Clairvoyant medium is not your average occupation, but it’s been Walter Makichen’s for over twenty years. At an early age, Walter realized that what he saw and how he perceived the world was very different from other people. As an adult he realized that he took for granted the things he saw about people, but when he would share his perceptions with others, they were amazed by his ability to bring clarity and guidance to their lives. It turned out that his clairvoyant ability to access and explain a person’s private, unacknowledged reality was often considered phenomenal. This clairvoyant ability eventually led him to a career of helping people to better understand themselves, their lives, and the people around them.
Walter graduated from the University of Pennsylvania with a degree in English and pursued graduate degree work at the University of California at Berkeley. However, his clairvoyant ability combined with his pragmatism soon captured the attention of others. As a graduate student at Berkeley, people sought his advice when they were faced with difficult problems and decisions. In 1980 the demand for consultations and workshops provided a new direction, and he left graduate school to found the Center for Self Teaching a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping people better understand the metaphysical and spiritual aspects of their lives.
Over the last two decades, Walter has become a mentor, advisor, and teacher to thousands of people in the United States and Europe. He has the ability to transmit the skills and wisdom he gains through his clairvoyance to his clients. Walter’s clairvoyant perspective speaks to people from different faiths and across a wide spectrum of careers including CEOs, attorneys, investment managers, homemakers, entrepreneurs, psychiatrists, monks, writers, artists, and film producers. Walter is best known for his ability to take a humorous and insightful approach to real life challenges.
Walter Makichen resides in Portland, Oregon with his wife, many Cavalier King Charles Spaniels, cat and parrot.
