Why Mintaka?

I've always been fascinated by the stars. So I knew that, located in the Orion Constellation, Mintaka is one of three stars that makes up Orion's Belt: Alnitak, Alnilam and Mintaka. Easily visible to the naked eye, Mintaka is often referred to as the third of ‘Three Sisters’.


Naturally, as the third of three sisters myself, I was always going to be drawn to Mintaka when it came to thinking up a name for my practice. But then it got even more interesting…

Orion's Belt

While mainstream history and science doesn’t recognize the existence of so-called Mintakans having once inhabited Mintaka, according to mystical circles Mintaka was a utopian water world, a paradise filled with love and light.


Now, while the Trent & Mersey canal can hardly be described as a utopian water world, after living next to this lovely body of water for nearly 30 years I like to see our little corner of Cheshire as my own mini Mintaka.


What’s more, Mintakans were said to be full of love and compassion, with a positive outlook on life, committed to supporting, healing and uplifting everyone around them – and as that pretty much sums up my entire outlook on life, too, it sort of felt inevitable that Mintaka Reiki in Sandbach was meant to be.
