It's been a strange life so far, but I'm going to attempt to tell you my journey. As a child I was one of four children raised by my Mom in Deer Lake, Newfoundland. We were very poor and this became my motivation in life to learn as many skills as possible and learn as much as possible. When I was 4 years old I was playing in a ditch outside with my brother pouring water on the road and I began to notice that no matter how many times you poured water on the same spot of the road the water would go down a different crack. As soon as I had that realization I looked to my left and saw a bright white light. My next memory is being in an ambulance with a neck brace on and I couldn't breathe. I kept saying "I can't breathe. I can't breathe." and the paramedic didn't seem to care saying "It's to make sure you didn't break your neck. Meanwhile the neck brace was way too tight. I blacked out. My next memory I was floating outside of my body in a hospital room watching myself vomiting on a hospital bed. There was darkness around me as I floated up in the corner of the room, but a spotlight was on my physical body, the doctor and my mom. Pretty sure I died that day. My next memory I woke up in the hospital and my Dad was sitting next to me. There was a rock embedded above my right eyebrow that didn't fall out until' Christmas Day of that year. The first time I can remember predicting a death was around the age of 10 around 6 months before my Grandfather's death. I told my mom that an old man in my family was going to die soon. I had never experienced the death of anyone close to me before that. I loved him so much. He would always try to make me laugh our birthdays were a week apart, his wife (my Nan) her birthday is 3 days before mine. I remember in Grade 1 asking my Poppy if he could build me a school in his backyard so I could teach kids younger than me. He said yes, but died before that dream could ever be fulfilled. At the age of 13 my older sister Markita gifted me a deck of tarot cards. From then on I found myself doing readings. There were times I wasn't sure what to do, but continued on the path. At the age of 15 I lived in my first haunted house that I can recall. I was gifted a Ouija board for Christmas of that year and cried, because I knew it meant bad luck and dark energy. I tried it, not knowing what dark energy I had welcomed into my life. Shortly after that I was reading a book about ghosts in my brother's room near a large window that looks out over a parking lot with a bit of grass before you reach the actual apartment. I could feel something or someone staring at me. I put my book down and looked down 1 floor to the parking lot and saw standing there an old man with a very evil smile, no nose or eyes. I was so terrified I ducked down for a minute peeked back up and he was closer and his smile was bigger. I ducked down again, popped my head back up 10 seconds later and he had disappeared. I walked around the building to find him and no one was there. That was the same apartment where I had a vision. I heard the phone ring. At that moment while in my room everything in front of me went to black and I saw an old lady screaming like she was in pain and not happy. My mother opened my bedroom door and said 'Kanaska...' "Don't tell me, an old lady just died." "Yes, your Aunt Mary's mother in law just died. She called me to tell me." This was around when I started to realize something was going on. Around that age I remember reading a book about enhancing your psychic powers. I was lying on my bed listening to the sounds in the room, then the sounds outside and then listening only to myself. I was able to hear my heart beat in my ears near the end. At the age of 17 we were living at Stockton Drive in Ottawa. This place was haunted. Different members of my family experienced similar phenomena. Black shadows, footsteps, a little girl, an old lady and a male spirit. I remember one night I heard a little girl laughing next to my bed. Feeling paralyzed with fear I called out to my Mother in my head. "Mom, wake up. Wake up. Wake up. Wake up." She got up out of her bed, came to my room and said "Were you just calling out to me?" This was the first telepathic experience I've had that I can remember. When I moved my bedroom to the basement I heard someone whisper my name every single night "Kanaska.", the water would turn on by itself in the basement bathroom, one day while I was talking on the phone the lamp in my room did the strangest thing. I could see the knob clicking on and then off on and off. Eventually my mom had enough of the black shadows and we all moved out of there. I thought that would be the last haunted house I lived in, but was wrong. When i lived across from the Bruyere Hospice so many strange things happened, from missing time, suspected alien implant in my left ear, feelings of being watched, sensing a woman was murdered in the bathroom. One night I had a dream a faceless spirit came into our room beckoned for him to follow her out to the living room and then outside. I really believe my ex boyfriend was abducted in the middle of the night by a spirit, alien or some other entity. I woke up at 3AM to him banging on the window of our bedroom in his boxers. There was a trail of his clothes leading to outside. I get to the front door and he's shivering in the rain like "What happened? How did I get out here??" Even writing this now it gives me the chills. The next day he didn't remember anything and thought I was lying to him. One night I felt I was being watched, messaged everyone I knew to see if they could come hang out. No one could hang out with me, then at 1AM sharp everything in front of me faded to black. I woke up at 5AM on the dot with an excruciating pain in my left ear. In that week I couldn't hear out of my ear, but I could hear other people's thoughts and repeat back to them what they were thinking. The following years I would have countless lucid dreams of UFOs outside of the apartment balcony door, being abducted, visited by grey hybrids, one visitation by a reptilian and an abduction. In 2010 I saw a hybrid grey alien while walking down the street at Chinatown in the East Side of Vancouver. I had just finished printing off what I had of my book I'd written about the mysteries of our universe. I remember him asking me about what I was holding, I told him and he said "Oh a manuscript?" He asked to look at it while he walked me to my apartment chatting. I exclaimed "You look just like a grey alien!" he replied "I get that all the time." I smiled and kept saying "C'mon you're totally an alien. haha!" We'd both laugh. When I reached the hotel I lived in he said "Oh you live here?" gave me this strange look and said "I will see you in two weeks." I smiled, waved and said Goodbye. His name was Cyrus or Cylus. I have a hard time remember his name, but pretty sure it's Cyrus. It seemed like he had more to tell me. And with that he was gone and I went on my way, completely unaware of what had just happened. In the summer of 2011 I saw a grey alien in the woods while fire keeping and fetching wood to keep the fire going. It was about a foot in front of me, it startled me so I ran away. On November 15th, 2015 i was out for a run half past midnight. Across the street from me in the west end of Ottawa I saw float out from the bushes a foot off the ground; a tall grey alien or what is known as ''the rake'' it ran away from me on all fours like a gorilla, stopped at the street corner, stared at me standing on 2 feet like a human and then proceeded to run away to the left on all fours. In 2011 I told a friend of mine that they had to move their camping spot, because a negative spirit was camping there with them. They didn't listen and 1 week later lightning hit that spot and killed my friend, hitting a second friend who survived. I stopped doing psychic readings and pursued tattooing which I had been learning for a year at the time. So many times I would go to do a tattoo and a spirit would come around or I would have to relay a message to clients from a loved one who had died. Yes, I speak to the dead and can feel energies. I can hear, see and feel dead people. I can also hear, see and feel other entities sometimes. I had a lover who was murdered 10 years ago, his spirit would visit me every year around the day he was killed. I was the last person he was supposed to see alive. We were going to meet at a bar, but I arrived at the bar a late by a half hour. I waited all night. Turns out a man shot him outside of a McDonald's bathroom in Surrey, BC. I quit readings for almost a decade until' March of 2020 right before my birthday. I heard someone whispering to me, felt a presence in the room and then felt 3 knocks underneath my bed. Something was nudging me to get back into readings. So I ordered my old tarot deck and decided to get back into spirit channeling, psychic readings and spiritual guidance. I really believe I am put here to help people. Over the years I have lived in at least 4 haunted houses and strange occurrences have happened. I am able to see past, present and future. I do believe we create our own destiny depending on the choices we make in life. Tarot gives you an idea of what is going on at any point during your life. In 2010 I was involved with activism during the Olympics and we were able to get housing for many homeless in Vancouver during the time due to a tabloid written about me gaining exposure. In 2011 I was at Ground Zero of The Twin Towers in New York City talking with friends about how the official story was a lie. Occupy Wall Street happened 6 days later in NYC and I just so happened to be there for that. I ended up book Tom Morello from Rage Against The Machine and opened up for him with a couple of my original songs. That movement went worldwide and I ended up on an album called Occupy This Album which won compilation Album at the Independent Music Awards in 2013. Other artists on this album included Willie Nelson, Tom Morello, Blondie, Yoko Ono, film maker Michael Moore, Mogwai, Toots & the Maytals, Jackson Browne, Patti Smith, Crosby & Nash, Pete Seeger, Third Eye Blind, Our Lady Peace, Steve Earle, Joan Baez, Immortal Technique and more. Many articles about the protest were mentioned in Rolling Stone magazine and media worldwide. Photos of mine were in The Rolling Stone Magazine. It really felt like I was getting somewhere in life. In 2020 I won Pop Artist Of The Year and Pop Single Of The Year at The Ottawa Sound Music Awards.
I'm just getting started.
This is only the beginning.
The work I enjoy the is creating music, making films, music videos and stop motion animation. I love to write books and have self-published 3 books so far since 2016. More books will be published in 2020. I love being a psychic medium, spiritual guide and tarot reader. I used to have my own new age store and tattoo shop, I will be continuing this however the store will be online for now. Other work I enjoy is creating art, painting, helping the homeless, animals and the environment. I am currently working on a new show which I'm hoping to release the first episodes this year. I did radio 2 times during my life, but recently quit a weekly radio show I had on FM radio, due to censorship associated with covid-19. Any narrative that goes against what the media wants is deleted and censored. My new show will combine comedy, music, mystery, interviews and more. Looking forward to bringing this to you. I also run a Film Making company called Witching Hours Films and book shows under the name Witching Hours Entertainment. Only good things will be coming from now on. I can feel it.
I feel very blessed at this point in my life. I overcame homelessness and severe depression. I now run a non-profit called Humani Foundation to help the homeless, animals and the environment. Incorporating Feng Shui into my home has really altered my mood and changed my environment for the better. It is literally magic. I also create vegan recipes and am determined to stay vegan for life. I have never felt healthier. Who knows I may even include some vegan recipes in my new show. Looking forward to what the rest of 2020 brings. Perhaps a fake alien invasion? Haha. Who knows.
They're already here and I'm one of them.
