Lin David Martin has been functioning as a teacher and channel for Spirit for over 35 years. His primary focuses and abilities as a teacher are through the gifts of inspirational speaking, guided meditation, healing, clairvoyance and deep trance channeling. His work has taken him all over the globe, and his greatest joy is in helping people to awaken to their own spiritual gifts and sense of connection to the Divine. He also enjoys sharing artistic expression through 'inspirational painting' as a catalyst for change and awakening to joy.
His early training was based on the work of Edgar Cayce, Paramahansa Yogananda and Carl Jung. After 3 years of deep personal search he connected with a new age center in Phoenix, Arizona. This center formed the home base for his spiritual training over a 15 year period. It was during the next 8 years, while working at the center, that he studied with an American Indian Spirit Teacher named Crowfoot, channeled through Dr. Richard Ireland.
Richard Ireland had a wide range of Spiritual/Psychic Gifts. His profoundly moving lectures, and demonstrations of x-ray clairvoyance (he could see through physical matter) helped convince thousands (yes, really thousands) of people as to the validity of life-after-death and the extra sensory powers of the mind. For Richard, the reality of vast realms of Spirit and this physical dimension were equally real. He could also travel-out-of-the-body at will.
Richard’s deeply compassionate nature was present in both everyday life and in his teaching capacity as a vehicle for Spirit. The years of training that Lin received were deeply influenced by Richard’s strong example of psychic talents and deep understanding of Spirit. Richard did not foster an attitude of being placed on a pedestal, and when in everyday (so-called ‘normal consciousness’) he did not try to convince anyone of his spiritual accomplishments. But when he was demonstrating any aspect of Spirit presence, he gave his all. A true example of ‘giving everything to everyone’.
Crowfoot, an American Indian Spirit Teacher, was one of the teachers that manifested through Richard in trance. It was with Crowfoot that Lin felt a deep affinity toward the universal wisdom and compassion that Crowfoot manifested as a teacher. The 7 years of weekly trance classes taught by Crowfoot (through Richard in trance) felt to Lin like ‘coming home’. Much more than just the words, the high strong spiritual energy behind the words had a way of amplifying the meaning of the teaching and made deeper realities absolutely present. It was truly an experience of being taught on many levels of reality at once.
Lin always felt that Crowfoot gave his students the ‘hub of the wheel. And they could travel out from the center on any spoke they wanted, and it would always connect with the Whole.’ This metaphor is in reference to studying the wisdom literature of any of the world’s strong spiritual traditions. They all point in the same direction and have a high clear spiritual energy running through them.
Crowfoot's teachings were anchored in spiritual awakening with a grounded and practical approach - a solid base. The healing energy started early to flow through Lin and so did the inspirational speaking, both being appreciated and utilized within the organisation.
During these years Lin at one point wrote a masters thesis based on the life of the American psychologist and philosopher William James. James is popularly noted for his pragmatic approach to life. The thesis focused on the intensely personal aspect of James' life, which spanned decades of research into parapsychology. Much of his later philosophical orientation was grounded in the work with both the British and the American Psychical Research Societies. James for many years provided some of the most interesting research materials for these two societies; based on his work with some very fine American mediums.
Lin's main focus during those years was an intense desire to 'wake up', and the deep meditation space that he invited, together with intense openings of the energy flow, propelled his psychic and spiritual development. Even though he had a deep desire to function as a healer and teacher, he resisted the label psychic. It was after a strong experience of channeling that he understood that healing and psychic activities stem from the same Source. This experience triggered his work with clairvoyance and then 2 years later (1970) with trance channeling. He continued to work at this center until 1977, when he began to travel extensively in the US. In 1979 his teaching took him to Europe.
He currently resides in Norway. Sometimes he teaches with other psychics, healers and teachers.Many times these psychic/healers have studied with Lin, in the early stages of their development. As a teacher and mentor, Lin has assisted in the development of their own talents. Resulting in the creation of a spiritual 'ministry' of their own. Of course, the resulting form of their development has become unique to each of these persons.
God/Goddess, the deep inspiration of the Spirit, desires to fulfill us all and each in the full blossoming of the Gifts of the Spirit. In whatever form our individuality is expressing, the Universe wants us to be co-creators. All becoming part of the mighty symphony, or the Joy of Awakening, that collectively all of Humanity is beginning to awaken to.
