About

Ikaika Torres grew up on the island of Oahu, Hawaii. Ikaika’s friends call them Kaika, Kaikz, or Kai.

After graduating from Waipahu High School in 1999, Torres served in the active duty Air Force and was discharged honorably. In 2006 they moved to Las Vegas, NV and worked in the construction industry before earning an associates degree in Creative Writing from College of Southern Nevada.

They published a memoir in 2007 and a novel in 2012. Both titles are currently out of print.

In 2008, Torres went to Washington DC to protest the Defense of Marriage Act and Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell. Torres took part in HRC’s Faith & Religion steering commitee. They advised the committee on how to interact with Conservative Christian audiences, for effective communication and building bridges. They organized meetings between Conservative and Progressive Christian pastors to discuss controversial topics like openly affirming sexual orientation. They also helped to create a support group for Christians struggling with same-sex attraction.

In 2011, Torres served the LGBTQ community as a Christian minister. They served at Abundant Peace UCC under Revered Wilferd Moore. They taught Sunday School and occasionally gave sermons. Abundant Peace is well known for their transgender outreach.

At the time, Torres was passionate about expressing the unconditional love of Christ to all peoples.

In 2012, Torres left Christianity in realization that exclusion did not stop at sexual orientation. The Christian Church excluded entire nations and cultures. Years later, Torres saw that they were conditioned to believe that without the blood of Christ, they were not worthy of God’s love or Heaven. This caused extensive damage to the psyche / spirit. Torres no longer aligned with the fundamentals of Christianity.

In 2013 Torres wrote, produced, and starred in the short film The Tell-Tale Heart, a modern adaptation of Edgar Allan Poe’s classic short story. That same year, Torres produced a teaser trailer for their debut novel, I Heard the Pastor’s Daughter is Gay, with the intention of producing a feature film. 

In 2013 Torres co-wrote, co-produced, and co-starred in two stage plays, Only Fools and The Beloved, with Logan Writes.

In 2014, Torres played a featured background role in Tim Story’s Think Like a Man Too.

In 2015, Torres enrolled at LA Film School and met Professor Houston Howard, the leading Hollywood expert on transmediaWhile studying transmedia design, Torres gave up Hollywood filmmaking to create the Multiverse; a transmedia mega-story.

In 2016, Torres began studying and practicing Shamanism. Finally, they found a spiritual practice that honored all living beings. Shamanism brought healing to Torres’ broken spirit, distorted mind, and dysphoric body. Torres feels called to bring this healing to others, particularly those who suffer from PTSD.

Ikaika Torres is now the owner of Mercury Direct, a transmedia production group. They look forward to bringing together a team of indie artists to produce graphic novels, video games, big-budget screenplays, and volumes of thrilling fiction. Look out for interactive social-media storytelling!

This year, Torres is continuing with film school and shamanic training. They plan to film documentaries about gender and Shamanism.

Ikaika Torres is passionate about healing and expanding the collective consciousness through story and energy medicine.

Thank you for your courage and honesty, it’s openness like this that will help the world heal ♥

  2. Just wanted to say how immensely grateful I am for your videos and writings on twin flames. Only we twin flames can understand each other, amidst all the new age junk, the false information and the projections of people’s unconsciousness. Your work is a pillar of divine truth.

    Sending you love (to you and your twin ❤ )!!!

  3. I cannot even begin to articulate how deeply amazed I am by your presence and energy – though of course living in a higher vibration is normal for you given you are a Being from one of those beloved planets that are light years away from us – I sometimes wonder which one. But which one in truth doesn’t matter. What is important is that you are proof that Light Beings from the galactic federation or similar loving galaxies are sending their own kind to Gaia to assist and inspire us with ascension, connection to creator source and so much more. In Gratitude and Joy I thank you for your soul resonance. MCF

  4. Hey Akasha I’ve been following you for a while now and I gotta say we have a lot in common. Is your birthday December 17 or 18? I’m on the 17th. I recently had a kundalini activation before your lastest video and the experience of my kundalini activation is around the whole concept of true love and non attachment. Anyway just wanted to say I’m happy to know there’s like another version of me out there. Hopefully we can share/talk more later.

      1. Reaching what? My kundalini activation? Both times it seem like it was triggered accidentally whenever I have a breakdown. I feel like an amateur with this whole kundalini awakening. It’s hard to meditate sometimes because my body would burn up. Sometimes I would feel like stinging prickles all over my body like being shocked from electricity then I would be drained the next day.

      2. I meant reaching out, lol. Stupid autocorrect.

        It sounds like you’re doing well. I think that when you feel these sensations, you are destroying outdated mental complexes.

  5. Akasha’s energy work has made a huge impact on my life. If anyone is considering doing energy work of any kind with Akasha, do it! They performed a remote extraction on me while I was asleep and recorded the session. Wow! I was in tears when I woke up and heard the recording. It was so spot on, and I cannot describe how much lighter I felt. I felt (and feel) so much more myself. I feel like the extraction successfully cut energetic ties with people that I formed draining attachments to, and I feel like my energy is mine again. I woke up feeling joyful (wow! That is a big one for me) I felt motivated, and positive, and I felt like doing things for myself, by myself. I feel more independent, and less attached to people who have broken my heart. I also feel a deep sense of compassion and forgiveness for them, and I am learning to not need their presence (and be happy about it!) thank you Akasha. I feel like my brain has been re-wired. Thank you, thank you, thank you. Eternally.
