Stephanie Ryan

Akashic Records | Reiki Master/Teacher | Founder of Angelic Chakra Integration

Stephanie is an intuitive, healer, and founder of Angelic Chakra Integration. She is also the owner of Illuminations.

Stephanie has always been a spiritual seeker.  When she was 18, she began to meditate.  Through meditation, she began to receive information from divine source.  The messages spoke frequently of love and forgiveness.  Although she held the messages in her heart, she didn’t meditate anymore, and the messages ceased for over 10 years.  In 2007, Stephanie's world shifted.  She learned about energy healing and began studying A Course in Miracles.  She was amazed that the messages were so similar to the truth she had already received.  It was a great relief to find out other people had these similar beliefs. 

In December 2010, Stephanie received seven energetic healing symbols from seven Archangels that correspond to each chakra. She has embarked on a journey to discover uses for these symbols including bringing the chakras into balance, activating the archangels, and receiving angelic messages. In 2015, Stephanie began teaching these energetic healing symbols, called Angelic Chakra Integration, to others. She also teaches classes on the Akashic Record and Reiki.

Stephanie currently offers Angelic Chakra Integration, Reiki, and Akashic Record Readings. She specializes in working with clients that have blockages or phobias that need to be released.

 Stephanie lives in Marion with her husband, Shannon, and two large cats.  She graduated from Coe College with a Bachelor's degree in English.  She believes that literary analysis gave her skills needed to interpret the imagery she receives in her readings and energy work.  Stephanie looks forward to being of service to our community as we walk our unique spiritual path.

Seeker | Mystic | Mentor

In 2009 I stepped into the deep healing world of earth-based spirituality; soon after I found my first Tarot deck and have been exploring and reading the Tarot ever since.

I have also continued to explore various methods of healing and divination with the goal of personal healing and self-discovery. In this introspective journey, I had come to recognize, accept, and nurture many parts of my soul’s blueprint and qualities that had yearned to be seen.

In 2016 my spiritual path shifted from solely being self-nourishing to answering the call to help others in their own growth and expansions. This shift led me to Reiki 1&2 training and receiving the Munay Ki transmissions; in 2017 I also completed the Illuminations Modern Shamanism course resulting in my Ordainment and an inner approval to step into my Spiritual Advisor role more fully.

As a curious and continual student of many modalities I combine the lessons learned, skills gained and tools acquired to provide unique and custom guidance.

Using my “Seeker, Mystic, Mentor” philosophy, we can explore nearly any topic or challenge while navigating your soul’s unique blueprint. As a certified spiritual healer, I aim to provide soul-level healing that moves to the center of who you are in order for you to live freely and unobstructed. I am honored to support the expansion of your “humanness” and serve as a witness as you show up authentically, aligned, and fulfilled in your SOUL-LED LIFE!

Jen offers Shamanic & Reiki Healing sessions; Spiritual Guidance; Sigil Energy Activations; Tarot & Intuitive Readings.

Karen Scott

LMT, Reiki Master

My mission at Inikana Massage Therapy is to have my clients feel fulfilled with spirit and to come away from the massage and/or healing with physical wellbeing and a sense of completeness with body, mind, and soul.

As a licensed massage therapist, spiritual healer, and certified Usui and Kundalini Reiki Master Practitioner, I strive to always create custom experiences to meet my client’s healing needs through spiritual work in addition to physical bodywork.

I graduated from Carlson College of Massage Therapy in 2012 and am an ongoing student of alternative and complimentary healing modalities.  I also studied Shamanic healing and learned about the chakra system and its effects on the body, mind, and spirit.

My real passion is working with people to assist in their healing process by integrating the healing of body, mind, and spirit through western medicine and eastern philosophy ( ie.  Acupressure, energy work, chakra work, therapeutic touch, and aromatherapy).  I love to make someone feel better!

I believe that if you are honest in your passion and compassion to help others that passion will show through in all that you do.

I was inspired to do this work by a community of loving, wonderful people that were changing the world by caring for others and making a difference through the use of massage, energy work, and spiritual teachings.

Meditation, massage, energy work, dance, creativity stemming from sewing, and yoga have been an important part of living my life well balanced.

So now that you know a bit about me, I would love to get to know a little about you and to get you started on the path to your physical, emotional, and spiritual health and wellbeing.

Client testimonial: Meditative, intuitive, and caring, Karen offered a unique healing massage attending to all aspects of my well being. Lori

Medium, Psychic, Reiki Master, Intuitive, Reflexologist 

 

Greetings, it will be my pleasure to partner with you on your healing journey.  I too have had life questions, challenges, fears, pains, and uncertainties causing me to reach for help.  Today I am here for you.

So who am I? I am a teacher, healer, psychic, medium, consultant, and one who is grateful for each breath I am given.

Many years ago while at the Mayo Clinic having brain surgery, I was taken to the Other Side.  From that point on, my life has been forever changed.  Years of recovery and adjustment taught me to trust and accept the uniqueness of my nature: the gifts I was born with.  Today I use those gifts in my work as a trained medium, intuitive/psychic, ICRT Reiki Master Teacher, Healing Touch practitioner, and reflexologist.  I provide sessions, consultations, presentations, and workshops.  Given my journey I also specialize in healing energy work with those facing medical issues.

With over 20 years of experience, I carry deep gratitude and joy for each breath, each day, each form, each bit of life on this Earth, and the flame of love we carry deep within ourselves.  Let me help you celebrate yours!

Gretchen Little

Creativity Coach & Metaphysical Teacher

Gretchen has been aware of the unseen world all of her life, starting with listening to the nonverbal messages of the plants and rocks in her mom's garden to having an almost telepathic connection with animals. She was always very creative and sensitive, trained in music and art. In 1990, after discovering that if she prayed for healing for someone it often happened, she became interested in alternative healing modalities which led to the formal study of Healing Touch in 1991. Informally she taught herself to read the cards, go on shamanic journeys, perform magical rituals, and get messages from angels through writing. After practicing all of these things on her own for a decade she spontaneously went into a self initiation process that started just after 9/11 and ended just after Christmas 2001. When she came out the other side of that she found that she was getting very accurate details about people who had died. She had gone from being a highly intuitive mind reader to a full blown psychic medium. In the next few years she became a Reiki Master and a Licensed Massage Therapist. She began to experiment with drawing intuitive portraits of people's souls and spirit guides, only recently learning that that's considered a form of mediumship in the Spiritualist church.

Always concerned with the practical side of “woo-woo” stuff, she has made it her mission to give clients (and sometimes random strangers) the clearest, most pinpoint verbal evidence to show that she has a loved one on the line from the Other Side. She also does her best to give messages from angels, fairies, animal spirits – just about anybody in the Unseen Realms – that can be taken home and put to use immediately. She often ends up telling clients their soul purpose no matter what type of reading she started out with. This information comes through in a way that is not just an abstract idea but rather something that can be worked with right away. She has a distinct ability to be the voice for the client's Soul and let the Soul, itself, tell the client its heart's desire. Because of this, no two readings are alike, although there are similar patterns. She is committed to bringing magic back to every day life while encouraging everyone's True Self to express itself in the world. She is happiest when teaching people how to access their own inner genius.

Sayde Lorelei

Yoga Instructor

I have been practicing yoga for nearly two thirds of my life now. In the beginning I just wanted to sleep better, but through the practice of yoga, I eventually discovered other benefits. With increased strength, calmness and serenity I came to understand the holistic union of mind, body and spirit.

Some of us need yoga to find peace of mind.

Some of us need yoga to build strength.

Some of us need yoga to regain the freedom we once felt in our bodies as children.

Some of us need yoga to learn how to just sit and breathe.

Each decade of my own practice has brought a new challenge, a chapter to share, deep understanding of the body that hosts our divine energy. Schooling brought a BA in Political Science with a minor in Theater Arts from the University of Iowa with many months abroad in Europe & Great Britain, certifications in basic yoga instruction, trust course and more, but my yoga practice has brought me schooling from the greater pool of knowledge. Interests include gardening, cooking, traveling and reading. Stop by our porch for produce from Grinnell Heritage Farm or catch me at the Downtown Farmer’s Markets in the summer.
