I grew up in the Republic of South Africa, both first world and third, in a country known for its deep political discord as well as stunning natural landscapes.
Surrounded by sharply contrasting views, beliefs and values, I had a LOT of confusion and endless questions.
How can we be sure we are living the life we came to live and not just following the rules?
(Uh oh, what if the rules are wrong?)
Where are the instructions for LIFE?
I had experiences I couldn’t explain. Like visits with family members who had passed onto the next life and ‘downloads’ of health and other information from those around me.
No one could explain this to me except to say “This kid is a bit weird!”
I LOVED my university studies in psychology, film, and theater arts. After graduation, I worked creating educational media for an international bank.
Working with executives in a demanding corporate job I thought the intuitive voice would leave me as I focused on practical and career concerns.
But it would not go away.
Instead, in my spare time I studied with mediums, healers, and wise elders. Finally, In response to my bottomless bucket of ever unfolding questions, I began to hear deeper answers which made more sense to me than what I had heard before. A revered African healer told me I had work to do and named me, in Zulu, “Eldest Daughter of Light.”
Thus began a rewarding time of spiritual discovery and a growing confidence in the purpose of my life. And more years of studies about how we think and the power of language and creativity, and resilience and more. Still asking questions.
I moved to the US, to the beautiful Pacific Northwest where I met my free-spirited husband and created our little family.
We love to return to Africa and my family there, whenever we can.
My deepest joy is to give people who are hungry for greater meaning and spiritual solutions, access to the answers within themselves – and the feeling of deep satisfaction that comes from connecting with their thoughts, wisdom, and true ideas.
