About the book

Life on Earth takes the form of a journal in which Mike asks what’s on his mind during pivotal times in his life.

  • Aliens, ETs, and UFOs
  • Déjà vu, reincarnation, karma, and spiritual contracts
  • How to know the truth when there are over 4,000 religions
  • Who the prophets were, angels, and the power of prayer
  • Contextualizing abuse, violations, and disasters
  • Filling your role, purpose, and niche in this lifetime
  • What's important, what matters (you may be surprised)
  • 21 steps for opening the floodgates of abundance
  • Living deliberately, creating consciously (of course)
  • Finding happiness when others you love are not
  • What lies beyond life on earth and who comes back
  • Ancient civilizations, secret societies, and what happened to both
  • The ultimate reason for life on earth, and elsewhere (it’s shockingly simple)
  • And much, much, much more!

Praise for Life on Earth:


Jambo Fellow Adventurer!

I’ve lived my life through questions. Asking about almost everything—aliens, UFOs, yetis, ghosts, the pyramids, time travel, God, hypnosis, and mind-power—but mostly questions like What the hell are we doing here? And then everyone dies? Gone forever? Why bother? What’s the point?

And my questions . . . get answered. Wisely. Really wisely. Used to scare me. In the beginning, I didn’t know how they were answered, when, or by whom. Years later, well into the phenomenon, it dawned on me to ask that question too. And, yeah, I was answered. To this day, my “knowingness” usually arrives invisibly, unannounced, somewhere in the span of weeks or months after I first pose the question; when necessary, I can expect and get an answer while I wait, same day. Some folks see dead people, others go out-of-body, and I . . . I get answers. Admittedly this “gift” might not sound as impressive as meeting Beethoven, hypothetically, or soaring through time and space like Jonathan Livingston Seagull, but at my age, already having had the chance to ask pretty much all of my most profound and piercing questions, I can tell you, it’s damn cool. I’d even choose it over meeting Beethoven and time travel. For example, I ask, “What the hell are we here for?” And I get the answer:

You are eternal, spiritual beings, on earth by choice, at an early ebb in the spiritual evolution of your kind. You chose to be who you now are, possessing the dreams you now have and the challenges you presently face, for the reasons of learning and joy. Among the things you wanted to understand: love is a given, not an option; your thoughts hold the key to living the life of your wildest dreams; and no matter how things appear, your eternal salvation is ensured….

These are unusual times we’re living through, yet still ripe in opportunity and overflowing with rich possibilities for the “best of your life.” Are you ready to understand who you are? How you got here? And what you can truly do with your life on earth? If so, please join me on this journey into truth as I probe the mysteries and magic of our reality, from past civilizations to modern times, with an eye to the immediate future, offering an insider’s guide of how we humans, individually and collectively, can choose to powerfully shape our lives and change our future. In these pages you’ll learn how to live with greater peace, more abundantly, and deeper in love and loved.

Your brother in adventure,

Read PRAISE for Life on Earth!

“Mike, your approach to this book launch was fantastic. I don't know if any other author has done this, but you are certainly on the cutting edge of how to relate your work to your readers in the 21st century. I hope other authors follow your example of walking through their books with video conferencing. I think it takes courage and confidence to put yourself out there live each evening with "God-knows-what" Q&As will come up (yeah, God knows - hah!), and you did it very well. Thanks. We love you.”

What can I say but thank you for the book!!!!”
