Many people learn Reiki and connect with the wonder and flow of the Healing Energy.
We feel an initial enthusiasm for the health, wonder, gifts and energetic changes that Reiki brings into their lives.
Unfortunately, many of us then kinda get used to the energetic changes that have unfolded within us and forget to consciously connect with Reiki Healing Energy.
One of the greatest gifts we can offer ourselves is a regular connection with Reiki and the health and healing benefits it offers.
In 1995 I found my way to a Reiki Workshop and brought Reiki into my life.
Fortunately I made the conscious decision to consciously maintain my connection to the healing energy.
As well as offering Reiki to others both personally and professionally, I ensure that I regularly offer myself and receive Reiki Healing.
I can’t imagine how my life would be had I not consciously maintained my connection to Reiki.
Reiki offers me relaxation, stress and pain relief, connection, clarity and so much more.
I regularly offer Reiki to my pets.
Reiki healing gently balances the complex flow of life energies within, and surrounding us. It creates harmony within our Emotional, Mental, Physical and Spiritual self.
This reminds our energetic self of our harmonious way of being.
I have not only felt it myself, but I have also observed that regular connection with Reiki Healing energy bring improvement within general health, harmony and well-being.
Reiki is a gentle, subtle healing energy. The Reiki practitioner gently offers hands-on healing supporting the flow of universal life-force healing energy. It is subtle, calming and yet very empowering. Reiki brings harmony to our Body, Mind, Spirit, Heart and Soul.
It can cause no harm. Reiki healing is a pure energy form.
When the flow of the “Life Force Energy” is disrupted, weakened or blocked then emotional, physical and/or mental health problems can occur… and there can also be a general weakening of a connection to our personal spirituality.
Imbalances can come from many situations occurring in our lives, such as: emotional or physical trauma, injury, unconstructive thoughts and self-talk. Fear, worry, doubt, anger, anxiety, toxicity, nutritional depletion, unhealthy lifestyle and relationships and a disconnection from a conscious connection with emotions also create imbalances in our state of being and impact on our sense of personal well-being. There are many other individual responses to challenges in life.
Some of the Reiki Healing Health Benefits:
With Reiki we become more relaxed and calm.
Our natural ability to heal
has the opportunity to
restore, replenish and rejuvenate.
Over time, with a connection to Reiki has shown to support the restoration of emotional, mental, physical and spiritual well-being.
Reiki harmonizes the energy flow within, through and around us.
It flows to the areas of greatest need within our personal energy fields and consciousness.
This supports our body to heal.
When we are in good health, regular Reiki healing has shown to support and our innate ability to heal and enhance our approach to life. This often manifests as increased confidence and harmony in dealing with everyday events, living with a more optimistic approach to life.
Reiki Healing Energy supports recovery from illness. Reiki supports any treatment we may receive from medical interventions offered by both Western and Eastern Medicine.
as well as standing alone as a healing modality, Reiki is truly a complementary care. It complements and enhances the health care the patient receives in the hospital or from other health care providers.
Having learnt Reiki, it is there for us at any moment, any time, any where for on-the-spot stress release, harmonizing and calming. we can offer it to ourselves, to others, to our pets and even to plants.
Please feel free to call me to discuss how your
Reiki healing journey with The Healing House may benefit you
The Healing House offers many opportunities for you
to consciously connect with your healing journey and choices in
healthy and optimistic ways.
Hope to see you soon ..
Sending you love light and many blessings,
With Reiki in our lives we have the opportunity to embrace our lives with a deeper and more conscious relationship with ourselves and each other.
Each Reiki healing brings us into the present moment.
Reiki can centre us and with that, we can bring our instincts and intuition into harmony … and with that many feel a sense of personal peace and a consciousness with our choices and decisions.
Our instincts relate to our survival – our unconscious thoughts and our intuition relates to our desire to realise the potential and possibility of our life.
Change is inevitable with life.
Reiki can support us to be more flowing with the opportunities that inspired change offer us.
All life experiences a journey of transformation.
All life has a beginning point and a point where it ceases to be in its current form.
We as humans have our unique relationship with life and our unique experiences.
One of our greatest gifts is that we live our life with a consciousness that is unique to the human experience.
Other forms of life live without the depth of consciousness that humans have. We consciously interact with our journey through life. Throughout our life we constantly make both conscious and unconscious choices.For example, we as humans consciously and unconsciously have interactions with our thoughts, our physical body, our actions and our emotions. There is no doubt that Reiki enhances that conscious connection.
With the advent of this enhanced energetic time we have learnt that we have opportunities to make choices to shift our thoughts and live our lives with a more Optimistic attitude and Clearer vision of our choices.
… bring personal empowerment to our lives
… enliven hope to our heart
… heal that which no longer serves us
… show us how to offer support to others in healthy and sound ways
… illuminate the vision we have for ourselves and our journey through life
… support us to live more peaceful lives and flourish within our opportunities
Reiki With Gill
offers you a
gentle and supported
pathway of healing
In many ways our survival is related to the concept that change brings with it uncertainty… that uncertainty can be quite uncomfortable and often brings fear.
Fear can bring with emotional, mental and physical reactions that are associated with Fight, Flight, Freeze and Submit responses.
Many years ago I learnt this philosophy … when the fear of staying the same is greater than the fear associated with change … we will then have the motivation to allow and pursue change.
Our spirit … which is open to the potential and possibility of our life and opportunities, supports us to embrace change.
Our ego … which holds onto surviving life with what is familiar, supports us to resist change.
As we experience life with a conscious connection to our consciousness, particularly with Reiki healing as a part of our journey, we have the opportunity to live with our Spirit and our Ego in balance:
We have the opportunity …
to live a more harmonious life
to embrace change
to feel more connected
to live with deeper peace
to release that which no longer serves us
to overcome obstacles with greater ease
We have the opportunity to heal.
Learning Reiki brings us the opportunity to offer ourselves and others these
(and so many more)
experiences in life!!!
It’s Time to Heal!!!
If you have been experiencing Reiki Healing … maybe look making an appointment for your next Reiki Master Healing …. or even consider learning Reiki One ….
Reiki One offers a beginning to this wonderful journey of healing and opportunity.
Reiki Two and Reiki Two Extension expand our energetic connection to the healing frequency of Reiki and offer healing skills that enhance the healing we are able to offer others as well as the healing we can offer ourselves.
Reiki Master Healing Practitioner training opens a pathway of offering healing to others with the Master resonance. This training is a pre-requisite for Reiki Master Teacher training.
Reiki Master Teacher training presents the opportunity to learn the skills to teach Reiki to others and align them with Reiki Healing energy.
Please feel free to call me to discuss how you can best take the next step with your Reiki healing journey at The Healing House.
The Healing House offers many opportunities for you
to consciously connect with your healing journey and choices in
healthy and optimistic ways.
Hope to see you soon ..
Sending you love light and many blessings,
When I first started teaching Reiki and offering Reiki Healing, I had been introduced to the concept that our healing experience was one where we peeled off ‘Onion rings’ of doubt, fear and beliefs that no longer serve us. It was understood that this created the new opportunities for a new way of being for us.
The general consensus within the world of energetic healing was quite ‘black and white’… and very outcome focused. With that focus, we place a lot of expectations and pressures on ourselves our healing and our evolution.
Healing back then was still linked to the energies and perceptions of the ‘Power Chakra Age’ … also known as ‘The Piscean Age’.
Healing in the 21st century is aligned with the ‘Heart Chakra’. It is softer, more flowing and gentle. The vision of our healing journey is now seen as being more like an experience within a spiral.
This vision can bring a profound sense of expectancy and optimism within our healing experience and within life itself. There is far less pressure to achieve and have more acceptance of the challenge of integrating change and allowing the new reality within our lives that comes with that change.
Here at The Healing House, I encourage each of us on our pathway of healing with Reiki as the cornerstone, to relax into our journey of healing.
Sometimes we will flow towards the centre of the Spiral, which represents the light of our authentic self. Other times we will be flowing away from the centre of the spiral re-connecting with, and re-visiting beliefs and behaviours that are familiar, despite the fact that they may no longer serve us.
Reiki supports us to be in harmony and balance within or life and experience a deeper sense of peace as we release that which no longer serves us.
Reiki Healing with the image of the spiral offers us the opportunity to be gentle with ourselves and we journey through life.
In my early 30’s I was fortunate to meet a wise woman who taught me …
Those words lay a foundation of my own healing journey and journey through life. They are at the core of the opportunities for support and healing that I offer with The Healing House.
This is a wonderful time of healing. I am blessed to have Reiki In my life and feel a deep sense of humility to offer healing and support to those who find their way to The Healing House.
There is so much to learn and experience within life with Reiki Healing in the 21st Century … The beginning of the ‘Heart Chakra Age’ … ‘The Age of Aquarius.’ This time offers us the opportunity to feel the peace and calmness that aligning with our authentic self brings.
Wishing you love, light and many blessings within each day.
It’s Time to Heal!!
I hope to see you at The Healing House soon.
I am so grateful to have brought Reiki into my life … a decision that opened up a whole new world for me.
I am so delighted that I have found the courage, empowerment and trust to persist and consciously align with Reiki and my personal healing journey.
Without the energetic connections that Reiki Healing has, and continues to awaken within me, my recent experiences through the Outback to visit Uluru and Alice Springs would have been very different.
I embraced the land, the colours, the aromas, the textures, the sky, the warmth of the Sun, the brilliance of the stars. I undertook the journey choosing to consciously enliven my senses.
It was wonderful to Simply Be with all of my senses and embrace my intuition and guidance.
I have returned with a new Mantra for myself.
Embracing the Mantra is one of the key gifts of my trip.
I LOVE IT!!!
The Mantra is … Simply Be
I have heard this Mantra, and variations of it many, many times in the past.
Yes, I have heard it previously… the difference for me this time is that I now feel it!!
I am so very grateful for the opportunity to experience Simply Be with my hands resting gently on the surface of Uluru and in the Red Sands of Mother Earth.
I savoured those moments and embraced it through all of me…
particularly within my heart.
Simply Be is with me and within me.
I’m feeling it, breathing it, connecting with it,
allowing it and embracing it.
AND NOW …
I find I am living each day with a deeper sense of peace and acceptance
I feel transformation
I feel renewal
I feel illumination
I feel empowerment
I feel inspiration
I feel grace
I feel love
… may they continue to unfold with ease
… may my life continue to flow with ease
I stood in stillness of sunrise and sunset on the Outback and allowed myself to
It was awe inspiring to truly bathe in the
beauty and brilliance
of each moment.
When I became aligned with Reiki, it became very clear to me that my personal healing was making a huge affirming impact on the way I saw myself and lived my life.
I made the pledge to myself that I would do any thing that was necessary for me to heal. This pledge remains my quest and my gift to myself.
There is no doubt that my life now flows with a deeper sense of ease and grace.
I am not immune to the challenges within life.
My life continues to have its Ebbs and Flows. I experience Joy and Delight, Sadness and Grief, Fear and Uncertainty, Happiness and Contentment. Through it all I continue to embrace my Reiki Healing opportunities … and my connection with love and life unfolds.
My journey through the Outback to Uluru and Alice Springs was another wonderful gift that my pledge to myself has given me.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have about
The Healing House
and how I can offer you support and guidance on your personal healing journey with
Reiki as the Key.
Our journey through life is one of constant and continuous evolution… ever unfolding.
Life can flow with grace when we choose to live with a conscious connection to love and illuminate our internal light.
The light of our heart is ignited with the empowerment of Reiki. It brings and enhances a conscious connection to the healing opportunities within our life. May who learn Reiki feel a deeper sense of connection to their lives and purpose.
The brilliance of the light that is inherently within us, can so easily dull and merely glimmer. It is easy to lose our way and to find ourselves wandering through life with little purpose, meaning and direction.
Each of us are drawn to Reiki with different motivations and for different reasons … we are all unique and have our unique relationship with life and our journey through life.
Over the past 21 years Gill has been blessed with the opportunity to bring Reiki into the lives of her clients. She embraces the opportunity to support them on their journey through life with Reiki as the key.
Gill is consciously expanding her awareness’s, understandings and consciousness. Her vision is to not only feeling a deeper sense of personal inner peace, but she is also motivated by the goal of being proactive to have the skills to offer support others who are attracted to her light.
Gill is heading on a journey to Uluru for a two week adventure and workshop in July 2017. She will be enhancing my life through the connections with like-minded women, reconnecting with the grace and beauty of the red earth and the wonder, magnificence and healing that Uluru, the Heart Chakra of our Earth, can offer.
At the time of her alignment as a Reiki Master, Gill made a commitment to herself to see her life as a “comma” and not a “full stop”. She decided to embrace the ever unfolding wonders of, and within her life of all dimensions of her consciousness.
She also made the commitment to her own healing journey and to do whatever was necessary for her personal healing. Her journey through life since learning Reiki hasn’t always been “pretty”, but it has been consistent. Gill knows that it has been well and truly worth it.
Gill is a very different woman to the one she was is 1995 when she attended her Reiki One Class.
There has been more joy and peace, love and acceptance, wisdom and grace flowing within her life than she thought was possible.
And, she have not been immune to the challenges that are a part of the wonder and mystery of the tapestry of life. There have also been many challenges and disappointments, deep sadness and grief, as well as unforeseen betrayals and loss. She has experienced uncertain times within her life since that auspicious weekend.
However, she has found that her conscious connection with Reiki healing energy and its philosophies and wisdom has supported her through the challenging experiences within her life. She has moved through her challenges with more grace and ease than she would have before learning Reiki.
Without a doubt the key to keeping our inner light shining brightly is to maintain a conscious connection with our emotional, mental, physical and spiritual well-being. Reiki can bring us many blessings within our life.
Once we have Reiki in our lives we need to consciously connect with its healing flow to fully embrace the opportunities that the healing energy offers us.
May your life unfold with ease and grace.
Gill has the skills, experience, grace, empathy and compassion to offer you heartfelt support on your healing journey with Reiki..

Last year I posted these five inspirations from butterflies on my Facebook Page ….
I wrote the post after attending a funeral for a friend who absolutely loved butterflies.
During the service where her life was truly celebrated and the celebrant mentioned five opportunities for thought that we can gain from observing the butterfly.
I loved what she shared and it inspired me to prepare this for you.
(These opportunities are derived from an article by
Christina Devereaux PhD,
published in “Psychology Today” in January 2014)
We can learn a lot from nature about this active process of change and transformation as we examine the journey of a a caterpillar during its transition into a butterfly.
With any new start we inevitably must undergo a transition.
Transition can be defined as “a movement, development, or evolution from one form, stage, or style to another.”
The important word to highlight here is movement.
If nothing changes, nothing changes.
In order to come into form, a butterfly develops through a process called metamorphosis that has four stages; each stage is fully dependent on the other.
While change can at times feel painful, if we don’t allow ourselves to go through the all stages of change, we will resist the fact that change is actually inevitable.
We actually cant stay in the same form. resisting the opportunities of conscious change inhibits us from flying free!!
Everything we are taking in will be fuel and nourishment for our new form.
Our opportunity for healing is to live with and expand upon that which serves us… and have the courage to release that which we find … no longer serves us.
During the first stage, the “feeding stage,” the caterpillar’s job is to eat and eat and eat.
It fills itself with nourishment as the food eaten at this time is stored and used later as an adult.
Trust that the process of nourishing yourself with experiences is ultimately feeding your future form—even if the experiences are particularly challenging.
Gaining knowledge and learning skills to live an peaceful and harmonious life nourishes our soul.
Shedding of old patterns are necessary.
As the caterpillar grows, it “splits its skin” and sheds its skin 4 or 5 times.
How valuable to look at this movement as a mandatory process of shedding, expansion, and that this must occur not once but over and over.
We are served to remember that Reiki Healing is
…..”the opportunity for change with love as the key”
“Solitude provides space and time for reflection and internalization.
When the caterpillar is full-grown and stops eating, it becomes a chrysalis.
Depending on the species, the caterpillar may suspend itself under a branch, hide in the leaves or bury itself underground.
During times of transition, we too may need to go“underground” to hibernate and give our body and mind the space to go internal.
What is significant about this stage and important for our own emotional and personal transition is that while visually it may look like nothing is going on, instead, big changes are happening inside.
Special cells that were present in the caterpillar are now growing rapidly. They will become the legs, wings, eyes, and other parts of the adult butterfly. This stage can last from a few weeks, a month, or even longer.
Reiki Healing, Meditation, Conscious Relaxation, Walks Along the Beach or a River, Holidays and even a Weekend Get-away are examples of space and time for rejuvenation.
“Sometimes a “breaking down” must occur in order for restructuring to begin”.
During this phase of rapid internal growth, the caterpillar actually has to “break down its parts” or “liquefy” in order to come into another form.
If we relate this process to some of life’s transitions, it actually means that our body requires a surrendering…. or a metaphorical “melting” into the process.
However, this movement process of letting go of something in order to grab onto something else actually means that for a period of time we may feel like we are holding on to nothing.
We may not consciously identify what is happening to us during times of uncertainty, but our body can sense the change and can have a range of emotional, mental, spiritual and physical reactions.
By looking at the caterpillar’s physical breaking down of form in order for restructuring to happen as a metaphor, it may provide some guidance during these uncertain feelings, normalizing this part as an important stage in the transition.”
It supports us beyond measure, when we are
kind and gentle with ourselves during times of change and transition.
Our body, mind, spirit, heart and soul go through new experiences that can challenge us on our emotional, mental, physical and spiritual sense of well-being.
The more readily we accept the challenges in our stride,
the more peaceful and easy flowing our lives will be.

We can complicate our lives by seeking love and reassurance of our self-worth in ways that give us a short term ‘hit’ of happiness. Some seek that ‘hit’ by always being there to ‘help’ others or by trying to control their environment, family and friends. The ‘hit’ can also be linked with an expectation of a ‘positive reinforcement’ response to the ‘help’ offered to further add to the ‘hit’.
Expelling that amount of energy is exhausting. Many who pursue that pathway end up fatigued, empty, unappreciated and rung out. It is a pathway that can’t be sustained because of the energy that is required constantly seek the ‘hit’.
Connecting with a life of harmony and balance, allowance and peace, compassion and hope create the space for healing and love… and a life with innate feelings of well-being and contentment. It is the space for Self-worth to flourish.
Conscious connection to our breath, and of course Reiki are wonderful pathways to centre and connect with the potential and possibility of love, light and healing within each of us.
As we centre and connect we can get a sense of our unique personal self and personal empowerment and with that comes inner contentment.
Life can then flow with more ease and grace.
When learning Reiki and the Mindfulness Meditation technique that Gill has developed known as Conscious Relaxation we learn to focus on our breath.
We consciously Breathe in Love and Breathe out Peace. This focus supports us to consciously centre ourselves
We have the choice to experience life as a conscious journey. We can consciously live with gratitude and optimism. Conscious living brings a richness that fulfilling and enlivening.
Knowing that we have conscious choices life can flow with more ease and grace. Living a life with a healthy sense of self-worth requires conscious awareness and a willingness to heal… and gee it’s worth it!! … and … It’s Time to Heal!

I am often asked about the significance of a Full Moon and why is there so much attention paid to it each time it comes around.
Here is some information that I have gathered that you may find interesting…
A Full Moon occurs at the mid-point of the 29 day lunar cycle.
During a Full Moon, the Moon is sitting opposite the Sun and is fully illuminated as it reflects the light of the Sun.
At this time with the Moon & Sun on opposite sides of Earth there is a flow and harmonizing experience of the two balancing energies.
The Moon & the Sun emanate energetic frequencies and these energy waves influence the water of the Earth. One of the key factors for life to be sustained upon Mother Earth is the element of water.
We know that…
*The cycles of the moon influence tides of the ocean.
*Water cycles and flows through all ecosystems.
*Organisms all over the Earth need water to survive, water flows through all living things.
With this understanding, just as the tides ebb and flow under the influence of the Lunar Cycle of the Moon, so are all life forms on Earth influenced by the Lunar Cycle as well … including us humans.
The human body comprises of about 70% water, and as a result the Full Moon influences on the flow of water within us.
Since the beginning of time those who offer healing and health care workers have identified that we are influenced by the cycle of the moon – particularly when it is the time of the Full Moon.
For those who offer Reiki Healing, we recognize the importance of experiences of seeing, feeling or sensing water unfolding within a healing opportunity. It represents healing for the emotional dimension of our consciousness.
There are philosophies, understandings, ‘dream-time stories’ and ‘learnings’ that have been passed from generation to generations for thousands of years
…and there are many similarities with these wisdom that is taught in communities all over our planet.
Here are some …
The SUN represents our ‘outer-world’ and is often referred to as “Grand Father Sun”
It relates to our identify, our personality, our ego. It represents how we ‘shine our light’ out into the world, the present moment, masculine archetype expression.
The Sun offers us strength, courage and illuminated insight of the Soul.
The MOON represents our ‘inner world’ and is often referred to as “Grand Mother Moon”
It relates to our hidden emotions and inner most desires. The Moon is seen by some to represent our shadow-self as well as our fears and worries.
The Moon is said to relate to our dreams.
It represents our feelings, our unconscious beliefs, our connection to the past. It aligns with our feminine goddess archetype. The Moon offers us the ability to feel, learn from the past and creatively unlock and express our essence.
At a Full Moon, the energy of the Sun flows at its full potential to the Earth and the full potential energy of the Moon also flows to the Earth at its full potential. This flow is potent for about three days before and three days after a Full Moon.
This can make for a challenging or intense energy interactions that create a very potent energy flow as the Lunar & Solar energies create a Yin and Yang natural harmonic balance.
Our bodies and all our energy fields naturally seek to be in alignment with the harmonizing energies that are flowing our way from the Sun and Moon.
This creates the opportunity for us to release that which “no longer serves us” as we align with and rejuvenate from, the energy flowing our way.
There are benefits in consciously connecting with the energy of the Full Moon. The Full Moon offers realignment as a result of the balancing energies that it represents and offers. After learning Reiki we can offer ourselves Healing to support and harmonize the experience that we have had. This offers harmony to our energetic selves after the releases that may have unfolded and/or consolidate the energies of the Full Moon.
On these occasions we gather as a group and embrace the opportunity
to connect with other similar Circles around the planet
love, light and healing to all whose life-force Mother Earth supports.
While learning Reiki One at The Healing House we look at an acronym of Reiki …
R – responsibility
E – energy
I – intuition
K – knowledge
I – integrity
All of these are of high value and a wonderful way to approach life and love.
Of these probably the most important is “Integrity”
It is one of my core values in life.
Living with integrity supports the flow of love and light and of course healing!!
It supports the journey of our own soul as it aligns with love.
It creates the space for us to walk beside others and offer support rather than wear our “help hat”.
The “help hat” is often worn because it often serves the one wearing it more than the one receiving their help. Wearing the “help hat”can be like a wave of feeling worthy – like a hit of then feeling a lovely and worthwhile person for being a nice person and offering help!!!
There have been times when I have become lost under the influence of a “help hat”.
Some have had a very wide brim ….. and the brim of that “help hat” has shadowed my light, my vision, my health, my confidence, my choices and the flow of my life… and I didn’t see it…..
“If something is too good to be true … be wary … cause it probably is!!”
She was right…
There have been times in my life when I have forgotten her guidance. I have been absorbed by being “helped” and it felt so good – almost too good to be true!!
… and I have ended up feeling empowered, lost, confused and in tears.
I felt low self confidence and very low self esteem. I lost my connection with the light of my soul, my heart and my unique sense of personal direction.
Reiki is at the core of my being thanks to my Mum introducing it to me.
I am so grateful to my courageous, amazing Mum whose wisdom, openness and love continues to influence me and support me even though she passed away in February 1999.
Her love is still with me.
I am grateful to have had the opportunity to share its gifts and support others on their healing journey for so many years.
I am blessed to see lives transform with the love and guidance and approach to Reiki for which I have the deepest respect.
Thanks Mum xxxxx
I wish I had accepted your love more readily and paid more attention to your guidance and wisdom.
“surviving” to “living”
“forcing my life to personal empowerment”
“blame to responsibility”
“disharmony to peace”
….. not all the time … but mostly!!
I now forgive myself for allowing my light to be dulled ….
I choose freedom, I am free
“Aum Mani Padme Hum” …..
“Only out of murky waters can a beautiful lotus grow”
This unified energy flow brings us experiences of balance and healing for our physical, emotional, mental and spiritual dimensions of consciousness.
Reiki is a powerful yet, very gentle energy healing technique.
During a Reiki Healing the body draws upon Universal Life-Force Energy. This flow of energy supports our innate ability to heal.
The healing capacity of Reiki Healing is limitless.
Regular Reiki creates the opportunity for these dimensions of consciousness to be regularly reminded what it is like to be in a state of balance, peace and harmony.
This remembering creates a motivation within us to flow more easily through life rather than in a states of stress.
Do you remember at school when we played with two long skipping ropes? We would swing them in opposite directions.
Imagine we put a third rope into the swinging action. Three ropes swinging in different directions – a bit of a tangled mess.
Now imagine that one of the ropes represent our physical body, one represents our external energetic field, and one our internal energetic field.
Most of us live our lives with these three fields moving like the tangled mess – Reiki Healing brings them into a unified flow.
With the unified flow we feel balanced and in a place of personal well-being. It is in this place where the internal, physical, and external energy fields flow as a unified unit.
This is a place similar to one that people flow to while experiencing Meditation – the added bonus of Reiki is the Universal Life-Force Energy.
Reiki flows to enhance, harmonize and balance the energy of the one receiving the healing. A unique feature of Reiki is that it also offers healing support to the person offering the healing.
Reiki offers us the opportunity for ‘loving’ change with a flow that we can embrace
Please feel free to
with and questions you may have
“It’s Time to Heal!”
Time is passing so very quickly. I remember my Grandmother saying a similar thing and I thought to myself how could that be? But here I am in her paradigm of existence. Funny how that happens.
Time is such an indefinable and discretionary part of our lives.
Time rolls on with the same rhythm. Despite that constant rhythm some hours, days, weeks, months and years seem to take longer than others.
I often find myself pondering time and the power and influence that it has on us.
It is thought that our relationship to time can be tied to our birth. As we come to terms with our human form in our birth process and formative years, we form our terms of reference for life and our survival belief systems.
The healing and teaching that I have been involved with through Reiki has brought forward interesting understandings about the link and devotion we have to those early beliefs. These understandings have given me a sense of personal empowerment, opening up my heart and mind to the potential and possibility of my life.
Before Reiki came into my life, I thought my lot in life was what I was stuck with.
My beliefs tied me to believe that I had to continue with what I had and how I was within this world.
I have learnt that we are a flowing energetic being and the Chakra System is reflective of that within our daily lives.
I have developed Chakra Workshops that are very thorough in their content. They open awareness about this vitally important area of our lives and healing.
There are no specific prerequisites to attend “Understanding Your Chakras – The Chakra Workshop” – simply a desire to learn and a willingness to heal.
“Understanding Your Chakras – The Chakra Workshop” is the prerequisite for “The Advanced Chakra Workshop”
Please contact me if you would like more information – or to reserve your place.
It’s a great workshop – some who have completed in recent years have described it as life-changing. You can contact me on 0407 561 607 or send me an email through the Contact Form
Its Time to Heal!
Let’s Celebrate Life.
With love, light and many blessings,
We all have choice around change. Having choice can bring us hope.
We can choose to connect with change with love or with fear. I have found that there are always two ways at looking at situations that are before us in our lives. We can look at our situation from a perspective of gloom and pain or from a perspective of challenge, hope and opportunity.
I am observing that more and more of us are looking at what we would like to see happen in our lives and in our world rather than what we don’t want to see.
This attitude is creating an opportunity for attraction of that which we choose to have in our lives and with that a sense of inner calm and peace and optimism.
We are realizing that continuous fear and pain and anger and anguish don’t serve us. We are realizing that if we approach life from that perspective well, that is what we attract into our world.
I am observing that more and more of us are willing to live life with more and more respect for ourselves, our World and each other.
Sure there are many who don’t “get it” but if I were to focus on them I wouldn’t be noticing and celebrating those who are “getting it!”
We are changing our appreciation of food and its value, influence and impact on our life. Our appreciation of the Earth is changing. What was once considered as radical scuttlebutt is now high on the conservative social agenda.
Those who were once skeptical are standing up to listen. Natural Therapies like Reiki were once shunned and considered to have no or little value.
Now more and more people are opening their eyes to the great benefit of changing our approach to health and well-being. There is more interest in Natural Therapies, Organic Food and Conservation. more are aware of the benefits they can bring to each individual and the wider community as a whole.
A few years ago I saw a television program that was highlighting the journey of a surgeon who was diagnosed with a cancerous, life threatening tumour on his brain.
The irony of his story is that when he was diagnosed he was a highly regarded surgeon supporting and operating on patients with cancer at a major hospital in NSW.
Watching his story fascinated me. There he was going through a journey that he had witnessed so many times before. And one of his comments in particular fascinated and inspired me and gave me hope.
He was talking to one of his fellow doctors who was asking for feedback of his journey as a patient.
One of his comments that I heard that made my heart sing. He said that he believed it would serve the hospital to be more open minded to the positive influence of alternative therapies. He suggested they could offer support to patients during their treatment.
There was a gift for many through this surgeon’s very challenging and horrific situation. The hospital staff listened to him and now they may be more willing to open the door of alternative health to support for patients of the hospital.
The love and respect that the hospital staff felt for this man created an opportunity for change. These changes will ultimately support many who are unwell. They will also support those who support them as they experience their disease and recovery.
Life can be a journey of wonder, mystery and delight if we are willing to see it that way.
It is so much more fun and easier than seeing the world as a place of pain and disharmony.
May you be willing to enliven your spirit. Allow your spirit to dance with delight at the possibility and adventure that each day may bring. ‘Cause then it just might!
With love, light and many blessings
When I first started my journey of connection with my spiritual essence, I was loved, offered guidance and supported by some very wise Older Women.
They suggested many wonderful healing opportunities and ideas that would guide me to a deep and powerful connection with my Higher Self, my Essence, Me. One of these suggestions was to take a few minutes at the start of each day to connect with Me.
They told me that I would benefit from taking time to focus on my personal healing, give gratitude for my life, my support and the gifts of abundance that I enjoy around me.
My life was in a bit of a mess – well actually a lot of a mess and I was eager and ready for change. So each day with enthusiasm and sincerity I would do as they said – and yes, indeed, my life beagn to change and I felt a strong connection to my Spirtual Self – just as they said I would.
I felt better within myself and certainly more connected not only to my Spiritual Self, but also to my life!
Well, then, because things were rolling along well, I became, busy and I became complacent and I began to take the gifts in my life a bit for granted and my practice of self reflection fell away.
My life seemed to roll along ok – but it was only reaching a level of ok!
One fateful day I was feeling unwell and ‘out of sorts’ so I took some time for myself to rest. I gave myself a Reiki. In my mind’s eye I saw those beautiful Older Women and I remembered the Unconditional Love that they shared with me and I remembered their guidance to connect with ‘Me’ each day.
I had enough motivation to create the discipline to take a little time each day to once again for connection. Injust a few days I moved from being just ok to once again, feeling connected to my sense of wholeness.
My morning time of connection is now a precious part of each day. I allow time every morning for me. …. Reiki, Meditation, expressions of Gratitude, Affirmations and my day has begins.
Having spent conscious time with ‘Me’ I am then ready to spend conscious time with others.
Everyone hastheir own personal circumstances and it’s not always easy to put time aside – but, if you can find a way to bring some personal time into your day – I can guarantee you will begin to feel the benefits in your life. And what we have found is that as a result, those around you will benefit as well.
You can get started with as little as ten minutes – see if you can give it a go – and see what happens. All you have to loose is ten minutes! – And there is so much to gain!
I feel so blessed to have had the support and guidance from those Wonderful Women. I share this small part of their amazing wisdom with you with the hope it may enhance your life as it has mine.
As they supported me, I look forward to supporting you on your journey and wish you love, light and many blessings along the way.
After attending a Reiki Workshop we become aligned with Reiki Energy Healing. We can hen reach out to others and offer healing with an approach that is simple, safe, gentle and harmonious. We can offer that same opportunity to ourselves each and every day.
Learning Reiki and receiving regular Reiki healings supports the harmonizing and balancing of our energy fields.
With the hectic lives that we live it is very easy to lose a sense of self. In this busy-ness we can feel tired – sometimes exhausted, low on energy and generally “Out of Whack!”
With the regular flow of Reiki in our lives we have the opportunity to live with an increased sense of inner peace, inner acceptance, and healing.
This regular reinforcement supports the opportunity for us to live our lives with a greater sense of vitality, clarity and vision for our health, inner peace and well-being.
During a healing our internal, physical, and external energy fields connect and flow together with balance and harmony.
Healing with Reiki flows to our Emotional, Mental, Physical, and Spiritual selves bringing a sense of harmony, well-being and peace. We can feel energised and focused.
Give Gill a call if you would like to receive a Reiki Master healing or if you would like to learn Reiki.
Experience the wonder of healing with Reiki and having the skills for healing in your life.

Earlier this year about 20 women who come along to The Healing House travelled to a Retreat at Bacchus Marsh for a weekend of healing together. We connected with a Sacred Circle that we have created in the bush. It is such a beautiful Sacred Circle of Healing.
The trip away enhanced our appreciation of ourselves as individuals and created great friendships with each other. As a group, we have also embraced the opportunity to connect with Mother Earth with a collective consciousness of healing.
We experienced a two days of connection, great company, healing, good food, healing, meditation and celebration. over the weekend, we also sent healing to our loved ones and healing to all whose life-force Mother Earth supports.
Each Year we gather to energetically connect with like-minded people all over our planet to celebrate and offer healing to humanity and Mother Earth. This time is known as the time of “Wesak”.
Wesak is celebrated on the full moon after Easter and is recognized within celebrations of the birth of Buddha. There are three phases of Wesak. The three phases are held over the three full moons of April, May and June each year.
We connect with Wesak each year and energetically join others all over this amazing planet to celebrate Mother Earth.
As a part of those celebrations, we gathered again and connected with Mother Earth at a Sacred Earth Circle that we have created in the sand dunes at a beach near Geelong. We first created this Sacred Circle in 2008.
I had chosen an area to create the Sacred Circle and when we journeyed there to create the space, to our amazement and delight, prior to us arriving someone had placed Tibetan prayer flags along the fence.
This showed us that this place had been used by others for healing ceremony of some sort as well.
How wonderful, that this space on a remote part of a beach near Geelong was evolving into a shared place of healing.
While creating the Earth Healing Circle, we felt a sacredness. There was an intensity of beautiful healing energy when it was completed.
Over the years Prayer Flags have appeared from time to time – How wonderful!!
The Circle remains with a beautiful healing energy that can take your breath away. We connect with The Sacred Earth Healing Circle throughout each year. It is a wonderful and very sacred place.
When we move out of rhythm for an extended period of time, we tend to feel discomfort and experience disharmony in our bodies and in our lives. We seem to have an unhealthy need for immediacy.
As time rolls by it seems our lives can easily become more complicated and confused. We seem to have a need for things to happen quicker and to have responses at our whim and desire.
Change happens with ease when we allow it to unfold gradually. If we force change, it is rare that anything close to ease happens for us!!
My observation of healing over these past years has lead me to believe and understand that change from that which no longer serves us, is a rhythmical process. When we allow that rhythm to unfold we experience wonderful healing… with healing comes peace, contentment and harmony.
Reiki allows us the time and space to view our lives from a different, and generally, simpler perspective.
Our lives respond well when we allow positive influences in our lives to flow with a rhythm. For example, we feel better when we have regular sleep, regular meals, regular exercise, regular water, regular work and holidays.
The Journey of Mother Earth is one of rhythm. Connection to rhythm is a natural part of the journey of all whose life force is supported by Mother Earth – including the oceans, the birds, all creatures, the trees and flowers.
Mother Earth has her own rhythm with the Sun and the Moon.
I have observed that when we allow the rhythm of time and space for personal healing – we seem to have more time and space! – and we experience a flow within our lives.
We can allow change with our attitudes and beliefs with love for the process, rather than fear of the resulting changes within and around us.
When changes in life unfold gradually, we feel more peaceful, greater harmony and deeper contentment. We have the space to come to terms with the transition.
I would like to encourage you to allow yourself the gift of rhythm in your life. I can guarantee that if you create a rhythm of Reiki healing, you will enjoy the benefits in every area of your life.
Wishing you love and light within each day
We generally face change with an undercurrent of fear.
We tend to feel fearful of the unknown that the impending change may bring.
There is a deep fearful part within us, (our Ego), that resists change because from the Ego’s perspective, we are surviving with things the way they are, ‘They are familiar: We are surviving …so, why change!”
Even when we sense that behaviours or beliefs are not a healthy way of life or for our greatest benefit, we can hold on. We make deals with ourselves or enter into justifications why we need to hold on and not move away from that which is familiar.
We can reject kindness and support and take it as criticism to justify an Ego based belief that we have held onto as a part of our personal and familiar approach to survival.
It is hard work maintaining those beliefs.
Holding on puts a strain and feelings of dis-ease on us… emotionally, mentally, physically and spiritually.
In many ways we are hard-wired to resist change. It is challenge for us as we live our lives because change is actually a constant within us every moment of every day.
Reiki offers us the keys to connect with life consciously and move from Surviving within our life to Living this life. We can embrace life with more Grace and Ease and Peace and a deeper sense of Personal Harmony.
I have found Reiki to be a wonderful support within my life and I have been blessed with the opportunity to support many clients to live with more clarity and consciousness and peace… with Reiki as the key.
The shift form Surviving to Living is one of the greatest gifts we can give ourselves.
My Mother attended her Reiki One in May 1992. I saw the healing that Reiki brought to her life … and for my young dog Squizzy after Mum offered her Reiki. Those healing changes were key motivations for me to look closely at Reiki. I eventually attend Reiki One in April 1995.
Twenty years on, Reiki has been a wonderful gift that I have given myself.
Most importantly, I am willing to take action, conscious action. Sometimes the changes that I pursue are uncomfortable and challenging for my Ego.
With Reiki in my life I move forward with my Spirit enlivened. My eyes see the pathway forward more clearly.
I connect with Reiki Healing each day and embrace the many gifts that Reiki opens my eyes to see.
Perhaps the greatest gift is a relationship with myself and with that more heartfelt and wholesome relationships with others… relationships with Love rather than Fear as the foundation.
May Peace Prevail in your Heart
As we begin each New Year it is is a perfect opportunity for new beginnings, new hope, greater clarity, vision and new goals.

This wonderful day of connection and healing!!!
What an amazing time for us with wonderful opportunities for personal growth, personal awakening, and personal healing.
As we journey through life we attract opportunities for conscious change into our lives – and if that part of us that is ready for change is engaged – off we go – the journey of healing and connection with self begins to unfold!
When Reiki first appeared in my life, I was far from ready to embrace it. I resisted it, pushed it away, and denied the healing that I saw happening around me. I desperately held on to my crazy fear based life – despite the fact that it wasn’t unfolding all that well! Thank heavens I finally surrendered and embraced the healing that Reiki offers.
I don’t know where I’d be without Reiki in my life. For most of my life I thought my existence was ‘my lot in life’ – how wrong could I have been!
Connecting with the gifts of healing, harmony, and awakening that Reiki brings has opened my eyes, mind, and heart to a whole new world of wonderful experiences, emotions, and connections.
I am so fortunate to have survived living my life through eyes of fear, doubt, indecision, anxiety, depression, and judgement. And now – wow! What a polarity!
I now choose to embrace my life, feel my emotions, and have no regret for the path that I have walked in the past. I now understand that my walk through life with so much restriction and visions of gloom, survival, and darkness has laid a foundation for me to totally embrace this new vision of hope, connection, forgiveness, gratitude, and optimism.
If I were to live my life with regret for the times of disenchantment and darkness, I would be held in the chains of my past and my pain.
I now understand that throughout my life I could only live with what I knew … and now, as I walk my path with Reiki healing, I have connected with loving and ‘living’ skills that were within me, all the time – waiting for me.
My life now, has more meaning. I now see, feel, experience and ‘be‘within my life more than I ever knew was possible.
I am so grateful that I connected with a group of women who were willing to take me under their wing. They guided, loved, and supported me out of my darkness and gloom.
A recent study showed that we live happier lives if we regularly connect with a group who we feel accept us.
This is what these women were to me! And because of my experience, this is what The Healing House offers with opportunities for connection with Reiki Workshops and Meditation Circles, Retreats, and Reiki Healing Circles .
With Reiki as the key, my life is opening and expanding and flowing with more grace and joy than I could possible have imagined. A balance between my heart and mind is bringing me a profound connection with myself, with others and with my purpose. I am so very grateful to have Reiki in my life – it is an amazing healing opportunity!
Learning Reiki back in 1995 was the stimulus to move me from surviving each day with fear as my best friend. And now, well now – chalk and cheese.
I live each day knowing and feeling a connection between my heart and mind, a connection between my consciousness and my feet upon the Earth and a connection between myself and those around me.
May you find your pathway to live your life with a sense of inner peace and acceptance that fills your heart with joy.
Wishing you love, light, healing, and many blessings
I have been reflecting on the amazing opportunities that life brings for us.
Before Reiki came into my life I seemed to just go about my life from day to day. Sure, from time to time I had goals but so often the journey seemed meaningless. I had read quite a few books about personal growth. they lead me to look at different approaches to spirituality and personal growth but never quite felt satisfied.
The approach that Reiki gave me was simple – by choosing to connect with Universal Life-Force energy on a regular basis, my life could have more health, focus, harmony and meaning.
And it is working for me. Reiki has had an enormous positive impact in my life.
And, I am in the fortunate position of seeing great change and growth in the lives of those who also choose to heal with Reiki.
Healing is a very interesting process. Sure it is not always easy but it is worth it. Belief systems that I have held about myself and how I fit into the world have been challenged. And now, I am so grateful that they have been challenged and reassessed.
I am in a continuous process of allowing a wider view of life to unfold before me. With this wider view I am feeling a greater sense of purpose, trust, love, acceptance and peace.
Change is something that we resist, despite the fact that it is constantly in our lives. Every day every living thing on Earth changes. We all grow and change in some way. Change is inevitable. It is our attitude to the change that determines how peaceful or otherwise our life unfolds.
I am so grateful that I accepted the opportunity to learn Reiki and that one day at a time. I am willing to continue my Reiki journey of healing and learn to embrace change.
I have come to believe that everyone who is attracted to Reiki has brought into their lives an opportunity that is unique to them. It seems that a common outcome for those who continue to heal with Reiki, is to live a more harmonious, healthy, focused and meaningful life.
How often are you taking time for yourself and your own healing? Are you willing to heal with Universal Life-Force
energy and take advantage of the unique opportunity that Reiki presents for you? Do you take time to reflect on the gifts that you have in your life?
Maybe it is time for you to look at Reiki and the gifts that it has for you and those around you.
My wish is that you be at peace with your journey.
Sending you love, light and many blessings
In 2012, we entered one of the most significant energetic times for Humanity, Mother Earth, and all Life force she supports. During that time we began flowing with and beginnng to settle into the Heart Chakra time for Humanity, and the Heart Chakra time for the Earth.
The energetic flow into the Heart Chakra of both Humanity and the Earth brings forward an opportunity for us to connect with our healing journey. This brings a more conscious way of living.
In recent times, Humanity has begun relating to Mother Earth, each other, and all other forms of Life-force that Mother Earth supports with more respect and consciousness.
I have come to understand that humanity will continue and magnify this growing respect and the energy of gratitude will grow. This represents an alignment with the flow of healing “Yin” energy.
Whenever there is movement towards love, respect, and gratitude, there will also be movements of a contrary nature flowing as well. This is the flow of “Yang” energy.
The contrary flow is of “Yin” is highly likely, actually highly probable. Tthere is always a resistance to change. All forms of Life-force that Mother Earth supports, including Humans, place a strong emphasis on survival. There is always Fear, of some sort, associated with change.
Our drive for survival motivates us to resist change and maintain focus on doing what we have always done.
We are driven by an unconscious belief that says – If I do something different – I may not survive. If I keep things the same, well, then I will survive … I’ve survived up until now – haven’t I?
As more of us, who focus on the benefits of “living” life upon Mother Earth with balanced Heart energy, the more we will support Humanity living upon the Earth with a balance between “Yin” and “Yang”.
There are many opportunities to look at what isn’t happening with love and fairness in our world – there are also many opportuniites to pay attention to the wonder and delightful experiences that do surround us.
It is so very important that we have awareness of our surroundings. It is also very important that we connect consciously with or own fight and flight responses to the world around us.
We can sit back and be critical of things that enrage us or we can look at ways to be pro-active. We have the opportunity to make conscious decisions that will influence our lives and the lives of those we love and care for, in optimistic and affirming ways.
The Heart Chakra Age is our opportunity to heal our limiting fear based beliefs and to step forward with love, consciousness, and clarity as our guide.
This wonderful time enhances our opportunity to bring balance and harmony within ourselves – healing our personal ‘Yin” and “Yang” energies. AHHH – maybe even, having more fun, delight and joy in our lives!!!
Reiki Healing Energy is
As we embrace this time of transformation, I would like to encourage you to embrace this heightened opportunity for healing – and maybe even take the pledge that I did for myself many years ago –
This pledge that I made to myself. It has opened up so many wonderful opportunities for me. I now have a loving and nurturing relationship with myself, and those around me. I see the world through very clear eyes and approach my challenges with a more harmonious heart and mind.
Sometimes I feel like I need to pinch myself to believe this is the same me! It is so great to live with the me, that has been waiting for me!
Thanks heavens for this age of healing and thank heavens for Reiki.
There are many opportunies to connect with healing at The Healing House.
Wishing you love, light, healing, and many blessings,
