Meet Karen LaCamera

Hi! I'm Karen LaCamera and my passion is to creatively and intuitively design and present information of all kinds … whether it be through Graphic Design, Mandalas, or the Akashic Records. I will tap into the energy of the person, business, location or item and gather the necessary information that you are waiting to hear or remember, or I will present it to you in the form of a creative design. 


I grew up a completely regular ole “muggle”. There was never any real indication that I had any “gifts” that came through my physical senses or “clair” senses. I coasted through life, having regular ole experiences and emotions. Until one day when I was in my 20s, my mom started telling me about her experiences with this energy work called Reiki. At first, I just smiled and nodded politely, but over time it started to sink deeper into my very being and that’s when my first awakening happened. My thirst for knowledge and information brought me down many rabbit holes. I became attuned to Reiki, I learned about the energy centers of our bodies and how they are related to our emotions, and to work with crystals. It never occurred to me that there was a whole version of ME inside of me that I never even knew about. Fast forward to about 2018 when I met Andrea Kukulka and things just skyrocketed from there! I became attuned to Light Connection, got my 2nd Reiki Master attunement (Holy Fire this time), and remembered how to access the Akashic Records through Kristi Johnston’s teachings. I was on fire and soaking up ALL the knowledge. And then……and THEN…. It all came to a screeching halt. Cue the pandemic and lockdown of 2020 … this is when I learned about shadow work and it catapulted me through another HUGE awakening period. I am who I am today because I have been able to go deeper into myself, my soul, and my very being and discover my divine sovereign nature as an expression of God/Source.


All of my work today has become my passion. I’ve never had a passion before so this is a fantastically glorious time for me! I absolutely LOVE to ferret out information for people. I do that through reading your “Book of Life”, also called the Akashic Records. Through these intuitive readings, you get to learn about your soul’s other incarnations and how any of those may affect your emotions, habits, patterns, behaviors, etc in this lifetime. I offer recorded readings that I email to you, along with additional optional phone debriefs, as well as in-person readings at Illumination Center. I also offer a self-paced, online course called “Accessing and Reading the Akashic Records” so that you can remember how to do it yourself!

Speaking of information, I’ve done “Information Design”, more commonly known as Graphic Design for the past 20 years. I run my own business called Align by Design. Anything you need printed or digital … I can create for you. I love to work with clients who have an idea of exactly what they are looking for but need someone to execute the final design for them. I can help you with logos, business cards, simple websites (like my own!), flyers, brochures, letterhead and envelopes, tee shirts, promotional products, banners, order forms, YOU NAME IT!! Please check out my graphic design portfolio:


And as if that wasn’t enough, let’s talk about Mandalas. This is the absolute perfect combination of my creative (graphic design) and intuitive (Akashic Records and beyond) gifts. For the past 15+ years, I have been coloring mandalas as a form of meditation. One day my friend Andrea said to me “Why are you coloring other people’s mandalas? Why don’t you just create your own?” And just like that, she nudged me into a whole new way of being. I now tap into the energy of a person/place/business and channel through information in the form of Sacred Geometry, shapes, and colors to create a beautifully finished piece that you can either meditate with or display. I create more than just personal custom mandalas, I also have some energetic/healing series such as the 7 Chakras, the 7 Chakra Shadows, the 5 Elements/Platonic Solids, etc., and fun mandalas like the seasons and holidays. Please look through all of my Mandalas such as my portfolio, mandalas in action: and my beautiful mandala products:

I also offer one-on-one and group workshops on learning how to create your own mandalas, and all of the information and knowledge that comes along with it.


A quick bit about me personally … I am a married mother of 2 teenagers; a freshman and a senior in high school. I’m a dog mom and an animal lover. I absolutely NEED to be around trees. I love to laugh, read, hang out in my kitchen with family and friends, connect people, and color & create mandalas.

I'm at your service,



I am astounded each time Karen goes into the Akashic records for me! Her energy is like a big, safe, warm hug. She has helped me to recognize areas where I feel stuck and then lovingly healed and integrated the various pieces of myself back together. I am so grateful for the container that Karen holds for me. I was very new to the Akashic records when I found Karen, and she has truly opened me up to new possibilities. If you're at all curious about the Akashic records, definitely schedule a session with Karen!

Karen’s access to the akasha and the quantum field is unique.  She receives information and vivid images which she conveys through descriptive language that resonates.  Karen’s reading for me opened me up to understanding why past lives matter to us, when I hadn’t had much use for the concept before.

Design work: "I had the pleasure of working with Karen LaCamera from Align by Design on my business logo. I started with a very crude drawing of what I wanted and she turned it into magic! Karen is very intuitive, patient and an amazing artist. She will work with you on as many drafts as it takes to make sure everything is perfect. Karen’s uses her intuition to make sure the artwork truly comes from your heart. When I saw the final draft tears came to my eyes as I realized how beautifully the logo represents my business and soul. I highly recommend working with Karen on your logo or any other graphic designs!"

Akashic Records reading: "Karen did an Akashic reading on my son and it was amazing!  He was going through a period of impossible behaviors. We were both triggering each other & I felt like I was having tantrums right back at him.

I spoke with Karen about it and felt like I needed to know more about what was going on with him at another level.  She did an Akashic record reading on him and sent me the recording of what she discovered. I listened to it several times to take it all in. The insights she shared were so helpful.  She helped me to see him in a different enough light that gave me a new understanding of this son that I love soooooo much.  It also helped me to better understand the dynamic between my husband and my son which has also been incredibly helpful!

Karen’s ability to understand and put you at ease while talking through stuff that’s intensely private and personal is just one of her many attributes. Super compassionate and very kind are two more words that I would use to describe her."
