What Is a Design Shaman?


  Listen On Any Platform


Do you have a dream for yourself, your home, or your family unit that seems far off?
Do the circumstances in your life make it feel next to impossible?
Could it even be so “crazy” that you are afraid to say it out loud?

What if speaking that dream quietly to the wind is the beginning of its formation in the reality that you know?

Does that change the action/actions that you take? Today? Tomorrow?

In this episode, I share with you my personal journey of tapping into my own soul-led gifts and vision: the process of becoming “The Design Shaman.”

Last year, I began to experience an extraordinary call to connect to nature on a deeper level.  As I did, I began to see parallels between the messages that we learn from our Earth Mother, the healing practices of wise women and men around the globe, and the intuitive practices that I use in helping clients achieve their dream spaces.

This journey went far beyond a rebranding of my business and offerings: the original purpose of this inquiry.

It was transformational on every level of my being:
Physical, Mental, Emotional, and Spiritual

As a result, it created a shift in the way that I show up for the people in my life. From clients, to family, to friends.

In this episode you will learn:

  • Where it came from.
  • What the word “Shaman” really means.
  • How it applies to creating homes, lives, and spaces we dream into being
  • How the design process can be healing on every level 
  • Where we can go from here 
  • How you can begin to shift your perspective and see your dreams come to life by using these ancient principles

Parts of this journey may sound a little kooky.  I had to get okay with that.  Which wasn’t nearly as easy as it sounds.  

It took me some time to begin to speak these things out loud.  

But there is power in voicing your discoveries
And your dreams
Even if it’s only to the wind.

I hope that my story inspires and enlightens your path forward. It is meant to help you begin to see your truth and how to step into it. 
To sculpt the life you dream of.

Here is a powerful exercise that can assist you on your own journey:
Break out of the “When…then” constriction that keeps you from what you really want.

I hear it so often, in so many different forms, from clients:

When the kids are older, we can actually have a better sofa.
When we have a bigger house, I will have a kitchen I love.
When I ___________________, then I will___________________.

This sneaky phrase of false belief can infect every area of our lives: turning our wistful daydreams into living nightmares.

Right now, you can begin your own transformation process.  Fill in the blanks below to discover three core agreements that you have made with yourself and that need to be broken today.
When I  ___________________, then I will___________________.
When I  ___________________, then I will___________________.
When I ___________________, then I will___________________.

Now cross off the beginning of each sentence so that they each now read: “I will ___________.”

We have been conditioned to sit so deeply in the “when I” energy, that we can’t see the possibility of now.

And now is all that there ever is.
Living in “the now” feels irresponsible at first.  It is contrary to the way that most of us were raised.  

But possibility ONLY EXISTS in the now.

I will share with you my 3 from my journey.

When I  finish up my current projects, then I will have time to create.
When I get my house completely decorated, then I will be fulfilled.
When I  am making 20K per month, then I will be legitimate.

Now my truth reads:

I will have time to create.
I will be fulfilled.
I will be legitimate.

Since creating this shift in perception, new opportunities have been opening every day.

Please give this a try.  It can be YOUR jumping off point.

You will be on your own path to transformation!
And living your beautiful dream.

Head over to the Community Page and share your new truth with other like-hearted individuals so that we can cheer each other on.  An even more powerful action, than speaking it to the wind.
