I started working as a freelance therapist in 1990 utilising Reiki, the Metamorphic Technique and Aromatherapy. The journey has taken me through a wonderful labyrinth of learning. I studied Reiki with Lucy Reed doing Levels 1 and 2. I then became a master student for 10 years with Phyllis Furumoto, working with Phyllis in Australia, Europe and the United Kingdom. I feel blessed to have met, studied and worked with some amazing people. I also have had the precious gift of 5 wonderful children and thus far welcomed 5 beautiful grandchildren into the world.
For the first 5 years as a freelance therapist I treated severely mentally and physically disabled children and young adults with Reiki. They were my greatest teachers. With no verbal communication, “one had to feel, working on a purely energetic and intuitive basis”. It really was a case of letting your instincts, self- awareness and intuition become your real guide. This proved to be the strongest of foundations upon which I have built my working life.
I have travelled widely practising my arts, conducting workshops and working with the earth’s energy. This has taken me throughout the UK, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, Mexico, Canada and the USA.
My ten day trek in 2004 to Machu Picchu for St. Luke’s Hospital Guildford, took me at times to my physical limits but the gain was enormous on a mental, emotional, physical and spiritual level. I can liken this to my own life’s journey. The extra climb to the Moon Temple was without doubt worth every extra step. As I stood on the edge of the Moon Temple and looked out at this most breath taking view, I felt a deep and inner gratitude for what this challenge had brought me and I sent out a prayer of peace and harmony to the world. Machu Picchu and Peru will always hold a very special place in my heart.
In February 2014 I visited Mexico and Guatemala for the first time, the sacred land of the Maya. Through visiting and doing ceremony in the incredible sacred sites of Tikal and Palenque on the Wisdom of the Stars Journey, I formed a strong connection to these lands, sites and the sacred Mayan teachings.
This awe inspiring journey of self- awareness has been full of synchronicities and “co-incidences”.
We never stop learning and growing and I look forward to the coming years full of enthusiasm and an unwavering passion for life.
Remember: “ Angels can fly because they take themselves lightly”.
So, walk gentle on the earth and be gentle with yourself. Smile, Love and Be Loved.
