 Meet Natalie of Light of Wellness!

To me, not only is she an incredible mentor, friend and soulmate, but she’s also my big sister. Natalie has a long list of clients through her healing expertise involving being a Reiki Grand Master / Teacher, Seichim Reiki Master / Teacher, Karuna Practitioner, an Ascension Therapy Facilitator, Massage and Beauty Therapist. She and her mentor, Richard (Celestial Light), have helped me extensively over the past year or more to become a Reiki Practitioner myself, and heal my soul of stored emotional baggage and conditioning which was weighing down my happiness, potential and life for a number of years. One of my greatest tests and lessons in the past 10 years has been to actively listen to my intuition. For a long time I put everyone else’s needs before my own, especially whoever my boyfriend was at any time in that period. I carried everyone else’s burdens as it was obviously easier than dealing with my own unhappiness. I suppressed my own needs most often than not (with the exception to raw food in the last 4.5 years) and drove myself into Adrenal Fatigue, making myself very sick. At one point I hadn’t had a menstrual cycle for 2+ years. I did a lot of work on myself mentally and physically with another mentor in Singapore to heal from the depths of Adrenal Fatigue and get my body working as it should. I came back to work with Light of Wellness using the powerful process she uses which is Ascension Therapy. I honestly now look at and feel the world in a completely different way from the work I’ve done with these people. Ascension Therapy helped me open up my intuition to a whole other level and understand what being ‘connected’ really is. Connected to myself, to other beings, the greater energy around me, and nature/ the Earth. It’s incomprehensible our body’s innate wisdom. All it ever wants to do is heal itself. When you give it the right tools to facilitate this healing, it’s incredible the power it holds. As I mentioned, I’ve been attuned to Usui Reiki and now have clients myself as a practitioner of the healing method. Reiki has been and continues to be a pivotal part of my journey to enlightenment and daily healing.

So what actually is Reiki you ask? Let’s demystify it.

Reiki (pronounced Ray-Key) 

“Universal Life Force Energy”

Reiki (pronounced Ray-Key) in the West is most commonly understood as a holistic healing method for connecting universal energy with the body’s innate powers of healing.Reiki, translated means Rei “universal” Ki “life force energy”. Many cultures and religions have been aware of the existence of this energy and have different names for it. Chi or Qi – by the Chinese
, Prana – by the Hindus
, Kabbalists 
Mana – by the Huna in Hawaii, Fluid of Life – by the Alchemists, are all describing the same energy field that connects all living things.When this energy is flowing freely, you feel alive, you have an enthusiasm for life and an abundance of energy. When this energy is blocked in your body, you feel drained, unmotivated, and may even experience a variety of aches and pains or other physical challenges.The main purpose of Reiki as a healing modality is to allow for this Universal Life force Energy to flow freely through your body, clearing the flow through the bodies energy centers (known as Chakras) is instrumental in allowing the body to heal itself.

There are many forms of Reiki; one of them is listed here. What is most important to know is that, they all practice the giving of love energy, derived from the universal life energy or source, some may call it God. The Reiki practitioner is a channel for that energy, they are not healing you, you are healing yourself and they are facilitating the most optimal environment for that to occur.

“My vision for the future is to create a world

where love and respect is the main focus,

where we are all becoming aware of our connection

to our inner light (source) and in turn gaining

control of our own lives and existence”
