As we climb a ladder of light intended to lead us toward knowledge of the mysteries, may you discover the riches that lie upon your personal pathway to God through the medium’s way. May this book shed some light upon your own inner quest.
Brian Robertson and Simon James are internationally recognised experts in their field. They travel the world as renowned exponents of a classical oral tradition of esoteric mediumship rooted in ancient knowledge, and offer an understanding of its foundations to a new generation of seekers within the spiritual experience.
The rare knowledge they possess is sadly in danger of being diluted and unwittingly distorted by the passing spiritual trends of the day and age. Consequently, their students and peers worldwide have long urged them to share their profound understanding of mediumship and its ancient mystical principles as a dynamic way of life for the modern world. “Sooner rather than later” has been the common cry; hence this book.
Although a great deal has been written about mediumship, spirituality and mysticism, much of the existing literature of the past is either outdated in its references or written in a style which the modern mind finds difficult to comprehend. Today, on the other hand, we often see hastily assembled partial truths offered in digestible bites for the quick gratification of the spiritual appetite. For this reason, Brian Robertson and Simon James offer the spiritual seeker a modern, down-to-earth perspective on the vital nature of mediumship as a pathway to a spiritual life in the 21st century. They take you back to the foundations of mediumistic and esoteric spirituality, to its truths.
Over the period of many years, Robertson and James have created a rich curriculum of classical study which lays the foundation for the healthy and well-rounded development of the medium. They have revitalised ancient knowledge, knowledge which has everything to do with the sacred art of mediumship but which was at risk of vanishing from view altogether.
Thanks to the work of these two remarkable teachers, our generation may once again tap into the deep reservoir of wisdom evoked by the Triads and the Archetypes, as was practised within our tradition. Aspects of these teachings are now being assimilated and shared by other practitioners and teachers around the world.
They sincerely hope that Magician to Mystic will nurture all who wish to understand more about the nature of mediumship, mysticism, and its spiritual roots. In so doing, they also hope to do away with the many outlandish misconceptions around mediumistic practice and bring its inherent naturalness into the light of day.
Joseph Campbell once said that myths are the “Literature of the Spirit”. They shine a light on the spiritual potential within every human being. The myths which have been selected speak to the soul with messages of wisdom, and in such a way as to rekindle that state of awe in which our souls thrive and breathe, and without which we cannot truly be aware of the presence of the Spirit.
Brian Robertson and Simon James trust that the riches contained in this book may awaken your curiosity and touch your heart.
If you are reading these words, it is possible that your soul may be ready to look more deeply than before at the nature of your life, and your mind and heart be willing to open to those truths which your spirit already knows.
