Reiki is described as a Japanese form of alternative medicine called energy healing. Reiki practitioners use a technique called palm healing or hands-on healing through which a "universal energy" is said to be transferred through the palms of the practitioner to the patient in order to encourage emotional or physical healing.
I have been studying and living with Reiki energy since 2013. As life progressed, I learned more and more about Reiki and how it can help me. FINALLY I had my "AH HA" moment! My whole life made sense! I finally understood why I was repeating patterns. Emotional trauma stunted my desire to be myself; I wanted to hide away and not be noticed. I never wanted to be vulnerable or looked at as 'weak'. I remember even saying "I was the glue of the family". My sister had died when I was 10 years old and I felt like I needed to be the strong one. My own thoughts and feelings were not as important as anyone else. I had turned into a people pleaser and put everyone else's needs, thoughts, and emotions before my own. I got totally lost. I didn’t know who I was anymore!
While using Reiki I was able to heal from traumatic experiences; my sister's death, abusive relationships, mentality abusive bosses, even drug addiction. Reiki helped me to improve my confidence and establish boundaries - I was able to finally move forward. I was no longer stuck as a victim, but instead was progressing into a soulful being full of life and joy. I learned what it meant to be resilient and unapologetically authentic.
I also learned to use Reiki for healing relationships, manifestation, and to strengthen my psychic abilities which became stronger and I became more confident in using my gifts.
I was even able to add this into my massage practice to help others experience a deeper level of relaxation and healing that they did not even know they needed!
