It’s been quite a while since I’ve posted here. My absence has been due to a new course of action into the realm of teaching. Please understand that I never meant to be a Reiki Teacher! I’m quite content working with people one-on-one in a quiet, dark room that feels safe and cozy. However my spirit had another plan for me and has been pulling me to step up and start sharing the work I am so passionate about in an even bigger way. I love the idea of giving the gift of Reiki to the masses; I believe everyone can benefit from the empowerment that comes from having such an amazing tool available at their fingertips. Yet as a dear friend so succinctly said yesterday while we were walking along the edge of the Pacific; I never want to be the center of attention. It’s true!
So how does an empathic introvert make such a transition? I give full credit to Reiki for this amazing transformation. Reiki has helped me develop my intuition so that I may receive guidance on how to best proceed and has also given me the trust I need to follow this guidance. Reiki gives me the courage to move forward when I’d really rather crawl back into bed. Reiki supports me as I prepare for each class, draws just the right students to me, and gives me the right words at each and every moment along the way. The healing I have experienced from years of self-treatments has encouraged me to let go of old wounds and open to my truth, as well as the strength to carry on when I feel doubt rising from within.
The journey has been long and simultaneously exhausting and exhilarating, and there is no end in sight. Yet I wouldn’t change a thing, because clearly I am right on track to fulfilling My Divine Life Purpose. Every day I am grateful that the gift I have come to this world to share is the same gift that gives me all that I need in order to do so. The more deeply I dive into the pool of Reiki, the more healing I receive and the more energy I have to offer my students. It is a self-perpetuating cycle that even during my darkest days brings me great joy, peace, and freedom. Taking the plunge to become a teacher has been both scary and rewarding and promises to be the best choice I have ever made.
