I believe we are all here within this amazing (k)osmos to live well. A “place” where all people(s) can discover & live their dreams, love their lives, face their transitions with glee, motivation & trusting-excitement, and meet other fascinating people & creatures along the way. To harness blissfully our pure-potential-present-moments with an enjoyable directing of our be-ing via the harmonic flow arising from the opulence that is our birth-right. To contentment, thru fulfillment, & of peace.
I believe we can all find this, do this, be this, live this, and most importantly in a non-bullshit way. ..and there are more than three examples in life that must fit into a sentence! (my partner is laughing)
I’ve walked many philosophical paths and I’ve found that all (and I do mean all) lead to the same place. We can all thank the heavens for that!

Segments from Various Interviews:
“..[I]‘ve been life coaching since I was a kid. It’s odd, I was giving out effective/affective advice back in 6th grade, even to my teachers. Some people hated me cuz of it, often though people loved it and came back for more. I was the ‘go to guy’ on everything with my friends growing up. From the time I was a little kid I remember looking at life a lot differently then most people. I tended to have an outsiders view on life and common traditions. Certainly it made me experiment with life, living, sexuality, who I was, why I was, where I was trying to go, etc. Some of my friends say that, “I’ve lived a lot of lives”. Some of them good, while some of them idiotically ingenuous, and still others even laughable. But back when I was growing up, often I would strongly questioned how and why the “bad stuff” was around at all. It always seemed like people were doing things to themselves, even though I couldn’t see it that way in my own life ironically.
Then about the time I started my first record label back in the early 90′s (in which I struggled with like crazy until I got it down in 2000, but then the towers fell and lost my nerve to continue with economy shifting in music) I realized just how strangely I viewed life. I realized that I had to change as a person. So I started my life over.
I could see that seemingly upsetting things in life were more like life lessons. And much of the time, all it takes to succeed at anything is:
1) persistence in the face of adversity.
2) setting up an emotional-support-structure via Source, friends & family.
3) lots of physical rest.
4) quality time for reflection.
5) follow-able (& motivating) action-steps ..with a nudge from a friend to keep us accountable.
6) some form of passive automatic income to fill in the gaps when you can’t be actively “working” for money.
7) Most importantly, driven by enthusiastic belief’s that support our full-being: examined, harnessed, defined, redefined into effective action that transcends our annoying ruts with ease, bridges our gaps with graceful wings, and bountifully attain our goals & ambitions.
…beliefs are the core of all emotions. And thoughts create emotions (energy in motion). Thus, e-motions cause actions, ..actions when properly directed thru skill-building & practice, can create and hold peak & long-lasting positive results.
…inner peace is a good place to start.
.. it was easy for me to identify when a mistake / snag / upset was going to happen. I seemed to be gifted with a nose for that stuff. Often I’d even let the mistakes take place in order to learn from them. And holy-cow did I allow a ton of mistakes to happen. But wow, have I learned a lot. And what I learned was that most “mistakes” are actually listening to that ‘jerk in our brains’ trick ya into doing things by dubing you into thinking the mental chatter of your brain is actually “you”.
It was astounding to me that so many of us are lead to the path of willing-non-conscious-action. And sheeeesh did I learn the hard, hard, Hard way.
Homelessness, ditched college to start a record label, satanic blackmetal, pretending to be the dark prince himself, vampires, ghouls, death industrial music, BDSM culture, being a fashion-easta for way too long, wasting my time trying to be the perfect lover and looking like a chump doing it, letting jobs push me around, being a push-over, being an asshole, being a liar, being to brutally honest, etc… If you can name a few more stupid things, chances are, I’ve gone down that road and exposed the good, the awkward, & the ugly-bad of them all.
I could write a book on “The Life Lesson”.
..A lot of people say that you can’t change, well I’m living proof that you can.”
“In 2005 after 15 years studying Freemasonry, Rosicrucianism, Templarism, Mystic Christianity, Buddhism, Occultism, Wiccan, metaphysics, Magic(k), M Theory, SuSY, & Psychology in my spare-time as a break from my music ventures and visual design career, I naturally gravitated back to my roots. I left making weirdo music behind me and began reading the works of about a billion self-help authors. More importantly I returned to the new-thought authors that inspired me as a teenager. thanks to Eckart Tolle being on Oprah, The Secret being released, and Louise Hay & Wayne Dyer becoming house-hold names all over again… I’ve recently found myself exploring the many newer motivational-companies, and am I amazed at the amount of great info there is out there now. When I was growing up – effective info/advice was tough to find. Now – thanks to the net – it seems like there are a million people shoveling great advice.
Luckily I took that advice, because it pulled me out a couple really bad business ventures as well as the worse job I’ve ever had. We can thank Charles F Haanel, Earl Nightingale, Kahlil Gibran, and William Walker Atkinson for that “up-lift”.. but that’s a whole other story.
..about the same year that I really started to genuinely apply all that I spent 30 years learning thru hard-knocks (as my dad used to say), that’s when it happened. People started to refer others to me while asking me how I was doing what I was doing, cuz it really seemed like I was on the road to well-being in a huge way. …This, bummer for me was when I started to see the fall off.
My job started to malfunction, the amazing place I moved into was suddenly restructuring its association rules, I was getting cranky and irritable all the time, even though, I was making my own schedule, making good money, still releasing music, found the love of my life, and had a ton of freelance design work. Still, I was finding myself miserable?? Even my closest friends were getting what they wanted, but none of us, not even one of us could seem to hold onto it long enough to really Feel Accomplished. This pissed me off and spooked me me deeply.
But then it hit me!
Talk about an obvious wake up call. Luckily for me, my soul gave me zero choice in the matter. I had to do what “they” (every specialized discipline in the universe was teaching) all talk about in their books and seminars; stuff I’ve known since I was about 6 years old, but seemed to have subconsciously blocked it: …Yes, we all (you included) always get what you want simply by being/radiating the emotional energy that is on the same “level” as your desires/thinking/shenpa, ..but!! ..what I uncovered via my past folly.. was that we only ‘keep’ what we actually BELIEVE we really “ARE”!
Belief & Trust are the Key.
Somehow I had missed the greatest teaching in all of magic(k), Freemasonry, the Occult, Alchemy, Metaphysics, New Thought, New Age, ancient texts, modern economics, basic math, brain surgery, business 101, NLP, counseling 101, and is even summed up in Rule #1 investing: this being, YOU ARE ONLY GOING TO SUCCEED AT WHAT YOU “ARE”. Wanting something is only going to cause more wanting, thus if you ain’t what you want, it’s going to return to a want, because you won’t have the long-term energy to sustain it within your life. And as that goofball Joe Vitale has put it in damn near everything that guy does & lectures about: “you gotta get clear”. He is absolutely correct. And my life is living proof of this. (coincidentally, CLEAR is how you pronounce my last name)
Shocked by how I missed/avoided this, I returned to Thomas Troward’s – The Edinburgh Lectures, and was dubiously reminded of some things that I dealt with in my past. Ya know those moments that snapped ya back into “A C T I O N”.
Life is about movement.
Literally about movement. Growth. Organized Expansion. Attention backed with Intention. Linking with Source thru trust & belief. Retaining that connection thru willful focus with an unshakable persistence. And an ability to get out of your own way!
I had finally realized a great connection with all the events in my life up until the very present-spanking that spurred me into life-coaching as a profession. Because not only did I have a nose for knowing when the bad was coming, I was awesome I transmuting that energy into the wonderful and miraculous. That being… even at my lowest I was an incredible life-coach. Helping folks is what I am. Helping folks is what I’ve always done. Helping folks works for me. This thread-of-doing has been in doings & non-doings / every-damn-thing I ever done since I was a little kid sucking at sports..
Talk about a natural process.
It was almost like my soul were celestially built to do this for & with people. … That’s tongue-in-cheek of course, cuz aren’t we all built for this>>>?
I mean who can bow out of a calling that thick and lovely.”
“Even though I get referrals all the time, I’m still in the process of getting accredited. So it’s a bit odd when people ask me how I became a life coach. So I just tell them that I’ve always been one. ..And the odd thing about being accredited as a life coach is that it is other life-coaches that are accrediting me?? Which lead me to ponder, who accredited the first life coach? The first dentist, scientist, philosopher, designer, WC3 coder??? That’s when it really struck me: the real accreditation is from client satisfaction, the consistent referrals, and the people I am serving. Cuz in the end, just like the beginning, it’s all about them. So I’m quite excited to finally see a piece of paper that says I’m a proper life-coach, even though I’ve been qualified my whole life.., but hey, you be the judge.”
