Understanding the Chakra System has supported my personal healing journey with Reiki
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.
Deeper Understanding and Appreciation of Life
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 are living in a time of energetic change and wonderful opportunities to feel a sense of hope
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.
Our eyes are opening
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.
More open minded to the positive influence of alternative therapies
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
Guidance and Support
Greetings from Gill at The Healing House.
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.
The experience of having Reiki Energy Healing
in our lives is far reaching.
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.
with love and light
Mother Earth Healing with Reiki
and Sacred Earth Healing Circles
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.
Annual Connection for Healing
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.
Sacred Circle in Geelong
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 place ourselves under more and more stress, we move away from the natural rhythm of life
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!!
Reiki presents the opportunity to move away from health issues, thought patterns and behaviours that no longer serve 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.
Regular healthy habits seem to result in heath
and a sense of well-being.
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.
Because of our connection to Mother Earth we also crave rhythm. Our lives respond to rhythm.
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
The definition of healing with Reiki that I now embrace is… “an opportunity for change with love”.
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.
Grace and Ease and Peace
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

This wonderful day of connection and healing!!!
Greetings from Gill
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!
I resisted Reiki
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!
Opened my Eyes
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.
Life has more meaning
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
Universal Life-Force Energy supports change with greater ease
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.
For change to happen there must be change.
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
The Heart Chakra Age
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.
Yin and Yang
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.
“If I always do what I’ve always done,
I’ll always get what I’ve always got!
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”.
“Better to light a candle than curse the darkness.”
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
“The Opportunity for change with LOVE”
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 –
“I will do what ever is necessary for me to heal!”
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,
