On my spiritual journey, I’ve learned a lot from many people, often online, but sometimes face to face as well. Pamela Goodall, or Pam as she prefers to answer to, is one of the most spiritual people I have ever had the privilege to meet. Based in Plymouth, Devon, Pam runs a regular spiritual development circle and various workshops. She’s the author of four books and hosts the Ki Changes website and Facebook Page.
I met Pam several years ago, through Brunswick Spiritualist Church in Plymouth, and whenever I’m in the UK, I attend her development circle. I’ve learned a lot from her, but perhaps the most important things she’s helped me with is understanding the concepts of forgiveness and gratitude, each of which are essential components of a spiritual life, and each of which can seem deceptively simple at first glance.
True forgiveness is not just a matter of accepting an apology, or deciding to move on without one. It’s about realising that forgiveness is, more than anything, a gift to ourselves. Forgiving someone doesn’t mean we condone the actions of others, it’s a choice we make to accept that we can’t change what’s happened and so we need to distance ourselves, and we can only do that when we truly forgive. Pam likens forgiveness to removing layers from an onion; just as you think you’ve finished, something else surfaces that needs to be dealt with, but each layer takes you closer to the sacred act of true forgiveness.
At the basis of this, and all spiritual activity, is love, and Pam insists that we can send love to anyone; we don’t have to actually love them, or even like them, but unless we can send love, we can’t truly forgive and move on. She advocates visualising pink clouds of love, just like candy floss, to those we need to forgive, and that led myself and my friend Glenys to turn up to circle one day with a bucket of pink candy floss for Pam! We all had a good laugh about that, because Pam has a great sense of fun, which makes it easy to absorb her teachings.
Pam’s a great communicator, and like the best communicators, she’s also a good listener. That comes in very useful for spiritual counselling, and for receiving channelings from Angels and other spiritual beings, including the Arcturians, who originate from a different galaxy. Like Pam herself, the channelings are all about light and love, and she’s written three volumes of channelings, as well as a spiritual memoir, Drawn to the Light, published in July 2023. Look out for Volume Two, coming soon.
Drawn to the Light is deceptively easy to read, yet it contains some hard-hitting messages and lessons which are all the more powerful due to the gentle, understated style of Pam’s writing. As you’d expect, love and forgiveness are major themes, as is gratitude. Without giving too much away, I can tell you Pam has a pretty unique take on how gratitude figures in her own life, and she uses personal examples to explain why we should be thankful even to those who have hurt us the most, because that’s where our most valuable life lessons can be learned.
Pamela Goodall practices what she preaches by living a life filled with love, forgiveness and gratitude, and she’s an example and an inspiration to everyone she meets. Like me, she came late to working with Spirit, although she’s had many psychic experiences over the years. Check out her website and her books and you will soon realise why I count the Queen of the Candy Floss among my most loved and respected mentors, teachers and friends.
