The oldest of thirteen siblings,
I was raised & homeschooled in Lancaster County, PA (USA).
Kundalini-activated & highly energy sensitive (HSP) my entire life,
I experienced much unexplained grief, pain & suffering,
until I began to understand and address the situation.
Medically-speaking, this manifested primarily as C-PTSD,
severe Fibromyalgia, and an underlying mitochondrial disorder.
All fall neatly into the category of 'invisible illnesses',
often met with misunderstanding & premature judgement.
I attempted to be a warrior monk for early in life,
faithfully practicing asceticism,
with occasional brief (& inevitable)
periods of counter-balancing excesses.
None of this helped my physical situation.
I now heartily embrace the stability of moderation
in Earthly pleasures & Divine Blessings.
After two USMC combat tours to Iraq as Arabic linguist,
and then careers in military intelligence & info security,
I turned to painting & writing in an effort to resolve
these intensifying emotional & physical health issues.
I finally found my own inner peace,
and enjoy sharing that with others.
I now share my gifts to increase the measure
of calm & tranquility in the world.
I found that I inadvertently activated Kundalini in others
for years without realizing, now I have control over this.
I am willing to assist (in person only) anyone who is
having a tough time with their Kundalini awakening process.
While mentoring, I hold space &
bring an objective heart to personal concerns.
