Since arriving in Idaho my life experiences have soared to new heights, my gifts have accelerated and my skills are growing as a healer. I’ve arrived, having stepped into my power. My mentor Lindsey has given me the most amazing opportunity to become her assistant and help in restructuring her business which will be so useful in growing my own.
I won’t be able to write as many new posts here so instead I’m being guided to repost all of the poems I’ve written this year in a plain format, allowing the words in each message to speak loudly for themselves. My mission is always to inspire hope, spread love and kindness. “Triumphing over Trauma” marches on.
In light and in shadow, always with love. Namaste 🙏

My dear readers the bright and illuminating light of love is shining brightly upon me here in my new home. This brilliance delivers with it the promise of hope, faith and an invitation to trust in Divine Spirit. Reclaiming my authentic spirit has brought me to a place of immense inner peace and I’m being guided to share this message with the world because it’s available to us all. All that is required is a sincere leap of faith.
Arriving to this place is a practice of making and keeping small promises with myself. Nothing happens overnight or in my idea of time because truly time and space is an illusion just as the feeling of being alone is for we are never alone. God’s love is readily available and is given freely at all times because it is burning inside of all of us constantly. The Universe is constantly supporting us without question. Be still, tap in and BAM….fill your spirit up with as much as you desire. We can and do heal my dears.
Realigning myself to this natural balance through shamanic healing as gotten my creative juices flowing again as they were in the beginning of this year. I’m feeling the itch of words constructed by my spirit guides and angels much more often. As I stated in my last post, 2020 is a return to perfect vision which is delivered to us all by the cosmos 🌌
The 5th of the month has played a very significant role in both May and September of this year for me. The number 5 is usually considered to be a symbol of goodness and grace of God. God has always been very good toward humans. May 5th I departed Dallas, where I had resided with my paryner for 3 years. Initially, we didn’t expect to be apart for this long and the extended time has created a lot of stress on both of us. All I can do is trust that God will reunite us soon. I sure have learned a lot in his absence from my daily life and I know in the end it’ll all be worth it. Last month, on September 5th I traveled here to Idaho for the first time ever to meet my teacher and hold the shamanic ritual ceremony for my induction into the world as a shaman. Today being October 5th, I feel something else special will unfold. I pulled a few tarot cards from The Wild Root and John Holland’s Psychic Oracle deck that foretold of such beginnings too. In order to stay on track and usher in these blessings, I must remain positive and open❤
Let’s say it together my dears, today I choose to inhale love and exhale fear. Raise your vibe and live the life of your dreams! In light and in shadow. Namaste 🙏

A few months back I took part in a powerful workshop my dear friend Chrissy was offering on recognizing the key values that drive each of us. It’s no surprise to me that mine overlap with those in my natal chart, the houses in which they reside in have a direct relationship with my soul embodiment. My happiness and contentment rely upon the three core values of peace, joy and most especially love❤
I’ve been in Idaho for exactly one week and my heart is so happy my dear readers! Today marks the beginning of a new month. We aren’t starting slow this month either while we have a powerful Harvest Full Moon to kick things off in combination with Mars in retrograde squared with Saturn. Energy levels are sluggish yet as with every moon cycle, we are being asked to release what no longer serves us. For those of us healing and doing the inner work to evolve into more loving beings this time is a celebration! Some us however are really struggling with what we’ve been resistant to let our white knuckle grip off of. For me, I’m basking in the glow of the rapid and transformational changes I was able to make (with the tremendous support of my mentor, teacher and soul sister Lindsey) that have freed my soul and allowed me to expand, embrace and fully step into my power in the most empowering of ways.
Tonight, she and I along with a dear friend of hers will hold a full moon ritual. This ceremony will set an intention to release and burn away what we no longer need to keep in our lives that doesn’t serve our highest good. We will also create new intentions to manifest over the new cycle we’re welcoming in. Taking part in these types of rituals feels amazing on many levels and is an honor to celebrate our sisterhood connection. The Universe offers us this gift once a month my dears and this one in particular is divinely timed with my move here to Idaho.
In the past week, my creative juices have begun flowing again and my heart has connected to its home. I can feel myself in a much more powerful way my dears. It’s thrilling to be able to finally be released from the toxic relationships that were holding me back and became nothing but a huge distraction over this year. 2020 is often referred to as a return to perfect vision and I can clearly see how hard my heart and soul have been struggling for many, many years being held back by people that didn’t have my best interests in mind. I’ve often written here that my mindset has shifted away from intellectualism into a much more authentic space which allows my heart to be the driving force in every decision. My arms are open wide to all the new possibilities my new home offers🙌
In order to make deep and lasting shifts take hold, in our life we must forgive. This is an intentional practice that not only includes extending forgiveness to others my dears but most especially with ourselves. We simply don’t know the harm we cause in our own relationship with self until we wake up to see the destructive patterns that have developed within our being that have taken us away from our purpose until we do. Our life here is centered in love, for ourselves first and then pours directly into the lives we touch. It’s a huge interconnected web that includes ALL living things. People, animals and nature. Once the pain which caused the fear in the first place can be recognized and healed, love can and does flow strongly and abundantly 💗
Ahhhhh, deep breath in my dears…..hold….exhale fear and replace it with love. I now call in my highest self which operates in accordance with the love vibration and Universal flow. If you’re curious about how to create these shifts in your own life, hit the link below to schedule a shamanic healing session with me or a tarot card reading. I hold both in person and long distance sessions over the phone. This link will also connect you to my three books of poetry. Until next time my lovely dear readers, heal yourself with love and then love others freely🌈
My dear readers, what a transformational month September has turned out to be for me. In this post I want to briefly share what’s been happening to me since taking on my role as a shaman. I’ve written previously about how this entire journey back to myself began ten years ago in 2010 yet rapidly accelerated itself 15 months ago when I unearthed my deepest traumatic wound, being sexually molested as a child. That led me to find my teacher Lindsey and the magic of shamanic healing which propelled me into this homecoming of taking the role of a shamanic healer myself. This work is what I was created for and is the biggest accomplishment in my life.
In my last post I revealed that I was moving to Idaho to join my teacher and dear sister Lindsey Luna so we could combine our forces of magic facilitating a broader reach for our healing businesses and learn from each other more closely. I’ve accepted every challenge with gratitude because I follow my intuition these days which has led me to uncover my true and authentic self. I’m finally free and upon returning to my parents house after my week in Idaho, the pain came on quickly as realized that I no longer belonged there. The toxicity of dysfunction is repulsive to me now that I’ve healed. It didn’t take long for me to make the necessary arrangements to get here and I’m happy to announce that I’ve officially moved to Idaho 🏞
When I look over my steps this year, 2020 has been the most transformational time of my life. Yes, it’s been confusing and extremely painful yet also immensely beautiful and awe inspiringly magical. My dears, embracing the pain of the human experience has taught me to lean into the fear and alchemize it into love. Following the breadcrumbs of my heart, my feelings are how I’ve uncovered my truth. It’s been lying dormant underneath dysfunctional programming and conditioning that taught me to dissociate and not feel my own feelings for thirty-seven years. That held me back from my destiny and joy! Stepping back into my sensibilities has awakened in me my soul’s purpose. This weekend I have the privilege of giving back to Lindsey what she so lovingly gave to me upon our first shamanic healing session together in June of 2019. In innumerable ways, she saved me by clearing out energetically what was keeping me stuck and blocked from my heart. Our hearts contain the superpower which is love. There are two vibrations, fear and love….every other feeling is an offshoot of the two. It was through self love that I became my own hero and saved myself from the deep despair my life seemed to be on the inside.
Now that I’ve finally dusted off the years of trauma, polished my heart by making my self care priority number one, I’m find myself in the position to graciously give back to Lindsey by helping her heal in the shamanic way. This weekend we are embarking on a camping trip (my 1st since 2007!) together in order to fully focus on the shifts to her own self integration. The ceremony we held together that inducted me into the world as an official shaman has created many new awakenings for her. This healing is an exchange of energy, hugely beneficial to both parties. My dears, the cycle of healing is never-ending as is the breathing we do to live. Once you can accept both, the resistance eases and inner peace can be restored. Shamanic healing is deeply profound and is a game changer for what keeps you stuck. Trust me. I wouldn’t be “Triumphing over Trauma” by overcoming the many obstacles 2020 has presented to me like joblessness, twice relocating without my beloved partner while I completed my coursework and apprenticeship and self published two books of poetry. The proof is in tbe pudding they say😉
I like to look back at my writing and the poems I create because mostly they are channeled messages from my spiritual guides and angels. I originally wrote this poem, “I hope” in early April. After reading it again, I felt or I should say my guides felt it was in need of a republication. My dears, hope is available in abundance from the Creator. God offers us a chance to constantly try again, an endless amount of do-overs. Take a chance on yourselves. My favorite acronym for hope is Hold On Pain Ends. I’m living proof my dears and so are YOU💗

Tomorrow I will be traveling to Idaho to perform a final ritual ceremony for my dear sister friend and teacher Lindsey Luna. This will mark the ending of my apprenticeship and the beginning of my role as a shamanic healer. This journey has been my focus over the last fifteen months but more specifically the past five. I’ve learned so much from Lindsey, about myself and healing. I’m bursting with excitement as I feel major shifts happening inside me.
It started last weekend with an overall sense of calm, a more feminine yin vibe that I wrote about in my last post. Everything feels slowed down, natural, not forced or requiring me to exert much energy. I’m an extremely energetic person yet this past week feels like I’m moving through a pool of jello. It’s hard to really describe but this poem is my attempt at articulating my internal story💙
I haven’t been publishing a lot of my writing on any of my online platforms because I’ve been focused on writing for my ceremony and also spending more time with my personal journaling. It’s extremely important for me to process and express myself right now. I’ve spent this week with myself, in solitude and silence with nature as my backdrop. The lake I live on provides so much stimulation for my spirit to thrive in. A new mantra came to me the other day in meditation and I want to share it here.
“I receive light, I give love”❤
This is what I recite to myself during my own personal healing sessions and the ones I hold for clients. It’s simple yet powerful as I envision myself as the conduit for both declarations. I think it’ll serve as a muse for my next painting😉
When we can slow down and go inside ourselves, our truth is revealed. We connect with our own spirit and soul essense ever guided through God. The feeling both during and afterwards is so relaxing and freeing. Even if you do this for 5 minutes everyday my dear readers, I urge you to go there. Give yourself to yourself and to your higher power, whomever that is for you. I don’t subscribe to any one religion. I prefer to acknowledge all the ascended masters who walked this Earth from every established religion and interpretation of God. I read all literary offerings from the Bible to the Koran. I’m blessed to have been gifted my dear Nana’s leather-bound Bible after she passed, complete with her writings and observations on each chapter and the verses she liked. It still smells like her too which I love❤
I’ve been rewatching “The Power of Myth” which is a series of interviews Bill Moyers had with Joseph Campbell. I was first turned onto his teachings while I was a sophomore in high school and my Humanities teacher assigned us his book to read. I have always felt drawn to mythology and its teachings. As Mr. Campbell says, “the absolute mystery of life, what he called transcendent reality, cannot be captured directly in words or images. Symbols and mythic metaphors on the other hand point outside themselves and into that reality”. Myths point us in the direction towards our own truths. I love to explore different cultures and myths weaving my own beliefs to the surface.
I took this picture in my favorite park the other day and attached one of Campbell’s great quotes to it 💚🌱
These are two other poems I’ve written this week that reflect where I’m at in my journey. I feel these are very representative of my inner world and my soul. I won’t be posting next week so I can be fully present on my trip. I will definitely fill you in my dear readers once I return and have processed everything 😊
