From the Islands, To Hollywood, To Another World
When I was a child I never said, I want to be a psychic. My original goals were more artistic in nature and I pursued my dreams of being an actor with enthusiasm and success. But looking back over my life it sometimes seems as if this path was fated.
At birth my grandfather named me Kawena, a name I share with a powerful Hawaiian priestess. I grew up in the islands and was raised on land so sacred it was the chosen place for kahunas to teach the alii (Hawaiian royalty). That land taught me much, as did my family.
Most everyone in my family saw spirits. For us, they were as common as a passing storm: footsteps down halls, balls of light flitting around beds, glowing angels hanging on the porch. Never did my parents or the community imply that what me and my brothers were seeing wasn’t real. Witnessing the other side was just an accepted part of our world and the world of many on the island.
A life long intuitive, I connected more strongly with my abilities in my thirties when I taught myself (or re-remembered) a form of meditation which allowed me to astral project. Suddenly, as if a pair of glasses were put in front of my eyes, I started seeing energy and spirits. Needing to control my abilities and heal some deep wounds, I found and began studying at a premier psychic institute in California. I had never experienced something so interesting and exciting and became hooked. Over the years, I have studied at several schools and with a number of master teachers. Where, amongst many courses, I graduated from a two-year clairvoyant training program, a teachers program, studied a ton of psychology and participated in the one on one program.
In 2009 I began a professional intuitive practice. It’s funny how God works, because a few years later my comfort with being on stage, merged with my passion for everything psychic and I began doing live “shows” where I’d read the audience and do mediumship. In 2013 this morphed into me teaching the clairvoyant practice I had been trained in. Which then, morphed into founding and running the longest running psychic school in Portland Oregon. After 8 years I’m now writing books, going global and bringing the practice online for the world to participate in.
In terms of me personally I have an eclectic background. I spent years in sales and marketing, did a fair amount of television and movies in my youth and have a BA in Theater and Film from UCLA. Acting taught me much about emotion, personality, motivation, body connection and the human condition. In addition, I’ve studied various walks of spirituality from Christianity to Eastern practices. I have lived in Europe and New Zealand and have traveled, studied and practiced in Central and South America, Fiji, Australia, Nepal and India.
I have found that the clairvoyant path offers a synthesis and a spiritual purity that creates a container for all practices. There is no dogma, no religion, only the tools to see universal answers for yourself.
I can ask any question. I can look at anything. So can anyone who chooses to learn.
The clairvoyant tools have taught me how to release my energetic and mental blocks with more ease and humor and to create the life that I want more effectively. My goal is to help other people on the same path.
