The key to happiness is not to make yourself into a different person, it is to let yourself be even more of who you really are.

Robert Holden

My Story of Awakening

You feel something stirring deep inside. Your intuition is awakening. You've heard your soul calling. It's no accident that you're here - you're on a quest for answers and your soul has guided you here.


Perhaps yours has been a sudden, dramatic and confusing awakening. Or perhaps like me, it began as a quiet discomfort. A vague sense of unease, a subtle feeling of discontent, a growing sense of dissatisfaction sitting like a cold stone in my stomach.


These uncomfortable feelings grew in intensity until I could no longer ignore what I sensed inside. My soul was calling me to step up, and take my life to the next level.


Perhaps you've begun to ask the same sacred questions that stirred within me. I longed to know at the deepest level...

  • Who am I - really?

  • What am I doing with my life?

  • Why am I here?

  • What is my purpose?

  • What are my gifts, and how can I use them to help others?


I just knew there had to be more to life. I had felt my soul calling and I was driven now, by more than mere curiosity. Something was pulling me forward with an almost obsessive compulsion. I had to answer these questions, and so I surrendered to the journey.

My heart-led journey of self-discovery was an adventure. I learned to trust myself as I took intuitive leaps of faith - feeling fear, exhilaration and freedom all at once. And while initially frustrated at the meandering nature of my journey, I am now grateful for the richness it has added to my life.


It's difficult to express how grateful I am for having Reiki and Meditation in my life. My initial exploration into Reiki had only one goal - to learn how to heal my beloved dogs. To my surprise, what I discovered was much, much more than just a healing technique.

You see, the more I've worked with Reiki the more my life has improved. Most importantly to me, I have awakened to my authentic self.

Reiki and it's meditation practices have provided me with a comforting, gentle path of self-exploration. It has been instrumental in helping me answer sacred questions such as "Who am I?", "Why am I here?" and "How can I help others?".

I've become increasingly self-aware, less judgemental, more compassionate towards others, and can love and accept myself. I've found a sense of patience and connection not only with the world around me, but with myself. I consider this to be true healing.

I can now see how every step prepared me for the next, and every step took me deeper into understanding myself, my gifts and my potential. It gave me time to develop and deepen my personal spiritual practice which has helped me answer the eternal, sacred questions that used to wake me at 3am.

Consequently my life is more meaningful. I'm more intuitive, joyful and abundant. I feel deep satisfaction knowing I'm expressing my true nature and soul's purpose, and I live in a state of trust, love and gratitude.


I know who I am, and why I'm here. I'm here with you, a like-minded seeker. Please allow me to express my soul's purpose by helping you to remember your True Self.

You probably have an indescribable yearning to know who you are, why you're here and how you can live a meaningful life. You likely have a deep desire to discover your unique talents and gifts, or you may already have intuitive gifts and long to strengthen them so they can be used to help others.

It is my honour to be your guide as you explore the depths of your soul to answer your sacred questions. The truth is you already have the answers, you just need the tools to access them. In my experience it has been the spiritual practices of Reiki and Meditation that have provided the most profound transformation.

Let me share these tools with you. Learn to hear your soul more clearly so you can transform from confusion to clarity, from frustration to joy, from dull to vibrant and from bored to passionate!


When we live a life we love, our joy naturally radiates out into the world. We effortlessly begin to make the world a better place, just by our loving presence in it. Will you join me in making the world a better place, by becoming the best version of yourself?


With love and gratitude,

Charisse Joy
