Ray Sette’s fascination with the metaphysical and a deeper understanding of life began in his teenage years, perhaps even earlier, while he was searching for a greater knowing of himself and the Universe around him, but his actual study of the Metaphysical, or more accurately, guidance of life’s possibilities, didn’t take off until his university days.
While working toward his Bachelor of Fine Arts (B.F.A.) degree at , Ray took an interest in psychology and the human condition. His thirst for answers, or more precisely, the knowledge to know what to question, spurred him on to eventually study the discipline as a minor.
By 1985, Ray had moved passed psychology and into parapsychology and the metaphysical when he began studying astrology. Once he graduated from university, Ray began freelancing as a graphic designer and eventually began working full time in graphic arts, but his heart and mind yearned for more. That’s when Ray discovered the profound discipline of mediation through his studies in the .
Ray, who turned to the Silva Method with a deep desire to make his life better, completed the basic lecture series in 1988. Though a decent student in college–during his last 3 semesters at university, he did make the Dean’s list–Ray always had a difficult time maintaining focus, remembering what he learned, and applying it. He felt he had to work twice as hard as everyone around him. He found the Silva Mind Development techniques to be a great asset to both his concentration in work and focus on his life. His outlook on life and living had changed. He was thinking in a different way now. Suddenly, life was more interesting. He found opportunities everywhere. For the first time in his young life, he didn’t just exist, shuffling from one moment to another; he was living. He was alive! And every precious moment was worth living, exploring through and beyond all those unopened doors!
His interest and study of metaphysics and astrology grew rapidly. And he found the focus he developed from Silva helped him not only learn astrology, which came effortlessly, at a deeper level, but he could also more precisely apply what he’d learned. From the years between 1988 and 1995, Ray repeated the Silva course, in its entirety, more than 40 times! In addition to the Silva method, he underwent numerous other classes in Metaphysics and began formal studies at the and eventually earned a B.A. in Metaphysics.
In 1990, he joined the American Federation of Astrologers and began meeting with clients on a professional level. He excelled and his list of clients grew rapidly! Ray also began various advanced Silva Method classes with the late Jose Silva, the creator of the world-renowned program, and by 1993, Ray had successfully completed the Graduate Silva as well as many other advanced Silva Method programs.
Eventually, Ray left his demanding, more than full-time job as a senior graphic designer to focus solely on his metaphysical work. This was prompted by his desire to serve the people of our increasingly small world by providing them with opportunities for guidance and enlightenment and more so, Inspiration for each to discover the potential that exists in each individual.
When pressed for a more personal motivation, Ray refers to the unfathomable events that unfolded on September 11, 2001. “I took a very deep and long look at my life, where I was going, and what it is that I desire to give to Humanity,” Ray confessed. “I feel that there is information in the Universe that can help us all to create better lives, and one of those tools is the understanding of Metaphysics and more precisely, a deep, personal knowing of Spirituality. With the knowledge that I have received from Spirit, I can give back what I have learned and feel that I am making a worthwhile contribution to Humanity and I am leaving a legacy once I make my own transition into Spirit.”
Ray’s knowing of metaphysics and spirituality is a tool for our creation and understanding of events in our lives and how each of us CREATES all that comes to manifestation in our lives and our undivided connection to each other and all things in the Universe. These tools are important to anyone who chooses to seek the answers to life’s questions and to realize – not just to conceive, but to achieve – the potential in each of us. Information people receive from the Metaphysical and Spirit can be used to understand life, how we create it, and how to learn from the choices we’ve made by making better, more insightful, choices in the future. These tools don’t exactly provide answers. More accurately, they provoke questions in the users to better provide themselves with their own answers by reminding them of their past and showing them the potential paths for the future.
Time and again, metaphysics has played an important part in Ray’s existence and life’s experience. “My Spiritual knowing helps me to strip away all the excess so I see my life at its most basic,” Ray confesses. “Like a caterpillar creates a cocoon to transform itself into a butterfly, so I use metaphysics and spirituality to reinvent myself.”
Ray uses his spiritual and metaphysical knowing as a sort of guidepost on his journey through life. By understanding planetary energy and the aspects of planetary placement in the heavens, and our connection to Spirit, he is able to look into the past at the choices he made that were not necessarily choices that served him, understand why he made the choices he did, and understand what he could do to create a different situation for himself – a different life – that he might not have considered before but, he discovered, could serve him better and allow him to gain deeper insight into himself. He could more clearly discern opportunities – choices – ahead of him and then choose the path more befitting the individual he wanted to become.
By October of 2003, radio stations around the world were inviting Ray to be their guest, and he soon began guest appearances on various morning news and lifestyle television programs! And, in 2004, Ray ventured into another medium–print–with his writing appearing in consumer periodicals, including Dell Horoscope and other Spiritual and Metaphysical publications.
Ray has been heard in Cork, Ireland (on RedFM 104-106), London, England (BBC 94.9 FM), and across the United States. Since January 2006, he has appeared as a regular guest on the “Frank DeCaro Show” on Sirius XM Satellite Radio. His television appearances have included syndicated morning lifestyle shows such as “Daytime” and “Better TV,” and the popular New Jersey cable TV show “One On One with Steve Adubato.”
On why he enjoys radio and television interviews: “What I do is what I love to do, and having the opportunity to interact with others while sharing my expertise on such a grand scale is exciting and fulfilling.” Though Ray is often asked to discuss predictions ranging in topics from celebrities to political figures to the state of economy, he is most gratified to be able to impress on audiences how “Spirituality is really a means to help on one’s path through life.”
Ray’s web site continues to grow in popularity as the number of visitors frequenting the site each month rises. The visitors hail from places as close as his hometown to as far away as Australia. He’s able to provide frequent updates on astrological forecasts for the Full and New Moon. He also charts any current planetary movement, such as the Mercury retrograde. You can even check out the site to learn when he will next be a featured guest expert on a radio or television show!
Since going full time in his metaphysical and spiritual profession, he is no longer bogged down by the mental strain of work politics. In fact, Ray has become even more intuitive. His mind has opened and he is more receptive to messages given to him from the universe. Although he was aware of Spirit energy, specifically of those who have transitioned into the Spirit Realm since a very, very young age, Ray had not completely sharpened his ability to interact with those who have departed the physical realm and have transitioned into Spirit. Once he began delving into his metaphysical profession on a full-time basis, the spectral doors opened wide, and the lines of communication became abundantly clear. At this point, Ray was being invited into private homes, as well as public establishments, where he conducts his psychic/gallery events.
When asked how he came to write his book, , Ray explained, “I was in a place of a high spirit vibration when Spirit bestowed upon me the inspiration for this book. This revelation came to me in part because of my desire to create something that would influence humanity through the realization of the human potential, which resides in each and every human being.”
In 2009, Ray became ordained and is now “Rev. Ray!” He performs and conducts non-denominational and spiritual wedding and funeral services.
