At one of the Churches I would give classes every one in a while. Sometimes they would have a Psychic fair and I would participate.
As for being a Medium, some might say I am and some might say I am not.
Why did I quit? I live in the USA but at the time, my wife and daughter were in the transition of moving over 8500 miles to be in the USA with me. We arrived on our way back to the USA at Los Angeles airport on a Thursday. At the airport, we were stopped at immigration. I was detained for a few hours and my right knee swelled up and the skin broke. I got home and never gave it a thought about the broken skin. That Sunday I went to Church and afterwards sat across the table from the woman who played the piano and organ while we drank some coffee and ate some cake. It turned out she had just got released from the hospital for having MRSA (bacteria that eats you alive) on her lungs. It turned out the hospital did not get all of her MRSA. I got MRSA from her and it stayed with me for over 1 year. I was even told to get my affairs together because I was probably going to die. I did not die but she died from MRSA shortly after I got MRSA.
I think about going back every once in a while..... it is just a matter of time.
Now that I have talked about myself, tell me about yourself.
Wow! You were very unlucky to get infected by MRSA (a different bacterium from the one that causes so-called 'flesh eating' necrotising fasciitis incidentally) and to have been sick for so long. You must have thought your time was nigh but thankfully you made it through. Hope you had good medical insurance!
You say you live in the US and based on words you'd used elsewhere I'd already figured that out. I'm guessing you once lived elsewhere with your wife and child and you were all being processed by border control / INS, your family having traveled 8500 miles to join you. That's a long way east or south they had come from!
I'm well aware that the US Spiritualism scene is somewhat different from ours here in the UK but based on what you've said about giving messages, healing and addresses in chuch that sounds like mediumship to me. Do YOU consider yourself a medium?
Tell you something about myself you ask? That's nowhere near as interesting as your story but here goes. It's well over 35 years since the bereavement that led me to becoming a Modern Spiritualist
and doing what I do now. Not just here (occasional visits nowadays) but another website where I am active daily.
In spring and in our so-called summer thru early fall I live in the UK. Early fall thru early spring I'm a snowbird in AZ. My website is populated predominantly by North Americans, predominantly citizens of the USA. From their enquiries and responses, along with my own experience of the US, I have a fair insight into what's going down. In the UK I'm also pretty au fait with what's happening.
Like I said, nowhere near as interesting as your story.
