Daniel was born in Victoria B.C. as an only child whose parents divorced while he was young. During his childhood he lived within two different families with two very separate ideologies - one being a very religious Christian family and the other, more secular and worldly. His innate sensitivity as an empath challenged him to find inner peace, even as his outer world challenged him being raised between two realms and living in two different mindsets. He discovered pain within him which he felt was tied to his family lineage from Ireland. He reflected on his feelings of inner anguish, understanding the journey of establishing one self in a new country, similarly feeling between two worlds.
As he searched for his own independence, he found that he loved everybody and that the love within him overflowed at times. Then he experienced waves of sadness and periods of depression that he felt was the physical manifestation of the ancestral pain. He yearned to step out of confusion and find something unique for himself as he struggled with information that he didn't know how to deal with.
This triggered the decision to become worldly and expand through escaping into the physical experience. He wanted to walk through it, knowing instinctively it would lead back to a place he wanted to be. He felt the opening of his heart centre and more accepted by the world. When he felt he had received enough of the world, he held up his hands and asked, What is my path? He asked the Universe and God to reveal itself/himself to him. Then he began to notice and collect the little signs and signals he was shown, like hearts or inspiring book titles. He collected these pieces for a year, building a scrap book.
He was lead to embark on yogic practices to find heart centred ways to reclaim his spirit. He began to redefine his definition of divine connection, to understand the polarities of his inner journey. Then he found Reiki and chakra knowledge, and studied to achieve Reiki mastery in just one year. He finished his diploma in classical music and became a certified Hatha and laughing yoga teacher with intention to pursue becoming a sound healer, musical therapist and performance artist. Spirit has begun to fast forward his life.
Now, he is on a good path, exactly where he is meant to be and accepting of moments of bliss intermingled with moments of chaos. Its all healthy, healing and healed, he says. Through everything that he does, he feels granted opportunities to help others which he always answers, mindfully allowing what spirit moves through him. He offers conversation, Reiki healing and heartfelt acknowledgement which further connects him to his divine path and spirit. These days he lets go and creates his visions and dreams by expressing his heart further. Daniel is Otherly. Because It Matters.
