David Drew dis­cov­ered not just a mys­te­ri­ous fam­ily se­cret but the psy­chic des­tiny that awaited him too

Spirit and Destiny - - Editor’s Letter -

The mys­te­ri­ous fam­ily se­cret that guided psy­chic medium David Drew to his life's work con­nect­ing with spirit

‘Pass­ing on mes­sages is my

life’s work’

It was a cold night in Novem­ber and my older brother Tim, and I were fast asleep in bed. At least I had been, un­til he rolled over tak­ing the blan­ket with him. I reached out and yanked it back.

Our mum Joan, 40, was on a night shift scrub­bing floors at the lo­cal hospi­tal. She’d had to work all hours since our dad Arthur, 42, died from a heart at­tack two years ear­lier when we were just eight and six.

Rub­bing my freez­ing cold feet to­gether, I wrig­gled fur­ther down un­der the blan­ket.

Sud­denly a gust of wind swept across the bed and the room was lit up by a sil­very glow. I blinked. At the foot of the bed stood a woman with pierc­ing blue eyes and white blonde hair. She looked about 20 years old.

Tim was out cold and snor­ing be­side me, obliv­i­ous to it all.

‘I’m Pa­tri­cia – your sis­ter,’ she whis­pered. I shook my head. ‘No. My sis­ters are called He­len and An­nette. They’re asleep next door.’

The woman smiled know­ingly, then the room fell into dark­ness and she van­ished.

Think­ing I must be dream­ing, I hud­dled down and went back to sleep.

A se­cret re­vealed

The next morn­ing, I told Mum all about my vis­i­tor, Pa­tri­cia. I don’t know what I ex­pected her to say, but I didn’t ex­pect the colour to drain from her face and for her to burst into tears.

Shocked, Tim ush­ered me out of the house. Nei­ther of us had seen Mum this up­set be­fore, not even when Dad died. I felt ter­ri­ble and couldn’t un­der­stand why she'd re­acted that way.

When we got home from school, Mum said she had some­thing to tell us.

‘Twenty-one years ago, my first child was still­born. We had a small nam­ing cer­e­mony then held a fu­neral ser­vice.’

She took a deep breath and car­ried on: ‘We chris­tened her Pa­tri­cia.’

My heart leapt. The woman was telling the truth! We had a sis­ter we never knew about and she’d come to visit me!

But Mum re­fused to talk about it again.

Dis­cov­er­ing my gift

Ev­ery night I won­dered if Pa­tri­cia would ap­pear but she didn’t. Then one day, four years later, Mum said there was a woman I should meet.

She took me to the house of an old lady called Nelly Woolly and told me she was pres­i­dent of the lo­cal Spiritualist church. I didn’t know what she was talk­ing about, but Nelly ex­plained she could see peo­ple no one else could, just like me. ‘It’s a gift, I can help you,’ she said.

Sud­denly, I felt a cold wind blow through the room and very briefly it was bathed in a sil­very light, just like the night I’d met Pa­tri­cia. I was con­vinced it was my sis­ter send­ing me a sign that she ap­proved.

From then on, I vis­ited Nelly ev­ery night af­ter school and she in­vited me to at­tend her séances to prac­tice con­nect­ing with Spirit.

When I was 14, I ner­vously held my first ses­sion at Nelly’s Spiritualist church. As I passed on mes­sages from Spirit, I felt that fa­mil­iar cold wind around me and saw the shim­mer­ing light. My sis­ter had come to sup­port me! My nerves dis­ap­peared and from that day I didn’t look back – my ca­reer as a psy­chic medium was launched.

Now, at the age of 62, I’ve done read­ings and spir­i­tual heal­ing for peo­ple all over the world in­clud­ing sev­eral celebri­ties.

Pass­ing on spirit mes­sages has been my life’s work and I know Pa­tri­cia has been with me ev­ery step of the way. I shall be for­ever grate­ful to her for lead­ing me to my call­ing.
