Amanda's writing

My very human journey is shaped at every step by my connection to — or, at times, distance from — divine guidance. When I started to let back in the tamped-down gift I’d had as a child to hear messages from spirit, I turned to relentlessly studying that gift instead of dwelling on self-doubt. Considering the spiritual viewpoints of teachers from Albert Einstein to Thich Nhat Hanh and friends and strangers around me remains essential to the scaffolding of my own understanding and teaching. With expanding knowledge of different wisdom traditions and training in mediumship, spiritual coaching, and Reiki healing, I find I’m ever more fascinated by this life’s nuances. Along with spirit or Reiki sessions and my groups and workshops, I explore these subjects and try to give voice to the divine through my writing.

Good mothers give you what you need most

Here in a time of pandemic is what our Divine One gives us: “Anything uncomfortable that you face, child, is forcing something new from you that you’ve been refusing to try. Did you hear that? Everything uncomfortable is stretching you, by divine design. The global nuisance of a fast-spreading virus...

Note of admiration to the Divine Feminine

Dear M’lady … You are so fine in those resplendent robes of silver and gold brocade and braids down to your round ass. You know it distracts them from your cussing tongue when the neighbor has left his double-wide chariot three feet over the line and in your way all...
