About Sharmila Mali, Reiki Master Teacher/Practitioner
I have never been one of those people who always knew what they wanted to do. Life, career, relationships will always be a journey and I have finally figured out that work or anything for that matter canNOT define Who I Am. Everything I have experienced has expressed itself in so many different ways, it has shaped me and I have learned from it–but it will never contain me as I will always be changing.
This sounds vague, but if you go through the process of uncovering the layers that are artificially put there by society and culture, you will find your essence. Some of you know what I’m taking about and some of you don’t. I never thought I would be pursuing hands-on healing as a career, for me it started off as a path for Living, and it turned out to be the best way to use all of the talents and abilities that Life has given me.
Reiki and Energy work changed my life completely. As a child, I was interested in the unseen, the things one feels beyond the five senses. I was fascinated by paranormal phenomenon. It led me to ask the ultimate question at 14, what is the purpose for being on earth? I have read different spiritual philosophies and my passion is to Live: a great, healthy life. A life of balance.
Listening to your own inherent wisdom–intuition–is one of the keys I have found that brings me balance. It has been quite the journey to trust something that is invisible yet so incredibly personal and tangible. Quite the paradox! It’s been a lifelong path of learning between the difference of listening to my intuition and not listening and where that puts me in life. So, NOW, finally, I choose to listen to it, and all the experiences bring me back to the same conclusion: listening keeps me balanced, not listening keeps me imbalanced, but it will eventually lead me to the Now. It just seems that listening and following that voice keeps me, Present, in the Now.
Following this intuitive path, has led me to do interesting things: travel back and live in my birth country of Nepal. I have always wanted to do something to help Nepal and I’ve done that with photography and writing and also by starting a non-profit massage therapy school. It was some of the greatest work I could ever do: teaching massage and Reiki, designing a curriculum, recruiting Nepali’s that were from different socio-cultural economic backgrounds. These amazing people, together in one room, learning the power of their own touch was an extraordinary experience to be a part of and to witness.
Even that wasn’t fully expressing my passion, however, and I had to move on from my beloved Himalayan Healers Massage Therapy center. So I moved back to the U.S. again, and long story short, started my own Reiki and Energy Therapy, and I hope to thrive and grow into something beyond my wildest dreams.
I know I am on the right path because it nurtures and serves me well, and I am excited to see where it takes me next! I find this is the best way to do something for Nepal, the best way to serve humanity, just Being My True Self, after all, isn’t that what everyone is trying to get back to?
So thank you for taking the time to visit this site, it has been a life long, on-going plan that you are witnessing unfolding before your (and mine) eyes! I share these gifts with you and support you to Be Your True Self.
With love, Sharmila
