Reiki Master, EFT and Energy Psychology Coach, Writer
Growing up in Northern Italy I have had the luck of being exposed to all kinds of amazing healing modalities. From Reflexology to Macrobiotic diet ,and from acupuncture to Bach's flower remedies I had a chance to see in person the benefits one can get from practicing these very useful modalities. Yet, it wasn't until I came across EFT that I was able to effectively work through the various traumas that filled my early childhood years and that I had completely forgotten about until someone close to me opened up and I started having flashbacks . My whole life has been a dance of being exposed to healing modalities and using them to overcome whatever great issue I was faced with at the time, some of which would be called complex Ptsd.
Knowing is half the battle, the other half is being able to overcome the past unresolved traumas most of us have, because let's face it, our parents were, most likely, much less than awesome in the "parenting with love and balance" department. Love is anyway not always enough when you carry unresolved Ptsd inside, and since with time it only gets worse, making the "carrier" more aggressive and quicker in reacting, I am surprised we are not all taught in school how to deal with it right on the spot while the traumatic events are occurring.
This is what has driven me to learn more and more, feeling and seeing so many people in pain and nobody there to help. Not only did I want to feel better about my life and finally have one, I also felt this need to help those who needed helping, even when I had almost nothing to give.
After spending the past twenty years using Reiki, about five years ago I started using EFT (aka Emotional Freedom Techniques, there are 48 different ones and many people don't even know this) as I was truly having a hard time dealing with the loss of someone close to me. I was so amazed with the results that I decided to become certified and started learning more and more. I then went on and took a bunch of different workshops and courses on coaching and since I have always been interested in helping others I have read many psychology books and have taken lots of different training in many healing modalities I may not even use on my clients other than knowing when to advise them on maybe looking into it and then referring to someone I trust and who could work with them. No matter how much we learn we will never know enough so my point of view is that we will help those who come in our path even if it is only through a trusted referral.
Working mostly with my family and being of support in their family business, the old fashion Italian way where the daughter gets to sacrifice and the boy gets the education, I learned most of my skills on my own or through workshops/long distance, practice, and direct experience.
After the family business was sold and my parents retired I was finally free to pursue my own dreams, at the "tender age" of 35. Nice and sick from a life long battle with migraines and psoriasis, due mostly to the childhood trauma I remembered nothing about and the non vegan diet I was unwittingly keeping, I decided to open my own cleaning/healing company offering actual home cleaning, the first step to healing, and energy healing. Being a good little Italian girl I started cleaning at the age of ten so the amount of experience I had in the subject was...stellar. This helped me through the transition of changing business and also being on my own, I was still sort of in familiar territory.
Over ten years have gone by and here I am, focusing on energy healing and coaching. I love cleaning and am passionate about teaching others how to do it correctly so it's not difficult or unpleasant, but more fun and effective. I love energy healing even more because the effects I have seen, not only in my life, but in those around me, have been magnificent.
I am truly looking forward to when scientists will finally catch up and show the world what us healers have known since the beginning of time....we are energy at the core, everything is energy, so energy is the only direction we should truly push our science toward. True healing starts at an energetic level and the more you play with it the more you realize how true this is. We are living in exciting times, especially for energy healers. Anything is possible, just wish for something good.
