The Rocks n Rituals Story

Someone recently asked me how I got into this business and where the name Rocks n Rituals came from. I thought I would share the story for those of you who perhaps don't know. 

I always loved crystals and all things esoteric in nature - angels, spirits, tarot, the paranormal ... so in April 2010 I decided to do a crystal healing course and I loved it. I got to learn all about the different crystals, their healing properties and how everything in the universe is all interconnected. I also learned about working with energy which eventually led me to Reiki but I will come to that shortly!

I wanted to start working with my new found knowledge but I soon realised that not too many people were that open to crystal healing at that particular time. It was all a little to "woo-woo" for them. I realised I needed to offer some more traditional treatments perhaps before people would begin to trust me and work with me on an energetic level.

By early 2011 I had qualified in aromatherapy and reflexology. I was now in need of a good name for my fledgling business. I wanted a play on rest and relaxation - RnR - but I wanted to reference my love for crystals and magic somehow as well. I knew even then that I wanted more than just a spa type business. It was my partner who came up with the name Rocks n Rituals.

By mid-2011 Rocks n Rituals was bringing in customers for massage and reflexology but I still felt something important was missing. I wanted to work with crystals and energy healing but I was stuck. I started hearing about Reiki and determined to find out more I read everything I could get my hands on to find out more about this healing system. 

My ego brain however was still in charge at that point and was saying "don't be silly - Reiki is even more woo-woo than crystals!" I was struggling to make a decision when I opened a magazine and there was a feature all about Aromatherapy, Reflexology and Reiki. The angels were telling me to go for it - two of the things I already did plus the one I was thinking about. It couldn't have been clearer.

I found a lovely Reiki Master in Belfast and completed my level 1 and 2 training with him by mid-2011. Reiki gave my practice a whole new meaning and I was also able to use my crystals in part during the treatments. As many of you know who have had a Reiki treatment with me - I lay crystals on your chakra points to help amplify the energy.

Since 2011 I have trained as a Reiki Master and have gone on to study other healing therapies such as stress management, CBT, herbalism, acupressure and meditation. My passion though is still for energy healing and crystals. I feel now is the time to start bringing the crystal work back into focus so I can now offer some new treatments which focus specifically on crystal healing.

For any of you interested in learning more about Reiki please visit my Reiki training page where there are details of forthcoming workshops and training.

I also wanted to bring my love of the paranormal and all things esoteric into my business so I have started running a spiritual development circle each week. I deliberately called it a spiritual development circle rather than a psychic development circle as so many people have a negative association with the word "psychic". I believe that we are all gifted with more than just the 5 senses and that with a little work and encouragement we can all learn to develop our gifts. For more information or to find out when the next circle is beginning please either contact me or visit the Groups page.

Tarot and Angel card readings are also available - click here for more information.

Love, light & blessings,
