A Practical Guide for Developing Mediumship
Kay Reynolds is a medium, public speaker, and author of the new book, The Evidential Medium: A Practical Guide for Developing Mediumship. In The Evidential Medium, she shares her journey of training to be a medium, along with practical exercises to help you unlock the ancient tools of mediumship you hold deep within your soul.
Kay trained as a medium at the prestigious Arthur Findlay College, the world’s foremost college for the advancement of spiritualism and psychic sciences, under the mentorship of Mavis Pittilla, one of the college’s longest-standing tutors. The College’s tutors are renowned as the best in the world, and Kay was fortunate enough to study there extensively for seven years.
Kay holds an M.Ed. and has twenty-nine years’ teaching experience. She has taught students from grade school right into adulthood. In her work as a medium, Kay utilizes all her educational training as well as the public speaking skills she gained at countless education conventions.
The Evidential Medium is a self-help book—with a twist of memoir—and was written for everyone interested in learning about being a medium. Sharing the highs and lows of her own mediumship journey, Kay takes the reader on a roller coaster ride. What went wrong? What steps did she take to overcome the many hurdles that arise for every student of mediumship? Kay’s stories are interspersed with practical exercises so that students can meet the challenges of mediumship head on. Reading this book and doing the exercises will help you avoid the setbacks and obstacles that Kay overcame to make her mediumship extraordinary.
Learning to be a medium is difficult, so Kay uses the “KISS method: Keep It Simple, Silly” in her teaching and writing. There are no sure or true ways to teach mediumship. Every individual is different and much of what you learn comes down to you, the medium. Most of the work students of mediumship do is “inner work,” meaning that you must go within and heal yourself from the inside out, deepening your connection to the God Source as you do so. As a teacher of mediumship, Kay’s role is to guide you through the process. She facilitates your transformation, pointing out your strengths and weaknesses—and giving you a step-by-step process to help you reach your goals.
Those readers who are teachers of mediumship or administrators of mediumship programs know that teaching mediumship is not easy. In this book, Kay shares the tricks of the trade, breaking down the teaching curriculum and exercises into incremental phases that even the newest learner can understand and follow.
What sets Kay’s book apart from other books on mediumship? Kay knows how to teach and how to relate complex information in simple terms. She understands the mindset and needs of her readers and ensures that those needs are met. Using graphics, charts, and stories—all the while poking fun at her own triumphs and failures—Kay keeps it real and relevant, inspiring readers to rise above the trials and tribulations and to keep going on their mediumship path.
Aspiring mediums are always searching for a safe environment in which to explore the world of mediumship more deeply. Kay reassures her readers that “You are not alone.” Those thoughts that race through your mind—thoughts of disillusionment, disappointment, and discouragement—have raced through the minds of countless other mediumship students too. Kay offers you a sense that you belong to a wider mediumship community, and a sense of comfort when the going gets rough. Kay is a cheerleader, a mentor, a guide—and her words are a soft, reassuring whisper that says, “Keep going, you’re doing great.”
