I am quite happy to have finally started my Reiki training yesterday!
I was first introduced to Reiki over 20 years ago through a close family friend who also does intuitive readings. My first experience of non-medical care was her doing a Reiki session on me a few months after my car accident in 2001. I have been interested in learning as much as I can about energy healing ever since.
I have had a few Reiki Master friends over the years who have offered to teach me Reiki but the timing has never lined up to allow for it to happen. I was ecstatic when I found someone who could teach me while also helping to apply the science to energy medicine!
While I certainly do not need to know exactly how the body works to do the type of work I do, it certainly helps. I am the type of person who wants to know how and why things work the way they do. When the opportunity came up for me to learn from someone who has a science background and can apply the science, I was ecstatic!
I am hoping to be ready to take the next level of Reiki in the Fall. Until then, much practice will be had between myself, partner, son and kitties.
