After going for 6 hours, almost nonstop, giving Reiki to more than 12 clients, you’d think I would have been exhausted. In fact, I was invigorated and inspired.

It was such an honor to be a part of Circuit Healing Day on Monday, founded and created by Anna Naturalista – a force of a woman on a quest to heal the world, one person at a time.

Custom-made day

Held at a beautiful estate in Rancho Santa Fe, Circuit Healing Day served as a specialized, custom-made “spa” day for each participant. As they arrived and registered, their needs were assessed – whether physical, mental, emotional or all.

Then they enjoyed different healing modalities, techniques, and tools throughout the day, and the estate.

Not to mention taking in incredible views, enjoying delicious healthy food, and taking a dip in the pool or jacuzzi between sessions.

Reiki is different for everybody

As they arrived in a private back room for a Reiki session with me, each client shared their own amazing story and what brought them to circuit healing day.

And, as Reiki is a universal energy, everyone responded differently to the session.

~One client felt a release in the tension of her neck.

~Another cried over missing a loved one.

~Another saw angels all around her.

Most comments I received included, “that was wonderful” and “I am so relaxed.”

Receiving Reiki might elicit a feeling or experience that can be challenging to articulate. Most importantly, it is an opportunity for the body to relax and receive an energy that is universal and healing.

What does Reiki have to do with it?

So, what is an officiant doing practicing Reiki? What does that have to do with wedding ceremonies and baby blessings?

Well, in a word, everything.

To me healing energy and Reiki – *spiritually guided life force energy- is the “connective tissue” to all that I do. Honoring the sacred in everything, whether is it officiating a wedding ceremony, performing a baby blessing, facilitating a memorial service.

It is showing up with the understanding that there is so much more at work than just me.


*The word Reiki is composed of two Japanese words:  
~Rei which means “God’s Wisdom” or “the Higher Power”
~Ki which is “life force energy”
So Reiki is actually “spiritually guided life force energy”

On Sunday I joined fellow Reiki Masters and practitioners on a group field trip to a very special property in Ramona, California. It is a land of labyrinths. The property owners have dedicated their lives to collecting rocks, gems, and crystals and created five unique labyrinths. Each one is designated and designed in such a way to enhance a particular experience.

One beauiful labyrinth is made completely of crystals, another labyrinth was created to focus on inner

Peace, one for the Heart, one for Prosperity, and the largest crafted after the famous Chartres labyrinth.

For so many people, and in particular many of my wedding clients who are trying to navigate what it means to be spiritual not religious,’ the labyrinth can be a lovely tool to assist you in experiencing that direct connection with the Divine.

A labyrinth can help solve problems when you enter with a particular question, invoke an experience of the sacred, or simply bring a sense of peace.

When people describe themselves as ‘spiritual not religious, I believe what they are trying to say is that the “reiigious” feels like a predetermined structure and set of rules to abide by; while the “spiritual” is the seeking of that specific set of tools that speaks uniquely to you, designed to transport you to your own direct connection with the Divine.

Happy meandering. . .
