#104 Crystal Compton: Dominion In The World Of Spirit
Johnny Burke: Welcome to Closer to Venus, I’m Johnny Burke. And today’s guest is Crystal Anne Compton. She is a spiritual teacher, intuitive channel, and founder of the Light Shine Lab, a growing online community dedicated to spiritual learning. Today we will be talking about her journey of reclaiming her intuitive gifts and how she loves teaching about what she calls dominion in the world of spirit.
Crystal, welcome to the program.
Crystal Anne Compton: thank you so much. I’m excited to be here.
Johnny Burke: Being excited is always good. You had some childhood psychic experiences, which is pretty common amongst intuitives, is that what set you on the spiritual path or was it something else?
Crystal Anne Compton: Well, I’m sure that it was part of it. I was really lucky though, because when I started having, spiritual, or paranormal experiences as a very young child, I would go to my parents .My parents were also pretty intuitive and psychic and so they never really told me that what I was perceiving was wrong or of the devil, or just my imagination, or these are just your imaginary friends. They kind of had a framework around what was happening to me, and so they were able to help me navigate that world. Because of that, I grew up just more comfortable generally in the world of spirit, not a lot of fear, and kind of felt free to explore
Johnny Burke: So, in other words, when you were young and you were in school and you knew the bus was coming around the corner, you knew better than to bring that up. You just thought I’ll keep that to myself.
Crystal Anne Compton: Well, you know, I was born and raised in Hawaii and my father was born and raised in Hawaii. My grandfather was a legislator in Hawaii. We were on the outer islands as well. The outer islands are anywhere other than Oahu and Honolulu. And so we were a pretty mystical kind of people generally. My father believed in the Hawaiian gods. My mother had grown up Catholic. so even if I had said something, the buses coming, I don’t know that a lot of the kids would’ve had a problem with it, because that’s just kind of the culture that we grew up in.
My daughter was very intuitive as a child as well. But she went to parochial school, I think K through six. And yeah, you just kind of have to hide that under a bushel, if you will. So she didn’t go around talking about it. And I’m sure if I grew up in the mainland as it were, I would not have either. But in Hawaii, that was just part of the experience.
Johnny Burke: Definitely a different culture. And it seems as though in some cases, the gifts, the psychic abilities, sometimes run through the bloodline, like you mentioned your parents had it and maybe your grandparents or not?
Crystal Anne Compton: I’ve heard tales of my maternal grandmother being a very woo-woo kind of a person. My mother told me this story about waking up in the middle of the night. She was hearing something in the living room, so she walked out, and my grandmother was in the doorway with her hands extended calling the aliens. But that could be because she was an alcoholic too. I’m not sure, but I don’t know about the bloodline for me. I do think that there’s something to be grateful for not locking down a child’s experience, whether that’s just the imagination or whether that’s the experiences that they’re having and instead just supporting them. So that was really helpful. And I think because of that, my intuition, my psychic abilities continue to grow. But there were other factors as well, besides just my parents for sure.
Johnny Burke: Now you were brought up in Hawaii, which has obviously a different culture than what we have here in the States. But was that more of like a fundamentalist Christian upbringing, how did that, impact your abilities?
So, yeah, my father believed in, Hawai-iana which is just the culture and spirituality of ancient Hawaii. My mother was a Catholic, and she left Catholicism when she was 12. My parents, for as supportive as they were of my intuition and my spirituality, were very dysfunctional people generally. My father was a substance abuser of the highest order, and he was also a very violent and abusive person. My mother kind of just fell into the role of an enabler and the abused person, and so of my own volition around the age of 12 or 13, I converted to Pentecostal Christianity and this was like the scandal of the family.
My father, for as much as he got wrong in his life, was highly, highly intelligent, photographic memory, read all the time, and was highly educated. So when I became what he called a subversive by becoming a Christian, it just threw him all the way off and we ended up having a very antagonistic relationship. For my part of it, I was looking for some kind of structure because truly I grew up in a wild way. When I say I was in the heart of darkness, I mean it, because I was growing up in a town called Volcano. On the big island where I could see the volcano erupting from my backyard. We didn’t have electricity; we didn’t have running water. My father was on a rampage every night, and we were just trying to survive. So at the time, my innocent friend invites me to church. I’m like all in. Like, give me some order, give me some instruction, give me something that I can hold onto. And I very, very quickly converted to Christianity.
But it’s Pentecostal Christianity, they’re very, very charismatic. And I would say to you also very psychic. You know, they’re being slain in the spirit. They’re speaking in tongues, they’re healing, they’re prophesying. So my psychic abilities could kind of fit in Pentecostalism, not all but somewhat. So I was able to kind of exist and also be psychic.
Johnny Burke So, yeah, very interesting about the, Pentecostal, branch of the church. So I’m just wondering where I got that fundamentalist label from.
Crystal Anne Compton: Well because they are somewhat fundamentalists. Because they’re literalists. Every single word in the Bible is true. But like my journey through Christianity started in Pentecostalism, and I ended up though in a more fundamentalist evangelical church,
Johnny Burke: So that’s how that developed and that was your path. It sounds like you were looking for your own truth and the reasons why the world is madness and if there is a reason for that at all. So at first, the Pentecostal church was a haven for you, but then you went from there to a more evangelical type of church. So why did you choose that?
Crystal Anne Compton: I think it was probably just where I ended up geographically. The Pentecostal church happened on the big island. I ended up moving to Oahu, finding a different church that wasn’t necessarily Pentecostal, still charismatic, but very literalist, very patriarchal. it was just kind of my journey from one church into another church.
But in each church where I found myself, I always felt called to participate at a higher level than most people you’d say. Like I was a missionary a few times. I was a singer in the worship team. I was a Bible study teacher, and I was always fascinated with this idea of a personal connection with God, because something about that felt very Intimate, very dynamic to me. And of course, that harkens back to like when I’m three or four talking to tree people, that was very intimate, very dynamic. So I was always interested to know God more and that was my journey through it. But I didn’t stay there forever. I had to leave ultimately.
Johnny Burke: When people have psychic abilities or people that are just hypersensitive, do you think they have a natural inclination to find source, to find God, to find reasons for existence? Or is that not necessarily true?
Crystal Anne Compton: I wouldn’t be surprised. I think when you say, extrasensory, it’s just a heightened ability to sense, feel and know. And when you’re in that energetic predisposition, I think you do lend yourself to connect to spirit just deeply and generally. So I think so. But having said that, I’ve known a lot of psychic and intuitive people who were not very godly and not very nice, but still had the gifts,
Johnny Burke: But still have the gifts. Yes. Okay. So at what point did your ability start to ramp up? I believe you went to psychic school. Was that right at the beginning or was that later on?
Crystal Anne Compton: So yeah, that didn’t come until later on. I stayed in the Christian faith for about a decade because of something that happened with my pastor at the very end, and this was after my father died. He did something that was just really inappropriate, and we won’t go into it or anything, but it was like such a clarifying moment for me.
And That was the first time that I started to wonder what is this all about? what am I doing here? What does my church actually represent? And I ended up leaving the church when I was in my mid-twenties what I call roaming around in deserts for quite some time. As soon as I left the church, I was overtaken by fear because I was afraid I was becoming what the Bible calls an apostate, somebody who backslides and goes to the devil. So I spent some time just trying to be okay not being in church anymore. And then I started to get curious. About that little girl who used to talk to tree people and see like shapes and colors around people and who used to know when her father was going to come home three hours before he got there and that he was going to fight with my mom.
I started to wonder about that, and I formed an intention to get back to that. And in doing so, I believe I opened a door or a pathway back to it and I also started reading. I’m sure I wasn’t actually illiterate, but I was not a smart person. I grew up in public schools in Hawaii. I barely graduated. But as soon as I opened books up and I started reading, something happened with my capacity and intelligence, like I just absorbed it all like a sponge. And it started in terms of metaphysics, it started with Edgar Cayce, and I liked Cayce because he was also a fundamentalist Christian. He was also somebody who believed in the Bible, believed in God, and when he started channeling about reincarnation, it absolutely scandalized him. Almost locked it down and stopped, but he had the bravery to continue. I loved reading his channeled information, and that was the beginning of my journey back to my intuition, which ultimately culminated in me going to psychic school.
Johnny Burke: Cayce was called the sleeping prophet. He had something like 14,000 cases and probably is not only one of the best, but one of the most confirmed psychics. I think he used to go to sleep and put himself in a trance and basically would tell the person, the sitter about their past lives, right?
Crystal Anne Compton: Yes. And also their medical information. He would channel diagnoses, but also treatments and remedies. He’s called the father of holistic medicine.I actually went to the A.R.E., which is his foundation, and back in the thirties, forties, and fifties, he built a hospital to treat people with his holistic remedies, and he was an amazing person.
He was channeling, who I believe was the Archangel Michael, but he never charged for anything. He worked himself into the ground. In fact, some of his channeled readings admonished him and said, you got to stop working so much. You got to stop giving all of this away. But he never did because he was just in service to other people. He was just a really good person and also very psychic.
Johnny Burke: So that had a pretty big impact on your development, and I guess kind of gave you license to move forward on your path, and you developed at some point a theory of dominion, which you claim that it’s the only psychic protection that you’ll ever need. A very, very important, thing to know for anybody who is thinking about taking the path of the medium or the intuitive. There’s a lot of, apparently beings, I’ve been told over and over again out there that do not have our best interest in mind, and we have to be careful. Tell us a little bit about when that theory came to fruition. How you designed it, how you created it.
Crystal Anne Compton: Well, it starts when I first left, and I was in that state of fear. But I was also opening up my intuitive faculties again, but I was in fear. And fear is a frequency, fear is an energy, and it is a creative one. You hear about the law of attraction and the teaching is that we always attract what or who we are or according to who we are. So I noticed that I was under spiritual attack. I would be attacked by shadow people. I would have nightmares and I would wake up and I would feel pressure on my chest. I had so many different experiences that I almost went back to church. Two things happened that changed that because I was under, what I would say was a constant spiritual attack. And I didn’t know why, I have a theory now. And so the first thing I did was without going back to church, I just called on the name of Jesus. I was being attacked by a shadow person, and I called on the name of Jesus, and immediately my sleep paralysis broke, and the shadow person went away. I had always been told in church there is power, power, wonder, and working power in the name. I noticed that it was the energy and the vibration of the name, and I noticed anytime I felt afraid or anytime I felt like something was about to happen, because I could always feel it, there was always a ramp up in the energy, oh, something’s about to happen, and I would call upon this name, the energy would go away.
That got me to thinking about who I was in relation to Jesus, in relation to God, in relation to the creator, and to make a long story short, what I discovered was, when I was able to be in a fearless frequency, like not afraid, I noticed they didn’t bother me. And as I was continuing to study, I was continuing to learn about spirituality, and I was continuing to meditate and discover things for myself. I felt in myself empowered. Now, Jesus, said when he was alive, he said, you are all gods. And in saying this, he was saying, wake up, you are way more powerful than you think you are. You’re not a victim to this life. You are all gods. You came here to be God-like.
So dominion is the energetic disposition of being fearless and standing in your own divinity because here’s what I know happens, and I can see this also clairvoyantly. When I am standing in my divinity, which is my dominion, the entire world of Spirit knows that I am, and recognizes it. When I am not in my dominion, when I am in a state of fear, that same ecosystem notices that I’m in fear, and it’s only when I’m in fear or weakness or anxiety that spirits attempt to attack. But when they know that I know who it is that I am spiritually?
I used to have so many paranormal experiences and many of which were attacks. And now some 25 years later, it is crickets in my house. I am never attacked. The last time a shadow person ran up on me was probably three years ago in this house. And while it startled me, it was maybe three to five seconds before I got right back into that dominion, and I’m like, oh, we’re not doing this today. Get on out of here. Just like Jesus would cast out the demons, right? Just like Jesus would command the spirits to do what he wanted them to do. When we get into the space of that, they absolutely will obey. So that is what Dominion is. Here’s the thing; protection, there’s all kinds of ways to do it. I think Sage works. I think you could put out some crystals that work, but nothing works better than knowing who it is that you are-
Johnny Burke: really?
Crystal Anne Compton: in your divinity.
Johnny Burke: Shadow people; are they Earthbound spirits, are they mischievous spirits? Are they some kind of variant of that or what are they?
Crystal Anne Compton: Well, it’s tricky because when Earthbound spirits or ghosts attempt to materialize, the first phases of that are shadow or mist- that doesn’t make them a shadow being though, that just means that’s part of their materialization process. A shadow being is an entirely different type of entity. It is my personal belief that they’ve never been human. I don’t even think they’re from our universal architecture like we have a universe. It consists of a certain number of dimensions. Each dimension is governed by a specific frequency. I think they come from a parallel space. As I was kind of going through this progressive season of attacks, I would notice when they were in my room, and I would feel them and I would connect with their energy.
And the energy just feels like absolute terror, just absolute fear. And at one point I asked myself, am I in a state of terror or fear, or is that just what their signature is? And I was kind of able to uncouple the two and not necessarily be afraid and just recognize, oh, that’s just how they feel when they’re around us. But to answer your question, I feel like they’re largely malevolent. We could talk about demons. I feel like they’re on the spectrum of demonic. I don’t think they’re good.
I did have a conversation with somebody recently though, who had an encounter with a spirit person, and it was actually a good one. I’m not the end-all, be all of the truth on this subject. None of us really know, but my personal feeling is, yeah, they’re up to no good.
Johnny Burke: That’s what it sounds like. So from your theory of dominion, you think that’s probably the best psychic protection from any type of those beings?
Crystal Anne Compton: Absolutely. It’s been demonstrated. I see it, it works. When you have nothing to fear they cannot scare you and they don’t stay for long because they get off on scaring you. That’s what they want.
Johnny Burke: A theory that was brought up recently in, a show that’s going to come out pretty soon is that even the evil or the malevolent elements of the universe are governed by God, governed by divine law. Do you agree with that or is that neither here nor there?
Crystal Anne Compton: Well, when you say governed by, I would say must adhere to the universal infrastructure of.
I think, created by God, whether initially in that form or after evolution takes place through creation. Whether they change and become this thing. Nonetheless, they have to adhere to the way God has created this universe.
Johnny Burke: That’s what I was trying to say, but divine law does imply an architecture. It’s like building a machine; probably not a very good analogy, but you get the meaning. I’ve never heard that before. I don’t really like to bring up these types of things. But if someone’s going to bring it up, it’s important to know that all beings out there, it’s not all good and bliss- whoever they’re created by.
Crystal Anne Compton: Right? I think that, if you read The Kybalion, which is a hermetic book, they talk about the law of polarity and how everything is really just one thing. We’re all just one. Right. We’ve heard this concept, but in the one, there’s a spectrum. There’s this side of the one, and there’s a side of the one just like hot and cold. It’s the same thing. It’s just a gradation, it’s just a temperature. And so in the one, you have that which exists in the love and the light and the bliss, but then you have the other side of that in the other polarity, and you have what we would call darkness. The good news is that the light is stronger, and the good news is that the closer you get to God, the more power you actually have.
It’s all the same. It’s all one, it’s all part of the same thing.
Johnny Burke: I’ve heard that many, many times. It’s still kind of a hard thing for a lot of us to get our heads around- oneness, there is no separation. And I think it’s, interesting that, given your path into the different types of churches that you went to, now that you’ve left the church, you still talk about Jesus and you still talk about God, that kind of dynamic. Do you think that could possibly narrow the gap between the mystical world and the religious structure that we’re brought up with where we can say there is some overlap? There are some things in the Bible that are spiritual and mystical. With your abilities, do you feel that gives you some kind of insight into why things are the way they are?
Crystal Anne Compton: Are you talking about why things are the way, are they are in the world? or why things…
Johnny Burke: In the world.
Crystal Anne Compton: Yes. when you work with your intuition, your innate gifts, and talents, you don’t need to have a bloodline. We are all born with this, and we can turn on those lights in our psychic house anytime. But when you are actively working with these faculties, then yeah, you can connect to what’s happening right now. You can go to the deeper levels or the higher levels. You can also connect to what’s happening in the future.
Now, in the future, it’s a little tricky because it’s kind of fluid. Timelines are fluid. Nothing is fixed. Something can change tomorrow if we make a different choice collectively today. But I do think if you are intuitive and using it, you have access to more information than the person who is not .
Johnny Burke: That’s what my intuition tells me, but I’m not on that level. It’s just a gut feeling that when I hear people talk about certain abilities, it’s just a knowing instead of just speculating. They have some kind of inclination towards understanding something. It’s hard for me to describe it because I don’t have those abilities, but it’s just something that I’ve noticed over the past couple of years when people talk about certain things and I ask, “how did you know that?” And they just say,” I just know.”
Crystal Anne Compton: I hear what you’re saying, but I would say that you are probably fairly claircognizant, which is the psychic ability to know something. I would say you’re probably a very discerning person and a good judge of character, and I would say that if you walk into a room, you can probably feel when something is off with somebody, or with the space itself. Whether you feel that in your body or whether you just know, that is heightened sensibility, that discernment is a higher ability to know something. And that is something I would call psychic. So you say you’re not, but I would say maybe stop saying you’re not because I think the moment you change the language around that, you’ll kind of see that you are.
Johnny Burke: I don’t think I’ve ever heard that before. I’ve heard someone say, you’re probably clairaudient because you’re a musician and you’ve written songs (or tried to anyway). And I thought, okay. But when I think of the clairs,
I think of clairvoyance and mediums and being able to read energy and that type of thing. I’ve also heard, many times that everyone, like you, just said, we’re born with these abilities. They’re just a little bit more, or much more latent in some people than they are in others.
Crystal Anne Compton: Well, I think we all probably had all of them on high turned up to 11 when we were young from like zero to seven. That’s when most of us are super, super psychic. And then we kind of shift and change in our brain and then the world kind of tells us we’ve got to shut that down. So by the time you hit 18-21, you’re lost in the fog.
It really is a matter of in your adulthood or whenever you want to, making the decision to start to turn back on, which is the work that I do with people, is just teaching them, well, first of all, you can, second, you came here to do the very thing. You need that in order to be as successful as possible in your life. And here’s how to do it.
Johnny Burke: You obviously had these abilities since you were a which is also very common. When was it though, when you actually started to channel? That’s a little bit different. It’s not necessarily the same thing as just being able to read energy. Channeling is pretty much an entirely different thing, isn’t it?
Crystal Anne Compton: Yeah, it’s kind of pulling some of these things into form. When I was in the church, I was probably channeling a little bit. I used to be a preacher and I could feel the energy moving through me. I didn’t know what it was though. I didn’t start to formally channel until I was in my thirties, and it happened strangely because there’s a couple of things that happened. I spent about two weeks having this very strange energy rushes over my body when I’d go to bed, like from my toes up to my head and then down again, and they were so strong that it would take my breath away. Like I’d have to sit up and gasp for air and I’m thinking, am I having a stroke? What in the world’s happening with my neurology? I went to the doctor, everything was fine.
It persisted for a couple of weeks until one night I was laying there. My husband’s snoring away and this energy is just wild. And I flip over and there are three beings by the side of my bed. They were probably about three and a half to four feet tall. They were wearing dark cloaks and. They had their, quote unquote hands in this cloak, their hands kind of stretched out over me, and where their hands were going, the energy in my body was also going. I wasn’t afraid at all. And it was kind of a dream-like interesting frequency in the room at the time. I did also notice their faces underneath that hood. Their faces were blue, and they were almost like glass as if they were lit up from the inside, like lamplight. They were just like these translucent blue beings, like the color in your backdrop.
I was just watching what they were doing and finally, I asked them, and I did this just as I used to talk to these beings when I was a kid, telepathically. And I said,” what are you doing?” And the answer I got back was “attunements”.
Now I had never heard this word before and I said, okay. And they proceeded to tell me that they were attuning me because they wanted to work with me. And so within about a month of that, I started to do some channeling. That is when like this first big bulk of information came through from these particular beings. Now I have a theory as to what kind of beings they were. I know what they wanted to talk about, which was what was coming up for the earth and the planet. I produced a hundred pages of channeling and that’s how and when it started.
Johnny Burke: Wow. So you’re talking about channeling beings. Star beings, I believe. A medium once told me they don’t like being called aliens because alien means apart of, and they don’t feel like they’re apart from us. We’re talking about beings from…….. but these beings seem benevolent and the way you just described how their hands were moving over you, it sounds like an energy healer.
Crystal Anne Compton: Well, I know what it was now in hindsight, was that they were literally adjusting my energetic, subtle bodies so that I could hold the energy that they were going to bring down through me vis-a-vis the channeling.
At the time, my body wasn’t prepared for that, and these adjustments, these nights went on for almost a month before I finally started to bring that information through. That’s just one group of beings. I’ve actually worked with others as well, but that was my most dynamic introduction to the world of channeling. But I think we can all channel you can channel star beings, or you can channel divine inspiration. It really just depends on where your interests.
Johnny Burke: Speaking of which, you’ve had some experiences with angels. Before we get to that when you started to channel, did you experience any other realms? like beyond the veil, people who have passed, family members or friends or anything like that, or possibly ancestors?
Crystal Anne Compton: Yeah. I had already up to that point experienced some of that. At the time that these beings came through, I had been giving intuitive readings. I was already working in the world of spirit, and I had had a variety of different experiences with dead people. It’s not my focus. It’s never been mediumship. I think mediums do a really special work, a special kind of ministry, but my focus was never mediumship. But I’ve had those encounters. Yes. And with ancestors as well.
Johnny Burke: Ancestors. So can you give us an example of contacting someone that passed on, what it felt like? especially an ancestor, and that must have been really wild; how did that work?
Crystal Anne Compton: I’ve had encounters with my own ancestors that were passed and some long past, and so I was able to recognize that. It does feel different. It comes in a different way when it’s mediumship versus, for example, me reading you clairvoyantly or me reading your field, those are two different stations on the radio dial for me.
When it’s a departed loved one or an ancestor. I feel that coming through this portal. In my heart. It’s like my heart opens up and there’s this warmth in this particular chakra, and that’s how I feel them connecting and then I start to get images, and then I start to get clairalience, which is where I can smell some things. Sometimes I can taste things as well. So a whole host of things happen when it’s a departed loved one coming through, but it’s always happening through the heart.
Johnny Burke: So you have no doubt that the spirit world is real; it’s not just a work of fiction?
Crystal Anne Compton: It is a hundred percent real. But I think it gets hard for people because so much of our experience of it happens in our third eye, in our mind’s eye. And so some people say, “oh, that’s just my imagination. It’s not as common to have an apparition appear in your room that you see with your naked vision. Or something that you hear in your room that somebody else might hear as well, like an outward, audible voice. It’s not as common, but it does happen. I think people often discount messages and promptings from their loved ones in spirit because they think it’s them thinking or feeling that, when it’s really them trying to communicate.
Johnny Burke: Great. You’ve had experiences beyond the veil, of humans and maybe some non-human entities. Did you ever experience the life between lives, the space in between incarnations?
Crystal Anne Compton: I haven’t, and I was so curious. I’m looking over where my Michael Newton books are. I was so curious after reading his books, I actually went to one of his, therapists, his hypnotherapists to be regressed, to try and tap into some of my lives between lives. But I’ve never been able to do that.
Johnny Burke: It seems to me that if you accept that there’s a spirit world, especially people like you that have actually had contact with them, and you’ve contacted some of your ancestors, at this point is past lives- your own or others, is that a no-brainer or is that something that you’ve never really experienced?
Crystal Anne Compton: I believe in past lives. I don’t believe in the karmic wheel per se. I believe that you can come back if you want to. I don’t think reincarnation is compulsory, meaning you can just send us all back because you say so.
I feel like the soul has to opt into something like that. Me? I don’t want to come back. I don’t want to come back for quite some time, like give me at least 500 years off, please! For example, my mother, before she passed and years leading up to it was always like, ” This is it. My contracts are done, and everything’s over. I’m done coming to Earth. I’m never reincarnating again.” And then she passed, and I feel like she’s in the process of reincarnating. So I think something happens when we get over on the other side. we get really meta, we zoom out and we see the need to come back. and I think most of us do. Personally, I hope that I don’t… I need a break.
Johnny Burke: I get that. I’ve heard that from well, quite a few people. So in other words, you’ve never really had direct experience with the in-between space or soul contracts or blueprints, but you seem to have an intrinsic knowing that that really happens.
Crystal Anne Compton: I’ve had past life experiences I’ve had flashes of memories. I personally don’t think that it’s extremely helpful to try to find yourself in a past life except to inform you having the best life you’re currently having.
I think people really like to chase after what Christ called signs and wonders or bells and whistles, like these fantastical paranormal things that are super interesting. But is it helpful now? Is it useful now? Can you use that to make the world better or your life better? So past life for me is largely symbolic and archetypal, trying to teach me lessons that I’ve learned before to help me now. So I really don’t focus too much on it, although I do believe in it, and I do believe in blueprints and contracts and all of this. Yes, soul groups, all of that.
Johnny Burke: Since you’ve experienced things including glimpses of your past life or lives, it’s pretty much a no-brainer this gives more confirmation that when we die, that’s not the end. Our consciousness, our beings keep going. Anytime someone will ask a question like, do you really believe in mediums? Or do you really believe in this? I think they’re looking for concrete, scientific evidence that we don’t die, that our consciousness survives. But at that point, I would refer them to a few simple cases. This woman Nicole Kerr, who I just interviewed last night, had an accident when she was like 19. It was horrific. She was out for I think, 10 to 12 minutes- flatlined, and she saw herself. There’s no way that she could know that when there were no brainwaves.
Crystal Anne Compton: Right. I know Nicole Kerr. I’ve interviewed her as well from my podcast, so her story is wild because she didn’t remember the entire experience until like 20 years later when it just like came back.
Johnny Burke: I love those things, because no matter what the topic is or, the objective of the person who’s speaking all of it really comes down to, it seems like, either the survival of consciousness or the evolution of consciousness. What are your thoughts?
Crystal Anne Compton: I think that’s true. I think when someone’s asking whether we believe in clairvoyance or mediums, they’re wondering, does life go on? And there may be a little bit of the fear of death in that question. I think that’s everyone’s question, right? the reality is that I can say whatever my experience is, and the next person can as well. But until you experience it yourself, you’re just not going to know. And that’s that unknown that we’re talking about.
People keep saying that there’s no proof of the afterlife, but what about the psychical research, Society of England and America? what about all of the scientists that have investigated reincarnation? There’s a lot of actual evidence suggesting of it now. It repeatable? No. So is it real science, I guess? No, but I think there’s a lot of evidence out there that points to life after death for sure.
Johnny Burke: Yeah, there is. There is. Between near-death experiences and research of people like Ian Stevenson and now Jim Tucker and all the rest of Stevenson’s contemporaries that followed in his path. You can’t explain how some kid can walk into someone’s house and tell them about their relative that passed and know family secrets and other things, and this is back in the seventies and sixties. It’s not like they had Google back then.
Crystal Anne Compton: right.
Johnny Burke: There was no way that kid could have actually known that. There’s over a thousand cases with just Stevenson alone. But I think you’re right. When people ask questions about, mediums and clairvoyance what they’re really getting at is, do we really die or not? You’ve also had experiences with angels.
Crystal Anne Compton: Yes.
Johnny Burke: I’ve heard different things about angels and most of them are good, but I once heard an intuitive- very similar to you, and she said she doesn’t trust them. What are your thoughts?
Crystal Anne Compton: The angels I’ve experienced, I definitely trust. I will say that I was an intuitive reader for a couple of decades before I changed to teaching and I was probably doing this type of thing. For 10 or 15 years and I never believed in angels. I thought angels were kind of a quaint vestige of religion and an idea people needed to believe in to feel better about themselves. An anthropomorphic image of something they needed to be real. And so I just thought it was hogwash personally, I did, even though I was very spiritual and metaphysical until I had my own experience.
I went to an angel class with my friend who like drug me there because I was like, I really don’t want to go.
But I went and we did this angel meditation to meet your guardian angel. And I was in this room with all these people meditating and I had just a crazy experience. I saw with my eyeballs, a light up in the corner of the ceiling, and as I looked at it, I could see this is a spiral of golden light. I’m seeing this with my naked vision. But then I brought my third eye online, and what I see is this being starting to spiral out of the spiral that I’m seeing in the corner of this room. This being ends up spiraling in front of me and going down on one knee and putting his chin on his. The way that he looked at me, was so quirky, like he had this total sense of humor. But I have to say that at the time I started to convulse, there was no doctor there, but it felt like little seizures were happening where I was shaking in my chair. My friend was with me because the energy of this being was so overwhelming that I could not take it.
Long story short, this being was Gabriel, and I had to ask who this being was. He told me- I didn’t believe him. I still felt like this is just ridiculous- I’m having some sort of a mental issue right now. We ended up agreeing that he would place his name in my experience, three times that week, and on the third time I would know it’s really Gabriel.
So I’m making him prove to me after I’m having convulsions in this meditation that he’s actually who he says he is.
At the end of that week, I had three separate confirmations of the name Gabriel placed into my experience and that was my first introduction to Gabriel.
Now Gabriel, he’s crazy. I’ve had him walk into my bedroom with like a space helmet on and come to me where I’m sitting in my bed and place that helmet onto me and then all of a sudden, I’m seeing like stars and sacred geometry and I’m starting to channel. But he’s a very interesting angel. and I’ve also had experiences with Michael, and I’ve had experiences with an angel named Metatron, who was the former man, Enoch from the Bible.
The Bible says to test all spirits, and some beings will say,” I’m an angel” and they are not. The way you can tell an angel is based on their energy and vibration. It is extremely ascended, and it is extremely high, high, high vibration that’s a rapidity, that’s a fast-moving kind of vibration versus a negative being who has a totally different signature. If you check in with a negative being, you’ll feel that in your gut. It’s a slower type of frequency. Jesus said you will know them by their fruit, and this is what I think he means. You will know them by the way that they make you feel. And so I think angels are good, but I don’t think they’re the mythological beings that we were taught they were in school. I don’t think that’s what angels are.
Johnny Burke: I think you just opened up the proverbial can of worms here, which we’re going to have to investigate further in a, different episode. But very cool stuff. For now anyway, is there anything else that you want our listeners to know?
Crystal Anne Compton: I would want them to know that they are intuitive that their natural state, their actual human state is to be connected to the divine, and it really is about shifting your orientation towards that, which you already are in order to open up to that and everybody can do that no matter where you are in life.
Johnny Burke: Excellent Crystal, thanks so much for coming on to the show, great information for our listeners. Speaking of which, how do they find you online?
