Your journey from an educator to a certified holistic life coach is incredibly inspiring. What was the pivotal moment that led you to pursue metaphysical healing and transformation as your career?

I don’t think it was one pivotal moment. I think it was a gathering of different moments. I think the final straw was the process of me getting a divorce. I guess that would be considered a pivotal moment because it helped wake me up and acknowledge many things that had been happening in my life. I realized music might not have necessarily been my passionate path; it’s just something that comes naturally to me.

When I reflect back, I realize that many of the things I had been doing were already holistic healing. I would always coach people, talk to people, and help them feel better just by using gifts that I didn’t even realize I had until they were pointed out to me. Then COVID hit, and the music business I had before, which involved face-to-face interactions, wasn’t possible anymore. Considering all these little things, I finally decided to follow what comes naturally to me.

I am passionate about what I do, and that’s what matters most.

Your work involves modalities like Reiki, Akashic reading, and psychic mediumship, which can often face societal skepticism. How do you address this skepticism, and what advice do you have for others facing similar challenges in their unconventional careers?

For me, facing skepticism, I would like to say I don’t face it directly. I acknowledge that there are people who do not believe in what I believe in, whether it’s holistic practices, metaphysical ideas, Buddhism, Judaism, or Christianity. There will always be someone who doesn’t agree with or believe in my views.

So instead of trying to convince them or show them why I do what I do, I simply acknowledge their disbelief. If they have questions, I answer them. If they want to have a discussion—not a debate to convince either side, but a discussion out of curiosity and a desire to learn—we can have that. Otherwise, if they don’t believe in it, I leave it alone. If they have questions, I’ll answer them.

What type of services do you offer?

Healing is the easiest way to describe it, but the different modalities I use offer healing not just to the body, but also to the spirit, and the emotional and mental aspects. That’s why I like holistic coaching and holistic life coaching, because they work on all aspects of a person rather than just focusing on their spirituality, physical fitness, or emotional balance. A person is well-rounded when they can work on all these different aspects. Will they always be 100% in all four aspects? No, but helping them understand, “I feel this way because of this aspect,” is crucial. Instead of just helping someone get their diet together and then needing to find someone else to help with their mental state, these different modalities I offer provide comprehensive healing.

I offer one-on-one sessions as well as group sessions. I don’t have group sessions with Akashic Records because I feel that’s more private. I might offer it in the future for couples, but the Akashic Records are really a one-on-one thing for me. There might be others who do group sessions, but for me, it’s one-on-one practice because once I enter your records, they’re your records. However, for Reiki, I offer Reiki healing circles on the first Sunday of every month, which is a group session. I also have a group session for holistic coaching, which is an eight-week course.

Your transition into holistic life coaching involved a profound inner calling. How do you differentiate between an intuitive calling and other types of desires or ambitions?

Intuitive calling. That’s a hard one because it’s a question I’m always asked: how do I know it’s my intuition and not just me making it all up? That question is close to my heart because I’ve dealt with it a lot myself. For me, intuition means being called out of my comfort zone. It prompts me to do something that challenges me, as we don’t naturally seek out discomfort. The only comparable example is working out, and even then, many people ease into it rather than jumping straight into soreness.

Intuition calls me out of my comfort zone, creating moments for me to grow and gain a deeper understanding of myself. It also provides opportunities for me to help others. If I think of something solely about my personal desires, it’s usually about me wanting to feel a certain way. But intuitively, it’s not just about me. It’s about me growing in order to help others as well.

As a psychic medium, you help others connect with metaphysical realms. How do you stay grounded and protect your own energy while working with such powerful and often intense spiritual practices?

I ask for protection and lean on my own spiritual guides and source for that protection and guidance. For example, when working with Reiki, I don’t use my own energy. I’m just a vessel through which the energy flows to help others.

When it comes to psychic mediumship, it can be draining if I’m not mindful of grounding myself before and after sessions. If I don’t ground properly, it can become overwhelming. Even though there are times when I still get tired, I ensure that I take moments to rejuvenate and rest to continue this work as a career.

I ask for protection and let my guides know if I don’t feel ready for something, asking them to prevent it from happening. Sometimes, when my guides think I am ready, they present challenges to me, and I accept that as a sign that I am prepared. The most important part is staying grounded and allowing myself time to refresh and heal.

How do you practice self-care to maintain your own wellbeing?

I make it a point to meditate daily and to journal daily. I’m mindful about what I eat, which used to be a real challenge for me. I make sure to allow myself time to rest when I’m tired, something I didn’t do before. I used to push myself to keep going because that’s how I was raised—to keep working even when tired, as things had to get done.

Now, with a different practice and understanding, I realize that our bodies communicate with us and we must listen. Ignoring these signals can lead to migraines, high blood pressure, and other issues. Our bodies are like a telephone call from the spirit saying, “Hey, you need to slow down or rest.” I notice a significant difference when I don’t meditate, journal, eat right, or allow myself to rest. Allowing myself to rest was the hardest part because I used to feel guilty. I have three kids and always felt I couldn’t take time for myself, thinking it was selfish. This was ingrained in me and was the hardest battle to overcome.

Even now, my children remind me, “Mom, you need to rest. It’s OK.” So, I remember to rest. Meditation, journaling, and diet are all crucial for me. Some people like to get their nails done or go for a massage occasionally, but I prefer a nice bath, a good soak, meditation, journaling, and a healthy diet. Acknowledging that it’s OK to rest and not constantly go, go, go is essential, especially in a society that emphasizes constant productivity. So, I allow myself these practices.
