What If Wishes Came True.

When we were still hunters back in the days of the cave man we expected danger.

So we were alert to danger all the time.

Danger was our expectation.

But now, we no longer live in a dangerous jungle.

Or do we?

What if today is the ‘new jungle’?

The ‘concrete jungle’.

The corporate jungle?

The technology jungle?

And it’s Darwin’s survival of the fittest?

We act and make decisions based on survival.

Our own everyday survival.

In a jungle.

Whatever kind of jungle we like to call it.

But what if we were to remove the jungle?

In our minds.

Because that’s what it is.

The jungle of our imagination.

What if we don’t participate in this jungle mentality.

Think differently.

What if we don’t think – and act – as if we are about to be attacked by a lion.

We do have that choice.

It’s only the information around us that says otherwise.

Even if our data gets compromised.

Even if the company we’re subscribed to gets hacked.

We have the choice not to participate.

It’s what the stories keep telling us.

What we wish for might come true.

Both the good and the bad.

And we can choose what we wish for.

“You have discerned an amazing story”.


Who was the ghost whose pleas needed to be heard? Was this the secret wife of a British Royal wanting her story to be told 200 years later? What was her message? How can I explain the endless fortunate timing, the lucky appearance of people and places that moved my story along?

What words of wisdom do I offer along the way to explain spiritual and metaphysical events. I invite you to read and enjoy my *fun and entertaining* true story titled ‘Man Steps Off Planet’.

Read of my unplanned and unexpected serendipitous discoveries that led me to people and adventures I had never dreamed I would find. “You have discerned an amazing story,” said Writer’s Digest.


Here’s how it all began. As I headed for the hills, away from my family, my freelance business now bankrupt, my hopes and dreams, I might just as well have stepped off the planet into another world. I had to learn a new way to live. What can you learn from my experiences? Without any plan, without any guide as to how to survive when broke, I sailed forth on an unexpected adventure that transformed me and my world.


What secrets were uncovered, what historical mysteries revealed, in this unpredictable book about what happened next, full of twists and turns. Hidden evidence was revealed when an innocent ancestry search mixed with 3 mysterious messages each with 3 clues plus the appearance of a real ghost with a critical clue combined to set up an unexpected historical mystery from Regency England 200 years ago.


What life messages, what spiritual wisdom, what historical intrigues did I learn in my untypical fun romantic paranormal historical true mystery world adventure? Read my struggle for survival, the extraordinary events that happened after bankruptcy, the fun and the drama as I describe every moment as it unfolded. This is an adventure for its time. Learn from my amazing story how you, too, can survive and live the good life as if this was another planet. It’s a page turner.


“It’s got everything it needs to be a blockbuster: romance, history, the paranormal . . . big stories like this are difficult to tell.” Judge, Writer’s Digest 21st Annual Self-Published Book Awards, USA.

“This is a fun and entertaining manuscript. The characters are fabulous, as is the storyline. I am impressed with your imagination, writing skills and storytelling ability. The readers will truly love this material.” Writers Literary & Publishing Service, USA.

85% Of Us Hate Our Jobs. 2 In 3 Of Our Kids Are Bored At School. What’s Wrong With This Picture?

Why can’t we create the kind of world we all clearly want?

Like not hating our jobs.

Where our kids aren’t bored at school.

A big ask?

Yes. It’s a big problem.

I wonder if that’s not the elephant in the room of our world of increasing illness, mental issues, depression and suicide.

At present, it’s philosophical, speculation, I suggest, a spiritual answer to the question, what’s wrong with this picture?

At the same time aren’t those statistics a real problem?

Does anyone care?

There’s an interesting spiritual concept I want to play over to you.

What if, for example, we’re born with a Plan.

Let’s say, a decision is made for every one of us – we’re there at the meeting – as to the Plan for our life.

This Plan is based on who we are, our previous skills in past lives, where we’ve been, what we’d like to achieve this lifetime, how we aim to achieve all that.

Then we’re born, into a life and an environment best suited to begin our planned adventure.

Yes, adventure.

Let’s say, too, that in order to spare us the weight of having the details of our entire life’s Plan the moment we are born, that it is broken into 7 episodes.

And that those 7 episodes are spread through our life once every 7 years.

We can expect to live the first 7 years getting to know our new environment, to learn from those formative years and from the people in it everything we need to grow and survive before we are burdened with conditioning from outside.

Then, every 7 years another episode is released into our internal knowledge bank.

It’s how we grow and learn.

Until the age of 49.

So that is, 7×7=49.

The second episode of the Plan comes at puberty.

That’s age 14.

Next at 21 we ‘become of age’.

Then 28, 35, 42 and 49.

They’re all significant years.

By best age in life was 35, my one-man small business went bankrupt at 49.

Mid-life crisis comes at around 49, when the final update arrives.

What about you?

Why don’t we consider rearranging our lives – and our growth – around the 7×7 model.

Find Your Passion, Make It Happen

Why can’t our learning revolve around allowing our children to find and pursue their passions, doing what they enjoy, finding their innate skills.

This would be part of the Plan, their Destiny.

There are proven examples of this in Montessori Schools and Rudolph Steiner Schools.

Why can’t school programs tie in with the 7 year injections of the Plan for school kids.

Which would mean at age 7 and 14 internal changes could be recognised and planned for without teenagers having to struggle with not only hormonal changes but outdated parental conditioning and expectations.

It’s how we can create a more compassionate understanding of teenagers.

Same with us.

Your work, your job, your career, should be your passion, something you love doing every day.

If 85% of us go through life hating what we do, how is that in the interests of society?

Of our health and wellbeing?

And for productivity?

I’m asking whether we all need to live lives that follow the Plan I spoke about, a Destiny that was created before we are born, the perfect Plan that holds our best interests at heart.

Then would 85% of us hate what we do for a living?

Would 2 in 3 high school kids dislike school because of boredom?

And then would our world still be so overwhelmed by mental illness, depression and tragic suicides?

Is this the elephant in the room of society today?

What do you think.
