Why I Do What I Do
I’m Kya Rose, a reactivation coach, progressive Humanist clergyperson, and neurodivergent mother of three.
Two of my children are neurodivergent, like me. The third was a vibrant, talented, beloved young woman who fell victim to the lies told to her by her inner voice and was lost to suicide at the age of 23.
I know all too well what can happen when we don’t heal.
When we forget who and what we are.
When we let fear win.
I’ve always loved fairy tales and, despite what the adults in my life kept telling me, I knew that magic was not only real but vitally important. Determined to discover my own inner magic, I studied Wicca and astrology as a teen. Then in 1993, I was first introduced to the idea of spiritual healing. I quickly joined a beginner’s class to hear about chakras and auras for the first time.
My highly logical mind questioned every idea that was presented and required evidence and results at every step in the process. Auras? Chakras? Energy? Breathwork? Meditation? Why? Says who? Prove it!
I didn’t just want tools, I wanted theory.
In I became a Reiki Master Teacher but the teachings were limited and as I moved beyond them, I continued to search. I traveled to various Rainbow Gatherings, tried psychedelic drugs, was ordained as a humanist minister, studied midwifery, and certified as a transformational coach.
But it wasn’t until after my diagnosis of Autism/ADHD that I finally realized I’d been seeking magic completely backward. I’d wanted magic to give me confidence. But only by accepting myself as a “neurospicy” individual who would never “fit in” could I finally find my confidence, and once I found my confidence, my magic found me.
In the end, it has taken nearly 30 years of studying, trying, failing, and seeking better information about both spirituality and healing to finally reach this point where I know, beyond all of my doubts and fears, that I have something valuable, powerful, and unique to offer the world.
So come, sit a spell, we’ll do magic together.
By remembering that we can.
By realizing that we should.
And by reconnecting with our (neuro)Divine within.
