To everyone out there I wish you all the best for the festive season. At this time of year it is not unusual to sit back and reflect on what has happened during 2016. Has it been a good year for you? Have you achieved what you set out to achieve?
All too often we measure our accomplishments by what we have done and not how we feel inside. Often we work hard at achieving a goal and, when we reach it we think, is that all there is? We may think: if only I can achieve this or that. It could be a business or a career focused goal; it could be a personal goal: such as a desire to give up smoking, or a desire to lose weight. It really does not matter, what does matter is that we are ignoring how we feel now in favour of how we expect we will feel in the future.
One of the absolute joys of teaching and offering treatments in both crystal healing and reiki, is that I am given the opportunity to work with so many different people, all with their own story to share. I have discovered that many of my clients and students have something in common, no matter what their background. The common desire is to feel better within, to feel more calm, relaxed and connected and to live in the present. Nearly all of my students also have a desire to help others through healing and I show them how to do this, as well as how to go about healing themselves and keeping themselves well. There is a lot of truth in the saying that in order to help others you have to start with yourself first.
For many years I ignored my intuition. I knew that I wanted to learn how to heal and help others. I made excuses that I was too busy or that I was unable to afford to pay for the courses. Both excuses were untrue. After my mom died and my husband was ill I could no longer ignore the overwhelming desire to help others, which had been nagging away at me for many years. I am so glad that I followed my instincts as I have grown in so many ways. I am much calmer, more accepting and my life path is now much clear. I no longer get worked up when things do not go according to plan. I have learnt to take pleasure in the little things: the flowers in summertime, the beauty of freshly fallen winter snow and the song of little birds, early on a spring day.
My message to you is simple. If you feel the desire to learn any healing modality, then go ahead and give it a go. I offer distant reiki courses as well as live reiki courses in Ashby De La Zouch, Leicestershire. Course material can be sent anywhere in the world. If you feel that you would like to try a reiki or crystal healing treatment before embarking on a course please contact me, as many potential students do, and I am pleased to write that nearly all those who try a reiki or crystal healing treatment with the intention of becoming a student actually sign up for a course.
So, go ahead, take that little step by signing up for a course or treatment. I am sure that you will not regret doing so and you will begin a journey of self-discovery. I wonder where your journey will take you.
