About Sunny Swearsky, Sexual Abuse Survivor, Reiki Master, PTSD Therapy Counselor

“By age 13, I was drinking, smoking pot and angel dust.  By 15, I was snorting cocaine, flying high on psychedelics and having sexual encounters with older men.”



I was born on a cold wintery day in New York City in 1963. Between ages 3 and 11 years old, I was sexually abused by my uncle. The memories are very fragmented, but I do recall myself at different ages and finding myself in various places. I repressed the memory deep into my unconscious mind until I was 31 years old. This is a typical response to trauma called repressed memories.

Throughout elementary school, I was a straight-A student, was valedictorian of my graduating class, and wanted to be a lawyer. I was also the perfect daughter. It was my first addiction-the perfectionist addiction, in hindsight, due to the deep guilt and shame that I harbored.

By age 17, along with everything else, I was bulimic.  It wasn’t pretty. I was severely depressed, full of anxiety and had very low self-esteem. I didn’t have the money or the motivation to get help. I tried going to psychiatrists but stopped because I am very sensitive to medications and couldn’t deal with the side effects.  The therapists I saw didn’t seem to know what to do with me. I was very rebellious and confrontational.

About Reiki Mater and Certified Sexual Assault Counselor Sunny SwearskyThis went on until I was 30 years old. I decided it was time to clean up my life because the drinking and drugs that I did to self-medicate just didn’t do it anymore. I decided to leave New York and move to Arizona. Just before I left, I found a book on Reiki in a local bookstore. It really fascinated me so I found a Reiki healer and went for a session. Within a month, I became a Reiki practitioner to heal myself. That was in 1993; my healing journey had begun.

One day while meditating and giving myself Reiki, I had a devastating recognition that I was sexually abused. It all came flooding through me. I cried for days…the deep ugly cry. For a long time, I had my doubts, because the memories were very scattered and not coherent (very typical of trauma). On top of that, this was a man that I had loved and had so much fun with. I just couldn’t imagine that he would have sexually assaulted me. However, along with the devastation that I felt that day, I also felt much relief. It all began to make so much sense. The addictions, anxiety, guilt, risky relationships, and low self-esteem are all very typical symptoms of sexual assault.

SOON An awareness WAS SPARKED…

A spiritual awakening began...I am a sexual trauma survivor

An Expansion Began

The natural, expanded states of love, light, peace, happiness, and abundance began to show up in my life first in small ways, then more pronounced. I became a dedicated meditator, developed my intuition, began to love my inner child, and learned to trust. As more blocks fell away, my energetic vibration increased, and the limiting beliefs that held me back for so long dissolved. Along with the energy shifts from regular Reiki sessions, my life shifted dramatically. I regained my health, and the addictions and depression faded away. My relationships became more loving as I embraced self-love. I met my husband, got married, and started a family. Twenty-six years later, I continue to experience true and lasting happiness with my beautiful family and carry a deep unconditional love for all. My health is exceptional, and I live a life of joyful prosperity.

I’ve learned from many teachers, receive attunements and activations, meditate and continue to follow a natural progression of energetic ascension as a powerful channel of Divine Light, Love, and Grace.

“…a spiritual awakening was sparked, and a regular spiritual practice began.  The natural enlightened states of love, light, peace, happiness and abundance began to show up in my life first in small ways, then more pronounced. ”

Trauma can be a gateway to spiritual awakening and spiritual healing

I am a sexual assault crisis counselor and continue to advocate, serving hundreds of people…survivors of childhood sexual assault, incest, older adults who experienced sexual abuse, domestic and intimate partner violence, military sexual assault, campus sexual assault, sexual harassment at work, date rape, friend rape, stranger rape and supporting family of survivors. I’ve learned so much about resilience, strength, and power in the eyes of these beautiful women and men.

There was a piece missing in my work at the sexual abuse crisis center where I worked…a piece that I feel is very important to lasting trauma healing. We are energy beings having a physical experience. I had an expansion of consciousness that was the core of my healing from sexual abuse. It is an honor to now continue this work on my own as a Reiki Master and wisdom coach and to share with you all that I’ve learned. The Reiki and energy medicine that I provide is intuitive, channeled from the most loving place and together with the wisdom coaching, greatly…many times miraculously assists in permanently removing blocks to true happiness.
