I was a skeptic who bought a book about Edgar Cayce because of a TV interview with Jess Stearn, its author. Many books, plus hours and hours of meditation later, I discovered I was unexpectedly a medium. I then studied mediumship in Spiritualist classes, became credentialed as a medium and now both do readings and teach the subject worldwide online & off. The book tells the story of my journey from skepticism to becoming a medium. There are lessons in a textbook section plus activities to help the reader learn mediumship in a work book section, too.
