Come Home to Yourself. It's like Medicine for your Soul...
Reading & Reiki Sessions
If you found me here, it's likely you're feeling burned out, emotionally overwhelmed, and you want to find clarity and direction in your life.
You don't need to continue carrying all that emotional burden around, taking on other peoples problems on top of your own stress. It’s making you feel heavy, tired and depleted.
It's okay to start caring for yourself. I know you have a lot going on and you're afraid that if you stop everything will come crashing down around you, but it's not all your responsibility.
It's okay to ask for a helping hand.
Reading & Reiki Session
A personal Tarot Reading and Reiki Energy Healing will help you gain greater awareness and understanding of your challenges. Reiki energy will help you calm your system, recharge your energy, let go of stuck emotions, and bring more clarity. Feeling ungrounded, scattered, drained or anxious doesn't need to be your normal state of being.
Through this work I want to assist you in bringing you closer to who you really are - it makes the hidden or unseen parts of yourself more conscious. As old energy and emotions fall away, it helps you tap into your own intuition and inner wisdom.
Reiki helps you feel connected, grounded, and take in the nourishment that you so deeply need. It gently removes emotional, mental or energetic blockages that stop the flow of your natural state of being. Joints, muscles and organs store certain emotions which stop the flow of energy in your system.
Think about it this way: if you are stressed and tense, how does your jaw feel?
Your shoulders? Your belly?
If you’re anxious or overwhelmed, what happens to your digestive system?
If you are sad, depressed or grieving, where do you feel those emotions in your body?
This is how mental, physical and emotional stress can impact your body's systems.
Reiki helps release these blocks and burdens so you can get into your own alignment and the flow of your life again.
"Your reading came in a moment of indecision and feeling of stuckness and I am so glad that I received your intuitive guidance and soothing words. Those cards you pulled were straight from the divine and super powerful messages! As a matter of fact, I must say a few days after the card reading they brought more clarity to me, as if hey were meant to be understood after the storm and to know how to navigate further along my journey. To trust my true YES! And yes, I do know what that feels like when it happens. The reading resonates strongly. Thank you for your gentle and comforting energy. I could feel your genuine care."
- Magali Van Ballaer, Belgium
"Ashley was my L2 Reiki facilitator and I have the honour of being a client of hers too. Since her work is so rooted in boundaries, I recently went to her for a session to release cords that were a long time entangled. This session was so profound for me having always felt the need to be mixed with the energy of those around me. Ashley does incredible Reiki Sessions and when I asked her to focus the energy specifically around my boundaries I noticed a drastic shift in how I manage my own energy there after, noticed where common leaks were in my body and how to maintain them. When it comes to boundary management I am so happy to have Ashley in my corner to navigate this."

The truth about Tarot
Tarot is not about predicting the future, it’s about showing you the scope of your whole situation. The reading often answers all of the questions about your current stressors or situation, as it illuminates what you are not seeing in your life.
It gives you insight into how you might need to overcome challenges, tend to your energy or care for your emotional self. It gives you next steps into who you are becoming or a part of yourself that needs to become more conscious.
With readings, I use a combination of cards. I like the complexity and discussion it creates, like a spiritual therapy session. I want you have more understanding and certainty to where you are in your life so you can move forward with clarity and confidence.
"Thank you, Ashley, for the online card reading and Reiki energy healing. I haven't received an online reading and healing of this nature before and it was just as valuable as a face to face exchange. Your intuition is spot on and the cards you pulled in the session were an accurate representation of where I am at at the moment and your guidance was well received. You have a calm and thoughtful nature and this was felt in the session, which online is wonderful. I enjoyed the card reading feedback following the session for me to access at any time I wish."
- Karen De Souza, Malta
"I had an oracle reading and distant Reiki healing session with Ashley.
She provides a safe healing place, her voice was calming and reassuring. She informed me of my present situation and challenges. Later she offered guidance on how to go by with my current situation. She was able to bring out areas of myself that I was not aware of, but need to work on. Days after, that mere awareness made things move in my life. Truly amazing! I felt intense energy during the distant Reiki session. The heaviness I initially felt, lightened. Energy in my body moved smoothly. I slept so well that night. Thank you Ashley! I highly recommend her! I am grateful for the opportunity to connect with her!
- Cristina Sioson-Magat, Philippines.
"After the treatment I'm feeling amazing. Totally different than before the treatment. I slept really well last night and I think I realized my biggest issue was that I wasn't grounded. So thank you."
- Jenny Arndt, Ontario
"Just had a wonderful session with Ashley, at a time when I needed some guidance and support in my life. Everything that came up in the reading was so accurate and resonated with me at a deep level. The Reiki was very powerful and I could feel the energy moving through my body. I left the session feeling very energized and positive. Ashley was very calm and supportive throughout the session and really felt she was tuned into what was going on for me. I can highly recommend working with Ashley - she is very intuitive and skilled in both the readings and the Reiki."
- Lynne C. England, UK
Begin to make yourself a priority in your life and remember you are more than just a physical body. You are also made up of energy, spirit and complex emotions. Most modalities only address one of these aspects instead of all that you are as a whole. Book a session to get clear on what you really need, how to overcome your challenges and bring your body into peaceful balance.
What should I expect during a Reiki Session?During a Reiki Session you will be invited to lay on a massage table, fully clothed and allow yourself to rest. I will lay my hands on your joints, head and over your organs to promote healing. You can expect to feel very relaxed - there is nothing that you need to do. Most people will drift off into a deep state of relaxation but still be fully present to what is happening throughout the session. You may feel warmth or cool, tingling or a flow of energy in your body, all which are very pleasant. It is possible that behind your eyes you see light, or various colours. Everyone has their own experience, but most typically deep rest and relaxation are the commonly felt during and after, a feeling of lightness or a shift in outlook or energy levels following.
Can I receive Reiki along with medical treatment?Yes, there are centres which offer Reiki in addition to cancer treatment for instance. Because Reiki is energetic and not a medication or supplement, it will only amplify the effectiveness of the treatment. Often too, when you can get your busy mind, worries and stress out of the way and deeply rest, that is when your body can go to work and do what it is meant to do - heal and repair.
How can a Tarot reading help me?A tarot reading is like a reflection of your current situation, whether that be personal, about your relationships or work situations as a few examples. And as life happens, we experience challenges or hurdles that we have to overcome, or sometimes we know we need to change, but we just feel stuck. A reading helps you to see your situation, challenges or 'stickiness' from a larger scope. You can see what you are not seeing, you can see what IS working and what steps you might need to take next. It brings you confirmation or clarity on how to move forward in your life....in any aspect. What I love most is the conversations it opens up, as often it brings up what NEEDS to be seen and expressed. You will walk away with greater understanding.
What is Reiki?Reiki is a hands-on healing modality that originated in Japan. The Reiki Practitioner accesses the Universal Life Force Energy, which is all around us to heal the mind, body and spirit. The treatment is very gentle and non-evasive. Most people report feeling warmth, tingling or energy moving in their body. Typically following a session you will calm and much lighter.
Are there any side effects from Reiki?Most commonly, you will only feel better and lighter. It can help break through the heavy and dark of depression, it can calm and soothe anxiety or help shift circumstances in your life. However, if your body has a lot to release physically or emotionally it is possible to feel sleepy like you need more rest or slightly more emotional if there were unconscious emotions that needed to come to the surface to be felt. As Reiki is very gentle, it will only move and release what you are ready for.
Does Tarot predict the future?Tarot can bring you future possibilities, but I mostly read in a way to show you what is happening in your current situation. The thing about reading the future, whether that be through Tarot or an intuitive or psychic reading, you need to know that the future is very changeable. There are many possibilities and the future can change based on the decisions and choices you make now. So while I may show you a future possibility or outcome, that is never set in stone. I like to focus on showing you a bigger picture of your present, so you can make what you aren't seeing more conscious.
How can I expect to feel after a session?Following a session you may feel a little bit sleepy when you first get up, just like you would waking up from a nap or after a massage. After getting up, most people notice a shift in their overall energy levels, they feel like they are no longer so tense in their body or carrying so much stress. The energy will continue to work in the days following, and sometimes without doing anything situations will resolve or you will have more clarity around challenges. It's important to rest if you can following a session to allow the energy to integrate. It's a good idea drink lots of water after to keep yourself grounded and help clear any energy that has been released.
What if I want to cancel the membership?There is a three month minimum commitment when you sign up. After that, you can cancel your membership. Just send me an email and I will help you with that process. Do keep in mind however that the $44 is the founding members price. So, if you decide to re-join the membership at another time, it will likely be at a higher price point.
What if I don't use the membership?That is very possible, but the membership is about making yourself a priority and having the tools at your fingertips that help you to tune in through meditation, journaling and movement practices that will help you shift the way you want to feel. So, I suggest you schedule time each week or month to tune in and practice making you an important focus in YOUR life. If after three months you find that you are not using the membership and it is no benefit to you, you can cancel at any time. I will mention, that as a founding member you will not receive this price if you wish to re-join at a later date.
Do I need to be a part of the community? Can I do things at my own pace?You can participate as little or as much as you wish in the community. There is a community page to chat and share your experiences. While this may not be something that you are immediately attracted to, it is hugely beneficial. Often when we face a challenge, have an 'aha' moment its easy to feel like you're alone. With the group, you will be able to form connections with other women who are just like you (meaning they understand your struggles or sensitivity). They have likely had similar experiences and can share their wisdom, or they are just there to celebrate with you when something great happens. So how much you engage is up to you, but healing that fear or being supported by other women is so beautiful and powerful.
Do I need to join the classes live? Will there be recordings?Absolutely not. Much of the content will be pre-recorded. The card pull and journal questions you received at the beginning of each month, will be pre-recorded and sent directly to your email. The movement practices are recorded ahead of time and available for you at any time. Most will be short and sweet so they can fit into your busy schedule. The two Soul Medicine sessions will be recorded BUT it is best if you can attend live, as the information and readings I share are based on who is in attendance. So, while you can watch the recordings, they will be more impactful live.
Can I contact you in-between our meetings?Yes, having access to me is part of this work. You will have access to me through email between our sessions because let's face it, stuff comes up and you might have challenges or important questions. I am available between regular hours and am typically pretty quick to respond. However, please be patient as I also have other clients and responsibilities.
Does Distant Reiki really work and what should I expect?There are two Distance Reiki sessions within the mentorship for you. One will be right at the beginning of our sessions, so as we begin this journey together you can begin with clearer energy. And, a second will be in the middle of our sessions to give your energy a reboot. You will likely know when this is needed. And yes, distance Reiki really does work! Energy is everywhere and it is not limited to time and space! I have done sessions for people as far as the UK, Philippines and Tasmania and they could feel warmth in their bodies, the movement of energy and in some cases experienced emotional release. You can turn your camera off and lay down. You will hear me talking you through the process and leading you through a guided journey into deeper relaxation and healing.
Will there be homework? What if I don't have time to complete it?There will be some homework each week, but it is VERY IMPORTANT homework. It will usually mean carving out as little as 10 or 20 minutes each day to tune in to you through journaling or mediation. Do you feel like you are so unimportant that you cannot give yourself that little bit of time each day? If not, then this work is NOT for you. Some weeks there may be a little bit more to do, but always remember that there will be more growth when you can give an adequate amount of time...to you!
Is there a payment plan available?Yes! If you don't wish to pay in full, you can pay in three instalments of $644 If you feel like this work is for you, but you have some financial challenges, don't hesitate to reach out and see if we can come up with a solution for you.
What if I don't get the desired results?To be honest, you get what you put in in the case of this work. I guarantee that if you are giving yourself the adequate time to make yourself a priority, you will see change in your life, your worth and belief in yourself. The best thing to do is to book a 30 minute complimentary call with me so we both know that this work is right for you and the expectations that you have are achievable. I will be honest if I don't think this work is for you and I will do my best to suggest another practitioner or mentor that may be able to assist you on the right journey.
Will I have to meditate? What if I'm not good at it?Yes, meditation will be a component of this work as a way to get to know yourself, however I have no expectation of you being 'good at meditation' if you've never done it before. Meditation will be different day-to-day. Some days it will be blissful, some days will be challenging, some days your mind will be busy or you won't want to do it. But making it a habit is important to staying connected to what is most important - YOU. I will help you find methods and practices what will work for you...like a walking meditation, guided or a mantra if that helps keep your mind clear.
