Feb 2011 Newsletter

Just in time for Valentine's Day, I'm sending out my newsletter to you with much love and joy!
I'm truly inspired this month as I have witnessed the amazing results of my repetitive use of positive affirmations and visualizations. I have believed in using affirmations for so long but haven't put them to full use in a while. I suppose the New Year coming and January being "resolution" month propelled me to make some changes to my lifestyle and my business. I had ideas and plans, but it all came to fruition once I truly concentrated my attention to my goals and really "felt" what the results would be like... before I knew it, I was not only "feeling" the results out in visualization, I was actually living them. Everything came true. I have a good list of affirmations in place, which I review regularly (and tweak as I go). I spend a few minutes everyday visualizing how I would like my day to go, while feeling an enormous sense of gratitude for it. This not only works in attaining goals - it really changes your mood. I have yet to experience a bad day or conflict after doing a morning meditation/visualization.
My favourite affirmation: ALL MY RELATIONSHIPS ARE HARMONIOUS. (and I'm sooooo grateful for this!)

Sending you love, light and ear to ear smiles :) Below are my updates and some information that may be of interest to you.


New location!
I am working out of a new location! And I'm thrilled to announce that I am now doing this FULL TIME!
I have moved into a lovely healing studio at 118 West 3rd Street in North Vancouver, BC. Offering Reiki sessions, Indian Head Massage and Reflexology. Reiki Classes to be offered as of next month as well.
My space is located in a beautiful and tranquil salon named Escape Hair and Body. My official move in date was February 1st. Stella, the owner of Escape, and her staff welcomed me with a beautiful bouquet of flowers! Thank you ladies!
I hope to post photos of the new space on my blog soon. Feel free to drop by and say hello! I'm there Tue-Sat :)

Classes will start again as of March. I am reorganizing the structure and length of Reiki classes and will post information as soon as it all comes together.
