There is deep chasm hidden within each of us that yearns for knowledge, understanding, and experience. We yearn to experience that which we imagine with our desires and not all experiences are beneficial in the short run, but seen through the alchemical eye of transformation, all experiences can lead us to understanding and gnosis. For a mystic, all understanding is accompanied by experience. Faith alone in the mundane or the unseen and hidden will just not do without direct experiential knowledge. A mystic yearns to understand ALL things! All things and all knowledge found in darkness, light, and the shades between. Nothing can exist in the paradigms of a mystic without experiential knowledge. Knowledge born from life and death, suffering and pain, love, joy, madness, sorrow, and ecstasy ad infinitum without limit or end.
I have spent my entire life in search of the hidden jewels of knowledge, understanding, and with one hell of a zeal for experience. Pronounced a genius at the young age of nine, my mind was not like the other children that surrounded my everyday experience. Everything in existence in my understanding was alive with this hidden mathematical and synchronous energy that was magical and mysterious to me! I formed very eccentric interests in the occult, metaphysical, and hidden nature of life and the human soul at a young age. I created secret alphabets and languages that used strange symbols in the place of letters, plotting to keep the knowledge I gained secret from the profane. I was a little strange to say the least! Reflecting back on that time, it was the beginning of the heroes quest for me and the hero was thirsting for knowledge, understanding, and experience. Knowledge found even where heros feared to tread. This young man would expose to himself what lies in darkness beyond the foot of his bed. He would yet kick the boogeyman in the eye, as the foot surely escaped the blanket to test the monster, but lo and behold… he was only a figment of my imagination. He was only a product of a fearful mind.
Those early experiences have given birth to a lifetime of exploration in the areas of adventure, nature, music, shamanism, psychedelic states, consciousness exploration, plant medicines, philosophy, religion and spirituality, music, and more hours of reading and research to possibly quantify. I could go on and on about both the personal transformative experiences I have had and the ones shared with others that have been nothing short of humbling and mindblowing, but it would take quite a bit of words. I will be sharing many of these experiences through my podcast, Hawk Moon Visions, found in Spotify and Apple podcasts. It has taken a lifetime to process some of those experiences and the wisdom that has come with age has been kind on my ability for storytelling. I’m more of a talker than a writer ya know!
Looking back on my childhood reveals to me the “hidden mystic" in me. I did not always see him in the mirror staring back at me, but alas the only way to know the inner mystic requires looking in another mirror, the mirror of the soul. When you stand at the reflecting pool of Spirit and see with the eye of a child, the single eye of all knowledge, experience, and understanding… you drink from fountains of wisdom. Maybe you too are beginning to see the hidden things, to desire experience that leads you to the magical fountains. To learn, to grow, to face the darkness within and live to tell what lies hidden in its depths. You may be surprised to find hidden gems waiting for you to carry out of the caves of ignorance, and even poor souls struggling to find their way out. Armed with understanding and illumination, you will be their guide to Divine Light and Divine understanding. All of this from the “hidden mystic" inside of you.
As for me, I made peace with my “inner teacher" a long time ago and it was a painful process indeed. It has taken me on some wild rides in this life that’s for sure! Even though I am “different" I never would have thought that it would lead me to a career as a professional Psychic, Life, Love, Relationship and Meditation Coach. I just kind of fell into this life and I’ve just kept building on it for many years now. I am very humbled by the way my life has unfolded, and grateful to every person who comes to sit at my table. Thousands upon thousands of sessions later and yet each new day and each new client, each new soul, still brings me excitement and gratitude. The little “hidden mystic" in me has brought me to this place and this moment. Sitting quietly beyond the darkness at the reflecting pool am I. Will you meet me there by the waters of knowledge, understanding, and experience? We shall drink of the fountains of wisdom and tell tales of love, valor, and mystery. Our stories will bring healing to others when we are called to service.
