My Journey

Yvonne's Reiki Journey!

Yvonne has experienced great loss in her life, in the form of the death of her two sons at the ages of 7 and 9, through a genetic disorder.

She says, ”Support groups, returning to work, personal development courses and meditation all did help to begin to fill the vacuum left by the loss of the boys. A turning point came in 2007 when I attended a mind power training course and received a blessing that was referred to as a form of Reiki. My experience with the Giver placing the hands on my crown was overwhelming. A surge of uncontrollable tears came over me, unleashing locked up grief and sadness.”

Following this experience, Yvonne attended a Reiki seminar and was initiated in the Usui Shiki Ryoho form of practice, saying, “I found Reiki to be very comforting and healing. New confidence and directions seem to open up for me. My wish was then to pursue a path in Reiki and to share this healing gift with family, friends and the community.”

In November 2010, she was drawn to re-sit the levels of her Reiki training in the Japanese tradition of "Usui Reiki Ryoho" ("Usui Spiritual Energy Healing Method").

Yvonne has now Reiki Master certification in the lineages of Gendai Reiki Ho, Komyo Reiki Kai, Usui Reiki Ryoho and Usui Holy Fire Karuna.

Yvonne regularly facilitates Reiki workshops in the four levels of Reiki training: Level 1 Sho-den (first teachings), Level 2-Okuden (deeper teachings), Level 3-Shinpiden (teaching of the mysteries) and Level 4-Okukaiden (Master/Facilitator).

Yvonne is the owner of Waves of Energy; a current Reiki Australia® Board Director and member of Reiki Australia’s Accredited Reiki Treatment Practitioner membership category. You can be assured of receiving the highest level of ethical and professional care.
