On Monday 5th October at 7.30pm there will be a live interview on our Centre page with Spirit Photographer , Centre Healer and Member Annette T.
Annette produces the most amazing images of spirit on her Glasses, Crystal’s and in the air. On her interview she will explain how she blends with Spirit to produce the images. and how you can experiment yourself using a mobile phone and dim light.
Here is a short history of Annettes journey into Spiritualism and how she started experimenting to get the images of loved ones.
This is a quick synopsis of how I was awakened and touched by the Spirit starting my journey into spiritualism and beyond to this day.
My father died in early 1992 I went straight down to be with my mother and stayed at a hotel over night.I was awakened by a hooded figure in brown at the bottom of the bed I sat up and could not believe that it was my father who I was very close to.
He spoke to me and asked me that I would always take care of my mother and that he loved me.He then dissolved.I was shaking and I knew that I was experiencing something that was very special and that this encounter would be the start of my spiritual journey.
I took my mother home with me back to Stafford the next day and two days later I saw a advertisement for Stafford Spiritualist church .You guessed it I went along it was a Sat and it was a half day workshop.I was selected from the people their to go on the platform to be involved a couple of experiments.This made me very nervous but to my astonishment I was able to complete the exercises with flying colours.
When leaving the premises the president rang down the stairs with pamphlets in hand saying “You have potential “ My head was buzzing with a mixture of nerves excitement and anticipation and I said to the president I will be back. I was the next day for the divine service.At this service the first for me I had a message from my grandfather and was given names of relatives associated with him plus I was told that my grandfather was singing Abide with me but he also sang Rock of ages.
I just broke down I cried and cried.This is what I was looking for I would join the church.
I did join the church I went to everything I could I had first class tutors and I became more involved with everything spiritual I always wanted to be a healer I qualified in 1996 and still healing to this day. I did a year of the mediumship course Three were selected from our church and each week we had to drive thirty miles to attend Dedication I think.I decided that I didn’t wish to do the platform work and wished to put my energies into my healing.
I worked on the church committee performing various rolls and I was Vice President for quite a few years loving the involvement the people the spirituality.
I moved away from Stafford to Torbay in 2005 and I found a beautiful cosy church at Newton abbot I was welcomed by Phil and Sheila Scot and I joined the healing team.
I took over from Anne as healing leader when she returned to Paignton church.
I was introduced to physical sitting with Phil and Sheila each week for quite a number of years.This was the first time for me although I had been sitting in a trance circle for eighteen months back in Stafford. I stayed at Newton Abbot church for ten years but then I decided to go to Paignton church as it was known then I lived very close and I wouldn’t have to travel
At this time I got interested in seeing if I could capture any paranormal images so I could quite often be seen clutching a camera just in case.
I started taking orbs and got very interested in this and found out that there were sometimes faces.Anne and myself went to a weekend all about orbs at Glastonbury there were people from America showing slides and speaking about what they were exactly and going into the deeper side of things.
I continued on with taking orbs then light beings light phenomena anomalies.
Then a voice within said join a paranormal group to get experience of taking images.This I did joining two local groups over a two year period and picking up the odd image .
I left the last group as I had experienced it Time to move on.
The start of me taking images in my glasses is when I was wearing them looking into a mirror.What I saw was a face in the lenses I was excited about this and continued each day just with glasses on and the right light.Blending with the energy and hoping that each day I would be able to see someone’s loved one.
I now take images on crystal plastic shiny paper and in the air.
I have to add that I have sat with many physical mediums over many years as I have a absolute passion for this type of mediumship. I was very lucky to have sat with chosen sitters with a well known physical medium for many months on a regular basis.This cemented my commitment to work for the Spirit world and with them connect their loved ones through the Spirit to me and for me to show.
I have had quite a few people recognise their loved ones and the joy that this gives is something special and I know that I am doing my job which I will continue to do as long as I am needed. Annette T.
