When I was 15 years old I had my cards Read for the first time. Everything I was told came true almost immediately except for one thing…I was told I would receive an inheritance from a white haired man & that it would not be money. Now at 15 that news was quite disappointing, because a financial inheritance seemed very enticing if unlikely being of Gypsy stock.
I walked down a trail into the woods beside of my house…I just got up from whatever I was doing and felt a spontaneous need to connect with the Divine. There was a spot in the woods that I loved, it was a place of power where the Earth energy was high. Later when I learned the terminology of Dowsing I realized it was a nodal point on a ley line and was perfect for connecting with the energy of the Earth. When I got there I was over come with the desire to strip naked. This is not a common act of mine, in fact I have only felt the need to be bare before creation in ceremony a handful of times, times when the world stilled and my work was more then me…times when Reality was altered. I had no plan, I didn’t even know why I was drawn to that spot or why I was overcome with the desire to reach out to the Divine….but I did. I reached out from deep within my soul and asked for the ability to heal with my hands. I remember standing beside myself in my mind thinking “Really, I am really asking for this?” That moment, like the other handful in which I stood bare before my gods was a pivotal point in my life. My ordinary reality took a step back and my higher self stepped up, doing the talking and putting actions in motion. When I left the woods I really didn’t think about my request much, until months later when I found myself learning Reiki.
I have not regretted my Healing work and I have a great love for Reiki…in fact I have my Reiki Master in 6 schools of Reiki, as well as being a practioner of Rune Valdr & Sacred Sound work. I love teaching others Reiki and how to heal with their hands as well as opening their minds and broadening their reality. None of this do I regret, but I do sit from time to time and wonder how I got here…how did I end up on this road. I think the answer lies in Reality, alternate reality…expanded reality. I didn’t have the desire to become a healer, but some Sali in some reality did…or my higher self knew it was for my greater good and just set out to see it done. I know I am a pretty open vessel and an easy channel which makes it easier for the universe to use me. I believe we all have this connection to our higher self, that allows for our reality to be altered from time to time when the cause is good or the situation necessary. I am thankful for the ability to heal, I am thankful for the ability to share healing with others as a practitioner and teacher. I am amazed at the universe and the force that works through us mere mortals, shifting us about from time to time as necessary.
This was not at all what I thought I would write about today, but I spent my morning teaching 3 talented empathic people Reiki. I also shared some words of advice from my Reiki Master….”Reiki has a mind of it’s own”. You do not know how it will shape you, or what your personal work in healing will be until you embark on that journey. To be a Healer means you have to look at your own shit and see the things about yourself that need healing. Through my work as a teacher of Healing Arts I have met people with fantastic gifts and witnessed the road open before them taking them to their work. I can not say enough how thankful I am that my inheritance was not money…it would have paled in comparison to the gift of channeling energy. I am ever thankful for the ability to share it with others.
