For those who are just reading, months ago, July 20th, 2017, my life changed drastically. On vacation, heading to a family reunion in Colorado, a car driving way too fast, quite erratic and uninsured hit us head on. He killed my husband and my 16 year old son and badly injuring my 14 year old son and myself. It has been a challenging time to say the least.
But, this is a blog about Reiki and how Reiki can help us through any difficulty in our lives, healing us through the good and the bad, even the unimaginable.
Life on earth is unpredictable. We literally do not know what tomorrow brings. But, I know that Reiki brings my connection to Creator. We as humans need this connection more than ever. People are feeling disconnected. People are feeling that the spiritual practice they’ve been doing has not been getting them the connection they need, they are seeking some other way. I was a seeker and I found my connection to the God of my heart, through Reiki.
Reiki brought that tangible connection to me and I’m more grateful now then I’ve ever been. I can’t promise I’ll be writing consistently since I’m still in deep grieving. What I will promise is that if I feel Divine poking and prodding to write a blog, I’ll write a blog. I’ll write if I feel it’s important and I won’t waste your time or mine. I’ll probably be writing about grieving a lot, but Reiki for grieving is Reiki for life and you can translate much of these experiences to other situations in life too. It’s all good.
HOW REIKI HAS HELPED ME SO FAR
The first aspect I want to talk about, and maybe quite possibly the most important one….
Reiki brings the most amazing people into ones life –
I’ve been teaching Reiki in Sequim for nine years. When the crash happened my Reiki students rallied. They flew to Colorado to take care of me in the hospital, taking turns for more than a month. They volunteered to stay with me and care-give for me 24 hours a day for four months and after during the day. They have brought me food, cards, tissues, crystals and other things from their hearts. They have donated money to a fund for my family (Sawyer and I) to help pay the bills we cannot pay at this time. They have driven me and Sawyer to countless doctors appointments since I couldn’t drive for ten months after the accident and they even came over to pick up our dog, Mandy’s poop in the backyard. Like I said, AMAZING!
As well, they’ve spent endless hours listening to me talk about, cry and grieve for my family. Fifteen months later at this writing, they still sit and listen and hold space for me to grieve as I need to.
THANK YOU REIKI. THANK YOU TO MY AMAZING REIKI CLIENTS AND STUDENTS AND FRIENDS.
SO GRATEFUL, SO BLESSED,
