WHY GUIDED COMPASS?


My passion lies in the Holistic Healing Arts. Guided Compass has given me an umbrella to exercise ALL of my passions. I am a licensed Esthetician in the State of Ohio, Group Fitness Instructor, Zumba Fitness Instructor, Aveda Educator, Aveda Makeup Coach, and Small Business Owner. In addition to my small line of sensitive skin care products, I offer Holistic Health Coaching, Facials, Massage, and Oracle/Energy Services. I take pleasure in helping people. I want to thrive - and I think that is what we all deserve and need to be healthy. Working together with my clientele, students, customers, and mentors inspires me to continue to study. What leads me home, my compass, is being of service and making change. I aspire to leave a legacy of a woman who healed many and worked hard.

PREPARING FOR ORACLE & TAROT SERVICES


Come as you are, if you have a question bring it forth. I cannot predict the future. Card reading works with a medium channeling possible outcomes based on YOUR life choices. You have the power, always. I cannot communicate with the deceased or those living in the spirit realms. I work with Light and Life Force Energy only. My sessions are 20-30 minutes long, longer if appropriate. I incorporate various oracle and tarot decks, chakra work, and breathing exercises.




WHAT SKINCARE LINE DO YOU USE?


I USE ONLY ORGANIC PRODUCTS IN MY PRACTICE. EITHER PRODUCTS I HAND MAKE MYSELF USING LOCAL BOTANICALS AND OILS OR PROFESSIONAL LINE STARFLOWER ESSENTIALS. THE SKINCARE LINE I USE FOR FACIAL TREATMENTS IS STARFLOWER ESSENTIALS. I LOVE STAR FLOWER BECAUSE STARFLOWER PRODUCTS ARE HANDMADE WITH ORGANIC AND WILD CRAFTED HERBS AND ESSENTIAL OILS. MOST PRODUCTS ARE FOOD GRADE (WHICH MEANS THEY CAN BE EATEN!). FOOD GRADE PRODUCTS ARE THE BEST THING YOU CAN PUT ONTO YOUR SKIN. YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT. MANY COSMETIC PRODUCTS ARE FULL OF FILLERS AND CHEAP INGREDIENTS YOUR BODY DOESNT KNOW WHAT TO DO WITH. WITH PRODUCTS VIBRATING WITH LIFE FORCE ENERGY, THEY PENETRATE INTO THE BODY AND INCREASE RADIANCE FROM THE INSIDE OUT. YOUR SKIN IS ALIVE, IT NEEDS REGULAR NOURISHMENT AND MAINTENANCE. FROM THE STARFLOWER WEBSITE... "Starflower Essentials Organic Skincare is one of the few leading holistic skin care manufacturers in the United States, offering a complete organic skincare line of certified organically grown, food grade ingredients and certified organic, uncut, and undiluted essential oils and synergies. We take pride in the fact that we use no chemicals, propyls or parabens in any of our Face, Body and Bath skincare products. We package in glass rather than plastics to prevent the degradation and oxidization of our vital ingredients. At Starflower, our focus is on vitality and synergy. Our uncompromising, holistic philosophy is what makes us unique in this industry. We have created and entire line of natural formulas that work together, synergistically, providing a result that is greater than any of its individual parts. Often we hear of a feature's single "wonder" ingredient, and marketed as a skincare product. Each of our ingredients, separately, could be considered a "wonder" ingredient, and marketed as the core of a product line. Starflower blends these vital ingredients together to produce a far more potent and long-lasting result for the skin than any one ingredient could accomplish on its own. Also, Starflower keeps the micro-nutrients and trace minerals intact by not standardizing our herbs and using cosmetic grade oils. Starflower Essentials Organic Skin Care ingredients are rare and made from organically or biodynamically grown, wild-crafted herbs and cold pressed oils from pristine environments. As an artisan line, our exclusive, hand made formulas are processed in small batches to preserve potency and vitality. This philosophy embraces the process as being just as important as the end result." I CHOOSE TO ALIGN MYSELF WITH PRODUCTS AND SUPPLIERS WHICH SUPPORT MY MISSION WHICH IS RADIANT TRANSFORMATION WITH MINIMAL INPACT TO THE PLANET.
