Q. What is a Reading?
I am a father, son, friend, entrepreneur, leader and Christian gay man. I am blessed to have a loving family, generous friends and a powerful relationship with God. My family nurtured, loved and supported me through the many trials and tribulations of childhood and adolescence; creating me as the man I am today. My friends forced me to look honestly at who I am and allowed me to expand beyond who I knew myself to be, driving me to live a bigger life than I had planned for myself. And, God has led me to a place where I use His gifts to broaden the who I know myself to be and experience the miracle of opening myself up to others, allowing His grace the opportunity to expand.
I occasionally take a break for renewal, disconnection, reconnection and creation. It was during one of these times that I discovered my Life Purpose Message, Listening for the Voice of God Within.
My passion is fully generated through my faith, creativity and generosity. My creativity generates my life through Technicolor glimpses of what can be and creates the power that With Love...Anything is Possible. My circumstances are a constant reminder that life is a choice. Issues will occur, taking my focus off my higher purpose, but it is how I handle those situations that create the life in which I live. I truly believe that every challenge is an opportunity waiting to be fulfilled.
I am committed to making a difference in the world through using every tool at my disposal to empower the lost, searching and disenchanted. Through this commitment, I embraced God’s message and surrendered to His Will to write, God Speaks - A Dialogue.
I believe there are no coincidences, and as such, have found my special place where God manifests Himself in a very personal way. God uses all things (physical, spiritual or emotional) to share His presence every moment of every day.
As a man in his sixties, I resisted the path God requested that I take at the age of 16, and my results reflect that renunciation. I have a lot in common with Jonah and his resistance to God’s Will. I haven’t spent any time in a big fish, but I have dealt with the sin of pride. With a newly cleansed heart, God asked that I confess my weakness, so I may step past yesterday and move forward to a fulfilled tomorrow.
Q. Have I lived lives in the past?
You are the culmination of every life experience and you are also a mix of unresolved past life experiences. When connecting to your past lives, you discover the remnants of unfinished relationships demanding completion. I can give you guidance on the clearing process should this be what comes through in your reading. There is no hypnosis or regression during this session. I can access past lives intuitively which does not acquire hypnosis or any state in which you were not fully in control. I visualize images from your past lives that will open up areas of discussion that will forward the fulfillment of your life.
Q. What is a Life Purpose Message session?
My life changed the moment I spoke the phrase, “Living with the Top Down.” Prior to that moment, I had been living inside of a structured existence of other people's making. I had been living out the belief system of my family, was disconnected from God and searching for my purpose. Although I had been raised in an atmosphere where security was paramount in all career decisions, I felt led in a different direction. At the time, I didn't understand I needed to have a faith beyond anything I'd ever known to accept the life I was being drawn to; one that creates miracles and unfathomable results with every opportunity.
In November 2005, I had a planned trip to Los Angeles where I would be staying with my cousin for the first week, attend a weekend conference, and stay with another cousin the second. It was at Thanksgiving that my passion flourished. Traveling home from a social gathering, my friend, Natalie and I were discussing my future and how I might manifest the changes I wanted to implement. I told her how I got inspired while driving around Malibu with the convertible top down and I said, ‘I want to live with the Top Down.’ I stopped and looked at her. I could see that this statement really touched her.
At that moment, my mantra became Living with the Top Down. Within a year, I had left my job and moved from the Washington DC area to a beach town outside of Wilmington, NC. Oak Island welcomed me on June 16, 2006, and I began living my dream and creating unprecedented opportunities. I began to feel compelled to do something bigger than I know myself to be. I anticipated the daily walks along the seashore, writing my first novel, creating a life full of love and laughter, and living fully with freedom and ease.
I began my journey to fulfillment by creating a mantra, 'Living with the Top Down.' This came from a dream of living at the beach and driving a convertible. When I began sharing the mantra, it took on a life of its own. It began generating people to find this power inside themselves.
I am committed to making a difference in the world through authentic conversation, and fully expressing myself through my two passions: God and writing.
Q. Are you able to speak with those who have crossed?
I knew the call of God from a very young age. It was my unwillingness to submit to God's will that led to the voice. The first time I heard the voice, I was sixteen. I was on a church choir tour and the timing must have been right. I heard the voice ask me to follow. I let my fear and arrogance deny the opportunity and I walked away from God.
In March 1991, I heard the voice again, but this time there was a challenge to the message. At that time, I was a smoker, and when the voice spoke, I heard, “You no longer smoke.” I have not had a yearning nor a cigarette since that day.
In February 1993, the voice got bold. I left my house and headed for the park path. My anxiety was overwhelming, and I intended to release the feeling as I approached the path. Having walked just under a mile, something began to feel very different. I immediately noticed that I was alone on the path which was very unusual. Although it was an unusually warm day for February, the farther I walked, the path was empty. I was strangely alone.
As I neared the half mile marker, my agitation grew to the point that I began to speak aloud. I began cursing my life, my kids, my parents, and most of all, God. I blamed God for everything that was going wrong and ignoring all the blessings. As my anger expanded, I got bold and began asking questions of God.
“Why do I have to live like this? Why can't I make enough money to get out of my parents’ house? How am I supposed to have a personal life with the responsibility of the boys and my parents watching my every move?”
I received no answers. My frustration grew from whispered grumbles to full-out screaming. At one moment, I stopped and screamed to the heavens, “If you are really there, why won't you answer me?”
Suddenly, everything around me shifted. The trees fell silent, the insects grew quiet, and my body became rigid. My eyes focused on the clouds moving slowly from left to right.
At that moment, my mouth opened and a voice, clearly not mine, said, “And what would you have Me say?”
Not really expecting a response, I stood in the space where God spoke, and awaited my response. I was speechless.
My heart opened spiritually as I began to see the greater purpose of my life. I began to write poetry, short stories and began a novel. However, deep down inside I knew I was supposed to write God's book. The title was clearly spoken, God Speaks.
The next time I heard God speak was the day I wrote His book. I had written twenty-seven pages over a period of six years, yet I could not connect with the message. On my 49th birthday, I sat down to write at least ten pages. As I sat in the chair, I noticed the clock and promised myself I would write for at least three hours. It was 10:30AM and I felt the laptop heating up my legs. I reread the page I’d written, and I didn’t know where to go.
As I looked at the last sentence, I heard God speak. “Nice book. It’s not mine. Erase it!”
I hesitated and then pressed, Ctrl – Alt – Delete and watched the pages disappear. I looked up and the words flowed. I started typing. Time seemed to stand still. I typed faster than I ever had or have since. When I typed the last word, I slammed shut the laptop and looked at the clock. It was 11:49PM. I had been typing all day, and it seemed to be just minutes. I slipped on my flip-flops and walked two blocks to the beach. The water was loud, and the moon was bright. I walked to the water’s edge and looked to the sky. With a full heart, I asked, “Is that what you wanted?”
Two ‘stars’ raced across the sky and vanished against the sea. I got my answer.
