Meet Dr. Rod
Dear visitor, I am glad that you and I have connected on this page. Here is a little about me; I was born in Tehran, Iran and came to the United States when I was 10 years old. My family and I went through extreme hardship through our migration, post the Iranian Revolution.
After a year of stay in Europe, we arrived to California. I quickly fell in love with my new home, started school with honors, and made sure to fit in with my peers. My educational excellence has always put me on the fast track in life.
However, my biggest lesson started when I was attacked by a group of thugs on my first day of public high school.
Following this very traumatic event, I decided to change schools and enrolled in a private Jewish school called, Valley Torah High School. This is where my life turned around. It was here that I had the honor of learning about Judaism on a regular basis.
My interest predominantly laid in the spirituality aspects of Jewish Mysticism called Kabbalah. I had an amazing Rabbi who taught me about the nature of our universe and deep mystical secrets. As a result, I began my journey of inner transformation at a very young age.
After graduating high school with the top honors, I ended up at California State University, Northridge where I chose to study Biology. I was inspired to become a physician and use my scientific knowledge to better serve humanity. I had this dream to become a healer from a very young age and thought that Medical School was the answer to that dream. However, towards the end of my studies, I took a Psychology course that taught Modern Western Psychology through Eastern Philosophy. I was amazed by my professor, Dr. Roger Moss, to whom I always extend my deepest gratitude for my biggest breakthrough in life. I loved learning about Buddhism, Hinduism, Taoism, and so forth. It was a fresh opening for me, a new discovery. Therefore, I continued to study Psychology and did further Soul searching. Regardless of this new frontier, I followed my dream of becoming a doctor as well. This journey prepared me to become more of my authentic Self as it unfolded.
I had the pleasure of studying abroad at UAG Medical School where I learned to speak Spanish, I lived in a very unique environment, and worked in the poorest areas of the world. Guadalajara, Mexico had become my new home. My life became very challenging to adapt and handle. Being in a long distance relationship and the extreme pressures of keeping up with medical school led me into severe depression:
I found myself trapped in my own thoughts. I was hopeless, lacked self worth, couldn’t sleep, lost a lot of weight, couldn’t concentrate, had low self esteem, and couldn’t enjoy life. Experiencing this for the first time, I didn’t know how to handle my feelings. I battled through my emotional challenges and career until I finished Medical School.
This journey motivated me to do lots of personal development work on myself. I started reading spiritual books, listened to thousands of hours of motivational speakers, learned how to meditate, did positive affirmations, and completely changed my energy field from negative into positive. As I faced my new self , I became stronger to not give up. I was encouraged to become more disciplined, inspired, and find my TRUE ESSENCE
Along this path, I had many beautiful souls who helped reshape me into discovering my true identity which is a “spiritual being having a temporary human incarnation.” My life’s path further took me to New York in order to finish my Medical Internship Doctorate program at New York Medical College . Moreover, I successfully finished all of my medical board exams. Check out my Credentials. I changed my direction from continuing into completing a medical residency and choose to follow my passion. My dream of becoming a physician led me to my inner calling, destiny, and purpose in life: An intention to love, to heal, to inspire, and to be abundantly wealthy for myself and others in order to raise the collective cosmic consciousness. I intend to heal and change the world for the better.
I EXPERIENCED THE MIRACLE OF HEALING AND AWAKENING
Dr. Rod’s Mission and Goal in Life
Through his self journey and practice with the life visioning process at Agape, Dr. Rod Pezeshki has connected to his purpose in life. He is clear about his mission and lives it daily. It is to “reflect and reveal the Divine through his life. This is what I mean by knowing my ‘calling’ and I can help you get connected to yours!”. “Living a purposeful life with passion is my goal in life. I turned my life around when I started looking within for solutions, rather than looking outwards. My life transformed when I began to understand that I am more, I deserve to treat myself better, and that I am good enough. I changed my habits, and chose better habits. As I changed from within, I realized that my circumstances changed from without. The more I became detached from my Ego, the more I felt oneness with the universe. I am a promoter of peace and positive energy. My purpose in life is to serve others, through my career, or through the smallest deeds.
To quote Lao Tzu, “Great acts are made up of small deeds”. I believe that our creator has intended for us to give, to share, to love, to be great role models and excellent human beings. We have great responsibilities, and I believe that in our generation we have to be proactive. Realizing the world around us is nothing more or nothing less than the reflection of what we have become from within. Thus, we must become the very things we choose to experience in our life…peace, abundance, success, well-being, generosity, compassion, and above all LOVE!
My goal is to spread this message:
“Live a Purposeful Life with Passion!!”
