enter into
the unseen

Welcome to possibility. Welcome to all your future potentials. Welcome to everything that exists beyond what our eyes can observe and comprehend.

Are you ready to embark upon an
undertaking of this magnitude?

 
Do you yearn to be in a safe place so you can allow yourself to be seen and supported without the need to perform?

Do you desire to grant yourself the permission to be yourself, and to be genuinely original?

Do you wish to connect to your ancestral energetics, as well as your individual essence?
 
Are you seeking clarity, purpose, and direction?

Are you sick of the wellness (hellness) myth?

Are you wanting to truly belong, without the need to contort or distort, and disrupt the ‘need’ to be part of the “popular spiritual folks” cliques?

Do you stand for spiritual equity versus spiritual privileging?

Are you ready to grant yourself the permission to be yourself, to be genuinely original?

Do you desire to re-member, return, and rediscover your voice, your magick, your connection to the Unseen?
 

If you’ve said YES to the questions above, then you’re right at home. Welcome to CEREMONIE.

 

The vessels through which I share my knowledge with seekers are varied, encompassing E-COURSES, the MYSTERY MENTORSHIP PROGRAMPRIVATE SHAMANIC READINGS and DREAM INTERPRETATIONS, and handcrafted Healing Plant SKIN and AURA Care products. Yet regardless of the form or medium, each of my offerings serves just one aim: to impart my learned wisdom to those who are eager to discover their soul’s purpose.

I invite you to discover the
power of the Unseen.

WHAT IS THE UNSEEN?

“The Unseen” is the term I use to describe the Great Mystery; the reality that lies beyond our three dimensional reality. The Unseen refers to what we know in our heart of hearts to be real and true, even though we’ve been told it is merely fiction. The Unseen is primordial wisdom and ephemeral fullness; it holds power, beauty, magick, healing, potential, synchronicities, the indescribable, and the eternal. The Unseen refers to what is living within and alongside us, and what exists beyond us. It is a reminder to us that humans are simply part of existence, not the centre of it.

In my experience of the Unseen, I can hear, smell, sense, and speak with spirits, with the animate and inanimate, with the Elements, with archetypes and alter egos, and with my ancestors who came before me. This coexistence is liberating, fulfilling, inspiring, nuanced, and can also be challenging and terrifying — not because spirits and magick are frightening, but because I was once afraid to face my inner demons and shadows. Through my own healing, I began returning to myself, and the more myself I became, the more tuned in I became. The Unseen is meant to be seen.

My metaphysical practice involves:

  • Spirit travelling and Spirit Communication
  • Psychic Smelling and Medium Ship
  • Magickal spells, shapeshifting, and other forms of witchcraft and ritual work
  • Working with healing plants as folk medicine
  • Interpreting symbolic languages shared with me via the Motherpeace Tarot, dream work, and core shamanic journeying as a means of divination


In ancient Chinese mystical traditions, this multi-disciplinary metaphysical practice is called 巫 – Wu or Wuism. I have sometimes wondered if the modern term ‘woo-woo’ originated from my culture’s term, Wu.

ESOTERIC TERMINOLOGY

In New Age culture, where spirituality is often diluted and appropriated, I feel it’s important to define a few frequently used words:

Animism: The ancient wisdom and practice that natural objects, phenomena (such as weather), and other inanimate things are living, possess personality, are filled with spirits, and have the capacity to offer wisdom and spiritual healing.

Core Shamanism: In combination with Animism, Shamanism is the oldest form of spirituality found by anthropologists. It’s important to note that it exists across many cultures and continents, and was first seen in matrilineal cultures (including my own as a Han Taiwanese). Shamanic healing consists of a practitioner traveling through varied states of consciousness via ecstatic dance, rattling, shamanic drumming, altered breath, consumption of plants (in my case, common non-psychedelic plants), and other rituals to interact with spirits and bring back messages that yield resolution and transformation.

Divination: The practice of viewing a situation with immense depth to see what is below the surface, and looking into likely pasts and future potentials. Practitioners of witchcraft, dreamwork, and shamanism are all able to divinate. The ‘language’ of divination is very often visual: nature omens, Tarot readings, shamanic journeys, or the nuanced symbols found in dreams.

Magick: The intention or action undertaken to manifest personal transformation or noticeable change. I intentionally use the ancient spelling of the word (‘magick’) rather than the term ‘magic’, as a way to differentiate my discussion of magick from illusionism and Hollywood magic. The vein of magick I practice is Chaos Magick — a style that cuts through the extraneous to work directly with energy currents for practical results.

Necromancy: The practice of connecting to the dead. In my case, this is mainly with ancestral spirits, spirits of loved ones who have passed on, and deceased pet spirits. This is an agnostic method, which means the dead can be accessed via core shamanic journeying, witchcraft, other forms of ritual work, and dream work.

Occultism: The serious study of the action or influence of supernatural energies and powers (magick), oftentimes in ritual. 

Plant Spirit Healing + Plant Magick: Respecting and revering the consciousness of plants, I work with specific botanicals to achieve clearing, protection, healing and emotional and spiritual equilibrium. As with most forms of magick, the effectiveness of this ancient practice is rooted in the practitioner’s relationship with the plant’s own energy. Folk medicine still exists today, such as in Chinese Herbalism within the Traditional Chinese Medicine system.

Shapeshifting: Being mercurial is a quality of a witch, shamanic practitioner, and occultist. It’s defined as “changing form or identity at will”, most often energetically, but it can also be tangibly noticed in behaviour and other physical qualities of the shapeshifter. Both shamanism and witchcraft employ this method of magick to facilitate positive change and healing.

Witchcraft: Contrary to shamanism, where the practitioner travels to the beyond, witchcraft mainly focuses on inviting the spirit beings here to our physical world. Methods often include spells, inner visioning, and rituals that invoke energies and spirits. Lunar and astral alignment, magickal correspondences, spiritual symbolism, the elements, sensing frequencies and resonance, talisman and sigil making, and working with spirit companions are key aspects of witchcraft.

WELCOME FROM MIMI

Welcome!

My name is Mimi Young, and I am a Han Taiwanese Canadian living, working, and playing on the unceded and traditional territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and Sel̓íl̓witulh (Tsleil-Waututh) nations – what is otherwise known as Vancouver, Canada. I am also a spirit communicator who will guide you to access the Unseen through witchcraft, core shamanism and the occult. We all have intuitive gifts and magickal abilities; some of us simply need some support and encouragement as we find our way back to our inner wisdom and agency. 

As a woman of colour who is a shamanic intuitive, witch, occultist, and spiritual guide, my work is to guide and walk alongside you during your soul’s journey along the path of mystical practice with depth, integrity, and real wisdom.

Whether you seek to access the Unseen through a plant potion from my Skin + Aura collection, to study a single esoteric topic via my Spirit Study Courses, or to enroll in a more in-depth magickal study through my Mystery Mentorship program, I offer you grounded, practice-based expertise rooted in my experience and ancestral heritage. (In ancient Chinese traditions, this multi-disciplinary metaphysical practice is called 巫 – Wu or Wuism). Quite simply, I will help you learn how to see again; to see the Unseen.

Though I have possessed psychic gifts for my entire life, the pivotal point in my journey was when I began spirit travelling “by accident” during five months of bedrest while pregnant with my second child. As I have blended these gifts with my diverse career background that includes design, education, and clean tech, I have developed a strong conviction to avoid the posturing and the clichés of spirituality. It is deeply important for me to be real and to be me. Likewise, in my approach to magick and psychic mediumship, I do not water anything down.

My work has been celebrated by Goop, Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, and Refinery29. I’ve also had the immense joy and honour to have been a guest on podcasts including Almost 30, Hey Girl, So You Think You’re Intuition, Healers, and Living Open and more.

As I say in my unconventional WORKING WITH MIMI TERMS,

Walk with me with respect, and you will be met with honour.

Walk with me with willingness and openness, and you will be met with open heart and open arms.

Walk with me with honesty, and you will have my heart.

 

Yours,

Mimi

“Words can barely express my experience so far in the Mystery Mentorship. I stumbled upon Mimi’s work about a year ago. I booked a private reading with her that spoke to me on such a profound soul level I almost felt as though I was in shock. It brought tears to my eyes (a big deal for this recovering ice queen!) and for the first time in a long time I was waking up remembering my dreams. Long vivid dreams that began teaching me. So when I first found out that she would be offering a mentorship I knew I had to be apart of it. It has been about 5 weeks now. It has been transformational to say the least. So often I think we can read about or hear about “doing the work” but there is a disconnect between reading about something, and then actually doing it. Mimi has the beautiful gift of creating a space that encourages your own unfolding, whatever that may look like for you. In these past couple of weeks I have started building connections to ancestors, animal spirit allies, plant allies and even food in ways I never imagined possible. Learning about my gifts, my shadows, and how I am and am not showing up for myself. Even my relationship to the tarot, which I have had for many years now has shifted and grown deeper with journeying...and we haven't even gotten into the tarot lessons yet!!! It has only been a short amount of time, and already I am not the woman I was at the beginning of this mentorship. I feel like I am being cracked open and finally stepping into the person I was intended to be. Life has gotten more magical and my heart feels full of gratitude for this opportunity.”

“When I booked the retreat with Mimi, I was honestly just looking forward to some well needed rest and healing time on the Sunshine Coast. What I got was a full on experience in Wonderland, falling down the rabbit hole and coming home... to myself. Through Mimi's guided journeying, dream analysis as well as the shared stories in our circle of women- a deeper level of healing was initiated. I left the retreat more confident in myself, more in tune with my heart and truly open to a different way of living. There are no words that can describe my appreciation for working with Mimi and our Circle. This work is not for the faint of heart for it truly opens you up to a magical whole hearted life- and you'll never want to go back to the old way. So if you're ready to come home to yourself, to shake things up- why not follow Mimi down the rabbit hole and explore Wonderland for yourself?”
