Life is what you make it

I’d like to start this post by recognizing that there is indeed too much pain and suffering in our world. The pandemic we have endured for most of 2020 is nowhere near being efficiently managed in my country and our election remains unresolved as far as the current powers that be are concerned. All of that aside, life is full of choices and real change starts with numero uno. YOU. For goodness sakes, turn off the damn television and concentrate on how you can make yourself a better human being than you were yesterday. My dear readers, I’m being blunt here for emphasis. Change starts within ourselves. Nobody is coming to save you. Learning how to love oneself and practicing self care are the first steps in creating real change. Be the change you want to see in the world. It all starts with self. Stop thinking you can change or control anyone else. No matter what else is going on, only you can take the best care of you. Your job is you. Period.

Now that I got that off my chest, I want to share with you all that my 4th book of poetry, “My Soul’s Light” is available now on Amazon via the link I share at the bottom of each of my posts. I’m extremely proud of it, this is my masterpiece (so far) and my prayer is that its messages of love and kindness spread far and wide. Alchemizing the wide spread fear, hate and evil deeds done all over our world is where love conquers. These poems highlight my belief that only love will change our world. Love is the answer.

If you’ve been following me for awhile, you’re aware of the challenges that I’ve overcome. Severe trauma, abuse, suicide attempts, hospitalizations, homelessness, divorce and estrangement from my children…none of my life has been easy yet I never allowed it to turn me bitter. In fact, it served as an initiation to where I find myself today as a healer. It took hard work, determination, picking myself off the floor and deciding to never quit on myself. Abolishing any victim mentality and negative mindsets in order to be my own hero. Researching my own treatments, studying whatever I could, experimenting with different medications and therapies but most of all following my own intuition. My soul has compelled me to keep going, following my authentic spirit and never allowing someone else to make the important decisions in concern of my health. I tried everything I could to find wellness. Living with the light of love I embody now is a choice. I wasn’t going to rest until I achieved my own inner peace.

I vow to keep on transforming and healing. That’s our job here in life too. I’m strict about my self care routine and my boundaries. If others pushback, that tells me that they don’t have my best interests at heart and I keep going. I’ve completely changed my life and a lot of people and places didn’t make the cut. It takes a lot of courage to transform. Not everybody will be ok with your awakening my dears. Do it anyway. Trust me. Choose you, choose life!

In order to promote the poems in the book and relive the poetry slam moments of this year, I’ve been recording myself reciting many of them. All of these poems are special to me and are 100% powered by love.

Divine Reverence
Transformation

I’m so blessed and grateful to Divine timing. I came back home to South Florida in time to help my parents. My Dad who is 87 and fell last week is now in a rehab facility. We also learned that he has Alzheimer’s disease. I’ve conducted two very profoundly transformative healing sessions with my Mom that are helping her prepare for what’s inevitably to come. At 76 years old, she’s having a spiritual awakening and it’s beautiful to witness. My parents have been married for 45 years and are a testament to the power of love and commitment. My Dad provided an amazing life for us. My siblings and I were given the world and it’s my opportunity now to give back to them. I’m working on my Dad remotely to prepare his soul and ease the transition he is undergoing. My dears, life is short and oh so stunningly beautiful and precious. Treat each day like the gift it is. For love’s sake.

Spread love today, not tomorrow

Welcoming “My Soul’s Light”

I’ve been busy building the manuscript and have almost finished with the editing process for my fourth labor of love, a book of poetry with the most amount of poems in it that I have ever published. These 75 offerings were all written between June and late October of 2020 for my latest book, “My Soul’s Light”. I’m extremely proud of them. My poems are like my children and I have created careful tender loving moments in birthing them.

The ones chosen for this book are mostly channeled from the holy trinity of Archangels Gabriel, Michael and Raphael. It’s only in the editing process that I understand their depth. I humbly and honorably serve as the conduit, the messenger for Spirit or Divine, whichever you choose to call it. As a medium I am picking up on the nuances in the intetactions between people and nature. I’m drawn to intense energy like a moth to a flame and to make sense out of it all, my mind processes in metaphors and rhymes.

I shared a video of me reciting “Soul Strings” for my Instagram account along with a brief description of what inspired it. This poem explains what it feels like to be a shaman while in a trance during a healing session. As a dancer and an artist, I look at this energetic exchange as a dance with Spirit fueled by God. Such a humbling honor to use my many psychic abilities as the tools that help others to heal.

A grand dance with Spirit
“Soul Strings”

My goal is to have this done before my 43rd birthday next month. I will be announcing the official release soon. I’ve spent so much time working diligently all year on integrating my soul since its awakening in June 2019. Now I help others awakened their souls during the shamanic healing sessions I hold. I’ve come full circle my dears.

The heartbeat of a nation

I awoke suddenly from a sound sleep early Saturday morning at 4 AM. I could feel the tides of change in the air, a drop in pressure from the collective. I remained quiet and still while this poem evolved from the thoughts about how much power words hold and how in the past 4 years we have seen a drastic change in their meaning and placement. An outright battle for truth and facts. I’m not just referring to the political landscape but also the online social media one. It seems so many are quick to react, attack and behave aggressively towards absolute strangers. My partner and I nicknamed these types of people “keyboard gangsters”. I pray so often for the decency I once knew to return to humanity. I pray the next 4 years are a time of healing, not only in my country but world wide.

Words matter

In the past few weeks, as the pressure cooker turned our society here in the U.S. temperature to a boiling degree becauseoftheelection, I often found myself telling others that no matter who was elected President, it wouldn’t change the way I myself showed up in the world. I will still be a kind and loving person in my daily interactions with others. Change starts from within, then spills out from oneself to every other living creature we encounter. If more of us understood this, we’d be less concerned with who is controlling “us” and more concerned with the control we actually govern, within ourselves.

I often write about the trauma I have endured and survived throughout my life. I’m a huge fan of hope and the acronym for it…Hold On Pain Ends. My motto is, “Triumphing over Trauma” and I feel now is one of those times to remind myself and you my dear readers to always keep hope alive in your heart. Everything in life is so temporary. There’s always tomorrow.

Hold On Pain Ends

I’ve been back home here in Southern Florida aka SoFlo for 4 days now. It feels really good to be back despite the dreary weather we’re having with tropical storm Eta’s heavy rain and wind. I am so thankful for what I’ve learned over the past 2 months since becoming a shaman. I’m fully committed to my practices and rituals. It was an absolute honor to finally work on my Mom who was simply amazed by her session. I learned a lot of advanced techniques that helped me to become the master I now stand as. I’ve risen to a new height of understanding how powerful and magical I truly am. Knowing and understanding my purpose like never before feels fantastic. I know November and December will be abundantly successful for me as I embark on new adventures. I can feel the 7 month odyssey of separation my partner and I have been on is nearing its close. I accept what has occurred for it has served a great purpose in my growth this year both personally and professionally. I release the pain of the past and am grateful to the experiences for the many lessons I learned. As a fire sign, a Sagittarius, I often have to put my hand on the hot stove top and get burned to truly learn. That’s how I’ve always been. Mistakes are how we learn and I chose to keep it movin forward my friends!

Accept and release

What is a shaman: Celebrating my ancestors and soul work

I was recently blessed by having the opportunity to work on a fellow shaman sister who has trained under the teachings of Lindsey Luna, my shamanic healing teacher extraordinaire at her Soul Healing Academy. Spirit presents itself in such interesting ways in each session and I’m continually learning something about myself along with my clients. New ancestors show up and different guides make an appearance with messages from the great beyond. All in an effort to realign whomever it is I’m working with for their healing and highest good.

I’m a true artist at heart and I love to incorporate different percussion instruments in my sessions like Tibetan finger cymbals, drums, wood chimes, a singing bowl and my favorite energy shifting tool is my African rattle. I find myself speaking in different languages, mostly phrases I’m getting from Spirit that I either speak or sing. I like to chant and of course clap, stomp and dance. I intuitively chose different crystals to use on my clients along with essential oils that I use to evoke intentional healing on different levels depending on what we’re healing.

A question I often get is, what is a shaman and what do they do? The following description is from an article called “Mythology for Smart People” and then another example I pulled from a different source, they are in two excerpts:

“Shamanism can be considered to be the practice of entering an ecstatic trance state in order to contact spirits and/or travel through spiritual worlds with the intention of accomplishing some specific purpose”

The following is from another shaman I follow named Elizabeth Clemants and her website “Planning Change”. Her explanation is so on point:

“A treatment with a shaman has been called “ten years of therapy in one session,” and can be a powerful way to free oneself from repeating unproductive patterns.

What is a shaman?

Shaman are practitioners of traditional medicine methods that have been passed down by indigenous peoples for millennia. Shaman believe that all “problems” –whether physical or emotional–have a source in energy. The job of the shaman is to locate that energy lying at a problem’s source in any individual and shift it, causing the symptoms of the problem to shift as well.  

A shaman believe that each of us have a soul that has lived many lifetimes, and that this particular lifetime has a unique purpose and agenda. Determining one’s individual path in this life is aided by clarity and lightness; many of us are short of these qualities. Shaman watch and listen to an individual at ever-deepening layers until they identify the energy that needs attention; the shaman then works to remove heavy energy, add light, and shift the balance of a person’s system. This process can bring about healing at a foundational level.

 Why go to a shaman?

There are many reasons to go to a shaman: emotional depression, anxiety, long-lasting periods of grief, anger, a sense of dread. Physical symptoms such as insomnia, recurring nightmares, sudden weight changes, addiction, or disease (especially stress-related illnesses or unexplained physical pain) are also problems one might bring to a shaman session.

The cause of these problems may be obvious, such as a response to some sort of trauma. Distress emanating from relationship-based issues like divorce, infidelity, toxic family or work relationships, even the inability to get pregnant are also clear sources of pain. All of these can often be helped by a shaman.

But often the reasons for felt pain are unknown to the sufferers. Many who seek out a shaman shoulder a simple but overwhelming sense of just being “stuck,” with something unseen blocking movement forward. It is up to the shaman to find this energy source, setting into motion the shift necessary to alter problematic symptoms”.

I have lived an unconventional life my dears. It’s taken me 42 years to uncover my soul’s purpose. The other day while in meditation, God told me the work I’ve accomplished in the past 16 months is enough for 8 lifetimes. I recently broke a karmic contract from a past life thus freeing my spirit to ascend to new heights. I’ve reached master status now which is an extremely humbling honor. I will be returning to Florida knowing that even though I’m not meant to stay in Idaho right now, my time spent here has been incredibly enlightening and chock full of insightful lessons. This is such important work and I’m blessed to be able to perform it on others.

I originally first came here to Idaho on September 5th and will be returning to Florida on November 5th. I’ve done things that I wouldn’t have dreamt of in August. That’s the excitement of living a heart centered life while allowing my soul to be the driving force in my work. This poem sums it up perfectly.

My soul’s purpose

I took a video of myself reciting it too:

“Here to Heal”

My message is to be yourself my dears. That is your special brand of magic and only you can share it with the world. Love yourself fully and then spread that love to others. Allow yourself to be held in God’s grace.

God’s grace is as always goodness

Strengthening my roots

This has been another extremely transformative week for me here in my new home in Idaho. The combination of the cosmic alignment aka Mercury in retrograde during Scorpio season paints the perfect landscape for a shamanic healing experience. The Universe is drawing out deep wounds, coping patterns that no longer serve and giving us the astrological salve to truly heal. I told a client of mine this week, healing can and does hurt. The power of change is only possible when the pain of living the same way becomes too great. Otherwise we wouldn’t do it! Also, it’s a lifelong pursuit that never ends. The pain doesn’t last for long however, as everything in life is temporary and the benefits far outweigh the negatives. It’s all in perspective my dears.

Stop and look around yourself

I began the week transplanting four of my chakra points including my root, sacral, solar plexus and throat. Then I performed a much needed energy upgrade. Shamanic healing is spiritual surgery my loves and is made possible by my intentions and powerful love force magic aided by Spirit and my ancestors. My body feels like new again, fresh clean energy fills every cell and fiber tissue of my being so that I can continue to walk my path, gaining so many new and exciting insights along the way. Everything is energy my dears. Emotions are just energy in motion and you would be amazed at how pulling out icky, sticky old stagnant energy bound into chords and blocks helps rejuvenate the body! It’s profound work that gets to the root of everything that ails us as human beings here. The body was perfectly constructed to heal itself yet all the crap we surround ourselves with, consume and digest through interactions with others and what we choose to put into our mouths greatly affects how we feel and therefore dictates how we respond or react to absolutely EVERYTHING!

The 7 main chakra points

My mission here is clear, to keep “Triumphing over Trauma” and as you my dear readers can tell by reading my posts here these past two years, I have lived a life entrenched in trauma and pain, carrying many mental health diagnoses(mainly it’s all CPTSD) yet today because of the art of shamanism, my outlook on life has done a 180. The zest I feel for life is immeasurable and the beauty I witness in all of God’s handiwork brings tears of joy to my eyes and injects my heart with so much love on a daily basis. I can feel myself completely and I’m operating on my pure soul’s spirit ✨

One can really see changes in their life once they start to appreciate and be grateful for the pain they experience. The flow of everything keeps on allowing for more acceptance and a greater embrace for what life presents us in any given moment. I have written here that my mission is clear, to graciously and with a grateful heart, help do my part in healing humanity one heart at a time. Imagine if every single one of us committed to doing that too? I created a hash tag for it….. #fightofthelight and I vow with the new book I’m writing the manuscript for now to boldly do just that. “My Soul’s Light” is a labor of love and through my poems express the unwavering love God has for each and everyone of us.

Mother Earth is crying out to us, can you hear her?

At times throughout my day, I take a moment to listen and tune in. While in these moments of silence, often times I am overwhelmed by feelings of loneliness yet I know I am never truly alone because I have God’s unconditional love within me, guiding me along my path. I’m reminded to keep going even if I should stumble, to speak my truth even if my voice starts to crack. Nothing can ever hold me back. I am the master of my emotions and I choose to alchemize the energy around me to aid others in discovering and uncovering their own light. That is God’s greatest gift to us, the light of love 💖

Humans are so resilient my dears and I’m living proof that we can and do overcome experiences that have the potential, in our minds to break our spirit. I refuse to believe anyone of us could ever truly be broken. The soul is a burning cavity of purity and love that can never be destroyed (energy never dies) and it’s through the magic of love that all is overcome. How is change created and where to start…..Ask yourself these questions…..

How much do I love myself and the people I choose to interact with? How much toxic crap do I allow into my system through other’s words and the food I ingest? Do I realize it’s ALL a choice and only I have the power to change it? Am I just mindlessly consuming?

My prayer

Right now on the planet, the world is watching the United States because of its global superpower status in the world and the election about to take place in less than two weeks time. I take my citizenship and right to vote extremely seriously because others laid down their life to give it to me. I also know that no matter the outcome, whomever gets elected, won’t change my own heart or how I choose to show up in the world. We are one and I choose to treat myself and others with as much love as possible. THAT my dears is what fuels long and lasting change. Peace, joy and love isn’t a new concept. The wise among us have written novels about it, given impactful speeches on it and sang about it for centuries. John Lennon immediately comes to mind here.

I beg of you, take the time to listen to your own heart and show yourself the love you are lacking so that you can express these values through yourself and your own life. That directly impacts everyone around you and pours into more people, so on and so on. Get it? Change starts on an individual level. Give yourself the opportunity to heal. Express love. One person can make a difference. It’s simply in our roots.
