My first Blog
July 27, 2017
My services offer a bundle of 3 Reiki sessions.
I have found this to be most effective and then recommend a ‘tune up’ when you feel it necessary.
The First Session:
If you have never experienced Reiki, you will think you are relaxing and you will be receiving the blissful energy, but you probably will not be as open to the magnificence of Universal Life Force, as could be. Your main chakras will be cleared and you will probably leave with a feeling of calmness, and have a most wonderful sleep that night.
The Second Session:
You will relax into the energy of the house, the room, the bed and myself. You will probably allow real healing to begin, whether that be physical, mental, emotional or spiritual; your body and soul know what it needs and the energy that flows to you, goes where it is needed.
You will feel peaceful and have a restful night’s sleep…and things will start to shift for you.
The Third Session:
Relax, Receive, Rejuvenate.
You chose me for a reason. It was time and we were drawn together. You want this. You Trust now. Let go and allow the Reiki energy to clear any unwanted energy blockages and receive for your highest good.
Gifts from the Universe
Gifts from the Universe!
The Universe is continually giving us signs to show us we are on our right path. We need only to listen and be observant. Each time I am aligned with my highest truth, I receive wisdom insights, downloads and inspirations from the Universe.
The trick is to Trust and then to take Action.
These Chakra mugs were divinely inspired after teaching my first Reiki class. Each mug speaks and affirms to a balanced Chakra, reminding us to Relax. Decide each morning which Chakra you need to nurture. Repeat your Affirmation throughout your day as you Create a Wonderful Day!
Thank you Universe!
Reiki, with No Box
January 19, 2019
As I enter my 5th year as Comfort Care/Reiki Practitioner in a Long Term Care Home, I have come to know so much more than I learned in my Reiki Certifications.
Reiki works with each Practitioner in a unique way and it is up to us to Listen to it.
Reiki guides us always. We just have to Get out of our own Way.
I have learned that before I even go to my place of work (one day a week) I must become Reiki, spending quiet time with prayers of protection, asking for guidance for each person I meet during the day and instilling myself with the knowing that I must Listen to where I am guided each and every moment of my day there. When I walk in the doors, I AM Reiki.
I had to, not only Think outside of the Box, from Systematic Reiki, but get rid of the Box itself!
I may prepare a list of Residents to see, but as soon as I walk out into the Home, I am guided to where I need to go. I find this like an Adventure, a healing Adventure and there is no greater feeling than to spend time, sharing the Reiki energy to the Elders. They are so appreciative of the Love, nurturing energy, touch, hugs and attention they receive. They are always Grateful; even if they cannot speak, they tell me with their eyes.
Reiki is humbling, blissful and peaceful, filling your Aura with your Light shining all around you.
Reiki reduces stress, bringing deep relaxation to mind, body and spirit. In this simple, safe and natural method of healing, your body is restored to balance, from the fight or flight response we find ourselves in most of the time.
Reiki works on an energetic level, neither diminished nor limited by distance.
As my business name was divinely inspired, the words say it all.
Preparation for a Distant Reiki session:
Relax ~ For your best healing experience, know what you want to work on in the session. Discuss your intention and meditate on receiving that. Trust the process and then Relax
Allow yourself this time in a place with no distractions. Lie down, with a blanket and listen to calming music. Have pen and paper by you. Set your alarm for 90 minutes, as you may doze off.
Receive ~ You may experience deep relaxation, warmth, peace, a feeling of being held and nurtured, a sense of comfort, visualize colours or images or see loved ones or may fall asleep. Whatever you experience, healing is taking place on some level and will continue to do so.
Rejuvenate~ After the session
Allow yourself time afterwards to integrate back and reflect on any experiences. Journal. Be mindful. The Universe will nudge you with guidance.
As you have released old, stuck energy, your healing process will begin. Whether that be physically, mentally, emotionally or spiritually.
Physically~ you may experience headache, nausea, tiredness, flu-like symptoms. The toxins are finding their way out to shift your frequency.
Taking a bath with Epsom salts, can help draw out the toxins faster.
Drink lots of water to help the toxins flush faster. If you feel tired, rest and rejuvenate. When we sleep, our bodies heal.
Mentally~ Past thoughts might resurface, so you can feel them to heal them.
Emotionally~ Old emotions may become triggered and new emotions may be felt.
Spiritually~ You may receive guidance to do, read, choose something you have not done before, but deep down, it is something that will be for your highest good.
Reiki has a wisdom all of it’s own and works with you, specifically for your highest good and can never do harm.
If you have questions or want to learn more, it is my honour to serve you.

Distant Reiki Inspiration
December 31, 2022
Learning Distant Reiki in Level II was fascinating, as it allows the client the freedom to receive Reiki and remain where they are, if time and travel are restricted.
There are so many ways to send distant Reiki and I have tried many of them, including holding the client’s picture, using a crystal, a teddy bear or imagining the client lying on the reiki table. The teddy bear resonated with me the most and for years, I used one as the surrogate.
When the pandemic arrived in early 2020, I began giving distant Reiki often, using my teddy bear. During one session, I saw in my mind’s eye, the client’s body fill with white light and I received the guidance to create a unique surrogate and start using it as part of my team to deliver the Reiki energy to the client. I envisioned it to be a white light being, longer in length than a teddy bear, for easier hand placements, with chakras that I could touch, hands I could hold and made of a natural material. When I reached out to my friend who sews, knits and crochets, she said she would give it a go, modified a pattern to my specifications, crocheted with 100% cotton and stuffed it with polyester and had a prototype ready within a few weeks. I fell in love with this white light being and hand- picked the buttons from my local fabric store, to represent the 7 main chakras, hot gluing them on.
Excited to welcome her onto the team, I gave distant reiki to a client and during the session, came up with the name Celeste, meaning heavenly
or celestial. For me, offering Reiki is a heavenly experience, as we surrender to the Reiki source, knowing its wisdom will guide the session.
I treat my distant Reiki sessions the same way I would as if the client were in my home Reiki studio. After washing my hands and preparing myself and my room energetically for the session, in Ghasso position, I invoke prayer and thanks for all the healing the client is about to receive. I ask Celeste to represent the client, draw the distant symbol over her, repeating the client’s name three times. After Byosen Scanning, I begin the standard hand positions, as I learned in class.
I love cupping my hands on the sides of the beautiful round
face. The front and back chakras can be given Reiki simultaneously, which not only feels powerfully intense, but is yet another advantage to distant Reiki, by being able to
maneuver the body better.
I prefer to listen to Reiki music with the 3-minute bells during distant Reiki sessions. The bells provide a gentle reminder, keeping me on track, as I merge with the energy that sometimes absorbs my attention to time. Reiki and my intuition have shown me ways to work with Celeste with a continuous flow of energy through the chakras, shoulders, hands, knees and feet. After the session is complete, with CKR, I hug Celeste, thank her for assisting me in our Reiki offering and clear her of any further responsibility…until next time.
Distant Reiki allows me to connect more fully, with no physical distractions. My favorite time to give Distant Reiki to a client is in the evening. After the session, during our phone check in, they tell me they are relaxed and ready for bed. I am grateful that when I give, I also receive, and one of the benefits of Reiki can be a restful sleep. A win win situation for both of us. Checking in with the client the next day, most say they had such a deep restorative sleep. Client feedback includes feeling the heat, knowing where I was on their body, feeling a tingling throughout their body, seeing colors, feeling lighter and feeling a sense of peace and calm. These are the same benefits often mentioned when I see a client in person.
Reiki not only has its divine wisdom, but also appears to connect us all in a union of nurturing love. My clients have made Reiki part of their self care during these times, by booking regular appointments. They are seeing the
difference in their mental health which is helping to alleviate many physical symptoms. I believe education of Reiki is paramount in having the clients return for more sessions.
