I recently started a new class in Shamanic Reiki, which will broaden my awareness as a Reiki Practitioner, and enable me to work in various modalities with clients. The idea of this form of Reiki intrigued me.
Reiki is working with the Universal Life Force Energy to clear away blocks from their chakras so that the energy flows freely. It also lightens their energy body. It does this for both the client and the practitioner.
By blending Shamanism and Reiki together, you get the best of both worlds. The ability to work with the energy body and enable the client to do some guided self-work with elements of the past/present/future that may be weighing their energy/spirit down.
When I finish this course, I will not be a Shaman, that takes much longer. I will be a Shamanic Reiki Practitioner. The next step in my Reiki journey.
I am never one to just jump lightly into a class of this nature, but when I saw the advertisement on Facebook for this class, I knew I had to take it.
Even my husband was surprised, considering I would have to be around people. This is something I haven’t done since COVID started.
I thought it would help me shed what I needed to release to move into the New Year with a powerful mindset, and presence.
I am in the third week of a six-week course, and I absolutely love it. I understand why my spiritual guides moved me to take this course, at this time and with this teacher. My teacher,Robin, is amazing!
I am going through medical issues that are taxing, and I feel that by addressing ancestral, and current concerns I may be able to get through the illness intact.
Also, it will give me a more profound connection to the land, and nature. I have always felt drawn to various sites, and animals/birds so this course may give me the answers I am looking for.
It is such a positive move for me to take this type of action, considering my (and my doctors’) fears. Actually, it is a positive move for me to consider a one-on-one class of this nature, at all.
I am Catholic, in a church that has grown progressively more conservative. That type of dogmatic thinking no longer serves my highest good. I am a very progressive Catholic, and Shamanic Reiki fits my mindset.
If you are feeling in a rut, consider stretching your wings to try a course you may not normally learn toward. It doesn’t have to be a university course, but something that will enrich your soul.
This class may not only prove to be fun, but invaluable.
