Today we’d like to introduce you to Patille Violeta.
Hi Patille, we’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.
My name is Patille, pronounced “pah-teel” which means snowflake in Armenian. My passion as an energy healing teacher is to awaken the inner healer. Is it destiny, fate, personal, intergenerational trauma that led me to energy healing? Did I choose this path or did this path choose me? What I do know is that I was attuned to the healing arts at a young age. When I was sad, I would put on music and dance. When I needed quiet time, I would go out in nature. When I wanted to explore my imagination, I would draw and paint. The healing arts have always been my refuge. I was an intuitive kid and had a way of reading energy. Biracial and empathic, childhood was a confusing, sometimes magical and often an alien experience.
Storyteller Michael Meade says, “Our greatest gifts and deepest wounds reside in the same area.” We can turn our challenges into blessings. Whatever we go through positions us to offer unique perspectives, solutions, and insights on issues. If I didn’t struggle with body image and identity, who knows if I would mentor and empower young women? Everything we go through is truly a gift.
Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
The first few years of practicing energy healing was filled with excitement and lots and lots of doubts. A few years ago, I met Ama Bombo, one of the thirteen indigenous grandmothers. I came to her home in Kathmandu, Nepal for a series of healing treatments. During one of my visits, I asked, “How did you get here?” She said there are hundreds and thousands of books that can be studied to be a shaman and there is nothing like the direct experience. She received the gift from the spirit of her father. Being in Ama Bombo’s presence had a profound effect on me. When I returned to Los Angeles, I went through another identity crisis. This time it had nothing to do with body image or being of mixed race. I questioned my purpose as a healer. Spirituality being a rising trend, I wanted to come back to my why. Why am I doing this work?
After many months, it became clear to me that I was destined to be on the healing path. Even when I closed the door, it would open again. Messages and insights would come. Healing clients would be referred. Events and collaborations would happen. Opportunities would come. Healing would find me no matter which direction I turned. The work that I do is not easy yet it is fruitful. It requires self-motivation, self-care, and energetic hygiene on a level I’ve never known before. It’s a labor of love with much merit. It’s my belonging and sense of home. When I practice, I remember who I truly am.
As you know, we’re big fans of Violeta Healing. For our readers who might not be as familiar what can you tell them about the brand?
Violeta Healing is a symbolic name that was channeled during the peak of the global pandemic. Violeta is my Filipino mom’s maiden name. In spiritual traditions, the frequency of violet is purifying and transforms negative energy. So my private practice infuses all these qualities. Transformation, generational healing, the beauty of uplifting humanity.
I currently offer private and group Reiki Level I and II trainings and sessions. Reiki is a Japanese stress-reduction technique administered by laying the hands over the body to move stagnant energy. Reiki is gentle in its delivery and powerful in its ability to restore emotional, mental, physical, energetic, and spiritual balance. There are various Reiki Lineages and the ones I’m trained in are traditional Usui and Shakti. Usui is the mind and method, while Shakti is the divine feminine and creation energy. In my experience, the combination of the two contributes to transformation on a cellular level.
I also offer Shamanic Healing. During traumatic and painful moments, one may lose touch with their vitality or Soul. The work of a shamanic healer is to retrieve this vital life force energy. The tools I work with are my voice, channeling, journeying, drumming, and ritual. Because play is an important aspect of healing, I also incorporate the healing arts of movement, dance, art, and meditation to the process.
All my sessions and courses are offered remotely. Energy travels across any distance, time and space, making virtual an effective and accessible way to experience healing. I’m really excited about the direction of my practice, which is moving from “healing others” to teaching self-healing. While I serve as a guide and mentor, each person is responsible for their wellbeing.

Is there any advice you’d like to share with our readers who might just be starting out?
Enjoy the process. Take small steps towards achievable goals. I learned later on in my career that I can wear all the hats but I don’t have to. Take the load off your plate and reach out to people who have the skills you don’t. You don’t have to be good at everything. Be good at what you do. Taking breaks is nourishing. Schedule moments in your day that are dedicated to play, rest, care, and tending to relationships. Be inspired by others in your field. Collaboration over competition. We can all learn from each other. In the midst of these unpredictable times, Joy is revolutionary. Have your joy.
