Spiritual Wisdom for A Changing World

Elke Macartney

Guidance, We All Need It Once In Awhile.

I offer services and tools for people living a spiritually empowered lifestyle. I have over 40 years experience as a spiritual practitioner and studied diverse wisdom traditions, including Shamanic, spiritual, and energy healing traditions. I present perspectives that will help you when you're feeling stuck or confused, or need confirmation that you are indeed on the right path for you.

As an aura seer, I perceive the ever-evolving energy field of my clients, and I individualize my work to fit your energy, as well as your needs and intentions.

I always feel like I'm in such good hands with Elke. She has really helped me through some of my toughest of times by removing some sticky icky stuff from my energy field and providing wise guidance and energy hygiene tools I can use in my daily life. Each time I've had a shamanic healing session with Elke, I leave feeling so much lighter and brighter--and deeply cared for and supported. I highly recommend her!

Spiritual Energy Healing

No matter what you are going through--illness, bad back, stress, dark night of the soul--your energy body (aura) is affected.

Energy adjustment sessions are a time for you to release any energies that do not serve you. My training as a Reiki practitioner, Therapeutic Touch practitioner, and energy healer stems from 35+ years of training with powerful healers and shamans from around the world. Your aura lets me know what needs to go and what needs to flow!

Energy adjustment sessions are one hour, fully clothed, on a massage table: LaConner, WA Office: $80/hour. Sessions are scheduled by appointment:

NOTE: Energy adjustment sessions are meant to contribute to your overall well-being; they are not meant to replace medical treatment or diagnosis.


 I suffered from nightmares and anxiety from past traumas. Elke gently and effectively helped me release what I've suffered for years. Thank you for this gift, Elke. B. Huddleston, humanitarian, Washington, DC
I am not sure how it happens, but when my back is out, or I have a severe headache, I call on Elke. Within minutes, all pain is gone!
T.S., musician, Seattle

My family and I were scheduled for a vacation trip we all looked forward to when I developed severe pain in my abdomen: probably kidney or gallstones, both have plagued me all my adult life. Elke quietly, gently worked her magic...I have not had any pain since.

Clear Your Space

Clear and release stuck, unwanted energy from your home, office or land. Then bless the space with a positive, energizing intention and vibration. Fees: $100/hour Skagit/Island county; $125hour Whatcom/Snohomish and SanJuan counties, + ferry fees; $150-$200/hour elsewhere depending on travel distance, excluding travel expenses. To schedule: 


By removing unwanted and unintended energy from your space, you create mental and emotional balance. A mental state of well-being, lightness, and clarity follow. Thus allowing a home or business to feel much more peaceful and calm.
Once stale negative vibration energy is cleared and replaced with high-frequency energy, you can feel the invigorating energy in your home or office filled with positive life-affirming energy. Home clearing and blessing bring happiness and contentment. The result is clarity of vision and peace of mind. The clearing reestablishes a feeling of protection and safety to your surroundings.
Highly recommend Elke Siller Macartney, shaman momma as I call her. $ well worth every penny. Joan Barlow, Owner, Native Springs Spa, Anacortes, WA

Aura Portrait Testimonials:

Elke Macartney

I had my aura portrait done and  gifted one for my daughter's 20th birthday. Both are beautiful and the whole experience was amazing. Elke has insight like no other. She sees into your soul and shows you the beauty of it. In my personal aura, she was able to confirm a path for my life that changed my life and gave me encouragement to go forward where I have never gone before! For my daughter, she helped her understand herself more clearly which instilled the confidence she needed. 

Lydia Oakes, Anacortes, WA

2003 is when I first had an aura portrait,  and it has never left me, giving me strength, when I thought I had none. I believe in Elke so much that I will gladly pay to have others experience her being, and experience your gifts to humanity.

“My training is in Physics, which I taught for 36 years. It was absolutely clear to me that my session with Elke was not anything like a “cold reading”--that is she did not probe me with questions for information that she could then elaborate. No, she could “see” clearly in colors that were not visible to me. She used these for personal information about me that was specific and beyond anything I had told her. She made her vision visible to me as it took shape over two hours in the form of a large colored drawing and in audio which was recorded for me to take home. Her recording of our session is a rich treasure of personal insights for me to explore as I revisit it from  time to time.

I am not certain if what she sees is a product of something like quantum entanglement as Dean Radin describes or is electromagnetic in expression. However, anyone not blocked by a paradigm blindness which prevents such possibilities, would find the experience amazing and useful.
You do not need a double blind study to convince yourself that gravity is probably real but it is also highly mysterious. Gravity depends on matter. We understand many things, yet about only 5% of all matter. The remaining 95% consisting of black matter, black energy etc. etc. but it binds together the Universe as we know it. So too Elke taps into something equally real that binds the knowns and unknowns of our lives and spirits together.
