Lori Haggerty - Reiki Master Teacher / Shamanic Practitioner
I have been "sensitive" to energies all my life..people's, animal's, plant's, tree's, etc.. It wasn't until 2009 when I was working 50-60 hours a week in an extremely high stress job that I was finally introduced to Energy Healing, simply as a means of survival. I was suffering from emotional issues which were manifesting in my physical body.. leading to high blood pressure, weight gain, headaches, chronic pain and extreme fatigue. Reiki allowed me to clear that negative energy from such a toxic state. It also drew me to want to share what I was experiencing with others! I set out on a journey of self discovery, learning, growing and studying. In June 2014, the enlightenment I received from this journey allowed me to leave that toxic job and set out to develop my Reiki Healing practice so that I could serve the masses out there who were suffering from the same emotional and physical pain as I had. Leaving the job however, did not instantly remove that pain and I discovered that some serious damage had been done due to the chronic stress. It's as though despite being in a new emotional state of relaxation, my body was still in "fight or flight" mode.... I spent that first year sleeping, hurting, seeking holistic treatments and wondering when I would get through this Dark Night Of The Soul.
Finally, in May of 2015 I realized the time had come to live my soul’s purpose to empower others with Reiki's Divine energy and spread the knowledge and wisdom of this beautiful Energy Medicine as far and wide as I humanly can within the haven that I have created River's Edge Reiki to be. In September of 2015, I also began my intense study of Shamanism. Shamanism and Reiki are, by themselves, powerful ways to heal. Together, their power multiplies, and healing methods become available that aren’t accessible if they’re used separately. As a Shamanic practitioner I include the energetic dimension as well the spiritual aspects of the situation. I am also able to call in my helping spirits to assist you in the healing so you get multiple helpers for the price of one!
I have also been studying the Tarot and giving intuitive card readings for the last 2 1/2 years. This is another means of tapping into my client's current energetic state and helping them to see the path they are on and perhaps leads them to make necessary adjustments to bring about the shift they need to heal themselves.
I don’t know where I would be in life if Reiki hadn’t have found me 9 years ago. Reiki came into my life, and healed me on all levels…the bright light that I am within this world is rooted within the deep darkness I had to climb out of in order to appreciate where I am now.It is my passion to help you find that same light within you and I can't wait to take you on your own personal healing journey!!
