Art Energy readings..  this Friday 5-8pm. ( 15 to 20 min/$20)
What are these?  Based on the premise that you know your own aura better than I do, I have you pick out 5 water colored pencils. I then start drawing a picture as it comes thru me. This picture is meant to empower you, and  inspire compassion for yourself and others. It is meant to be a visual perspective of your spiritual self. Sometimes they come out in a 2 d picture, sometimes they seem 3 d. Sometimes they confirm what you  are working on, sometimes they say something that is coming  for your highest good in the future. Many times I am able to sense the angels around you and your guides...or maybe you are the guide.

It is a piece of art that Both of us create.
blessings of beauty and creativity,
