The Spiritual Medium

Yes, so once again it’s been a few months since my last blog entry – I'm sorry friends!

Life seems to have speeded up (does anyone else notice this?) and I have grand plans, but I never seem to put many of them in motion.

As well as that, I’ve been feeling a bit out of sorts lately.   I’m missing my family a lot.  They’ve been gone a long time, but at this time of year, Christmas, anniversaries, birthdays all come together, making me feel very homesick.

So, yesterday I went to a spiritual medium and I wanted to write about it.  I’ve never been to one before.  I am totally fascinated with watching people like John Edwards and Chip Coffey, but I also wonder if its just entertainment, cold reading or ‘fixed’.

I had heard about this lady in our local health food shop and as the day approached I felt myself getting nervous.  What if everything she said was nonsense?  What if no-one came through?  She specifically states that she is not a fortune teller, she is a channel for spirits on the other side, which may come through with information to validate who they say they are, advice or messages.

She was very normal looking and had a lovely soft voice and gentle energy.  This made me feel relaxed and the nervousness I felt disappeared.  She asked me to shuffle some energy cards and then she drew 6 cards, which were incredibly relevant to what is going on for me. So far so good.

I made a conscious effort to not say anything about myself, my current feelings or share personal details.  She sat quietly then started to bring forth information.  Without boring you, or giving you uninteresting personal details, I was totally impressed and blown away.  She came through with names, descriptions of how people looked (specifics, not generalisations!) and personal information.  One thing I will share with you is that five of my great aunts (all sisters) came through, which brought tears to my eyes.  I had never met them (we're talking Edwardian times) but she was able to give names and descriptions which I knew from photos and other things - fantastic!  She thoughtfully provided pen and paper and the reading lasted for about 30 minutes.  I was scribbling the whole time.

At the end of the appointment, I felt a huge weight had been lifted off my shoulders and I felt incredibly peaceful.  I truly felt that my family (about a dozen of them in all!) had come through and given me hugs and reassurance – which is exactly what I needed.

Names – yes they could be lucky guesses and so could the descriptions, but about 95% of what she said was spot-on.  I think the odds of that would be pretty huge.

I don’t think I would go again, at least not for a very long time.  Now, 24 hours later, I am still feeling very uplifted, peaceful and positive, and for that I am very grateful to her.

If you’re in Ireland and you’d like to pay her a visit, please do drop me an email or comment here and I will happily send on her details.  ~Siobhan xox

New Shop! Summer has also arrived! ✿

Hi everyone!

So sorry its been 6 months since I last posted!  I've been busy setting up a new Etsy shop and I really, really hope that you'll drop by and have a leisurely browse around!  And here it is:

The shop is filled with magical Spell Bottles and, hopefully in the next week or two, lots of other magical goodies.  This has been in the pipeline since last year and I'm so excited about it.  

Also, I'm now on Instagram.  To be honest, I will post  something nearly every day over there as I find its a lot more relaxed and spontaneous than putting together a blog post.  So, if you're an Instagrammer as well, please drop by and say hello!  You will find me at  here.

I hope you're all having a lovely, magical summer so far.  When I'm not working, I'm pretty much obsessed with our forestry which has suddenly transformed into a fairy-like place of moss and trees and birds.  It is my haven for sure and re-energises me when I visit.  I snapped this little tree in a beam of light the last time I was in there (yesterday evening!):

Please do visit me on Etsy and Instagram and have a wonderful summer!
