How I got Started

Hello! Thanks for visiting my website. Here is a little about me and how I discovered Reiki.

I had been working in the medical field for 17 years, the last 9 years I was in Alaska working in a remote village operating a clinic on my own. It was a special program unique to Alaska. It was a family practice/urgent care and I wore all the hats from front office to pharmacy to lab to being the medical provider. It was through the Native American Corporation that I was given special training and I always had a doctor that I called to report to and give me direction. It was an amazing experience and I learned a lot! I have always felt a pull to helping people but it was definitely taking a toll on me. I was finally able to hire a receptionist my last year to help me keep up with demand, and it was just at the right time. She was instrumental in the start of my healing journey.

I had become very sick. I had random rashes popping up, swollen legs, my stomach hurt every time I ate, trouble breathing, and the list goes on. I had been to see 5 different doctors and all ran tests and told me they could not find anything wrong. It was my new receptionist that "forced" me to go see a Naturopathic Doctor, who changed my life. He explained that I was in "fight or Flight" mode and after numerous questions found out that I had probably been in "fight or flight" most of my life and now it was catching up to me physically. He introduced me to meditation and soon after I discovered Reiki.

I had never heard of Reiki before but scrolling through social media it hit me right in the face. I got full body chills and started to cry. I thought "What is this?" and "How can I get more!" I researched and read and I was very drawn to it. I realized that I had been using my energy and reading energy all my life without knowing what it was I was doing. The medical world always seemed to fit me and I was very good with patients and could tell what was wrong at work and also in my personal life without asking too many questions. I always thought I was just...weird. I knew then that Reiki was my calling and started changing and putting things into place to get started with classes.

My family and I moved to Idaho where we are closer to family and there is a bigger Reiki community. My hope is to bring Reiki to as many people as I can. I have suffered through many traumas and challenges in my life and I feel like I can relate to most people and I just want to help everyone find peace.

Shining Light

Ok so in my last post I talked about how YOU control your light you shine, but speaking from experience I know that's not always easy. Its not like we have a switch to turn on and off. Well, I believe

Scientifically we are all electrical beings. Our bodies function with electrical impulses throughout our bodies to think, to move, to feel, etc. Basically we are squishy computers walking around. So I
