My Reiki journey officially started in April and by September 2017 I had already gotten my Level 3 Reiki Master. I had no idea at the time why I felt such an intense draw to get all of my levels, a week after level 1 I had already reached out to my mentor asking for level 2.

It was late September 2016, I was 4 months into the most traumatic experience I’d had in decades, beating myself up for the decisions I’d made, scared for my girls, angry that my career was basically over and just filled with rage at the turn my life had taken. I was sitting on my back deck
