Did I mention I’m a Reiki Master? I know right…not the sort of thing you’d expect for one so obsessed with shoes and other forms of shallow consumerism! But here I am, using this blissful form of relaxing therapy as treatments for those looking to heal and relax.
Bare with as I attempt to explain as best I can. Using emotional and physical symbols given to me by my Reiki Master, I tap into our Universal Energy, focusing on healing emotionally and physically using positive intention – there…I know, it probably seems a little strange to some, but believe me, lying in a deep, blissful state with beautiful sounds and scents surrounding you, it’s hard not to enjoy, and easy to accept.
I have a gorgeous little client at the moment, Lilly, who has been such a star and seems to be improving – she is suffering with a knee problem (floating bone), and has had to use crutches for school, (until recently thankfully), this is a huge shame, as she’s such a talented and incredible gymnast. She’s only 11 and her mum wants to avoid surgery where possible. I’m not saying Reiki is the answer, but it’s definitely a focus for her healing journey – she meditates on her knee and visualises it getting better, at the same time she completely relaxes into a blissful state, which is something I’ve noticed happen to most I practise on.
The other thing I find are the visions, (no don’t go…) – again, this may seem a little unusual, but I’ll sometimes witness snapshots of symbols, animals or colours – this is when the magic comes through, and I know something is definitely happening. I once felt an electric shock in my hand as I placed it over another client’s head – it was only afterwards I realised this was probably because she’d had a recent epileptic seizure.
Funnily enough, we all have the ability to do this, it’s just some of us are a bit more open to the experience than others, which is fine – I love to offer Reiki and gain as much out of it as the receiver, it’s a pure form of bliss and well worth trying, especially to rid some of our Winter blues.
