Pathway Today - Introduction to Karen and Pathway Energetic Wellbeing
In 2019, I was 48, my youngest child had just turned 6 and my eldest was 8. I was a full-time mum, contracting part-time in corporate HR (Human Resources), and supporting my soul-partner with our business; yet not really enjoying any of that to the extent I felt I should and dreading having to return to this work on a full-time basis. Whilst I loved helping people, in reality my days were spent doing tasks that were not helping in the ways I truly wanted; I didn't feel like I was fulfilling my passion and purpose in life. My partner and soul-mate encouraged me to follow my heart centre and start my own energetic modality business; that, my friends, was the start of Pathway Energetic Wellbeing!
Today, life is completely different; I feel more connected and am truly helping people in ways I only dreamed about previously. I am a Reiki practitioner since (attuned to both Reiki I and Reiki II since 2003), a certified Access Bars® Practitioner (2019), a certified Swedish (Relaxation) Masseuse, including Reflexology and a modified form of Thai Massage (2021), and recently obtained attunement for Reiki Master and Teacher (2021). I do not think of myself as a healer, rather an enabler to wellbeing.
I am a mother of 2 young, active kids, and a partner to a wonderful soul. I love nature and gardening, particularly Australian natives and wildflowers, have recently cultivated our aromatic-sensory healing garden, which includes veggie patches, and have provided a home for a couple hives of Australian Native Bees (which is really what our gardens are about - attracting bees and animals and providing sanctuary for any person who may choose to immerse themselves into it). Regular animal visitors to our gardens include bees, all types of birds, wallabies and our resident wild black bunny! I also love aromatherapy, using both essential oils and Australian bush flower essences for most of my adult life; since having my own family I have integrated them into our daily lives for personal hygiene, cleaning and personal health purposes.
From my HR days (which spanned most of my career), I have had significant experience helping others during times of extreme stress and anxiety. I have also had personal experience with anxiety and situational depression, so this is definitely something very close to my heart. My passion and purpose now is in preventative methods for helping people to de-stress and relax as a pathway to their wellbeing.
The aim at Pathway Energetic Wellbeing is to help you access your own innate healing ability, your knowing for going beyond a point of view, and releasing any of the judgements, agendas, inventions, limitations and lies that are holding you back from being the infinite being you are destined to be - the best version of yourself you can possibly be in all areas of your life. All modalities used at Pathway Energetic Wellbeing are based on the principle of Chi (pronounced chee), also known as Ki, Qi or Prana. Chi is the general term for the universal life force energy that flows through every living thing. The Chi energy flowing in you is what gives you vitality and fullness of life. It is my belief that when a person feels stressed, their body blocks Chi causing an imbalance that leads to illness or dis-ease. The services provided at Pathway Energetic Wellbeing aim to keep Chi flowing through the body, thereby keeping it balanced and healthy.
Pathway Energetic Wellbeing is not just another energetic modality or massage business. I ensure all my clients have a true experience; from the moment you drive up the road and see the huge fig tree, Mahika, across the road with her sublime feminine energy, to when you park in the driveway and are surrounded by blooming flowers and native shrubs with bees buzzing and birds chirping. The pathway leading to the treatment room has you walking past the aromatic-sensory healing garden full of flowers, herbs and vegetables, that eventually has you coming to the front door with the lavender in full bloom beside you. Once inside, your treatment will be tailored to your specific needs, whether it is Access Bars®, Reiki, Reflexology, Swedish (Relaxation) Massage, or a combination of these. At worst, you will leave feeling more relaxed than when you walked through the door, and at best you will feel like your whole life has changed for the better.
I'm happy to talk to you about your needs and how my services may help you.
How can life get any better than this!?
