LŌKAHI is the essence of unity, peacemaking, harmony, connection, and embracing diversity. Lōkahi is the platform upon which to communicate and illuminate healing and more importantly, to reunite that which has been broken back into unity, and awareness—in short, to renew a way of life. ~Maka'ala Yates

Lōkahi AO Creator & Practioner
Usui Reiki Healing Master
Adv Akashic Records Practitioner
Nature Immersion Therapy
Meditation & Breathwork Guide
My offerings include 1-1 individual services & group sessions alike for Reiki Healing, Breathwork Therapy, Akashic Records, Shamanic Journerywork, Nature Immersion Therapies, and more. Integrative Guidance /Coaching is also available for those seeking regular assistance in their process as well.
I work with these and other modalities to access soul level guidance and etheric healing. I am amazed at the transformation in energy and perspective these channels can provide & love the freedom they allow me as a practitioner to work in my own unique way. It is in this same spirit that I aim to work with you as a client, to support and empower you on your own unique journey & growth.
A seeker and explorer by nature, I infuse elements from many traditions & teachings into my work, but mostly work intuitively. There are many paths to illumination, and our journeys should be as beautifully diverse as we are. It is my goal to assist at any level of healing in your process, and to help shift limiting mindsets. To offer guidance and encouragement toward realization of your own truth and potential. I believe that we are all meant to reclaim our personal power and innate wisdom. It just takes willingness to do the work, an open mind, and support from each other and Spirit... As well as a sense of humor.
We are intuitive connected beings. For so many reasons we tune out or “turn off” these abilities. I feel that the first step to understanding our own true nature, is to understand that we ARE nature. We are never separate from it no matter the illusions we have created around this. As we shift and grow, we will see this reflected in our environment and our society. I hold our collective healing and that of our Earth as my constant inspiration. Our well-being and Hers are symbiotic.
In nurturing the Self and our connection to All, we can find the strength and support necessary to co-create a healthier existence. It is this hope which inspired Lōkahi Ao which I hope becomes a valuable resource to many.
I look forward to connecting with you! Please check out my services, and feel free reach out with any questions.
ALOHA NUI LOA,
A bit more about my own journey..
I have always felt most content in Nature. I grew up in the countryside of Virginia where the outdoors was both my playground and my church. I was fortunate in these formative years to establish a deep relationship with the Earth and her creatures which continues to profoundly influence my life.
Love of adventure and the ocean took me to Hawai’i in 2003 with only a suitcase and my camera & I have been home ever since. All I wished for was to live out my dream of a carefree island life, creating amazing art, and travelling the world.
And it seemed I was.. so it was a great shock to wake up years later, creatively blocked, frustrated with society and myself, and utterly confused about my purpose. I knew I was not honoring my potential, yet felt completely powerless to do anything about it. How could I express my creativity and live my truth when I did not know who I was, why I was, or if I was worthy of my dreams?
It was then I realized I could not hope to make or see change in my world if I did not create a change in me. This began a journey to understand myself more deeply, to heal the aspects holding me back, and to rediscover that childhood trust and inner knowing. I began expanding my practice of Meditation & Yoga, exploring many esoteric traditions, and healing modalities.
New experience and travel have always been my favorite teachers. I have been blessed to explore many lands, cultures, & traditions. In 2015 my adventure took me to the Peruvian Amazon to explore Shipibo Tradition & Plant Medicines. The experience and education was so powerful that I was back to Peru again 8 months later.. This time to trek to the sacred sites of the Andes with a Q’ero Healer before returning to the Amazon to work again with Plant Teachers. These profound journeys were a real catalyst to re-awaken and embrace my own intuitive gifts. This period also prompted an even deeper dive into ancient wisdoms and holistic healing methods.
The Universe then carried me to California where I began to intensively work with Reiki Healing, The Akashic Records, Shamanic Practices, Breathwork and more for a few years. These and others have been such valuable tools toward rediscovery of my own innate wisdom, self-acceptance, creativity, and empowerment.
It has taken continuous effort to clear “the noise” that distorted my intuition and sense of self over the years, and to my revitalize my relationship with Spirit... I continue to work at this every day! It has been a beautiful, brutal, magical wild ride. The journey is never ending, but so are the rewards. I have learned so much, most importantly that I am worthy of patience, guidance, and love.
As we all are.
As my journey progressed I was called to share, assist & support others as well. Like so many, awakening to my gifts as a healer and teacher .. so that we may collectively heal ourselves and our Planet.
Since 2019 I have returned to Oahu, Hawai'i, and am so grateful to be back home re-connecting with this incredible land and its Spirit. Exciting to keep sharing, building community, & expanding. Happy to be back Home in every sense of the word.
We are Nature. We are not separate from it, no matter the illusion we have created around this. Exploration of own unique nature is greatly assisted when we remember and honor this truth. Our true essence is reflected back to us though all divine aspects of creation. We are reminded that we are never alone, we are All unique & essential aspects of the whole.
Much of the anxiety, depression, & illness of modern society stems from lack of Human and Earth connection. Fear & separation are wounds that mankind must heal .. and which have the innate capacity to heal. Lōkahi OA is an invitation to restore, rebalance, & rejuvenate through conscious connection. ~Carrie Alford
