I have always been the "mother hen" or the caretaker, in both my personal and professional lives. I have long known that my role in this life is to be one of teacher and healer of some sort. I believe that my writing is a form of teaching to those who need to find it, what I didn't know was what modality of healing I was meant to be in. I am a certified nursing assistant and worked in that field for 8 years and loved it, but I feel that I was not meant to continue long-term with that. Therapist? No, I would be too emotionally involved and that would not be good. Nurse? No. Massage therapist? No.
Then Reiki found me. That's how they say it happens - Reiki finds you, not the other way around. I first became aware of Reiki years ago, I can't even say exactly when or why. I knew the gist of what it was, but it was something that just remained in my periphery. Then it kept popping up in my life, more and more. It would come across my feeds in social media more and more. Eventually, I clued in. The Universe was patiently sending me a clear message. So, I decided to listen and I signed up for my levels 1, 2, and Master Reiki courses.
Those of you who have been reading my posts will know that I have been feeling lost and stuck in a rut for some time now. Well, since Reiki found me and I have been studying it, it is as though, finally, everything is falling into place. I feel a peace and a purpose that I have been so hungry for. I have completed my level 1 and am in the process of devouring level 2. Truly, I know that this is what I was meant to do.
I know that there is a lot of you who may not know what Reiki is. It is my hope, over time, to introduce you to the universal energy that is Reiki and maybe even pique your curiosity about it. For now, I will leave it all in your capable hands. I simply needed to share this exciting step in my journey with you all.
...and really, couldn't our world use all the healers it can get right now?
