Reiki – My Healing Journey
I’ve always wanted to change the world – I know that sounds huge, but hear me out. I believe that every single one of us is changing the world every single day; good or bad, big or small, we are changing it. For me that change starts with the people I interact with. If I can help change and help people around me to heal, I’m know there will be a ripple effect. Some of you may think I’m too idealistic and that’s okay. I agree with you – it’s a strength of mine.
My original platform for changing the world was teaching. What better way to make a difference than in the lives of children? I figured if I could help impact and teach approx. 20-30 children to be compassionate, kind and loving (oh yes, and to do math, read and all that other school stuff) per year, over the course of time that would be a lot of lives changed. Recently, however, I see that my platform for changing the world is evolving. Changing the lives of children is still ONE way I plan to help change this world, but it’s getting bigger.
On July 11, 2015, my world shifted and I became a mother of a little boy who has rocked my world in the very best, and some of the most challenging ways I’ve ever known. Before I go any further I should tell you that anxiety and sleep issues have plagued me most of my life. Let me tell you, pregnancy and being a new momma did not help either of these! About three months after my son was born (and my anxiety was at an all-time high) a friend of mine introduced me to reiki. I knew right away that this was something I needed in my life in a very big way. Reiki has helped me get in touch with who I am again. It helped me find my centre, tap into serenity in the face of chaos, and have clarity; not to mention sleeping better, being less naggy with my hubby, and just being an all round happier person. I decided to get my certification because I knew this was an incredible tool that would help me become the best possible version of myself and I could share the benefits of doing reiki on my hubby and son (Yes! You can do reiki on children!). Little did I know it would expand beyond just helping my family!
To be able to literally take the negative energy out and put positive healing energy in sounds simple (and a little crazy), but I have not had a single person on my massage table who has not felt the powerful effects (skeptics included) and healing of reiki.
And that brings us to now…
It is through reiki, meditation and self reflection that I’ve come to know my true purpose in changing this world. It is to help as many people as I can reach inner peace, find healing and be the very best person they can be.
I wish you all the best on your healing journey.
