Meet Erin The Urban Mermaid

Erin solo in the sunlight

My name is Erin, + I am The Urban Mermaid. I am a mother, writer, Intuitive Empath, 5D Soul Guide, Esoteric Healer and Spiritual Business Mentor. I am an Usui Reiki master and I channel the Divine through my psychic tarot and birth chart readings. I work with crystals, essential oils, herbs, candle magick, energy, chakras and more. I have created my #groundedandglam series to help you connect with your highest self, get past your trauma, reparent, face your shadows, shift your energy, balance your chakras and live your best life.

I was born and raised in Brooklyn, NY and moved to San Diego about 10 years ago. I live here now with my partner + soulmate Ryan and our sons Bryson + Christian. My boys are 18 months apart and it is wildddddd. I have written a lot about my experiences in motherhood; the incredible, the difficult, confusing, to be a resource to other new moms and offer help or at least little mom hacks to help get you through! I advocate and educate about breastfeeding as much as I can. I feel the lack of support of breastfeeding leads most moms to quit + I am here to support and share so they feel they have somewhere to turn. My sons are rainbow children and I often talk about raising spiritually gifted children. My old son Bryson is considered "Autistic" here in the 3rd dimension, and while this has come with many challenges, after seeing his gifts on a spiritual level, things turned around for us. I am currently working on creating a platform to support mothers like myself; whether it is helping them understand their children's gift from a 5th dimensional consciousness or helping them cope with the stress this all comes with. You can check out my podcast and YouTube for more about this topic. Check out my blog page for lots of motherhood and family content and how I merge my spiritual and wellness life with my family/mom life.

Somewhere along my journey, I found wellness and knew this was my thangggg. Not just being skinny, not just going to the gym (former gyn rat right here!), but an overall balance of health in my mind, body and soul. This meant ditching chemical ridden cosmetics and household cleaners, honoring and nourishing my body with superfoods, meditation, yoga and learning whatever I could about living a balanced, holistic life. Educating people about the benefits of this lifestyle is truly a passion to me. That’s why I developed my wellness guides and coaching. To teach others a better way of honoring themselves from the inside out. They deserve the self love that comes from eating high vibes foods and honoring your body. These guides are intuitive and carefully curated per person, and infused with little pieces of my soul - haha I mean that figuratively. But I do give so much of me because it’s one of those things I connect to so deeply and just want to share my knowledge. 

Naturally, in my wellness journey, I found spirituality. Actually, I was gifted as child and as I grew up, through no one's fault, my gifts were not nourished and my environment conditioned me, therefore loosing my gifts. After having my first son, something reignited in me. Becoming aware of the energy that surrounds me and how powerful it is, blew my mind. Everything from setting intentions to learning about mantras and breath work and crystals and chakras, it was all so familiar to me, like I'd known of this alchemy for lifetimes. I received my Reiki attunement and I was forever moved. Things just opened up for me. I never thought healing would be my calling but helping a person physically, mentally + emotionally heal brings me the greatest reward. I started seeking answers from my guides, medium and other spiritual friends, and not only did I learn I come from a long line of female healers and empaths, I had a physical third eye opening. I learned had very powerful gifts too, I too had psychic and medium abilties. In 2019 I entered my Dark Night of the Soul. It was a very lonely, intense, deep and suffocating yet completely necessary time on my ascension. I was caught in the 4th dimension. This time period may seem scary, and I won't sugar coat it, it is agony. But I came out the other end a whole new person. I started preforming rituals: alchemical candle magick ceremonies to connect with my highest self and my guides. Messages started flooding in! I was called to study astrology. I have always been intrigued by astrology, but actually started reading birth charts to better parent my very different sons. I learned through my own chart, that not only did I inherit gifts from my family, certain aspects in my chart revealed my intuitive and psychic nature. Birth charts just speak to me and I am able to channel messages and translate them through writing to help others understand their inner selves. (Thanks to my Virgo moon!) I also learned everything I needed to make my business successful was in my birth chart and once I started incorporating that into how I ran my business, I started attracting in my Cosmically Aligned Clients™ and my business grew. My Reiki sessions include crystal and essential oil healing, chakra balancing, sage baths, energy cleansing, oracle card pull and of course healing. I started seeking answers from oracle decks, the more I use them, the more they would hit the nail on the head every time I pulled a card, I find them a great divination tool to assess energy. Tarot started calling my name, from the day I picked up my first Tarot deck, she was like my sister. She guided me and connected me, making me the vessel that channeled the messages from Source. I am now at a place on my ascension where I live from love, openness, neutrality and higher consciousness. I am the Phoenix Rising. I strive to help others reach the 5D as well.
