I suffered from chronic back pain for 20 years due to a herniated disc. When I healed it, I realized how much of my life was determined by it. The pain was a lens I viewed the world (and myself) through, but I also saw how my day-to-day life, politics, and even career were all based on things that happened in my childhood.
Feeling robbed of autonomy, I began to investigate (I was a PI at the time) how unseen forces shape who we become. It turns out almost all of our decisions, behaviors, and beliefs are established beneath our conscious awareness. When I realized my present was a reflection of the past, I was able to design my future.
Instead of self-help and personal development, I focus on what I call, Unself Help and Personal Undevelopment. Instead of trying to do more and become more, it's better to do less and undo who you've been. I quit my job as a Private Investigator, became a certified Self-Mastery and yoga instructor, and moved to Costa Rica to rewrite my life.
Today I help others write their story with Scribe Media, and help others rewrite their life through Unself Help.
