Nancy and I started this healing initiative in 2016 by just meeting people and sharing what we could in MeetUps, particularly with Empaths, HSPs and Intuitives. We called it ShamanMan and almost immediately began having sessions and working with people directly. We made a few videos and continued our training and doing the work in a very casual way. I really wasn’t a typical “healer” type personality and had not ever considered being of service as a teacher/healer/spiritual practitioner to others, so I was still resisting. I think I wanted to ‘hermit’ myself away and continue to grow my personal relationship with Spirit, and expand my energy-training, but that approach wasn’t helpful to me living my purpose. I continued and worked with more people while working on myself.
In late Spring of 2017, I had a series of powerful visions and Spirit led me to move my family to the southwest. I knew there was more work to do on me and that I wasn’t going to be allowed to stay in the space I was in. I was shown for all of us, my whole family, we needed to step into our new selves, a higher version of ourselves, and the move was going to be a big factor in that evolution. So, even though we had never been there and I didn’t know where we’d land specifically, we left the mountains of Asheville, NC and let go to where we’d be placed.
Since then, so much has happened for us – to us – with us.
As I improved my “being-ness” I realized a whole new experience is possible and how to access it. I began sharing on our YouTube channel and in our one-on-one sessions, the teachings that I had been working with in my personal practice. We renamed our healing initiative to Soulfish and today, our goal is to share a practical approach that many of us can do in the present moment, to affect a positive change on ourselves thru awareness. Ultimately this work we do on ourselves positively impacts the collective conscious too. Change ourselves, and everything changes.
I am a psychic empath, an intuitive, a healer, teacher, and energy reader. I am a modern-day medicine man. I channel information and read energy and I share my practice with you. I use my experience and training to help you understand the challenges you’re facing, so you gain clarity, and receive the message you need for healing and positive change.
Nancy is an intuitive and helps others to listen to their inner voice, and channel their energy into action that manifests positive outcomes. She created ShamanMan and Soulfish and was my support as I struggled to learn and change. Because of her, we are able to help others seeking answers, spiritual understanding and energy work.
I knew as a kid that I was different.
I could feel how people really felt deep inside, and as I made it through high school and college, being around groups of people and ancillary friends became harder and harder. I had learned to suppress what I now know are my gifts, because when I shared with people what I was feeling and seeing, it made everyone uncomfortable; so I stopped talking about it and tried to block what I was experiencing. This created a love-hate relationship with people. I was always aloof and never really close to anyone – because I felt them already, I already “knew” them, and didn’t want to personally experience them. This is easy for me to say now, but at the time I didn’t understand why I was so different.
I have been self-employed most of my life. Why?
I think it was a natural response so I could earn a living while surviving the daily empathic onslaught. By having direct input on my schedule, environment and “have to’s” to generate income, I felt some level of control over my life. From 2000 to 2010, my gifts were more like a curse to me, and it was getting harder and harder to pick myself up and perform each day.
In 2010, something happened to me… I had a vision. It was so powerful and impacted me so strongly, that I couldn’t stop thinking about what had happened, and what it could mean. IT OPENED ME UP AND I DIDN’T KNOW WHAT TO DO NEXT OR WHAT I WAS GOING TO DO.
I could feel others so strongly, that I didn’t know where I began and where I ended. Everything was so intense and I began to know things in certain situations that I shouldn’t have known. It was like all the experiences I had as a kid were now so much more amplified and painful, and I was remembering things I had suppressed.
Once it begins you can’t turn back, and I didn’t want to. I needed answers.
As a result of my activation and awakening, we stopped everything we were doing, and spent the next year closing or selling off everything we had, and were called to the mountains of North Carolina. I began to meet people and without any control whatsoever, or being asked, I would do a reading for them. At first, I would just blurt out things and really freak people out; it could happen anywhere and at any time. (I learned later that this is a stage of development and what it means to channel.)
I put myself into seclusion and for 7 years, read and studied anything I could find that had to do with energy and empathic arts, and I began to study with other types of teachers of varying specialties. I grew a garden, and developed my spiritual practice, which has now, become a way of life for me. Source and Spirit provides and showed me my purpose. I was called to share it with you.
