Happy New Year everyone! This year is slated to be a year of growth for me, I’ve decided. Involved in this growth is an expansion of my website, where I now offer Usui Reiki attunements for those interested in learning the “original” form of Reiki healing. I also changed the Energy Healing Mentoring Program into […]

Alice’s Awakening

People often ask me how I got here, how I became a passionate Reiki teacher. Here’s the story, and links to a number of posts written at the time of the events I’ve described here. Please enjoy. When I was a kid, I wanted to feel special. Doesn’t everyone want to feel special, endowed with […]

The Rosy Glasses

Had an interesting lesson on perspective this week from my friend David. He started the conversation by congratulating me on my husband’s job situation. My first thought was that he’d missed the memo – didn’t realize that my husband is looking for work after being laid off recently from his job at MetroHealth. So I […]

Religion, Spirituality and Reiki

This week, I’ve been thinking about the ideas of faith, belief and spirituality. These thoughts usually come up for me when I’m at services. Rarely do formal worship services resonate with me, although I sometimes have to go and participate with the family. Friday night was one of those times. As I do when I’m […]

Here’s why: the blog was getting to be too many things, with all of the attunements and products along the right column and integrated in posts, and the blog posts […]

This has been a very eventful and enlightening year of self discovery, sharing, healing, and leaps of faith. I’ve met amazing people, shared healings, attunements, guidance, learning and […]

Emerging into the Light

Hello!First, I’m feeling better from my “Spiritual Upgrade“ I wrote about last week. Funny how I know it’s over – I do feel lighter and more clear-headed. Also, when I drive, the yellow line in the middle of the road has a big blue aura around it – lol! I notice that and realize I’m […]

Reiki Retreat This Weekend!

Hello friends! Tomorrow morning through Sunday afternoon I will be away from my computer (gasp!) in a nature reserve with 14 Reiki practitioners and Reiki Masters, learning, sharing Reiki with each other, and connecting with nature. Woo-hoo, I am so excited! And look what I made to bring with me: What do you think? I’ll […]

The Mind-Body-Spirit Connection

We’re still surrounded by mounds of snow here, but seem to have dug enough pathways to get to and from where we need to go, so that’s progress for you.Meanwhile, I want to report that I had a great meeting last night with a really wonderful Reiki person. We are exploring the possibilities of working […]
