Hello, this is David Delmar, your host of SuperPower Creatives, and you’re listening to our episode, Music and Mental Consciousness. I believe everyone is a creator and it’s this inherent birthright that’s the source of our superpowers. Stepping into this personal authority is scary though. This show celebrates creatives that stay true to who they really are, making a living using their creative superpowers. The stories they share will excite and inspire listeners to do the same, making positive change in the world.
I’m very exciting and most definitely looking forward to talking with our guest for today’s show. He’s a light source of pure illumination for taking a fearless and bold stand for his truths, and essentially, our own truths as people of this planet. His music is not only on a high level of goodness for how great it is musically speaking, but it is on a whole other level to which is a path only he can blaze like the way he does. TruthSeekah is a hip-hop artist whose knowledge about esoteric and spiritual subjects are infused throughout the medium of music and lyricism.
In his music, TruthSeekah pioneers a new sound with rhythmic, mystic hip-hop beats. His music is the embodiment of his own spiritual encounters and supernatural experiences. TruthSeekah has been influenced by the work of Manly P. Hall and has been inspired by greats like Jordan Maxwell, Santos Bonacci, and Michael Tsarion who have also endorsed his music. The influence he has experienced from these spiritual and esoteric authorities and many others is apparent throughout the lyrics, as well as the meanings of science and symbols. TruthSeekah’s message is of light, love, and over-standing. TruthSeekah, hello man. Thanks so much for being here today.
Thanks for having me on, David.
You’re very welcome, you’re very welcome. Also, just a big thanks to the transcendent and creative outreach your movement provides presence to in an ever-shifting matrix of half-truths and powerfully created factory to uncover how it’s stealing away people’s purpose and love’s potential to heal the wounded hearts of the collective.
So you’re standing up in a very big way for sure. Today we’re talking about our show, Music and Mental Consciousness. To be more specific, what TruthSeekah feels about using mental consciousness as he experiences it, to communicate that awareness and inform through his music.
So we’ll get into answering that question. But first we’re going to ask this question, TruthSeekah. It’s probably an obvious one, but here it is. What is your creative superpower?
Being a creator.
That’s definitely mine. I think you put it in a very beautiful way, and it’s just been on my heart a lot lately, is just to understand that we are made in the image and likeness of a creator, a god, an intelligent being. And I think the highest form of worship is when we step into our roles as creator and we create something too. That pretty much no matter what it is, that it didn’t exist until we breathed the breath of life into it.
In my case, it may be a song, it may be a video, it may be a podcast. Something that didn’t exist until we breathed the breath of life into it. So I feel like that’s the highest form of worship and honor and adoration, back to the life essence, god, whatever we want to call it, that place which we’ve come for as being made in the image and likeness of that creator.
So I’ve been stuck on that lately, and just in awe of it. When you create something, you bring it to the table, something that never existed. It’s magical, it’s really beautiful. So for me, it’s creating music and podcasts and videos, anything that has to do with creativity, and thinking outside the box of mystical, paranormal, spiritual encounters, and trying to articulate that through art. I think it’s beautiful.
It is beautiful. And particularly, as an artist, the way you do your creating and as a creator, it is beautiful and I love, from what I’ve seen of your content, it’s just so artistic in the sense of the quality and the attention and the obvious awareness that goes into the detail of it. It’s really impressive and inspiring for sure, as a fellow creator.
I want to ask you this, TruthSeekah. What got you started? Where were your beginnings with music and how did that all come to be for you in the early parts of you knowing that you’re here to be a creator, to create things, to create that magic for yourself and for other people. What was the beginning of that like?
Just always being a fan of music, super fan of music. Knowing that putting on that music can take you to another place, almost like watching a movie. You can have an encounter by listening to music. If you’re in a situation that you don’t like, and I grew up with a pretty hard lifestyle, coming from a broken home. So music was my escape, I got to journey to different places through music and experience different cultures through my music.
Just early on, just being head over heels for music, being my place of escape. I remember one time I brought my cd collection to school, I was in high school. I brought my cd collection to school, it was in my bookbag, and the principal found it, we wasn’t supposed to have that at school. And he took it, and I was in front of everybody. I started crying in front of everybody, because this was my escape. And it felt like they were taking it. It was like 150 cds. They took it, and I remember crying there in front of people, and I’m trying to hold back tears.
It was like, it’s just an object, you can get it back. But there’s a connection there for me. Just being so much in love with music and with the escape of music, and then understanding the spiritual aspects of it, growing up, getting into Christianity and understanding worship music, and going to church services and seeing people worshiping God and being almost translated to another place even when the music’s playing, and seeing the power and the effect that music has over people, in positive and negative ways as well.
So being head over heels for music, I’ve always been moving towards that area, whether it’s been playing in bands or trying to write my own songs. And you start out and you just want to do it, you don’t know where to start. Pretty much, just writing a lot of songs and getting better and better at opening up, at sharing out those thoughts, creating ideas, and getting better at songwriting over the years. That’s when I just knew that it was going to be a part of my life and I wanted more than anything to create music and play on stages and things.
Well, it’s so beautifully articulated. I’m curious, the church and Christianity and God, it is the core to everything, because we are in the image of the creator which is God. But how did you decide that you wanted to make that a focal point of your music, and in particular the way your music is communicated with your own unique style, when was it-
Because you get started in music and you think it’s gotta be- a lot of people, I experienced it, it’s like, it’s gotta be a certain way, it’s gotta be this way or that way to be commercial or to be successful.
But you’ve clearly said that for you, it’s important that you speak about a God and you speak about the presence that has in your life. When did you decide that was how you wanted to express your art?
Yeah, so when I really got to a place where I was gonna start working on music, I was a Christian at the time. So pretty much, if you’re gonna be a psalmist, or just be honest about your music and using it as an outlet, you’re gonna sing about or write about the things that you’re going through.
So the early stuff came as someone who’d just come out of a lifestyle of gang activity and drug use and things like that, coming out of that, and getting into church. So my music reflected what I was a part of at the time. So it just came naturally with the territory. But it also began to evolve as well, as I began to get into politics a little bit, and look up conspiracy theories and Illuminati. These lyrics kept coming and I kept finding rhyming schemes. So there was a bit of a disconnect early on as the music started to evolve a little bit with my studies and my experiences.
So I went through this thing, like okay, do I just continue to do what’s working at the time? I was traveling to large churches that would have me out to tell my story and do music. But I felt like if I didn’t write about the stuff that I was interested in, the stuff that moved me at the time, which was politics for a while, and conspiracies, that I would be selling myself short.
And I think to be honest with myself, with the fans and with God essentially, that whatever you’re going through, to be able to write about that is being an outlet. So it went from Christian rap, and I did that for some years. And it got a little bit political, and then the spirituality started coming into it a lot more as I began to have more encounters and study other material. So that stuff started coming out of my music as well. UFOs, aliens, meditation, those type of things.
So I seen it shift over the years, but it’s all about just being honest wherever you are, creating that music.
I love that. I find that so, so impressive and so valuable as an artist, to see someone that is just so connected to that part of themselves, where there’s no inhibition, it’s all about being real and being authentic and just expressing what it is, where your interest is at the moment, and I really love that and I celebrate that for sure, man.
I’m curious, what type of fans, what type of audiences are attracted to your music?
It’s a wide range now, because like I said, I come from the Christian background, so there’s still those fans who are diehard supporters and fans. I talk about my faith in my music as well, so that’s still there. It’s maybe transformed over the albums, and it sounds a little bit more intricate and a little bit more detailed as any relationship evolves.
So that’s why I do still have a large Christian fan base. But then as far as the spirituality, I think that’s universal. I think the spirituality can transcend religion, so if people are into Christianity, or people are into Islam or Hinduism, or lack of religion by any means and they’re just into spiritual practice, I kinda pull from all those people and I can be open and honest with who I am as a person, my doubts, my questions, and things like that, being open, authentic, and vulnerable has paid off.
Once I’ve been okay with who I am, with all of that stuff, versus religion, you gotta pretend like you have it all figured out. But being open, it’s almost, you don’t want to be vulnerable because you’re open for attack, you’re open for ridicule, things like that.
But as I begin to do that, I begin to see things open up for me and people be able to relate to me more versus I’m just this big artist or teacher, whatever the case is, through music. I’ve been able to see my fan base grow, and it’s a real eclectic following. It’s really weird sometimes, because I’m into philosophy, I’m into Christianity, I’m into Hinduism, I study everything. If it works, it works for me. I think that all life is beautiful.
So if I was to share some of that stuff in my music or maybe even a Facebook post or a tweet or something, you have some of those people who are still in a certain religion or they believe a certain type of way, and the fan base is so eclectic at this point, you can’t please everybody. So you have to just really put out what resonates with you and what your beliefs are and what you hold true to, and the people who are supposed to come, the people who are supposed to partake and eat from your plate, are gonna show up and just believe that.
And that’s what it’s been. But it’s been constant growth and elevation over the years, and now that I’m doing it full-time it’s just going insane, man. I’m really elated and just blown away at the reach and how much people are supporting and following my work now.
Well, I can feel it from you too. It’s definitely a good vibe to receive on the other side of the airwaves if you will. Very awesome stuff, we need to take a quick break. I want to explore further with TruthSeekah into the full testimony he’s offering and how listeners can expand their knowledge about the world and raise their own vibration for understanding what the world is meaning for them.
But before we do jump into a break, let’s tell people where they can find out more about you.

We’re gonna take a quick break and when we come back, we’re gonna continue with TruthSeekah on our high vibratory travels into these universal truths and let you out there find new understanding through all this shared knowledge.
