About – John Culbertson – The American Mystic


John Culbertson has helped thousands of people around the world. Now he wants to help you.


“When I was a young child my mother abandoned me, leaving me with my great-grandmother. I grew up in my great-grandmother’s house. A house that was filled with paranormal activity. Between the spirits and poltergeists in the house and my great-grandmother weaving stories of our family’s mysterious connection to witchcraft, I got a crash course in what’s beyond the veil. As a teenager, life was exceptionally hard for a number of reasons. I found myself spending a great deal of time in my bedroom, speaking with angels and spiritual guides. In my late teens and early twenties I studied the psychology of human behavior and started working with a number of exceptional individuals to hone my psychic abilities and mystical knowledge. The list of people and organizations I’ve personally studied under is huge and includes: The Academy of Remote Viewing, Craig Hamilton Parker, Sandy Anastasi, John Maerz, Mic McManus, Jason Oliver, The Rosicrucians AMORC, ASTARA, The Freemasons, The University of Metaphysics, Steve Serr, WitchSchool, and Ocean Seminary College. Over nearly the last twenty years I have used this information along with my natural connection to my spiritual guides to advise, coach, guide, and counsel people from around the world. I’ve had the pleasure of doing radio and having my articles appear in various magazines and throughout the internet world. I even worked for California Psychics on two separate occasions (known for approving only 2% of their applicants) as Psychic Hayden and Psychic Julius. Today, I still offer private sessions with the intention of providing comfort, love, support, and guidance to those who ask.” ~John Culbertson
