Let's get to know each other a little better...
I received my first crystal at the time I was born and Reiki Healing when I was 8 years old. Little did I know at the time what a pillar the energy of Reiki would provide me as my years went on. Growing up, I was raised by my father, a Philosopher and student of life and my mother a Yoga Teacher, Reiki Practitioner and Nutritionist. Needless to say, an awareness of metaphysical teachings and thought provoking concepts were instilled at a young age. By age 13 I was practicing yoga, taking classes in metaphysical arts and frequenting trips to Kripalu. While I was having these experiences, I was also going through the angst and rebellion of teenage years and navigating a lot of confusion and overwhelm being intuitive, sensitive and empathetic. Eventually I hit a point where I shut down and kept my spiritual interests in a box. From there I went on to college in Boston - which I'll just say, was like a shoe that didn't fit.
Eventually, at 22, I moved to Brooklyn, NY and within 6 months working in the music industry I found myself completely out of balance, uninspired and realizing I was working for someone else's dream. The feeling of Reiki that stuck with me from my youth poured through me. "Reiki" I thought. I was ready to invest in something that interested me again. Little did I know that the moment I signed up for my first Reiki Training a series of synchronistic events would then lead me to change everything, start owning my truth and living my dream. In my last 3 years in New York I became a certified Reiki Master, Yoga Teacher and manager of a local Yoga Studio.
Eventually I left New York and started my own business teaching Yoga, offering Reiki Healing sessions and trainings. This eventually led me to San Diego where I opened my first healing studio. Within 6 months, after another series of synchronistic events, I met the miner of the rare crystal and again my life changed forever. After a year to the day that I had landed in San Diego, I left and moved to Northern Ontario Canada to assist a crystal miner in every step of the process from the physical mining, to washing and sorting each peace, to a complete deep into their metaphysical prowess which brought crystals and their energy to life in a way I never knew was possible.
When I returned to SD after this experience I knew I had to share the magic of crystals in a deeper and more meaningful way. This inspired me to open The Kamali Temple Crystal Shop and Healing Center in Carlsbad, Ca offering energy healing sessions, trainings and experiential classes. During this time the Honor Your Aura Podcast was born as an empowering resource for students, clients and resonant souls to better know and care for themselves energetically as it is clear that we are awakening to the whole of who we are, the "seen" and "unseen" aspects of ourselves and our reality.
So here we are, I am delighted you made it this far and I look forward to our continued journey together.
