I have always been sheepish and shy about saying that I’m a healer. And now, with having learned Reiki 1 and 2 with Linda Bertaut, I have the clarity and confidence to say that I am a healer.
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. 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.
Linda is the most amazing and gifted Reiki Master. I had training 8 years ago that fell flat with me. 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. It was so rich and so full. 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.” Laura Edwards, Laura’s Skin Care and More, Fair Oaks, CA, @lauraedwardsskincarestudio
