I'm a modern woman who wears many hats: priestess, mother, spouse, entrepreneur, writer and performance artist. I've had a strong interest and calling in spirituality all my life and became Wiccan at 12 and had my 1st initiation at 13. I'm a hereditary witch from a mixed cultural background (Afro-Caribbean & Celtic).

Other fun facts:
I love to travel and am currently on a world tour with my spouse and 9 year old daughter as a digital nomad. I've been to 12 different countries and I'm not done by far. All things ancient make me giddy. I do several types of martial arts and dance. I love and collect weaponry. Bast is my household Goddess and one of my 3 patron goddesses (the other two being Hecate and Brighid). I also have three patron gods: Anubis, Cernunnos, and Ares. My inner animal and main totem is the Tiger. Other totems and guides are the snake, the horse, the dog and the moth. I'm a professional writer and I write two blogs: www.arcaneshaman.com and www.roamingronins.com.
I am also a warrior. I'm an elder of the tradition. It is now the time for warriors to unite. The end of one world the beginning of a new. The sleeping dragon within us is awakening! I was first initiated by a Hopi medicine man way back in the 1970s. By that time I had kissed death and returned with visions twice. I am one of the three seed planters. I don't know if this means anything to you? I may be giving you too much information or maybe not enough. Please do communicate with me and I'll tell you more. I also be honored to learn from you.
Sunday blessings to you. I would like to extend a special invitation to you to join me on a journey of a lifetime. A journey toward a new era of consciousness as we approach the dawning of 2012. http://www.paganspace.net/group/2012awareness
