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

Hi JodiAnn, how does your business help the community?
I help empower people to enjoy finding & living their true path; whatever that means to them. By helping people to find their individual inner journey while operating in the world and keeping balance, they can live a joyful & fulfilling life. As they apply techniques and philosophies that I share with them they live a better life with less stress and inspire the people around them to do the same. They can use sessions of Reiki, Divinely guided readings or my exclusive, customized Shamanic Resets to heal themselves physically, mentally and/or spiritually. The Reveal Retreats in Sedona give them 4 days to experience so much peace and learn coping skills in beautiful places and create enjoyable habits to bring home with them. I have a knack for bringing the mysterious inner journey to mainstream America and support the way to inner fulfillment.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
During my 20 years as a licensed massage therapist I was introduced to Reiki. It’s an ancient Tibetan healing art that was lost then rediscovered by Japanese Dr. Mikao Usui in early 1900’s. I had such profound experiences with Reiki that lead me to becoming a Reiki Master/Teacher (9th generation direct line from Dr. Usui.) In 2003 I was guided through my meditations to move from CT to Las Vegas and started my business offering Reiki sessions, Reiki classes and Divinely guided intuitive readings. My business has evolved to include holding The Reveal Retreats where the focus is on expansion and alignment through ongoing self awareness and connecting with nature. I’m very excited to announce my latest offer which is an extension of sorts of the retreat material with a much broader variety of topics in a 12 week program. My passion is to help people from all walks of life to understand themselves more and love themselves more. Life hasn’t always been easy but through challenges I found what I believe to be some keys to living a happy, productive life and most importantly to trust my own intuition over anything else. How awesome it would be if everyone would trust themselves more and follow their true inner guidance! I believe words are so powerful so I listen intently and I’m very mindful of conversations with my clients. I work with integrity, respect and compassion. I enjoy supporting people to find and follow their own paths, at their own pace without judgment. And I love introducing them to new ways of healing physically, mentally, spiritually!

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
I live in Vegas so I suggest hiking at Red Rock Canyon, experiencing meals from some of the best chefs in the world here, visiting the Bellagio’s Dancing Waters and conservatory, Fremont St Experience and and of the shows on the strip.

But I’m guessing you want to mention places local to Phoenix. In that case…

I’d go to any of the crystal shops especially Storm Wisdom (https://.stormwisdom.business.site).

True Food & Flower Child are the restaurants I recommend for healthy, delicious food.

Spa day at The Phoenician in Scottsdale (https://www.thephoenician.com) is a must!

Hiking at Papago Park and Hole In The Rock.

A night at The Lost Leaf for some jazz.

And I’d have to try a session or two at a place like ThuderHorseHealing.com.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
As I’ve grown through each decade the mentors shift. Realizations from challenging experiences and support of friends & family have helped me come to this point in life: happier and more grounded than ever. The more I connect with God/Universe/InnerSelf through meditation the more inspired I am to share the knowledge I’ve accumulated through the years. I’ve been greatly influenced by many books on universal laws and the inner workings of the self by emotional/spiritual leaders such as Deepak Chopra, Louise Hay, Marianne Williamson and many more. Currently my go to’s are the insights of the Celestine Prophecy book series by James Redfield, The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz, The Life of Water by Dr. Masuro Emoto, and quite honestly by the more spiritual songs by Led Zeppelin & Lenny Kravitz. (Seriously, listen to the words of Kashmir or In My Time of Dying or Let Love Rule!) People that are kind, practice integrity and are generous with their spirit are my role models…and there are many!
