Hello! I am Lady Raven, White Thunder Bear, The Wyld Witch! I have spent most of my life searching and discovering the many avenues that lead to true spirituality! The truth is that there are many different paths, and no two journeys are the same. After studying elements of paganism, shamanism, vodun, Judaism, Christianity, Candomblé, and Stregheria, I have learned that the path to the divine is as unique as each one of us. I have been a Witch for over 20 years, a spiritual herbalist for over 15 years, and a High Priestess for more than 10.
I am originally from Brazil, and as a child, I imagined my future becoming a nun. After 10 years in Catholic school (95% of my birth country is Catholic), I realized that my path was still in the spiritual realm but not in Catholicism or Christianity, for that matter. I was Blessed that my Grandfather was a Spiritualist and a powerful medium, so I was exposed to the world of the Occult in a very positive light at a very early age. His mother also practiced Italian witchcraft, being born in Italy. I genuinely believe that it led him to seek his path as a Spiritualist. My grandmother taught me to love plant medicine – her mother – my great-grandmother – was a pistol! She belonged to the Xavante peoples of Brazil, married a Portuguese immigrant, and passed down to my grandmother her love of indigenous practices and respect for nature. This love was then passed on to me. I only wish that I had had more time with her!
After practicing for about 5 years as a solitary witch, I needed formal training. I began my coven training under Lady Draekaa in the Coven of the Southfire Dragon, in the Wyven Moon path for 6 years, where I became an HPS. Lady Dragon founded this tradition (and Lady Draekaa’s teacher) after being a member of the Coven of the Black Madonna in NY and the Black Forest clan in PA. Once I attained my HPS initiation, I started my coven in Charlotte, NC – the Coven of the Blue Moon Dragon. After that, I was introduced to Haitian Voudou and had my Kanzo ceremony in 2015. Since then, I have been a member of the House of the 6 Priestesses, a house based on Haitian Voudou. In 2019, I took a year-long intensive, immersive Shamanism program offered by Robbie Warren, Otter Woman Standing with The Otter Dance School of Earth Medicine – this school has a foundation in the teachings of Joseph Rael, Beautiful Painted Arrow. I am now a certified Otter Dance Earth Medicine Practitioner in the Otter Dance School of Earth Medicine. After completing this class, I became a lifetime apprentice to Brandy Winn, Standing Strong Woman, the Co-Founder of the Otter Dance School of Earth Medicine, and Fire Dance Chief. In 2018, Lady Wyntyr, who attained her HPS Third Degree initiation in the Coven of the Blue Moon Dragon, and I founded a new Tradition called Ignis Spirae (Sacred Flame Spiral). I now lead the Coven of the Wyld Moon, and Lady Wyntyr leads the Coven of the Crossroads in our new tradition. To say that it has been one fantastic Journey is an understatement – and I still spend every day trying to learn more!
What I have learned in all of my training and exploration is that spirituality is not religion. It is about how we relate to the world around us. How do we find our place? Our peace? Our mission? All of that is part of finding out why we are here and where we are going. I offer online classes as well as one-on-one mentoring. I provide readings in Tarot, Oracle, and traditional bone/crystal casting to help you get clarity and guidance on your path.
My Shamanism path has led me to understand how our energy is interconnected with everything around us. We received guidance from our animal totems, spirit guides, and ancestors. In this path, I have learned to work with personal energy in a good way, to help my clients remove unhealthy cords, complete ancestor-clearing ceremonies, remove attachments and negative constructs, and Soul Retrieval. I love to help my clients connect with their spirit guardians so that they, too, can join in and be part of your inner growth!
I have helped many find their path into the divine. I have used my gifts of empathy and mediumship to guide those who are genuinely interested in discovering their own best selves. As a Third Degree High Priestess, Spiritual Herbalist, and ordained minister, I can help you find the unique path to connect you with your higher and best self! Are you ready to join me on this Journey?
