related to plenty of things that were said in the Bible.
But still, his spiritual thirst was "not satisfied."
He studied jiu-jitsu and began meditation, which was "all I needed
to do in the first place," he said.
While in middle school, Campbell even dipped into Wicca, an
earth-based, nature-centered religion. American Wicca University says
is it is built around the use of positive thought and action and love
of nature to create an atmosphere of positive energies that are then
used for our own benefits.
"I think it is a beautiful, misunderstood religion," Campbell
said. "What Wicca got me in touch with was the balance of my

the past, what is possible in the future, things like that.
"Sometimes I see colors, which we call a person's 'aura.' It's
pretty cool when it happens."
