Eighteen years ago I founded the Infinite Light Healing Studies Center, Inc. We are located in Sedona, Arizona.

Over the years our Center has taken different forms, but has always served as an umbrella for my healing work, teaching, writing and for the development of advanced healing techniques, including Reiki techniques, color healing, and earth healing and peaceweaving programs. I also provide the service of Soul Profile Reports and Clearing sessions via distant energy work. I have 16 years experience with Reiki healing and over 25 years experience with complementary healing modalities.

All things are energy . . .

I have a soul level knowing that all things are energy, even peace. I have seen firsthand how prayer and Reiki can change the energy of a human being so much that radical chemo therapy treatments have little side effect. I have seen Reiki set a broken bone, and heal a burn before my eyes. I don’t just believe in the power of spiritual energy to transform I know it to be so. I am convinced that we can utilize what we have learned about Reiki for healing humans and apply it to raising the vibration of the collective consciousness and work together to co-create the promised “age of peace”.

My healing practice . . .

In my healing practice I work with a variety of chronic illnesses, like cancer, chronic fatigue, and fibromyalgia. I also work with survivors of multiple types of abuse, adults and children. Many people come to me for the simple aches and pains of everyday life, to relieve stress and sometimes just to find a little serenity in a safe haven. Often my clients come to me to help them get more deeply in touch with their inner guidance and more focused on their purpose in life.

I am honored to serve the International Center for Reiki Training as the Director of Teacher Licensing, assisting student teachers as they progress through our program. It brings me great joy to assist such wonderful healing spirits. I learn so much working with this great group of people. As a licensed teacher I have traveled extensively around the world teaching classes.

Creating harmony . . .

In 1995 I felt the need to organize a group of Reiki practitioners and teachers from a variety of schools, to focus on promoting harmony in our Reiki community. The day after I established that intent, a wonderful woman, another Reiki Master from a different school, “poofed” into my life. Together we co-founded our local healing group United in Healing. The group has grown into a beautiful network of healing practitioners who work together for community outreach and service projects, and support one another on our personal healing paths.

My personal healing . . .

When I found Reiki, or Reiki found me, I had been diagnosed with clinical depression. I owned an established computer graphic business, was a workaholic, and a momaholic. I tried to be everything for everybody and left nothing for myself. So to make a long story short, I became burned out, or “hit the wall” as they say in the graphic biz.

Reiki helped me balance my energies again. When I first studied Reiki, I thought I was learning it to be able to heal everyone else. Little did I know that Reiki had other plans for me. The first two years with Reiki I went through an intense healing of repressed anger, and emotions. Reiki helped me begin to understand who I am for the first time in my adult life. I had allowed the world around me to lead me into the “Land of Forgotten Purpose” for many years.

A prayer from and 8 year old heart . . .became my quest;

You see I really knew at a very young age that this work is why I was called to the planet at this time. When I was 8 years old I decided it was time to become a responsible person, and of course responsible people have a plan for their lives. So I began to wonder what I should do with my life. Well “coincidentally” my grandmother had just given me a Bible. She said, “Honey, if you ever have any questions about life, all the answers are in this book”. Well I thought this was wonderful, I would just look myself up in this book and find out what I would do when I grew up. Guess what, the book didn’t even have my name in it.

As I diligently searched the Bible for the answer to my question I became mesmerized by the stories of Jesus doing healing. I proudly announced to my family that “When I grow up I am going to travel around the world, and help heal people, and teach them that they can do this to”. Ooops…wrong thing to say. The response was, “That’s very nice honey, but you can’t do that, only Jesus can.” “Oh no” I said, “It says right here (in John) these things I do you can do and even greater.” “I know that’s what it says,
but that’s not what it means”.

So for various reasons, I allowed my inner knowing of my life’s purpose to be blocked when I was just 8 years old. But not before I had a little conversation with God. I said “God, I really want to help people like Jesus did, they say I can’t, but the Bible says I can. So I guess if I am supposed to do this you’ll figure it out and show me someday”.

That prayer was completely released and forgotten, but looking back, I was guided from that moment on. I was guided through good times and tough times. Sometimes I made the easy choice, and sometimes I made harder ones. But somehow, God helped me find my way to live the answer to the prayer of an 8 year old with a dream.

I wish you peace and many blessings.

As in the light of the Creator… We See Only Love,
