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, writing my first middle grade fiction book called Spark, and various Reiki offerings.

I sometimes get self-conscious because my work has been so 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 my dreams or rather what I feel is the call of my soul. It’s not always easy. Far from it! But I guess I wouldn’t have things any other way.

what I believe

There’s so much more to the world than we realize.

There’s so much more to who we are than we realize!!!

a little about WHAT I DO

I see myself as working with the frequencies to support your well-being and inspire you to live your most beautiful and sacred life.

My frequencies of choice include words, stories, sounds, crystals, and oils.


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 and Micro-Retreats and I also am available for private bookings and events. To find find my bath and retreat offerings visit my shop and to find out more about booking me privately please message me telling me a bit about what it is you are looking for.


I’ve always seen myself as a writer, first and foremost.

My first book was called Spark about a girl named Spark who sparks – literal burst of light emanate from her unexpectedly. It’s middle grade fiction and 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. It also deals with the theme of self-acceptance – something that is very hear and dear to my heart and I feel I am here to master in this life.

Spark is not available for purchase at this time but will be re-released soon.

And I’m so proud to have just completed my second writing project: Manifest A New Frequency – The Journal. It’s a guided manifestation journal empowering you to transform your life with frequency work and is available now on Amazon!
