As you might imagine, working with angels permeated all areas of my life including my Reiki sessions (which I was only doing with friends and family at that time). In March 2004, I completed Dr. Doreen Virtue's Angel Therapy Practitioner® certification course and received guidance to come out of the spiritual closet and offer Reiki sessions and angel workshops.
Upon opening my practice, I referred to the sessions I offered as simply Reiki. A few clients familiar with Reiki, began referring to sessions with me as "Ellen's Reiki". I coined the term "Reiki with Angels" to more accurately reflect the type of sessions I offered. I transitioned from private practitioner to public speaker and workshop leader in 2005.
If you feel guided toward Reiki with Angels, please ask God and your angels for a sign indicating which practitioner or teacher would be best for you to work with.
