The Derek Acorah Award Demonstrations

After a very long and challenging two weeks, we finally chose the eight finalists for the Derek Acorah Memorial Award for 2022.

We received fifty-one nominations, which is why the selection process has been more involved than last year. The selections were made from the number of individual nominations for each person and the testimonials provided. As you can imagine, the selection process involved more than one could imagine.

The final eight nominees can be sure they have an excellent and dedicated following of loyal supporters. As already stated, we choose not to publish the names of the people who offered the names and provided testimonials. And we are pleased we made this choice, as the numbers involved would mean the task would take up literally days of work. And there is no time available!

Barrie, Liz and I wonder how far this award will go. If the take-up for the nominations grows in the same way for 2023, we will have to organise a show where more people become involved. The future looks promising as the award is only in its second year.

So to the eight mediums who will take part in this year’s award:

There is no order to the selection!

Rick Paul

Like many people involved in the spiritual world, my journey began with the feeling that intuitive feelings were more than imagination. As some of you will know, I had an essential experience as a patient in a hospital. And the experience of talking to a fellow patient one minute and seeing him pass moments later was a real moment of trust. Indeed, I realised later that this was a test and a real opening to my spiritual future.

I have worked tirelessly over the last six years to provide the most authentic expression of the gift of mediumship. And working countrywide has helped me gain the trust of hundreds of clients. I see my mediumistic work as both messenger and healer. And I look forward to the time with my audience in November. Rick

Rachael Farrow

I work for the Ambulance service full-time. Still, I love to engage with Spirit as much as possible when I’m not at work. I have an outstanding development group I meet with most weeks. I have formed a partnership from that and created spiritual connections.

I also work on psychic table nights, passing beautiful Spirit messages and attending regular sessions at my local spiritualist church.

I recently became a Paranormal investigator and found another way to connect to the spirit world. Still, I wouldn’t have done any of these things without the love and support of my mentors and the wonderful people I’ve met on my journey. I thank you all x

Dionne Linnell

Hi, I’m Dionne Linnell, a Psychic Medium, Reiki Master and Crystal Healer. I run my business, Crystal Clear Healing, full-time from my crystal shop in North Hykeham, Lincoln. 

Working for Spirit, no two days are the same! I provide:

  • 1-2-1 readings (Mediumship & Angel cards).
  • Reiki & crystal healing.
  • Psychic development training.
  • Running spiritual retreats.

I feel so blessed to be able to work for Spirit, and it is a role I take very seriously. It is an absolute privilege and joy to pass on messages from your loved ones in Spirit.

I am honoured to be part of this award…

Laurie Wilton

My journey began when I was seven and heard someone say my name. Unfortunately, I do not have a family who understands or support this belief, so over time. After many years of despair and challenging experiences, I met Stephen. The first person who ever “got me” we were married within two years and had our first child. Which made me see things entirely differently, but something was missing, so I continued visiting spiritual churches and watching mediums.

I visited a local event, a psychic evening, held by the Haunted Heritage group. And here, I met people who offered me the chance to learn about mediumship. And at 43, still, with lots to learn my life feels like it’s where it should be – wholly fulfilled. Simply listening to the universe and the whispers from the unseeable have changed my life for the better!

Yvonne Fielding

I am a natural psychic spiritual medium based in Nottinghamshire. From an early age, I have seen and heard Spirits. I would see people in Spirit and have a conversation with them. Some would call them “invisible” friends. Spirit has always been a big part of my life. Giving support and guidance from the world of Spirit, helping people to enable them to understand and help with their life decisions and helping people with closures where necessary. Spiritual experiences and talents.
I love lifting the veil that separates us to draw the two worlds together. Proving to people that we only step through another door when we pass over.
Every Spirit has a story, whether from a reading, house clearance or ghost walk/hunt. I am happy to help lift the veil and draw the two worlds together. I look forward to connecting with my audience at The Pure Spirit Show.

Carol Wallace

I have always had the “gift, ” even as a child. My first experience was while putting the money in a meter. When the electricity went out, you were in the dark with a candle or a torch. Going into the back room where the electric meter was, I bumped into “a young lady” in a 1920’s servant’s uniform.

For many years I performed platform demonstrations at small spiritual churches. Eventually, working at larger venues, such as old Trafford, with 280+ audiences! I worked at Hyde church with the amazing Gordon Higginson. And with friends such as John Harrop for charity events. I met Derek on the Northern Circuit

Although I don’t do readings at shows, I sometimes give my customers a quick advice/support message or a recently passed loved one asks me to give a message.
