What is it you would like to know about me? What do you NEED to know about me in order to feel comfortable adding me to your circle of people who will bring benefit to your life both short term and long term?
Everybody has a story, right? So here's mine.
I am, after all, a passionate person. If you have not done so yet, It is my hope that you too can discover your passions, or rediscover them and learn to live your life in harmony with your passions. It's easy to lose them along the way, isn't it?
I am an artist, among a handful of other things that I am gifted to do, and believe I was created and sent here to be an artist whether it is working with colors and shapes on paper or canvas, or in working in the healing arena of soul art, helping others find their own voice and eternally rooted expression as a Growth Facilitator. I practice my craft regularly, looking for ways to develop my expression to its highest possible excellence,
I have functioned as a Life Coach since personally encountering the Son of God and subsequently experiencing my own liberation in 1970. Though we didn't call it life coaching at that time, the work that fascinated me was the same. exact work. Any more, I prefer to be known as a "Growth Facilitator" with a Theocentric center.
It is passion that led me then in my education, in pursuing a degree in Theology and then passion that led me to church planting and passion that engaged me in twelve years of pastoral ministry and life counseling. Then after departing the mold of classical ministry, it was passion that moved me to continue being interested in people, helping them find their sweet spot in life and it was the same people passion that led me to 25+ years coaching athletic teams from T-Ball through High School sports, on to Pro-Am level athletes competing for highly prized championships.
What Qualifies Rand In The World of Art Or That Of Life Coach/Growth Facilitator?
These passions are the secret sauce that fuel my life just as your own passions whether, known, buried, forgotten or suppressed internally or externally are yours too. I would love the opportunity to help.
I can tell you first that I am a dedicated devotee to one of the great cities on planet earth known as Seattle, Washington in the U.S.A. I was handed the privilege of being born and raised here, moving away in my younger years and exploring the world at large, and then ultimately returning in the early 1980's after a 12 year absence at which time I experienced an abrupt end of Phase #1 of my journey during which time I began the pursuit of my spiritual interests with a deep and lasting passion.
Theocentric - What Does That Mean?
My educational degree is in Theology (the research of available states between God and humanity) so, is it any wonder that my deep interest would involve the release of people to personally interact with the pulse of all Existence as it relates to their own state in day to day life? Theocentric means I believe there are things about our lives that have their root in an arena that transcends the present, finding their beginning somewhere in the deep recesses of God.
When I speak of Theocentric living, I'm talking about the unique expression of the vast image and likeness of God that transcends the small box world of time and space as we currently know it and living from a state of being that is divine.
In the Son of God teachings Jesus often spoke of the little children and in one instance explained that a child's angel was always beholding the face of God.. Angel's, being bearers of a word from God, infers that every child is born with a message or word, a personally assigned angel rooted in the supernatural realm, issuing a message to them from the face of God, the very Source of infinite and unbound life. This brings up some interesting questions as the teachings then instruct you and I to be converted and change our course, going back again to that childlike state.
As a person discovers and begins to walk in their own space of Theocentric living, resonating together with what turns out to be their own designed fountain of unique refreshing, their level of creativity is released to begin to stream through them at what I like to call the velocity of life!
The same answer applies to all questions like this. The answer is first of all, passion! It is passion, rooted at a level whose source is not visible, that is at the wheelhouse of decisions to pursue excellence in any field and mine just happen to be in the field of art and the liberation of people into the never ending streams of their own divine destiny.
