Spiritual Growth, Reiki, and the Journey Continues

Spiritual Growth, Reiki, and the Journey Continues
This post leaves me short of words. It is hard to describe what I have been feeling and what I have been going through, but I shall try. Not long ago, I was sitting in one of my favorite local salon's Lindsays Organic Salon in Leesburg, VA. By the way, they are the only "Organic" and Eco-concious salon in Leesburg. I was sitting there getting my hair trimmed when I heard some noises coming from the suite above. I asked, "Is someone above you?" The owner replied, "Yes, Heavenly Skincare is above us." She started to sequentially list her services: facials, massages, and surprisingly Reiki came up as well. I insisted that the owner take me upstairs to introduce me to Heather(the owner of Heavenly Skincare). I scheduled my first Reiki session right then and there.

When I arrived for my first Reiki session, I had no idea what to expect. Heather is very "in tune" and started the conversation about my state-of-mind and current happenings before my back even hit the table. I knew that I was in for a wild, but enlightening ride. Reiki uses life force energy. There is a transfer of energy between the Reiki healer and the person being healed. My mind and body felt incredibly calm and content. I left feeling elated and at peace with the world. I cannot explain how or why, it just is. The session is focused on the 7-chakras and the balancing of these chakras. I still have much much to learn, but I have started to read about Dr. Mikao Usui(who is the Founder of Reiki). I have also found an interest in practicing and for now the self-healing aspects of the first attunement. This led me to research Reiki masters in the area. I found a Reiki master that I am drawn to: Padma Jen Koch. That leads me to the present or last night rather.

Last night, I awoke in the middle of the night and took my nightly walk to the facilities. As I snuggled back under the covers and closed my eyes, I saw something magnificent! It was like a muted scene from a movie(almost like a sketch or drawing). At first, I saw a beautiful Christmas tree and I believe my family was around me. I came together with my husband and then I saw my children. Underneath the Christmas tree was a sack and pouring out of this sack was tapers. Not just any candlestick, however, it was the plain rust colored candlesticks from "Scotland" that I just purchased from a thrift store for 10 cents. A man(God?) took one of the candlesticks, lit it, and handed one to me. It was a truly beautiful exchange. One I do not think I will forget. I know the path I must travel for now. Light and love to all this holiday season. See you in 2016.
