Circle: A Connection to Spirit
by Rev. Barry
| Next | Contents
have worked as a Spirit medium now for over 20 years. In that
time, I have had the joy of bringing to thousands of people guidance
and messages from the Spirit side which were both concrete and
confirmational. It is a wonderful thing to stand with a foot in
both worlds and to share with people the absolute truth that we
are eternal and that there is no death. In addition to individual,
private readings, one of the ways that we share messages with
people is through the message circle.
circle is not like what you would imagine a seance to be. There
is no atmosphere of dramatics or the mysterious. It is not a show
but it is an opportunity to receive messages and guidance from
the heaven world and from loved ones in Spirit. There is no need
any more for a gypsy-like medium sitting with a group of white-knuckled
frightened sitters around a table holding hands. The message circle
has no eerie voices or physical spirit manifestations. The lights
are on and people sit comfortably in a circle in an uplifting
and serene setting. For some, the message circle will be their
introduction to spirit communication and confirmation of something
beyond this life while to others it is a way to enjoy the company
of like-minded people.
session begins with a short discussion of the nature of Spirit
and spirit communication. If people have questions about the phenomena,
they have the opportunity to ask and the medium will share his
or her understanding with those attending. With regards to the
messages, it has been my experience that Spirit knows the issues
and questions in people's minds and messages usually address them
for each person in order of importance. Participants receive approximately
a ten minute message. Messages provide guidance and insight, and
sometimes connect people to loved ones on the other side. There
are no dramatics and messages are given in a loving and gentle
manner respecting the individual's privacy and their right to
chose their own path. A message circle is not fortune-telling
and is grounded in the sincere desire to receive personal proofs
and connect to the heaven world. Although the past and future
may be discussed, messages are usually grounded in the present
providing guidance and support for the individual. Spirit does
talk about the future but in a constructive and empowering way.
you are interested in experiencing spirit communication and learning
more about Spirit-related phenomena join me for a Message Circle.
We usually conduct them the last Tuesday of each month. To give
you a better sense of the experience, we have asked some past
participants to share their thoughts on the experience.
Circle by Marie Nantes, Charlottetown
I enter the King's Wellness Center, I behold luscious green plants
circling the room, exquisite stained-glass radiating a kaleidoscope
of colours and candles burning softly casting a warm glow over
the walls. My ears are greeted by the soothing sounds of rippling
water as it cascades down a beautiful fountain in the corner whose
base is supported by a lovely angel.
atmosphere of sheer tranquility sets the tone for an experience
- receiving messages. In this heavenly environment Rev. Barry
King directs our group of six people to be seated in a circle
and relax. After a short discussion on the nature of Spirit phenomena,
he addresses each member of the group one by one. He summarizes
what is affecting each of us personally at that moment in our
lives - physically, socially and spiritually. He touches on our
family, friends, workplace and other relevant personal encounters.
As he speaks, he brings insight and understanding to what is happening
now and what we may encounter in the future. Through these messages,
we in the group are directed, advised and counselled regarding
events and people in our lives and those from the past.
this time, Rev. King asked us to confirm our understanding of
the message and invites questions. After hearing my personal message,
I have a great appreciation for why people do what they do and
why phenomena occurs as it does. I, as well as the other members
of the group, leave this tranquil setting with a deeper sense
of who we are and our journey. Left with a deep sense of peace,
we all realize that the universe is unfolding as it should.
to Spirit by Sandi Reddin, Charlottetown
summer, in a company of a few favourite friends, I participated
in a message circle offered by Rev. Barry King. I took the opportunity
to ask Rev. King about an ancestor I had become especially interested
in. I gave him only her name and asked for any thoughts or impressions
it brought to his mind. I offered to share her story, as I new
King surprised even me, although I had had several readings with
him before that night. His impressions was that "Eliza"
was a young and beautiful woman from the past, above all determined,
with hair swept up and somewhat unruly, whose first husband was
without question the love of her life. He also felt great sadness
and suggested that she had had a difficult life. He noted that
she was happy and whole on the spirit-side and that she was now
with the love of her life.
that "Eliza" was indeed a very determined young woman
who at 18 years of age participated in an elaborate plan to elope
with her first husband, a sea captain before he sailed away to
the California Gold Rush in 1849. The hair style that Rev. King
described suited the times and certainly living by the sea, the
notion of unruly hair, seems quite credible. "Eliza"
waited over a year for word from her husband. A letter finally
arrived informing her that her husband had died and that she was
now a widow. Her grief was extreme and while she eventually married
twice more, local opinion was that she never got over the loss
of her first love, the one that Rev. King saw close beside her
in the heaven world.
The Message Circle by Susan Eaton, Charlottetown
the message circle setting, messages are discrete, yet they are
also personal and relevant and are given with a positive, encouraging
interpretation. Barry and Sandi are very willing to answer questions
participants may have about specific messages or about matters
of Spirit in general.
