I am a native of San Francisco. My childhood was strewn with glimpses of possibility, but I was generally socialized to view the world as hostile and taught to choose protection and safety over authenticity. Acting was an early outlet for me to explore authentic self-expression – in fact, I went on to become a professional actor (best known for playing Drake Belson on “The Young & Restless”). Despite a fairly successful career, I quit acting in 2000 – the joy of the art form was gone and I was no longer having fun.
I found my way to business and played the role of a real estate developer in the dream I called my life. When the market crashed in 2007-2008 my sense of self as I had constructed it came apart as well as my business. I turned to my lifelong personal growth passion and my love of writing to make sense of my circumstances. I completed my master’s degree in Spiritual Psychology at the University of Santa Monica (which I had begun several years earlier) and started writing my first book. Weight Release: A Liberating Journey came out in January of 2010. The book chronicled my own challenges with physical weight (I have over a 100 lbs. swing from my low weight to my high weight in my adult life), but it also followed my journey to release the inner weight of self-doubt and limitation.
The process of promoting my book led me to discover another great love – radio. I was invited to host my own show on KKZZ (1400 AM) in Southern California. “The Freeman Michaels Show” aired for about a year, but the time commitment was too much. Yet, out of the experience Cutting Edge Consciousness was born (which originally aired on KKZZ and now airs on KVTA, and other networks).
I am an author, coach, trainer, and speaker. I specialize in weight release coaching, business coaching, prosperity coaching and relationship coaching (with a special program for singles wanting to attract a partner). I am so grateful to be able to connect with amazing people, grow, learn and serve my higher calling.
