Rachael Thompson-Youtuber-Social Media and Reiki Practitioner 

Rachael is a Reiki Master. It has been an incredible two-year journey; one that a simple certificate will never be able to reflect. During this time, I have practiced on clients, family, friends, children, strangers, and my dogs ( a lot). I have turned 100% skeptics into people who ask me to send Reiki and come to me with questions. I did not do this through my incredible power of persuasion (admittedly, I'm not the best saleswoman), but rather through the example I set and by simply allowing the Energy to do its thing. 

In starting my own Energy Healing Business, I aim to take these gifts and share them with everyone (no matter your income or location). I want to demystify this process so everyone can experience the powerful results. I say this with no ego involved, but I was given the natural gift of healing. This is my Dharma and I was sent here to help you heal. That is why I thought I wanted to be a therapist, but it wasn't a right fit. My Reiki training simply opened the gates to what was always there but lying dormant within.

Rachael also grew her YouTube Channel from 500 to over 50,000 in just under 4 years.

She is a master at the law of attraction. has a social science degree and is well versed in building a business and healing arts.

Rachael feels beyond blessed to share this with you and help transform your life in whatever ways you need. Thank you for taking the time to read about my journey.

I wish you Love & Light on yours :)
