Continued emotional, physical and financial mastery is his sole focus and in this stage of his life, he thrives on helping others along their journeys. An interactive training course (Dixonondemand.com) and a theatrical experience (Re-Creation Encounter) have also been newly developed tools used to help thousands of seekers who want their intentions and actions to speak louder than their words.

In August 2018, with the inclusion of 21 of his most transformative clients’ stories, he released a life mastery manual titled, Re-Creationism, The Art of Shaping Reality (Re-Creationism.com). In March 2019, Lil Solar’s Book of Super Powers (Bookofsuperpowers.com), his first children’s/young adult novel was released globally as well.
