One day I asked my Reiki Master, “will I know what I want to do for a career?” While shaking her head she replied earnestly, “Oh, yes.” Fast forward a few years later, and oh yes, I know what I want to do-what I need to do.
It involves my gift of giving Reiki to others. My Reiki Master must have always known, but self-doubt, fear, and social conditioning led me elsewhere. Or was it divine order; and all things intermingling together creating something I had minor control over?
But then the final piece fell into place that completed my search, I had my son. And then, for lack of a better word…I lost my son. Without Reiki in my life, I would have gone to the depths of somewhere, no place good. But it didn’t let me; so much strength and perspective was gained instead.
Now I feel it, and its momentum is gaining. I know that there are so many mothers and fathers out there that had expectations during their own pregnancy, labor, and thereafter. I know some were traumatized, not the same way I am, but through other misfortunes that they thought they had control over. The stories span from; a natural birth altered to a c-section, a supportive OB instead of an unpleasant OB during delivery, or overjoyed and happiness without choosing to let a visitor see your baby and steal your joy. So many other unique stories; and without processing these experiences, life with a newborn could begin and remain so stressful.
With Reiki therapy, the heaviness of these experiences could lighten your life, just like it did mine.
This is my career path, my new business endeavor; becoming a mother to all mothers. I’m going to support, guide, and offer Reiki to those who have experienced this in the past, present, and advocate for the future.
