I knew at a young age that the Universe guides me.
I was excited in my early twenties to try and experience different meditation techniques and to perfect and learn all I could about yoga and the spirituality side of it. All my dedication and work helped open me up to my true self. Although we are constantly growing and changing with each passing day, I know that I am here on earth to help spread Peace, Love and Light to others. To provide someone with peace is to help them feel grounded and balanced in all aspects of life. Peace helps quiet their mind and their inner voice. Peace helps them become aware of their own energy patterns and habits and helps shift them in a positive direction. To bring love to someone is to help them live from a place of gratitude and appreciate all they already have. The more we give thanks for what we already have the more things naturally flow our way. To bring light to someone is to help them connect and see the pure, calming beauty of nature and animals. Most importantly these qualities help us to move through life treating others the way we would want to be treated. The Universal light force energy in our body and the energy field around it, called the aura, bring light and clarity; help us move away from darkness and toward the natural healing process. They restore physical and emotional well being. Through Reiki and other healing energy techniques they are helped to feel connected to their higher power/Universal intelligence which makes them feel safe, happy and grateful for life. Light energy can then be passed on to others throughout their day. Knowing that we are not alone on this journey and that we are all connected can be deeply comforting at a conscious and subconscious level.
A little back history…
When I was in my mid 20’s, I had opportunities to compete in bikini contests, fitness competitions and pageants, including Miss Universe Canada 2004.
I had opportunities to travel around the world where I did both photo shoots and make-up for other models. I had a very blessed opportunity to shoot three solo calendars in Ibiza, Mykonos and Toronto. I also made appearances at trade shows and at big fitness events like Mr. Olympia and The Arnold classic. I was also blessed during my twenties to become a full ACTRA member, which allows me to work in film, television and commercials for over twelve years now. Even though it seemed like outer body image was the focus, I always stayed true to being a good, kind hearted, positive energy person. I confidently know that all my successes would not have been reached to their full potential if I was not a good soul/person. Karma has a powerful way of keeping the energy you put out flowing back to you….
Now in my late 30’s, after years of studying and completing my Reiki courses, life has a totally different feel to it. I’m confident, mature, clear and grounded in my roots. I know the type of people and things I need to surrounded myself with. I keep a positive energy field for myself, my two wonderful children, Dylan and Faith and husband Dr. Aubrey Green. I live my belief that creating a positive space, both for work and home life, is an important responsibility and will benefit everyone important to you.
My Journey To Becoming a Reiki Master
My gateway into Light, Energy, Spirits, The Universe and uplifting Mantras designed to raise your vibration came to me in 2006 from a powerful and wise Teacher, Astrologist and Life Enhancement Coach, Chantal Patenaude. Chantal has been teaching and leading conferences in the Toronto area and Arizona for over 30 years. After years of practising yoga, mantras and meditation, I wanted to deepen my spiritual connection with everything in our Universe, as well as learn how to harness my own ENERGY. I decided to take my Reiki Level 1 in 2010 with Lorena Colarusso who is a registered Psychotherapist, Certified Professional Coach, Certified Emotional Clearing Facilitator, Master NLP Practitioner with advanced training in various somatic and Energetic Therapies.
Before I was ready to complete my Level 1, I needed to complete a clearing in myself and Lorena was the perfect person to help me get started. Detailed information about her is available at lorenacolarusso.com. Then, due to our differing locations, I felt I needed to find a new Reiki Master to guide me on my path. In 2011 I started working with Sandra Levy who is also an amazing Psychotherapist and Hypnotist. She studied at Transformational Arts College and currently teaches there. Although Sandra never taught me Reiki, I went for regular sessions with her over the years where she did Reiki on me and I continue to practise what I have leaned. Experiencing the sessions from the client’s point of view has helped me to understand what I want to incorporate into my practice and helped with my personal learning. Sandra was the one who taught me about sound as a healing morality and the importance of it to create clearing in people and animals. In 2015 I was ready to take my Reiki level 2 and felt it would be a good idea to start this level with someone who did not know me or anything about my life. It would be a new, fresh start. I started studying with Paul Lara the owner of QiBelly who teaches Reiki, Meditation, Qi Gong, Ti Chi. His information is available at qibelly.com. Paul was completely different than the other two teachers I studied with which made sense since he studied in Japan and China learning classic Chinese lineages. The symbols and mantras were different but I welcomed and enjoyed a new found energy field. After completing the weeks required to get my Level 2 certificate, I started to practise on family, friends and clients. In 2016 I felt like I had more leaning to do as learning is a lifelong process. I found a teacher and mentor that I connected with in every way and just being in her presence made me want to learn everything she knew, Vivian Osal. Find out all about her at osal.ca. Vivian is a Spiritual Teacher, Trance Channeller and Intuitive Healer, Reiki Master and works with Past Life Regression and The Akashic Records. I decided to retake my Reiki Level 2 with her and continued to complete my Reiki level 3 Personal mastery level, and my Level 1 in learning how to read Akashic Records with her too. I currently continue to do sessions with her and know my journey of learning will never be over. Please feel free to check out my teachers’ sites and if you feel a connection to one of them indulge in a session. Having a positive, clear connection of love and trust is the most important thing you need when choosing who to connect with in your session.
Over the last two years I have been working at Addiction Rehab Toronto, an alcohol and drug treatment centre. I have had the opportunity to work with people from all different walks of life. The end result is always the same; people need a healing safe space to go deeper into their healing process. They need Universal energy from their higher power to change old energy patterns and habits. Reiki and healing energy work can help them heal from within on so many levels. As Reiki energy moves through the body it helps bring areas of emotional and physical hurt/pain into balance. It even helps release things that have happened many, many years ago.

In 2016 I went through a bit of a down period myself. My dad was diagnosed with stage four skin cancer in April and by September 29th, two days after my birthday, he passed away peacefully in my arms. I had the opportunity to perform Reiki on him, my mom, sister and brothers as we all sat with him during the laboured breathing period. I had a gut feeling he did not want to die in front of them all. I was right, and a few hours after everyone left for the night he very calmly took his last breath. I was in an energy trance, talking to him about how marvellous heaven was and how so comforting it would be to finally meet our maker and how many other spirits were waiting for him up there. The funny thing is my dad was old school and never believed in Energy work and would tease me by calling me a witch. I know the flow of Reiki Energy comforted him on his last little bit on earth. I have always known that spirits stay connected to earth and the more open you are to signs the more you can feel this connection. This music was playing at the time.
