Mama Medicine, also known as Deborah Hanekamp and "fashion's favorite healer," discovered she was able to see people's energy and auras in the form of colors and shapes at the age of 12.

At 17 years old, she began facilitating what she now calls Medicine Readings, which include talking with Mama Medicine, an aura reading, meditation, and a healing ceremony to cleanse, bless, and protect the auric field. "You, in a way, are participating in your own healing," says Mama Medicine.

She joined me on the mbg podcast to talk about how she reads a person's aura, why she believes we all have healing abilities, and the unique elements of the experience that people describe as transformational.

Mama Medicine also shares with us:

  • How you can tap into your own healing energy
  • Her advice on finding the right healer for you
  • How to make a powerful bath ritual using ingredients from your kitchen

We were fortunate enough to have Mama Medicine join us this fall at our fourth mbg supper series to lead a gratitude ritual and more recently were excited to hear her thoughts on financial wellness, which is one of our 2019 wellness predictions.

Her powerful, personal experiences and commitment to "helping people find the medicine within them," will inspire you to follow your intuition and dreams in the new year.
