Russell and Beckie Forsyth have been married over thirty years and have two sons from previous marriages. From these sons, they share four grandchildren and families all over Texas and the United States. So a big part of his life has been involved in raising a family, therefore Russell believes that he is your average American citizen.
Russell is a carpenter by trade and has been doing remodeling and repairs for the past thirty years. In 2005, Russell and Beckie’s company completed a two year historic restoration in the Central Austin area that won the Merit Award for Restoration that was given by the Heritage Society of Austin. The award was a crowning achievement for his life long love for old houses.
Russell has always been interested in music and is an accomplished singer songwriter. His main instrument was the guitar until the late eighties when Beckie conspired with a friend to borrow Russell’s twelve string guitar, only to return it on his birthday as a Mandocello. An instrument maker converted the instrument. The mandocello is the original bass sound instrument that compliments the mandolin. It has been referred to as the “instrument of the angels” like the harp. This provides a unique sound and format that Russell uses to present his music. His first CD was released in 2005 and is titled “A Prayer for You”. His second CD titled “One Thing”is music dedicated to the power of love. Russell’s third music project was released under the name Thundering Grace and featured original Mandocello music with some great Austin musicians.
In April 2006, Russell attended a certification program for the purpose of self healing. On that weekend, Russell went from award winning Contractor to an ANGEL THERAPIST®. Then in February 2007, Russell returned to California for another certification in the area of Mediumship, and in 2008 completed the Advanced Angel Therapy Practitioner Class with Dr. Doreen Virtue.
Since the April 2006, Russell has invented a crystal healing bed, written six books, facilitates various intuitive and energy related workshops, has appeared in TV pilot shows, co-produced theatrical productions, co-hosted radio shows, and has developed a reference guide and training program for the intuitive reader, energy practitioners, the medical intuitive, and the modern shaman. Russell’s crystal bed is called the Forsyth Crystal Light Table® and is currently operated by trained practitioners in Austin, New York City, Fort Worth, Houston, and San Antonio.
Russell and Beckie mission statement is to ease suffering, bring joy and create beauty.
