The Magical Practitioner
Vanessa Baltodano, Founder of Come Full Circle, is a Certified Crystal Healing Therapist, Tarot Reader, teacher, and Dream Interpreter. Since youth Vanessa has been a lucid dreamer. After her father passed in '09 and even more so after her mother passed in '14, Vanessa’s dreams became increasingly vivid and intense. Regular visits from her parents and spirit guides led Vanessa to explore a path of crystals, magic and metaphysics. Leaving her corporate job in '15, Vanessa embarked on her journey as a magical practitioner fully committed to life in service of the greater good. Vanessa has the privilege of working, learning, and performing ceremonial magic with remarkable spiritual leaders and teachers including Starhawk, Andras Corban-Arthen, Patrick McCollum, the McCollum Foundation, the World Peace Violin, Orion Foxwood, R.J. Stewart and Naha Armády. Vanessa connects strongly with the Faery Tradition through personal practice and conducts powerful dream interpretation sessions while building a sacred community of dreamers.
Vanessa's passion and dedication to her healing practice stems from passion and dedication to her own self-healing, self-development and love for the planet. Vanessa's empathetic ways, however, did not always have a home. For years Vanessa did not have an outlet or community that understood and welcomed her sensitivity to events happening around the world and in everyday life. To cope and numb her sensitivities, Vanessa turned to alcohol. Increasing substance abuse after the death of both parents, Vanessa had three car accidents in one year with a near death experience. Suicidal thoughts and addictive habits continued until Vanessa's body began signaling that her path would lead to illness and pain. Her guides began communicating with her through dreamscapes and illuminated the way to a new path of self-healing and self-reflection. Vanessa consciously chose to change course and to follow this new path where she discovered a community of empaths, magickal practitioners, faery magicians and healers, and in turn found herself.
Crystals empower Vanessa to face challenges on her path of self-healing. Tarot is her mirror of self-reflection. Faery magic allows Vanessa to speak her truth, to embody her empathy, to cry for her Earth siblings, to love and honor her Native American, British, Spanish and African ancestors and to see the interconnectedness between all things. Dreamscapes hold space for conversations to further process her self-healing journey. Vanessa’s goal is to share these tools with her clients in love, care and balance to help them embark on their very own healing journeys empowered with confidence. Vanessa truly believes that if she heals herself and helps others heal she can bring this planet closer to wholeness and create a happier future for all of us.
