Newsletter – September 2017

Paul Fenton-Smith at Mind Body Spirit

Talks in Sydney this month.

I’m giving two new talks in September based on the new edition of my book A Secret Door to the Universe. The first, Moving from darkness into light examines some of the symptoms of a life lived in darkness and offers strategies for replenishing personal reserves of spiritual light. Thursday Sept. 7th at 6:45 pm. at Heavenly Energies in Willoughby.

The second talk explores psychic energy cords and how to manage these cords we have to others. I’ll give a cord-tracing demonstration with a volunteer where I clairvoyantly trace a few cords and describe the people connected to those cords. This 10:30 am talk in the bright courtyard at the back of Bookoccino café and bookstore in Avalon offers a relaxed, around the table talk and discussion. Thursday Sept. 28th at 10:30 am.


Want to improve your decision making skills?

My 3 Sundays Tarot course in October includes demonstrations (bring some questions), tips on wording questions for increased accuracy and practice sessions to build personal confidence when for reading for others.

It’s a fun beginner’s course and offers a supportive place to discover the Tarot. It includes handouts and my book The Tarot Revealed.


Guided meditations for spiritual development – workshop.

This three-hour Sunday workshop actually includes six short, guided meditations as we’ll cover each of three meditations twice. This offers students a good chance to fully grasp each meditation.

The meditations include

Meeting the spiritually evolved part of yourself is a powerful way to access guidance from a part of yourself that is well placed to help you on your spiritual path in life.

There will be a short discussion after each meditation where I can answer any questions arising from the process. I’ll also give a psychic cord tracing demonstration with a volunteer. During this process I’ll reveal some of the psychic energy cords connected to the volunteer and describe the people at the other ends of those cords.

This workshop is based on my book A Secret Door to the Universe – a guide to spiritual development.

This workshop was first held earlier this year and students loved it. It’s best suited to people who have basic meditation experience for best results. The next workshop will be held later in the year at a date to be confirmed.


New Edition of A Secret Door

After 12 years of judiciously guarding my only copy of my book A Secret Door to the Universe I’ve produced a new, revised edition in paperback. This book charts some of my spiritual journey in London and in the Greek islands in the 1990’s.

Since it was first published I’ve returned to it when life felt bleak and I needed to remember my deeper purpose. Surprisingly, several clients who have copies did exactly the same thing. Unprompted, they discovered that reading it offered spiritual nourishment during difficult times. This might explain why more than 30 people have told me that they lent copies to friends and never saw the book again.

One client mentioned me that she borrowed a copy from her local library and when she couldn’t buy it in shops; she paid a fine rather than return the book. Hearing these stories made me put my solitary copy out of sight for safekeeping.

Reading it carefully throughout the editing process inspired me to change the direction of the advanced intuition book I’m currently working on. Instead of writing about innovative predictive techniques, I’m moving the new book towards methods for moving out of darkness into the light.

The original edition of A Secret Door had a raw honesty about it that I’ve kept in the new version. Although it doesn’t always paint a positive picture of me, striving towards the light after a lifetime of living in the dark is a process fraught with poor decisions, fear and frustration.

I’ll be giving several public talks based on this book, beginning with Heavenly Energies book store in Willoughby at 7:00 pm on Thursday September the 7th. Tel: 02) 9969 9415.  Click here to read more about this book.



Talk – Managing your psychic cords to others.

Invisible energy cords bind us to people we care about. They can also link us to parts of ourselves we have left behind in life due to shock or trauma. More importantly, they can tie us to former partners or friends whom we no longer want to be connected to.

Sometimes it’s necessary to cut these cords to people we choose to be disassociate from. In this talk Paul offers a range of methods for cutting simple and more established psychic cords. Existing psychic cords are why we recognise soul mates when we meet them again this lifetime. These cords already exist due to past life connections.

Demonstrating how cords work with volunteers from the audience, Paul traces some cords and describes the person at the end of each energy cord. These may be friends, family members, current or former partners. In some demonstrations, Paul has described past work colleagues who secretly desired a volunteer and in doing so, formed strong cords to that individual.

Sometimes the person being described isn’t instantly recognised and volunteers often approach me after talks to say that they have remembered the person I described to them during a demonstration.

This talk is important for anyone who feels drained by a particular person or uncentred by life circumstances and wants to get back on their path in life. Paul is a lively speaker and his demonstrations are interesting and fun.

Date:  Thursday September the 28th, 2017  Time: 10:30 am – 12:00 pm.  Venue: Bookoccino Café and bookstore – 37a Old Barrenjoey Road, Avalon Beach NSW.  Fee:  $10. including a tea or coffee.  Details: Tel.  9973 1244


A window into your world

Some days I really love my job. On a recent rainy weekday, my first session was a Skype video reading with a client in Canada. When Judith asked me what the weather was like in Sydney I was able to turn the iPad around to film the back garden and the park over my fence.

“Lemons,” she said as the lemon tree came into view. She explained that the last of the snow was disappearing where she lived and I could only imagine the daily temperatures.

Yesterday my first client was based in Florida, the next person was in Northern Australia and my last client for the day was in the Greek islands. I really wanted to ask her to take me outside and down to the beach but as she was paying for the session, I resisted the urge. The Greek islands are my favourite holiday destination and one of my books was set on the island of Poros in 1991.

A few weeks ago a client asked me to tilt the camera down so that she could see the cards on my table. A tarot novice, she wanted to see how I was retrieving the information about her life. I held a few cards up to the camera to explain the significance of different aspects of the images so that it was partly a lesson as well as a reading.

Recently an overseas client was experiencing some issues with the video part of the call. I suggested that we revert to a voice only call (with a tap of her screen) but she insisted that we keep the video.

“I want to know that it’s you. Seeing you on screen reminds me of when I was in Sydney having a reading in your office years ago. It’s comforting.”

At clients’ request, I’ve begun offering private tarot and palmistry lessons via Skype, coaching sessions for budding writers (including homework that is emailed to me) and mentoring for clients in private practice as psychics. In each session, I’m cosy and warm, sipping tea and avoiding Sydney traffic. It’s nice to arrive at work without any idea of what a crowded carriage on the Sydney rail network feels like.


Correspondence course update.

 For students using my correspondence course to learn the tarot at home, it now includes 30 minutes of email time or up to ten emails with each course so that if they stumble or find anything confusing, they can contact me directly for assistance.

When students are encouraged early on it gives them more confidence to practice and more persistence in learning to read the cards. It’s also an opportunity to iron out any bad habits early on.

I’ll soon offer three versions of the distance course with variants of

I’ve even begun to put students in touch with other students interstate and locally so that they can practice telephone or Skype readings. I often remind students that doing is learning. Nothing replaces experience for strengthening skills and building confidence.



Predictions for 2017

If you missed my interview on the Today show simply click on the image and it will take you to the interview on the Channel Nine website. It looks to me as though we are in for an interesting year in international politics. When I glanced over my notes before the interview they read like fiction.



TarotPrivate lessons

From creative writing to the psychic scanning of animals, there has been an increase in students wanting private lessons this year. It may be that more people want to learn tarot reading, palmistry or intuitive development but don’t have several Sundays to devote to study. It’s also possible that individuals are becoming increasingly time poor these days, fitting private lessons in when they can.

Writing students often prefer private lessons to be able to focus in-depth on a work in progress. Sometimes a good story idea needs careful polishing before it shines. Writers also benefit from a second pair of eyes looking at their work and asking questions that readers might be asking when it’s published.

These lessons have given me a chance to try out a few new techniques and to design a range of charts, writing exercises and forms for students to use. For psychic development students, these charts can help them to improve the focus their readings. I’ll use some of these forms in the advanced Intuition book I’m currently writing.

Like the advanced tarot book (Tarot Masterclass), I’m surprised at the direction I’m pursuing with the new Intuition book. The first half of this book is concerned with systems to improve accuracy and focus readings. It includes specific forms to help readers

The second part of the book will be more focussed on spiritual nourishment; the underlying purpose for psychic development, without which predictions seem hollow. This section will offer tools to reveal what might best nourish readers emotionally and spiritually throughout life.

In the rush to have a comfortable life or provide for a family, we risk forgetting that in 100 years we will be gone, taking with us only what we learned on our journeys through life. Writing this book is as much a reminder to myself as I hope it will be for readers.
