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.

Symbolic messages.

People often say to me why do spirit send symbols instead of just saying ‘ hi, my names.......and I lived at.....I’ve come to say.........’ Well, sometimes they can communicate this way, but mainly to mediums who are Clairknowing (clairaudient, sentient and voyant) To those who are not that lucky, a spirit person has to communicate the best way that they can.
They do it by pulling up your own memories and using them. For instance, if I am speaking to a man in the armed forces, I'll get sent a still picture of my son, who was in the army. This is known as a symbolic image. They will also use the image of my own mother, to let me know they are a mother.

Spirit people will use whatever is stored in your head to get their poinbt across. So I always say watch every program you can, read every book you can lay your hands on. Even if you have no interest in them. I half watched a program on world war one the other day. The next night while I was giving messages from the podium, images from that program began to flood my mind and I realised I had a spirit person from world war one with me.

There are so many symbols used. It is down to the medium to decipher them and perhaps now, you may understand why they don't always get it right. My advice to any medium is, if you don’t understand a symbol ask the spirit person to send you another. Don’t waste time deliberating over them. Work with your guide. TALK to them. TELL them how you want to work. I now ask my guides not to bring in symbols. Show me pictures or images of a memory, but not darn symbols. They are just too complicated sometimes.

A medium needs to direct their guides as to how they want to work. If you are clairaudient and you can’t hear the spirit person speaking, ask your guide to move them closer. If you can’t see them, ask your guide to make them clearer. If you tell them what you want, they WILL make it happen.

It's a lot of hard work to do my job, but then so is any job really. You just have to persevere. I'd love to hear how other mediums work.
