Desiree Cervantes: “​I’m a shaman, intuitive healer and empath. A modern medicine woman with a creative soul and the gift of clear sight. A wild woman with a tender heart. I see magic everywhere and in everyone. ​I am the kind of woman they used to burn at the stake and I am reclaiming the word Witch. I am an Oracle Witch but I am not a fortune teller. I have a number of psychic gifts including the ability to see, hear and channel messages and communicate with my guides and yours. I am not afraid of my shadow side or yours. I’m great at helping people process raw emotions and release pain and grief. I won’t give you the answers but I’ll help show you that you had them all along inside yourself. I dispense truth and wisdom with honesty, a fierce tenderness and sometimes a bit of tough love. I sometimes speak to non-breathing people (call them what you like) if I feel that communicating is helpful or needed. I give myself permission to want what I want and feel how I feel. I am learning how to lean into my desires to uncover what they are trying to show me. My core desired feelings are vibrant, powerful, sexy, abundant, magical and wild-hearted. I’m an artist, designer, truth teller, mother, warrior and seeker. I am large, I contain multitudes.”
