Reiki Level 1: My certification and practice experience
My darling yogi friend!!
I’m officially Reiki Level 1 certified!
And let me just tell you, in the training alone, I already experienced the powerful healing properties this practice has.
Buckle up, bestie, and get ready to read about that power.
As I’ve been diving deeper into my holistic health journey, I learned that allergies are also often linked to something spiritual. A resistance to something.
I remember expressing to an ENT a few years back that my sinus issues were stress related. He brushed this off and said I had an allergic-looking nose after my examination and yet, we couldn’t find the trigger. Hmm.
The allergy spray helped me a little, but as I dove deeper into the holistic realm, I learned that the sinuses hold grief and anger.
Fast forward to me moving out of my parent’s house, my sinuses dramatically improved since I was far away from the main grief and anger triggers.
Even after moving out, I’ve had a few allergy spouts. That allergy fatigue is no joke! It didn’t matter how much I slept, I still needed more. The brain fog was miserable during the hours I was forced to keep my eyes open.
In the days leading up to my Reiki training, I experienced another round of allergy fatigue. Honestly, it was so bad I was worried I would barely be functioning for this training I’d manifested for so long.
My sinuses were heavy through the training and I wanted to scratch my red eyes.
Finally, we reached the self-healing Reiki session that immediately followed our attunements.
I gently placed my hands over my eyes and I felt the energy pushing me back into my chair to the point I was afraid of falling back. I experienced the same sensation as my hands traveled to different key spots.
When I placed my hands at the back of my head, I felt an intense sensation at the base of my skull where I often experienced allergy tension.
After just a few minutes of self-healing, my energy was higher and my congestion started alleviating.
Then, we practiced Reiki on one another.
By the time the session was over, I felt like a new woman! I was bright-eyed and bushy-tailed. My headache was only a memory. Reiki healed those extreme symptoms effortlessly.
Now that it’s been several days, I can confirm that I’ve only felt better! Even my energy bounced back and I’ve been able to put my Starbucks addiction on hold.
