How do I book an appointment with you?
Simple. Click on this Schedule Now button and select the appointment you want. The system will ask to put a hold on your credit card. Your card is not charged. It will only be charged if you miss your appointment without giving 24 hours notice.
I just read your About page. Did you really do all that? How old are you?
Yes, I really did do all that and much more, actually. Those are just the highlights. I really and truly did search everywhere and do everything I could to find the meaning of my life.
I was struck to the core with the phrase Carpe Diem while still in high school. And, I have always endeavored to seize the day, so as not to, in the words of Henry David Thoreau, “come to the end of my life and realize I had not truly lived.” I was born in London, England on August 30th, 1973 at approximately 5 PM.
What do you mean by The Book of Life?
The ordinary deck of playing cards is none other than the ancient Book of Life. It’s been hidden in plain sight, which is of course the best place to hide anything.
It’s a book without a binding, a book of numbers and symbols that represents a mathematical model of our lives on earth.
In the Middle Ages, it was persecuted by the Church as “The Devil’s Picture Book.” But, in fact, it is none other than The Book of Life, the same Book of Life that is referenced more than 20 times in the Bible.
How are your Consultations with these playing cards, the Book of Life, different from Tarot Card readings?
The main difference is that the playing cards are a mathematical model. I am using mathematics to discern which are your 13 cards to play for life.
A Tarot reading is based on divination, where you shuffle and pull cards. A Tarot reading usually aims to be predictive of future outcomes. I do not predict the future with my readings. What I do is tell you the highest essence of who you are, what pattern you are playing out in this game of life.
The ordinary deck of playing cards reveals the mathematical matrix that we live in on this planet. By learning to find our place in this mathematical matrix, we find the exact coordinates of our life. We find out exactly what our purpose in life is. And, we can find out exactly what our strengths and weaknesses are. This is what I offer in the readings I do.
I am not doing any shuffling and pulling of cards. Your cards to play are based on the esoteric mathematical algorithms. And, these are preset. They don’t change. But, we can find out what they are. And, we can always choose how we want to play them.
So, what are your “cards to play,” and what do they mean?
My primary game is indicated as the 9 of Hearts. And, my personality is indicated as the 7 of Clubs. The 9 of Hearts can mean emotional tragedy. It can mean endless wounding of the heart. And, this was certainly my experience growing up, not understanding why I felt everything so deeply.
The gift of the 9 of Hearts is to transcend personal limitations. The purpose of the 9 of Hearts is to help other people do the same. So, my purpose in life is to help other people transcend their own self-imposed limitations so they can step up and play big in their lives.
The 7 of Clubs means spiritual knowledge. Or, it can mean self-doubt and self-judgment. And, I certainly had plenty of that growing up too. The gift of the 7 of Clubs is a genius for making mental connections that no-one else sees. Hence, the purpose of the 7 of Clubs is to be a way-shower of knowledge.
It was when I found out the meaning of my cards that I found the meaning of my life.
It was then that I set up a professional practice to play my own cards right. What I did was set up a practice that leverages the gift of the 9 of Hearts to help other people transcend personal limitations and play big in their lives. And, the way I help people step up and play big is by sharing spiritual knowledge, the 7 of Clubs, that helps them to see something about themselves in a new light.
Pretty cool, right? By playing my own cards right, I help other people to do the same.
And that’s my professional practice.
In the Daily Activation emails you send out each day, where do those cards come from?
Every single day of the year is mathematically connected to a “card.” Each “card” has a numeric value associated to it. For instance, the 9 of Clubs has a numeric value of 22.
All of the “cards” have a number value from 1 – 52. Every day of the year adds up to a number value. When we put that number into a simple mathematical formula, it generates a number associated to one of the “cards.” That “card” is the main energy at play that day.
And, the person born on that day has that “card” as their Birth Symbol for life. The rest of us get to play that energy for a day. But, someone born on that day is playing that game for life, underlying all the other daily, monthly and yearly games of their life.
The personality “card” of each day is determined by which planetary influence is present that day. So, the mathematics of this ancient knowledge overlaps with astrology as well. And it’s the astrological influence that indicates the additional personality “card” at play each day.
So, everyone born on the same day has the same cards to play for life? How can that be?
Yes, everyone born on the same day has the same identical 13 “cards to play” for life.
How we “play our cards” though is entirely up to you.
I’ve met twins, who are “playing the same cards,” and one of them is in jail and one of them is a holistic healer. Each “card” has two binary opposite energies, and many shades of grey in between. Whichever energy of the “card” you choose to activate with your own free will is the kind of life you will create for yourself.
You can’t change your “cards to play” but you can “play your cards right.” And, how you choose to “play your cards” will be greatly influenced by your DNA imprint, your family, your upbringing, your religion, your schooling etc.
Ultimately, it’s our own beliefs that determine how we play our cards.
Do my “cards” ever change?
We have 13 “cards” for our whole life. Those don’t ever change in this lifetime.
But, every year on our birthday, we have a new set of 13 “cards to play” just for this year.
Our lifetime “cards” are still in play. But, we have specific challenges and opportunities presented to us each year of our life. And, of course, it’s game-changing to get clear on what those are so we can “play our cards right” each year.
We also pass through 7-year cycles and 13-year cycles. And, we have specific cycles of “cards to play” for these cycles of life. In these cycles of life, we can see the forces that shape our overall development. We can see what our strong suits are. And, we can see what patterns of our childhood influenced who we have become as adults. People who do these 7-year cycle readings with me say that they got more from this one reading than from years of psychotherapy.
If you want to find out your yearly cards to play, I recommend joining our Players Club. It’s free to join.
Where do these playing cards come from? And how old are they?
If you look on wikipedia, it says that the playing cards date back to ancient Egypt or China. From the research I’ve done, it seems that the playing cards have been around for as long as we’ve had recorded history.
In other words, as soon as we have any recorded history, these cards are present in that historical record. So, it stands to reason that they are older than any written history we have, which would place them at least as old as 5000 BC. It also makes them significantly older than the Bible.
There has been very little written about the real meaning of these “cards.” In fact, they were deliberately kept secret and passed down only as an oral tradition among a secret society called The Order of The Magi. If you are familiar with the story of Jesus’ birth in the Bible, then you know he was visited by three Magi, or three wise men.
If you want to read more about the history of these playing cards, I suggest you pick up a copy of my book: Play Your Cards Right: A Sacred Guide To Life On Earth.
Why do you sometimes place the word “cards” in quotation marks?
It’s important to remember that what we are actually describing is a timeless system of knowledge.
That these 52 symbols happen to be printed on cardstock paper and laminated with plastic is irrelevant to what they really are. I place the word “cards” in quotes to indicate that they are not cards at all.
In fact, the deck of playing cards is really the ancient Book of Life. It’s an ancient Book. And, it has no binding on it.
And, actually, the first ways that this timeless knowledge would have been recorded was on stone, or clay tablets or even ivory tablets. This ancient mathematical knowledge was inscribed on tablets long before it was placed on card stock.
How long have you been doing this work professionally?
I started in 2010, and I have been professionally coaching and teaching the real meaning of the playing cards since then.
Before that, I co-founded and co-directed a holistic health center in Manhattan. We started that in 2006. It was very successful and is still going. I sold my stake in it in 2009.
In those days, I did health coaching and energy healing work. My main offering was something I called Quantum Healing. It’s a combination of crystal healing, sound healing and shamanic journeying. And, I still offer it as part of my Inner Transformation Coaching Program.
Are you a real wizard?
My kids used to ask me this question a lot. And, I wasn’t sure how to answer it. After a while, I decided to answer, “Yes, I am. I have the job of a wizard. My job is to help people make magic in their lives. I use my magic to help them make magic for themselves.”

Living An Elevated Life
We realize our full potential in life -- not by straining to overachieve, outperform, or 10x our productivity, which only takes us out of our natural sweet spot and leads to stress and burnout -- but by coming alive in the essential flow of who we are. In our optimal flow state, we naturally elevate.
