The Short Story
Shamanic Mentor and Energy Healing Practitioner, Host of
Soulful Living on Empower Radio
My own quest for personal success, contentment and peace of mind began when I was in my teens. My first job was with a local bank as an assistant to the President. Striving to do (and be) my best is one of my life tenets and begins with impeccable soul care - being "self-employed" - the job of taking care of ME first.
First on my list of soul care is eating to LIVE not living to eat. I practice for my health, for the planet, for the animals, for my soul. My food choices change as my body changes. One thing I can say is that my health has improved immensely and my spiritual practice has elevated to heights I never knew possible.
Led by my own intuitive process I have walked down many paths, taking more seminars, workshops and classes than I can possibly begin to list, with particular interest in metaphysics/mysticism, energy work and shamanic teachings, as well as the medicine woman. My entire life has included moments of deep connection with what I have come to call the unseen world.
30 years ago, while becoming clean and sober, I was introduced to meditation and energy healing, which led me on a quest to learn ways of including both in my life on a personal and professional basis. Along the way, I began experiencing shifts and intuitive hits. A mentor suggested I look into shamanic teachings. As I began to dig in, I realized I had been naturally walking the path of the shaman for as long as I could remember.
Shamanic practice is the oldest spiritual tradition – found as a basis for most religions. Almost every culture includes some history of a Shaman or medicine person.
What is a shaman? A Shaman is a person who interacts with both the physical (seen) and spiritual (unseen) world. Typically, they connect with benevolent spirits and guides to assist in healing, encouragement, answer seeking and ritual.
The shaman navigates between invisible and visible worlds (ordinary and non-ordinary reality) for healing, messages, tracking and soul work. They work for the highest good – restoring harmony to individuals, working environments, animals, communities and the planet.
The teachings I have learned solidified my beliefs that:
what we focus on multiplies and EVERYTHING is energy. How we flow through life depends on our own energy levels and connection to creation.
I like to think of my self as an "art teacher", tuning in, getting creative, on how my clients can take care of themselves. Every session with me includes a teaching of how you can incorporate some of my techniques into your own life to ease stress, pain, feelings of lack, emotional imbalance and more. These simple mindful techniques will transform the quality of your life, personally and professionally. You will begin your own practice of " the art of impeccable soul care" as you learn to honor this life and connect deeper with your soul.
Oh, did I mention drumming? I LOVE drumming; for my body, mind and soul; drumming for you, drumming for the planet - alone, in sessions and in circle. The sound of the drum is like the the first sound we hear in the womb, the heartbeat of our human mother and the heartbeat of the universe, the cosmos.
My choice for a good life is self employment - my job is taking care of me by focusing as much as possible on joy, peace, abundance, clarity, bliss and above all LOVE. My work is taking the best of what I've learned and share it with you in the hopes that you will find peace and feel empowered in healing your life on all levels, through practicing the art of impeccable soul care.
