I was born on March 14, 1972 in a small town in South Dakota. I was born into a family of 8 children and I am number 5 – the middle child. My father’s philosophy was to put the kids to work right away. Reason one, to keep us out of trouble, and reason two, create an avenue of income and responsibility. Well, in my opinion, his approach was successful. I held several different jobs/responsibilities since the age of 9.
After high school, I enlisted in the military. I served in the United States Air force for 6 years. All of the experiences I had while I was enlisted were both wonderful and rather difficult at the same time. It was a learning experience and I will take it as such. I am the person I am today because of that moment in time in my life. I am grateful for the opportunity to have served my country.
I decided to get married in 2005. It did not last. It is not that the person I married is a bad person, he is not. He was a gift to help me learn some valuable lessons about myself, it’s just that the path we walked together did not last for "forever" and that is o.k. We are still friends, and I am not being cliché - we really are friends.
In 2006, a shift had occurred where my spiritual gifts were developing – my intuition was getting stronger. Unfortunately, I was not listening. I was ignoring all of the signs. I was scattered and anxious all of the time. I was actually scared of my intuition – I thought of myself as a “freak.” At that time, I was walking a path that was not serving me or others at all. I was enabling dysfunction to enter my life and while doing this I was destroying myself and my spirit. On March 23rd 2011 at the age of 39, the universe sent a message to me. It said, “If you aren’t going to pay attention to what we are trying to tell you and change your path, we’ll do it for you.” Quite simply, the universe physically took me out. I was walking back from a meeting at work and a felt a pressure in the back of my head. I suffer from migraines, but this was different. Something was not right. Long story short, I was having a brain bleed, a stroke.
From what I understand, I had a 33/33/33 outcome probability. Thirty three percent probability I would have died, thirty three percent probability I would have come out with significant cognitive and/or physical disabilities, and thirty three percent probability I would come out ok, but I would be affected for the rest of my life (headaches, weakness, lightheaded – especially during weather pressure changes). Thankfully, I was in the third group. I am frequently asked if there are any residual issues, I simply say, " I am actually smarter now," with a smirk... of course.
My friendships drastically changed. My job drastically changed. I felt like a lone ranger for a very long time. I felt like I was losing everything and gaining everything at the same time. I felt the highest highs and the lowest lows. Sometimes so low I couldn’t function. It felt like a “dark night of the soul” as I felt I was being punished. Little did I know I was simply being prepared for something different.
After facing the potentiality of not seeing another day due to my stroke experience, I set out to accomplish everything I said I wanted to accomplish. Three months after my episode, I entered a university to complete my masters degree…and I completed it, along with a lot of other things on my list. The bottom line is this, I started checking things off of my bucket list instead of saying to myself, "well, I will get to it eventually..." I wasn’t leaving this earth without meeting my goals and experiencing all of what life has to offer. As I began to embrace me for me, and remove negative influences in my life, my intuition got even stronger.
Starting in 2012, I began to understand the messages from universe. Different people began to enter my life. These people were/are gifts by the universe to teach me lessons and bless me at the same time as I bless them. I do not look at people the same way. I see beyond that which is apparent, I see beyond the mask. I’ve had clairvoyant, clairaudient, claircognizant and clairsentient abilities gifted to me by the universe and they get stronger every day. Of course, I am still developing these gifts. There are several gifts one can acquire at birth, over time or in a large majority of cases... a brush with death. My strongest gift is claircognizance, then clairsentience then clairvoyance then finally clairaudience. I have just recently begun to tap into mediumship, however, I still have a long way to go.
Inevitably, I chose and was guided by universe to create my own website/channel to offer everyone what creator offers/offered me…an avenue to help all of you through learning and benefiting from the mistakes and the accomplishments that I have made. Of course I still make mistakes and I still strive to accomplish new goals. I am human and yes, I am quite driven.
Making the decision to share this part of me with the world was not easy. I don't care what anyone says, having these "attributes" is not exactly a conventional way of "being" or "thinking" for many people out there, nor is it readily embraced by the masses. However, every day I take another small slice of my power back. It has been a long road and universe has made itself quite clear on the path I am to walk.
All in all, here I am. I am doing what I was informed to do by universe and by spirit. I hope my channel and website inspire all of you to embrace your divine light, take your power back and walk your spiritual path regardless of who stands in your way….even if that person is you.
Light and love to you ~B
