I am a yogini and a mother. I’m an Ayurvedic Health Counselor, an Akashic Records reader, and I'm the creator of altAred.
I believe we can alter and altar our life:
There is magic in the mundane...
bliss in the banal.
Life is ceremony.
The day is your dharma.
Before all this came about several year ago, though, I was totally frazzled, ungrounded, and desperate (DESPERATE) for change.
I finally realized things wouldn't change until I did.
In my practice of yoga and Ayurveda (yoga’s sister science) I realized it’s the little things we do all day, every day that add up to the biggest impact on our life- mind, body and spirit. Potent life transformations occur when the wisdom of Ayurveda is incorporated into daily rhythms. And ESPECIALLY when we begin to see everything through the lens of the sacred and ceremonial. The mundane can be magical, the banal can be blissful. I'm not “lucky” or “better” or “special”.
Mental and physical well-being is possible for us, if we’re willing to show up and make the space for change and healing. And when we honor the day-to-day as well as spirit. When we alter, we altar.
As my journey with Ayurveda continued it led me to shamanism (my ancestry is Peruvian and this felt like a natural fit) and to honor my clairaudient and claircognizant gifts.
Eventually this led me to the Akashic Records!!! Something just clicked within when I first heard about them and said “yes”.
When I went into my Akashic Records for the first time, it was a homecoming.
I heard joyous laughter and them saying “She’s here! She’s here! She’s back!” I could feel their excitement and sense them gathering ‘round. They were celebrating. There was such a presence of love and care and so much light. I knew I’d be connecting into my Records on an almost daily basis from then on.
And I knew I’d be reading for others, helping them connect into themselves, parts they know, but won’t fully trust, giving soul-guidance from their own highest selves. I was told, and could feel, that I’d done this work before and many, many times and so it was also one of my paths here and now.
It has been such a joy to do Akashic Records readings for others! I never, never ever saw this coming. I got completely blindsided by it but here I, gladly, am!
I’ve learned that’s how it works- sometimes you have to trust that incredible things are on their way to you, in ways that can’t even be imagined!
And every time you must trust the soul-guidance you are given.
My daily practices of Ayurvedic habits and soul-guidance have rewarded me with a blessed life. 🙏🌈💕
I spent a transformative month living at the Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health getting my 200 hour yoga teacher certification. I received my 85 hour pre/postnatal certificate through the Bhakti Yoga Center in Portland, OR. I've trained more than 200 hours in Ayurveda and habit change with Cate Stillman, and completed the Ayurvedic Health Counselor program from the California College of Ayurveda with 600 hours of studies. For my Akashic Records, I have studied with Ashley Wood of ALN Within.
I’ve learned a great deal, but still have so much more to learn through all the individuals I work with.
