5851“Life often has twists and turns, in which redirects the path and diverts us to another path on our Journey”!

I’m featured in Spiritual Niagara Spotlight (pp. 6-7), August 2015 issue.

Life is a journey! The earliest childhood memory I have, I was sitting on my bed, looking out the window up at the sky, the stars were so bright and I asked; why am I here? What is my purpose? The answer was; Dear Child, “You are on a great quest!
For many years I felt different, separate from others, never fitting in or feeling like I belonged on earth, and I struggled with addiction. Much of the time I felt that my emotions fluctuating, eventually realizing that I am an empath, and absorb other people’s energies; like it’s my own. Navigating all these energies sometimes left me depleted, scattered and emotional. When I realized the importance of grounding, releasing, and protecting my energies, that was a pivotal time in my life. The changes were paramount; life began to open up in mystical, magical ways. The light began to shine from my body and my dreams became reality. I always wanted to open my own business and it was like I had a guardian angel holding my hand and leading me on a path of unlimited possibilities.
Throughout my life, I was intrigued by human behavior and the effects on the physical body. My formal education was in the medical field, but I never followed that path because I had a different perspective on healing the body. Lessons in life have given me many experiences; I have been in situations interacting with doctors for my family members several times, and every time it led us to visits with a Neurologist. I find that western medicine deals with the symptoms, specific to a particular system, and not the body as a whole or to the root of the condition. The lessons that these experiences taught me have led me to research alternative holistic healing therapies. I believe that treating the body as one whole system and balancing our mental, emotional, physical and spiritual bodies are imperative.
While I was in College studying Medical Record Technician with the goal of continuing my education to become a Surgical Nurse, a life-altering event happened. This event was so traumatic to me that I lost my way for a while, I was drifting. I always knew that I wanted to help individuals in the area of health and wellness, never understood the capacity of my greatest potential and my life’s purpose until years later. I graduated and never went into the medical field because I didn’t trust doctors.
The event that left me drifting was my “Mother passed away”, 1985. Recalling this event gives me a great understanding of my life’s purpose. I didn’t realize it at the time, I thought it was normal during the grieving process, but it continued for years. From the time my Mother passed away and even still today, I can connect with those in Spirit. I truly never thought of myself as a medium and I had never gone to a psychic or medium until 2012. I talked to my Mother every day when I had questions she would drop the answers in my head. It helped me come to grips with her death.
In 2002, I found myself focused on the importance of my feet. Working in an industry where I was constantly on my feet, I noticed how the high and low energies correlated to the way my feet felt! What did this all mean? The electrical connection of our feet and hands to earth energies and the world around us have a great effect on our performance in our daily routine. It is important to pay attention to our feet and hands; they are the miracle parts of our body. Our hands and feet house tens of 1000’s of nerve endings. The feet and hands are designed to give us feedback from the brain in milliseconds.
I am a Reflexologist and Reiki Master. With a passion for people and a thirst for knowledge, I continually educate myself to find ways to teach individuals how to honor and respect themselves and in turn, this will assist them to create a way to balance their physical body, so they are able to enjoy peace and serenity.
The philosophy that I live by is Authenticity!! Living in my own Truth! My feet planted firmly on the ground, centered in my heart and emanating *Love* to All. Love is the most powerful healing energy. I am here to communicate that, as each and every person deserves to feel, loved and belong on earth. My mission is to honor and respect everyone and assist individuals with the realization that love is an important part of their individual journey.
I have been creatively combining traditional sessions for an ultimate unique experience. Many people have been inspired by my teachings, Under the Oak Tree. My quest in this life is to serve humanity and get to the root of each individuals journey to unlock their “Limitless Potential”. My experience in the service industry and education in the medical field has given me a unique ability to relate to clients needs and share my wisdom to help them evolve.

Listening to your feet is important!
