In 2001 Ginny retired from a career in international security to focus on resolving emerging medical issues. In 2012 she suffered a near death experience when Fentanyl, a prescription opioid medication, caused her lungs to stop working. After this event she began to see, sense, and feel energies in very dramatic ways for which she had no intellectual context. She was certain of one thing only: If she wanted to understand what was happening to her she needed to live, and that meant discontinuing all prescription medication. In her desire to regain control over her own health and well-being, she eagerly pursued alternative therapies and began educating herself in esoteric philosophies.
After spending a considerable amount of time and money on healers she was surprised to find her attempts at being healed by others were not effective. During energy healing sessions facilitated by others she could see the energy moving but following each session the energy would always return. Her Soul made it clear to her that giving her power away to "Healers," those who actively engage in energetically "healing" others while simultaneously disempowering them, was no longer an option.
She was shown many lifetimes where she had chosen this path and interfered with the journey to self-awareness and evolution of other Souls. She was guided to learn from those lifetimes, integrate the skills and wisdom accumulated, and adopt a more evolved understanding of the "Healer as Teacher or Wisdom Carrier." Remarkably, she found this approach empowered others, helped them to remember the truth of who they truly are, and promoted self-awareness on an entirely new level.
Further, as she studied the esoteric spiritual philosophies behind many ancient healing traditions, she began to recognize that most healing modalities addressed only superficial issues, not the underlying cause; and some provided helpful information, but few useful or effective tools as to how to integrate the new insights in order to achieve lasting healing.
Practically, Ginny found it was much more difficult for her and others around her to be one with the "Is-ness" that the Yogis and other Siddhas (Masters) in the East discussed. People in the West were experiencing much more subconscious limitation, disconnection from our hearts, and required a far greater conscious understanding of their psycho-spiritual being and luminous architecture in order to move forward. In other words, she found that self-empowerment did not always present itself in the form of a single choice, but in the form of remembering step-by-step how to reclaim the power to make that choice, and ultimately their own sovereignty.
Ginny ultimately came to the realization that she had to take responsibility for healing herself through an ever-increasing awareness of herself as a spirit in a human body. When she made this shift in perspective, she was able to benefit from the support of those “Healers” who could share helpful information regarding the unfinished business of the Soul she could not yet identify within her own being. Healing was much more complicated than she ever imagined!
This sent her on a quest for answers: How does energy medicine work? What is the scientific basis or nexus of body and soul? What is the missing consciousness and self-awareness component? What are the differences between the many popular contemporary healing modalities? How does energy flow and why does it often manifest as pain? More importantly, why does it often return following healing sessions? All these questions and more were answered on her journey!
Since her near death experience, Ginny has been able to perceive multiple energetic constructs and communicate telepathically with plants, animals, and the spirits of those who have crossed over. As a result of this event, she spontaneously expressed an array of the identified "psychic" senses, the most prevalent being Clairvoyance – clear inner sight; Clairsentience – clear feeling of physical and emotional sensations; Clairaudience – clear hearing; and Claircognizance - clear knowing.
Inspired to understand and create boundaries around her abilities, she studied extensively and eventually became a practitioner of several alternative energy healing modalities. But these modalities did not teach about boundaries, the lack of them, or energetic self-awareness at all. They simply taught protocols and processes that many could not grasp, leaving large numbers of people to feel as if they had failed, yet walking away with the certification anyway. Ginny has identified many important elements that were missing from the various classes she was taking and has distilled this much needed wisdom into her self-awareness classes for everyone to benefit from.
On her journey, she was always encouraged enthusiastically by her teachers to share her gifts with others. After years of healing herself, and when she came to understand her abilities and establish appropriate boundaries, she slowly entered the realm of offering intuitive energy medicine for others. It became clear that many of her clients had similar life experiences, or had made Soul choices that closely resembled her own.
As her work evolved, and during her sessions with people, animals would frequently present themselves with requests for healing or messages for their owners in an attempt to resolve conflict or misunderstanding. It soon became clear that her healing path was going to include animals and she eagerly pursued animal specific training including body work, energy work and animal communication.
Ginny's primary goal is to promote interspecies evolution, the evolution of consciousness awareness, on our planet. She frequently travels across the country speaking at conferences, and appearing on podcasts where she shares her near death experiences and personal healing journey with others. She is committed to sharing the knowledge and tools she has accumulated along the way.
Ginny also shares the Wisdom of the Horse through her work with the Singing Horse Herd of BC, Canada where she serves as the primary Horse Wisdom Facilitator via Zoom. She offers both individual sessions and small group retreats. Please check out her other website at www.heartofthehorse.us for more information about her work with animals.

Horse Medicine Facilitator, Intuitive, Podcast Host and Change Maker
"It has been my experience that it is highly uncommon to encounter a person whose perspective and actions in life reflect both the ability to embrace the highly spiritual/metaphysical and at the same time engage in the practical, harsh realities of the “heavy lifting” of basic survival in “real life”. Over the past ten years as I have walked the path with Ginny during her recovery from mis-diagnosis, opioid dependency and near-death to a fulfilling and highly functional life, I have come to respect her as being one of those special people. Her message about this path is simultaneously spiritually uplifting and grounded in the hard realities of life."

In 2001, Ginny retired from a career in international security to focus on resolving emerging medical issues. As the years passed she discovered that traditional allopathic medical treatments had not been effective in addressing her compounding symptoms. More than a decade later these were identified as a combination of Lyme, PTSD and various rheumatoid conditions. In her desire to regain her health and recover from the toxic effects of various prescription medications, which at one time had caused her heart and lungs to stop working, she eagerly pursued alternative therapies and healing. She researched a variety of alternative healing modalities and traveled extensively to receive healing from many "masters."
After her early retirement, and prior to this journey, she pursued one of her life's passions: horses. She began rehabbing rescued performance horses with the help of a cadre of industry professionals. Much to her surprise she experienced, in a purely natural way, the unintended and beneficial therapeutic effects that animals, especially horses, have on humans. These effects are now widely studied and promoted through the increasing popularity of Equine Assisted Therapy programs. Being with her horses on a regular basis greatly improved her sense of well being. Although her symptoms of PTSD began to diminish her physical condition continued to deteriorate. As her health declined she realized it was not safe for her to train or ride her own horses and she no longer had the energy it took to maintain a ranch. After placing one of her own horses in an equine sanctuary in 2011 she immediately began volunteering there. For more than a year she spent what little energy she had grooming horses and donkeys until she no longer had the strength and could no longer drive a car.
A few years later she experienced a profound near-death experience (NDE) when her heart stopped beating. Even though she was ready to leave this life the horses and donkeys would not let her. They called her back telling her that she had something important to accomplish. Following this experience she aggressively pursued alternative healing to overcome her unresolved illnesses, discontinue prescription medications and clear her body and mind.
Immediately after this experience she began to see multi dimensional layers of energy all around her, and was aware that animals and plants reached out to her telepathically sharing messages. In an effort to more fully understand these messages, and her unusual abilities, she embarked on an incredible pilgrimage of personal healing. Over the years she has invested over 20,000 hours in her alternative education. She has studied numerous spiritual philosophies and pursued certification in a number of healing modalities (outlined below), including those of different indigenous peoples from around the world. She has read scores of books and traveled extensively to attend educational and training seminars.
Over the years Ginny realized that the individual skills she was being taught were only part of a larger picture. She discovered that because she could see energy she intuitively knew how to go beyond each method that she studied. She knew which healing modalities worked for her and those that did not. When a specific modality did not work for her, but seemingly worked for others, she dug deep into the cause and effect of distorted energies to identify blocks to healing. Because of this she was able to combine her accumulated knowledge and skill to enhance her understanding of the interconnection of body, mind and spirit.
Well into her own journey she began her healing career focusing on humans. As time passed she became spontaneously aware of the animals in her clients' lives as well. They frequently presented themselves in her sessions with messages and healing requests. This contact piqued her interest and caused her to remember the animals' message from her NDE. As a result she began to shift her educational focus to animal specific healing techniques and animal communication. Over a period of two years she slowly transitioned into working with both animals and their owners. She sought to improve these relationships through the release of the energetic imprints of emotions and trauma.
For several years Ginny eagerly immersed herself in the indigenous teachings of the late Benny LeBeau, also known as Rainbow Thunder Heart or "Bavado Tatun Corazon". Bavado was a Tribal Elder and respected Medicine Man of the Eastern Shoshone Nation, hailing from the Wind River Indian Reservation in Fort Washakie, Wyoming. He was also a member of the Spiritual Elders of Mother Earth, a group of indigenous prophetic seed carriers of North America. Ginny traveled with Bavado to study our sacred relationship with all life from his many medicine wheel ceremonies and lectures celebrated across the world. To hear a message from Bavado and learn more about his legacy, click here. For more information about his education and teachings go to the Earth Wisdom Foundation website or watch this documentary about his passionate work to end the drought in the mountain community of Big Bear Lake in the San Bernardino National Forest.
Since Bavado's death, Ginny has been an avid supporter of the International Council of Thirteen Indigenous Grandmothers; she has continued her shamanic studies with a Mayan Elder, Grandmother Flordemayo, and Jan Engles-Smith of the LightSong School of 21st Century Shamanism. Ginny first traveled to Australia in 2014, and was introduced to the healing paradigm and LORE of the Aboriginal people. She continues studying Aboriginal Healing and LORE today with Steve Richards, a native Aboriginal-Australian. She is also a Certified Bio-Well Practitioner (trained by Dr. Tiffany Barsotti), Heart Math Facilitator, and has studied with world renown healers such as Dr. V. Vernon Woolf (Holodynamics), Georgina Cannon (Regression and Spirit Release), Julie Renee Doering (Quantum Healing), Isa Gucciardi (Buddhism, Spirituality & Meditative Techniques), Michael J. Tamura (Clairvoyance, Spiritual & Psychic Development), Andrew Holecek (Death and Dying, The Bardo Teachings: Tibetan Book of the Dead), Dr. Paul Mills and Dr. Tiffany Barsotti (Personal Self Integration), GW Hardin (A Course in Wonders III), Donna Eden (Eden Energy Medicine), Roger Ford (Holistic Healing III), Carolyn Myss, Robert Ohotto (Archetypes & the Empathic Soul), Dr. Bradley Nelson (EFT, Body Code), and various other alternative healing modalities.
Applying her experiences working intuitively with people Ginny also works with rescued/traumatized animals utilizing animal communication, intuitive work, and she is certified in very specific hands on healing modalities such as: Equine Shiatsu Massage (for horse & rider), Equine Pain and Stress Point Release, Equine Craniosacral Therapy, Canine and Feline Acupressure, and Healing Touch for Animals® II. She has studied animal communication extensively, and has been greatly inspired by the work of industry pioneer Val Heart and the brilliant animal advocacy work of Margrit Coates of the UK.
From 2007-2009 Ginny attended the Vaquero School of Horsemanship in Redlands, CA. The school was founded by Dale McCarrell who was Ginny's mentor. Dale had a unique relationship with horses that was forged at an early age with the help of his mentors, Tom and Bill Dorrance. Dale's grandfather was employed by the Dorrance family. As a young boy, Dale spent summers on their ranch and was greatly influenced by their methods and philosophies. Later in life he dedicated himself to the traditions of the Vaquero. He did this in combination with the more contemporary, natural and humane horsemanship methods and sensibilities of the Dorrance family and Ray Hunt. Sadly, Dale passed away in early 2016. He will be missed by all who trained with him and shared his dedication and love of horses.
One of her passions is to speak publicly about the over prescription of opioids and narcotic medication, especially when alternative healing methods could be used to address issues of chronic pain caused by unresolved emotions. She is very active in lobbying at the state and federal level in regard to the opioid crisis. Her goal is to support the fields of chiropractic, osteopathic and integrative medicine and to promote other healing alternatives that can limit the use of unnecessary prescription drugs in our country.
Ginny frequently volunteers with professionals from many areas of the canine and equestrian community. This includes rescue organizations, conservatories and equine assisted therapy programs which serve military veterans, women and children. She also hosts Horse Medicine Workshops with her partners in Colorado, California and Texas throughout the year. When she is at home in Arizona she frequently hosts intuitive equine healing sessions with her own horses and donkeys.
Here are some comments from long time associates of Ginny:
"I first met Ginny in 2003 when she came to me seeking advice in my role as the Redlands, CA Chief of Police. During our initial visit her dedication to her community and not for profit endeavors became abundantly clear. I subsequently became aware of her other activities within the community [and] I continued to support her efforts throughout the years... She also successfully funded and implemented a charitable quilting and training program in the Glen Helen Rehabilitation Center, San Bernardino County's Women's Correctional Facility, for which she received honors from the San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors.
In addition, her grant writing and Community Wildfire Fuels Reduction Program efforts on behalf of the San Bernardino County Fire Department, local fire departments and several of the county's Fire Safe Councils brought our region much needed awareness and funding; and contributed to many homes and communities being spared the ravaging effects of wildfire over the years.
Ginny is one of those rare, dedicated and selfless individuals who will work hard for no personal gain simply because she is motivated to do the right thing. She is one of the most dedicated individuals I have ever had the pleasure to work with. I support her ongoing efforts to bring awareness regarding the current opioid crisis and our public health care policies. She has experienced a unique and trying set of life events that both qualify and motivate her to contribute to this conversation."

President, National Police Foundation, Washington DC
"I've seen Ginny go from a non-healthy individual, nearly bed ridden, afraid to leave the house even on good days and never drove a car or was ever alone to being an independent adventurer, exploring new opportunities and venturing out solo, traveling wherever her next adventure directs her. What a beautiful metamorphosis to witness. What a success story that I'm honored to share."
-- Diane V.
"We shall not cease from exploration and the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we began and to know the place for the first time." T.S. Eliot
Before you, the infinite, took physical form you were one with everything.
You possess the power of creation and pure love. Your wisdom knows no bounds.
Yet, our collective and individual trauma has created obstacles to remembering and embracing these truths.
Over millennia many healing modalities and protocols have been developed to assist us in compensating for these traumas and the resulting distortions.
It is time to peel back the layers, to reclaim our authentic being, our power, and remember our connection with all life.
To heal our hearts, to reconnect with our will and our purpose.
Are you ready?
I believe that my purpose is to help humanity remember these truths.
