Who is Barry Bicknese?
Let me introduce myself, my name is Barry. I was born near the Dutch-Belgian border. I was raised by both my parents to be moral, scientific and anti-religious. I am of mixed heritage. My mother is Chinese from Java, descendant from a business family. My father is of mixed mainly European descent from a family with a military and artistic tradition. They got divorced when I was six years old.
When I was young I had prescient dreams, could sense things and I had contact with spirits, but was unable to take control over this part of my life and tried to shut it out. My experiences became further and further apart until I managed to shut them out completely by the time I was sixteen. I then went on to study biology and psychology in which I attained a master's degree.
While still a student I was diagnosed with an incurable wide spectrum allergy. When medical science after many years still failed to provide a solution I decided to see if the paranormal experiences I had in my youth might lead me to a solution. I found healers and teachers and learned that the key to my healing was to stop blocking my own spiritual talents. So I began to pray and communicate with my guides and received guidance on how to develop my talents and inspiration on how I might use them. Since 1997 I have been trying to help those around me using my talents and teaching others how to use theirs.
My spiritual studies progressed as follows:
Who is Darja Bicknese?
Hi, my name is Kristine. I was born in the cultural and musical heart of Latvia, the city of Liepaja on the Baltic coast. While growing up I was surrounded by many traditions. My grandmother was Muslim, my grandfather atheist, my mother follows the old traditions believing in the power of nature and I was baptized Christian Orthodox.
I was never one to obey and follow the herd so I struck out on my own when I turned fifteen. Since then I have had to face many challenges, poverty, drugs, starvation, hitchhiking around Europe and living in squats. But my path has taught me to stay positive.
“If you are hitchhiking and nobody is stopping it is easy to lose yourself. But no-one will stop until the right time has come. You can weep, you can be angry, you can stand outside in the rain, but nothing will change. Just calm down, do your what you can and accept whatever the results will be”
My journey leads me to meet many interesting people by heeding my own intuition and serving higher powers. In Lithuania I became a student of a spiritual master who led a spiritual community. In this community he taught us how to live in harmony with nature and how to rid ourselves of our negative patterns. When the master died I left the community and started to study at the hospitality college in Liepaja.
In Liepaja I became inspired to find someone who could help me to work with the link between music and spirituality. This was the start of a new path of development for me. It has led me not only to making music, but also to organizing an annual music festival combining music with energy.
One night in my dreams I met a man and I fell in love with him. I wrote down my dream and then got back to my usual routine. Later I was guided to attend a spiritual seminar where I literally met the man of my dreams. This would not have happened to me if I had not both received guidance from the spiritual people around me and had chosen to follow my own heart. A bit over a year after we met we got married and we now have a wonderful daughter. Already in my childhood I knew I when I would give birth.
