April’s Airings Owner and Editor

I am a born intuitive-empath and channel/medium. I am naturally curious and therefore, a life-long learner and seeker.

My spiritual interest and search began at the age of 8 in an effort to better understand the mysterious out-of-body, vivid dream, visionary, and psychic attack experiences I had been having.

Over the years my search to better understand and hone my natural sensitivities, capacities and leanings led me to delve into the mystical or esoteric sides of many religious and spiritual traditions and experiment with and deepen into many practices.

Some of the religions and spiritual traditions I’ve learned the most from include but are not limited to Christianity, Buddhism, Taoism, Sufism, Hermeticism, Judaism, Gnosticism, Theosophy, New Age spirituality, Shamanism, Native American spirituality, Celtic seership/spirituality, Wicca, and Appalachian Folk Magic.

Having worked 17 years at a private operating non-profit, I’ve also participated in many trainings, workshops, and conferences over the years to deepen more fully into these teachings and practices as well as studied and continue to study complementary topics such as philosophy, psychology, sociology, anthropology, quantum physics, and various other realms of science and thought.

I began as a trained Reiki practitioner and later became a master, and have been so for about 17 years now. I am a trained Shamanic journeyer and a natural sensitive, healer, and channel. I’m also a practicing herbalist and artist.

I am a 48-years young wife and mother to two beautiful young adults as well as two cats and a sassy free roam bunny. We are honored to call beautiful Southwest Michigan our home.

I feel my role in the current ascension cycle of the planet is that of transmuter, transmitter, seer and message bearer, co-creator, artist, counselor, diplomat, wisdom-sharer, and friend.
