My Spiritual Journey From 1995 to Present
In 1995 I had my spiritual awakening and found the reality of my own spiritual existence. Soon after that many of my spiritual abilities opened up. Sadly, I got some bad spirits that have been deliberately blocking my abilities ever since that time to the present day. However, slowly they are coming back to me bit by bit. As I understand it, the spirit realms are also working very hard to bring far more spiritual protection to us. So my spiritual journey started in 1995 in my spiritual awakening.
Moving back home from Guildford to continue my spiritual journey
In July of 1995, I moved back to Bognor Regis, which is just 7 miles from where I was born. One of my reasons was to be closer to my family once again. Soon I found a local spiritualist church and started going there a few times a week. It was a place of learning and I also went weekly for healing and to both mediums services. I was having mental issues by this time and my mother and grandfather in spirit gave me a lot of love and encouragement through the mediums to keep going.
It was great going to the church, I loved it and continued my spiritual journey of learning. I sat in the spiritual awareness class. Sadly these 3 spirits still seemed able to block most of my abilities. In reality, the spiritualist church was a Godsend in a time where I inherited many mental illnesses.
My mental health
Its funny that most people think it will never happen to them. But sadly anyone can succumb to a mental illness, it just takes the right triggers and conditions to cause it. As it happens it was these three spirits causing most of my problems mentally. They got a lot worse attacking me everyday most of the day and even at night in my dreams. I become depressed and even had dark thoughts of ending my life at times. I saw my doctor and he put me on medication. As it was a spiritual attack the medication did not help in the slightest bit. However, it did help me to sleep better, or get back to sleep after these spirits had woken me up with a nightmare.
I believe this was all a lesson, that would later help me to become a very loving and compassionate healer, among other things. I have recovered from all of my mental illnesses now, but it was an uphill struggle and took me many years. It was not until 2008 that I found I could begin my long journey of self-healing.
Here is a list of most of the mental illnesses I when through and they lasted from 12 to 17 years. Depression, split personality disorder, anxiety, insecurity, emotional detachment, desensitized, identity crisis, split personality disorder, inferiority complex, suicidal thoughts, eating disorders, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and several others at times. This sure gave me an insight into the suffering of others.
This gave me some good lessons and a great deal of determination and strength to overcome all the was wrong with me and fight my demons of mental illness. By the end of 2010, I had pretty much recovered from all my mental illnesses. It was hard work, but I was determined not to let life or these spirits beat me. They still give me problems, but I am more able to cope with them now and hope soon they will be out of my life for good! It is also true that some spirits returning through reincarnation to this world, do ask to be with a life that will suffer much, as this gives them even more strengths in life when reawaken to all their past lives once ready back within the spirit realms.
Back in 2000 I became a spiritual healing trainee at my local spiritualist church. It was a two-year course to become fully qualified. After six months and not feeling that well, I decided to stop doing it.
My YouTube Channel
In 2007 I bought a little camera to take photos with and noticed it also took video. So, I bought a memory card for it and started making some videos to upload to YouTube. I made 32 videos in all in 2007 and some were quite popular. Many of them were guided meditations and healings. Then in 2009, I moved out of the homeless hostel I had been in since 1995. I had been there 13 years during my mental illness. I was lucky to get the help of a charity who helped me greatly to get government housing, which is very secure. It is where I now live in my one-bedroom flat you might have seen on my new videos.
A month after I moved in I opened my main YouTube channel, that I use today and begun making new videos. I made many softly spoken guided healing meditations among others and teaching videos. Then in 2016, I made my first Reiki ASMR healing video. It was then that my channel really took off and got lots of views and has continued to grow since that time. It made me so happy to be able to help so many more people.
Reiki healing was meant for me in my spiritual journey
I truly believe I was meant to become a qualified reiki healer in my spiritual journey. Since 2012, I was trying to pluck up the courage to go learn reiki with my friend Sarah, who I had known for many years. She is a Reiki Teaching Master. I booked to go a couple of times before to learn with her and ended up chickening out because I still did not feel mentally well.
Then one day in 2015, she posted on Facebook that she was starting a Reiki 1 class that afternoon. I had a car by now, which made me feel more secure about going to learn with her, as she lived 15 miles away. I messaged her and asked if I could join at the last minute and she said there was not enough space for me. But an hour later she phoned back and said we will make space for you to come!
I am so glad she did and I took to reiki like a duck to water. It really did resonate well with me, and I believe it was part of my destiny to become a reiki healer on my spiritual journey of life.
Reiki 1, 2, Master Healer and Master Teacher
I only planned to take my Reiki 1, self-healing and Reiki 2 the reiki practitioners levels with Sarah. But I enjoyed it so much, that I went on to take my Reiki Masters healers level and then my Reiki Master Teacher level, so that I could teach others the gift of reiki. I have so far only taken on a handful of reiki students by choice. They have all done their Reiki 1 and 2 with me. I have not taught any Reiki Masters yet, because I feel you need to be very dedicated to become a Reiki Master. This year I taught such a person and they took their Reiki 1 and 2 with me. Once they have had enough experience, then I hope they will be my first Reiki Master Healer to teach and qualify.
How I intend to continue developing
I really love reiki so much and I enjoy seeing how it helps people who come to me for healing distantly and in person or on YouTube with my healing videos. So, I fully intend to keep doing this. I am really hoping the problems of these spirits blocking me will be resolved in the next year or two, so that I can pursue other spiritual passions. And that is to be a clairvoyant medium, giving readings to others here from their loved ones and friends in spirit. It is such a beautiful gift to reconnect people with their loved ones in spirit.
To sum up
So I am happy with the path I have trod, as it has taught me a great deal. I hope to keep developing and healing others for many years to come 🙂
