Greetings Tribe!

I feel like there are a lot of people out there who don't know exactly what Reiki is. With it being a big part of my everyday life and business, I thought I would tell you my story and relationship with energy healing. Reiki by definition is:

"A healing technique based on the principle that the therapist can channel energy into the patient by means of touch, to activate the natural healing processes of the patient's body and restore physical and emotional well-being." 

Many years ago, when I was trying to claw my way out of the mean reds over a major break up that I had, I discovered Reiki. I was watching that reality show called Ruby, where a woman {of course named Ruby} who lived in Savannanh, GA was trying to lose a lot of weight. I absolutely loved watching this show and was obsessed! So when Ruby went and had a Reiki treatment done I just thought it was the best thing ever! It also helped that I was already curious about metaphysical stuff anyway, so I set out on a journey to find out what Reiki was.

As most of my research starts out, I scoured the Internet for info and I bought the $5 book from Barnes and Noble to give me the history and basics of Reiki. Long story short, I was interested enough to get attuned to practice Reiki and eventually I joined a meetup so I could get some real world experience. Being a part of that meetup group and having a Reiki treatment done really was a turning point for me in my emotional well-being. The healing that was done really forced me to look at the pain I was holding onto instead of just pushing it down and ignoring it. It also made me evaluate my self worth at the time and understand that I needed to take much better care of myself. From that point on Reiki combined with meditation, has really helped me do some serious self-healing mentally and physically.

The Woo Woo Life

I know this might all sound really out there and woo woo as people like to say, but it's actually great fun and a bit mysterious which is probably why I like it so much. I've been practicing Reiki for six years now and I still love it. It's a pure no holds barred energy healing and that's why I love infusing my crochet projects with it. It's one of my goals to send out as much positivity as I can into the world and this is a major way I've found that I can do this. {Outside of random acts of kindness, that is..} 😛

With that being said, I also feel like I need to include that like with anything else in this world that is of a spiritual nature, Reiki is something that I choose to believe works. I've seen it and felt it and I'm simply here to spread knowledge about it. Anyone can learn how to use Reiki and I hope that this at the very least has piqued your interest enough to find out more information about, because it really is a wonderful practice!

Light & Love,
