About the Author


    • My name is Lubo Iliev. I began learning about subtle energies, auras, meditation and healing at the age of ten through the writings of Akira Toriyama. When I was thirteen, a student of Dr. Samuil Slonimsky, a well-known M.D. and energy healer from Russia, informed me that the things I was discussing (i.e. gathering and channeling energy) and doing (i.e. astral projection) were not simply fictional concepts but rather advanced level energy and meditation practices. This motivated me to take my learning more seriously. However, I was not yet ready to practice the things I was studying, so I simply continued learning about subtle energies.
    • At the age of eighteen, I began learning the specifics of subtle energies through the writings of Donna Eden, Barbara Ann Brennan and Ambika Wauters. I also started following the writings of Masashi Kishimoto and Noriaki Kubo (Tite Kubo). While following the writings of the various energy practitioners and authors, I performed the exercises in the different books and I improved my understanding of subtle energies.
    • I studied Tae Kwon Do under Grand Master Jae Hun Kim from 2001 to 2008. It was my martial arts training that also reinforced the concepts of Chi/Ki. I am currently continuing my martial arts training in the Danzan Ryu style of Jujitsu; thus, furthering my experience and understanding of Chi/ Ki.
    • I have been trained as a Level 1 Reiki practitioner in the Usui System of Natural Healing as taught by Reiki Master Bogdana Mihaylova. After my formal training, I added Ted Andrews and Paula Horan as my indirect teachers via their writings. It was through Bogdana, the writings of Paula Horan and other sources that I learned about the power of symbols as they pertain to energy healing.
    • I graduated from Boston University's College of Arts and Sciences with a degree in Philosophy and Psychology. These two fields further increased my understanding of Consciousness, Unconsciousness, Mental States and the inter-connectivity between the Mind, Body and Spirit. In addition, I have a Graphic & Web Designer degree from Boston University's College of Communication.
  • In 2009, I was able to combine my formal education, my spiritual and healing teachings and my energy work in the form of the Images of Positivity book. Now, I work with several individuals trying to heal their ills as well as improve their mental states. I use a combination of image therapy and energy channeling.
