MY PERSONAL SOUL ADVENTURE WITH SPIRIT!
"ONCE A STUDENT OF EXTREME LOSS, TRAUMA AND TRAGEDY. NOW A TEACHER OF HOPE, HEALING AND TRANSFORMATIONS!
Through my career and much interaction with death and dying, including my own Near Death Experience (NDE) in a river accident, being present and holding my grandma's hand at the actual time of her passing, to the tragic loss of both my younger brother, my older brother, and my father-in-law, I have been given a front row seat to what society calls death. For those of us who work is spirit, we call this "Discarnate" or existing without a physical body or "Passing," which implies the movement from one state to another. Both professionally and along with my personal experiences with death, the discarnate and those who have passed on has created, conditioned, enhanced my passion to not only be in service to spirit, but to "Explore & Discover through Body, Mind and Spirit," of what is unknown or unseen and be the best messenger of spirit I can be, with the time I have left. I "KNOW" and "FEEL" this life is not the end, but is really just "one leg of an awesome journey,"and a true Soul Adventure! "You had a purpose before anyone had an opinion!" -Marc Lainhart

I did not have a vision, plan or even a 'wanting' in the very beginning of becoming a Clairvoyant Medium, Spiritual Advisor, Radio Show Personality, Metaphysical Teacher or even a Hiking Guide! Doing readings, radio, spiritual hikes, workshops and mentoring others in the fields of Metaphysics and Spirituality, that was for other people! After several years of 'soul searching,' learning, exploring, and discovering many wonderful experiences from what is 'unseen,' the Universe, time to heal and my eventual 'choosing' of my life path became clear as it unfolded right in front of my eyes and actually felt like the right thing to do! I was working hard for many years as my life goal to become a professional firefighter/paramedic, even scoring number one in the eight month testing process for the Seattle Fire Department only to discover my physical body/back could no longer perform the duties required of the job and my early retirement from the fire service. My grandma was right when she told me "the future we imagine for ourselves is not always exactly how we picture it and want it to be."
Most people have lost someone close to them and a few of us may have been witness to a 'Near Death Experience' (NDE). I not only have lost more than a few close friends and family, I have had not one, but two, near death experiences (NDE's) in my life. At some point, one has to wake up and realize there is a larger picture to our lives while here on Earth and that death is not the end of our life, but just the next step in a natural progression and flow of life. This is my story and how a series of tragic events in my family and two near death situations turned my world upside down, and put me on the life path that I am today. As a intuitive coach, spiritual advisor and clairvoyant medium, I work with people in both group and personal readings, spiritual workshops and 1 on 1 mentoring throughout the year to help bring forth balance, direction, positive energy, healing, hope, peace and understanding for those who are "Prospecting", open-minded and are seeking a more fulfilled life. All things are connected and whatever we do to the Tree of Life, we do to ourselves. I can't and will not try to offer you the "Meaning of Life", but I can guarantee we will "Prospect" together so we can further "Explore and Discover YOUR SPIRITUAL GOLD through Body, Mind & Spirit."
My "Spiritual Prospecting" actually began some years back when I was given a front row seat to the pain, suffering and sadness of losing both of my brothers in the same week to murder and brain cancer. My younger brother, Michael at the young age of 21 was taken from us (in his own home) when a robbery went sideways and my older brother Todd was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer at the age 33, that very same week. If life couldn't get any worse for my family, my wife, Jenni and I were witness to the rapid decline of Jenni's father, Don as he slowly passed away from the horrible disease, Multiple Sclerosis at the young age of 48. Think of it emotionally as watching the movies of your life, 'Saving Private Ryan' meets 'Brian's Song' meets 'Terms of Endearment' meets 'The Green Mile', all at the same time!
I knew very little of "living a spiritual life"or tapping into "my natural abilities," and was very lost as I did not know how to respond, understand, processes, analyze, all the tragic events that were unfolding in my life and really went through the motions and beliefs of a Western religion taught to me in school in the United States (think about where you live in the world as this can dictate what your belief system is, which drives your own reality), my childhood upbringing of church on Sunday's, or reading inspiring, historical messages out of a leather bound book. There are many great, historical books out in the world, that are much older than the bibleand I believe there are many pathways to what we would call God, a higher consciousness,Spirit, the Universe, etc., and I teach for "prospectors" to be open-minded and explore, discover and make their own decision and conclusions for what is best for their lives! I have come to learn that prayer is religion and spirituality through meditation is listening back and is a two-way street, done through love and learning, no matter what your beliefs may be. Something was still missing for me however, especially after two close encounters with death, one as a small child and one as an adult. This was the birth of The Intuitive Prospector and my spiritual practice.
My search intensified for answers of what I was experiencing, feeling, hearing and seeing from those who have crossed over and sit on the other side of the 'spiritual veil'and still communicate with us, if we are open to it! I also found out these abilities do run in my family history and I do believe and teach that all of us have special, natural abilities while here on earth and my hope and intent is to express, share, inspire, teach, guide and help others through my personal and professional life experiences, stories, education, and knowledge in the fields of Spirituality, Metaphysics, death and dying or what I call "transference" or "transitioning." I accomplish the work for spirit through my spiritual practice in Seattle, Washington, my radio show; Inspired Living,local hikes, personal readings and mentoring, fun and intuitive workshops, end of life consulting, and spiritual advising. After several years of learning, study, development, self reflection, guidance, confidence and TRUST, I did start to accept my intuitive gifts (and myself as a soul) with the realization that I was not crazy and needed to be "checked in". When I explored further and deeper into spiritual consciousness , I not only discovered a lot about myself, the world around me, but many of my questions were actually being answered!
Through intense bio feedback sessions, past life regression therapy, weekly grievance counseling, advanced spiritual-medium training, graduate level education and personal mentoring with some of the best in their respected fields, it became very clear of what my life path is supposed to be! My focus, energy, direction and goals ever since those dark days of death and dying has been to change this appearance in society that it is "OK", "natural", "manly and cool" to be sensitive to your surroundings, feel the love, energy and vibrations that exists all around us! NO LONGER FEAR DEATH as a loss, but a new beginning! This unique and special life path was opened to me with gifts and abilities to share with others and something I only ever imagined in a Hollywood film. I guess now I know why I went to Star Wars 23 times in the movie theater as a kid, and I am a believer in the "True Life Force", that really does bind all of us together, just like collective branches on the Tree of Life.
