Some people get it right
the first time; others are slow learners who take a
long time to find what they really, really want in a love
relationship. That was the two of us!
When we finally found each
other in 2006, we each were ready for a deep connection to
someone of like mind and heart. Each of us had individually
done our work -- processed much of our emotional "stuff"
over the years, expanded and extended our spiritual
foundations, developed self love and maturity and found
authenticity and integrity of self. We also had explored
what it was we wanted in a life partner and set our
intention for that.
(aka JoySee) lived in rural
Mariposa, CA, near Yosemite National Park, a beautiful,
pristine area, but not one with a lot of mature, single men. Davie
lived about 150 miles away in the Silicon Valley of
California in a city top-heavy with men working in the
computer field. So each of us used Internet dating services
to find potential mates.
Joyce found Davie's profile first
and cooled her heels for three months before he responded.
Somehow, his profile and photo kept her attention during
that time even as she deleted other profiles of men who also
didn't respond or weren't "right" for her. She knew her perfect mate
was on his way to her, and she was sure it was -- as she put
it -- "him (Davie) or someone better."
In the meantime, Davie was
looking for someone as well, and at long last he noticed
Joyce's response to his profile. As we began emailing each
other, it was apparent to both of us that we had a lot in
common, including our writing and communication interests
and our spiritual paths.
To avoid being disappointed later
in the relationship, we asked each other very pointed and
frank questions in many areas of life which were answered
honestly by both of us before we took the next step of
meeting in person. That day finally came -- and walking on
the beach at Moss Landing that afternoon in July 2006, we both knew we
had something special.
found that special feeling only getting better since then
-- in so many ways.
We know we are soul mates, who are here to assist each other
to higher consciousness. In addition to enjoying the
intimacy, fun, travel and new experiences of being a couple,
we both have supported each other with our writing,
collaborated on other projects and have attended seminars,
conferences and retreats for deeper spiritual understanding
of the New Spirituality.
This spiritual quest has
taken us to India three times for
Oneness Blessing training and
education and then back home where we give these blessings
regularly to individuals. This last time in 2013 we each
were awakened. Since then, Davie has been involved in
Oneness in many ways, including doing a daily Livestream
session (see our Links page). Joyce
has supported him in his involvement and also has been
delving into A Course in Miracles. Our spiritual paths have
also led the two of us to attend
Abraham-Hicks events and delve into "Conversations with God"
principles. From all of this -- and much more -- we
are excited about being of service to others and giving of
what we have learned and from our experience.
We were married on February
1, 2008 and now live in Campbell, California. Davie has a
B.S. degree in Finance from San Jose State University and is a Rosicrucian and an astrologer. Joyce has a interfaith
ministerial degree and doctorate in Spiritual Studies from
Emerson Theological Institute as well as an M.A. in
Communication Studies from Sacramento State University and
B.A. from Alverno College, Milwaukee, WI. She
also is a handwriting analyst. Between us, we have four
grown children from prior marriages, eight grandchildren and
