Meet Kara

Hi, I’m Kara!

I’m a scientist, storyteller, and mystic-in-training. Throughout my life, I’ve learned through trial-and-error how to step into my power and create the reality of my dreams. And now I want to share what I’ve learned with you!

Whether you’re “left-brained” or “right-brained” (which technically isn’t accurate but it’s a useful metaphor ๐Ÿ˜‰ ), I want to share some quick and easy ways to add some magickal flare to your life.

I’m taking what I’ve learned from my mystical experiences and sharing easy-to-use tips so you can add a Mystic Twist to your everyday life.


You might be thinking, “what makes you an expert?” Great question. I’ve spent years studying the Mystical Arts, but I’m still constantly learning and honing my skills. Regardless of the information I share, you should always test your inner knowing and discern if something is a right fit for you or not.

I’ve been a Mystic my entire life, I just didn’t know it. When I was about eleven-years-old, I had multiple supernatural experiences. I wasn’t alone when I had these experiences and many of my friends were witnesses with me, so I knew I wasn’t crazy or that it was some fluke. This made me wonder, “reality is stranger than we think” or “maybe magick does exist.” But neither my agnostic family or religious friends could explain what happened in these experiences. There was so much about the world that I didn’t understand, and I wanted to understand it for myself.

So I decided to learn all that I could about the world.

Dr. in the house!

During my schooling and early Internet adventures, I studied East-Asian culture and languages, history, ancient mythologies, and religions around the world. I taught myself how to code (before it was cool), became obsessed with playing and making video games, and studied the human psychology behind motivation and technology. Eventually, I became a scientist and engineer, earning a Ph.D. in Technology, Media & Society from the University of Colorado. I taught kids and adults alike how to learn new skills in fun and creative ways. Because of my creative tech background and teaching skills, I created a lucrative career in Silicon Valley, where I continue to consult hundreds of Universities and Fortune 500 companies around the world.

But I saw in the academic “Ivory Tower” that science didn’t have all the answers, and in many ways, creates similar theological dogmas. After all, the knowledge from science about the workings of the universe does point to the same information that I learned about in ancient mythologies! So I decided that if I was ever going to figure this life out and how it works, I needed to learn about Spirit. But I refused to join any occult cults or negative belief systems that I saw so many fall prey to.

Yes, mystics can have duck-faces ๐Ÿคฃ

Through perfect synchronicity, I found my mystical teacher and mentor, Inelia Benz—I can’t emphasize enough how amazing Inelia and her work is! She is the most “objective” yet insightful source of knowledge that I have ever come across (and that says a lot if I do say so myself). But don’t take my word for it, do the research yourself and check out her work.

I ‘graduated’ from my spiritual mentorship with Inelia in 2017, which I must admit, was far more difficult than earning my Ph.D. I started my mystical training in 2019 and have been training ever since. It’s like earning my second Ph.D. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I am also a founder of iBenz Academy, where I am co-creating an online Mystery-free school with an AMAZING team so that we can teach this information as broadly as possible.

The more I study science, technology, and mysticism, the more I see how everything in the Cosmos is literally connected.

This website will give you easy-to-use tips and tools to add a Mystic Twist to your life.


So I’ve taken what I’ve learned throughout my life and distilled it down into easy-to-follow steps and guidelines that you’ll find throughout this website. Whether you read my articles, watch my YouTube channel, or check out our formal training at iBenzAcademy.com, you’ll not only start to see the connection between the mystical connection between the Cosmos, you, and Spirit of Creation, you’ll start to experience it firsthand.

As both science and mysticism taught me—direct experience is the only way to Know for yourself.

I hope you’re excited as I am for you to start adding a Mystic Twist to your life! Once you start to see for yourself just how powerful you truly are, you can’t go back to living a life of loneliness, boredom, or even depression.

As you change, your reality changes around you.


Don’t believe me? Replicate the experiment yourself, just like any other good scientist or mystic would do ๐Ÿ˜‰

So are you ready to raise your vibration and add a Mystical Twist to your life?

In Joy, Light, and Love
