Where do you start with at to tell about such an awesome person? I been writing things all week trying to figure out the correct words! Trying to keep it short! It’s so much to share, so many words to describe my experience, so many different ways that having Anna right by side the ending of my pregnancy that made it a GREAT EXPERIENCE. ANNA your a sweet, caring, loving, kind hearted person. You definitely made me feel safe, loved, comfortable, and excited. All of my wishes was granted with this delivery and I can’t help but to think it went this because of you being right there with me. From the first day you just reaching out to text me to check on me when I forgot to text you myself I felt that connection. I’m definitely a momma girl and for my mom to have to work the day I delivered and not have to feel like she needed to call out because she left me in good hands with you made me feel awesome. This experience having a doula, letting the doctors know exactly what I wanted done and actually following through with it made my night. I would not change anything about my 2nd birth with my daughter. You made me feel strong, you kept me relaxed, you were there to support me through my decision even when I had doubts. I thank you so much I would recommend you to assist anyone I will definitely keep in touch as Muffin grows because this is a story to be shared with her as she gets older. I will never forget the ARIES who helped me in a life changing moment. I thank you and love you YOU ROCK
Spring/summer 2015 I was pregnant with my third and final baby. I was in NO way, ready to deal with all of what that would mean for my family. Enter: Ana Temple Rodney, with car seat-laden Aiden in tow. When I opened the door to greet her, she had a great big smile and it was followed by an even bigger hug. Genuinely warm and comforting, she asked me right away how I was feeling and if I, in my own home, had a seating preference for my own comfort!!! From that moment, I knew I was in good hands; as she took me to and came in with me to two Obgyn appointments. Due to preeclampsia, I had to deliver two weeks early and Ana was right by my side. During my contractions, she had a container of soothing, aromatic salt for me to smell that kept me calm, relaxed and clear-headed. To this day, it is one of my favorite memories during labor & delivery. When I was sleeping, she was keeping the doctors and nurses abreast of my wishes and any changes I was experiencing. At one point, she suggested to my nurses that I use a yoga ball to help me with comfort and dilation. She even went the extra step and called my other family members to update them about everything. She actually held my hand and said to me, "Come on, you got this!!! You can do it!!! You are strong, you are powerful and you are amazing!!! This baby chose you!!!" Fast forward three years and she is as close to me as my own sisters and my whole family adores her. She GENUINELY loves what she does!!!
Thank you for sharing your Reiki practice with me. I was truly blessed by the experience. I have a little bit of knowledge of Reiki and had always wanted to have a Reiki session but because of my Christian background always believed that it was something strange and a practice that Christians should not participate in. However, when I stepped into your studio I knew I had chosen the right person in the right place to receive Reiki. You have a kindness and a gentle way that made me feel very comfortable and not hesitant as I entered into the session. After the session what you shared with me were things that I have not shared with anyone but I have been experiencing for a while now. Thank you for listening and sharing the wisdom with me that you heard. This was an amazing experience for me it definitely helped me clarify some things and is helping me to be more mindful about next steps that I need to take thank you.
I had never tried Reiki before, so this was my first experience. The only thing I knew about Reiki is what I've heard from others and doing a little online research. I am at a time in my life where I am manifesting just about everything I desire and strive for, and yet I consistently found myself with anxiety, a loss for words, and a sadness in my heart (which I did not necessarily acknowledge before my session with Ana). Having worked with Ana and taking her yoga classes, I was aware of her spiritual energy and connection to healing others. When I found out that she is a Reiki Master, I instantly knew I needed to schedule a session with her! We all need healing. Unsure of what to exactly expect, from the moment I sat down and spoke with Ana about the session, I felt like I was 100% at the right place where I needed to be in that moment. Her voice, her energy and her way of explanation and relating to me helped me to feel so relaxed before starting. After my session I was left feeling at ease yet awake and aware of what I needed to bring forward now. Ana's insight about my personality, job situation and the colors I saw during my session shed light on my strengths as a person, and the challenges I face to help bring guidance forward to heal myself. I went home and slept for longer than I usually do. When I woke, I felt energized, refreshed and open to all the possibilities in store. Like a brand new person. When my boyfriend asked me how I felt after, I simply said "like I can do anything." Truly a life changing experience. Forever grateful.
