As a counselor, Carey sought the next chapter in their journey, sparked by an Oprah article connecting passion to bookshelf contents. This led to an Integrative Energy Healing program, Trauma and Self-Regulation Therapy Training, and ultimately becoming a Cranial Sacral Therapist.
Transitioning to Cranial Sacral Therapy, Carey explored birth imprints, trauma, and Pre/Perinatal care with Myrna Martin. A significant birth dream and Kundalini process provided an awakening insight, navigating through confusion to “Clear Skies.” Presently, Carey finds joy in Renee Baribeau’s “Winds of Spirit” and exploring Astrology.

As a Shamanic Healer, Carey invites others to explore storms for awakening insights and guidance on their unique journey.

Can you share your personal journey of self-discovery and how it has led you to seek awakening insights and a deeper connection with your inner self?
In reflecting upon my personal journey of self-discovery I realize I was searching for my calling or higher purpose. In looking for the next step on my path I was consciously choosing what my higher self was affirming and guiding me to versus what my ego might desire. Open to the calling of alternative healing, I was feeling a greater connection to my spirit or higher self. I kept being guided inside, like in an inner spiral, and would experience aspects of myself that were unconscious ready to be brought to consciousness. Through healing and acknowledging these aspects of myself on the inner planes, I would feel empowered in the changes I wanted to make in my life. As these aspects were brought to the light or consciously acknowledged, they revealed awakening insights that were like lights along my journey, lighting up, affirming or guiding the way.
What specific signs or experiences have made you feel that you are at a point in your life where you’re looking for a new direction and guidance?
Specific signs or experiences that have made me feel at a point to look for a new direction or guidance is when I am looking or desiring something in my life and I am not able to reach my goals or move forward in an area of desire in my life. At times in life, it has felt like being in a maze, feeling blocked, stuck, feeling at a loss, overwhelmed, confused, or unclear on my next step or direction to go in. Whether I am experiencing this on the mental, emotional, physical, or spiritual, it is the feeling that things aren’t working out as planned or I am not feeling empowered, able to move forward, or feel fulfilled in my life.
Can you describe a time when you felt overwhelmed or stuck in your life, and what motivated you to seek support and clarity through the process of living your vision?
A time I felt overwhelmed or stuck in my life would have been during a part of my awakening process. I was experiencing what might be viewed as a Kundalini crisis or Dark Night of the Soul. Led by my own vision and dreams, I was being guided to experience the dissolving of my ego while opening and making sense of the multidimensional reality we live in. Moving through and integrating this awakening experience allowed me the clarity to access and live my vision in a grounded, connected, or embodied way.
How do you envision the role of inner and outer landscapes in grounding you, connecting you, and helping you find clarity and freedom in your life?
I envision the role of the inner and outer landscapes as the conscious and unconscious aspects that play out in our lives. As we connect and bring awareness to our inner landscape in a clear guided process, we are able to acknowledge what wants to be seen in a way that allows the inner landscape to shift and change. This process reveals the awakening insights and visions that guide us in the steps that when we are present, allow us to feel clarity and freedom in our outer present-day landscape.
In what ways do you believe that discovering and living your vision can empower you and enhance your overall well-being?
By discovering and living your vision, you are living your life clearly and consciously. You are aware of the unconscious and conscious aspects and patterns in your life. You are able to ride the wave rather than feel overwhelmed by it. You are present with awakening insights and visions that guide you from a level of consciousness that empowers you to access your gifts and live your vision.
What steps or practices do you think are necessary to truly awaken to your vision, and what outcomes are you hoping to achieve by doing so?
Steps or practices that support being grounded, connected, empowered, free, and clear support awakening to your vision. Accessing and addressing unseen and unconscious issues on the mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual levels is important. Exploring and addressing generational, ancestral, birth, attachment / relational dynamics, unresolved trauma, past life, or karmic issues are essential. By accessing and shifting your unconscious patterns and becoming present in your inner landscape, you are able to receive the insights and guidance to live your vision.
