About Carson Gage

Rather than offer a biography filled with a list of dates, degrees, and career accomplishments, I’d like to share a few of the experiences and choices I’ve encountered that helped shape my world view. I suppose my path to becoming a spiritual seeker began with me flat on my back in the middle of one of Peoria’s busiest streets. Seven years old, I’d just narrowly missed being killed by a speeding car. The front of my bicycle was a heap of mangled metal and I was in a state of shock. Miraculously, the injuries suffered weren’t life threatening, despite being struck at high speed. 

For years, I repressed the terror that flooded my body when my peripheral vision detected an imminent mortal threat. Psychologically, I simply was unprepared to relive that day until many years later … eventually exploring the typical “what if” questions people ask when they’ve had a brush with death. This led to a growing interest in some of life’s most intriguing questions … questions I’d previously been unbothered by. Why are we here? What happens after we die? Do we live just one life or do we have multiple lives? Do we have a pre-life plan, and if so, how does it co-exist with free will? What about karma, is it real? And many others … 

Additionally, events in my twenties and thirties led to an interest in the concepts of synchronicity and soul mates. In college, I met my wife via a wrong number phone call and couldn’t help but wonder whether our initial crossing of paths was pre-ordained or just an odd coincidence. What about other people I’d met over the years? On rare occasion I’d encountered someone new … both of us experiencing an intense, unexplained familiarity … as if we’d know each other for decades. What had caused these strange feelings? 

Knowing many of us become spiritual seekers at some point, Soul Sessions is my humble attempt to start a dialogue with readers, where together we explore some of the big questions in life. I believe really good fiction is more than just a clever storyline and interesting characters. At its best, fiction can be a vehicle to challenge our pre-conceived ideas and thought processes. No doubt, it can be unsettling to question our deepest held beliefs, particularly when important matters are involved. But, if done right, together we may just find a few nuggets of truth that speak to us. 

Much love and happiness. 

Carson
