How I accidently fell into Reiki…
There are many healing modalities out there today. Myself, I love Reiki. I am a certified Reiki Master Teacher and Practitioner. I kind of fell into Reiki. Many years ago, I was at a life coaching class and this woman in with all her crystals tells me she is a Reiki Healer and Blah Blah Blah Blah…to me it was some new age hocus pocus. I had no interest what’s so ever. Which is kind of odd because I had been reading tarot for some time, who was I to be so judgey. Anyway, I wasn’t having any of it. Several years later I took a workshop to help me with my tarot reading. It turned out that Reiki was part of that workshop and was kind of mandatory. Crap! Oh well, if it gets me where I need to go o.k. I read the manual before class, nope still not interested. Then going thru the class…still not interested. Healing just wasn’t for me. Then the attunement came and holy crap! All this energy showed up and something had changed. Something shifted in me. I felt the sacredness of Reiki. Now this changes the game! Maybe I can use it for something else, still didn’t want to be a healer.
Go home my teacher said, Reiki everything she said, come back for Reiki III she said. Reiki III and Master Teacher? Not only is my teacher trying to make me a healer, she wants me to teach this stuff to? Nope, nope, nope! I think I even placed my little hands on my hip as I said it and shook my head, no way, no how!
Well, not only did I return for Reiki III I became a Master Teacher shortly after that. My teacher still laughs at me today about that. I not only certify people in all phases of Reiki, I use it every day in every way.
I teach my students all the things I learned throughout the years. All the things that make Reiki so unique. The many different uses and techniques. I love watching my student’s growth and the personal journey. I even tell them this story.
I may have thought that I fell into Reiki but as we know, everything happens for a reason. Reiki is but one light on my path. A very powerful and divine light.
Whatever your light is, I hope you find it.
