We had the good fortune of connecting with Jordan Serpentini and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Jordan, what role has risk played in your life or career?
I look at risk like fruits on a tree. If there’s a certain fear I have with doing something, anything really, that means that fruits for me. For within the doubt and the fear our mind says, lies a task of growth to expand out of just our heads. Pushing us further from our head into our hearts, and giving us strength to make amends with our dark.

So risk is a part of this human game or a simple step on the ladder. Where what you focus on materializes. Within this game you have to jump before you pull the parachute, dive into trust and self understanding first which keeps us in our most illuminated and activated state. You don’t need risk to be successful by any means however you do need the tension of fear to overcome in order to embody worthiness of receiving your dreams, living your truth and finding life’s ultimate connection.

 

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
At this point in life my favorite thing about what I do and the creativity I live is all about creating a more harmonious world. Where we all live in abundance and contentment for where we are and what we have in the right here and now of life. I, like all of us I’m sure have had some serious self created pit falls in life. Where I was blowing past my signs to slow down and change course and not living in my full truth.

Thankful life always plays in the favor of your growth and blessed me with my just desserts. I grew up skateboarding since I was 7 years young. I turned professional by the age of 21, and traveled the world. Art has always been an amazing outlet for me in my life, while music took a small passion in the back corner of my life’s offerings.

After having a traumatic brain injury where I got knocked out skating without a helmet, I had to take 10 days of stillness to reset my mind. Within that time, I had been given a most powerful vision that changed the course of my life. Not only did I hear that internal voice, elegantly and softly reassuring me that from here in out I was not alone, and that as long as I followed my heart I would be brought to the right people and places to make the changes my heart was seeking. My heart was seeking enlightenment, wholeness and a purpose.

I was given an ice cube in this vision where it melted almost immediately in my hand symbolizing that everything changes, as well as a guitar pick symbolizing the new ladder I was to climb.away from skateboarding snd the olympics.

Humbly I hopped into living life through my intuitive energetic system or my hearts gps I like to call it. My god did it set up some Increibly impeccable situations that ignited my fire with people that WERE living their truths and people that ARE making big change to providing peace to the planet by means of healing, murals and music.

So I started fro the bottom going to open mics, learning reiki healing and creating opportunities within my minds eye to paint murals. With the sole intention of creating a beautiful world, I dove into service. I have since attuned 60+ people to do their own reiki healing as well as have painted over 30 murals within the past 4 years. Thankfully I am on my second musical album and have since toured the country creating a wave of healers and movement of love wherever I go. My legacy of love is living proof of asking and receiving. I lose the question, how much change can just one person make in the world? And with that I leave the answer of exactly however much you deem yourself worthy of!

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
I always love the local perspective on anywhere I get the blessing to experience. So if someone was visiting me, I would show them all of my favorite spots done with a lot of love. I’m talking my favorite nature spots like waterfalls and hikes with Beaitiful views, as well as food that can’t be replicated anywhere else because it’s just so unique and done with a lot of heart. I would show people all over Cleveland Ohio for that’s where my soul calls home this lifetime round.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
Man oh man, there have been hundreds of people upon my path to at have lifted me up to help me fly along my journey to the sky. I want to give thanks to them all, either big or small. Specifically my parents for letting me be who I came here to. Both of them had to go through some rejection of what they hoped for me in order for me to be who I really needed to. I am in so much appreciation to above and below. My physical friends, my family, supporters of any kind, down to the kind stranger that fuels me up with an unconditional smile, as well as my esthetic team. I’m so grateful to my connection within to all that I am. Helping me intuitively journey through life down my path of least resistance to receiving my dreams, creating serendipitea wherever I, where I find this beautiful flow.
