How Woo Woo Realm Came to Be
Let me start off by providing a teeny bit of crucial background info about me:
I’m a Virgo sun, Aries moon, and Virgo rising -- the main components of my natal chart consists mostly of earth and fire signs. Said simply, the OCD and ADHD is strong with this one, which I’ve come to see has been both a blessing and a curse in this crazy wild ride called life.
I’m a Manifesting Generator with a 3/5 profile, so not only is my unwavering ADHD fueled by my M.G.’s “SQUIRREL!” tendencies, but my pessimistic and wary 3/5 profile has me sussing out anything and anyone new in my life, including my own brilliant ideas. The struggle is REAL, y’all!
All this to say: My mind is a very LOUD and busy place -- and don’t even get me started on the highly intuitive and empathic side of me that has me tapped into a whole other realm of chaos and fuckery.
Now that we have that out of the way, let’s get into how Woo Woo Realm was never meant to be but somehow came to be.
I had been on my tarot/healing journey for a bit before even considering reading tarot as a profession. For starters, I was completely in the closet about anything ‘woo woo’ and would watch tarot readers on YouTube secretly at night. I come from a pretty religious family and upbringing, so you can see why all things woo stayed very hush-hush for me.
It wasn’t until 2016 when I was experiencing one the most trying phases of my professional career that tarot became a crucial component of my everyday life. I found a particular tarot reader on YouTube who conducted general readings, and it seemed as though every single one of her readings deeply resonated with me and what I was experiencing at the time. It was as if she knew details of my life that no one else knew and was reading me like a book. I was hooked!
I hate to admit it now, but her readings were so spot on that I became almost dependent upon her advice. It was as though she was predicting what was going to happen in my life, with astounding accuracy and timing, while also providing me with sound advice on how to navigate the choppy waters I found myself in at the time. Looking back, I see how this difficult time in my career was most likely brought into my life to move me closer to what my true calling was: tarot reading and healing.
I finally bit the bullet and took the leap: I bought my very first tarot deck and committed myself to learning tarot like my life depended on it. I signed up for courses, Googled card meanings, and watched YouTube readings almost religiously. I was obsessed with tarot and how it afforded me access to information about myself and my experiences that no therapy session, self-help book, or venting session with a friend could ever have provided me. Tarot truly was the catalyst for my awakening and healing journey – and I am forever grateful for that fateful day I decided to bite the bullet and take the leap.
Throughout this time, I had so many revelations, rock bottoms, and rebirths that I felt compelled to share my experience with others. I wanted others to feel safe and sound knowing that someone else was experiencing the same scary-ass shit they were and that it was completely normal and beautiful. So, on January 14, 2020, I decided to open an Instagram account to share my experience with tarot and healing. I had no clue what I would post or if I would even follow through, all I knew was that I had a strong urge and calling to take the first step in bringing my crazy idea to fruition.
I had no name, I did zero planning – but, I did have a placeholder name that seemed like an ice-breaker that was cheeky and ironic enough to suffice. This, my friends, is how Woo Woo Realm was birthed into the world, and the name stuck only because I was too lazy to change it and, more importantly, the domain was available. Fast forward to today, I can’t imagine any other name for my little woo-woo company! it’s perfect and imperfect enough to get people intrigued and asking questions – so, I guess it’s a success in that regard.
I would have never imagined that I would grow this inkling of an idea and dream into a full-fledged business in less than two years. I have almost 6k followers and have served hundreds of clients around the world. To say that I am proud of my little “side gig” is an understatement. I am fucking thrilled that this “accidental” business ended up being the best, most healing, most fulfilling thing I have ever done in my entire life.
And that’s only the beginning! In the next two years, I plan to expand my offerings with on-demand courses, workshops, masterclasses, and 1:1 coaching sessions. My mission is to use my experience and wisdom to allow others to reawaken to their divine nature and purpose. This is what taking a leap of faith looks like. It’s messy, it’s unpredictable, and it’s scary af – but, I assure you, it’s the most rewarding decision I have ever made.
If you’re wanting to take the leap but need a bit of reassurance, book a session with me and let’s see what the cards have to say. If it wasn’t for tarot, I wouldn’t be here living out my dreams and offering you the same chance to bring your wildest dreams to fruition.
With love + gratitude,
