I’m currently in post production making a film on intuition.
Quite a few years ago, I had an intuitive “intervention” that saved my life.
I was working in New Orleans on a movie, and I had to drive to the airport early one morning to catch a flight back to LA. It was before sunrise, the streets were empty, and as I was approaching an intersection, I heard a voice that told me to slow down.
I was running late for the flight, and if anything I wanted to speed up to make sure I got through the intersection on the green light. But this voice was insistent, and so I slowed down. As I entered the intersection a massive truck ran a red light on the cross street, and missed me by inches.
If that voice hadn’t told me to slow down, and if I hadn’t listened to that voice, then I have no doubt I would have been killed.Ever since I’ve been fascinated by intuition, and I’ve wondered what that voice was, where did it come from, and why was my life saved.
And so now I’m making a film to not only answer those questions, but to also learn more about intuition, and to find out how I can bring my intuition into my every day decision making.
Here is a 4 minute video explaining what I’m doing –
As the video states, I’ve come to believe that we each have within us a guiding mechanism that tries to keep us safe, and on our path in life.
I’ve called it our Personal Guidance System, or PGS.
I started production in India in September 2014. I’ve since been gathering interviews and visual material from all over the world – not only India but Italy, Turkey, the United States, Canada, the Outback of Australia, and most recently Bhutan, where I interviewed the Prince of Bhutan, and shot at some very remote locations.
Essentially I’m looking at intuition from three perspectives – the spiritual, the religious, and the scientific.
So far I’ve interviewed more than 60 people, including one of India’s most revered living saints, a Buddhist scholar from the Dalai Lama Temple, theologians from the Vatican, an antiquarian librarian from Florence, a young university student from Dallas, a British born Hindu Swami from the holy city of Haridwar on the Ganges, the head of the University of Medical Intuition in San Francisco, the head of the Yoga Institute in Bombay, one of the world’d top neuroscientists in Missouri, a former research psychiatrist-turned-spiritualist from LA, a leader of the Whirling Dervishes in Konya Turkey, one of America’s top TV psychics, renowned intuitive Caroline Myss, in Northern California I interviewed one of the world’s leading research scientists delving into the physics and metaphysics of human consciousness – amongst many others.
And what I’m discovering, in speaking to all these people, is that there’s a basic consensus amongst them all as to what intuition is, and where it comes from – it’s just that they use their own particular language in discussing and describing it.
As for me, I’ve been an independent filmmaker for more than 30 years. I’ve produced and directed 15 feature films and over 40 hrs of documentary. I’ve won numerous awards, including Australian Film Institute Awards (Aussie “Oscars”) for Best Picture and Best Director, and two Logies (Aussie “Emmys”) for my documentary work.
My films have screened in Official Selection at Cannes, New York, Berlin, London, Toronto and various other film festivals. I’ve had three major international retrospectives – in the US, Germany and India.
In 2013 I walked the Camino de Santiago – and I walked it intuitively. I then wrote a book called THE WAY, MY WAY, which has now become something of a best seller for Camino pilgrims. Here’s a link to the Amazon site:
The film – called INTUITION IS YOUR PERSONAL GUIDANCE SYSTEM – will hopefully be released at 4:44pm on 4/4 – fourth of April – in 2018.
I’ll continue to post updates on this site.
