From a young age, I realized that I wasn’t like everyone else. I had an undying curiosity about the paranormal and metaphysics. My journey began at the age of 13, when I started to learn about crystals and their metaphysical properties.
I come from a family with deep ties to the Mystery School teachings. My grandfather on my dads side, was a Rosicrucian through AMORC, and was with the order since the early 1920s. When he passed, he was buried with his 60 year Rosicrucian lapel pin. Growing up, I heard from my parents, how he was into the "New Age", and it was not to be taken seriously, as it was demons who gave those kind of abilities.
My father had been in the Rosicrucians for a short time as well. However, he had a "Mind Experience", which caused him to leave the order, and seek a different path. It wasn't until I had met a family of friends, who had the same curiosities about metaphysics and magick, that set me on my course to become a wizard.
As I had mentioned above, at the age of 13, I began to become infatuated with quartz crystals and would buy them from the local mall. My friends who I went to junior high with, did not really know about my curiosity. One day, while one of my friends was rummaging through my coat pockets, he found my medicine bag full of crystals. They asked "What is this?". I thought for sure they were going to make fun of me. I told them that it was a "native american medicine bag, and the crystals give of an energy that effects your aura field". One of my friends looked at the other, as if to acknowledge something between them. I was not exactly sure what was going on, but did not completely trust them, to not make fun of me. My friend handed the medicine bag back to me, and said "that is very interesting, I would like to hear more about this". His demanor changed to one of complete seriousness. I was kind of perplexed.
About two days later, I was meeting up with my friends again. This time the two friends sat me down and wanted to talk to me. They said, "We have been training the past year and a half in studying three fold magick. We have been doing this secretly, and haven't told you about it as we did not know you were interested in such stuff. We would like to have you join our circle and become the third inner master, of our circle." I was totally shocked, I had no idea that they were doing this. I thought about it for a moment, and decided, that if I wanted to learn more about metaphysics and the paranormal, I needed to study and learn with people beyond just my self. I said, "yes, sure I will join." Thus began my training in the magickal arts.
About three years later, the circle disbanded. However, I had come to know my friends mom quite well. We would always have extreme metaphysical discussions. Along with her, my other friend whom I consider a sister in magick, would teach me about her back ground, in paganism and wicca. I would spend hours with my friends mom, learning at her feet, about Jungian psychology, dream interpretation, how to create dream journals, crystals, Judaism, and most importantly Kabbalah.
During the time I was in the circle, I did feel a bit of a religious conflict due to my Lutheran upbringing by my parents. In Lutheran school, we were taught, that God had basically wound up the universe, and is letting it run, and he does not give out visions or interact with people since the time of Jesus and his deciples. That never sat well with me, even as a 5 year old child. If that God in the Bible was real, then he would talk to me "Face to Face", as he did the prophets in the old testament.
When I started to study Kabbalah under my friends mom, I discovered that there was a whole new metaphysical, mystical world in the Bible, that had been completely covered up from the public. Infact, I discovered that the Rosicrucians, who date back to 16th century France and Germany were the guardians, and initiators of the Cabalistic tradition, going into Europe, known as the "Western Mystical Tradition". And my grand father was a long standing member. It was quite the jaw dropping experience. I studied under my friends mom from 1991 to 2003. I would gather books, and resources for her so I could aid her in her research. To this day I still am learning from my "Sister Witch", and talk to her every so often when magickal advice is needed.
After 2003 I had moved from the Seattle area to Oklahoma City. I settled down and had a kid, who in his own right is extremely metaphysical. My wife at that time, had previously gone to a local school here, called "The School of Metaphysics". At first i was not quite sure how, or what they could teach me. Due to my former training, I was kind of skeptical that they had anything to really offer me. My wife at that time decided to go to the classes, and would bring home the lessons. After reading a few of the lessons I was really impressed. I decided to join myself in July of 2007. Thus started my formal training at the School of Metaphysics. My tenure at the school lasted for 2 1/2 years. At the end I received my "Respondere" degree which is like getting an associates degree. Let me tell you, getting my Bachelors degree in Management and Informations systems, was easier than getting my "Respondere".
During my 2 1/2 years there, I learned a ton of new metaphysical skill sets. I learned a deeper form of dream interpretation, which uses the "Universal Language of Mind", as symbols of the Subconscious mind to relate what is happening in our dreams. Along with this I learned, concentration, meditation, astrology, Kyria Yoga, breath work, astral projection in a formal tradition, universal laws, how to manifest your thoughts into physical form by wielding those laws, and much more. This helped to lay the groundwork for this
for this current business today.
After my time at the School of Metaphysics, I joined the Rosicrucians and began going through the AMORC course work. I also happened to meet my next teacher. She was a Kabbalistic Rabbi, who had also amazing abilities, not only to decipher your dreams, but literally tell you what you dreamt, before you even started to tell her. She had the remarkable capacity to telepathically, and intuitively see what energetic blockages were holding you back. I trained under her for 3 years, studying everything I could not learn, from the hundreds of books I read on Kabbalah. It was an amazing journey.
In recent years, I started to branch out in my metaphysics studies. I picked up the study of Nordic mythologies and metaphysical practices. Among them were the Yggdrasil, which is the Nordic mystical system that is a twin sister to the Kabbalah. I also picked up the reading and writing of runes, which is the sister system of "Gematria" and the Hebrew alphabet, in Kabbalah. From this study I have learned how to safely create bind runes, and do rune interpretation.
My current path forward for the future, involves me working towards getting certified as a Dream-Life Coach, under Dr. Kelly Sullivan Waldens dream-life coach Training course work. Her course work can be found here: http://dreamlifecoachtraining.com She is the best in the business, and is called the "Dream Doctor".
Thank you for taking the time to read the brief overview of my life journey, in to the world of metaphysics. I hope to share this world with you, and help to open up the pathway before you.
