Welcome to Penny Hayward

Mentor – Inspirer – Medium

I get a real buzz out of inspiring and mentoring others. It’s so exciting to see people open up to their potential. To become enthralled and excited with their self-discovery. Unfolding the layers of complexity each one of us has. To reveal their truth and inner beauty. Their authentic self. Allowing their Soul power and potential to shine out into this world. I now see part of my Soul’s calling in this world is, and if I look back, always has been, about empowering others.

“Education breeds confidence. Confidence breeds hope. Hope breeds peace.” Confucius

My journey towards becoming a mentor and tutor was through my personal exploration. I wanted to understand who I was, how I fitted into this world and like a lot of people, I had big questions, what’s the point, where am I going, is there more to life than ‘this’? My conclusion became – there was more to life than ‘this’ and there was more to me than I thought or imagined. Which lead to the discovery that – I am a medium – inspirer – mentor.

Through developing my psychic and mediumistic abilities I discovered more about myself than I had through anything else. It expanded my mind and lead me into Spiritualism which started to answer some of those big questions I had. It wasn’t just the exploration of these psychic and mediumistic abilities I had and putting them to the test. It was compelling me to philosophise, research, to look within as well as outside of myself. For me, the exploration of mediumship and Spiritualism has more to offer than evidence of the continuation of life beyond our physical world and understanding. It lead to healing my Soul. It brought me Peace. It leads me beyond the limitations I put on myself.

Some facts; I was born in Australia and relocated to England in 1999. I am now based in County Durham, UK, after spending many years living in ‘the South’.

I was in my early 30’s when I came to understand that I am a medium and psychic. Even after having a near-death experience at the age of 20, as well as other phenomenal experiences throughout my youth, which I always tended to brush off. Soon after I arrived in the UK, my spiritual journey really took off.

I joined the Spiritualists’ National Union as a member in 2010, and hold 3 Diploma’s (DSNU) in Mediumship, Teaching Mediumship & the Philosophy of Spiritualism, along with Assessing Mediumship. I’m continually finding ways to continue my spiritual progression and development.  In 2018 I was approved as a tutor at the prestigious Arthur Findlay College in the UK, and was appointed Course Organiser in 2022.  I have been Appointed by the SNU as an Assessor for all awards at all levels and achieved Accredited Healing Medium in 2022.  In 2023, I had my acceptance service to be an Officiant (for Spiritualist Funerals/ Namings/ Weddings).

I teach at various international organisations.  I’m working on new goals and expanding my spiritual progression through various collaborations – creative and scientific.  I’m furthering my interest in Consciousness and bringing the importance of Science and Psychical Research in Spiritualism into my endeavours.

The SPIRIT is the record keeper of the souls’ journey

The MIND is the magnet that tries to throw the compass off course.”

What will you be when your Soul grows up?…

… Magical words of inspiration which came to me.  It’s amazing how it flows just when I need it most. It wasn’t that long ago that I needed to do a spiritual service address. These words flowed through my mind and I knew they were special… What will you be when your soul grows up?… I can’t honestly remember what I said that day.  That is the magic of speaking mediumship.  It was for Barry…

There Is No Royal Road …

I LOVE this sentence. In just a few short words, there is so much meaning and depth of meaning, if you so choose to see it. I came across these words in a book first published in 1888 – Practical Occultism by J.J. Morse – 3rd edition, 1956. These few simple words speak volumes. While the context of the book is related to mediumship and spiritualism, it infers a number of things. One way to…

2020 has been a year of experimenting and pushing personal boundaries whether you like it or not – well, it has for me and I am sure others too. Without a doubt, everyone has been affected one way or another by the global pandemic and lockdowns. Still, in the true human spirit, many of us look for positives and ways to make the most out of a non-idyllic situation. I’ve had many ideas over the…
