Kristin Taylor
Hello, everyone. My guest today, I’m so thrilled to say, is Anne Bayford, who has a remarkable near death experience to share with today. So I’m just gonna give you a small little bio because I wanna make sure that she can tell her story in her own words. But to give you a little peak, she is a multi faceted medium, past life practitioner and trans channelers specializing in soul auditing, which means helping people know where they are on their own soul journey, and coaching them towards what they’re here to do through soul coaching, and working with their team of experts at Odyssey the platform. And channel information to create Odyssey the platform and is now 1 of the cofounders.

Odyssey has become a successful private spiritual well-being worldwide practice. Welcome, Anne. Thank you for having me.

Anne Bayford
It’s lovely to be here.

Kristin Taylor
I was so excited that you were gonna be here. I saw you on another show, and I always loved to promote other shows. And I always messed this up. Next level soul with Alex?

Anne Bayford
That was 1 of them. Yes. I’ve been on others. But, yes, it’s 1 of them.

Kristin Taylor
Yes. And you are just such a joy, such a great sense of humor, such a deep soul, and you have so much to teach us with who you are and what you’ve experienced. So like I said, you have this remarkable near death experience, but you also have always, to my under standing had this connection with the other side. Is is that correct?

Anne Bayford
That is correct. Yeah. From childhood. Yeah. It it came in at very very, very young age.

I I thought I was going crazy. Absolutely thought I was going crazy. And I thought I was imagining hearing the voices of animals talking to me. And, well, at the time I didn’t realize crazy as a child when I heard the voices or saw people walk looking around. So I thought everyone saw that.

Everyone could hear animals talking. And, you know, when you get to become a little bit old when you’re at school, and then, you know, you’re too frightened to mention anything because I was other people are looking at you and judging you. I think it’s a difficult time anyway when you’re going through schools. And then, yeah, then I then I started realizing that, well, I started thinking maybe might be a little bit different. And, you know, what humans like.

They some of us do not like to be different. Now as a woman of 55, I want it to be different. I’m quite happy and different. Thank you very much.

Kristin Taylor
It takes a while to really embrace who we are, but I can’t imagine as a young child at any age in childhood, adolescence, all we want is to fit in. And here you have this remarkable gift, but probably didn’t always feel like a gift. When it’s like so you’re like, what? Doesn’t everyone else see that person walking across or hear that animal speaking?

Anne Bayford
Well, yeah. And even now, you know, I was I teach. I have students and clients around the world. And I was saying to my students here, and I was teaching them about psychic mediumship and stuff and helping people to develop their own intuitive and psychic skills. And I was saying to them, I literally got woken up this morning.

I said to them the other day, half past 3, Someone was bending over me and saying, I was murdered. Can you help me? And I’m like, oh, well, hello a minute. 333. Why wait?

Me up at this time. It’s inconvenient, please.

Kristin Taylor
Yeah. They took plenty of time on the other side. Could they not have waited a few hours?

Anne Bayford
Yeah. Go ahead. Time zone.

Kristin Taylor
That’s your life though. I mean, that’s the kind of stuff that happens.

Anne Bayford
Yeah. And, you know, I would say to my students, Well, that’s not being very professional. You know, she’d have an opening and closing hours, which I do. It’s a bit like having well, like a shop window when you have the store is closed. Or it’s open.

But the way I see it, like, when I work in my team of guides and and my, you know, my spirit guides to help with loved ones coming forward, I see as a very plush hotel lobby now, like the savoy in London. And so when I’m working, I sort of when I when I come into my office each day, I I sit down. I do my meditation. I go, okay, guys. We’re ready to work, and they show me that plush lobby area with individuals.

I haven’t met them yet. But I see them sitting in comfortable chairs or whatever they’re doing, and then I say to my my guides, okay. I’m ready to work. And then My client appears on the screen as I do Zoom around the world, and then loved 1 will come in. So it’s like almost like a doctor walking into his waiting area.

You don’t know who they are until you see them. So, yes, it’s open and closed. You know, closed hours. I’m not working, but Sometimes you get the odd soul, you know, when we go into to dreaming at night, sometimes we’re quite open and susceptible for individuals to copy, but this individual knew that I could help them. So woke me up at 3:33.

And I said, could you come back when I wake up in the morning, please, around about 7:30? And which they did.

Kristin Taylor
Oh, good. Okay. So that person, that soul, respected your boundary.

Anne Bayford
Yeah. Well, they didn’t quite read the memo. I don’t think on the other side. So that’s they just popped in, and I said, hello, you’re new on the other side. I think you need to speak to my gatekeeper around my guides, and they’ll tell you.

And, you know, the spirits on your side, they’re off have a joke, and they laugh, and they sort they know me so well. So I sometimes have a conversation with them Bayford I even have a conversation with the clients that sit here with me. But, yeah, Thank you.

Kristin Taylor
God, it’s so fascinating. So now and you don’t need to, but now I’m fascinated by this person who said I was murdered and I need your help. Were you able to begin to help, or how what do you do with something like that?

Anne Bayford
Oh, gosh. This has happened a number of times. So I actually said I don’t know how I’m gonna help people, wait and see. And then somebody reach out by email a couple of days later and said that somebody that they know in this community had been murdered 13 9 years ago. But because of the energy of those in the community, so now looking at, you know, what’s going on you know, what happened to that that female that that died.

So I’m working on that case now, but there has been cases. I can’t watch the news because if I watch the news and someone’s been murdered, it pops in straightaway because they know I work with the police. They know I work on big cases. So on the spirits and it’s almost like you’re graded and there’s sorry. 1 of my guys should’ve said like a diamond, but anyway, let you’re graded and say that they know that’s the work I do.

I do remote viewing. I do work for different bodies of people. And so, yeah, I can I can go in to have a little look at what items are given to me and I can feed into the item and I I like to connect with a personality so that I know I’ve actually got that individual because if you imagine we’re all like radios, we’re picking up on frequencies, band whips and FM and AM? I don’t know if you have the same there.

Kristin Taylor
But Mhmm.

Anne Bayford
As a radio, I’m having to tune in to find out who this individual joy is and to see if I can connect to them. This not every medium in the world is gonna work for every single person out there that’s in the world. So you have to go with the person that’s gonna fit with you. So yeah. So they know all the spirits.

So if they pop in, they And I’ve worked in a few cases where someone’s been murdered or a cold case. I’ve actually, you know, popped into the individual of felt what they felt Bayford. I passed on this 2 family members where somebody was shot in their head. It was a big case I was working on. And there was about 6 people that were actually murdered at this particular time, and I was able to communicate with the individual and I could feel his feelings before he was about to be shot.

He had a sort of a sack over his head, and I could feel his feelings. So I passed it on to his son. The information, and I confirmed some bits and pieces. So yeah. So I I I’ve gotta say.

So I get the opportunity to feel what they’re feeling and and there’s been cases where somebody had been kicked in the eye socket and I could taste the blood in my mouth because I’m quite physical transmedium. But what is comforting in the work that I do enjoy is that and, yeah, and I do enjoy it because I know the loved 1 that’s on the other side is no longer in pain. They have passed that through the episode. Now I’m offering the confirmation, a clarification to the individuals come to me. They then have a conversation I’m in the middle.

Sometimes some of the conversations are in a bit in some situations, some can be a bit wonky. Where her husband or wife is still alive and on planet Earth, this is true. This is I don’t wanna be in

Kristin Taylor
bed with you guys.

Anne Bayford
Honestly, Oh my god. If only you knew, honestly, seriously. I mean, I’m gonna write a book at some point because this That’s

Kristin Taylor
what I’m saying you’re thinking. You have so many stories. I’m sorry. I just got this terrible cough, so I have a lozenges in my mouth. So that’s a lot of trauma for you to experience.

Someone who’s got a SACOVER has had someone who’s gotten kicked in the eye. I mean, someone who’s been murdered, and you are feeling it physically.

Anne Bayford
Yeah.

Kristin Taylor
How do you make sure you don’t lose your mind or get re traumatized and over and over and over again.

Anne Bayford
Yeah. That’s brilliant. I love that. Well, you know, I trained originally as a counselor. And as a counselor, we learn to sort of it’s not our stuff.

It’s our client stuff. But to be honest, I always feel as a counselor as a therapist that in a way you have to be able to connect to your client, that you have to understand, you have to empathize to some degree, you won’t be good at your job.

Kristin Taylor
That’s right. You have

Anne Bayford
to sort of fill into that, like, you know, put yourself into those shoes to some degree, but also you have to your own sanity. Yeah. So to be honest, I was I was asked this recently by a couple of my students because now they’re opening to the work and they’re all empaths and they’re funding it quite difficult. But I think for me, because of my traumatic experiences that I’ve gone through my own childhood. I’ve sort of have managed to think that it’s okay we all get through this.

So it’s like sort of the British singer if I connect to some degree, which isn’t entirely healthy. But by going through everything I’ve gone for, you know, being disabled for 4 years after my knee defects. It’s my first 1. I you know, my leg was really amputated. And the expense I had there I’ve sort of learned that actually you can achieve anything you want to, and there’s always a reason for what ever happens to in your life.

So when Things are really tough, and god they’d be really tough. And like, you know, even February last year, I had a seizure on couldn’t walk for 14 weeks. I heard a brain bleed, a mini stroke. But the way I see it is that, actually, this is something to stop me on my track for me to take some time out. I wasn’t listening.

I knew I was over working. I was going for a stressful period of print from my previous partner 30 years. So I always look at things and say, okay. There’s a reason why this is happening right now. I may not know the answer, but I need take a moment of pause, I need to be kind to myself, and I need to sit with it.

So when I’m seeing, you know, clients and these traumatic experiences, I remind myself, this person will get through this. They will get through this. I’m communicating with their loved 1. They passed over to the other side now. They’re no longer in any pain.

I’ve got this fantastic job. I mean, you can’t even call it a job where I’m helping to communicate with the voice for them, like the telephone of relaying what they’re saying. How they’re thinking and feeling about their loved ones. And I’m just like, I just feel so privileged but they’ve chosen me to speak with them and to pass on the message. I mean, I had I got a beautiful story last week.

Sorry. I know I keep going off. Please. Please. Please.

There’s this beautiful woman that came on from Australia, a client that had reached out, she’d seen me on 1 of the YouTube clips. And her daughter had I said to her, you got 2 daughters. And she said, no. No. I’ve only got 1.

I said, you can’t forget the 1 that passed over, and she said, how do you know? And I said, well, no. I mean, that’s what I’m feeling. She’s now on the other side. She’s grown.

This is how her age and this is how big she is now. And She’s in spirit, but she’s around your daughter. I said there’s something about a soft toy that your daughter has named her this, the the same name that I think the the little girl I passed, I think it was 9 days after she was born. So it was really traumatic. And I I said to her that she comes and visits, and you there’s a special Christmas decoration that you you put up on your tree.

Okay. Thank you. I was just checking my guides. I know she won’t mind me giving the name of her daughter because I know she knows that this will help other women who lose their babies. And, you know, I’ve lost I had 5 miscarriages, so that’s why I have a lot of individuals that come to me.

Mhmm. And I said Belle, and she said, yeah, her name was Belle. So every Christmas just before Christmas. They put a little bell decoration up, and they and they remember her. And so she gave the message.

So, oh my god. You know, it’s like, I feel honored. Yes. I can pass on

Kristin Taylor
what an incredible honor that is. And so that leaves me so perfectly into asking with your insight, with your guides, with your near death experiences, which I definitely wanna make sure we’re spending a good amount of time on. Do you have insight as to why in this lifetime you have this incredible gift and does it have bearing to past lives or lineage or what did you know about that?

Anne Bayford
Okay. Gosh. Amazing question. I’ve I’ve I’ve been are so many questions by so many individuals, but that is a cracker. I love that 1.

Kristin Taylor
That’s really good. I don’t think curiosity goes.

Anne Bayford
I love it. I love it. I I have to admit. At first, I didn’t understand what was going on. I mean, I’ve mentioned this before that, you know, When I was hearing all the voices, when I was a teenager, I thought I was going crazy.

And then trying to understand myself more, you know, I go to the the doctor and see the doctor you know, the regular general practitioner, and I say, I’m hearing voices. And the first thing they do is lock you up and say, oh, you either schizophrenia or she’s having a spell you know, where she’s going crazy. What a stupid thing to do? And I literally was in a psychiatric hospital for a couple of days, and I was like, well, how the hell do I get out of here? Because I just want you to drug me up with low medication.

And and Mitchell, I said, how the hell do I get out of here? Now I didn’t know anything about guides at that time I just I didn’t have any idea, but I know I kept on hearing a voice. And the voice actually said to me, just pretend you can’t hear us. Yeah. And I was like, am I going crazy hearing that voice?

Or do I just pretend I can’t hear you? So I said, I can’t hear anything think I must have just been going through some stress. So there was that when it all started where, you know, as an adult and this happened, and it was a curse. So I was like, what is wrong with me? What is going on.

And I hadn’t I hadn’t really looked at psychic work or intuition. I hadn’t really looked at that at all, and that, you know, it was quite a confusing time for me that time, you know, I was in a a quite toxic relationship I’d had, I think, by that time, 3 miscarriages and I was down myself as a woman and I couldn’t do anything normal natural as a woman, you know, my body was letting me down as I thought I was about 18 or 19, something like that. So I was really disappointed and everything. And It was only literally through having a near death expense. It really woke up for me when my children were 5 and 7 years old.

And when I started looking into it, more. I only found out that through my father who had left when I was 2 years old, that he’d said, well, on on our side. He said, I’m a medium and your grandma is a psychic medium and she used to do the spiritual church. She used to stand on platform, give messages, which I didn’t know because the family had split

Kristin Taylor
up. Mhmm.

Anne Bayford
And then found out from my mother that her father is quite psychic, was quite psychic. So he used to bet on the horses. Anyways, used to win, and it wasn’t made to be a big thing.

Kristin Taylor
Mhmm.

Anne Bayford
And his sister, my great great Nancy. She was a psychic medium. So on both bloodlines, I have that in my veins, shall I say. Mhmm. And I know past lives.

When I’ve done my past lives and ideally being a past life practitioner, you can do it on yourself, which is amazing. When I look at that, I can see the many lies I’ve lived where I used to do this. And back in the day, they’d call you a witch. Mhmm. But, you know, it’s just a aprophy.

It’s natural herbs. What we use today. It’s very fashionable to use the herbs today. We’ll call anyone which is thank God. You know, I was I would have been burned at the stake again in this lifetime.

Kristin Taylor
Again, so you’re going to the staying.

Anne Bayford
Anagram. Anagram. So I knew that was part of going back to my past lifetimes as well. And having that near death experience, the first 1, going to the cash at records, which I didn’t know that was their name. That time.

All I know was going up somewhere at that, you know, not down by the van. I died for about 6 or 7 minutes. It’s all documented did. And then I was told so much information, which I didn’t retain all the information, but every time I have a near death experience, I’ve had 3, and then that’s not counting February last year.

Kristin Taylor
3. You’ve had 3. Yeah. I have 3. Yeah.

What a next extraordinary life. I mean, obviously, they’re like, you’re not ready. It’s not your time. Keep going back.

Anne Bayford
Yeah. I keep trying to get fruit to the other side. I don’t see a yellow.

Kristin Taylor
Why do you I mean, I wanna hear the details of the near death experience, particularly when you go to the Akashic records and what you learned and what you can remember. Yeah. Why do you think you’ve had 3? I mean, 1 is enough. Right?

Anne Bayford
Yeah. Well, I was just stubborn. I just got innocent. They said, you want back home. And 1 of those children that you have at school that, if a teacher tells them what to do and you’re like, no, I don’t believe you.

I mean, I was at that from a child. My mom had been married 3 times as well. So we’d had a lifestyle where the first time they I was 2 second dad, we were very wealthy. Couple of houses in the country used to ride horses, shooting fish, and everything. He left.

She was a single parent. We literally laid on the floor where we had a mattress, no proper bed, no food, we go to bed hungry. Yeah. Absolutely terrible. And then she ended up making my my final step dad, Jamaican Rostafarian, that took on 3 white children, and life.

Yeah. And it’s it’s just like and so I don’t listen to anybody. I don’t believe anybody. So I’m like, I wanna prove some things, you know, even the science around, you know, the psychic mediumship. I wanna prove things, and that’s how I’ve always been.

So when I keep popping over to the other side, The body keeps letting me down, but my soul is like, right now you’re not ready to go. They keep telling me come back. You have to finish your task.

Kristin Taylor
Yeah.

Anne Bayford
And I know that’s to help others to to ever understand and a better understanding. It’s not freaky or weird to be psychic. It’s your natural abilities. It’s for all of us to tune in because Instead of watching information from news and telling us what we should do, what we shouldn’t do. It’s about we should be able to tune in to our own hearts, our own soul, a high consciousness, whatever you wanna cool it, and that we guide ourselves.

And that’s part of my mission is to help others to learn that while you’re here to tune in to your inner voice, so it helps guide you and not keep asking everybody else. So Yeah. That’s my mission.

Kristin Taylor
Okay. Extraordinary mission, and you’re doing it right now. You’re doing it right now. So I’m torn between, okay, near death experience. Helping people how to tune in.

Those are the 2 things I wanna achieve in this call. Okay.

Anne Bayford
Fingers crossed.

Kristin Taylor
Fingers crossed to see where we go. Okay. Pressure. No pressure whatsoever. Easy peasy.

So because you’ve had 3 near death experiences, which 1 do you feel is most important to share to that end.

Anne Bayford
Yeah. I think the most profound 1 was the very first 1, and I always go back to that. I mean, that was 20 years ago now. 20 yeah. 21.

21 years ago. Thank you. I was just corrected by 1 of my guides. That’s brilliant. I I am off at the moment, but let’s still pop in So 29 years ago, it was March, and it was winter here in the UK, and it was literally You know, as a mom with 2 children who are 5 years old and 7 years old and you have to work because that’s just how it goes.

And I remember to rushing, getting them into school, and as you are driving, getting stuck in traffic, taking the children, you know, in your head, you’re doing all the tasks, juggling everything, as a mom, what they’re having for dinner tonight? Have they done their homework? Are they going to somebody else’s house? You know? Then you’re trying to manage about thinking about work.

Have you done this? Have you done that? Also was going on in my head. Right. And if I’d known at the time because I really wasn’t awoken at that time as we called it now at spiritual awakening, I was really sort of in my head doing all the things that you do as a mom, working mom.

And again, the case in the forehead I was hurrying, and I was like, I hadn’t really taken in that moment, you know, moment where you kiss them, you feel your lips on their forehead, and how much you love them, and you hold them high. No. I wasn’t being in the moment at all. I was still thinking I needed to be somewhere else, and I had a lot of guilt for a long time afterwards. And I said goodbye to them.

I rushed off, and I got the training to work. And at work, I worked for a charity where I organized volunteers to go out to the oldly to read their newspapers for them or take them for a walk or just to sit and talk to them. That’s the charity I work for. Ajukain in the United Kingdom, and it got to about 2 o’clock. And at that point, I’d wrote a letter.

I was gonna post a letter in a post box, and I was leaving work. And again, my head was jumbled all over the place thinking I have to rush to go to the kids up. I have to make sure I catch the train. And I left the community center that I worked in, and all the elderly was sitting there. Someone was playing on the piano, somebody was playing bingo and by Anne and everyone’s waiting to me, see you tomorrow and Yep.

And you just take it for granted. Now every day you’re gonna wake up and every day you’re gonna go to work or every day you’re gonna feed the kids or whatever it is. And as I was walking, I was thinking in a game. I wasn’t being present. I was thinking, should I go get the train?

Should I go get a newspaper? Should I go piss them out? Should I cross the traffic lights? Again, my head was all over place. And I remember there was a couple of people at the pedestrian crossing.

Someone had pressed the button. There was about 4 or 5 of us. And our habit I would look both ways as I’m crossing the road, and I didn’t have to because the traffic was different on both side of the roads. And then I heard a voice And to me at the time, I sort of really had to think because in my head, I heard a voice saying, everything’s gonna be okay. And I was like, why why am I hearing that?

And I’m still crossing the road and I’m still thinking about the newspaper, and it really punctuated my thoughts. And I was like, god, I recognized the voice, and it was the voice of my grandma. And she had passed when I was 15. She was like my mother to me. If we had a lot of domestic violence growing up as a child, so I often used to stay with my grandparents.

My mom, I’ve got being up quite a lot. 1 of my cousins is now a colleague. The other 1 was into drugs. So it was hard. And, of course, I was that annoying child that didn’t listen to any body and yeah.

So to make sure I was safe, I was sent to my grandparents a lot. So my name at Postman’s 15, and I heard her voice when I was at this crossroads on this road in London, busy London and I couldn’t understand why I was hearing that voice. And then I felt very warm. Now it was a cold winter sort of, you know, it was March. It was very cold in in in London.

It was winter. No rain. Nothing like that, but it was very cold. But I felt awesome, very warm, and that’s what I remember there. And then things really twisted.

So physically in the the reality of the world, what happened is I’d put my I just before this happened, I was thinking I post my letter in the letter box, or shall I go and get the newspaper? And going to get the newspaper meant that I changed angle. And on my body weight was on my right hand side of my body, and I just change direction slightly. Now, I was thinking this in my head, should I go get to that level post the letter or go get a newspaper. And I heard my earnings voice again saying, go and buy the newspaper which changed my direction.

And, thankfully, I listened to that inner voice, but they got feeling like we all have, but sometimes like, no. Don’t listen to it. So I listened to it and thank God I did. So in the 3 d reality world, while I did this, I changed direction. The van was driving.

I suppose 40 miles per hour. So I don’t know if it’s about 80 kilometers. I don’t know what I don’t know how you guys did there, but it was 40 miles per hour on a road you should have been driving 20 miles per hour. And he went straight through the red lights and went straight to my body.

Kristin Taylor
Oh my gosh.

Anne Bayford
There were 5 other 4 or 5 other people crossed at the same time, but yet I get hit by this van. So I get hit on my left hand side. It froze me across the ground about 10 feet. I land on my right hand side of the body, so the van continues to drive off. Someone had seen the driver on spoke.

He leaves me there. The traffic stops. People have stopped. They’re they’re screaming. They were screaming.

People standing around. People had called ambulance, police, whatever. That was going on in 3 d world. Okay.

Kristin Taylor
But that’s not the world you’re in at this moment.

Anne Bayford
No. I is in a different dimension totally, and I did understand. I understand. Thank god. Yeah.

I was warm and I remember it being very white, very bright, white light, but not harsh on my pupils or my eyes, and I was just there and around me, I could feel beans around me, which is say them as beans for now. Okay. There was like angelic energy as well around me, but I didn’t know that at the time that’s what it was. It’s only now as I work. I understand the difference.

So it was a lot of different beans around me, and I remember being there. I wasn’t scared felt very calm, very peaceful, and I remember being shown information. So the way it works when you’re going to your car sheet records, which I didn’t know was called at the time, I just got like a giant library, and there was many books or many shelves, and there were they were going on for miles and miles and miles and miles into the distance. And I was being shown giant scrolls and jars and containers, and they were showing me this information, and they were showing me almost like Harry Potter movie. They’re showing me the book would open, and there was images that came out of the book, and I could see them, and I was at and I remember it was really important and I had to pay attention.

But remember, I’m this child that never paid attention at school. I would be selecting. Never understood anything. I was a gay dreamer. I was always looking at the window.

So even now, I’m on the other side, and I’m still not paying attention. Oh, god. I can’t help you. You know, I can’t change habit loans. Yes.

Kristin Taylor
So if you give me

Anne Bayford
all these information, I knew it was really important, I was like, really important.

Kristin Taylor
And you know that when you bang

Anne Bayford
your head, your hand again is really important. I must remember. I must remember. Or you tie a knot in something to send. You gotta remember saying, or you’re right and baro on the back of your hand.

You know, you guys the shops or something. Yeah. Of course, I didn’t have any of those. I couldn’t, you know, whatever I suppose to store and remind myself or remember it. Remember, it was really important.

And all I remember is that there was this beam that went glided past me, didn’t see any feet, and I looked down, I was like, but where are your feet. So I got so distracted. That’s not my fault. That’s their fault. There was too much going on

Kristin Taylor
around me. They can’t put all this in front of you and expect you to be fully present. At this moment, are you knowing I am dead, or you’re just I know immersed in this reality. That’s not even a concept.

Anne Bayford
Yeah. I no idea. I just I’m his accent. And I was like, okay. I I I didn’t even think.

I’m just like, yep. I’m I’m being shown this information. I know it’s really important. It’s like going to the head mask are laying outside his office and you’re really, you know, like, what what’s happened now? And I was like, I couldn’t understand.

Very confused sort of thing. I was, what what are you showing me? Don’t understand. Too much information. It’s almost like the architect.

You know, you’re having a house build. You see an architect, and they show the blueprint. It’s a bit like that. And I hadn’t got a clue.

Kristin Taylor
I don’t know what all this means yet.

Anne Bayford
No idea at all. So that was going on there. The other part of a different diet mention and sense was what was happening was, my soul was, like, and I didn’t know. So it was called at the time. But somehow, I was hovering above my body, and I could see and he knows my body at the time.

And I could see this physical form on the ground in the road. I saw all these people standing around, and I was like, I could feel and sense their fear or they’re feeling scared or they’re feeling nervous and someone crying There was somebody who was familiar to me. It was a a relative that was looking, and he looked really gray in the face. He looked in shock. And I thought, why is uncle Peter looking like about what’s going on and it looks really upset.

And then then I had another flash that was then taken to the truck driver that was in parked up. It was busy road, and, of course, the road had been cornered off because I apparently was dead in the road, which I didn’t know at the time. And, you know, I was an inconvenience to his day, basically. It’s really nice.

Kristin Taylor
So you could go into his consciousness?

Anne Bayford
Yeah. Well,

Kristin Taylor
and and you were a mere inconvenience as well. Yeah.

Anne Bayford
I could I could feel it. I could hear it. He was moaning on his phone to his boss saying that some silly woman I mean, he was using blue language at this time,

Kristin Taylor
so it’s minor use it. Well, jerk.

Anne Bayford
You know what? Just your life. And it didn’t understand. I’d I’d you know, I still, again, I was an understanding that I was moving it in and out, and I was seen all this. I didn’t didn’t question it.

I was just, like, hearing what he was saying. I could hear on the radio station, there was gonna be a woman that was being airlifted to a hospital. There’s an emergency. There’s gonna be a helicopter landing in the road. I could hear the sirens.

I could see a paramedic arriving on his motorbike that, you know, he pulled up down the road from me. I sort of exactly re parked. There was a woman that was gonna get a tail out of her hairdressers to wrap onto my neck and people would scream and say, don’t touch her. You might break her neck, you know, whatever. Yeah.

Everyone was screaming, so I could see that.

Kristin Taylor
And then So you’re holding both realities, or are you popping back and forth?

Anne Bayford
Yes. Yes. So it was like, I was it was almost like, where you’re consciousness is aware of. That’s where you travel to.

Kristin Taylor
Okay.

Anne Bayford
So my soul consciousness was showing me. It was the awareness. So I was aware that I was in Kashmir records, which I didn’t know what it’s called at that time. Mhmm.

Kristin Taylor
I

Anne Bayford
was given some information. And when I was given some information, has been shown. It’s a bit like a screwed. You know, when Christmas past, the screwed movie, it was always been showing different things at different times, different dimensions and stuff.

Kristin Taylor
Okay.

Anne Bayford
And then there was a point where I could see my partner walk in. No hurry. Right? You know, I could be dead, but no hurry. I mean, that son got my 3rd 2 year relationship.

Kristin Taylor
I’m sorry. Did he stop and maybe get a beer on the way or something?

Anne Bayford
She know he might have. Who knows? You could have. It was like get a lazy chair and sit and just watch the world go by. But

Kristin Taylor
Wow.

Anne Bayford
So I think maybe I’d be fair to him. Look. He might have been in shock. So he was walking, you know, big strides, and I could see his mom running down the road. And then he bent down.

And I didn’t know he was dead at the time. He bent down. Had he hand about to touch my head. And, again, I I could see this. It was like, I could see someone bending over this individual again.

He didn’t know it was my body, but I was like, I I recognized him. I recognized his mom. I recognized his uncle. What’s he doing? And then he put his hand on my head, which I could see from outside of my body.

Drelli put his hand on my head. I could feel into his feelings. The first thing he said was that, you know, I was expecting everything. You know? Like, how am I gonna manage without her?

Oh, no. It was like, how am I gonna look after Rebecca and Nathan? That’s our children. And that’s horny for And I was like, for real. Mhmm.

And that’s that’s what he was thinking. And then the paramedic arrived, the ambulance arrived, I could hear the sirens. And that’s when I was sort of like aware that it was physically me because I could feel his energy, I could feel his thoughts, and then I realized that’s my body. And then I I then remember where I was Nakashic records. It was very wide and it was individuals around me.

And I remember looking at them and going, what’s going on? I can’t go. This is me. And I remember say, what’s gonna happen if he gets me still? What’s gonna happen to Rebecca and Nathan?

I mean, Rebecca and Nathan are 2927. But as a mother, I still feel that.

Kristin Taylor
Because if I’m

Anne Bayford
with these

Kristin Taylor
It will write. I’m a mother too. Yeah.

Anne Bayford
Right. You get this. So Yeah. So the paramedic come over. They’ve cut open my clothes, cut everything off.

You know, they had to paddle me. So the electric paddles, they had to put on my

Kristin Taylor
did revive you?

Anne Bayford
Yeah. Exactly. And when they did that, it was like my body was whizzing around a water slide in like you have in a theme park, the water slides that go around the spiral, I wiz back into my body. That’s how it felt. Like, was that whoosh?

And when I hit my body, I was in so much pain.

Kristin Taylor
Oh, I feel so bad for what that must have happened.

Anne Bayford
It was painful because I’d broken my foot 7 places. I had ripped my ankle, my foot out, my ankle joint. I had also damaged the bones in there and the tendons and nerve ending. I had broken my knee cap. I had tore my cartilage and my knee because he had twisted off at the speed.

Replied hips. My hip was fractured. My rib cage was fractured on both sides. As I landed, my sort of hip pelvis of the bone has sort of my muscle part and it sort of sort of damage area. So it’s like a giant pumpkin in that area.

It’s like it severed lots of muscles, and it was bruised, the whole trunk of my body. I hadn’t damaged my head, which was good. I hadn’t damaged my neck, which was really good.

Kristin Taylor
Yeah. But I

Anne Bayford
was bleeding internally now in my spleen. So my kidneys were bleeding. My spleen had was damaged. Shirt. Yeah.

So as I was being whizzed off to the hospital, there was moments I was in and out of consciousness, and I could see I was hovering above the ambulance. I see the number of the ambulance and siren. When it got me into the crash team in the hospital, there was free sets of of tea members. They were cutting my bottom part of my clothes off the middle part, the top part. I was naked, and there was no embarrassment because wasn’t connected to my body.

I was looking over my body, and I could feel how nervous and why they were. They were gonna lose me. And you know, injections, put into my arms, and and everything can plaster cast. And then I was put into intensive care unit. When I returned home after a number of weeks, I couldn’t walk on my foot.

They were gonna amputate my foot and For 2 years, I was in a wheelchair. The children were pushing me around. I couldn’t go walk up the stairs to read my children bedtime story, which was the hardest thing. Yeah. And that was still upsetting to me today because it was 2 years.

And then another 2 years after getting up the wheelchair, I had to learn to re walk again with a walking stick, so I was disabled. And the abuse I got for being disabled and park in my car in a disabled bay because people would say, you’re so young, you cannot be disabled. So the Yeah. Anyway, that’s another story.

Kristin Taylor
That’s quite a story, though. Yeah. Wow. Wow. And, you know, when I say quite a story, yes, I mean, the whole NDE, but also the experience of people think you’re young and not disabled, although they can’t see what you’re dealing with internally to receive the under saving end of that.

How did you begin to assimilate what you experienced in the akashic records. And as you talked about the angelic beans, help us understand what you learned that feels important for people to understand.

Anne Bayford
That’s a good point. It took a long time. So, you know, as it it took a long time for me to process this. As a as a counselor training in science, and then the expense I went through, trying to understand, you know, was it’s really my mind. What did this really happen?

So it took a a long time. And I didn’t know, as I say, what that actually meant, what what was happening, what was acashed records, what was personalized, what was I’ve been showing, you know? So I’ve

Kristin Taylor
been using.

Anne Bayford
Yeah. And I’ve been going to church before then, and I went church in my wheelchair, and I’m speaking to the vicar at the time. And he said, well, we don’t really believe that you have this sort of experience.

Kristin Taylor
And I

Anne Bayford
was like, oh my god.

Kristin Taylor
That’s the that’s, like, damaging, super damaging to hear that.

Anne Bayford
I gave up hope because it’s like, you know, it’s you’re trying to understand everything that happens in your everyday life. You’re trying to put it into a box or a parcel or a shape or form, some sort of structure, so it helps you. And then, you know, you turn to an individual and that’s what they said, but it was fine. I was like, okay. That’s not gonna stop me.

Okay. So then I started researching information on YouTube. That’s what I did. I I’d listening to Anita Long job, I think her name is where she said about her near death experience. It’s quite well known at the time.

And Wayne Dyer, I’d watching his work suddenly when he passed. But hey. And then I went to the college of psychic studies in South Kensington, and I was just a student and that’s all I was at the time. And when I was there learning as a student, a number of very famous well known mediums kept in coming up to me and saying, Oh, you’re gonna be 1 day. You’re gonna work here as a consultant, and you’re gonna do this, and you’re gonna do that.

And they told me so and a lot of it’s coming true. And it was literally about 10 years afterwards after being student, and, you know, just wanting to enjoy all that world or the Harry Potter world and political stakes and enjoying all that. Then I realized that I’m a little bit different for some of the other medians, and it would be sad to waste my skill set because I’d had the information from your at record is I’d crossed over a number of times already. Now being a physical trance medium, I can feel the individuals, I channel, like beans, and then everything. And I just thought It’s time to make me understand why why I am here personally, and it gave me a sort of admission.

It made me in and why was here, and everybody’s here for their sole purpose of discovering why they are individually here. So my theory in the work that I’ve been doing is that as a soul, you are on recycle button that you come backwards and forwards and you learn things. It’s about your soul develop and it’s about you learning and growing and not making the same mistakes again and again, but maybe looking at those individual situations in your life and look can I learn from this? What is this showing me? Instead of in the I’m not saying there’s nothing wrong being in victim mode.

We all go in there sometimes, and it’s okay. But don’t lose yourself in that darkness. Yeah. It’s about, you know, taking that moment, taking that time to breathe into it. And to look at what you do have.

You know, all this was happening. I had my children still. They were alive. You know? They had gone through hell.

And back, you know, having this under their mom, and it still today affects them. They told me, but it’s also made them compassionate towards other people for their experiences. You know, having a mom, but, you know, even now in my lungs, when they collapse my second new deaf experience. I have a hidden disability. Yeah.

So it’s like, we have to be aware of people. You know? And and it’s down to those individuals that’s going on in their life and accommodate those individuals. And so for the work that I do of individuals, we I look at your journey, and I help the individuals give them their skills, their tools to help them. I’m a believer in you help individuals to find their path way too.

It’s not about I want someone to be reliant upon me or totally always seeing a medium or a psychic or whatever it’s about you having that connection with yourself. You have in that connection to source. You have in that connection to your higher self or your guides. Yeah. So that you can live the life that you want, and that’s I do now?

Kristin Taylor
Oh, that’s just magnificent. It’s also a beautiful transition that you’ve invited into. Is there anything that you can share to our listeners, just maybe even a baby step to connect to their higher selves so that they can be empowered to be more aligned with their told’s mission.

Anne Bayford
Yeah. I love that. Well, to you, I’m gonna go, well, you need to start listening to the inner voices. Right? And if the inner voices are telling new, you’re too fat, you’re too thin or whatever is and is abusive.

Forget that in your voice. Yeah. That’s the old experiences you’ve gone through. That’s the old beliefs in your old database. And just like, you know, our telephones and telephones, they just said that’s very old.

And my god. Like mobile phones, you know, cellular phones, and like the laptops, they often have the updates, and it’s about updating yourself. So it’s about sitting down with yourself. And when something happens, I mean, I always say to my clients’ journal write down, get that in voice out, write it down, see how it makes sense to you because when somebody’s really hassling you, you know, when you’ve got a problem and too much. Sometimes we go into that fear mode and it becomes really foggy inside.

So I suggest writing down, you know, your your innermost full And then while you do this, some people is called automatic writing. Some people write things, you know, I don’t know where that came from, but it’s your inner self, your higher self, so connecting to to help guide you. So you can you can start by doing that. And I always say, when I say this to my students, unless you are meditating like a told you to. Forget it.

I can’t teach you. The meditation is simply it’s a bit like taking the needle off the rack code. It pulls issue. It stokes you. I love that metaphor.

Yeah.

Kristin Taylor
I love that metaphor. And so how 2 questions questions. 1 was with automatic writing, does it matter if you’re writing with your hand or typing on a keyboard? Is there any importance to that?

Anne Bayford
That’s a good point. It shouldn’t really matter. I’m just old school. I like a pen and a notepad, and I write quite freely when I’m doing that. And also I don’t look at the spellings.

I mean, being dyslexic, you’re not gonna look at the spellings anyway.

Kristin Taylor
Never a matter. Yeah.

Anne Bayford
But the idea is that wherever it’s free flowing. So if you’re the type of person that you, you know, it’s free flowing when you’re on the computer and you’re tapping away in the key,

Kristin Taylor
you map it.

Anne Bayford
The keys is absolutely fine. Or writing a notebook. I mean, what I also do is when I’m out and about, I use my mobile phone and my voice notes. So if I’m hearing information and it’s I feel it’s important or or talk to myself on my phone and then I listen back to it. But, yeah, to connect to your myself, it’s great idea to sit with yourself to to write or to type whatever is the easy way for yourself, which is perfect.

Kristin Taylor
I got it. And then with someone, and I know so many people feel so intimidated by meditation because Yeah. Monkey brain and this and that, what suggestions do you have?

Anne Bayford
Okay. Right. Okay. Well, you can imagine. Okay.

I’m that child at school being told what to do, so this is what I do for my clients. I know. I was 1 of those people. I was at my mind all over the place. What can I do?

So simple steps. Okay. I became a mindfulness practitioner, and so I I try to encourage this to all people Bayford you start going into meditation because boy, it’s gonna be hard. You tell someone stop thinking? Like, I know.

I’m gonna think. It’s normal.

Kristin Taylor
Yeah. Otherwise, if you’re as me not to think I can’t do this. That’s not the fact for me.

Anne Bayford
Exactly. So the tips leading up to that, I say about being mindful. So that means You make yourself a tea or coffee. Whenever you are having a tea or coffee, I want you to sit with that tea and coffee. I want you to romanticize want you to have a relationship with your tea and coffee.

I want you to feel the heat of the cup. I want you to taste whatever it is that you’re drinking. I want you to be in the present moment. Right. Whether you are walking down the road and you can feel your feet, that’s a form Agamata rotation is being connected with your feet to the ground.

But if you hear the wind, allow you to self to sit with the wind. Again, that’s a form of meditation. Nature is the best form of meditation. So when you allow yourself to be mindful in the moment, you keep practicing this for a period of time. When you brush your brush your teeth, change hands.

There’s a lot of research about the neuro pathways

Kristin Taylor
Right.

Anne Bayford
Like changing habits of behavior. There’s like Doctor Bruce Lipton talks this. Doctor. Joe dispenser talks about this. You you change when you change your hand for your brushing your your teeth, you’re having to actually think now of making a new pathway in your brain.

Yes. Now, you can always go off into autopilot. An autopilot is a little bit worrying because when we do that, we miss things around us. We dismiss the signs, the messages from spirit, and stuff like that. So by being mindful, you start changing things.

And when you do that, you then go to meditation, and I might say to somebody, if you have a monkey mind, which should be more into control when you started doing the mindfulness, What you can do is you walk in meditation. So you’re being mindful of where you’re walking, you’re visually taken in everything you can see. You’re coming out of your head about paying your bills. You’re coming out of your head about what you’re gonna do late for dinner or what you’re gonna do at work. So you start if you’re involved in nature, that helps.

And then what I do is I do channel meditation. So when I’m doing my channel meditation, It’s like there’s a frequency in the background, so it’s like deep channeling, healing from my light beams, light counsel that comes forward. But and even music, if you listen to a tune and allow yourself to go into some music, there’s research into classical music or whatever it feels your heart with joy. Mhmm. Tune in to that that distract your brain.

Start draining your brain to come out of the 3 d world that we live in and that world.

Kristin Taylor
That was some of the best advice I’ve ever heard because it is so practical. Yes. Thank you so much. It’s that sustained, present, moment awareness, but it’s breaking the, you know, as funny as my husband and I say to my son because we get in the habit of lecturing. We’re like we’re like a broken record, but He’s never seen a record.

He has no idea what that means. Right? But but it’s taking the needle off the record and getting off of that 3 d frequency. Yeah. So that you can be available.

Anne Bayford
Yeah. Oh, it’s funny. You said record. I think they’re called Vinyls now. They’re called Vinyl It’s not record players, but it’s a lot better than

Kristin Taylor
you know what we’re talking about. I was like, what

Anne Bayford
the hell I saw that in the shot, there’s like a vinyl player. I’ve gotta go and have a little look, and I was like, That’s a radical part of God’s sake. I thought you’d give me a new name. Yep.

Kristin Taylor
It’s so much more help. Yes.

Anne Bayford
Yeah. You know, it’s interesting what you were saying about your son. Because look. I’m not anti going on the computer. I’m not anti Instagram.

Not anti any of that at all. But what’s happened is some of the research I’ve been doing because, obviously, I’ve trained with the brain in NLP and hypnotherapy that I did everything, and whatever. When there’s this instant gratification that now that the children over the last 20 years have had this well, since mobile phones been around is the instant gratification that there’s no waiting for anything anymore. We get everything just when we want it and whatever, and there’s no excitement to anything anymore. And there’s this also what goes on Instagram.

We’ve attended this before. We went live. You were saying about, oh, I was saying about, you know, sometimes there’s filters on things, and we don’t we don’t tune into the real reality of the world. And That affects people. It affects everybody, whatever age you are.

But it’s like, when we look at the real world, we have to coming back to the moment, you know, all those things are actually happening and being present and not losing ourselves in somebody else’s 3 d reality as such what we think might be, like on Instagram, they’re showing us the best sides. And they there are lots of are having a fantastic time, we know. But it’s like you can lose yourself in their reality and then you step out of your own reality because it might feel comforting for a short time. But really should be the work doing on yourself because it’s your soul journey right here right now.

Kristin Taylor
Right. Right. In terms of Soul Journey’s and everyone has to and, of course, they can work with you, and I’ll be asking shortly how people can get in contact with you. But I love it. Like you’re teaching them how to fish rather than just giving them a fish.

Thematically, do you see certain themes heated in terms of people here right now with some missions, whether it’s generosity or compassion or forgiveness or or anything like that.

Anne Bayford
I think what’s happening right now, which I’m finding, I’m working with a lot students and clients around the world, is this great that people have become aware of. I hate in using the words built reality. I because of what we might think of it. But Yeah. What it is for me is that it’s this whole feeling of people or looking at the Wuru side of world and thinking that’s gonna solve everything.

You have to be also practical. You have to you have to work with it as well. It’s not just imagining that, you know, if I if I go meditate And if I believe there are guides or if I believe there’s angels or whatever, it’s gonna solve my world without you doing the work as well on yourself. A lot of people are coming to me where they’ve had they say they’ve had past life experiences or they say they’ve met a twin flame or they’ve met a soul mate. When some people come to me and they say, I’ve met a soul Agamata.

So this means I have to stay with this person for the rest of my life. Like, no. Actually, you might be meeting your soul mate, but some mates are coming, to stimulate some that’s happening within you, to help you with your growth to move on. Mhmm. And then you take it as that.

So I know this might sell selfish. I did sign on Instagram the other day actually. I was talking about self preservation. It’s not being selfish. It’s the self preservation is about looking at your own only.

And being aware that there’s individuals that are in your life in your soul pod, which is your family, connections your souls. I mean, the reason why they come in. I’ve done this, and I’ve written I did something on YouTube about this. The reason that your soul pod so if you have a friend that mirrors something called, reflecting back to you in conversation, and you’re not happy with it. You can say, I’ve had enough of that friend and you walk away from that friend.

Not as easy as that but to some degree. But if it’s a family member, your mother, your father, or a sibling, it’s very hard to walk away. So that’s why family, especially now that’s coming up and seeing that people having conversations or there’s subscription happening in their families because you cannot escape that problem because there is something that needs to be addressed in your own soul. There is something that you came back here before that you needed to learn from that particular member of family. So you’re not gonna be able to move away from that.

So what I am fighting right now is a lot of people are bringing up the fact of, yes, they think that they may have been with their mother in a past life that was their sister, whatever. And I help them to follow it back. So in cesstory, we look at the blood line to see what’s going on. You know, I’ve heard individuals wear there’s been horrific things going on within the family, and it repeats itself. Mhmm.

The individual sits in front of me. I I don’t you know, they don’t need to tell me I think I can feed it going on in in inside their energy or their body. Yes. And it also might go back to a past life or a relationship with individuals. So what I am finding right now is that I think what’s happened on the planet with, you know, we had that massive pandemic.

It’s affected everyone on the globe. Since having that is making people look at how they want to live their life. They’re questioning how or what doing a day. It’s they’re questioning, do I want the same job day in, day out? Do I wanna be in the same relationship, day in, day out?

It’s about yeah. As I say, someone said to me, well, it’s been selfish. It’s not a self preservation. So at the moment on the planet, leading up from well, leading after the endemic people are now looking at about their work, their lifestyle, and realizing life is too short. It can just change just like that.

Kristin Taylor
Yes. Yes. The word that comes up for me is that alignment Yes. That they’re really paying attention.

Anne Bayford
Yes.

Kristin Taylor
And it’s alignment with what they’re here to learn, experience, and some not a lessons, but joy and the expression of the gifts that they’re here to share.

Anne Bayford
Yeah. And it’s really by that alignment. What really helps is when you’re really authentic itself by when you’re doing something because you want to do it, not because that you think that you’re going to be pleasing somebody else, that they’re gonna love you more. Or they’re gonna listen to you more if you’re somebody else or, you know, if you’re an influencer and you’re maybe on Instagram or whatever and you’re not really living because you just wanna show your audience what you think they want to see. Yeah.

People can spill and see that. So the authenticity of being who you really you know, by going at how you want to look like, you know, there’s a lot of celebrities aren’t wearing the makeup. Now if they don’t wanna wear makeup, they wanna be themselves now. That’s great. Just And it’s healing.

Kristin Taylor
It’s healing for the rest of us to be like, oh, we can just be human. Yeah. You don’t have to be so perfect or whatever that ideal is.

Anne Bayford
That’s right.

Kristin Taylor
Time goes by so very, very quickly. I could listen to you for so long. I I have such brilliant guess. I feel like I say it all the time, but it’s so true with every 1 of them yourself included. Oh.

Yes. This was extraordinary. How do people learn more about you, get in contact with you, work with you?

Anne Bayford
Okay. Lovely. Thank you. So what happened was I channeled the information about Odyssey the platform. So it’s a platform sort of a website that we’ve created that there are a number of practitioners.

So what I have found over the years that it’s to be more so full or more in in tune with your soul. It’s about looking at where there are blockages, to look at your soul journey. And some people may need some assistance, and that’s absolutely funny. That’s all part of it. So we have therapists and we have, you know, coaches that help you to look at where you are on your journey, and I’m included in that where we really look at the soul What is it that you’re looking for?

How can we help you? And we then give you the tools. So there are classes there. There’s courses there. There’s free workshops.

There’s lots of information on our YouTube channel as well. So they can make that initial step by going to our website, which is www.odacytheplugs dotcom, where they can have a look at what the events are they’re on at the moment, and then also look at any work shops or classes. I have also my own website, which is www.andbayford.com, where they can find me directly. And we have a YouTube channel or to see the platform. I have a YouTube channel and Bayford, and there’s a soul pod quest podcast that we have as well.

So there’s there’s numerous ways of reaching out and contacting me where you’ll find out emails there and everything else that you might need.

Kristin Taylor
Oh my gosh. I am now as subscriber officially. I need to go with yeah. That sounds extraordinary. You have so much to teach, and I’m just incredibly grateful that you chose and said yes to spend any time with us.

So Yeah.

Anne Bayford
Thank you. Really welcome opportunity. Thank you. Has been absolutely lovely meeting today. It’s so

Kristin Taylor
connected. It’s lovely. Thank you. Thank you so much. Really appreciate it.

Anne Bayford
Thank you.
