15 years ago I would never have envisioned my life where it is today, an energy worker, wife and mother. I have always been open minded to spiritual beliefs and religion (although having never followed an organized religion), mostly gravitating to the spiritual side of life.
As a young girl I had visions, dreams, gut feelings, hunches and even visits (not from this world). I actually thought I was crazy, over the years these happenings stayed with me but eventually were suppressed once I went to college and became too busy to even notice such happenings. It wasn’t until I was much older and in the middle of some trying times that I began to experience these ‘happenings’ once again, little did I know this was all just the beginning of what was about to become my new world.
Ken and I were trying for our second child and during that time we suffered 2 miscarriages back to back, we were devastated and hurt (like most couples who go through such things) and to make matters worse, my dearest Nanny (my mothers mom) had become very ill and was dying. I loved my nanny with all my heart, she really was ‘The Best’ grandmother any grandchild could ask for! Her passing was difficult for the entire family, Nanny was instrumental in all of our lives and I strongly feel that her teachings and company made us the strong and wonderful people we are today.
Needless to say, that was an awful year for me. Luckily I have great friends who are always close by, a friend of mine was doing what she does best (by taking care of her loved ones unconditionally) and asked me if I would like a Reiki treatment, her treat. Reiki?? What is Reiki? I said, this was totally new for me. But she had been receiving treatments for a while now and swore by them. What did I have to lose?
I had my first treatment, it was a beautiful 60 minute session which I will never forget. For the first time in over a year I had no more tightness in my chest, had a great sleep and felt like I had my first real grip on reality since Nanny passed. But that wasn’t what triggered my love affair with Reiki (not yet anyway), I couldn’t wrap my mind around how something like ‘energy work’ could alter ones mood, energy levels and create such a shift in ones self. I was intrigued to say the least, oh… and not to mention the ‘Bang on’ feedback I received after the session, how cool was that??
I always knew in my heart I was destined to help people, but I was looking in all the wrong places. I worked in EMS on an ambulance for about 5 years, but never felt fulfilled or satisfied at the end of my day (mostly just grossed out).
Shortly after Nanny’s passing all that changed!
After Nanny passed I had a series of events happening once again, which brought me right back to my high school days where I was questioning my sanity. I had begun having vivid dreams again, objects were being moved in the house that no one could explain, the t.v would turn itself on and off, the washing machine would shut off in mid cycle and would magically open its own lid (which was heavy) and the constant feeling that someone was in the house.
For sure I’m not crazy!! Thank goodness Ken was around for some of these events
Since none of this had ever scared me, only spiked my interest I felt like I should look into it. And now when I look back at those events, I feel like I was being gently pushed to pursue this avenue further more. So I decided to see a psychic (which my mom and I do once a year for fun) and see if I can get some answers.
As usual my visits with my psychic are always informative, precise and entertaining. But this visit was different….
She confirmed (and of course validated, no self respecting psychic tells you anything without blowing you away with the proof) that the unusual happenings were at the hands of my beloved Nanny (yeah) part of me knew that already, I just needed someone to confirm it. She had also mentioned that I was destined to use ‘healing hands’ to help my fellow man.
Whatever that meant??? Obviously, I hadn’t made the connection yet.
I did some research online and at the local book stores to see if there was some form of energy work I would be pulled towards, I only really knew about Reiki at that time and everything else seemed too odd to read. What I ended up buying was a couple of Doreen Virtue’s ‘Angel Therapy’ books (I now have a wide collection of her Angel books, and eventually took an Angel Empowerment Practitioner workshop).
A few months later I did a Personal Trainer course/workshop through CANFIT PRO, and the gal who did my testing was also a Reiki Master, and she was offering a Reiki Level 1 & 2 weekend workshop. I almost didn’t go through with my fitness certification, I didn’t think I really needed it, but I did it anyway and now I know why.
So I signed up, and I loved it! I learned so much that weekend and am still learning to this day about Reiki and its healing properties, I signed up for my Reiki Master’s a few months later and never looked back.
It’s been nearly two years since I realized what I was destined for, and my learning’s are still continuing. My experiences have taken me into ‘Mediumship’ (connecting with spirit), ‘Angel & Tarot’ card readings and Angelic Realm communications.
And believe me, there is MUCH more to come!!
I have been gently pulled towards helping many people during this time. But the one group of people I can’t seem to help enough is WOMEN!!
I feel it is a misconception that men are the ones who ‘suffer in silence’ and aren’t comfortable speaking up about depression and other emotional imbalances. In this day and age, women have more than ever on their plates. And us women know we are guilty of trying to do it all, without having to ask for outside help. And as a result of being ‘Super Woman’ we often suffer the side effects…
~Depression ~Stress ~Anxiety ~Insomnia are the cases I see most in women, especially those of you who stretch themselves out too far (you know who you are missy)
Being that I AM this woman, and I too HAVE suffered from all of the above. I have made it my mission and purpose to help other women who are in the same shoes I once wore. Using Reiki energy and Angelic healings I help women every day, overcome and beat down the imbalances that once impaired their quality of life.
What makes my heart sing at the end of the day, is when a client tells me for the first time in years she feels free of all that was holding her back, and can resume being ‘Super Woman’ (a better balanced version of her)
I can hardly believe how this journey panned out and how drastically it has changed my life for the best. I am a better mother, wife, friend, healer and all round better person now that I have incorporated Reiki and Spiritual Healing into my world.
It is my passion is to help heal the world, one person at a time.
With Much Love & Light,
A Better Balanced Life
