THE RULES TO LEARNING THROUGH OPINIONS
So much of my development for spirit work has come from listening to others’ opinions. That’s the very nature of the process. I’ve listened and learned from some really wonderful tutors over my years of unfoldment. But I’ve also been guided by one or two less capable tutors.
Some of the more well-known mediums will openly tell their students that mediumship is something you are born gifted to do and is not a subject that can be taught in a manual-driven way. There are no manuals.
Every medium and every student will have their own way to connect, to listen, and to relay messages from the other side. But there are no one-size-fits-all methods of learning this craft. Every tutor will have their own opinions. So, as students, how do we know who to listen to?
In an article to be published in ‘The Inspired Spirit’ on 27th February, I offer some interesting observations and advice, specially designed for the newer students, though a powerful reminder to the tutors as well.
WORDS FROM SPIRIT-INSPIRED WRITING - *REPLAY*
The following writing was originally published for subscribers of the ‘MORE WFSIW’ in September 2022.

Hello again. We've been waiting for you to join us. You've been a bit down in the dumps, as the saying goes. We've known about that on this side and were concerned you might not be joining us for a while. So it's wonderful to have you back.
Yes, we know times are tough for you right now. I wish we had the answers for you, but sadly we don't. You have to do what is right for you. Some of the darker thoughts you've been having have not been good, but we knew that your character is strong and we are confident you'd not do anything silly.
I want you to understand that your work with us in the spirit world is good for you and your recent project of Spirited Talk has helped many people. But we recognise the issues you've been having with the lack of money and the apparent silence from your audience. You're a true sensitive and it's quite natural for you to respond and react the way you have. You carry strong views of what is expected from individuals working with us, but you must understand, everyone is unique and has their own unique patterns and ways.
You feel that your time with this project has come to an end and you carry a burden filled with disappointment. Don't, please. Your work served a valuable purpose and will continue to be remembered after you've moved on from it.
Your personal journey over the years has been one of constant change and adapting to the circumstances. Perhaps you'll see this period as such a transition. We do feel that now you have stopped worrying so much about the project and have apparently made a mental decision to move on, your life will flow freer. Your writing has become more important to you these days and we believe this is a healthy focus for you. Of course, we also know that we're going to benefit more from having your attention a lot more as you continue with your own personal education.
We know of a wonderful writing opportunity coming your way soon, so keep doing what you're doing so it can come into your path. We want you to bring this notepad with you and sit in your cabinet a lot more, please. We'll be there in concentrated energy ready to work with you. There is still much planned for you with us. Regarding your Spirited Talk Podcast project, remember that old story you used to share about how things move on? Write the story now in your words.
[me] To understand how important you may think you are, imagine your finger in a glass of water. Then remove your finger and see how long the hole remains where your finger was. The water fills the hole immediately as if your finger was never there That is the same in life.
Yes well done though you wrote that a little harshly towards yourself. But the sentiments remain the same. Perhaps you see your finger going into another glass of water very soon!
You just stopped writing because you thought we'd gone. We hadn't. Your mediumship gave you visions of us around a table and clapping you for what you've done. That was true. We were. We thank you for the work you've done so far. Walking away from the Spirited Talk Podcast is going to make way for the next opportunity. You've done good and nobody appreciates it more than us. The time has come for you to release the worries and let your future unfold again in a different direction.
Look out for the baker coming your way.
Time to sleep now, my friend. I know you want to write more, but not tonight, please. Rest up and return to us as soon as you can. Remember, utilise your cabinet in your sanctuary. We'll be there. Goodnight.
Our love comes your way, as does the love of your family over here.

I’m compiling this edition on 30th August, which is seven weeks after originally writing the words above. Reading them back now is reminding me of where I was mentally at that time. I was about to finish with the Spirited Talk Podcast and was in a fairly deep mental depression. Though my mind was made up, all the hard work I’d put into it was about to come to a final end and I was deeply upset.
The words appear to be of support from my inner spirit and that of the spirited team. The story of the finger in a glass of water has always stayed with me since learning it during my early life. Basically, it states that if you believe you’re important enough to be missed, like the finger taking a place in the water, realise that once your finger is removed, the hole will fill very quickly. But that is life in everything. Nobody is so important, as we all know when a famous celebrity passes. We soon forget them!
Regarding the baker reference - I’m not yet aware of the significance of that, but we’ll see as time passes.
In conclusion, the spirit team, or my inner spirit, was saying the words I wanted to hear at that time. They were sympathetic without seeming to be ‘in the hole with me’!
There are several ways you can support my work.

Your comments and feedback are always welcome. Thank you for being part of this community.
I totally agree with your comments regarding tutors, Trevor. I always tell my students ‘…take from me what sits well with you..’ because, as you say, we are all different when it comes to our individual methods of connecting with Spirit.
I also agree with the words from your communicators in that you should never underestimate the value of all you have done so far, or all that is yet to come. You HAVE touched lives, you HAVE made a difference and you WILL continue to do this in the future.
You speak of the glass of water. It’s true, if you place your finger in a glass of water then remove it, the water moves to fill the gap made by your finger but you miss the most important point in this, your finger may have gone but your ENERGY remains in that glass. Not all of it (obviously), but the essence of you remains and, should someone else follow suit and place their finger in the same glass, your energy will reach out and touch theirs in much the same way you’ve reached out and touched us all since the very first days of Spirited Talk.
Never underestimate your own power and your own ability to make a difference.
Thank you for all you do, Trevor. My life is richer for it!
