Patricia is a Usui Reiki (Shihan) Master/Teacher. She received Reiki I and II in 2000 and became a Reiki Master in 2001 through Dr. Ness. Patricia learned of The International Center for Reiki Training and William Rand's book Reiki: The Healing Touch. After reading it she immediately knew that was the book she had been searching for. Discovering the Japanese Reiki techniques was an important link for her as a Reiki teacher and practitioner. She did Reiki I, II, and ART/Master training with William Rand and Karuna Reiki® Master training with William Rand, Laurelle Gaia, and Michael Baird. She also did Gendai Reiki-Ho Gokukaiden training with Hiroshi Doi a Japanese Reiki Shihan twice and Komyo Reiki Kai with Hyakuten Inamoto Sensei.
Patricia says, “Reiki is a sacred initiation and the primary purpose of Reiki is self-healing. As we heal ourselves spiritually, mentally, emotionally, and physically – we bring wholeness and balance into our lives. As we truly love ourselves and honor our divinity, our capacity to love and honor others grows exponentially.”
Patricia owns Inspired Heart Reiki Center. Reiki classes, Reiki Circle, and Reiki Shares are offered to assist her students in their confidence and abilities. Everyone benefits.
I was born to a Japanese mother and American father. My early childhood was spent feeling connected to everything and then much of my adolescent and adult life feeling separate from everyone. Life was not easy for a Japanese-American child in those days.
I always felt we are here for a reason and with a purpose. I felt I fulfilled my purpose with the birth of my only child, Anthony. Anthony was born on St. Valentine's Day. Four or five days after Anthony's birth, I received anonymously in the mail a poem ordinarily sent after the passing of a child, not when a child was just born. I wondered to myself if this was a premonition, placed the poem in Anthony's baby book, and let it go. That fateful day arrived December 31, 1996; Anthony passed over with three other teenagers in an automobile crash. Life as I knew it completely disappeared that day.
I knew I had to heal my heart otherwise it would somehow manifest physically. I completely surrendered, asking God to help me. I learned about a type of energy healing called Reiki and immediately knew I needed treatments. Then I learned how to do Reiki for myself.
I became more loving of myself and let go of the need to be a victim. Acceptance of my new life grew. I attended many spiritual conferences and read many books on body, mind, and spirit connection.
I met Dominic after attending a course in Sweden. Dominic, a native Floridian, lost his only child in an auto crash 4 months prior to our meeting. He moved to Virginia with me and became a Reiki Master. We moved to Vero Beach, FL to be near his parents. Coming from a large spiritual community in Virginia and moving to Vero was a huge transition for me. I asked what was I to do there. The spiritual shop in town was closing after 18 years. Intuitively I was guided to occupy that space and create the Inspired Heart. The Inspired Heart opened its doors in March 2004 and closed March 2011. The Inspired Heart has now transitioned from a retail shop to a Reiki Center.
Reiki is my passion. Reiki deserves utmost integrity and honoring for its sacredness. I am grateful every day for the gift of Reiki in my life. It is an honor and a privilege to share the gift of Reiki with you. Thank you. Domo arigato gozaimasu. Gassho.
