Tammy Lyn Appenzellar
Hello, I’m Tammy and I’m an Actress, Author, Shamanic Practitioner, Reiki Master, Teacher, and Jeweler.
Originally from the East Coast, my parents moved me to a remote Montana ranch in the Blackfoot Valley when I was seven. As a child, cut off from radio, television, newspapers, and most social activities in the remote Montana Rockies, reading books was my number one source of entertainment. I love books. I love words. I wrote my first novel at the age of nine, and I have been writing ever since.
Another source of entertainment as a child was acting, dancing, and singing at the Missoula Children’s Theater. This passion continued throughout high school and university and, as a young adult, I had many roles in various theatrical productions, did a lot of voice work, and worked on several independent films as well as a few big budget films.
As a young girl, when I wasn’t reading or acting, I was exploring Rocky Mountain terrain with my horse and my dog. We roamed the wilderness in total freedom, and I learned many basic survival skills, how to deeply meditate and connect with spirit, and how to feel the life force energy that runs through all things. I learned how to communicate with my spirit guides as well as with the spirits of the animals, trees, plants, and rocks, and how to read the signs that were shown me. I learned to heal.
As an adult, I added Reiki to my Shamanic skills and have become a Reiki Master. I have studied other forms of energy healing and have achieved master levels in them, and I simply find that Reiki is best suited to me. Reiki works directly with the life force that flows through all things, and I am amazed and delighted at how powerfully Reiki works with Shamanism.
I have traveled much in the world, sometimes living in different places, sometimes simply visiting. I am grateful for all that I have lived, and for all the people whose paths I have crossed. It is always a delight to meet new people and to live new experiences.
Making gemstone jewelry malas was a natural and complementary choice to round out all the things I do. The stones are incredibly healing, the jewelry is beautiful, and it has a positive impact the wearer and on the World.
Thanks for taking the time to read!
Have a look around, and let me know if you have any questions.
Love, Light, and Abundance,
