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 felt confident I was on my way in life, yet I hadn’t met my soul yet.
At some point, I noticed I had a tendency to become ill. 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 Resolution at the University of Tübingen, I was delighted to be at my next step to my goal. After 2 semesters into my program, I again began getting ill 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. My ability to see and feel energies, and sense things before they happened, were parts of myself I had previously kept hidden. I knew, I had ignored them instead of nurturing them, and that now 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, energy work 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.
Passion. We all need passion and soul expression in our lives. – Ulonda Faye
After a decade of deep learning, practice, and becoming true to my 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 moment or 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 myself 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. I have learned to see it as a gift. It too has its 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. My sensitive perception to energy as well as psychic, intuitive realizations, has become stronger through the experience. What I witnessed, and saw during that moment of dying, and what I additionally experienced once I came back to Earth, 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.
A strong spiritual connection is fundamental to our health and purpose in the world.

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 worked on understanding the non-physical and spiritual experiences I continued to have happen on a regular occurrence. People began to tell me, more and more, how I open people up, and how my presence gives off a healing and loving experience for others.
What I hear most from clients, is the deep peace, love 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 can keep 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, one of which is near completion. 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. A great deal of time is spent before and after sessions to ensure I am a vessel of Divine healing, love-based energy.
Growing up in a German-American family, and having had much of my schooling and life 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. My experience living in Buddhist countries has left a deep imprint in my work, and my spiritual connection to Indian Hindu-based teachers, has given my work a deep touch of ancient India.
I fluently speak English and German, and I have a deep love for Spanish and all things Latin American and Native American. Currently I am learning from the works of Paramahansa Yogananda, a great Indian Saint. I continue to grow, to work on my language skills, and am looking forward to more trips to South America as well as a trip to India to deepen my energy work through continued use of mantras and mudras.

I am currently in Iowa City, Iowa, 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
