I grew up on a large diary farm in Wisconsin. When I was young we had one of the largest dairy farms in the area. We had to have one of the largest farms in the area since I grew up in a very large family. My Father had to provide for his family of nine children through farming. Farm families were quite large where I grew up so the children could help with the farm work. I had five brothers and three sisters and I was the oldest of my brothers and my Father’s right-hand man.
Farming was a very labor intensive career. There was always work to be done and never did a day go by when the cows did not have to be milked, fed, and bedded. Because I was the oldest of my brothers my Father looked to me at a very early age to help him run the farm. Because of my Father needed me to help him on the farm I missed having a childhood and had to grow up at a young age. There was always work to be done on the farm and my Father could not manage all the farm work by himself. By the age of five I was getting up at 5 am to help my Father in the barn. By the time I was 7 years old I was driving tractors and helping tilling the farm fields and growing the crops to feed and support our dairy cows.
I grew up with the belief that life was synonymous with work. To me all there was to life was work. You got up at 5 am and worked all day in the farm fields. In the early evening, you did more work. The dairy cows had to be milked and fed and around 10 pm the workday was done. You then went to bed and started all over again the next day. Farming was certainly like being stuck in the movie with Bill Murray called Groundhog Day. Farming was a 7 day a week job and by the time I was 10 years old I already had an unflinching work ethic and a belief system that work defined who you were.
At a very early age I had it drilled into my head that the way to accomplish what you wanted in life was to work hard for it. If you wanted something you worked for it. There was no such thing as a free lunch. What happened to you and what you received was because of how hard you worked for it. Work defined who you were and you only had yourself to blame if you didn’t get what you wanted. When the going gets tough, the tough get going was a saying I heard over and over as a child.
Work and responsibility became ingrained in me. I didn’t know a different life. Being brought up with sayings such as “When work gets tough, the tough get going” and “You are what you do” it is easy to get it ingrained into your psyche that work is your identity and self-worth. People around the farming community, that I grew up in, were looked down on and considered bums or worthless if they didn’t work hard. The image of the German farmer community that I grew up in was that you worked hard and you provided for your family. You got what you deserved; you made your destiny by working hard!
I found myself in a very small world of work and church. My life was really structured and very few people made up my world. My life was working on the farm and going to church Sunday mornings. I went to a parochial grade school so I got plenty of religion drilled into my head and knew that I was a sinner. I sinned so many times that I figured God was never going to forgive me that I might just as well have fun here. I started to rebel in my middle teens because I hated my life. I didn’t have a life; it was nothing but work.
My Father hated farming too. I am sure he felt trapped into the occupation of farming as every one that didn’t get a college degree went into farming. Since my father did not have an opportunity to go to college he had to take up farming. But he quickly got bored of farming and passed it off onto me at a very early age. He took a job with the local sawmill cutting trees in the forest. He liked working outside the farm a lot better and I was soon the person running and managing the farm. It was a lot of responsibility for such a young boy.
By the time I was 16 I was so sick of farm work and responsibility that I wanted to run away. The only thing that gave me comfort was nature and my dog Smokey. I could talk to my dog and nature comforted me and soothed my anger. When my senior year of high school came and I told my parents I wanted to go to college. They were dead set against it. My parents wanted me to get married and take over the farm. I wanted no part of that. First off, I didn’t know any girls as I had never even been on a date with a girl because I had been stuck on the farm for the first 18 years of my life. I was positive that I didn’t want to be a farmer and was told that because I didn’t listen to my parents I was going to hell. I could not wait to get away from home as the pressure to take over the farm was immense. The only survival skills I had at the time was to rebel and run away from the farm.
My running took me to college but it took me a while to find myself. I had lived in such a structured environment growing up that it took years to figure out what I wanted to do. I got heavily into drinking for a while after leaving the farm. I had to escape the guilt that I felt in my mind. Also I didn’t have to work long hours every day so my new found freedom allowed me to interact with other college students and women. I eventually graduated from college with a degree in forest management and took a job as a Forest Ranger. While I enjoyed working outside in the forest I quickly became bored after about five years with my job. Being a Forest Ranger no longer challenged me and I went back to graduate school.
I needed a new challenge and really enjoyed the areas of engineering and quantum physics. I studied these topics in my free time and felt that quitting my forestry career and going back to college was just the thing I needed to do. I embarked upon the path of studying physics and electrical engineering in graduate school and soon found myself with my doctorate in electrical engineering and physics. These were fascinating subjects and so much of these areas were left to be discovered. Quantum physics and electrical engineering were not yet subjects that were being looked at in the area of healing. That was to come about ten years later.
With my work ethic that I had instilled within me as at an early age I climbed the latter of success quickly. Before I knew it I was in a Dean position at a major university. I was a Dean for over ten years even though I did not enjoy managing people that much. My upbringing told me that moving up in the world and becoming successful meant taking on more responsibility. Even if I didn’t like my job I was somebody because I was in an important position; I was in a position of leadership! Luckily fate intervened and put me on a different orbit.
My wife left me; I had to file for bankruptcy; and was overcome with exhaustion from trying to hold my life together. From these hard times, or should I say gifts, came a new me that was focused in a different direction. I stepped down from my Dean position and took a faculty position so I could help young students learn. I loved teaching and found the classroom much more invigorating than sitting in meetings listening to everybody complaining about how they were being discriminated against.
When I went back to a faculty position I took my quantum physics and electrical engineering background and started to apply it to the area of healing myself. I was totally exhausted but new I was nothing but energy and was responsible for how I felt. I embarked into the metaphysical fields of hypnosis, Reiki, quantum touch, and Integrated Energy Therapy. I also studied under some really good clairvoyant masters such as Sonia Choquette and Doreen Virtue.
From the ashes of my divorce and bankruptcy came a new found love of my psychic and intuitive abilities. Studying under Sonia Choquette and Doreen Virtue helped me increase and hone my intuitive abilities. When I was a dean I usually knew what people were going to ask me or talk to me about before the meeting even took place. They would be coming to my office and I would start getting intuitive hits or messages on what they were going to ask me and talk to me about. I felt in my gut what really was going on and not the spin they were putting on the meeting. I was using my natural intuitive abilities when I was dean and they served me well. By following my intuitive messages or gut instincts I made very good decisions. One very good decision was to get out of the dean position so I could pursue intuitive healing methodologies.
I focused on my clairvoyant abilities and strengthened them greatly over the years. Studying and practicing with master psychics really increased my psychic abilities. Currently I have a thriving business doing clairvoyant readings and am moving into the area of intuitive healing. I have finished one year of studying with Deborah King and her 21st Century Energy Medicine Program and am amazed at the results that I am getting by focusing on the energy of my clients.
We are all made up of energy therefore sickness starts when our energetic field is not balanced. As I become better at reading and sensing a client’s energy I am able to help them heal before their sickness really takes hold in their body. Sickness first enters a person’s aura before it goes into their body. Increasing my intuitive healing abilities has been a really exciting journey and continues to amaze me every day. My background in quantum physics and electrical engineering gives me an analytical perspective of the problem while my intuitive skills give me an emotional and feeling perspective of the problem. What a fascinating journey I have been on and I look forward to how my life unfolds. I hope you join me on my fascinating journey.
While my background in physics and electrical engineering gave me a solid foundation in the sciences I always thought there was more to us and the interactions between people. When taking a graduate course in quantum physics I realized the classical laws of physics often times do not apply. There was a whole new set of “metaphysical” laws waiting to be discovered. Albert Einstein took us far but so many questions remain. These remaining questions are what got me interested in using energy to heal. With my background in physics and electrical engineering it has been a wonderful journey using my knowledge in the metaphysical areas of healing. I hope you join me on this incredible journey that I describe in my book!

Hypnotherapy is therapy that is undertaken when the person is under hypnosis. Hypnotherapy is often applied to modify and improve a subject’s behavior, mood, attitude, and performance. It is often used to help a person get rid of addictions, pain management, anxiety, stress-related illnesses, and personal development.
Reiki is a healing practice that originated in Japan. Reiki Masters place their hands lightly on or just above the person receiving treatment, with the goal of facilitating the person’s own healing response. People use Reiki to promote overall health and well-being. Reiki is also used by people who are seeking relief from disease-related symptoms and the side effects of conventional medical treatments.

Six Sensory Practitioner™
Intuition is our highest level of communicating, intelligence, and gives us the ability to make our best decisions. Our intuition perceives the subtle energy that is around us. By using our intuition we can read our own energy, people we are interacting with, and the situation that we are involved in. Thus we get better and more accurate information or intelligence than a person who is only using their five senses. Thus intuition allows us to negotiate and navigate through situations and life; we have the ability to negotiate the rough and tumble confusion and chaos of life with grace and precision. I have gone through the highest level of training offered by Sonia Choquette and am able to tap into your energy field and get messages from your energetic vibrations.
