REVIEWS & ENDORSEMENTS
I do believe we are spiritual beings living in a human body, however it is sometimes so easy to forget that. I have taken courses and read many books and have been left with some big questions about mediumship, about our "spirit guides," about "blending / meditating / sitting in the power." I have had some experiences that I don't know are spiritual or not and wanted answers. One night, it seemed so random, the link to "Mediumship Within" by Chris Ratter showed up on my computer screen. For less that $5 on Kindle, I figured I'd buy it.
When I started reading it I was shocked (in a good way). The author found himself of a similar journey as myself. The book tells his personal story of how he first started believing in the Spirit World, to his journey of learning to connect with them and ultimately the career path he is now on. It is a marvelous and easy read and SO INSPIRATIONAL. If you are on the spiritual path (which I am guessing you are as you are reading this review) take a chance and purchase this book.
Here are some of the words that have made the most difference from me (excerpts from the book)...
"The people from the Spirit World are never going to harm anyone. They are love, nothing less, and they only want to bring that love to those of us on the material plane, together with the understanding that we are all connected through the love of Divine Spirit."
"If you accept, and allow spirit people to come into your life, it will become your greatest journey of awakening. The energy that they bring will touch your heart."
"People develop their gifts at different rates; your gift can only manifest itself when the time is right for you, and for the Spirit Realm."
"You must always be mindful of the fact that mediumship is not just a gift of communication. It is a contract to be of service to the Divine Creator.(remember the whole purpose of this work is to help others, not yourself)."
I must have 40 highlights in the book. I am so grateful the journey Chris Ratter has been on and how much insight and information he is giving me in my own journey. If this book calls to you, take a chance and read it. I am sure glad that I did!

5.0 out of 5 stars .
It took me several weeks to read this fabulous book because there is so much knowledge and information shared in it that I had to stop and digest before moving on. The book is very welcoming and the reader might almost feel he or she is sitting across the table from the author listening to him talk. The information and experiences shared are very helpful for anyone seeking the path to mediumship and beyond. 5 stars from me and I really look forward to more from this author. (I was also chuffed to receive the first signed copy when I attended a recent workshop)

I've just finished reading "Mediumship Within " by the amazing Chris Ratter. I am impressed by the down to earth approach to a subject not quite of this earth. It took a lot of the mystery surrounding mediumship and made it easy to understand. The practical exercises are tools that I have used and will continue to do so. I would highly recommend it as a great read for those who wish to pursue mediumistic studies and even for those who don't. Definitely a 5 star read

I have just finished reading this delightful book by Scottish Trance Medium Chris Ratter. Currently the only psychic surgeon residing in Scotland, Chris Ratter shares his personal experiences along with practical advice on developing trance mediumship.
Chris explains the different types of development circles and which ones are best suited for psychic healers. He graciously offers his expert tips on working with guides, avoiding pitfalls, and opening up to the gift of spiritual healing.
Easy to read and written in a friendly, approachable style, the author's anecdotes of his early years in development will intrigue and inspire you.
I highly recommend this book to those curious about developing their healing abilities. This book is suitable for beginners and intermediates in psychic development. ~ Gina Francesca, http://thefairyintuitive.blogspot.com/2016/08/mediumship-within-chris-ratter.html (Via NetGalley)
I have been fortunate enough to receive an advance copy of this book and wanted to take the time to provide a short summary and review of Mediumship Within.
For those of you who don't know, Chris Ratter is a Psychic Surgeon who is building a network of successful clinics throughout the UK, Southern Ireland and Europe on the basis of his reputation and the results attained by his healing team and himself. This book charts the story of his early involvement with Spirit and how even as a young child, he seemed to be unknowingly tutored by Spirit, presumably in preparation for the work that would come later in his adult years. It is an honest overview of the stages of development he went through telling many stories of his experiences with Spirit and what worked, and what didn't work for him as his faculties unfolded. It also includes an overview of some of the techniques and exercises that particularly worked for Chris, which could easily be used by the readers in their own development.
Mediumship Within really is about the unfolding of Chris' faculties but it also includes some wonderful stories of his relationship with Spirit and some of the remarkable healings that have been achieved. It is written in a pragmatic, humble manner with no pretensions or ego; anybody with an interest in working with Spirit or healing will, I'm sure, find this to be an honest and heart-warming insight into a remarkable journey. ~ Dmac17, Amazon
Now I know we all are aiming for better in our daily lives, which is why it's important to trust you (the inner you) and take the time to develop spiritually. We are designed to be of great use by our divine creator and to live a life of peace and happiness. Buy, read, and pass it down to the next person in the family who has great interest, some people may not have a clue that they are spiritual, but you the elder passing it on will see clarity and know when the time is right to pass on these books of wisdom. I rated 5 stars because it's clear to understand and learn ~ Shamara Tamara Pollard, NetGAlley
I enjoyed the details of the authors early experiences, and I didn't realise there were so many courses, groups and workshops you can take on the subject. I am surprised there are so many rules governing the practise, and wonder what the spirits think about this ? I strongly believe that we all have the ability to heal ourselves by connecting directly to the source. If you do not have faith in yourself you can always go via the spirits world. It is all good, and many people find huge comfort in good mediums. The author is obviously gifted in this area and I wish him well in using his talents to bring comfort, hope and healing to his patients. ~ JC Cross, NetGalley to Goodreads https://www.goodreads.com/review/show/1692894746?book_show_action=false
