Welcome to the latest post in the Spirit Warrior Series in which I am featuring Spirit Warriors I know. These are men who have made the transition from very ‘normal’ careers, some quite masculine in their nature, to a more spiritual calling. Many men are making this shift from the physical to the meta-physical, and they have allowed me to share their stories with you, in the hopes it will inspire and uplift you, especially if you are thinking of doing the same thing.
The Spirit Warrior I would like to introduce you to is Robert Tremblay. I have only recently connected with Robert, he is an amazing soul full of light.
MG: Robert, can you tell everyone what it was you used to do?
Spirit Warrior: Prior to my illness and awakening I spent 20 years teaching management practices in the sales and finance industry. I became an accredited national speaker with high energy and a huge ego to deliver motivating ways to lead and succeed. Prior to that I was in the military and then Police work.
MG: What is it you currently do?
MG: What inspired the shift?
Spirit Warrior: On February 27, 2011 I died in a hospital bed in Vermont, after suddenly being diagnosed as terminal. I had a near death experience that changed everything about me at exactly the right time, like many others.
MG: Were there financial implications? What was it like to go from a regular paycheck to being self-employed?
Spirit Warrior: It was the most freeing experience for me to finally see that the thing I had chased all of my life was a block to finding my own riches deep inside my soul.
MG: Did you get support from your friends and family?
Spirit Warrior: During my long ordeal with illness, yes. Although some completely disappeared during that time, they had difficulty dealing with my impending death. After my awakening, many took positions on my new persona and to this day, most still stay further away than they did prior to my NDE.
MG: Have you ever been judged, criticised or ridiculed for your decision to transition from the physical to meta-physical?
Spirit Warrior: Oh yes…although I might question the “decision”” aspect of the question… Although most don’t verbalize the judgement directly to me…their absence and lack of engagement in regards to my true purpose remain clear.
MG: Have you ever considered returning to your old career?
Spirit Warrior: Ironically, I tried three separate times to return…each time I made it 3 months before I found myself sick again.
MG: What gets you through the tough moments?
Spirit Warrior: Keeping busy with new experiences helps me through the tough spots…whether it be physical or emotional in nature.
Spirit Warrior: Everyday since my awakening I rarely miss a sunrise or sunset…this is my meditation. At sunrise when the first light of the day hits my face I just simply say thank you… It is in these moments that I think of everything I am grateful for.
MG: Are you more in tune with your inner self? With your intuition?
Spirit Warrior: I have spent many years resisting my intuition. I don’t anymore… Now I find nearly every answer I need comes at exactly the right time, manner and sequence.
MG: Do you express your feelings and emotions more easily?
Spirit Warrior: Certainly much different now, yes. It flows so freely that I find it would be impossible not to.
MG: What has been the best and worst parts of making this shift?
Spirit Warrior: The worst part was the feeling of being alone at first…not understanding that there are others going through the same thing – it was a great gift to find a community. The best part is the childlike ways I experience nearly every minute. Seeing things like it is the first time and feeling it all.
MG: If you could go back in time and change the past, would you choose to do it all over again?
Spirit Warrior: I would not change anything about the past or what brought me there. It shaped and polished me…finding this love for myself was the very trigger of my healing.
MG: Is there anything else you would like to share?
Spirit Warrior: Finally finding the correlation between positive thinking and healing and seeing it in action was a ‘holy cow’ moment where I found that positive thinking isn’t a sports logo. It is a universal law of nature. The great epiphanies I experience every day on topics I never knew interested me prior, has been liberating. When I realized that being present and mindful of the moment and the gratitude that goes with it was the best discovery I have ever found. In moments like these I connect to a universal stream of energy and knowledge I hadn’t even considered prior. It is in this “place” that all the answers lie. Answers to questions I didn’t even know I had.
MG: Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful insights with me, and with my readers.
Spirit Warrior: It was such a pleasure…thank you for continuing to share your beautiful soul with this world.
