Voyage LA: Interview with Shaman Isabella

A Journey of Transformation

A Journey of Transformation —
As seen in Radiance Magazine July/Aug 2017

I was in no way prepared for the awakening that was about to occur…

It was the summer of 2007. My mother passed away the year before and her death devastated me. I was in fear around finances and had yet to land a job in the field I was working so hard towards.

The last thing I felt I should be doing was running off to Peru on a spiritual journey.

But I had such a profound healing experience with the amazing Shaman from Chile, Marcella Lobos, that when she suggested I go with the Four Winds Society, I tuned in and listened.

Shaman Isabella StoloffWhen we landed in Cusco, the music that came on the plane was my mother’s favorite song by the artist Enya and I knew then that I had her blessing.

The moment I stepped upon the land I could feel a peaceful vibration. The air was clean and crisp, the people smiling and friendly. I felt as though I had gone back in time, and in a way I had.

We all got on a big bus and headed to the Sacred Valley. As we passed the snowcapped mountains (called the Apus) I could feel their energy and strength in every fiber of my being. We learned about the medicine men and women of the Andes, the Q’ero. I heard the word Ayni for the first time and the idea of reciprocity as a Universal law. I understood being open to give and receive is at the core of their teachings.

Although I had not yet fully claimed my role as Shaman I could feel the call begin to rise and was honored to be answering.

When I came home from that trip to Peru my life unfolded in unimaginable ways. Insecurities that had once plagued me began to disappear. I was finally connecting to my spirit guides and trusting my intuition like never before.

Two years later, I was guided by spirit to open my home as the Orange County Healing Center. I began leading groups to the sacred sites of Peru and England. On New Year’s Eve 2009, I lead a group to Peru to anchor in the masculine and feminine energies. While the Peruvians were dancing in the streets we headed up to the Temple of the Moon in the pouring rain to install medicine rites under the stars. It was magical and I feel honored to have been there.

I want to take this opportunity to personally invite you to join me on my next spiritual pilgrimage to the Sacred Valley of Peru, October 12-21, 2017. Each day will be filled with deep connection and wisdom teachings.

This is a journey of awakening, a journey to your soul.

WAKING UP

Waking Up

“WAKING UP” by Shaman Isabella Stoloff
— As seen in GlitterLodge Magazine

For years I slept and allowed mainstream media to feed my soul. It told me what to wear and what to eat and what toys to buy my children. Television gave me a sense of security when my mom was at work and allowed me to zone out as I grew into an adult. The magazines shouted from their stands about movie stars lives and the latest weight loss fad. I worried about what other people thought of me, was afraid to dance in public and felt less than my peers.

I was a giver. I would bend over backwards to help you and focus my attention on the one person who didn’t like me. I was self conscious, unaware and lost. The funny thing is I had no idea that all of these things were a distraction from myself. It never occurred to me that I was escaping from looking within.

As an empath I had no emotional boundaries and spent much of my time worried about how others felt. My mind was constantly full, bouncing from one thought to another. I had no idea where I ended and you began. In relationships I was the pleaser, molding myself to be what you wanted. But in my late 30’s I found myself exhausted and spent. I had hit an emotional wall.

I wasn’t raised with any foundation in religion. My mother felt it best to raise me with knowledge of all the religions, not focusing on any one specific type. At the time this was confusing but now I am grateful for I see the common threads and have a strong spiritual connection.

Feeling the world and what others are going through is a blessing and a curse. The curse is being unsure of whether or not the feeling is yours, and the blessing is being able to see things from many different points of view. But in order to get to this point you must wake up and see who you really are.

When I fully woke up and began to see how I work in the world, I was able to put my life into perspective. I began with journaling. I would write out all that had happened in my life and at times I would burn the writings. This was way before Shamanism came into my life and I learned the power of writing and releasing. I forgave myself and others for the pain caused and learned to turn guilt into gratitude. I worked with my mind, finding ways to reprogram my thinking. And I began to love myself.

Learning a new way to walk in the world can be challenging but it is worth it. You are the most important person. You matter. And what you think of yourself is by far more important than what society says.  Wake up to yourself and release judgments.  Watch your words and thoughts. Become the observer of your life and shift what no longer serves you. All of these techniques will bring you closer to yourself and your spirituality.

If you are a giver, learn to become open to receive. Know that when you receive you are still giving and this is the law of the Universe, to be in the flow.

When I stepped into my calling as a Shaman I had no idea it would evolve in the way it has. But I was open to receive, I was open to myself and I was ready to do the inner work.

If you are just waking up or consider yourself awake and don’t feel fully connected yet, begin empowering yourself. Use positive, loving self-talk along with releasing techniques to clear your energy body. Make peace with your past and see things from a birds eye view. You have power over your life, your truly do.  Find what makes you happy and pay attention to the moment. By learning to stay present you will find an awakened sense of being.

Remember your uniqueness in the world and wake up to your divine sense of self. See your inner light as a beautiful energy and attach that light firmly to the front of your spine. Ground this light into the Earth and know you are loved

Colorado Mountain Meditation

Greetings from the mountains of Colorado where I an anchoring in the energy for Earth Day and our future shamanic journey to Peru this fall. We need the bringers of light to hold space for others who will awaken to peace, serenity, non-attachment and joy. Take a deep breath in and out, knowing that you are divinely guided and protected at all times. Be that which you wish to see in the world!

Happy April!

Happy April! I feel this month is going to be a high energy month. Mercury goes retro April 9th-May 3 so use this time to get yourself moving and create or finish projects. My mother always said, “Dear, when Mercury goes retrograde take a breath at the stop light before hitting the gas”. I have taken this advice to heart and when the light changes I breathe. Many times I’ve seen a car coming in the other direction run the light. If I had not waited and breathed they would have hit me.

| LESSON FOR THE DAY |

“Take time to move consciously through your day and you will find happiness all around you.”

At the moment I am writing to you from Sedona. Beautiful red rock mountains, birds eating from my friends feeder and hummingbirds flying about. I flew up to help a friend move home. My friend took me to a metaphysical store in Scottsdale called “A Peace of the Universe.”

It’s a little store nestled in the corner of a large mall type structure. Many of the stores are abandoned. The previous owner was there and told us the land was on an ancient Indian burial ground and only those with a high vibe were allowed to stay. The new owner Drew ordered 10 decks to sell and I taught them the “Wake-up” song I learned in Ibiza, Spain. What an incredible moment in time.

Thank you for sharing my journey and know I am available for one-on-one healings on Skype or FaceTime while traveling.

Many of my clients have had healings with me all over the world. In this way they became part of the grid work, balancing the masculine and feminine energies, which is so much a part of what I do.

Please share these newsletters with family and friends as the more awakened we become the faster our planet will heal.
With much love
Shaman Isabella
