on becoming a medium

The Gateway bridges the duality between the illusion and actuality, the landscape of becoming a medium.
The Gateway by Krista Stanley

a call to attention

As a kid, I had a random ability to just know things. Specifically, this is called clear-knowing or claircognizance. As I matured, I explored this unusual way of knowing. Thus, began an epic journey traversing the varied landscapes of consciousness, and to becoming a medium.

Surprisingly, this clear-knowing is a call-to-attention rather than an information download. It focuses attention on information potentials rather than definitive understanding. Long story short, we are tuning devices, and we use our five embodied senses and our sixth intuitive sense to commune with a magnanimous and intelligent multiverse.

a curious seeker

While researching my doctoral dissertation, a friend of a friend of a friend told me about mediumship—the ability to access “Spirit” at will to retrieve verifiable information. In general, my experience with “access” was random and sporadic. I was not aware you could develop this skill. In effect, my curiosity prompted my pursuit to learn this skill first-hand.

a studied medium

Fortuitously, my experiential training dovetailed with my academic endeavors, which included sacred practice, mysticism, metaphysical philosophy, transpersonal psychology, archetypal astrology, and scientific inquiry – particularly a quantum understanding of consciousness and information transfer.

Consequently, this led to a master and doctoral degree in Wisdom Studies, and practical and teaching certification as a trance medium, evidential medium, Active Dreamwork practitioner/teacher, consulting hypnotist, and kairomancer (one who navigates via synchronicity and meaningful correspondences).

Mediumship requires a clear mind, direct intention, a fearless approach and a deep desire to service the health of humanity. This seems a tall order until you step on the path. Then, you find assistance, compassion and caring all along the way.
