Hi, my name is Julie! Welcome to Jiva Reiki School. I am an Usui Holy Fire Reiki Master Teacher, Certified Yoga Instructor, and an organic and health food enthusiast.
I started Jiva Reiki School to educate people, specifically youth and young adults on Reiki. My Reiki story goes a little something like this…..
I had a hard time growing up: I always felt uncomfortable and insecure. I couldn’t look people in the eye. I was scared to talk to new people. I never felt like my voice or opinion mattered and I felt like I was always a victim and never had any power over my life. For a long time in my life, I thought this was normal because I didn’t know anything else. I had a lot of family problems and let society influence me greatly.
Then one day, when I was fourteen and really felt like I had given up on life, I met a woman who introduced me to a totally different way of being and thinking.
She taught me the foundation of my Reiki practice and became one of my Reiki Teachers. Reiki transformed me from a sensitive, scared, insecure girl into a confident, healthy, self-assured young woman. I experienced the profound effects Reiki had on me and I wanted to share it with others.
I attended Rutgers University where I shared my passion of Reiki and created a college community of like-minded individuals. I became the first person to do Reiki in the recreation department teaching a Yoga infused Reiki class every week. I started the Rutgers Yoga and Reiki club which offers weekly Reiki meditation, yoga classes, and self-love workshops. I gave a talk at Robert Wood Johnson Medical School to pre-med students on Reiki. I succeeded in spreading Reiki throughout Rutgers and now my passion is to share the healing power of Reiki with all youth and young adults who experienced what I did when I was younger. My goal is to give people a healthy, constructive tool that will help them live happy, healthier lives. Reiki on, Reiki power!
