Do you struggle with important decisions in your life? Do you wish you could more easily see the bigger picture and guide yourself towards your best possible outcome? Would you like to confirm a 'gut' feeling that you have? 

Akashic Soul Path Readings

These readings are private phone meetings with me to access your soul record and clearly identify your soul's path.

Why is this important?

Did you ever make a decision - even a simple one - that changed the course of your life, for better or worse? This decision making process can become simplified and more intuitive when you know your higher purpose and the path towards it. Many people ask me for advice when faced with decisions and I feel strongly that these decisions can be made easily and independently with a clearer understanding of the bigger picture - of what we as souls want and need to experience in this life for our highest good and our highest possible potential.

What does an Akashic Soul Path Reading involve?

A reading is 20 or 40 minutes by phone or Skype. We book your time in advance and I call you at our agreed-upon time. You are in a quiet location free of distractions, responsibilities and tasks for your reading.

During our time together I will give you a snapshot of your physical, emotional, mental and spiritual health based on the effect of patterns over lifetimes. I will offer you clear insights into what you as a soul wants and needs to explore and learn in this lifetime: important experiences, lessons and answers.

I will also be a conduit to help convey to you important and critical messages from higher realms, from your inner guidance, life and healing guides who are looking out for your highest good.

All sessions are completely private and confidential. After our session I will e-mail you a link to download the recording of your Akashic Soul Path Reading. Please download it within seven days if you wish to keep it.

What People are Saying

"During my Akashic Soul Path Reading with Salima, a profound feeling of expansion and peace came over me. Salima shared the messages she received so authentically and eloquently that every word resonated with me. I felt so loved, supported and empowered after my session with her. This truly was a beautiful experience of connecting with Higher Realms. I would definitely recommend her service to anyone who wishes to receive answers to their innermost questions. Thank you Salima for sharing your gift so graciously."
     - Neelam Hirji, YRDSB educator, author of Precious Poems by The Divine

"I was very pleased with the reading and how Salima relayed the information. There was a lot to take in and she made it easy to follow everything. It also gave me a confidence boost and reinforced certain plans I have been considering."
     - E.M., Toronto

"There are times when your mind tries to talk you out of what your heart knows. The reading with Salima, although it feels so quick, gets right in there. It speaks to your heart and allows your mind to accept that your hopes and dreams are real. It brings the body, mind and soul into a state of calm and joy to hear that it is understood. When Salima spoke about a path I am guided to take in regard to my work; she didn’t know what I do, and when she spoke to me of working with my hands in art and healing, I got an entire body rush of tingles and goosebumps and heard Salima say "whoa!", and that she just experienced the same rush. The reading helped me feel more confident on the path I am on, to trust and to move forward. It feels really good!"  
     - Candice Craig, Toronto

"This was a beautiful experience for me and I highly recommend it to anyone who may be looking for some divine guidance. It allowed for introspection and having the recording to listen to repeatedly was helpful." 
     - Rashma Beharry, Toronto

“Thank you for your wonderful Akashic reading. I appreciate your time, your wisdom, your ability to connect to the knowledge and your gift in expressing and explaining the information that you are receiving. You speak with such clarity and you focus in on what really matters. You are truly gifted. The reading was such a profound and moving experience for me. It confirmed so much – that I am on my path - as well as explaining certain personality traits. Even though I had never really thought about past lives, the things you told me resonated so strongly within me and elicited such a strong and powerful visceral reaction, as if the events had just happened. I was able to release a lot of grief which was extremely healing. I am grateful to you and feel so blessed that you are in my life. I would strongly recommend your Akashic readings to anyone without hesitation.”
     - Nancy Anjali Weiser, Certified Instructor, Corporate, Private & Kids Yoga, Heart & Soul Yoga

Develop Your Own Psychic and Healing Abilities

After Readings, I often get asked if I always had these abilies. I didn't. Not really. I did have random experiences: flashes, premonitions and often sensed that I wasn't alone, but never really understood them or took them seriously. I also couldn't make them happen at will.  

Sometimes I was afraid of them. I had no idea that these abilities could be nurtured and could be used for the highest of good, for myself and for others. 

All of this changed when I received a Reiki treatment and asked my Reiki Master to teach me how to practice Reiki for my own self healing. I soon started to receive health information about people I was practising Reiki with and was able to give them meaningful messages that they were meant to hear. To enhance my skills and my ability to help people, I learned Psychic Skill Building. Now these skills are part of my everyday healing work.

If you would like to begin to harness these skills for yourself, or make them more trustworthy and reliable for your own highest good and for the good of others, consider taking the 2-Day Reiki Level One Course in Toronto or the Psychic Skill Building Course in Toronto. Both are live, hands-on, small group experiences and are excellent ways to develop the natural capacities that are your human birthright and to develop real skills and talents in psychic sensing and healing.

2-Day Courses in Toronto  

Are you sick and tired of being sick and tired? Do you want more energy and time for the people and things you love the most? Do you have a health condition that is dragging you down? Simply put...

Would you like to feel better? 

We all would. What if you could simply and naturally relieve stress, release headaches, pains, muscle tension; sleep easier and look and feel fresher?
You can. One simple tool can help you feel better and can help you help others too. Reiki is a natural, holistic and powerful force that anyone can use for better health.   
Learn to heal yourself and others

While anyone can receive a Reiki Treatment, the ability to harness and practice Reiki yourself comes through the attunement process in a course with a qualified Reiki Master Teacher. 

It all starts with you. With Reiki you have: 

  • More vitality and freshness
  • Better and deeper sleep
  • Lower stress levels
  • Less aches, pains and illness
  • Reduced side effects of medications or therapies
  • More peace and joy
  • Increased intuitive skills and energy sensitivity
  • Up to 15% organ detoxification
  • The ability to help others receive all of these benefits too!

Learning Reiki is highly recommended for you if you have a stressful, active lifestyle and want a natural way of re-balancing and restoring energy and harnessing good health. It's fantastic for you if you're a parent, caregiver or professional, as it provides you with the ability to quickly self-heal, regain balance and energy so you can live with presence, vitality and freshness. 

And once you have been attuned to Reiki, it's yours to harness for life!

What Students are Saying

"My life is changed. I'm different, happy and excited about life again, and I know you wont take credit for this but THANK YOU! Even if I never go further, I finally feel connected. I hated going home alone for a long time, but after the first class, I felt surrounded with good mates or something. My connection to people has started to feel more authentic. Again, thank you."
- Louisa Vaszary (Toronto)

"Thank you, Salima, for the training and a wonderful experience. You provide a open, loving place for discussion and learning. I look forward to many more opportunities to "grow".
- Lynn Perry 
(Personal Trainer and Corporate Consultant, Toronto)

"I gave a Reiki session yesterday. It was amazing. I felt the presence of a lady with me watching. I described her to the person receiving Reiki -- it turns out I was describing her grandmother! What confirmed it was the detail of what she was wearing. As I saw her I could feel a cool breeze, strange because minutes earlier I was sweating. It turns out the person receiving Reiki has the most incredible night sweats! Every time I give Reiki I feel inspired to do more. I just wanted to thank you again for teaching me and opening me up to Reiki."

"Expansion, connection, support, and love are just some of the words I could use to describe the unexplainable. My experience of taking the psychic course was incredible. This course is like no other. I instantly felt shifts around and within me during the course and after. Salima and Jess offered a very comfortable and peaceful environment for me. Their very supportive teaching method allowed me to feel safe to surrender to all that I was learning and sensing. I would highly recommend this course to all who wish to discover their source power within. We all have what it takes!"

How to Choose a Great Reiki Instructor and Course

"When the student is ready, the master will appear". I was lucky that this was my experience, but it's not the case for everyone.

You may want to research a bit before choosing a Reiki Master Teacher. And rightly so. I've had a number of people contact me who want to be "re-attuned" after learning Reiki elsewhere, and others who haven't learned and are shopping around for the right teacher. To help you, here is what to look for.

The ideal Reiki Course will have:

  • About 16 hours of training. A Level One course is focused on Reiki only and is spaced over two or more days, but all completed within a week. 
  • A small group size. Two to eight students are ideal and actually manageable by an instructor. This way, you get the benefit of sharing learning with other students, who you practice with, while receiving enough individual guidance from your instructor. If there are more than eight students in the attunement room, don't be one of them.
  • Qualifying students. Attunements should never be given to those hospitalized, under 13 or to those who are more than three months pregnant. Anyone having terminated a pregnancy must receive a Reiki treatment by a practitioner fluent in spiritual healing prior to their course.
  • Four individual Reiki Level One attunements. Four attunements will give you the full ability to channel Reiki for yourself and informally for others.
  • Practice Time. At least one self-treatment over the course time, and at least two treatments on others under the guidance of the instructor. 
  • Reiki Manual covering Reiki History and Practice. The manual is a complement to what is taught in the class; history, theory and practice elements should all be present in a manual.
  • Ongoing / Continuing Education and Practice. Good teachers offer monthly Reiki Shares - where students come to practice Reiki with further guidance and coaching and receive treatments from other students and share experiences. 
  • In-person training. I can't stress this enough. Learning Reiki online is questionable to begin with and will not benefit you in the long run because you will lose out on a personal connection with the teacher, and a community to practice and continue practising with. If you don't have an instructor in your area, consider travelling for a course or getting a group to learn together and inviting an instructor to come to you.

By the end of your course, you will have experienced shifts in your sensitivity to energy, be encouraged to practice on yourself daily, and can confidently give Reiki treatments to others.

The Ideal Reiki Master Teacher will have:

  • The ability to read auras and sense energy congestion and the root cause of that congestion.
  • The ability to sense and help clear away emotional and spiritual blockages.
  • An understanding of what Reiki energy is and where Reiki healing comes from. 
  • A personal dedication to self-care (daily or regular self-Reiki practice, meditation and ideally other forms of self-care). 
  • Experience. A true Reiki Master Teacher has taken her or his Level Three / Reiki Master Course and waited at least a year with lots of training before taking their Reiki Master Teacher course, just to be able to teach Reiki Level One.
  • The ability to look at a prospective student and assess where they are energetically, rather than simply welcoming anyone who wants to pay to take a course at any level. 
  • The ability to clearly tell you where your own energy is congested and how to balance it.
  • The willingness to speak with you and answer your questions thoroughly before you take a course. 
  • An openness to having you contact existing students to inquire about the instructor / course.
After your training, your instructor should continue to provide ongoing support and opportunities for further learning and developing beyond your Level One course.


Once you have completed your Reiki training according to the above requirements, you will have been properly attuned to channel Reiki for yourself and others and can harness Reiki for life. There is no need to be re-attuned. Even if you don't practice often, pick it up again by giving yourself a few consecutive daily self-treatments.

In fact, if you've been properly attuned to Reiki by a qualified instructor, you will notice a lot of development coming from your own daily self-practice. Like the saying goes, "You get out of it what you put into it". If however, you continue practising and feel as if something is missing, that you aren't developing a heightened sensitivity, you can always find a qualified instructor who you feel is the right one to be assessed by and receive training from.

Know that a new Reiki Master Teacher can only teach Level One and cannot start teaching Level Two students until one of her or his own Level One students returns to request to learn Level Two. One of her or his own Level Two students must return to request to learn Level Three before the Reiki Master Teacher can teach a newcomer Level Three, and the same goes for teaching Level Four, the Master Teacher Level. There is quality control built in. If the teacher doesn't have students returning to request a higher level of training, surely something is amiss.

Each Level has its own Training

Over time, you may want to take the Reiki Level Two course to learn how to send distance healing and find and clear away the deeper mental and emotional roots of symptoms. A Level Two course should be taught independently from a Level One course as it is a huge step forward and there are four distinct attunements for Level Two and these will open you up to be able to harness double the amount of Reiki energy. Taking a Level One and Level Two course together waters down your learning and would require eight attunements -- too powerful to experience all at once. The Level Three or Reiki Master Course is another leap forward, has four attunements and requires a high level of practice, experience and work with the instructor before the course can be taken. Level Four, which is teacher training or the Reiki Master Teacher course, requires at bare minimum, a full year of intense practice and preparation.

In many schools Levels One and Two are taught together and Levels Three and Four are taught together, which is an indication of poor quality of a course and lack of understanding of an instructor, and even of the instructor him or herself being improperly attuned or not attuned at all to Reiki.

Many students are eager to learn and develop, which is fantastic, but there is no substitution for thorough training and practice. Many people are eager to rush the process. This is the reason why few Reiki Master Teachers themselves are properly attuned and why Reiki has become so watered down. It is also the reason why many clients come to a Siam Reiki practioner and are blown away by the quality of healing they receive. I've been told by a client that one Reiki treatment was the equivalent of ten years of therapy!


Many people ask me how Siam Reiki is different from Usui Reiki. All Reiki that is practised today has come through Master Mikao Usui. Although Reiki itself is timeless, Master Usui is the person who harnessed this energy and made it available for use in our modern day. The word "Reiki" is a Japanese word, simply because Master Usui happened to be Japanese. So no matter what school of Reiki you learn from, if it's called "Reiki", it is all Usui Reiki. The different lineages are branches of his students, including Mrs. Hawayo Takata, who took Reiki beyond Japan and taught it far and wide.

Siam Reiki is a very powerful lineage of Master Usui's, mainly because it has the highest standards known in Reiki and due to the purity of the Reiki energy channelled. Students in Siam Reiki develop an intuitive capacity that is cultivated and highly encouraged, the result being that they channel very powerful and specific healing that greatly benefits those they treat.

Self-Reiki BadgeDo You Want to Learn Reiki?

No matter where you learn Reiki, if you are properly attuned by a true Reiki Master Teacher, you will notice that Reiki is a catalyst for change in your life. It opens up new understanding and is a wonderful tool for positive change, whether in the quality of health, relationships, success in work life, or spirituality. If you follow the guidelines here, you will have a great Reiki Course and instructor and in turn, Reiki itself will change your life.

3 Things I Learned from Giving Reiki in a Hospital Ward

My mom (a 3-time kidney transplant recipient) has been admitted to the hospital three times in two months, nauseous, vomiting, reeling and barely able to walk or hold up a fork. Hardly a walk in the park for her or the family. Nonetheless, somehow each time she was admitted she seemed to be getting happier. It confirmed something that I had sensed before. Giving someone Reiki in the hospital is one of the best things for them. I'll tell you why.

1. Sleep Kicks In

Search the internet for "sleep" and the results will turn up thousands of articles about how to sleep better. If we are a culture of people obsessed with something, it's sleep. Why is this? Perhaps because we realize how tired we are but can't stop.

Once someone ends up in a hospital bed they're usually in a state of total exhaustion. And then there are all these noises from machines, from the ward, from stranger room-mates who could simply be breathing too loudly for our taste. Half the time I give Reiki, the recipient will tend to fall asleep for at least a few minutes. And it's a good thing. During deep sleep, the body releases most of its growth hormone, which doesn't just make you taller; it stimulates your immune system.

2. Heart Rate Goes Down

Heart rate variability (the range at which the heart beats) is an indicator of health. The larger this range the better off we are. Why? Because it's an indication of one's ability to return to a restful state once out of danger, and of one's ability to react quickly and appropriately in the face of imminent danger.

Over a year ago, a family friend suffered a heart attack. After her emergency catheterization she was in the Cardiac ICU, hooked up to heart monitors, unable to sleep or relax in the ward. Her son was sitting in the corner of the room. He not only remarked that she had finally fallen asleep during the session, but that the monitors showed her heart rate had decreased ten points while Reiki was in progress. This ability to recover from an unnaturally high heart rate shows one's ability to return to a greater state of health through improved heart rate variability.

3. Side Effects - and Tumours - can Vanish

For those undergoing cancer treatments, the side effects of therapies like chemotherapy can be debilitating. Often there are a lot of emotions under the surface. Fear, anxiety, anger and dread can exacerbate the body's immune system and its ability to detect and eliminate toxins.

I've worked with many people who have and have had cancers. Getting Reiki before going for chemo, they sense real changes in the mind and in the body. Even getting Reiki after chemo can obliterate its side effects. It can also enhance mood, so the fear and anxiety are replaced with a more supportive feeling. And yes, I've seen more than one case where tumours were proliferating and the person was told he had a few months to live, and yet the tumours all disappeared and he went on to live for years.

The Perfect Complement

In our Level One Reiki Course, we talk about how Reiki is the perfect self-healing tool as well as the best complementary therapy to conventional medicine. It's highly portable (all you need is your own hands). It's always available when you need it. Most importantly, it is completely safe as it works from the highest of good.

If you've ever been hospitalized or have visited someone who's been in hospital, you know that it can be a bit boring and depressing. What better place to do Reiki? It may feel weird and awkward, and yes a hospital bed is very clunky to get around, but you can get creative. Interestingly, nurses and doctors love to see their patients receiving care from Reiki healers. While doctors may dismiss medical intuitives, preferring evidence-based diagnostics and conventional therapies, there are signs that the medical community is slowly coming around.

In fact many of the world's top hospitals and health care institutions now offer Reiki as a service for patients and clients. Some of these include Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, Harvard University in Boston, Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital in western Australia, University College London Hospitals NHS in London. Canadian hospitals offering Reiki as a complementary therapy include: Wellspring Westkirk House at Sunnybrook Hospital in Toronto, Mt. Sinai Hospital’s Marvelle Koffler Breast Centre in Toronto, Princess Margaret Hospital / University Health Network in Toronto, Bruce House AIDS hospice in Ottawa, Sandy Hill Community Health Centre in Ottawa, Tamara's House in Saskatoon and Wellspring with locations across Canada.

Beyond the Ward

So in the end, my first intuition (one of my mom's medications was making her sick) may have been spot-on. Following several tests, she was taken out of isolation and then released two days ago with new immunosuppressives to prevent her body from rejecting her kidney.

And even though she's out of the hospital, she's still getting Reiki everyday.
