Alison Stead – Spiritual Medium (Based in Rutland)
Hello and welcome to my website ... please take a look around, and feel free to contact me should you have any questions.
I love working with those in the Spirit World ... and my aim always, is to give you the best possible reading, whether that be in person here in Rutland, or making use of modern technology, such as Skype … which is great when distance is an issue.
My readings are caring, compassionate and evidential; I am known for the evidence that comes forward from Spirit, as well as the meaningful and relevant messages that are received.
I live and work in the small, but incredibly picturesque county of Rutland; I am regularly invited to take my Spirit work into the neighbouring counties of Cambridgeshire, Leicestershire, Lincolnshire, Northamptonshire, into the Midlands and beyond.
My Spiritual Journey
I would like to share a little bit about my journey so far, why I have such a passion for Spirit, and why Mediumship is so important to me ...
I have been aware of Spirit since I was born; as a baby I was very poorly and actually died and visited the Spirit World twice, only to be sent back to earth on both occasions ... Obviously I had work to do!
Throughout my childhood I was frequently made aware of Spirit, with each experience becoming more tangible. I was banned from Sunday School when I was 10 (for asking too many awkward questions) and I started searching for answers, exploring various belief systems, which I must say I found fascinating ... My experiences with Spirit continued throughout my teenage years. However, it wasn't until my early 20's, and after a particularly strong experience, that I realised something may be going on ... before then, I just assumed everyone experienced the same kind of things as me.
I reached my thirties completely unaware Mediumship even existed, let alone Spiritualist Churches. One day a friend who had an interest in this asked me to go along with her to visit a Spiritualist Church (Kettering SNU) ... For me, it was an absolute revelation ... Suddenly, everything made sense!
Soon after, it seemed as though the floodgates magically opened; I found a Spiritual group in the town where I lived, and was soon invited to join a Development Circle run by a lovely lady called Nicky, I realised there was a lot to learn about Spirit. I started sitting for Spirit once a week, which shortly became twice a week after I was (very surpisingly) invited by Donna Stewart to join her 'Advanced' Development group. Here I continued to develop the different faculties and learn about the History and Philosophy of Spiritualism; absolutely fascinating!
I also read anything about Spirit Communication that I could get my hands on ... I became a bit of a Spiritual information sponge!
I never had any intention of working publicly with Spirit ... I was more than content sitting in those Development Circles, just absorbing and loving being in the energy of Spirit. It was around 10 years, before I very tentatively started to work with the public, offering one to one 'Mini'-Readings; it was another two before I ventured onto (or I should say was strongly persuaded/pushed) on to the Platform, which I had NEVER been going to do ... (funnily enough, I now do a LOT of Platform!)
Fast forward a number of years, and I am very happy Serving Spirit ... it brings great joy to many people, I love the Healing that reuniting our Two Worlds can bring, and it is my absolute pleasure to be able to share the love between Both sides of Life ...
I still access further Development at Spiritual Seminars, or with other Medium Tutors, as often as I am able, as well as listen to my own Spirit Guides. I don't ever think we stop learning or developing Spiritually ... to me, it is a personal, and lifelong process. Working with Spirit, brings such a sense of peace, and it is such a pure feeling when we are able to blend so closely with Spirit ...
This site will regularly be updated with my Diary, Workshops and other events, as well as an interactive Blog and information about my work, so please do keep popping back to see what's new!!
What do you enjoy doing away from work or your day to day activities? Do you allow yourself enough 'down time' to genuinely relax, spending time doing things purely for you, your personal Soul's nourishment and growth? It took me years to get my head round how important it is to do this ... It … [Read more...]
Feel like you're going round in circles? Sometimes it can be hard to find the 'right' development Circle ... On occasions it won't 'feel' right ... You may have to travel quite some distance. Maybe you work shifts, or aren't able to leave the house for whatever reason. Maybe for some reason, your … [Read more...]
