Born to an ex-rally driver and former model, I came into this world in the swinging sixties. At the age of four I had a near death experience when I nearly drowned. I was never quite the same after that and didn’t understand why. I felt different and became very sensitive to the environment around me. Although a bit of a loner, I didn’t feel alone – it always felt like there was something or someone with me.
I started on the spiritual path over 25 years ago when I started meditating on a regular basis. It was during these times I would experience a simplistic tranquility, a moment in time with a depth of silence that had an aliveness or ‘presence’ that I simply hadn’t experienced before. There was an inner calling, as if I was being guided towards a greater truth, yet I didn’t know at the time what that was.
It was some years later that I had a calling to be a healer and it was at the start of this journey that I became sick! The doctors didn’t really have the answers and only gave me tablets which made me worse. What I didn’t realise at the time was that during this transition, I had started to clear a lifetime of emotional and physical burden that I had been carrying around all this time.
I was determined to be well and from thereon I immersed myself into the world of alternative health, spirituality and energy healing.
Within three years I had become a Reiki Master and continued to study a further powerful healing modality called Vortex Healing® Energetic Therapy. My physical health started to improve. I explored innumerable different health protocols, supplementation, cleanses, juicing, you name it – I did it!
It was during this time I discovered the powerful link between mind, emotions and the body which led me to train as a performance coach and career coach and with the help of a world class coach and mentor, my life started to change dramatically. I noticed a shift in my perception and became even more intuitive. I then became interested in understanding how the human body functions and was drawn to study Anatomy and Physiology which felt an important part of the work I was to do.
I was still continuing my trainings in Vortex Healing® and life changed yet again during a group expedition to Egypt when I met an Irish man. I went to live in Southern Ireland for 10 years and it was during this time that I became an active ‘seeker’ of truth or ‘enlightenment’. The quest for spiritual enlightenment is by many, considered to be the ultimate quest and the path was long and hard. My research led me to the works of Jed McKenna, Dr David Hawkins, Adyashanti, Ramana Maharshi, Nisargadatta Maharaj and Byron Katie to name a few.
It was in 2012 whilst reading Jed McKenna’s book “Spiritual Enlightenment, The Damnedest Thing” that I had a spontaneous spiritual awakening. It was as if the world disappeared and I was in a void where the human known as Sam simply dropped away and no longer existed. After three days of living on automatic pilot, Sam’s ego came crashing back in, utterly pleased with itself that it had awakened – or so IT thought!! In actual fact, it spent the next four years hanging on for grim death, since the intial awakening opened a door that could never again be closed. The ego’s demise was assured and as the illusion of the old identity ebbed away, the fullness and expression of truth became apparent and in this infinite and exquisite silence, all was known.
It was after 10 years of living in Ireland that I returned to the UK to study psychotherapy as well as Neuro-Linguistic Programming, Time Line Therapy™ and Hypnosis. I continued studying human energy and qualified as an Assemblage Point practitioner with the Assemblage Point Association. All of these modalities became a basis for my coaching and spiritual healing/teaching practice which created an even greater understanding as to the nature of human behaviour and helped me, together with my gift of spiritual healing, discover the root cause of many emotional and physical limitations.
My abilities were certainly tested a few years ago when I completely healed myself of an abnormality which the medical experts suspected was Cancer. With the expertise I had developed over the last 20 years, I created a powerful formula for understanding spiritual health and emotional wellbeing which literally transformed my life and the lives of my clients.
I walk my talk. Everything I do with my clients I have done myself. Whilst everyone is individual, we all have one thing in common. In truth, we are one consciousness having our own unique experience in a seemingly separate form. Once we understand, however, how to let go of the constant running commentary extending from our minds that seem to run and often ruin our lives, we immerse ourselves into a depth of peace and quietude, also known as presence, which is in fact our true essence and the realm of the miraculous.
