The following interview is with Pamela Young, author of Hope Street, the true story of a family with a spiritual gift, Pamela has travelled here and overseas to visit many mysterious sacred sites. In the show she talks about "The Voice", which she has heard since being a small child, “The Voice” always spoke about the times we appear to be living in now, with the many disasters and such like. “The Voice” always spoke about "The Work", which was somehow connected to the idea of reincarnation. Pamela now realises what “The Voice” was telling her and what “The Work” actually is. Listen to the interview using the audio player above.
Interview hosted by Mark Chatterton. Tonight I would like to welcome to the show, Pamela Young, from Horwich in Lancashire. Pamela has just had her first book published called “Hope Street”. Pamela comes from a family of Spiritualists and the book tells her life story about growing up in this Lancashire town, as well as about her mother’s unique spiritual gift as a trance medium. As you would expect in any family, there’s plenty of ups and downs, with one or two skeletons in the cupboard. Yet through all the adversity comes triumph as they say. So a big welcome to you, Pamela….
This is the first book you have written, can you tell us about how you came to write this book.
The title of the book, “Hope Street” refers to the street in which you were born and raised in the Lancashire town of Horwich, near Bolton. Can you tell us a little of what your childhood was like?
There is a lot in the book about your family’s connection with the Spiritualist Church in Horwich. On occasions a highly evolved spirit would speak through your mother called “The Voice”. What was important about what he said and as a young girl attending these meetings, were you ever scared at all?
You mention a
message that your mother was given about a concept called “The Work” in your book. Can you tell us what “The Work” is?
You tell us about marrying at the age of seventeen and then moving down south, only for your marriage to break up and having to get by with two young children. You went through what some people would call the dark night of the soul, where you describe undergoing something like a near death experience. Can you explain to the listeners what this was like and how it changed you?
Horwich is situated on the western edge of the Pennine Hills, with a place called Rivington Pike situated next to the town. This hill seems to feature a lot in your book. I read with interest that you all went up there for the Harmonic Convergence in August 1987. What is it about Rivington that you find so special?
You tell us about a visit to America in 1996, where you visited several Native American spiritual sites. What made this visit so special for you?
You mention in Hope Street that you have a connection with Gorton Priory in Manchester. Can you tell us a little about this place?
Hope Street by Pamela Young is published by Coronet Books and is available from 20th January.
