Hey, I'm Nishta Ratna!
Pāhoa, Hawaii, United States · Member since June 2013

After living most of my life on the mainland, I traveled in Australia and India for 3 ½ years but have finally found my "home"...I love living on the Big Island with warm days, trade winds and soft rain; been here almost five years. I love enabling others to experience and connect to the beauty, power and mystery of this magical island, Hawaii. I’m an upbeat, happy, healthy, busy woman who enjoys sharing this place with my guests. Love to turn folks on to the all the natural wonders like where to swim with dolphins, best ways to see the lava flowing, the natural thermal "hot pond" and all the amazing plants and vegetation, like 30 foot high ancient tree ferns, foot wide anthuriums and all the orchids...did you know many orchids have amazing and beautiful scents? And then there is the abundance of local farmers' markets and organic produce, art, live theater, wonderful restaurants and so much more...

I enjoy sharing life on the island and the downstairs studio of my home with guests from all over the world; right now have folks staying from Holland. Many folks stay who are deciding whether they want to live here, but most come just to take a break away from their day-to-day lives.

My current passion is creating jewelry as wearable art...I enjoy discovering the "right" beads, colors, gems...was a jeweler before my time in the corporate world as a computer consultant. So many lives to live in this very lifetime! All my jewelry is Reiki infused (am a Reiki Master), as well as the nourishing energies of Hawaii and the gemstones themselves. I am inspired by the colors of Hawaii, the rainforest, the sea and sky as well as Pele's powerful offerings of Fire and Lava...with more inspiration coming from all the beautiful flowers of Hawaii…you may want to check out (website hidden)

I enjoy meditation, silence, Chi Kung, walks, dancing, massage or fixing a tasty meal. Am excited about spiritual exploration and expanded consciousness. One of my meditations is growing food organically and creating “shade” flower gardens. Have studied alternative and natural healing modalities and enjoy sharing what I know; am a healer and love to pamper folks with Reiki/Reflexology/Organic Facial sessions.
