Before I jump in to the Meet the Maker Interview with Narayan, I want to tell the story of how I met this amazing Maker. About 4 years ago, I was going through a very though time in my life. I had a heavy heart and a lot of sadness as I navigated my way through a divorce and I desperately needed some spiritual intervention to help me through it. To get away, I took a drive to beautiful Ojai (an hour south of where I live). As I walked the Farmer's Market on a Sunday morning, a woman came out of nowhere with the biggest smile on her face, and told me to close my eyes. She put her finger on my forehead and I immediately felt a warmth from her hand all the way down my spine. We stood like that for about 5 minutes and when I opened my eyes, the colors around me radiated and I felt an inner happiness that I had not experienced for quite a while. She looked at me and said "it is okay to be happy". In that moment, she changed my life by allowing me to let go of the sadness and to open up to all things good. Needless to say, I embraced this woman and I wanted to know everything about her.
Her name is Narayan and she is a healer, in many ways. Narayan offers in-person healing sessions in Faceology, Holistic Integrative Healing, and Sacred Heart Healing, and she is a Maker of magical apothecary products that are absolutely incredible! She hand-creates everything with love and care and with a deep knowledge and understanding of the natural elements she adds to each product. Narayan's items range from anti-aging serums to "love yourself" potions.
