BIRTH. SCHOOL. TRANSFORMATION. MISSION.
I was born in the ultra cool town of Austin, Texas. I have never wanted to move away from this extremely ecclectic, just be you, kind of place. Austin is the music capital of the world! I grew up going to free concerts at Zilker Park soccer grounds, celebrating the Fourth of July by watching the fireworks on Auditorium Shores, participating in marching band contests at Darrell K. Royal - Texas Memorial Stadium at UT, and going to Austin Aqua Festivals with their theme nights and listening to new bands debut their new songs! Now Austin has SXSW (South By Southwest) and the Austin Music and Film Festival. This was (and still is) a phenomenal town to grow up in! If you're passing through and would like to add a reading with a medium to your experience, please contact me firstname.lastname@example.org.
I received my bachelors degree at the University of Texas in Austin. I started my teaching career in 1990. I've taught elementary, middle school, and high school in Austin and have met so many wonderful students, parents, teachers, and administrators. Each and everyone of these special individuals have made me who I am today. I'm very thankful to all the people that I have worked with, because I have learned a range of people skills that I now take forward to help others. Some of the lessons I've learned have been loving, supportive, and so helpful. Some lessons have been hard ones and self-reflective. These are the most valuable, because they have moved me towards the transformation that is necessary for me to move forward in a better, more healthy direction.
Failure or pain is the catalyst for growth and transformation. We experience challenges and or loss every day that are defining moments set specifically in our path as opportunities to experience transformation and growth. These life-challenging moments help us to become more reflective of ourselves and about the situation we are in. We begin to question. We make adjustments. We ask questions like, "What do I do now?" "How did I get here?" "What happens next?" or "What do I need to fix?" I reached that moment in 2005. My biggest quandary was, "Where do I go from here?" The world seemed so dark after experiencing the loss of someone very close to me. I know you can probably relate to this. Next came the light and the answer! Most importantly, I learned that pain never lasts.
My mediumship and or skills of just "knowing," skills I've had since I was very little, became my lifeboat! I decided to get up, pick myself up by the bootstraps, and take one step forward at a time. I have been using my intuitive skills and have helped many people. This is mainly why I became an ordained minister. I received training as a Stephen's Minister and was able to help people at an Austin church that I joined. Today, I can see how praying with and helping people is so rewarding and gives additional purpose to my life. It's also pretty cool that I have the ability to marry people that are so in love that they wish to make that ultimate commitment to one another!
I love seeing the impact that loving, intuitive messages have with people. Your family members are so ready to help you! I love that at the end of one session, a woman revealed to me that she had told a brother who had recently passed to tell Elizabeth to say the words "Wind Beneath My Wings." It had been a special song for the two of them, and she needed that sign from her brother to know that he could still hear from his sister. She wanted to make sure her brother was still around and in her life. During the session, the brother had important, family-related messages to share. I noticed that during the reading she seemed agitated and worried. I had read over our time, and then asked if we could close with prayer. She agreed. In my closing prayer I asked her brother to be the "wind beneath his sister's wings," and she looked at me with such surprise and just started crying tears of joy! She explained what the message meant and her body language changed! She experienced her own transformation in knowing that yes, her brother could still hear her and communicate to her, and that yes, he is still around! I see these moments as miracles!
My mission: I want to help as many people as I can to find resolution or peace in the difficult moments of loss or personal challenge.
