Gene is an extraordinary man. Knowing him as an artist with astonishing skills, I anticipated
enjoying the music, but was overwhelmed by the level of sheer invention in both the production of
the music and the writing of The Chameleon. His story is compelling reading, filled with imagination

the silver screen.”

“. . .To put it simply, Gene’s appearance was our BEST show this year! Our listeners called during
the show and for hours after we went off the air wanting to know how to get his book and his Cd’s.

his message of hope with music, storytelling and a guided meditation. In his ‘Follow Your

the best guided meditations ever.Not only that, he also gave the Sunday lesson, where he inspired
people with his heartfelt stories and later that afternoon set a new attendance record at
our church with his workshop ‘Follow Your Dreams’. I would definitely trust my congregation to him

stories, his quest and his music. I have spent the last 30 years in the music industry working with

pure pleasure. I love the man and I love that he is my friend.”

QUOTE FROM UNITED NATIONS HOPE 2000 CONFERENCE IN INDIA
One of the defining moments of Grace at the HOPE 2000 conference was
your personal testimonial and the philosophy of life and living that you shared with us on that day.
It touched many of the delegates and made it evident to all that the Higher power for all of us worked in many strange and beautiful ways, not neccessarily discernible in every day existence but in many concrete evidences over time.
Your music is mystical and I felt one with the Muse when I spent those magical hours
connecting with and through you with the super-conciousness which is our universal heritage and salvation.
May you continue to dazzle all and touch many more with your loving Spirit and concern.
It would be nice to have you over again in India-
God willing and God Bless

Letters to Gene Wall Cole and Awakening Imaginations
I just finished reading You May Be Right, but Consider This... by Gene Wall Cole. My initial reaction--- WOW---easily one of the most thought-provoking books I've ever read! It also inspired laughter so hard tears were running down my face!
- intelligent, but not heady
- well researched, but not tedious
- humorous, yet respectful
- very readable
- excellent conversational tone
- well organized into bite sized nuggets, yet tied together in a cohesive message on the current condition of our country and our world
- great cross disciplinary references and perspectives
- if marketed correctly, definitely a best seller which will have greatest impact on the concerned and confused masses, who know something is terribly wrong in our country and our world, but have no idea what it is or what to do about it
After Day 17 I wanted ten copies to give to friends in the world---after Day 27 I requested copies to give to all the executives at Cisco---by Day 39 I decided to create an approach where I could get it in the hands of our CEO personally, as Cisco's motto is, “changing the way the world works, lives, plays and learns” and Consider This… speaks to all four magnificently.

I have just finished “The Chameleon.” After reading your book, I will be a better mom & wife.
I have listened to “Angel of Pure Love” off the Chameleon CD so many times that my tape is going to wear out. That truly is the most beautiful song I have ever heard.

It is not very often that my husband will attend a seminar. He was deeply moved and I can already see where it is having a profound effect on our relationship. Enclosed is a donation to help you take your work to more people.
I'm writing to you now because you have been an important influence in my life. I am able to feel at a depth I once only imagined and I know much of the healing that has occurred is a direct result of your teachings.
I have been searching to change my life and find God's purpose for myself. You were the inspiration to help me find my path.

I just finished reading The Chameleon and every word resonated with me. What an incredible story. How can I get more copies to share? I'm going to write to Oprah.Com as you should be taking your work to the world. I feel so blessed to have experienced your workshop---it was truly amazing.
I want you to know what a HUGE impact your video workshop had on my son. He raves about you. I know a large part of his decision to move here and change his life was a result of your message.

Gene is insightful, spontaneous, authentic, joy filled and just plain inspiring. I hope you not only choose to experience him yourself but will help Gene launch his ministry throughout the world.

I believe Gene embodies the best of those on the spiritual path and that he is called to plant seeds throughout our spiritual communities and the world.

Gene's manner is light although his message is profound. I had been burnt out on workshops and almost decided to skip the afternoon even though I had invited Gene to be with us. Please hear me, I would not have missed this workshop for anything . I would offer to anyone who has the chance to see and hear Gene, run, don't walk and treat yourself to a powerful experience in healing.
Board President Toledo, Oh.
Having Gene Wall Cole as a presenter at our church was an exciting and invigorating experience. Gene is both challenging and humorous in presenting thought provoking concepts and his ability to generate a positive response seems almost mysterious.

Gene has an unusual depth of spiritual insight and artistic creativity. He is bright, high energy, fun and a wonder to behold.

Hello Gene and everyone at Awakening Imaginations
My name is Kristen Miller. We met approximately 6 months ago at my church in Ocoee FL. I'm writing to you now because I feel I can trust you, and that you have been an important influence in my life. During your workshop and concert at the church I felt a gentle yet significant shift within me. Shortly thereafter I broke up with my boyfriend, several important business opportunities were offered, and I found myself surrounded by many beautiful people whose love and friendship I am able to feel at a depth I once only imagined---I feel that these changes are a direct result of your teachings. Also my Dad and I mended a very old misunderstanding.
Much of the healing that has occurred in my life has something to do with you. I respect your work very much. I know your heart is a beautiful one, and that you POWERFULLY love and intend for those you minister to. Thank you Gene for reading this note and assisting in my healing. Please return to Florida soon. Your music, message and vibration is very much appreciated here. Blessings to all of you----keep up the good work.
Remember me? I attended your workshop in Chapel Hill last fall at The Center for Peace. Thank you, Gene, for encouraging me to follow my heart!!!! At the time I was getting an urge to live in a big house? I started visioning the house using techniques you suggested and even drawing floor plans. I couldn't drive by a house that was for sale or being built without stopping to go inside. I could FEEL a house coming to me. I didn't know how that could possibly happen financially, though. But I let God handle that part. Like you said the HOW was none of my business. Well, I just have this burning desire to write and tell you that I moved into the house on April 27! It's a townhouse, not a separate house. It's so beautiful that I had to keep pinching myself for the 1st few weeks. It's beyond my expectations. My private practice has started blooming, and I'm able to do that here, too. Anyway, thanks again for opening the door and showing me the way.
To everyone at Awakening Imaginations,
“I really enjoyed Gene Wall Cole's testimony. He was able to catch the Juvenile in-mates attention (which isn't an easy thing to do). He was able to show them that there is still hope.”
Jr.Chaplain, Orange County Jail , Orlando
Your inspiring music and presence last Sunday was a rare gift. I finished your engaging memoir last evening. I was compelled to read well past my bedtime until I finished! I empathized with much of your journey as I have been on a similar path. I am a registered nurse, mental health specialist and am completing graduate studies counseling/family therapy. I am writing to thank you for the workshop, which was a powerful experience. I am doing the homework and can already see concrete results---you make it so simple! Wishing you peace and success on your journey.
I just wanted to email you and tell you that I thoroughly enjoyed your book and love all three CD's. I was at the service and workshop at Unity Center of Tacoma... I loved your style of writing and your story is incredible. What an adventure! You have a gift for writing and your story made me want to know more... what happened with Princess Marigold? Will there be a sequel?
Seriously, I had several "breakthroughs" from your workshop and book. I compliment you on your work. Not only are you doing a fabulous job, but your beautiful spirit shines through. It is so important to share that with others. You are a unique and wonderful person with a special place in this world, and I have learned a lot from you. Hopefully sometime in the future you will again be in the Tacoma area.
Love and blessings,
Michele Angelique Millsap
