I am a Reiki Practitioner, a practicing herbalist, an intuitive guide and Mother of two wonderful children, four fur babies and two winged ones. My spiritual journey started as early as I can remember with a fascination for nature and the magical things in life. I was the little girl with a pocket full of pretty rocks and a fish tank full of snakes. I got a tad older and stepped it up a notch. I started making little spells, putting dirt, rocks, gems, sticks whatever I thought would work, in a box and burying it while lighting some candles, finishing that with a strong "so mote it be". That sparked an interest in reading for me, I became obsessed with the need to know about these things. I remember getting a book on astral travel at the age of 12 and me and my best friend at the time sitting in a dark room in her basement attempting to meditate ourselves into another dimension. I got my first deck of tarot cards when I was 15 years old and sat up on my bedroom floor for hours that summer reading my own and friends cards. I loved asking the universe questions and having it direct answers in the form of cups, pentacles, swords. That summer and those experiences among others, led me to openly share these gifts with a few very close friends whom I trusted. Through my teen years and twenties I struggled, A lot! I had a tough time with relationships, I had horrible anxiety which created stomach issues for me. Being that I was so sensitive to the energy around me and other peoples energy, I would drink to dull my senses, because I didn't want to feel as much as I did, and in turn I numbed myself to the world around me. Over the years I have done a lot of falling down and getting back up. Struggling with unhappy relationships and feeling I would never be good enough or be able to accomplish what I wanted to. Telling myself on more than one occasion “ok Martina this is it, you have finally lost your damn mind, time to call and get the straight jacket because woman you are insane!” Then something amazing happened, I fell in love, WITH MYSELF. Once I started focusing on how I felt, what I was thinking how I could make myself feel good, if not all at least most of the time, my whole world started to shift. I was seeing signs everywhere from the universe, I felt like Snow White with all the animals that crossed my path. I was receiving confirmation that I was doing exactly what I was meant to. Soon after I studied Reiki healing and energy work. I then became a certified Reiki practitioner. I started to dive deeper into the world of plants and herbs. I don’t know why it didn’t occur to me sooner in life to do this, my mother is a phenomenal gardener and has the greenest thumb you have ever seen. Once again, I started finding books on herbal medicine and healing. I went to the Great Lakes Herb Faire in Chelsea Michigan. I was totally enthralled. I took classes by renowned herbalists for three days. I had notebooks full of notes and I met amazing and talented men and woman of the herbal community. I really think it was then that I realized my calling to help educate, empower, heal and protect as many people as I can, and I would do so with my unique and eclectic mixture of medicine for the soul. These among many other magical moments and instances have brought me here to this time in my life. Where I am skilled, prepared, knowledgeable, and ready to share myself with other like-minded beings wanting to reconnect to the earth and the power within that we all have access to. I pride myself on my ability to create, and more importantly hold a safe and sacred space for you to blossom into your highest potential. My offerings include, Reiki Healing and Teachings, herbal remedies, Intuitive guidance, meditations, sound therapy and rituals.
