What is your creative mission?
My spiritual practice based out of Seattle, Washington, was created to help and serve others to promote an awesome lifestyle for many “Spiritual Prospectors” looking for their own personal “Spiritual Gold,” and to live, learn, and love each day through many “Soul Adventures”.
What do you love about what you do?
My work as a Radio Show Host, Hiking Guide, Diver, Metaphysical Teacher, Holistic Healer, Inspirational Thought Leader, and Writer are to serve, guide, teach, transform, and inspire others in connecting to spirit, self, and this wonderful world around us! With my own Near Death Experience (NDE) and several personal tragedies, Marc has spent the last several years deciphering and demystifying the sensational subject matter of death and dying, and now strives to help others from around the world tap into and flex their own intuitive muscles and abilities.
What have you learned from your successes/ failures?
Through intense biofeedback 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 what my life’s 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,” and even “cool,” to be sensitive to your surroundings, spirit, what is unseen, and embrace your abilities as you would your other five senses.
I accomplish this passion, love, and working for spirit on a daily basis through deep meditations, Qigong energy exercises, personal readings, lectures, speaking engagements, personal mentoring and development, fun and intuitive workshops, local-spiritual hikes, daily inspirational writings, and many personal healing sessions throughout the year.
How do you keep pushing ahead after a difficult challenge?
From the Berkeley Psychic Institute (BPI) in sunny California, to the Omega Institute for Spiritual Living in beautiful Rhinebeck, New York, to the historical countryside of the United Kingdom at the Author Findlay College in Stansted, England, my journeys, adventures, and experiences over the last few years have molded and shaped my spiritual life path to this day.
Have you ever encountered resistance from family, friends, or the world in general? How did you overcome those kinds of blocks?
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 ‘The Intuitive Prospector.’
How has your art and creativity healed you?
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! LIFE = Learn If From Experience…
