"Live in Gratitude for the blessings that were, the blessings that are, and the blessings yet to Be."

Learning to live in gratitude is essential for spiritual growth, including gratitude for the inevitable difficulties that life brings. Those challenges present opportunities for growth, leaving us stronger and more resilient.

Gratitude is a fundamental component of my soul purpose, and drives my personal mission of service.

And now, a little about me:

My education includes a B.A. in Psychology and a M.A. in Criminology. I have experience teaching undergraduate college courses, and have completed extensive post-graduate studies in Mental Health Counseling and Transpersonal Psychology. My first career was in law enforcement, which spanned more than two decades before retirement. As a law enforcement officer, I relied on my knowledge of psychology and human behavior. As the years passed, my interest in humanity and the total human experience deepened, accompanied by an increasingly urgent desire to be of service. Because of this, I followed my intuition and developed the necessary skills to facilitate holistic wellness in others.

In 2012, I created UniverSoul Heart, a holistic wellness practice, offering Reiki sessions and Spiritual Guidance. My training includes Reiki Master Teacher in Usui, Holy Fire III and Kundalini Reiki, Certified Past-Life Regression Therapist, and Certified Crystal Healer, offering Reiki Crystal Healing sessions.

Additionally, as an advocate for animals and the planet, I'm a Certified Plant-Based Nutritionist through Cornell University's T. Colin Campbell Center for Nutrition Studies.

I'm passionate about raising awareness of the benefits of Reiki and holistic wellness. To that end, I've had the honor of co-hosting as well as presenting and sponsoring the Reiki Rays Annual Summit since its inception in 2017. My presentation at the recent 2022 Reiki Healing Summit focused on "Reiki as a Life Companion."

I've been a featured guest in numerous radio interviews and also hosted “UniverSoul Heart Radio with Kathleen Johnson- Sensible Spirituality for Everyday Living“, on Transformation Talk Radio. Currently, I co-host the “Beyond the Reiki Gateway” podcast with Reiki Master Andrea Kennedy.

Writing feeds my soul and fuels my mission of service! My articles about Reiki and Spirituality have been published on Reiki Rays,  Reiki News Magazine, and of course, Medium.com.

It's great to be here on Medium and I look forward to interacting with you! Blessings!
