Phoenix the Elder

Phoenix of Elder Mountain Dreaming has been committed to her own personal self-healing journey, karmic purifications, spiritual sobriety and self-awareness disciplines for the past 40 years as a fated life and life style. She equally dedicated to the great care of students, apprentices and clients that she was blessed to work with.

A master healer, and very experienced traditional slavic folk healer, dreamer (lucid dreamer, out of bodies, astral traveler, seer, remote viewer in waking and dreaming), seer (oracle), mystic, wise counsel, traditional weather shaman, dream medicine healer, initiator of dreams, astrologer, symbolist, mythologer, moon medicines, living by the lunar cycles with nature, synchronicity-cycles, energy healer and more as she brings all this into her soul work and more. 

She walks the Seasons of Nature living within real monthly energy cycles of change and the changing of the season that are in sync with a woman’s dreaming cycles, menses cycles and soul cycles as one. This is called the River of Life, the old Mother Mysteries of the Urals and the Slavic mysteries of woman.

Phoenix’s ancestral lineage is Carpathian (red) Rusyn and Lemko where she was the next in her family line to fall under the initiations of the Szeptucha (Polish) and Mol’farka (Ukraine). Her elders and ancestors were from the villages of Skrzyszów, Lubaczów and Rzeszów, a region connected to the indigenous Galician, Rusyn, Lemko, Hutsul and Boyko peoples.


Phoenix work by scype or messenger and no longer works out of her cottage. She works within a structure of Six Months (once a month sessions with homework) in order to best support the serious Seeker who needs to heal, move on or let go in some fashion. Folk Healing is a “living” healing process in the birth, transition, death and rebirth medicines so integrated changes of change can occur.

She works mainly with water and fire medicines, the lunar cycles and dreams along with wisdom and the gift to see what needs to change so one can apply to the mundane life and its struggles.

Phoenix opens doors of awareness during the six months and you are given that awareness in order to make the right steps forward in healing or changes of your issue(s) from there forth. She reveals the hidden, the hidden soul issues, hidden karma, and hidden root of one’s pain, diseases or the path that will best be focused upon for clarity, groundedness and most of all common sense in this crazy new age era.

Phoenix is committed to honor “sobriety” as a part of one’s spiritual journey, spiritual healing journey, metaphysical, indigenous or new age path. She works with the more serious spiritual persons’ who wish to see real results in their emotional and soul healing or soul advancement work through actions (not philosophies or belief systems). This is an essential part her foundation work and of her own personal journey for over three-decades.

If one has been sober for 8 years or more she will work with you and for those who are very light in this matter, like a glass of wine once every 3-6 months she will ask that you be sober while working with her. For those who participate in daily, weekly or monthly smoking of pot, drinking of wine or alcohol, plants (or plant medicines), peyote, drugs, ayahuasca, mushrooms or any other world wide perception altering substances of any kind and call themselves spiritual – she no longer works with clients like this.

lightning woman1. HEALING – Phoenix works with those who are empaths, sensitives, intuitives and dreamers who wish to heal and come to a deeper understanding through their journey. “We cannot heal anything we are not aware of” is the root foundation of her work, and thus the journey of self-healing and self-awareness becomes one along with purity, at the depth required to know the self and heal the self. Her medicines are releasing and letting go medicines, in real terms, emotional, physical, mental and soul work, through practices and commitment to disciplines (putting it into action).

2. EMPATHIC & EMOTIONAL HEALING – Working with the emotional body, the empaths pain, and emotional pain has been a dedication in Phoenix’s work. For over thirty years she has mastered the complexities in her work when one heals without medications. She helps clients and other healers navigate the ability to structure emotional chaos within the practices to attain the depth of releases and detoxes in a safe and grounded manner.

She helps you learn to addressing core self sabotage issues, fear issues, self hate, emotional fears or anger. Phoenix will usually have a dreams revealing a root issue for those she works with for six months, so it can be addressed. Emotional fears present in the self currently, one’s inner child from on’es past, and for some, past life karma can be worked with and slowly move through releases and emotional detoxes. The healing journey of the emotional body is a slow and long process because the emotional body is directly connected to the complexities of our souls.

3. DREAMING – A master dreamer who teaches her own ancient dream medicine and dream work, based on learning the foundations first of root symbolism to train the mental body to use the symbolism. Then that slowly transfers into being used by the mental astral body dreams.

This is so the soul can tell its own story to the mental body dreamer. When we wake up, we remember what the mental body dreamer shared and then we can work with it, applying it to our struggles and desires. Dreams are infinite layers and levels of the self and working with Phoenix, one gains a clearer understanding the language of dreams, dreaming and dreamtime.

4. DIVINATION – Professional reader of divination: Reading of Cards, Chinese Wisdom Cards, Astrology, Stones and Palm Readings with over 40 years experience in counselling others to understand the cycles they are in, how long they will last and what opportunities there are to heal, change and grow from personal struggles or experiences. 

5. CREATIVE MOON – Learning to live intentionally, is what the Moon and Lunar Cycles are all about. Honoring your dreams at night and learning how this origin of our ancient communications reflects our personal life, our soul and our creativity, is the focus to value these parts of our self. Creative Ritual is an important part of growing and expanding past our fears and Phoenix helps others learn to bridge the mundane with the creative to heal.

6. SHADOW WORK – Working with sensitive people who experience fears or pain from the unseen and the unknown with grounding practices. Professional Exorcist, Dream Exorcist and Land Exorcisms. Remove, extract or bind problems of darkness, astral demons, shadows, demon animism and dark creatures etc.

Six once a month sessions are based on your yearly income. She doesn’t do free work anymore, but did for twenty years as a vow of poverty in her spiritual journey. Please

I am so fortunate to have been able to work with Phoenix, who holds such deep insight and wisdom. I feel that she stands in an extraordinarily rare place, at a crossroads of the modern world and the realm of mythic dreams and divinatory messages that was known to our ancestors.

Through her incredible intuitive sense, Phoenix knew exactly the tools and insights I needed to navigate a very challenging time in my life. She also helped me greatly in learning to balance and integrate mind, body and emotions, bringing me to a place where I could finally start to follow the guidance of my own Soul.

Since my sessions with her, whenever I hit a bump in my daily life, key things that Phoenix taught me immediately appear in my mind, to show me a way around or through an obstacle, and reminding me yet again what an amazing and life changing gift those sessions with her were over six months.

Going deeper into the cycles of the 13 moons and the two halves of the year with Phoenix had given me a beautiful way to connect with the cycles of nature, as well as an effective system in which to ground my ongoing inner work. I was also very impressed by Phoenix’s deep knowledge of the astrological patterns that can offer insight into the different phases of life.

Once of the things that first drew me to Phoenix is the concept of Sacred Art. Phoenix had been sharing so many beautiful examples of mythic artwork and ancestral folk craft and traditions through her website for many years, and I found these images enchanting. But over that same time I came to realize the depth of meaning my own art lacked.

Phoenix’s recommendations on ways to use my creative process to explore the mystical or mythical sides of life’s challenges have been incredibly therapeutic. And through this process, by bringing art and spirituality and ancestral knowledge and the wisdom of nature all together, I finally feel I have found the something I had been long in search of. And while I feel that it was always my path, without Phoenix’s guidance I certainly would have been lost in the brambles for some time yet.

I have been on a healing path for over 25 years, having worked a good part of those 20 years in a metaphysical store. I have heard a lot of big claims and would be enthusiastic until the healing, then, more often than not, I was left unimpressed or my issues not resolved. Then I met Phoenix, she is a true healer, going into my shadow and helping me heal an old wound, that was very scary and daunting, she showed me fearlessness in her work that showed results.

She helped me heal my alcohol addiction and ultimately, we heal ourselves and Phoenix encourages that, so her pressure on me encouraged me to make a change, she never gave up. There is no ego in her work only truth, as she share her courage and helps you face, heal and then release with the difficult “letting go” medicines that she’s mastered and works with. Its what helps keeps you from realizing the love, which you are and her ceremonies help you focus on these letting go aspects as they arise  in a cyclical process, what she calls lunar cycles through the season which includes the healing of our emotional body and then our soul.

I highly recommend Phoenix for anyone serious about their healing and spiritual journey, their intentional growth and spiritual growth.

The basics are the foundation of starting to live with a lunar awareness for me, which Phoenix has totally opened this very ancient work and discipline with me. This is being aware of the energy of self awareness with the structure of the month, through intention and learning how each lunar cycle effects us personally – through keeping track of the symbolism, signs and syncronicities that pops up during the moon cycle and the dreams we have.

Dreams are one big part of her work and because I am a natural dreamer (as she calls it), it was something I yearned to learn from a master dreamer. That was a huge part of my first couple years and I had to work through undoing many of my assumptions about symbolism. Then came the more complex “mirror” and self reflective work work within that.

How to find yourself and the parts of yourself you are blind to through the things that are happening around you or that you are attracting or the way you are feeling. This process is the ancient way of lunar enlightenment, and is about learning to look at yourself through the “mirrors” that surround you.

This much more difficult than it sounds and takes a lot of humility, willingness to heal, disciplines, and willingness to hold your issues close and not to project onto those who mirror them, point them out ( kindly or unkindly), touch them or bring them to the surface. It can be very hard but it is very worthwhile and is a learning process and an unlearning process.

Phoenix work is tailored to each person individually and what your life is like. Most likely she will have you commit to a healthy activity like yoga, meditation, martial arts, dance etc ( what ever you like) because it helps keep you grounded and disciplined which is in your benefit as the practiced discipline comes in handy later on in the apprenticeship.

Phoenix is like a surgeon in her preciseness and she doesn’t say things unnecessarily. So it’s best (and makes your time worthwhile) to learn to listen. And your issues will come up around her because she is, by her very nature, a soul healer and that’s what happens in her presence and under her tutelage. You will have to figure out how “not” to project that onto her because when we touch a trigger to heal, we project and usually its not nice for the self or the other.

Many of her apprentices over the last three decades could not handle any of this and cannot truly slay their own ego (which, when done properly, feels truly shitty until you get used to it) when it comes to spiritual learning. I think its especially hard for people who have read lots of books about spirituality ( and feel knowledgeable )…

Which they are, but as you know knowledge is not the same as experience or are used to being in more “social” spiritual groups which is usually fun and strives to be conflict free.

An apprenticeship in learning the art of self healing, self love, else trust, self respect  work is not always pretty and can be full of inner conflict, tears, rage, uncertainty, inner triumph, true epiphanies, healing and priceless lessons but she supports you and makes sure your safe and grounded in the process and also for her clients suggests other holistic support as well according to one’s personal needs. I have found it worth my apprenticeship for 10 years. Her bar is so higher that most  cannot make this level of self dedication except for an apprentice.

    I love this! Especially your teaching about holding attention between walking and dreaming. I will read and read again about the practices of water, fire and I feel resonance with your writing about an intimacy/relationship with the elements. Also, the insects and birds…

      Also, I remember when I lived in the city at the highest elevation of this country I’d love the snow arriving —during storms it called me outside. I’d go walking for miles as it snowed. There is a magic to winter a deep spirit. Thank you 🙏
