Pam Shield has updated her ‘Community Profile’ and as she is a ‘Community Member’ at ‘Nottingham – Trowell’ it is apt to post the article just a few days before the Show. Pam is and an extraordinary talent and is totally dedicated to LizianEvents. Seek her out over the weekend for an insightful and valid reading.
During 1995 my spiritual journey began. I had just separated from my husband of 19 years; I had two teenage children to take care of and provide for and was at a bit of a crossroads in my life. As most of us do at times like this, I went for a reading, not knowing what to expect as I’d never had one before.
I was told, “you have very strong healing power”. From that moment on all I wanted to do was use that ability to help people. The only trouble was, I wasn’t given any guidance on what to do next or how to develop it! I was just left to find my way.
I started to develop as a natural healer. I then became aware of Reiki and progressed through different levels to become a Reiki Master/Teacher. I celebrated my 19th anniversary as a Reiki Master in March 2017.
I am also a practitioner for Hopi Earcandles and Indian Head Massage.
Some years ago I also developed an interest in Astrology. I had a personal reading with Phil Bowler at the Lincoln mind, body, spirit show which just blew me away. It was amazing how accurate he was about my personality.
My birthday is in the middle of August so you would think I’d be a typical Leo but I never felt that I was. Yes, I like the luxury and quality that Leo’s enjoyed but I never wanted to be centre stage and couldn’t understand why. That was until my reading with Phil. My birth chart showed very clearly why and so many other pieces of my personality fell into place.
A few workshops with Phil plus a year’s coursework with the British Astrological and Psychic Society (BAPS) followed. Although I didn’t take the course any further (and I’ve forgotten more than I can remember!), astrology is still of interest to me and plays a part in the readings that I do.
In February 2015 I felt a strong need to develop my mediumship ability and studied at the Arthur Findlay College, Stansted (“the world’s foremost college for the advancement of spiritualism and psychic science”), along with Simon Goodfellow’s courses for psychometry and Tarot.
I have had the privilege of being tutored by some extraordinary people, and I will always be thankful for their knowledge and guidance.
I felt I wanted to develop my understanding of the Tarot further and was fortunate (although that word sounds entirely insignificant for the gratitude I have) to meet someone who has studied Tarot for over 40 years and who, amazingly, agreed to be my mentor. Wow, I cannot put into words how blessed and grateful I feel for the opportunity to continue to learn from someone with such a depth of knowledge.
I love giving readings, and it never fails to amaze me how accurate the cards are every time. They are always so relevant.
My readings are all about YOU and where you are in your life.
As for past, present and future, the past has gone, and we can do nothing about that apart from hopefully learn from it where necessary.
