General Consciousness Background
(Or, go directly to my realms of study and certifications.)
I was born into a long family line of intuitives and musicians, so I suppose it is only fitting that my greatest joy comes from creating original music that feels transformative, ecstatic, and has the potential to empower others to enhance their consciousness. The women in my family have been intuitives, readers, and mystics for at least 5 generations. Having the benefit of the teachings of my wise and wild grandmother, I naturally continued that tradition from childhood onward.
At the age of 14 I had my first visionary experience of what many refer to as "Universal Consciousness" or "the Mystery Which Can't Be Told". I am grateful that from that point onward, (through all kinds of highs and lows) I have remained open and actively sought out these consciousness expanding journeys - and over the many years, I've accumulated a variety of techniques to facilitate their occurrence.
In addition, I've enjoyed studies in Sound Therapy, Vocal Sound Healing, Transpersonal Psychology, Jungian Psychology, Breathwork, Hypnotherapy, Neuro-linguistic programming, and a variety of Shamanistic disciplines.
Since the early 90s, I've been honored to use these studies as an intuitive reader and consciousness coach, and teach these techniques to individuals and small workshops in several states in the US. Through the years performing as a songwriter/vocalist, I've realized the healing power of sound and music, and it has been a large part of the work I do in service to others.
At the current time, I am often working on recorded music that a wider audience can access, and I'm still accepting personal clients on a limited basis.
The use of rhythm and sound for consciousness expansion encompasses in general more repetitive and somewhat gentler sounds than the dynamic contrasts that I enjoy in performing live music. But layered harmonies and chants also fit in well with sound energy healing, and depending upon the client's needs, a variety of techniques may be used.
Besides writing and performing original tunes, I love layering vocals in interesting way, creating soundscapes, and it's been my experience that almost any style of toning or singing is a form of sound meditation. The transformative power of sound has always been a big part of my path and I enjoy vocal chanting as well as playing with sound healing tools such as tuning forks, singing bowls, binaural beats, and (of course) recording studio effects.
I am quite experienced as an Evolutionary Consciousness Facilitator & Counselor, and am still available for phone/skype consultations by appointment. (I use a variety of psychological and intuitive tools, including hypnosis, tarot, astrology, pendulum work and Jungian psychology in these consultations.) My clients' sessions often address personal challenges - but the focus of sessions and readings is always upon the bigger picture of human potential, creativity self-expression and each person's unique awakening consciousness.
For those who are interested, I have also listed several realms of study and my certifications.
