It was 2006 and I found myself in a Reiki Level 1 Certification program at my yoga studio. I only attended the program because I was in a yoga teacher training program at the same studio and I thought I might as well take the Reiki training because it kind of goes along with yoga. I didn’t put much thought into what I was doing and I had no expectations.
I showed up for class and there were eight of us together in a room. The teacher explained what Reiki was, gave us the history and told us what we might experience after this thing called “attunement”. I listened but it was going over my head.
Right before it was time to set up to do this thing called “attunement” this rush of fear came over me. Then the teacher started her process and we were all sitting there with eyes closed in our special space and I started to feel light and relaxed. I got beautiful images in my head and everything felt so peaceful. I started to cry with happiness. Everything was different from that point on.
I did go through a healing process and it was challenging at times. I continued to get private Reiki sessions with local practitioners and took good care of myself. I allowed those who cared about me to support me.
My body felt light, relaxed and even more flexible. The heaviness and tightness went away. I felt happier and enjoyed healthier foods without even trying to be healthy. I had better interactions with other people. Most
importantly my anxiety disappeared. I became clear about what I wanted to do in life and moved forward.
I’m now a Wellness Coach, Reiki Master Teacher, Certified Yoga Instructor, Laughter Yoga Leader and I do this full time.
I’ve done thousands of Reiki Sessions on clients and here’s what some of them had to say about their experience.
“I felt wonderful, peaceful, relaxed and light. So light! I feel like I lost 20lbs. It’s so relaxing” – L.R – New Jersey
“It helps me get internally organized” – N.T. – Quincy, MA
“I had great sleep after the session and was also very clear in my head for the whole week. Felt fantastic
after the session. I definitely see myself having more sessions” - A.F. - Ireland
I encourage you to find a healing modality that works for you. There are many wonderful practitioners and healers. It’s just a matter of finding the right one for you.
