Ken Elliott

Ken Elliott is an artist and writer living in Castle Rock, Colorado. 

He is a full-time artist, and someone who has experienced and collected astonishing stories for over 30 years.

His book, Manifesting 1, 2, 3 … and You Don’t Need #3 is not an ordinary Manifesting or Law of Attraction book.

The book contains critically new information beyond the Law of Attraction and makes the entire manifesting process amazingly simple. Special tools or talents are not necessary. 

The book also provides an elegant tool for dealing with your worries and negative thoughts. Thoughts create, and you don’t want to empower the negative ones!

Ken has experienced sending objects in thought and having them appear in the home of someone gifted enough to describe what had been sent. 

Ken learned that intentions instantaneously start to manifest on the Other Side. 

Ken has commented, "I was fortunate. I directly learned that thought creates, and does so immediately. 

“In this book, I relate how thoughts begin to form in the non-physical world, and how you can bring them into your life simply and efficiently! The information I gleaned is so simple, it is laughable.”

A number of true stories are included in the book to clarify concepts and for your encouragement.

This is a results-oriented book. Over and over, people tell Ken about their successes with Manifesting 1, 2, 3

They say, It just works!”

Start pointing yourself toward happiness and don't forget, there is a bonus…

Guest Biography:

From debilitating chronic fatigue to the US Open in 6 months’ time, Veronica Karaman knows something about developing a championship mentality for overcoming adversity to make the impossible possible. The founder of, she is a speaker, golf professional, and high performance coach for aspiring athletes and other achievers. She is also an 8-time best-selling author of The Champion’s Way: Core Foundations for Achieving Peak Performance in Sports and Life, and her newest book, God, Make Me a Champion! An Athlete’s Journey of Faith into the Power of Surrender.  Her passion and mission in life is to release the inner champion in others. 

It was through her own journey out of “outward success but inward brokenness” as an overachieving, performance-driven athlete that Veronica discovered a better way to do life and performance---from a place of love and acceptance.

Her 12 Module on-line training system, The Champion’s Way, is based on the four zones of performance: the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual. Equipping athletes with a framework of thought as to how peak performance happens instills in them a holistic approach to achievement.

Veronica also helps her students develop the identity of a champion so they perform from the center of who they are and not from the illusive meaning of an outward goal.

Her greatest passion and joy is in helping faith-based athletes make the connection between their faith and competition.

A graduate of Duke University and Regent University, Veronica holds two master’s degrees. She currently lives in Pinehurst, North Carolina, where she still enjoys playing championship golf as a senior competitor. Her golf career highlight was playing in the 1989 Women’s US Open.

Guest Occupation: Former Chair Department of Medicine at Columbia University Medical Center, present Director of the Center for Human Longevity & Senior Sprinter
Guest Biography:

Landry has focused on novel approaches to intractable health problems, combining medicine and organic chemistry. His work on cocaine addiction led to the discovery of an artificial enzyme to degrade cocaine. His report on the enzyme, published in Science, was chosen by the American Chemical Society as one of the 25 most important chemistry papers in the world for 1993. An agent (Cocaine esterase) he co-developed to treat cocaine overdose has entered clinical trials from Tonix Pharmaceuticals.[17][18][19] He founded the Columbia Organic Chemistry Collaborative Center and it is through this Center that he conducts his current work on drug discovery.

Landry discovered a new hormone deficiency syndrome: vasopressin deficiency in vasodilatory shock. In pioneering the use of vasopressin to treat septic shock and vasodilatory shock after cardiopulmonary bypass, he changed clinical practice for these life-threatening conditions. He also founded ICU nephrology at Columbia, introducing continuous renal replacement therapy to treat renal failure in patients with shock.

Landry developed an alternative method for the production of human embryonic stem cells that relies on harvesting live, normal cells from embryos that—by objective, peer-reviewed criteria—have died of natural causes. Cells harvested from dead embryos would be covered under the established ethics governing transplantation of essential organs from deceased donors.

Guest Occupation: QHHT Level 3 Practitioner,
Guest Biography:

Born and raised in India into a “large joint family”, I always felt like the odd one out. I valued isolation and I wasn’t afraid to speak my mind, traits that often clashed with my family’s traditions and expectations of me. I loved spending time in the woods behind my house and could wander for hours, fascinated by nature. As a child I was insecure of my differences. Over time, I have come to fall in love with my individuality. 

In 2002, I got married and moved to the US. I graduated as an Interior designer, fully believing that it would remain my life-long career. But life had more to offer. Over the next 20 years, my family moved from country to country, but it was in 2015, after our move to Hong Kong, that my life changed. After experiencing a life altering event,  I underwent a major spiritual awakening and enrolled for my first QHHT session. 

My own QHHT session gave me clarity and provided a path that brought me to my life’s purpose. In the session I was told that I would become a healer myself. I felt an intuitive sense of connection to QHHT and knew I wanted to be a part of something bigger and more powerful than myself. I went on to train under Julia Cannon and learned her mother Dolores’ Quantum Healing Hypnosis technique. After conducting sessions on hundreds of clients, and undergoing extensive examination, I became a level three practitioner. 

Every day my life’s purpose is amplified by the joy my work brings me. My passion is to bring awareness to people that all healing and all answers lie within us. If we pay attention to our inner landscape instead of depending on our external environment for clarity, then the results can be limitless.

Guest Biography:

Hello, I am MJ (Mary Jo) Ross, and I’ve lived in Oklahoma since 1998. I have an extensive background in nonprofits and business, but I’m here to share things about me that are more personal.

If you’ve been abused or know someone who has, I want you to know that there is healing no matter how bad the abuse is or was. It is possible to not only survive but also thrive. It’s not an easy journey, but it is worth it.

As a survivor of many types of abuse from birth to right before I started my senior year of high school, I was born into a generational satanic cult, sex trafficked by four family members, and experienced awful things you don’t want to imagine.

After years of feeling ashamed about what happened to me, I finally realized in 2022 that I was not the one who should be ashamed. The abusers should be. I discovered that telling my story and supporting other survivors has helped me heal. It also permits others to share their story.

Even after years of therapy, instead of using drugs, alcohol, cutting, starving, binging, or many other things to keep the feelings and memories deep inside and try to cut them off completely, I became a workaholic. After all, when you work seven days a week for years, it’s easy to ignore those feelings and memories.

As a single mom without child support, I quickly got caught up in work. As an executive director of up to six nonprofit state professional associations at the same time, I also owned a for-profit association management and consulting company. I helped start a national nonprofit on top of that.

Work travel kept me on the road 26 weekends a year for three straight years. I became severely burned out. I had to close my business because it was too dependent on me. It was excruciating because I discovered that my work was my identity. Knowing that I’m not meant for the corporate world, I opened a consulting business along the way and trained as a Small Business Transformation Coach to learn all the company “stuff” I didn’t know the first time.

I began volunteering with SCORE Tulsa as a mentor, helping business owners and nonprofit executives write business plans and guide their businesses toward a successful future. I also met a representative of The Demand Project through LinkedIn and became a volunteer with their organization which fights crimes against children.
