“I spent the entire drive home staring at clear blue skies after my reiki session with Amanda-Rachel, which is different for me; the scenery is usually a forgotten aspect, blending in with the usual blur of life as I race from here to there. But when I saw the sky this morning after my session, I randomly thought of beauty. When I thought of beauty, I thought of subtlety. And when I pondered subtlety, I briefly realized the magnificence of what Athena Academia is providing. For many people, including myself, a session with Amanda-Rachel is that quintessential first step along your spiritual journey - to experience an energetic dance, a sort of falling into liberation. With wisdom so deeply fundamental, Amanda-Rachel helps reintroduce you to the subtleties of you, and that might be the greatest gift you could ever give yourself. If you’re ever curious about all of this and don’t know where to start, Amanda-Rachel is waiting with a profound set of open arms. Thank you.” Love, Deon G.
“I’ve had reiki done once before but it was nothing like what I experienced today with Amanda-Rachel! Instead of just jumping in she began by easing me into calmer breathing patterns and played her singing bowl and tuning forks around me which was amazing. The session was so incredible, afterwards I felt such a deep sense of peace and the things Amanda-Rachel told me she noticed were exactly why I had been experiencing, both in the session and in my daily life. She helped me leave with some “homework” ideas for how to improve in the aspects of my life that needed it and even offered ideas on how to become more accountable so the mantras become consistent and really beneficial. Her connection to the universe is a gift and she uses it in a truly incredible way. I can’t wait until the next session.” - Dani Freeman
“First off my first reiki session with Amanda-Rachel was AMAZING! I had asked her if there was a way to do it on my birthday but because of prior plans she was unable to do it. However, she contacted me before my birthday explaining to me that her guides advised her to make it happen so we did! The session started off with a big glass of water and a drop of one her tinctures. I wrote down what I wanted to release and she started off playing singing bowls and chimes around me. The vibrations were so strong throughout my whole body it was like an awakening. It was so relaxing! She started working on me and throughout the sessions I felt twitching. She said the twitches were signals from my body that it was time to move on and so she did. I saw the color green at first and then a lot of white following and towards the end. I felt so refreshed and alive after the session. She gave some insight as to what I needed to tell myself and tips. It really was a great experience and I can’t wait to go again!” - Olivia Rivera
“Going to Amanda-Rachel’s Reiki certification was life changing. It was an honor to be trained under a master, 10 generations under the original Reiki master, Doctor Usui. Even though I’m already certified as a Reiki therapist, I feel like my skills have dramatically improved after her class. She was very informative, giving us useful information even beyond Reiki, helping us better understand the human condition. It was also very interactive, testing our skills amongst myself and my fellow classmates. Thank you amanda-rachel for such an enlightening experience. I can’t wait to get my Reiki Master certification with you next year!” - Sam Abraham Abdallatif
“Just had my 1st Reiki Session yesterday with Amanda-Rachel and I’m still at a loss for words! After doing some reading about Reiki and speaking to Amanda on a few occasions, I expected to get SOMETHING out of the session (just not quite sure what, and to what extent), and kept a completely open mind to a new experience. It wasn’t until the hour passed and she told me to slowly sit up and I opened my eyes that I was completely blown away at what I experienced. About 5-10 minutes into the session I lost sense of time and eventually started to astral project, for lack of a better term. I could sense my consciousness leaving my body, and at its height I could even see what and where Amanda was working on me. I could even feel heat coming from what I assume was her hands (my eyes were closed the entire time) on certain parts of my body she was working on. One of the most interesting parts was at the very end. I had the feeling that our consciousnesses were connected and she told me to open my eyes without actually speaking, as I opened my eyes for the first time just a few seconds before she verbally told me to slowly get up as the session came to an end. Once I fully came to, she explained to me the problematic areas she came across, and what she did to fix them, as well as what I can do myself to help these issues. Everything else about the session was comfortable, educational, enjoyable, etc as well. The setting was extremely peaceful and she explained quite a bit of her very interesting and extensive studies before we started. It’s been over 24 hours since the session and I am still remembering bits and pieces from the session sporadically throughout the day! For the sake of not writing an essay here, I will try and bring this to an end because I can go on and on talking about my Reiki session with Amanda and her amazing talents! I would recommend anyone to visit her for a session, even if you feel there’s nothing in your life that needs adjusting/fixing because you will still come away with a happy, glowing, blissful feeling! A+++ and will most definitely be going back to see her again as soon as possible! - Greg
“The reiki certification with amanda-rachel was amazing! She is so knowledgeable in crystals, chakras, history, and everything in general! It was such a pleasure to be able to take this training with her. I was amazed with how much I learned that day and the tools I left with as a reiki practitioner. Practicing reiki on the other students was fun but my favorite part was being attuned! After Amanda attuned me I felt the vibrations and a feeling I’ve never felt before, so refreshed and lively. It was a moment I’ll remember and cherish forever. I would highly recommend this training to anyone who is interested on learning more about reiki and how to practice it and learn it CORRECTLY! Thanks for everything Amanda-Rachel!” - Olivia Rivera
“Earlier this week, I had a healing Reiki session with Amanda. It was such a wonderful experience. I saw various things, and she told me numerous things that I did not expect. I saw a massive Buddha looking down at me while I was under. In addition, I saw a Rainbow that blew in like a ribbon floating in a breeze doing loops and twists . But it didn’t look like any ordinary rainbow, though. It’s seem to be like laser lines. It was one of the most beautiful clear visions I’ve ever seen in my mind’s eye during a meditative state. When Amanda told me when I am ready, to start wiggling my fingers and toes. I realized it was difficult for me to move my body. So it took a little time for me to feel my body again. After I opened my eyes, Amanda had told me that I had gone under very deeply . Days after the session, I felt so relaxed and calm and I even had this sense of clarity. Even my girlfriend says that I am definitely much calmer now. When she put the four elements one by one over me, Amanda saw a rapidly growing vegetation of grass, flowers, shrubs and then trees grow at the base of my feet when she applied earth. I thought that was the most amazing thing. I feel that everyone should go to Amanda for a Reiki session. And you will be amazed too. Thank you so much Amanda for allowing me to have this wonderful experience.” -M.K.
