My Reiki Path
Ever since I was a little girl I felt this calling inside me that I labeled early on as a “healer”. I wasn’t sure what that was or meant but I was fascinated with medicine women and the Native American way of life. I did not really do anything to nurture this feeling though.
When I went to college it was for nothing I had any interest in. I dreamed of being an artist but was encouraged to pick a more profitable career. So I chose business and I was bored to death. My college career lasted two years before I finally threw in the towel and surendered. No one was available to direct me, to discover my interests and help me explore alternatives. All I remember being encouraged to do is be a nurse, teacher or mother, none which appealed to me.
So I spent most of my life jumping from one career path to the other.
But I never forgot my feelings of being a “healer”.
Strangely enough, I never felt the desire to go into the medical field. That wasn’t the type of healing my soul quested for. What my heart desired was healing on a natural, spiritual, holistic level.
Fast forward into my 50’s and I finally discovered Reiki. My discovery came by way of crystals. Always a rock hound my eyes were finally opened to the healing power of Crystals. Somewhere along my Crystal path I learned about Energy Healing and then I heard the term Reiki.
I chose Reiki….or maybe Reiki chose me.
Funny thing is that up until 2011 I was living in Southern California where Healing Studios, Metaphysical Stores and Reiki Masters abound but it wasn’t until I moved to Southeastern Oklahoma that I learned more about and decided to become attuned to Reiki. After witnessing the deaths of my mother and brother by cancer I had to be able to do something. I no longer could just sit around. The healer in me yelled and screamed “Do something”.
At the same time I was making a move to Oklahoma, about 45 minutes away from my new town a “HEALING CENTER” was being opened. Coincidence? I think not. It was through this Healing Center that I had my first Reiki Treatment and met a Reiki Master. It was also at this center that I learned about my angels, ascended masters and had a reconnection with God and the Universe.
I received Level 1 and Level 2 attunements from Debbie Allen, whom I will be forever grateful too for sharing this gift.
A profound moment
For several years I did not do much with Reiki, I wasn’t sure what to do with it. I would invite people to my small home for Reiki Sessions but that was far and few in between. One day I received a call from a dear friend who had suffered a major heart attack. During her heart attack she remembers having a choice, to stay or to go. She made the choice to stay. Although she recovered well, for weeks (or maybe months) she felt disconnected and out of balance with the world.
She called me and asked for Reiki.
After her session we spoke for quite sometime. What I had to say did not come from me, it came from spirit. I was guided to share these words. This for me was a pivotal moment, since this had never happened to me before,but I truly felt in my heart that the words that came from my mouth were not my own.
Days later she called me and told me that she felt wonderful and all the uneasy, out of balance, out of sync feelings she was having were gone.
I witnessed the healing power of Reiki.
My practice started in 2014 in a small healing room in the back of my first art studio/gallery. Along with Reiki I also after Essential Touch, which is a Reiki infused Essential Oil massage. Additionally I love to check and clear chakras to be sure that all energy paths are open.
In 2016 I traveled to Sedona AZ and became ignited with Usui Holy Fire Reiki II at the Master Teacher Level. During the ignition the Holy Fire Reiki is placed within you by God himself so there is no longer a lineage. The teachers are truly just teachers and mentors. My teachers were Michael Baird and Laurelle Gaia from Peace Place who are licensed Professional ICRT Reiki Master Teachers.
Now I am ready to begin sharing Reiki with others so that they can help heal themselves and others. I am truly blessed to be on this path.
