“Prana is more powerful than just about anything – food, exercise, skin creams, and Spanx.” – Danielle LaPorte
I’ve taught workshops on nutrition, weight loss, and getting your “body back”.
I teach Yoga. I teach Zumba. I’ve taught a variety of different fitness classes throughout the years . . .
And I, myself, have tried numerous
diets styles of eating, and believe it or not, I actually work out for fun (ask me how; hint: ZUMBA!).
I. Will. Try. Anything. Seriously. And I have, trust me. Those books? I’ve read them all.
I’ve gained weight, and I’ve lost weight; I’ve been fit, I’ve been unfit and overweight, and I’ve even overcome that to become fit and healthy once again.
And if there is one thing I know for sure, it’s that the only thing that matters is ENERGY.
The truth? What you’re eating or not eating doesn’t really matter. The kind of workout that you do is actually irrelevant. And the Arbonne vs Clinique debate is a moot point.
It’s not that those things aren’t important, because they are. They really, really, really are. It’s just that unless your energy is stable and your chakras are balanced, all of your surface efforts are simply taking you one step forward and two steps back.
What if you could finally be calm?
What if you could see clearly?
What if your truth was so palpable and loud that you had no choice but to follow it down the path leading to your heart’s desire . . . Even if that meant walking through hell and back?
Your body is intelligent. Your body knows what to do. You know what you want – to eat, to do, to enjoy.
Your body’s natural state is one of equilibrium; left to its own devices, it will find a perfect state of health that supports the lifestyle that you’re currently living.
The hallmarks of true health – vigour, happiness, resilience, freedom (both physical and mental), sharpness . . . These are just a few of the rewards of a regular, energy healing practice.
Reiki is by far the most trusted and most popular form of energy healing, because it is simple, easy to learn, and is totally free of any side effects.
Reiki means “universal life force energy”, and is a pure, healing energy that balances the body on both the physical and energetic planes. If you’re tired, Reiki will give you energy; if you’re anxious, Reiki will relax you.
Not too long ago, everything just clicked. I, of course, think that I could stand to lose a few pounds (I know from a logical standpoint that I don’t need to lose any weight, but bear with me). I’d love to be way fitter than I am now, and so much more ripped. I want people to see the muscle striations of my shoulders through long sleeved shirts . . . Anyway. *ahem*
I realized that nothing was ever really going to change until I changed from a deeper level. That I could trick myself into thinking that I enjoy some hellish way of eating and some barbaric workout routine (both highly endorsed by pros and celebs alike) for a short period of time . . . But then I would just lash out and everything would go back to the way things were, if not a little more screwy every. Single. Time.
Reiki has given me peace at the height of my anxiety. Reiki has allowed me to see through my mental fog. Reiki helps me realize when I’m hungry and when I’m full.
Reiki is helping me to learn how to trust my body.
Reiki soothes my tired and sore muscles after a wicked workout. Reiki has saved me from many stress eating episodes . . . And when it is appropriate to eat, Reiki blesses and empowers my food, whatever it is.
You need to know that I know that it really is ultimately about energy.
And that while I humbly prostrate myself at the feet of the wellness industry, and will continue to be an advocate and voice for nutrition, fitness, and healthy living, the one thing that tied it all together for me is energy work through meditation, crystal healing, and Reiki.
I like to think of energy healing as a key that unlocks everything – all of our efforts – and finally makes everything work the way it should.
So if you’re wondering why, despite my many healthy living practices, I am so obsessed with energy healing and Reiki, this is why.
Reiki works, and it will meet you where you are.
