‘Ancestral Knowledge lives within’ is a deep card. When I came to Pisaq, Peru for the first time in 2007, I knew I had come here before. While in a Despacho ceremony, I saw myself as a young girl climbing barefoot through the hills. Then my little brother (who in this life is my older sister) and I were in a cave and I knew we had no parents, and that I must take care of her. Then the Condor came and the vision ended. As many of you know, I pride myself on being a ‘feeler healer’ and do not usually “See”. This experience has left me with deep GRATITUDE for my Ancestral knowledge and past life experiences.

Meet Shaman Isabella Stoloff of Orange County Healing Center in Fullerton
Today we’d like to introduce you to Shaman Isabella Stoloff.
Shaman Isabella, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
I’ve lived many lifetimes in just this one. I’ve learned what it means to grow spiritually and I know now my life, with all its struggle and challenge, made me the woman I am today.
I was born Isabella Leigh Stoloff, the daughter of movie producer, writer, director, Victor Stoloff & Jacquline Craven Stoloff cover model. I am 1st generation American and that means something to me. My mum raised me (pretty much by herself) in the Hollywood Hills and taught me the expansiveness of the Universe. There was no one religion to focus on, no one “type” of person in the world. There was just oneness. From a young age, I knew about spirituality, energy and flow, although at the time I couldn’t put words to it.
But I was a rebel and it was the 60’s.
Running away from home at the age of 14 put me in a variety of circumstances, as you can imagine, but as I said earlier it made me the person I am today. I am in the process of writing a book and treatment for Netflix Originals so I won’t give it all away. Let’s just say, I chose a troubled, crazy life. At the age of 31 I became pregnant with my youngest child Victoria and finally found “myself”. I pulled out of the darkness I had created and focused on the light and cleansing my mind. I stopped giving my power away and went back to school. Reclaiming my life, I began to live.
In 2006 Shamanism took me by storm. I’ve never been the same.
I had graduated with an MFA in performance and was teaching Acting at Fullerton College when life took a turn. I was studying Shamanism with Alberto Villoldo and the Four Winds Society and was about to lead my first group to Peru. The College I was teaching at called and informed me they were letting all Adjunct Faculty go. Now, I could have gone in a downward spiral and become very negative about my circumstances. I had just bought my first home and had no other income. Instead of allowing the “reality” of what was happening take me down, I became even more enthusiastic about guiding my guests to Peru and turned my home into the Orange County Healing Center.
Trust the Universe has your back.
So I trusted and I have not been disappointed. That was 2010. Since then I have lead many trips to Peru and last year I took a group to England. I have traveled to different countries learning and growing within myself. I created a Shaman training program and have a beautiful tribe of clients that have been by my side throughout my journey. I recently developed a positive affirmation deck with my daughter Victoria called Good Vibes. We are going to print with our 2nd edition and have had them translated into Spanish.
Life just keeps getting better.
If you are struggling or feeling challenged in your life, feel free to look around here on my website where you will find videos and blogs filled with inspiration. If you feel called book a session and experience the healing for yourself. It is beautiful. I am honored and blessed to be on a spiritual path with the ability to assist others in moving forward. I invite you to join our Tribe.
We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
This is a very interesting business as you must focus on the positive and keep your energy high. Of course, there are strugglesbut it is all about keeping a positive outlook and shifting your mind when the going gets tough.
We’d love to hear more about your business.
The Orange County Healing Center is a place where people come together for ceremony and workshops that assist with tuning into your inner wisdom and intuitive nature. I see clients on a one-on-one basis as well as in group settings. Energy healing consists of chakra balancing and soul retrieval as well as life-coaching. Everything that has ever happened to us creates a memory imprint on our light body. This imprint can cause us to feel heavy or stuck in our lives; unable to move forward. The techniques I use from the Andes mountains and Amazon Jungle help in releasing old vibrations so you can tune into yourself in a whole new way.
I pride myself on quality care and my Yelp reviews really show that.
By teaching mindfulness and how to become conscious in the moment I give my clients tools for success. It is truly easier than one thinks. People mention, when they walk in for a healing, how they can feel the energy in the room is different, more clear. When they leave they comment on how much lighter they feel. The OC Healing Center definitely has a vibe of its own.
A few times a year we have fire ceremonies and classes focusing on getting more in touch with ourselves. These are wonderful for diving deeper on your spiritual path. These gatherings are fun and energetic, a great place to meet people and expand your consciousness.
Our next journey to Peru is in October 2017. The energy in the Sacred Valley is incredible. Contact me if you are interested in being on the list for future events; email@example.com
What were you like growing up?
When I was very young I was a spit fire. I once organized a walk-out on our 5th grade teacher because he continually called us morons and idiots. Obviously, that didn’t go too well and I was suspended. I am grateful I grew up in the 60’s and 70’s for they were decades of great change. I believe we are in a new time of change, a change in ourselves. Once we take control of the way we think and become more mindful in our lives, we can let go of the past and create the life we’re mean’t to live.

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.
When 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.

For the stargazers out there, the Orionid Meteor Shower peaks this weekend and has been creating a dazzling display across the sky for those lucky enough to see it. This is a perfect time to align your energy with our planet and the Universe by practicing grounding yourself!
Grounding is an important tool in manifesting and tapping into your inner light, but how does one ground?
One way is to get your feet in the dirt. Take off your shoes and stand in the yard, whether on grass or dirt, the earth has energy to assist you in grounding your energy. (Try this tonight while looking for those ‘shooting stars’!)
But what if you cannot get to dirt? It is as simple as taking a breath. Take a deep breath in and concentrate on moving your energy into the Earth. Take a few deep belly breaths and imagine you are going into the mother. Our beautiful Mother Earth is here to guide you and answer your prayers. Feel your heart deeply connecting with her, as you ground your energy and trust all will be well.
When you set a clear intention for manifesting and ground it in the earth the Universe hears you, and as it is the law will give you what you truly desire. I like to say, “Highest and best good, no harm to anyone,” when I ask the Universe to support me. Feel the love of Pachamama and know deep in your heart that you deserve the best!
Ground yourself daily. Have a blessed and beautiful week, Tribe!
