For the many that came with joy of Spirit there were probably twofold that were sceptic or disbelievers who came for the thought of possibly being on TV next year and for the interim bar session. Don't get me wrong it takes all sorts to make an audience, but for something so profound and joyous of Spirit, one would hope that the disbelievers especially, would not even bother paying for a ticket and then turning up with all that negative energy!
Sally started the second half of the show with a reading that reached one person, but on the mention of a fire in the shed where this particular person's family bike had been stolen, no further connection could be made. Sally closed that reading, but then something stranger happened, the lights came up and a fire alarm sounded. The whole of the Brentwood Centre had to be evacuated and although the fire service were called to a smoking dishwasher and gave the all clear, we were not allowed back into the auditorium.
A bit of an anti-climax to what was supposed to be a highlight for me as I pursue my Spiritual path within a Development Circle. Sally has a gift that on a one-to-one and probably with a smaller audience is second to none, but given the size of the audience (1200) and the negativity I personally felt, which manifested itself outside, when people were moved on to the car park, I felt Spirit might just have had a hand in deciding that the evening should come to a close!
Make of it what you will. xx
