Client Testimony

I met several practitioners of Reiki before I felt inspired to gain the skill myself. Julie Roberts impressed me first with her palpable reiki charge and healing abilities and then a second time with her concise, supportive teaching style. I felt that I got a great overview of the history of Reiki, and also a great hands-on section, which left me feeling confident and excited to try my new skills. This was a great course, I'm looking forward to mastery with the help of Julie. ~ High Priestess, Granada Hills, CA.

Many years ago when I was in the beginning phases of my own spiritual journey, I discovered that there were places that I could learn how to develop my psychic skills and even learn the high art of magic.  I signed up for many classes, only to cancel at the last minute or not show up at all.  Though I truly desired to learn and wanted to take these courses when I signed up for them, something happened to me on the day of these classes.  My thoughts would rationalize and come up with a number of reasons and excuses as to why I shouldn't go.

"I'm tired."

"The class will probably be taught again in the future."

"It's too far away. There will be traffic."

These were common excuses that ran through my mind and more often than not, these thoughts convinced me to not go to class.  This wasn't just about being young and flakey.  There was deeper meaning here.   I know now that the reason why I repeatedly cancelled on those classes is because of fear.  I was AFRAID to walk in my own power.

I know now that the ego is highly intelligent and that it does not want to change or grow because it equates all change (even healing) with death.   It is rooted in fear.  It is defensive by nature as it is connected to our primal instincts.  The ego's first and foremost job is to protect.

A part of me was deeply afraid to live authentically in my truth. Perhaps I was not ready to take on the responsibility and accountability that came with such wisdom? Perhaps it wasn't the right time for me to blossom fully into my own gifts?

Regardless, I was not walking in my own power.  I do not judge myself for this, however, I see clearly now how my choices were motivated by fears which kept me from the growth and progress I desired.  Fear can stunt one's spiritual growth and cripple the soul, if we allow it to.

When we make choices that are rooted in fear, we give away our power.  When we consistently look to others for validation, we do not own our power.   When we cannot be confident in making a decision on our own, we are not living an empowered life.  When you don't believe in yourself, when you criticize or sabotage yourself, you destroy your own power.  When you refuse to take accountability and responsibility for your actions, you are not walking in your power.  When you abandon your dreams, you abandon your power.  All of these things weaken your energy, giving your power away to others, fear, and things that are not real.

Times are quite different than they were a generation ago.  The energy has shifted here on this planet, in recent years.  The Age of Aquarius has officially begun.  The new Paradigm is being created and we are in an incredibly powerful time of manifestation.  It appears that spiritual energies are manifesting into physical form more quickly than in years prior.

What we manifest is relative to our frequency, which is relative to how we think and feel.  All of this is governed by our belief system.  If we place our faith outside of ourselves or harbor our thoughts in fear and worry, chaos is all we will ever create.

We are being called to walk fully in our power and stop allowing fear to separate us from our divinity.  Now is the time for following our fascination and taking action, creating the life of our dreams.  We no longer have the luxury of fear motivating our decisions and ruling our lives as it has for the past 2000+ years.  It's time for us to look fear in the face and see it for what it is: ILLUSION.  False Evidence Appearing Real.

It's time to stop playing the role of the victim and choose the role of the hero in our personal story.  It is time for us to start taking steps to creating our greatest dreams.

Imbalances in the emotional body need to be healed and balanced at this time.  If the emotional body is not healed, the physical body will not be able to hold the new frequencies coming through.  The physical body will begin to break down.

The ego is rooted in fear, a dense and primal energy that triggers instinctual responses.  It is defensive, it does not like change, and it always feels as if it is under 'attack'.

Many spiritual traditions try to 'slay' or destroy the ego.  This kind of thinking only causes us to judge and criticize the Self.  We all have egos. It cannot be removed, it is a part of us.  To try to destroy or remove it would only cause damage to the Self as a whole.  To judge the ego is to judge the Self.  Yes, it is the 'lower' Self, but an aspect of our being nonetheless.  In order to be whole, we must first accept every part of our Self and practice Unconditional Love.

By practicing Awareness we are able to recognize when the ego is influencing us.  It is through our own Awareness as the silent observer that we will be able to bear witness to the ego as it attempts to influence our actions.  Only when we are Aware are we able to make conscious choices instead of reacting emotionally to a situation.

When the ego influences our decisions, convincing us to do or not do certain things, our choices and actions also are rooted in that fear because fear is the underlying motivation for that action.  Become aware of how many times in a day we do not say something because we are 'afraid' someone may respond in an undesirable way.  Or we are worried that x may happen, so instead we do y.  Perhaps a part of us longs to dance, but our fear of judgment from others prevents us from becoming a dancer.

When an individual is motivated by fear, their energy becomes stagnant and they do not change, grow, or evolve in a healthy way.  The stagnation of energy is the breeding ground for dis-ease.  Energy wants to flow.  Imagine a pool of clean water that is still and stagnant.  Over time, things would begin to grow and that water would become so full of bacteria that it would be poisonous for us to drink.

As we co-create a better world, it would be beneficial to pay attention to what is motivating our choices and decisions from moment to moment throughout the day.  If we continue to be unaware and make reactionary choices based in fear, what will we manifest?  Will we create harmony?  Or chaos?  If we practice awareness and make the conscious choice to make our decisions from a place of Love, we will manifest our Ideal.  This is the goal as we co-create the New Paradigm.

"Be careful what you water your dreams with.  Water them with worry and fear and you will produce weeds that choke the life from your dream.  Water them with optimism and solutions and you will cultivate success.  Always be on the lookout for ways to turn a problem into an opportunity for success.  Always be on the lookout for ways to nurture your dream."
~ Lao Tzu
