Having the experience of needing a teacher while I was going through an emotional & spiritual awakening event and seeing how powerful Reiki can be is why I started my Reiki, EFT and Meditation business. I know that if I had found a guide or mentor sooner it would have been easier for me and I would have stuck with my practice knowing that what I was experiencing was normal, and I wouldn't have been so afraid. My goal now is to help people through this fear and doubt and guide them every step of the way. Helping them find the tools they need to live a life of peace and empowerment.
My journey goes back to being a child in Northeastern Pennsylvania. I grew up in a very small town at the tippy top of PA. To get to our place you had to drive through a small town and then onto a dirt road. You went uphill for 1 mile. There you found our small crooked house that was passed down to my family from my dad's grandparents. It was a crazy looking house at that time, but it was also a magical place. It was overlooking a large pond and surrounded on all sides by forests and fields. I grew up with my sister and brother and many many cousins. We ran free all over the place and I became very in tune to nature.
As I grew up I rebelled against this place and could not wait to get out. I didn't want a small town life and I had big dreams of travel. So I went out into the big world and began learning a lot about myself. Eventually I met a guy who followed the Grateful Dead around and that is when my spiritual journey began! The Dead scene opened my mind and my heart up to so many different possibilities and ways of living. I remember being mad that nobody had ever told me that these things were going on out there!
During this time I was also struggling with addiction. Addiction to drugs, alcohol, love & Feelings of inadequacy and extreme shyness that I could only mask with substances. Of course nothing filled the huge void I felt inside. The loneliness and despair that I felt every time I was sober.
I started to dabble in meditation and reading spiritual texts during this time. There was always someone at a show with the Bhagavad Gita . I also had a very good friend who usually had some sort of book of poetry or some kind of spiritual book laying around.
Many many years later after so many incredible adventures traveling the world I found myself in the British Virgin Islands with my friend and mentor, Mike. He allowed me to come and just sit still for many months. I began to meditate for hours and read everything I could get my hands on about spirituality, religion, personal development and quantum physics and mechanics. My mind was completely blown in so many ways!
Diving in so deeply in this way without a teacher took a toll. I was having extreme rushes of energy move through me and bouts of extreme fear and sadness. Things were moving too fast and I was unsure what to do. Even Mike, who had been doing this type of work on himself for many years, was not sure what was happening and why it was happening so fast! So Mike decided to take me to see his Reiki Master.
Monali worked at a resort in the marina where Mike was a sailing instructor. I began seeing her every week, and sometimes a couple of times a week, until she was able to help stabilize my energy. She advised me to slow way down on the meditation and to start taking things easy. It felt to me like she saved my life. My moods evened out and I stopped feeling crazy. She told me that what I was experiencing was normal. Without her I'm still unsure of what would have happened to me!
I left the islands and came back home. I had been away long enough and I knew it was time to come back and begin a deep healing process with my family. That is when I met my partner Dennis. I had known his family since grade school. All I can say is that meeting put my life on a path to such deep healing and remarkable beauty. Dennis is the man of my dreams. It took coming back home to find everything I was looking for.
It is now my life's work to help others find the life they dream of having. Through 1 on 1 Reiki Energy Healing & Meditation sessions, Online EFT Tapping packages and Courses and other Online Content I am here to be your guide and mentor.
As we walk together as friends on the road of life, I get a feeling in my heart that everything is OK. I am so happy that I have your friendship. It helps me let go of so many fears when you are by my side. ~yourfates.com
