So Who Am I? Love, Light, and a Whole Lotta Sass, that’s who!
Let me just say, for starters, I wasn’t born with an inclination for spiritual work. I was also always a pretty introverted, sensitive kid, never feeling like I fit in and definitely not like anyone else around me, which I later came to realize the reason for that sensitivity- some underdeveloped gifts….among other things. In my later years, I would go for an intuitive reading every now and then and would get told the same two things: I was meant to work for myself and I would be helping and healing other people. At that time, I thought well, they’re half-right.
I was a makeup artist for the majority of my professional life with little gigs here and there in production and public relations. During that time, my personal spiritual practice was growing, due to my ever-evolving curiosity of metaphysics and the unknown. I was also struggling with some long-term health issues. Nothing serious, but stuff western medicine kept telling me there were no cures for, and keeping me in the mindset that I would forever be a victim of my own body. It got to a point where that answer and way of life was simply unacceptable to me, leading me to ditch all my meds, and then try every other form of holistic healing to no avail. What the hell was going on in my body? Why didn’t it want to be my friend? Fast forward a couple more years to everyone and their mother (it seemed) talking about something called Reiki. At this point, I basically said screw this, I’m healing myself!
