Journey: As a child I had a draw to things like witches, magic, fortune tellers, crystal ball readers, palmistry, ghosts and anything fantasy-based (fairies, unicorns, all things sparkly). I always had a bit of a “knowing”, and was definitely a very empathic child. Beginning around the age of 7, I recognized that I was experiencing what I referred to as “sympathy pains” for people in my life, which I now understand to be the psychic sense of clairsentience. At the age of 8 years old, I first saw a dark ball of energy I now know to be a “shadow person”. As an adult, I moved into a human services career and worked with people who were struggling in one form or another: abuse, socio-economic issues, in crisis and/or required intervention. During my interaction with them, somehow I just “knew” things that I had no reason to know as they had never shared these things with me and it was beyond what I was “taught”. I also had some experiences where I was physically touched by unseen energies. These experiences definitely caught my attention, but like so many people I dismissed so much of what I experienced. I am a prime example that you can be incredibly psychic, but not really have any clue.
Growth: There was a series of paranormal events happening in my home, and it was greatly affecting myself and my family. I knew what was happening was real even though there was no logic to the situation. I could not look at my kids and tell them that their experiences were in their imagination any longer. I turned to an intuitive for guidance and understanding, and then signed up for a class. I learned tools that helped me so much that I wanted more and immediately registered for Mediumship Training. I never thought “I must be psychic”, nor did I go into this wanting to learn or validate that I have “abilities”: I was more looking for an understanding and to develop a dialogue to support my kids. This was the driving force for me to search for answers and understanding of all that is not seen with the physical eyes.
I gained the knowledge and awareness to help my kids without creating more fear, but rather, with an understanding as to what was happening energetically. I learned to ground, clear energy, and protect. I am blessed that I learned basic skills early on and appreciate having these essential skills first before moving into other experiences where I learned to trust more about what I was intuiting. My biggest gain was truly that I learned so much about myself...the ‘REAL ME’, who I was struggling to find.
I had a lot of different jobs in the human services/crisis care field, but never really felt fully satisfied or at peace working for others. As I grew in my spirituality I found there were so many people who felt misunderstood from systems that were supposed to support them.. Although, I felt pushed to finish my social work degree, I also knew I needed to be self-employed and not be confined by limitations of working for someone else. I wanted to work with clients in a meaningful way, to support them to truly know themselves, to create change in their own lives, and to connect on a deep human level. I needed to create a career where I had opportunity to do just that. I decided to not finish my degree but to continue to grow my skills and abilities, and to build my clientele. I love expanding my offerings from one on one readings/healing sessions to groups and classes for all ages. Once I allowed myself to be guided to what was right for me and to trust the Universe, there was no stopping me. This path moved me to Medicine Hat where I began working at Nirvana 101 in addition to travelling to other cities to offer readings and classes, and my what an adventure it is has been so far! I am so very thankful for the self-awareness, growth, learning, community, and connections I have gained through following this path.
Service: My Intuitive Readings are a blend of Psychic and Mediumship abilities. So many people now are dealing with traumas and patterns that do not serve them so I assist them in confronting and healing the shadow self. I offer spiritual and life guidance, energetic/body scanning, and messages of health and wellness. I can connect with life elements pertaining to the past, present, and future. Life-purpose and balance, relationship guidance, energetic self-care teachings, past-lives, and paranormal experiences are all elements that can be explored within readings, in addition to anything else you choose to explore.
In a world where people are not always willing to show you who they are, I consider it an honor that people are so gracious and vulnerable in trusting me with their energy and the most personal aspects of their lives. My clients are truly my greatest teachers, as working in the energy of others is where I find my growth. I am so thankful for each and every magical soul I have the honor to work with, and for the souls who make up my Nirvana 101 family.
