About Me

https://emeraldvisions.org/paintings/#jp-carousel-151

I’m Raphael, Welcome to Emerald Visions!

I am a Queer Jewish Witch called to the work of the spirits in service to Nature and the Divine. I am a visionary artist, psychic medium, aspiring herbalist, astrologer, and freelance writer. The waters of spiritual practice I swim in are Jewish magic and ecstatic witchcraft as I am guided by my relationship with the spirit world, nature, and the ancestors. I love to spend my time communing with nature, practicing mediumship, and weaving ritual along with engaging in practice and study of the occult, tarot, art history, dreams, ancestral healing, mysticism, and poisonous plant and herbal medicine. I strive to spark soul-nourishing inspiration through my spiritual services and teaching; with my values being rooted in liberation, social justice, and earth-honoring practices in service to a spirit of love and repair for souls seen and unseen. Follow me on TikTok and Instagram!
