Jeff Divine was born to working middle class parents in rural Michigan. He was baptized Greek Orthodox and converted to Roman Catholicism at the age of 7. He attended Catholic school from the 2nd through 6th grade and then was moved to public school. Still passionate about God, he returned to catechism classes at night as a young teen.
Eventually he became disenfranchised with Christianity, namely due its position on gay marriage. Jeff felt God created people perfectly and he believed that the Church saw people in the LGBTQ+ community as fundamentally sinful. Jeff loved all people and believed they should be given the same right to marry whomever they choose to love.
While attending business school at Western Michigan University, Jeff stumbled upon a website about personal growth. This was the first time he encountered the idea that you could improve and change yourself, and that you could create your own reality. A holy fire was lit in his heart and he began to consume information on the subject rapidly. It wasn’t long before it lead him back into the realm of spirituality, something he thought he had left behind years before.
By the time he had finished his degree he also met his first spiritual teacher, a Sufi woman who introduced him to the Dances of Universal Peace. He encountered New Age concepts and Paramahansa Yogananda, he learned about yoga and meditation, life after death, chakras, and reincarnation. Jeff began having profound, transcendental, mystical and spiritual experiences awakened by yoga, meditation, and other spiritual practices he was exploring.
In one such experience, he was visited by Angels who came to him with a message from God. They told him his Life Purpose was to “Bring people back to God.” Profoundly awestruck by the Glory of God, and totally impacted and humbled, he shook and he wept, vowing to follow God to fulfill his destiny.
That Fall he sold all his possessions, filled a backpack with clothes, and left for Northern California where he studied yoga, deepened his spiritual studies, explored radical dietary philosophies, met many different people, and continued his business and entrepreneurial career at an internet marketing company. This move was a significant leap of faith because this is the moment he began consciously and intentionally living his life fully for God. This is when everything began to change for him.
After a year he once again sold all his possessions, filled a backpack, and flew to Hawaii where he found natural harmony with the Hare Krishna community. There he experienced deep immersion in an Indian religion, listened to regular talks about Krishna, and learned about deep love, devotion, and worship for God. He stayed for five years before meeting his Twin Flame Shaleia and discovering and beginning their life’s work together.
Meeting Shaleia in Sedona, AZ was the most profoundly transformative experience of Jeff’s life. She introduced him to her spiritual teacher, a nun who had left the convent to raise a family and eventually went on to explore New Age spirituality and personal growth. It was in this moment of Jeff’s life that everything on his spiritual journey came together and blossomed into profound realization and awareness, rapidly transforming him from one who sought Truth to one who had found Truth. Jeff’s spiritual ability to channel fully awoke along with other spiritual and healing gifts. After one year of studying under that spiritual teacher, she died. Jeff and Shaleia then became the teacher.
During this time, everything and everyone in both their lives fell away. Every family member, friend, every opportunity and dollar in their bank account vanished. On the brink of total destitution, their book “Twin Flames: Finding Your Ultimate Lover” was born, which was to become the guidebook to Harmonious Twin Flame Union, that others might share in the infinite ecstasy and bliss of Harmonious Twin Flame Union.
Having hit social and financial rock bottom, and with nothing but God, each other, and the teaching, they rose up from the ashes of their old lives to give birth to what would become Unionism, steadily growing a following of students for their “Twin Flame Ascension School.” The majority of those who completed live classes and continued the work went on to attain Harmonious Union.
Today, Jeff and Shaleia live in a beautiful home in the hills overlooking Lake Michigan. Having had total faith in giving all of themselves to God completely, He transformed them in His image and uses them as His instrument of peace. Together in total humility and service to His Love, they lead the development of the Church of Union and the cultivation of Unionism in those willing seekers of Truth that all may enter into eternity in the Kingdom of Heaven on Earth with God and know true love.
