We had the good fortune of connecting with Javante Battle and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Javante, can you share a quote or affirmation with us?
Yes I can. My favorite quote is:

“No excuses. No complaints. Only Adjustments.”

This quote came to mind when I was at a difficult place in my life. What it means is if I don’t give energy to excuses, if I don’t waste time complaining, my mind will only focus on finding solutions to my problems, forcing me to adapt and adjust to whatever is in front of me.

I like this quote because no matter what I’m facing, no matter how insurmountable it seems, this quote always places me in the right frame of mind to move forward and face any challenge.

What should our readers know about your business?
At UniverSoul Healing we provide a safe space for individuals to dive deep within themselves, to facilitate holistic healing and spiritual development through the use of the healing art called Reiki. Reiki is a non-invasive, ancient Japanese technique that uses Chi (life-force energy) to heal the body. We provide one-on-one private sessions, group sessions, distant healing’s, we provide services at events and pop-ups as well as teach at all levels.

In our practice we focus on service first, showing up for the client in the way they need us to. Some clients need physical healing, some need emotional support others may need guidance on their spiritual path. We tailor our therapeutic approach to our individual clients.

We’re most proud of the impact we’ve made over this past year, since Sept. 2020 we’ve had 13 Reiki classes and we’ve initiated over 110 students into this healing art! During a time when our country and economy quite literally ‘closed down’, we started our practice and made a huge impact in our local community. We’re excited for all the lives that will be changed from the students currently practicing Reiki and for those who will come in the future.

Where we are today in our practice is a testament to our dedication and consistency to our own healing journey and the desire to help others begin theirs. It wasn’t easy because we live in a Western Society that is dominated by material desires and physical needs, so we’ve learned how to overcome this challenge by demonstrating the power this healing therapy has in changing ones life, that of our clients, students and our own.

There have been so many lessons learned on this journey but the most important have been Faith and Trust. Again during a time when our country virtually shut down and people were afraid to engage, we had to believe, trust and have faith that what we were doing would be enough to take care of our family and equally provide value in the community.

I wish for the world to know that this is just the beginning, we’re entering into a different time in our history which will require unconventional ways to navigate life. Reiki will be a primary source for healing as time goes on in our future.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
To start off the week long trip, we would have a road trip to Sedona and spend the day in nature. After that we could take the rest of the week to explore the Valley by visiting Downtown Phoenix and any marketplaces that might be happening during that time. We would visit places like the Churchill which have different restaurants to choose from, good music and good vibes. I would introduce Green New American Vegetarian, that’s a must have while in the city. After those few places its then about meeting people in the local community, the experiences cultivated during the hang outs is what will make the trip.

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I’d like to dedicate this shout out to my beautiful wife Betty Battle, without her love and support I wouldn’t have made it this far in my journey. At a time when our foundation was shifting she gave me the space to find myself and continued to love me unconditionally even though she didn’t understand the changes I was going through.
