Carol’s Reiki Journey

Carol’s Reiki journey began in 1998 Reiki when a series of synchronicities led her to trying to heal severely damaged knees she’d received after running fitness centres for many years and teaching 11 high impact aerobic classes each week, till her knees became swollen and painful, and remained so for more than 3 years, despite physiotherapy and other traditional therapies. Surgeons told her that there was a 20% chance an operation could fix her knees, and that she could never exercise again, or even go for walks. While at a local book shop, a Reiki book fell off the shelf in front of her. She read the back cover, and knew that she was meant to learn Reiki to heal her own knees. 2 Weeks later she attended a Reiki Level 1 Workshop in Byron Bay with Reiki Master Zetta Michaels. Zetta told her that she mast stay, walk on the beach on the Wednesday, and return to do Level 3 on the Thursday and Friday. 

During the flight home Carol experienced heat rising up her back which remained for 5 hours, and her hands were on fire. Once home she placed her hands on her knees for 20 minutes, then later went to bed. When she awoke the next morning, and the swelling and pain was gone and she could even run! She knew then that this mystical energy was not her imagination- it was real and it could heal. Even the pain in her back which she had had for several years, due to damage and a scoliosis for all the years of aerobics was gone. Carol knew that it was not her imagination- it was real and it could heal. 3 weeks later she started doing reiki treatments on clients and got amazing results.

A year later Carol did her Reiki Master’s training in Broken Hill and was also attuned to Seichim, the Egyptian Healing System know known as Sekhem/All Love, and 3 weeks later was teaching Reiki Workshops. Now Carol has over 700 students, including 72 Reiki Masters she has trained, so that they too can share the gift of Reiki with others.

This was the beginning of Carol’s life work as a healer, and she has long been recognised as a spiritual leader in her community. Reiki has changed her life, and it can change yours too!
Carol has continued to train in several other modalities, including becoming a Clinical and 5-PATH Hypnotherapist in 2005, the going on to train in Komyo Reiki-Do, Theta Healing, Touch For Health Kinesiology, Yi Dow, and Neuro Stress release using tapping techniques and other mind-body healing systems. She uses an integrative wellness approach to helping her clients to heal their mind, body, emotions and their lives. She believes in finding what works for you, then sharing it with others. This is her quest.

In 2021 carol was asked to join the Board of Directors for Reiki Australia, where she continues to help promote Reiki as an alternative form of Natural Therapy which can work alone or in conjunction with mainstream Western Medicine. As a Registered Nurse (Non-Practicing), she is very excited about bringing Reiki into hospitals and the wider community, because she has witnessed it first hand in her own life, dealing with 2 bouts of breast cancer and actually using Reiki, self-hypnosis, meditation and nutrition to heal her own bone cancer in 2016.
