Adventures in Urban Mysticism (AUM) Vol. 1: Rebirth spans a year in the Life of JMAW, a human+being, as he put the pieces together after losing what mattered most to him. Years before, he had been issued a higher calling by a messenger of the spirit after a near-death experience. Despite this, fear crippled him from embodying love, and as a result, his choices created suffering in his life and those he cared about, time and time again. By searching for a more intuitive, natural, and mystical way of being, JMAW found a deeper connection in spirit. He did this by praying for dreams, following signs, interpreting their symbols, and honoring each with a step in faith. Doing this work allowed him to see the sacred reflection of Aloha ke Akua (God is Love), by finally finding that mirror within himself. JMAW was ultimately guided to spiritual work and has served people from around the world in a variety of roles, including psychic, guide, and teacher. AUM Vol. 1 explores all of this and expands through the range of consciousness from light to dark and the grey in between. This entirely true story even includes a cameo appearance by the devil himself.
