Something got you down? Feeling frustrated, lost, or alone?
I help you get your zen back.
If you are anxious or depressed, reaching for the bottle more often than you know you should, sabotaging your best efforts at the worst possible moments, all while trying to make sense of this whole "human experience," you're in the right place.
I know that list might seem a little broad sweeping, but all of those conditions have something very important in common. We'll get to that shortly, I promise.
My list of private clients has included owners of multi-million dollar businesses, top executives in well-known corporations, performing artists at the very top of their game, small business owners, and coaches.
But you don't have to fit neatly into one of those categories in order to work with me.
Your Guide to an Enlightened Life...
Enlightened Health, Enlightened Mind, Enlightened Spirit, Enlightened Relationships, Enlightened Business.
It all starts with YOU.
What Sort of People Do I Work with?
I've worked with people from all sorts of backgrounds, at all different stages of their lives, with goals and aspirations as diverse as you can imagine.
Many were stuck in cycles of anxiety and depression unable to break free on their own.
Others were trading one addiction for another trying to quiet the voices, numb the pain & disappointment, and find a moment of peace inside themselves.
Lots of them were doing just fine, but hadn't broken through to the level of success they knew they could achieve. Somehow they kept getting in their own way, and just couldn't seem to get ahead.
And for a surprising number of people, life was going pretty well. They had already achieved some of their biggest goals, but somehow they still weren't happy. They kept asking themselves, "Is this it?" and coming up with zilch.
What did all of these people have in common? A few things, actually...
First, they knew that the answer was somehow locked inside themselves, but they just couldn't find the key. They were willing to take a long look deep inside, and sort through the mess in order to solve the things that were ailing them. If you are looking for someone to fix you, or prescribe a pill, or have a pity party with your while you blame your problems on the world, I'm not your guy.
Secondly, they were willing to look outside conventional solutions. Often because they had been there, done that, and kept coming up short. If you want the "same-old" plain vanilla personal development double-speak, we're not going to have a lot of fun working together. Many of my methods will fly in the face of conventional "Wisdom" and may feel very uncomfortable.
Third, they were willing to take a leap of faith. I do my very best to explain what it is that I do, but there always seems to be gaps between understanding it mentally, and experiencing it for your yourself. I'm certainly open to your questions, but if you are not the sort of person to step out of your own comfort zone and what everyone else is doing, this may not be the place for you. I'm The Mystic. My realm is the unknown.
Lastly, they were willing to bet on themselves. This inspires me beyond words. They were willing to invest their time, effort, energy, and money into themselves to get the skills and tools they needed. They were also willing to take ownership for their own choices, actions, and results. If you're wanting to make some changes in your life, but you're already looking for an excuse, or an out, One-on-One mentorship probably isn't the best place for you to start.
I have some other products and services to get you started. I'd recommend you start there.
"I worked with Nick for over a year and it was one of the most enlightening experiences of my life.
My anxiety has completely gone away and my income doubled in that year. He was there for me every step of the way through some huge life challenges."

Enlightened Living is...
Enlightened living is not a destination. It's a path; a code of living. It is a decision to wake up to a higher level of Truth about who we are, and to live that Truth through our lives. And most importantly, to never stop learning and growing.
Enlightened Living is anchored in 6 key areas of your life. When they are all working, life is great. However, it only takes one to send things spinning, and before you know it, everything is falling apart.
If you’ve ever had a health scare, or heck, if you’ve even just gotten really sick, you know how quickly a health challenge can turn your life upside down. Beyond that, if you want a real sense of fulfillment in your life, and to pursue your highest dreams and goals, you’re going to need a lot of energy.
Is your health fantastic, or are you just getting by?
Do you have the energy you need to pursue your highest goals, or do you get exhausted and put them on the back burner?
How vulnerable are you to a health challenges? If something starts to goes wrong, do you know how to fix it without calling in a team of specialists?
Intense pain gone in one session.
"About 5 years ago, pain started in my hip. It was pretty intense. Noticeable all day with any activity. Probably an 8 on a scale from 1-10.
6 months later...I haven't had any hip pain since our session! Thank you for your gift! ❤"
Clarity is often underrated, and many people are clear about all the wrong things. They're clear about what they DON'T want in their life, but when it comes down to what they DO want, somehow things get a lot more fuzzy and you start hearing things like, "I just want to be happier."
Clarity is distorted in two main ways...
- Noise and interference from the world telling you who you should be, and what you should have, and how you should go about it.
- Your Internal beliefs, patterns and programs that either buy into the stories, or fight against them. Either way, it's a fast track to mental fatigue.
Make no mistake- the person who is most clear wins every time. They also feel more happy, confident and connected in the process.
How easily do you get distracted, or sucked into drama?
Do you know which of your beliefs that are keeping you at your current level of success?
"I got on a call with Nick when I was at the bottom in my life with no hope. From the first call I knew that he had an answer to my problem.
Working with Nick has been the most important and wise decision of my life so far. Together we got me up and running into life again with clarity and ease. Nick's astute observations of the decisions, attitudes, and beliefs that I simply couldn't see, were at the heart of my dysfunction.
experienced a true miracle and he assisted in making it happen. My life is completely improved and I have so much gratitude to you Nick for guiding me through.

Nothing can ruin your day or sabotage your success & happiness quite like emotional upheaval.
Anger, frustration, resentment, self-doubt and fear can take all of the great things you’ve accomplished and dump all over them in a flash.
Marriages, business partnerships, and relationships with children can all be destroyed in an instant, or suffer the slow decay of resentment when emotions become toxic.
Some people stuff their emotions and call it "Strength," only to blow up later. Others let their emotions run the show and wind up on a roller coaster that never ends.
There is a better way.
How do you handle criticism and disappointment?
How stable are you inside when the world around you suddenly starts to freak out?
"Nick helped me to heal my lyme disease and taught me how to work with energy because I was very sensitive and constantly spinning out.
My chronic fatigue was gone after his 2-day training. It was a healing miracle. My life has gotten so much easier, I almost didn't know what to do with myself."
Since class, I've started my own business, moved to the beach, which was a lifelong dream, and I feel empowered to handle anything that comes my way."
We all need relationships and human connection to feel fulfilled. It's hardwired into us.
Even if you pride yourself on your self-sufficiency and not needing help, sooner or later you will wake up and wonder what it was all for.
Having passion in your intimate relationships. Being respected by your peers. Leading with confidence, rather than being a tyrant or getting walked all over. All necessary pieces of a productive and fulfilling life.
Have you ever considered that every experience in your life is based on your relationship to someone or something else?
I don't think I've ever worked with a client where relationships haven't come into the picture, and the more we cleaned them up, the better life got. Like magic.
How are your relationships?
Do you get angry easily? Do people stress you out?
Do you let others walk all over you?
I was experiencing a lot of turbulence. Being a new step-dad and taking on more of a leadership role at my place of work was really challenging to me. I knew that I needed to get control of my self-judgment and anger, which seemed to be simmering under the surface, and would manifest at the most inconvenient times.
Through my work with Nick, I’ve been able to relate to people on an entirely different level. He's helped me to get my own junk out of the way so I can really focus on others.
My loved ones have noticed that I have a lot more patience, and I'm able to be more present and engage with them on a whole new level.

Money flows through every area of life. No Health is complete if your money is a mess.
More than 85% of people report having worry around finances, and what's most interesting about that number is that it transcends income levels.
This shows that there is much more to the story. Even if you have a great income or business, if your relationship with money isn’t healthy, you will feel like you never had enough, and you'll be on an exhausting chase for "More."
Most people treat money and spirituality as very separate things, and inadvertently fragment two very important areas of life- hobbling both in the process.
If other areas of your life aren't working, money is used to buy things you don’t need to fill a void you can’t describe.
Do you have the success and income you want?
Are you happy with what you have?
How healthy is your relationship with money?
"Nick is doing extremely powerful work. He rooted out highly toxic core-beliefs that were deeply buried in my subconscious and dissolved them. Poof. It was like years of therapy condensed into a one-hour distance session.
After 3 sessions, it felt as if a reset button was hit...like my system had been restored and wiped clean of a lifetime of negative programming. This has produced a tangible ripple effect throughout all facets of my life, most notably in my close relationships, and most importantly, in my role as a mother to my young children.
As someone who has worked closely with numerous alternative and traditional healing practitioners, I can confidently say that what Nick is doing is both highly specialized and highly effective."
You didn’t make your way to The Mystic Next Door if you don’t believe there is something greater than you.
Spiritual connection is the shortcut to incredible happiness, confidence, and satisfaction. It's also the gateway to your deepest desires and life purpose; The quiet nudging that has been saying, “There is something more for you.”
Sure, you can go on an Ayahuasca journey, drop some LSD, or do a bunch of mushrooms, and that will probably give you some useful insights- or not- but eventually you’re going to be going back into your life here on Earth. Then what?
What do you do with that download of information? Meditate more? Try to be nicer? Sell your business? Quit your job? Leave your wife and family? Then what?
If you really want the goods, it’s going to take more than a week of substances and processes to gain spiritual mastery in your life.
Life is short. By now, you know just how quickly a decade can pass by.
How connected do you feel to a higher power?
If you died today, would you be happy with how you spent your life?
"My work with Nick helped me resolve a core issue that had been affecting every area of my life! Since working with Nick, I’ve found a happiness in myself I didn’t even know was possible!!!
I’m so grateful there aren’t enough words to express it!"

A quick exercise in self-assessment...
Pull out a piece of paper and pen. Then, quickly go back through those 6 key areas of your life, and rate them on a scale of 0-10. (0=completely dissatisfied, 10=complete satisfied)
Which is the area that needs the most attention?
Do you deserve to be happy?
Now that you know where you stand in each area, let's look one layer deeper. Go back through each area, and write down your level of worthiness for each area. In other words, how much (or little) do you deserve to have what you REALLY want in that area of your life? (0=not worthy at all, 10=completely worthy)
Do you notice a correlation?
Your life will be a reflection of your worthiness. If you don’t feel worthy or deserving of love in your life, you’ll find a way to sabotage it. It doesn’t matter how much love and admiration others heap on you, if you don’t feel worthy, you won’t allow it in. You’ll find a way to deflect it, and ultimately remain unfulfilled.
Same goes for money, happiness, fulfillment, etc.
Do you deserve to be happy and have what you want? EXACTLY what you want, or a cheap knock-off?
You get to decide, but if it were that simple, everyone would do it. I'll help you.
5 Steps of Enlightened Living for Ultimate Health, Happiness and Success.
These 5 steps are presented in logical order, but that doesn’t mean this is the exact path you’ll follow. It only means that you must address each in order to unlock higher levels of happiness, fulfillment, and success in your life. New levels, new devils, right?
It’s a continuous journey.
Step #1: Self-Love and Appreciation
The funny thing about high achievers is that they rarely self-identify as high achievers. They are keenly attuned to their shortcomings and wage a war with themselves to overcome these flaws through discipline. The idea of loving yourself might even seem ridiculous because if you were to do that, you’d likely fall prey to your weakness and base desires. Self-criticism and punishment is how you keep yourself on the straight and narrow. (When you do allow yourself some indulgences, it’s usually for things that destroy your health. Alcohol- it’s been a day and you deserve to have a drink.)
Have you ever wondered how successful you could be if you weren’t constantly trying to fix yourself or punishing yourself? What, exactly were you designed for? That unique Soul essence.
What if you could see your perfection as you were originally designed, before the world convinced you of who you SHOULD be, or before trauma stole your innocence.
I don’t assume that you’re broken and need fixing. This is one of the many fundamental differences between me and other coaches and mentors. I know that you’re already perfect, and I will teach you how to see that, and use it to your advantage in life. Not just for yourself, but for others as well.
We start with a deep and rich assessment of YOU. It is a 15-minute online quiz that will reveal your innate perfection, as well as where you’re getting in your own way, spinning your wheels, or heading in the opposite direction of what you were put here to do.
Knowing yourself is step #1. It’s basically the “You are here” label on the map.
Step #2: Physical Health and Vitality
No one is happy when they’re sick or exhausted. It sucks to have to drag yourself out of bed. And for you to get the very most out of your life, you’re going to need access to consistent energy to support and active and vibrant life.
If you talk to a doctor, they’ll have you believe that you’re just a bunch of bits and pieces, and when it comes to health, they are there to put you back together when something goes wrong, as best as they can, and only after considerable time and expense.
As you get older, your reliance on doctors and specialists will naturally become more and more crucial as your health deteriorates, until the day comes that the whole thing just falls apart; beyond repair. And that’s that.
F*ck that. No thank you.
There’s a lot more to perfect health than bits and pieces. Your body is an intricate machine that goes far beyond the bits and pieces, and even doctors can’t tell you how, precisely, healing and recovery work. Neither can I, by the way. But that doesn’t mean that you can’t turn those systems on, and unlock the latent energy and vitality in your system.
And you don’t need a ton of drugs (prescription or otherwise), supplements, gadgets, or devices to create and maintain perfect health.
If you’re struggling to maintain your health, and keep getting knocked down by illness and disease, I will teach you how to recover your health.
If you’re already feeling great, I’ll show you how to tap into a new level of health and vitality to ensure that nothing will knock you out of the game.
Step #3: Re-patterning Beliefs and Trauma Release
Remember above where we talked about worthiness? Did you start to wonder WHY you might not feel worthy of what you really want? I hope so. Because holding your worthiness levels in place is your belief structure. Your belief structure is the filter through which you see yourself, and determines your choices and actions.
Your belief structure was given to you by the world. It was taught through parents, family, and culture. If you’ve experienced trauma in your life, your belief structure was adopted for survival. How deep do you want to go?
If you took away all of your beliefs, what would you be left with?
That’s not our goal, by they way. Our goal is to help you get what you want out of life.
One of my superpowers is identifying the beliefs that are preventing you from getting what you want, and solving them.
If you’ve been doing work on yourself, you’ve probably identified some of these beliefs. You may even think that you’ve dealt with it, so it’s all good. Inevitably, we will find new layers- conflicts between your conscious and sub-conscious minds. This has happened with every client I’ve worked with who has “done the work.” And on the other side of it is always a fresh perspective that changes the game.
Embedded traumas that have you playing out the same patterns in your life, receiving the same level of happiness and fulfillment.
Step #4: Perfect Action
You’re probably busy. In a world moving at this pace, it’s easy to slip into auto-pilot. Life loses it’s luster. Work is no longer fulfilling, and things start to dull. In odd moments, the longing of your heart starts to speak, but it’s muffled. Unclear.
Most people do the exact wrong thing to change this. They make big sweeping changes to "Light a fire." Quit the job. Sell the business. Leave the spouse. And it works for a while. Until it doesn’t.
The first step isn’t necessarily to change what you’re doing, but how you’re doing it. If you have a job, and you’re hating all over it, that energy is exactly what is going to manifest in your life. You’ll lose the job, and blame them. Or you’ll get another job that treats you even worse. This is not my law, it’s the law of life.
So many times, people have been on the brink of ending marriages because the love just isn’t there anymore. Maybe someone cheated, and the other just can’t get over it. Or one of person is going through a difficult time, struggling with depression or addiction, and the other person is taking the brunt of it.
Yet time and time again, when they changed how they interacted in the relationship, decades old problems started to dissolve, and in their place was newfound intimacy, connection, and curiosity.
This is not as simple as just looking on the bright side. It is the masterful governance of your own thoughts and emotions. I’ll teach you how to meet every person and moment fresh and new and how to bring your very best to everything that comes your way. You will no longer get crushed by circumstance. You will meet blessings and obstacles with the command of a Jedi Master.
Step #5: Enlightened Living
This is the difference between good and great. Maybe you’ve built a good life, and you’re feeling like you should just be satisfied with what you have. Yet that nudge keeps coming back; that feeling that there is "something more." A higher level of contribution, or a greater sense of fulfillment. Something…more…
You might even feel guilty for wanting more since you’re really quite fortunate compared to others. What you might not realize is how much that guilt is controlling and limiting your life. You might not even realize you have any of that because you’ve “dealt with it” in the past.
This is the place where most people settle into complacency. Everything is good enough, and there is no urgency to make a change. This is also where a decade slips by before you know what happened.
Frustration and dissatisfaction become constant companions, like a low-grade fever that you keep thinking will eventually go away.
This isn’t an end of life conversation. It can happen at any age, though if you trace it back, the mid 30’s is often where it starts. It’s like a detour that you thought would just be for a minute, but somehow you decided to stay- trading your deepest dreams and desires for comfort. The fire dies down to a barely smoldering ember, and your mind becomes fertile ground for depression.
This leg of the journey isn’t for the feint of heart. It is the part that requires the highest level of skill and objectivity. To really look at this, you have to have cleaned up your life to a degree and be willing to let go of what you THINK you know in order to receive what is truly yours by birthright.
If that all sounds a little cryptic and vague, it’s only because this knowledge only exists on a deep and subtle layer inside you.
If you know, you know. If you don’t, it just means that there are other things to clean up first. I guarantee that it will reveal itself. As the saying goes, “Three things cannot long be hidden; The sun, the moon, and the Truth.”
This is the Truth of you.
“In one simple conversation, Nick was able to see some pieces of the puzzle that I wasn't aware of and gave me a few things to add to my daily routine to clean up some of the stuff that was weighing me down.
Literally within 2 hours I experienced HUGE shifts where some really big opportunities came into my space in a way that BLEW MY MIND. ”
“Working with Nick helped me resolve a core issue that had been affecting every area of my life! Since working with Nick, I’ve found a happiness in myself I didn’t even know was possible!!! ”
Executive Consultant, Coach & Author
“I've had a huge change for the better in my communication with my boss and staff. I have less moments of my emotions getting out of control. Also I am making better money with my healing, dance instruction, and consulting sessions. I finally feel grounded in purpose.
I am really grateful for Nick's healing and guidance. My family has noticed how much more understanding and grounded I have grown.”
How Does it Work?
If you did the assessment above, then you already know the area that needs the most attention right now. That's where we'll start.
Imagine what it would be like to have that area exactly as you’d like. To accelerate the process and have the confidence to be sure that in changing that one area of your life, you’re not setting yourself up for a big crash in another area.
So many times, I’ve seen people hit their career goals only to be struck down by a health crisis. Or they’ve finally decided to pursue their dreams only to watch their relationship crumble.
That’s not how we do things here. You actually CAN have it all. I will walk you through the process and tailor it to your unique needs in order to accomplish your goals as efficiently as possible.
I work in 3-month agreements to get started. You will make tangible, measurable progress toward your goals in those 3 months, and after that, we can decide together if we’ll continue the journey.

Fill Out the Form to Get the Conversation About Your Enlightened Life Started Today...
Sounds great! How much does it cost to work with you One-on-One?
I'm not cheap, but I'm a great value. 3-month one-on-one programs start at $6,000. I do payment plans under certain circumstances.
Do you do sampler sessions so I can see if I like it?
Not so much. You may have noticed that you actually can't buy anything on this page. We're definitely going to have a conversation before we work together. Remember, I'm also making an investment in you, and we're going to be working together closely, so I want to get to know you too.
After you fill out the form, we'll talk. I promise that we'll get to the heart of what's going on with you and if it's a fit to work together, great. If not, no worries. Good luck and Godspeed.
Do I need to subscribe to any particular belief system?
Um, no. I'm not down with telling people what to believe. You'll need a belief that something can change for the better in your life, and the willingness to do the work necessary for that change. I'm guessing you already have those two things if you made it this far.
What does a typical session look like?
Most of my appointments are done via phone. I'll ask you some questions. I'll probably have you be quiet and breathe for a few minutes while I do some of the mystical sort of things that I do. Then I'll walk you through a process to unwind whatever emotion, belief or pattern is holding you back or twisting you up. It works every time.
Do you see people in person as well?
Absolutely. I have an office in Carlsbad, as well as San Clemente, CA. We can arrange to meet in person if you prefer.
Are you really able to produce results over the phone?
Nearly all of the client testimonials you see on my site are a result of phone sessions- yes, even the ones that had to do with physical healing. I prefer this method because we are able to focus, and get down to business without unnecessary technology or distractions. I will guide you every step of the way.
Is this like therapy?
No. We're not going to be dissecting your past childhood stuff and reliving past disappointments and traumas. Not that past experiences don't come up through the work. I have a very different methodology form handling those things that not only provide greater awareness of how those experiences have shaped your world, but to actually release them from your DNA.
One of the most common experiences people share is, "I accomplished more in a few sessions than I did in years of therapy."
Can you tell me a little more about the Energy work that you do?
Sure. The reason I choose to work with energy techniques, rather than traditional coaching or counseling, is because it works more efficiently.
At the root of every problem or challenge is an energetic solution. Once the energy is cleaned up, your body and brain will restore to their natural state of health, happiness, connection, and purpose. You cannot solve deeper patterns and beliefs without resolving the energy that created them.
The Energy Mastery® System is by far the most advanced and comprehensive methods available, and I am more highly trained than just about anyone in the world. And I continue to practice and study constantly to refine my skills to help you faster and more efficiently.
Where do your live classes take place?
I teach at the Center for Energy Mastery® in San Clemente, CA. It's beautiful here, and worth the trip to learn in an environment that is specifically designed for this exact purpose, rather than a hotel conference room.
