The Maiden’s Crew
David Ball is a native of Utah and has lived in various places such Washington state, Thailand and the Philippine Islands. It was his stay in the Far East along with major life changes that lead him to graduate from being LDS and taking an interest in metaphysics and Alternative Religions.
He started out by studying Wicca and joining a men's Pagan circle called The Scared Faeries. During this time he was working in both a Pagan/Metaphysical store and a Native American trading post where he was able to develop his abilities by learning Tarot card divination, shamanism and Native American spirituality. This in turn lead to studying magic, both western and eastern, and other forms of divination such as the I Ching and runes.
In 1994, David was initiated into levels 1 and 2 of Usui Shiki Ryoho and began his study of Rei Ki and other Eastern methods of spiritual healing. In 1995 he was initiated into Usui Shiki Ryoho, level 3 by one of the founders of Jeweled Maidens, Joy Hoban. Through studying Qigong and the Reiki healing information coming out of Japan in the late 90's, he was led to Usui Reiki Ryoho, a more complete and traditional method of Reiki healing. In 2008, he received Shinpiden in Usui Reiki Rhoyo and since then has combined the two lineages in his Reiki teachings.
In 1998, David "went public" by starting to do professional Tarot readings at such places as Fertile Ground, Glyphics and the Golden Braid.
