My mother and grandmother were both practitioners of Spiritual Response Therapy - a modality using charts and a pendulum to clear past life trauma. At 5 years old I was introduced to concepts like the mind/body connection, the existence of parallel lives, past lives as angels, and so much more!
15 years later I picked up a pendulum myself, and
my relationship with Spirit/High Self deepened dramatically.
I was convinced from a young age that my path was that of an actor. I studied acting in high school at Interlochen Arts Academy and then received my BFA from Northern Illinois University. After a few too many Midwestern winters, I packed up my station wagon and move to Los Angeles.
I spent a decade bartending, auditioning, and performing on stages across SoCal and occasionally meditating.
Eventually I cracked. I realized how unhappy, unhealthy, and unbalanced I was. I told the Universe I was ready to burn everything I thought I knew to the ground.
A few months later, it hit me like a shooting star:
"I was a healer.
My mother was a healer. My grandmother was a healer. I love being of service in that way...
I love talking about spirituality! I love learning about spirituality! And I really love the idea of being my own boss!"
I had been attuned to the first two levels of Reiki, though I wasn't doing anything with it and felt like I didn't really understand it. I decided to sign up for the Level 3 Master Course.
Afterwards, I started the first iteration of my business transmitting Reiki to people and animals. Faith Streng Healing continued to evolve until I recognized my niche was in the past life healing I had been introduced to as a child.
Now I combine Akashic healing, chakra balancing, channeling and coaching into 1:1 Restorative Spirit Programming sessions. I also host the 4-week Cosmic Joy Club on a regular basis and teach classes with Bene Mudra Wellness! I continue to live in LA with my jazz drummer husband and several happy plants. When I'm not working I am usually traveling, meditating, picking up a good paint-by-number, reading or talking to the fairies.
