My Story

Everyone has been made for some particular work, and the desire for that work has been put in every heart.      -Rumi

My Purpose

Hi :) My name is Melissa Lisette, and I am an Intuitive Spiritual Herbalist, Flower and Gem Essence practitioner and Akashic Record Reader with 18 years of experience. I am a culmination of all of my ancestors, guides, teachers, life initiations and study. My practice is informed by the respect and reverence of these teachers and the journey through my ancestral lineages. The expansion of emotional capacity that leads to empowerment rooted in TRUTH, letting go of cycles of violence and trauma, and decolonizing plant medicine is the purpose behind my work. 

Education 

I began my formal studies of Reiki Level 1 through Mastery with James Weeden, and was certified in Karuna Reiki by Geordie Numata of Deer Spirit Reiki. I was blessed to begin my exploration of herbalism in the Ecuadorian Amazon within the Quechua community, completed further study with Tammi Sweet and Kris Miller of Heartstone Herbals, Jacoby Ballard at Third Root Clinic, and completed my apprenticeship in Spiritual Herbalism with Karen Rose of Sacred Vibes Apothecary, where for 5 years I managed, served, gave consultations and held sacred space for thousands of folks in the community. During this time I became a certified Flower and Gem Essence Practitioner with Joanne Ameya Cohen and completed the core Craniosacral trainings with the Upledger Institute. I have received the Divine Womb training in the lineage of Sri Shirdi Sai Baba and Sri Kaleshwar under Jacqueline Rolandelli of Our Feminine Legacy and recently completed The Five Elements Process. I obtained my Masters in International Affairs and Sustainability at The New School in nyc, a BA in Social Welfare in co, and was also a yoga teacher many moons ago. I am a Certified trauma informed Akashic Record Consultant in the Soul Journeys Method currently studying Akashic Record Mastery and the Teacher Certification Program with Jennifer Longmore of Soul Journeys. 


     Bloodlines        

I am descended from the Taino peoples of Borikén, and the Spanish colonizers who brutalized them and stole their land, Romani Gypsies from Bohemia who fled genocide during the second world war, Appalachia Hill folk who made their home on Shawandasse Tula (Shawanwaki/Shawnee) Tsalaguwetiyi (Cherokee, East) hunting grounds, Portuguese merchants who traded in humans, as well as the peoples from (NKA) Cameroon, Congo and the Western Bantu who were stolen and enslaved by them, Nordic nobility, the Scot-Irish, Druid alchemists, Rhineland sailors, a far-away Star, the Fae and probably a Tree.
