When medium and healer Clara Lord Whitehead sat with her friend Mrs Shaw for a photograph in the late 1930’s, she didn’t know it was going to provide the proof of survival that she worked so hard to prove every day of her life.

Neither could she have known that even after the photo was developed its impact would reverberate into the 21st century reaching a far wider audience than the small circle of friends and family she had shown it to eighty years before!

Clara was married to fellow Spiritualist medium and healer, Frank Whithead. They had five children. Three boys; Albert, Edward and Frank; and two girls, Edna and Doris – although none of them followed their parents’ spiritual work pathway.

Doris had a daughter herself in 1937, and it was this daughter, Eileen, who was to be instrumental in bringing not only the sterling work of her grandparents to public notice, but that very special photograph too.
Eileen is a committee member of Bangor Christian Spiritualist Church that meets every Thursday at 7 pm in the Quaker Meeting House, Dean Street, for a service.

“I was told by my mother that the baby in the picture is my cousin Donald, my Uncle Frank’s son, who passed to spirit at the age of two before I was born,” Eileen said.

“My grandmother was a very forceful and powerful woman.

I remember receiving healing from her when I was a child. She didn’t speak to me very much about Spiritualism, but I recall her talking to my mother particularly about Harry Edwards who she met at Colwyn Bay during his 1948 tour.”

Clara would have had a great deal to talk about with over three decades of experience to draw on.

It was in Colwyn Bay at ‘Arcadia’ that a local newspaper reported: ‘It had to be seen to be believed, that amazing scene ate Arcadia, Colwyn Bay, when on Sunday afternoon, dozens of persons were healed from their infirmities through the ministrations of Mr Harry Edwards.

Sufferers from arthritis, scarcely able to crawl to the platform, with the aid of St John Ambulance men who lent their ready aid, stood up after a few touches of Mr Edwards’ healing hands, bent their knees, lifted arms which had been powerless for years, and walked (albeit shakily) from the platform. Some descended the steps unaided. On several occasions there were bursts of applause, spontaneous and natural, throughout of place, for the atmosphere should have been that of wonder and thankfulness. The amazed looks of delight on the faces of some patients restored after suffering for twelve or more yeas, spoke eloquently of the power of healing, which can only be termed miraculous’.

Celebrating the Famous Healer Harry Edwards

The Famous Healer Harry Edwards

Article from The Spiritual New about the birthday celebrations for the famous spiritualist healer Harry Edwards Did you meet or were healed by Harry Edwards? Tell us your story.

The dark history of humankind has been illuminated by those who work to bring the light of spiritual truths into that darkness – some whose own light shines more brilliantly than most. One of those great ones is beyond doubt the healer Harry Edwards.

Born on 29th May 1893, Harry Edwards passed on the 7th December 1976 after a lifetime of dedication to others, but his light still shines in the healing work that continues…

Spritualist Healer Harry EdwardsHarry Edwards said; “In trying to ascertain the actual ways and means of spiritual healing, we enter into the realm of imponderables. So long as healings take place, it may not seem so very important for us to understand the manner of their performance, but it is suggested that no avenue of thought is closed to us, neither should we close our minds to seeking knowledge and understanding. Is it that by means of prayer there comes a link-up with God’s healing ministers in spirit who are carrying out the divine purpose of using spiritual healing as a means of awakening man’s spiritual awareness? Is it by the more purposeful Spiritualist way of establishing a close mental attunement between the healer and the spirit healing minister that the healings are more effectively given? Are they both in effect the same?”

In a comment on the Church of England Archbishops’ report on Spiritualism and survival of the spirit where it says that the Church has been too cautious in its reference to the departed… Harry Edwards remarked, “It can truly be said that the power of healing is abroad in the land, as it was in those days when Jesus healed, and the words in the New Testament should be noted “many were healed” not “all were healed”.

If the Church of England was willing to have a “measure of sight”, forget its past controversies and accept the truth that healing, whilst divine in its origin, is administered within the laws of God’s healing ministers who are just as much servants of God as are the ministers of the Church, what a different picture there would be today. The churches would become a living power in the land; they would be full, for it would be possible to demonstrate spiritual healing power. Some time ago, I offered to try to develop the healing gift with twelve Church of England ministers showing them how to meditate and seek attunement with the spirit doctors, thus becoming twelve modern disciples. The only qualification I made was that they should come for the training officially from the Church. It was not taken up.

On another occasion, a dozen or more keen Methodist parsons attended a healing session in the Sanctuary in company with Dr Leslie Weatherhead, and afterwards we had a round-table talk over tea. Several of these ministers were anxious to develop the gift of healing and I made them the same offer with the same proviso, but nothing was done. Apparently it was too much to ask that any of our recognised Christian religions should officially send their ministers to be shown how to heal the sick by a Spiritualist.”

Harry Edwards’ healing ministry extended to animals too.

As he affirmed: “Spiritual healing has opened a wider spiritual concept in another way. In recent years it has been found that sicknesses with our lesser brethren – the animal kingdom – yield to spiritual healing in the same way as we do. There are indeed a number of healers who possess a special aptitude for animal healing and most other healers can heal animals too.”

“That animals respond to spiritual healing shows that they, like us, must possess a spirit self and soul. Therefore life to them does not terminate with the earthly existence.”

We all join together to send our loving thoughts to Harry Edwards who we know loves and labours still, on the anniversary of an earthly birth that has had such a healing effect on millions.

Psychic Protection – What technique do you use?

About Psychic Protection

Article from Spiritual News

Occasionally, either through a journey in the astral or contact with people in the physical realm, it is necessary to protect or cleanse yourself psychically.

We’ve all known people who always seem to have a major crisis brewing in their lives right? What happens is that some never have learned how to maintain their own energy or draw upon natural energies to keep themselves whole and in good condition spiritually as they should.

These people continually seek out others that will allow themselves to be attached to. They use a ploy of feel sorry for me, or come to me and I will give you access to the powers of the universe or any number of other pick-up lines that can be very convincing or tug at your heart strings. Essentially, these people, while we can and do have sympathy and concern for them are psychic vampires and we need to protect ourselves.

Have you ever spent time talking with someone and afterwards felt drained and tired. Guess what? You’ve just been tapped. In the magical community, there are those who become very proficient at this skill and can attach themselves to you over great distances and maintain that attachment. The actual mechanics of it can be quite complicated to describe, so for now, just accept that it can and does happen. The same thing can happen on journeys into the astral too. If you are not focused and allow yourself to aimlessly wander in the lower levels negative entities inhabit, they can and will attach themselves to your energy centres and cause problems.

Either way, the result is that you increasingly begin to feel tired and all drug out. Your energy levels drop substantially and chaos can and will begin to occur in your life as well as the potential for growing health problems.

So how do we recognize and protect ourselves from this? Actually it’s pretty easy. First off, you need to realize that your aura and your energy are yours. No one or nothing has a right to them unless YOU give them permission to attach themselves or you open your energy centres freely.

If they attempt to attach without your permission, it IS a form of Psychic Rape and needs to be resisted strongly and without hesitation. In the astral, you simply will them away or yourself into a higher level away from these low-level entities. It works much the same way as trying to put to equal ends of magnets together. It can’t be done. If you truly want them to go away, they will.

Low-level entities in the astral will always try to attach themselves to you below the throat chakra, so this is a pretty good rule of thumb for what you may be dealing with. Higher level beings will ALWAYS offer a joining of aura and energy above the throat level. If one appears and asks or attempts to connect below the throat chakra, simply will it away or move to a higher level yourself, they cannot follow you there. The exception to this is that you’ve encountered another human travelling in the astral looking for someone to tap into. Again, your energy is your energy and no one has the right to trespass if you don’t want them to. Just say NO! And will them or yourself away. The astral is a magical place and you can make anything happen there that you will to happen with skill and practice.

The key to avoiding low-level entities in the astral is to trust your instinct and use common sense. If a contact makes you feel uncomfortable, move away and will yourself somewhere else. The purpose for astral travel is to contact guides or spiritual beings to learn and grow.

In the physical world, you can recognize psychic vampires although it is a little more difficult. People can be very clever at disguising it or they may not even realize that they are doing it. All they know is they feel bad and talking to you or spending time with you makes them feel better, so they crave being around you. You can still spend time with these people and care for their well being, just protect yourself. You can also choose to let them have a little of your energy to let them feel better, and then close off the flow. Ultimately however, it is best to not let anyone become dependent on YOUR energy so that they can feel good. It is much better to show them how to raise their own energy or draw it from mother earth and nature as we are supposed to do.

One of the simplest ways to prevent someone from tapping into your energy is to sit with your legs crossed at the ankles and then do the same with your arms or wrists or by holding your thumbs and index fingers of each hand together. This can be done very inconspicuously although you might get comments that you feel suddenly distant. What this does, is it closes your energy loop and keeps your aura and personal energy recirculation within yourself.

Contact between people should be an exchange of positive energy that makes both of you feel good about being around one another, it is a sharing of spirit and soul that benefits and energizes both of you, not just one. I bet quite a few of you are going Hmmmm, right about now… We’ve all experienced relationships like that and it can be difficult to bring them to closure especially if our hearts are involved.

In the case of an intentional psychic attack, it can be much more difficult to detect and deal with. It can happen through many avenues and if you feel or know that someone is trying to attach themselves to you. Break all contact immediately. These people, if allowed, will attach themselves to you astrally and completely drain you. They have no regard or concern about your health and well being whatsoever. They are Psychic Rapists and could care less about you and should be treated accordingly.

Actually I just kind of reverse the energy their sending back to them which makes them kick their butt in a manner of speaking. Ultimately I’m just helping them zap themselves, so my karmic slate stays clean. Sly smile…

OK, on to the meat and potatoes.

Strong visualization skills play a helpful role in this but they aren’t absolutely necessary.

True Sathya Sai Baba Story


Article by Amarjit Singh Bamrah

I am grateful for my living guru and teacher who has constantly been at my side teaching me and purifying me.  A few years ago Baba appeared to me and took me to a desert dune and said,” Amarjit you wish to merge with God?”

I said, “Yes Baba, and I want to work and help other people as well.”

He said, “Come up to me but look around you. The path to God is fraught with danger and hardship. And as I looked I saw dark energies and demons standing on the side of the path to waylay me.

I said, “Baba I still want to work for humanity.”

He then vanished and the trials and tribulations started…


A lady called Yola has given permission to tell the following story.

I received a call from a lady pilot. She needed to talk and to see me. She also flies at Biggin Hill Airport. She said she had heard of our healing temple. I told her she could come and see me at the hangar . When she came she said she had a problem with lumps in the breasts and wanted help. I asked Sai Baba’s guidance. He said, “Sit with the tree and ask the elements to help you.”

I /We told our Chief Engineer, and Shonu my son, and the staff, that we were praying with the tree and to also pray. I asked Yola to take some fruit from our hangar altar and we sat under the divine tree at the rear of our hangar and offered the fruit to the tree and the elements. We pray with the tree often during the summer months as she allows a gateway to the cosmos to be opened up to help us. (The airport has just cut the divine tree down).

The branches of the tree started waving around and started creaking in the way only a tree can speak and she welcomed us in her fold.

Then Baba said,“Amarjit start the mantras.” I sang the ‘Gayatri’ mantra. Mantra power, especially Gayatri, is phenomenal. This mantra should be carved on the doors and consciousness of us all. Within it are 70 million mantras. Chant it and see the miracles. Ask me about it. Read the book ‘Healing Mantras’ by Thomas-Ashley Farrand. He explains the power of mantras and how unbelievably easy it is to tap into the mantra God energies during our working life, using mantras to obtain enlightenment easily.

This calls in all the elements of creation, and Yola felt extreme heat being generated in her chest. Baba then gave her a mantra to help her. To date the lumps have receded and when she feels a twinge she chants the mantra “Om Sai Rama Ave Maria” for healing. The doctors have cleared her of cancer.

I sang more Gayatri to ask the elements of creation to help, and Baba stood next to us and said, “Amarjit call the winds and ask the wind to help.” I said, “Baba I do not understand what you mean.”

Baba said, “Amarjit remember the book I asked you to read ‘The Alchemist’ by Paulo Coelho – a fable about following your dream?

Merge with the elements Amarjit.

Speak to the air/merge with the air and ask it to merge with you.”

So me and Yola both spoke to the wind and asked it to merge with us.

What happened was amazing. The winds came and started shaking the tree and our hangar The winds rose more, and now on the other side of the hangar my Chief Engineer Ashley and staff were holding on to the aircraft as the winds were threatening to turn them upside down. Ashley started shouting. Tell Singh to stop praying. Tell Singh to stop praying, otherwise the hangar will blow down!”

Baba then said, ”Amarjit ask the wind to recede.”

So we asked the wind to recede and the wind receded.

Baba said, “Amarjit do some more mantras and merge with the rain.”

We called the rain and this rain cloud formed on top of the hangar and huge drops of rain as big as snow flakes started falling on the Biggin Hill Airfield. It was rain like we have never seen before – big floating rain flakes!

Then Baba said,”Amarjit ask the rain to stop. Chant some more mantras.”
We did more mantras, then Baba said, “Call the thunder and lightning.”

We did, and the lightning started falling on the hangar and the tree. It was truly spectacular.

Then Baba said, “Pray the lightning to recede and start the prayers.

Then Yola said,“Amarjit can you please ask God to help my daughter. She has extreme headaches and the hospital specialists cannot determine the problem.

So we prayed for her daughter and we saw her daughter’s soul appearing in front of us. God showed her to us taking drugs, which allowed a gateway to the dark side being opened up.

As, we looked God showed us in the middle of her third eye/forehead area an amazing sight; an inverted triangle with religious symbols inverted as well – we then saw demons using this as a gateway into her, and from her into others around her.. This inverted triangle was being used as a gateway for the dark beings to enter her daughter and use her as an opening to allow these dark beings to infect others around her.

Baba then said, “Do the mantras and ask the archangels to close this opening,” which they did (God bless the angels) and took the dark ones to their rightful place for healing. The girl has been touched by God and she is now doing fine, no more drugs, no more headaches.

Haunted Homes: Have you got a haunted house?

On Haunted Homes…

Article by Neris Harding from Spiritual News

It amuses me that some people do not believe in life after death and yet they are quick to say that a place is haunted or they have seen a ghost, which in itself is a contradiction.

Some people, when they die, do not know that they are dead and carry on doing the things that they normally do. I myself have been to many houses that are supposedly haunted. I ask the people in the house not to tell me anything as I do not want it to colour my thoughts. More often than not it is in their own minds. This does not mean that the people are making it up, they are genuinely concerned and can often hear a bump or a thud or something else that they do not have an answer for.

Anything that makes a noise or sound that they do not understand, becomes scary – particularly if, they’ve been watching a programme on tv sensationalizing ghostly goings on. But I have found that if you think logically about it and investigate it, you can normally find an earthly answer for it. I always say to people that, if it is still bothering you, go to your local Spiritualist Church (if you have one) or look up on the internet for Spiritualists or mediums, and ask if they could put you in touch with someone who can come and do ‘house clearing’. There is nothing to worry about as the medium will, if they do the job properly, just walk around your house quietly.

Some mediums will just come and sit down, probably in the room where the disturbance was heard and if they contact a spirit they do it with their mind. If a connection is made, the medium will send out a thought asking who they are. This may take several attempts before the spirit answers because you must bear in mind that the discarnate spirit is not used to people talking to them. It is they that have been trying to contact you so they are a bit taken back when all of a sudden you are contacting them instead of the other way round – that is why you hear the sounds and experience the disturbances.

Once contact has been established, the medium can then explain that they have passed over and they must go on to the spirit world where they will be looked after. The main trouble I find with such spirit people is they do not think they are dead, and they keep running away from their relatives or friends that have passed over – because they think they are ghosts. Nobody has told them that it is they who are ‘dead’ too.

Most people who die go straight to the spirit world. It is only one in a billion that will not accept they are dead. It is, I believe, home or the place where they liked when on the earth’s plane that can hold them back. It seems that sometimes they decided to return occasionally (after a very long time in spirit) and then don’t want to leave!

Personally I have never known someone in spirit to hurt anybody physically. Yes it is known that they can move things around, yes they can get frustrated, but wouldn’t you if your last memory of the earth was walking home and you did not know that you had died on the way. When you got home and found other people in it you would want to throw them out wouldn’t you? Not only that, if your family were still there and they ignored you (because they did not know you were there) you would get annoyed or be upset that you were being ignored.

As I say, this is one occurrence in a billion – normally when you leave the earth plane there is family or friends, or your spirit guides to take you on that first stage onward.
