BLUE'S STORY

Growing up, I didn’t understand how to “fit in.” I wondered why I was here and what the whole purpose was. 

 

I tried fitting into other people’s boxes, acting like a chameleon in the background. Blending in as a desperate attempt to obtain connection, which I had discerned was the answer to the emptiness I felt inside.

 

I was initiated onto the medicine path through sixteen years of ritualistic abuse. Like many who endure ongoing trauma, I felt like I was living a double life. One where I was completely me and the other the “filtered” me. The “I must conform in order to have value, be safe and thus be accepted” version of me.

What I wanted was to merge all aspects of myself -- to be whole. I didn’t want to live a fragmented existence anymore. I wanted to embody everything I was in every moment. To feel at home within my own skin. What got me through was connecting with nature, working with sacred medicines and nurturing my relationship with Spirit. 

 

I had many initiations and learned many lessons. Some of which dangled me over the ledge of death many times. No matter what I endured, no one could break the part of me that danced with spirit. I learned what it meant to have autonomy over my body. To enjoy my physical form as something that could also experience pleasure and peace, not just pain. I learned what it meant to have autonomy over my gender. I never really felt like a “girl” or a “boy.” I felt like something else entirely. Some indigenous traditions would describe me as being “two spirit.” I am simply me; a human being.

 

I believe the greatest gift we can give in this life is a loving presence to everything that we are and to encourage others to do the same. Medicine taught me how to be in unity within myself, to embrace the parts of me that are unique. I believe you color your own light. The spectrums you choose to embody are up to you! When we belong with ourselves, we don’t need to filter who we are anymore, to choose sides, or oversacrifice to gain approval.

 

I offer a pathway to guide you back home to yourself through medicine ceremony, healing sessions and spiritual apprenticeship.

My heart is my work. My clients are my family. My medicine is my path. 

Xoxo,

Blue

why blue heron?

The Blue Heron is one of the power animals I embody within my work. It has a unique and personal history to me and has shown up in my life as a beacon of hope, peace and liberation. I’ve had many near death experiences throughout my life. Every time I’d get to the white light, I’d see a blue heron spreading its wings. While in its presence, I would feel an overwhelming pouring of care and love along with the message “not yet dear one.”

Here’s some more information about the Heron spirit:

Heron’s medicine is both simple and complex. Its message is this:  EMBRACE YOUR UNIQUENESS! 

Those who are called to work with the Heron are individualists who utilize their differences to elicit change in the world around them. They have a desire to establish themselves as unique and independent beings. Often making these souls the revolutionaries that disrupt the status quo of society in order to elicit change and evolution. Blue Heron souls teach the rest of us the value and importance of each individual contribution to the whole. 

Heron has a long history in myth which spans across ancient Greece, Egypt, China, Japan and in Native American cultures. It is often called the “bringer of light” having associations with the sun and the concept of the “holy spear, or spear magick.”

 

Within the spiritual realm, Heron represents:

 

  • Medicine journeying

  • Safe passage to the soul world

  • Insight and psychic vision

  • Strength of spirit

  • Majesty

  • Wetlands wisdom

 

Within the emotional realm, Heron helps us discover:

  • The natural flow of being ourselves

  • Stability

  • The ability to stand alone

  • Balance

  • Boundaries

  • Peace

  • Dignity

  • Self-confidence

 

Within the physical realm, Heron encourages:

  • Exploration

  • Experimentation

  • Fluidity

  • Stillness and striking quickly

Heron comes into our lives like an arrow from the Cosmos to make sure we are on target too. 

TESTIMONIALS

"When I was first introduced to Blue's healing work, I was in the throes of facing my deepest core wounding. My 15 year marriage had ended, I felt alone and didn’t know how to move forward. Blue offered emotional support and did their best to help me fill the shoes my children looked to me to offer. My oldest daughter had gone to live with her dad out of state. After numerous attempts to help her heal the dark masochistic chains in which she found herself bound, I was devastated and my self-esteem and will to live were mutilated beyond recognition. I needed a miracle, a sea parting, walk on water kind of miracle. That is exactly what I received during Blue's healing sessions. Their intuition was impeccable, their delivery soft, gentle and nurturing. Blue is without-a-doubt delivering Heaven's healing. After working with Blue, I had clarity, a fresh perspective and began to rebuild my life. I began to focus on realizing my purpose to the fullest extent of its potential. This cosmic priestess of authentic self-expression helped me to do that. Blue is a miracle worker in the most literal sense of the word. Please consider giving yourself this gift. Blue brought me back to life. What more can I say? Thank you Blue. Thank you from the innermost depths of my soul."
