The Wonder Years
I was young and walking through life vacantly, as a wounded healer, who wasn’t in body. I was not healing, I was lost.
It was during that time that I first encountered Reiki. More of a freak show than the magical first times most experience. I was on the bus station, of all places, when a friend of a friend offered to cure my son of his then fractured thumb. Since I thought it couldn’t be true, I allowed her to try. To my amazement it worked.
I enquired as to how you learn to do this ‘trick’ and the explanation given was so complicated, I presumed only a chosen few could learn it. Sometimes, I regret that I didn’t seize that opportunity. You see, Reiki was seeking me out, yet I wasn’t ready for it.
The second time it came for me, I was a little more open, unfortunately, I was also drunk and at a party. I had a small taster. Honestly, I thought the healer was odd and if anything I was a little scared of her.
Third Time Lucky?
Many years passed. The beauty of Reiki is its patience and subtle persistence. Again and again, it presented chances to me and I revoked it, like unrequited love.
Eventually it took drastic action to get my attention. Two nervous breakdowns later and I was finally ready to invite this wondrous energy into my life. By allowing it to permeate everything, I have shifted from a suicidal wreck who was convinced that life was against her, to a woman with purpose, hope and such Light that I can see Soul Reasons for everything, with a clarity that the Diamond Light of Reiki brings.
As layer upon layer of conditioning falls away, carried on the winds of change, all resistance fades as you are held in the arms of Reiki.
Simultaneously whilst stripping away the lies, the hurt, the pain, the suffering – the illusion; it also builds you up – the truth, the beauty, the support, the love, the growth, the evolution…
The Truth Will Set You Free
Reiki sets you free and it is relentless in its pursuit of your Greatest Good. It architects situations, people and lessons, as it clears your path forward gently, but with such determination, you cannot help but surrender to its will.
Reiki is so much more than relaxation or channelling energy. It is an intelligent relationship with the Divine, which will lead you deeper and deeper into your own Truth, seeking out on your behalf all that is needed for you to achieve your highest potential. It will wait an eternity for you to be ready and it will never falter.
Whilst lifting you from the darkest depths that you didn’t even know you were in, it will also walk you to destiny’s door. It will change you in ways you never thought possible and it will continue to support you dynamically through life. It will reach out and touch those who cross your path as it infiltrates all.
It’s been nearly three years since I gave in and consciously began my journey with Reiki. The more I let it in, the more it gives back. If you knew me before and you know me now, you can’t deny what it has done for me. I’m not special, Reiki can and will service all who invite it into their lives, like sending a flare up to your soul to say “I’m ready to be friends now”, it will take you places you never thought you’d go, it will teach and hold you. Together you will enter Heaven on Earth. If you’re willing to, it will truly transform your life, so the only time you look back, will be to wonder, as I do, why you didn’t do it sooner.
