Read the Transformative Stories of my Reiki students who bring more love and acceptance into the world through their lives and businesses.

“A year ago, I was at a real crossroads with my business brand and the type of work I was doing. As Mendocino Beauty, I offered facials, waxing and make-up, like everyone else. So what made me stand out…nothing. I wanted to shift away from this focus on outer appearance, on anti-aging in order to look younger.

Since taking my Transformative Esthetics certification and practicing Reiki on myself I’m feeling more confident doing what my heart is telling me. I’m more authentic with my clients. I encourage clients to love themselves from the inside-out. My most important intention is that they find the sparkle in their own eyes when they look in the mirror. I create rituals rather than a regimen and skin care becomes self-love.

I do Reiki, almost every morning on myself, as I’m waking up. The biggest thing I’ve realized is just how sensitive I am. That I have a gift. Reiki has taught me that it starts with me, that I am the example and have to be practicing it myself. I love the formula for a prayer that I learned in Linda’s class. I pre-pave my day where I visualize how I want the day to go and I put all of that in the prayer. I give thanks in advance for the day and being of service to my clients.

I changed my business name to Love Amy, Signature Skin Care and started specializing in just one type of facial, Ageless Radiance. Radiance comes from the inside; a light that shines from within you. Once I shifted to beautiful-aging I became known as being the best in the area. All the top clients started coming to me in droves and then I won The Skin Games, Esthetician of the Year Award.

Because I now know who I am and what I am offering, I am charging what I am worth and not giving out discounts. I honor myself by putting myself first. If I’m not able to pay my bills, by giving deals away, then that’s out of integrity. I am more accepting of the person that I am. Each day I am able to be more in the present. I am calmer, less critical of myself and therefore I am less critical of other people. My client relationships have improved because they walk out of their facial with something they didn’t expect…a healing. My clients really love me and I love them.

Become the best at what you really love. Have integrity by being true to yourself. Don’t be afraid to express what is in your heart. There is so much opportunity to be a healer. Reiki has helped me tune into the subtleties of energy and realize that there is so much magic in the world.”

BRINGERS OF THE HEART: ELVIRA’S STORY

Planting Seeds for a New Way of Being

A movement is happening. It is stirring from within the heart and calling people forth on a new path. This shift is being led by Bringers of the Heart, people who are planting seeds for more love and acceptance. Clients and beauty professionals alike are seeking more meaning and purpose in life. This presents an opportunity for estheticians who are feeling called to offer healing modalities in their practice. Beauty professionals like Elvira Luqman are helping to create this new heart-based reality through their business.

Read stories of Transformative Esthetic students who bring more love and acceptance into the world through their lives and businesses. Linda’s student Elvira shares her Bringer of the Heart experience:

“A year ago I had hit rock bottom in my life. I had just gone through a terrible relapse with alcohol. My marriage was in shambles. My business was suffering. I was a mess and I had no idea how to get myself out of such a dark place.

I decided to try a Reiki treatment. It was an amazing and intense experience. Afterwards, I felt ten pounds lighter, as though a weight was lifted off my chest. I realized that I wasn’t broken, just bruised. I wasn’t a bad person, just making poor choices. I was sabotaging my life because I didn’t think I was good enough. I wanted more of this feeling, so I sign-up for the [Transformative Esthetics with] Reiki 1 training.

Since this training my life has changed dramatically. I have over a year of sobriety. And I feel that I finally have the tools and the power to change my life and help people change their lives as well. I started rebranding my business, changing my service menu, making over my website, shifting towards holistic treatments and services. As I was making these changes with my business, I began to feel confident that I was doing the right thing. I also noticed, the more I stayed out of my head and into being of service, the more doors and opportunities opened for me.

My definition of success has definitely changed. I used to measure success only monetarily. I used to think that I wanted the sale, no matter what. So, I would undervalue my work. I felt I had to give a discount to get the person to come back. I never felt comfortable charging my price…because I didn’t value my worth. I now know that not all money is good money. If I lose a client, then that client is obviously not right for me.

Now I define success as having good and healthy relationships. The first relationship that changed was the relationship with myself. Next, was my relationship with my husband and son. I found that when you are not right with yourself it is hard to be right for yourself in other relationships.

In one year, my life and business have done a complete turn-around. I have rebuilt my personal and business relationships, I have more referrals, I have new clients and I could not be happier. With my clients, it is love all day long! They come in we hug; they have no problem paying full price. I have clients tell me ‘Wow! There’s something about you. You are glowing!’

There’s nothing more gratifying, than to know that I’ve been given this beautiful gift and that I can share it and watch the magic happen with my clients. If your heart is calling out for change, it’s time for a change. Linda Bertaut’s Reiki training is a great way to tap into your intuition, there is always room for growth!”

BRINGERS OF THE HEART: LAURA’S STORY

BRINGERS OF THE HEART: LAURA’S STORY

Planting Seeds for a New Way of Being

 

“Don’t compare yourself to others. We all have our innate gifts that we give in our treatments. Just do the work and trust.”  Laura Edwards, Laura’s Skin Care and More, Fair Oaks, CA

A movement is happening. It is stirring from within the heart and calling people forth on a new path. This shift is being led by Bringers of the Heart, people who are planting seeds for more love and acceptance. Clients and beauty professionals alike are seeking more meaning and purpose in life. This presents an opportunity for estheticians who are feeling called to offer healing modalities in their practice. Beauty professionals like Laura Edwards are helping to create this new heart-based reality through their business.

I have always been sheepish and shy about saying that I’m a healer. And now, with having learned Transformative Esthetics with Reiki 1 and 2, I have the clarity and confidence to say that I am a healer. If I had any advice for other healers in the beauty industry, it would be “Don’t compare yourself to others. We all have our innate gifts that we give in our treatments. Just do the work and trust.”

When I do the Reiki treatment, I feel so in awe—the only expectation I have is that I know my clients are going to be 100% balanced. The experience is different from client to client, and I feel joyful and excited to hear about what their experience was. I joke that it’s like magic, but no, it’s intentional, vibrational energy healing work. It’s beautiful.

Since learning to practice Reiki, I have added Reiki to my business, with great success. My clients rebook for it. They are talking about the benefits of this treatment. They’re buying gift certificates for friends. That is a measure of success for me. Clients are seeing the difference, they’re feeling the difference, and they want more, and I’m happy to give.

On a personal level, since taking the class I feel more confident in my gift, in my abilities as an esthetician. I feel as though it has helped me be clear about what my path is, which is to do healing work. I used to sit on my feelings because confrontation wouldn’t be something I would be comfortable doing. Even if it’s just a very simple no, I don’t want to make them mad, I don’t want to lose love. Now I don’t worry about losing love because I’m also loving myself by speaking my truth and my peace, and being compassionate. And knowing that it’s okay if there’s love lost—it just means it wasn’t there in the beginning. I don’t worry about that anymore.

Linda is the most amazing and gifted Reiki Master. I had training 8 years ago that fell flat with me. I had taken it with a practitioner who taught it in a massage therapy school. I didn’t know what to do with it. I felt flabbergasted by it—how do I incorporate it? Linda’s teaching was different—it resonated with me at such a gut level. It was like “Yes, yes, this is what I wanted.”  The way that she teaches Reiki to practice it in an esthetic practice was key.  But, still, her teaching is so much more. She gave us tangibles, she gave us very particular movements and treatments, and additional information, like the meridian dance, the Chakra personalities. It was so rich and so full, I tell everyone about her.
