I was born and raised in small town in Southern Ontario, Canada in the early 1960's in a typical blue collar family setting. As far back as I can remember I always knew my dreams were trying to tell me things. At an early age I started to write my dreams down, at least the ones I could remember on the advice of an Aunt. Most young girls kept a dairy I kept a dream dairy. Many of my dreams seemed so real. I had many deja vu's as a child and soon caught on they were dreams I had already dreamt. Were these dreams important for me to remember as warning signs or to tell me I was on the right path in life? .
When I flip back through the worn pages of a child’s hand written dream journal as an adult, and realize so many of them have come true. Dreams are so confusing when dreamt at the time yet so amazingly accurate years later. My friends have always known I have kept a journal of my dreams. Many of my dreams were discussed openly to them, hoping for a glimpse of insight from another pair of eyes.
Years later as I grew older my friends would come to me for help analysing their dreams. They were hesitantly seeking the answers for the secret power to slay the monster that haunted their dream time. I found this intriguing and challenging at the same time. My friends were always amazed of my ability to transform their jumbled dreams into simple meanings of current life lessons. I soon realized I had a knack for helping people with their dreams and would help anyone who asked me to help them. It was a hobby that was fun and interesting. I have read many books on dreams and tried my best to grow my knowledge of symbols. Realizing that my true gift was finding what the symbols mean to the dreamer at that stage in their life journey.
One thing lead to another and I soon was drawn instinctively to native culture and new age spiritual teachings when I was in my twenties. I love to create and make things with my hands like dream catchers, paintings, sculptures, working with leather. I would recreate dreams on canvas or sculpt animals that I dreamt of. I new in my heart all this had more meaning than just a dream and a higher purpose beyond my creative imagination. When my aunt married the Chief of a Chippewa tribe I got to experience more of the native culture and teachings, and started to connect my dreams more and more to their traditional teachings handed down for centuries. It was all starting to fall into place I felt, I was going in the right direction according to my dreams.
