A call to reiki healing
Today start my Reiki training. I am so excited, but can I let you in on a little secret? I booked my Reiki training without ever having even experienced a Reiki treatment, without even really knowing what was involved or what reiki even is. You’re probably wondering why? Why invest time, energy and money in somethin gyou know nothing about?
The only answer I have for you is that I was called.
You see, back at beginning of the year I had a dream very vivid dream that I was a Reiki practitioner in my dream , treating and healing people. I could feel such a beautiful and loving energy but when I woke I still had no idea what reiki was, I couldn’t remember any of the details of the dream but I was certain that was what I was doing.
Speaking to a friend about the dream we wondered whether it was a calling for me to train or simply a sign that I needed a reiki treatment myself. I felt that it was the former but life, as it does, got in the way and I didn’t think much about it again until February.
During a family outing my little boy fell and hit his head and face on some rocks. His nose bled and bled, his face was swollen and bruised and my heart ached for him. That night when he woke upset and I held him close I instinctively put his hand on my heart and my hand to the back of his head and sat with him, eyes closed and filled with love, thinking about his poor little face and my longing to make it better. Into my closed eyes popped a vision of a warm bright light radiating from my heart, my hand started to tingle and feel hot against the back of the head and it felt as if the light was pouring from my heart, down my arm and though my hand. I don’t know how long I stayed there with him snuggled to my chest but the next morning we saw a noticeable and surprising reduction in the swelling around his nose and face. I took to some “woo woo” groups I am a part of to see if anyone knew what the experience was and all answers came back the same: Reiki.
So I started researching and making calls to enquire about reiki training. I’m a firm believer that our intuition won’t steer us wrong so I used mine to choose the right teacher and course for me, standing firm in the belief that this is something that I am meant to do. I've purposefully not researched online as I don't want to have any expectations or preconceptions and instead just trust the journey.
It’s taken a few months to juggle my commitments to find the date but finally the day is here and I can’t wait to get started on my reiki journey and finally learn what on earth this reiki thing is all about!
