What we do

Connections With Spirit is owned by Margaret West, a lady of many talents. You can find her website here At Connections with spirit, we offer you training in many different practitioner courses and also many other metaphysical studies. The workshops are designed to not only enlighten you, but also to financially help those she considers are voiceless, with profits from the workshops. Margaret works full time as an alternative Therapist, and this she considers is her income to pay the bills. Profit from the workshops, after paying the facilitators etc, is donated. The prices for our workshops are reasonable and competitive, and we like to think that we give each one our personal touch of beauty and laughter. Cake is always on offer at lunchtimes, as we feel no one should learn without a good slice of cake to fortify them!! We use a few facilitators, who are excellent in their field, but mainly Margaret does all the teaching. So you can be assured that the quality of our courses are always top notch.We also have stalls at the workshops where you can buy beautiful jewellery and Holistic Crystal pendants, which Margaret makes herself. Each pendant is an active crystal that will help with various conditions of the mind, body and spirit.Emma King is Connections with spirit's event manager, events organiser and Personal Assistant to Margaret West. She will be your main port of call for any questions you have or booking details that you may need for any workshops or development circles. Please do add Emma Reiki King and Margaret West to your facebook/twitter friends list to keep up to date with all the workshops and news. We promise not to bother you unless you contact us first for information. Emma's email is connectionswithspiritworkshops(at)hotmail(dot)comWe like to be interactive with students and people, so do feel free to leave any feedback about circles or workshops you have attended. Or just pop by and say hello or ask a question. We will always try to reply promptly.

You and the spirit world.

A few people have come to me the past few weeks scared and confused because they can see, hear, feel a spirit person around them. First of all, congratulations. Why do I say that? Because you can do something that takes some people years of training to do. You have a wonderful gift. You can communicate with the other side of life. So how does this work? Firstly. Spirit people do not see you as a person. They see you as light, because we are all made up from vibrational energy. Your light shines the brightest when you are asleep and the spirit people are drawn to it like moths to a flame. The Alpha state of consciousness is when you are in between sleep and wakefulness. This is the time when the spirit world and physical world can connect. Spiritual dreams happen, we speak to our loved ones and of course, we get visitations.
How to stop this? As I find it amazing, I don’t know why you want to. But rationally I understand that it can be a frightening experience to those who have no understanding of the spirit world. I find a smokey quartz, cleansed and placed beside the bed mostly stops spirit visitations. Time has no meaning in spirit, so when they come and poke you hello, it can be four in the morning to you and very unpleasant. Smokey quartz grounds your energy and stops you floating off to connect with spirit in your sleep.
Understanding the spirit world will make it less frightening for you. So read all you can about it. A famous quote is “There is nothing to be scared of except fear itself.” A very true fact.


  1. very informative it can be very scary when you start working with spirit.there is not much information for new fledgelings.

  2. It is so sad when people want to have their gift switched off instead of embracing it. Now that my gift is waking up more each day I would be lost without it. Patricia

  3. i just lost my mom i need to connect.please help me.
