Caledonia Resident Uses Her Energy to Care for Others

Caledonia resident Karuna Krinsky brings a unique energy to our area. Karuna is a healer by nature and follows that course in all aspects of her life. As a Reiki Master, she brings a unique service to Mount Pleasant-Sturtevant and Caledonia Patchers. Karuna is a mom, gardener and volunteer, all of which brings her great joy and fulfillment.
Reiki is a form of energy. It is a frequency known as Chi and it invigorates areas of the body which have been depleted for any number of reasons; addiction, depression, chemo symptoms, injuries and more. Reiki can assist those dealing with a multitude of ailments and maladies, but it is not a medical practice or procedure. Reiki can work in conjunction with medical treatments by providing spiritual and emotional relief and support.
Be sure to visit Mount Pleasant-Sturtevant Patch later this week to find out more about Reiki practice.
Karuna has been a Reiki practitioner since 1999. She became a Reiki Master, which allows for her to teach the practice to others, in 2002. In dealing with her own physical and emotional issues, she discovered Reiki through the suggestion of her massage therapist.
“I was so impressed that I couldn't stop using it on others and very much on myself. It started me off on a different path,” says Karuna, “Some of us carry a load of burdens – from the past and current troubles – which weigh us down. Reiki is like a breeze of fresh air. It flows through dark and stuffy corners of our minds and emotions. There is a kind of lightness felt, even physically, when we let go of our baggage.”
Karuna's healing abilities do not stop after her Reiki sessions have ended. She also volunteers for a Pleasant Prairie hospice organization.
Karuna truly enjoys where she lives because the feel of a green, rural area so close to the city provides the best of both worlds. She considers our part of Racine County "absolutely perfect," where she can garden and interact with nature right in her backyard.
“Wildflower gardens are my passion. I enjoy playing God and provide little sanctuaries for the different critters in our backyard. All of them are welcome here and protected – from butterflies and tiny native bees to river otters and majestic deer," Karuna said. "Although disappointed with their dinner choices, I am quite forgiving.”
This summer is busy for Karuna; she's taking time to recharge, is attending an 11-day spiritual retreat, and has plans to travel to Europe. She has a theory about seasons:
“Summer is always gone in a blink and we all enjoy the gifts of nature and outdoor activities. Fall and Winter are the perfect times to focus on body and soul. Summer is a good time to do serious internal work as nurturing oneself on all levels is important to remain effective and dedicated.”
