is a “Soul Retrieval” and when would this be performed?
A Soul Retrieval is performed if the client has experienced
a “splintering of the soul” through shock, trauma, abuse,
rape, divorce, death, an auto accident, or other life-changing events.
In Shaman’s terms, we believe that through this trauma, actual
soul parts have been lost and that until they are reclaimed, one is
not able to function effectively.
the image on your web site, you are surrounded by animals—an owl,
a buffalo, an eagle, a leopard, and a pipe.
What do these represent?
animals in the artwork are some of the power animals
that I work with when I Journey and do Soul Retrievals. They are quite
sacred in healing work. The pipe is a representation of the Native American
pipe that was given to me when I first started my work. I use the pipe
in ceremonies as well as in individual healings when I am led to do
a Shaman, do you see visions or symbols when you are in trance? Do you
speak with spirits?
When I Journey I go into an altered state and meet with my power animals.
I state my intention for the Journey, and ask for their assistance in
gathering the information that is needed. Many times they assist me
through visualizations….other times they speak directly to me.
Your work embodies Native American influences.
Does it also include Celtic practices and spiritual practices from other
belief systems as well?
My primary focus is on Native and South American (Andean) Shamanic Healing
practices. I also encompass traditions from Celtic and Egyptian studies
as part of my Priestess path. In that capacity, I work with the elements
(earth, air, fire, water), in order to bring about more balance between
the masculine and feminine energies on the planet.
What experiences led you to the life you
live now as a Shaman.
Growing up, I attended a Southern Baptist Church, but I never felt connection
to their dogma. It never resonated in either my mind or heart as truth.
So, in my quest for a more meaningful spiritual experience, I explored
alternate paths and spiritual practices. My exploration began many years
ago when I had a powerful vision of ascending on the wings of an eagle,
and being flown very high up to another plane. There I saw a very beautiful
Native American woman dressed in white buckskin. It was not long after
this that I attended a conference that promoted various avenues of studies,
and attended my first Andean Shamanic Session. It was a very powerful
experience and intuitively I knew this was the right path. I studied
with this teacher for a year, and then felt called to work with the
Native American ways. It was during this course of studies that I was
gifted a pipe by a Native American woman, and was instructed in its
use. My studies went forward from there…each level nourishing
What is a Sacred Spirit Journey?
Sacred Spirit Journeys are the soul-enriching experiences that we discover
every time we journey into ourselves. Journeying is a beautiful, rich
process, which connects you with Creator every time you enter this altered
state of being. The answers that come through for each of us are sacred,
because it is this divine truth that we hold in each of our bodies.
Can a person participate in this type
of work from any location, including over the phone?
Journeying can be done alone once the process is learned. I first work
with clients creating a sacred space to help them with processing the
information. Once explained, they can continue working in that sacred
space or where ever they are connected to spirit.
What sort of healings have your clients
I have worked with clients on many different levels. I conduct Power
Animal Retrievals where I have intuitively connected with the
symbolic animals reclaiming a client’s personal power. These animals
continue to work with them on many different levels and many different
issues. I see the most dramatic shifts occur when I perform Soul Retrievals
for clients. Eyes actually change after the completion of the soul retrieval...the
light is actually restored back into their eyes!
I also do a lot of work with the Mesa in the Andean
tradition. The Mesa actually helps open and cleanse the chakra system...helping
any fears to be released through the Mesa, and they are then returned
back into the earth to be transformed in to positive light energy.
I also use my pipe for healing when I am led to do so, which is performed
with the spiritual presence of White Buffalo Calf Woman, one of my spirit
Do you officiate at marriage ceremonies?
Yes, I do. The marriages are quite special, as they encompasses Native
Are there other types of ceremonies/circles that you perform
for groups or privately?
Yes, I conduct drumming circles, as well as sacred Pipe Ceremonies.
I also perform house clearings (to clear any negative or heavy energies
that may exist in the home), as well as house blessings (which are good
to do when you first move into a new home.) Structures hold negative
energies the same way that people do, so this energy must be transformed
for a healthy, balanced living environment.
I am also available to create other special ceremonies based on an individual’s
desires or needs.
How do you determine the best healing
technique for someone?
When I meet with a clients, I ask them about what is going on in their
lives. Then, intuitively I ask what that person needs. Many times it
will be a combination of several things that I am led to do for them.
What is your favorite aspect of this type
Being able to see the healing shift which occurs within the person.
It is not always immediate, but when they leave the session, it is usually
quite visible that something has started to heal within them. A person
must WANT to be healed, for the healing to occur. If they don’t
want the healing, their body will reject it...this is true for healing
on all levels.
How do I schedule a session?
To schedule a session, you can either send me an email or call me so
we connect on a personal level and discuss your specific needs
What are some ways to find and keep centered?
When I work with someone, I give them information on how to stay grounded,
rooted and protected each and every day; and, when they are stressed,
how to find calmness and peace in the center of the storm.
It often takes different tools to find your power and to keep centered
in it. We need to meditate daily so that we can achieve and retain peace.
The world is swirling at such an accelerated pace, that it is difficult
just to maintain ourselves…without breaking apart. Much of my
work centers around settling this energy.
I step forward at this time to assist, to calm, to awaken, and to help
reclaim personal power. I embrace this work with clarity of vision and
with the strength which channels through me from Creator. AHO!
