Ever since I was 8 years old, Back to the Future has been my favorite movie. I was so enthralled by the idea of time travel. Now, I do it all the time.
As a kid, I was always able to tune into energies but I never trusted them. I didn’t know how to control this power inside of me, so I feared it and tried to push it down. “Conceal, don’t feel” was the motto. I ended up concealing the very thing that made me shine.
I always knew I was destined for greatness. I just had no idea how that could ever truly become reality especially when I no longer felt like I could be me.
The world shut down the day before my wedding. Everything was cancelled. I was devastated. Ended up getting married in my parents’ front yard on a whim that day, March 21, 2020.
I felt like God dangled and taken away this gorgeous day that I had envisioned daily for not only the 18 months of planning it but also for the last 20 years. Every girl dreams of their wedding day.
This was supposed to be the day when I would finally be able to shine again. It made me question everything.
I began my spiritual journey! I learned about everything I could get my hands on about witchcraft, religion, and spirituality, which in essence are just different perspectives of the same thing. TikTok and YouTube were my best friends.
I developed my Reality Theory around this time but I had no one to share it with.
This time in my life is explained further in my book, Monterai: Passage through Water (Ch 5).
On the drive to Laughlin, NV for Labor Day, A warm but firm voice told me to start a podcast and to name it Grounded Spirits.
I felt like I had no choice but to obey, I created the website and released the first episode on the 10th. I was so nervous. I didn't even introduce myself. My name nor picture could be found.
I didn't have money, or time, or confidence but I made it happen. I posted nearly every week since then. This has been the only "job" I have been able to commit to for over a year. It was like it was meant to be.
This was the first logo!
Up until this point, all of the episodes were just me documenting my spiritual journey by way of learning about the chakras. I later published a book called Unlocking the Chakras on April 2022. I also led a mini-book club on my favorite book of all time, The Game of Life and How to Play it by Florence Scovel Shin.
On August 1st, the 44th episode came out featuring my first guest on the show, Roger Butts. We discussed his book, Seeds of Devotion.
I quit my teaching job and went all in on Grounded Spirits. This was a big time of change in my life. I bought my first house. I left a profession that I loved deeply for almost a decade.
It was scary but exciting. I knew everything was going to work out. I started actually believing in myself and the potential of Grounded Spirits.
I designed this new logo by hand! It was a new era of the show with a newfound confidence that I had acquired while continually uncovering new parts of my soul.
On the podcast, I became very interested in the spirituality of sex and how to embrace being sexual beings. Because of this tangent of my spiritual journey, I became an author! My first book was, All About Sex. It was published on April 23, 2022.
A month later, I published my third book and first guided journal called Believe: A journey into yourself. I used my love and skills of lesson planning from teaching all those years to make this book an amazing compilation of resources and activities that helped me along my journey into myself. Where the podcast discussed them as I experienced them, the book neatly organized the journey.
I then published the following books:
Monterai on July 13th
Learn to Dream on July 26th
Dare to Dream on July 29th
All About Weed on December 12th
2023 Astrological Planner/Journal November 27th

Grounded Spirits had a makeover inside and out at the beginning of 2023.
On the inside, the tagline changed from "a place to learn about nature, creativity, and yourself" to "a place to explore the spiritual side of self-expression". At first, we were focused on expressing through the mind, body, and spirit. Now, we are focused on how the zodiac signs express themselves.
On the outside, Grounded Spirits' colors came alive. Interestingly, as I dug my way out of my darkness and found myself spiritually, Grounded Spirits' logo went from dark colors to lighter ones.
