Life before finding Reiki energy healing!

Life before finding Reiki energy healing!

When I think back on my life before I was introduced to energy healing over 18+ years ago, I picture a woman juggling multiple balls in the air; a full time career, home, marriage, children, the list goes on!  I became frustrated, exhausted, and ultimately quite down on life.

I used to think if I just ran harder, faster, and for longer, I could have, be, and do anything I wanted to. It almost felt as though I was in a constant state of fight or flight.

My nervous system was overwhelmed by the hectic pace I had established for myself. Nothing seemed like it was working very well both physically and mentally.

I wasn’t happy or at peace. To be honest, I was surviving rather than thriving.

So when a friend suggested to attend a Reiki session as a way to slow down, breathe, and get myself back on track, I got myself onto a massage table and gave it a go.

The best way I can describe Reiki is that it helps reconnect us with our hearts, minds, body and soul.

Reiki is an ancient Japanese healing method based on the idea that an unseen “life force energy” flows through and around us. If this energy starts to run low, we are more likely to get sick or feel stressed, and if it’s abundant, we are more capable of health and happiness. Reiki supports deep relaxation and healing by removing internal blocks and balancing the body’s energy centres, also known as chakras. It’s a natural technique that serves as a powerful, effective way to infuse your chakras and body with Universal light energy, or pure loving energy. It complements mainstream medicine and any belief systems.

Reiki practitioners act as conduits for the Universal energy to flow through. They break up stagnant energy by using their hands to lightly and gently touch different areas of the body, releasing blocks and promoting relaxation in the process.

After receiving Reiki treatments on a regular basis, I started to feel a physical, mental, and energetic shift. Simply put: I felt reconnected to myself. I was lighter, my thoughts came more freely, and I held a deeper calm and overall wisdom. I felt ready to trade in my negative self-talk for compassion and appreciation for myself and others.

Inspired by the power of the method and eager to help others feel the peace and calm I was experiencing, I soon decided to study Reiki for myself. During my training, my teacher told me a healthy human body is like a free-flowing stream. When a stream is flowing, it’s full of fish and wildlife. But when it starts to stagnate and become blocked, fish die because there’s not enough oxygen and things are out of balance.

Today, when I’m working with a client, I think back to the place I was in before I found my way to the practice. I look for signs of blocked energy in the body, whether it is physical pain or emotional trauma. I work to go underneath people’s defense mechanisms and unconscious coping techniques to offer relief from any stress trapped and stored away in the body.

I create a sacred, safe, compassionate, nonjudgmental environment where clients don’t have to hide from their emotions – they can embrace whatever comes up and release it. We work together to release any negative energy that no longer serves them.

In turn, the client can experience more freedom in mind, body, and soil. I find it amaking to watch people transform after a session or series of sessions and no longer ignore what’s going on in their bodies or be desensitized to their pain. They are more aware of what serves them both mentally and physically.

For some, the benefits of energy healing work may seem too “magical” to be real, but from my own personal experience, just making the decision to schedule a Reiki session is the start of an incredible healing journey.
