Blake Octavian Blair noticed his spiritual gifts at a young age and he has continued continued to grow and develop them ever since.
Blake endeavors to use his gifts and abilities to help others. He uses his gift of clairvoyance when called upon to communicate with the spirit world. He is also a talented tarot reader, offering insight and guidance through this medium.
Also a healing facilitator, Blake is a Shamanic Pracitioner and Reiki Master-Teacher and uses these techniques to assist clients along their personal life journeys. He also teaches classes in Traditional Usui Reiki.
In 2011 Blake was ordained as a priest by Rev. Dan Chesbro into the Order of Melchizedek, a non- denominational, non-discriminating, interfaith order that is part of The Sanctuary of the Beloved. The Order is service oriented and is dedicated to the goals of teaching and healing. The celebration of spiritual and religious diversity by this order as well its focus on teaching and healing made ordination into the Order of Melchizedek a perfect fit for Blake. As a legally ordained minister in all fifty states, Blake is pleased to be able to serve where the services of clergy are needed.
Blake holds a degree in English/Cultural Studies and Religion from the University of Florida. He has also trained extensively with the Foundation for Shamanic Studies as well as with other teachers. Blake's spiritual path is eclectic with an emphasis on shamanic practices, blending elements of Eastern spiritual traditions such as Hinduism and Buddhism, and Western traditions of ceremonial magick and NeoPaganism.
The intersection of music, spiritual practice, and healing is also an area of exploration for Blake. He forms half of a musical duo with his husband, Gwain Nighthawk, creating a special brand of shamanic inspired world fusion with Native American style flutes, world scale rim-blown flutes, world percussion, and didgeridoo.
Blake is a practicing vegetarian, published author, avid reader, and crafter. He beads jewelry, makes ritual incense, enjoys wreath making, and enjoys knitting. He currently resides in the Piedmont region of North Carolina with his loving husband.
