As I began this journey with Reiki I was amazed at how people wanted a place to go Reiki is creating an environment of comfort and support where people know they can be able to release their worries their fears, their pain having had massages before you know I’m used to somebody touching me but the healing doesn’t come from the manner of the touch like a massage the healing comes because there’s like this energy heat it’s coming from Lisa.
I definitely feel a response to the practitioner’s hands, it’s a warm sensation it’s a tingling sensation it’s very comfortable, it feels very safe.
I think my Reiki is really human contact that reflection of affection like I was hurt so much that I need that balance of love to be brought back to me.
I was so ready for it and I couldn’t believe I had waited so long in my life to be able to experience that moment of what it is to have energy healing.
For me, I get these rushes of energy I practically melted into the table with a wonderful relaxation.
Maybe I’m crazy but I feel like it’s like somebody is hugging me.
The way of the world that you carry on your shoulders is now lying in somebody else’s hands.
I’ve never been a follower of mind and body and health but I don’t think you need to be in order to gain the benefit, I know for me I truly believe it’s hope.
Reiki is a relaxation technique that balances the body, reduces stress and helps in the healing process. During Sessions, a practitioner shares Reiki directly through human touch.
When I first learned Reiki I was so skeptical in this day of modern medicine why wouldn’t you just take a pill why wouldn’t you just go see your therapist, but something happens during these Reiki sessions and I thought I have to share this, my friends need this, my family needs is everybody needs this.
As the practitioner, I’m honoring your space with your need for healing and so right now it is working on your heart center and… “it’s the place that I have no sadness my wife passed away two years ago so I’ve been going through some tough times there’s been weeks where I don’t know what I would have done without having some Reiki and it’s probably the most significant way that we communicate with each other”.
As long as I lay my hands on them and I surround us in this beautiful white light I feel my heart open up and I feel their heart open up and then this energy just flows.
Anybody can learn Reiki anybody can do what I’m doing. I was a specialized teacher I was an at-home mom I was cooking meals for my kids and picking up dog poop but I knew I had the capacity for empathy and I knew Reiki and sharing it with people was my opportunity this is something I need to do.
When I explain to people who don’t have any experience with energy. I always say it’s a technique that brings relaxation, stress reduction, and harmony we’re gonna be practicing feeling energy and that’s gonna be an important part of learning Reiki because we’re taking energy and we’re using our hands to give it on to a person I start at the top and I work down.
We let them know exactly what we’re doing we’re gonna be touching your eyes your ears I’m gonna cradle your head in my hands and you ask is it okay? once you start getting that experience then you can start to trust yourself and you can really take Reiki to wherever you want to go.
Little by little, we’re spreading Reiki and if it’s just one person at a time I’m grateful because it’s more people going out there and using it, when I went through the initial sessions I had this unloading of all the stuff that was pent up that I never knew that’s what Reiki Keys brought into my life and I’ve been forever grateful and never want to be without it again.
The basic fundamental be good to one another and be kind to yourself, so that part of Reiki becomes exactly who you are we have a love for yourself too a lot of space for him to come in but then also loving people enough to help heal them I forgot the primary ingredient in any type of healing is love.
It gives you a sense of not being alone it’s that human connection, there’s something else that’s there. I don’t know how to explain it but it’s helped a great deal you just have to try it. As I go to different places to share Reiki I embraced being more of a leader and then as I am opening those experiences I also am growing.
