My Story

I think of myself as a wounded healer.  My dad died of brain cancer when I was ten years old. He was my nurturing parent: the person who taught me to paint and the loved one that gave me baths and tickled me.

After his death, I was told not to grieve but to look forward. I felt abandoned, alone, lost and bereft. Like other children with similar traumas, I adopted a story of pain, shame, suffering, and worthlessness that negatively influenced my self-esteem, self-confidence, and self-worth.

In 1993, I started studying energy healing, spirituality, and psychology.  I have studied with Reverend Rosalyn L. Bruyere and Master Ken Weintrub of the Healing Light Center Church (HLCC).  At HLCC, I have studied theology, healing arts, and the sacred mysteries.  In 2023, I got ordained as Reverend and became a minister of prayer and healing.

In addition, I earned my Master of Fine Arts in Interdisciplinary Art, combining the fields of psychology, spirituality, and visual art to innovate a transformative healing art modality that reconnects body and spirit.

For the past 20 years, I have developing an effective system of attuning to the rhythms of the Sun and Moon for spiritual growth, called Soul Gardening. I now share that work through multiple platforms-- classes, workshops, ceremonies, and 1-1 sessions.

My goal is to help you discover your Soul’s purpose and direction and take action towards creating juicy joy, abundance, and deep fulfillment in this life.

I am a spirtual leader, mystic, teacher, and artist. I share my spiritual gifts through teaching, healing, writing, ceremony, prayer, and mediumship.


As a young child, I remember experiencing the spirit realm and feeling a close connection with Spirit.  I could see spirits, like ghosts and other energies.  I also could hear the hum of nature-- the chord of the earth's energy.  And I was facinated with God, going to church and learning about God's Divine Omnipotence.  I loved singing in church and feeling the energy of oneness in the community.

I had a couple childhood trauma's which blocked me from my intuitive gifts. My dad died suddenly from brain cancer when I was 10.  Shortly before that I turned off my channeling and intuition, because I could see his pain and I feared his death and the visions I had about it.  I also had other fears from seeing ghosts and spirits.

At 20 years old a couple months after graduating from college, I had a significant car accident as a result of being "out of my body" from a situation where I was sexually harrased by my boss.  This incident triggered a deep feeling of victimization brought on by being raped at 16 and at 18.

After this accident, I surrendered, prayed and listened.  I reconnected with God and my higher self and started seeking answers to my pain and suffering.  This was when I started studying to be a priest-healer by learning energy healing, mediumship, the Sacred Medicine Wheel, and the Sacred Egyptian Mysteries from Reverend Rosalyn L. Bruyere, author Wheels of Light and founder of the Healing Light Center Church in Sierra Madre, CA.

I earned my MFA-IA in 2001 and have been a teacher for the past 20 years, focussed primarily on teaching art and creativity.  I have an art business with my husband, Scott Moore, called Liquiterra.  Click here to go to  But I have also worked for many years in mental health with severly mentally ill teens and done social justice work for Children with Incarcerated Parents in Coconino County.Sydney Francis working on the Century Plant drawing

I also taught visual art from Kindergarten to 12 grade and elementary education for almost 20 years.

For the past 6 years, I have been also teaching a spiritual practice that I have developed call Soul Gardening. Soul Gardening  is a system that ultimately teaches you how use your silver and gold chakras for self-healing, to live your soul's true purpose, and to cultivate self-love by transforming your childhood programming into a source of strength and meaning.
