A little about ME!

Jothi means light in Sanskrit

Ever since I was a very young girl I felt that I was being watched over and protected by Spirit and my ancestors. I was a lonely kid with few friends and often in my head day dreaming of worlds beyond my own. I would escape using art, music, and writing stories. Even though I felt alone, lost, and unsupported, I knew deep inside me that Spirit was always with me and guiding me.

Now as a wife and mom of two kiddos, I am on a journey to heal from the trauma that I experienced as a child and reconnect with myself and other like-minded women. I have been navigating new spaces within myself and around me because as I heal from the years that the locusts have eaten, new fertile ground appears for me to plant, foster, grow and harvest new paradigms. I am in awe of these spaces and want to continue to share and open up some of my processes as well as how I have integrated my arts, photography and spiritual practices into my life. I am learning that many women are on a similar journey as me, and I want to connect with more of them! Don’t get it twisted though, with every light beam that appears to me as I heal and clear space, a dark and lonely space still exists. I am learning to accept and surrender to these difficult spaces, find my tribe, and understand that these spaces exist within me as only part of who I am. My spirit is so much more!

I am learning to surrender, accept, explore, discover and reclaim the parts of me that were always there. The good, the bad, and everything in between. I am on a mission to connect with others to do the same!


Life’s waters flow from darkness. Search the darkness, don’t run from it.
