If you ask Gordon Ellison how he became a deep trance channeler, he will tell you right away that the development of this ability arose through the help of his adopted father, who is also able to do this type of mediumship.
“I actually enhanced this ability through my adopted father, Cliff Preston who channels the Echo,” he said.
When I asked Cliff how he came to be a channeler he explained.
“In 1973, I was a factory supervisor in a very high-tension job. I decided to take a relaxation weekend course to help calm my nerves. During the relaxation/meditations on that weekend, I would come awake and have no recall of the meditations. Others were there talking about the nice ‘walk down the flowered path’ but I had just closed my eyes and re-opened them, and the time had passed without my knowledge.”
That year he said, he met a man named Michael Blake Reed, who channeld the Evergreens. Unfortunately, he has now passed over. However, Cliff said that after their meeting, he had “a powerful inner drive to learn” this skill so he could help others.
Michael “gave me a couple of sheets of paper that held the steps necessary to begin to learn how to achieve deep trance states. I practiced for about two years before actually attaining the deep trance, and have been helping people in every walk of life ever since all over Canada, the U.S.A. and some European countries.”
Formerly a sailor with the Canadian Navy, and then a stationary engineer and factory supervisor, Cliff said he returned to university in the late 1990’s at the age of 66. There he studied for his Bachelor of Hypnotherapy Degree, which he now holds. Cliff knew this degree would further help him in his quest to help others.
