Ma’alob k’iin. In k’aabae’ Virginia. U k’aaba’ in kaajale’ El Monte. Good day. My name is Virginia. I was born in El Monte, California (Tongva Territory). My beloved mother was born in Zacatecas, México and my storyteller father was born in Cenotillo, Yucatan. My ancestors are Aztec and the Maya who came from the stars. They are my elders who continually guide me in healing myself and others. From their traditions and from maestras, I have learned to be a curandera who uses ceremony, hypnotherapy, Reiki, and Energy Freedom Technique (EFT) to support the healing of others. These healing modalities support a person in all levels: physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual.
A session with me begins with a platica, a heart-to-heart conversation, to see where you are in your journey. Each session is uniquely crafted to your needs. When supporting you, I practice an empowerment model. After all, you are the expert of your own life. I am here to serve as a facilitator and guide. I guide you through the process of accessing your Higher Self—the best version of yourself. The “Higher Self” is all-loving, spiritual, and infinite. With the support of your Higher Self, you are able to bring balance, promote healing, gain clarity, and foster personal and spiritual growth.
I grew up with my dad’s oral storytelling where he shared his childhood, the stories of my abuelit@s, and the Mayan version of Aladdin along with numerous myths and legends of our people. As a result, I am captivated by the power of words and use this ability in hypnotherapy sessions. I received my Bachelor of Arts in English. At the university, I facilitated workshops and taught poetry to various groups of students—centering my teaching to first generation, low-income students of color. Furthermore, I am high-spirited when I lead group hypnotherapy sessions and make medicine with indigenous folks. I love working with womxn, indigenous peoples, LGBTQA, and people of color as we share our stories and create medicine for ourselves and our communities.
I am constantly cultivating a relationship with the land. I am a promoter of making medicine for yourself and teaching people how to make their own medicine. I am deeply honored and grateful I tend an organic garden in Ohlone territory full of fruit trees, vegetables, herbs, and medicinal plants. Each day, I am learning and discovering. The world is full of magic.
Let’s invite magic into your life.
