My First Reiki

On July 8th, 2022 I had my first ever Reiki session and I’m pretty over the moon about it honestly. I know that it has to do with chakra balancing (which we talked about in another blog) but logistically I had no idea what the process was to look, feel or sound like.

What Led Me To Go

When I did the Launch Dayton Early Risers program I remembered the facilitator mentioning that she’s done a reiki session before. I loved how warm she felt and how balanced she seemed so on that alone it seemed like a good idea. But as she described the benefits of the session I grew even more intrigued. She talked a lot about the healing journey she was on as a whole.

Months after that, now a few months ago, I stroll into Barnes & Nobles as I typically do. I often don’t know what book I want and just let the literature choose me. Well, I see these two spiritual series that remind me of the For Dummies books. Amongst others in the two series, I decided to get the Reiki book.

Learn Something New

I’ve been alternating between all 10 books and so I’ve read the Reiki book a chapter at a time. As it goes into explaining that there are layers and there are secrets and symbols and there’s an oral tradition I get even more intrigued ! I have a goal to open a metaphysical store in the near future. In the back, I’d like to have open rooms for spiritual services. I figured one of them could be Reiki !

So a week prior to my appointment, as I was reading the book, I decide to just go for it and see if there’s a practitioner who looks like me close to me and at an affordable price. I found one ! Not only did I find one online close by but TWO people that I know and trust had left online reviews.

The Reiki Experience

It was super interesting because when I first started reading tarot for friends I would always get this distinct feeling in my throat and I had no idea what it was. I get a lot of messages in songs. Sometimes when I’d sing out loud the feeling would go away so of course I thought it meant I need to sing. Then I would notice I felt it when I thought about saying something and then changed my mind. So I realized it’s when I need to use my throat chakra in general.

So when I arrived at the space to get the service. I had the wildest urge to word vomit. The blue sheets stood out to me but I wasn’t sure why. Then in the session, she said she felt that I had a problem speaking up sometimes and she picked up on that through my intake form and thus decided to use the blue sheets.

From there, it was sort of like a therapy session. She asked me questions about myself so that she could get more context to what kind of healing I may need. That way she could give good suggestions for things I can do at home to stay balanced. She used tuning forks and other sound tools. Honestly, I have no idea what they were but I loved that they were colorful. And I just felt a nice peacefully energetic tingling sensation all over my body. When I left I felt peaceful and tired ! She reminded me to drink plenty of water and I reminded myself to eat real foods.

Update Reiki Session

I went back for a second session ! It’s wild because I meant to go back every three months. I didn’t even realize that it had been since JULY ! My second session was in February 2023 by the same woman/business, Peace Within 111. I went back due to have some pretty intense panic attacks. It turns out that all of my chakras were completely shut down this time. It turns out it’s partially due to my ascension flu !
