Have many times have I heard “ OMG! “ “Your name is Tori Amos like the singer”?!… I say yes but I am Tori B. Amos the Spiritualista Fashionista. And this is the name my parents gave to me.
“Knock Knock” Who’s there? “Path.” Path who?
I have always been intuitive ever since I can remember. I would have premonitions and feel energies around me. As if my ancestors and spirit guides were watching over me. My whole life people have come up to me from time to time and tell me that they see that I am intuitive and they know because they are too. They see “it” in me. Family members, teachers, old ladies on the street, healers and my landlord of the flat that I rented in SF, by the pan handle for many years. They all seemed to ask me the same question, “why are you not practicing your gift?” …………
I have always loved fashion. Both of my grandmothers were fashionistas. I would love to play dress up in their closets.
As a teenager I would make collages of models, shoes, jewelry and the colors of the season from all of the fashion magazines.
In 1997 I graduated from FIDM in SF, CA with a degree in Merchandise Marketing. I enjoyed working in the fashion industry as a wardrobe stylist and person shopper. I also worked in the wholesale industry as product developer and designer.
In 2000 my sister and I created Pathways Candle Co. We developed a series of affirmation and mediation votive candles.
The candle pack had 7 votives for weeks’ worth of mediations and affirmations and represented the main seven charkas colors. The “Rejuvenation” week became a popular seller at a favorite grocery Trader Joes and some local boutiques in Northern CA.
But after the spiral of the economy and a change in Trader Joes buying department the candles orders stopped coming. It was great while it lasted and Pathways taught my sister and me a lot about business and cracked open the door for my Holistic Lifestyle.
I began a deeper mediation and yoga practice during the highs and lows of the business.
“Knock Knock” Who’s there? “Path.” Path who?
Sirens and a big crash! I had 2 head on collisions with a police car that ran a red light that caused me to have a server case of whiplash. My sister told me about Reiki and that I should go have some treatments from her friend. I didn’t know what Reiki was at the time, but was ready to do anything to stop the pain in my neck.
After a few treatments I began to feel much better and I wanted to take the Reiki Energy home with me! A few weeks later I did just that! I learned Reiki level I and soon after Level II and I really can’t imagine my life with out Reiki. I truly love the Reiki Energy so much and it’s principles.
A few years later I began to study Holistic Massage at the World School of Massage in SF. …
Soon after that I opened a studio in the Mission in San Francisco and began my practice.
I became a Master in 2009.
Since then I have taught several people Reiki I and Reiki II. Spreading the knowledge of Reiki! Feels Good! My Reiki Mater, Rosie Picchi. , asked me to come for a reading from her friend Gary Springfield. He told me many things about myself that are oh so true! Then asked me the famous question with a twist! “Why aren’t you practicing? I replied, “I am and I have a healing studio and everything!” He replied, “There is more!” “You are a reader and have a lot to do young lady! “”So you better get going!!”
A week later my friend was having a bday party. Lots of friends were spending time and having fun. I had been promising my friend a Reiki treatment for awhile and his head was hurting pretty bad and he wanted to spend time with everyone and was going to take some Tylenol..but hated taking pills. So he asked me to give him a Reiki Treatment so I did. After we were done about 20 min later, he asked me a question, not “the” question but a question that would forever change my vision. :”What did you see?”
When he said that it was like the veil as lifted off of my eyes
I began giving him a reading right then and there. With no cards, shells, crystals ball, tealeaves or…just me, that is what makes an intuitive reader.
Some of my friends caught wind of what was going on and they began to line up for Reki and Readings! What!! Great practice all at once. I was told “I nailed it” there were laugher and tears and hug and kisses.
Knock Knock. “Who is it? “Your path.” “Your path who?
Your path of Holistic Healing and Reiki!
I use Reiki pretty much everyday for my self, my daughter, family, friends, loved ones, clients ,food, water and my cat Cede.
There are so many amazing healing benefits of Reiki, which I will list for you to see. It close to helps relive my stress, headache, body aches. Help get my daughter to rest when see may not be feeling well. When we both need some rest in the night when she had a cold, fever or tummy ache, she would come up to me and grab my hands, put them on her were she was not feeling good and say “ Hot hands mama, Need Hot Hands”.
Reiki warms your hands with the healing energy that radiates through, just that warmth alone will soothe just about anyone. This can put you into a deep relaxation and healing in a matter of seconds.
Knock Knock.. who is it your path. your path who?
Your path of Holistic lifestyle.
What is Reiki?
Reiki is a completely natural healing method, accelerating the body, mind and spirit’s healing process. Reiki healing sessions naturally encourage holistic health and well-being, balance, purpose and spiritual harmony in yourself and others. Reiki energy is directly connected to the Source of our universe and our being, and so is completely linked with Universal Intelligence. This intelligence allows it to focus on the most needed areas of healing completely automatically, thereby suiting the needs of the receiver in the very best way.
During the healing sessions the Reiki energy directs itself to the correct areas, both the exterior bodily symptoms and also the deeper root causes that may exist in the mental, emotional and spiritual connections.
It was Dr. Mikao Usui in the mid-twentieth century who re-introduced this ancient healing system in Japan, and now it is becoming increasingly widespread all around the world.
