Just like you, my life has been filled with
glorious victories and defeats, challenges that pushed me into new thoughts,
and limiting beliefs that have kept me from standing in the fullness of my
light. It's an essential part of 'being human'! As my life unfolds with new
challenges and experiences, I have learned to embrace them and learn from
them. That doesn't mean I don't get frustrated, or angry or confused. We are
meant to experience the full spectrum of emotions, appreciating the ones we
like and learning more from the ones we don't. So I see myself as one whose
experiences can be valuable in helping others through their challenges. I
see myself as the headlights on your car, to help you see your way down your
own path. Through this collaboration, we both shine brighter and stronger.
Growing up in rural Kentucky, I first met the
opposition when I announced that I was going to be a doctor."No, little
girls become nursed not doctors", I was told. I didn't believe them, but I
didn't argue. I knew I was meant to be a healer. While in pre-med school at
Vanderbilt University, I was distracted by another passion, theatre and
acting. This 90 degree shift led into a wonderful adventure, co-owning at
Dinner Theatre in Nashville, TN with my first husband, and becoming a mother
to his three children. I learned so much and grew to love everyone but
The day I turned 50 was another great shift in my life.
I reconnected with my first love in High School, found Reiki, moved to
Charleston and begin to reconnect with myself. It has been nothing short of
a miracle in my eyes.
When I found Laurelle Gaia through the International
Center for Reiki (www.reiki.org), I felt a kindred spirit. She has been my
Reiki Master from Reiki I & II in Myrtle Beach in 2001, Reiki Master Level
in 2002, Karuna Reiki in 2004, and now my mentor in the International
Center's Teachers Program, to be completed in June 2008.
My husband (and love of my life) and I meld my
Reiki practice with our Bed & Breakfast in Summerville. Ken is also a Reiki
Master. Ken brings a 'technical' approach and I offer a 'feel' approach,
complimenting each other in how we introduce others to Reiki. With Ken's
Captain's license, we hope to expand our businesses to offer sailing, water
adventures in the near future.
