Maybe you have you experienced Reiki through treatment from a practitioner and it has led you here. Maybe you have accessed my introductory Reiki course and want to progress on. Maybe you have been called to Reiki as an impulse from your heart… then I am pleased to be here and of service in you personal growth and development. Life is full of up’s and downs, bumps in the road, upheavals and changes. But there is one thing that always remains the same and that is Reiki. Reiki is a wonderful healing and spiritual practice that can support you as you navigate your way through life. And when things become tremendously difficult you can place your hands in Gassho and recite the Reiki principles, apply healing and know that all is well.But know that Reiki is a holistic therapy and spiritual practice that treats brain, body, being balanced.My personal experience of Reiki in a nutshell:My experience began back in 1999 I escaped a dreadful life experience, this left me experiencing trauma and all the effects that go hand in hand with trauma. One day a friend invited me to join her at a pamper day at a local community setting. There I experienced Reiki; I was very fortunate as the lady was packing up and didn’t really have time. But she stopped and she gifted me her last 20 minutes that should have been used to pack up and clear away. I never experienced anything like it before. 20 minutes seemed like hours and I felt the deepest comfort and calm. As I “returned” from what can only be described as the Presence of Divinity, I felt my life had changed. Thereafter life did change. There were many bumps and issues but Reiki seemed to be present at every turn… as if beckoning to me the way of peace. I followed the way and life just kept improving and getting better and better as experiences of Chi Kung and healings with more practitioners came to me. Over the course of time I enrolled onto my holistic therapy training and it was one day when I was in college and a fellow student talked to me about her Reiki Master teacher friend. her friend was visiting some months later and was going to attune my fellow student to Reiki and she asked if I would want to have this also. I was sceptical, yet I had no reason for Reiki had been present and I had experienced Reiki. But I went along and life changed again. I had not experienced Reiki attunements and this was something very different. Not only was I in the “Presence of Divinity” I was elevated to a place and space that felt limitless, timeless and as if I had come home. I was at one with what is known as source, God, Divinity. I digressed my path and it took me to “Plato’s cave” and the darkest nights of the soul… From this I emerged and here I am today, grateful of my many lessons, and teachers and the gifts each have bestowed.Moving on with your Reiki course…Reiki can safely be used in combination with orthodox medical care and other complementary therapies.Reiki combines well with many alternative therapies, including Acupuncture, Aromatherapy, Reflexology, Kinesiology, Counselling and will increase their effectiveness and decrease the time required to see positive change. Sometimes people find that with regular Reiki treatments their dependence on medication may be reduced. For example someone on Thyroxine may find that the thyroid gland is kick started by the Reiki, therefore for a time they could have symptoms of excess thyroid production until the medication is adjusted appropriately.It is therefore recommended to advise people on thyroid or diabetic medication of this possibility so they can be prepared to contact their GP if necessary. It may even be appropriate to let their doctor know beforehand that they are receiving Reiki if they are on Thyroxine or diabetic medicationWho is this course for?This course is for anyone who is interested in self-healing, healing loved ones and friends, through the application of natural methods that are friendly and healing to Mother Earth.
