Profile: Alan Seymour

About This Author

Alan Seymour was born in Northolt, West London and was educated at Walford Secondary Modern School. He was always inquisitive and often asked ‘awkward’ questions during Religious Education lessons and at Sunday school where he was taught according to the doctrines of the Church of England. He moved to Croydon in 1973, and about ten years later, was introduced to a Spiritual healer and trance medium by a work colleague. Alan became more and more interested in healing and mediumship after receiving some wonderful evidence of life after death and decided to attend Croydon Spiritualist Church out of curiosity. It is often said by many who visit the church for the first time that they feel they have ‘come home’ and this is due to the lovely atmosphere in the church and the warm welcome from the stewards and members. After a couple of years, Alan accepted an invitation to become a member of the Church Development Circle during which he gradually learned about Spiritual healing, mediumship and the philosophy of Spiritualism based on the Seven Principles. Alan was invited to stand for election to the church committee in 1994 and eventually became the Vice President of the church in 1997 under the President, Mollie McManus. Another important influence on Alan’s spiritual progress was Pat Deverell who passed to Spirit in 2008 having given much encouragement to Alan to enhance his mediumship and trance ability. Alan met his wife Pat in 2001 after she started attending the church following the passing of her first husband. By then Alan was working regularly on the church platform as a medium and was often inspired to pass on messages to Pat from her husband in Spirit. They married in 2005 and now work together on the committee of the church and as mediums and healers. With encouragement from his wife Pat, Mollie McManus and Pat Deverell, Alan progressed as a trance medium and began giving trance demonstrations in public in 2001. With encouragement from other church members he collated all the transcripts of the trance communications over nearly twenty five years and the result is this book, A Wonderful Spiritual Journey.
