Spiritual Mediumship With My Mum Changed My Life Forever

Losing a loved one, especially a parent, can be so hard, can spiritual mediumship help? I believe it can help us to move through grief and carry on with our lives, carrying a sense of comfort with us. Read my healing story to find out more.

That day when you have to take a parent to hospice

On the day I needed to take my mum to hospice, she had got to the point of not eating or taking care of herself well. She was also having fevers which caused her confusion.

Despite the fact that she was very upset at having to leave her nice retirement flat, it was time for professional care. So, I took her to the hospice which my brother had arranged.

It was an emotional car journey, but she needed to go.

Some of you may know how this blog started, partly inspired by experiences of spiritual mediumship related to my mum.

I used the US spelling since this is currently where I live, so it became Mom On A Spiritual Journey.

My mum’s story

My mum got very sick partially as the result of an (unnecessary) H1N1 vaccination.

When she became very unwell she began to speak about the future of our health system, and how

‘In 90 years’ time, people will no longer die of this type of illness’.

Margaret Hubbard

My mum knew she had made a mistake immediately after having the H1N1 vaccination (she was 82 at the time).

Immediately after the vaccination, she was experiencing terrible back pains. She was then hospitalized for a while.

After trying to put up with the pain, she finally called me in tears when she couldn’t take it anymore.

After some time back at home, my mum received a diagnosis of pancreatic cancer.

Despite of all of this happening to her, she was insistent that I start writing about what I know to help others.

So, I did what my mum told me…and started this blog.

A voice comes in

I only had two weeks to be with her in the UK and did my best to make the most of it.

I moved her into a hospice in the Spring of 2010 which my brother helped to arrange, drove her there, and helped her to settle in.

Once we got to the hospice, I settled her on the hospice bed, and we waited for the doctor.

Immediately I heard this voice in my head: –

Thanks for all you’re doing for Margaret, ducky!

In my shock and surprise, I just opened my mouth and said to my mum: –

Who used to say ducky?”.

Completely calm and collected, Mum smiled, and said: –

Oh, that’s Tony“.

When spiritual mediumship becomes real

spiritual mediumship

If anyone has experienced anything similar to this – then you’ll know that reading about spiritual mediumship and experiencing it firsthand are two quite different things.

Tony was Mum’s brother

They had an unstable childhood after their mum – my maternal grandmother Amelia – had passed away. 

This happened when Mum was only 7.

Mum was the youngest in the family at the time and had two older brothers.  Next up in age was Tony and then Richard (Dick).

Ultimately Tony ran away when he was 13 or 14 and Mum hadn’t seen or heard from him since.

Thank you, Salvation Army

In her mid-sixties she tried to contact him through the Salvation Army, and they were able to reunite. 

This was a very happy reunion. They had always got on so well when they were children.

After their reunion, Tony and Mum would go on drives around the countryside to locate information about their family history. 

They would have pub lunches and just generally enjoy their time together.

I only met Tony twice, both times I observed the same twinkle in his eye as my mum and a definite sense of bravery and ‘what the hey’ about the world.

I clearly remember him telling me to ‘follow my heart’ if I decided to move to the United States and marry my last husband.  He was very definite about it. 

Sadly, Tony passed on about three years before my mum did.

Still waiting for the doctor

Then I got the image of a fire engine (an old-fashioned one next to a church gate) and the same voice, presumably Tony’s, saying: –

Remind her about the bell

Mum bowed her head and smiled shyly and then laughed.  She said: –

We got into trouble.  Tony dared us both to climb on the engine outside of the church – when the firemen were away and ring the bell.  Our dad told us off really badly.

The timeline would have been pre-World War II.  I can only begin to imagine the telling-off they would have received!

At that point, the doctor arrived and that particular conversation was over.

More experiences during the following 2 weeks

As things turned out I only had those two weeks with my mum, but I had the honor of giving her reflexology sessions to help make her comfortable.

I also continued to give her an EMF Balancing Technique® session.

I had to give it to her over a three-day period…she could only take a little at a time.

There were a number of interesting conversations I continued to have with relatives who had already passed while I was at the hospice.

It gave me comfort when I had to leave and return to the States that she truly wouldn’t be left alone, even when living family weren’t with her at the all the time.

Hospice workers are wonderful, by the way!

During this time, I was also constantly humbled and uplifted by the beautiful work carried out in the hospice by everyone there – including the volunteers.

Both the doctors and nurses seemed to be very used to the idea of the people in their care being visited by those from beyond the veil.

I had conversations with the doctor and nurses about my spiritual mediumship experiences, and they were very used to visits happening as a part of somebody’s passing.

I think I was more surprised by my experiences than anyone working there, frankly.

Also, the supply of homemade cake.  Wow.  Tea and cake are of course a British institution. In that hospice, both were regularly available.

The love put into those trays of goodies was apparent to everyone.

Thank you to anyone who has contributed to a hospice in any way – you know what a wonderful thing it is.

It’s taken me three years to write this down…

I made notes of all my experiences, and today finally seems to be the day to share them on the blog.

I’d love to hear of any stories you’d be ready to share on the journey of a Loved Ones passing.

Until next time.

    Nicely shared, Sarah ! Working at Hospice is when reflexology found me 🙂 Spending time with those knowingly having very little remaining, is truly an honor. All sorts of revelations seem to perpetually evolve. . . . esp for those of us still muddling here on Earth, for now.

    Really lovely to hear more about your time with your mum. And I loved your comments about the hospice. What would we do without tea and cake :-). Made me a bit emotional actually.
    It’s my Dad’s 80th birthday today and my Mum will be 80 next year and I try to appreciate the time I have with them whenever we speak or see each other – not always easy – but getting a lot easier.
    Anyway thank you.
    Lots of love

    • Glad you enjoyed it, Julie.

      Always good to appreciate our parents whilst they are here…then it’s easier later on speaking from experience.

      Thanks for taking time to comment.

      Hugs from over here!
