It wasn’t until he was 24, when a friend’s brother appeared at his bedside in the middle of the night that his Spiritual gifts were re-awakened, later learning that the friend’s brother who had appeared had tragically died that night in a fire. This tragic event led Gordon along with a friend to attend a spiritualist church and it was during the service that Gordon was told that he would one day be speaking from the ‘platform’. This was the start of over 15 years of study and practice as he went on to develop his outstanding abilities as a medium or messenger from the spirit world under the tutelage of some of the greatest legends of the Scottish spiritualist churches. He developed in a mediumship circle run by the extraordinary Mrs. Primrose, an inspirational figure in Scottish spiritualism and he became a close friend of the legendary Albert Best, who is widely acknowledged as one of the best mediums of the last century. Gordon has developed his own unique style of teaching.
