Candice Creelman grew up in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada and remembers from the time she was very young, being quite different from those around her, especially her peers. Candice recalls, "contemplating the nature of the Universe" from a very young age. Her intuitive abilities and ability to sense and see energy also began to show up around that time.
Following her creative pursuits and love of film and theatre, she felt inspired to write her first screenplay at age 16 and a stage play at age 18. She also began poetry and songwriting. She continued that path and studied acting, playwriting, classical voice training, and eventually, theatre and most recently, film production.
While studying theatre production in college in 1991, Candice faced her biggest challenge. Dealing with depression and anxiety since childhood, she hit her lowest point when she began to contemplate suicide. In that moment, she recalls having a sense that she wasn’t alone. She heard a voice in her head that she later described as her Angels, telling her that she couldn’t leave yet because she “had something very important she had to stick around for.”
She had a vivid sense that whatever her “mission” was, that it was much bigger than her. This led Candice onto her own healing and spiritual journey and she began to learn about what she had been sensing for so long. She knew from that moment, that she wasn’t alone in the universe and that someone was guiding her to a higher purpose.
For many years after, she devoured books and researched various spiritual paths and healing modalities such as Native Shamanism, Ortho Bionomy, Tibetan Buddhism, guided meditation and visualization, Crystal Healing, channeling, Polarity Therapy, Cranial Sacral Therapy, Reflexology, Touch for Health TM, flower essences, Toning and sound healing and many more.
After graduating from Theatre Production at Red Deer College and later, Music, she made a bold move that came straight from her intuitive guidance – she decided to move across the country to Toronto to pursue music. Little did she know that Toronto had even more plans for her.
It was while living in Toronto when she was introduced to Reiki that she found what she was looking for. She was received her level 1 Reiki in 1997, and level 2 and Master level in 1998. She later followed another early calling and began working in the film industry, in various capacities both in front of and behind the camera.
After moving back to Alberta, Candice had the opportunity to go to Toronto when His Holiness, the Dalai Lama was visiting in 2004. She participated in the eleven day Kalachakra initiation. She has also received the Medicine Buddha teachings and empowerment. Candice recalls when walking into the hall, the feeling of love, joy and compassion was so intense that she nearly dropped to her knees. Her account of that experience was nothing less than life changing for her.
Candice currently runs Thunderbird Sky Reiki & Energetic Arts as well as Thunderbird Sky Video Production. She is a published author with an article in Lee Carroll's book, Indigo Children. She also has a self-published E-book entitled, Energy and Healing 101: Transform Your Life which can be purchases online at www.thunderbirdsky.com/energy101. She also writes, directs and produces spiritually based films where she taps into her spiritual knowledge and awareness channels that into her films.
Candice's philosophy is that we call come with gifts that were meant to be used and that life was meant to be joyful. She states: “We just need to tap into those gifts and clear whatever it is that is holding us back.” Candice uses her intuitive and creative abilities to assist others in their process of discovering their life's path and goals in a gentle and compassionate way.
Her honest and straightforward approach to healing, teaching and her creative pursuits helps others cut to the heart of the matter with issues they require healing and clarification with. She has the ability to put into words, the thoughts and emotions that most have difficulty expressing. By verbalizing heartfelt truths, that often go unspoken, she is often told that she inspires others to go after their own dreams without fear or doubt. Through her intuitive guidance and working with the Angels; clients receive validation and clarification of how they can move forward in their life and heal themselves in a meaningful and down to earth way.
