Discovering Reiki - My Personal Story
In 1990 I was given a gift, a book from India - Health In Your Hands - a look at ancient healing modalities. I would soon appreciate the significance of this gift. Within the next 3 years, the loss of loved ones, a very sad realization unfolded. Unable to hold it all together any longer, I had to make an unthinkable decision when the collapse of my family unit brought my life to an all time low. The stress of this transition and the consequences greatly affected my health. Medication, which had helped me function and helped keep my sanity, began to add to the effects of the stress.
I read my book and began to see my body in a new light. I soon realized my body could talk! I had tried to hide my pain and sorrow but could not hide it at all; it was all there within. Every cell of my being could relate without so much as a spoken word. My body could articulate far better than I could ever express in words. My biography had become my biology.
When my mother became terminally ill in the UK, I found practitioners locally who would give mom sessions. The peace, relief from pain, the blissful look on her face would last for several hours after receiving Reiki; I’d look on in amazement, it was something to behold.
On my return to Canada I joined a Yoga class. My teacher was a Reiki Master. I took the Reiki 1 course she was offering… I just had a knowing this was for me! Being dyslexic all my life, I also suffered from anxiety, panic attacks and very poor self esteem; the very thought of examinations would trigger a panic attack … Reiki required none of that thank goodness and I felt totally at ease during the course.
I shall always remember the awe and wonder at feeling the Universal Life Force coursing through my hands after receiving my Reiki 1 attunements! As I received and gave myself Reiki I began to heal. It was a very revealing time as I went through this process and began to recover my life. A few months later in 2000 I took my Reiki 2 Level. In 2001 my Master/Teacher Level. This level awakened within such joy, elation, love and amazing grace.
I’ve been enjoying volunteering, my practice, teaching Reiki ever since. It’s a joy to share Reiki. I now have a tool for life in my hands. Reiki has been life changing for me. I have a constant, loving companion in Reiki. This has become a wonderful ongoing journey of discovery.
