Coaches, caregivers, energy healers, facilitators and teachers, like you, want to make a difference. You have the tools to make the changes you want to make in your life, but when it comes to taking next steps, you sometimes feel stuck dealing with overwhelm and exhaustion.
If this sounds like you, you just might be an Empath (someone who can feel other's emotions as if they are their own). You're great at attuning to others' needs, but can easily forget your own. As a result, aside from feeling overwhelmed and stressed, you may notice...
Hello! I'm Kelly, founder of Whole-Self Wisdom Coaching. After burning out from 20+ years in the corporate world and a few years of highs and lows starting a coaching business, I became a family caregiver. It wasn't until then that I realized the extent to which I unintentionally took on others' emotions. When you add in the physical, mental, and spiritual aspects of caregiving on top of continuing to meet others’ emotional needs (before one's own), you learn that it’s just not sustainable.
All of the training—life coaching, mind-body/somatic coaching, shamanic healing, Trauma & Tension Release Exercise (TRE)—had prepared, and supported, me for my caregiving initiation; however, after my mother passed away, I learned that my adrenaline and cortisol levels were on fumes, I'd gained 25 pounds, and the fatigue made it difficult to feel inspired and market my services. Really, I just needed to be held, to rest, and do nothing.
Fortunately, I came across a cacao ceremony where the host shared the healing, nourishing energy of Reiki as well as details about the training she offered. I intuitively knew that I wanted to pursue Reiki Master certification, and found that the training gave me several opportunities to relax my nervous system and gain confidence in my ability to hold space for others.
Now is the perfect time to care for yourself— so your body can heal, so you can flow with your life's purpose, and so you can connect with those who resonate most with your most expansive dreams. One way to do this is with Reiki.
Reiki is a method of spiritual healing available to anyone open to receiving this loving energy. The practitioner, having undergone attunement by a Reiki Master, channels energy from the universe with the intention of empowering the client's own self-healing capabilities.
The "ki" part of reiki means the life force energy within everyone and everything. The "rei" part of reiki, as translated in the Japanese language, means spirit, higher power, or spiritual consciousness that connects everything. In summary, reiki healing is a method of tapping into the universal reiki energy and using it to strengthen the energy within yourself, or others.
The more you feel safe feeling good, the more you'll feel safe to receive (inspiration, support, love, prosperity...)
A Reiki session offers a safe space to relax your nervous system. A practitioner who is attuned to the healing energy of Reiki can hold a space for energetic blocks to dissolve so that the self-healing process can take please more efficiently and effectively.
Currently, all of my Reiki sessions are offered over Zoom.
10 Min: We'll start with a chat to confirm your intention. Intention re-affirms that self-healing is always taking place and that the client is empowered to ask for the support needed and to take steps to care for themselves. As the practitioner, my role is to create and hold a space for healing to occur. Both client and practitioner are joined by their guides (in the invisible realms) to support us with our intentions.
45 Min: As you sit back, or lay down, in a comfortable spot, I'll radiate Reiki to your energy centers (chakras). Some sessions will focus on each chakra for a few minutes, while other sessions will focus on specific areas depending on your intention and where I'm guided intuitively. For remote sessions, I hold a crystal in place of laying my hands on you during an in-person session.
5 Min: To conclude, I'll check-in with you to see how you're feeling, and review ways (intuited during the session) in which you can continue to support your intention on your own/in between sessions.
Choose from the options below, and I'll send you a link to schedule your first session. Alternatively, if you have any questions before making a decision, you may schedule a free discovery call (see next section).
"I've noticed I like to look at myself now. During a Zoom session, I was like, ‘Who is that on the screen? She is beautiful! There I am! That’s me!' It feels easier to look at pictures of myself from when I was younger. I don’t get so triggered and judgy. I just hold little me in a bright, brilliant golden light a little more often now. My heart softens towards her."
"We moved our horses from the boarding stable to our next door neighbor's, then began creating a pasture at our place. This involved hauling countless wheelbarrow loads of wood, rock, manure and dirt uphill for several months, and then my horse fell on top of me. This all took a toll on my knee! Although x-rays said everything looked okay, I hurt. Nothing I was doing (using a knee brace, hiring some help, using Arnica, etc.) was changing things. I felt sad, and discouraged to think I might have to give up my dream of having the horses here with us. After one Reiki session with Kelly, I finally felt relief for the first time in 18 months. I believe this WILL heal. Thank you so much Kelly! I feel so hopeful!"
