Our Team

Liliana Barzola Read is the founder of Lotus Lantern Healing Arts and an Intuitive in Portland, Oregon.

Rev. Liliana Barzola Read has conducted over 20,000 in-person and phone counseling sessions, and taught over 600 students, since 2002.  Her practice, Lotus Lantern Healing Arts, has an international clientele including individuals in Australia, Italy, Germany, Japan, Canada, Venezuela, Africa, the UK, and nearly every US state. An intuitive since childhood, Liliana possesses the ability to see a client’s aura and chakra systems.  Using this gift, she enables individuals, couples, and organizations to find clarity and direction.

“Oftentimes,’psychic sensitives’ are the most in need of healing and support. I like to think of myself as the healer’s healer.” –Liliana

I grew up here in the States with my Argentinean mother who was open-minded and warm. My late mother, Elena Gabriel, was a healer who recognized the gifts in me and encouraged me to seek out training to understand my intuition. I was chronically ill most of my life, and it all changed when I began receiving acupuncture and energetic counseling. Through this combination I have been able to heal my physical and emotional ailments.

I met Marissa Mayer L.Ac. in 2000 and her wisdom and treatments changed my life. I became healthier, stronger and more energetically aware. I was then led to my next teacher, Rev. Sandra Brooks, a healer and L.Ac. who trained me to refine my gifts.

My personal journey has been a difficult one. I am sure many of you can relate. In my personal life I have overcome chronic illness, divorce, and the deaths of my beloved sister, Michelle, and mother, Elena. These things have leveled me, humbled me, tortured me and helped me grow. I am consciously creating balance. With each breath my intention is one of wholeness. I am currently feeling blessed to have an amazing group of regular students and clients that keep me on my toes.

Lotus Lantern Healing Arts has a team of Healers Available for sessions:

Due to high demand, sessions with Liliana tend to be booked out 2-4 weeks in advance. Liliana understands that issues may often be time sensitive. As a courtesy to you, Lotus Lantern Healing Arts now offers more availability via phone sessions with energetic healers who have been trained and mentored by Liliana.

“The following Intuitive Consultants are students of mine; people I have personally trained, know and trust. The most important part of selecting an intuitive to work with is knowing they have integrity and positive intentions. My crew does! They have the “Enlighten up with Lotus Lantern” ™ stamp of approval. This group can laugh and keep things positive and light. It’s up to you to find the reader who resonates with you.” -Liliana

Available exclusively by phone through Lotus Lantern Healing Arts.
Phone sessions are just as effective as in-person sessions.

Presenting Rev. Josie Hopla

Have you ever felt weighed down? For days, months, or even years? Your light and life force are irresistible; of course dense energy can get attracted to you. Once I’ve help you clear the heavy energy, you will be much more powerful and at peace once.

Josie Hopla is Lotus Lantern Healing Arts’ premiere specialist in “clearings”. This means she rocks when it comes to clearing dark and parasitic energies from people. She’s an intuitive and a visual artist who began her studies with Liliana in 2006.

Some of her earliest memories are of the fears that surround the subject of dark entities, but she has become empowered and has found a way to overcome the shadow. She loves using powerful tools to quickly release blockages for clients. This can be a scary subject, but Josie’s gift is to use her light, love, creativity and laughter to overcome the vibrations of the shadow. She diagnoses and clears “dark energy” that interferes with our personal growth.

“Parasitic vibrations are not in control of you. Let me help you safely clear negative interference so you can go back to living in your truth. Let love and laughter become more and more a part of your life!”  -Josie Hopla
Not only can Josie clear the shadows, she can also help you gain understanding of dark forces so that the things you once viewed as dark and scary become nothing more than an indication that you are working toward your own truth.  All you need is a cape and a sidekick. She’s excited to be your sidekick. You provide your own cape.
