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.

Our thoughts create our reality!
If you are having a negative thought, see it as a black cord coming from your body. Send white light through the negative thought and cut it away, and create a positive thought in its place. RAISE YOUR VIBRATION! There are many things you can do to increase the positive energy around you, such as open up a sacred space and create an altar for yourself at home. Simple techniques like finding a stone and blowing the negative energy into it can help you begin to let things go! Set yourself free from these negative imprints and watch your world blossom!
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!

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! 🔶
Have a blessed & beautiful day! Peace ~ Shaman Isabella
