Winning the Gold in Reiki Olympics!

A Bronze olympics medal with clipping path isolated on white

I recently heard someone say they didn’t believe someone could just take a Reiki class and be able to give energy and understand what it is doing with out being a natural healer.  I have to disagree, as I believe EVERYONE has this natural ability to heal, you just have to want to be able to do it!

Back in the late 1990’s I didn’t think I could give Reiki as I wasn’t in the medical field. I was told that energy is within all of us, and anyone could learn how to move it by learning Reiki and use it to reduce stress.  I was in!
I believe Reiki hooks you with the “reduce stress” ability and then slowly allows you to see and benefit from the increasing amount of ways it can lead you to enlightenment. Yes, I said it, enlightenment.  It is not something that happens in a weekend from taking the Reiki 1,2 and Master class. This happens after years of perfecting your craft. There is a huge benefit to doing something over and over again.  Like preparing for the Olympic games, practice is a must!
I practiced on anyone who would allow me to work on them.  Animals, plants, trees, Mother Earth all received energy from me. With each new person, place or thing I worked on I would get another piece of the puzzle to see the complete picture.
I don’t believe you need to “be” a natural healer to learn Reiki, but I do believe you can learn Reiki and “become” a natural healer.  Don’t listen to the nay sayers who haven’t done it, learn from the people who have done it!  Go for the Gold!

I have a bag that says: Life is a journey, not a destination.

life is
What it really means is that the journey is about learning to go with the flow no matter what happens to you. EVERY thing that happens in your life is there to teach you a life lesson. Too many times we try to control every single thing that happens to us. Going with the flow means that when a lesson gets handed to you, you have an opportunity to grow. Don’t react instantly. Take time to think about what is the best answer for you. Meditate on it, ask for Divine Guidance. Realize you have a choice in every instance to grow.

All you need is Love from my book!

rose heart


I have been on an ALL YOU NEED IS LOVE campaign for a while now, and can see this being a thing I do forever.

This is in the book I am writing about reiki:

I want people to understand that with LOVE anything and everything is possible. This morning I woke knowing I need to implement that more in my own life. It is easy to say. However, doing it is different. To be able to come from a place of love ALL THE TIME, no matter what the situation takes an unbelievable amount of internal strength. NO ONE sees that and it makes me realize that those who have it worked extremely hard to get it. It involves putting ALL emotion aside and letting the LOVE take over. There is an intense amount of personal work involved. There is more listening and less talking, and the understanding comes because of it. …

When is the right time to take a reiki class?

In recent months many who come for reiki sessions discuss wanting to take reiki class, but it’s not the right time now.  “I am too stressed with my job, the house, the family….I don’t have time.” These are exactly the reasons why it’s the right time to do it!

Reiki helps by giving you the energy you need to get through it all!  It gives you the inner knowing that everything will be done in the right timing, with little worry on your part.  Reiki can be used to calm yourself in the middle of the stress to bring you back to balance.  In as little as 15 minutes, daily reiki goes to where you need it most, giving you the highest energy boost, naturally.

If you have been called to try reiki for stress, and you find it works, do the nest best thing; take the class to learn it for your mind, body and spirit! I guarantee you will not be disappointed in the results!

No, you don’t have to be a psychic to be intuitive!

I thought I was actually afraid of the dentist. Before my appointment I would end up in the bathroom with major stomach issues.  I finally decided this was not healthy and canceled my appointment. Once I did that, I was able to figure out what was going on.  Earlier in the week my son had gone to another dentist and told me he didn’t need the seven filings that my dentist suggested. This was a red flag, but not big enough for me to consider an issue for me.

  1. Let the emotions through you, don’t hold on to them.
  2. Once all the emotions are done you can look at the situation objectively.
  3. Meditate and ask questions….why was I feeling this way? Was it me?
  4. Continue to ask questions until you hit the ah-ha moment!

Then when my stomach was bothering me, it hit me that I don’t trust this dentist now.  The dentist didn’t do anything to me, and yet it was enough to make me uncomfortable.  I finally got the nerve to call and explain my issues as I politely asked for a copy of my file.  The response was simple, all dentists act in the best interest of their clients.  This dentist was pro-active when it comes to filings.  I decided I wanted a dentist not so proactive to use up my dental plan savings.  This pushed me to find a new dentist, one of compassion, and yes, she does exist! I am no longer afraid to go to the dentist!

Your intuition is huge when it comes to steering you in the right direction.  It will keep pushing you until you realize something is off.  When you know how you feel when everything is right, remember it.  This makes it easier and quicker to recognize when you are off balance.  When you know you are off balance start asking questions right away and figure out why.  Is it the people you are with or a situation you are dreading?  Then ask more questions and keep going until you know, without a doubt, how to solve the problem.

Your body is the soul of your emotions.  All emotions show up in your body to make you pay attention. If your stomach is nervous, there is a reason.  Once you start listening to your intuition on the basics of your body, it grows from there!  This is the first step in being intuitive!

It’s been a year since Mom passed and I’ve grown in ways that I didn’t see coming.


Me and Mom

I don’t know if it’s because now I’m the oldest female in the family, but understanding time is different now.  I am keenly aware of the limit to time on Earth.  Before Mom passed I was urgently in a hurry to get things done because no one knows when time will end.  My theory was I should do as much as possible today because I am not sure if I will be here tomorrow.  Hurry, Hurry, Hurry was my internal time beat.  Work, clean the house, grocery shop.  Hurry, Hurry, Hurry. Tend to everyone else’s needs, run the gerbil treadmill, HURRY!

Since Mom has passed, life has slowed down.  Part of it is sheer energy depletion from emotional changes due to her death. The other part is a clear realization that the things you value and give importance to will always happen.  The rest is not important and to stress about it is a waste of time and more importantly, energy.  The things that I do I now, I do with the BE HERE NOW mentality.  I listen more, judge less, and I try hard to see the good in EVERY THING.  Sometimes I have to strain to see it, but it’s always there.  And above all I see and hear with LOVE.  When you see with love, everything has meaning.  When you hear with love, everything is important.  All the senseless stuff doesn’t get me upset any more. I simply walk away from the drama.  This enhanced knowing has calmed my heart and allowed me to see the bigger picture.

People are love. Yes, it is hard to see immediately in some people. Everyone is with the people you are with for a reason.  We all have something to share to enhance each other’s lives.   Love lets you see it. Put aside the petty bickering, look for the love.  This doesn’t mean you should let people take advantage of you in any way.  There are still common sense limitations here, but when you look with love you see from a different angle.  When you look with love, your understanding is enhanced.  The love angle is one that comes from your heart, goes out to another, leaves their heart and comes back to you.  It’s shape is the heart, it starts at the bottom point and goes up, into their heart, makes a hook and connects to yours, returning to the bottom point where there is no division.  Look for it in every encounter, and you will become a new person.

Mom is still teaching me, I love you!

All YOU need is LOVE to heal!

It’s true! Reiki is pure unconditional love from God/Universe. When giving reiki, the energy of love is what you are passing onto your client. The practitiioner works with this loving energy to heal what is needed on that day. When working with this love energy, nothing is held back from healing. This is how miracles happen with reiki.  I have seen it happen over and over, again and again.

Think about it, if anyone who healed used anything BUT love, would they be able to heal?  Jesus, Buddha, Quan Yin, any Saint, Archangels….pick one. They all come from a LOVE vibration. They all heal.

I know you are thinking you don’t have that special “power” that a deity possesses. I tell you this, I NEVER thought that when I was learning reiki in nineteen ninety something that it would evolve to this level of healing. It takes more concentration on love than I can explain here, but I tell you it works. It is why it is still the fastest growing natural alternative healing technique that anyone can learn easily.

LOVE is many things- unconditional acceptance, understanding, patience, respect, beauty and peace.  While giving reiki you feel or sense all of these things, you can give so much love that the negative energy of illness is healed. There are many layers to healing, and if you have done the work to be healed, it will be done.  Some healing involves emotional and spiritual work before the physical healing can happen.  The interesting part is that whatever you need, you get in your private reiki session.  Depending on the type of healing that is needed, this could take more than one session.  The good news is, Love is all YOU need! Reiki is all YOU need!

Want to learn it?  The next certification class is Sat., April 2 and Sat., April 9 , both classes are Noon-4pm, Each class is $100 payable in cash or check.  Both classes are required for certification.

Usui Traditional Reiki 1 class gives you two attunements in each reiki class. Learn the evidence based history of reiki, understand the emotions and organs that balance your chakras, use stones that are associated with healing the chakras. Give reiki to yourself, others and pets after the first 4 hour class! The first degree focuses on getting used to the energy, learning to recognize the energy as it moves through you and feeling the pull of the energy. Learning to trust your intuition is key here. With a class size of 3 or less, I ensure you leave confident in your skills, and capable of healing clients with various conditions during their first session with you! I am available by text, phone and email for questions after class, for on-going FREE support. NO previous experience is necessary! A Reiki Practitioner never loses the ability to do Reiki. Even if you haven’t used it in months or years, whenever you start again, the ability returns. Reiki is the gift that lasts a lifetime!

DNA healing questions and the answers within YOU!


I found a series of questions that bring you to a deeper understanding of your beliefs and emotions. Is it possible that they are in your DNA?  If they are in cells, and come from generations of ancestral stories how do we change those patterns? The answers are locked inside you!

To heal or change your life, the low vibration of your life experiences and those of your ancestors needs to be replaced with a higher one.  By neutralizing the energy with a change of heart, transformation can take place. Our hearts bring us to forgiveness, and resolution to the situation. Forgiveness supports and strengthens you, helping you to evolve on your life’s journey.

There are five levels of questions to unlock the answers.  I have done this with five people now.  All agree, “There is something to this!”  All that is needed is the right questions in the correct order to unlock the answers that are within you!

Health, money, relationships, career or behaviors can be changed! Interested in changing your life? The session is $25, as I believe this should be financially feasible for all! It takes about an hour, call or text for your private and confidential appointment today!  860-620-7709

Reiki with Jesus



It took me a long time to be able to discuss this topic publicly, but this is the core of who I am, and what I know for sure (as Oprah would say!). A lot of people consider them selves spiritual, not religious.  I am one of those people who attended Catholic services with my Grandmother, had first communion and then only attended as the part time Catholics do- on holidays.

I learned Usui Reiki and it brought me back to my belief in Jesus even stronger than what I learned in church.  Church taught me to pray to Jesus, reiki taught me to heal with him (I Corinthians 12:28-31).  The heart centered difference is what I believe most people are looking for today.
I wanted to know God and Jesus internally, not through prayer alone.  I wanted to know God and Jesus are with me daily, not just on Sunday.  I wanted to know my faith of God and Jesus in my heart not just hear it in my ears.  I wasn’t getting what I wanted in church.
Reiki brought me back to the more natural path.  Be grateful and acknowledge blessings, choose kindness, love more, learn patience and be peace. Yes, the bible talks about all these things, but how do I learn them in the modern day? Everyday life lessons bring about these for consideration.  But more and more people are hitting stumbling blocks that don’t go away, and are getting bigger instead.
Reiki helped me go inside and learn the value of putting aside emotions to deal only with facts.  Reiki helped me stop and smell the roses daily.  Reiki helped me realize the value of ALL human life and because of it, choose kindness. Reiki helped me LOVE healing because Jesus is a part of it (John 14:12)!  Reiki helped me to be peaceful when everyone around me is falling apart. Reiki was my answer.  IT IS NOT a religion, but certainly helped me reconnect with mine.   I don’t know if Jesus used “reiki”, but I am convinced reiki is linked to a form of healing he did use. The similarities are too close not to be related in some way.
If you are looking for support for your spirituality or religion, please text, email or call me!  I have worked with people of many faiths, and it works with them all!  I don’t want to discuss your religion, or want to change your current belief system, I just want to show you how to enhance what you already love with reiki!  I can tell you I would not be the same person with out reiki!
Sharing the light is my soul purpose….helping you is my blessing.
