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.

Radio MD Naturally Savvy – GOOD VIBES DAILY

— Listen Here —

Tune in to Radio MD’s, “Naturally Savvy”, with guest Shaman Isabella Stoloff, and learn how you can use “good vibes” to manifest the life you came here to live!


Your mind can be a treacherous place.  Wherever thought goes, energy follows. Once you’re stuck in a negative vibration and have gone down the rabbit hole, all that rumination takes over… disallowing you from moving forward and creating positive progress.

The problem is compounded by the constant stimuli and access to information in our current society.

How can you stop negative thoughts in their tracks?

Shaman Isabella Stoloff suggests starting with this question: “Is this thought serving me?” The answer is usually no. Being aware can spur you to shift your thoughts to a place of productivity. Essentially, you leave yourself alone and get out of your own way.

Isabella’s Good Vibes Positive Affirmation Cards, which she co-created with her daughter Victoria Craven, help you find those good vibes daily.

Each inspiring card is interwoven with high vibrational energy quotes and step-by-step instructions to assist you in manifesting the life you came here to live. When you release old stories, you create space in your mind to attract your deepest desires.

Listen in as Isabella joins Andrea to discuss the detriment of negative thoughts, as well as how you can shift that which is heavy and unpleasant into positive energy.

Creating Good Vibes in Your Daily Life

Are you feeling there is no way out of the tunnel, no way out of the box you have created for yourself?  Have you been working on yourself but see little results?  Does life seem too much to handle at times?

Many times, we think we have it all figured out. Some of us have tried and tried and tried and still aren’t getting the results we want. So, we settle for what we feel is our lot in life. Many of us have taken tons of seminars and workshops getting all hyped up only to come home and feel let down, as we have been unable to hold onto the vibrations we felt during that time. Here’s the thing. When we are around other like-minded folks, all seeking to improve our lives, it is easy to have a good vibration. But how do we keep it once back to our daily routine?

One way is to shift our perceptions. How I do this is to listen to myself and what I am thinking or saying. As more studies on sound and vibration are telling us everything we think and say carries a certain vibe. This vibe really does affect our surroundings.

Have you ever stopped and listened to what you are saying to yourself or about yourself? Do you allow others to affect your mood? Perhaps you are an Empath absorbing others vibrations. Trust me when I say you can change all of this. All you need to do is to become more conscious of your mind and what it is doing. Listen to what you are saying about yourself and get rid self-limiting beliefs. My new thing is, “How is this thought serving me?” If it is not, I change it. YES! It is that simple.

We all have control over our thinking. It is the one true thing we have control over. We can choose our thoughts at any given time. This is how I began my journey to self-empowerment and inner healing.

In 1991, I had already lived through the dark night of the soul and came out on the other side. It was a long a difficult journey, but I survived. I know that journey has made who I am today. Once I had re-birthed myself I began the journey of learning how to love ME and my inner child. Today, I teach others to do this by showing them how to “Become their own best friend.” When you hear yourself being mean or self-defeating you can say, “Would I talk to a friend this way?” If the answer is no, then change the language. It’s quite simple. I know this may sound crazy but try it, it works! When I hear myself comparing or worrying, I pretend I am a friend and I ask myself questions. I say things like, “What good will worrying do? What would you like to think of instead?” Then I think, “Hmmm, what WOULD I like?” I get excited about new ideas and raise the vibration within myself. Then I make a list in my head or write it down.

In the beginning I could not visualize very well. I am more of a feeler healer. So, I would think about the type of vibrations I wanted to feel every day. I knew I wanted to feel goodness, joy, love, abundant and so on. Then I would think about places I wanted travel or products I wanted to create. Every time my mind wanted to talk to me “realistically” I allowed my inner child to dream, play, and make up her life! It worked. She eventually won. I am living a fantastic, creative, joyful, abundant life. And when things don’t work out I know there is a reason. I trust the next great thing is just around the corner for me.

Did you know it is easier to create a negative thought than it is a positive one? Crazy, right? But it is true. Try it! All day today (and everyday here after) try to just think positive and see what your mind does. You can laugh when the mind gets freaked out or tries to control you with negativity. Help it to overcome itself. I like to play with my mind and my imagination and see what I can create. Since I have been doing this for years now it’s much easier than it used to be. In the beginning, it was very challenging. The mind always won! But like everything, practice makes perfect. So, I encourage you to explore this concept. Use your mind as a creative platform to manifest the life of your dreams!

For years, I wanted to have my own positive affirmation oracle card deck since I had received so much help in the early 90’s from people like Doreen Virtue and Louise Hays and their books and decks. Well, it finally happened! After 2 years of working alongside my daughter Victoria Craven the dream came true! I manifested the “Good Vibes” Positive affirmation deck! Unbelievable, right? It wasn’t easy for sure but it was well worth the effort.

Things happen. I am not always on cloud 9. The difference is I no longer dwell in the past or ruminate over something that is not working out. Today I practice non-attachment. This is something I learned from my teacher Alberto Villoldo and the Four Winds Society. My initiation into Shamanism from them was the place I finally found my own sense of spirituality. A Shaman is a conduit between the physical word and spiritual world. I used what they taught me along with downloads from spirit to create my own practice. I opened the Orange County Healing Center in 2009 and began seeing clients. This eventually turned into leading groups around the world and teaching privately to those who wanted to learn the power of Shamanism. In 2017 I will begin my new adventure, to teach others how to use my “Good Vibes” deck in their daily practice of mediation and mindfulness. I still cannot believe the decks are complete and here waiting to be sold! It’s a dream come true. I have come so far in my life and although I still have things I am working on within myself, my life has never been more beautiful. I am honored The Temple of Light OC asked me to start the new year off with a cover and this article. I am currently in Hawaii with my daughter celebrating her 25th birthday and the birth of our deck! Writing this to you all has brought me much joy but it’s time to hit the beach and soak up the sun!

I will be teaching how to use the deck in February so look me up in the calendar and join me! You can also find the deck, “Good Vibes” in the Temple of Light OC gift shop.

Again, sending you positive vibrations!

Until the next time… Aloha~

3-steps for manifesting during the New Moon Energy!

Tune in and enjoy the fresh New Moon energy…you are sure to manifest your deepest desires!  Focus your attention inwards. Ask the deep questions:

1. What will make my life more meaningful?
2. How can I take care of myself in a whole new way?
3. What can I do to become more conscious?

Write down these questions and as the answers come throughout the day, jot them down. Later tonight, go over these answers and begin to visualize and feel yourself already doing it!

Your feelings are more powerful than you know.

🔶 Manifest! Manifest! Manifest! 🔶
