As some of you already know, the Academy of Excellence is a world-wide Teaching Spiritual Organisation that holds no Association to Religion, the Occult, Esoteric or New Age practices.
Our ethos is working with Spiritual Philosophy and this gives us all the ability to view “ the meaning of life” and our own lives from a “higher perspective” it gives way to a deeper understanding that we are all a part of a vast spiritual family.
It is safe to say that we are all Spiritual Beings having an Earthly experience. In other words, we are all God’s Human flowers, that have been conceived through universal Love and Consciousness.
We are all very colourful, unique, individualized,complexed and each have their own perfume which resonates energy, color and vibration which can be compared to “our universal fingerprint” We could say that we are one vast Brotherhood, Sisterhood who were created all equal.
If we look at the Earth as the garden of Eden. God, the great spirit, through his/her love for us all, has carefully planted us within his/her bountiful Garden to live a life that is so carefully designed to allow us all to experience, grow and most importantly to cultivate our “spiritual self and gifts”
Being a spiritual being first means that we are all spiritually gifted and that is important for everyone to know that fact. (remember, we are all equal) However, the gift/s are buried deep within the consciousness of The Soul.
Let us try to extend our thinking and understanding with the idea that we “co-exist within two worlds. The spirit world & the Earthly world. Therefore, we live our life in duality, so with this knowledge points us towards “us all” being much more than an intellectual being in a physical body!
We are all composite beings, that means we are all made up with multiple bodies. This analogy can be more understood by looking at what we refer to as the Aura. I do believe that many people in today's society would have heard the term Aura.
The Academy of Excellence is there to help everyone! Remember, there are no quick fixes! One has to work very hard into becoming the person you want to become! We can help you if you are ready to create change within your life!
The Academy teaches Client Centred Mediumship through our seven step Model which is unique and the first of its Kind in Sweden.
As part of our structure, The Academy of Excellence offers a wide range of Education Courses, Training/Coaching weekends and most importantly Development within all aspects of Mediumship.
We work with Mental Mediumship, Physical Mediumship, Spiritual Contact Healing & Philosophy. It is most important for the Academy of Excellence to be recognised as being a Professional Spiritual School because we have been working very hard towards “merging” Science, Therapy & spirituality into the Therapeutic world of Complementary Therapy.
Some of you may have already seen a previous Blog I put out regarding a register for Accredited Spiritualist Mediums, Spiritual Healers, Teachers etc.I must say that it provoked a lot of both positive and negative reactions, to which I am happy about!
The positive was, everyone agreed that there should be some form of accountability and the only way this could be done was to have some kind of regulation such as a Register. However, it then prompted me to take a little time to respond to some of the “negative” Responses.
The biggest revelation was to read about people who felt the following:
1. Not worthy or not believing in themselves.
2. I am a mediumistic but I have so much trauma in the back to be able to work with it.
3. Some expressed that they were not “spiritual”
4. Many didn’t believe that we are all spiritually gifted.
5. Some have been on “medium weekends” but had negative experiences.
6. Many believed that attending a Tarot Card weekend was mediumship.
7. The majority said they found it difficult to find a good Teacher.
8. One or two said, why do we need to educate ourselves if the gift is natural?
9. Three people said that I didn’t know that I could develop my gift to a professional level.
10. Many said I would like to develop but don’t know where to go?
This was quite something for me to read & hear and i must say that it touched me deeply and it made me sad to think and recognise that there are so many people who are in this mind set. It seems that my previous Blog has been a catalyst in creating a reaction in bringing forth something that affects each individual on the many levels in which and how we are all functioning.
So, I would like to bring you all a basic understanding and meaning into the purpose of life!
I will start right at the very beginning by pointing out our basic spiritual gifts/tools.
To be continued…………………..
Firstly, may we extend a very warm welcome to you.
Jeff Jones & The Academy of Excellence prides itself on Experience, Quality, and most importantly high standards of Professionalism.
The Academy of Excellence are leading pioneers and we are the first Spiritual/Medium School in Sweden to work with Therapy, Complementary therapy Psychology, Psychology into Mediumship. We specialise by using Professional Consultancy wherever necessary to empower and educate all Medium/Healing students. This allows us to treat and have a complete Holistic approach into being client Centred. Therefore, we are unique within this field and we also recognise the importance of the Professional Medium/Consultants work.
It is therefore, most important, that we, as a professional Body make ourselves noticeably clear that we have no Association to the Occult, Esoteric or New Age Practices.
Our Register is available to anyone who is searching for a Qualified, Educated Medium, or Spiritual Healer who can facilitate communication or Spiritual Contact Healing between the two worlds. The Academy of Excellence recognises that the work of Professional Mediums can and do have a very deep and profound effect upon some of their Clients (Particularly) the sick, bereaved, and the most vulnerable. Therefore, we hold full responsibility regarding our Code of Conduct along with working within an Ethical Framework.
We have learned from experience that One Session with a professional Medium/Consultant can and do change people’s lives and we hold proof of this statement.
Jeff Jones has been working in Germany & Sweden with Psychiatrists, Doctors, Health Practitioners for the purpose of merging Mediumship, Healing & Therapy.
The one thing that has truly come out from the cooperation from all professional Bodies, is that Mediumship & Spiritual Healing has its place and therore, both aspects should be recognised as a Complementary Therapy.
The other matter that we all agree upon, was the understanding that we are not just a Physical Intellectual Being! We are a composite being which means we are much more complex than Science understands. We are firstly, Spiritual Beings having an Earthly Experience and with all this in mind our work is focused on being Client Centred and therefore we can treat the Client as a whole.
The Academy of Excellence have been working extremely hard over many years and will continue to do so in the hope to move Mediumship, Spiritual Contact Healing into its rightful place and that is the Therapeutic World.
Of course, there is still a mountain to climb! For all governments, Science, Healthcare Practitioners, Doctors etc, to begin to take Mediums, Healers and the subject more seriously, we have to eradicate the considerable amount of miss-understanding and even more importantly to get rid of the Hocus Pocus that seems to keep Mediumship, Spiritual Healing in the dark.
The Academy also recognises that, to work alongside Healthcare Practitioners and other Professional Bodies, we too, must become Professional.
The Academy of Excellence prides itself on high standards and professionalism and all who are on our register i.e. Certified Mediums, Healers, Teachers have studied and have been trained to a high standard.
The philosophy behind the Academy of Excellence in creating such a register for Approved Spiritual Healers and Accredited Spiritualist Mediums, is that Jeff Jones believes that Mediumship and Spiritual Healing has its place within the therapeutic World.
The whole spiritual movement needs regulation along with Mediums, Spiritual Healers being accountable!
Therefore, having such a register is the first of its kind and it is just the beginning upon the road to professionalism. Creating such an idea as a professional Medium Register, I guess, it will leave a bad taste in the mouths of many! However, we do hope that it will attract only the serious Medium/Practitioner to join us.
Jeff Jones has many years of experience working around the world as a Spiritual Consultant/Medium, Healer. During his travels Jeff Jones has had the pleasure of working & cooperating with Psychologists, Psychiatrists, Medical Doctors, Counsellors etc. From the complete experience of having worked with other professions bodies, there seemed to be recognition from all who took part, that a “Professional Medium’s” work was likened to a “Bereavement Counsellor” another termed that was used was “Psychospiritual” and I had agree with them all and the Academy of Excellence will continue the good fight!
What this does is, it brings confidence amongst some Medical Practitioners, Health Care Professionals etc. It opens a doorway of opportunity, whereby having a complete Holistic Approach through the understanding that we are something more than an Intellectual Being. Within the Philosophy of embracing the fact that we are a “Composite Being” means we then begin to have an “overview” of the completeness of the client. With this new insight we create a Bridge into working Client Centred and treat the client within an ethical Spiritual Framework.
It also allows Mediums, Healers along with other Professional Bodies to sit around a table and discuss in which way we can provide safe practices in crossing the divide where Spirituality meets Medicine. Working and co-operating together can only enhance the Client’s Recovery. Let us not forget that Mediumship, Healing is still very much frowned upon even within today’s Society and it is very unregulated.
What is most concerning about this is, Mediumship is deemed to be some form of entertainment and this is something that I totally object to!
We can say that Hypnotherapy and General Counselling are widely used within the therapeutic world and are accepted. Therefore, why is it that Mediumship and Spiritual Contact Healing does not receive the same level of recognition?
It is not until such time that we raise the standards within Mediumship, Spiritual Healing that progress can be made, in which time we can go to all heads of Government and present Mediumship and Healing as a form of Therapy. Once all the above has been considered, we must then look at the wider Spiritual Scene, Mediums, Healers etc. and the level of practice they are operating within.
The biggest challenge is to:
1) Remove genuine Mediumship, Spiritual Healing away from the Occult, Esoteric and New Age Practice.
2) To offer anyone who is looking to develop their Spiritual Gifts a serious foundation along with an Academic Study of Education that can compare to an equivalent of a School or College Education.
3) That the student becomes Qualified to a recognised standard and this can only be achieved through a commitment to study, Training and Development. All Education Models must be achieved to progress to the next level and this can only be achieved through regular Assessments.
All the above is where the Academy is focused, and we know that The Academy of Excellence gives a very Professional Service to all its students and customers alike.

Jeff Jones & The Academy of Excellence
Within the Material self, we live life in our thoughts and we live life as our experience of the present moment.
To be able to experience physical life, we all need a physical body which contains a physical brain which is somewhat limited within its expression, therefore, we must try to grasp an understanding of our completeness.
Within the “Soul Self” the soul is housed within a physical vehicle called a physical body which is dense within its make-up and structure.
Therefore, Freedom can only come through our awareness and understanding that we are something far greater than just a physical Intellectual being, in REALITY we are all composite beings!
The only way to begin and awaken your innate power (The God Light/force) is through allowing your Physical mind/Intelligence (lower mind) to rest and this will give way to your higher mind (The Soul mind/Intelligence)
It all begins with our thought process. Learning to talk with God/The supreme Spirit which is the Divine spark that lies deep within all of our Spiritual DNA.. It is the first step into cultivating a link to your higher mind/self, (the God light)
With your intention to serve, you learn to direct your attention and mind towards the light, your spirit consciousness merges with your desire to become a living expression of God consciousness.
This will help you to focus your mind on the divine light. When your higher mind is learning to blend with your Higher Self, (The God aspect) it allows the God force/expression of God in your life.
This will require discipline and focus on what you are processing through your mind, and consciously redirecting your thoughts to the light. You ask God to help you by seeing the higher perspective so that you can radiate out a higher frequency. We all came into this life to attain experience, to learn and most importantly to develop our consciousness with the purpose of reaching our highest and most purest state of being of expression.
What Is a Spiritual Awakening?
Spiritual Awakening is: an initiation into cultivating our consciousness … The awakening process itself is when the lower-self transcends fear, confusion, and the many lies and illusions of the physical in order to reconnect with higher consciousness and full awareness of the underlying love and peace present in every moment.
Spiritual awakening is in the simplest sense, a shift in awareness & Consciousness
The word awakening is a powerful metaphor to describe the shift/change… Because ultimately our vocabulary lacks words when it comes to trying to explain the profound and life-altering change that can happen in a moment when you wake up.
In many ways, “waking up spiritually” feels like waking up from a dream and suddenly realizing that your previous (dream) experience seemed so real, and vivid… Was rooted in lies, distortion and illusion. Upon awakening, it becomes crystal clear that there’s so much more, and the dream state you’re waking up from is the collective web of beliefs, pathways and perceptions that make up reality.
The Awakening Process
Each individual Soul is vibrating precisely in accordance with universal law which is love! Therefore, each individual soul/person will be at the “right everything/time” as we understand time to be? They can through their own personal/spiritual discipline participate within this “new universal calibration” and will embrace this spiritual awakening process.
Individuals across the planet are waking up and letting go of the mind’s grip upon illusion to experience a profound change in consciousness and an expanded perspective and awareness.
The awakening process involves realizing from deep within and all around that the separation, limitation, beliefs and the models for success and happiness in the physical world are rooted in lies.
It's a highly personal process that can also be deeply challenging as the very foundations you've built for how to live and succeed in the world seem to crumble away. Awakening reveals the many “matrix programs” of society have only been weighing you down and hiding you from your true light and infinite potential.
The Awakening… The Initiation
Spiritual awakening is often referred to as “that one-moment of realisation” and while this is true to an extent, it is very much an initiation… Awakening is just the doorway into our infinite journey.
It is the entrance into the Divine “I AM” awakening whereby each individual Soul can continue to move forward along their personal/spiritual path of unfoldment growth which in turn creates an expansion on all levels by each taking one step at a time.
Each small step will have purpose and intelligence working for us and for our progress along the path towards the soul awakening to our deeper levels of understanding whereby we become more sensitive and aware to higher vibrations of the extent of our Divine calling which in turn give us a glimpse into our life purpose.
Without this awakening that we are talking about, one might remain a prisoner of materialism and stay on the path of the external… Pursuing the unfulfilling markers of success and happiness dictated by society like: money, material success, fame, power, or even “the good job”, or the deeply seeded happiness myth of: “buying a home, getting married, having kids, and living happily ever after”.
Through awakening, you come to see through the illusions and fog of the physical earthly aspect of self and recognize that nothing external can ever bring you true fulfilment, success, and happiness.
