My Story

Hello! I'm so happy you found your way here. My name is Shawna. I am the creatress behind Mama Fish Botanicals where I pour my heart into Earth infused offerings and hold space for your healing using Usui Reiki, Vibrational Sound therapy and Energy Medicine. I reside with my amazing husband, two beautiful kids and three cats on the traditional, unceded Ancestral lands of the dxʷdəwʔabš (Duwamish) people and stand in Solidarity with them as the First Nation that tended to this land.   All of my offerings are intentionally co-created with the Earth from my heart and packaged with the utmost care using a variety of homegrown, organic, wild-crafted, sustainable and ethically sourced ingredients infused with Lunar, Solar, Crystal & Reiki Energy.  I also offer Intuitively guided in person 1 on 1 healing sessions, distance treatments, group sessions along with curated gatherings & Sacred ceremonies.

A deeper look into my journey and how I arrived here:

After years of making products for myself and gifting them to family and friends, Mama Fish Botanicals was officially born in 2015. "Mama" came from my gift of being a Mother and "Fish" for my last name, Fisher. I'm a homeschooling Mama of two beautiful Souls, a wife, empath, ritualist, clairsentient and am incredibly passionate about my family, living in harmony with the earth, animism and encouraging daily self-care. I'm an avid organic gardener, grow a lot of the herbs and flowers I use in my botanical products, have a deep and abiding connection to Mother Earth, Grandmother Moon, the Elements and work in harmony with the seasons and lunar phases.

My path to holistic wellness began in 2007, while training to be an Esthetician. The world of wellness, healing, and energy work began to come into focus as I learned the vital importance of taking care of the body from the inside out and holistic medicine.  During this time, I heard a calling and started to understand there is more to my purpose. I began to notice a shift in my life leading to my powerful healing journey from a life filled with processed foods and the “work hard, play harder” lifestyle. I became deeply passionate about eating whole, organic foods and using skincare products without chemicals. This life nurturing shift brought me into a deeper connection with Mama Gaia, which ultimately inspired me to begin studying energy medicine, herbalism and led me to begin making organic skincare products for myself and as gifts where I could concoct the best products using the purest and most nourishing ingredients.  

 

In 2010 and 2013, my dedication for living a healthy and connected lifestyle grew stronger with each birth of my two children and I became committed to making the world a better place, protecting the earth for future generations while surrounding them with a healthy home and life.  Through my children's growth, my truth started to transpire and I began my powerful spiritual healing journey.

 

In 2015 I began studying herbalism with Rosemary Gladstar, Master Herbalist through "The Science and Art of Herbalism" followed by an apprenticeship with Susanne Tabert, Herbalist and Wildcrafter at "Cedar Mountain Herb School".   I was also guided to share my passion of sound, healing and the power of meditation alongside my Dad as we began the “Great Spirit Healing Drum Circle” a monthly gathering of healing through community, meditation and music. Being apart of this community allowed me to deepen into my spiritual journey even more and inspired me in more ways than I ever could have imagined.  At our circle, I had the honor of connecting with my greatest teacher, mentor, “Mama” Melanie Jusula. She took me under her wing, shared her wealth of knowledge with me (and continues to), attuned me to Reiki energy, certifying me to a Usui Shiki Ryoho Reiki Master Teacher. This life changing attunement fed my deep desire to expand my knowledge of energy medicine and led me to study the Art of Sound healing, Vibrational Energy Medicine, Astrology and Shamanism with a variety of Master Teachers.

With a Pisces Sun sign, Virgo Moon & Gemini Rising I have an insatiable desire for learning, expansion, community healing and creativity. I'm a life long seeker and student always being guided to further my education, sharing that with the world around me while learning from the wisdom of our beloved Mother Earth, Plant Spirits and the Cosmos ​I look forward to connecting with you and sharing my heart and soul with you. 

With Love and deep gratitude, Mama Fish / Shawna

THE FIVE REIKI PRINCIPLES  

 

- Just for today, I will not be angry.

Anger creates serious blockages in one's energy. It is the most complex inner enemy.

Letting go of anger brings peace into the mind.

 

- Just for today, I will not worry.

While anger deals with past and present events, worry applies to the future.  Letting go of worry, brings healing into the Body.

 

- Just for today, I will be grateful. 

Be grateful from your heart. Simple things as extending gratitude, forgiveness, a smile, kind words can improve your life and the life of others bringing joy into the spirit.  

 

- Just for today, I will do my work honestly.

Support yourself, family, friends and thy neighbor respectfully without harming others and live a life of honor. Working honestly brings abundance into the Soul.

 

- Just for today, I will be kind to every living thing.

Honor your parents,your teachers, your children, the earth and all of creation.

Being kind brings love into the heart, opening the door to healing
