As a highly sensitive empath, I've always been attuned to unseen forces & higher states of consciousness, but "shut off" my psychic gifts at around 11 years old due to the fact that I had no one to talk to about my communication with passed loved ones, as well as the frightening amounts of out-of-body experiences I endured as a child.
I always tried to fit in throughout middle & high school, often making choices that went against what I intuitively knew to be true, which led me to years of depression & loneliness.
Years into adulthood, in late 2016, I found myself in a tumultuous relationship, a job I absolutely hated, addiction and alcohol dependency, until one day I thought to myself "there's gotta be more to life than this". Once I woke up to the volatile reality I had created for myself, I knew it was time to set out on a quest of seeking truth and clarity.
Not long into my awakening, I began working with a Non Dual Kabbalistic Healer who helped me uncover childhood wounding that played a significant role in how I was experiencing life as an adult. As my path to healing unfolded, I spent much of my time in nature connecting with the earth elements and my higher self. Through independent studies and following my intuition, I was divinely guided to discover the perfect resources at just the right time to further my growth and expansion.
In November 2017, I quit my soul-sucking job, flew out to California five days later & attended a retreat in Joshua Tree, where I met & formed deep connections with like hearted souls from all walks of life. I hadn't realized it at the time, but listening to my intuition & creating a catalyst for such a big change in my life was a huge turning point on my spiritual journey. One of the instructors, Jennifer Sodini, taught a series of workshops, assisting us in unlocking our psychic abilities through a series of ancient techniques. On our third day there, just hours after visiting the Integratron for a sound healing, Jenn & I were paired up to practice 20 minutes of eye gazing.
Sitting on a Mexican blanket behind a random sofa in the hot desert sun, I kept asking internally "who are you?". Minutes into our practice, Jenn's eyes began to turn into a hazy grayish blue, a set of eyes I've seen many times before. Once I moved through the resistance of needing to understand what I was experiencing & just focused on my breath, it was in that moment I realized I had just made contact with my grandmother for the first time in over 8 years since her passing. As the 20 minutes came to a close, Jenn asked "so tell me what did you experience?" I said "I'm not quite sure if I did this right, but for some reason I saw my grandma's eyes in yours". Jenn instantly burst into tears & said "I didn't want you to think that I was summoning spirits, but the entire time we locked eyes, I kept hearing grandmother". She then went on to tell me all about my childhood, life as a teenager, an adult & how I always felt like I was perceived by everyone around me. That was the very day, life as I once knew it, changed forever.
Upon returning home, my thirst for knowledge was at a record high, which led me to exploring moon magic, esoteric arts & the occult. At the start of 2018, I created a solid daily routine consisting of yoga, meditation, journaling & ecstatic dance, which helped me to cultivate discipline, confidence & the energetic bandwidth that was needed in order to take my healing journey to the next level. Throughout my journey I've worked with many teachers, mentors & healers, collecting knowledge & wisdom from all corners of the world. Over the course of two years I healed decades of shame, guilt, fear & unresolved traumas & emotions that I had carried with me since birth.
In the latter half of 2018 & early 2019, I practiced the art of letting go & released myself of everything that no longer served my highest path. As soon as I created energetic space in my life, I sensed a deep calling toward understanding & utilizing my intuitive abilities. And just as the Universe always provides, I was led to Gifted Experts where I received my certificate as a clairvoyant & channel for Spirit.
Fast forward to 2020, my best friend, Bianca Johnson & I, have now facilitated 2 Embodying Your True Essence retreats, helping women to heal & release old traumas, emotions, karmic patterns & limiting beliefs, assisting them in creating more aligned & happier lives for themselves.
This past January I also hosted an Intuition & Psychic Abilities retreat, to help women understand & unlock their gifts, assisting them in trusting in their deep inner knowing & experiencing more divinely guided lives.
I now understand fully that I was put here on this earth to help others from having to go through the same struggles I've had to face & having to learn everything the hard way. I know without a shadow of a doubt my purpose is to help raise higher consciousness on our planet by spreading every bit of knowledge and wisdom I've collected thus far along my path.
