Take a wellness journey into physical, emotional, and spiritual healing and wellness with the essences of plants in pure essential oils with me as I share my personal holistic experience. When I was first introduced to essential oils, I was no stranger to holistic and spiritual healing as a holistic energy healing practitioner. I had seen firsthand the healing power of nature through herbal teas, herbal supplements, Bach’s flower Essences, forest bathing, earthing, the ocean, the mountains, gardening, and the foods we choose to eat. My first experience with essential oils came in a cloudy time in my life. I had fallen out of consistency with my holistic practices. My life’s path hadn’t taken me where I was hoping it would. I was dealing with my very own “Welcome to Holland” story. “Welcome to Holland” by Emily Perl Kingsley was offered to me from one of my colleagues to offer me perspective on my acceptance journey of having a unicorn child with different challenges than the other children around her. I wasn’t ready to appreciate Holland yet and was overwhelmed by visions of loss and a journey of endless mountains to climb. I found myself feeling powerless and hopeless again. A dark fog covered my thoughts and emotions. My clarity was lost. I had lost my passion and inner child joy. I was increasing my own suffering with false beliefs I invented in fear of the unknown future, and I was shutting down…

A Dear Friend, an Acupuncturist, and some Essential Oils walk into a Hair Salon

My mom was worried, my friends were concerned, and I was losing my hair in clumps in the shower as it thinned and broke off under the pressure of the stress on my body. I was feeling really poorly. I had got caught in the chaotic swirl of life again and self-care seemed like an impossible feat. My close friend, who also happens to be my long-term hair stylist, ambushed me with the unexpected introduction to a woman on the day of my hair appointment. My friend was no dummy. She knew I wouldn’t neglect coloring my roots, and she knew that once I heard this beautiful human speak her truth, I would be all in. She was a trained acupuncturist and an exercise and wellness coach. She was pure and brilliant in every sense of the word, rich with knowledge and information with a bright light inside of her heart that could light up seven counties. I instantly adored her. She introduced me to the amazing healing properties of essential oils when used to nourish ourselves with the purest essence of plants.

She provided me with a starting point and an experience that day along with compassion and understanding. She conducted a Zyto scan for me using galvanic skin response technology similar to the Itovi scanner I use today. When I read about the properties of the essential oils personally presenting for me from my report, I was in awe. It was like reading an autobiography of my exact emotions and physical difficulties in real time. It was spot on for me, and she had my full attention. I spent the next 6 months researching companies and trying essential oils chosen from my scan and guidance from my new mentor. Coming from a nursing background, doing my research was an important step in my process. It didn’t take me long to understand the gift I had received with this transfer of plant wisdom. I connected to essential oils immediately.

The first essential oils I used were joined together in a prediluted blend for Focus support, called Intune. Within 2 days, I noticed the brain fog lifted, and I could feel my clarity returning. My ability to make healthier choices and see things clearly joined the party again! I was waking up! Intrigued by my results, I experimented with my next prediluted essential oil blend called, Clary Calm to help support balancing my hormones and emotions. I was equally amazed at not only how much better I felt, but how quickly I improved with essential oil use. My body responded beautifully to the power of plants working at the cellular level in this pure form. My hair grew back and became even healthier with consistent use of essential oils mixed into my shampoo. By now, my husband was noticing my results and happy to see my inner spark shining out again. We were ready to start diffusing essential oils around our daughters, and I was ready to start trying to integrate essential oils into modern medicine.

Fire lit, I chose the company I was most comfortable with based on purity, integrity, sustainability, and indigenous sourcing. I only use certified pure third party tested essential oils that are indigenously and sustainably sourced making the most hospitable environment possible for the highest vibrational plant essence and plant growth in turn gifting us with the highest vibrational plant medicine available. I have a strong connection to plant energy, and understand the wisdom plants can offer us. I want the purest essential oils available to harness that wisdom. I have spent the last eight years continually learning and growing with this knowledge absorbing everything I can to help share these gifts of wellness with myself and others.

Today, essential oils continue to be a staple in my personal and professional practice. Not only do I use essential oils daily, I work as a certified essential oil specialist, Reiki Master Teacher and holistic RN educating and guiding people to wellness through the power of plants via pure essential oils. It has been a joy to share this gift with others and watch them grow in wellness and raise their vibration.

When I was in my twenties, I was working the night shift as a registered nurse in a locked psychiatric hospital in Reading, Pennsylvania away from my family and everyone I’d ever known in my life except for my husband. I made some of the most amazing friends there, but I still was left with a lot more time to sit with myself with very little distractions. My chronic muscle pain and migraines that I had suffered with since puberty grew increasingly worse and my quality of life suffered. I suffered from insomnia and nightmares from post-traumatic response. I was diagnosed with PTSD, Panic Disorder, and ADD along with Hashimoto’s Disease, Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue, and Vitamin D Deficiency, and I’m sure I’ve missed a few. I was sad. I was grieving many things. It was when I finally admitted to myself that I was also now on an infertility journey on top of everything else, that Reiki found me. It walked right up to me in the pouring rain with tears streaming down my face.

An opportunity to go inward with Reiki Energy arrived at exactly the right moment.

Walking out of a failed yoga class because I was in too much pain to get through it, feeling inflamed in more ways than one, I felt utter defeat and hopelessness; the days of my prior athleticism seeming far out of reach. Crying as I started walking towards my car, it began pouring rain, and I saw this woman walk right through the rain straight towards me from an office adjacent to the yoga studio. I know-you’re thinking we’ve now entered a scene from a movie. Trust me, psych nurse here, I’ve seen a lot. I was thoroughly suspicious. She walked straight to me getting completely soaked and asked me how I was doing. Say What? She then proceeded to tell me she felt called to come out and find me because she felt my energy field and was compelled to come introduce me to an energy healing technique called Reiki. After explaining to me this was unusual for her to do, I decided to go with her to her office and talk. I mean unusual was kind of right up my alley anyway, so of course I went with her. She had a nice vibe about her so I followed her and my intuition right through the door. If my father ever reads this, he will be concerned but not at all surprised by my choice. Some of us have a wild curiosity that isn’t meant to be tamed and it often ends up guiding us to exactly where we are meant to be. Anyway, I digress…It was then she told me I was meant to be a Reiki Master. I had never even heard of Reiki at that time. I had received it when I was 18, but wasn’t told what it was, but that’s a whole other story…

Anyway, back to this one, this wonderful, wise, and kind medicine woman began treating me with Reiki. She had amazing wise grandmother like energy. I could feel from her that she was no stranger to pain and she was no stranger to overcoming. My first session was remarkable. I had an extreme response to the treatment. I was totally pain free for the first time in three years. I went home and slept for 10 straight hours. My husband actually counted my respirations for a few minutes because he hadn’t seen me sleep like that in so long. I continued to see her, and I worked through deep layers of trauma I had refused to look at ever before in my life. I felt clarity. A veil had been removed that was covering a layer of my awareness. I spoke truths I had never spoken to a soul that I had held for over 20 years, released in the safe, confidential space and blanket of comfort Reiki provided in her treatment room. As I released trapped emotions and began healing my emotional wounds and traumas, my physical ailments also began to improve. Under the supervision of a doctor’s care, I slowly came off of all of my medications except for my thyroid medication because I no longer needed the rest of them. After being told I wouldn’t be able to have children without fertility medication, I became pregnant with triplets naturally. Reiki helped emotionally support me through my miscarriage of the third baby 10 weeks later to stay as calm as possible for my remaining two.

I found myself realigning with my true self and remembering the things I loved in childhood like playing outside all summer, sledding, hiding under and climbing trees, swinging on vines and playing in the creek, staying at the ocean all day, catching crayfish, collecting rocks, feeding my pet spider in the bushes, teaching ants how to swim, admiring the bleeding heart bush at my grandparents’ home, making fairy potions and flower crowns for my hair, thinking about the meaning of stars and constellations, reading all of the books, talking to the birds, forest creatures, and trees. I came back home to myself in these things I loved and held dear in my heart center aligned with the rhythm of nature. I began making healthier naturally aligned choices for myself in other aspects of my life as well.

When my twin daughters were 2 months old in true Kelly fashion, I went ahead and had my first Reiki level one practitioner attunement after nosediving straight into a mild

postpartum depression on top of adjusting to a major life changing event. I recognize this was a lot to take on, and I honestly don’t even remember why in my mind I didn’t think it could wait at the time, but for whatever the reason the succession of events that followed my attunement would have postponed that attunement for years to come if I hadn’t done it exactly when I did. So, I know whatever was driving me to do it then, divine intervention sent it. I was now on the path to my calling, but it hadn’t sunk in yet at all. I was in Mommy world. I was totally focused on us all surviving in my new chaotic, unpredictable life.

So, I set it aside for a bit, you know the very thing that could have helped us all, THAT, I put that aside. Lol. You live and you learn, right? And it all worked out exactly as it should in God’s divine timing. The Reiki attunement elevated my life force energy, self-awareness and aided my subconscious excavation without me even actively practicing it. When I was ready to return to intentionally using it, it was waiting. All in good timing. Life force energy is already inside all of us. We just have to access it by going inward.

Becoming a Reiki Master Teacher was always my Path. I simply needed a little reminder from my inner child to take the first step into inner exploration.

Today as a Professional Reiki Master teacher of multiple Reiki lineages, I feel so blessed to have received the gift of energy healing for myself and family and to be able to give this gift to others in my teachings and watch them heal and grow in awareness, loving kindness, faith, balance, peace, and connection. This small story of my beginnings with energy healing is just a glimpse into the amazing healing journey Reiki guides us on. It is a journey of self-discovery, self-worth, self-love, self-actualization, and healing of the whole being. Reiki has been a wonderful stress reduction technique for balanced, heart centered living. Sharing this journey with you all is a privilege for which I am deeply grateful. May it be of benefit.
