TESTIMONIAL FOR REIKI II WORKSHOP:
I was first introduced to Reiki by a friend about a year ago. After about a year of receiving Reiki treatments from my friend, I decided to pursue Reiki further. I received my Reiki I attunement from someone other than Grace. While I was grateful to have received my Reiki I attunement & certification, I wasn't practicing it often and just wasn't "feeling it." In the summer, fall, and winter of 2012, I experienced a succession of life-altering events. By the end of 2012, I found myself actively searching for a Reiki II teacher. My original Reiki friend suggested a couple of people, but she said that ultimately I should let myself find the person who is right for me. I took her advice, and had the great fortune of discovering Grace, not one but two times. (Divine arrows, to be sure!) When I found that she lives two blocks away from me, I took that to be the third and final sign that I was meant to find her and learn from her as I continue on my spiritual journey.
I was fortunate enough to be able to take Grace's Reiki II workshop one weekend in January of 2013. In fact, as I write this, it has only been one week since I received the Reiki II attunement. (I actually had to double check the calendar -- it feels like it's been longer than one week, as so many wonder full things have happened in such a short amount of time.) I am so grateful I allowed myself to receive it, as the benefits have been immeasurable: from more mundane gifts like a finding a perfect Reiki blanket at Wellspring ($4!! Hello!!!) and a plethora of Star Wars figures for my son (again, thank you, Wellspring!) to physical health gifts (my aforementioned son recently had strep throat, and I did NOT catch it, despite sharing drinks & food with him!) to spiritual health gifts (I have never felt more calm yet powerful IN MY LIFE). Dare I say, I even think my financial situation is starting to improve (which is something I have been struggling with for, well, 32 years or so... FYI, I'm 37!). I feel like I am beginning to shed the fear of how powerful I truly am. I am beginning to allow myself to not only manifest this power, but share it with others. ("It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us.") One of the best parts of my day is when others allow me to share this gift of Reiki healing with them, be it in person or long distance. I have been giving my son (almost) daily Reiki treatments, and he is not as quick to anger or get frustrated. He also is "using his words" much more noticeably when he does feel upset, which is something he has been struggling with ever since he learned to talk. I feel I could go on and on about the benefits I have been experiencing, they seem to keep rolling in, flowing on that Reiki energy.
Ultimately, though, I have allowed myself to become more me. (Isn't that what we are all trying to do?) And it turns out, I am really loving becoming myself. I have many things to attribute this to, but in the forefront is Grace and her work with me on that fateful January weekend. I believe -- I know -- the Reiki work I did with her helped to unlock something inside me. (This may sound cliche or corny to some of you. That's okay. I would probably think the same, had I not experienced what I did. But prove me wrong. Go see Grace and leave not feeling better. I DARE YOU.)
Grace, I can't thank you enough. And I am looking forward to working with you again -- SOON!

PS -- One of the biggest differences between Grace and my Reiki I teacher is that Grace has been following up with me after the workshop, checking in, making sure I'm okay. I echo the writings of the other testimonials on her page -- she truly cares about your well being. Not just during the workshop. Her care and healing continue well after as well. :)
