When I started my formal Reiki training in October of 2017, many of my close family and friends were confused. They didn’t understand “where” this was coming from. What I had kept quiet for years and stuffed away was this burning knowledge, that I was meant to do more with my life.

I was 7 when my Grandma; Super Gran as she was affectionally referred to by us kids; taught me to use the energy in my hands to help with my growing pains. She eventually became tired of coming over and decided teaching me to help myself was a better idea.

Once I mastered this new skill, it quickly became that “thing” I did for friends at sleepovers that would put them all to sleep. My teen years were a blur of drugs and rebellion against my parents. Moving away at the age of 16 cause I thought I “knew” what was best for me. A Mother by the time I was 23 and the knowledge of energy work had been pushed so far back in the memory it wasn’t even a faint thought anymore.

Fast forward to 2017…

I had quietly been looking at things like crystals (we always had “rocks” in the house as a kid), tarot and moon cycles. One weekend my closest friend and I had decided that we would go for a quick overnight backpack hike into a waterfall and try putting into practice some of these things I had been learning. We never made it to that camp spot that night. Instead we were graced with the presence of a large male Grizzly bear. This experience would change the course of my life drastically.

The Bear was in September 2017, by October I was taking my Usui Reiki Level 1 & 2 training. I started taking time for myself. To gather with other women, to heal old wounds I had buried deep within. I continued my education and over the last 3 years I have become a Certified Crystal Healer, Akashic Record reader and soon to be a Reiki Teacher and Meditation teacher.

I will be forever grateful for that Grizzly Bear who decided to show up and remind me who I was on the inside. Never apologize for doing the things that make your heart sing.

I love what I do now and who I am becoming.
