I survived a very abusive childhood (enough said about that). Then, at 12, I survived a Near Death Experience (September 29, 1980) and at 14 I experienced a very conscious Out-of-Body Experience (May 1, 1982). Subsequently, I began to 'recognize' and 'know about' certain people. But for many years, I didn't realize these impractical 'recognitions' and 'knowings' were souls on the Other Side attempting to communicate with their loved ones through me.
After high school, I had a short stint in the Army (1987), became a Certified Nursing Assistant (1988) and then a Buddhist (April 15, 1989) and a monk (September 22, 1990). My Buddhist Teachers are Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, the founder of the New Kadampa Tradition and Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche, founder of the Tergar Meditation Community. Thus, I have the shaved head and unusual name.
A friend suggested I read Adventures Beyond the Body by William Buhlman (1997). Then, after asking Spirit the why and how of Creation (2000), I received the symbol-keys of the Triangle-Square-Cross in a 'dream class'. This led me to the Edgar Cayce Readings and Dr. Joe Dispenza, the primary sources of my 'mind study'. My biological father passed (April 8, 2012) and over the next year, my research led me to attend a Gallery Reading by Medium Joshua-John (March 17, 2013) during which my deceased father told me “to get off my ass” and begin formally studying and practicing Mediumship, despite working 2 full-time jobs as a CNA.
The rest, you could say, is history...
