Navajo Healing Workshop Comes to Blue Mountain Reiki!

I am thrilled to announce this special Navajo Healing style workshop to be held at Blue Mountain Reiki studio in January! Elder, community leader, and renowned healer Susan Gale from A Place of Light is journeying to Asheville to offer these teachings. Susan herself is non-native, but she has been given permission to share these sacred ways by her teacher, a Navajo medicine man who was initiated by his tribe at the age of six, and with whom Susan has spent many years studying, teaching, and healing.

Some of the topics that will be covered in this workshop are:

  • connecting with the medicine of plants, stones, feathers and other tools for healing
  • coming to an understanding of how your energy interacts with the energy of different medicines
  • identifying strategies for various physical and emotional circumstances that are encountered, from known stresses to unknown or unexplained situations

NOTE: Participants may wish to bring feathers, stones, rattles, drums that they own and have prepared for spiritual use (optional).

DATES: January 11th and 12th, from 10am - 5pm both days

COST: $300 ~ deposit of $150 due to hold your space

For additional details, you may visit the event listing on our Meetup page.

Space is limited, so please reach out today if you would like to reserve your spot!

Going Within with Reiki

As August comes to a close, there is a familiar chill in the air already here in these Western Carolina mountains. Fall is my favorite season. I love returning to my comfy sweaters and tall boots, to fires in the fireplace and snuggling up in a fuzzy blanket. But perhaps most of all, I enjoy the way that the autumn calls us to that going-within place. Like our brother/sister Bear, we, too, are called inward to rest and reflect and heal.

Within the cave of the Sacred Void, we can dream our lives into being; we can return to that sacred center where the unmanifest lives and we can emerge to manifest our highest Truth.

Reiki, that gentle flow of universal life-force energy, is a beautiful way we can support ourselves in this healing and manifesting process. I hope you will join me this Fall to go deeper into the Sacred Void where all things are possible, and to choose Love and Light as the path to your own emerging best self.

Blessings and beauty,

Rain, the Reiki of Renewal

In my ten years in Asheville, I have never seen so much rain in the summertime! It is truly amazing to see this true temperate rain forest in action. I have heard so many people wishing it away and feeling sick of it, and I do understand that sentiment, certainly. That said, I have always loved the rain.

Something about rain brings me deeply into a place of self reflection. It's as if the Earth is asking me to look inward and allow that powerful cleansing energy to penetrate through all the layers of busy, busy, busy and get right to the core.

The sound of rain is comforting to me, too... and the smell of it. I like the sound of the cars passing on the wet road, the irregular, heavier drip-drop of the water trickling over the window awnings, the rumble of thunder over the mountains.

I love the smile that pours over my face as I dash madly from my car up the driveway, through the fence, and onto my covered porch, as a heavy rain drenches me completely in the space of a few short seconds. As a child, I remember just going out and standing in the street when it would rain, letting it soak me to the bone.

Rain, rain, rain... and more rain.

To me, rain is the Reiki of renewal, that sweet cleansing energy of change. It goes deep, cleansing and clearing, pushing the dirt aside to find those sacred seeds and coax them into growth.

We are right in the middle of particularly interesting Mercury retro period, as well (It started on June 26th and goes direct on July 20th... with plenty of waves before and after those dates). All this rain, rain, rain seems quite appropriate with the current energies. Like all this rain, many spend a lot of energy dreading and bemoaning Mercury retro (yes, I have, too!). But there's one constant gift that Mercury retro brings us, and that is a chance to bring old issues and relationships to light and heal them.

Let Mother Earth Reiki your soul with all this rain... even if you are somewhere in the world where you are experiencing totally different weather patterns--it doesn't matter. The Law of Abundance rules! Healing on this patch of ground is healing for the whole; healing of this soul is healing for the whole. And so it is, on and on...

May the energy of rain go deeply into your being, finding those parched places and filling them with joyful abundance. May you appreciate each moment of the sun's warmth on your face ever more having looked so long upon the persistent beauty of deep grays and blue hues.

May your sacred seed burst forth within you and sprout into being.

This is the beginning. Welcome.

The Benefits of Learning Reiki

Have you been thinking about joining us for the Reiki I and II workshop on May 18th and 19th or the Advanced Reiki Training (Reiki IIIa) on June 8th? Here are just a few of the benefits of learning Reiki for you to consider as you make your choice:

  • Learning Reiki gently opens space deep within us, making room for deep healing to begin. 
  • Every Reiki attunement received clears the pathway between our energy centers--our chakras--removing blockages and clearing away residual negativity!
  • Many people report amazing healing unfolding within them in the days and even weeks after class.
  • Reiki is a wonderful tool for deepening your self-healing practice; it is both gentle and powerful, and it can soften even the hardest places within us and prepare those places for healing.
  • "Rei" means spiritually guided; "Ki" means life force energy. Connecting more closely with the precious energy of the Universe helps us to discover and come closer to knowing our oneness with all existence. We are all a part of this sacred flow, and Reiki can help clear the way for us to experience this oneness more fully, healthily, and happily.
  • Studying with Blue Mountain Reiki is not the same as any other Reiki class you have taken. Every teacher you ever study with will share information differently and have different life experiences and intuitive knowings to share with you. Even teachings you have already received can be understood in an entirely new way when learned in a new setting and at a new time in your own life! I have found this to be amazingly true in my own classwork.
Please reach out to me with any questions you may have about Reiki practice, or about how classwork can help you to connect more deeply with the Universe and with your own healing path. I have experienced this self transformation first hand, and am infinitely grateful for the joyful abundance it has helped to reveal in my life.

I hope to see you in one of our classes! :)

Let's shine our heart lights together...

With LOVE,


We are all sparks of the Divine shining within the Sacred Void!

Honor YOUR Shift with Reiki

It's eclipse season! The shift is in full swing, calling us to step up to the proverbial plate and live our Truth. I have found Reiki to be an ideal tool for both helping us undergo the healing we know we're ready for, as well as helping to prepare us to be ready for that deeper healing that we need, but might not feel quite ready for!

Reiki never fails to surprise me with the depth and power of its gentle healing. Along my own path, I have had certain life struggles... certain aspects of myself that I have long wanted to change, things I wished could just be different for me. But there is a big difference between wanting something to change, wanting for it to be different, and actually being ready to embody that change and that growth! Reiki helped me get there, helped me shift from the wanting to the place of readiness.

I am still healing; I am still growing. There is a reason that I hold "Healing is a Way of Life" as the mantra for my practice! This is my journey, and I am honored to serve our world community as a mirror, a sacred reflection, a witness, an amplifier for that collective while I, myself, travel ever more deeply into my own healing.

That is the beauty of Reiki; we who serve as that sacred hollow bone for the Reiki to flow through are also healed, ourselves, even as the healing passes through us to another! WOW. My gratitude for this joyful way is eternal.

.          .          .

I invite you to consider complementing your own healing journey with some Reiki classwork and/or a Reiki session. Please remember that all sessions at Blue Mountain Reiki are by donation, and you can check out our upcoming classes and events on this page! :)

Happy shifting,

Reiki By Donation ~ A Special Announcement

On the heels of a resounding success sharing Reiki at the Asheville Wholistic Integrative Fair, I am called to make a special announcement. Starting today, Blue Mountain Reiki will no longer be charging specific fees for Reiki sessions. Instead, I am moving to a 100% donation model for session work.

My Blue Mountain Reiki booth at AWIF
At the fair, I was blessed with an unending stream of those who wished to receive Reiki, some of them for the very first time. I left out a donation jar and invited anyone and everyone who stopped by to hop on my table for free. By the end of the day, practitioners all around me were breaking down there booths, and I was still doing Reiki. When I got home, I counted up my tip jar and found that the universe had provided me with EXACTLY the cost of my booth fee for the fair, plus five dollars--probably the approximate cost of my gas to get there!

WOW. I had been sitting with the idea of moving to a 100% donation model for Reiki sessions and had felt like the fair would be a good place for me to see how that worked. The universe spoke loud and clear: When I opened my heart and my hands to provide for people without any attention paid to money coming in, the energetic exchange was--practically to the penny--exactly what I needed.

This was the sign I was looking for! I am putting my faith and trust in the source of Love and Light that is truly the one offering the Reiki, and I am honoring my place in the energetic foodchain by offering my time as mirror, witness, and channel for healing without attaching a pricetag to that.

My teaching fees will remain as they are, but my heart has led me very specifically to open up my Reiki session offerings to any and all who wish to have them. Even those who cannot afford regular session prices still need and deserve healing. And so, I open this new doorway to the future of my practice by inviting each of you to honor our time together only with what you are truly able to afford and called to offer.

With TRUST in our innate ability to live in ABUNDANCE without clamoring for it...


Haley :)

Exciting Times at Blue Mountain Reiki!

Whew! It has been a very busy and happy start to the year here at Blue Mountain Reiki! As I reflect on this now, here on the eve of my 33rd birthday, I am immensely grateful for the Light that is flowing into my life and to this practice. I find myself pausing in moments to marvel at how beautifully this is all unfolding. Just another reminder to myself to TRUST THE PROCESS and allow the healing to come into being! Wow:)

My class schedule is up and running, and January's class time was truly wonderful. I've got a February class coming up here in Asheville, and am waiting to announce March and April dates, as I may be holding a Reiki I only course in Florida in March.

Additionally, Blue Mountain Reiki hosted its first Reiki Support Group just last weekend. We had an amazing turnout for this event, and I am so excited to see what kinds of Reiki community events and volunteer efforts we are able to create together in 2013! If you are interested in participating in our next gathering, click here!

I have also been receiving some wonderful feedback about my recent article in Reiki News Magazine. This was a truly joyful endeavor for me, and it is an honor to be included.

January is not even over yet, and so very many wonderful things are happening and in the works. May this beautiful energy flow strong and clear in the year ahead! Sending Reiki for joy and abundance to each and every soul reading these words who wishes to receive it...
