As an Empathic soul, I’ve been focused on ‘helping’ seems all my life. It was very painful when young. Couldn’t tell me from them. Them as someone sitting next to me or someone sitting half way around the world. I felt their pain as my own. It was scary. Makes one wonder if they are quite right in the mind. Certainly, family members don’t seem to think so.
And it is a very strange place, this world, after all. How can you know or tell when you are young and dead center in the middle of a very structured country. ‘This is how it is.” “This is reality everywhere.” “This is how We act and everyone else is wrong.” I get it now. They were trying to ‘feel safe’ by drawing lines in the sand, never noticing that sand shifts so easily. A small breeze, a drop of rain, a flood or tornado ~ suddenly everything known was now un-known. So go back to the point were we Knew everything and just keep believing it, no matter what! Drill it into the little minds around you to keep them anchored.
Anyone out there? Anyone else feel the unreality of reality? Do you wonder if it’s You or someone else? Do you feel like you’re loosing It but you don’t know what It is? Very unsettling. Are you trying to keep the lid on so ‘they’ don’t know how loosely hinged you are? Are you self-medicating with food, alcohol, drugs (prescribed or self-sourced), sex, movies, TV, religion, exercise; Anything to keep your mind too busy to ask questions? Let me just stop here and tell you, you are OK. You just can’t remember why you came this way. What ever made you think this was a good idea?
This is the beginning of Truth. The beginning of understanding. Don’t try to ‘hide or run’ away from it. That’s where the real insanity lies. Where medication is used to numb you out like all the other little clones. You, are not, that. Rejoice in this one fact for at least a minute! Breath. Breathing is good.

I am a Traveler on a spiritual quest, not to identify or select a 'religion;' but bring together all I've studied and experienced (an ongoing process) for those who are drawn to this site. Travelers who have been swimming in consciousness and currently feeling adrift on a sea of confusion.
All the experiences (see below), always brought me back to my true love: Spirituality, Healing, Peace and Love, Always Love. Through many life experiences, positive and positive only after suffering through them; I found my true calling and abilities. Like most of us, beginning with a traditional American religious upbringing. Conservative Christian on maternal side and Catholic on the paternal, immigrant side.
Not realizing, how my inherited DNA would give me insights of the ancient people and places coursing through my veins. While it was difficult, being born into dichotomy, it gave me the Gift of seeing the Truth in all, as well as belief in the inherent goodness of most people. At 3 years old, family members were taken aback by my 'insights.' I was always that weird little kid and most of the time with family, I still am. LOL
Drawn to study esoteric subjects: astrology, tarot, metaphysics (always my favorite) and philosophies of the world, especially Eastern thought. A very old soul in a very young, naive and 'conditioned' body/mind. This is where most of us start. Some have no interest in anything outside their conditioning - this site is not for them. It's for you who've been called: weird, strange, crazy, confused, depressed, lost, geek, stupid, witchy, different, dreamer, empathic, too loving or too caring, two-minded, Asperger, wrong gender identity - boy do I have good news for you all.
You were sent ~by your own Higher Self, to the planet of chaos to make it the planet of peace. Thank you for showing up.
Background for those who wonder Who I AM- that's another story, but here's some random details. I've experienced many different working environments: medical, allopathic, alternative and homeopathic medicine; working as an Office Nurse, an Administrator and as a Speaker and Consultant. Doing business start ups for medical, dental, legal and governmental contracting. Walking into places where I had no experience and learning an entirely new skill set in days, like a shipping manager who learned to design beanie babies. Whatever served in the moment. Giving me the confidence to do anything that was brought to me. Started working at 14 when minimum wage was about $1.60 an hour, far exceeded that in the intervening years.
An only child with 4 grown children and 8 grands, they are my life blood. And, 8 years ago married a man with 4 grown children and 3 grands - so far. I know something about the younger generations and I'm here for YOU XO
Earning an AA in Behavioral Science, BS in Sociology, Psychology and Management and currently a candidate for PhD in Metaphysical Sciences (this is just for my own pleasure). A Holistic Practitioner 'on the side' for over 40 years. A Reiki/Seichim Master, Ordained Minister (doing weddings and funerals - in the last years for my own family). Lots of time in the delivery room with patients and my own family members. Most of those pieces of paper are in boxes somewhere. The important part is, being 'dragged back' to Healing Arts many times (the little girl who Never wanted to be a nurse), because I was innately gifted for these professions. To the point of being paid to gain a medical education and worked with truly amazing, gifted healers. I've become a fierce Patient Advocate and Medical Intuitive. Learning through all these experiences how to combine my knowledge with my Intuition.
Being graced to work with amazing Esoteric and Philosophical Mentors and Masters who kept me balanced through my tumultuous life. They keep me seeking Higher Knowledge and developing my own personal belief system and growing in Ancient Arcane subjects. Thinking it was just to keep Me sane; turns out, it was preparing me to help others coming, as I'd been helped.
In recent years becoming a Death Whisperer and Eulogy Giver. Never saw that coming! The overly sensitive little girl - dubbed 'Princess Running Water' through all of this experience became a Healing Shamanic Empath who just wants to heal the world.
It was all a setup! EVERYTHING I've done put me with the right and wrong people, to hone me into a Creative Healing Advocate.
What is your Set-Up? Who are you being trained to BE? Let's find out together.
No matter your decision, May your journey be Blessed with insight, movement and finding the good in Everything so you become Who You Came Here to BE. It’s always all about you and nothing to do with me, unless I serve your progress. Whatever and wherever your Journey takes you, my Blessings go with you.
You are not alone. Blessed Be on your Journey.
