I’m a former minister, turned virtual assistant, turned graphic designer, content manager,(can you say multipassionate?) and current taro reader, spiritual coach, and metaphysical boutique and community owner.
Maybe you feel the same way wondering how and where all the pieces fit together, and where YOUR purpose is in all of it.
I have been visited by ghosts and spirits all my life. Being raised in a Catholic family, my spiritual connection with these entities wasn’t encouraged. This led to a lot of conflict, confusion, low self-esteem, and depression. At the age of 13, I tried to take my life.
I was eager to learn more about what my purpose was and how spirituality was meant to play a role in my life. My ancestors are a powerful line of Tainos and brujas, or witches, and so I visited all the Botanicas, Wiccan festivals, and read everything I could find.
Then I met a boy. I followed him into the Baptist Church where I got holy, saved, and sanctified! Needless to say, my devout Catholic grandfather said I broke his heart. He passed away a month after I was baptized as Protestant; the pain I felt following his loss threw me deeper into the Church (and into my relationship) looking for connection and wholeness.
By 2014 I was a licensed minister, had two beautiful children, and was about to be married. But I realized I had been following someone blindly, and this person had been causing a lot of harm to myself, my fiancé, and my children. Through a lot of darkness and church trauma, I decided to leave the church, including my collar. I remained agnostic for the next few years.
Through my husband Spirit directed me to begin joining him in his meditation practice. I was able to start over again and begin healing.
Not only did Spirit decide to guide me in my healing and my practice, but also in building a thriving business for myself, my family, and the community I serve. (a nod of thanks to my Capricorn stellium in my 2nd house IYKYK)
I started teaching myself graphic design through YouTube videos, mentorship, and LOTS of practice. I launched my virtual assistance business which evolved into web design and content management. Spirit led me to integrate my astrology and tarot work into my business even more. As I helped my clients, my business continued o thrive.
I’ve since put up an altar, continuing to incorporate more ancestral veneration into my life and business. My spiritual practice is rich because I decided to go with what feels right for ME, and not follow anyone else’s rules of how things should be done.
The Oracle’s Haven is my heart right now, and I continue to focus on reading and offering spiritual coaching professionally. It has a deep impact on my clients both in their business and personal lives. Nothing makes me feel more complete!
