Being sensitive to the energies, emotions and thoughts of the people and environment you are in can leave you feeling drained, exhausted and overwhelmed. These traits often feel more like a burden than a gift.
Many years ago I felt very overwhelmed by my life, felt out of control and burdened by what should have made me joyful.
Reiki helped me. To be honest the reason I took my first Reiki course was simply to get out of my house. It represented 8 hours of no pressure, burdens or responsibilities and that is what I needed so badly.
Once I started working with the Reiki energy I knew I was on to something. I started to feel calmer inside, felt stronger and more in control. I had a tool that seemed to be doing something positive, although I didn’t really understand what it was doing.
So I took level 2. Again, with honesty I will say the idea of another 8 hours of no pressure, burdens or responsibilities was highly enticing, but this time my curiosity was hooked. I knew there was more to this, I knew I had something important at my fingertips and I knew it was tangible.
After Level 2 I really noticed the shift in who I was and in my environment. I had always been sensitive, intuitive and energetically aware, but in all the courses I had ever taken on spirituality and personal development (and there were alot!) none had felt so life changing, so empowering and so real.
Eventually my walk with Reiki developed from a tool I used to being a way of life. I went on to take my Master/Teacher and then my Karuna Master/Teachers. I embraced the Holy Fire energies when they were added. I welcomed students along the way, slowly my Reiki tool turned into a Reiki life.
Eventually I was invited to join the Oasis Rejuvenation Spa & Retreat Team where I participated in wellness programs with a variety of practitioners from different modalities and with a variety of clients from moderate to very serious health issues both physically and mentally. I also continued to teach and started a monthly Reiki Share group that has been a stable resource to my students & the public for five years.
This is a life I have been so blessed to live! Thank you for reading my story and I encourage you to embrace Reiki in your life too.
