As if a difficult childhood was not enough, life took me through various twists and spins; single motherhood, an ugly divorce, bad lifestyle choices, toxic relationships, painful loss: I had seen a lot: I had been through a lot. Some of it by my own actions: Some of it caused by the actions of others. Some of it just happened to be the way the wind blew. Either way, something had to change. Life was an endless storm and I got swept by one wave or the other.
Pursuing education seemed an obvious way up. Getting my college degree was always a dream of mine, but for one reason or another pursuing it was pushed off for another time. Then, one day, I just did it, I just went down to the school and signed up. At a time of complete chaos, this seemed like a saner way out. However, graduation seemed to be miles away, and though the true me was beginning to awaken, parts of me were still missing in action.
By nature, I am a born caregiver and a healer but at the time I didn’t have the physical capacity to do it to the level it was needed, because I was bruised myself.
I realized that in order to help others, first I had to help myself.
Reiki – A Big Step Towards Healing
I have always been very intuitive and healing was embedded in my soul. Reiki uses energy to heal. And, as I touched on in an earlier post: everything is made of energy, different energy fields surround us and also everything around us. When we are at ill-ease, we are filled with a different type of energy. Diffusing negative energy and enabling pure energy to flow through till there is a sense of balance and the person is their wholesome best again – and that’s only one aspect of what reiki healing can do. WOW! all this can be very overwhelming for an intuitively perceptive person. After some self-reflection, I began to study Reiki, the healing touch.
Little did I know at the time, that this study would change my life and assist me with all my endeavors. It was natural and genuine. I went through levels 1 and 2 and then finally achieved my certification as a Reiki Master. I was tuned-in to the universal energy and I started living my fullest life of wellness. I achieved a sense of calm and self-preservation which enabled me to do what I could imagine. I was synchronized with the Divine force.
While I was passing through the phases of becoming a Reiki Master, and even during my Reiki attunement, I was slightly skeptical. My brain had a way of over-analyzing things. And… well… healing, positive energy, energy fields, all these things are not easy to observe or quantify.
As much as my intuition and numinous abilities would prove themselves throughout my entire life… I continuously questioned them… questioned me, because this was not really something tangible or measurable. Though my heart was completely on-board with this, and it had always been a credible source, a life of denying to give a voice to my true capabilities mixed with self-doubt made my mind’s “logic” louder and gave it an automatic distrust response.
My First AHA! Moment
I vividly remember my first “oh my GOSH! This really works!” We had a cat named Groucho. He had an eye infection for a couple of weeks. It had gotten to the point of being very serious. I knew I had to schedule an appointment at the vet for him, but I was financially broke. It was nasty and swollen. It was so bad that we thought they would have to take his eye out. I had just received my Reiki Master Certification. We desperately wanted Groucho safe and I decided to give him a Reiki treatment. After one Reiki session, his eye cleared up in a matter of hours and the infection NEVER came back. I was stunned by the effectiveness Reiki had on my cat (by the way I learned animals are incredibly receptive to Reiki). The children and I were ecstatic. It was a miracle!
I cannot say that every Reiki session works out exactly as it did with Groucho the cat. Like I mentioned, animals are immensely receptive to Reiki or any energy healing therapy. I can confidently say that every client that has come in to see me for energy work has felt immediate results of some sort. However, for my journey, this was exactly what I needed to boost my confidence as a Reiki Practitioner. This confidence, along with the changes that took place in my own life was the spark that propelled me towards energy work and Alternative Medicine as a profession. This also further fired a passion to obtain knowledge of many methods of energy work, alternative medicine, and natural healing.
