#GuestPost by Helen Parry Jones #Author of Beyond Boundaries #Medium #Healer @rararesources @HelenTheHealer

Today Im delighted to welcome Helen Parry Jones with an intriguing guest post about her journey to becoming a medium and spiritual healer. First, here’s a little about her book Beyond Boundaries.

Beyond Boundaries – A book of true inspiration!

Helen Parry Jones shares every aspect of her life with absolute honesty and in a refreshingly down-to-earth manner. Her story is a backdrop to enable her spiritual guide Sam, through daily tutoring from her earliest recollection, to offer wisdom and enlightenment in overcoming the abundance of life’s many difficult challenges, not only for Helen, but for the countless people she meets socially and provides treatment for professionally.

Helen reveals how, with Sam’s guidance, she develops a much higher level of consciousness, not only to communicate with another dimension beyond the boundaries of our existence, but whereby she can access the energy that surrounds and connects to our physical form to locate illness and malfunctions within the body with astounding accuracy.

An extraordinary life with an exceptional gift. The story of one woman’s power to heal.

When I was four years old, after using the outside toilet at my Aunty Joan’s house, I noticed a large black-skinned man sitting on the back doorstep blocking my way into the house. I’d had previous sightings of him, but he seemed more like a shadowy figure in the background.

This was the first time I’d come face-to-face with him and experience such a physical presence. Obviously, I now know I could have walked straight through him, but he seemed as solid to me as my own body. 

At that meeting he explained he was my Guide, I could call him Sam and I was to consider him like a school teacher. It was on this occasion he first spoke about spirit people and the spirit world. In this moment of revelation I became aware I could see and communicate with dead people, which strangely didn’t frighten me … it made me very inquisitive.

Nevertheless, no matter how often I told my mother about this, she’d tell me not to be so silly, that I was imagining things. In truth, my parents scolded me throughout my childhood each time I mentioned seeing the invisible. 

What I needed and craved was having my manifestations validated, not constantly rejected.

My Nan Ada was the only person to accept I could see the invisible. I would often tell her of a big fat ginger cat and an old moggy sleeping on her sofa. She always referred to them as her Tigger and Arthur, and explained they had died long ago. It gave me a sense of peace having someone I loved believing I spoke the truth about what I could see. 

Around this time, my mother took me to our doctor to establish if I was suffering from any mental illness. I could sense my mother’s disappointment at not finding any medical reason for my invisible visitors. 

Essentially, growing up with this reality was as natural as breathing to me. For my part, it wasn’t a transition into becoming a medium, … I was born one.

Having said that, as I grew up and the amount of visitors steadily increased, it became evident I was an open portal into another dimension which I could open and close at will. The more I accessed this dimension, the more proficient I became in communicating with it and began to realise I was being exposed to a much greater consciousness of wisdom.

During one of our many tutorials together, Sam asked me to study a plain piece of paper. To my astonishment emerged the outline of a skeleton upon which ticks and crosses appeared. He explained soon I would discern illness in people by seeing crosses over parts of the body that were ill. On reflection, this was a huge responsibility for a child to undertake. 

Later in my adolescence, Sam explained the ability to link with this greater consciousness of wisdom was the means to bring healing and improved wellbeing into peoples lives. Without doubt, I felt in my heart this was my life purpose, … I had found my destiny.

Once I accepted this was my life-role, I intuitively knew the colourful auras I could see around peoples bodies revealed much information about their physical and emotional health. Not only did the colour and density of this ‘energy overcoat’ constantly change, I could see how it linked to the body by a network of energy paths and chakra points. 

The true life-challenge came when I had to face how with a basic education and gender limited opportunities imposed upon me by my parents’ working class values, how I could share my extraordinary abilities to actively benefit others. In desperation, by flicking through the leaves of the ‘Yellow Pages’, I randomly placed a pin to choose a career, … dentistry. So as a sixteen year old school leaver, I trained as a dental nurse – my first steps as a health professional.  

Over time, the crosses over peoples disorders faded, but was replaced by an ability to see right through people’s bodies as if like tissue-thin layers of an onion, whereby I began to see broken bones, diseased organs, blood disorders, hormone imbalances, all sorts really, even illness that had been, or that is current, or that is going to happen.

With marriage at nineteen, and children soon-after, my dental career was over. When the opportunity arose for a part time job at my local veterinary practice, I reached out for some independence and the chance to re-connect with promoting good health, albeit with animals. It wasn’t until the school-yard interaction with other young mums did my extraordinary abilities find a willing audience.

However, after I divorced and found my soulmate Richard did I finally overcome the inner shackles that had restrained me from speaking out confidently about who and what I am. With his earthly love and Sam’s metaphysical presence, I changed from a naïve young woman into one of a strong character who understands her own self-worth and life purpose. 

… … And thereafter, my reputation spread by word-of-mouth recommendations into a demanding full time profession and the international standing I enjoy today.

Princess Of The Light

Gabriel, the Archangel and Messenger of God – yeah, that Gabriel – visits Mary Miller. He tells her, as the key, she is destined to spread the Light and vanquish the Darkness. Her first assignment is to restore the soul of the Walking Man. Sounds simple enough — until she’s thrown into the face of evil. And then, Joe Deacons enters her heart. This battle just got a lot more complicated. She must complete her mission without losing all she loves.

During a visitation by the Angel Gabriel, Mary Miller learns she has been chosen by God to spread the Light and banish darkness and evil, to which end she is given special powers. Her first task is to restore the soul of André, a homeless man, known as the Walking Man. The darkness inside and surrounding André is the demon Than and his sidekick, Lisbeth.

Mary meets Joseph Deacons, who is told by Gabriel he is also one of the chosen and has an undertaking to fulfil. They fall immediately in love and declare themselves soul mates. I wasn’t convinced by Joe (too much blushing and unrealistic dialogue for a man), or the relationship between him and Mary, if I’m honest. There was no discernible depth to them. 

Whoa, I couldn’t help but think. I frankly felt like a moth to the flame. All I wanted to do was have a reason to get close to her. The fact that her eyes seemed to shine with an actual light didn’t help matters. I had never felt such an automatic attraction before, and I wanted to lean closer and see what was going on with her eyes.

I felt the characters in general were one-dimensional and needed a lot more realism and development. I couldn’t get invested in them at all. André was the only one with any back story, showing how he came to be in his present situation, but the solving of his problems was too quick and glossed over. If I had to pick a particular character it would be Than. He was the most realistic and interesting. I didn’t foresee the twist at the end.

The light versus dark, angels versus demons theme had promise and so much potential. The basic elements were all there but the plot was lacking. There’s not an awful lot happening until the last quarter of the book, apart from a couple of standoffs with Than and Lisbeth that were over too quickly and easily.

The plot is confusing at times in relation to times and events and I do feel good editing and/or a proof reader would have improved this book immeasurably.

Falling ~ Angels Among Us (The Complete Series)

A note from Linn Halton…

As soon as I’d written, ‘The End’ to the third novella in my Harper Impulse series:

Angels Among Us

(FallingForbidden and Forever)

I knew it wasn’t quite the end. Well, I suppose that was obvious as I’d already come up with two endings for Forever. But that’s the way it is when you are writing a story. It has a life all of its own, but readers don’t always get to see that, as a book can only have one ending. However …

In this series, which is a mixture of research and fiction, with an over-riding love story to add as many complications as you can possibly want, the ideas were limitless.

But the ending has to do the story justice and Forever ends with a scene that needed an explanation. Whether or not you’ve read the three novellas, there’s a surprise waiting for you in Falling: The Complete Angels Among Us series.

What happened after ‘The End?’ Well, in the combined series edition that’s exactly what the reader will find out. Releasing on 9 October 2014 in ebook format and 17 December 2014 in paperback, by Harper Impulse, it’s available to pre-order on Amazon now.

My review

AngelsAmongUsCeri thinks she sees angels … everywhere. She struggles to keep separate what feels like two very different sides to her life. As a manager in an advertising company she’s been working with the gorgeous Alex for two years. The have a friendship based upon the image she portrays whilst she’s at work and it helps to keep her sane. One mad, crazy night spent sharing their secrets and a lot of wine result in them ending up in bed together and their relationship changes. When Alex explains that the reason he doesn’t date is because someone broke his heart, how can Ceri admit that she feels a deep connection to him?

Ceri is on a journey of self discovery, and learning what her gift for helping people and sensing the presence of angels, mainly by intuition, really means. She knows she is different but she doesn’t realise her gift is her calling and she is destined to be alone. She and Alex are only meant to cross paths briefly, he to help her when she is in doubt, and then to both go their separate ways. Neither of them understand Ceri is not supposed to fall in love during this earthly existence…

Ceri’s task is to correct mistakes people make that may alter the course of their destined lives. It was easy to like and  empathise with her, and Alex, especially when I read the passages from his point of view. They both suffer dreadfully because they are not destined to be together. Ceri is compassionate, astute and very confused about her feelings for Alex. As she begins to learn who and what she is and awakens more and more to her psychic abilities, the spiritual and theological aspects are explored in-depth and are very interesting and fascinating. The story focuses quite heavily on this perspective as Ceri learns her true calling.

I have no idea exactly when I began seeing angels, but I can’t seem to remember a time when I couldn’t. It feels like it’s always been a part of my life. It’s as natural as breathing and, yes, there are times when I wish that wasn’t the case. I seriously doubt anyone would choose to get drawn into something they don’t really understand. Why would they?

There is much development in Ceri and Alex’s relationship, as well as Ceri’s personal development, and as the two clash emotions run very high. Ceri must choose her path and either way, it’s not easy as she struggles with the powerful feelings between her and Alex. Should she heed what she now knows is her destiny, or choose to follow her heart? 

Linn Halton’s writing style is fluid and easy to read, I was drawn in from the start. The story is filled with a multitude of emotions, highs and lows, and although the spiritual angle features throughout it’s not overwhelming and blends in well with the romance. There’s a lot to like and be drawn into in this book if you’re open to the otherworldly and metaphysical. I enjoyed exploring the premise there is more to this life than we think, and more beyond than is imaginable.

After initial misgivings (I’m not really into romantic fiction but this is more than a straight romance) I enjoyed reading this book a lot and give it a solid  four-stars rating. The paranormal/spiritual aspect made it for me. Many thanks to J B Johnson at Brook Cottage Books for sending me an ecopy.

About the author

LinnBHaltonLinn B Halton lives in the small village of Lydbrook, Gloucestershire in the UK, but was born in Bristol. She resides there with her husband and cat with ‘catitude’- Mr Tiggs.

Linn began writing in March 2009 and her debut novel was published in February 2011. In a recent interview Linn was asked about genres:

“From a very young age I knew romantic fiction was always going to be my genre. I am, and will always be, madly in love with love! Whether that’s love of life, a partner, or the things I’m passionate about.

My stories are about love, life and real relationships – but romance is always the one thing that holds each story together. Often there’s a light, psychic touch and I never dreamed I would write drawing upon my personal psychic experiences. But as my interest and understanding has grown in the subject, it is now such a part of my life it finds its way into my fictional tales. However, what is heartening is that most of my experiences have been uplifting and it’s wonderful to know loved ones are around me always. I hope it will make readers stop and wonder ‘What if?’

The result is that I get a lot of mail from readers who have had similar experiences and some are sharing theirs for the first time with me. I always feel that’s something rather special and for which I’m very grateful.”

Love, life and beyond… but it’s ALWAYS about the romance!
