Level I is the foundation for all three degrees, and should be mastered first before the person considered for the next level.

In Reiki Level 1 you will learn:

  • History of Reiki

  • Many uses of Reiki

  • Receive Usui Reiki Level 1 certificate

Upon completion of Reiki level 1, students will be able to provide Reiki healing for themselves and others.  This class is kept to a maximum of 4 students to allow for appropriate practice time.  However, I require a minimum of 2 students to hold the class.  To confirm your spot, please book online or make other payment arrangements as as a $50 deposit is required to hold your place.  This deposit is refundable up to seven days prior to the class date or may be used towards another class if you are unable to attend.  You can pay the balance in person through Credit Card, Electronic Money Transfer, cash, or cheque.

There is a $5.00 fee added to the deposit for the Pay Pal fee. I also offer a Pay as You Go plan please contact me if you need a payment arrangement.

At this level the student is permanently attuned and connected to the Reiki source of healing energy. Once initiated it allows a person to perform healing on oneself and others. It requires no special alteration of the thinking process to “turn on the flow” of Reiki. By simply placing the hands and opening the heart to love, one automatically brings in the energy.

Reiki is a simple, natural, safe method of spiritual healing and self-empowerment for all people. Learn how to apply it to others as well as yourself. This level deals with physical issues and connects the practitioner to the Reiki energy and teaches hands-on Reiki

Course includes: Manual, full treatment practice, certificate, self healing meditation, grounding meditation download to your email,  ongoing support and spiritual guidance.  $175.00

Are your elements in balance?

First I want to shout – HAPPY MAY!!!



May is historically a month where the weather here in Alberta is all over the place – I should tell you that thus far this May has been simply amazing– it’s been unseasonally hot, which has been wonderful for our energy and getting out for some much needed sunshine after our winter season.  The downside is that we’ve already seen tragic, devastating out of control fires in Alberta and more recently, BC.

I’m back up and at living life after going through yet another setback with my Chronic Autoimmune issues.  Last time it attacked my kidneys, this time my pancreas. I had a long 2 months of trying to come back into balance and healing.  I’d like to say thank you to all my beautiful friends and family who supported me in this by taking me to appointments when I couldn’t drive, coming out to visit for tea, supportive Facebook messages of love and support and the amazing healing sessions I was blessed with!

I have been feeling pretty darn good the past few weeks and am feeling like my “old” self and will once again be offering Reiki Classes and I have just finished my Warrior Goddess Training (kept my mental state busy while I was physically healing) and will be offering classes later on this summer and fall.

A good portion of the training was learning how to hold our own energy and create our own “Creed”, which is as follows:

I hereby commit to fully embody my warrior goddess self.  From this moment forward, I will do my best to:

No longer abandon myself
Learn to love the beginnings and endings
Treat myself as a Temple
Stay grounded and present
Honor my sassy, sweet fire
Own my strength and vulnerability
Open my heart to all of life
Speak my deepest truths
Listen to the wisdom within
Claim my unique path and walk the Warrior Goddess Way!

If you feel overwhelmed by your crazy life or judge yourself for falling short of perfection, you’ve probably learned to be your own worst critic rather than your own best friend. Warrior Goddess Workshops and classes will share the antidote to the flawed idea that you are not enough. Direct, honest, and unapologetic, Warrior Goddess Workshops and classes will show you how to release the layers of expectations to finally see yourself for the authentic, perceptive, perfect woman you really are.

You can sign up here for upcoming Classes and Workshops this summer!



Truth: I used to have a lot of control issues and I believed that was powerful!

Truth Bomb: Ruling with an iron fist and attempting to control everything and everyone is NOT powerful. It’s exhausting, frustrating and a total waste of precious time.  I found this espcially the truth bomb with my health!

What I have learned through my own healing journey and more with the Warrior Goddess Training I just finished and with clients is that true personal power comes from learning the art of surrendering and practicing non-attachment.

Here are 5 random ways attachment and control gives away your personal power. Can you relate to any of the following?

  • You flip out or at the very least get pissed over people doing things their way instead of the way you want.
  • You’re unwilling to hear and understand someone else’s point of view if it differs from yours.  Talk to the hand.
  • You feel disrespected, pissed off or hurt when someone asks your advice and then does it a different way.
  • You decide to go after a goal or dream and if it doesn’t go your way with ease or grace – so you give up thinking it’s not meant for you.
  • You get hung up on things being or looking one way and have a very hard time allowing things to shift and take new shape in your life.


You might be wondering how this control thing relates to magical living? Well, magically speaking, the “need for control” points to an imbalance of the Elements.

You are made up of 5 Cardinal Elements; AIR, FIRE, WATER, EARTH and SPIRIT.

AIR corresponds to the mental realm and when you have a healthy and balanced relationship with AIR, you call in healthy thoughts and think positively.

FIRE corresponds to the action realm and when you have a healthy and balanced relationship with FIRE, you move towards your desires and are mindful not to burn yourself out (by pushing too hard).

WATER corresponds to the emotional realm and when you have a healthy and balanced relationship with WATER, you enjoy healthy emotions and have the ability to go with the flow in life.

EARTH corresponds to the physical realm and when you have a healthy and balanced relationship with EARTH, you enjoy a feeling of stability/grounded-ness and have the ability to easily manifest your desires into the earthly plane.

SPIRIT corresponds to the heavenly realm and when you have a healthy and balanced relationship with SPIRIT, you enjoy a feeling of peace and because your faith is strong and gratitude flows within you each day.

Anyway your slice it  – failing to learn how to balance the ELEMENTS within you will block and prevent you from living your Warrior Goddess lifestyle.

If this email rang your truth bell, now may be the right time is now to sign up for my upcoming Warrior Goddess classes!  I truly don’t want you to suffer one more minute with the control monster – I remember those days and ocasionally still struggle. Trust me when I say peace, grace, joy and ease feels much better.

Universal Law: Same behavior = Same results. 

Today, we also enter Taurus New Moon energy,  This EARTHY grounded new moon provides us with a potent window for planting your desires in rich, fertile soil.  Be sure to take advantage of this opportunity to put your plans in writing and enjoy your physical body!

New Moon Bath Ritual



At the new moon, our body’s capacity for detoxification is at its highest.
Himalayan salt is the salt of choice for these baths. Not only is it the purest salt available but it also contains 84 elements and minerals that occur naturally in the ocean and earth.  The salt retains the memory of the earth. Just as the ocean reacts to the cycles of the moon, the potency of the salt also reacts to the moon phases.

How To Be A New Moon Bathing Goddess:

Fill the tub with about 3 inches of hot water.
Add 2.5 lbs. of Himalayan Salt to the tub to dissolve. You can swish it around to help it along. I put it in the spice grinder to expedite things.
If you live close to nature, keep the window open so you can hear the wind, rain, owls, crickets, etc. Or, play some soothing music.
While you are waiting for the salt to dissolve, dry brush your skin.
Once the salt is dissolved, finish filling the tub with very warm — but not hot — water. It should be slightly above body temperature {about 97 degrees F}.
Say a prayer or blessing if you’d like.
Bathe for 20-30 minutes, trying to keep as much of your body submerged as possible.
Use this time to dream and envision what you want to manifest during the next 28 days.
Don’t rinse OR towel off! And don’t apply any lotion, cream, oil or deodorant afterwards. Simply allow your body to breathe and air dry.
Rest comfortably for 30 minutes afterwards. {Please know that you may feel slightly lightheaded from the detox affect.}
A Few Extra Tips:

A candle at the foot of the bath helps clear the mind and focus intentions. It is said that combining energies like fire, water, earth and air can be spiritually cleansing.
Don’t add any thing else to the bath water. This is not a typical ‘bath’ bath, so shower first if needed.
Drink water before, during, and after the bath, to help your body release toxins.

I always love to share me knowledge with those beautiful souls wishing to support themselves on their Healing Journey!  It has been amazing, thank you to all of you who have made this possible, as I, the teacher learn just as much from those who bless me in coming to my classes as they learn from me.  What a wonderful exchange of energy.

Own your Light, Lead from Spirit, Widen Your Impact

Cynthia has been the “Soul” owner of Essential Energy Healing here in Lacombe for the past 10 years

Why do I do what I do?

I love to serve women who are ready to discover greater self- awareness, a deeper spiritual connection, emotional healing, authentic creative expression and to live a meaningful and passionate life as they age with grace, wisdom and vibrancy.

My practice is grounded in the pursuit of balance between mind, body, and soul, as I fully believe in the power of self-healing.

I work with women who are ready to commit to doing the sometimes difficult, always rewarding work of creating the life they desire. Whether it’s navigating transition (divorce; career change; getting older); personal development (including emotional, mental, and spiritual growth); and stress management, I will whole heartedly walk with you every step of the way until you have achieved that which you desire.

The reason why I do what I do is that I come from a place of transition myself… high anxiety,anger, and two Auto-Immune di-eases (Lupus and Celiac). I learned that you had to work hard for everything, that life was a struggle and that you had to earn your worth at every turn.  But that it not Truth!  Life does not have to be a daily struggle and through balancing the mind, body and soul with self-healing, self-care and knowledge you can stand in your power!

Sending you love and light
Breathe…Be Healthy, Be Happy…
