a private basis fell ill with her heart, and couldn't commit after all. It seemed as if I was never meant to move beyond seeing the dead, unless I could get one break. 

    End of part 1. 


    As promised, my sister writes under the name of Sue Munroe, and her real and proper books can be found in bookshops as well as Amazon,


  2. What's with all the Unicorns at the moment ? I found myself on Inspiral's stall on Sunday handing over yet another Unicorn keyring (ony £2 and the sweeeeeetest thing you could think of) and saying to my customer "yes, Unicorns are really hot at the moment !"

    Following fast on the heels of Fairies and Angels, Unicorns are the latest thing to inundate our lives - type "Unicorn" into your Pinterest group, and find everything, from Unicorn Hair, stationery, bags, tshirts, and of course, Unicorn body glitter - aka Unicorn snot !

    Unicorns are, of course, mythical creatures, who first appeared in the consciousness as blue eyed, horned beasts, in the 4th century BC. In the Middle Ages, they represented chastity and virginity, and were featured on tapestries and embroideries. Moving to current day, they raised their glittery little faces to the cult of "My Little Pony" and took over the girls aisle, as well as their hearts.

    I think that they became so popular as they literally "rode in" on the little girls love of horses, but making it super-special with gorgeous colours and a mystical horn. 

    And we are in need of a little magic right now. In a world that is dark and depressing, and with our futures uncertain, don't Unicorns, with their sparkle, glitter and beautiful colours just bring the right amount of light into our lives ?

    The healing power of Unicorns is now becoming more apparent. Whilst Angels heal with the heart, Unicorns heal with the soul, and to combine the two creates the most beautiful healing energy.  Inspiral is fortunate to be home to Clair Missen and her Reikara Healing. Clair channelled Reikara direct from Source, and was given the Unicorns to play a part.

    This has resulted in a beautiful healing modality, which utilises both Angelic and Unicorn Energies, as above,

    We are  taking bookings now for Clair's next course, which is on the 24th of June. To take part, please use the following link :

    I hope to see you there, so that you too can harness the powerful energy of the Unicorns ! 

  3. Sleep Disturbance and Spiritual Growth


    Many of us on a Spiritual path complain of sleep disturbance. This could be insomnia (yes, I am writing this at gone 1.30am), too much sleep, or simply just poor quality sleep, where you can be out like a light, but just don’t seem to benefit from it. 

    Those having these issues should take a look at their Spiritual world for potential answers. I believe that sleep anomalies tend to happen most when we are undergoing an energy shift, or an “upgrade” as I prefer to call them. 

    These upgrades ping into your consciousness at any random time, but often prefer to hang around until you are at your most receptive – ie tucked up in bed, relaxed, and not distracted by day to day activity.

    Having managed to ping – they then bed themselves in for some good old fashioned housework – building themselves a nice little niche from where they can impart their knowledge. They do not have any conscience about disturbing your rest – their sole purpose is to upgrade, and help you along your Spiritual path.

    So what can we do about them ? First of all, we have to accept and welcome them. They may feel like unwanted intruders at this point in the game, but we really do need the wisdom and information that they are downloading for us – albeit in an unforgiving manner. 

    It may be that, in this acceptance, we just give up and get up, rather than trying to battle with them in your bed. This solution does of course assume that your time is your own, but even with the 9-5, I used to find getting up and being constructive (note to self NOT hoovering as rest of household are not sharing your experience !) meant that at least I was not exhausted at work in that groggy manner typical of a bedtime battle with sleep.

    It may also be that the times that “normal” people class as sleep time are just not natural to you. We are all programmed with our own specific needs and purpose, and that includes the need for sleep. By battling against your body’s own setting, and trying to align yourself with the “standard” you can be lining yourself up in a whole lot of trouble.

    Also don’t forget that the wee small hours are often those at which our psychic ability kicks in – as it is quiet, and you can concentrate. Keep a special journal for the night – where you can jot down all thoughts and impressions – this can make fascinating reading further down the line, when upgrades are completed and documented.

    Finally, don’t forget to read, or gather information from any source that may help you with your sleeplessness. We have studied the subject of sleeplessness, and there are things you can do to help you on a holistic level. Check out the workshop at the end of this article for more information on these natural approaches.

    But over and above all, try to accept your sleep invaders for what they are – and learn from their visits. Remember – they are part of what makes you “special” !
