Saul grew up in an inner-city ghetto in Brooklyn, New York. Certain events helped mold his personality and future actions. He became a chiropractor, but got involved with metaphysics after reading the Edgar Cayce biography “There Is a River” by Thomas Sugrue. He started recording his dreams when he read that Cayce said dreams could be a pathway to your higher self. When the gift of healing unfolded in 1980 from dreams, he basically kept it a secret until 1993. This is some background about his decision to go from full time chiropractor to full time speaker and spiritual healer and about all of us letting our light shine for the truly unique soul we really are.

Our celebration of written and spoken language often comes at the expense of a deep and powerful experience of listening to our soul’s calling, which is “beyond words.” Yet the inner languages of our dreams, our bodies, our deepest yearnings, our intuition, and the vibrant outer languages of story and poetry and nature can transform our words and our world. How do we cultivate these languages, and how do they support our trusting and expressing our deepest truths and most extravagant gifts? When we heed what they have to say, we are initiated into rich and reliable sources of wonder and authenticity that “loosen our roots in false soil” and guide us to new realms of expression.
