COMMUNICATIONS WITH SPIRIT DON’T ALWAYS NEED EVIDENCE
|| written on Thursday 13th July 2023
Going back through my growing archives of spirit-inspired writing is a real treat for me. As I read some of the original sessions, such as today’s sample, I’m amazed at the variety of subjects that the speakers choose to talk about. But even though this form of communication is very much still mental mediumship, it differs in its requirements.
Public mediumship requires the pursuit of evidence to be the number one motive. That essential proof of the continuation of life is why the medium is bringing the two worlds together. If evidence is not there, the occasion could be thought of as quite pointless, and the sitter will be no more convinced after than before the reading.
Today’s example offers no evidence as such. The conversation contains no revelations and nothing to convince anyone that there is a life after this one. But for me as the transcriber, it doesn’t need evidence. I’ve learnt to trust the connection and in doing so, have established a relationship with the speakers the other side.
It’s also important to remember that the words I transcribe originate from my own mind, as does everything a medium forwards. The process involves me listening to the conversation in my mind and writing the words as fast as I can. If I error in the composition of the sentence (and in doing so change the message), the speaker usually corrects me and asks me to rewrite the sentence nearer to their words. They often repeat what they said, so I can transcribe it more accurately.
But because this is often just a normal conversation, akin to one we would have each day with our family and friends, the requirement of evidence is not as essential. That doesn’t mean we can’t learn from it, far from it. We can learn how ordinary life continues to be after earthly death.
In today’s archived example, the male speaker is keen to tell me about his life on earth. And why shouldn’t we embrace that? Why shouldn’t we occasionally let them talk to us in a normal fashion, like a normal conversation?

I am here and ready for you. Your energy is so much stronger now you’re sitting in your cabinet more. Keep doing this regularly and I believe we will be able to give you some phenomena in a few months.
You were correct in telling all those voices in your mind to be quiet. They all want to speak! You have been querying who we are as individuals when we talk to you.
As we’ve said many times before, it really isn’t important, and knowing doesn’t add value to the conversation. However, so you know, I was a man on earth. I still am, for that matter! My name was Breta. I came here around 80 of your years ago. My life on earth was a tough one. I was brought up in a family with many other children. We had to ration everything. Opportunities for me were sparse.
I never got to do anything that I had dreamed of. But I worked very hard. I lost a hand when I was working in a factory. That really did add another layer of struggle.
I did meet a lady I loved. But she passed away before we’d had a chance to marry. I’d always been aware of there being this world, where I am now. But they were times when such beliefs were best kept to themself. I never really had much chance to see if I’d be any good as a channel.
I used to love walking in the countryside and talking to the trees. I always thought they could hear what I said. Do you know what? I’m glad I had the life I had. I look back now with so much more richness for all the experiences I went through.
Perhaps you’ll let me come back and talk some more with you? English was never my first language, but here, that does not matter. What words we think appear to be automatically translated.
I’ve watched many of the other speakers you’ve had and am in admiration of how you write so accurately what we say to you.
Your energy isn’t as strong today. I feel you may have a few thoughts distracting you, so if you pardon me, I will say goodbye and I look forward to you inviting me back to talk.

Re-reading this session so long after I sat for it means I have a fresh approach to the message contained within it. It appears like a normal everyday conversation. The speaker is wanting to share things about his life when he was living on earth. Could I have made it all up? Of course I could have. But why would I want to do that? There would be nothing for me to gain from that approach. So based on that, I feel the session deserves this inspiration award.
▶ The name offered by the speaker, Breta, suggests either a person from Ireland where that was a common name, or from somewhere in Europe. I prefer the latter because of his mention of English not being his first language.
▶ My impression is that this speaker is a student of mediumship in his world now. I feel I want to consider that he might have been invited to use this occasion to speak with me, from the group of speakers that gather together for these sessions. He may have been told to keep his conversation basic and avoid getting involved in anything too deep. Another feasible possibility is that he is knew to that side and is being given an opportunity to talk with someone on earth.
▶ Acting as a channel for his words, I can never know who will read his message, some time in the future and know who he was.
ABOUT MY WORK
I discover great insights from this form of mediumship. Writing the words that are spirit-inspired has given me an education that has helped so much in my understanding of life the other side.
Over the time of doing this writing, I have learnt to accept and trust this relationship. I am aware that many readers of this work will have doubts of the validity of it. I understand that. But I have come to realise that what others think or believe is not important to me, only to them. I work in good faith and belief that these communications are from an alternative source than my own mind.
To be sceptical is healthy, but to be cynical is evident that your mind is not open enough to the possibilities. So I always welcome comments, even if they reflect your scepticism and suggest your questioning of this process.
Of course, if you’re cynical, or just don’t want to believe it, you can unsubscribe from my work and move on. It’s obviously not meant for you at this time in your life.
