My Journey with Reiki
From my Reiki 1 Class April 2017
Rei Ki means universal life energy. Although Dr. Usui is officially credited for discovering Reiki in 1922, after he went on a meditation retreat to Mt. Kurama in Japan, it is a gift that has always been part of humanity.
My intuition tells me that we all carry the gift to access this flow of energy present in everything. It feels like we have been asleep for a long time and are now finally reawakening to the knowledge that we can heal ourselves and others through vibration.
Reiki officially came to me in 1994 through my friend Nancy Telford who was already a Reiki Master/Teacher back then. As a new mom, I was looking for some relief to balance myself. I committed to sessions at Nancy's office and noticed the profound and positive impact it was making in my life.
It would still take me many years before starting my journey as a teacher, but in 2005 I became a Usui Reiki Master/Teacher and a Karuna® Reiki Master/Teacher the following year.
Since then I have trained many wonderful people, and I am so happy to see our tribe growing. Teaching Reiki and Energy Healing is one of the most rewarding activities in my life. My goal as a spiritual healer and teacher is to assist everyone in their personal transformation to optimum health and happiness, to reach their highest purpose in life.
I currently teach Reiki 1 twice a year, and many students continue on to Reiki 2 and ART/Reiki Master. I like to incorporate basics of energy healing into my Reiki classes, so for Reiki 1 I teach about Aromatherapy, Bach flower essences and Crystal healing in combination with the Chakra system.
The following pictures are from the Reiki 1 practitioner class this April. There is no pic of me since I was the photographer as well :).
