Book Interview with Stephen Altair
Interview with Stephen Altair by Maria Bakera
“Be still and know that I am God.” (Psalm 46:10)
These words sum up how Stephen Altair feels about his life’s journey. He has been through quite a few challenges, and the book “Diary of a Yogi” is a diary of the accounts in his life.

Maria: “What would be the most important thing you want people to know about your book?”
Stephen: “It is based on my life and starts with dreams I had as a child where I saw myself as a monk. The book is ultimately about using ancient knowledge and scriptures from sacred traditions to open yourself up, cure dissatisfaction, and connect with others. The message is one of self-empowerment – you are in charge of your healing – and it endeavors to show you the beauty in everything around you.”
I enjoyed speaking with Stephen about his book. He is a humble man who cares about helping others. If you’re interested in learning about different religions, this is a great book to read because it’s about his spiritual adventure.
When he was 2-3 years old, he started having a repetitive nightmare that occurred every night for a year. His family sent him to countless doctors and no one could understand what is happening or what caused it.
This was the beginning of his quest. From swimming with dolphins to seeing extra-terrestrial experiences this book is filled with unbelievable stories that don’t seem real, but are what Stephen saw and heard.
From learning about deliverance using Jesus’ name to finding out he had a past life this man has experienced it all and has used his knowledge to help people.
Stephen: “In terms of your life purpose, when you’re really extended in love and you really do connect with God and the way God has come through in different religions for me is a really powerful kind of connecting and binding force for people. I mean people who really love Jesus really love Jesus. People who love Buddha really love Buddha. People who love Mohammed really love Mohammed.
And that love if you can meet people on that level, it gives them a hope, deeper sense of purpose and lots of wonderful miracles happen from that point. If you go back to the real, I call them foundation, I think there’s a foundation and there’s a path, and there’s kind of an outcome. But the real purpose that we’re looking for is this inner purpose of knowing who we are and how we’re connected to the universe and what makes our heart sing.”
Stephen Altair has written 9 books and is collaborating with Kevin Schoeninger for the next part of “Diary of a Yogi” called “Hidden Treasure.” If you’d like to learn more about him and get his book Stephen’s website is.
As Stephen would say, “No matter what is happening to you, pause, stop, be still and listen. Self-empowerment comes from knowing that the beauty and power and presence of God or Love is within you and in everything around you.”
