Past wounds can get stuck in your energy field and chakra body creating feelings of lack and fear as well as many other issues. Becoming conscious of how you feel is key. Throughout the day check in with yourself and see how you are feeling. Notice how you feel around certain people. Do this exercise with no judgment; just observe.
When you feel as if you are getting triggered breathe and ground yourself. You can do this by simply imagining your feet are like the roots of a tree. Anchor into your divine line and attach it to the front of your spine. Breathe again and notice if this person is still able to trigger you or if you can fill yourself up with yourself and let it go. Connecting with our inner children can help with this.
Before we say good-bye to January let us say hello to the Super Full Moon energy. The peace and calm that is available to you this week can be felt the entire year. Tap into your unique authentic way to connect to the divine and breathe.
Here is a little meditation you can do today to open up your awareness and connect to the moon:

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; firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
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!
Hello, Blessed Tribe! While in Puerto De Andraitx, Spain, I found the most amazing Pharaoh in the mountain. Feel the ancient energy and tune into how stones can help you release all that no longer serves you. I always say, “Blow it in the stone” — doing this can clear and balance your chakras. Try it sometime when you’re feeling uptight and see if you feel a difference!
