What inspired you to become a healer and how did you get started with Tarot and Distance Reiki?
Energy healing has always been a part of my story and it may have saved a close family member’s life.
One of my closest family members practices energy healing they simply call “Energy Work”. Before I was born, they studied it in a class and then became part of a “healing group” that came together regularly to do energy healing on each other. This family member and the other members of the group also created “healing lists” that they used for distance energy healing. This distance healing lists are what may have saved this family member’s partner’s life.
One day, their partner suffered a traumatic brain injury and the doctors did not think they would ever recover from a coma. My family member contacted members of the energy healing group, who in turn contacted others, and their partner was sent distance healing by many energy healers. Their partner made a miraculous recovery that amazed the doctors and my family member has continued to use energy healing ever since.
When I was a child, I spent a lot of time with the family member who does the energy work. During our time together, they frequently gave me energy healing treatments and these were special moments for me. We had a very close relationship and we also collected interesting crystal tumbles, meditated and chanted together. This family member also taught me a little about astrology and numerology and often encouraged me to pull an oracle card for the day.
I found energy healing again when, as an adult, when I was browsing a metaphysical shop and I found the business card of a Reiki Master. I started receiving treatments from them and I found that Reiki made me feel very relaxed and at peace and the Reiki Master helped me consider the possible energy and emotion-related causes of my physical and mental symptoms. I had an interest in learning more about Reiki myself but training with this particular master didn’t happen to work out and I eventually moved to another town.
About a year later, I started receiving more signs that I should learn Reiki. One day, I attended a metaphysical fair and received a tarot reading. The reader told me I was going to “go to night school or something” and then “do something I loved” on nights and weekends and that it would be “something that would physically help people like massage, Reiki, aesthetics or occupational therapy.” About a month later, I received a mini Vedic Astrology reading and the astrologer told me I had “hands that heal”. Within a few months, I found a Reiki training that worked with my schedule and I became a Reiki Master.
During this time, as I was learning more about myself through spiritual readings, experiences and study, I also taught myself how to read tarot. It felt like another natural way to use my intuition and my desire to help and heal others and expand upon my personal oracle card reading practice.
What type of services do you offer?
I currently offer 1-on-1 Distance Reiki healing via Zoom. I offer tarot and oracle readings both via zoom or pre-recorded video and I enjoy crafting special offers as I am inspired to do so. For example, I currently offer a written reading titled “Love Letter From the Universe” and, in the new year, I offer a special “Year Ahead”-style reading in the form of a year’s worth of custom phone wallpapers that features a tarot card and affirmation for the month..
How do you approach working with clients who are skeptical of alternative forms of healing like Tarot and Reiki?
I do not expect everyone to be open to alternative forms of self-healing, self-reflection and I respect that. My goal is to help the people who are open to seeking a holistic approach to well-being increase their self-love and self-compassion, get relief from persistent negative thoughts and feelings, rest and recover and feel more peace and less worry. I welcome people who are skeptical to experience energy healing or card reading and form their own opinion on it based on their personal experience. I share about my own experiences with energy healing and tarot and I have testimonials from people I have sent distance Reiki to and read tarot for, but people ultimately need to experience Reiki and Tarot and decide for themselves if it adds value to their lives.
Can you share an example of a particularly powerful or transformative healing experience you’ve had with a client using Tarot and Distance Reiki?
At the end of a Distance Reiki treatment I performed on a crystal healer and intuitive, they told me they could feel the energy moving through their body and were able to name the different parts of their body in the order I had worked on them. This isn’t what everyone should expect, but there have been multiple times that I am amazed by how much others who are in tune with feeling life force energy are able to really feel their Reiki treatment, even over a great distance. Other clients have explained their experience with Distance Reiki as “relaxing” and “peaceful” and report feeling happier, less anxious and having better quality sleep.
Can you share some tips for people who are interested in practicing Tarot or Reiki for themselves? What resources or practices would you recommend?
If you are interested in practicing Reiki or other energy work, I suggest you book yourself treatments with practitioners near you and watch videos of different practitioners online. There are many different healing modalities, and even within one specific type of healing, such as Reiki, people have different styles and approaches. Figuring out whose style you are called to and whose work you admire will help you determine what kind of healer you want to be and who you would most like to learn from. If you would like to be part of a particular association, you may wish to also look into their rules before choosing your training.
If you are interested in tarot, you can learn by taking a course from a knowledgeable tarot reader or by learning through self study. There is much information to read about tarot online and many people have also created educational videos. I actually have a few videos about how to approach learning tarot as an absolute beginner.
How do you see the role of alternative forms of healing like Tarot and Reiki evolving in the future, and how do you see yourself contributing to this evolution?
The internet has given people access to a wealth of information about many different ways to heal their energy, minds and bodies, and has made it easier for people to connect with practitioners with a range of skills and expertise.
I believe people are becoming increasingly comfortable with seeking out alternative forms of healing and the idea of receiving services and treatments over the internet. As more people hear from others about the benefits they are experiencing, through word of mouth and also on social media, even more people will be seeking how to improve their well-being by incorporating Reiki, Tarot and other spiritual and magickal practices into their lives and being able to connect with someone right on their phone will make it easy to do so.
As someone who is sensitive and fairly introverted, I also understand how some people feel more comfortable receiving a healing or reading while being comfortable in their own home and I encourage my Distance Reiki clients to take advantage of the ability to be curled up on their couch or in their bed, if they feel comfortable doing so. Receiving Distance Reiki while in bed also allows you to choose to fall asleep after, which is of great benefit to people who wish to receive Reiki to help them sleep.
As I am already offering my services online and educating others about them on social media, I’m already a part of the virtual evolution and I look forward to continuing to connect with and learn alongside other healers, readers and spiritual teachers who are using technology to reach and help people all over the world.
