As a child Natalie was always connected to Spirit and would see Elemental beings but she was always told that it was her imagination and not real. Overtime she started to believe what she was told and shutdown her ability to see the unseen realms. Around the age of 11, her family life started to become tumultuous and her safety net was crumbling around her. Her life was dramatically changing and she was struggling. While she was a teen and into her early 20s a lot of beautiful souls started to cross her path and offer support. She was first introduced to energy healing through Reiki practitioners and curanderas (healers) from Mexico. Many other spiritual teachers, seers, and healers started entering her life and slowly started to show her the deep connection she always had. She also was blessed to have lots of adults who showed up as mentors, therapists, and coaches who helped her navigate everything she was going through and heal from the trauma she was experiencing. It was the combination of those different perspectives that informed the way she started to see the world. It especially taught her the impact we can have on others who are going through difficulty and that hope is accessible no matter what you are experiencing.
Over the past 20 years, she has learned a lot from various healers and teachers from different lineages around the world. She completed her Reiki Master certification in 2014 in the White Light Reiki lineage. Natalie graduated with her Bachelors in Psychology in 2008 and after spending 6 years working in the corporate world, she decided to pursue a Master’s in Transpersonal Psychology. She was specifically looking for the ways in which Psychology and Spirituality intersect and integrate. This led her to pursue her Master’s at the California Institute of Integral Studies where she completed her degree in Integral Counseling Psychology in 2017. She completed her certification for The Emotion Code® in March, 2019. In 2020, she attended Psychic Surgery Training from Sergio Magaña Ocelocoyotl and in the Fall she attended the Sounds True Trauma Skills Summit. In 2021, she completed her training with the Òran an Rìbhinn: The Venusian Song Certification Program facilitated by Liv Mokai Wheeler. She continues to study and learn new/old ways of healing.
Over the past ten years Natalie has directed a lot of her attention towards Ancestral healing. She started to notice unhealthy behavioral patterns that were occurring throughout both of her family lineages. Her curiosity led her to wonder about the possible traumatic experiences that could have occurred that would have created those core ancestral wounds. Through learning the stories of her ancestors, she has gained a better understanding of the pathway to healing those wounds. Storytelling is so powerful in that way. She is driven by the desire to heal these core wounds so that future generations would not be burdened. She learned about a powerful ceremony called Ancestralization that Elder Malidoma Patrice Some taught so many in the west. After experiencing the potency of this ceremony and seeing how her ancestors became healthy and supportive because of it, she was inspired to continue to learn how to support others in these ways. It is what continues to inspire her to actively participate in her personal healing as well.
While pursuing her Master’s degree, Natalie lived in Northern California. During her time in the Bay Area, Natalie started to connect with and learn from a few indigenous elders & spiritual teachers who expanded her knowledge about Spirit, Ceremony, and Life. One of these teachers is Liv Mokai Wheeler, who is an International Ritual facilitator and Kontomblé Voice Diviner. Liv taught her the importance of ritual and making offerings to the Earth, her Ancestors and the Otherworld. She reconnected Natalie with The Kontomblé who are a nation of “Little” People of the Earth. The Elemental beings that Natalie used to see as a child. Liv and the Kontomblé helped Natalie gain more clarity on how to share her innate gifts with the world. They have guided her to remember who she truly is and why she’s on Earth at this time. They have also taught Natalie so many rituals and ceremonies, including the Ancestralization Ceremony and Divination. Natalie is so grateful for the depth of this connection and how much she’s evolved because of it. She continues to study with Liv Mokai Wheeler and the Kontomblé as her main teachers who she has studied with since 2016. While studying with Liv she has supported many healing journeys around the world, including Mongolia, Panama, Peru, Japan, California, Florida and North Carolina, along with many virtual ceremonies and rituals with people from all walks of life.
Looking back, Natalie realizes that while she was going to graduate school she was simultaneously being guided by Spirit to study in the School of Life to strengthen her relationship with the Otherworld (Spiritual/Higher Dimensions). As a result, she has learned a lot about ancestral healing rituals, healing in community, different energy clearing techniques, tending to Spirit by making offerings and being in reciprocity with nature and the Spirit world and many other skills that are needed at this time. She has had the opportunity to support Liv and the communities that she works with by bringing in her experience with clearing interpersonal ruptures between group members in ritual clearing circles along with holding space in a fiercely heart-centered way. In this way she was able to integrate what she’s learned in her Master’s program with what she was learning through the many ceremonies she was participating in. She was also introduced to The Emotion Code® through Liv and found that it is an energy healing modality that integrates all of the different healing modalities she has learned thus far. The Emotion Code® is an energy healing modality discovered and taught by Dr. Bradley Nelson. Inspired by the healing she experienced through The Emotion Code®, she obtained her certification and is now a certified practitioner. She sees herself as a student of Life and Spirit and will continue to learn from the teachers who will continue to cross her path and she resonates with.
Natalie is passionate about healing, helping people reconnect with their true essence, learning and giving gratitude for the gift of life. She relates to sessions with her clients as their own sacred healing ceremonies and creates a safe ritual container for each session. She sees healing as a way for all of us to clear out the density that trauma creates in our bodies and rediscover the true essence of our beings by reconnecting with our hearts and bravely living from that space. She believes in the power of healing both individually and in community. For this reason she has a plethora of offerings available and they will continue to evolve as she continues to dive deeper in her own healing journey.
