At the age of 19, I read a book on the chakra system that changed my life.
The book was Anodea Judith’s The Wheels of Life and I began to understand the physics of our bio-energetic bodies and the deep connection each one of us has with our entire Universe. I read dozens of books on spirituality, Eastern Philosophy, and Metaphysics before I turned 20.
At the age of 23, I met my spiritual teacher, Mother Amma – a true enlightened being.
Then I began the practice of sadhana (spiritual practice) through meditation, chanting, yoga, reiki circles, deep philosophical reflection, and selfless service (seva). A year after meeting Amma, I moved from California to the Pacific NW and met my life partner. While working in what I call the 3D (third dimensional) world of Financial Services, I also extensively studied shamanism through a handful of amazing teachers, including Portland’s own Lightsong School of Shamanic Studies. In addition to core shamanic practical study, I studied Compassionate Depossession with Betsy Bergstrom and Soul Retrieval, Divination, Chod, Faery/Middle Earth work, Pyschopomp and channeling/merging with Dr. Mary Courtis.
Most of my true training came through life experience, peeling back my own layers of pain, and learning to fully surrender.
In 2004, my spirit child, Ameya Ananda was born and I left the 3D world of Financial Services for good. In 2006 I received my first and second USUI Reiki Attunement and a little over a year later became a Reiki Master. During this time, I was also emerged in deep, intense, on-going clearing work (which continues to this day) with two of my dear friends and mentors. To further enhance my skills as a healer, I attended a nearly year-long extensive course in Clinical Hypnotherapy and Neuro-Linguistic Programming and graduated as a Clinical Hypnotherapist in 2013. I am also a long standing member of Energetic Synthesis – a group of Indigo/Starseed and planetary grid workers around the world dedicated to bringing the Unity Architecture and Unity Logos into full manifestation on our planet.
My greatest joys and passions are my family, the beautiful island of Kauai (location of the 12th Planetary Stargate), being of service, writing, Ascension Mechanics, Mental Energy Dynamics, teaching others how to surrender, preservation of our dear planet, growing our own food, sunny days, sweet smelling flowers, Amma, my soul tribe, music that carries the living light code, sacred science, watching my daughter sleep, Breitenbush, loving on my old dog Lucy, boxing and Muay Thai (yes, there is a warrior in me) and so much more!
Assisting others in their healing process and assisting this planet in her evolution is my highest mission in which I am eternally grateful and honored.
