The first time I experienced the value of my body, I was 42 yrs. old. Until then I had never paid attention to myself or even pamper myself. I was at the peak of my stresses in my life, that I went into depression (I had never known what sadness or feeling depressed as I heard from others, I thought losing your parents meant feeling sad) one tablet of FLUDAC sent me rocketing to the moon. Honestly, the next morning I found my legs paralyzed, it was a shock to me I couldn’t afford to bed ridden with two growing up children to take care off. I still remember the yearning to walk and gradually, I was able to get up later in the day-THAT DAY I took a vow and promised myself NEVER, NEVER to allow myself in this situation that's when I started looking for an anchor other than allopathy and I bumped into REIKI and since then I haven’t looked back.
I started with the first and second degree and put all my faith into the life-force energy, and slowly got pushed to learn the teaching level, my faith and sincerity pushed me to learn other holistic modalities which I use them as surgical tools when I am healing, during this period I realized that marriage, children having settling them was not enough I had to evolve further, hence I made a decision to become a holistic healer.
REIKI helped to get rid of my chronic asthma, healed my relationship with my family, my perception to life changed.
You need the Midas to earn money which I lack, though I did not allow myself to be commercial, through word of mouth I got to teach students.
But I kept myself active with healing as I realized that I wanted to be a healer and remained content even though people hesitated to pay me, so though I haven’t earned monetarily I have earned in abundance in good fortune and good health. I can never forget when I was desperately searching for solutions/or to be heard until I did not pay, help would not be given, I understand the exchange of energy but where is the compassion when someone needs comforting I swore at that time to keep my doors open 24x7 for my students, That’s a promise I make to my students any time they call me even if it is late in the night I will attend to them, my family cooperates with me also in this issue.
Also, in the workshop I found that once you can heal you are told you are a doctor. I don’t agree to this. I strongly feel we are mere healers not doctors as the doctors are not fools to go through the rigorous training of four years, I find many reiki masters who tell their patients to give up medication. I know of a case of a friend who developed breast cancer, the docs suggested surgery, but a renowned reiki couple told her she could be cured 100% with reiki, she didn’t last three months as a result I strongly believe 50% of allopathy and 50% of reiki is equivalent to 100% cure.
In this metropolitan city, I was very lonely disgruntled with my group of friends, I entered the world of reiki hoping to make friends in spite of bumping high headed people in the workshop I have been successful to make one friend who is my lifeline now, she too doesn’t share the Midas touch like me, but we often tell each other even though we haven’t earned money, reiki has kept us away from the doors of the hospitals:-)and we are very thankful for that :-) People just don’t have the patience, in this fast moving jet age people want move at a fast pace, without attending school they want admission into college which is not possible. People want reiki to work like magic, overnight they should be cured of chronic diseases.
Many years ago in the 90`s I heard a lady talk to my friend about her aches and pains her last sentence left a deep impact on me. She said "for the last ten years I haven’t lived a day without pain “this lady finally died in 2010 and I think 10 -20 years of life of pain.
"A PAIN FREE BODY AND LIFE IS A PRECIOUS GIFT FROM THE UNIVERSE "APPRECIATE IT:-)
Love and light
