Mikki Ibarra

Spiritual Adviser in Independence, Oregon

I have been a spiritual adviser for nearly thirty years, an ordained minister for nearly twenty, my goal is to touch as many people's lives as possible in a positive manner and to help people achieve the highest level of personal spirituality that they can. I am a mother, a grandmother and a great grandmother. I encourage others to find their own paths in life and to never stop learning, never stop dreaming, never stop questioning and to never say never!

What began as simple questions now made sense. I met a woman who said “You see things” and from there, it’s been quite the ride. I have been a practitioner of “mystical” arts for most of my adult life, my faith has transformed, my spirituality has expanded, and now, I believe in nearly everything that there is to believe in. I follow no dogma but ones which I personally set for myself, I do not attach myself to any organized religion.

So in case you’re wondering, here’s what I believe. I believe that the spiritual entities such as deities, saints, angels, demons, etc. are nothing more than big bundles of energy that have come to exist simply because they have been named, given jobs to do, petitioned. Am I saying that we made God? Yup. We feed them. I believe…no I know…that science is real, the big bang created the universe, etc. etc. I believe that there is a difference between fact and faith, science and spirituality, yet they don’t have to contradict each other. In fact, it is how I work my fabulous mystical workings….simply science. Manipulating energy, that’s all that it is…nothing spooky.

I believe that organized religion is political. The gods don’t really have all of these tenets, these rules and regulations for human beings. Spirituality is the understanding that we, big bundles of energy, are all connected and if we hurt one, we hurt all.

I believe that each individual has access to an amazing amount of power, and that is what The Dole of Doves is all about, it’s about drawing us all together and each person learning how to access that power…to make the world a better place and to make ourselves better people.
