About Jackie van der Velde

B.A. Mind/Body Medicince with emphasis in Alternative Modalities, Certified Hypnotherapist, Energetic Healer, Thrive Energetics Practitioner, Access Consciousness Practitioner, Yoga Teacher, Personal Trainer. 

I graduated from South Puget Sound Community College with a Liberal Arts degree with an emphasis in Pre-Nursing. During the first quarter of the nursing program, I found myself conflicted about the use of medications in western medicine. Not that there isn’t a place for medication, but the over emphasis on pharmaceuticals really bothered me. I didn’t want to push medications, which mostly mask symptoms, I desired to find the root of illness and help people get well.

Through a turn of events in my own family, I ended up not completing nursing school. My daughter came home for Thanksgiving break stating she was experiencing vertigo and having trouble seeing. Upon immediate investigation, we discovered she had two cancerous lesions in her brain.  Neither of us returned to school that year. Instead, we started a very intense journey of our own  – balancing chemotherapy with alternative modalities of prayer and hands on healing.  After 6 months of therapy she was in remission. That was in April 2011.

One year later, I enrolled into the Mind/Body Medicine Program at Evergreen State College, where I found a more holistic approach towards health and wellness. During my time at Evergreen State College, I studied several modalities which treat the emotional body, mental body, energetic body, as well as the physical body. I feel much more in alignment now as I offer my gifts of healing through Access Bars, hypnotherapy, meditation, prayer, somatic release, energetic cleansing, and yoga therapy.

My business, Sacred Journeys was birthed in 2012 as a container for doing hypnotherapy sessions.  Since then, sessions have evolved into more integrative sessions that explore what is being held and locked into place in one’s molecules and each of the bodies.  I use the tools of Access Consciousness, Hypnotherapy, Reiki Energy, Angel Therapy, Time Line Therapy, Theta Healing, as well as my own intuitive healing capacities, to facilitate healing sessions that are highly effective in releasing limitations and expanding one’s awareness in order to create and embrace new possibilities.  I have witnessed tremendous change in just one session.

As people in letting go of energetic, mental and emotional debris, their bodies start to feel much better as well.  This is where my gifts as a yoga teacher and personal trainer come in.  As clients feel stronger and more energetic, I can take them even further through yoga, personal training and nutritional counseling to transform their physical body. With dedication and consistency, their bodies will soon reflect the internal shifts that are happening.

It is a great honor to create such sacred space and to be part of truly miraculous transformations.

Thank you for stopping by! Blessings!

Jackie van der Velde Success Stories

No More Seizures!

Men dealing with stress

"Meeting Jackie was my light in the darkness. I was falling deeper with no way out. I have stressed induced seizures and I was missing alot of work because of them. I had seen doctors, therapists, and more but nothing had helped. That's when I decided to try hypnotherapy.  After we had our first few sessions, it had happened. My seizures were gone. It was an absolute blessing to finally be rid of those. Jackie helped me cope through it and even continued to check on me to ensure that I was doing better. After a year I started to have them again but she helped me quickly get past them again and to train myself to look for early detection signs. She is absolutely wonderful and I don't know what I would have done without her!" ~ Garrett S.

Compassionate And Genuine Care

Women dealing with stress

"A series of great experiences with a wonderful guide! Jackie has a terrific sense of compassion to help her clients. She has a delightful approach. After being disappointed with other counseling that was scripted and cold. Sessions with her leave me feeling stronger and empowered. If you're looking for a caring approach to support and recovery, Jackie is absolutely awesome." ~ Anastasia

Renewed Self-Confidence

Women seeking spiritual guidance

"Jackie is a beautiful soul. In just one session she was able to guide me in removing my limiting beliefs of my true self. I cannot begin to explain the feeling that has now come over me. I am full of pure energy and am now ready to accept all the abundance in my life. A true gift." ~ Lisa B
