My Story

As a young child, I had a recurring dream for several years. In this dream, I was on a quest to save a Beloved, searching for answers, and finally asked God to help me… God did help though it wasn’t the way I expected…

This was the beginning of a lifelong curiosity in the spiritual, philosophical, mystical, and natural worlds. I loved sci-fi, fairy tales, adventures, and mysteries, and could often be found curled up with a book. I also spent a good portion of my life in nature which brought me a great appreciation for the natural world and its inhabitants. Bugs, rocks, critters, trees, stars, sky. And, I dreamed often. I wanted to know what the truth was about love and life, and why we are here.

I left home at a fairly young age and knocked around at loose ends for another several years. During that time, I realized that I was lost and depressed with a soul-deep sadness, and saw no way forward that didn’t include that pain. In my early twenties, I said to myself “Maggie, you can do nothing and feel like crap for the rest of your life, or you can do something about it!” At that moment, I again asked God for help.

And God answered—again in a way I couldn’t have imagined! I was introduced to a therapist who also conducted a group where the members shared their dreams. The therapist used dreamwork to discover and understand the answers found in our subconscious and soul. I joined the group and subsequently worked with this therapist one-on-one for a few years.

This work saved my life. I came out of the dreamwork with a renewed sense of wonder about myself and my life, and the depression and sadness had lifted. Unfortunately, this wonderful woman left earth too soon so I was only able to work with her for a few years. Since that time, I have experienced life’s joys and challenges, as we all do. I have sought out others (blessed mentors I give thanks for as well!) when I wanted help and support.

However, I will tell you that I was never again as sad, lost, and depressed as I had been prior to the start of my journey with dreamwork.

Since then I have been a seeker and student and have loved sharing what I learned with others. I have spent many hours listening and sharing with those who were looking for support around understanding their dreams and the situations in their lives. In addition, I worked with Reiki as a massage therapist, crafted and restored stained glass windows, and created glass lampworked beads and jewelry. I have also worked in “The Office.” I am now certified as a Teacher of Dreamwork, a graduate of Martha Beck’s Wayfinding Life Coach training (working toward certification), and a certified Biddy Tarot Advisor.

After years of tending to my dreams, and the symbols and synchronicities that happen in waking life (the waking dream), I realized I have an intuitive gift for understanding and seeing how the filaments of Light and Life weave together in our lives, and the beliefs, blocks, and shadows that hold us back from our soul’s guidance.

I support you in seeing (and believing!) where the Light can enter your life and look forward to hearing your story!

Peace and Hugs,
Maggie
