It was around this time I attended a public talk by the Dalia Lama in Melbourne. I was interested in what he had to say about living a spiritual life. I was intrigued by his loving, smiley demeanour wanting to know how this could be after all he had been through. It was a lovely calming experience, and as much as I loved the feeling I found it difficult to understand what the Dalai Lama was actually saying. Maybe that was the point. However, one sentence stood out. I am sure he said something like:
Whatever he actually said I will probably never know, but this is what I heard. His words felt good, but I had no idea what they meant or how I could apply that to my life.
I had flirted with the principles of Buddhism as I had all religions, spiritual traditions, political systems, ideologies, and art and music movements. But, I did not want to replace one belief system with another, I wanted to find something unique and authentic to me. Meditation led me to Reiki that led me back to my heart. Reiki awoke my wise higher self, that embraced my physical being self with love. I began to live my life from this whole aligned perspective. Healing occurred and outdated beliefs and ideas just fell away to reveal the path of least resistance to my dreams and desires.
Over the years I realised I took what resonated from everything I had studied and had come up with my own way of living that shifts and moves, depending on the situation. It is an organic, living meditation, breathing love and creativity into all that I am and all that I do.
For fifteen years I been dedicated to guide and heal through private consultation, classes and courses.
I love to light a path to the mystical inner worlds of feeling, knowing and creation.
I am the author of The Flower of Life wisdom cards, The Art of Love Tarot and a new deck due out next year call The Secret Language of Light, as well as a number of meditation CDs. I am also blessed to have my instructions on “how to use oracle cards” and a range of different card spreads published in many decks by the illuminating artist and author Toni Carmine Salerno.
I blissfully reside in the Inner West of Sydney with my inspiring husband and our quirky Tonkinese cat.
My meditation practice inspired me to change my career. After a few years of intense study I became a Remedial Massage Therapist for eight years. This led me to become a Reiki Master Teacher, Meditation Teacher, Holistic Counsellor and Tarot Master. My studies are far and wide, embracing many metaphysical studies including philosophy, theology, psychology, the paranormal, counselling, sacred geometry and symbology. A strong curiosity about leading edge thoughts and ideas guide me to continually review and transform my view of me, all, and the Universe.
