AngelPainterGrl's Shop Announcement


My name is Ruby and I am a watercolor artist, Reiki Master, and a Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselor. I am contacting you because of your pivotal role as a resource of spiritual wellness!

Several years ago, during a deeply intense period of spiritual growth . . . red wine and music became my allies, the perfect tools in the creation of my first body of artistic work . . . angels and goddesses flowed from my paintbrush! In fact, these tools gave me permission to become the artist I always wanted to be and I rejoiced in the experience of being my truest self! My spiritual journey then led me to the Reiki community where I became a Certified Reiki Practitioner; creativity, spirituality and love my highest values.
But over time, ever so slowly, my drinking gradually increased, my spirit became diluted, and bit-by-bit I became aware that . . . the creative voice that I cherished so much was now just a whisper . . . drowned out by increasing amounts of alcohol and confusion: What happened? How could a Healer become so sick? How could a light worker such as me be unable to stop? Was I bad? Was I stupid or weak? I was consumed by fear, anxiety, self doubt and a tsunami of shame. I felt hopeless, anguished, grief-stricken and so scared. I needed help. But as I reached out I discovered shockingly little support of my unique and hard-won spiritual values. Where does the addicted healer go for appropriate care? Where does the addicted light-worker turn for help?

I vowed to find answers, to recover, and to share my discoveries with my spiritual peers asking these same questions.

Do you know what to do when someone important to you struggles with addiction? Do you know what to say when someone precious drinks too much, or too often? Do you know that drug and alcohol abuse results in chemical brain injury and that anyone, ANYONE, can become addicted?

Did you know that untreated addiction is fatal?

I have now been in long term recovery from the disease of alcoholism for almost five years. In that period of time I have become a Reiki Master and a Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselor; licensed in the State of Oregon, License # 14-11-14.
I am here to share with you that there IS somewhere the addicted healer can go for help in battling their disease . . . there is somewhere the lightworker can turn for value-based information and relevant care; to Ruby’s Art, Reiki & Recovery.

My services include:

Multi-Dimensional Assessment
Individual Value-Based Treatment Planning
Group/Peer counseling sessions
Reiki Treatments
Guided Meditations
Crystal Therapies
Sound Therapy
Reiki Attunements and Instruction to Reiki I and Reiki II
I also offer addiction Consultation/Education Services for Community Leaders and Spiritual Elders, such as you, in order to share the truth about what addiction TRULY IS, what it is NOT, and what you can do to help.

Please do not hesitate to contact me for more information or to refer someone for an evaluation.

Blessings and Light to you,
