Welcome to the personal blog of Danielle Stimpson, Reiki Master, Integrated Energy Therapy Practitioner/Teacher and Intuitive.

Over the years, this blog has been a space for me to share my personal thoughts and insights related to healing. My viewpoints often differ from that of my colleagues, and I feel that now is the time for more diversity in the healing arts discourse.

My story, experiences and theories are seldom what folks would assume that of a Reiki Master to be. I struggle with PTSD, neurological impairments that impact my mobility and more. My healing space is trauma informed, LGBTQ friendly and free of judgement and “victim blaming”. Additionally,  I have a unique take on the “Law of Attraction”…you won’t find “The Secret” on my bookshelf!

I look forward to updating this blog more often so that we can all glean some perspective and allow it to inform our healing practices (or not) as we each deem fit. These are my impressions, experiences and thoughts…nothing more. I invite you to question what you know and believe for just a short moment and think about what else could be…
