I’m RaDonna, healer, writer and spiritual advisor.
Using tools of reiki, tarot, writing and mediumship, I help others heal.
Enjoy 10 truthful things about me:
Taurus Sun, Gemini Moon
An astrological conflict: my head floats in the sky while my feet remain planted firm in the ground.
I’m 98% Vegetarian
My quest to become vegetarian began one Thanksgiving while I stared down the baked bird in front of me. Even as a young person, I contemplated its sacrifice for the table of ironically ungrateful humans. Since then, I’ve attempted vegetarianism at least a dozen times. I am not 100% there yet; I sparingly allow myself my favorite cut of steak, which helps me turn down the everyday temptations. I’ve learned that starting somewhere is better than not starting at all.
I Favor Rainy Days
Thunderstorms soothe me and help me write. Sometimes, I’m even disappointed when the sun comes back out.
I’ve Never (really) Had a Full Time Job
I thrive in solitude. Being interrupted or watched disrupts my flow and inhibits my energy. It took me 10 years to discover this about myself. Now that I know, it’s important to protect.
I’m Making Peace with Spiders.
They’re miraculous creatures, after all. Message bringers. Protectors. Naturally self-sufficient. Why do they seem so terrifying?
“I embrace the label of bad feminist because I am human. I am messy. I’m not trying to be an example. I am not trying to be perfect. I am not trying to say I have all the answers. I am not trying to say I’m right. I am just trying — trying to support what I believe in, trying to do some good in this world, trying to make some noise with my writing while also being myself.” — Roxane Gay. She nails it. To be clear, this doesn’t excuse me from putting in the work; I will learn and unlearn for the rest of my life.
Natural Light Admirer
Something feels clean when the only light in the room comes from a window, even on—especially on— cloudy days.
I Don’t Dot My i’s
I Love the Scent and Shade of Lavender
Both calm my anxiety. One of the first essential oils I bought, lavender’s aroma is part of my daily routine, whether I sprinkle it in my bath, or use my homemade bedtime oil. A shade of purple has always been part of my personal and professional brand, and currently… it’s the color of my hair!
Church Bells Make My Heart Soar
These bells ring every hour during the day, yet I only hear it from time to time. Why is that? These rare moments make me think of Bells of Mindfulness by Thich Nhat Hanh, reminding me to be present.
