The Temple Dancer by Eunice Attwood

The story of my development as a medium/clairvoyant, from the early days when I suffered from depression and mental health issues, to the present day.

As a child I saw and heard spirits, and knew things a normal child could not have possible known.
After many years of terrifying experiences, I suffered a mental breakdown. I had no-one to help me as my mother told me I was just imagining things. I became very isolated and lonely as a child and grew up thinking I was insane. In my late twenties - during the breakdown, I began floating out of my body and came under attack from unwanted entities.
A friend took me to a spiritualist church where I saw spirits standing around the room, and felt like I had come home.
Over the last thirty years my clientele has grown significantly, with clients from over 35 countries coming to see me for help. I became more deeply involved with mysticism as years went by, with a strong desire to know God and the progress of the soul. This is now my main focus, rather than spiritualism. The Temple Dancer is the story of my life thus far.

    Dear Eunice,
    You are very welcome. I think everyone wonders about the afterlife and such, so, to discover your book and read the brilliant writing, it was not just inspiring, but thrillind as well. Best of luck with it.

    Dear Eunice, The ‘Temple Dancer’ was a fascinating read. In spite of the piece being autobiographical, I was pleasantly surprised by the fact that it read so much like fiction. I really did not know what to expect from the title and cover, although the long pitch gave me some idea. The opening chapter was a revelation. The writing flowed effortlessly and not one sentence required a second read. What’s even more commendable is that in spite of the conspicuous ...

    Book Cover: Not bad. It doesn’t stand out, but for the genre it’s all about who it is. So if it’s about Obama. We want to see a picture of Obama. The thing that I do like about it is that it’s simple and I could easily guess what genre it is. Title: Doesn’t stand out but makes you think who in darn hell is this temple dancer? Pitch: The words: ‘suffered’ and ‘depression’ stood out. Many people like to ...

    Dear Eunice, I read a few chapters of The Temple Dancer some time ago, six starred and shelved it on the strength of your story telling ability. I just read the first four chapters of Thomas Fairchild and unfortunately that's all the time i have for now, but i will return, as i think it's one of the best children's stories here. It's inspirational, full of goodness and great advice for any human, child or adult. I liked the explanation ...

    Hello , a very interesting first chapter about psychic experiences , I've had plenty of them myself over the last twenty years , but only rarerely get a chance to talk about them to other people unless its a cut and dried experience , it can be hard to convince people . I'm sorry that your childhood was so distressed ,but glad that you have managed to find some resolution to the problem . That vision of the hare is ...

    The Temple Dancer (on Chapter 1-3) Eunice, I’m biased in favour of your book as I love everything connected with clairvoyants. I’ve always wondered how you see the world. This is not so enjoyable perhaps when it comes to evil entities. Well, anyway, I anticipate enjoying you book. Chapter One “I always felt ‘different’, but never understood why” – this is perhaps the sentence that is appropriate to all clairvoyants - they are different from the rest. To tell you ...

    This opens in a tightly written, conversational manner. Though this is far from my typical read, your voice drew me right into it, and I found myself reading with interest. The premise is also intriguing. After you described the first incident, I wanted to hear about more. Nice hook! You held my interest throughout each conflict in the opening chapter. While it did jump around a bit, I found each experience fascinating. The writing in this is polished, and it ...

    My god what a life you've had. I've read the first two chapters and they are a rich foundation for the reader to feel the mountains, seas and skies of your heart. You open much to us, let us in and help us see through eyes most of us will never acquire. I heard the same loud steps when I was nine, which stood the hair on my arms as I was reading. Beautifully written and honest. I can't wait ...

    Hi Eunice, I really enjoyed the opening chapter here. I personally find Psychic phenomena fascinating. I think it’s the fact the someone experience and understands the unknown, we all just want as much information as we can get. As for the writing style, I quite like it. I almost feel like I’m sitting beside you having a cup of tea, chatting away as you tell your story. It’s a unique approach that works well in this autobiography. Although the plot ...

    Dear Eunice, Psychic phenomena has always amazed me. I have purchased everyone of Silvia Brown's books, and i have looked for yours on Amazon but can't find it. I have no idea if there are any typos in your writing, i was too intent on reading your story to notice any. Totally captivating read, a book i will have in my library at home as soon as HP takes notice and publishes it. You should be celebrating your uniqueness, you're ...

    Hahaha!! What an awesome story Eunice!! I just read through the first chapter so far, and I can relate to certain bits of it... I used to live in a small town, and I've been accused of being possessed by Satan by seven church leaders (priests, pastors, ministers).... Seriously. Once I had this whole church believe that I was possessed by the spirit of Jezebel and they actually had meetings about this behind my back. It absolutely devestated me at ...

    Dear Eunice
    I live not far from where you were born. I enjoyed the account of your discovery of clairvoyance. It sets me into fear at the begging seeing all the spirits. You have a natural gift and masive responsibility with it. I admire you. One day I would love to try regression myself. You tell your story interestingly immediately drawing your reader into your life and gradually exposing your childhood.

    Best of luck

    Dear Eunice, "I became more deeply involved with mysticism as years went by, with a strong desire to know God and the progress of the soul," - your life is daunting but has lot for many who don’t know God. I but become born-again Christian on 13 March 2006, not because I believed in God or believed for certain that God existed, but because I was going through, so far, the most stressful situation in my life. Since then, I ...
