3 Years into Reiki and still going strong!
When I first started learning what reiki was back in 2013, I had had a very unpleasant ordeal which involved me having to go to hospital. I was very unhappy with my life in general and somehow when I was discharged I found myself learning about Chakras and the crystals that correspond with the different Chakras we have in our body. I bought myself a chakra kit off ebay, it was only cheap about a fiver if I remember rightly and I placed the stones on my body where they were supposed to be and started to meditate. I had absolutely no idea what I was doing but I followed the instructions and that night I had a really bizarre dream about ants coming out of my head and running away, it was such a crazy dream, I was in the chemist and i just put my head on the counter and pressed it and all these ants came scurrying out away from me!
After this I found a lovely lady called Halina who was only round the corner for me and she practiced Reiki, I knew little about it just that I was drawn to it instantly so I booked in and I went to see her. I was a very timid uptight guarded person and didn’t really know what to expect. I didn’t want to mention what I was dealing with and had been through so I just remember being very nervous and was purposely preparing to answer any questions with one word answers. She was very friendly and didn’t question me at all and put me at ease right away.
I loved my first treatment!! I just remember being lay on the massage bed and I could see such wonderful colours, purples and pinks and greens all ebbing and flowing in my mind and I was so relaxed I felt like I was floating in the sea, when I walked home I felt really light headed but it a good way, peaceful and a bit hippyish is the only way I can describe it.
Now its 2016 and that first visit is still fresh in my memory as it was as if it was yesterday, without sounding like im blowing my own trumpet I am really pleased at how far iv come in my life since then. I am human I have ups and downs just like everyone else but I can handle the downs much better and I can now set my own boundaries where as before I was a push over, I really dont mind admitting it I was a massive push over and worried about what everyone thought of me, felt guilty and ashamed a lot of the time and let people take advantage and didnt care enough about who I was or what happened to me where as now I feel as though iv grown a back bone and I am a lot more selective about what I do and who I let into my life.
I believe Reiki has totally helped me transform my life and I know I have a lot more exciting things to come, if someone would of told me 3 years ago I would have my own website and be blogging about something I am so passionate about I would of said they were having a laugh! Never mind have my own treatment room! Crazy!! But good crazy and I absolutely love it!!
