Meet Ashley Foster of Healing Petals

Today we’d like to introduce you to Ashley Foster.

Ashley, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
At a young age, I was always drawn to the metaphysical and magical side of life. I never grew out of it really. One day, I visited Psychic Eye bookshops in Sherman Oaks and got an amazing and enlightening tarot reading from Megan.

In the reading, she had some amazing things to say about my future. When asked about my career, she said, “You have an immense healing light that emanates through your hands. You can run your hands through a person’s aura and know exactly what needs to be healed and then be the channel to heal them.” I took that straight to the heart! Before the reading, I was at a crossroads, and unsure of where my path was taking me. After, I knew Reiki was where I was heading next.

Then, a couple of days later, my best friend surprised me by enrolling me in Reiki courses. I got my training completed and was certified in Reiki levels I & II. I was filled with passion in my heart and I felt my soul igniting. By the time I finished my first few practice sessions, I decided to make this my career.

I started my own business and opened Healing Petals on May 17th, 2018. Made a website, business cards, and started reaching out to people around the world to do Distance Reiki sessions. As of July 2018, I have done Reiki sessions across the U.S. and Ireland. I am so excited to see where this business is taking me, as it is so rewarding and can be done from anywhere in the world!

Has it been a smooth road?
It was a lot of brain power in order to learn everything there is to know about Reiki. Also, it takes a lot to be a Master/Teacher. I am working right now on being a Master and can’t wait to be one but it takes a while. The biggest struggle overall is wanting to heal everyone right now and knowing I can’t. It takes time and you always need permission from the person/animal that is needing to be healed.

Reiki is still pretty foreign too. A lot of people don’t know what it is, nor the benefits that come from receiving the services. Everything worth having comes after struggling in some way. We just have to conquer the feelings of doubt & fear and go forward to reach the point of receiving what we want to achieve. In my opinion, every struggle ends up being so worth it.

So, as you know, we’re impressed with Healing Petals – tell our readers more, for example what you’re most proud of as a company and what sets you apart from others.
Healing Petals is my personal Reiki business. I am a Reiki practitioner. I use the Universal Life Force energy to activate your body’s own natural ability to heal itself. This includes the body, mind, & spirit. It can be hands on or hands off. In-person sessions include a light relaxing massage. Distance sessions are just as effective as the in-person sessions they just can’t experience the massage which decreases the price. They can be done from anywhere in the world. No Skype call, phone call or any other communication needed. It is all done energetically which is amazing when you experience this yourself.

I am most proud of the feelings I get from performing sessions for people. I get tingles and pick up on all kinds of things intuitively when doing the session. Talking about the experience afterwords is always fun. We sometimes have similar visions, feelings, or sounds that we experience. It’s a wild, beautiful ride.

Healing Petals is unique because I tailor every session to each individual person. I mix all of my intuitive and metaphysical knowledge to create the perfect healing session to take you from feeling like a bud to a bloom.

Let’s touch on your thoughts about our city – what do you like the most and least?
The Valley is the best part of Los Angeles in my opinion. It’s beautiful and has a more homey feel as I am originally from Wichita, KS. The views from the Top of Topanga, to driving through Mulholland drive are absolutely stunning. The weather here in the valley is always the hottest but the great thing about LA is you can just go drive little ways and it will be at least 10 degrees cooler or more.

I’m sure this is everyone’s answer, but the worst thing about LA is the traffic. Honk, Honk!
