Such a delight to share what Reiki is to a first timer today.
How do you describe Reiki to someone that has never had it or anything like it before, but trusts you and is desperate for some help with their pain?
The answer is, you don’t. You explain enough to let them know what’s expected of them and what they might experience and then you let yourself be guided by intuition and the healing do it’s thing.
As Reiki practitioners you don’t have to have all the answers, you just have to listen and be in the moment.
Our bodies are talking to us all the time, telling us where we’re going against our wishes, when our burdens have got too much to bear alone, when we’re frightened to move forwards and when we’re more upset than we really let on.
When we listen to our bodies we get insights into where to go next, what we love, what sustains us and what resources to invest in.
I’m not special
It takes no special skill to do this, I am not ‘gifted’ in any way, I simply liked the idea of being able to do this, so I trained up so I could. It really is that simple.
I sent today’s client home with a leaflet so she can read up on what she has just experienced. If it is right she’ll come back and have more, and if it isn’t, she won’t.
Despite what some people say, there is no set way anyone has to deal with their challenges and I’ve never seen it written anywhere we have to deal with our challenges at all – because, and this is the most important point to remember at all – we are already perfect, just as we are.
