How I became a Spiritualist = Part II

Post by Bill on Mon Jan 21, 2008 4:10 pm

After the experience I had at Crookham Church I started to attend regularly, became a member and after some three months was invited to join their development circle.
The circle mainly consisted of sweet old ladies and although it was a pleasant enough experience, after a few months I couldn't see much personal progress.
I was then offered a place another circle run by the president of Aldershot Spiritualist church,
Mrs Luck. She was known to all as Lucky. She was certainly lucky for me because under her tutelage I began to develop clairvoyance quite rapidly. I also started giving healing under her guidance and through Spirit had some amazing results.
One Wednesday evening I attended Farnham Spiritualist Church for the first time and was shocked when the president asked if I would take the platform on a Sunday in two weeks time.
I then shocked myself even more by saying that I would. For the next couple of weeks I was a nervous wreck and thinking to myself that I was an absolute idiot for agreeing to do it.
The time eventually came and I was introduced from the platform and stood up to give the address. I remember as if it were only yesterday the first words I spoke as a platform worker.
I said "Please excuse me" and took a huige gulp of water and then said, "I am terribly dry and I am not sure if it is nerves or the fact that I had kippers for breakfast". This made people laugh and away I went. I can remember very little of the rest of the service, both the address and later the clairvoyance seemed to go past in a daze. It must have gone ok because I was booked again in six weeks time.
I gradually became more confident and did work around a few churches in Hampshire and Surrey. This continued untill I was posted away to Carlisle. Once in Carlisle, a new chapter in
Working for Spirit opened up for me. That is a story for another time.

Peace & Love

Interesting Bill that you should mention Aldershot Church as I had an experience there many years ago and it wasn't good but that's another story. Embarassed

Anyway keep sharing your experiences as they are most enjoyable.
