“You are but one vibratory note in the Universe. What frequency do you wish to vibrate at?”
Each of us has a divine plan, a mission to accomplish in our lifetime. This idea can be disconcerting, especially if you feel you don’t know what it is or how to accomplish it.
What if I told you just being was enough? You are enough. You are whole. You are complete. Once you truly believe this and start vibrating at this frequency your mission. Your divine plan will come.
Here is an exercise ….
Start with a light hum…hum inside yourself.
How do you feel?
Hum through the feeling. If it is a low or negative feeling see if the humming can help you to raise your vibration out of it. If it is a good or positive feeling already, see how you can make that feeling even higher in your hum. Feel this good vibe in every single cell of your being.
Do this for at least 17 seconds each time your practice. The longer you can hold the vibration the more you will open up your intuition. When you awaken your intuition, you will be able to see your plan/mission more clearly.

As the Good Vibes Gatherings are shaping up, I am reminded to sit still and listen. It is in the listening that I hear spirit.
As I embarked upon this last weekend I knew it might be challenging. It has been awhile since I’ve done group gatherings outside of the Orange County Healing Center, other than down the street at BOTI studio (If you haven’t gone to check them out, Google what they are up to) and I wasn’t sure what to expect.
At the OC Yoga festival, I found a lovely group of open-minded individuals who were ready to step beyond their minds and share their hearts. The one message that truly stood out to me was… how we give our power away… the power of love…
Since I am teaching to love yourself as you love another, I posed this question, “How do you show your love to another?” What struck me hard was this answer, by more than one person, “I try to make them feel special, or worthy…like they are enough.
I cannot tell you how many relationships I was in where I would see a man’s potential, who he could be, rather than who he was. I poured my love into him hoping he would change. Of course this never worked, and I was left with feelings of disappointment or anger, and feelings of not being good enough. Or, even friendships where I was always giving, left with the feeling of being taken advantage of. Once I learned to trust and love myself more these types of relationship’s changed.
After everyone shared, I came back to this point, “If we do not have feelings of worthiness ourselves…if we do not know how special we are… if we cannot feel our own love, this love we pour into others… how can we ever attract it?”
The day after the festival I went to Whittier to hold the next Gathering. Again, I was a bit nervous, as I did not know the type of folks that would come. After all, this was in a restaurant in downtown Whittier! If you haven’t been to the Modern Shaman Kitchen on Greenleaf, you are missing out! It’s totally VEGAN! In WHIITER!!! And they happen to be a couple of groovy people I met many years ago when I did an opening ceremony for a friend in Laguna.
THIS GROUP!!! OMG!!!
People who I’ve never met before open to a group healing (Which, BTW, I had no idea I was doing. I had a whole other class prepared for them). They bared their souls with one another. With open hearts they wanted to feel the shift… and they did. Just like the group Saturday, these loving hearts were ready to LOVE THEMSELVES MORE! The energy was beautiful and we all left glowing.
That morning, before the Whittier gathering, a friend in Durango, CO. reached out. She wanted me to come and bless her land and have a gathering around her medicine wheel. We had been talking about me coming for a couple of years and this
time I said yes! On August 11th, I will be with a whole new group of souls ready to love and open up their hearts to the infinite wisdom within.
When we fall more in love with ourselves, our world will change.
I look forward to being with you in ceremony soon…
In May, after knowing Shaman Isabella for a little over two years, I finally received my first channeled message and healing, which was extraordinary.
“Why did we wait so long to do this?” I asked her.
“Because you weren’t ready,” she replied.
She was right. I hadn’t sought her out for that very reason. The timing wasn’t right. The teacher—or the healer—will appear when you are ready. If you resonate with Isabella, reach out and connect with her. You’ll be glad you did– Scott Ware, Editor
“Listen with your heart, Feel with your mind.” – Good Vibes Cards
My name is Shaman Isabella and I am here to welcome you home to yourself and your connection to infinite love and wisdom. There is a vibration that is unique to you and this vibration connects to the mother, whether you know her as Gaia, Pachamama or Earth.
Somewhere along the way we gave up this connection; we forgot. We gave our power away and allowed material things to control us. But we are in a time of great awakening and discovery.
Now is the time to focus on that which truly matters, ourselves.
Many years ago, I was lost to addiction. I allowed people, places and things to control me. Giving my power away to drugs was a way of life and I was lost. In 1991, I found myself and began a path of consciousness. I worked on my thoughts and behaviors. Even though I only had a 5th grade education, I did everything I could to grow. At the age of 31, pregnant with my youngest child, I went back to school. Finally earning my Associates, Bachelors, and then Masters degree. But, even with all these accomplishments, I didn’t feel truly connected, so I began seeking spirituality.
We have looked outside of ourselves for the meaning of life or why we exist for centuries.
Seeking spirituality has been a notion man has had since the beginning of time. The truth is, everything we are looking for, exists within. We have always had it; we have just forgotten where to look.
In 2006, I had my first Shaman energy healing. My mother was in a home with dementia and had been for a year and a half, with no end in sight. I had been in a relationship that was going nowhere and although I had accomplished a great many things, I still felt very stuck in my life.
One day, while lying in my mother’s bed in the home, I asked her, “What will I ever do without you?” Her meaningful response was, “Everything you need you had all along.”
I called an old friend and she told me she was working with Alberto Villoldo and the Four Winds Society. She said I needed an over-the-phone healing. I remember saying, “Over the phone? How can that possibly work!” She replied, “You believe in energy don’t you? Energy works wherever you are.” I was so desperate…I gave it a go.
You see, my mother had come to me in a waking dream and asked me to get her out of there. The dream was so real to me. I remember telling her, “How can I get you out of there when I can’t get myself out of here?”
I waited anxiously for the healing a month later. When I finally spoke to my Shaman in Chile, she told me I had a past-life with my mom and we had a contract that needed to be broken. I was so afraid I would never see her again. Somewhere deep inside me, I knew in order for us both to grow, I had to let her go. I am so grateful that healing allowed my mother to transition peacefully soon after.
There were many more incredible healings that took place from that moment on.
In 2007, I began to study, but not to become a Shaman. I did it to find those lost pieces of myself, the disconnected, misplaced and unseen parts I’d longed for.
When I opened my home as the Orange County Healing Center in 2009, I had no idea of the magic that would take place, the people I would help, the traveling I would experience and the life I would get to live. I am forever grateful to myself for the journey I have taken. The experiences I’ve had make me who I am today.
In the beginning it was difficult to call myself a Shaman. Who was I to claim a sacred, ancient, indigenous rite? But after years of doing this work, seeing what I have seen and knowing who I am, I can honestly say this is what I was born to do.
The traumas I endured make sense now. They happened so I could help others heal and come back home to themselves in a whole new way.
One of the more profound healings I give assists those who have passed on release old issues and evolve as a soul.
Many times, when clients come in with a particular problem, we can track it back to an ancestral pattern. I can sometimes see the family member that is still attached. Together, we identify the patterns and easily release it and the loved one into their light. This technique is such an honor for as we know, each healing goes 7 generations up and 7 generations down. Once we clear at this level my clients feel lighter and more connected to themselves. Each time this happens it still amazes me. It is a true gift.
Everything that has ever happened to us creates a memory imprint on our light-body and that imprint affects our daily lives. Until we clear those issues, we will continue attracting and creating the same trauma over and over in different ways.
This year marks my 10th anniversary as a Shaman in this lifetime. I am grateful to be able guide you home to yourself and back to the Mother. What I’ve learned is when we meditate in our heart space, tone and connect to the Earth we can bring ourselves home.
Something to do for yourself right now…
There are many ways to connect to the Earth for grounding and creating a state of bliss. One is to sit in the grass with your shoes off or even to just stand there and hum/tone. If you do not have grass, visualize it. Place your hands on your heart and breathe in the beauty of who you are. Feel the tone of your humming in your chest. Try OM and Ah and EE.
I channeled an activation called The Crystal Star-Lite Rites in 2011. I do this along with other ancient healing techniques when a client has a deep wound and a missing piece of their light. I’ve been teaching this in my healer trainings and found it to have amazing results.
Try it for yourself…
Visualize the center of the Earth as a giant crystal and connect to that light. Feel it filling your body with the light. This is your divine rite to be on the planet at this time in the full expression of Who You Are. Use this crystal light to illuminate your entire body, sending the energy up so it shoots out of your Crown Chakra though your higher self and into the stars.
Connect to your highest star (even if you do not know which star that is), feel what is the highest light for you and download more of your own light here. Allow this light to go down into the crystal and back up again. As you do this, call yourself back to yourself. Say, “I claim all of my energy back to me now, clean and clear, I release all energies that are not mine to the light.” Then trust that it is done.
When you feel complete, disconnect from the crystal and bring this new light energy into your solar plexus and say, “I trust my gut, my inner wisdom.” Then disconnect from the star and say, “I trust myself.” Now move some of this clear energy into your heart, for when you always come from a place of love for yourself first, these two intuitive centers grow.
This is a journey. Enjoy the ride of self-exploration.
Each day look for what is working, instead of focusing on what is not. Find those missing pieces and connect to the Earth, for she is your Mother and will always support you. By discovering the healer within, you will feel more connected to Pachamama, the animal kingdom, the plant world and the vibration of life all around you. Connect as often as possible and go within. Become one with yourself and live life to the fullest.
All we need lives within our own heartbeat and that heartbeat is connected to our mother, Mother Earth. By letting go of our old ideas and keeping our vibration high, we will experience a true connection, not only to ourselves, but the world around us.
My daughter Victoria and I created the Good Vibes positive affirmation cards. Pulling a card a day helps you connect to your intuitive nature. These cards contain a instruction booklet with messages and 3-action steps for each card. These steps are meant to help one discover themselves in a whole new way.
My mission is to continue to create community wherever I go. My gift is teaching you how to connect to your heart, your path, your light and the earth. If you would like me travel to your area and speak I offer ceremony. Land clearings and more.

Throughout my existence I knew there was more to life than what I was currently experiencing. I always felt the Universe had a plan for me but by the age of 46 I felt it had not been fully revealed. Timing is everything and life is funny it has way of leading us to where we need to be, even though we might not know it at the time.
In 2006, my mother was in a home and had been there for a year and a half. I was living in Moscow Idaho with my teenage daughter having just graduated with my Master of Fine Arts. Although I had come far in my life, I still felt very stuck.
One night my mother came to me in a lucid dream state and said, “Get me out of here.” I remember saying, “How can I get you out of there when I can’t get myself out of here?”
After that my mother was in my dreams quite a bit. Even though we had our difficulties growing up she and I were extremely close. She was the one who spoke of fairies, past-lives, astrology and psychics. I loved her dearly and still do.
After a month of these dreams I called an old friend who told me I needed to work with a Shaman.
I had never really heard of Shamans other than Native American Indians. But I felt so unhappy at that point I was willing to do anything. So I made an appointment with a woman in Chile, not even truly believing if over the phone would work. My friend had explained that it was just energy and since I believed in energy I trusted the process.
The Shaman found a contract I had made with my mother in a past-life to never leave her side. She asked me if I was willing to break the contract. This was very hard for me as I felt I may never see my mother again in future lives if I did. Something inside of me was stronger than the thought, so I said yes.
Within one month my mother transitioned peacefully in her sleep.
A few months later after having a liver biopsy I almost died. The doctor did not leave me on my side long enough and I bled 4 units of blood into my belly. The pain was intense and I was admitted to ICU. It took months to recover and at some point I realized I was reliving my husbands death.
In 1987 my husband died of cancer of the colon. While at his bedside during his final moments I listened to his labored breath. When he inhaled for the last time his spirit went out of his body and into mine. At the time I had no idea that had occurred, but over the years, I knew he was with me. I had even gone once to a psychic that asked me who the dead person was. I knew it was him. She told me she could only place him in a room for 6 months, but could not get rid of him. I made peace with the fact that this was how I would live my life until my near death experience.
I called my Shaman and told her the story. When she finally extracted his spirit from my energy field I threw up. I was finally free.
When I moved back to California in late 2006, I began taking Shaman classes and learning more about releasing energy. My experiences were so profound there was no denying energy medicine worked.
I now feel my whole life lead up to this moment. All my challenges and hardships brought me to where I am today.
I am grateful for my story, as it is my story and I worked hard for it.
There was a calling and I stepped onto the path and have never looked back. If you feel the healers path is one for you, I invite you to take this short quiz. If you answer yes to 2 or more of these questions you may want to seek out a training program that suits you.
You have to be ready to do the inner work as my feeling is we must heal ourselves in order to become clear channels for others.
Do people often come to you for advice? YES NO
Are you aware of how others are feeling? YES NO
When you walk into a room can you sense the energy? YES NO
Have you always felt there was something more for you in this life? YES NO
Do you want to help others and make the world a better place? YES NO
If you have answered yes to 2 or more of these questions than the healers path is the one for you.
When I first started my training it was not to become a healer, but that is what was written in the stars.
