After returning to the City of Boston to live in the summer of 95', certain
events started to happen that have changed my life drastically since.
At the time I wasn't quite sure what was happening, but I knew something
was going on in the cosmos, I could sense it. Something that I still have
trouble describing, but knew something had changed, or was "about" too.
There is one day in particular that stands out in my memory. I went down
to this lake and hung out playing my guitar. During this bright, warm,
sunny afternoon, these images started to filter through my head. They
seemed to be more than "images," like a "vibration of essences" that emanated
through the tones. Female essences, goddess' of sort, like that of angels.
The time came to leave and I drove to pick up my girlfriend. I remember
turning to her and telling her that something strange was happening to
me. I remember adding, "It is big." That was all I could seem to say,...."It
The name "SunSpirit" came to me about a year earlier, and I embraced it.
It seemed like a "union" of sorts which served as some sort of connection
to my past,... like that of a bridge, although I had no conscious recollection
why at the time. I began to apply the principles of synchronicity and
intuition in which I was also becoming aware of at the time. I also began
to work with a computer to apply the concept of expressing these 'essences'
that I was now experiencing more frequently. A little while later, I experienced
an empowering vision. It contained the following message. "Through
a world wide communication system, the impressions of the ancient mysteries
and the angelic messages of love and light will spread from one hand,
one mind, one heart,...to another. These gifts would contain activations
of sound, color, light and form that make up art, creativity and expression."
At the time, I still did not realize that the essence of this message
contained a 'title' of sorts, but I was to learn about that interactive
relationship that a person has with a certain image or concept that leaves
an " energetic imprint", a signature of sorts, that is attuned to the
'divine consciousness". It is these activations that act as "triggers"
in awakenings. Attunements to an "At-One-Ment" . I was later to become
aware of this as the 'Universal Language of Light'. Then there was the
internet and the possibility of reaching millions of people world wide.
It is this 'relationship", this "spirituality" that most intrigued me,
especially having had this particular vision.
Like a pandoras box, once activated, there was no going back. The impulses
became frequent, intense, and more defined. By the time the winter of
96' came I was spending days at a run with little sleep driven by these
'visions" of angels and unveiling legends of "ancient teachings." A family
illness struck and my relationship fizzled while my own apartment went
unlived in for the better part of a year. I returned to my family to help
in their care while I continued to work at home. It was a source of inspiration
and healing that helped me to deal with what was happening all arond me
in ways that was difficult for anyone to understand, including myself.
It was here that the angels began to work with me regarding 'intent to
heal' in very intense ways.
During those long winter days and nites of late 95' and early 96', I began
to develope the first designs, getting to know the digital applications
and reading all that I could. Many hours and weeks were spent just on
"feeling" my way through sketches and experimentation. I could not afford
any formal training and just took it upon myself to learn everything I
possibly could at home. This went on for months and then in the spring
of 96' I designed my first web site. The line of art that I was producing
fit perfectly for the medium. I found that for the first time an artist
could produce themselves creatively and most importantly, do it independantly
and relatively cheap compared to conventional methods. Not only this,
but to incorporate all the mediums that I had touched upon throughout
my career as an artist-painting, writing, music- all of it, could now
be incorporated into one singular media. Something I was never able to
do before. This was a whole new world in which the medium itself became
as unlimited as imagination.
I joined with Janine, a.k.a. "MoonEssence," also known as the gallery's
"Goddess of Poem" in 1996 to put together a line of poetry to accompany
the artwork. It was here that I was guided to incorporate the energetic
imprints of 'the word'. MoonEssense was to become the vehicle for this.
There was something of greater importance about this "creative/business
adventure" that I was soon to discover in time. It was this joining of
spirits between the "SunSpirit and Moonessence". An "invocation" of sorts,
although not yet fully aware of it's implications. It is this concept
of joining the Father Spirit/Mother Goddess, represented by the 'Sun and
Moon', to create in the 'unifying spirit of oneness', that I was to spend
the next four years re-discovering and expressing. I went on spending
many months being inspired and guided by these 'angelic esssences', at
times their energies became overwhelming, driving me into periods of extreme
isolation. I found it very difficult to explain to anyone what was happening
to me out of fear of misunderstanding. In the winter of 97' the angelic
visions culminated in the Gallery's "Angel Realms" collection. Then in
July, the mythology renditions came through in full force resulting in
the "Cosmic Mythology' series. It wasn't so much the images themselves,
but what I was sensing and being guided to experience, share, and express
'through them". I was then told to leave my home behind and travel to
California. At one point finding myself alongside a ridge in the California
Sierra Mountains with no money, food, nor 'apprarent reason' for being
there. Seven trips cross country and a three year, forty thousand mile
"pilgramage" ensued. Awakenings upon awakenings. Pandoras box had been
opened, and there was no closing it,... no going back. In time, the reasons
became very clear. Needless to say, my life, nor the way I perceive life,
has never been, nor will ever be the same again.
The following is a prelude to my documented journals that began in June,1997.Preface
to "Atlantis Rising", of which there are many chapters. Some of which
will be re-posted on this web site soon. In addition I have included an
introduction to Part Two:"Return of the White Dove".
Please stay tuned for further postings within this page, or as notified
in the "Gallery Update" page.
