Nina B. Johnson




Nina Johnson is a registered Holy Fire II Karuna® Reiki Master who is currently based in beautiful Boulder, Colorado, USA. Self-empowerment is the essence of her work, and she believes in the individual’s innate ability to heal the self through Reiki and other mind, body, spirit practices. She teaches Reiki classes in Wyoming, Colorado and Montana- and as an avid traveler, aims to teach and share the gift of Reiki all over the world. 

In her experience, the Reiki path has been the gateway to transforming her pain into her power, and this practice has proved over and over again that personal healing truly has no limits and no timeline. 

Nina chooses to see the gifts and offerings in every person she works with and calls forth their soul to shine from a place of assertive truth. With compassionate action and detachment from limiting beliefs, Nina believes we may all step into our highest potential to serve ourselves and the planet in ways beyond our wildest dreams.

Beyond her private practice, Nina is dedicated to sharing Reiki by organizing Community Reiki Shares, facilitating Holy Fire Reiki workshops, and establishing an active online presence via social media and her youtube channel.

Nina brings the Holy Fire Reiki experience to conscious events & music festivals along with Nicole Fagan of Third Heaven Holistic Healing. Together, they curate the Holy Fire Healing Portal- a healing oasis and Live Healing Artistry installation that displays what Reiki looks like to onlookers and festival goers. With the music and energy of the dance floor as their muse, they create an experience with Holy Fire that is unique in its own right.  


empower thyself

Empower Thyself is a personal & collective vision in which we all feel safe and empowered to be who we are, to shine in our truth, and accomplish our Divine Life Purpose on Earth through compassionate action and the celebration of life. 

It is safe for me to be powerful. It is safe for you to be powerful. 

Self-empowerment isn't a one-size-fits-all concept or lifestyle. It's personal, it's subjective and it's diverse. Empower Thyself embraces individuals from all walks of life who are ready to take back their power, take responsibility, and act compassionately to improve their lives and make a positive impact in this world.

True power and leadership isn't about aggression or taking advantage of others. It's about owning and sharing your truth in a conscious manner known as assertiveness. It's about respecting the free-will choice of others, maintaining healthy boundaries and working on yourself- embracing your gifts and your passions...all while taking no shit. 

A waterfall doesn't apologize for it's raging, gushing waters. A herd of wild horses doesn't hold back from the fullness of their form, speed, or prowess. 

It is time for us to remember who we are and make our presence known in the loudest and quietest of ways- to establish our Divine Presence on Earth and create the world we all truly deserve from a place of Love, which has no limits. She's been waiting for us to awaken.   

Know Thyself. Heal Thyself. Empower Thyself. 

Rinse & Repeat.
