Bear Woman Who Knows The Truth
I AM Bear Woman. I also am Melissa Heiber Radell I am married to a medicine man of the Rainbow People's medicine Lodge. This is my native connection as well as the soul memories of native (and non native walks on Earth. I am a carrier of the chanupa as well as a ceremonial dancer. I have gifts given me by creator (God) that I can not explain in few words. I believe in angels, demons. Light and dark. Skin is a color religion is a preference. Spirituality is our connection Soul is the essence of our being. do not trust any one or thing with the core of you. I am a Wife sister daughter cousin friend I am a Survivor. At 46 I am physically disabled I have worked as waitress childcare assistant casino cashier and a surgical trauma tech. I am a spiritual being living as a human with the purpose of raising self awareness as well as self healing. Through whatever way works for you. As long as You understand the universal karmic laws I have a very light side. But I also carry dark. We all do. Embrace it allow it appropriate time to "play" then learn to balance the light and dark into a nice shade of grey. We are all one. Walk in balance to your paths drum beat (heart). Life is not a game you can't cheat life you either live it the Best you know how or you do not. I am not anyone's judge I have been shown my truth. I completed my vision quest in 2011 yet due to stroke continued the quest. I no longer quest the answer of "what's this life for " mine is to be a better person than yesterday.


Susan Kinney is a practicing Licensed Massage Therapist whos held an accomplished massage career in Chicago. The 15 year profession as an LMT led her to work in both chiropractic/physical therapy clinical settings; and holistic wellness centers. Susan is well aware that the body is more than just mechanical. For this reason she has incorporated multiple forms of energy work as part of her practice. Susan had not witnessed the enormous impact energy and magick had within the various facets of life, until she began her work with Duncan. Through OFinioan's guidance, Susan has discovered the missing link that progressed her bodywork practice to the next level; benefiting both her and her clients.

Duncan OFinioan has taken a unique evolving role within the alternative esoteric community over the years. Raised in a rural Eastern Kentucky town with half Cherokee and Celtic roots, O’Finioan’s psychic abilities arrived at a very young age. Duncan was named Grey Feather by his Cherokee grandfather, who explained that he was a tween man; (someone who could walk in between two worlds). This distinct ability encouraged him to work with energy of all sorts. As a child he naturally gravitated to martial arts and currently holds a fifth degree black belt in Tang Soo Do.

OFinioan has also utilized various cultural disciplines, knowledge base, and techniques to enhance his craft. Celtic, Norse, Asian, and Native American are to name a few. Over the years Duncan has developed an eclectic style of the esoteric arts, energy work, and world view which has appealed to multiple alternative media formats including the following: Shoot from the Hip with Duncan OFinioan on the CCN Network, Off Planet Radio with Randy Maugans, Project Camelots first Awake and Aware L.A. Conference, Project Camelots 2nd Awake and Aware L.A. Conference, Jesse Ventura's: Conspiracy Theory on True T.V., and has an appearance in PACKING FOR MARS documentary film.

Duncan has grown into an esoteric Master of all Trades when inquiring about his work and services. His experiences and expertise include: layman exorcist with both house clearings and individual possessions, removal of attachments, ridding curses, energy boosts, and rebalancing energetic fields within the body. Besides working with law enforcement, individuals, and businesses, O’Finioan has held group workshops throughout the country encouraging people to work with energy and protect themselves. The renowned P.T.M. (Practical, Tactical, Magickal) workshop has traveled to Massachusetts, California, Las Vegas, Pennsylvania, Arizona, and Minnesota.

Duncan OFinioan understands that expanding an individuals awareness and utilization of energy is self empowering; and encourages people to gain the knowledge and techniques for an improved quality of life
