In 2001, my whole life changed; I moved on from a relationship, moved into a new home, and decided to take a year off to find myself.
I was blessed to have many supportive people in my life, and they encouraged the many life changes I was making. I felt that it was ‘now or never’; it was time to start living the life I always dreamed of. When I look back at this period, I understand I was going through my spiritual awakening. It was during this time of deeper awareness I found my direct relationship with the Creator. Experiencing my direct contact with Source, led me to have a deeper connection to myself.
Every aspect of my life was changing! Even though the choices I made brought many positive life experiences, it also brought up old unresolved emotions. These unresolved feelings resulted in increased anxiety, rippling through different areas of my life. Four months after leaving my job, I experienced my first Reiki session at a bed and breakfast with a woman named Janice. During the session my body vibrated intensely, I had an out of body experience, I cried and laughed, felt powerful energy surging through my whole body and ‘saw’ the most incredible colours. While this was all happening, I was in a suspended state – free of time and space. Towards the end of the session, I received a message, “You are to be the one on the other side of the table.” I understood this as guidance for my life path; I had found my purpose. Needless to say, it was a profoundly exceptional event that shifted my life forever.
Shortly after my session I completed my Reiki Level I training. In a relatively short period my emotional blocks and anxieties began to dissolve and were replaced with a deep calm and clarity; a profound connection to God and my higher pure energy self. As a result of the tremendous benefits that emerged, I was extremely excited to start sharing this life-transforming energy with as many people as I could.
I began giving myself Reiki every day and also practiced on family and friends. I loved sharing Reiki with loved ones, but I wanted to have the experience of giving a session to a stranger. I then created my first Reiki website and very slowly clients started to come. Back in the early 2000’s Reiki was not well known and getting the message out was challenging. Determined to seek more practice, I was fortunate to find Wellsprings, a cancer support organization. I had the privilege of volunteering one day a week at the Wellspring Westerkirk House at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre in Toronto. It was during my two years of working with cancer patients I experienced firsthand the tremendous healing power of Reiki energy. I’m forever grateful for what I learned. This exceptional involvement taught me something I don’t believe I could have learned any other way – listen to the body, connect to your heart, our answers are within.
By connecting with the healing energy of Love and Light, the body is given the space to bring forth what it needs for us to be aware of on a mental, emotional, physical and spiritual level.
After practicing for about a year, I was very motivated to share and teach others everything I was learning. I then went on to complete my Reiki Master/Teacher level. I distinctly remember teaching my first Reiki Level I class, during this call I initiated my twin sister Sandra. During the class, I had a deep knowing come to me; what I was teaching would profoundly transform people’s lives.
Expanding My Abilities….
One of the countless benefits of practicing Reiki is the enhancement of your intuitive and psychic abilities. I became very aware of my heightened level of perception and once this started happening it opened me up to exploring other modalities. Over the years, I have read hundreds of books on personal and spiritual development. I have taken courses in Reconnective Healing, Akashic Record, Deep Trans Meditation, Hypnotherapy, NLP, Emotional Freedom Technique -EFT, Theta Healing, Abuse Counselling, Past Life Regression, Chakra Balancing, and Angel Reading.
Service to Others….
Now, when I meet with clients for an initial consultation, I recommend an Integrated Session as an initial visit; this is a two-hour session that will give us the time to do a combination of spiritual guidance, pattern shifting, and energy work. I hold space and guide the client to understand and move into a much deeper level and begin the journey into a higher more balanced state of being.
I assist individuals to heal painful emotions, find clarity and tap into Universal Intelligence; Creation energy which prevails within us all. My excitement comes from empowering clients to connect to their innate self-healing, to lay their life foundation actualized from a place of self-love.
