Ever since I was little, there was something different about me.
I've come to find out there's a little bit of what makes me feel different in everybody I meet
As a young child, I was always entertaining people with my theatrics. However, what I never felt the adults in my life could tell from my bubbly outward impression was that I had a profound awareness of the connection between all living beings that I struggled to understand and reckon with.
I was raised Christian in a variety of denominations from Catholic to Protestant. I was sent away to Jesus Camp during a few summers in elementary school where camp counselors would re-enact the crucifixion on stage every Wednesday and then encourage the frightened young campers to accept Jesus Christ as their lord and personal savior immediately.
Suffice to say, my introduction to spirituality was a bit traumatic. I felt a lot of shame for my “sins” and spent many nights praying to Jesus to absolve them. This, I believe, was the first presentation of my anxiety and depression, which I've dealt with throughout my life. I never felt good enough to be present with the Lord. I always felt there was something about me that was wrong and that I would have to change before I could be loved by God.
At the age of 11, I decided that Jesus was a make-believe friend for lonely and scared adults and that he wasn’t doing anything for me. I denounced Christianity and became agnostic for many years. During that time, I studied many different religions and found a strong connection to a few including Buddhism, Hinduism, Taoism and Celtic Mysticism. However, none of them felt completely “right” and I remained without a label or a funnel for my spirituality for many years. All I knew for sure was that every person was an extension of a singular divine consciousness that I call God or the Universe, and that individuals have the power to shape reality with their intention.
Around 2014, like many millennials, I became fascinated with the Occult, mainly in the form of the crystals, tarot imagery and witchiness that had become so trendy at that time. I finally googled “paganism” and was shocked by how exactly pagan beliefs lined up with the beliefs I thought I had gotten from nowhere. At that point, I became instantly passionate about learning everything I could about witchcraft. I didn’t know at the time that the focus of witchcraft (for me and the people I learn from, at least) would be healing and empowerment, but that is where my journey took me.
Today, I am proud to say that I am a professional tarot reader, Reiki Master-Teacher and spiritual coach for a growing group of clients. I am also extremely proud to say that I have learned how to manage my own anxiety and depression as well as my ability to manifest (that’s what most people are referring to when they say “cast a spell”). I have even been able to develop a new, very loving relationship with Jesus and Mother Mary that is wholesome and shame-free.
I have walked a long winding road, read many books, spoken to many wise people and taken many classes to get to the point that I am at, and I’m always learning more. It is my pleasure and a gift to share with you what I’ve learned so that you can arrive at your own healing. I believe that the world we live in today is going through a massive healing crisis as we collectively shed thousands of years of religious and capitalist trauma so that we can enter the New Age of Aquarius in the year 2100, which is rapidly approaching.
Therefore, I believe that it is everybody’s individual responsibility to heal their own trauma. Everybody needs healing and everybody deserves healing. Making a commitment to your own healing is one of the most potent forms of activism, because healing is the process of taking your power back from the destructive hands of our current, very sick society.
If you feel drawn to this gift of healing, please contact me via email or on any of my social media platforms or go ahead and purchase a tarot reading, reiki session, or spiritual coaching session with me and we can get started right away. The only place to start your healing journey is at the beginning, and I’ll meet you there.
