I have been a seeker. Curious about who I am, what I am and how to live this life as me. This meant peeling off layers of what I was not and who I was not, realizing that I have carried many energies other than my own. This has been a process of claiming myself, calling back all of my own parts and pieces.
I am an Intuitive Chanell, an Artist, a Reiki Master teacher, an Art Educator.
I have been certified in Dahn Yoga, Hypnotherapy, Angel Card Readings and Akashic Record Readings, through Coaching programs and various Spirit based programs. I continue to pursue my interest in learning more about energy healing, breath work and facilitated healing and shamanism.
My pursuit of alternative approaches to healing began with my own personal healing journey when I left home for the first time to attend college. I discovered much more about life when a friend from high school had taken his own life. This led me to ask some tough questions and I began seeking, researching and uncovering some of the factors involved in my own traumas.
Around that time I made another discovery. My father had had horrible back problems that left him walking with a cane in his early 40s. I tended to him and helped take care of him by massaging and rubbing out the areas of pain.. He was astounded that I knew where his pain was before he had told me. My hands led me there. This was my first experience of my just "knowing" where to heal or experiencing "intuitive hands".
When I heard about Reiki through a friend during my college years, I knew that it was something I needed to learn. I received all 3 levels of Reiki between 1997- 1999. While it led me to my own healing, it opened up something in me that created a burning desire to share this gift. I also use absentia (distance) healing, where I can send someone, a situation or an animal, healing energy from a distance.
I believe my personal journey of healing will inform those seeking their own growth and healing and bring awareness, clarity and strength to the process of healing.
My desire is to be a sincere healer and a guiding mentor. My intention is to help others feel their own inner light - their own beating heart - to feel the moment, to breathe and to know their effect, their importance, their purpose, and self-worth to help be a guide to self-realization, to releasing who you are not and get to the gem that you are! Gently, lovingly, with some mirroring and nudges, accountability and love, you'll get there if you're willing to do some work!
