Describe one of the most soul-opening moments of your life. I met my higher self face to face. We had a conversation and this is a soul opening experience the size of this universe. I also have out-of-body experiences, remote traveling, just being me always attached to my body for now.

When do you feel your most soulful? Playing drums, dancing, laughing, being with friends, performing, being with family, being in class at school—my entire life so far has been a continuous evolution and soul opening journey. Playing my drums encompasses almost everything for me in this life.

Tell us about a deep soul connection that you’ve experienced. I have a deep connection to one: my higher self, my Earth Heart and my soulmate experience of being with me. I am the creator of my experience and the connection to one LoVe. I feel connected; I am my soul and have a body to experience, play with. The limitations of my existence are doors that I can open, enter or exit; the magnitude of my experience is universal.

Where in the world have you felt the most in touch with your own soul? When I am traveling to any new land or place, like being here on Earth, is in many ways a place that I feel very much myself/Soul... When one goes to a new land, one becomes more conscious of one's self. Our Mother Earth has a very special atmosphere that is different in each region of the world I have been. Each place has one common factor: Planet Earth. I LoVe to be alive on Gaia: mind, body and Me.

Who are the most soulful people you’ve ever known? Some of the most soulful people I've ever met are most of my friends and family. To some degree, the entire world of people and everything inside its biosphere is one big Soulful existence. We are truly blessed to be on this planet now. Meeting other people is always a soul opening experience if it feels good and we're open to connecting. Interaction with complete strangers can be incredibly intense—people you meet only once in life and are with you forever more...

What qualities does a soulful relationship have? Honesty, health, authenticity, friendship, peace, adventure and Live one LoVe. There is only LoVe and LoVe is all around us.

What do you feel your soul’s purpose is? My purpose here on Earth is to experience challenges and dreams that will set me free. To share with those near me all the LoVe that my Earth Heart can broadcast, across the oceans, around the globe and out to space. In this life I came here to celebrate and LoVe. Every moment is our creation. The universe is alive, my heart is pumping strong frequencies of Life, Peace and LoVe.

Marcello says of his sculpture at right, "This is the product of a soul opening experience. I started with a block of white porcelain and some water and after 90 minutes, a Soulmate Sculpture was created."
