Those of us who aren’t interested in traveling the well-trodden trails of the masses are often seen as a mystery to those who do. Anyone looking to upgrade and reform their life from the inside out knows that the way is seldom clear. In fact, in most cases, one is certain of nothing but the ground on which she is standing in any given moment. Such is the journey of one who knows there is more to life than what meets the eye. Those of us with fiery spirits and rebel hearts bristle at the thought of dying with our inner magic untapped, knowing we are capable of so much more. Our purpose is to rise to that which shines brightest within us and become masters of our lives.
Some of us are here to be living examples, expressing our true potential as humans. In so doing, others see what is possible for them, as well. We may not know the details of how it will happen or the exact destination, but we have heard the call and trust that we are well on our way to living the extraordinary life we came to claim.

This is not a ‘one size fits all’ world. Human beings are wired to be unique. The better we know ourselves, the more we realize that what works for others does not and will not ever work for us. You are here to express something specific by way of your Presence and Creative Self Expression. All the wisdom tools in the world are no replacement for self awareness and conscious interaction with your environment.
As the famous quote from Goethe says, As soon as you trust yourself, you will know how to live. Trust is an inside job. It develops over time and comes from life experience and awareness. The better we know ourselves, the more easily we can find our way.
I was rewriting the About page of this site, today, again… Why is it so difficult to say what I do in my work with clients? Maybe because each session truly is unique. I show up never really knowing what we will be covering or where it will take us. I have learned to do this over many years. I used to have a pretty heavy and specific agenda for how a reading was supposed to look and sound. People are more complicated than that, though. Some need a lot of information. Some just need to be seen and heard. Others are undergoing a challenging life transition and are looking for tools to help them get through it.
When I show up with my heart open and willing to assist in the way that is of greatest service to the client, amazing things can happen. We have space in which to explore the most valuable direction to go in our time together. Breakthroughs occur; sometimes breakdowns happen, that open the emotional floodgates to reveal answers they could not see before.
I have had some excellent readings in my time, from gifted psychics and healers. The ones that served me best went at the speed and intensity I was ready for and offered information I could use. It took me a long time to get to the point where I had the experience and information I needed, to trust myself. And it was well worth everything it took to get here.
Developing a relationship with the inner self opens the doors to a much richer and rewarding life. Trust begins to occur, organically, once we establish that connection.
Today I open to possibilities
And entertain the ones that shine
Today I willingly speak my truth
And release the dreams that aren’t mine
Today I trust my instincts
And follow the inner signs
Today I open my heart and mind
And revel in a breath at a time
Today I dare to love what I love
And leave the rest behind
