I’m Carrie Louise Wood.
I am a witch, healer and hermitess. That’s the easiest way to describe myself.
I love using everyday things to pour my healing majik into for others. I started drawing in the third grade and was the kid that noticed everything: people’s quirky habits, bits of energy floating through a shaft of light, the undercurrent of emotion in a room, dreaming of things that would later happen. I have always felt things very deeply, and that fuels my work – and my outlook on the world. I connected early on to the earth and the stars, feeling an undercurrent that most people couldn’t see. I began seeing other beings as a kid and it developed more over the years. It wasn’t until 2015 that I realized I was maybe not crazy, but just a very gifted seer and healer. My brain has always worked a bit differently, so it made more sense than anything else. I believe in everyday majik and in sharing that spark of wholeness with those who need it most. I’ve always been a misfit, living near or under the poverty line, dealing with various mental illness labels, abuse, and I’m genderfluid, coming out later in life, so you won’t find any mainstream new age around here. This is an inclusive space for all misfits and the oppressed, and my heart beats loudest for you who don’t have access to the mockery the healing/spiritual industry has become. I’m all about shattering illusions, honoring the experiences we have on this journey and getting to the bones of everything.
My human DNA goes back a long way, dipping into a deep tradition of Norse majik, so I am here to heal and make that accessible, and bring back the ancient ways, dismantle oppression, following my intuition above all. But mostly I am here to give a finger to this fucked up system we live in and continue to inspire others through my art, writing, majickal offerings to remember their divine spark. It’s time to take it back. With force, if necessary.
In my work journey, some cool things have happened. Some people like to know those things.
