A little about me.
I was brought up in Manchester, the only girl in a family of six children, and being the eldest I had a major role in the family. My five younger brothers were quite a handful. I had to help mum as much as possible. Our parents did their best to keep us all happy, and fed.
As the song says “what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger” and that I can say is so very true.
I now have five children of my own, all grown up, and I have nine amazing grandchildren. We are all very close and spend as much time as we can together.
I had always felt a strong connection to spirituality, my father was a local Guru of sorts in his 30’s and 40’s he would advise and mentor friends and family through tough times and always had a positive outlook on life. I gained a lot of insight from listening to his conversations.
I made my own divine connection quite early in life, but didn’t really know what to do with it. I could sense things, and had a deep understanding and inquisitive mind. This carried on throughout the ensuing years. I never really knew what to do with my own understanding? becoming a young adult I wanted to get a job and have fun with my friends. There wasn’t much time for spiritual activities and so they were at that time left but not forgotten.
I married and started my own family here in the south, my husband and I had difficult times and good times, but eventually we divorced, and I was left to raise our children alone.
Once the children were in school I began my journey into studying and achieved amongst other qualifications a HND in art and design.
Later I began working for lloyds banking group. One day at work a colleague complained of neck and shoulder pain so I asked her if she would like me to give her a gentle massage as she sat at her desk. I placed my hands on my colleagues shoulders, and instantly started to feel a heat coming from my hands, it felt as though I was drawing out the pain and stress, I would shake this heat off my hands when they got too hot and continue healing.
The effects were lasting for months, the ailments ranged from neck, shoulder and back pain to migraines and depression.
At that time I did not know I was feeling Reiki, but I did know that it was helping people.
I began to investigate the energy, and came across Usui Reiki. I made contact with a Reiki master and told her about the heat and what had been happening. After our conversation I decided to study Reiki and booked myself onto the next available course.
During my first attunements to Reiki level 1, my Reiki master told me, I was so unbelievably ready for this work. I felt that too, as though I had actually found where I belonged. I studied Reiki for over 2 years, gaining Reiki practitioner and Reiki master teacher levels in Usui Reiki.
I left my office job in February in 2014 to pursue a new career as a Reiki Practitioner and master teacher, this is now my life work and it gives me so much joy and happiness, whilst helping others. I can truly say I love my job and my life. The knowledge, understanding and spiritual connection was back in full force, this is definitely what I am meant to be doing with my life.
