a little about me

I’m Alison Holly Stephen aka the Aliholly.

What else can I tell you about me? I’m based out of Vancouver, BC., Canada. I really dig crystals. And gongs. I take things to the gutter. A lot. And I refer to myself as a perma-pilgrim because I’m constantly seeking sacred sites and knowledge.

This website started as a wee blog called Wonder Craver and has evolved over the years with the projects I have worked on including my podcast called The Awakenizer and various Reiki offerings.

I sometimes get self-conscious because my work is diverse but then I remind myself to trust that it all serves a purpose whether I am conscious of it or not, that it all is medicine in one way or another. And I’m grateful that I allow myself to follow what I feel is the call of my soul.

what I believe


there’s more to our world + us

There’s so much more to the world than we realize and our reality is way weirder and more beautiful than we could ever imagine. So are we!



If we don’t know the true nature of who we are and the world around us then how can we optimize our well-being and live our highest potential?


a shift of the ages

We are living in an important time where an old world is dying as a new world is birthing. Where we are being given a chance to step into our potential.

a little about my work


I don’t know why but I receive stories. They just come to me. From where I don’t know but I just get the ideas and I’m trusting them more as I get older.

I learned the craft of storytelling during film school and from working in the film industry for over 20+ years. Because of this the stories I “receive” are usually scripts.

My first self-published book is called Spark and it’s about a girl named Spark who sparks – literal burst of light emanate from her unexpectedly. It’s what I call a mash up of a screenplay and a traditional book format and it’s my way of telling a story about the inner spark and light inside us all – an ancient and sacred truth. There are copies of the first edition available in my shop.


For the majority of my life I didn’t understand that I have an energetic field that encompasses my body. Better yet, that this energy isn’t just around me it is me. And because I didn’t now about it I didn’t take care of it. I know I’m not alone in not knowing this.

Sound, frequency, and vibration are wonderful ways to tend to your energy and are a powerful addition to your self-care rituals and to your life!

I currently offer Frequency Sound Baths, The Frequency Edit Workshop, and I also am available for private bookings and events. You can find out more about them and check my current availability and events in my shop.
