Thank you for wanting to know more about me. I’m a lot like you – a soul on a journey. My husband and I created Angel Messenger as a way to help others learn how to connect with the Divine and to discover their own spiritual journey.
My own journey has been a long one and has taken me on a winding road through the challenges of a chronic form of PTSD and a decade long illness dealing with chronic nerve and muscle pain. It was quite a journey with all kinds of doctors, specialists, integrative, alternative and herbal practitioners, but my pain is now so much better. I’m not completely healed, but I’ve found a space for healing grace. (You can find an update on my illness below.)
I’ve gone so deep inside myself, inside the spiral of finding ME, and the person I found there was so badly hurt and ashamed … it’s no wonder I carried this pain. I have done quite a lot to heal myself. I’ve learned a great deal about nutrition, the human body and all our “bodies”, life, pain, real “forgiveness”, Truth, Faith, reality, spirituality, what my family did to me … and didn’t do. This world has so much pain, and it just keeps getting passed on. Someone has to be strong enough to both bear it and stop it.
Many years ago, I asked myself a question, “If the wound is where the light enters (when we ascend), what if the Light is where the wound enters we descend (when we are born into this world)?
Long before I knew that I was descended from two Shamanic races, both on my maternal grandmother’s side, I was actually drawn to Shamanic concepts. I do believe our souls remember, and I was just naturally drawn to this information (likely with spiritual help). 😉 Let’s not forget the importance of the fact that none of us walk this road alone. I am Native (Chippewa/Sioux) and Romani Gypsy.
I learned to draw on the strengths of my ancestors, especially what I began to know as my Sioux Grandmothers and my Gypsy Great-Grandmother who I did know in this life, though she did not teach me anything while alive. While I know some Natives get upset about mixed blood people, this is my Truth. I connect deeply with my grandmothers, and I won’t dishonor that connection.
Still, I have been a little apprehensive of embracing this energy publicly … I tell myself it’s because I am worried how those cultures will react to someone who technically is an outsider, though it may be my own sense of generational trauma still lingering a bit. It’s just …
I do see why people get upset about cultural appropriation. It does make me upset to see people acting like “gypsies” rip people off or are only cool for their “Bohemian style”, especially when those same people have no clue how many Romani were murdered in Nazi death camps or how horribly they are still treated in parts of the world today.
However, I believe on a very deep level there is a reason that society is being drawn to Shamanic cultures. On the surface, they might call it “New Age”, or maybe they are only subconsciously aware of the uniqueness or some superficial idea of the Truth … but, I think it’s really about the desire of the collective universal soul wanting to become enlightened. Maybe humanity is simply being drawn to what their souls know deep down is True … even if they only understand it on a less conscious level.
Imagine what could happen if humanity could become conscious of that desire though. I believe that now is the time for those ancient teachers to rise and teach their forgotten knowledge. There is great wisdom among the Shamanic races that humanity needs to remember, and now is the time to remember. There will also be challenges. Any time light rises, darkness will try to fight it. It must be like the law of gravity or something – happens to me every time.
I cannot watch or listen to a story about Nazis without getting upset, and I’m painfully aware white people have committed unforgivable crimes against Natives. Learning that history that we were not taught in school made me sick and angry. However, those white people are likely not the same people who are white today, and I wonder how many people who are white today were once Native. A soul must learn! There are still shadows of hatred and ignorance that replay throughout history and in every generation. But, I also feel a deep down knowing that now is the time for us all to remember all the parts of ourselves, and we are going to need the help of those who currently stand in the wisdom of the Creator. Some are Native, but there are others.
As I mentioned, please also consider how many “white people” have had past lives in a Shamanic race or are descended from at least one now? How many people have white skin and blonde hair, yet have Native blood? (I do!) We can’t tell just by looking at each other who we are anymore, and we were never meant to. Remember the old saying that, “We cannot judge a book by its cover.”
Maybe our Creator separated the races in the beginning until the time when we would be grown enough to truly come together and “see” each other as the one race we are.
There are reasons more can sympathize and empathize with the pain of others; we have been others. We have lived so many times … maybe as men and women, to find all the parts of ourselves and to bring balance within our own selves. This is part of our own individual enlightenment. Those who cannot sympathize or empathize may be those who still have great pain or karmic debt.
If my family’s generational trauma can hurt me, then it’s generational Gifts should also be able to help. Why can I not call upon my ancestors? Just because I was never taught about Romani beliefs, is there anything wrong with finding my own eclectic path? If the path of the wound can hurt us, healing that wound should also be where light can be found.
Did you know that there are people in this world with real Gifts? I mean it! When I was doing readings for people, I thought that everyone could read cards, and I would try to teach people in sessions. When my wait list got too long and I hired people to work with me, it took months for me to hire a team. At the time, I just felt like the difference was more that the people I found were Gifted but they also cared about the client. Some I talked to simply didn’t have talent, even though most meant well. Some were in it for the wrong reasons. I just wanted to find people I would go to if I needed to because I can’t recommend someone I wouldn’t go to myself.
Now, though, I understand that the people I chose have real life Gifts. They are different, like ME, even though it feels weird to say that. All the things that people said made me wrong or bad when I was younger are things that make me able to help this world. What’s most interesting is that there are people in my family of blood relatives that have Gifts like mine.
When I was offering readings, my Gifts were barely manifested. Now, they are different, and I’m still learning how they work. I offer prayers and blessings to heal things, situations and people – sometimes on the world stage, and sometimes it’s more personal. Sometimes I see things and/or receive information in the dream world. I now know for sure those things can be changed.
I also realize things I’ve written can be prophetic, and I know those things can also be changed. I think it’s like when I did readings. What I saw then was like optional paths available at the time, and I think that’s how things work now. What I say or see, etc. is applicable to the energies at the time … unless things change. Just FYI, THINGS MUST CHANGE.
I am still a bit limited in what I can do, but I’m not going to just sit around and wait for things to get better. Both Gaia and her inhabitants need help. Sometimes I do feel like it will never be enough to make a difference, but I keep reminding myself of the Starfish Story …
A boy was walking along the beach where thousands of starfish had washed ashore, and he was picking them up one by one and tossing them back into the sea. A man walks up and asks the boy why he bothers with his task as there is no way he can possibly make a difference as there were so many washed ashore. The boy answered by bending down, picking up another starfish and tossing it into the sea. He looked at the man and said, “… made a difference for that one.”
I do not offer public readings anymore, but my spiritual guidance is like a constant filter at times. It’s often too much. Most of the time, I’m really just exhausted from this illness that I struggle with. It makes me so upset that I can’t do more because I have to deal with this, but something inside my heart just says to keep going because you never know what can happen. Maybe the starfish I help will make a huge difference, or maybe …. maybe our prayers joined together will create a miracle.
My life is far from perfect, but life doesn’t have to be perfect to be good.
My mission is to balance my own energy enough so that I can create on the good days. I just want to begin creating little specks of light where I can, and maybe a few of those specks will shine bright enough to ripple out and touch the heart of another.
I work on creative and Charity Projects. One project has been adding physical products to our online store in order to raise more money for those worthy projects, and we do giveaways to help lift up others. My hope is that the store will grow enough to also help support my family and my projects.
My biggest project has been fighting cancer. For over a year now, my father-in-law has been living with us and fighting cancer. His adult son with autism also moved in with us when Dad moved in. We believe Dad’s cancer is cured, though his next scan will confirm. However, another loved one is now in for a fight.
My dog, furbaby, lovebug, Riley was diagnosed with bone cancer in March 2023. Bone cancer usually takes it’s victim quite quickly, even when you take the recommended route, which is to amputate what you can to slow the cancer and then treat with chemo and radiation. That treatment is not fun and does not give the dog long. Thankfully, my husband is great at research and found a pilot program in Ohio.
This program is immunotherapy specifically for bone cancer where they are taking Riley’s cancer cells and creating a vaccine specifically for his cancer. This is very promising, and dogs in this program are living a year, two years or more. This process is already being used in brain tumors for humans, and I can definitely see this working as a cure in the future.
The vets we are working with are doing a great job; they had to learn how to do parts of the procedure so that we only have to drive out of state twice. We are also hoping that bring this therapy to our area means saving the lives of other pets.
This is expensive, though. I had a small retirement account with $17K in, so I took out $10K. My husband had a small investment account where he was learning how to invest that he emptied out. My father-in-law also took money out of his retirement account. I’m going to create a donation account to hopefully get some financial help. I know some people won’t understand why we are doing this, and that’s okay, but Riley isn’t just any dog.
Riley has helped my father-in-law, and all of us really, to heal from immense loss. He has also been right by our side as we battled the first war on cancer. Of course we need to be there for him, and we will help him to fight this as best we can.
Thank you for reading about me. We are all souls on a journey.
Wishing You All Heavenly Blessings,

Recently, I’ve been really focused on Riley and his healing. My own healing has been a bit confusing. In some ways, I think I’m better, though sometimes I do still have serious bouts of pain. It’s quite manageable most of the time. The biggest challenge at the moment is exhaustion.
