Reiki Healing


Reiki. What is it?  I heard about Reiki before but wasn’t attracted to the “taste” so I didn’t bother moving forward researching it.  For me, when I hear about something new (new for me) that sounds like it will help get me to another positive, higher energy, I normally jump onto my computer and invest several hours trying to find out how I can apply it into my life.  Well, with Reiki, that wasn’t the case for me, UNTIL, my daughters’ friends mother from their gymnastics classes, told me about her Reiki experience: “I felt like I was lifting up and spinning around….”, she said, and for some reason that intrigued the heck out of me.  I then asked for her Reiki healers information so that I could have a session/experience of my own.

-Reiki (pronounced ray-key): a healing technique based on the principle that the therapist can channel energy into the patient by means of touch, to activate the natural healing processes of the patient’s body and restore emotional and physical well-being.



I scheduled my first Reiki appointment for the upcoming Monday (so I thought) and couldn’t wait for the day to come.  I kept thinking about how the experience might make me feel like I was elevating and twirling around in the sky and just that thought had me so eager.  The day had come for my appointment, which I scheduled for 12 noon, and I was running just 1 minute behind, I mean it was 12 noon and I was literally around the corner from the destination, so I could’ve easily just drove there, parked my car, and went up to the establishment, but I didn’t want the healer to think that I wasn’t coming so I gave her a call from around the corner to let her know that I was about to park the car and would be right up.  When the healer answered the phone I commenced to let her know that I would be right there for my session.  The funny thing was, she told me that I didn’t have an appointment for that day and that I actually scheduled it for the end of the month and not the beginning, like I thought.  She was in her car on her cell phone while telling me this, literally about to drive away from her establishment, when I called.  It was no coincidence that I called her at that exact time and that she answered the phone.   It was also no coincidence that the on-line scheduler should’ve been unavailable for this day because it was a Jewish Holiday and that somehow another one of her clients was able to schedule an appointment that same day, an hour before my thought-to-be 12 noon appointment, so for her to even be at her establishment was pretty amazing.  She said it was no problem whatsoever for her to see me.  So we both got out of our cars and walked up to her office together.



My eyes are closed and I am laying on my back listening to the reiki music being played in the background.  I feel her calm presence above me and a tingly energy in my hands.  I am most relaxed yet I am completely alert and having a conversation with her (you can talk during your session).  She includes me in on her approach to manifesting her desires in life, which is an approach I am definitely adopting.  My whole body is warm. She is quiet for a minute or so and I can still feel her gentle energy hands around my forehead area.  I then ask if she turned on the lights because a light came into the right corner of my eye.  She hadn’t moved her position from treating me and that the light I am seeing is her cleaning out my third eye area.  The light lasted for several seconds then went away then came back then went away…..this pattern is throughout the entire session.  I also see a hint of purple haze along with feeling some cute little kicks from the baby and I then realize her hands are hovering over my belly.  She places her hands on my left shoulder and rests there for a few moments.  Whatever tension I was feeling before the session has dissipated.  I feel a few tears exit the corner of my eyes and I am not sure of the reason for this leaking.  Maybe it’s a release or maybe…I don’t know.  She has now made her way down to my feet and is treating the energy residing in them.  This is incredible.

The session has ended and she hands me a bottle of water.  I asked her if she felt anything in me and she said she felt that I was very balanced, which was quite settling to hear.  She said the baby felt vibrant and that it would be a good thing for me to learn Reiki so that I could treat my children.



Reiki, in my opinion, is a safe and healthy practice, designed to heal the inner world of whatever unbalances and blockage you may have along with help open up your chakra energies. Anything healthy and spiritual that can aide in elevating your consciousness and relieve stress is my thing and I will definitely be back for more Reiki healing.  The sessions are not expensive and yet the outcomes are priceless.  If you ever feel the desire to have your own Reiki experience, I highly suggest you do your research about it, first, then go with your heart as to whom you decide to give you healing.

That’s all! Thank you for reading!

Much love and blessings to you all,

Yoga For Beginners | SuperCurlyGurl


I get asked a lot of questions about how I got started in yoga and what steps to take if you have never done yoga before, and I always say the same thing, “start from the beginning.”

A little bit of a background:

My yoga journey began on December 1, 2015 with the #BeginnerYoga2015 challenge on Instagram, hosted by @kinoyoga and @beachyogagirl. I knew I wanted to do yoga everyday but just didn’t know where to begin or what to do or even how to start. So when I came across one of @kinoyoga’s posts talking about a beginner yoga challenge, I was all about it. All you had to do was follow the hosts, @kinoyoga and @beachyogagirl and the sponsor, @mantraband and make sure to tag the name of the challenge #BeginnerYoga2015 in every post so that our challenge pose is visible to not only the hosts and sponsor but to everyone participating in the same challenge. It was perfect. A challenge where I had to do a yoga pose everyday for 30 days made me so happy. It was going to hold me accountable and make me do yoga everyday which is exactly what I wanted.

@kinoyoga and @beachyogagirl would post the beginner yoga challenge pose the nights before, I would look at them and mentally do the pose in my head so for the following day I would be ready to physically do them. At first I asked my husband to take my pictures, which was ok in the beginning but at times when he wasn’t around and I was ready to do my beginner yoga challenge poses I would have to wait on him to get home which slowed down my momentum. Eventually I smartened up and just filmed myself doing the poses and took still shots of the actual pose (to this day I do this method).

After my first yoga challenge I WAS HOOKED! I fell in love with getting to know my strengths and weaknesses. I became more aware of my breathing, my focus or lack there of, and began noticing my body changing; not my physical body (which also changed) but my inner body. I was more calm and relaxed and I absolutely loved it. From there I couldn’t stop. I seeked out more and more yoga challenges. I seeked out more and more yogi’s and became so inspired by their pictures and videos and their flexibility and even the ones that weren’t so flexible but were showing progress after progress. Everyone was so heart centered and exposed! It was enlightening and it is still enlightening.

I’ve been on my yoga journey for 8 months now and though that may seem like a long time, it’s really not. I still consider myself a beginner. I think I always will because yoga is forever. You’re always learning and you’re always growing. It never ends. I’m amazed at a lot of the poses that I can now get into which I couldn’t get into before and though they are shaky they are improvements.

All this to say is that if you really want to start yoga, just go ahead and start. There are online courses to take if you don’t feel comfortable going to a studio. I personally love The monthly subscription is only $9.95 and it gives you a plethora of classes in all styles of yoga and it also has documentaries and meditations and all kinds of enlightening programs. If you prefer the free route go to YouTube!!! YouTube is the absolute best for free awesome yoga tutorials and some complete classes as well. Or you can start how I started…Instagram yoga challenges. Any way you start it will be the perfect way for you.

I am always available to talk about yoga so if you have any questions for me PLEASE do not hesitate to reach out. Comment below and/or email me at and I will get right back to you.

Have a blessed and loving day!

Yours truly,

Natural Hair Journey | Starting Over Again

Hi everyone! I know that I have been MIA for a very long time but I’m back and I’m starting my natural hair journey all over again and this time around it’s not about the length so much as it is about the strength, thickness, and health. This time I am concentrating solely on these 3 elements and nothing else. I used to be focused on how long my hair could get and that obsession costed me time and money, and more time and money.

So, welcome back and thank you so much for being here with me on my new journey.

Yours Truly,


Oh!  Don’t forget to GET YOUR iPhro SHIRT HERE: iPhro  Your support is greatly appreciated!
