A Bit About My Work
am an author, self-publisher, spiritual consultant, energy intuitive,
multidimensional communication specialist, and global visionary.
A Bit About My Past
I hold a B.A. in Speech Communication. (I went to Western Washington University.)
I have attended graduate school specializing in family counseling and business consulting. (I went to LIOS - The Leadership Institute Of Seattle.)
I have a certificate in Spiritual Healing. (I took a five-level course in Vibronics™ - an advanced in-depth multiyear series of vibrational healing classes.)
I have held a wide variety of jobs in both the social work and business sectors. (I have had many unique management, sales, and labor jobs over forty plus years, as well as running my own publishing and consulting company for the past twenty plus years.)
A Bit About My Writing
The bulk of my writing began when I lived alone in a red cabin in the late 80's and early 90's. It was in that red cabin that I went through my first major divine awakening. I wrote down what was happening to me each day during this transformation and after four years I was overwhelmed with the amount of information that came through me.
Turning My Earlier Writings Into Books
In the beginning, I knew the ideas given to me in that red cabin were revolutionary. Not much of the cutting-edge information was out in the world. For years I dreamed of a way to distill that information into a clear and easy way for people to understand the divine awakening process.
After many years of trying to get my writings into a logical and linear format, I let go of trying.
I loved the process of awakening. I loved the wisdom of moving through illusion, awakening, and recognizing true divine essence in everyday life. I loved the magic and elegance of playing with beautiful words. It all brought me peace, joy, and happiness.
I was actually just playing around with these magical words when I came up with the quotes for my first book, When Spirits Dance.
When Spirits Dance was truly my first published celebration of living, loving, knowing, and being.
A Deeper Energy Behind The Words
I had a major breakthrough based on an insight from my mom during the editing of When Spirits Dance. As I showed my first writings to my mom, she shared with me her intuitive gut reaction. From that reaction, I sensed the depth of what she was saying. What I sensed changed my life.
What I sensed showed me that just putting the words together logically was not enough. She was showing me that there was a deeper energy behind my writing.
From that point on, I began to sense how I felt about the words I used and the ideas that I communicated. I began to sense the feel of each creation coming from within me.
From this new expanded awareness, I learned to pay attention to my own deeper emotions and intentions as I wrote and spoke. I learned to be clearer and more intentional as I added deeper emotional and spiritual components to my works.
From this new awareness, I spent the next fifteen years rewriting all my writings from a much deeper place, making sure all my underlying energies were in true divine alignment with the words that were written and spoken.
To this day, I continue to sense what is underneath what I write and speak. I also pay attention to the words that other people say and the logic and rationale that they use. I go beneath what they say and sense what their energy is saying. I pay attention to see if they really feel what they say, mean what they say, and believe what they say. I pay attention to their deeper underlying intent.
A Source of Light Publishing & Consulting
I published the first edition of When Spirits Dance in 2000 through a company I created in the early 90’s, now called A Source of Light Publishing & Consulting.
My personal and company vision was (and is) to be a source of light in the world, and to add more divine creations of wisdom, love, and light to the world.
A Divine Self-Help Book
With the success of my meditation book, When Spirits Dance, I was asked to write in more detail about the specific process of personal individuation and divine awakening.
I was excited. I really wanted to turn my writings into a self-help book that would stop pain and suffering and bring about deep peace and healing for the human race.
After writing and compiling this self-help book (eighteen years later) I learned that the true healing and awakening journey was not always about stopping pain and suffering. The true healing and awakening journey was about awakening to and accepting one's real self in the world. The journey was about awakening to and accepting the divine light that flows through one's whole self into the world. The journey was about awakening to and acknowledging what energies within one's self were out of divine alignment and helping those energies connect back with one's true divine wisdom, love, and light.
In 2006, I completed and published How To Be A Divine Presence In Everyday Life.
More Books Would Follow
Later in 2006, I followed up How To Be A Divine Presence In Everyday Life with my third book, Parables of Light.
A Not So Subtle Shift To Teaching
So I had all these amazing writings from the late 80's - maybe a thousand or so pages of channeled writings - and a few decades later I had turned these writings into five books. I had self-published them and made them available in bookstores and online. I did some bookstore talks and book signings. I continued on with my freelance healing and consulting work.
I was getting good feedback from people, but something was missing inside. I wanted more. I expected more from my healing consultations and my writings.
I decided to teach more specific lessons.
In 2007, I also created the first level of my online healing course - Lessons of Wisdom For Love & For Life™.
In 2009, I created two online social networks to share my writings and teachings. (I have since let them go.)
In 2010, I started sharing my writings and teachings on my own blog, facebook, linked in, and twitter pages.
In 2010, I also finished the second, third, fourth, and fifth level of my online healing and awakening course.
A Deeper Acceptance Of The Whole Self
In 2011, I began transforming my online course and my remaining additional writings and teachings into a digital multi-volume set called Arc of Being: An In-Depth Guide To Helping You Discover And Celebrate Your Whole Self.
This digital set of teachings marked a new evolution for me.
With this step, I began to see that each aspect of the self was divine in its own way. Sure, the spirit realms hold information, love, and light beyond imagination - but there was also something special about opening to and accepting the unique levels of wisdom, love, and light already held in one's body, emotions, and mind.
This new step was truly about my deeper acceptance of the divine whole self.
More Published Writings & Teachings
In 2012, I published the first two volumes of Arc of Being: An In-Depth Guide To Helping You Discover And Celebrate Your Whole Self. I also published two new healing and inspirational books called, You Are A Song & Cutting Trail.
In 2013, I finished the remaining five volumes of Arc of Being: An In-Depth Guide To Helping You Discover And Celebrate Your Whole Self. I also wrote and published a book of poems called Poems of Light.
In 2014, I compiled all seven volumes of Arc of Being: An In-Depth Guide To Helping You Discover And Celebrate Your Whole Self into a box set and I compiled all 15 of my published books into a box set called The Divine Heart Collection.
My original writings had now all come together. It was an amazing journey bringing these teachings to the world. I have truly grown and evolved with them.
2015 and Beyond?
So what is next?
Currently, I am working on my next book called The Man Who Walks With Angels. It is a book of healing short stories about my experiences connecting with the angels.
I also continue sharing my ideas and insights on my blog, facebook, and twitter pages.
I hope to connect with you here.
Thank you for your interest in my writings and teachings,
