Born 26 May 1967. From a young age, I was having psychic and clairvoyant experiences which no-one could explain to me. I lost my mother when I was 5 years old, and my father was a staunch atheist, so I learned to keep my unusual and profound experiences to myself.
At 11 years old, I found a pamphlet for Transcendental Meditation. I was strongly drawn to this and harassed my father until he finally relented and paid for a teacher. She was a wonderful elderly lady who showed me the principles and gave me my first mantra. I practiced TM every morning and evening. Soon I was spontaneously grieving. I cried for two weeks, greatly worrying my father. Despite his requests, I would not quit meditating. The grieving abated and I started having incredible psychic and spiritual experiences. One morning I was sitting with my eyes closed when a silver dot appeared in the distance; then it rushed toward me and exploded into my forehead (third eye chakra). I did not understand what was happening. Beings of Light would often surround me; I had no terms of reference so I just called them 'the good guys'. I began experiencing profoundly deep peaceful states. However, with nobody to share all these experiences, I developed into a quieter, introspective child.
When I was 15 years old, I decided that my mission in life was to find all the secrets and keys for a fulfilling and successful life, and to understand this mystery of Existence, then share all that sacred knowledge with the world in order to improve the quality of everyone’s life.
Here is a brief synopsis of my life: I was born in South Africa, a country with eleven passionate tribes, an exquisite natural environment, awesome wildlife and delicious food. School bored me to tears (the only subject I enjoyed was English, especially writing). At 18 years old, I was drafted into military service (compulsory in S.A.); I spent two years in the Marine Corps. It was a great place to acquire the valuable skill of discipline. After that, I qualified as a Commercial Diver and chose to work on the west coast of South Africa, diving for diamonds in the cold Atlantic Ocean. Yes, that’s a thing! I loved being underwater; it felt completely natural to me. When an unusual weather pattern was predicted to shut down offshore diving for 6 months, I enrolled in the University of South Africa. A few years later I graduated with a BA Honours Psychology. I absolutely loved university because I could choose my subjects. I spent a few years in the business world (Human Resources, Training and Development). I relocated to the United Kingdom and established my own Learning and Development Consultancy and also a psychic therapy practice. I was always learning: numerous post-graduate courses and hundreds of books covering many topics. One day I realized that what I had was not enough. I made some hard decisions. At 39 years old, I walked away from everything. For the next 10 years I travelled the world, seeking the most powerful spiritual teachers and healers on the planet. I learned from sangomas in Africa, shamans in Peru and Mexico, lamas in Tibet and the Kingdom Of Bhutan, Tantra masters and other esoteric teachers. I opened a spiritual tourism business, meeting with worldwide trippers seeking to heal with Peruvian shamans. I searched worldwide until I found the secrets and keys to deep fulfillment, profound self-love and resounding joy. My exhilarating and challenging adventure had two outcomes: I experienced a radical emotional healing and spiritual transformation. I combined my deep knowledge of psychology and human nature with all the spiritual lessons and wrote 12 bestselling spiritual self-help books.
I am now married and settled in Los Angeles. My wife is the most loving, wonderful woman I have ever met. We flow in profound love, compassion, kindness and deep soul connection. We are dedicated to a life of "Love and Serve". Gratitude, generosity and legacy ...
