This is long overdue but I wanted to share with you all my reiki experience. (I’m not the best writer so this may be a little all over the place!) My name is Celia, and I learned and trained under Master Jyothi this past winter. I never expected this beautiful opportunity to experience the abundant healing of reiki, but like Jyothi says, reiki finds you. My journey started with a couple healing sessions with Jyothi. I had no expectations of what was going to happen because I had never heard of or experienced reiki healing before. I was so amazed by the sensation I felt when the reiki flowed through Jyothi to me— it was unlike anything I had ever experienced. My body felt as if it were floating, buzzing even. It felt as if part of my spirit were lifting from my body and energy was flowing back and forth from the top of my head to the bottom of my feet. I experienced this most when Jyothi was healing my third eye chakra and throat chakra, and I felt a more concentrated warmth in my heart chakra. At the time I started a few healing sessions with Jyothi, I was experiencing a lot of heaviness. There had been so much happening that I was still trying to process in my personal life. I remember crying after our first session because Jyothi felt my energies, and she saw me. She saw exactly how I was feeling and I didn’t have to say words. I was so shocked at how accurate her diagnosis were.
During and after the training and atunement for levels 1 & 2, I continued my self healing practice. I felt so much more confident in my emotions, more present in my relationships and events that were occurring in my life at the time, and a general sense of peace that no matter what, I had myself to trust in and love. When I become overwhelmed and am not able to trust my emotions under stressful circumstances, or am feeling heavy from the loss of a loved one, or am emotionally, mentally, or physically drained, I will perform a healing session for myself once a day for at least 3 days straight. I like to do my sessions with the lights off after lighting my magenta, purple, blue, and green candles. I like to light some incense too 🙂. And I always fall asleep during the session 😂 usually after I’ve made my way down to my sacral chakra I’ll doze off. In the morning I always find myself waking up in the exact position I fell asleep in— I haven’t moved at all. It feels so much easier to get out of bed because my body feels so well rested, so energized and my mind feels refreshed, calm. This practice really has helped me so much. I am filled with so much gratitude that I will forever hold for Jyothi and the knowledge she shared with me for reiki. I gained a lifetime of healing and love, and I am so grateful to be a channel.
