Today we’d like to introduce you to Akiko Hoshihara.
Akiko, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
About ten years ago, I was going through an emotionally and mentally difficult time in my life. Out of desperation to get out of the misery, I took time off to visit my family in Japan, and there I was guided to meet with a shaman lady. She told me that I’m not doing what’s meant for me in this lifetime and introduced me to Reiki. After I went back to NY, I found a Reiki teacher to study with. And in my first session, I had a spiritual awakening to understand there is a non-physical reality all around us all the time in a different dimension but happening here at the same time. Since then, I completed 4th degree Reiki training and studied with many teachers about every subject on energy, spirituality, psychics, healing, quantum physics, to understand what we are and why we are here for.
In the beginning, I started offering group Reiki sessions at a senior center in Queens, NY. After I moved to LA in 2013, I worked with teenagers for Reiki and Yoga at Job Corps and YWCA, and gradually started taking one-on-one clients for healing sessions. As the years go by, my perception has widened, and I became more psychically connected to images and past life memories. After I studied hypnotherapy and past life regression therapy in 2016, I started working with the subconscious mind to heal traumas and patterns developed in early childhood and past lives. My work has been evolving continuously, and I use all my tools to work with people who are dealing with all kinds of issues like depression, anxiety, PTSD, inner child issues, and loss of purpose in life. I see people’s souls behind their physical surroundings, and they’re always beautiful and waiting to be recognized to be whole, loved, and accepted.
Has it been a smooth road?
It has been smooth in terms of spiritual development, experience with my clients, and my learning curve, but it greatly required patience, persistence, consistent learning, and inner-reflection. I always received the right amount of opportunities and challenges.
We’d love to hear more about your business.
I offer intuitive healing sessions and Reiki training classes for anyone who looks for guidance to heal and connect with their spiritual intelligence for a healthier life. Whether it’s Reiki or hypnotherapy, I guide my clients to channel their divine guidance and the subconscious mind to reconnect with the root cause and heal the fragmented part of them to be whole again. My work is to connect my clients to the Divine, but healing naturally happens in a process of integration and alignment with their very essence which is love.
For a private healing session, I offer Reiki healing, hypnotherapy, past-life regression, and multi-dimensional hypnosis session. We’ll discuss what’s best for you in a consultation. Many of my clients come back for regular energy boost/maintenance. If you’re interested in learning Reiki, I offer Reiki training classes so you’ll learn how to heal yourself and others.
Part of my recent work is to create a portrait of your soul based on the images that I channel in an online Reiki session. During a session, I clairvoyantly see images, stories, and colors that are emanating from each one of our souls after excess energy is cleansed, and I create digital artwork of your core being. Everyone has different colors, texture, and stories. They are all special and beautiful. I post them on my Instagram.
I’m so grateful for meeting and working with so many beautiful souls incarnated at this time on earth, and co-create experience and learning to bring humanity to the new level.
Is our city a good place to do what you do?
Absolutely. LA is very open to new ideas and businesses. There is a creative energy here and we’re almost forced to be more creative at this transformative time.

Megan Gallagher: Hi! My name is Megan Gallagher! I’m a 24 year old 2x TED speaker, #1 best selling author, afterbuzz tv host, mental health advocate & podcast host! I am very passionate about helping teenagers and changing the school system to have mandatory classes about self love, mental health and following your dreams! Growing up, I started struggling with anxiety as young as three. As a got older, I became more aware of my body and by 14, I knew that something was wrong and I needed help. It was really scary to be sitting in class(in High School) and all the sudden feel hot, sweaty, a fast heart rate and like I was going to pass out. These “episodes” happened every day, in all seven of my classes. After a few months of struggling, I decided to sit my parents down and vent to them. It was so scary and surreal, yet I felt so understood and safe. I then started therapy for three years and went on a journey to discover who Megan was. Now, having overcome it all and being in such a different place in my life- I have dedicated my life to being that person I craved as a teen. I speak at middle schools and high schools across the country in hopes of spreading positivity and inspiring teens to reach for the stars!
