About 7 years ago, I was working at one of the commercial TV networks and had just moved from Perth to Melbourne. I was completely overwhelmed and struggling with all the things a move across the country brings; new job, place, relationship etc. I met one of my closest friends through work and she introduced me to her mum – a Reiki practitioner. I had no idea what Reiki was at the time but was willing to try anything. I was on the verge of having a nervous breakdown at 27 years of age.
She explained to me that Reiki works on an energetic level to emotionally and physically heal your body. My first few experiences were lying on a massage table, while she practiced different hand positions and movements over my body. I felt completely relaxed as she worked on me, and sometimes I would even fall asleep. Those were some of the calmest and happiest moments in my life.
As I had more sessions, I started feeling a clarity in my mind that I had never experienced before. There was an inner peace that I had always read about, but never believed I could actually achieve. Sometimes I would have an emotional release throughout the treatment and challenging memories would come up, but that experience always made me feel better when I left the session.
If you’re wondering whether Reiki is for you, or aren’t sure where to start – let’s have a chat!
