A Reiki Life

Are you intuitive? Sensitive? Highly Emotional?

Being sensitive to the energies, emotions and thoughts of the people and environment you are in can leave you feeling drained, exhausted and overwhelmed.  These traits often feel more like a burden than a gift.

Many years ago I felt very overwhelmed by my life, felt out of control and burdened by what should have made me joyful.

Reiki helped me. To be honest the reason I took my first Reiki course was simply to get out of my house. It represented 8 hours of no pressure, burdens or responsibilities and that is what I needed so badly.  

Once I started working with the Reiki energy I knew I was on to something. I started to feel calmer inside, felt stronger and more in control. I had a tool that seemed to be doing something positive, although I didn’t really understand what it was doing.

So I took level 2. Again, with honesty I will say the idea of another 8 hours of no pressure, burdens or responsibilities was highly enticing, but this time my curiosity was hooked. I knew there was more to this, I knew I had something important at my fingertips and I knew it was tangible.

After Level 2 I really noticed the shift in who I was and in my environment. I had always been sensitive, intuitive and energetically aware, but in all the courses I had ever taken on spirituality and personal development (and there were  alot!) none had felt so life changing, so empowering and so real.

Eventually my walk with Reiki developed from a tool I used to being a way of life. I went on to take my Master/Teacher and then my Karuna Master/Teachers. I embraced the Holy Fire energies when they were added. I welcomed students along the way, slowly my Reiki tool turned into a Reiki life.

Eventually I was invited to join the Oasis Rejuvenation Spa & Retreat Team where I participated in wellness programs with a variety of practitioners from different modalities and with a variety of clients from moderate to very serious health issues both physically and mentally.  I also continued to teach and started a monthly Reiki Share group that has been a stable resource to my students & the public for five years.

This is a life I have been so blessed to live! Thank you for reading my story and I encourage you to embrace Reiki in your life too.

Action Choice – It’s all about You!

A word on Free Will. Free Will is our ability to choose our actions and our actions are what shape the elements of our life. Action is choice. We make choices everyday as to our attitude, what we will do, what we say, what we think, and what we feel. We must take responsibility for our action and put conscious choice into our lives for we are always shaping and creating what we are living. Sometimes that is a tough concept to swallow because we can’t believe we chose to live these current events, but reality is you did and you continue to do so. Most of us create subconsciously, without intention but rather through reaction but once we take the responsibility for ourselves and make conscious choices we start to create with intention what we want. This is when life gets exciting!
Take a self-discovery tour of yourself, really see who you are and what actions/choices you have been making that are shaping your life. Decide who you really want to be and start making choices of actions that align with that person. As you align your actions (ie: your thoughts, words, emotions, expression and actual doing) your life will begin to take a new shape. It is about taking responsibility for yourself. You have complete Free Will, no one is controlling you and no one is making decisions for you. If you want something different then what you have then you must make different choices.

Why? I asked the Universe.

Manifesting Mystery Revealed
Affirmations & Visualizations not working for you?

Why are affirmations & visualizations not working?

​Why am I doing lots and lots of personal development and positive thinking but nothing is changing?

Why am I so frustrated?

​This was me for a long time; reading books, taking courses, meditating and doing anything & everything to try and make sense out of my world. I knew there was more to life than the mundane old program, I knew there was something to all this energy talk and evolution of mankind but no matter how much time I spent meditating, repeating affirmations, visualizing and positive living my life did not get better, as a matter of fact, in a lot of ways, it was getting worse!

WHY? WHY? WHY? I asked the universe over and over! I am an intelligent person, I understand the material, I get the idea and I am doing all the right things!

Then one day I got it! I figured out the missing piece! It suddenly all made sense – I wasn’t showing up! That’s it, simple. I had stopped showing up in my life. What does that mean? It means we live in a physical world and the only thing that will change the physical world is physical action! I was working really hard on the mental/emotional/spiritual aspects of myself but I wasn’t taking ACTION. I was waiting for the world around me to catch up to my vibes and transform, but that is not how it works!

Now I wasn’t sitting in the corner of a dark room alone literally doing nothing. I was raising my kids and having a life, it was a good life but it wasn’t making me happy. I wanted more, or different, or something. My kids are great, I love my husband, I have a wonderful family, a nice house and am a pretty well loved lady, so what was so wrong? I was wrong! I wasn’t living as me, the true me!

I was following the societal program that said what a mother, wife, friend, daughter, and woman is. I had given up my control and responsibility to the program. I had buried the ‘real’ me so far inside that all I could identify was the restlessness that kept demanding to be heard. Once I realized that it was my actions that were creating my life circumstances I felt empowered. No longer did I have to continue the cycle of the same arguments, frustrations and mundane activities!

Once I started choosing new actions I got another surprise I wasn’t expecting. I started bumping into the programs and beliefs inside me that were wrong, the ones that were created to survive the societal program and were keeping the real me suppressed. The ones that said “you can’t do that” “that’s too risky” “people will laugh at you” “you are crazy” and “people will be offended”. I had to heal those programs and change those beliefs. Every time I did my life got better.

Once I started ‘Showing Up’ in my life and the true me, the real me, started to emerge I realized that there was still a lot more mystery to truly being in charge of creating my life my way. I started studying the Universal laws of gestation, karma, attraction, relativity and manifestation. I embraced my work with Reiki and the Akashic Records and learned as much as I could, applying what I learned as I went. Finally it all started to make sense, it all came together and I understood how to create the life I want. Do you want to know the secret? The missing piece? Here it is. The key to it all. Show up today as the person who is living your dream life. In other words, take action today as if you are already living the dream.

Simple right? It is. If this makes sense to you, great, apply and let the universe deliver! If you are like me and this sends your mind into a tizzy of whaaatttttt?????  Then I extend my hand & heart to you, one soul to another, come work with me. Book a healing session, join me for a Reiki Share or attend my workshop Chaos to Calm, these are great places to start.
