I have never written or created anything. All of my work has been automatic, directly channeled from source. As such, each piece contains codes for multidimensional realization, which is consciousness expansion. Commercial publishers have either encouraged the re-packaging of the work into more traditional forms and/or omitting image accompaniments. This would render these experimental works incomplete so I release them here as downloadable PDFs.

journal, poems + images 2019
In 2015, I started having back pain and experiencing strange psychic phenomenon–both of which I recognize now as the genesis of my spiritual awakening. By the fall of 2018, the back problem had spiraled into a condition affecting my nervous system, making it impossible to be around light, sounds or move around without extreme fatigue. Unable to work, I left New York to stay with family in Cleveland. Around Christmas, I was instructed via dreams to go to Ecuador to work with a Shaman who, in a circuitous way, ended up saving my life. My healing process has involved re-visiting these images and extracting new meaning from them, as much of the visual and written language is coded and layered symbolically.

The table of contents is also a prologue, or living map transformed by the limits of design in relation to your journey through this book. Mapping out these limitations through images, section breaks and italicized headings on the left of each page is my attempt at providing you with more possibilities in reading–a frame that zooms in and out on an embodied whole.
