Everything I do, is in honour, with Love and deep gratitude to my Beloved, the Creator Source of All That Is. I hold a Bachelors Degree in Psychology and Geography which initiated my life long Love and dedication to help humanity, the Earth and the Natural World. I have an American based, international post graduate qualification structured upon Quantum Physics principles, in which I specialise in Energy Medicine, Herbalism, Nutrition and Natural Diet, Tissue Salts, Essential Oils, Traditional Healing and Natural Medicine.

.
I offer Intuitive Counselling, Life and Health Transformational Coaching. I am a certified Ho'oponopono practitioner, a certified PSYCH-K practitioner, a certified Crystal Surgery Energy Medicine practitioner. I was initially trained well over 25 years ago in Transcendental Meditation and have over the years since then, expanded my experience and expertise within meditation work, to provide on going facilitated meditation groups and continue to offer meditation training. I provide Self Discovery, healing and awakening processes in private sessions and in group workshops and courses, in specific group gatherings, and in local and international Ceremonies. As a certified Ho'oponopono practitioner, I offer monthly Ho'oponopono workshops and support sessions. My work is dedicated to help humanity to awaken ways which better serve them as I guide and facilitate individuals and groups who come to me, who seek my guidance and expertise, to help turn their lives around for the better.


I am an advocate for Mother Earth. I am passionately involved in global work dedicated to the healing, purification and overall environmental protection of our Waters, Forest lands, our planet ; I am a Wolf, wildlife and animal activist - work which honours and respects and demands protection for and of the Sacredness of our beloved Mother Earth home, and her life forms, based on ancient Wisdom taught to me and that which I have deeply awoken to know - we live on one planet we all call home. The Earth can live without us, yet none of us can live without her.  In all I do, I work with Love and Action. I was inspired by the profoundness in words uttered by Deepak Chopra  ''Action without Love is meaningless. And Love without action is futile'' words which continue to inspire me forward with everything I do. 

In addition, I have had over twenty years training and hands on experience in Metaphysical / Spiritual studies, in which over fifteen consecutive years were dedicated in learning from authentic Indigenous Spiritual and Shaman Healers and Teachers with over fourteen consecutive years to date, being dedicated to specialist training in mystical esoteric fields, called Mystery Work, communing at will, with the Spirit World, based on the original Beauty and Peace of ancient Islamic Wisdom.

My Spiritual Training and work, is on going.



Since the year 2000 I continue to offer my services from my private practice in Cape Town, South Africa. I provide my services to local and international clients some of whom do process work with me in person, some engage with the distance healing I provide, others select certain private and group options done via Skype / telephone.
.
Whilst most of my work is structured upon the Teachings and ways found in North Native American Spiritual Wisdom, I blend Spiritual Teachings I have also received from the Orient, from Africa, and from Islam as well. My work is thus positively influenced by all the Spiritual and Shamanic Teachings I have received which is on going. I do not regard, nor do I call myself a Shaman. I work psychically and intuitively to attempt to bring the Visions and messages which are 'channeled' through me from the Creator Source into the physical world. I respect this as a gift. It is how the Creator made me, for which I am humble and very grateful.
 
I stand in my Light; I am surrounded by the Light; I work with Love and gratitude. And prayer is my Medicine.

Today I do the work I offer, with the expressed permission from my living teachers, Medicine People, whose individual paths crossed my path at different times in my life, which later resulted in me being granted permission by them, to do the Spiritual / Shamanic work I now do. I was not searching for ways to become a Spiritual / Shamanic teacher or healer. I needed healing in my life. From the moment I encountered these Spiritual ways, I felt and continue to feel, a deep, profound natural connection with these ways, as to who I am within my Spiritual Essence.


I am not Red, nor do I regard myself as any other skin colour other than what I am. I am white and I walk me, exactly as I am, in honour and respect, of all I am and all I am becoming. I am not claiming Red Spirituality or any other culture's Spirituality as mine. I have found a natural connection with these ancient Universal ways, which resonates with who I am at the core of my being and at all times, I give full acknowledgement, respect and continual gratitude to my Spiritual Teachers and these profound Natural ways, which have helped me find 'me' in this world.





I consider the work I do today as a Spiritual / Shamanic Energy healer-teacher, some of which was born to me from Ceremony, some of which I aquired through academic studies, all of which has been guided by the Creator Source and my choice to embrace my path, as my purpose and my mission in this life as I walk the Earth Mother. I consider my Earth walk a privilege and the gift I have given myself has been in my learning how to heal my separations and perhaps show others it is possible to feel the Spiritual Essence of Love and Light within themselves as well.

In all that I do and all that I am, I do not attempt to speak or act on behalf of any Tribe or any other person. The work I do above all else, is in honour and service of the Creator of All That Is, working for the highest good with those who love our Mother Earth and her living life forms, and in honour of the Indigenous Peoples of the Earth, like the Red Nations, for they have continued to provide answers to a world which continues to ignore the questions. Blessed I am, having been born into a good and caring family, in the treasured, remembered beauty and sacredness of the land now called Zimbabwe, with its mysterious powers of Nature and its vibrant 'salt of the Earth' peoples, I chose my origins for this Earth walk, very well.



While it may baffle some as to why I walk this path, it is very clear to me. I found God in Nature and the Nature-based Spirituality of this shamanic path called the Red Road found me, with its ancient Universal wisdom, its way of beauty, of reverence, and of profound simplicity. Its deep abiding love for Mother Earth and its worship,honour and respect above all else, for a living Creator, God, Great Spirit, ever-present everywhere and within all of life, was for me the most humbling, practical, beautiful, all-encompassing way of being.

Beyond the stories you may have been told and the impressions you may have formed from Hollywood movies about a savage, barbaric Red Nation, there is abundant evidence contradicting such misrepresentations. Even though there were hundreds of different Red Tribes covering the vast territories of North America, with many different languages and ways, most were peaceful, loving people who embraced a common attitude, both deeply spiritual and practical, and all shared a close affinity with Nature and a reverence for life.


 

The Native Americans, the First Nations People of that continent, have from the beginning not attempted to describe God, the Creator. Their reference to this omnipotent power as the Great Mystery appropriately sidesteps such theological arguments, for how can we as human beings attempt description of the Creator of all things, when clearly the Creator is too vast to describe. This Creator, Great Mystery, Great Spirit, is the same mysterious power, the Source of everything, and is the same God, Allah, Supreme Unity, Cosmic/Universal energy-regardless of name, culture or creed. The Native American People, the First Nation People of America, acknowledged this one Creator Source of everything, from which all life has been breathed. Modern seekers today are realising like the tribal ones of old, that we, and all life, are extensions of that Great Mystery force.To these Red People, life is lived in acknowledgment, in honour of this living Creator from which all life has come.

 




Everything the Creator has created, is thus alive with consciousness and intelligence, with purpose and meaning in its role in existence. This is why all life to these people is sacred. It is understood therefore that the mineral, plant and animal kingdoms and we human beings are interdependent strands of the great web of life. The connecting thread, is found in the Sacred Wind which links all things together; whatever we do, affects everything everywhere. All life is connected.The revival of these natural shamanic ways is a blessing for a modern world desperately in need of solutions. ''We all perish together if we lose our Earth to global warming,pollution, (deforestation), greed and over-population''Ed McGaa. It is time for the modern society of our world to change, to wake up from its ignorance of a living Earth. It would be different if we all lived on other planets, but we don't, we live on one, and the consequences of all actions affect the whole.





The origins of shamanism can be traced to Stone Age times. All of us have evolved from shamanic cultures regardless of where we live, our modern culture, or our current creed. Shamanic origins are not separate from us. Shamanisim is in our roots, as human beings. Anyone can embrace shamanic ways, without abandoning their religious beliefs, yet not everyone becomes a shaman, nor should one feel this is necessarily the goal. In tribal cultures, the shaman is considered as the 'doctor of the soul'. His or her primary focus as a healer is upon the health of the Spirit of the people, the community, the individuals. The return of the way of the shaman is here to guide us forward, forever reminding us of the fragile beauty and living wonder of life.

It is not that all that is modern is bad and all that is old is good. It is not about turning back the hands of time to be living in a bygone era. Yet, the awesome triumphs that our Western culture have achieved in technology, communications and science have not been equally supported by a growing spiritual awareness, and so we stand within a time of phenomenal opportunities as well as of extraordinary dangers threatening the entire planet.

We live in a take-away society, where we are respected for what we can take. At the root of this competitive culture lies a scarcity consciousness: fear that there is not enough, so one must take as much as possible , as quickly as possible, before it all runs out. By comparison, the Natural Way, the Shamanic Way, understands that the Earth provides for us, and that as we take care of her, she is enabled to continue to provide for us, and we are able to share her produce with all.

Today, as individuals disconnected from the Earth and ourselves, we search for answers. We have forgotten so many things. We no longer find harmonious ways to relate to one another; we are at war within ourselves and with each other. Terrified of parts of ourselves, we are cut off from our inner nature, and set up against our natural instincts. We have become lost in a world of outer effect, having forgotten the importance of what's inside of each one of us. As a people, our suffering from soul-loss is increasing rapidly. This is evidenced by so much feeling of emptiness, of no purpose, no meaning, of self-hatred and abuse through alcohol, drugs, rape, pornography, lack of respect for the self, others and our planet - diseases of our society.




The revival of shamanism is here to help heal our separations, to guide us into rediscovering deep connection within ourselves, each other and with our Mother Earth, in honour of the Creator, who makes all life possible.These ways of beauty touch a person's heart; where there is beauty, there is harmony. Through these ways we learn to heal pieces of our personal history which hurt and prevent us from being in the 'now'. We learn to take responsibility and stop complaining and blaming others; we find honour, respect and value for ourselves, we find appreciation and peace, we learn the necessity to balance the great powers of the feminine and the masculine, within ourselves. We come to learn that as human beings we are not superior to any other life form, that everything Creator has made has great purpose, including our being here. It is not enough to just take care of ourselves, for we are part of a community, which includes air, water, soils, plants, animals and all the races of human beings. As we awaken to the oneness of all life, we realise the interdependency of all things and our need to work for the good of all and the healing of our Earth.

It takes courage to walk one's talk. These times need great change, great healing and the only one we can change and heal is ourself. Just talking about changing our ways will not yield those results. Walking our talk is about being who we say we are. Walking our talk is the gift we give ourselves to discover our integrity, our authenticity, and as we learn to walk that and to be that in the 'now', we awaken what it truly means to be human and here.

We cannot take war out of this world until we stop our own daily war within ourselves, our personal reality first. As human beings, regardless of our differences, we are one people and it is incumbent upon all who awaken to work for the good of all, not just for one's self. As we awaken from our slumber and our habitual patterns, we realise the Divine within and all around - the beauty of our essential nature, the sacred stillness at the centre of our being, the connection to the Great Mystery. When we commune with the Great Mystery, all life becomes magical and everything we do can help the whole.






It is wholeness that comes from moving beyond our limiting conditions of consciousness. Walking these paths of transformation brings a wholeness in which we can then continue our walk with wisdom, every moment, everywhere, as fully awakening human beings, knowing the journey of life is never over. We learn to acknowledge the Divine presence of compassionate grace within ourselves and we learn to stand tall in that presence. Life is an honour, a privilege, it is Creator's gift, and to choose to live in the present is the gift we give ourselves.

It is with appreciation and deep love that I thank all that is in my life; lessons which teach me who I am and who I am not, guide me to make better choices each time and help me to awaken myself more fully each moment, as I, like any student of life, continue to discover my place in the wholeness of Creation.
