Allow me to introduce myself…
My name is Carolyn Musial and I am a full-time Reiki Master
Teacher and Practitioner.. I had my first experience with Reiki in April
of 1998. I had been reading spiritual books and searching for
answers. I just knew there was more to life, though I had no
idea what I was searching for. Then a friend suggested we take a
Reiki class. I immediately responded, “O.K.!” Then I said, “What’s
Reiki?” I had no idea what Reiki was, but when I heard the word
something resonated inside me, and I knew I had to take that
And so this journey began, yet finding Reiki was like coming “home”.
I started a daily practice of Reiki for myself, and also began
treating friends and clients. Within a year I knew I wanted to teach,
to share this amazing gift with others. I learned that my first Reiki
Master had moved from the area, and I was not successful in locating
him. It was another year before I found Laurelle Gaia and the
International Center for Reiki Training. I became a Reiki Master in
July of 2000, and a Karuna Reiki® Master in July of 2001. By her
example, Laurelle has shown me what it is like to “live” Reiki –
opening to the healing, peace and guidance it offers, sharing those
gifts with others and empowering my students to do the same.
In May of 2002, I took my first of three classes in Animal
Communication at Spring Farm, near Binghamton, NY. I always
"knew" I could communicate with animals, I just did not know
how. Spring Farm, and the animal teachers there, opened up a
whole new world for me of wisdom and understanding.
In December of 2002 I completed a four year program in Shamanic
Studies and Energy Body Healing at the Heartwind
Center for Holistic Studies. Then in April of 2003 I left my 28 year
career in corporate America to become a full-time Reiki Master Teacher
and Practitioner. It was time to follow my dream.
In 2003 I
began to receive "guidance" to take hypnosis training.
Everyplace I turned, I was receiving information on hypnosis.
I have to admit I was put off by what I considered its "clinical
aspect", but the messages were clear. Finally, in 2004 I found
the perfect teacher in Crystal While at Insight Therapies in Erie, PA.
Crystal advised me that she had a "spiritual approach" to
hypnosis, and I knew I was in the right place! I completed my
training as mandated by the National Guild of Hypnotists and learned
how to help someone contact their own "wise mind" for information and
guidance. I find hypnosis and working with
the subconscious mind absolutely fascinating, and I feel privileged to
offer this service to my clients.
In September, 2006 I had the privilege of studying with Hiroshi Doi,
President of the Gendai Reiki Healing Association in Japan and a
current member of the Usui Reiki Ryoho Gakkai. Through Doi
Sensei I received my certification as "Gokui Kaiden", the
highest level of Gendai Reiki Ho.
In May, 2011 I had the honor or studying Jikiden Reiki with Frank
Arjava Petter, known to most of us in the Reiki world as
"The" Historian on Reiki. It was sheer joy to receive
both the Shoden & Okuden levels of Jikiden Reiki in the
traditional Japanese style (no Western influence). I now have an
even deeper appreciation of Reiki, and my heart is filled with
gratitude for all that Arjava shared with us! (Thank you, Arjava
Sensei! Kansha Shimasu!)
My practice includes Usui, Tibetan and Karuna Reiki®, Reiki Drumming,
psychic surgery or aura cleansing, healing attunements, hypnosis,
wellness imagery, past-life regression, Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), muscle
testing, chakra cleansing and balancing, soul retrievals, healing of
past lives and other shamanic practices. I am a Karuna Reiki® Master
and a Senior Licensed Teacher with the International Center for Reiki Training
(www.reiki.org). I am also
a member of the National Guild of Hypnotists.
I am always happy to spread the message of Reiki and share what I have
learned, and am available for talks to any group that is interested.
has transformed my life, bringing me to a place of inner peace and
harmony, and opened me up to a deep understanding that All IS ONE. It continues to teach and guide me as I walk my path.
I give thanks each day for the gift of Reiki in my life and look
forward to connecting with you on your journey. As we heal
ourselves, we heal the planet.
