|The Laying On Of Hands|
By Shirley Gibson
While I do have some formal training, much of what I know has been the result of stumbling around in the dark, trying what works, discarding what doesn't. I love exploring strange territories, enjoy new ideas, and find myself climbing out of the box on a regular basis.
Through the years, I have studied and practiced: Meditation, Mantras, Hinduism, Yoga, Astrology, Palmistry, Herbology, Ayurveda, Nutrition, Buddhism, Numerology, The Tarot, Runes, Taoism, Medicine Wheels, Native American Spirituality, Fire Walking, Dream Interpretation, Exploring The Dreamtime, Crystals and Stones, Art As Process, Drumming, Prayer, Angelic Intervention, The Violet Flame, Reiki, Psychic Surgery, Hypnotherapy, Light Language, Sacred Geometry, Color Therapy, Labyrinths, Subtle Energy Fields, Chakra Balancing, Aromatherapy, Shamanism, Animal Communication, Magick, Tea Leaves, Feng Shui, Ho'Oponopono, Creative Visualization, Chanting, and more.
I received my Reiki Master training and certification in 1997 from William Lee Rand of the International Center for Reiki training in Southfield, Michigan, and have been teaching Reiki ever since.
Other trainings include:
- Certification in Hypnotherapy from the Missouri Institute of Hypnotherapy - 2000

The purpose of this blog is to share what I have collected over the years so that it doesn't just sit in a box or a filing cabinet unread and unexplored. Feel free to share what you find of interest. Links to this site are always appreciated.
