What Reiki Will Do For You And What It Won’t

Many turn to Reiki when they’ve tried conventional routes to healing such as medicine, nutrition, chiropractic care or psychotherapy.

Why Introverts Feel Drained in Groups and How I Preserve My Energy

“In the midst of movement and chaos, keep stillness inside of you.” ~Deepak Chopra When I was younger, I was always referred to as “the quiet one.” I didn’t mind it; I knew I was much quieter than most people I met. Not speaking and spending time on my own was natural for me.

They understood me as quiet, but they didn’t really understand just how much I disliked the whole socializing thing and how much it would drain me. I’d always loved time on my own. Even if I was...
