Kathleen received this message from Spirit during her Reiki II attunement; to this day, it represents the principle that guides her spiritual path. Learning to live in gratitude is essential for spiritual growth, including gratitude for the inevitable challenges, obstacles, and difficulties that life brings. It is within those challenges that the greatest opportunities for growth occur, leaving us stronger and more resilient. Gratitude is a fundamental component of Kathleen’s soul purpose, and continues to drive her personal mission of service.

The creation of UniverSoul Heart represents the culmination of my lifelong interest in spirituality, metaphysics, and the holistic human experience. Although the  journey to this destination was far from straightforward, the life experiences were necessary for my soul’s growth and fueled my passion to be of service.

My education includes a B.A. in Psychology and a M.A. in Criminology. I also received certification as an expert polygraphist and embarked upon a law enforcement career which spanned more than two decades. During this time, I relied on my knowledge of psychology and human behavior to successfully resolve various assigned cases. Over time, my interest in humanity and the total human experience deepened, accompanied by an increasingly urgent desire to be of service. The law enforcement career unexpectedly accelerated this yearning, especially during those times when I was required to function as counselor and confidant in my duties. I realized that these opportunities to be of service were most fulfilling, far eclipsing the more traditional law enforcement roles. Witnessing the devastating effects of crime released a deep need to help and assist in any way possible. This awareness guided me to follow my intuition and develop the necessary skills to facilitate holistic wellness in others.

 I have substantial experience in teaching undergraduate college courses and as Program Director of a Law Enforcement Academy.

I also completed extensive post-graduate studies in Mental Health Counseling and Transpersonal Psychology.

My Reiki training includes Reiki Master Teacher in Usui, Holy Fire III and Kundalini Reiki. I am also a Certified Past-Life Regression Therapist, and a Certified Crystal Healer, offering Reiki Crystal Healing sessions.

In 2013, I added teaching to my healing and wellness toolkit. In 2020, Reiki’s  guidance redirected my focus to working with individuals during this pivotal time, and I’ve stepped away from teaching at this time. 

I am committed to raising awareness of the benefits of Reiki and holistic wellness. To that end, I’ve  been a co-host as well as a presenter and sponsor for the Reiki Rays Annual Summit since 2017. My presentation at the 2022  Reiki Healing Summit was “Reiki as a Life Companion.

I’ve been a featured guest in numerous radio interviews and also hosted “UniverSoul Heart Radio with Kathleen Johnson- Sensible Spirituality for Everyday Living“, on Transformation Talk Radio. Most recently, I co-hosted “Beyond the Reiki Gateway” podcast, Seasons 1-3.

In 2016, I co-founded the Northeast PA Reiki Connection, a Reiki community dedicated to promoting unity and harmony among all those who walk the Reiki path.

In April 2022, I was deeply honored to be selected as Top Reiki Master of the Decade by the International Association of Top Professionals (IAOTP) for “outstanding leadership, commitment and dedication.”

In my personal life, I’m committed to a compassionate plant-based lifestyle, and, in 2021, became certified as a Plant-Based Nutritionist through Cornell University’s Nutrition Studies Program. I’m also mother to 4 grown sons and grandmother to two beautiful babies, who each clutch a substantial piece of my heart in their chubby little hands. 💜

Finally, I love to write, and my articles about Reiki and Spirituality are published on Reiki Rays,  Reiki News Magazine, and Writing a book is top on my bucket list and I know that Reiki, as my life companion, will be with me every step of the way.

Thank you for reading!  

What Sets Kathleen Apart?

By Jodie Helm

Let’s look at what makes Kathleen different and sets her apart from other Reiki practitioners. To begin with, Kathleen speaks to clients before the session to get to know them a bit, so she can begin to get a feel for them, their needs, and how best to help them.  This is before the session even begins, usually on a separate day.  Each session is particular to the individual, from choosing crystals to targeting specific areas of concern. 

One of the most amazing things that sets Kathleen apart from others is that she receives divine guidance while she’s conducting a Reiki session.  She has several high Guides, including some of the Archangels, who are regular participants, who guide and help her and add their energy to hers as she treats her clients.  Through them, and through her own gifts, she can access information about past lives during a session, and all kinds of other interesting information that I’ve never known anyone else to access during a Reiki session.  She knows about chakras I’ve never even heard of!  She doesn’t just feel the energy, she sees it and guides it with an expertise that is very rare. 

Kathleen combines the energy with the guidance, and the results are outstanding.  She includes all the guidance and information she receives in a post-report, and it goes beyond just health and energy information.  She often receives insight in other areas, which she always shares with her clients.  So, one healing session is actually three, including a pre-treatment meeting, the treatment itself, and a post-treatment report containing all the insight and information she receives from high Guides and Angels and whatever discoveries she makes along the way.  I don’t know anyone who does what she does or who offers such a comprehensive, complete, detailed treatment.

Kathleen is a very gifted energy worker, not just because of her sensitivity and skill while working with energy, but because it’s part of who she is as a person.  Reiki is an extension of Kathleen.  You cannot separate the two.  It’s not what she does, it’s who she is.  Reiki, for Kathleen, is a vehicle she has chosen to use to serve, help, comfort, heal, and treat other people.  It doesn’t just come from the higher dimensions, it goes through her heart where she infuses it with all the love and compassion that is so much a part of who she is.  When you get a Reiki treatment from Kathleen, you get a piece of her, also, and it’s filled with the love that is as equally a part of her as is the Reiki.

With the creation of UniverSoul Heart, Kathleen’s mission is to assist others in transforming their lives in accordance with the Highest Good. This mission is her soul’s purpose, as she gratefully and joyfully anticipates-

“The Blessings Yet to Be.”

I felt like I already knew and trusted her, making her my preferred choice. During our pre-session conversation she explained the process thoroughly and answered all of my questions.” Click to read more
