All my life I have been intuitive. My career has been in engineering and construction. In 2012, a deep point in my life brought full awakening. Working with teachers and my Guides in Spirit, I learned about Reiki, Shamanic Reiki, Shamanic tools, Ceremony, Bell/Dorjie, White Buffalo Calf Lady and more as they guided me onto my new path. In Spring 2019, I was given a vision of a specific sacred drum that would honor the Earth, the Tall People, Tribes, all of my Earth Relations and Cultures worldwide. In the last part of the vision, they asked me to create them. This was a first for me as I had never done/made anything like this before or been given such a task to integrate multiple trees and their energies into one drum frame. Presenting Wakan Drums at my first Powwow in August 2019 brought tears of joy to me as many Elders “knew” what they were and thanked me for “bringing them to the Earth” along with giving them many blessings. Today my work includes creating Wakan Drums for people who seek them, helping people journey and interact with Spirit as they hold a drum, teach/conduct drum healing methods, work with local talented Reiki/Shamanic/Energy Group providing free healing work, teach what I have learned, help people take their first steps onto their Red Road or help expand other practitioners’ paths. I conduct Sound Healings with my drums and a Sacred Storystick (flute) I was gifted/created by an Elder to me and provide opportunities for folks to hold these drums, connect to their Spirit Guides and Ancestors and begin to understand that Sacred Drums are (as are all things) their own entities and Spirits walk with all of us, which is quite a surprise for many.
