Spiritual Writing Workshops

by | Nov 18, 2016 | Blog

I run writing workshops across the Midlands and never cease to be impressed by the power of writing to improve the spiritual well- being of participants. Most of us write in English lessons in school, then life takes over.

Thereafter we write what we have to, office reports, work assessments, shopping lists, our children’s homework, but somewhere along the line, we forget to write for ourselves.

Those that attend my workshops frequently include a smattering of those who have not written for pleasure since schooldays. “Stan”, in his seventies, came armed with Suduko, just in case he could not keep up, “Dave” a healer, worked manually in the Potteries, and was curious. Before the day was out, Stan was writing beautifully about a rich life, and a long marriage, and Dave was writing Haiku on kilns and pots!

It is always like watching the awakening of a hibernating beast as new students dust down long forgotten skills to deal with memories, experiences and events which were yet to happen when they were in the classroom.

The mechanics of writing itself prompts memory, provokes questions, gladdens the heart as the good times come flooding back, and saddens a little, as some of the painful times return as well.

Also, the collective experience of being in a group entertains with the stories of others, and reassures a little, as we discover that the lives of others may not be so different from our own.

Writing, like any skill, has to be nurtured and developed. We may limber up with a few rhyming and word association games to dust off the cobwebs, and then take in a guided meditation to strip our minds of the clutter, and allow our creative juices to flow. After looking at the work of some published poets I then like to take in some poetic forms too, rhyming verse, blank verse, haiku and cinquaines to give the students some framework within which to unleash their creative energies.

So if you haven’t written for years, why not try again now? It is such a therapeutic exercise and there are so many creative writing and poetry groups out there to help you.

When writing spiritually, some wonder where to start – the answer is all around us. John Worth Edmonds in his 1853 work, Spiritualism said: “Man’s relation spiritually with the spirit-world is no more wonderful than his connection with the natural world. The two parts of his nature respond to the same affinities in the natural and spiritual worlds.”

Using introspective hypnosis, uncover the mysteries that may lie behind your physical and mental issues. Uncover the unique essence within each of us that goes deeper than our personalities. 

Releasing old patterns and thought forms brings you back into alignment. Awaken your soul, encourage your awareness and protect your boundaries in particular situations. 

I work one to one or in groups and offer sessions online via zoom and Whatsapp. 

Understanding the past, healing the trauma in a safe environment, releasing pain, it is all part of the journey.

Releasing Attachments and Shadows 
Many people feel that there is something holding them back- but they are not sure what it is. Repetitive behaviours, irrational fears and phobias, emotional paralysis, and unexplained illnesses can all be manifestations of attachments and shadows – events and encounters from the past which continue to haunt us. 

My regressions can target and uncover these attachments and shadows and  help you to understand them, enabling you  to let them go, thereby healing past traumas. 

Are you ready for your Journey? 


There is no way of knowing what you will experience during regression therapy.

People’s experiences can be very different. Some people may see glimpses of several past lives, whilst others may delve into one life in more detail, unearthing repressed memories that no longer serve them.

You may have been described by friends as an old soul or feel you have lived before. Some people can visit a place for the first time, yet instantly feel that it is familiar. Others speak of meeting someone for the first time yet feel as if they have known them all their lives.

A sound, smell, dream, or reaction to a situation can trigger memories of a past life experience. The smell of a perfume that your mother wore.

Some clients talk of souls that have chosen to reincarnate together such as partners, siblings, or friends to carry out tasks. An example would be a daughter who acts like the mother of the family or a strong connection with a relative who may have been your brother in a past life.

Some people may try past life regression out of curiosity, to see who they were in the past.

Others are in search of a path for personal growth and healing. Both are equally valid reasons for embarking on this therapy.

If you are feeling stuck in certain ways of thinking, feelings and behaviours, hypnotherapy can help enormously. It assists you in reframing negative thoughts and behaviours and encourages you to understand the reasons for this. It can help tip the feeling of loss upside down and allow you to view it in a positive way as you move to a higher understanding of situations. For example, instead of feeling like a relationship was a failure, hypnotherapy can help you see how the relationship helped you learn, understand, grow, and become more compassionate.

You hold the key to release yourself from past trauma, dreams and attachments from past lives locked in your memory. You will see things from a different perspective and realise you are more than what you see .
Opening the doors to past life records and working with them helps to release the chains of the past.  

As a client, you are fully awake and aware of everything going on around you. When I ask you a question, you have control of your mouth and body and express through words, what you are sensing (feeling, seeing hearing, knowing), what you are experiencing in your memory or what feels like your “imagination”.


To traverse through these memories, we discuss the issues that you would like to address at the beginning of the session.During my hypnosis sessions, there may be times when loved ones, lost souls, extra-terrestrials, or other beings have a message for my clients. You may just be curious but for those looking deeper for answers – there is soul work to do.
