Today we’d like to introduce you to Clarissa Dolphin.
So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
My interest in the esoteric has been profound since a very young age. My mother first exposed me to divination through her consultation with the I Ching oracle when I was five years old and she had also influenced me early on by introducing me to astrology through Linda Goodman’s books. Although I picked up I Ching divination myself as a teenager, read horoscopes avidly, and experienced weird spiritual stuff I could not explain throughout the whole of my life, I didn’t take myself seriously as a practitioner of the esoteric arts until my shamanic death process in 2012, when I was 28 years old.
After pursuing writing and editing jobs in L.A. and London for years, I had finally been awoken by spirits in very certain terms and began pursuing divination through tarot and astrology as a serious life path. I have been practicing shamanic journeying and reading tarot cards for clients ever since. I also became an apprentice under Vibrational Astrologer David Cochrane in 2015 and will become a certified Vibrational Astrologer in January, 2018 after years of tutelage.
We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
In hindsight, everything happened perfectly, but it has not been a smooth road in the slightest. At the beginning of my new career as a spiritual healer and diviner, I had a hard time believing in myself. The enormity of healing souls and passing on very important messages from beyond was not lost on me. I knew this was my path, but I didn’t know how to pursue it, if I needed qualifications or whatnot, and I literally had to trash my old career and start from the very beginning. Shamanic death often results in illness, you literally nearly die, and that happened quite a few times and I had faced weird diseases like rheumatic fever throughout that period of time. My ego was the biggest struggle along the way. I had to let go of classic success stereotypes, accept becoming a student again, develop patience, mature in profound ways and learn to enjoy the ride. Starting a business from the ground up, especially a spiritual business, saw me venturing into all kinds of unknown territory, esoteric and otherwise. I had no idea how to run a website, what to do on social media and making business choices was maddening because I constantly second-guessed myself and lost faith in my abilities.
But over years of hard work, the little steps I took on a spiritual, personal and professional level have all added up to some rad and healing venture called Siriusly Sidereal.
So let’s switch gears a bit and go into the Siriusly Sidereal story. Tell us more about the business.
I specialize in divination and shamanic healing sessions. Divination is literally using tools like tarot and astrology to glean information from supernatural worlds. I read tarot and perform Vibrational Astrology readings. Vibrational Astrology is a new ridiculously accurate system of astrology created from controlled research studies that has shocking similarities to String Theory in physics. Basically, in Vibrational Astrology, planets are treated as vibrating bodies with specific resonances that create energy patterns in a natal chart, so a person is a channel for very specific cosmic energy flows that create distinct behaviors. As a shaman, I work with the help of spirits to heal soul disease. Just like the physical body, the soul can get sick, so with the aid of my helping spirits I am able to treat soul illness, thus, improving life by restoring others’ soul power. I have the privilege of working with any soul, dead, alive, human, or otherwise.
Has luck played a meaningful role in your life and business?
Bad luck has always been proven to be good luck when it’s all said and done. When I first got called to the path of the shaman, my old writing career was dying in many ways.
It was very painful to experience this sudden wave of rejection on my pitches and projects. I got rejected from this hot-ticket job after making it through interviews to become one of the top two candidates, and it broke my heart, I cried for a week in bed.
But if I had gotten that job, I would NOT have had the time to read tarot at parties and fairs, consult with my spirits through journeys, practice divination and healings on people, take courses, or any of that stuff. My day job would have taken over and I would not be living a true, fulfilling, authentic life path, so in hindsight, that ‘stroke of bad luck’ was the absolute best thing that could have happened to me. I am also noticing that nowadays, I seem to end up in the right place at the right time like 24/7, and I suspect it’s because I’m really doing what my soul was meant to be doing on this earth and providence acknowledges that.
