Author Biography

Hi there, thanks for stopping by.

My friends call me “JC.” I currently live in Southern California with my wife and two children. Let There Be Us is my first published book.

At some point in our lives, the time arrives when we ask ourselves, What am I doing here? Who am I? What is the meaning behind all this? Why keep going?

The time for asking these questions came early to me. Since I can remember, I’ve been engrossed by the need to understand life, myself, and others. I developed a keen interest in people, their activity, their feelings, and their thoughts. This unyielding curiosity eventually led to the recognition of causes hiding in plain sight, and the understanding of patterns that I may have confused with randomness or unfairness before.

Let There Be Us is meant for folks with similar interests to me. That seems to be a growing number—people seeking understanding and spiritual growth. If you are reading this, chances are you are one of these individuals. If so, I welcome you to my experiences. And I wish you, my fellow traveler, a pleasant trip into what’s at the core of your life; may you enjoy your journey into the self as much as I did. May you enter our new chapter.

Love,

JC Ramos Paulino

In this book, readers will understand the two kinds of consciousness they are exposed to and how to use them to connect to their life’s goal. Let There Be Us: A Journey into Yourself is an insightful book that is filled with lessons and tools for readers. I found it to be a useful tool for redesigning my life, one of the books I needed at this point in life.

JC Ramos Paulino also deftly uses examples to help break down complex ideas and unique perspectives into a more relatable context. Concepts of identity, self-awareness, prescience, growth, and reality follow a logical flow that engages the reader and makes them build upon the lessons gleaned from each previous chapter. Let There Be Us is a must-read for those looking to delve into their own identity and for those yearning for a guide on how they can grow into their true self and empower their actions to shape the environment and reality around them.

I have never read a book that has touched me in the way Let There Be Us has done. The explanations into the subconscious and conscious mind were so enlightening and helpful. The author has such a masterful way of using relatable stories and analogies that make everything so easy to understand and memorize. There are many exercises that will change your perception immediately, and my particular favorite was Halting Your Pseudo Time. The definition of self and how we must always grow to achieve our life's purpose was uplifting. Throughout this guide, I felt the dark clouds of uncertainty lifting, everything made sense and by implementing the techniques, I had a clear map of where to take my life.

Let There Be Us: A Journey into Yourself is detailed and exceptionally researched.

I loved the section on positive and negative reinforcement, the definition you place on success and failure, and when your conscious desire clashes with your subconscious beliefs. You will definitely see stress, obstacles, and your life in a new light. There are so many "aha" moments in this book, but the one that is now on my office noticeboard is this: "Identity guards the doors of your perception." The content was life-changing for me.
