Well, what can I say about me? There’s all the usual palaver that I could go on about: my upbringing on a farm in Pennsylvania, complete with my childhood encounter with an angelic voice speaking to me in an unknown language out of a ball of light in a nearby meadow. Or my early experimentation with psychotropic substances and discovering Tibetan Buddhism, Theosophy, the Rosicrucians, white witchcraft and Edgar Cayce. Or the desire to become a rock and jazz fusion star on lead guitar. Many gigs and many sonic hangovers. I’m on a roll, so… Got married, twice. Had careers in the hotel and restaurant industry as an auditor and accountant (yep, count them beans), sold point-of-sale systems to the hospitality industry, sold in-room entertainment systems to the same industry, then got to live a fantasy of mine by working in the musical instrument retail industry. Then, something funny happened.
In January 1994 I had a kick in the cosmic backside. Technically referred to in esoterica as a ‘kundalini awakening’, I was literally stripped of my former life, lock, stock, and barrel. I fell in love, fell out of a marriage, began having all kinds of inter-dimensional and paranormal communications with what a friend of mine refers to as ‘other dimensionals’, and began a four-year purge on all levels, pyschic, psychological, emotional and physical. Somewhere along the way the big angel from the meadow came back to me…Archangel Ariel. And the Christ presence, and a few others as well. All I could do was fasten my seat belt and trust. Healing modalities happened. Channeling happened. Facilitating workshops and giving presentations happened. Leading folks on dolphin swims in Hawaii with other wonderful humans happened. Meeting my beloved partner happened.
Well, its been fifteen years since those halcyon days, and I am now older and a bit more grounded. Although I don’t look at the world through New Age tinted lenses, I nonetheless know that we are involved in a amazing and critical time in the planetary drama, that I have a role to play in it and an opportunity to share my love through my gifts of wisdom, love, healing, music and writing.
Thanks for listening.
