Aiesha Meshigaud

Wow, where to begin? At the beginning, of course! I just want to mention being elected Homecoming Queen was truly one of the highlights in my life. I was shocked because I really didn't think I was that popular....I didn't get asked to dance or go out much. Also, I was extremely shy and a lot of people thought I was stuck up. Oh well.....

Was Miss Pacific Palisades and Miss Spindrift while attending SMCC ( not the most noble of accomplishments). While I was at SMCC things at home with a step-dad got really bad and I didn't know what to do. Anyway, I ended up marrying Michael Warner, who I only had coffee with a few times. It lasted maybe 6 months with no love lost.

I began my modeling career and was pretty successful. Went to London for about a year. It was the late 60's and I hung with the jet set....many adventures!

Since I was a little girl, I used to daydream about all the things I wanted to do. Well I've done most of them and some things I'd never imagine possible or probable. I was bi-costal for awhile living in the village in NY and in Beverly Hills. Lived in Paris for almost a year where I worked on a French film and did some commercials.

By the middle 80's, I had one of many relationships end and I was back living at home. I was tired and very depressed--nothing in my life seemed to work out. I cried out to God for help and had a dynamic spiritual experience that totally changed my life. I was given gifts that could help people. I studied different healing modalities in order to channels those gifts.

I received the name Aiesha which I use today. I have traveled all over giving spiritual development workshops, teaching meditation and training healers. I met my husband on one of those trips. Love at first sight! We lived in Rockford, ILL for 2 yrs. He wanted to move back to his tribe to help them. So we moved to the Hannahville Potawatomi Indian Reservation in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan where we ran The Community House for 5 years taking in troubled kids first and then adults. The Rez has major drug/alcohol and suicide problems. They cut the funding for the program. We were allowed to keep the house and we have continued to help the community here as spiritual leaders and medicine people. We do not charge for what we do.....we are only the Creator's helpers. We have been here almost 20 yrs and it has been very difficult yet extremely rewarding. My husband, Earl Meshigaud, is now the Cultural Director for the tribe and sits on council.

I was blessed to discover Irving "Francis" Houle who lived in Escanaba - our closest town. A beautiful man who bore the Stigmata of Christ. I used to go to a prayer circle every Tue where he would lay his hands on people and heal them...well, Jesus did!

Oh, almost forgot, I made a documentary film called The Spirit of The Pow Wow.

It is hard to put 50 years in 25 words or less!!!!!!

God Bless You All
