Usui Holy Fire Reiki First and Second Degree. Chakra Dance Facilitator. Laugha Yoga Instructor. Teacher. Artist. Mama. Awaken: Richmond

Deep Peace of our Mother Earth to you! Richmond blesses us with the gifts of our river and her woods. From this life: these trees, the greens of eternal seasons, the sound of new life growing through ice, all of her creatures, the beautiful mud, and sky and all between and beneath - from here flows my energy - the light, love, and life of healing Reiki energy. Mahalo. After receiving Reiki, a woman described a most eloquent image, that my hands on her eyes were like looking through woven branches and that my body had become one with the trees behind me. Come and feel the deepest peace that allows you to breathe gratitude and joy and pleasure for all the gifts that are you. Reiki energy makes mighty your deepest peace and tends to all dis ease on every level - from physical to spiritual. The vibration of this peace and light within you will continue to heal and all subsequent Reiki sessions will bring you deeper into this light and healing. Reiki is the divine art of inviting happiness. 'Tis for children too! Thank you, for finding the Awaken Collective!
