Hello there! I am known as Goldenwolf, Golden Wolfheart, Christy Grandjean, or simply "Goldie". I am an artist who specializes in animals, visionary artwork, spiritual animal peoples, totems, and fantasy. I am a professional artist, which means I make my living solely off of my artwork. I travel the country with my friend, roommate, and art partner Sandra doing art shows and selling our artwork. We have a ton of fun! Being an artist is a huge part of who I am, but I am also a writer, a crafter, a sculptor, and sometimes a comedian :) I just love being creative! I am a huge, major wolf lover and much of my personal spirituality is based upon the wolf. While I love all animals (real or imaginary), wolf simply holds a special place with me, and I endeavor to do what I can to help wolf conservation and education, as well as making wolves a positive creature in our world. I consider myself a very spiritual person, and my spiritual nature is very important to me. I also love all the "girly" things in the world, like romance novels, tea, chocolate, bubble baths, sparklie things, bright colors, flowers, candles, etc, etc. I love being a woman, and revel in my femininity. I'm currently single and hoping that someday I can find the right man who will be the compliment to my female energy. Until then, I am enjoying being single, celibate, and in charge of my life. I hope to meet other spiritual people on here that I can connect with!
Lots of current New Agey self-help books by Deepak Chopra, Eckhart Tolle, Don Miguel Ruiz, Oriah Mountain Dreamer, James Redfield, etc.

My spiritual beliefs are a personal mish-mosh of many different paths, truths, and experiences. I was raised Mormon, but in a really liberal sort of way. I was introduced to and instilled with a love for nature at an early age, growing up in the wild, wonderful deserts of Southern Utah. Native American culture was always popular with my mother, and I seemed to pick up on certain teachings almost instinctively. Having absolutely no prior knowledge or teachings about Pagan ways, I began to do my own rituals by the time I was in High School involving the five elements and invoking animal and nature spirits. I guess you could say I was born to follow my path :) Over the years I have rejected Mormonism because it simply does not fit who I am, and have ventured on a learning journey that has lead me to many different views and personal truths. Currently I am a nice, eclectic mix of Pagan and New Age with a dash of just about everything else thrown in. I don't follow any one path or religion, I simply follow my own heart. I am what you could call an Independent Spiritualist.
