I first heard about Reiki in college. I had taken what I thought would be a bullshit course my senior year to have enough credits to graduate- "Strategies in Stress Reduction."

That ended up being one of the most important decisions I made in my life, because of a guest speaker who came to talk about- you guessed it, Reiki energy healing.

She described how she gave Reiki to cancer patients at a local hospital, and as she talked about the technique I had a HUGE moment of deja vu. I recalled how ever since I was a young kid, I would fall asleep with my hands in certain positions on my body, which I do even today. I realized that I had been doing Reiki on myself my whole life.

I could not stop thinking about it. I knew I needed to learn more about Reiki and go through the training to be able to share healing with others. Without knowing why, I knew it was part of my destiny to do so. 

It took me a couple years to do my Level 1 Attunement but, as it always does, it happened at the perfect time and I started sharing Reiki healing with friends and clients right away with profound results. To say my life changed completely is an understatement. Everything that no longer served my highest good fell away. I became more confident. My spiritual abilities developed rapidly. I discovered ways to connect with my higher self and the Other Side that I never had before. Life became more magical, richer, deeper. 

Fast forward 6 years, I have now completed my Levels 1, 2, and 3/Master.

But what exactly IS Reiki?

Reiki is a hands-on healing technique from Japan that is based in the belief that we are animated and kept alive by an intelligent life force.

The name of this force differs culture to culture- prana, kundalini, chi, qi, Reiki- but the idea is the same: if this life force diminishes due to stress and environmental factors, we are more likely to get sick and feel unbalanced.

Reiki healers are able to channel this energy into their client, working with various points on and around the body, filling them up once again with goodness so the body and aura can heal itself. Anyone is able to train to become a Reiki healer, and it is complementary with ALL religions and spiritual practices.
