ABOUT VANESSA (Owner): Spirit Medium, Psychopomp (Ghost Rescuer), Intuitive Healer, Shamanic & Pagan Practitioner, Folk Magic Practitioner, Paranormal Investigator.

Hello!  Here is a little bit about me.  I am a down-to-earth spirit medium, psychopomp, folk witch, pagan and shamanic practitioner, and energy healer, who believes that each of us is here to contribute to our world in beautiful and unique ways.  I see the magic and spirit in all things and believe that of us is an incredible, intuitive and magical being.  I hope to share this perspective with you through my store and services.

Like many intuitives, I come from a spirited family line. On my mother’s side, my great-grandmother Matilda read Lenormand and gypsy cards. I feel very blessed to have inherited her original set of Lenormand oracle cards from 1905. They are one of my most prized ancestral possessions. My maternal grandmother Francis saw spirits her entire life – and my father, was born an astral traveler who grew up with out-of-body experiences and shadow figures from the time he was very young. He often tells the story of waking up one night floating on the ceiling and watching his parents come into his room to check on him! All of these intuitive gifts manifested in me from a very young age. I grew up seeing spirits, and as I got older, these experiences became more intense until I decided to discover why the spirit world was calling me. I started my journey in mediumship but over time fell in love with shamanic practice and folk healing and magic. All of these experiences have blended into how I do my spiritual and healing work.
