Co-Creator Teacher/Facilitator SoulFullHeart | Writer
Hello, I’m Raphael. Thank you for reading my bio.
My journey began early with a God consciousness, that was conditioned in the Christianity I was raised in, as well as from other lifetimes invested in Christianity. An urgency to serve and ‘make my life count for God’ carried me into adulthood, family life, and missionary endeavor centered around that.
My mid-life crisis showed up in a slowly dawning realization that at heart I no longer resonated with many of the foundational teachings of Christianity, particularly the ones set on a picture of control and the need for a personal saviour, or the threat of hell for non-compliance. I ended up leaving a 23 year marriage, and an entire social world behind, including two near adult daughters - all of whom couldn’t reconcile the journey I was taking and the declarations I was quietly making.
I had lived in the utter persuasion that I, and we, had ‘thee truth’. It was a powerful and all encompassing reality to live and serve others from. Coming to the awareness that I had been living deeply in my filtered reality, I could see how deeply that was a shared reality. It was a reality that got its shape, form, and power by our mutual subscription and loyalty to that picture of life and love. I could also see how given my makeup, that had I been raised in and influenced by a very different persuasion of reality, that I would have embraced that one with great conviction and action. It was in me to search and search deeply.
Before leaving Christianity, a short sentence or two by an author critiquing a popular Christian movement spoke deeply to my awakening heart. The words were these: “Every culture is based upon a certain assumption of the nature of things”. I knew that to be true for my experience. I knew that to be true for everyone around me, even if that culture is a culture formed by two, or just a few. I also knew that my faith community wasn’t ready to make any such admission. We couldn’t admit any such assumption, or any lens that created our reality.
Could we come to admit and even take responsibility that our reality is one we’ve adopted after seeing it and then interpreting it through our own lens? Could we humbly come to the admission that what I most deeply believe in can never be anything more than ‘near as I can tell’?
These waypoints on my awakening journey led at first to a profound vacancy, but it was in that void, that I was able to feel as real a Divine connection that stretched back as far as I could remember and sat deep in my heart. I knew I wanted to be a part of ongoing discovery with a community of like-hearted souls. But I also knew that I couldn’t be a part of claiming ever again to having ‘thee truth’, wherever that persuasion might manifest. My inquiry into other spiritual paradigms is, to this day, very sensitive to anyone coming from that ‘knowing’ energy.
I don’t know what is right for you. I know what I currently believe in and experience with all of my heart. I love being on a cutting-edge of discovery which necessitates ‘not knowing’, as an entry point into more discovery.
I love the persuasions and arising picture that SoulFullHeart offers; the opportunities for growth, healing, discovery, service and especially, community. I love being married and deeply joined in heart to a sometimes hard-to-keep-up-with visionary in Jelelle. I love the growing beloveds expanding my life. I love the anticipation of so much more that is manifesting and wants to keep manifesting in planting a new way of life in collective and personal consciousness. If I could find anything more fun, I’d have the integrity to choose that.
I long to serve and be a part of other soul’s journeys who are awakening into more and more of their heart and soul’s purpose. It really is so rewarding and my funnest fun to see others become more of whom they were meant to be. I get to be enlivened and emboldened to go onwards into my next growth and discoveries.
I offer personal 1:1 session spaceholding for anyone who feels drawn to enter the SoulFullHeart process and journey to see where it might take them.
Please do reach out to me with any questions or desire to undertake a Bridging Session with me.
Sessions have had an immediate, profound impact on my life
“"Raphael certainly does offer powerful spaceholding sessions in which I have been able to meet various elements of myself and work with their incarnations - providing me with such blessings of invaluable insight and direction. My sessions with Raphael had an immediate profound impact on my life and my relationships. I am so grateful for him and all of you serving love at Soulfullheart!" -
- Dave, Canada, SoulFullHeart Facilitant
“"I fully recommend Raphael and SoulFullHeart. Raphael is such a gentle but powerful guide that really opens up a vast space to explore different parts. So far in our sessions we have met the inner protector, teenager and the higher self. The beginning of the collaborative process has begun with these parts. It feels that suppression has moved to a compassionate understanding. Moving into deeper relationships has already helped my relationship with my partner and others. Raphael has been such an invaluable heart centred part."
- James, UK, SoulFullHeart Facilitant

Journal To The Demiurge
"I have been guided to undertake a journaling journey of an ambassadorship to connect with the Demiurge. The Demiurge is the Christian male ‘God’, who is also known as Jehovah or Yahweh in the Bible. Your reading and feeling this journey with me as it unfolds daily will create the vehicle of approach, kind of like signatures on a petition to gain audience with a King. Your participation along with mine, changes the journey, as well as the outcome."
