Jesus and David Bowie carried equal weight in my family growing up.
I spent half of my childhood hanging around my dad’s used record & books store. His passion for and knowledge of music, books and movies are woven into my DNA.
My mom’s gift of hands-on healing and the prophetic messages she received for family & friends were biz as usual. She’s been my guide since my first mystical experience when I was eleven.
This is probably why I’m just as likely to be found reading a Laini Taylor novel, binge watching The OA, or freaking out over a Grimes album as I am to be teaching people their Enneagram patterns, mapping life path archetypes, or giving an energy healing session.
My husband teases that I’m a modern mystic.
I think there are a lot of modern mystics out there and the number is growing. Somewhere along the line, we stopped compartmentalizing “normal” life and “mystical” life and allowed for their natural merging. We crave Cosmic Flow and Divine Influence as a constant, ever-glowing lamp that lights the way, day by day, hour by hour–sometimes minute by minute when times are tough. And we’re looking to connect and exchange stories with others who crave this too.
A little of my story:
In a past life, I lived in NYC where I worked in documentary television and was immersed in the late 90’s music scene, which led to making an indie music documentary (a tribute to Jeff Buckley) with one of my best friends.
My grand plan was to make documentaries and tell stories, but then my husband got a job offer in Silicon Valley. And I got really sick.
Relocating to the San Francisco Bay Area was fate. Western medicine had failed to diagnose my mysterious symptoms, and I was thrust into a brave new world of holistic healing, shamanistic experiences and deep excavation of myself.
Life led me to the perfect mentors and healers. Over time, I rewired bone-deep conditioning that kept me in an unconscious loop of perfectionism, self-hatred and phobias. (Root causes of an immune system gone haywire, btw.)
The Oracles of Delphi knew their shit when they said: Know Thyself.
My life took another turn in 2012 when I had what some call a Kundalini opening. This triggered heightened perceptual doorways (but was a terrible shock to my nervous system). I’d already undergone some pretty radical paradigm shifts, but I’d never walked between the worlds.
As they say, seeing is believing. These other-worldly adventures motivated me to study energy medicine and the human vibrational system. I learned how our personal vibrational field is always intermingling with other fields, intimately connecting us not only to each other, but the planet, everything on it, the universe, other dimensions of life, and finally to home base — Source, The Force, God, Spirit…The Mystery.
I’ve come to believe that all of us, without exception, can perceive vibrational information or what ancient mystics called the Unseen Worlds, and what modern mystics call subtle energy patterns.
Phenomena labeled as SUPERnatural is simply… natural. (Paranormal is the new normal, bitches!)
Unlocking our dormant extra-sensory abilities is a critical part of a shift that is rocking our world right now. We’ll either evolve into human 2.0 or we’ll lack the intuitive capabilitees to navigate reality-shattering challenges coming down the pipeline.
I know that if this stuff is happening to me, it’s happening to A LOT of people out there. And if this sounds like the script for an X-Men movie, well, yeah. Our storytellers are the antennae for potential versions of our future!
Recently, a series of signs & synchronicities inspired my husband Peter and I to pull up our roots and answer the sweet, but scary call of the wild unknown. Right now we’re living between two locations — Ojai, California and the north shore of Kauai, the oldest Hawaiian island.
As the mysterious reasons for our relocation unfolds — and the shift of ages ripples through all of our lives — Once & Future is where I’ll be sharing what’s moving through my little world.
This might be messages coming through during my morning meditation….. or a documentary about a mind-blowing animal communicator…. Beyoncé slaying a cover of my fave Prince song….. my obsession with wild crafted essential oils …. a brilliant novel that kept me up way past my bedtime…. or a dreamy album enchanting my ear buds.
Stuff like that.
My hope is that you will find confirmations, synchronicities, and activations that connect to your own mystical journey 🙂
