“She is free in her wildness. She is a wanderess, a drop of free water. She belongs to no man and to no city.”

Shamanic Practitioner. Energy Healer. Creatress.

I AM NEW ON THIS JOURNEY, THIS PATH - AN AMATEUR OF THE AWAKENED LIFE. 'SATURN RETURNS' SHOOK ME UP WITH A MAJOR BREAKDOWN SHORTLY AFTER MY 29TH BIRTHDAY AND STILL I WAS HESITANT TO SURRENDER TO THE HAND I WAS BEING DEALT. BUT IT WAS EXACTLY WHAT I NEEDED TO USHER ME INTO LIVING CONSCIOUSLY, WAKING UP AND Reprioritizing what i really valued in life.

IN 2014, I COMPLETED A 500HR VINYASA TEACHER TRAINING COURSE IN BALI, WHICH SET ME ON THE PATH OF SPIRITUAL AWAKENING, SELF DISCOVERY AND PERSONAL GROWTH.  THE LOVE OF MY LIFE IS A JACK RUSSELL TERRIER NAMED TOBY. I'M a LEFT-HANDED Vegan on the Pisces/Aries Cusp. I LIVE OUT OF A BACKPACK AND AM ADDICTED TO LISTENING TO LANGUAGES I DON'T SPEAK. I TURN STRANGERS INTO FRIENDS AND FALL IN LOVE WITH (AND IN) EVERY COUNTRY I VISIT.

Water + Fire. Moon + Sun. Pisces + Aries.

The name “upstream pisces” came to me as I slowly started making steps away from what society considers ‘normal’

(a nine-to-five job, eating meat at every meal, watching the news, to name a few)

Salmon and alternative fish swim upstream on a journey that leads them back to the situation of their birth. this is often wherever the circle of life begins and ends for every species.

something about the idea of individualizing myself outside of thousands of others of the same kind to return to source resonated with me. It’s about finding the current from forcing to flowing.

My birthday is March 20, landing me on the very last day of the zodiac calendar, and right on the cusp of the last sign, Pisces, and the first sign, Aries. This Means I’m a dreamer and a doer, Intuitive and impulsive, empathetic and Eager.

Water and Fire.

upstream /ˌəpˈstrēm/ adverb

  1. 1. in the opposite direction from that in which a stream or river flows; nearer to the source.

Emotion. Passion. Inspiration. Determination.

IN MY GEOGRAPHICALLY ADVENTUROUS JOURNEY, I'VE LIVED IN THE AUSTRALIAN OUTBACK, BIKED THE WORLD'S MOST DANGEROUS ROAD IN BOLIVIA, BUNGY JUMPED IN NEW ZEALAND, SKY DIVED OVER THE WINERIES OF ARGENTINA, TAKEN A SUNRISE HOT AIR BALLOON RIDE OVER JAIPUR, BATHED WITH ELEPHANTS IN THAILAND, CUDDLED A PANDA IN CHINA AND SPENT 40 HOURS ON THE WORLD'S WORST PASSAGEWAY TO GET TO ANTARCTICA.

IN MY SPIRITUALLY ADVENTUROUS JOURNEY, I'VE BEEN GUIDED THROUGH A PAST LIFE REGRESSION TO DISCOVER WHAT LIVES EXISTED BEFORE THIS ONE, BEEN PARALYZED BY SPIRITS AND LATER CLEANSED IN HOLY WATER IN BALI, FELT A LIGHTNING BOLT ROCK MY INSIDES WHEN I TOUCHED THE WESTERN WALL,  HAD A SEVEN-HOUR OUT-OF-BODY EXPERIENCE AT BURNING MAN, AND AFTER VOLUNTARILY BEING POISONED WITH FROG VENOM TO CLEAR PHYSICAL, MENTAL AND EMOTIONAL TOXINS, WAS TOLD I WOULD later Serve FROG MEDICINE. 

My favorite moment so far in this life has been conversing with the rising full moon as it sparkled over the ocean at sunset in a bay of rose quartz, receiving the answer from angels as I cried, wondering what in the world I've ever done to deserve being in that particular paradise.
