it me.

Hi, I’m Valerie. I’m a 30-something Sacramento native (4 generations deep here) Chicana, who recently left the corporate world to pursue her higher purpose in life.

I’ve always been connected to my ancestors spiritually but it wasn’t until 2020 (much like many others) that I realized how many spiritual gifts I really had been blessed with. I’ve been doing tarot readings since 2020 and my spirit team and guides and I have really been able to connect and communicate through my cards. It wasn’t until I started doing casual reads for friends and family that there might be more here and lately I’ve been exploring offering readings at a professional level for those who want guidance from their higher selves and spirit team.

This site has evolved so much since 2009 when I first started blogging on WordPress. By 2011 my blog was being read across many continents and had a small but faithful following which led me to be quoted in the Wall Street Journal for my opinions about Instagram. In 2014 I finally had enough of my dead-end job at a coffee chain and quit it to pursue my artsy projects (blog, youtube, photography) and moved into the Warehouse Artist Lofts which actually ended up pushing me towards giving it up to work full-time again. After trying some new things, new jobs, new people, and new websites, and new cities,I’m back to where I began and all I want to do is write about what’s on my mind in the hopes it helps others.

Follow me along this journey as I reinvent myself for what feels like the millionth time.
