From a young age, I knew I was connected to a higher energy source. I knew I was an empath although I wouldn’t have been able to express it. Reiki had always been a part of my life because my Aunt was a Reiki Master, but it wasn’t something I practiced regularly. By early adulthood, however, Reiki was barely a thought in my head. My intuition and empathic abilities all but disappeared as my role as a wife/mother and who I was supposed to be based on learned societal beliefs had consumed me. It was on the journey back to my authentic self that I found my life’s work, which is to serve, to be and spread light and empower others to do the same.
I was dealing with anxiety and was sick often. I had small children, a home to run and had already lost both my parents. I discovered yoga, meditation and affirmations as well as regular energy work in my 20’s and it was helping quite a bit. So, I kept doing what felt good to me as part of my daily life practices. In 2007, I was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease. I was told that the disease was treatable but that I would likely have it for the rest of my life. This did not resonate with me at all. I was sure that I could cure myself using the techniques I had been working with. I watched as my self-care practices healed my life. I witnessed that when I was healing the energetic root and cause of the disease, not just the physical, I was able to heal myself completely and this inspired me to dive in deeper. Shortly after, the doctor sat in amazement as he looked at my latest cat scan results and saw that I was completely cured.
In 2010 I trained and became a Reiki Master and Yoga Instructor. All along I asked the Universe, ‘how may I serve”. I kept learning and doing different energy modalities, meditating, practicing, and discovering who I am. All the while I kept asking the Universe, “how may I serve”. This led me to volunteer for a few years as the president of The Pajama Program, Long Island Chapter. For years, I would read to and deliver PJ’s to kids in need. It was one of those children who inspired me to teach kids yoga. “Yo Miss Danielle, if you come from love anything is possible” said this 5-year-old boy. That led me to one of my missions as a yoga teacher.
The gifts I had as a child were lying dormant. After becoming a Reiki Master my gifts as an empath magnified quickly. When my sister passed in 2012, my connection to the Angelic Realm deepened even further. All the while I had been asking, “how I may serve”.
“How may I serve” was the space I have held on my journey not only for my self-healing, but also for my life. I am grateful because it has personally grown me, and I am living my best life helping others.
I quickly realized my love for bringing yoga to children and individuals with special needs to empower them to live healthy, balanced lives. In 2015 I created DVDs for children of all abilities and in 2018, a Special Needs Yoga Training.
Reiki is always at the core of my healing work but through time I have become an eclectic energy healer and Intuitive guide offering my clients a unique experience. It has become one of my missions to enable people to heal their lives through understanding the energetic body, connecting to their own intuition through meditation and teaching those to understand the energies of the universe. I believe everyone should have an energetic healing modality, which is why I am committed to teaching Reiki. As an empath and intuitive guide, I have found balance by learning energetic and spiritual tools and techniques. I am committed to helping others discover their self-empowerment tools.
