hola bruje...

canto image- jaguar, moon, ofrenda

for love + justice

Kalli blood x bone is a portal for the ancestors + a sacred canto to remember our old ways.

Their breath enlivens us + they speak holy words- we are the answer to their prayer

…for liberation

…for joy

…for rage

…for peace

…and for justice.

The locus of my craft is personal + collective liberation.

Like most who engage with the numinous- I’m curious to find out what can be created when we explore relating with more-than-human kin.

I’ve been living into the answer for 20+ years professionally….and exploring since I was a kid.

Oh, one more thing….Ixchel is pronounced ee-shell. You’re welcome.

"I loved the journey. I felt completely held and was given very accurate information that resonated. The truth was delivered with grace. Ixchel's trauma-informed approach offered some deep + intentional space-holding."
"Ixchel helped me shift my dynamic with money- her work helped me get job interviews, free gas, money + connections. I LOVED IT. The blessings are still raining down!"

you should know

We talk about things that others may deem taboo- politics, war, money + social issues– because I believe it’s my responsibility as a spirit worker to address real shit going on in people’s lives.

I’m all for love + justice, not #loveandlight.

We politicize our craftliberation, rematriation + mutual thriving are our lingo.

I center bodies of culture in this kalli.

We don’t do ascended masters, empath culture, high vibe tribe, sitting in merkabas, or talking in light language here.  You can literally find that anywhere else on the internet– not here.

tldr: I’m not into New Age spirituality.

Extraction of black + brown folx’ ancestral practices is no bueno.

I also acknowledge the teachers of shorter term training I’ve had in mediumship, divination, western astrology and magic- Bobbi Langdon, Fabeku Fatunmise, Jason Miller, Sonia Choquette, John Holland +Benebell Wen.

++ I had been trained in Usui Reiki many years ago. Since then I have learned of the whitewashing + inaccuracy of the western Usui Reiki practice. Please visit the teaching of Marika Hamahata + her course, Decolonizing Reiki.
