My name is Csilla Toth and I am a Tàltos in my Hungarian tradition, Usui/Tibetan Reiki Master Teacher and Energy Work Practitioner.
As a child, I heard the call to healing. In my heart, I explored the possibility of becoming a doctor but that didn’t sound right. Next, I thought about becoming a massage therapist or a dentist but those didn’t resonate with me either. I loved pretending to be a teacher, and dreamed of being a lawyer helping those who couldn’t advocate for themselves. But I knew deep in my heart that those were not my calling.
My real journey started with the war in Yugoslavia. The life and the country that I knew were destroyed and with them some of my dreams, too. Yet that time brought me back to my path, to the exploration of energy and energy medicine.
I started studying energy medicine in the late 1990’s with Dr. Ljubisa Stojanovic and remained his student until I came to the USA in 2004. Here I found the freedom to pursue my love for energy medicine and began studying Reiki with the Usui/Tibetan Reiki Master Teacher Colleen Benelli. With that first attunement, I knew I had found my home, my passion and my purpose.
Reiki is a powerful healing force; yet I felt the need to deepen my knowledge and understanding of energy so I took many different classes that explored energy work techniques, sound healing, herbalism, and more. The biggest impact was my own healing journey, and reconnecting with my Hungarian lineage and teachings.
The journey continues. I seek opportunities to learn and grow every day so that the healings we bring in together become more powerful and impactful.
I Was Created
I thought that life
Suffering and the civil war
Made me strong
But now I know that I was
To be the pillar that holds you up
That crumbles quietly into the void
To be reborn again with
I was created to hold your heart
When it has a hard time to beat
To fill it up with the strength of my
That I was created with
I was created by the light of the stars
To hold your hand when you are in
I was created to see you through the
Rough patch on your
I was created to
I was created to be strong
I was created to hold
I was created to love
I was created for this world
