Today we visit with Case Parks at Bell Rock Vortex in Sedona, AZ.
Case is best known for his YouTube channel Everyday Masters where with an alluring mix of wisdom and humor, speaks on various mind-expanding subjects such as reconnective healing, the existence of higher self, and what it’s like to live within the 5th dimension.
Case was a living embodiment of a magical life from the very first moment we met him. We watched in awe as he rolled effortlessly into a parking spot that seemed to appear out of nowhere in the crowded lot of a major tourist destination.
While conducting the interview, we were interrupted by a wandering tourist who walked right between us and the camera. He seemed drawn to Case and as you can hear in this video, says to us, “You have the most interesting conversations”.
We all agreed that this random stranger, captivated by the amazing energy of this interview, was meant to be included, so we made no attempt to edit him out. Case, welcome to Radiant Creators!
