Where is my Monument?






Born to live and destined to die…
But what about that which lies between?

If we are born to a life of privelage or dramatic deed…
then our future is probably assured in the historical records of life!

But what of the average person?
Or even those seeded, that never come to term?
Those born that never take their first breath?
Are we all otherwise born to have no testament,
to our very existence on this earth?

I recall waving as I drove past my dear Father,
We travelled to work in the opposite direction on the same long country road.
This happened every day for some years.
But now I drive the same road and, of course, there is no wave!
Just a loneliness. A memory of that which once was.
So where is dad’s monument? Could it be that memory?

What of my Mother?
Will ‘I’ be her testament to existence?
What of ‘her’ monument when ‘I’ am gone?

I guess that offspring at least, can provide some kind of testimony,
for the next or subsequent generations…
But what when they are gone?
What about all others whose existence has been surpassed,
to the point where there are no more generations perpetuating memories?

Perhaps it is too much to ‘expect’ a monument. Egotistical even?
Maybe we are supposed to be forgotten as individuals passing through this life.
Who knows!

Personally, I think it is quite wrong not to be remembered.
Even for a short time. In some way.
Yes. We must make the most of loved ones when they are with us.
But we must also make the most of them, when they are gone!

Stories, recollections and remembrance, particularly passed on to the young,
is perhaps a good place to start.
Photographs and token evidence of existence such as heirlooms,
items that were important to the owners and bearers,
should be passed on, even for a short time at least, to others. Family and Friends!
These alternative ‘monuments’ or ‘testimonies’ may not last forever,
but it is surely better to mark life with something than nothing?

I say “go now and start building your monuments”.
Your own. Created by your own deeds, especially toward others.
Create monuments of your loved ones, by laying markers.
Whether it be by a memorial on sites such as ‘Astral Unity’,
or the passing-along of memories and photographs, by way of family links, or even Social Media!
Long term, or short.
Make that effort!

Even to light a candle and spare a thought for a few moments…
Registers an acknowledgement, which becomes of itself, a monument to that existence.

Love and Peace.

Cleansing a school from Poltergeist activity…

Just a few weeks ago I was called upon as part of a specialist team of mediums, to cleanse a school of poltergeist activity. It was reported that several strange events had taken place in the school, such that there were now some very frightened children and staff needing our help and assistance. An attempt had been made earlier by another mediumship team but the poltergeist had firmly spoken and said it was not leaving. As well as this verbal activity, other events that had happened included cold spots, computers turning themselves on when they had been switched off, strange bangs and noises, ghostly sightings of a male entity, and taps turning themselves on in the children’s toilets. All of this was enough to stop the children (and adults) from wishing to use certain parts of the school and presenting no-go areas particularly for the school caretaker.

Upon entering the school and meeting some of its staff, it was immediately clear that their stress levels were at a max and they had witnessed enough activity to become distraught. I led the team and tasked them to deploy the following equipment:

  • All Spectrum Camera – (to photograph the main areas of activity)
  • Laser Thermometer – (to detect hot and cold spots)
  • EMF Meter – (to detect fluctuations in electrical energy)
  • Compass – (to detect shifts in electromagnetic energy)
  • Black Light – (to distinguish orb energy from air contaminants)
  • EVP Recorder – (to record sound extending beyond normal human frequency range)
  • Thermal Camera – (to detect and record temperature based spirit activity)

Initially the main rooms of activity were swept with the above equipment. Whilst temperature and EMF variations were recorded in the computer room (where computers had been affected in the past), and the rooms containing the toilet block, there was a specific range of feedback from several instruments in a storeroom/garage type building, which was located between all the rooms affected. The mediums clearly detected orbs, spirit colours and spirit energies within this room. There was one point in this room in particular that presented a vortex of energy, sufficient to turn a compass to read opposite poles. This is where I located myself and I concentrated my efforts on tuning in to this energy to engage in communication with the entity there. The poltergeist/spirit was a little hesitant at first, but eventually came forward to communicate [See thermal images below which captured this moment].

Spirit coming close and touching the boundary of my aura for communication










After taking time to carefully and calmly communicate with the entity, the poltergeist then withdrew its energy. At several points during the discussion, the Poltergeist said yes and I understand. This was recorded upon the EVP [with recordings below].

Thank you Yes Still Here

After the discussions, the energy eventually left the building(s) and a protection prayer was invoked to place light and protection around the school and the storeroom in particular, with no apparent recurrences being reported since.

A Sad World…

As I sit here…
reading books excluded from the bible.
I think of the great injustices of life!
The ability of humankind, to manipulate others
by word and deed, lies and misdeed,
to defraud and deceive for personal gain.
Could it be this World is, and is not, what God intended?
Yet he planned for it. Must have!
Else - was it wise to build everything on trust alone?
 I do not question god, or godhead or infinite power.
It is people that I question!
I wonder, if he is capable of such, does god feel disappointment?
Something is going to happen, perhaps needs to happen?
That is of biblical proportions…
I would ask, even then, like the Holy Books teach us… Will it be enough?
Whilst the beat of every mans heart…
fails to recognise the forces of good and evil played upon it…
then there will be WAR!
A World that hosts darkness, Is a World that hath no Wonder
Save for those bent on sinful ways!
The Love and Peace of our Lord, be with us all when we fall!
Yet still, we can Pray for the light…
Even a small gap in the curtain…
can throw enough light on the path, to guide others on their way.
The Father can chastise the Child, but who will chastise the Father?
Bring that which is within, without!
That all may be learned in their ways.
Love and Peace from AlanC

No to terrorism!

With one small voice amongst many I ask,
ISIS and any terrorist regime, please will you stop this?
Stop this needless, pointless, fighting and killing,
causing pain and suffering in the name of what? Religion? Idealism?

We are all human and should live together as one people,
let us respect one another and indeed, all life.
Please become enlightened. Do not let evil take your hearts. For those who kill others, there is not Martyrdom only an emptying of the Soul’s progress!

Your physical life, deeds and interaction with others, will determine your spiritual path. This can be an upwards and progressive path!

Instead, your lack of insight, application of inner knowledge to control your very being, causes ultimate submission to dark forces, this can only expose your spirit to a downward spiral of selfishness and self destruction! Therefore, you will never know the true error and futility of your ways until it is too late!

The path of true enlightenment comes from your God-given wisdom, the knowledge of right and wrong that is within us all and is our task on earth to uncover, acknowledge and practice. We must help others to progress with their life-lessons and this means preserving life, not taking it! Turn back towards the light now! Know Love and Peace. Feel it! Live it!

The Spirit Portal

He gazed upwards at the Portal,
that perfect ring of light.
A Tunnel with voices and sometimes form,
there, both day and night.
His face was one of distant thought,
pondering what came through.
A mix of dread and wonderment,
as loved ones called him to.
He knew a Journey lay ahead,
yet could not/would not face the fact.
That he had to leave those that he loved,
an awful scene to act!
“You’re all just waiting for me to die”,
a thought he voiced as true!
A reflection of his mind perhaps,
knowing there was nothing they could do.
Oh yes, they had tried several times,
when all, but Hope, was lost.
But even Chemo, his ‘Medicine’,
came at just ‘too Great’ a cost.
The Soul was willing, the Doctors too,
to try and gain more time.
To no avail, he lost his strength,
had reached his ‘End of Line’.
The Portal, it was steady now,
a floating Tunnel so bright.
The vision clearer, what to do,
emotion mixed with fright.
“Fear not” said I, to re-assure,
we know your journey is near.
The hands extend to guide you home,
just trust, the path is cleared.
There must have been a threshold crossed,
when his mind could finally rest.
A leap-of-faith, accepting those so dear,
could continue, he’d done his best.
So there it is, he stayed his course,
and showed us not to fear.
To follow one’s path with fortitude,
inspirational, it’s so clear.
I miss him, and know he misses us,
but sometimes he lets us sense,
The Sounds, the Smells, the Physical Ways,
that made our Love feel so intense!
He is with me now, as I write this note,
and I thank him for our Love.
The message here, is everyone’s,
they stay close to us, those above.
Thank you for your Love and Life Dad
God Bless

So this is Christmas…

Hello everybody and here we are again at Christmas, a religious festival and possibly time for some, to meet or greet family and friends. However, this period and the coming New Year also, is a time to reflect and consider past events and evaluate also where we (or the World at large) are going with our lives. So…

  • Is it about the Christmas Tree? No.
  • Is it about gifts and presents? No.
  • Is it about being with our family and friends? No.

We can all become wound up in the gaiety of celebrations and pious rites, in the name of our oft-coincidental religious faiths. What we should not lose sight of however, is the fact that, regardless of one’s own religious stand point; anecdotally at least, a man was born into the World at this time 2000+ Years ago, who eventually gave up his life in the name of promoting World Peace, ‘irrespective of Religion’.

This individual, whom we have all heard of, was born a person first and foremost. He was delivered to us, to provide a simple message to other human-beings, in fact he even left us ten simple rules to follow, to ensure our future well being when living together.

It is time now to remove the shrouds, that have been cast over our eyes and hearts in the name of Religion, and accept one simple fact. We were all born equal! It is our collective responsibility, to provide a duty of care over all life on this earth and the best way to set the example, would be to start with our fellow human-beings.

My message, is equally as simple as that from above, ‘Do Not’ go forward into the New Year as an indoctrinated robot. Make that change for the better. Embrace the ten rules and put being a loving, caring human-being, before religious dogma or anything else. Let us create a New and enlightened World together, Now!

Love, Peace and Blessings.

Losing a young life…

There are many who would ask… why did it happen so young?

One must remember that each precious moment that we live (yes even at a cellular level in  conception, in the womb or even in a coma), we are serving some higher spiritual purpose.

To experience even a fleeting moment of life, is still to “Live a Lifetime”!

We must carry this thought with us when losing any loved one, at whatever stage they reached in life. A Mayfly can live anywhere from 1 hour to 24 hours, yet it will be liberated spiritually for every micro-second of its existence. So too, are those whom we love and have lost, as they take their life-long journey across their own time-line of ‘being’.

I say, therefore, let us not be saddened at our loss. Instead let us be thankful on behalf of our loved ones, for that joyous opportunity that, against great physical and chemical odds, presented a moment for them to join us in the physical world. Providing meaning and value to both their own and our own life, for a time… however short!

Love and Peace.

Words of Hope and Inspiration…

I am delighted to receive a series of donated posts from Psychic
Medium, Kerry Louise. I hope these words help readers to find
comfort if facing problems in their lives. Kerry demonstrates
that we are never alone in life, we all have problems that
eventually pass, or, at least, become accepted when placed into
context with the problems of others in our transition through


For those facing a Broken Heart…
My heart feels wounded
my dreams feel crushed
but carry on for I do trust
I trust in things in all they be
what feels wrong today may not always be
Things happen for a reason


For those seeking to move forward in life…
Let the sun shine brightly
Let the wind blow free
let us forget all pain, fear and negativity
Let old wounds heal
with new days begun
set yourself free
today’s a new day yet to be won
Good Morning everybody. Have a great day
I am sending out healing and blessings to you in everyway
For those enduring a trial of faith or the loss of a loved one…
The day before mothers day
My nan who was as my mum
Passed away
She has appeared before me tonight
to give me hugs an embrace
and some insights
All is not lost nor all is gone
we in spirit we live
we carry on
Kerry dear you know this truth
but where have you been
you’ve been aloof
wrapped up in your troubles so
helping all is
all you know
But what about when the time is you
to gift yourself
the healing that you do
You can gift to you what you gift out
there is no crime
No one will shout
The love you share is all about
it’s everyone’s love
to help us out
You are not selfish to ask for some to
I love you Kerry
as others here to
Thank you for all the hard work that you do!


For those seeking to enhance their life or facing a decision on
options if life…
Dream big
Aim high
Make that wish
then trust the skies
Send out love
Give out hope
Don’t give up
No time to mope
Kerry donates these messages with her Love and Blessings. Kerry, and of course AU, is also available for direct spiritual guidance on life. You are never alone!!
Love and Peace from AlanC

From the seed… to the seed!

There was once a man and a woman, and from them sprung a global family..
Once upon a time all peoples in that family were together, now they are separated..
The Languages we speak were once the same, now there are many..
Along came ( ? )
The Languages can now reunite through English..
Separate peoples can now reunite through technology..
Through unity, the family love our founding parents created can be re-established and immortalised..
We all have our part to play as the ( ? ). The ( ? ) is limited only be our own contribution to society!
Blessings from AlanC.
