Now, before you decide to share your story with OMENA, she would like to share hers with you…
OMENA was born in Ireland the third of nine children raised in poverty by a single mother. As a child, she could clearly see things and events unfolding in people’s lives. This gift proved quite annoying to, well, EVERYONE, because she wouldn’t stop telling people things about themselves that only they could knew.
For example, OMENA repeatedly told her mother “something bad was going to happen” to someone close to them. Sadly, at the age of 12, that someone was her mother, killed by a drunk driver, while walking home from OMENA’s grandmother’s house. Suddenly OMENA and six of her siblings were sent off to an orphanage.
“The orphanage ended our poverty, as we knew it. Yes, we were still poor, but now we had indoor plumbing and three meals a day. We had shoes on our feet, wore uniforms, and school was now within walking distance.”
It was the policy of the orphanage that only children under the age of 16 could be residents. At age 16, administrators at the orphanage would find a job and place to live. OMENA had visions of working at Russborough House, a mansion owned by the richest family in the world (at the time). Her best friend was already working there and would visit the orphanage to visit her younger siblings and would tell them – and OMENA – stories about the mansion.
OMENA (already a believer in manifestation) repeatedly told her friend she had decided that she too would work at Russborough House. And no place else! Shortly after her 16th birthday, OMENA was told she would be working at the Russborough House as an upstairs maid.
“Within three years, I went from an impoverished home, to an orphanage, and now living and working in a millionaire’s mansion. Living in a rich man’s mansion and reading his books fed my soul, gave life to feelings of buried sorrows, and a longing for love yet realized. They opened my soul, gave me hope, and helped heal my broken heart. I learned that being poor and living in an orphanage was not shameful, being rich was not happiness, but going to America at 18 would be a dream come true.”
OMENA did indeed immigrate to the U.S. in 1965 when she was 18. With only a sixth grade education, but mature beyond her years, she arrived in the middle of the Civil Rights Movement and the Sexual Revolution.
“I came from a land where all people were white, religion was God, and Jesus, Mary, and Joseph were the Holy Family. Gay meant you were happy, A fag was a cigarette and a guinea was 21 shillings. People of the cloth were priests and nuns, and children were gifts from God. Discovering that names and words had different meanings in other parts of the world was not nearly as shocking as discovering that not all people were Catholic, and not all Catholics were Irish.”
OMENA married and gave birth to a daughter (who passed suddenly) and 2 sons. While she was coping with the loss of her daughter, OMENA was also working full-time and raising her family. Still, she managed to pursue an education all the way up to a master’s degree in human services.
OMENA’s spiritual journey led her to numerous workshops, seminars and lectures across the U.S. and Europe. Along the way, she met a master healer name Ted who immediately recognized how potent her natural-born abilities were; and began to mentor her; allowing her to give him personal readings and coached her on ethics and how to use her spiritual gifts for the highest good.
OMENA’s mission is to educate people about the soul. “Enjoy learning about yourself without feeling as if you are in Therapy”
