My journey with Reiki began ten years ago. I felt completely energised after my first treatment, and within a few days my life started unravelling as limiting patterns started coming to the fore, forcing me to face them and grow into a better life.
I started going for treatments every six weeks. Reiki was clearing energy patterns and assisting my growth in consciousness and alignment. Every treatment dealt with a different aspect of my life.
After having my third child, I left my accounting job and completed my level three Reiki master teacher training. I kept one foot in the corporate world, doing the books for clients whilst raising my kids and practising Reiki from home. This balance helped me to remain in touch with the realities faced by my Reiki clients working office jobs in our fast-paced world.
For many years, I could not describe how or what Reiki heals. While there are many benefits detailed in the handbooks and online, what resonated most with me is how the modality helps to clear old energy, allowing one to grow in awareness and consciousness and align with flow.
With growth in awareness, we become aware of old patterns. We consciously start changing our energy patterns - even the programs that run from the subconscious. We feel balanced and strong enough to make positive changes.
Reiki is a beautiful, gentle healer. My kids love that I am attuned to Reiki, especially my teenage son. When he finds it difficult to sleep after a mentally hard day at school he asks for a little treatment. No matter where in the world I find myself, I can offer some sort of first aid for any discomfort, using my hands and this powerful gift.
I love giving Reiki treatments, and my future goal is to teach and attune more practitioners. I am especially interested in teaching moms so that they can use the tool to help their kids on a regular basis.
