At the age of 7, sick as a child, I was given something very precious to hold onto that has led me to bountiful experiences of inspiration, faith and spiritual growth. I chased this journey and every moment it sat on my shoulders, nudging me to keep moving forward, hoping to find the answers to this mystery of why I was the chosen one. Years went by and the ups and downs of life took their way but I held onto it, intuitively knowing that this was my cause. It gave me the hope and faith that I needed at times to get me through. I knew the answer would come, the time was not now and one day I would meet the man again who gave it to me. Research took me all around the world and timing had its place in random events and situations, connecting me from one person to another. Knowing now that what I have is a moral and spiritual obligation to share, so valuable it is invaluable; a part of history to all walks of life.
With due care this mystery was kept in the ears of only a chosen few for my entire life. 34 years later, I met the man who gave it to me. It became publicly released last fall. The vision of the man that I carried with me for 34 years has been matched in real time. The relationship has flourished and new growth has spiralled. This story is about how to find your true cause in life, a dream that fills your heart and soul with passion, to live a spiritual life of love and faith. But not only this, it’s about taking the time to thank those that gave you it and knowing how to share with others that are searching too.
For me now, this is a journey about giving people inspiration, giving people a little bit of hope. This is about people having a cause in life because I think we tend to get caught up in day to day life. We get caught up in the corporate jungle. I’ve been there, I think everyone’s been there and we still do but I think at the end of the day it’s about having something to hold onto...and having a little faith.”
“I think it’s important to have faith and to have something that inspires you and sparks your spirit, something from your past that keeps showing up, that knows you. Everyone has a dream and through this, I hope to motivate them... this is a story for everyone and if I can inspire just one person, it’s worth it...”
