Channelled Message From George Knottesford Fortescue

Had an interesting reading at Clearly Destiny when I gave one of our very first students a spiritual reading.  This was someone, who although read tarot cards, felt it was time to start fully embracing her psychic and spiritual journey.  Since then she has gone on to become an Angelic Reiki Teacher and healer. I invited spirit to draw close and share something that she might need to know at this time.  A gentleman came forward and said.

“Fortescue is my name.  You won’t know me amongst your friends or family.   I come around you when you are working.   When I was alive I worked as a librarian.  I loved books and read as many as I could. I learned a lot about many different things. I compartmentalised information so that when people came into the library and asked my recommendation of a book that gave information on the subject they were interested in, I was able to direct them to the right part of the library and even to the shelf where the appropriate books would be.   

I am part of your collective and hold the library of information you have collected over many lifetimes.  I have compartmentalised this information and when you are doing your readings or giving healing I give you such information as is necessary from your library.”

It was like a lightbulb moment for my sitter as she recalled saying things to clients and not knowing where the information had come from but at the same time knowing it was accurate.

Fascinated by what this gentleman had said she googled Fortescue and came up with the following information which is abridged considerably, however for further information cut and paste the following link.  The Times/1912/Obituary/George Knottesford Fortescue


We regret to announce the death, which took place on Saturday, of Mr. George Knottesford Fortescue, Keeper of the Printed Books at the British Museum since 1899.

It was the inquiries of readers which suggested to him the compilation of his first subject index which has made the name of Fortescue so widely and honourably known. The primary of the object of the index being to assist readers in the library of the British Museum. The great usefulness of these indexes is acknowledged, not only by readers at the British Museum, but by all who use books of bibliographical reference.

Mr. Fortescue had a high sense of his professional obligations as a librarian, and in a long and honourable career proved himself a useful public servant. He had a wide knowledge of books, and was always most ready to impart that knowledge. A man of sunny good nature and genial disposition, modest and unassuming in manner, he was universally beloved and respected.
