Karuna Reiki® Level II (currently completing Master Teacher level) | B.Msc. Bachelor of Metaphysical Science ( currently working on Masters level)

At 16, Victoria really started to trust the universe. Up to that point, her life path was not clear to her…other than she knew she wanted to serve and make a positive difference in people’s lives.

Always a curious person, Vicky studied Philosophy and Psychology at Carleton University. These studies enticed her to begin to question everything. Why do we behave the way we do? How are we all alike, yet different? How can we understand the gifts we bring into this lifetime and how to best utilize them?

Fast forward a few years.

Victoria is now a Usui Reiki Master Teacher. She’s also expanding her horizons of all things metaphysical through courses at the University of Metaphysical Sciences.

Yet in all of her varied studies and course work, Vicky has come to understand one important truth. Surrender to the universe and trust that there is a plan. When we surrender and trust, the answers will come…both from inside ourselves and through our connection to the universe.

So why Reiki as Vicky’s healing modality of choice?

Because it is a way of life. It is a way for us to take that hour or two to just BE…to be still and connect with ourselves.

Vicky clearly remembers a time in her own life during which she experienced severe anxiety and depression. Even getting out of bed each morning was a struggle. She felt stuck, bathed in an energy of hopelessness.

Yet in experiencing her first Reiki session, Vicky felt the energy shift…and knew she wanted to feel that way all the time. Reiki invited a sense of lightness in place of the weight she’d been carrying…had been putting on herself to that point.

Reiki showed her another way.

Everyone has those defining moments in their lives when they ask the universe for a sign to help them navigate whatever hardships they may be encountering. Vicky’s understanding and guidance? TRUST. Trust the universe. Trust yourself. Every day…every second…you can manifest the life you want. Co-create, co-author that life with the universe. Then stand back, get out of your own way, and just watch what unfolds.

There are many entry points into this understanding…and Reiki is a powerful one.
