About RZ

Hello! Let me introduce myself –


I’m Rochelle Zanini (rhymes with Panini) and I’m the face and voice of Diamond Lotus Reiki.

You’re probably here to find out a little bit about me. The first thing you should know is that I love to laugh and have a playful spirit.

But, it wasn’t always that way.

“Why are we ‘should-ing’ all over ourselves?” – Carrie Bradshaw, Sex in the City

Have you ever felt disconnected from your own life – exhausted from repeating the same old tired life lessons over and over?

Yep. There was a time when I did too.

From an outside perspective, I had a great life – my best friend and husband all rolled into one, a beautiful home in an upscale neighborhood, wonderful friends, and a good job where I was respected and well-liked. Career driven, I focused almost all of my energy towards becoming a CPA and “making a living.” I was being a “good” person doing what I thought I should do.

But I wasn’t truly alive. I had forgotten that I had a soul living inside this body. Not to mention a life purpose beyond paying my bills. I had reached my heaviest weight as I numbed my feelings with food. I felt disconnected from myself and unhappy with the betrayal of my body.

As I looked around and felt little-to-no appreciation for the abundance in my life, I realized the status quo no longer worked for me. I had reached the breaking point. It was time for a change so I went to an intuitive hypnotherapist for help. After I worked with her for a while, she said something out of the blue that completely turned my life around.

“You realize why you did this work with me, right? Because it’s your life purpose to practice Reiki.”

“Excuse me!? What’s Reiki!?”

Now, ten years later, I’m an experienced Reiki Master who incorporates crystals and sound healing during my sessions. Ha – love how life provides nudges when needed!

Imagine feeling completely relaxed, at ease and energized… being 100% present to this precious life.

Imagine allowing yourself to feel self-love, self-acceptance, joy and pleasure… without the “shoulds.”

You can do this easily by connecting with your spiritual essence in a sacred, healing environment. And, that’s where I come in.

I’m here to help you release blocks, open up to Divine Source energy and to remember what you came to planet Earth to do. I want you to be fully engaged in your life.

All with ease and grace.

Because the reality is that we are all energy beings on an embodied journey through this thing called “life.” And, by working with Reiki and other forms of subtle energy healing, we naturally experience open communication with the Divine. The lotus within our hearts blooms when we are in communion with the source of all life.

When I look back at my life before Reiki, I have such compassion for the person I was then. I’m amazed at what you can heal and manifest when you participate and co-create with your own sacred soul.
