The journey of a life time began with Reiki; it was like fining my way back home. There was a piece of me that was missing. It started eight or so years ago. I began a quest to learn more about myself through my Native American heritage. I devoured every book I could get my hands on about the native culture and history. What a grand adventure...
At the time I had just entered massage therapy school. My life was flowing. Midway through school I developed a debilitating back problem. Because I was in such pain both physically and emotionally I was unable to attend class. I decided to try a chiropractor but I was still in unbearable pain. My days were numbered. I had missed seven of the nine days allowed before being dropped from the program. I had worked so hard and knew with every breath in me that I was supposed to be a therapist. I questioned why this happened. Better yet, what I could do to transform this obstacle into an opportunity.
Then a miracle happened. While lying in bed at 3:00 a.m. unable to sleep because of the pain and depression over the possibility of being kicked out of school a feeling of clarity came to me. I knew I could be healed through Reiki. I felt led to place my hands on the back of my head. I said a simple prayer of faith and love. The heat began to travel through my body. I felt like I was in a furnace. It didn't hurt and felt so loving and peaceful, like I was being cradled. Within minutes I felt an excruciating pain in my lower back and cried out. It was as if two hands had taken my spine and snapped it back into place. At first I was stunned then I realized I had no more pain. At that moment tears of joy, relief and gratitude flowed down my cheeks. I sat up and got out of bed with no pain! It was gone! I thanked God for this miracle and the wonderful gift of Reiki he had brought into my life.
Changed forever, I finished school and went on to be blessed to take mastership in Usui and Karuna Reiki®. This is but one of many of my blessed journeys with Reiki! Reiki continues to bring miracles into my life each day.
