Nadia came to me by way of a dear friend who is suffering from the neurological horror of ME/CFS in Northern California. When I lived in the Bay Area, I'd visit to give her occasional Reiki treatments, and Nadia was the only one of her four cats who helped me.
I had one client who complained of "Voo-Doo" curses that she said made her left arm tingle when "they" were "attacking." After one session, she told me the tingling went away when Nadia laid against it.
I've been practicing Reiki for nearly 30 years (starting with certification at the now-extinct Los Angeles Reiki Center with Usui Reiki Master Joyce Morris back in the Day), and now teaching it for the past 4 years with all the remarkable results that happen when we give and receive this mysterious energetic healing.
Frankly I've resisted "going public" with a blog about my work for fear of losing my "street cred." As you can see by my Blogger Profile Summary, I'm a woman of widespread talents and endeavors, some more woo-woo than others.
Like those eateries that proclaim "We only do hamburgers," there are some folks who assume that if a Reiki Master/Teacher has other non-healing pursuits and interests she can't be "that good." But what does the ability to receive and send transformative energy have to do with whether or not you do Reiki and only Reiki?
Okay, yes it is true that working with energy is like exercising a muscle. The more we access it and let it flow through us to others, whether via Reiki or Kundalini shaktipat, the stronger it gets. However...when it comes to multitalents, Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you "Exhibit A":
Nadia. This cat knows exactly where to place her body or paws in exactly the right position to take away stress and balance a chakra, but she will still chase a string around the room pretending it's a mouse. And she's just as good at both.
I rest my case.
