Somehow I found myself in the shitty place of being depressed, worrying about too much crap that doesn’t matter, and not loving myself enough. One of my best friends referred me to this incredible angelic creature named Shayoon that’s a Rieki healer. I had no clue what I was in for, (honestly I thought it was a massage) but I knew I needed something, and was down to follow my spiritual journey. Turns out Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that promotes healing. It’s administered by “laying on hands” and is based on the idea that an unseen “life force energy” flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. It was just what I needed!
I arrived and walked into a space that automatically makes you feel safe, at home, and gave me an overall sense of being right where I was supposed to be at that moment. On a dresser there where beautiful crystals with a little spiritual oils and knickknacks. The bed you lay on had the best blanket I’d ever seen, and it turns out that her husband makes these amazing blankets (Sidenote, I must have one)!
The session began with Shayoon asking a series of questions about life, looking for any blockages I might have. Then I got onto the table to get into it. She put a cloth over my eyes so I could go into my deepest meditation, then began. She started from the head and went down very slowly concentrating on certain parts of the body where she felt blockages and tension. I know all of this may sound super hippy-ish, but this shit is real! The parts that she stopped on to concentrate where literally each part of my body that I had aches and pain in. (I didn’t tell her any of this) It was crazy! I felt a warm sensation as she would focus on those areas. Then she put crystals in my hands, and I really felt a charge of energy. When the session was over I stood up and felt cleansed, like I had been given an energy/chakra reset. She gave me an amazing book that is helping me to reconnect with whats important in my life, be more present in the Moment, and teaching me how to meditate and be more thankful for my blessings.
It’s been almost a week, and my aches and pains (for years) that I was feeling are all pretty much gone. I’m not gassing you, like they’re for real gone! It’s something you can’t really explain unless you experience it, and you have to be open to it. So go get in touch with your inner hippy and dive into some spirituality, your soul will thank you!
