Technology Consultant / Life Coach / Reiki Master / Artist / Meditator
We are in exciting times of awakening where people are coming into fuller, deeper realizations and developing clearer visions about who they are and what they want in life as well as more and more evidence that you can have what you want all the time.
With this comes a renewed sense of personal power that enables one to overcome obstacles and achieve whatever their goals and dreams are in life
I am passionate about helping people with this realization process and seeing the joy of breaking through the barriers and achieving goal after goal in the pursuit of living the life of your dreams.
I AM an amazing intuitive healer and inspirational life coach who brings an eclectic array of skills ranging from my work as an Addictions Counselor, Treatment staff trainer, workshop presenter, student of A Course in Miracles, Law of Attraction studies, Meditation (over 25 years), Reiki Master, Artist as well as my own personal recovery and spiritual life work.
Our work will primarily be focused on gaining an understanding of the processes that interfere and create the obstacles you are experiencing in life and developing strategies to overcome them.
“My Life Journey”
It was another amazingly beautiful day full of sunshine, the scent of the plumeria, happy tourists accented by the sweet sounds of Hawaiian music. By all appearances this was paradise, Honolulu Hawaii. But I was in hell.
I reached a low point: failed attempt at marriage, no real career connection, broke, busted and disgusted.
I picked up the phone to call my mother back in New York. I wanted to ask for help but couldn’t really. So I did what I always did, I told her some of what was going on and hoped that she would say i’ll send you a few bucks.
We talked a bit and I told her my wife was leaving me and i didn’t know what to do or where to turn. Usually that would be the moment she would offer her kind of help. But for some reason this time she said “well, Michael, have you tried prayer?”
This wasn’t what I wanted to hear by a long shot but after I hung up the phone it got me thinking. I was in a very anxious hopeless state but I thought I would give it a try.
That was a huge turning point in my life for many reasons – 1. I hit bottom. 2. I reached out for help. 3. I was asked to try something i never tried before and 4. I tried it.
That was the beginning of my conscious participation in my recovery. It didn’t happen overnight and I am still a work in progress or as I like to think of it “fine tuning my I AM Practice”.
Ultimately I have come to understand that I was the problem. While I spent a lot of time talking about what others did or failed to do that impacted me it was my decisions during and after those times that determined how I navigated through life.
In a way it took a village to get me into my mess and it ended up taking a village to get me out.
I’ve been through addiction treatment, therapy, 12 steps, church, and a variety of spiritual practices. At this point, 2017 I can say it’s been about a 25 year process.
I’ve developed a support network, a spiritual practice, a creative outlet and for the most part a hopeful outlook on life.
I am not unique and still pretty flawed but a much better human being than I was back then. I can say that I have walked through the valley of the shadow of death, barefoot over broken glass and hot coals with the hell hounds on my heels, most of the time with no belief that escape or even a better life was a possibility for me – for others maybe but not for me – and yet here I am having a coffee in Starbucks in Park Slope. Alive, reaching my hand back to grab onto and pull ahead anyone willing and able to reach their hand out.
To borrow and change up a bit from the Friends of Bill W. : I am responsible, when anyone anywhere reaches out for help I want my hand to be one of the hands in the village there for them in any way I am able.
