I am a mystic. As far back as I can remember, I have had direct encounters with the Divine, effortlessly accessing spiritual energies that exist outside what most of us consciously perceive. These enduring experiences have influenced who I am and how I navigate the world.
Rich with beauty and flawless guidance, a mystic path is predictably solitary. The truly psychic and mystic souls I have encountered through the years know this well. I have always lived with a deep need to share what I see and experience and an intense fear of doing so. It is clumsy, if not impossible, to use words to describe that which exists outside our five senses. Not only is information imparted with vacuous gaps, it is often received with skepticism and fear.
Fortunately, the dynamic is changing – and rapidly. As our collective consciousness continues to rise, a heightened spiritual vibration is in play. I continue to see a new enlightenment pervading even the most resistant hearts and minds.
My journey has been a lifelong search for context and tribal camaraderie. I have traveled to many parts of the world and spent time in every corner of the United States. Along the way I have met hundreds of individuals of every persuasion; and it has been my passion! In my unquenchable thirst for knowledge I have availed myself of constant study and a search for true teachers and luminaries … I find that there is smattering of wheat among the endless shafts.
For more than three decades I have practiced meditation and yoga, first discovered in the early 80s at the Iyengar Institute in my then home San Francisco. In 1990, I discovered the world of energy medicine and Reiki through brilliant teachers Barbara Brennan and William Rand. I had an immediate aptitude for hands on healing! It was exhilarating to know that energetically I could directly communicate what I could not do with simple words. While I have been a full Usui Reiki Master since 2005, my work with divine energy healing is increasingly expansive. I use a variety of therapeutic approaches, including the determination of astrological influences and karmic patterns to ease blockages and restore wellbeing. My passion for soul astrology continues to grow! I am under apprenticeship to two gifted teachers, and a member of the Organization of Professional Astrologers. I look forward to offering personal astrological readings in early 2018.
I was organically led to study the histories of religions to help integrate the recurring mystical experiences in my life. I needed to interpret the voice of my soul as much as to find common context to share with others. In two years of official formation in Spiritual Direction, I discovered a deep connection with ancient wisdom and spiritual prophets who walked the earth hundreds, sometimes thousands, of years ago. I became a modest expert on most of the world’s major religions and a certified (non-traditional and interfaith) Spiritual Director.
In 2012, I moved to Chicago to begin working for the Council for a Parliament of the World’s Religions and become fully absorbed in the international interfaith movement. The Parliament’s renowned leaders – of many diverse faiths – allowed me to experience first-hand the cultural foundations of our widely different religious expressions and traditions.
I completed two levels of study through the Celebrant Institute and Foundation where I earned designation as an official Certified Life-Cycle Celebrant® – with a specialization in weddings.
I delight in having an ever-increasing tome of mystical experiences along with a library full of tales, epiphanies, ascensions and adventures from the years I spent traveling and leading tours around the globe.
It is only in recent years that I have fully become comfortable to own and express who I authentically am. I am an energy channel. In the human body that is mine, I am a soul aware of living in many dimensions simultaneously. I am a being of light, love and vision. I am you and part of who we all are together, equal glowing threads of magnificence in the all-encompassing vibrating fabric that is God. Most aptly put by the late great Dr. Wayne Dyer, I Am.
Please see my (coming soon) vlog entries on the Heartbeats page of this site if you are interested to know more about my mystical and psychic experiences and what I see. There I will have videos posted as I continue to overcome my fears and follow what I can only describe as my Divine Mandate: to share my experiences and to lovingly and candidly convey even a small fraction of the beauty I see existing for us all.
