They figure out how to harness and drive their own cosmic maps, understand and master life patterns, and work with their problem areas productively. Anne’s focus is always on how to create your best life using the planets and their energies as helpful tools described by your chart.

“I am here for the balance of things.”
A contemporary soul alchemist, teacher, healer and mediator who shares her gifts of vibrational and spiritual transformation to assist clients as they courageously and compassionately explore and embrace the majestic adventure of their lives.
JeMaja answered the call to the metaphysical, spiritual and magical realms at a very early age, nurtured by a family who viewed all life as sacred. Growing up, she observed and learned how to live in harmony with the surrounding and supportive elemental energies of the animal, plant and mineral kingdoms.
Her parents recognized what she had from a very early age: the ability to help others with her emerging psychic and intuitive skills, blended with her sense of humor and loving playfulness. As she matured, she began actively developing and sharing her gifts from spirit with others who sought new ways of looking at their lives and living with a sense of purpose.
Her profound devotion to the Healing Arts, which she has studied for the past 22 years, is reflected by her sustained passion and commitment in guiding others as they excavate and embrace the essence of all that is truly important and necessary in their lives.
In her direct, no-nonsense but compassionate approach, she utilizes a variety of healing modalities, alchemical, energetic and shamanic techniques to assist her clients as they reconnect to their wisdom and determine what is needed to restore balance and strengthen their energetic vitality.
“My work is Alchemy for the Soul — sharing simple and effective ways to transform. Because what we say, how we think and what we do translates into who we become. It reflects who we are in the world.” –JeMaja
After years of study, self application, combined with her extensive experience as a corporate executive, and working with clients in private practice, she came to realize two things: she did not want to study physical chemistry and build a laboratory but rather to create — based upon hermetic principles (‘as above, so below ” & “as within, so without”) — a soul laboratory to pursue metaphysical alchemy - the transforming of heavy “leaden” consciousness into a higher frequency and functioning “golden” consciousness.
Her role as an alchemist, is to help clients identify current states of inner consciousness, any toxic thought patterns that may be stumbling blocks, how to transmute negative energies and recognizing and shielding themselves from undesirable influences that can deplete their creative force.
While this work is not difficult, it does require a willingness and willpower to follow the formula: Awareness + Intention + Commitment = Outcome
Working as a team, she helps her clients attune to the frequency of their own inner peace, finding depth and richness in life and in their interactions with others.
This ability to shine on those around us is something that can be achieved. We must learn to transform our energy. This is how we can bring the magic back into our lives and our environment.
