Ancestral Eyes S2 E5 welcomes Ken Allen the "Muskogee Magi" and his The Wizard's Table cohost Mistress Bee!

Ancestral Eyes S2 E5 welcomes Ken Allen the "Muskogee Magi" and his The Wizard's Table cohost Mistress Bee! Our guest this week hails from Florida, he is the “Miko” Chief of one of the Muskogee First Nations clan in Wakulla County, Florida and an ordained Catholic Priest of the Magdalene Church. Utilizing his intuitive gifts and ability to communicate with Spirits since the age of 11, he sees the world and the use of different spiritual modalities through the lens of Chaos Magic. This form of magic ascribes to the fluid, non-dogmatic, principle of tapping into various spiritual and magical modalities as a situation requires, without being beholden to any one spiritual belief-system or construct. Leveraging years of study and practice in Seiðr, Voodoo, Hoodoo together with his Muskogee First nations healing magic, he serves his community in administering guidance, counselling and comfort through a "whatever it takes attitude" to get it done. His practice includes performing healing rituals, conjure, ceremonies and even exorcisms. He is a dynamic force to be reckoned with on all levels. He has launched his new Podcast The Wizard's Table in 2021 and his next episode is tomorrow, Saturday, March 13th with his guest Patti Negri on the RU Media Network LLC. Mistress Bee was born and raised in Washington State with two loving parents and two wonderful, and ridiculous, brothers. She received a Bachelors of Science in Forensic Anthropology in 2017 from Central Washington University and relocated to Florida in 2018. Bee comes from a Christian background and did not start delving into her craft until her early 20's. She has always had incredible intuition and empathic abilities and channels that with tarot and candle magick. While she is a relatively new practitioner at 26 years old, she is full of curiosity and a fire to learn more. Please join us as we are excited to bring him to our show. We look forward to having you tune-into our broadcast this Friday, @ 8 pm EST live here on Facebook.

Ancestral Eyes S2 E4 welcome Andrea Savar, Mystic with your hosts Teresa Sliwinski and Jean-Jerome C. Baudry!

Ancestral Eyes S2 E4 welcome Andrea Savar, Mystic with your hosts Teresa Sliwinski and Jean-Jerome C. Baudry!

Bio: Andrea Savarwears many hats in this life including mother, gallery owner, jewelry designer, artist and author but the one that she says goes to her core is that of a practitioner in the mystical arts. Andrea’s learning began as a child with a family that nurtured all of their unique gifts in a tradition that combined the Italian ways with the Pacific Northwest pioneer life and Persian mysticism. The first lessons in the old ways took place in the garden, where plants and their magickal properties were passed down from one generation to the next. The language of gemstones is also part of an enduring tradition as Andrea was often swept away with the family in search of unusual gemstones and antiquities. Growing up with gem importers for parents and a gemologist grandfather, the songs and stories of each stone have been present since childhood. It is the deeply held belief that woven through story, ancestral food and connection to the land, the mystical life is one that is best when shared with others. This has led to the creation of a one-year course Andrea is teaching with the Inner Alchemy Collective delving into the ways that we can work with the plant world as we would with our ancestors. Published Works: The Curious Ways of the Winships, A Curious Spring Fever, The Curious Voyage of a Lost Soul, Evolutionarium – Air, The Curious Coloring Book – Faery Forest, The Curious Coloring Book – Mermaid Lagoon Education: BA in Foreign Language from Seattle University and L’Université Grenoble, BS in Mathematics from Seattle University, Post Graduate degree from Seattle Pacific University in Language Education.

ALEXANDER CABOT was born in Havana, Cuba on an “old moon” in September’s autumnal equinox, he was the first child born to his mother. She had a miscarriage of her first pregnancy, arising from a hex put on her, one filled with envy and deceit. Alexander grew up knowing that he was born to counteract that spell and save his mother’s happiness and life. Living in New York, at a very tender age, he was taught the magickal traditions of a line of men in his family. Within that lineage, his great grandfather, grandfather, and father possessing initiated Masonic and the “Occult Sciences” presented a good influence for him to model himself to. Being not of English descent, he was genuinely curious and heart-fully drawn to British Traditional Witchcraft at an early age of eleven, through the writings of Gardner, Sybil Leek & Doreen Valiente. When Alexander became thirteen years of age, he was initiated in Palo Mayombe of the Congo/Afro Cuban. Then he began his spiritual studies of “El Evangelio De Alan Kardec” at El Templo; La Luz, Cristobal De Jesus and was crowned on his 19 birthday. African spirit guides carried him to be initiated into the African diaspora religions such as Santeria/Lucumi Tradition. He was the right-hand man for an Oriate, Chief High Priest. Alexander was initiated and taught Welsh & Gardnerian/NY Wicca by Lady Rhea throughout the ’90s but for several years after he devoted all his time to his profession in surgery. Having mastered that purpose for the “All”, he has personally decided to return to the craft and re-energize his spiritual journey again, starting on the Great Sabbat, Samhain, 2009. Being mentored, initiated and ordained by the “Official Witch of Salem”; Rev. Laurie Cabot, HPs, his communal energies are now in Salem, Massachusetts as well in New York City where he resides being a Third Degree High Priest of The Cabot Kent Hermetic Temple and an elder in his community.

Ancestral Eyes E24 welcomes Carmela Zambri Lamanna, Spiritual Medium with your hosts Teresa Sliwinski and Jean-Jerome C. Baudry! Intuitive Healer, Teacher, Coach, Speaker, Author and Medium. Through all of these titles, it is her deepest wish to provide peace, joy and love through helping people to connect with Spirit Guidance. This is what connecting with Spirit has done for her as well. In her 30’s she found her own Spiritual Mentor that assisted her in having confidence in the messages that she was already receiving. It has helped her find her center after a challenging childhood that included losing her mother at 8 yrs old, bullying, and confusion over her own spiritual gifts. She was introduced to Mediumship for the first time when she was given a Message from her Mother. There was an old man that sat at the entrance of her small town of Monteleone, Italy. He gave messages from spirit to people entering and exiting the town. Carmela was 14 and just about to leave for her new home in Toronto, Canada when he shared her Mother’s message with her. It sparked her curiosity and passion to learn more! As she married and raised a family she learned and studied where she could, but found her true calling when she found her true teacher. With guidance and mentorship, she found her passion for teaching and supporting the growth of those searching for deeper meaning and for their own guidance and sense of connection. For the last 20 + years Carmela has done her best to serve with her gifts by offering Hands-on Healing, Messages, Guiding Meditation Classes and Workshops, Speaking on the subject of Spiritual Work and Guiding Students in finding their own path to spirit and Mediumship. As an Intuitive- Empath and Spirit Medium she is pleased to offer a connection, guidance, and coaching. Her true passion is helping others find their own true connection.

Ancestral Eyes E21 w/ Dr. Patricia Robin Woodruff, Lemko Bosorka with your hosts Teresa Sliwinski and Jean-Jerome C. Baudry!

Ancestral Eyes E21 w/ Dr. Patricia Robin Woodruff, Lemko Bosorka with your hosts Teresa Sliwinski and Jean-Jerome C. Baudry!

Ancestral Eyes E21 w/ Dr. Patricia Robin Woodruff, Lemko Bosorka! Dr. Patricia “Robin” Woodruff is a polymath, author, artist and Priestess of Stone Circle Wicca (USA).  She is known in Pagan circles as Robin and in Slavic lands as Paraska.  Her Lemko heritage from the remote Carpathian mountains started her on a path of intense study of Slavic magic, resulting in her becoming a spirit-initiated Lemko Bosorka (a sort of shamanic witch.)  Woodruff has been immersed for four years writing the Roots of Slavic Magic series, while also obtaining her Ph.D. Having read over 4,000 sources on the subject, Woodruff can provide new insights into this ancient religion based on recent archeological discoveries, newly-revealed rituals, word origins and analysis of petroglyphs.  Woodruff has found her work aligning with the work of Marija Gimbutas in her cross-cultural studies of Old Europe.   The Roots of Slavic Magic series will be starting with a large scholarly tome on the Goddesses and Gods of the Slavs, but because of the size of the work, it will take a bit longer to be released.  In the meantime, Woodruff has recently released an easily understandable “shorter" version, Woodruff’s Guide to the Slavic Deities.  Coming in at 300 pages along with illustrations, it will still give you a thorough understanding of the various titles of Slavic Deities free from the taint of White Supremacy and nationalistic agendas.  If you’ve never heard of Perun, Veles, Mokosh or Zhiva, this is the best place to start.  And if you think you know about them, be prepared for a whole new world of understanding to open before you!  https://www.amazon.com/Patricia-Robin-Woodruff/e/B077J3L12K?fbclid=IwAR37y3JKJDzUccSolw3uhPARvvOgu9dbINAcCzJtSuDyq-GOFqGi8Aag6AE If you would like to be a future guest on our show, please write to us at jjbaudry@ancestraleyes.ca!

Ancestral Eyes E19 w/Shawn Gilmore, Paranormal Investigator with your hosts Teresa Sliwinski and Jean-Jerome C. Baudry!

Ancestral Eyes E19 w/Shawn Gilmore, Paranormal Investigator with your hosts Teresa Sliwinski and Jean-Jerome C. Baudry!

Shawn was born in San Diego, California. As a child, he and his family moved to North East Ohio. Where he currently lives with his family of 3 beautiful children and his wife of over a decade. Shawn was brought up Jewish with his family and converted to Catholicism in 2009. Most of his time is spent with his family; hiking, camping, playing sports, games and anything else to enjoy being with his wife and children.      Shawn is an empath and a paranormal investigator. His profound experiences growing up as a child and into his young adult ages are what lead him to research and investigate the paranormal. He lived his life being terrified of his home for many years. Shawn feels that if he understood the experiences differently, things could have been a lot better for himself and his family during his adolescent years.       Many of Shawn's feelings as an empath have been confirmed on numerous occasions. Even to this day, he is amazed when he gets confirmation on what energies he picks upon. Shawn investigates the paranormal in hopes to help other people understand that the paranormal is actually normal.   Shawn was an investigator and the team manager of EctoVision Paranormal. Where he led team investigations for private residences and businesses. He also took on the role of debunking the evidence that was found during the evidence review.    Shawn has investigated numerous private homes, businesses and famous locations. A few of the famous locations that Shawn has investigated include  Ohio State Reformatory, The Monroe House, and the Hinsdale House. Shawn also loves investigating parts of the Cuyahoga Valley National Park, other state parks and cemeteries with a strong history and where there have been claims of paranormal activity.     Shawn's true passion in the paranormal is conducting private home investigations.  Where he feels like he can help people the most. Shawn believes that most private cases are clients who are afraid because they don't understand what is going on and unintentionally provoke spirits out of fear. He believes in most cases, that by bridging the communication gap between the living and the spirits, he and his team are able to help their clients coexist with the spirits in their homes, together.     Shawn’s story on what got him involved in the paranormal can be read in Encounters With The Paranormal published by Haunted Road Media and is available for purchase on Amazon. Shawn also appeared on the Travel Channel in the US and on the Escape Channel in Canada on season 4 of Paranormal Survivor and was featured on several episodes of Haunted Case Files season 2. You can also catch Shawn on his podcast called Into The Abyss Podcast on RU Media Networks Facebook and YouTube pages. The Podcast also airs on Spreaker and is available on most other podcast outlets. Remember to tune-in every Friday @ 8 pm EST for our live show!

Ancestral Eyes E13 welcomes Sue Kuclick Arencibia, Olorisa y Yaya Nkisi, with your hosts Teresa Sliwinski and Jean-Jerome C. Baudry! Born and raised near Cleveland, Ohio on land that was Erie and Iroquois nations. Her ancestry is English, Irish, East Prussian and German, and fairly recent ancestors who were of Choanoke nation and Bantu. The East Prussians hail from a town called Jeziorany in Polish north of Olsztyn. Sue works as a mental health counsellor (licensed professional clinical counsellor) in the Central neighbourhood in Cleveland. Her practice is informed by her spirituality, by her initiations in Orisha and Palo. She comes from the viewpoint that there is constant interaction between what we think of as the physical and the spiritual, and what we think of as the living and the dead. It’s her belief that everyone has chosen their own destiny, even if they are not aware of that destiny. She doesn't believe people choose bad destiny. She thinks people’s Orí or head may or may not be in the best condition for a variety of reasons. Some can be fixed or remediated, and some conditions you have to work around, along with adversity in social conditions. That’s counselling. She was initiated to Ọ̀ṣun since 1996 in Canton, Ohio, and Yaya Nkisi in Palo for about 2 years. Her godparents in Ocha are Baba Medahochi (Iba’e t’orun) and Iya Aboyade, who is now Iyanifa and is called Ifálola. Her Ojugbona is Barbara Barrett, Osunnikantomi Egbenihun. Her name in Ocha is Ọ̀ṣunmilaya which means Ò̩ṣún wife of Orunmila. She has received Iṣe’Fá (Hand of Orula) from Baba Wande Abimbola, Awise Ni Agbáyé. Her first ceremonies were done in Cleveland in the early 1990s when she received collares, Warriors and Olokun. Her house of Ocha at this time is headed by Manny Urquiola, Oloyuoba, of Spring Hill, Florida. She also has a working relationship with her husband’s Padrino in Palma Soriano, Cuba. She has travelled to Cuba quite a few times and as a result, her Spanish speaking abilities are pretty good.

For over 20 years now he has diligently served my community as a healer, diviner, educator, and steward of indigenous spiritual tradition. Before becoming a respected leader in the tradition, he underwent many years of study and practice as an Ifa priest (Babalawo), communicating with the Spirit of Destiny known as Orunmila in order to divine a person’s destiny and, when needed, make edits or changes to this destiny through ritual (or, ebo). As a leader within this culture and tradition, he also specialized in various other forms of divination such as mirror and water gazing, cowry divination and other mystical spiritual disciplines in order to assist devoted seekers to find working solutions to many of life’s various challenges.
