A Little About Me
I started my work life as a typist, and within weeks rose to the position of Secretary to the Contracts Manager, before becoming Secretary to the Legal Manager of the company. After then giving this up to raise my 2 children, I later ran my own business for a decade, ‘Kids Corner Playgroup’. Then I needed something different and found another job I loved, Attendance Manager at a high school, I stayed for 5 years, I gave this up to take care of my two beautiful dogs, and a year or two later, I finally found my true purpose in life, becoming a Reiki Practitioner and Teacher. I began training in 2006, and teaching Original/Traditional Japanese Reiki in 2013, which is when I founded ‘Relax and Heal with Reiki’. This training also includes Western Reiki; Karuna Reiki and Holy Fire III.
I have studied and trained in Mindfulness practices in the style of Jon Kabab-Zinn – ‘Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction’ and Thich Nhat Hanh style of teachings through ‘The Community of Interbeing’ UK. Mindfulness plays a large role in Usui’s Original system of Reiki.
My intention was always to keep as close as possible to the original system of Usui Reiki Ryoho, as originally taught by Mikao Usui. Sharing the simple practices of Reiki, so that others may learn how to heal themselves, transform their lives, finding their peace within.
Whilst the majority of my time is taken up with teaching, and supporting family; we have several excellent Local Reiki Practitioners, who have trained with myself to a high standard, and each is more than happy to support you in a one-to-one healing session. You can find them under the 'Local Practitioner' tab above.
When I started to suffer with my own ill health; IBS, arthritus, rhinitus, sinusitis, ashma, a bad back, sciatica and neck problems, and I started booking Dr's appointments and Physio's, it was then that ‘my mum’ asked me why I wasn’t Reikiing myself ... I had simply forgotten all about it. She inspired me to start researching Reiki again, feeling there must be more to this than I found previously. Since then I have found out so much more than I knew in 2004 about Reiki and its possibilities. Understanding the ‘Byosen’ now all makes so much more sense and this is thanks to the pioneering work of Frank Arjava Petter (website Reikidharma.com). Now, as I have worked with the energy daily for many years, and my health has improved hugely on every level, I feel even more passionate about spreading ‘Reiki’ to friends, family and beyond, as I gain a greater understanding of this remarkable energy and what it's capable of. We all have Reiki in us and it just needs awakening, the self-healing possibilities are endless. Hopefully my passion for this remarkable healing energy shines through and perhaps today I have inspired you to give it a go, have a session or get empowered, work with the energy, discover that you have your own healing ability, and not just physical, but mental, emotional and spiritual.
I would just like to finish by saying I feel completely honoured and privileged to be able to pass Reiki onto others. I have met many wonderful souls along the way, like minded, who want to understand Reiki, heal themselves and support others through healing. It is truly wonderful when someone else discovers that Reiki is very real and that they can feel the energy, and feel the health benefits and they too go on and share it. Thank you for taking the time to read this.
Love and Healing Light to you all, Natalie Xxx
