Fact #1 Reiki improves wellness for millions of people all over the world.
Fact #2 Reiki can be administered with hands positioned on, or just off the body. Reiki can be used in conjunction with massage and that's where confusion comes in. The client may lay down or sit up to receive Reiki.
Fact #3 You don't have to believe in anything mystical or religious to receive and benefit from Reiki.
Myth #1 It's like a massage.
Noooooo. Reiki is not like a massage, Reiki clients keep their clothes on, and generally just take off their shoes.
Myth #2 Reiki is some kind of religion.
Nooooo. Reiki is non-denominational. Reiki is Universal Energy (this surrounds us always), some might call that God Energy, and that's ok too if it's important to them. It is a life force energy. Ki, means energy, like Chi and Prana.
Myth #3 You have to have 'healing hands' to learn Reiki
Noooooo. You don't. Reiki is an attunement. This means you are tuned in to use it, a little like tuning a radio station.
It is not a gift, until you have it, then it becomes a gift to use and help transform wellness.
Reiki is used globally by more than 4 million people, for wellness, for stress and pain release, for rehabilitation and to make life easier. It is a respectful, non denominational method of energy transference and has origins in the primal care we have always extended to each other: love, touch, and comfort.
I run Regular Classes in Auckland and also offer booster courses online.

Did you know you could have Reiki daily, weekly, monthly - as frequently as
Reiki Sessions are a deeply nurturing, restorative experience that can be part of your holistic maintenance and pamper plan - just like a relaxing massage, regular exercise and a healthy diet.
Many of my clients get off the healing table feeling so amazing, and ask me how soon they can return, I am always mindful that I don't want to 'push' my service onto people, and so I generally let them know they can come when they want. But I have been reminded (several times in the last week) to tell you that Reiki is a part of a healthy love relationship with your body, mind and spirit, and committing to several sessions is extremely beneficial.
Bringing body, mind and spirit into balance brings all of life into balance, and a positive, liberated, empowered you is a great you for everyone. That said, I have a beautiful opportunity for you - book and pay in advance for 5 one hour Reiki Sessions, and I will give you a 6th one hour session for free. Why? Because after 5 sessions, you will not only feel lighter and more free, you will be glowing, and people will probably be asking you where you've been and what you've been up to. (Feel free to mention me!)
The added benefits from a set of sessions will speak for themselves.
When can you start? As soon as you would like to.
Sessions are paid in advance ($500) and you receive 5 vouchers on completion of your first session. For your best benefit, you are encouraged to use all six sessions, however, two of your vouchers can be gifted to friends or family if you choose.
You may pay by direct credit, cash or paypal and it's simple to book in - just phone or text me on 021 726 276.
Let's get started with your new Love Relationship!
I love working on sceptics. Healthy Sceptics who need a hand with wellness are the most AWESOME clients ever.
Shane came to me with pain in both his wrists after Carpal Tunnel operations.
He said afterwards, that his pain had been at a constant 6 out of 10, and he could kind of put up with it, BUT the reason that really propelled him along, was that his hands were closing up when he was resting. The Doctors told him 'that sometimes happens'.
His friend told him to come see me. Shane was about the most sceptic guy I knew.
He left with a 0 - thats zero pain, saying he didn't believe in it, but it worked. I didn't need him to believe in it - it was enough that he came along. I was pleased I helped him, but HUGELY dismayed thinking about all the people in the world who suffer needlessly because they don't know this healing could help them.
Healthy sceptics want to know something is going to work for them. (So do most people, right?)
Healthy sceptics are willing to try something, even though they are not sure exactly what it is - if it proves to be good for them, they are ok embracing it.
Most sceptics are in one of two boats:
1. They have not had an experience with healing, or do not know of it, or understand it.
2. They have not had an experience that was effective. Perhaps because they needed more than one treatment or did not trust the person they were working with.
The Other Sceptics: Some sceptics have a cognitive dissonance around healing. A fancy term for just not accepting something, because it would cause their whole belief system to register stress. Because we rely a lot on our world view - if we are a person who is cemented in a belief, when someone presents us with something that doesn't support our belief, we can be scared/triggered or even angry. And that's perfectly ok. This person is unlikely to present themselves for healing in the first place. Fine by me, and I mean that in a kind way - not a stick that in your pipe and smoke it way. I am here to a. bring you less stress and b. work for your money.
I'm not here to waste my time or your money talking to you if you won't/can't hear me.
That's really important.
So - first off - and I know this isn't really first because here I am down the page a way, but still - there is something to get straight here. I am, most definitely, a former sceptic. Why? I 'saw' things when I was small. BUT I was told they weren't real by other people that couldn't see them. They were wrong, and those things were real. My vision just worked slightly outside the boundaries of the 'accepted' human visionary field.
Secondly - I am a meccano, lego, engineering minded kind of fixit girl. I own more tools than many people, I can back a trailer better than many men - I like to know how things go together, and how they come apart - not necessarily in that order. I LOVE results.
So if something doesn't WORK, I am not interested - but if it works - I REALLY WANT TO KNOW.
So two things are amazing to me. One - we are all surrounded by energy that can be harnessed, we just don't tend to know how to do that for our best benefit. And Two - I can harness it - or at least direct it, and I am SO lucky because my clients give me amazing testimonies to their results - like the one below.
(And may I just say - the gentleman that gave me the testimonial below, actually cancelled TWICE before he came. He really was iffy about coming along.) He is also private about his work and personal life, but is willing to speak directly to people about the healing, if they genuinely are interested in having some.
So here is this testimonial - and I'm truly grateful for it.
Personal testimonial for Deb:
'I was extremely sceptical and cynical of anything of this nature. To me, if it couldn’t be identified, isolated, tested and re-tested using the scientific method – then it didn’t exist. My close, trusted (and similarly sceptical) friend had seen Deb and was floored by her abilities, still unconvinced – I sent my partner along and she was likewise astounded. Both of them were deeply affected by their session with Deb. Begrudgingly I made a booking and went to see what all the fuss was about. The best way I can describe my experience is: profound. Before I walked in I felt “heavy”, not a physical heaviness but a sense that I was wading through water all the time and had a great weight on my shoulders. When I left Deb after 90 minutes (was meant to be an hour but I made her keep going with the session!), I felt completely different. Lighter, somehow ‘free’ and indelibly changed in ways I’m still trying to come to terms with. I can’t begin to understand how Deb did what she did but I can attest to the fact that she can do things that defy explanation.
She knew things she shouldn’t possibly know and revealed things to me that were confronting and challenging but also uplifting, inspiring and incredibly emotional. She somehow elicits a tangible, physical change in your body without touching you? This, I cannot explain.
My experience with Deb has left me reeling and there is no doubt in my mind that I have been changed forever. I have purposely avoided emotive words like ‘miraculous’, ‘spiritual’ or ‘angelic’ but they are entirely apt ways to describe who Deb is and what she does.
Open your mind or keep it closed, it really doesn’t matter – but if you want a legitimately ‘life altering’ experience then go and see Deb.
You will leave a different person.'
This is why I love the work, and also why it's important for healers and light workers to keep sharing the possibilities with people who have never had the experiences, even though it's sometimes considered scary. Those people we work on, who are profoundly affected, share their stories bit by bit with people who trust them, and in that way, they share possibility, open eyes, ears, hearts and doors to a world of wellness that otherwise escapes people.
It's so, so important to share.
If this article helps you I'd love to know. I work all over the world, and all over the country, but there are many people in your area that also offer healing. If you are not inspired to come to me, at least keep questioning, and learning about the possibilities of healing, seek out friends who have had great local experiences and, if you need to draw the courage from them, do it, and go along to see a healer. Maybe I can even recommend one in your area.
Energy healing changes lives every day. There are more than 4 million Reiki Level One healers in the world. That's just one form of healing in a vast sea of available modalities.
What on earth would they all be doing it for if it wasn't real?
This is my client's broken - then healed, collarbone.
Nine days apart, these X-Rays show the healing journey of a young lady who (despite her expected 6 weeks + physio recovery time) was back on the netball court practising within 3 weeks, playing competitive sport in 4 weeks, and who trialled against 75 others to gain her spot in the provincial team just 7 weeks after her 'break from netball' happened.
My client gifted me her X-rays to teach students, and her mother Sue learnt Reiki to Practitioner Level to help friends, family - and you guessed it - the Netball Team!!
Reiki is for mind, body and spirit, helping to open up the energy flows in the body, it's credited with helping Hayden Roulston, one of our Kiwi athletes to recover from a life threatening chronic heart condition to cycle to Silver in the Beijing Olympics. More recently singer Christina Aguilera is reported to have praised 3 x weekly Reiki sessions for helping to put her mind in a good place and support her on an amazing 30 pound weight loss journey.
Reiki is often described as a feeling of bliss and deep peace. It's used pre-op and post-op in many hospitals around the world, and in some medical training, a Reiki Qualification can give you extra credits.
I only discovered Reiki at age 37, but gee do I love it! I'm a teacher, as well as a healer, and have more Reiki Classes coming up soon on Auckland's North Shore:
May 3rd is Reiki Practitioner Level, and May 10th is Reiki Level 1 - the Learner Healers class.
Children can learn Reiki too, and use it to help themselves and others.
Whether you are a sportsperson or not, if you are recovering from anything, or would just like to experience peace of mind and allow more wellness in your life, Reiki is a fantastic way to start.
Each persons experience is different, I have witnessed many healing miracles - and many of those happened to fairly sceptic people. You don't have to 'believe' in Reiki for it to be effective, all you need is a genuine desire for wellness. That said, it's most helpful if you just relax and go with the flow.
Clinic healings and distance healing sessions are always available - Reiki is a life changer and can be a game changer.
Will it change yours?
When I learned Reiki I was really scared. Scared I wouldn't be able to remember, scared I wouldn't be able to do it. But what happened when I stepped out of my comfort zone, was simply amazing.
After my Level 1 Reiki Class I came home, feeling a little light headed and excited, and wondering if I could 'really do it'. I slept soooo well and was looking forward to using Reiki.
I had homework, to practice Reiki on myself for 21 days - I had two young sons and was excited to use it for them too.
I was on my own, doing the lions share of parenting, and any way I could help make that easier was welcome - a well family saves stress, time and discomfort, time off work and money too. Good for me and great for my boys? Bring it on!
Unexpectedly, my chance came the following morning.
As is often the way, the boys shared a bunk bed. My older son woke up very early the following morning and uttered the words no mother wants to hear "BLEEEEAAARGH I'm gonna be SICK" As he hopped out of bed I leapt up on 'autopilot damage control mode' praying for him to avoid vomiting on the carpet... and then the weirdest thing happened.
He ran around the corner and into the bathroom, and leaned over the toilet making a huge heave noise. I was right behind him and put my hands on his back, saying "Don't be sick, don't be sick, don't be sick."
He gave another sort of half heave, breathed in and said.. "Oh, wow, that's weird. I don't feel sick anymore, in fact..... gee that's really weird." And standing up, he looked at me and then said "I'm a bit hungry. I think I will go and eat breakfast."
I watched in stunned amazement as he left the bathroom and went to the dining table. (It was CocoPops, if you're wondering.)
I was standing there wondering what happened (I was sleeping when all this started, so hadn't really got all my faculties in order) and then I realised my Reiki had switched on automatically as my hands were so hot - they felt like they were almost glowing.
My son went off to school right as rain. Amazing.
Reiki has helped my family many times since and as I became a Reiki Master/Teacher, I have been priveleged to share it with countless people.
It has definitely changed my life for the better and brought me many amazing experiences on my journey. The simplest and most graceful form of healing, anyone can learn it, as you are attuned by the Master.
My fear when I went along, was due to what I thought was a bad memory (and truckloads of low self confidence), but I was so reassured, and then I came to understand, that Reiki is a process that you learn by doing.
It's an ongoing major blessing in my life, and can be the same for you.
I'm teaching on Saturday August 9th, from 10am till 4:30pm in Mairangi Bay.
Maybe you are a healer…? How would you know?
We are all healers in some way - but some of us do resonate more with our abilities, or could do with awakening to our abilities so we can use them to enhance our lives and the lives of others.
15 Tell Tale Signs to watch out for...
When I first started my work, I was completely blind to many of my gifts, and only over time, did they become obvious to me.
For example, I was told by people who did readings, to stop doing readings for free - I was just talking to people and had no idea I was having some 'mystical conversation' with them, it was a natural part of my life, me being me.
Apparently I was also a 'healer' - and if you are an 'entry level' person you will resonate with this word - as 'healer' means 'person that makes others feel better'.
If you have been around healing for a while, it's likely that you would say you were a facilitator, which doesn't really make sense to people who come out of mainstream - they may think you coordinate events or some other random thing. Once upon a time, as far as I was concerned a Facilitator was a random term with multi-functions, a little like the word Consultant.
Anyway - the following list may prove useful to you - and perhaps it will bring an AHA moment or two, plus answer the odd question you may have.
It all relates to my experience and what I have witnessed through my work. Knowing how to use these gifts has changed my life completely.
1. Your hands intermittently get really hot. And may even be dry or peel.
2. You feel awful when others are suffering.
3. If you could take people’s pain away you would.
4. You are attracted to caring professions.
5. You are the ‘go to’ or fix-it person in your family circle of friends.
6. People sit down next to you and tell you their life stories without any encouragement on your part. Often they are perfect strangers.
7. You constantly hear the words ‘you just know the right things to say’.
8. People tell you they feel better ‘just having you around’.
9. You can see the bigger picture and are great at reassuring people.
10. When people who felt terrible, get up feeling fabulous and walk away, sometimes you feel flat as a pancake.
11. Even when you are the sober driver, you still wake the next day feeling hung over.
12. You feel chronically dehydrated sometimes.
13. Sometimes (often times) you have to admit that you look after other people better than you look after yourself.
14. You often run on empty, then find some kind of magic hidden reserve and keep going. (No, wait! That might be also be parenting!)
15. You can no longer watch the scary movies or thrillers you once found interesting because they somehow impact too deeply on your body.
If any of these things, a few; or even nearly all of them resonate with you – you could probably do with a few tips make life a little easier. Using your skills in a focused way can create amazing wellness for you and others around you, it can save you time and money. It can even become an income, and may indeed be your life’s calling.
How many can you tick off this list? Share with me - I'd love to know.
