About Esoteric Mama
Melissa Lindsey, the founder of Esoteric Mama, was born into a life of diversity. Oregon-born and raised she is deeply connected to her Hawaiian ancestry from which she drew inspiration for having a wide range and often eclectic taste in scholarly pursuits and hobbies. She has degrees in Community Development and Liberal Studies with an emphasis on creating equitable and eco-friendly cities, based on her underlying love, service, and dedication to people, life, and growth. She has also carved out a career rooted in ritual and metaphysics involving an energy healing practice providing sessions, readings, and classes to her students derived from ancient lineage and traditions.
Melissa’s passion for Metaphysical study and application has guided her life path overall. She created “Esoteric Mama Metaphysical Store” in hopes to spread her knowledge about ritual and ceremony and to connect others with the necessary supplies needed and how to use them. She is committed to living her life with purpose, intention, eco-friendly consciousness, and most of all, joy. She recognizes joy as the natural state of being, and that it is also easily forgotten. Her intention is to help others remember through her blog “The Alchemy of Joy” which is dedicated to illustrating correlations through inspiration, contemplation, fluidity, and practical application of all things related to joy in everyday life.
