Spirit “Passengers”

This is always a tricky topic to address. Some people refuse to discuss it at all, thinking it smacks of the work of the devil (whatever that is to them) or witchcraft. Others are (slightly) more open to the idea but don’t for one minute think it applies to them. And then there are those who understand the concept and accept that yes, that sudden change of behaviour or unexplained pain might just be caused by something as strange as a “spirit passenger”. In some books these are referred to as “entities” or “spirit attachments”. I think these terms sound a bit threatening and alarming, so I am not surprised that people with little experience of things spiritual shy away from the very concept. I prefer to call them “passengers” because in most cases that is all they are. What are they? Put simply, they are souls or spirits who have not passed over to the light as they should have done. How does that happen? I like to explain it like this. Most people (of whatever age) know deep inside when they are nearing the end of their life. Just as the soul worked hard at the start of its physical incarnation to loosen the ties to the non-physical world, so now it will start to loosen the ties to the physical world and to open up the pathways to that non-physical realm. It is starting to pack its suitcase, ready for the journey home. Sometimes when people visit an elderly relative, they will say “he’s not all here, you know.” No, he’s not – because part of him has already gone home! So when the final breath comes, the soul simply picks up its suitcase and off it goes, peacefully and easily. When the death is unexpected such as a car accident, for instance, or – sadly much more common nowadays – a shooting or a bombing – the soul has not packed its suitcase, it’s not ready to go. So it is lost, not knowing where to go. When this happens, the soul – being pure energy / vibration – will look around for someone whose energy field (or aura) matches its own vibration, or it will find someone whose energy field is so loving that it seems to have a Welcome sign on the door. I met someone many years ago who had picked one up at the scene of a nasty traffic accdent: she and her mother had been passing on the other side of the motorway just after the accident and the lady had sent out loving thoughts to all those involved. Her warm, loving thought was enough to attract the spirit of a...

SPIRIT RELEASE – COMMANDER GEORGE LEADS HIS TROOPS HOME

A good friend of mine, of the most spiritual ladies I know,  has some serious health issues, including a crumbling spine and constant pain in her chest. Unbeknown to me, she had decided to take herself off her long-term, heavy pain-killing medication a couple of days before I arrived, so she was not in the best of shape when I arrived. We agreed that I would work with her with hypnotherapy to control her considerable pain. No sooner had she gone into a beautiful deep state of relaxation than she began talking: “The mud is everywhere, they never told me it would be like this, where are my men . . . .?” At first I thought that she had slipped into a past life, but it quickly became clear that I was talking to someone in the trenches in Belgium in World War I. This young soldier, who gave his name as Commander George, was only in his mid-twenties, and felt desperately unprepared for the carnage all round him. His men were being killed, they were all knee-high in mud all the time, the stench of gas hung in the air and he was very frightened and confused. While talking to Commander George, he suddenly said, “I’ve been hit. The bits of metal . . . I’m on the operating table, I see the doctors, they’re taking bits of metal out of my body but it’s no good . . . oh lord, I’m dead, aren’t I?”
Having established that yes, he was indeed dead, I explained that he needed to move to the light, where he belonged. He was adamant that he was not going without his men, who were clearly there with him somewhere. While emphasising how well he had done his duty and praising his bravery, I told him he had to order his men to go to the light too. I invited him to see the pathway, to feel the love and the warmth, and to tell his troops to make their way to the light. Only when they had gone did he agree to go too. As he got closer to the light, he said, “oh my, there’s my mother! There’s my dog!” When my friend came back from that deep state of relaxation, she was as surprised as I was. She said that she felt Commander George, frightened as he was, scamper like a crab from her chest to her left arm, and it was from there that he went to the light. The troops – she said she counted at least eleven of them – were piled up her spine, and left via the base of her spine down a sort of chute. Touchingly, she...

College of Psychic Studies magazine feature about my work

The Spring 2015 edition of “Light”, the magazine of the College of Psychic Studies, included an article written by me about the way in which I mix elements of hypnotherapy, past lives and spirit release therapy when I am working with clients. The magazine surfaced recently from under a pile of papers, and I thought I would share the article with you – click on the link below. Judy’s article in Light...

Written testimonials

Sometimes clients will write me a letter – or, more commonly nowadays, send me an email – to let me know what changes have come about in their lives as a result of their sessions with me. It is always a pleasure to receive such feedback. A handful are reproduced here, to give a flavour of the wide range of issues that have been resolved. Names have been  removed to maintain client confidentiality. First, a selection of “one-liners” and then a few slightly longer explanations. “I’m more present, more awake.” “I left (the session) not knowing up or down …. There was lots of processing, and now I am lighter, happier and more joyful.” “I haven’t felt this good in my life.       I’ve turned the corner.” “The work you’ve done so far has been an enormous help, thank you very much!” “It’s easier for me to accept who I am. I’m happy with who I am, and I’m easier to get on with.”   “I really enjoyed the session, and did indeed feel the benefit of it. With regards my back, it felt very much improved straight away as you know, with a feeling of freeness that I had not experienced for years. ….. Also re the food issue, that seems to be improving too. Initially there didn’t seem to be any difference in the way I felt about food, but maybe a week or so later, it was like a switch had been flicked in my head, and I just felt all of a sudden that I ‘didn’t need to be fat anymore’ ….. It would be lovely for this to be something that I can leave behind in the past. Or perhaps more usefully, something that can be consigned to the mental rubbish bin as it is something that is now no longer required in my life.” “I’m calmer, more relaxed. I’m able to let go, I’m finding it easier to make decisions. My back is feeling much better. I have had problems with my right wrist for years, it is now loosening up and becoming more flexible.”   “Food portion sizes are now smaller, I’m feeling fuller sooner. I’ve definitely got more energy, and I’m doing more. I’m sleeping well at night. I’ve moved on from guilt and anger. “I’m good enough for myself.”     “I just wanted to drop you an email to let you know how successful my sessions were. I don’t think I will ever enjoy flying but at least I am able to fly. It was so nice to visit my son (and new grandchild) and this was made possible because of your help.”   “It’s been several weeks since I...

Feedback from Clients

I was recently going through my client files and I noticed some common (and very positive) threads among the feedback clients had been giving me, so I thought I might share them. Names have been changed to maintain client confidentiality. Maureen, late 40s, came to me wanting to get her life back under control, and to sort out a range of outstanding issues. We have indeed ploughed through a lot of “stuff” and Maureen is re-discovering her true self again. Feedback from her includes: “I felt very tired after the last session, but very relieved too. Things are falling into place.” “I feel happier, lighter. I’m finally letting go of the past.” Kathy, early 50s, came to me with food issues: she understood that her excess weight was a physical manifestation of her “holding on to stuff”. The first session of releasing spirit “passengers” was a revelation, and in the second session there was a very vivid past life which explained a lot about issues in this current lifetime. Feedback from Kathy included comments like: “My body is getting rid of a lot of stuff.” “I’m much calmer, I’m sleeping better now, and I feel stronger emotionally.” Tanya, early 30s, had issues with food and a fear of success. The past life was especially revealing, as she had not been able to openly use her healing gifts. Feedback from Tanya included: “I’m able to join the dots now, it’s all making sense.” “I’m sleeping much better now, and I feel more in control.” Janet, early 70s, wanted to regain control of her life. We released a number of spirit “passengers” and uncovered two relevant past lives which provided valuable insights into this-life issues. The session of soul retrieval was especially powerful and emotional for her. She commented, “the heaviness is lifting, I’ve reached the point of finding my strength and my power.” Karen, mid-30s, was hampered by a lack of self-confidence and fear of success. The past life session was especially powerful and answered a lot of questions about this-life issues and relationships. After that session, Karen commented: “So many things make sense to me now:” “I’ve been sleeping really well.” We also released several long-term spirit “passengers”, and after that session, Karen’s feedback included these comments: “I was exhausted for 30 hours after that session.” “My body has purged lots of stuff.” “I don’t have any more cravings for sugar, and I don’t comfort eat any more either.” Jackie, mid-50s, felt she had lot her way in life and was feeling overwhelmed by all that life had thrown at her. We released some long-term spirit “passengers” and did a lot of work on soul retrieval, an emotional session...
