I can fly, and reach the sky, and I believe you can too!
Even though I am 69 years young (most of the time), I was not always of this frame of mind and heart. In fact, I was born into a dysfunctional family, and learned to be really dysfunctional myself. I was depressed much of the time, and because of my dysfunction I suffered in relationships, and found living life intolerable.
However, there was always a spark of light within me that rebelled against the mediocrity with which I was living my life, and at the age of 12, I went to the seafront in Sea Point, Cape Town, South Africa, where I was living, and with arms held aloft in emotional supplication, I cried incessantly, as I beseeched God, The All That Is, The Source of All, The Great Mystery, or whatever name you are comfortable in calling that Universal Power that underlies all of Creation. I beseeched the unknown to make itself known to me, and to help me on my earth journey, the red path, so that I could learn what I came to learn and to accomplish what I came to accomplish. Quite profound for a young chap, would you not say?
Since that day in 1957, I have sought all manner of modalities and techniques that would help me to heal all that which limited me in my perception of spirit, my mind, my heart and my body, so that I could raise my consciousness (expand my conscious awareness). I sought out every spiritual group, and studied all kinds of healing techniques, and spiritual development modalities so that I could mitigate all my karma, or at least most of it, in this lifetime. Needless to say, my life was full of karmic returns, and numerous opportunities for physical & mind healing, as I struggled with seemingly insurmountable odds of opposition, as I staggered towards knowledge of myself. I suffered a lot, but the rewards were beyond measure, and as I gaze back over my active life, I see that I have achieved a vast amount, and subsequently, my life is a great success.
Now, I want to share all these experiences and the knowledge I have gained with anyone who is interested in improving their lives, and who wishes to find out who they really are (Self-Discovery), transform any weakness into strength and power (Self-Empowerment), and to help themselves heal just about any condition they have, even if they require some help from a health professional. At least, such a person would be empowered with sufficient awareness of Self to know how to help themselves without having to rely totally on a third party. This is called Independence and Self-Healing.
I am the proud author of 4 books. The first is purely humorous, and was my first venture into writing. My subsequent 3 other books are all in the genre of Self-Help, Self-Improvement & Self-Healing. I am also collaborating with a dentist to help create a healing programme for Body, Mind & Spirit, and we are also in the process of creating a healing group of 3 persons, all of whom will lay healing hands on one ‘patient,’ who will receive the combined power of healing energy and intent. I am also part of another group of 10 people who gather once a month to raise consciousness.
I do not write about myself out of an unfulfilled ego, rather, I want to let you know what drives me and where I wish to go with all this. I have met Sue Ellam of Soulfully Connecting, who I applaud for this wonderful project of bringing knowledge, people and energy to help people connect on the soul level, and thus choose the means by which they can improve their own lives and then pay that forward by helping others, just as I wish to do. There is more information about me on my page, on this very website.
I shall be contributing various excerpts of my books, and writing other articles that may be of use to visitors of Soulfully Connecting. Comments and questions are most welcome.
