My Story

Nicole A. Gervais - A Wellness MindFor as long as I could remember, family and friends have confided in me about all kinds of things. Complete strangers have poured their hearts and shared with me their life’s problems. The interesting thing is that I always listen, then manage to offer words of wisdom and comfort. At times, I can relate to them, other times, I just lend an ear. By the end of the conversation, they walk away with a smile on their face, freshly armed with a positive outlook on life. For my part, I feel a sense of accomplishment knowing that I made a difference in someone’s life. And that makes me happy.

My story begins with the sudden loss of my sweet sister-in-law a few years ago. Her abrupt departure from my life shook me down to my very core, and the grief seemed almost too much to bear. During this time, a new friend offered some distance healing to both my brother and me, to help ease our sorrow. Never had I heard someone offer such a thing, and the words were confusing, yet intriguing.  I remember looking at my brother and saying “What is distance healing?”. Naturally, curiosity got the better of us, and we Googled it.

Little did I know, this moment would alter the course of my life, and guide me towards a new path and to the discovery of Reiki.  From there, everything changed. I began to see the world with newly opened eyes. An awakening of my surroundings occurred, almost as though I was watching a beautiful sunrise after a stormy night. Nature suddenly became fresher and the smells richer; feelings of gratitude welled inside of me, and I felt alive again. I have since been attuned to Reiki, and I am now a Reiki Master (April 2017).

I have always carried the desire to help others, and it comes so naturally to me. Offering words of wisdom, encouragement and positive affirmations certainly feels like second nature to me. As I started to follow this new path, I discovered new tools that would compliment my eagerness to nurture. The introduction of Reiki in my life increased my confidence, and provided personal healing for me that I have long ignored. Along the way, I also discovered essential oils and their healing properties. There is still so much to learn about all the natural gifts life has available to anyone willing to listen.

Lately, however, I have heard whispers, almost a nagging voice, encouraging me to find a different way to help people around me. This new realization is what brought me to this very blog, and naturally to you. Please join me on my path to self healing of body and mind. Together, we will discover this beautiful new world, the numerous health benefits of essential oils, and of course, achieve A Wellness Mind.

Welcome to the rest of your life. Enjoy!!!
