Meet Jenna Montgomery of Cosmic Reiki LA

Today we’d like to introduce you to Jenna Montgomery.

Thanks for sharing your story with us Jenna. So, let’s start at the beginning, and we can move on from there.
“Cosmic Reiki LA came when I was looking for a different path. I was searching for another way to help people outside of the medical field I was in. In 2017, I kept thinking about getting a certification to be an herbal medicine practitioner.

I wanted to assist people in need, but I didn’t want to use herbs, tools or chemicals. I had a feeling that there had to be some way to treat people naturally because we have everything inside of us. The use of herbs is beautiful, but at some point we have to move on and own our healing. If not, we become dependent. Common thoughts involve doubting your own ability to heal. I’m all about pushing boundaries, so if mind is over matter, we control our bodies and our environments.

Reiki is universal healing energy. I use no tools, herbs or chemicals to treat people and my clients have lasting results.  I can practice reiki anywhere at any time. That’s what I love about it. It’s boundless like my mind.

Helping people is my calling. Ok, I may not seem like I used to be a party animal, but I was. Young people should have as much fun as they can so they can figure out what they really want to do. I waited to go to college, and it was a really good thing. I chose a field that I keep as my plan ‘b’ that I can use when I need it. So, I feel secure and supported by all of the great choices I made in the past.

When I moved back to LA last February 2018, I came back with a purpose. I came back home to follow my dreams and take a leap of faith. Wellness and holistic health companies are well received here on the west coast more than the south. So, I took all my opportunities, dedicated hours to improving my craft and built up my brand in a few weeks. With the help of my mother, we got our website, equipment, and supplies together in February and March.

By May, we had our first event called A Vegan Affair. We filled our hearts with love and service for the community, so we didn’t have any fear or doubts. Since then, Cosmic Reiki LA’s family has grown. We have certified new Reiki masters and made so many new friends. We proved to ourselves that Reiki could be a lucrative business in an oversaturated new age market.”

Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
Events have always gone well for Cosmic Reiki LA. Setting up social media accounts, making media, making flyers and other resources had come pretty easy. Some struggles have been online in terms of working on the website and getting it to look the way I want. I never studied C++ or coding. I am an amateur digital artist which has helped me with editing photos, but website building is way more involved.

Another issue I’ve had has been finding people to collaborate with. A lot of people say what I want to hear, but they don’t follow through. I understand that not everyone is true to their word. It’s better for business to appear agreeable, but I would rather have people be honest about their goals. I am super grateful for the others who have supported Cosmic Reiki LA and have helped me get clients and events. Shout out to all the fearless friends!

Please tell us about Cosmic Reiki LA.
My business is a Los Angeles based reiki service. We are certified Usui Reiki Master teachers. We specialize in Usui Reiki and chakra balancing. I am most proud of bringing reiki awareness! I am a Reiki practitioner who looks for ways to promote the wonderful healing power of Reiki to the community, and the response has been overwhelming.

By sharing the knowledge about this sacred ancient art form, I break up and shake up people’s limited list of options in terms of holistic healing. Reiki is universal healing energy which can be used for physical and non-physical ailments. It is recognized as a useful complementary treatment for issues such as depression, high blood pressure, insomnia, and headaches. The list goes on.

What sets Cosmic Reiki LA apart is how we care about people over profit. It is a joy to serve, and we make an effort to help those who need it most. We have gone out of our way to make reiki treatments and our Reiki course easily accessible and affordable. We have bridged the gap by bringing Reiki to the community for the improvement of the entire community as a whole.

Do you look back particularly fondly on any memories from childhood?
I have a great memory of dancing with my sister. We came up with a dance routine to the Klondike bar ice cream commercial. We were so glam, dancing down the staircase to that song. We were like Marilyn Monroe and Jane Russell in Gentlemen Prefer Blonds. That was a movie we used to watch together all the time! I still know those songs.
