Jackie at Inspirations Positive Living is delighted to welcome Billy Cook for this evening to enjoy a conversation about the Spirit World. Billy is a very well known Medium in the UK and abroad so we are delighted he will be speaking with us and sharing some of the many wonderful stories of reuniting family with messages form loved ones.
My first memory of seeing the spirit world is when I saw my mother after she passed away to spirit, one night just after my 14th birthday. I was alone in the house and she just appeared before me sitting at the table. It was so real; I asked if she would like a cup of tea. I then panicked and ran out of the house into the arms of my older sister who told me my mother had simply came back because she loved me. That has been the basis of my Mediumship since. Love is what brings the two worlds closer together.
After 20 years at sea I opened a hotel in Blackpool and also began my search for spiritual knowledge. After doing the rounds of psychics and classes and seminars I began to feel my awareness growing.
After moving to Torquay I was introduced to Paignton Spiritualist Church where a lovely old Scottish medium, Agnes Porter, was taking the service. It was there I realised the God she was talking to, was the one I had been praying to all my life. Within two weeks I was sitting in a development circle and then began the process of unfolding my natural mediumistic gifts. There then began the courses at The Arthur Findlay Spiritual College where I was lucky to study under some of the great mediums of the day. Having been inspired by such wonderful mediums all I wanted to do was serve spirit. I have now been working as a full time medium for over 25 years, travelling all over the world as an ambassador for the spirit world, taking church services, seminars and demonstrating in theatres. I have appeared many times on radio and television discussing spiritualism and Mediumship and in Denmark was in a very successful TV program called Klarsyn which showed Mediumship at its best.
One thing I have always asked my students, ‘Are you ready for the great responsibility Mediumship puts on your shoulders, as you have the ability to change peoples life’s for the better or worse?’.
For those members of the public who have seen me work know I have great fun with the spirit world but always have great respect for it. Why do I do it? Because I can think of no greater joy than reuniting people with their loved ones whom they thought dead, and giving that wonderful evidence that can prove life after death. It is a privilege to serve and be an ambassador for the spirit world.
