Many years ago I started my journey with an amazing spiritual tool known as the Tarot. And now I’ve made it my mission to utilize the Tarot to help others along in their journey. It is my goal to use the traditions of the Tarot to guide all of you on a path of positivity and happiness. I use the Tarot to offer spiritual insight, guidance, support and clarity. After the many years of studying the Tarot I have also honed my skills as a Reiki Healer. Along with providing Reiki sessions I now incorporate Reiki Healing in my Tarot reading.
Toby discovered the innate ability to listen to Source in 1999. This ignited a passion in him to teach others to tune in for themselves and expand into their full potential. Toby continued down this path by completing his M.Ed. in Counseling and Human Development in 2003 at Hardin-Simmons University and later studying Tantric Vinyasa yoga under Tracee Stanley in Topanga, CA. He expands his knowledge and connection through personal daily practices and teaching classes, workshops, and retreats. He has served as Director of Youth Prevention Programs for a rehabilitation center and as Director of Environmental Education for a children's science museum. Working in the fields of health and environmental education taught Toby to "practice what he preaches." He created his intuitive holistic coaching business, Shekhinah Holistic, from his desire to help others discover their true essence, and thus, create balance, harmony, and fulfillment. He focuses on the whole person, believing that a healthy body opens the pathway for a clear mind and unlimited spiritual growth. "When you take your perception of Source and its infinite possibilities out of the box, you have unlimited potential."

My floral background starts in my grandmothers garden. It's a lovey place filled with wild flowers and fruit trees. It's where I first learned how to make a flower crown.... A sweet lil thing made with daisies. My life has taken many paths since I was a child but I'm happy to say that I've returned to my roots ( pun intended ) My style is based on showcasing the wildness of blooms and greenery into arrangements and wearable art.... Including a modern twist on fresh and dried arrangements, flower crowns, wreaths, floral rings, corsages, boutonnière's, lei's, and necklaces to name a few.
