A huge part of wellness starts internally. My mantra is ‘health is wealth’, however, my health involves my mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being. Just as I balance my chakras on a regular basis, balancing my 4 corners is of vital importance.
Juggling the four can make you feel exhausted, driving you to feel like you’re on a one-wheel bike trying very hard not to fall or drop your marbles. Getting that balance right is important because if you focus too much on your physical and neglect your emotions, you could find yourself isolated and withdrawn.
Therefore, I am so grateful for modern wellness techniques and the amazing ways it puts the power back in our hands and teaches us how to live better. I remember the first time I had an energy cleansing done, I cried non-stop for an hour, because for the first time in a while, I could finally breathe.
Not that ‘phew’ feeling of relief but the waiting to exhale and let it all out feeling. That night, I slept like a baby, my so-called insomniac episodes were a distant memory, and I could finally hear my thoughts again. It truly was a de-cluttering moment.
Once again, as your self-appointed wellness guru, I have found six Reiki and Energy Masters who are unique, amazing and changing the game.
1. Dana Child
I came across Dana while doing research for something else and I remember thinking about how calm her aura was. Dana’s healing life resembles the ‘Eat, Pray, and Love’ story. After climbing the corporate ladder to the highest building, she found herself feeling like a misfit and decided to give it all up and move to India, where she reconnected with herself.
Dana holds a degree in psychology, which allows her to delve deeper into the human aspect of what motivates and inspires individuals. She is the author of a book titled ‘Chakras, Food and You: Tap Your Individual Energy System for Health, Healing and Harmonious Weight’ which is co-authored with her colleague, Cyndi Dale.
She also has a Master’s in Educational Administration and Leadership. She combines her academic knowledge with her intuition to help individuals balance their minds, body, soul, and relationships. While in India, she studied Thai massage, to complement her yoga teaching certification. Baliana Taksu, crystal healing, past life regression, mediumship, and shamanic practices earned her an Indian Holistic Medical Degree.
People have described her work as ‘magic’ and ‘an energetic DMT experience’. Her ability to help people in releasing what weighs them down is what makes her amazing at her work.
2. Frank Butterfield
Finding male Reiki masters is like finding a needle in a haystack. They do exist and some of them are doing amazing work helping heal and revive masculine energy. One of those healers happens to be Frank Butterfield, owner of Communion of Light.
Frank is a reiki master who communicates the message of what he refers to as the Communion of Light. Speaking with a voice known as Paul, This Communion of Light is a place where you can remember that you do indeed create your reality.
A session with Frank is beneficial to anyone feeling overwhelmed, distressed, or confused in general. Most people have said that they usually feel a sense of clarity and reassurance after meeting with him.
Besides being a master reiki healer and medium, Frank Butterfield is also the author of several books that help towards empowering you and set you on a new wellness journey.
3. Jasmin Harsono
Jasmin Harsono’s healing statement reads as follows “I guide people to remember and come home to their true self through immersive sensory and healing experiences”. Jasmin is the founder of Emerald and Tiger and has been doing some amazing work for the wellness community.
Being born in London to an Iranian father and an Italian/Welsh mother gave Jasmin the foundation she needed to be the compassionate grounded reiki healer she is. Jasmin is an intuitive wellness guide with 7 years of experience. She is a multi-sensory artist, writer, and author with a degree in Music Media Management.
Jasmin Harsono offers transformational tools and sensory healing experiences through modalities such as breathwork, reiki and sound healing. She fuses the synergies of her life, training and ancient practices to give people experiences and tools to tap into their truth, power, and potential.
Harsono created The Three Diamonds which follow the Japanese energetic system of Earth, Heart and Heaven energy. This healing method uses a combination of breathwork, Reiki, affirmations and sound to offer a unique transformational sensory experience.
Jazmin is passionate about providing wellness to people and ensuring that is it accessible for all. She also provides free meditation classes.
4. Kiki Matoba
Kiki Matoba wants us to be gentle and kind to our hearts and minds. What drew me to her page is how calming her energy felt. She smiles with her entire face and makes you feel safe. Kiki is an intuitive guide who uses energy medicine to help empaths and compassionate people to release negativity while experiencing deep relaxation and peace.
Matoba is a reiki master with additional certifications in meditation, crystal healing, chakra balancing and sound healing. She has been serving people from all over the world for the past 10 years. Helping them transform their energies while empowering them to live happier and healthier lives.
What should you expect from a session with Kiki? Well, expect to be guided into a relaxed state through breathwork, body scanning as well as visualised grounding and receiving. You should also expect sound-healing music that will channel your energies and frequencies. That is the moment when whatever you need the most for your highest good comes through sensations, images, feelings and presence.
It was one of those insomnia-filled evenings when, for some odd reason, I found myself on YouTube. That is when I met Jeannina, affectionately known as JJ by those who follow her. She was giving me a general card reading about something I was experiencing, and our bond began there.
Jeannina is the reason I started being active on Instagram, that is where I found other healers and Reiki masters. Remember that what you seek is always seeking you. Her energy was compassionate, calm, soothing, safe and warm.
She has a familiar embrace to her like a loving sister, mother, or friend that reminds you of home. She is all about helping the collective through tarot and energy healing. Jeannina is a professional tarot reader, a reiki master and a spiritual coach with a degree in Social and Behavioural Sciences.
Jeannina believes that the universe has a way of guiding us through our lives with the help of spiritual guides. Her focus is on bringing awareness and healing through love and teaching. Her readings offer empowerment and guidance to get you through challenges and changes in life.
6. Laura Peppin
Laura Peppin encourages you to make the session your own. She is all about empowerment and listening to what your body requires at that moment. Laura believes that three things are needed to support the creative process of well-being: time, a safe space and a loving witness.
Regarding time, Laura feels that none of us ‘have enough time’ and we allow the concept of time to rule us. The trick is to get into the practice and belief that we can create time to slow down for ourselves. In terms of the safe space, Laura advocates that it is needed physically and energetically for the work to take place. Lastly, a loving witness is someone that has no judgement and provides support in the form of time, safe and recognition of your process without interference.
Laura believes that you are in charge and control of your well-being and that reiki is something to consider when life gets too busy. Reiki is also perfect for times when you feel you have lost orientation or connection with your sense of joy and creativity.
These are just a few of the amazing reiki and energy masters around the globe. There are still so many other great ones that are out there waiting for you to discover them. If you are still on the fence regarding energy cleansing or reiki like my friend, speak to a reiki master, ask questions, and let your heart lead the way to a world of wellness and healing.
