I died and came back to life.
After years of enjoying great success in my career as a heart anesthesiologist, I was very focused on the material, worldly effects of financial rewards. I had a big house, luxury cars, and the best of everything!
But several years ago, I had a profound near-death experience (NDE) during surgery that led to a personal spiritual awakening. I was saved on Christmas Day, 2010, and it transformed my life forever. (For more about this, see my best-selling book “Dying to Wake Up: A Doctors Voyage Into the Afterlife and the Wisdom He Brought Back”).
During this NDE, I left my body and entered a realm of consciousness beyond our physical lives. I experienced truths that shattered my entire world view.
As a result, I left my career as former Chief of Anesthesiology at Bakersfield Heart Hospital to study holistic paths toward healing the mind, body and spirit.
It was such a rude awakening to find that my own physical healing was activated not by the prescription medications that I myself had prescribed to thousands of patients as a conventional pain management expert.
Instead, I found that it was the practice of meditation and the adoption of Ayurveda that healed me. Through a holistic path of healing, I managed my pain without medications, came out of my depression, and completely physically healed myself through the lessons I learned in my NDE.
Then, Life tested me again…
My Heart was Broken
After my NDE, I thought I had it all figured out!
But then, seemingly out-of-the-blue, my wife told me she didn’t love me anymore.
At that point, I began to doubt everything I thought I knew. I was absolutely devastated and heart-broken. I suffered from chest pains, rumination, poor sleep, and symptoms of PTSD. I felt victimized by love and all consumed with emotional pain.
But after the initial shock and grief subsided, I was able to look inward and find my power. I saw my role in the demise of my marriage.
As the days passed and our anger and vengeance ebbed, I finally heard the heartbreak in my wife’s voice in a new way. I heard her anger and frustration with me. And I realized that I had broken her heart as well, even if unconsciously. And perhaps it was I that started us down the road that brought us to impending divorce.
Thank goodness I saw the opportunity to apply the lessons I learned from my NDE.
I knew that the only way to change my relationship and thrive in love again was to change myself.
And so I embarked upon a journey to heal my broken heart and grow in compassion, forgiveness, and love. It was not easy—it was painful like childbirth.
But now my wife and I have a new marriage, a better relationship than we ever had. The abundance of love and joy is staggering!
My old relationship had to die before we could experience this new love.
And so I set out to become the best healer and coach I could be. I studied and learned new ways to apply the timeless wisdom shared with me during my near death experience. I took a vow of bodhisattva service, “seva” —as a heartbreak healer and love coach— helping the brokenhearted heal, and become empowered to thrive in love again.
Your deepest pain will become your greatest joy.
