Welcome to, Be the Light podcast. This podcast is about building a positive momentum of change and healing by shining the light on teachers and wisdom so that we can be inspired to be the Light in our own life.

Many people are looking for ways to be happier and have more peace. We are all meant to find our purpose and shine our light into the world. We are being called to bring healing, light, and the goodness that is in all of us deeper into our lives. Our world needs us, and it is time to listen. 

Hosted by Maria Kammerer, Professional Reiki Teacher/ Practitioner with over 16 years of experience in supporting people in healing. We will be sharing wisdom, teachings, meditations, happiness life hacks and wonderful moments with you. This is an invitation to find different teachers or practices that may resonate with you to help you to grow and expand your inner light.

We need positive things to focus on. It helps remind us of the good that is in the world and keeps us on a momentum of happiness.

This introduction into the podcast series: Be the light by your host Maria Kammerer. She extends an invitation to listen deeply. To focus on your peace that is always present in you, ending with a guided meditation.

Reiki has been that way of healing for me. Reiki, translated means spiritual energy, it is a system that helps us to let go of anger and worry and uncovers our peace and wholeness. In my direct experience the system of Reiki is a path of transformation – it opens us up to the knowing that in each of us is: true-self, wisdom, light, compassion, and healing. Reiki allows us to heal ourselves, and through each of us, we can be part of healing the world. 

There has been a lot of expansion on this journey. Let us continue to Be the Light for others; and listen to the teachings of current  spiritual leaders and practitioners; expanding and cultivating the power of Healing, Light, and Peace that is our true nature.
