For the past several months, I’ve been trying to figure out what’s been going on with me. Actually, it’s been five months. To back up just a bit, last March, I was having a more than difficult time with my son and his issues and anxieties about school. I had also connected with a wonderful blogger whose son has sensory processing disorder, as does mine. She mentioned using Reiki on him to help him calm down and to be able to fall asleep. Since sleep has always been an issue for my son, and his anxieties rolling around his head at night can wreak havoc with any attempts at sleep, I found a local Reiki class.
I really enjoyed the class, and our Reiki Master sent us away with the comment that, “This is just the beginning of a journey.” (When a practitioner gives Reiki, they allow energy from the universal source of all life, to pass through them and into another person, with the goal of relaxation and potential healing). Little did I know just what would happen in the coming weeks.
Having been a client of an energy therapist for several months at that point, and having been attuned as a Reiki practitioner, I became more and more interested in healing, using the life force energy that is all around us. The center where I took my Reiki class, offered a talk by a man who called himself a High Frequency Energy Healer. After that talk, I knew I wanted to receive a healing session from this man; and I did. I was able to release boatloads of lower frequency “garbage” from myself= I was physically more comfortable, and had much more peace and calmness in my heart. About a week later, I thought it would be interesting to have a psychic reading with a woman who had testified at the talk where I learned what high frequency healing is. She had been healed by the same man, and after reading her website, I became intrigued with her.
During the reading, this woman knew all about me without my having to tell her much at all. She could see my past, my wounds, and how much work I had already done on myself. She was receiving guidance from God via angels, and passed on messages to me from my own guides and angels. They told me just what I needed to hear, when I needed to hear it, in a way that I was very receptive to it. The information given to me gave me clarity and a new sense of peace. It really put my life in a new light, and tied it all together for me. Something else happened that I haven’t been able to label until recently. She broke me open- I have been having a spiritual awakening ever since. I have been called to service on behalf of mankind and there is nothing that I can or want to do, to stop it.
Since that reading, I haven’t been able to absorb information fast enough: reading voraciously, listening to and watching lectures to the point of ignoring my family. I’ve been learning about us as energetic beings, how disease is created, and how we heal. I’ve also been learning about how we evolve and grow at the soul level, thus enabling us to move closer to our divine selves. My intuition is opening up. And with training, I know that I’ll be able to open it up even further. This will allow me to help and to heal myself and others even more. I’ll bet you never knew that you can use a psychic reading to do healing work. Readings can be a lot more than finding out when Prince Charming will be coming your way, or when that new job will arrive.
The most wonderful benefit from spiritually awakening, is that I have never felt such a close connection to God, the Universal All That Is, the Divine, and whatever else you choose to call it. I wasn’t raised in a home where faith was discussed. We rarely went to church; and when I went, I had some real issues with some of the prayers and ideals. I felt like a phony. No one ever told me to just take the good stuff, the things that resonated in my heart, and leave the rest behind. That’s what a good teacher will tell you.
So, here I am, a sponge that has long been dry and is now absorbing and opening up. It’s been so amazing. What is upcoming? Moving closer to my divine self, and a wanting to learn more about and to connect to the realm beyond the physical. Growing my abilities to help others heal. Learning about my life lessons for the purpose of soul advancement, and working on one in particular: taking better care of myself by treating this vessel, this meat suit, with more love and respect. Now is the time to put more attention on this body that houses my spirit and lets me have the human experience. It’s a tall order for me, and will put me to the test. But I know that by putting on my big girl panties, calling on support from this world and beyond, and manning up, I will be able to do it.
Along the way of my awakening and adventure, I hope to demystify the realm beyond the physical that goes by many names and is reached many ways. You touch it every day when you get a hunch, and make a decision based on gut instinct. It’s not scary or woo woo. It’s part of all of us, and it’s as natural as having a vivid dream of a friend or relative that has passed away. Come along and experience the ride with me. After all, life isn’t a guided tour, it’s a journey! And for the time being, this journey is becoming mystical.
How very exciting, M2M. I continue to be fascinated.
Thanks Lenore. It’s all still sinking in. Just a few years ago, I was just another mother making it day to day, trying to deal with a bad back and a demanding child, with a husband whose job has him absent a lot (so I’m essentially a single parent 50% of the time). And now I’ve been opened to this “calling” and it’s blowing my mind in a very good way.
While reading this I just kept nodding my head! Yes! I am feeling the same way. It’s opening up huge possibilities spiritually and helping me to heal myself and take care of myself more.
Did you do any Reiki on your son yet? Curious how that went if you did.
I haven’t done Reiki in months. I know I should be keeping up with it as practice is the key, but life got in the way. I finally decided to do some on myself the other night as I felt a sore throat coming on. I concentrated on my throat chakra the most, of course. I ended up feeling refreshed and calm, like cool water was flowing over me. Something I haven’t felt in some time due to all the stress I’ve been under. It reminded me of the power of energy healing and how it is always there for us to use. My friend here in Maine and I are going to take the final Reiki Master level teaching soon and I cannot wait. Ideally, we want to join together to provide Reiki to clients soon after. I feel like this is a new adventure in my life that I never saw coming. It’s like coming home. Good for you for feeling the same!
I really feel that a lot of people are “waking up” lately (because the planet really needs it right now). As for giving Reiki to my son, one night when he was having trouble falling asleep, he asked me for it. I asked him where he wanted my hands, and he said his tummy. I layed hands on his tummy and within 60 seconds he was asleep. Even though he hasn’t officially been attuned, he knows that he has healing hands, and if I am complaining about a sore this or ouchy that, he’ll offer me Reiki (which I always accept!).
I’ll be taking the next level of Reiki hopefully in Sept. or Oct. and I’m really looking forward to it. As for the adventure that you never saw coming- yeehawwwww!!!
I was humbled in reading this post…you have been the best- most open- receptive “student” I have ever had the pleasure of working with!!! You took the information given and DID something with it…Bless you!!!! Watching your journey into awakening is most inspiring and I applaude your ever effort. You have embraced with an open heart your TRUE self and shared it and cultivated it with such passion and to see the benefits it brings to you and others is indeed Divine.
Bless you my precious Soul Sister,
I will never be able to thank you enough. And I love learning things from you. Love you always, my soul sister!!
Reblogged this on Life Is A Journey… Not A Guided Tour and commented:
In answer to candidkay’s [http://candidkay.com/] question of what made me wake up spiritually, I am reblogging this article I wrote about 2 1/2 years ago. It describes what happened.
This is all so exciting! I look forward to hearing more, as this amazing journey unfolds! My cousin is a very talented astrologer and she sent this this the other day: “Tomorrow as we wake up to a new year, we awaken to a new moon as well,
heralding in new energy and a new cycle.
This New Moon runs deep as the moon joins the Sun, Mercury and Pluto.
This brings experiences (personally and collectively) that strip away superficialities
and pretense and get us to the core of who we are. Pluto breaks through illusions in
search of the utter truth. It shines light on our darkness. We witness the light and the
deeper shadows of our psyches and may have to face letting go of things we believed
ourselves to be in order to become our truer, more essential self. Often circumstances
will orchestrate this. Things that are not working, whether thought processes, paradigms
or lifestyle, will undergo change. Personally and collectively there’s a revolution and if we’re
willing, a deeper truth and authenticity. Pluto transits often coincide with death, separation
and destruction, but only to clear away the worn out and bring about rebirth in the areas of life
where it is needed.
It also promises new levels of intimacy, not only with others but with ourselves. It insists we let go
of things that are holding us back from deep and meaningful experience and feel the life force we
have resisted for so long. It reminds us that we are pure energy, no more no less, flowing through
the cosmos, through time and space. Will we use the power for higher good, or for exclusively selfish purposes, for creation or destruction?” I think it might resonate for you and Mainiac. It does for me! She is very good, and does professional readings. This she sent as part of a New Year’s letter to a few of us. All my best in this New Year!
Thanks for reading Dawn. Yes, the adventure began almost 3 years ago now and things have definitely changed in my life. The message your cousin sent you resonates with what I’ve been hearing for a few years now; about things that don’t serve us well or don’t work for us anymore, falling away. I have had a few friendships go by the wayside (very happily). I have seen my own thought processes shift and change. And you can see this process of change happening at all levels, including national and global. It can look like chaos, but it’s just old paradigms falling away, not so gracefully.
