Who I Am
About my own spiritual practices: For a very long time I labored under the notion that I had to be "spiritual" in all the ways that others described their spirituality. Later in life, I came to a place that has been increasingly important to my spiritual growth and expanding journey. I began to simplify my own journey, focusing on Celtic Shamanism (because that is where my calling manifested as my spiritual life matured) and I determined to listen to and appreciate the pathways of others rather than demand that I try to appropriate them as my own. I found that I could be in complete harmony with those who practiced in completely different ways, while I was centered on what was increasingly meaningful to me. So my practices, while simple, are deeply earth and nature-based, shamanic in focus, and profoundly authentic in my own spiritual story. One last clarification--many spiritual healers and leaders speak of receiving "downloads" by which they mean revelation or insight imparted to them by Source. I often speak of "uploads" because many of my revelations and insights come from deep within Mother Earth. My Spirit Guides and Power Animal connect me to Source that is both within myself and in the Earth. I also receive "downloads" but only after I have mined all that I have received from the Heart of Mother Earth. There is no dichotomy. We are all ONE.
