Job & Career
I picked up the Tarot at 10 years old and jumped right into the wormhole of the unseen world. I have been training ever since under various mentors and with countless books. In addition to psychic work, I was a highly acclaimed dancer, choreographer, multimedia artist, fire spinner, musician, and personal trainer. I ran my own dance company which received high acclaim, and toured my choreography internationally. I have also worked as a lawyer's assistant, DJ, and special needs caregiver.
I had my first Tarot reading at the age of 10 and knew it was for me. I got my first deck and was immediately in trouble for bringing the cards to elementary school. I continued to study the cards (and still do!). They were the gateway into all sorts of spiritual and occult studies, including the western esoteric tradition, witchcraft, energy healing, A Course In Miracles, Lenormand, Runes, Astrology, and more. My grandmother was a Christian Scientist and performed miracles. She continues to guide me on my spiritual journey. I began my professional practice reading at gay clubs in New York City. This is by far the most challenging atmospheres for psychic work. From that point on, I could do anything. I read for private events and corporate events, including Facebook. I eventually manifested my two dream jobs. I've always wanted to work as a psychic at Earth Spirit New Age Center, which is where I was gifted my first deck. They eventually hired me! My second dream job happened magically. I was walking through the New York Renaissance faire, thinking "one day, I am going to read cards hear". A few moments later, I passed the last psychic on "Mystic's Way" (where all the psychics work at the faire). We caught eyes and she asked me "Do you read cards?" I said yes, and she replied "give me a reading", so I did. After less than 5 minutes into the reading, she said "you're hired". Her name is Purim, and has since been a life-changing mentor of mine. From that moment, I learned more healing and psychic modalities. I studied Access Conscioussness, and became a certified Bars practitioner. I found a mentor to teach me Reiki. I studied Lenormand, Astrology, Runes, and other divination systems. I began teaching and lecturing on Tarot, holding workshops at the New York Pagan Pride Festival, Holistic Business Association, World Divination Association and more. I published 4 articles through Esotoracle Magazine. I recently received my Personal Training Certification through the National Academy of Sports Medicine, and am working on combining my mystical practice with fitness to create a holistic, energy based excercise program. I am also working on a book.
When giving readings, I am working on multiple planes. I will use Tarot to psychically trigger answers in my mind. I will also use the esoteric Tarot to reveal the underlying energy that is causing circumstances, and from their, draw cards to show how the client can change that energy. For detailed answers, I use Lenormand cards. For karmic questions, or difficult truths, I use the Runes. I use natal astrology to show how my client can transmute what they perceive as weaknesses into strengths. I use Access Consciousness tools to help my client change the energy of their situation and let go of points of views holding them back.
