Larina Tiffen-Fuller - Priestess Lily

Meet Priestess Lilly: A Beacon of Light and Healing

Priestess Lilly is a gifted and revered healer, blessed with the ability to channel divine light codes for profound healing and activation. Supported by her guides, the wisdom of Maori culture, and land she will lead you on your inner journey with compassion and care. Through her presence, you will be enveloped in a sacred space where healing and transformation unfold effortlessly. 

“I am here walking the Great Mother to be of service. To activate incredible people to move into their shadow work, and live a life aligned with their soul purpose.”

Serving you.

I am here to activate greater light within your soul. To empower you to live a more aligned life with who you are rather than who others what you to be. Reclaiming all that we have forgotten, and all that we are yet to discover.

How do I do this?

Through my work as a Priestess, in deep devotion of leadership, through my one on one coaching, Sacred Heart Healing, workshops and showing up authentically as myself. Through my Sacred Heart healing and Mediumship work, I offer a place of sacred connection and conversations with loved ones who have passed on. This is where people can start the journey of healing and for people to truly embrace their pathway.
