Imani aka The Hood Healer is a psychic clairvoyant from Los Angeles who is bicoastal and currently based in New York. As previously mentioned, Imani has been a significant part of my spiritual growth and creative pursuits in the last year, so I was grateful to have her as my guest on Episode 2 of Progression back in February. You can catch up on that episode here.

We’re now officially in Virgo season, and there’s no better way to welcome the season on the show with none other than the Virgo queen herself, Imani. We reflect on how 2019 has been so far, more gems around embracing your personal power, and the concepts of becoming and unbecoming in life. We revisit her thoughts on the Age of Aquarius and everything in between, from her continuous community work surrounding topics of womb healing and more. Follow Imani at @thehoodhealer.
