Author Bio: John H Leckie RD, MSc, BSc (Hons)
I am naturally inquisitive and an explorer at heart. As a physicist, my curiosity about life was stimulated by developing an understanding of matter and energy. Later, my appreciation about the nature of human beings was enhanced through working in professions that enabled me to explore how the world operates politically, financially and economically. Finding out how I fitted into the scheme of things was my ultimate quest. Moreover, bringing out my authentic-self was another.
Electronics was my first professional passion. Being ever curious, I changed course to read for a first degree in nuclear physics (including particle physics and quantum mechanics), and later for a master’s in computer science and business studies. I was attracted to finance and world trade, which became another powerful passion.
My career path includes working in international consultancy, the United Nations (FAO and WFP), the World Bank (Washington DC) as well as in development banking and merchant banking/investment banking (City of London and the Middle East). I practiced in corporate finance, project finance, direct investments, company turn-around participating as a board member.
Working and living in Europe, America, the Middle East and Far East enabled me to develop a broad understanding of diverse cultures, religions and social customs. I have given workshops/seminars and talks to different groups of people, companies, businessmen’s associations, the United Nations, World Bank and investment banks in the UK, Europe, America, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and Dubai.
At the heart of my research is the dynamics of human energy fields, how they affect our life and how they can be changed to our advantage. I have been effectively upgrading the foundations of the motivational psychology, coaching and personal development I practice by incorporating energy dynamics into my work.
To unravel the secrets of life it’s necessary for each of us to raise our awareness to allow us to view life from several different directions. Getting to ‘know our-Self’ in depth is the new norm for the 21st century.
Much inspiration for my book came from an increasing awareness of the spiritual dynamics of life related to energy and the human energy fields. Linking this with my international work experiences highlighted four major observations, namely that there is:
- a lack of motivation and inner growth in conventional business and public sector life.
- a lack an understanding of the dynamics of human relationships and corporate culture.
- little awareness of how to connect with inner passions, intuition/hunches, creative abilities, higher intelligence and the authentic-self.
- no appreciation of the benefits to be gained from recognising that we are beings of energy.
Solutions are provided to the above four points in my book which was published at the beginning of the April year 2013.
