At the age of ten the author had her first OBE, a journey to the beautiful world beyond death. Later when seriously ill she experienced a miraculous light bringing her healing, which set her on a path to find out the truth about these happenings. This book traces her development from an unquestioning working-class Catholic girl in a small Yorkshire coal-mining village to a woman hungry for knowledge. Her clairvoyant and clairaudient abilities developed naturally as she became aware of her 'dead' grandmother and her main guide Little Raven. With the appearance of her 'cradle to grave' protector she was to have many more amazing OBEs. A regular meeting with a group of friends turned into a physical mediumship circle and physical phenomena began to occur. Over the 20 years of working with the spirit world there have been many changes but the work is still ongoing and expanding. This is the story of that journey, told in the hope of encouraging others to try and 'embrace the spirit'.
