Before I discovered and started living my true purpose — even though my life looked great on the outside — I was unfulfilled, living other people’s ideas of success.
– I attended Harvard…
– Won a gold medal in rowing…
– Crushed it as a consultant on Wall Street…
– Built a successful company as an entrepreneur…
– Got married, had two kids…
I was on track to live the American Dream with a 7-figure income and a weekend house in the country.
But deep inside, I was actually confused, although I didn’t want to admit it. I had this gut feeling that my life held a deeper meaning. It was like a nagging itch I couldn’t quite scratch.
I knew, somehow, I was meant to do something that really made an impact.
I just didn’t know what it was, or how to do it. So, even while I was living with the outward signs of success, I went on an inward journey to discover the meaning of MY life.
I searched high and low…
– In Christianity, as a born-again Evangelical minister…
– In Jesuit Seminary, as I contemplated becoming a Roman Catholic priest…
– With psychedelic drugs, in the nightlife of New York City…
– In meditation, 8 hours a day in ashrams in India…
– As a Swami, initiated in the Osho center in Pune…
– With Shamans and indigenous medicine ceremonies…
– As a raw food vegan…
– And in book after book on spirituality and personal development…
I learned a lot from all of this searching, but I still didn’t have clarity. I still didn’t know how to build the life I really wanted.
Then, in a strange turn of events, I found what I was looking for.
The day after my marriage collapsed and my life felt broken, I went out to a party in Brooklyn. There, someone casually introduced me to the real meaning of the playing cards as an ancient system of knowledge by which we can read the meaning of our lives.
I was skeptical at first, but I was shocked at how accurately it described me.
The clarity it offered was penetrating and palpable. It hit me so hard, I wanted to learn more.
I started investigating this system of knowledge, but there’s very little written about it. Eventually, through my own research and meditation, I realized that the deck of cards is actually the ancient Book of Life, hidden in plain sight.
This ancient little Book clarifies who we are, so that instead of self-doubt and confusion, we know exactly how to bring forth our best.
In the Book of Life, I am born to play the 9 of Hearts and the 7 of Clubs.
My Birth Card, the 9 of Hearts indicates for me, a life path of passionate paradigm shifts, moving through many crossroads, with new chapters and new adventures, all in search of personal transcendence.
The 7 of Clubs as my Personality Card, indicates an interest in spiritual knowledge, the bigger picture that connects the dots and puts all the pieces in place.
Taken together, the 9 of Hearts and the 7 of Clubs means a life path of personal transcendence in search of spiritual knowledge.
And just like that, my life made complete sense.
I found the clarity I was looking for, and I got clear on the action I wanted to take.
And for me, playing MY cards right means helping people who are at a crossroads in life transcend their insecurities, trust their inner genius, and live their soul’s purpose.
So, I set up a professional coaching practice to do just that.
I love helping people master THEIR game of life, based on their own cards to play. You see, we all have different cards to play, which means we have different life paths, and different ways to express our unique gifts.
So, maybe like me, you have a deep sense there’s more to your life, something big you haven’t done yet.
But, maybe you’re not sure if you’re just kidding yourself with delusions of grandeur. Maybe you think you should just settle and be happy with what you have.
Or quite possibly, you’re caught-up in busy-ness, feeling overwhelmed and unable to clarify your life’s direction.
As long as you’re willing and open, I can show you this extraordinary toolkit called the Book of Life. I can help you use this toolkit to clarify your life and build the life you long for.
But, as in all mythology, there is always a fearsome dragon that guards the gold. It may not be easy for you to overcome your fears and doubts, even with my help.
And yet, it’s the most important work of your life. It’s the best investment you will ever make: to give your all to slay your fearful dragons.
Me, I’m a dragon slayer.
And I can help you slay yours too. If you trust me and follow my guidance, I’ll help you break through the veil of your illusions to find the imperishable treasure within.
It’s then that you’ll be tapped in to a living force of shining, inexhaustible energy – an energy that surges deep within you. It’s how you activate your natural resonance, your optimal flow state. And once you do, it creates a cascading domino effect of positive results in your life.
It means you’ll be excited to jump out of bed each morning, confident and clear in who you are, happy within yourself, at peace in your relationships, more productive, and yet, more relaxed at the same time.
It’s you. Elevated.
Blossoming into your full radiance as a human being.
You’re bigger than that dragon.
I’ll help you see the truth of yourself.
Then, you’ll be set free to do what really matters, to you.
Don’t waste another precious moment of your life…
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.
