Hey beautiful soul! I am Caro and I am a passionate creatress deeply in love with the diversity of self-expression, empowering people to live a life in alignment with their soul. I serve as a soul guide, shamanic practitioner, singer, sound healer and artist to create beauty and inspire people to embrace who they are and to use their unique gifts for the benefit of all.
I love music, exotic instruments, art, design, crystals, earthy things, animals, Hawaii, my grey burmese cat Cairo; my life is intense, raw and authentic. It is not perfect but I embrace myself for who I am and I wish for you to embrace your uniqueness too. I believe in the healing power of bold self-love and daring to be real - the raw, vulnerable and wonderful soul that you are! I have many passions which have one thing in common - they are about expressing myself and birthing something into this world that is bigger than me. So I flow with creating music, design and art, photography, videos and writings and I hope that my creations inspire you to express yourself as well - from your heart!
If you distill all spiritual teachings into one sentence, it would be: "All you need is love." (The Beatles were so right!) Or: "Open your heart for yourself and others". And follow the guidance that it gives you for it is your sacred compass to navigates you through this human experience. Even when these nudges seem scary.
My guidance has lead me from Germany, where I grew up and studied art, design and voice, to Hawaii, where I have been initiated as a sound healer to New Zealand where I have been trained as a shamanic practitioner and which is now my home base for further expansion. It has been a pretty epic (and very rough) journey that has taught me so much that I am passionate to pass on! As an empath, I deeply feel what people are going through. And I believe in their innate strength to go through whatever they need to go through to grown and shine!
My own awakening journey and studies with powerful healers, teachers and shamans from all over the world have provided me with a broad base of understanding to offer you compassionate support on your journey.
If you feel the calling to work with me, get in touch. I'd be honored to be your guide.
Much love, Carolin
First things first - What is a shaman, actually? The definition I resonate the most with is: "A shaman is a mediator of souls between worlds." Shamans are people with the ability to perceive things most people don't. The shaman can enter an altered state at will (some use plant medicine for this but I don't - I work with intention and sound), retrieve wisdom and information from other dimensions and then apply that to bring positive change and improve the quality of the life of those he works with. Shamanism has always been about results and very practical.
I've been interested in shamanism for a long time. It is honoring the earth, it connects with animals and nature and feels very grounded. But I've been reluctant for many years to follow this calling and actually do the work. It was scary to me. I just wanted to be "normal" and do what my ego wants me to do! Surrendering? Nooo! ;)
But the calling is the calling and it kept knocking at my door. I had a series of dreams, visions, spirit guide messages over the years and the relentless nudge to move into this direction. And a couple of the nudges have been near death experiences.
Interestingly, I first connected with my real life shaman mentor Shaman Jon Rasmussen in a dream. It was one of these very vivid dreams that feel absolutely real. When I woke up, I knew I had to get in touch and speak to him personally. And that is what we did and he started working with me. It then just happened to align that he suggested to personally train me in shamanic energy medicine as he saw my potential when I did shamanic sound medicine work for him.
So my task was to heal myself first, to track my wounds of the past and transform them into sources of strength. That is called the process of building my mesa, my shaman medicine bundle filled with 13 khuyas, the sacred stones that now assist in my clients healing.
And that process of shamanic training had me peel many layers of my identity away. It was a true death & rebirth experience. But it was also extremely beautiful. Knowing who I am at my core. Knowing I am always supported and carried by spirit, through this life and beyond. My experiences have given me a great deal of compassion and the desire to hold space for the transformation that wants to happen within the people that are called to me.
Finishing the training and receiving the initiation rites was so profound, that moment of remembering how sacred this work is and how grateful I am to be alive, ready to serve from my heart.
Dark night of the soul - I know what it is like. I have been there.
People told me to just think positive thoughts and get over it. But I found relief in another, unexpected way ...
This is my journey from being a shy little girl singing on a swingset to becoming a touring musician & teacher to following my calling as an intuitive singer and soundworker ...
I hold a Diploma degree in Fine Arts but hadn't touched a pen since my graduation. My joy had been totally drained by the academic art world with it's do's and don'ts. So I stopped. I though I was done with art for good. And then things started happening ...
