Shaman Isabella Stoloff

I began my Shaman path in 2006 and since that time have been assisting my clients in creating a high vibrational life for themselves and their families. As an empath, I understand what it means to be sensitive to the energy around me. Using a variety of ancient healing techniques from the Andes mountains and Amazon jungle, I am able to help you let go of the past so you can learn to trust your intuition and follow your path. Chakra balancing, Soul retrieval along with spiritual mentoring as well as house blessings and ceremonies are included in my healing work. Guiding my clients on spiritual journeys/tours to connect with the Chakras associated with the planet brings me much joy. I look forward to assisting you in growing your spiritually, and feeling confident in your being.
“I humbly understand that spirit works through me to assist you in remembering your light. I find that assisting others in raising their vibration is key to the evolution of the planet. I am grateful for all of my experiences and enjoy teaching others to do the same. Gratitude is one of the highest vibrational words we have.”
