Elijah Kala McShane
Ambassador of Aloha | Kahu - Spiritualist | Transformative Speaker
Elijah, also known as Son of O'ahu, is a devoted Ambassador of Aloha from the sacred islands of Hawai'i. His mission of sharing The Way of Aloha has reached millions around the world via his social media reach and his work as a demanded speaker, facilitator, and ceremonialist. Elijah's message focuses around 3 fundamental principles of Hawaiian spirituality: Aloha 'Aina (connection to the land), Aloha Akua (connection to spirit), & Aloha Kanaka (connection to one another).
... & growing
...an astounding story"
As a Native Hawaiian on O'ahu, Elijah grew up in a strong, loving, and passionate family where hard work, excellence, and success were valued. Challenged by a speech impediment from his youth, Elijah struggled to find confidence and certainty in his own abilities until he was exposed to personal and spiritual development as a young adult. Growing up with a Catholic & Christian context of spirituality rarely fulfilled his thirst for truth, love, connection, and universal wisdom. This along with other factors of life propelled Elijah on a spiritual and cultural quest to rediscover his own unique connection to his ancestors, cultural practices, and ways of being through the principle of Aloha. Through consciousness work, healing inter-generational trauma, and creative expression, he developed Awakened Aloha, a multi-faceted organization that works toward "inspiring a world where Aloha is the heartbeat of humanity" where he alongside his wife, Jazmin, shares the message of Aloha as a transformative principle for self-discovery, connection, and contribution to the planet.
"the pathway to happiness & the fulfillment
of your life's purpose is paved in ALOHA.
This energy of ALOHA is the true essence
in every one of us. Therefore, it is the key
to unifying a divided world."
