Spirit World on Mental Health

This post is part 1 of 2 – I shall share Monty’s talk on “Emotions” at a future time… But regarding this talk on mental health, listening to it, even I thought that this talk made me think differently about the suffering that many people are currently going through! I think the explanation given certainly is one major factor for people.

I hope that you enjoy it and please share with anyone that you think will benefit from these recordings – their purpose is to help and assist.


The World Only Exists Within You

During a recent gathering of The Blue Circle in Coventry, UK, we had a rare experience whereby Monty came at the very start of our gathering and he stayed with us for the duration of our meeting.

Normally we would welcome Anthony first, the little boy who communicates survival evidence and trance clairvoyance, however, on this occasion, Monty and his friends felt it necceasary to lift our spirits by reminding us about the nature of life and reality… I’m sure it was all done in an effort to help us not to take life too serious. You can hear that audio in the video below. I hope you enjoy it.

Into the love, Into the light

At a recent private meeting, the guide gave thanks to all of those people who do the work of the spirit – specifically those who had shown great courage and bravery in putting their heads above the parapet and speaking their truth against other people’s adverse reactions.

He then explained how those who cross to his world by their own hand DO NOT reside in some far off realm that is separate, but in fact they are all found within his world as they come into the love and into the light… Enjoy this recent exert!

The Zwanenhof

Following a now much talked about documentary on the subject of #survivingdeath – now seems a very good time to re-share my account and experiences at the Zwanenhof – the college featured throughout episode 2 and 3 of the new #Netflix docu-series.

In 2018 I spent a week there, I attended 2 sèances with Nicole de Haas (one private and one for students who attend the college), I observed trance twice, I gave 2 private trance sittings of my own as well as a presentation for the students about the Monarchy and their mediums which was really well received.

**** my original report below ****

The Zwanenhof
Europe’s leading centre for Mediumship Studies – by Warren James – www.trancemedium.wordpress.com

On Saturday 21 April I departed from Birmingham International Airport on route to Amsterdam and for the next 6 days I shall do what I have never felt at all inspired to do – I shall embark upon a mediumship course.

Now, I must stress that I have no issues with such courses, but the idea of spending just short of £1000 at the Arthur Findlay College or the Zwanenhof has never appealed to me – especially when my own evidential trance mediumship has been unfolding perfectly well outside of view within the privacy of my own home circle for many years now.

Experiencing some of the “accredited tutors” over the years has rarely filled me with an ounce of confidence – from their teachings I’ve always been of the opinion that development alone, in a closed and harmonious circle, out of the sight of critical eyes and under the full supervision of the spirit people is “THE WAY”.

So why the change?

In October 2017 I was invited by the highly respected trance and physical medium, Stewart Alexander, to demonstrate at his own seminar in North Yorkshire, England. Stewart has become a friend and one that I would call a mentor during my own development. He has always been my first point of call for advice and never has he failed to respond and offer help where possible. He has followed my unfoldment with interest down the years and for this reason I agreed to give that demonstration – with a feeling of nerves inside me.

But a brief moment that changed everything for me happened on the Sunday of his seminar when another young medium came to me and thanked me for my demonstration. I trusted that she meant what she said because she herself was an AFC accredited demonstrator and tutor by the name of Nicole de Haas and it was her first time demonstrating clairvoyance at Stewart’s gathering. Nicole’s demonstration so accurate that is below me away and her sincerity shone through.

After the seminar, Nicole and I remained in contact and I discovered that she was a trance medium and that she had developed a very good standard of physical mediumship and that materialised people where now walking within her own séance room.

We also realised that there where more things in common with each other than we first considered – many of the commonalities related directly to the interaction between the spirit people themselves who work with us.

My own spirit team began showing up in Nicole’s circle in Holland and reporting to my home circle all that they saw taking place there whilst her own spirit people began reciprocating this.

I sensed a greater purpose and made the decision to take the step and attend the Zwanenhof.


I arrived at Amsterdam and was collected by a private vehicle arranged for me by the Zwanenhof team and I was greeted with true kindness by my driver as well the Zwanenhof staff who are unbelievably courteous beyond what I expected.

Meeting with my friend and course leader Nicole – she showed me around the college and we had lunch together.

My room was basic and contained everything that you truly need – bed, wardrobe, bathroom, desk, towels etc.

Following this I enjoyed meeting Nicole’s circle members and later that evening they all very kindly sat for my development.

After this – and a few drinks at the bar – we retired to bed and awaited Sunday, the official start date of the course.

Sunday afternoon I met the tutors, Libby Clarke from the UK and the Awakened Mind Coach, Suzanne Temple, whilst I myself participated as a guest speaker during the week (upon Nicole’s invitation to do so).

The Sunday afternoon was an opportunity for students to meet the tutors and to get to know each other. Following this we had the pleasure of hearing a lecture by Awakened Mind Coach Suzanne – she showed us many slides and images surrounding her research into the brain wave patterns of the more than 100 trance and physical mediums that she has studied.

It is without question that her presentation will have inspired people to considered how trance is taught and how people look at their own development.


Suzanne’s own talk was an extended version of a similar presentation that she gave on the Facebook group – Sacred Dance with Trance – a few months back when she was interviewed for the group, I would urge you to seek out the 2 part video within the group or on You Tube.

Monday to Friday morning: Breakfast was served between 8am and 9pm – following this was a 30 minutes period to relax before meditation.

Meditation was daily between 9:30am and 9:55am and each day at 10am we commenced with a different lecture by one of our experienced tutors.

Monday’s lecture was by Suzanne, Tuesday by Nicole, Wednesday by Libby and Thursday by myself during which I presented, with pictures, my “Monarchs & Their Mediums” talk.

Nicole’s lecture discussed healing and touched upon those historic mediums that healed in the trance state and whose guides could materialise, such as Alec Harris.

Libby’s lecture was concerning trance healing, an area that she is very passionate about and is a fine demonstrator of.

During this talk she explained about the healing nature of the tiny sub atomic particles known as Neutrinos and the healing knowledge passed to her by the spirit people which explained how they worked with them – information that was given and delivered in a very evidential way when she visited Switzerland.


Between 11:30am – 13:00 and 14:30 – 16:00 all students would enjoy workshops with the tutors.

With Libby, these workshops involved helping people to breakdown their psychological barriers, a major factor for developing medium out there. It was about understanding what we know and have learnt about the connection with the spirit people who choose to work with us. We looked at inspiration and understanding this so often over looked area of our minds. She also allowed time for us all to sit and learn to feel the spirit world, regardless of your stage of development, to try to feel the closeness via inspiration, to cross the bridge of the mind, to meet half way with these people who choose to develop us.

During Nicole’s classes we enjoyed many similar aspects, however, the focus was upon the sitting within circle, the development of circles, the development of trance and the progression towards physical mediumship.

As a Physical medium herself, Nicole certainly spoke from experience.


During each evening we were treated by our tutors to demonstrations by them and their own spirit people.

Libby Clarke: gave a remarkable demonstration of Trance Healing whereby Dr James, her principle healer, entranced Libby and proceeded to move and animate her around the patients. He would take their pulse whilst advising them of what medication they were currently taking (to incredible accuracy), he would then endeavour to administer his own treatment, to assist further.

I must say, ever the cynical person that I am, I was VERY impressed and within this limited space I cannot do DR JAMES justice, but he is truly a wonderful person to have met and I hope that our paths will cross again one day.

Nicole de Haas: invited students to attend an experimental séance on a separate evening.

I must stress here, I was given full control of the séance room during the day… I aided the set up, I arranged chairs, helped placing seating labels, positioned the cabinet, moved the mediums chair and was generally there at all times. I searched all of the male sitters and I was one of the few present when one lady became over emotional and expressed her desire not to sit during this demonstration of physical mediumship. So I cannot emphasise how involved I was – and this is important – many physical mediums of the past are slandered and accused and many of these are concerning the layout and preparation of the séance room itself.

I WAS THERE and I played that part – I am 200% certain that all was above board and correct.

Once all people where checked and seated, Nicole was strapped to her chair tightly at the wrists and ankles whilst the last fragments of day light where removed from the room and we sat in total darkness and opened with a short invocation.

After some joyful singing we were joined by Tommy, speaking to us through the entranced Nicole.

He commenced by offering a message to “the lady who decided to not sit with them tonight” – how on earth did Tommy know that? The message included specific details relevant to her and we duly noted them and transmitted them afterwards – to a very delighted lady who confirmed that all was entirely accurate. A lady who had flown from Australia to Holland, who had decided at the last moment to not attend and yet was still touched by the spirit world.

What followed was beyond question a most moving moment.

Tommy highlighted a father and daughter in the room – which was correct – both had travelled there from New Mexico, USA. He advised that they lost a young daughter / sister called Paige – CORRECT! “Well, in a moment she will try and walk from the cabinet and to touch you” Tommy advised… The room was charged with emotions by this point!

Music was played gently and during the moments the father spoke out that he was being touched by the hands of a little child – his daughter – and that he could feel her on his head, that he was being hugged and embraced.

Ever the skeptic, for a brief moment I wondered, is it possible that Nicole had left the cabinet?

My heart knew she hadn’t, but the brain is an evil machine at times. But in that moment, with the physical experiences happening between father and daughters just 4 feet to my right, out of the cabinet, loud and clear, Tommy spoke through Nicole and continued to speak to the two American visitors, who by which time where overcome with emotions.

FANTASTIC PROOF that the medium was exactly where she is supposed to be, that the materialised form was genuine and independent and that my heart was correct (and my brain was a cynical old goat).

Libby Clarke, sat in a separate cabinet during the event and was being used to aid the power, but during this next period an attempt was made to bring Neutrinos into the room and to send them into the world for healing purposes.

The room became colder, noticeably colder… like during the materialisation attempt… icey coldness

Libby’s guides gave information regarding the purpose of the healing and this was executed splendidly!

Afterwards, I saw Nicole and Libby, we sat for a time in a private room and I observed the noticeable exhaustion and drainage of the two ladies.

Nicole shared with me how she was not fully unconscious and was quite aware as the materialisation attempt of the little girl commenced – that she felt as if her intestines had been pulled from her body and stretched out across the room. At that moment a spirit person appeared at her side and took her down and out of conscious awareness.

If this is what happens then can you blame such mediums for keeping out of the public gaze?

I hope that the Zwanenhof realise and appreciate what they have. Even the AFC have never truly developed a resident physical medium and have done little to support it of late. I truly hope that the Zwanenhof cherish what they have developing under their roof – the jewel in the crown of mediumship!!!


Midweek there was a demonstration of mediumship within the chapel at the Zwanenhof – this was open to the public and it was very much a full house.

Nicole, Libby and Suzanne demonstrated clairvoyance to a remarkable degree of accuracy and I’m not just saying that – it was PROFOUNDLY accurate – and many people present shared laughter, joy and the occasional tear – for myself it was a pleasure to chair and play MC to such an event and I will cherish it always.

After such a fun packed and wonderful week it is true to say that all good things must eventually come to an end – and that happened on Friday afternoon with a beautiful closing ceremony during which we all lit a candle and gave thanks for the wonderful experience before going our separate ways.

It was emotional – touching and truly AMAZING

To my good friends Nicole and Suzanne – and to my new friend Libby – the work that you do is truly wonderful and what you gave of yourselves, physically and emotionally, is even more so!

My thanks to you all!

SURVIVING DEATH: My Final Conclusion – by Warren James.

SURVIVING DEATH – My Final Conclusion. By Warren James. www.trancemedium.wordpress.com

What are your views on the new NetFlix Documentary – Surviving Death? What is your over all view and what are your criticisms and best parts??

Well, my overall view is below having now seen the complete documentary that I waited 3 years for!

By enlarge I thought it was a magnificent documentary, the research into Near Death Experiences (E1) and Past Lives (E6) was so emotionally compelling and life changing that one could not be in any doubt whatsoever of the reality of such cases.

However, in contrast, episode 2 & 3, I believe has done mediumship no good at all.

There was no life changing or compelling evidence that ignited the same level of magnificence as parts 1 and 6.

I’ve met Leslie Kean a few times and I’ve even interviewed her for Sacred Dance with Trance. I read Surviving Death having been presented with my copy at her UK launch and I know how passionate she is on the data collected.

But, where was all the data from the book? The data showing what happens to a medium’s brains when working… a brief mention and nothing more?

Suzanne Tempel in Holland has studied the Brain of hundreds of mediums to understand the patterns and conscious states, however, in this series she is credited as a circle member, a sitter  and non of her work presented? A complaint that she has raised publicly and refers to as “MISREPRESENTATION”

Much data is lost or forfeited for material satisfaction.

Frankly, the wonders of mediumship detailed in the book does not make it to the screen.

I think trance & physical mediumship, and to some degree the clairvoyance, was, in common with previous attempts to present factually on the subject, shown in a very boring light. I wasn’t gripped in the slightest.

In fact, had I never heard of mediumship or spiritualism, but then saw this, I would have had no desire to investigate it further having watched part 2 & 3.

Physical mediumship isn’t portrayed well at all (as usual) where was the physical mediumship? Of course, it’s in the dark, exactly where it has to be in order to develop it, but a few seconds of strenuous audio from one man saying what he can feel upon his head doesn’t exactly set the world on fire when physical mediumship is supposed to be seen by all, witnessed by all, felt by all, etc.

As for trance mediumship, see my previous comments on the Blue Circle facebook page, but it fairs no better.

Episodes 2 & 3 are largely boring with nothing of the “ground breaking” data that I expected and hoped for during this last 3 year wait for the docu-series.

Having read SURVIVING DEATH by Leslie Kean a few years ago (which was magnificent) I believe it should have stayed in book form.

In contrast, the NDE’s and the PAST LIFE cases where truly and undeniably magnificent within the documentary and as someone who has been largely uninterested in such cases over the years, SUDDENLY, I was awoken to the true standard of data available and I was entirely moved, especially towards the end with the two boys experiences.

But the mediumship cases where dull and lifeless by any comparison and certainly not ground breaking at all….

I would much rather have seen 2 more episodes on NDE’s or Past Lives.

Mediumship, including trance, has once again failed to be propelled forward but instead simply falls back into controversy and criticism – it would seem that is where it’s destined to remain. www.trancemedium.wordpress.com

New NETFLIX Docu-series


Happy New Year – I hope that I find you well and healthy.

More than ever many of us are asking what their purpose is? Well a few words to inspire your first steps into 2021

A transcript below of the spirit communicator Monty, speaking in The Blue Circle, UK. www.trancemedium.wordpress.com the subject is entitled:


As you travel through your life how many times have you questioned your purpose for being? What is my purpose in life? What is my purpose within this world? Many will often ask other people or even the sky as they look upwards in desperation.

When times are in struggle, when you are at an all time low, it is so often then that WHAT IS MY PURPOSE? is asked. But – when one is riding the crest of the wave, then seldom does one ever ask the question.

It is when the crest of the wave rides high and when all is going according to your own self invented plan of illusory perfection that the question is ever so rarely asked.

However, when you reached those “self perceived, equally illusory lows” within your lives, it was then my friends that you were truly experiencing a “spiritual awakening”.

It is through those so-called lows that your transformation of self – the spiritual self, your true self, your etheric, your energetic self, became aware of it’s purpose and evolved a little more.

If only you could see you as I see you, then you would cease to self diagnose your pupose in life by nothing other than your achievements alone or by your all time highs.

Seeing you as I see you, then I know that you would embrace your lows as equals and of such vast importance. For it was those self perceived, self certified and self rejected lows that projected you forward for those magnificent highs to ever manifest at all.

Wisdom would learn to appreciate and embrace the two states, for the two truly go hand-in-hand.

Like a canvas painting, the light strokes are just as important as the dark strokes. The light and the shade is the true portrait of life itself in all of it’s beauty – and so it is with your own lives – with every life.

There is no one set purpose in life… your purpose differs throughout the many years and even then it continues unbroken into my world.

Your lives are forever changing and evolving whilst your purpose rises and falls upon the wave into many different categories or facets. Throughout life there are so many different expressions of what your purpose truly is – just like that great painting!

At the point of physical death from your world, when that last stroke is painted upon the great canvas of Earth, then you will step back and you shall see that there are so many different shades and so many different strokes that made up the purposes of your life and each of then are equal.

Montague (Monty) – regular communicator from the spirit world within The Blue Circle. 2016


Prophetic trance communication from Monty in 2015 – was 2020 written long ago?

An unbelievably prophetic trance communication from Monty, in our circle five years ago (2015)!

Have the events of 2020 been known all along? TRANSCRIPT BELOW… You decide: http://www.trancemedium.wordpress.com


“Your world now sits on a very very narrow blade and you are capable of falling one way or the other.

Collectively you are being forced downwards in your mental state. People in your world fail to realise that your thoughts are very much projections of reality in the making. It is no shock that those who live a life of positivity shall in fact live a life of positivity and that those who live a life of negativity shall manifest before them negativity throughout their life. The obstacles that are thrown within your life are merely the testing blocks for those very thought states when they arise.

Mankind himself, at highest echelons, knows this! They know that by the manipulation of your minds and your thoughts they can control the outcome to be whatever they so desire.

Right now your world sits on a knife edge with two directions available – one of love and of compassion and another direction, one of hate, mass control and missery. Which way will the world will go? That’s the question one will ask and of course you may look to our world for the answer – but you need only look within yourselves to know that the world will go wherever mankind’s materialism wants it to go.

The wealth of your world will decide which direction you are going. Right now you are watching in your world as your own leaders who profess to protect you, who profess to work for you in fact do the very opposite. They are not looking to protect you but they are looking to protect that which stimulates and controls “them”.

You live in a world that sits on a brink and right now what you’re witnessing will, if all goes as it is planned, move the chess piece a little further on in the game.

You are in a position where the leaders of your world whom you claim work for you, in fact, would like to bring about far more sinister motives.

I am able to tell you that within your lifetime you will soon see major powers coming into conflicts yet again, mass house arrest and mass injections – all to “save you”.

All of this can in fact be changed now by your thoughts and creating a new future.

Now mankind as a species sits and says “well that is not possible, that’s impossible and if it was as simple as that why is it not so?”, but then I will reply that you know nothing of the true power of your own mind, you know nothing of the true power of the collective consciousness.

You have not discovered consciousness itself or how it works for you do not have the words nor the tools by which to locate it and measure it. There is no coincidence that your world faces an impending stage of negativity blasted upon you on a daily bases. That’s the truth.

Your minds collectively are held down and your minds can be lifted collectively, lifting you out of this impending global problem. You have allowed your minds to become unpowerful, you have allowed yourselves to be controlled, to be manipulated.

I ask that you all raise your thoughts out to those who are implementing such negativity, to those who allow it to breed within them like a virus.

Go for those who are causing this darkness, eminate love in their direction for they are causing it, they are the source and they require it more than anyone!

It is love that is required to go to those people in your world. I wish to inform you that I am not here to depress you, in fact, far from it, I am here to empower you all, to bring and remind you of love from my world, to bring you encouragement – but you understand that the truth sometimes is a very bitter pill to swallow, so often people would rather bury their head in the sand, look away and say that all I describe is not so, that I have no part to play, that I did not cause it – but – it is the burying of ones head in the sand that denies you “the truth”.

The truth is that we can all change that which is taking place and from our world we can make our part valid by trying to communicate to you all “the truth”!”
