A little about what I do; I am a Reiki Practitioner.
Reiki is a Japanese form of alternative medicine called “energy” healing. It’s a hands on healing, or hovering above, in which the practitioner allows the flow of “universal energy” to transfer through the palms of the practitioner to the patient. This in turn allows or encourages emotional and or physical healing to take place. - Nelly

When did you start your business? Was there something/someone who inspired you?

I started my Reiki business around 5 months ago. I had an opportunity to experience Reiki first handedly. It was then that I decided that this would be something I would love to introduce to loved ones and family members around me.
At the time, experiencing Reiki at first hand was a very euphoric experience for me and something I truly wanted to share as I had never physically felt anything quite like it before.

Would you say you reached all of your goals since you started or do you have more to achieve?

I am a firm believer that you really never attain every single one of your goals because we are constantly evolving and every chapter of your life introduces new opportunities and goals to strive for.

What are the ups and downs when dealing with the Arab community?

Reiki is a very interesting concept, that being said it’s not something I find any one type of community to be completely familiar with. Reiki has only been around for 100 years. What I find the most challenging is the concept of Reiki as you are using an intangible object to help in the healing of someone. That can be very confusing for some.

Is there anything you would change if you had to do it all over again?

I think for me the concept of regret or change is not something I tend to dip into much. I truly am a firm believer that every single event in your life leads you to exactly where you need to be.
Those challenges become opportunities that in turn allow you to not only learn but grow so that you are able to walk into the next chapter of your life much more prepared and hopefully a little more enlightened.

What challenges has Covid-19 brought to you and your business and how did you overcome them?

Covid-19 is something that I really did not struggle with. I have always been a home body and I definitely enjoy reading and meditation.
Covid has allowed me to really work on myself and has gifted me ample time with my twin boys Aiden & Noah, and of course my family. There’s always good in every trying situation, and I definitely chose to look at it with that perspective.
