Clairvoyant Medium

Judea Star

Judea is medium, intuitive energy healer, and sound therapist living on the island of Kauai.  She has been working with and continuously deepening her study of the healing power of sound for nearly 20 years.  Much of her intuitive work is focused around addressing pathways of flow in the soul matrix and helping those who work with her to dispel, transform, move, and integrate energies for deeper healing. She has had a talent for playing and composing music since childhood, and shares insights and messages from spirit through song. Her sound journeys create a supportive container for exploring aspects of self with non-judgment, compassion, and clarity, and gently carry one back home to their grounded center, with a new found sense of completion, alignment, wisdom, and wellbeing. 

Patty Davis

I inherited my psychic abilities from my father and began connecting with the supernatural at a young age. At 8 years old, I became fascinated with witchcraft and began checking out books on the history of witchcraft at my local library.  I explored my psychic gifts, crafted spells, led seances at sleepovers, summoned spirits, and practiced pyrokinesis. As a very empathic Clairvoyant and Medium, I had to learn to control and respect these gifts. In my 30s, I was fortunate enough to manifest a wonderful teacher who taught and guided me for over thirteen years. Once I was able to trust and secure a clear connection with my spirit guides, I began to work directly with spirit. That is where I receive my guidance today. I am happy to share my gift with others and work as a conduit through which spirit can connect with my clients. I have the career of my dreams. I meet and have intimate, spiritual conversations with interesting people from all over the world and personally learn from every encounter. I offer psychic readings and teach classes. I am also a certified Aromatherapist, Spiritual Empowerment Coach and author. I have lived the majority of my life in California and currently reside in Northern California where the ocean and redwoods mingle.

Marianna Voulgaris

My journey had begun as I began to come in contact with the different energies Mother Earth offered. I looked at the plant people in the forests with all of their gifts, and how they don’t want to be different but standing tall in who they are. Mother Earth led to me a to place to open up to the bigger picture, we are all one, sharing the same breath, the same water, she showed me to always trust and let go as another season approaches. Mother Earth reminded me of the wisdom that I had forgotten, we are all star dust.  I began my journey with astrology to uncover my soul, my unique gift and my personal connection as I began to come to a place to trust in my own journey. I then began my journey as a healer. I am certified in Western Herbalism, Ayurveda, Chinese Herbalism, Certified Shamanic Astrology, Plant Energy Healing, Planetary Herbology, Flower Essences, Aromatherapy, Medical Astrology, Nutrition, Yoga and other physical fitness practices. My journey was to help others open to themselves, to find that place of connection and love inside. My journey has brought my connection in to myself so deep that I can see my path, why things need to happen for others to open and most of all to connect, to feel and to trust. As above, so below as within so without.
