Joseph is the Amazon international bestselling author of the Loving Yourself Wealthy series.
Joseph's life begins twelve days before Christmas. He was known as "the boy who is going to go places," only to see that prophecy forestalled by a series of childhood molestations.
Before becoming a channel for Mary Magdalene, Joseph lived many different lives. He lived through years of depression, romanced suicide, underwent the inhumane therapy of electric shock treatment, suffered the indignity of suppressing his own sexuality, met the real "devil," flirted with jail time, and finally learned to forgive the past, release the future and just show up every day with love and faith.
Through all this he suffered a nervous breakdown, made a million dollars before age 45, went through two bankruptcies, all in preparation for secular blessings and healings from Mother Mary, her son and Mary Magdalene.
Joseph describes these life-changing sacred events in his first volume of Loving Yourself Wealthy: The Power of Allowing.
Loving Yourself Wealthy: The Power of Allowing celebrates the Feminine Spirit in all of us and lays the foundation of Loving Yourself Wealthy™. It is the basis of falling in love and staying in love, knowing that it is in that state of bliss when we are the most creative and productive.
Now, for the first time, discover how loving yourself first allows you to become truly wealthy on all planes---the physical, the emotional, the financial and the spiritual.
Joseph, through his coaching and Light workshops, has been described as "the one who creates transformations and helps people close the gap between where they are and where they're going." He understands that all people dream as kids only to find themselves slapped down by abuse, "failure" and disappointment. Joseph loves seeing people reconnect with their real passion.
Joseph has been known as "sensei" since 1974 after returning to the U.S. from Japan, where he had undergone an extensive one-on-one training with some of the best karate champions in the world. He was the personal guest of, and under the direct tutelage of legendary Grandmaster Teruo Hayashi, founder of Hayashi-ha Shito-ryu Karate.
Joseph is now the Grandmaster and founder of Kenshin-kan Karate and former President and CEO of Life Success Martial Arts, Inc. The "Way" of karate is truth and continued elevation of the Spirit within.
After initial heavy physical training, Joseph became discouraged because he found that very few instructors were teaching the spiritual aspects of karate.
Then Joseph stopped listening to his own heart and pursued a higher education degree to satisfy his father. In the next few years he produced over a million dollars in revenue only to have it end in treating people very badly, a nervous breakdown, and total collapse. But all things come from Source and all of this proved to be a blessing.
This discouragement sent Joseph on his own personal quest, studying with such visionaries as Jack Canfield, Mark Victor Hansen, Esther Hicks (Abraham), Terry Cole Whittaker, James Redfield, Wayne Dyer, Deepak Chopra and T. Harv Ecker.
The year 1993 marked the beginning of Joseph's entering into a series of intense states of awareness.
"In the 1990s many people were writing about the White Light and described it as the ultimate in spiritual experiences. In the summer of 1993 I entered a bubble of White Light for an entire week, unable to consume solid food while in a state of ecstasy. It was as if I was in this bubble that was bouncing around similar to a bubble you would blow from a bubble blower, except this was a bubble of White Light. Not able to pass solid food or store-bought juices through this bubble, I had to take nourishment through a straw at the corner of my mouth---freshly made juices were the only thing I could get through the membrane of the bubble.
"In 1998 I was planning to attempt to re-enter the bubble of White Light. I was not having much success when one Wednesday evening Mother Mary appeared above me and showered me with White and Gold beams of light. At the time I didn't know that she was actually preparing me for what was to come. Two days later, attempting to enter the White Light I actually travelled to areas of rarefied light that I now refer to as "The Light Regions." I was made me aware that the White Light was really insignificant compared to these Light Regions. (We really have no syntax available with which to describe or even comprehend it. I remained in The Light Regions for six months---all the while in a state of "rapture," where all duality seemed not to exist. I was in an all conscious, illuminated state of infinite bliss where time ceased to exist. This lasted for an entire 6 months, at which time I was knocked out of these Light Regions by a traumatic event.
"Following these experiences the current accepted sense of reality of the world I had been raised to believe seemed illusionary and highly suspect. The person I had been prior to 1993 had now been replaced by someone who saw order to our seemingly chaotic world. My awareness had been illuminated by the clarity of what was the end of duality for me."
In 2003 Joseph was again blessed by Mother Mary and healed of his childhood molestations by Mary Magdalene, which has led to an intimate relationship with Mary Magdalene, whom Joseph now refers to as "Maggie." Maggie has advised Joseph to publish her Love Notes For Your Soul under the single name of Joseph. All these encounters have been purely secular.
Joseph is dedicated to helping creative women visionaries who are ready and willing to make subtle shifts into higher vibrations of being and begin living their Dream Lives by Allowing Lust, Angels, Romance, Miracles and Money (ALARMM™) into their lives while walking confidently in the direction of their dreams. Women who are hungry to find and add significance and meaning to their lives by loving themselves wealthy on all material and spiritual planes.
Behind Love Notes For Your Soul and Loving Yourself Wealthy
If there ever was proof of miracles, the following story says it all.
"My very personal secular relationship with Mary Magdalene began back in 2003. Following a blessing from Mother Mary, I had decided to attend a breathing workshop at one of the California missions. I was going there to hopefully meet up with Mary again. Not only did I meet up with Mary, but who was with her? Yes, Mary Magdalene.
"It was during this rendezvous that Mother Mary cradled me in her arms while Mary Magdalene healed me of my multiple childhood molestations. Since this blessing Mary Magdalene and I have developed a very close relationship to the point that I call her Maggie and she calls me Joseph. In fact, it was her advice to use just the one name of Joseph when publishing her Love Notes.
"In December of 2012 Maggie began transmitting her Love Notes through me on a very regular basis.
"It's almost a daily routine now. Thanks to Dr. Wayne Dyer, I was introduced to the great Persian poet Rumi who once wrote that, "the morning breeze has secrets to tell you, do not go back to sleep." And that is what happens most mornings. I am stirred awake around 2am and often times I think there is nothing. But I heed Rumi's words and go to my office, sit down with pen in hand, with my hand resting on a yellow pad of writing paper. Then time evaporates and an hour or two later I am amazed that 15-25 Love Notes have come through me. I will go back and read them and just scratch my head in amazement.
"I once took a pilgrimage to Concord, MA to visit Henry David Thoreau's home and Walden Pond and I have always kept dear to me his words about just walking confidently in the direction of your dreams...in essence, he says that once you do, miracles begin showing up.
"Once I took the initial "scary" step in publishing Love Notes For Your Soul, the miracles have really began appearing quite regularly.
"If you're an entrepreneur, you know that you are constantly questioning yourself on your decisions. So I am always looking for signs telling me I'm on the right path. These signs "light up my runway," and I feel as if a river is running through me.
"The first sign or miracle was the fact that the Notes just kept coming through me effortlessly and gave, and continue to give me, a deep sense of joy and faith.
"The second sign or miracle came in August of 2013 when I sent a sampling of the Notes and a brief introduction to a complete stranger living in Thailand at the time. She read them and then contacted me. Her name is Angelina.
'Joseph, I have to tell you something. I love your Love Notes. But I want to tell you this. People know me as Angelina, but growing up people called me by my middle name, Magdalena---and my friends called me Maggie!'
"I thought, 'Oh my God! She must be an angel sent by Maggie.' Then I looked at her name again and realized it is Angel ina!
"I asked if I could call her Maggie. She said 'Yes!'"
"Well, needless to say we became fast friends, and as our friendship grew she confided more in me.
'Joseph, people today call me Angelina, but that is the name my father wanted to name me. My mother wanted to name me Maria and it's Maria that is on my birth certificate.' She proved it to me with documentation.
"So, this Angelina is really Mary Magdalene, Maggie's namesake!
"Then the next Love Note that came through me from Mary Magdalene was this one:
Ah, Joseph, when things like this happen it is magical and fun,
Angelina to Magdalena to Maggie---who would've thought---and from across the sea,
and we even look alike, so run
my dear, and jump and sing that when you look at her you are seeing me.
"Does it get any better than this? I don't think so!"
Joseph is also the Founder and Grandmaster of Kenshin-kan Martial Arts. In the photo to the right you will notice that it appears that Joseph is wearing a white belt (Beginner's Belt). In Joseph's style of Kenshin-kan Karate, it is customary for black belts to continue wearing their original 1st degree black belts (there are 10 degrees total). By doing so, the original, beautiful black belt becomes tattered and worn to the extent that, as a symbol of continued training and hard work, the black belt takes on the appearance of a white belt, reminding the wearer and those who train with him or her to always keep a Beginner's Mind, both in the seeking of knowledge and in humility.
