Well known for her colourful and inspiring readings and healings, Omanisa is an Australian naturopath who has been spirit-trained as a psychic healer, artist and counsellor who can see, read and heal the aura and chakras. Om takes bookings via Zoom from interstate and international clients, and runs a clinic in Palmerston, Northern Australia, in partnership with her husband of 30 years.
Om began her career as a healer in 1996. Two years later she began sketching and reading the aura. In 2003, she graduated as a naturopath and joined a multidisciplinary clinic in Darwin, Northern Australia. In 2008, Omanisa and her husband Stephen built a purpose-made clinic under their elevated tropical home in Palmerston, Northern Australia. Now Om runs a mentoring program for healing apprentices and those who wish to master the art of reading the aura and working with Ki energy.
Every year, Omanisa and Stephen go on a Wildflower Spirit Journey through outback Australia, in search of wildflowers from which to craft new flower essences. These essences form the heart and soul of Omanisa’s naturopathic kits, which combine naturopathic-quality liquid herbal tinctures and homeopathics with Omanisa’s own hand-crafted range of gem elixirs, flower essences and aura colour essences.
Om has created a range of oracle card and book sets featuring her own writing, nature photography, and art. She’s also the publisher for her grandmother Anne Urban’s book Wildflowers and Plants of Inland Australia. Anne was the first female residential doctor in central Australia. She fought for the medical rights of our First Nations people and was awarded an OAM for her services to handicapped children.
Omanisa’s love for nature, wildflowers, photography, and naturopathy was inspired by her mother, maternal grandparents, and her great uncle Peter. Peter was an arid zone botanist and ranger who established the plant walks and the herbarium at Uluru-Kata Tjuta. Peter was also instrumental in facilitating the Western Desert art movement in the 1970’s. Om is currently writing a biography about her elders, to share their story!
Many people ask about Omanisa’s name. The name ‘Omanisa’ is an American Indian man’s name, meaning ‘wanderer’ or ‘soul drifter’, found by Om’s aunt Maggie in a book. When Omanisa was born, it was the only name on the short-list of baby names that really suited her. Omanisa was born in Alice Springs in Central Australia, and aside from a few years spent living in a big tent in a rainforest in Tasmania as a toddler, she lived in Alice until the end of her teenage years.
Over the past few decades, Om has mentored over 100 healers, run workshops on a broad range of topics such as meditation, sound therapy, aura sketching, psychic and spiritual development, shamanism, intuitive card reading, Reiki healing and mastery, creative writing for grief therapy, healing, the inner child, the art of manifestation, and more.
