Today I experienced my first reiki treatment and it was so incredible. I’m almost at a loss for words to describe what it was like. But I’ll start with the amazing woman who performed the treatment, Denise Carpenter from Lotus Wings, . She was my childhood babysitter and it has made me unbelievably happy to have her in my life again, especially during this journey. Before we began, she explained to me to let thoughts come and go and not to force anything. Also that if I had the urge to talk about something, to not hold back because speaking is a way to release and heal. Along with that, I may have the urge to laugh, even cry. Whether it be soft, quiet tears or a full blown cry. I didn’t understand how those urges could arise but I was eager to start. I laid down on the table and from there my job was to relax. I instantly began to feel shifting of energy and only minutes into the treatment I had a giggly feeling come over me. It came and went so fast. Following that, I began to feel sad and tears started to flow. There were thoughts that were most recognizable. One being of my late dog, Cassy. She was my best friend and when it was her time to go it was so hard on me. I felt robbed and a piece of my heart and soul went with her. Next thought being of my mother. She’s always been my rock. I couldn’t help but think about her challenges she’s faced in life. I was so scared for her life when she battled cancer. I was a kid and didn’t understand what was happening completely. Now, being older, I almost feel guilt because I wish I would have been there for her more. I am so fortunate to have my momma bear here. Strong and healthy. (I love you mom!) Thoughts of my late grandparents kept coming to mind as well. But it was almost like I was seeing them standing over me, smiling. It was so warming. Missing people is tough. My final thoughts were of my spouse and my daughter. I thought of their laughs, smiles, hugs and kisses. I am truly blessed. It might seem crazy to put yourself through a treatment such as reiki if it can cause sad thoughts and tears. But I need to stress that you can’t possibly heal yourself if you don’t face whats in your darkest corners. As all of these thoughts were coming and going, a moment that stuck out during the process was when her hands were on my head, the warmth that I felt and it was as if there was a force pulling energy upwards and out of the top of my head. It was amazing! When all was said and done and she asked me to open my eyes, she asked me to really notice the state my body was in. I was 100% relaxed. I’ve never felt that calm in my entire life. I chose the word calm to help my body go back to that state. During my meditation I will tell myself to go to that calm state. I’ve booked another treatment in two weeks and a level 1 beginners class. I’m thrilled to see where this takes me. And I highly recommend everyone to try it. You will be in awe. I promise. Xo Jenna
