My work is influenced by life and nature. Everybody and everything has a story. I look beyond what the eye sees, gaining my inspiration from the life force of the subject. By doing so I am able to access the full picture.

My roles are varied depending on which head I have on. I teach workshops and courses on various subjects, give psychic readings and demonstrations, paint and draw. My passion is writing and I am presently in the process of penning my autobiography.

I also have a a paranormal guidebook "Cleansing the Doors of Perception" and if you are also interested in psychic and spiritual development, poetry and inspi…

Re-inventing Myself Healthwise and Spiritually

16th October 2018. Starting weight 13st7.8lbs. Day two on a healthier eating plan, also taking magnesium and turmeric. Wearing a magnetic back brace at the moment to help improve posture and ease my back pain and to take some of the pressure off my chest and stomach. Need to see how it goes. Got appointment with doctor Friday to see about stopping or changing medication. Going through a complete transformation physically, mentally and spiritually.

At the moment I am only eating 1 good sized meal per day. 2 slimfast shakes per day 2 x 400mg of Magnesium Citrate and 400mg of Turmeric. I am eating a normal meal just less of it. i am snacking on grapes when I feel the need for something to eat. I drink fresh orange juice, black coffee and water. I allow myself 2 snacks up to 150 calories each if I need them. Exercise is minimal at the moment until my breathing problems improve a little.

19th October. Now at day 5 and have lost 2.4lbs. Which, although not a lot, is positive. Plus I have made…

Staying Within Confidential Boundaries

While on a weekend away in London, having some laughs about the past with a friend, I realised how wrongly certain topics could be perceived by others. As a psychic/spiritual reader you make a conscious, or unconscious, oath to abide by the rule of confidentiality and 99 % of the time this is so; in fact you would be hard pressed to remember most of the readings you give. But, what of that other 1%? The 1 % is made up of readings that have stood out in your mind because they are extremely traumatic, bizarre, funny or otherwise memorable. Due to the volume of readings I have given over the years the ratio of these types of readings is quite high. It is natural that you would feel the urge to tell someone but obviously as a professional you would not share the intimate details of someone’s life with the world and its wife. As a teacher these incidents provide a valuable learning curve not just for my students but for myself. When you are helping to bring others into the world of psych…

How It All Started

I wrote my first book when I was just 8 years old it was an anthology which I illustrated myself, it was for a class end of term school project. I remember leaving it until the last minute and sat up until two in the morning to get it finished to take to school that day. My mum was not very happy as she had to stay up with me. But the hard work paid off and I got an A+. Unfortunately the school hung on to the book for a parent/teacher evening and I never saw it again. Since then I have written many articles, poems and stories, several of which have been published and I have been paid for. One of my stories was published in the Brixton Prison magazine “True Colours.” I have published four pamphlet size books (A Little Bit of Spirit, A Little Bit of Soul, Ghostly Experiences and When Spirit Calls) which are now out of print. The full version (38000 words) of When Spirit answer was first published as an ebook on Smashwords in 2013 (where it is still available); mainly beca…

Working with 'Spirit' isn't as easy as people think

When some people enter the psychic world they think it is an easy way to make money They don't realise the path is littered with pain (both physical and emotional), hate, fear, jealousy, deceit, poverty, hard work loneliness, grief and sometimes even danger. If it is not all love and light why do we do it? We do it because there are people out there who really do need help and guidance sometimes these people pay for our services, sometimes they are our one for spirit (our giving back). The sheer joy and elation you feel from helping someone far outweighs all the bad. We are not talking about ego here we are talking about an overwhelming sense of happiness and peace.

In the course of my work I often have information that has been gained through psychic or mediumistic means that needs to be passed on but has to be fine tuned before it is ready to be presented to the appropriate authorities or other parties.

No-one fully understands the sorrow that overwhelms you when you experience …

I'm Coming Back

Brenda DiskinJust now ·  Due to rather a heavy load on my shoulders recently I have allowed myself to fall into a crevice within which I turn my attention to mindless things, such as playing solitaire. This doesn't help to sort things out, it just blanks them out and induces idleness of mind, body, spirit and soul. Life is hard, sometimes it is downright crap but masking the bad stuff doesn't take it away, it just puts it off to a later date. So time to pull myself together and concentrate on unfinished projects, making ends meet and doing what I do best.

Writing Your Dream

Lately, I have noticed the number of people who appear to be attempting to become published writers. I suppose with the state of the economy everyone is trying to make money in whatever way they can, with many aiming to be the new J K Rowling or Stephen King. Although I have several friends who have managed, successfully to forge a writing career there are many that haven’t.
I have been writing since I was in junior school, for sixty years in fact. Even though I have had some success with poetry, articles, short stories and academic works I am still trying to get that novel written and published. My main problem at the moment is distribution of time, trying to juggle writing for fun and profit with studying for an academic degree.
The best advice I can give anyone who wants to write, for whatever reason, is read as many books as possible and enrol on a good writing course. If you cannot afford a writing course, then join a good writers group run by an experienced published author, pr…

Free is not always instant

And I wonder why I backed off from Spiritual stuff. Now please don't take this the wrong way. I will quite happily be there to help people and give free advice (sometimes giving up to two hours of my time) but I will not be a doormat. Also I will not always be able to drop everything to speak to you there and then. I will not send lengthy text messages as it is difficult with arthritic fingers to press small keys. In the past four days I have had six email messages 10 phone calls and three PM's on FB all asking for free help and advice (friends are not included in this as I am there for you anytime day or night).All but three have received advice, etc. The other three are as follows: one wanted me to speak to a friend about some paranoia activity in their house (don't even go there). I asked them to call back in half an hour as I had someone with me at the time. They never called back despite me putting my essay on hold to be ready for their call. (Anyone who writes will …
