it is an honor to meet you

A sacred plant

Heather (Calluna Vulgaris) is one of the sacred plants of the Druids and is sacred in Gaelic and Celtic Lore. White Heather is thought to bring luck and protection from harm. Beloved by the bees in Scotland, honey from Heather is prized and unique. Heather is a medicinal plant, resilient and rugged, with petite and delicate flowers and is one of the plants thought to open portals to the faery realms. Bundles of Heather were burned to purify spaces and cleanse them of evil spirits and Heather is also associated with solitude, admiration, and beauty. Heather has been used for thousands of years in home making and was commonly used as a broom and is thus associated with cleansing of space, healing and homelands. Ruled by Venus, sacred to Isis and the Gallic Heather Goddess - Uroica (pronounced OO-rah), Heather is associated with The Melissae Priestesses, mountains and bees.

A Bridge to Understanding

Heather has felt the hum of the earth since she can remember. She is an empath, a seer, a sensitive compass of compassion, and a 'Rosetta Stone' for the soul. She feels the trees breathe, senses the subtle energies of the spirits, and communes with animals and the stars. She never needed to learn about the web of existence, it is in all she feels and sees. Pained by the loss of the trees, the death of the plants and animals, the violence of humankind, and the increasingly polluted waters, soil, and sky, she studied science and systems, then law and policy, desperate to find a way to reconnect people to themselves, the Earth, and source, desperate to stop the madness. It wasn't until she took the leap to study the art of acting that she started to more deeply understand humanity... and their sorrowful yet sweet, and beautiful yet wounded hearts. She discovered that it was in fact through the human heart-space that she might be able to be of service and contribute to the great collective healing so many of us are seeking. By listening deeply, sharing stories, and providing people with a pathway to remember their strength and their heart-origin; their true, beautiful, complete, sovereign selves. It was stories of source, connection and hope she was seeking. Stories, the great collective language of humanity. Source, the great collective consciousness of existence. It was through myth and mystery, wonder and divinity, the languages of plant, stone, and spirit that she had heard all her life that would be her act of service, told through tales, poems, and stories informed by mythic wisdom whose fabric is woven through all time, all cultures, and all human experience.

On spirit

Heather honors her lineages and teachers, and feels that everything is inspirited, has a voice, and is deeply and profoundly connected. It is her life's dedication to work in tandem with the mystic guides and her highest self, and to be a wayfinder and storyteller, shining lights on the many paths offered to us to return to our heart homes, and to support each person in building bridges back to their own healed, whole, authentic, and true selves. 


On Shadow and Pain

"I have walked the dark paths. I have faced death. I have suffered years of abuse and neglect. I understand what hopelessness and deep, desperate, loneliness and depression feel like. I know what it feels like to be so close to giving up, that the thought of taking another step, or breath, is as painful as having your skin torn from your body. And slowly, intentionally, and with deep care and support, I've also healed. I've explored. I've learned. And I have loved. I now offer myself, and my life forward in service of all beings, so I might support them in discovering the exquisite resiliency of their being.

There is an eternally hopeful part of myself that believes we can make better choices, healing and collaborative decisions, informed by guidance that is deeper and greater than our knowing, and collectively work to heal ourselves and in turn our beautiful, magnificent, and incredibly special ocean planet, Earth. Our home. Our mother. Our heart.

I hold the hearts of the sentients. I have faith in the hearts of humanity to heal and be whole. Only through community will we succeed."

a few kind words

ever humbled & deeply honored

Heather is blessed with an outstanding gift of sight. With compassion, clarity, and love, she helps her clients see the many layers around their question or situation that were previously inaccessible. A reading with Heather is a gift from the depths that continues unfolding in the weeks to come. I highly recommend her to anyone who is at a crossroads in their life.

- rayann gordon

Heather has been providing me with shamanic counseling and healing for many years now, and I’m beyond grateful for her support. Her clarity of sight is a rare gift, and I always know I can trust what comes through her. Heather’s ability to see into the heart of the matter is powerful—whether related to the energy body, your guides and relationship to the spirit world, difficulties and challenges, or your path and purpose in this life. She delivers healing and wisdom with a fearless, get to truth of it vibe, complimented with truly unconditional compassion, free from any judgment. Heather is one of the most intuitive, accurate, ethical, and compassionate practitioners I know, and I highly recommend her.

- juniper stokes

Heather has clear and deep connections with a multitude of benevolent and loving helping spirits.  She is masterful at delivering their messages with compassion, empowerment, and warmth.  Her ability to hold safe and sacred space with humility, curiosity, and grace is profound.  Her healing works its magic and mystery on so many levels, and I am grateful for her ability to bring this through so beautifully.  I feel brighter after talking with her and working with her.
