Reconnect with your Soul

About
How long have you been doing what you do, and how did you become a Soul Connection Guide?
To answer this question, it's probably best that I share my story - how I came to be facilitating the flow of universal energy through people like you as they work to heal their bodies, minds, and spirits, rid themselves of distractions and harmful habits, and ultimately find the peace and joy that comes from reconnecting with their souls.​
Many people will tell you about the one singular moment that defined or shaped their lives. I do not have that moment - with me things have always grown deliberately, slowly, and with divine guidance. I have allowed myself to be led by Source, and have trusted that my path would unfold as it should. But along the way, there have been markers that I believe pointed me here. I've always been interested and intrigued by the idea of complementary health care. More than fifteen years ago, I was hiking in the mountains with my husband and our two dogs. Looking over the most magnificent valley, I was overcome with the idea that I wanted to have a retreat centre where people could come and heal.

I've been an accountant all my working life. My left brain kicked in to strategize how to make this dream a reality. I didn't know what I wanted to focus on yet - so I read everything I could get my hands on - from books on tarot to energy to astrology, the whole gamut. I basically lived at the library. Eventually, I found a workshop on energy healing. The

workshop was okay - the recommended book list was amazing! This initially led to an interest in Reflexology and then expanded to aromatherapy and other energy healing modalities.

My work environment has always been strict, traditional, rule-centric, and overwhelmingly sexist. Definitely not the best environment to share my budding love for things like astrology! But, I continued to study and practice.

Then I was diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer. Between surgery and chemo I attended another workshop that focused on using essential oils and herbs as part of the healing process. The presenter told magnificent stories. I connected with him immediately. I committed myself to be the healthiest possible version of myself - physically, emotionally, and spiritually, before my first chemo infusion. I reached out to the presenter, and he insisted that I work with his wife. It was through this introduction that I began to work with my angels.
As I went through chemo, I mastered Angel Therapy and the foundation of my work - Healing Touch. One day, while watching Northern Exposure on TV, it dawned on me that I wanted to live in a wild, unpopulated environment like Alaska. Within half an hour my husband found a job in Whitehorse, Yukon (right next door to Alaska).

We made a clean break - from our old jobs, outdated identities, and my crappy year of chemo and radiation. I began working with clients in my small, tight-knit community. I took a government job for the stability and the start-up capital I needed to grow my practice. I lasted there for ten years and five days.

Ultimately I came to the realization that I was fighting my own process - of being led and of trusting. In some ways, I always had been. So, I took another leap of faith, quit that job and never looked back.

I continue to learn, heal, and follow the guidance of my soul and my angels, and still teach others how to do the same - only now it's full-time and online. Every day I relish the opportunity to watch as peace washes over my clients.

I have since made a commitment to dedicate the rest of my professional life to helping others overcome panic, pain, and other discombobulations as they shift their energies and reconnect with their souls. Together, we walk them through the process of waking up, putting their feelings and needs into words, creating the changes they seek, and learning to be kinder to themselves.

​Since then, I've worked with many private clients, spoken in front of countless groups: I lived my dream of reaching a wider audience from my gorgeous paradise in the Yukon.
"​Wherever a pain is, that's where the cure goes; wherever poverty is, that's where provision goes.

Wherever a difficult question is, that's where the answer goes; wherever a ship is, water goes to it.

Don't seek the water; increase your thirst, so the water may gush forth from above and below."
