I returned to Andrea’s home for my first Reiki Session the following week. She brought me into the old barn, the same place where she sold her herbs. I believe her table was an old door with blankets on it, nothing fancy here. My healing on a mental, physical, emotional and spiritual journey began. This is what I had been searching for. I found that inner peace that I had been looking for all my life.
In 1998, I was ready to take on the responsibility of a Reiki practitioner. Andrea introduced me to Ellen who became my initiating Reiki Master for Level 1 and Level 2. Ellen always told her students: “ To Trust Reiki “ and to “Let Reiki Teach You”.
I was on the right path now and my inner peace turned into excitement. I was truly on the path of my Soul’s Journey.
My interest continued to grow and over the years I have become a Reiki Master in the Usui, Karuna®, Gendai Ho, Seichim, and Sacred Flame methods of healing energies. In the year 2002, I became a board director for the Canadian Reiki Association and in 2004 was appointed President of our Association. We are an association that provides our members with a national voice; encourages high educational standards; promotes ethical practices and teaching; and also assists the public with referrals to Registered Practitioners and Teachers. I expanded my interests and obtained a Level 2 certificate in Therapeutic Touch. Then with the Ontario College of Reflexology, in 2002, I became certified as a Foot Reflexologist Practitioner. In 2004, I earned my certification as a Teacher with the College. Finally in 2005, I became certified as a Hand Reflexologist Practitioner.
It was in November 2007 at the Toronto Whole Life Expo where I had a conversation with two members of the Canadian Reiki Association. They mentioned the Bio Mat and they were using it in their practice. My curiosity was tweaked and I made note to do a Google search when the show was over. Shortly after this conversation I was surprised to see an Amethyst Bio Mat Booth at the Whole Life Expo. Distributors were demonstrating the mat to the public but I had only a few moments to listen to some of the healing benefits of the mat. It was the next day when I really needed to experience the mat for myself. I was exhausted and dehydrated from the long hours at the show. What an experience it was. In a very short period of time I felt totally different. It felt like someone flipped a switch from off to on. It was that dramatic for me. I ordered my mat the next day along with the distributorship package and I have not looked back or regretted my decision. I am thrilled that I can include the Amethyst Bio Mat for all treatments I perform at Soul’s Journey.
My journey continues…
