Really Reiki

 

What a great closeup for you all to enjoy this evening, right?

Per the most recent post on my Instagram page I wanted to share a little bit about my recent reconnection with a form of energy healing called Reiki.

Here is the fun part.

I am not going to Google this for you right now. I am not going to research a bunch of definitions and put together some poised presentation of words that makes it look like I have studied Reiki by exact definition for a long time.

Because I haven’t.

I became Level 1 certified in May of 2015. I took what I learned, and spent the next two years diving deep into self-healing work. I have only recently in the past six months really connected with what Reiki means to me on a level that I am now able to share it with others, in a personalized, impacting, and continuously evolving, intuitive way.

This is the perspective from which I will be sharing.

What Reiki means to me:

~ It means that I help people take a conscious rest. The mind gets to chill out, as well as the body, while still being awake.

It is comparable to that yummy feeling right before you actually fall asleep.

~I help people “feel lighter,” and have been told this repeatedly.

What lighter means to every person, differs for every person.

~I help people feel more deserving. Deserving of a hearty self-care session, balance, and the opportunity to explore unaddressed emotional bruising.

~It means that any person from any walk of life can benefit from Reiki, as helping humans is simply about that.

Helping. Humans.

~It also means, that I must honor the heavily involved self-care it takes for me to do this.

Which to be honest, can be the toughest part. For me to stay consistent with, and for others to fully understand.

~ It is totally worth it.

Lastly, and so beautifully put by one of my clients as she put her hand to her heart after a session-she shared what Reiki meant to her.

And what will always sum it up for what is Reiki really means to me:
It is like a hug for my soul.

Lemon Self-Care

When life gives you lemons

it Sucks,

And that is Okay.

Sometimes there is a lesson,

and sometimes things just happen.

It doesn’t always have to make sense, love.

It’s okay not to search for the why.

And it’s okay to sit with the why me for a bit.

It is okay to be pissed off, and sad.

to Feel It.

I like my cocktails,

but when life gives me lemons I can’t turn to them much.

When life gives you lemons

You can toss them.

You don’t have to use them!

Maybe hold them for a moment; give them a feel.

They were given to you.

When life gives you lemons,

Eat your chips with chopsticks.

The Point of Peace

Dear You,

I know lately you might be looking around at what is going in our world and feel a number of things…and I understand. I feel it too. I am not all of these things all of the time, but I am all of these at different points in time.

It is so important to try to hone in the weight of super heavy emotions, and do what needs to be done to lift them off. With everything that we are it can feel so tough, but we are not the ones experiencing the toughest. There are people suffering in real time, right now, and for those of us who feel it yes, it is a legitimate feeling. But if you are reading this, you are also mostly safe right now. The tears are being shed in the safety of our homes, apartment, office, and cars.
Go ahead and feel it, but please don’t forget this:
1) You have the power to take action with the things you feel are wrong with this world. You have a voice, you have social media, maybe a little extra income, or some extra time.
2) Your getting back to that calmer place inside of you, your point of peace, WILL make a difference in the world.

How?

As you step outside into daily life, going to the office, getting groceries, or taking your kids to the park…your peace could very well become the one refreshing, or comforting thing to someone you cross paths with. Think about how caring for yourself has a ripple effect on the every day interactions you have with other people who could very well be challenged just the way you have been.

This is how you make a difference.
