Healing from MS
In the spring of 2001, at the age of nineteen, Miguel was diagnosed with Cerebellar Relapsing-Remitting Multiple Sclerosis (RRMS). After being told he had developed Multiple Sclerosis (MS), Miguel began his search to find the cause and cure of his illness. Multiple doctor visits and tests ensued, but little could be done to bring Miguel’s body back to wellness.
After one-and-a-half years of having lost function in half of his body, Miguel employed a Neuroplasticity technique to receive one of his greatest gifts: the secret to his healing. Little did he know that receiving the cure was only the start of a journey to find his greatest gift, the gift of finding his true self.
With his passion for science and discovery, Miguel has developed a unique learning and teaching style focused on the principals of hope, positivism, and logical reasoning. His love for the Hispanic Culture and his proficiency in Spanish have allowed him to reach far beyond the borders of his native US. Miguel’s miraculous healing story and life lessons have touched the hearts of thousands around the world. All of this combined with his love of space exploration, Miguel can now say that his reach stretches beyond the stars, making his message truly “A Gift from The Universe”.
Finding the Gift
At the age of twenty, Miguel began seeking answers that would help him understand the origin and cause of healing his life-changing diagnosis. Not finding the answers he pursued, Miguel turned to natural medicine for teachings that could help him understand how he achieved an instantaneous remission from MS.
Miguel found answers he searched for in some of the most ancient traditions known to man. He devoted much of his spare time to studying the Ayurvedic Medicine philosophy as well as the teachings of Kashmiri Shaivism from India.
Sixteen years into his monastic path of initiation under various esoteric lineages, today Miguel is able to transmit teachings rarely found in the West focusing on inducing experiential encounters to his disciples and students.
