My latest article is up with Rebelle Society! This is in honour of my Reiki teacher, giving back the love she gave me. Joanna Lewins really inspired me and my training with her was not part of my original plans, it just magically happened. She, by chance happened to be in Bali the same time as me and was offering a last minute reiki level 2 round the corner from where I was staying and on the day I was meant to fly back to the U.K. the decision to follow my heart and intuition changed my life AND changed how I view life. If I had not followed my heart I’d have been back in the Uk earlier, not gone to Australia and not gone on to become a reiki master teacher and not gone on to develop a passion in researching more about shamanism, ancient priestesses and mysticism. Jo is one of three teachers who’ve inspired my path. This woman is utterly wonderful and I consider her a mermaid soul sister
“When one is attuned into the Reiki lineage, it’s like receiving a beautiful blessing from above, and is done as a short and sacred ritual that stays with you for life. It really is a gift. To be able to tune into this infinite source, to be able to give yourself hands on healing, is truly one of the greatest things you can do for yourself. It allows you to open up as a channel to receive the light to move through you, and ignites your soul. When you work with your energy body, you’re tapping in on a cellular level, that also influences your physical, mental, emotional and spiritual bodies, so it’s all encompassing and connected. It doesn’t take much to have a deeply powerful experience. Yummy, right?” ~ Joanna Lewins, Reiki Master Teacher

Following the path of Reiki was not something I purposefully pushed for, it kind of just happened and it seems like the more I surrender to the universe and live in the present moment, unexpected and good things have happened to me. This new found practice stems from leaving my ex partner and my life with him in Plymouth, UK. The moment I left everything behind, it felt like I had set sail. Before I knew it I had booked my place on two trainings in Bali I wanted to do and from this balance of desire for what I want and surrender to the big cosmic flow, good people and good moments have been popping into my life like daisies. Things are just happening for me!
My Reiki level one attunment was actually more of a rebellion from my ex. I had just completed a day course in Indian Head Massage to test the waters and to get me on that holistic path. I knew my end goal was to attend a yoga teacher training and I was going to weekly yoga class for two years; but I needed smaller pockets of continuing professional development in the meantime. Indian Head Massage was the first and Reiki level one was the second. All my Reiki attunements have two things in common: One being they happened magically and two being that all have been facilitated by women.
