My journey started out with a desire to change the world from the outside. I studied Political Science, International Studies, languages and cultures. Ultimately, my goal was to work in the foreign service, which felt natural to me growing up around different languages and cultures. I had a series of internships and jobs in those areas, and I accomplished many of my goals while creating a fabulous resume. I knew I was on my way, or was I?
At some point, I noticed I had a tendency to become ill quite frequently. I focused on eating healthier and exercising more, and I kept pushing forward. After being accepted into my master’s program in International Relations and Peace and Conflict Studies at the University of Tübingen, I knew this was my next step to my goal. After 2 semesters into my program, I again began getting ill quite often. Once again, I looked to my nutritional as well as my physical component of health, and made adjustments. However, this time, it didn’t work. I became so ill, that I knew I had to stop my program. For the first time, I looked at my resume, and asked myself, “is this really me? Who am I?”

During this time, I allowed myself to just be, and I spent a lot of time in nature. I rested, took great care of myself, and read things that really intrigued me. I began to take an interest in the health of the skin, since it’s our largest organ, and I had a desire to understand why I was getting skin rashes for no apparent reason. Things would affect my skin, that had no logical correlation. I was seeking out answers more and more on my own.
Most importantly, I began to place importance on emotional and physical balance in my life, and I began to learn about all kinds of healing modalities. There were many patterns and situations from my earlier life, that had a deep impact on me. I realized I needed to embrace the pain of some of those experiences, call them back up, forgive them, and heal them for good.
Ultimately, my unique and intuitive sensitivities began to call me and shape my life. I knew, I had previously ignored them, and that through them I would bring healing into the world.
If everyone who walked the earth was truly whole and healed, we would live in paradise. We would love and support each other. There would be no need for competition, and all would be supported. – Ulonda Faye
Shortly after becoming a certified wellness practitioner and holistic esthetician, I became a specialist for organic skincare and healthcare through Bio-Genesa GmbH, an herbal health and skincare company in Germany. I worked for a year as an assistant to an Osteopath and holistic Ears-Nose-Throat doctor. The connection between manual therapy, touch and positive affirmations became astoundingly clear to me. I took certified courses on Hawaiian traditional forms of healing through bodywork and ancient shamanic techniques. I additionally studied a Hawaiian massage form called Lomi Lomi Nui. Through the awareness that we all need a process to ‘check-in’ with our selves and others, I choose to additionally study Kinesiology.
During this time, I began to realize the importance of movement in our lives for healing the emotional and the physical. I took part in a dance group focusing on Hula dance, which I already had a great philosophical understanding of through my courses. It was wonderful. The release of what was, and the opening of new birth from the soul, became apparent in a deep way. I danced Hula, and grew a deep love and appreciation for many forms of dance at this time, where the performances were healing for me to simply watch.

After a decade of deep learning, practice, and becoming my true self, I returned to the U.S., where I had lived for the beginning part of my life. Shortly after moving back, I had a Near Death Experience (NDE) during a bicycle accident. This challenged my whole being. I had already been experiencing cultural assimilation challenges, and difficulty re-integrating into the family of my birth. Now, due to a head and back injury, I needed to relearn many functions, as well as enhance my knowledge through finding herbal remedies for my bruised body and soul. I literally couldn’t remember anything from the day before.
As more time passed, and I healed my memory challenges, I began to realize, that who I was before was not who I am now. To this day, it is very challenging for me to look at pictures of myself, hear my voice, or watch videos of my self from the time before my accident. I simply do not relate to the person I was before, though I have retained all of the wisdom and knowledge of my whole life, I do not have an emotional connection to who I was and the things and people in my life before my accident. It hasn’t been easy, but I have learned to see it as a gift. It too has it’s purpose, and I see it now as an initiation into the deeply spiritual side of life.
With the grace that came through this experience, my work now has a deep spiritual touch. What I witnessed, and saw during that moment of dying, and what I additionally experienced once I came back, added a whole new dimension to my understanding of life. It provided me with a strong foundation, and a knowing that there is truly nothing to fear. For everything, even deeply painful experiences, have their reason and everything is here to benefit us. Truly, every experience blesses us.

In order to give my mind, body and spirit the time it desired and needed to heal, I spent a few years working in the Wellness departments of health food stores assisting people with healing, while I continued to study on my own and learn about myself. I also worked as an assistant to an amazing healer, functional medicine specialist, and chiropractor. She helped me additionally understand the non-physical and spiritual experiences I continued to have happen on a regular occurrence. Sometimes, just her presence offered insight, and I didn’t even need to seek out guidance. I started to understand how people can open us up, and have that experience on us and in us. Sometimes, simply sharing energy and space can have this effect.
Now, that too is my personal experience. What I hear most from clients, is the deep peace and expansiveness they feel through working with me. I have had people book sessions simply to hear my voice as they felt deep opening of gifts within them through it. I have also been told there is a feeling of being lifted up into higher vibrations while speaking with me followed by a shift after our work together. Often, people come to make big life changes they have been putting off, and stopping the ‘story’ that has kept people blocked and stuck is also a gift that comes forth.
As an ordained spiritual minister, I am committed to my spiritual path and honor that within you.
I also work as a writer and am currently working on two books, which I have a strong intention to finish this year. Spirit always guides us with right timing, and thus I allow the energy to reveal the timing.
The energy and intention is extremely important in all of my work, and I continue to work with different light beings in the field of energy work and internalized dreaming.
Growing up in a German-American family, and having had much of my schooling and life in segments in the US, Europe, Asia, and South America, I feel a great calling to assist in bringing healing to all peoples from all backgrounds. I first learned to meditate from a Spiritual teacher in Ecuador, who also taught me Spanish and Salsa. It was an unexpected exchange, and a great life-long friendship has ensued.
I fluently speak English and German, and I have a deep love for Spanish and all things Latin and Native American. I continue to work on my Spanish language skills, and am looking forward to more trips to South America as well as a trip to India.
Healing has no borders ♥ Love is boundless ♥ – Ulonda Faye
I am currently in New Mexico, USA, however, I change my physical living location as need be for the work I do. For this reason, I also provide services online.
In addition to being a spiritual minister, I am also a member of the Society of Shamanic Practice and a member of the Flower Essence Society.
I have experienced and witnessed a tremendous amount of healing through flower essences, and I continue to use and make vibrational remedies to further my consciousness and overall growth. I am grateful to the Spirit of the Flowers, and all plant medicine made freely, while abundantly available to humanity.
We need only plant our garden, and watch it grow through love. – Ulonda Faye
