While struggling with a life event that left my body aching, my heart broken and my soul crushed I thought to myself "There's got to be a better way." There was no medical doctor that could prescribe a pill that was going to make me feel whole again. At a suggestion from a friend I tried Reiki. It was during this session that I felt my whole energy shift, my body felt soothed, my heart felt lighter and my soul was on the mend. In an instant I knew Reiki was going to be part of my life's journey from that moment on. I began learning how to practice Reiki on myself,  then on others and finally earning a certificate to teach Reiki. I currently have three Master/Teacher Certificates in Usui/Tibetan, Kundalini and Karuna Reiki®. I believe there are four aspects of healing: Physical, Emotional, Mental and Spiritual. Physical healing is to eradicate an illness or more simply alleviate the symptoms for a time. Emotional healing helps to calm any fears and to reach acceptance of the affects of the illness so that one would be able to move on with the rest of their lives. Mental (psychological) healing is reaching a place where you can relax and let go of stress and anxiety, as well as letting go of destructive, negative thought patterns, attitudes or prejudices that hold you back. Healing on a Spiritual level is having a loving and forgiving relationship with yourself, changing your belief system if it is restricting you, and ultimately allowing you to have greater self-expression and creativity. Reiki has set me on a path to healing that I never knew was possible. Healing my mind, body and spirit. It is my intention to heal those who believe they can heal, to guide those who need guidance and love those who need love.
