My JourneyThe word “Reiki” always held an interest for me but the 9 to 5 treadmill of life always got in the way of exploring what Reiki was all about. One Reiki treatment opened the way to a new way of thinking, feeling and living.
Undertaking Reiki 1 and 2 showed me a way to self-heal linking general health and wellbeing to the whole person (body, emotions, mind and spirit) not just one aspect. To have a philosophy which could improve the quality of life whether it be for pain relief, assisting in recovery from illness, reducing stress or simply to find more energy really resonated with me. Being a gentle, easy to learn, non-invasive practice which can be incorporated into any lifestyle suited my then time poor routine. I could also see the benefits not only on humans but also my animal family.
Following some major changes in my work environment in late 2012 Reiki enabled me to take on a more peaceful approach to my job particularly by drawing on and living by the 5 precepts for daily living. Looking at treatment of family members with conventional medicine I began to explore other modalities and realised how well Reiki complements both traditional and many natural therapies. The tides were turning now that I had Reiki in my life.
Armed with a confidence to follow my intuition and not worry about an uncertain financial future I left the 9 to 5 treadmill, sold up my residence of 30 years in outer-east Melbourne and have moved to a farming community in country New South Wales.
My VisionOur society has led us to such a fast paced way of life where even when we do have time to set aside to take “time out” we add another activity to our life that brings on stress and pressure. My vision is to provide Reiki to others, in my new home in the southern Riverina, as part of a self-care routine to promote relaxation, nurture and rejuvenate. I wish to empower others in relation to decision making about their own health and wellbeing and for them to discover the innate tools to help steer them on their life’s journey.
Initiated as a Reiki Master I wish to impart the wisdom to others and hold a space for those wishing to discover their own healing gifts.
