Hello. That’s me up there.

As far back as I can remember I’ve been intrigued by spirit and spiritual pursuits knowing deep down and profoundly that there is more to life than the physical. There is you know. Some people say that’s crazy and that they don’t believe in anything that they can’t see and/or measure. You can’t see or measure Love can you? You believe in that don’t you? Because you’ve felt it! Well just like that I can feel other energies and if you open up you can too. Reiki is one of those entities that to date can’t be ‘seen’ or measured but talk with Reiki clients and you’ll think differently. Try the healing practice of Reiki and you’ll KNOW differently! Anyway, I digress.

Although this spiritual/new-age mind-set is more accepted now in society, back when I was growing up (60’s & 70’s) it scared people so I kept my interest hidden for the most part. I did engage with friends in Ouija Board, Séances, watched Dark Shadows and looked for evidence Vampires and other otherworldly creatures, etc. though!

So I went about my life denying passions and carrying spirit with me quietly.  I got caught up in climbing the proverbial ladder and acquiring all kinds of material goods, raising a family etc. I remained robustly healthy, eating well (most of the time) and exercising more often than not. At 35 however my health started to wane. This was mainly due to stress overload, toxic exposure build up and ignoring emotional needs. I won’t bore you with the details but the bottom line is that after 2 years of scary symptoms and illness and needles and testing, my Western Doctors could not figure out what was wrong with me! I just wanted a diagnosis but that was not forthcoming. Maybe you understand that frustration? They guessed it was either Lyme or Lupus but tests were not conclusive for either. I got sick of being discouraged and allowing other people to be in charge of my health so I got supremely angry and took control of my own treatment.

I began to own my recovery and put myself on a Gentle Yoga & Meditation regimen later adding Reiki which was almost unheard of at that point. I moved back to spiritual pursuits that I had denied long ago due to societal pressures. Other alternative treatments like acupuncture, cleanses, naturopathy, etc. were used but Reiki,Yoga & Meditation were my true saviors. This treatment combination after 2 months had me feeling almost back to my old self. Whew!

And in short, that is why I believe so strongly in these treatments that I provide. The body/mind/emotion connection is strong and is under appreciated in our society. If you are not being helped by standard treatments or need a boost to these treatments, give Reiki a try. You DO possess the seeds of healing inside of you. You have already started feeding them by researching alternative care. Great job! Now you just need to water them a bit more by scheduling your first session. If you need to talk to me before you do that I am quite happy to do so. Don’t let your momentum fade. In order to fulfill your purpose here on earth you must feel strong, feel your best!
