 In August, I was attuned for Reiki I, finally! I had only worked on 3 people since my attunement… until this weekend.

This weekend I went to Maryland for a wedding. I was there for about 4 days. During the chaotic preparations, the bride’s maids were exhausted and stressed. Most of us stayed at the couple’s house. There was much to be done. Every single day since being there, I performed Reiki on the girls, including the bride.

None of the ladies knew about Reiki or energy healing although some were familiar with the 7 main chakras. And ever since my attunement, I like to incorporate reiki into my scalp massages, so I thought it was a nice way to introduce this modality.

After spending 4 days with ladies I’ve only seen about 5 times in my lifetime, I realized how stressed out women tend to be on a regular basis. I gathered this through the girl talks every night after cleaning, cooking and wine.

After every mini session, all the ladies had similar yet unique experiences. But one thing in common was their satisfaction of relaxing and breathing for a few minutes without interruption, without being bombarded with mundane distractions.

As I was reading an article about reiki for cancer patients (I will write about that later), the quote below rang true to me. Ever since I began my daily meditations in the beginning of this year, I have an easier time dealing with daily activities or interactions. It gives me a sense of peace and purpose. It brings me closer to the Divine.

I’m glad I was able to help these ladies achieve this peace of mind, even if only for the weekend.

Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh often refers to the importance of stopping as a way to cultivate inner healing: 

“At first, ’stopping’ may look like a kind of resistance to modern life, but it is not… Humankind’s survival depends on our ability to stop rushing. Stopping is not only to stop the negative, but to allow positive healing to take place.”

    What a neophyte has learned about meditation….most importantly…just do it.

    “Live your daily life in a way that you never lose yourself. When you are carried
    away with your worries, fears, cravings, anger, and desire, you run away from yourself
    and you lose yourself. The practice is always to go back to oneself.” ~ Thich Nhat Hanh

  2. Congratulations! I’ve been doing Reike and other healing modalities for a very long time. It never ceases to amaze me how a little bit of touch can ease so much modern day stress. The quotes today are awesome! Thank you so much for sharing!

    Oh, and btw, what a wonderful gift you gave those womyn!

    • Thank you. I just realized you added a comment. Reiki is awesome, and I love offering it to others. I’m looking forward to being attuned to Reiki II and III. I want to give healing to as many people as possible, and teaching this wonderful universal gift that we are granted as human beings.

  3. It was so great to read about you giving Reiki to the bridesmaids and how it helped them. You seemed to learn a lot from it too. Way to go, keep up the great Reiki work. It can change your life, it did mine, for sure. I’ll look forward to reading more of your blogs.

    • Thank you for commenting. It surely has changed my life. And in such a way that allows me to become very unselfish and giving, not that I was unselfish before or a non-giver. But it has put me in a position where all I think about is finding ways to serve others by offering healing and unconditional love. it’s truly a beautiful thing.
