As a reiki practitioner, I often get asked 'so, who helps you?' The answer is me! 😁
I believe one of the biggest responsibilities of being able to help others is to do it from a place of balance, calm and a grounded wellbeing. I am not saying I am the most rounded person on the planet, I have the usual hang ups and anxieties that come with being a human being, I have aches and pains and the usual hormonal emotions of a woman of a certain age! But by using reiki as a self healing tool on a daily basis allows me to 'hold space' for myself, step back if you like? To understand my creeking knees and emotions and can often reduce or get full relief from the pain or calm and rebalance my emotions. From this space I start to observe a 'bigger picture' how we are all connected and what creates certain energy blockages, emotions and reactions. When doing this, it is easier to work from a place of compassion and empathy. Opening your heart and heightening my vibration allowing an open channel for the receiver to begin healing themselves.
If I didn't regularly use reiki on myself, in my opinion I would feel I was cheating my clients. So all you lovely energy workers out there, DON'T FORGET YOURSELVES! 💖
