History of Solarraven
After I first got online in March 1996 I put up a  personal website at geocities in  April  of 1996 called Soulstar Adventures and put in a few pages about colors, Reiki, Crystal healing , Huna and other interests. Then, in typical Gemini fashion I just kept writing and doing  digital painting  and making web pages. This site is the current evolution of that original site. 
When it got too big for the free Geocities pages it became

   Solarraven eventually became a very active site with over two thousand visitors a day. Now because of some dificulties with the domain registration agency  the solarraven domain as I had it  has closed  as of November 2005.    We hope you will enjoy exploring the new site.  pjentoft is the new domain and home of all the pages that were previously at    The Old domain name was sold off by  Network Solutions to a marketing firm and is now full of ads for Yoga mats. I am not in any way affiliated with the new owners of  and do not endorse their  products.

I have tried to arrange the 700 or so pages here into general catagories  so that specific articles will be easier to find.   These pages were written over the course of about twelve years . Some are based in part from notes taken as early as the late 60s.

 I  decided to go with my name as a domain name because I thought it was extremely unlikely that someone would write a song or book, or create a game   by that name which had happened previously with each of  my domain and web site names. I figured no one would want to buy the name or borrow it.  I was wrong though, someone did borrow my identity for a while for their Reiki business.    My image is here on the page  so you can tell  if its the real me or not. I am in the Los Angeles area and do not usually travel much  anymore.

A long biographical ramble
Far More than anyone would ever want to know about me.

Peggy Jentoft
Though I tend to avoid and eschew cetifications and such, I am a Reiki "Master" Teacher, a Color therapist and Crystal healing practitioner and  An Ordained All Faiths Minister with Chrysalis Ministries. I attended the Academy of Art College in San Francisco majoring in Fine Arts sculpture.   Now days I mostly do digital
painting and beading, I write about and practice Spiritual healing, practical metaphysics, divination, Energy work and Eclectic
spirituality and all kinds of other stuff. I have written various articles for eclectic and non denominational clergy, spiritual healers
and energy workers and have organized and teach several sets of energy work.

I facilitate several e-mail lists, write, transmit and teach energy work in an almost infinite array of modalities and practice and teach crystal healing, create mandala and other digital art for healing and meditation.

I have always been sensitive to energy and had occasional visions etc. the earliest at about the age of 4. I spent a lot of time trying to be normal but it did not work and was not nearly as much fun as being myself.
I have been attuned to a large number of different energy systems and have received many other energy work systems & energy functions during meditation. I've organized manuals for some of these Including the Crystal Deva Empowerments, The Companion Angel Empowerments and a set of Huna Empowerments. These workshops are offered by me and certified teachers in complete sets. My name, contact information and copyright should be on the manuals. Some people have been distributing the manuals without permission for very high fees. The energy come from source but the manuals and structure of the workshops is organized by Peggy Jentoft and should be clearly identified.

We( me, my husband and 2 of my 3 children) have lived in the Los Angeles area since being transferred from San Francico in 1998.
Like most Geminis I've had a variety filled life, lived in many homes and have always had many interests. Read mysteries, Science fiction and Fantasy as well as works related to the interests I write about, bead, love belly dance, have an herb garden, an insatiable curosity, and have been involved in spiritual exploration all of my life. late fifties, a Gemini with Sagitarius rising, Married with three daughters and have one grandchild. My husband is a retired physical security specialist and former District Commander of the Federal Protective Service, an obscure part of what is now called the Homeland Security Department. He was also a Police Weapons instructor and RangeMaster as part of his work. My husbund is a very level headed grounded VikingI have three daughters, 32, 21, and 19 and one granddaughter. We have 1 dog, 4 cats, and some birds.

I have a bit of a Magpie mind, picking up all kinds of different bits here and there and playing with
them "ooo shiny!" thoughts, things, ideas. I may focus on one subject intensely for a while or may flit around. I love to stir seemingly unrelated bits together and see what comes of it.
I'm a Wife, mother, grandmother,crone, an artist,an energy worker and a writer of sorts. I'm kind of an Omnist, My background
includes Non Pauline Christianity, Ekayana and Mahayana Buddhism, Panentheism, Cosmic and Nature centered Spirituality, Taoism, Eclectic
Pagan teachings and more. I have a non denominational Ordination through Chrysalis Ministries, am not affiliated with a specific church.

I view natal astrology as a rough map of our chosen life plans and missions. Born in Gemini with Sag rising, with a Pluto, Moon, Saturn conjunction in eighth house,I don't usually see dead people but I have sometimes, and have had conversations etc.. I feel energy , emotions, smell "psychic" fragrances, have the occasional vision, yet stay pretty grounded in the mundane world too.
Curious about everything. Some areas I'm conservative and in others I'm a wild radical spirit. I'm younger now than when I was a child. Born Eclectic and innately Heretical. It does not matter what the subject is somehow I always turn out to have heretical ideas. I had been a bit of a wanderer but have been in the same house now for 10 years. Born in Oregon, spent time in some Foster homes, Lived in San Francisco for many years, was a Hippie, Snake show shill, a bank clerk, Frankenstein Photo Girl at a wax Museum, and always an artist and energy worker and student. Now Live near Los Angeles.

The solarraven site has all kinds of things about Digital Art, Reiki manuals, energy work, spiritual healing, meditation, Huna, the Hawaiian spirituality and psychology practices,angels, nature and spirituality, the aura and chakras, Mandala, rants and heretical opinions plus pain shop pro gradients and more. I write about whatever Gets my attention. Mostly these are written at an introductory level and are based on my experiences rather than just book learning. I have a couple of e-mail groups about Crystal Healing and Practical Mystic2
with methods,information and explorations of metaphysical and mundanestuff. I'm the Author of several popular online Reiki manuals as well as those for The Crystal Deva Empowerments and The Companion Angel Empowerments Energy work sets among others. I have seen spirits , had visions and explore metaphysics and spirituality as well as more mundane interests. Its fine with me if you don't believe in any of that stuff I cultivate & encourage healthy skepticism along with openmindedness.
