When I met my first medium I had absolutely no idea what I was going to do with my life. I was restless with no real objective. I worked in construction and took care of the things I had to be responsible for. Some could say I led quite a mundane life, but I was fairly happy, but I did not really have any idea as to my actual identity. I did not even know what kind of intelligence I had, I did not think about it. I just went about my life doing what was necessary, but after seeing a medium for the first time it was as if my inner world exploded. I had suddenly found something I could feel passionate about. It was exciting, interesting. Nothing had ever hit me like that before. That was when my journey began.
I had been sitting in a medium development circle for a time. I began to realize that I had a certain potential for mediumistic things. One night the medium did not turn up, the president of the spiritual church asked me to go up and take charge of the evening, I accepted the challenge. I was scared, but it worked. I became interested in psychology and also started exploring that, another new door opened. I worked as a residential social worker for a number of years. The opportunities became fast and furious. The strange thing was, I never looked for them, I just seemed to be in the right place at the right time. New doors were opening all the time offering new challenges and opportunities in the field of psychology. That was a challenging time for me. I was afraid whether or not I could meet the challenges of this new kind of work and the demands that went with it.
“Throughout those dark days I refused to become the victim and decided to turn it into something positive.
When I was in doubt or afraid, I would sit quietly, I did not want my decisions to be ego based. Then I would hear a whisper: “Do it, do it.” I would answer: “Will it be okay?” and I would just hear the words: “Just do it, trust.” Even my time of sickness proved to be a great challenge, and some of you may think: How can this be created? Throughout those dark days I refused to become the victim and decided to turn it into something positive. In hindsight, when I look back at those days, what a creative period that proved to be in my life. I believe now that that was the true beginning of learning the meaning of emotional intelligence.
I remember the time in my house in London when the lady from Iceland phoned me and invited me to come and work for her. First reaction was panic, then I just sat quietly again, waiting for a special feeling to come and when that sense of calm came I realized that it was time to accept another opportunity and take a risk. That was the beginning of me working as a professional medium.
With each risk I have taken I have always heard these words whispered: “The help will come.” There is never the perfect time to accept new opportunities and challenges. What if I had given myself the excuse: I am not ready yet, I need more time or perhaps I will do it next year? What would my life be like today?
“I did not realize the kind of intelligence I have could be so creative.
When I look back to that 22-year old I am astounded at the things I am doing today. My inner world is a much bigger place than what it was all those years ago. I did not realize the kind of intelligence I have could be so creative. Yes, there have been times when I momentarily have had a thousand excuses as to why it was not the right time to do something, but doubts and fears are also necessary, because without them we cannot find the middle road, the road of truth. That road has enabled me to meet my potential and understand what intelligence is needed to become truly creative. That is why my company is called Creative Experiences Terry Evans AB.
So, I thank Ascala and his team for helping me realizing who I really am. I thank them for giving me support and courage, for the compassion they have shown when I have made a mistake and the words they have whispered: “Mistakes are part of the learning process, so pick yourself up and get going again. We are walking by your side.”
The greatest gift they have given me is the privilege to use me as a channel so that the word of spirit can be spread to the world.
