Pennies From Heaven

Barbara Burgess, Psychic Medium

Barbara Burgess, Psychic Medium

Many years ago now, my husband and I were in dire straights financially.  

He was in business with his parents and they had both died and then the firm had gone into liquidation.  His parent's home and our home and been repossessed and we were living in a caravan that was only available for the summer months.

We eventually moved to a bungalow but times were still very tough for us.  I was constantly worrying about money and how we could manage. 

I attended the local Spiritualist church and the medium there gave me a message.  She said, 'you can ask for money, you know.'  

Wow!  I could ask for money!  I had been living from hand to mouth for what seemed years and here was a lady telling me that I could ask the spirit world for money!

I said my prayers that night and did, indeed, ask for money.

The following morning I opened the front door to fetch in the milk and low and behold in the middle of the doorstep was a small pile of coins, one penny pieces!

Well, I just knew this was the answer to my prayers.  I also knew that spirit had a sense of humour!  So, I said, thank you, but a pile of pennies was not quite what I meant.  I was thinking more on the lines of a lottery win!

So that evening I said my prayers again and asked for even more money, the jackpot, so to speak.

The next  morning I was backing my car out of the drive and on the wall, level with my eyes, was an even bigger pile of coins.  This time though it was two penny pieces!

Yes spirit really do have a sense of humour!  I have been made aware of this many times in my life!

Okay, I thought, I get it.  The spirit world was obviously not going to give me the lottery numbers.  

I had a lesson to learn here. 

When asking spirit for something you have to be specific about what you want.  If you want a car then do you want one that works well all the time and is easy to drive or do you just want some old banger that breaks down all the time.

If you want a holiday then do you mind where you have that holiday or is a tent on a muddy marsh okay?

You have to be specific with your prayer requests to spirit.

Often people will say that they just want enough money to get by on.  Or they say they just want enough money to pay their bills.  This is what turns up though.  What would be good would be more than enough money to live on so that you could give some away to others, charities, maybe.  There is nothing worse than worrying about money all the time and having more than enough can give you a good life free from many worries.

Out Of Body Experience

Barbara Burgess, Psychic Medium

Barbara Burgess, Psychic Medium

My mother rang me.  She said she had a very bad stomach and wouldn't be able to come over that day.  I asked her if she was okay and should I come over to visit her and she said she was fine but to keep away as she had sickness and diarrhoea and did not want me and my little girl to catch it.  I said that if she was sure she was okay then that was fine.

Later that day I phoned again and she said she was still the same.  Sickness, diarrhoea and had a bad stomach ache but she could cope.

The following day I phoned and she was no better and so I suggested she called the doctor.  She insisted it was just a tummy bug and that if she just drank water for twenty four hours then she would be fine.

On the third day she rang me to say that yesterday she had been in absolute agony but today she was feeling much better.  For some reason she also insisted that I stay away as it was a horrible illness and she did not want me or anyone else to catch it.

I was very worried but left it at that.

My stepfather, at this time was visiting his family and friends around Newcastle, Durham, Chester-le-Street and Sunderland and he would be away until the Saturday.

I continued to phone my mother each day and she said she was feeling rather week but much better and the neighbour had been popping round and looking after her.  

On the Saturday I phoned and said I was going to a dog show and had to pass her house on the way.  I insisted on visiting her.  She sounded okay but weak.

When I got to her house she was in her dressing gown and looked an awful grey colour to me.  I said I should phone the doctor and she said no.  I said I would stay with her as my step father was expected home later in the afternoon and I could keep her company until he arrived to look after her.  My mum insisted that she was fine, could cope, would be okay and that I should get off to the dog show.

Well, I went to the dog show but worried all that day about her and also told my doggy friends about how worried I was and how ill she looked and how she did not want any help.

On the way home from the dog show I called at my mother's house and got no answer.

Later in the evening I got a phone call from Ted, my step father, saying that my mother was seriously ill with peritonitis and was being operated on at that moment.

I later learned that my mother had been in absolute excruciating pain on the Monday and that was when her appendix had burst open.  Apparently they had burst open and then twisted back on themselves and thus stopped all the puss and muck from spreading fully around her body.  

When Ted arrived home he took one look at my mother and phoned the doctor.  The doctor took one look at my mum and called an ambulance!

The surgeon told my mum that she had died three times on the operating table and that she was, 'a very lucky woman'.

I went to the hospital every day to visit my mum and took my little three year old daughter with me.

Once, when we went into the ward there was a patient lying on her bed and she had lots of tubes all over her and one up her nose.  My little girl said to the lady, 'why have you got that thing up your nose?'  The lady replied, 'It's to make me feel better'.  Larissa then asked, 'Do you feel better with it up your nose?'  The lady said, 'yes' and laughed.

I cannot remember how long my mother was in hospital for but I am very grateful to the doctors and surgeons for saving her life.

Quite a long time after my mum had recovered she told me that she knew she had nearly died and that she had had this amazing experience whilst on the operating table.

She told me she had seen a tunnel and was halfway down that tunnel.  At the other end and behind a kind of veil were her deceased brother Fred and his wife Nancy.  Nancy had been dead a very long time but Fred had only recently passed to spirit.  They kept beckoning to her to come and they told her 'it was only a few more steps'.  My mother replied to them, 'i'm not ready yet'. They kept beckoning to her and kept telling her that all she needed to do was to take a few more steps.  My mum kept saying that she was not ready.  

Then she woke up and found herself in the hospital bed.

Have you ever had an out of body experience? I would love to hear from you.

Don't Wait

Barbara Burgess Psychic Medium

Barbara Burgess Psychic Medium

Don't wait until your 50, 60 or 70 until you get yourself fixed.

Do it now!

So often, especially when we are young, we think we are invincible.  

I see this by the way young people cross the roads in front of cars sometimes, they think it is fun.  They think the car will stop in time.  

My mother used to do this as well.  When she wanted to cross the road she would just go. She once told me that, 'the car has got to stop'.  Well it doesn't have to stop and sometimes the stopping distance and conditions are  so great that it cannot stop!

The angels can  and will look after you, but it is no good driving the wrong way down a dual carriageway and expecting the angels to look out for you.  You have got to play your part!

It is the same with our health and well-being.  

I hear people who smoke saying, 'I've only got one life and I'm going to live it.'  Well having a body riddled with sickness because of cigarette smoke inhalation is not really living.  We also have more than one life.  We are eternal and we can have and have had many lives.

Another thing that comes to mind here is that you may have an ailment and you go to the doctor and he/she says, 'what do you expect at your age?'

Well there are people living to a hundred and ten or more years these days.  There are people aged 70, 80, 90 and even 100 who run marathons!  

Whenever my father had an illness or ailment he would go to the doctor to find out what it was or to confirm what he thought it was and then he would go home and work out or find out a natural way of treating that illness.  Maybe taking more vitamin pills or eating more fruit or drinking water with freshly squeezed lemon juice in it.

Years ago doctors would tell a cancer patient, 'you have six months to live', and often that person would die six months later.  However, there are those who might have said, 'oh no I haven't' and found a cure and lived for many more years.  It all depends on the type of person you are and your personality type as well.

I recall a medium at a Spiritualist Church told the congregation the following story:

He was an airline pilot and he had travelled the world.  Often being away from home for several weeks at a time.  He had hardly seen his two sons grow up into teenage boys because of his work. He was about to retire and began to feel rather unwell, so he went to see his doctor.

His doctor diagnosed stomach cancer and told him that his condition was inoperable and that he had only six weeks to  live.  

He was absolutely devastated.  He was looking forward to retiring and spending more time with his wife and sons.  He wanted to make up for all that lost time when he had been away flying and now he had been told he only had six weeks he could spend with his wife and sons.  As you can imagine he was in shock and he simply did not know what to do next, or to whom he could turn.

So he turned to a healer friend at the Spiritualist Church and asked for healing.  The friend gave him healing but also told him to go back to the doctor and ask for an operation.

The doctor explained that the illness was totally inoperable.

The medium went back to his healer friend.  His healer friend told him to go to the hospital and sit in the waiting room and demand an operation and to tell the doctors that he was not going to leave until they did operate on him.

This he did.

He sat and waited and waited and waited and eventually the doctors agreed to an operation.

When he came round from his operation the surgeon who did the procedure on him came to his bedside for a chat.  'You are a very lucky fellow, young man.  During the operation your stomach cancer actually fell out onto the operation table and you have the all clear.'

The medium tried to explain that he had received healing before the operation but the surgeon just dismissed it went on his way.

The medium was now well into his seventies and he had had the operation about fifteen years before that.  He looked a very fit, happy and healthy man.

So, don't wait, don't leave it too late.  Don't wait until you are sick or feeling sicker before looking after your health and well-being.  

Do it now.

If you don't know where to start then ask the angels for assistance and wait for their answer.

Does This Ever Happen to You?

Barbara Burgess Psychic Medium

Barbara Burgess Psychic Medium

Does this ever happen to you?

You're out somewhere and a complete stranger says hello and begins to tell you their life story. Or they tell you their troubles.

This can mean you are an empath.

This often happens to me and I am sure it has happened to many people as well.

Recently I was at the Kings Mill Hospital, Mansfield, Nottinghamshire, seeing the consultant regarding my eyes.

My mother and her sister had glaucoma and I have to have regular checks.  My last check was only six months ago.  However, the consultant said my eyes 'were steady' and therefore my next checkup is in twelve months time - very good news indeed.  They also have told me that it is highly unlikely that I will have glaucoma, because I would have shown signs before now and because certain parts of my eyes are not conducive to being affected by glaucoma.  As mentioned - very good news indeed! 

By the way, if you are over forty then you should get your eyes checked regularly.  I think if you are over fifty then it should be every two years.  Free checks are available for anyone who has a close relative who has glaucoma.

While I was waiting for my appointment, at the hospital, a lady began to tell me her life history. She told me she had lost her father two years ago and how she was still grieving.  She also told me how one of her six brothers had taken it very badly.  

She spoke very quietly and there was music playing and other people talking and so it was quite difficult to hear what she was saying.

Then, I was rather glad to say, the consultant called out my name.

This stranger was about to tell me the critical part of her story and as I stood up from my chair she grabbed my arm and held me back.  I was desperate to get away and get my appointment over and done with as I had other committments during my day.

The lady hung onto my arm and told me that someone had found her brother hanging in his garage.  I told her how sorry I was for her loss and then went off with the consultant.

Why do people do this?

One reason is that they instinctively can tell a 'good listener'. Another reason is that they have 'their story' to tell.   Yet a further reason is to do with addictions.

People get addicted to stress and drama and trauma.

This lady had been telling this story for about two years.  She was feeding off the drama.  It is not unlike an alcoholic who, once the affects of the alcohol wear off, has to have another 'dose' of that medicine.  People who have had a shock are often showing symptoms of post traumatic stress and one of these is to be addicted to stress and drama.

I have found two excellent books to help with this difficulty and ease the pain of loss and shock:

'Don't Let Anything Dull Your Sparkle' - Doreen Virtue.


Medical Medium - Johnathan William

Also I highly recommend looking up TAT - Tapas Accupressure Technique

and EFT - Emotional Freedom Technique

It is good to listen to people and it is also good to talk to people.  However it is also good to let go of stress and drama.

Q - What is an 'empath'?

A - 'an empath is a person with the paranormal ability to perceive the mental or emotional state of another individual.'

I am an empath.

When I give readings to people I can 'tune into' their energy field and actually feel what they are feeling.  I can sense how they feel, what they are thinking, what their emotions feel like and even how sick or ill they feel.  When a client has, let's say, a painful leg, then I 'feel' their painful leg.  I can feel their headache, their upset tummy, their pregnancy.

I am an empath.

One thing I have noticed when doing readings for people is that there often are not the right words in the English language to perfectly describe how a person feels.

For example a person may feel hate and anger at the same time.  A person may feel such full-on hate or anger that it cannot be described in one word and it needs several to be used to describe it. Or, I might sense that it is a bit like this and a bit like that, all at the same time.  But not exactly like this or exactly like that.

The same with other emotions, such as sadness or grief or despair.

I have found that when a person loses an animal, say a pet dog, that their grief appears far greater than when a person loses a human being.  One word cannot describe how they feel. Grief, sadness, despair - there is not one word that describes how a person feels at the loss of a pet.

It can often be the same when a client comes to me who is worried or anxious about something.  I tune into their energy and try and find the right word to describe how they are feeling.  It can be very hard at times.  

I know how they are feeling because my own body is feeling that emotion at the same time as my client, and yet, it is very hard to put this feeling into words or into one word.

How do you describe a feeling, when someone has lost more than one of their beloved pets, and it has left them feeling suicidal?

How do you describe utter loneliness, deep desperation, or fear of the unknown, all in one word?

I love my job, but it can be very hard, being an empath, at times.

Where Poppies Grow

Barbara Burgess, Psychic Medium

Barbara Burgess, Psychic Medium

The poppy or field poppy is an annual plant.  This means it flowers each year and generally between about May to August.  It disburses its seeds in the wind and these seeds can lie dormant in the ground for a very long time. If the ground is then disturbed around  the early spring the seeds will germinate and the poppy flowers will grow.

This is what happened to the poppies and the land at Flanders.  The land was disturbed by the shells and fighting.   Then in the following warm spring the poppies grew.

Some time ago now, near me men were digging up the pavement by the side of the road in order to lay a new path that would eventually join two small villages.  Shortly after the pavements were completed beautiful poppies began to grow on the verges.  A very pretty site indeed.

The poppies I have photographed below grow at the side of a potato field.  Sometimes the field has a wheat or barley crop in it and then the whole field is full of poppies, from black, through different shades of red, to pink.

Cry Wolf

Barbara Burgess, Psychic Medium

Barbara Burgess, Psychic Medium

After reading the books by Anthony William, Medical Medium, we have chosen to drink bottled water.  Tap water is full of unpleasant things such as chlorine and fluoride.  Filtered water can have all the minerals filtered out of it and so we drink bottled water.

Recently, after shopping we were loading the car up with the bottles and I suggested to my husband, Richard to lay them down flat as they can fall over and squash the food bags.

He began pushing the large packs of bottles.

I suggested to him that pushing was not a good idea and that I was told always to pull an object and not push it.

This brought to memory a friend of mine from school.  He loved acting the clown.  He would fall about, just like Norman Wisdom and cry out as if he were in pain or in agony.  He would even writhe about on the floor sometimes and we often wondered if he were crying wolf or not.

I met him some years later, when he was in his thirties and asked how he was and he told me he had been very ill with a punctured lung.

He said that he worked in a builders yard and was pushing some very heavy planks along a shelving when he cried out in agony and fell writhing to the floor.

No-one took any notice of him until he began turning blue and then they called for an ambulance. Apparently he had pushed so hard he had ruptured one of his lungs.

He said the doctors told him never to push a heavy object but always to pull it.

He did see the funny side of what had happened and could understand why none of his work colleagues came to his aid.   He told me he had stopped 'acting the fool' now, which, in some ways,  was probably a very good idea!

Do You Love Your Car More Than You Love You?

Barbara Burgess, Psychic Medium

Barbara Burgess, Psychic Medium

When I was learning hypnotherapy we discussed what to charge our clients.

The tutor said that he was amazed at how many people were willing to spend £200 or more on their car and yet were not willing to spend the same amount on themselves.

Yes, his fee was £200 an hour and that was some time ago.  However, he did get clients.  He did find people who were willing to spend money on helping and healing themselves and their issues.

Another thing that pops to mind here and that is FEAR.  People are afraid of change.  

Oft-times people are so used to being and living a certain way that they are afraid that if they change or heal then they will not be able to cope with it.  It will seem so unusual to them.  Being stressed out and harassed all the time is the norm for these people and therefore relaxing and chilling out will seem very odd, very peculiar indeed.

There is also the fact that those around us do not want us to change sometimes.  Will we become different?  Will we get up and leave?  Will we then have fun and others not have fun?   These are the ideas and beliefs that often stop a person from reaching out for healing.

So, think about it.  Do you spend more money on cars, technology or household gadgets than you do on yourself?

Rare Water Otter

Barbara Burgess Psychic Medium

Barbara Burgess Psychic Medium

There is a garden, somewhere in Eastbourne, Sussex, that has funny and strange things in it.  The garden is open to the public.  I went there many times as a child.

Somewhere in that strange garden is a little shed and on the door to the shed is a sign - 'Rare Water Otter' - once  inside you find what is depicted in the image above.


I was chatting to my brother the other day over old memories and he reminded me of someone my father knew.  We knew this man as 'Taffy'.  He came to visit my dad on his bicycle.  He was extremely tall.  I recall that if he stood in a doorway you could only see up to his neck.  You could not see his head at all.  A very tall man indeed.

My dad worked with Taffy at Luton Airport.  They were both draughtsmen there.  Taffy was also a cartoonist.  Now that my memory has been jogged I do vaguely remember seeing some of the cartoons Taffy drew.  Maybe Taffy brought them to show my dad or maybe my dad brought some home from work.


Taffy had been asked, by his boss, to draw a sealing washer.  What Taffy drew was someone washing a ceiling.  He handed this cartoon to his boss.  I am sure his boss had just as good a sense of humour as Taffy did.  My sense of humour.
