Spiritual journeys are a strange thing.
Hello and Love and Light to you all.
My name is Gerard Hibbert. I was born into this particular physical existence in the year 1969.
The town of Ware in Hertfordshire England is a bustling market town with a very rich history dating back over 1000 years. Back in ye olde days it was the major halfway stop for stagecoaches between London and Cambridge which meant there were an excessive amount of pubs, you know, that classic British cultural mainstay.
My parents were of African and Prussian decent so as a result I was a boy of colour in a 99.9 % white town.
This I have to say had its challenges, especially towards the late 70s and into the 80s when we saw the rise of the right-wing skin head movements, namely the National Front and the Right-Wing British movement.
This combined with a certain degree of coddling from an over protective Mother (Love you Mum) and not seeing a particularly loving marriage between my two parents but more of a marriage of convenience (Love you Mum and Dad) led to my fair share of messed up head stuff.
Don’t get me wrong, I had a laugh growing up into my teens but eventually ended up spending numerous hours in afore mentioned pubs, smoking copious amount of Hash, and dabbling with other substances as well.
However, as a result of my previous experiences I had developed an understanding and compassion for the “underdog”.
Spiritual Journeys are a strange thing.
I had visited Canada twice in my life, once in 1984 and again in 1991. My Brother and Sister had moved here in the 70s.
In the spring of 1993, I was sitting in the Bell pub, one of the a fore mentioned pubs in Ware when I had this sudden urge to pull out a coin…
Heads I go to Canada, Tails I stay (You HAVE to follow these impulses!).
Next thing I know I was down the Tottenham Court Road booking a flight on Air India, I was handing in my notice at work, I was pulling out my savings, and I was saying goodbye.
Within a week I was on the plane.
Hit Canada, found a girl, got Married, fathered two beautiful kids, still very much messed up and angry - got divorced after 14 years.
Canada hadn’t solved my problems; I was just running away, the issues in the mind still remained.
BUT - Spiritual journeys are a strange thing…
Before the divorce I hit rock bottom. Working shifts began to amplify these deep-seated emotions.
Depression finally reared its head, I wanted to die. I thought, “What if I drive into that truck?”
Clearly, I was screaming out for something. Help, help, help! The Universe is not out to get you. It’s our thoughts that fuck us up!
Around the time of the divorce came the financial meltdown.
Universe had delivered to me - got laid off for three months, had money in bank from house buyout / refinance.
This offered me the opportunity to do some long overdue deep spiritual work.
I researched the ego and had major breakthroughs in my life.
This turned my life, and even though there was still much discovery and challenges ahead I was most certainly on the ascendancy.
Several years passed. Met a new girl and eventually explored the world of Metaphysics.
This combined with my compassion for the underdog led me to my unique soul purpose.
What else could it be for me? I had to become a Spiritual life coach.
This book is written with love, it speaks of my journey and delves into the Spiritual and a little of the Scientific aspects of this wondrous Universe that we exist in.
My hope is that you enjoy reading the book as much as I enjoyed writing it.
It is important for every single one of us to understand how crucial it is to align with the Universal Consciousness that surrounds us and that we are a part of.
It is important for every single one of us to truly understand how incredibly powerful we are!
And it is so very important to understand that the Universe is not out to get you. It’s our thoughts that fuck us up.
Love & Light,
Gerard Hibbert Life Coaching
