I spent my youth in the San Gabriel Valley. I grew up in a small home with 3 siblings and my parents until their divorce when I was about 8 years old. Then, we all moved in with my mom into a small one bedroom apartment. Ugly divorce ensued...custody battle...parents blaming each other - blah, blah, blah. Some of you know the drill. I went to school in a different city from where I lived because of these divorce issues. That is a story for another time.

Academics weren't my forte. I wasn't even a great athlete. But, I had lots o' fun during my wonder years (hint: I went to high school where that show was filmed). Popularity wasn't necessarily my jam. In a place where cliques are supposed to rule, our school was actually pretty intermingled. I had friends in every group as I was a social butterfly. I was the short, funny, non-filtered, perverted friend that was full of energy.

College wasn't a priority. I didn't fill out any applications. I never even took my SAT. I wanted to pursue cosmetology. My mom, a private college grad, shook on me trying college for a year without ever having to go back if I didn't like it. Alright, I loved it. I did that until I transferred to San Francisco State University - a cry fest for my mom. I did well. I majored in English and minored in dance. I also had way too much fun. I met lots of people and spent my time between school, work, friends, and relationships - as is the norm. I just had a problem with moderation. So, I did all of it like they were full-time jobs. I graduated and moved to Oakland - LOVED it.

I didn't know what I was doing with my life, so I thought I would go where I would do best. Since I had started working with kids in SF and had a natural knack for English, I applied to the University of Southern California for a degree in the Master's of Arts in Teaching - riiiight? I know. USC was my dream school, so I checked that box. Believe it or not, I was accepted and I was a natural. It was an accelerated program which I was happy with since I had just taken a year off and did nothing inspiring with my life. It was just odd job added onto odd job, added onto odd job... I moved back to LA to get my professional life on.

An accelerated program for a broke young woman who barely graduated high school then did pretty well in college was probably not the best idea. I was losing it! It was intense. And, though I was advised against it at the start of the program, I had a part-time job. Tapped out on loans, I had to get my bills paid somehow. Truth be told, suicide had crossed my mind. It was that stressful. Then, I thought of all of the bills my family would have to cough up for this loan. I lived through it, wishing every day for it to be over. Through all of that, hardly any of that expensive-ass experience truly helped me in the classroom.

"Tapped out of loans, I had to get my bills aid somehow."

I was a high school English Teacher for 6 years and a high school Dance Teacher for 2 years. One of those years, I taught both. It was fine. I loved working with the students and seeing their ah-ha moments. But, much of my time just had "ah!" moments. Spending hours grading and editing papers and customizing 3 sets of any given lesson plan was not my idea of a good time. I balanced out all my work with a lot of alcohol. I was constantly stressed, in consistent shoulder pain from all of the workloads I had to take home and had little time for anything else in my life. With all that care and effort I put into helping the students become better writers, the vast majority could not give two shits about it. I was over it. I started singing (recording an album), started a t-shirt company, and started making my job a lot less hard on myself. But, I didn't want to be another crappy teacher that just stuck around for the tenure security, though I needed the health insurance. I was sick often. I went to my doctor to tell her and she said it was stress from teaching. That made me want to quit even more. I then found a good doctor who told me I had NCGS (Non-Celiac Gluten Sensitivity - YES, it's a real thing). So, I quit because then I knew what I was dealing with.

This newfound "freedom" lead to more working - working on nothing that fed my soul, only my pockets. Teaching was more enriching than that. I was broke. So, I went back. I wormed my way in through independent adult schools, then substitute teaching. Finally, I thought I'd give it another shot. Damn, that was stupid! I literally fell into depression because of it. I was even only working part-time because I refused to be overworked. This bunch was a special breed - entitled and victimized. Again, lots more alcohol. I had started teaching dance that year with a credential; I thought that would be my saving grace and it was. I put my drinking on hold for the pills I was put on. I then decided that I would either have a full-time dance job or nothing. This job magically popped up for me. This was literally my dream job - I had written this down in college.

Three months of pills later, I was ready for my new job. I weaned off my depression pills and was ready for my awesome life in an awesome house with an awesome roommate. And soon, I realized how broke I still was. Like every other year of teaching, I had to add side jobs. So, this time, I added 2 part-time and 3 on-call jobs, all of which were physically demanding (mind out of gutters - I kept all my clothes on for all of them). Needless to say, I screwed up my body royally. As a matter of fact, it put me out of any job for over a year. As for teaching, again, the kids were either entitled or victims and never learned conflict-resolution; I was burnt out. So, here I am.

I haven't been able to hold a job for over a year. It started with injured knees, which had actually started in my feet via working my body into the ground. I couldn't even finish out my school year. Since I was going to be out of commission, I got the surgery I had always needed. I got double Taylor's Bunion surgery (that was for the painful feet bumps were on the outsides of my feet). I got those shaved, broken, and pinned so that I wouldn't be in daily pain.

My arches continued to be in pain. One podiatrist said it was Plantar Fasciitis and 2 months off for surgery. Another said arch fatigue and 3 weeks off for surgery. Boom! Give me the guy selling dreams. He was wrong on all accounts. I continued to be in pain. A year later, because no job + no healthcare = no doctor. I had to sign up for MediCal Still haven't been able to get my disability. My feet have been miraculously good for a few days then kept me flat on my ass again. I can walk all day, then by the end of the day barely take a few steps. They have been unpredictable, to say the least. Nearly a year and a half later and I'm almost good as new.

"So, this time, I added 2 part-time and 3 on-call jobs, all of which were physically demanding (mind out of gutters - I kept all my clothes on for all of them)."

I decided to pivot my gift in writing. This is where I am now. Instead of teaching it, I'm utilizing it for myself. I got some good advice to start blogging for healing and copywriting as my feet do their thang. And, I've been on a soul's journey you wouldn't believe. I hardly believe it.

This is me without all the juicy sex and vex for you to chew on. So, I'm in my mid-thirties living off of self-help books, a whole lot of guidance, and faith. Now you know why I feel like I have a thing or two to say about this thing called "life." Salud.

Aiyana gave me an amazing reading a few months ago. Many of the things she said felt a little shocking and she was pretty specific about stuff. I get skeptical when healers and psychics stay too vague during readings.


Aiyana was not one to mince words! Therefore, it has been easy for me to see results as specific things unfolded in my life. Let me tell you, she was ON THE NOSE about everything! I had a job that I loved at the time and she said: this isn’t the right place for you. I was floored! Then a few months later I discovered some labor abuse happening there behind my back.


She told me that I would struggle financially for a few months, but we would always have enough and if I waited it out things would be fine. Those were inspiring words while we waited through the rough patch, and now of course things have turned in our favor!


I could go on, but the point is, Aiyana has a very strong natural talent for this and she is super connected to the spirit world. I would trust her answer to any life questions because she’s got the humility to listen to what the spirit is telling her and the gentleness to convey the answers to her clients. Truly a magical experience! Highly recommended!
