Yesterday I attended my very first Reiki healing session. I had many expectations but I made sure to remind myself to stay clear of them all, we all know that spirituality, healing and love need remain as far away as possible from this entity named ‘expectation’.
Convenience was on my side as she lived right down my road. I had come to know of her services through a neighborhood group chat. I quickly messaged her and we began chatting. I was excited to try this out and had very little knowledge of how intense this session would really be.
Marriam and I began with the consultation, we sat in conversation, digging down into my depths, removing all the toxic weeds that had rooted themselves in my inner being. We even did some role play! Her technique was a perfect blend of gentle yet stern, helping me smoothly navigate my emotions in a safe space. The session was intense and tears were shed, I had moments where my hair stood and I felt things I hadn’t before, I guess it’s because I was navigating untraveled paths within myself, opening doors that I had consciously shut and locked in a desperate attempt to protect myself.
We then moved onto the next session, the physical healing, the part I had been anticipating! She explained that everyone experiences the process uniquely, and that my body might feel strange sensations, that this was all due to the clearing of negative energies, opening way for flow of the Chakras.
I learnt this day that the body has a life of its own, quite literally. She moved her hands across my body, starting at the top of my head and ending at the base of my feet, gently her hands hovered over my centers and I felt my body react, twitching, jerking, shivering and heating up while I lay encrusted in my stillness, I wasn’t there, I was floating in a space of serenity, feeling numbed of the physical world.
When I came to, I felt very light, as if I was no longer in my body, as if I had been emptied. I drove home with an inner smile.
From this session I learnt much about myself and the inner strength I possess, that I should come first in my life if I am ever to live a live a genuinely peaceful existence.
A mantra shared with me by an amazing soul reads;
I live in abundance
I give in abundance
I have in abundance
I receive in abundance
I share through this abundance.
