For today’s post, I thought I would share part of my own Reiki journey, specifically how I first found Reiki or maybe that should be how Reiki found me!
Up until a few years ago, I don’t think I had even heard of Reiki and would have been very sceptical of it if I had. I have a very logical mind and like most medical people (I was a nurse) I needed things to be explainable and research based but Reiki is not really either of these things (although Quantum Physics is now providing the scientific basis).
The, about seven years ago, I found myself in a really difficult place following the death of my father. Having nursed and cared for him for about 6 years before that, I was drained in all ways and was looking for ‘something’ although I wasn’t sure what.
Even now I cannot remember exactly how I first became aware of Reiki – I guess it was just one of those times when life knows best. But, somehow, I was in the right place at the right time and became aware of a local lady who was a Reiki Master Teacher and knew I wanted to be attuned even though at that point I had never even had a Reiki session.
In one of life’s many strange coincidences, I then met the lady in question at a local Belly Dancing class! So, I asked her to attune me to level one, and she did – after making me have a treatment first – and the rest, as they say, is history. Now, here I am, six years later, a Reiki Master Teacher myself, having given up my nursing career to become a full-time Reiki practitioner and loving every minute of it.
It hasn’t been all plain sailing. Reiki is all about healing and over the last few years it has helped me to heal many things but more of that in future posts. Reiki has also helped me to look at life in a totally different way and in some bizarre way life actually makes more sense.
But I guess the biggest thing I have learnt from Reiki is that life really does know best and will, if we let it, show us the right way to even if it doesn’t always seem like it at the time.
