Thank you for tuning in and welcome to the SHE SPEAKS Podcast by The Great Canadian Woman™. My name is Sarah Swain and I am the founder of The Great Canadian Woman™, an empowered multi-media organization and inclusive community that focuses on producing 100% Canadian content to put the spotlight on the powerful and inspiring Womxn right here in Canada. We host events, we publish books, we produce a collaborative blog, we run a book club that tackles tough issues facing Canadians and you can find out about all of these things and more by visiting

On The SHE SPEAKS Podcast by The Great Canadian Woman, you can expect to learn something new, from someone new with each new episode. Producing 3 fresh episodes per week every Monday, Tuesday & Wednesday, you’ll listen to Womxn cover anything and everything from business to the environment to social justice to parenting to travel and just about everything in between. There is something here for everyone. The purpose here is for you to connect to, learn from and grow alongside other incredible Canadian Womxn - who have something to say. 

We as The Great Canadian Woman brand and platform no longer identify as being a like-minded community of Womxn because truthfully, we believe that by surrounding ourselves with people who think the same way as us only perpetuates the palpable divisiveness across our country, and globally at that. Instead, we are an open-minded community and we hope that by being here, you feel inspired to learn something new that challenges your existing beliefs. We hope that you connect with someone new that maybe you wouldn’t have otherwise connected with or had the opportunity to connect with. And we hope that by being here, it sparks growth in your own personal or professional journey. 

Most of our contributors are the everyday Womxn. Not celebrities. Not big influencers. Not famous. Womxn. I won’t even say JUST Womxn, because being a Womxn is enough. These are Womxn with something to say, and that is enough. More than enough.

Gone  are the days She remains humble and keep her gifts, her wisdom and her power to herself. 

Here, she takes the mic. 

Here, she owns her power. 

Here, She SPEAKS.

Lindsay Mae Anderson is the sole owner of The Reiki Witch in Ontario, Canada, where she helps womxn awaken the magic within. She is a Holy Fire III Reiki Master Teacher and Spiritual Development Mentor. Lindsay has a bachelor’s degree with honours in Social Work and a Social Service Worker diploma, which lends to her ability to hold safe, ethical and sacred space for her clients. After graduating in 2015, Lindsay worked in the field of Mental Health for several years before suffering from vicarious trauma and burnout. With the beautiful healing energy of Reiki, Lindsay experienced a spiritual awakening as a result of her pain. Reiki has now become her entire way of life. Since she has began embracing her empathic and intuitive abilities, Lindsay has married her soulmate, became a published author, started a very successful spiritual business, and continues to cultivate and inspire a large community of soul-searchers both online and in-person.


In today’s episode, Lindsay shares:


  • Her story of how she stumbled across reiki, and how it became a very important part of her life. 
  • An explanation about what Holy Fire III Reiki is, the 3 concepts that are introduced during holy fire III reiki treatments, and the different ways it can be experienced.
  • How Reiki can support the reveal of your authentic self. The passionate, purposeful and healthy version of themselves.

Lindsay shares that reiki truly is a way of life and can help so many people peel back the layers of the culturally created wounds and dormant parts of themselves to reveal their true and authentic self.  

Our world is changing and we can choose to ride the wave, or we can choose to push against it! We can push against it by healing those unhealed parts of us that cause us to suppress our emotions and feelings.
