Temple of Venus




Welcome to the online home of Elyssa Jakim: spiritual teacher, wellness writer, intuitive reader, shamanic healer, reiki master. Elyssa is the co-creator of the Numinous's Temple of Venus (a physical space and monthly column opening readers and visitors to love/abundance/beauty) and of Fairy School NYC (an after-school program devoted to fairy lore and crafts). 

Through her healing sessions and readings, Elyssa connects you to your inner knowing, your most incandescent Self: to joy, peace, and love. She also helps interested parties uncover magical realms of fairies, unicorns, mermaids, dragons, goddesses, and more!

A note from Elyssa: 

From Reiki classes to potion workshops to one-on-one fairy sessions, I act as an intermediary between the magical and you--helping you to remember it and discover it more deeply in your life. The goal of this work is to bring you deep joy, refreshment, nurturing, healing, and clarity--to enhance your gut feeling that you are always surrounded by love. 

On this website, you will find information about my projects, events, sessions, and writings. Any offerings can be tailored to your needs and the needs of a group. WATCH THIS SPACE for new classes and experiences.

 I am available for free phone consultations to discern which session is best for you, to create a custom experience, and to give you a sense of what working with me will feel like. 

Have a beautiful day!

With love,

Temple of  Venus

In the summer of 2015, online magazine the Numinous and I teamed up to create an interactive art installation and event space called the Temple of Venus. As an altar to the goddess Venus, the installation served as a healing space: the events at the Temple were a way to address our questions and questings regarding love, sexuality, beauty, money and everything else Venus touches. Here's an interview I did with Broadly about sexual healing and the Temple. 

Six months after creating the temple, Venus did not stop working with and guiding me. So I created a monthly column on the Numinous entitled The Temple of Venus, as an extension of the physical project.  In the column, I share Venetian wisdom each month to help get our juicy, abundant, sexual, prosperous selves truly flowing. 




Intuitive Reading

$110 skype

In an intuitive reading, I call in your divine team ( which may include guides, angels, ancestors, ascended masters, elementals) to help shed clarity on the things that are happening in your life, to help you make decisions for the future, and to feel empowered on your path. A powerful opening, this reading is an energy healing in and of itself. I often offer suggestions for further resources, daily practices and energy healing meditations. You can read my philosophy of receiving readings on The Numinous. And see this writeup by Ruby Warrington about an Akashic Records Reading that she had with me.

This shamanic journey brings you to the places you need to discover for healing and upliftment. Explore other realms in bright and beautiful colors that work healing energy through your body. Meet guides, angels, goddesses, touch other realms, explore your past lives, feel what it is to be sand or stone or water.  This session opens and balances chakras and helps you tap in to your highest self and mission in life. It tends to feel very sweet, loving, nurturing, and joyful, even as it goes into deep places of healing.  In person sessions incorporate hands on energy healing with the language of the journey, distance sessions include distance reiki.

Reiki is a hands-on energy healing technique, developed in Japan by Dr. Mikao Usui. Also known as chi, Reiki is the energy of life, the animating principle. The Reiki practitioner acts as a channel for this energy, allowing the person who receives it to feel deep levels of calm, healing, and nourishment. Used for everything from headaches to heartaches, Reiki feels like a deep meditation that balances you spiritually, physically, and emotionally. I use light massage along with the Reiki because it feels wonderful. I also teach Reiki I and II upon request. Refer back to this website for upcoming classes.  



Fairy Session

$110 skype

Do you believe in fairies? You will now...
We will begin with a talk about faerie-folk, to uncover how they are operating in your life at present. I will provide an intuitive reading, acting as a channel for fairies who would like to speak to you, give you messages, and teach you how to connect with them. After we feel sufficiently filled up with new fairy knowledge, we will astrally travel (meditatively journey) into the fairy realm where you can receive healing and an energetic boost from the fairies themselves! When we open this portal, you can go back and connect with your fairies any time. 




Unicorn Reading


This is a channeled unicorn message in written form at a community-oriented cost. Your unicorn advisor is here to answer your questions about life, love, unicorns, and just about anything you can imagine. You will receive a beautiful writing answering your questions and connecting you more closely to these wondrous beings.
