I Am Carl John. A transformational artist, a soul healer, a sound shaman, and a spiritual counselor. My mission in life is to connect deeper, guide others to transform into their highest version of themselves. I share both shadow and light and only what I have experienced and has worked for me.
My path started like many self made stories. A series of business attempts and then success. I sat on the boards that helped create the Las Vegas Arts District. I sat as the Social Chair for Southern Nevada for Entrepreneur Organization Global. Type A was my type and the right side of the rope is where I sat. When the world came crashing down, as it often does, I made a conscious decision to walk down a road less traveled. That path provided years of spiritual lessons, embodied through my own journey, I began to cultivate gifts to ultimately begin to heal myself and then begin to share those teachings with others. You can read about some of this on my testimonials page.
During the course of my own transformational journey, I went from being a real estate financier and restauranteur to becoming a singer and a songwriter winning a Hollywood Music in Media Award for Best Folk Acoustic Artist and nominated for Best In A Series for my song, Dark Side Of The Soul. This song was a special collaboration with Grammy award-winning sound shaman Robert Mirabal. Dubbed Native Americana and first spun on BMIR radio during Burning Man exodus, this was one of the first such collaborations of shamanic healing and Americana music.
Finally, I put pencil to paper to wrap my story, my lessons and the teachings in a memoir titled, The Journey hOMe. I invite you to listen to the audiobook.
Through all aspects of my artistic and transformational journey I hope to inspire others to shine. Maybe together we can bring in a new light for this time.
My Story, A Story
After creating a life of business success and luxury then losing it all, I found myself in the same place most people might: lost and soul sick. I began to deepen my study of quantum physics, shadow work and energy healing. These explorations helped me heal my soul and uncover my true path. My initial path led me towards music and writing, into which I incorporated these meaningful life observations.
I applied ancient truths that I discovered as I watched the miraculous unfold in my life. Having never played music before, in a matter of only 3 months, I went from 3 chords on a guitar to sharing a stage with Robin Thicke. I won a Hollywood Music in Media Award for Best Folk Acoustic artist and was even nominated for Best In A Series (which was won by The Walking Dead) for a song that I wrote about the shadow work titled, Dark Side Of The Soul. Dark Side Of The Soul was a collaboration with Robert Mirabal, a Grammy award winning sound shaman from Taos Pueblo. This was one in a series of events leading me deeper into the healing path and the quantum field (the field of existence).
I ultimately became a teacher and practitioner in energy healing modalities, a path that I would have never imagined for myself. I've used this gift to help others transform their own lives and step into a new way of living. My wish is that my words, music, one-on-one sessions serve as a transformational experience. In my audiobook, The Journey hOMe, described as, “a roadmap to enlightenment and freedom to heal yourself, as well as the world” I share intimate experiences of a transformational healing journey to assist the reader in their own journey. After experiencing my own inner reconciliation and healing gifts, I felt called to share my journey with others in the hopes of helping them to heal themselves. I truly feel that this is my ultimate reason for being here.
I hope to share in your journey along the way…
Highest & Best,
