Last night was another crystal bowl and Reiki meditation where I was performing Reiki while the crystal bowls were playing in the background. Allowing healing on various levels of being. It was a packed room, with twelve people participating in this event. It was our third event together in the past three months. All an incredible experience for everyone involved. To be in that environment now and doing something I love and am passionate about is such an amazing thing.
It gets me to thinking about my journey and how far I have come in the past two years. How I have transformed my life for the better in so many ways. It’s hard to believe there was a time when my life was controlled by fear and anxiety. Where I avoided everything. Life. People. Living. Now I am doing events like this, and the fear I once had, is no longer there controlling me. I am free. To be free is such a wonderful thing. Now I work to help others change their life and be free too.
My life has been a wild and crazy roller coaster over the years and has taken me to places I never dreamed of, and am doing things I never thought I could or would. All because I took a chance and took a leap of faith into the world. It was scary but I was no longer going to let that fear run my life. I love interacting with people and helping them make changes in their life. Reiki allows me to be able to do that as I’ve seen what Reiki and energy work can do. Reiki is just one of the many tools I have acquired over the years of healing myself.
I have been asked many questions on what is Reiki and I hope to answer some of them for people with this post.
So what is Reiki?
Reiki is a healing technique based on the principle that the therapist can channel energy into the patient by means of touch, to activate the natural healing processes of the patient’s body and restore physical and emotional well-being.
What is involved in a Reiki session?
In a typical session the client and the Reiki practitioner, get together and first talk about what brought the person to them. What they are hoping to achieve from a Reiki session and for new people a quick rundown of what to expect and what Reiki is.
The client then usually lays on a massage table, or in some cases a chair, and the Reiki practitioner connects to the Reiki energy and begins to channel it into the client through their hands, and into their body through various hand positions on the body. Reiki can also be done hands off as well. Reiki is conscious enough to go where it is needed. To bring balance to the body, mind, and spirit, to help the bodies own natural healing abilities and to strength the organs within the body.
Reiki so based on the principle of channeling universal life force, known to some as Chi or Qi.
A typical session can last from 30 minutes to an hour and a half. Most are usually an hour. Afterwards the client will feel relaxed, calm, and peaceful. During a session a client may fall asleep, or have an emotional response, such as crying. It’s all part of the healing process.
After wards it is recommended to drink plenty of water to help flush out any toxins and energies that are no longer needed by the body. It’s not uncommon to be thirsty and drink a lot, as well as use the bathroom frequently to expel it all, as well as have strange dreams, and even sleep a good night afterwards. Each session is unique to the person receiving it.
During a session a person may feel warmth, cold, tingles, or even have visions or feel loved ones around them. Most report a feeling of calm and peace.
A Reiki practitioner may also incorporate crystals or sound into the healing session.
Reiki and energy healing is about bringing balance to the individual who is seeking healing. A Reiki practitioner is only a channel for the Reiki energies, healing is up to the person that seeks healing.
If given a chance to experience a Reiki session, I recommend it. It may just change your life as it has me.
Energy healing does not replace medical treatment or medical advice. It’s a compliment to help you along your healing journey. To bring balance and wholeness to your entire being.
This past Monday I had the opportunity to once again be a part of a crystal bowl meditation, Halo Wellness in Marlton, NJ, while I provided Reiki on those who were a part of this meditation. The bowls were being played by my friend, Beth, and it was a wonderful turnout. We had 13 people involved. Which was a lot of Reiki to be channeling. Naturally I was exhausted afterward and the day after as well.
I’ve mentioned before my love for the crystal bowls and how much they have helped my healing journey. They have helped me clear out so much from my energy body, aura, and even my chakras. They have been so instrumental in helping me open up more and be able to step fully into my own power. I still have ways to go with my healing, but know I am on the right track. So to be able to be part of a meditation with them has been an incredible experience for me.
I am forever thankful for this journey. Reiki has now become such a huge part of my life and I can’t imagine my life without Reiki. I spent the past decade trying to run away from doing Reiki, but it always called me back to. Now I am happy to be listening to it’s call. I love Reiki, energy work, and what it can do for us. I look forward to what more it can do for me, my healing, and helping others. I have only scratched the surface of Reiki and I look forward to where it will take me.
I love hearing from others about their experiences with Reiki, from a session with me. Such positive experiences and comments from them. Where they do, are able to experience what Reiki can do for them. It’s exciting and I’m excited for them.
I am blown away with how far I have come on my journey over the past year. Where it has taken me. The people I have met and are now such a big part of my life. I can’t picture my life any other way. I am thankful for it all. It has not been easy and has been crazy at times. It has been a roller coaster and I am going with the flow of it all.
When I started it all, I never thought I’d get to where I am today. I never thought I’d be out there doing it all. Yet I am. And I have not been this happy, in a long, long time.
This was our second session, and I look forward to our next one together in June. If you’ve never been to a crystal bowl meditation, you may want to check one out, it may just change your life. As it did for me.
This past Saturday I had the opportunity to attend another Crystal bowl meditation. And once again I was not disappointed in my session. It was another incredible session and experience for me. This healing sessions have been so helpful during my journey. They have helped me to really clear things out of my life, so I can be free from them.
Each session I have had has helped me go deeper within my healing and myself. Helping to peel back layers of being to get into my true self. Over the years we learn to look at life a certain way which causes us to look at ourselves a certain way. Thanks to these sessions they are helping me to clear that out and help me to really see myself. It’s like seeing myself for the first time. I’m seeing life and living in a whole new way. It has really changed my life.
Going into this session I knew what I wanted to do. I wanted to tear down walls that I have. There is still so much doubt within me that blocks my progress and from moving forward in my life. There has been many a time where I have doubted what I can do to the point where I have fully believed I could not do this or that. A lot of that negativity and negative talk has held me back from fully realizing my potential and what I am capable of doing. So much so that at times it keeps me from doing things or of fear. It’s something that I have struggled with for the longest time that fueled my anxiety and panic. The fear that I couldn’t. That I was not able to. That I would not be good enough. Negative self talk is very damaging. So naturally it needed to go.
I knew that I have to take down those walls that I built and that have kept me out of the world. While they may have kept me “safe” they were preventing me from living my life. So I had to take them down. Which is what my focus was on working with the Crystal bowls. Taking those walls down. During the clearing and healing of the sounds of the flutes, and the Crystal bowls, I had a vision. I’m not entirely sure what it was I saw, and I am not sure that was what I needed to remember. All I do know is I was a powerful force just wipe everything away. I saw the image just blow away. As if it was completely taken down, and away from me. I then saw an image of Archangel Metatron, that I have on one of my card decks. I knew it was Metatron that took down those walls for me, and cleared things up for me.
It was such a powerful and humbling experience. I had so much gratitude for what I saw and felt. Within a day I could really feel the benefits of this. I could feel the wall and the barrier between myself and the world being gone. I can feel myself as being a part of the world now. Like o truly belong in it. I can feel the love that flows throughout creation and the world. It is such a humbling experience to be a part of. To feel that kind of life. It is amazing. I feel so much purpose, love, and joy now.
I know this is only the beginning of this new chapter, I have closed the last chapter. And if I say so myself, it is about time. I don’t know where life will take me. I look forward to it. To meeting new people, learning new things about myself, and growing. I have a lot to give to the world and look forward to doing so. It was incredible working with Metatron and I hope to continue working with him and the other angels.
One last note a friend of mine just started a new blog, Gilbert Speaks, give it check and a follow.
The Prince A Boo Boo edition. (A bub wah.)
This week that is now coming to an end is the 32 week marker. Which is 8 months. 8 months of going out every week, at least once a week. I never really thought that I would get to this place. I never really thought I would stick to it truthfully. Yet here I am. And I am glad that I have. It has taught and shown me so many great things and I have met incredible people along the way.
This journey has taken me to places I never even thought about going to, and doing things I never thought I would. Yet, I have done them. They have been so much fun and taught me so many new things. I am learning so much. This week was no exception. This week started on Thursday, where I would attend a healing workshop, “Healing with the Angels.” Where they would use crystal bowls and bring in the healing angels to bring in healing, and messages from the angels to us. I had already done a crystal bowl meditation, and really enjoyed it, so it was a no-brainer to attend another one. This time doing something new, and working with the angels. Once again I was not disappointed in the experience as it was another lovely healing session that really helped clear my energy and open me up more. I then had some interesting dreams that night that are still with me. And do I love the power and messages of dreams. So that was another plus to me. On top of that incredible experience, was another one for me. At this session was someone I had seen a few times before at sessions like these, we had never really talked before. Yet this night I would actually engage into a conversation with them willingly. Which is HUGE for me. That is something I would not have done in the past. This journey has helped me grow stronger within myself and more confident to be able to just openly start up a conversation with someone. That alone was worth the price of admission and is worth its weight in gold for me. And who knows where being able to talk to people will lead me in life. Better and better places. I even made eye contact from time to time. Something I have never really liked doing. The more I grow in confidence with myself the more I will be able to do things I never even dreamed of.
That there would be enough and I could consider that an incredible week in itself, but I did not stop there. Today I decided to enjoy myself, and life, and living, and go out and go for a walk. Enjoying the moment, and nature. Taking it all in. Even walked the dog some, before it started to rain. I did not let the rain dampen my spirits and went to the movies to check out, a movie about Peculiar kids. IMO, kids were already peculiar, we didn’t need a movie to tell us, what we all have known and suspected for quite some time. And why does Samuel Jackson always have to be the bad guy? Why can’t he be the nice guy for once. Not wondering why there is always snakes everywhere. I digress, mainly because I love to say digress.
Tomorrow I will be at a fundraiser doing oracle card readings for people. I am both excited and scared about it all in one. It will be a great experience for me and will really open me up to much more in life. Then next week I am doing some more card readings. It’s amazing and crazy how busy my weekends and months are these days. There was a time when my months consisted of just going to work. Now, I’m doing things like every weekend, and some weekends, both days. And that even branches into the week as well. Lots of adventure and fun times. Making up for a life of inactivity and I am loving every moment of it.
