Speaking of her gift, Karen says
“Growing up, I always felt ‘different’. I didn’t know why or how I was different but I recall a ‘knowing’ that there was much more to this life than I thought there was. I knew by the age of 7 that there were people who lived in the spirit world, and that although we couldn’t see them they were definitely there.
This was confirmed by numerous experiences I had, for example, seeing a man in my grandmother’s house, although nobody else saw him, I could see him clearly sitting on the end of the bed in her spare room. When I told my grandmother, Elizabeth (fathers’ mother), who I was very close to, she said ‘yes you always bring the spirit world with you’.
It wasn’t until I was a teenager I understood what she meant and I was much more aware of the visitors from the spirit world I would pick up on. I also learned that my grandmother herself was very mediumistic, reading the tea leaves for people and constantly talking of the spirit world.
My mother, Catherine, who is now in spirit, was also interested in the subject and I recall reading her Doris Stokes (who was a famous medium) books when I was 10. So as I grew up, it seemed very natural to me. Then in my late 20’s, after years of watching mediums and having my own experiences, I was able to develop my abilities. And once I realised I could develop, I just felt as if I had come home. I knew it was a part of me that couldn’t be denied, and that it was always supposed to be what I was doing as my life’s mission.
As an adult, I was able to pursue my work, with the support of my husband, Jason, and our children, Lewis, Rachyl and Jayden. All three of our children can see spirit and have done since they were small. They’re not at all worried about it as they understand it’s all a natural part of life. Also, my father Hugh, is a great support, and you will often see him at my events as he is my event manager!
My message has always been, that eternal life is the true message of the spirit. The evidence of spirit is to bring healing and comfort and a knowledge that life is eternal and that we will see our loved ones again”.
