My fascination with consciousness, and what it takes to awaken it, started at a young age. I remember how in my 8th grade World History class I wrote an essay about why the material world we can see is an illusion. That perspective just popped out of my consciousness. My father was a music teacher, and his creative, whimsical nature encouraged me to see the world in unconventional ways. For example, he took our family on several cross-country camping trips when I was a young teenager. I remember saying several times “Dad – look there’s a pasture full of cows!” He would sometimes reply “Yes this side we can see look like cows, but the other side of those creatures you can’t see might be horses.” Those kinds of mind-blowing statements gave me permission to question my ideas about reality.
I grew up in a Jewish family with parents who were basically atheists. Although they were mostly kind and supportive to me, I grew up with a deep sense of inner pain and alienation. I could sense some kind of field of higher consciousness around me, yet I felt inwardly blocked from accessing and enjoying it. My strongest motivation was to discover how to free myself from those energy blockages that were weighing me down and preventing my life from “taking off”.
As part of this quest, I journeyed to India to be with a spiritual Satguru when I was 19 years old. This teacher taught us a form of meditation that I practiced intensively for close to 20 years. Since then, I have studied with a succession of spiritual masters and teachers of medical and healing arts. I invented medical devices used worldwide, wrote four books, and treated large numbers of patients with acupuncture, energy medicine and spiritual healing methods.
I have been politically aware during the 1960s, when landmark legislation such as Medicare, the Civil Rights and Voting Rights acts were passed in the USA. Even with all the controversies and unrest it was a hopeful time for justice and human rights. More recently I’ve seen my country and others move more in a darker direction with more top-down control and escalating environmental crises. I have felt deeply motivated to discover and be part of the solution.
As a spiritual healer I’ve developed my intuitive abilities extensively and starting around 8 years ago I began to receive many clear messages from a higher spiritual source. I was shown in various ways that humanity is at a critical junction point in which we are choosing our future destiny. All the unresolved conflicts, tribalism, and control systems of the human race were coming up to the surface. It was clear that we would either awaken the higher consciousness of our true nature or descend further into injustice and planetary destruction.
I was inspired to write these messages down and share them, which I did through blogs, classes, workshops, and retreats. Eventually these messages coalesced as a coherent theme about how people can awaken their divine nature as Avatars, in similar ways that Jesus, Buddha, and other famous world teachers did. This theme of conscious awakening intertwined with a lot I was learning about Quantum physics and it all just came together. I knew I had to write this latest book about awakening the Avatar within, and also be a catalyst for others’ awakening and empowerment. Available at Amazon: https://amzn.to/33TzYcu
