As you may have read in The Early Days, I was inspired to start hands on healing around 1990. I had no instruction or guidance at that time and was not aware of my healing potential. Having ‘retired’ in 1998, I had plenty of time to actually focus on my spiritual development and was drawn to read spiritual books.

Everything made perfect sense to me, it was just like remembering something I had always known. I finally made the effort to meditate in the year 2000. I had been drawn to this 10 years earlier but due to pressures of work and the fast lifestyle I never quite got round to it.

Looking back now it would have been beneficial if I had tried a little harder to relax from the stressful life I was living in the UK. Isn’t hindsight wonderful? I have the gift of foresight but sometimes I overlook some important messages – oops!

By 2002 I was guided back on track. I was actively healing thanks to the help of a Scottish medium Cecilia Cartwright who happened to be in Cyprus just when i needed guidance. Cecilia spent many hours and days explaining and helping me, opening my psychic channels and passing on her knowledge of healing and the spirit world. This understanding gave me confidence and opened many doors for me – thank you.

David AnthonyIn early 2003 I flew to England to participate in a week’s course at the Arthur Findlay College, Stansted, a college for psychic and spiritual studies. I have subsequently attended 6 interesting and helpful courses there. The SNU (Spiritualist National Union), have over 400 churches which offer healing and guidance throughout the UK. I can highly recommend several tutors from the college; Libby Clark, Paul Jacobs, Janet Parker and Mallory Stendall to name just a few. They all deal with different styles of mediumship and run weekly courses at the college throughout the year. (For the SNU website link, see “How to find a healer”.)

David AnthonyIt was during this course that I was reminded of the great works of Harry Edwards, a prominent UK spiritual healer who passed over in 1976. He came to visit me, or at least his spirit did, through the mediumship of Paul Jacobs, and explained that when healers work together simultaneously the spiritual energy is increased, therefore the benefits to the recipient are greater. He called this ‘battery healing’. Harry was committed to healing for more than 40 years and it seems to me that he is even more active these days as a spirit guide and healer. Don’t think life stops when you lose your physical body. After a period of time in spirit we are given the chance to continue in the fields that interest us, evolving and learning. When we are ready, we move on to the next spiritual dimension.

Harry preferred to heal publicly so that more and more people would become aware of the gift of healing. This he did almost daily in his sanctuary in Burrows Lea, Guildford and frequently demonstrated healing in spiritual churches, theatres and even in the Royal Albert Hall. He encouraged me from the other side to start healing in public and assured me that eventually I would be using modern technology to reach even larger numbers of people than he did.
