Auri'An Lay is the Founder of Ki'An Healing. Auri'An is originally from England and moved to Australia in 1991 with her family. Prior to moving she worked in the fitness industry, running her own company; writing for newspapers and magazines; touring and lecturing around the north of England; was involved with 3 international fitness conventions and a whole lot of fund-raising activities. Auri'An was one of the first people in the UK to hold a recognised qualification in the fitness field and was considered an Olympic-level athlete; a Gold Class athletic coach, fitness trainer for a rugby league team and more. Auri'An’s specialist subject though was in the field of fitness when ageing.
After moving to Australia, Auri'An started working for a gym in Brisbane which eventually became the flag-ship of Australia’s largest chain of non-franchised gyms. Working up from teaching classes, through sales, gym management and eventually to Business Services Manager for the chain, she was directly involved in the smooth running of the business dealing with over 80,000 members and 1,200 staff through assisting setting up and managing the world’s first call centre for a chain of gyms; a debt collection agency; statistical analysis and more.
In 1998 Auri'An’s husband passed away and Auri'An also developed health issues, being diagnosed as having Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, IBS, Hypothyroidism and more. Her health deteriorated very rapidly to the point where she was told that she needed to organise a carer and that her future would be in a wheelchair. This wasn’t an option for Auri'An and over the following 15 years she fought back. For the last 10 years Auri'An and her (now ex-) husband Malcolm have worked 24/7 running 3 holiday resorts. She eventually took up belly-dancing and very soon started to teach again. Whilst Auri'An will never be the athlete she was, she holds much gratitude for the strength and perseverance that has allowed her to become reasonably active again.
It was Auri'An’s belly dancing that ultimately lead her to become spiritually awake. It was an event that was sudden, unexpected and probably the most painful thing she has ever experienced.
Since that time, Auri'An has been fast-tracking her spiritual growth. She has learned many lessons from Spirit, the hardest of them through experiencing a break down and entering her Dark Night of the Soul in 2014. It took almost 5 years to fully emerge from that time and has become one of the trigger events that resulted in Auri'An starting her journey to help other people who have found themselves in similar situations.
Auri'An is a First Wave Blue Ray Indigo and through finding this Soul Family she has, for the first time found an acceptance and deep understanding of everything that has made her feel “different” all her life. She is an Empath, is Clairsentient and a Healing Facilitator. She has a deep need to help people to find their feet on their first steps of their spiritual growth, through that tricky time when so much can be fearful and strange. She has a wealth of experience and a desire to use that experience to show people that they are not alone, someone understands and can show you how to look for the Spirit-sent lessons in almost every hardship.
Auri'An holds a Diploma in Meditation Therapy and Holistic Counsellng. She is a Healer working in the modalities of Holistic Counselling, Access Consciousness® Bars, Reiki, EFT/TFT Tapping, Brain/Body Medicine and other forms of Energy Medicine. She explains that she is simply a channel for Source Energy and that each person is their own healer. She facilitates the energy healing of both humans and animals through the use of her Sámi Shamanic Medicine Drum and Prayer Stick, through Tibetan singing bowl, Crystals, re-aligning Chakras and bringing in the Universal Energy needed for you to facilitate your own healing. Stress is a major problem in our society causing problems such as depression, anxiety and many physical illnesses and Auri'An has had more than her fair share of stress and anxiety, including a couple of breakdowns, PTSD and grief. She has recovered from all of these without the aid of medication and would like to help you to find your way back to a calm, centered place where your body can relax and start to do what it does best - heal.
Auri'An is absolutely fascinated that Science is starting to catch up with what Shamans have known for millennia and is just stepping out (very tentatively just yet) into exploring Energy Medicine through the eyes of Quantum Physics. Technology is a great spiritual tool and easily facilitates remote healing Energy - and yes, the scientists HAVE worked out how that happens!! LOL.
