A short story of my awakening journey!

    Most of my life was about survival, so I really didn't have the time to learn or understand myself on a deeper level. But I have always had an interest in esoteric pursuits and philosophy. When I did have time, I read many books on medicine, intuition, philosophy and psychology, traditional medicine, herbology, and much more.

    Deep inside of my mind, or I can say now, in my subconsciousness, I KNEW that if I am still alive after all the hardships I faced, I must have a purpose for being here, and this purpose is very important! This subconscious thought has bugged me for SO long.


     My awakening journey strongly started in 2010. Step by step I began to understand things that happened in my life, analyzing and accepting them as an experience and lessons. I've got to go through a self-healing process by forgiving, letting go, changing my belief programs, learning my own shadows, and more. I have had many different jobs in my life, I was "searching" for true myself. I am an artistic and creative person, and I've so many interests, and alternative (Traditional) medicine has been one of them.

     In October 2017 I took a course in Holistic Iridology. This course literately opened my eyes and gave me a different perspective on my life, and life in general. I discovered that our thoughts, emotions, and feelings are "generators" within us, which affect the creation of our own lives.

WE are the ones in control of our emotions, and WE are the "artists" and creators of our own lives. And yet, everything "bad" that has happened in our lives was just another experience, and lesson.  I have learned from my lessons, and it helped me to understand my abusive childhood. I've got to go through a self-healing process by forgiving, letting go, changing my belief programs, learning my own shadows, and more. I have NO regrades, NO blames, NO guilt, and NO shame for what I've done in my life. It's a wonderful feeling of ease and freedom from heavy and suppressed emotions.

    In the summer of 2018, I went for the Quantum Healing Hypnosis Technique (QHHT) session in Saskatoon with the wonderful practitioner Cynthia Fey. This type of hypnosis allows you to connect with your Higher-Self (subconscious). Through your past lives, at least a few of them, you'll learn and understand more about yourself.


   WHO I really AM, and why am I here?! What I discover through this session, is that my path is to be a shaman/healer and I'm on the Right Path now.

   Later, after I've explored more about myself at QHHT session, I've decided to combine Holistic Iridology with other alternative healing methods. Reiki Healing was my next choice, and I took one-on-one classes with Patty Dale. She is a very intuitive, wonderful teacher and Reiki Master. She told me that I am natural at healing and that I have the potential to grow. That was music to my ears and it brought more confidence within.

   I've got two levels of Reiki. This opened me much more to understanding energy, what it is, and how it works. I love to learn something new, and I call myself a "student forever".  I've searched for something else to learn more about energy. Then I found Life Balance Energy Practitioner Program with Celeste Lemieux, who is a natural, experienced healer with shamanic wisdom, strong human energy, and deep knowledge of psychology. This class has shifted my mind much further to understanding human energy, shamanism, and metaphysics. Celeste surprised me by noticing that I have more hidden natural intuitive gifts within. For me, this means there is more self-discovery inner work, and spiritual growth.  Through this program, I've got a true connection with Mother Earth and Source/God, and so much love and gratitude. I am so grateful for all my teachers and those souls who helped me on my not-so-easy life path.

    The 2020 year was for me very important, even though it wasn't easy, as for many. I was working on my spiritual growth very deeply. I did a lot of inner "shadow" and "dark knight" cleanse, healed some of my past life's wounds and pains. Healed my "inner child" and learned to BE me, stay in my heart, and how to open it and shine my light for others. There were more gifts opened up through my intuition, including intuitive art reading, card reading, and mediumship abilities. I'm still working on mediumship development, and last fall I've been taking a Psychic Development class in Saskatoon with a teacher Bev Lazar. Very good class, lots of real practice, which creates so much confidence and skills in psychic and mediumship.


   In April 2021 I've got my Reiki Master Certification, feel stronger with more knowledge, and skill for sharing healing energy. I will continue to explore and learn more in the healing field because there is no end to study and practice!!

   Also, I have a special connection with crystals, love their energies, their look, and their feel. Therefore, because I'm artistic, I love to create, so I've started to create wire-wrapped jewelry with crystals. Check my Shop here, please, you might find your treasure! By creating something your soul is in a natural state of being, and it's wonderful relaxing therapy.

I will continue to explore and learn more in the healing field because there is no end to study and practice!!!


Sincerely, your true healer,
