Isn't it interesting how we can see other people's patterns and personal dynamics with such clarity? How the answers and solutions to their problems seem so simple from our perspective? Why don't we have the same certainty with regards to our own lives? This is the plight of the human condition. We must all operate at whatever level of self-awareness we have in the present moment. However, there are tools that can help us deepen our self-awareness and better understand ourselves. Astrology is one such tool. It is a language of symbols; an architecture of the soul’s development. It can be thought of as a map or blueprint to the Self, highlighting the ways in which your personality functions best and outlining what challenges and blesses you in this life.
I always felt the best teachers were the ones who knew the shadow. People who have been to the darkest parts of their own character, dangerously close to self-destruction, and found a way to get up and out of it. What better way to learn to shed self-hatred than through experience? I will always be a life-long student, but today, I'm proud also to consider myself a teacher.
The path to working in the healing arts is so often fraught with challenge and hard times, and my story doesn’t break that tradition. I am a survivor. I have chosen not to escape the life I’ve been dealt but instead put in the work it takes to overcome the obstacles that were placed in front of me. Over the years, I’ve sought meaning, awareness, and healing through many different methods. Three modalities in particular gave me profound results, and I felt compelled to master them in the hopes that I may be a conduit for others to connect with their own powers of transformation. Those healing modalities are yoga, tarot, and astrology, which I relate accordingly to body, mind, and soul.
As a survivor of sexual abuse and addiction, I struggled with limiting belief systems and body disassociation. I took my first yoga class at the age of 16, where I rediscovered myself and my body through the practice, and over the years, it transformed me. I have been teaching since 2009 with a focus on trauma-informed yoga, yoga for PTSD, and Yoga Nidra to help reconnect trauma survivors to their bodies and fully process physical and emotional pain so they can feel more present and grounded in their lives.
In 2010, I was given my first tarot deck, and though I used it often for insight, it wasn’t until 2016 that I understood how empowering readings could be. The archetypes of the tarot help to open the dialog between our conscious and subconscious mind. Through imagery and symbolism, we are invited into new perspectives, and our personal and lineal patterns become more apparent, allowing us to take a more active role in our own evolution. My grandmother was an astrologer, and during my childhood, she would send me occasional readings. In 2016, I met my teacher and mentor Adrienne Abeyta, who gave me a remarkable reading that showed me how astrology could afford us all a better understanding of ourselves and our karmic path in this life. It also brings greater insight on the people in our lives, allowing for higher levels of communication and coexistence.
Through these healing modalities, I act as a guide for you, dear seeker. It is my highest intention to serve those who seek a path of meaning and transformation. If you are searching for guidance and support on your own soul's journey, come in, and explore what I can offer you.
