A Q&A with Reiki Practitioner Judith Andrew

We're thrilled to have Judith Andrew on the Maggie and Moe energy healing team. Judith is a reiki master, crystal healer, and radical forgiveness coach based in Brockport, New York, where she also owns the metaphysical store, Lightways. Her work with the Maggie and Moe designs included both reiki energy and the amazing crystal grid pictured above!

Here's our interview with Judith.

How did you get started with energy work?
About 10 years ago, when I was retiring from teaching, I opened a metaphysical store in our old restored barn.
Where did you train?
My training involved:

Integrated Energy Therapy with Steven Thayer,
Reiki Training, Usui and Karuna Reiki, and Holy Fire with William Rand
Reiki & Crystal Healing (essential oils, turning fork)
Peruvian Shamanic Illumination Energy Medicine
What is your favorite thing about doing energy work/reiki?
Connecting the body, mind, and spirit with the issues my clients are struggling with. I am a certified Radical Forgiveness Coach (Colin Tippings' work) and combine the Radical Forgiveness with Energy Medicine
In your own words, how does reiki work, and how will it work in the Maggie and Moe designs?
Reiki clears and releases blockages in the chakras, meridians, and cellular memory of the client so they can experience peace, harmony and balance in their lives. The designs can help with balancing and aligning the energy of the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual bodies, along with the etheric energy bodies surround the client.

What are some fun stories you have about some of your clients and the benefits they have seen from working with you?
The releasing of struggles my clients have had--physical, mental, and emotional--for many years. The energy work allows them to deeply release and move on from past trauma. I am a strong proponent of living in the present, with a focus on mindfulness and self care.
How would you describe the “flavor” or feel of the energy you send others?
My energy is soft and gentle. I am not “psychic.” I call on the angels and reiki energy to do the healing and balancing.
If people want to work with you one on one for distance sessions, what services do you provide?
Radical Forgiveness information and worksheet process
Reiki or IET treatment
Shamanic Illumination treatments

Where did you grow up?
Portland, Oregon

Besides energy work, what are your hobbies?
Gardening, Living on the beach of Lake Ontario and gathering sea glass and beach rocks, traveling, hiking, and nature

Do you have any pets?
Two cats. Alex and Ani.
