Reiki is all about energy.
It is an energy therapy that helps with releasing trapped energy flow and emotions within the physical and energetic body.
I discovered Reiki during a period where I was releasing and letting go of many things myself, past relationships, being made redundant from my fashion design job, and my way of life, as I knew it. I was sitting with a sense of wanting to move on to something different for myself – a restlessness.
During a yoga retreat in Thailand I received Reiki almost everyday as a part of a stress release programme. I was apprehensive and didn’t feel too much during the treatment except a deep sense of rest and peacefulness. Then during the latter part of the holiday I started to experience emotional releases and finally, when I was packing my suitcase to go home, whilst listening to a music podcast I surprised myself by starting to sing along and dance in the bathroom. I had lost my mojo for a few years and couldn’t dance for toffee…..but now something had shifted.
Afterwards I entered a period of self-discovery: I was made redundant and I was also becoming restless with fashion, seeking something deeper, a greater purpose. I was studying nutrition part time, but followed my intuition and switched to studying Reiki. I also researched and started freelancing for sustainable sportswear fashion companies. This new fashion area was a perfect match for my interest in wellbeing and an eco friendly way of living that I was beginning to adjust to.
As I continue on my journey I am excited to see how everything is tying together and where Reiki will take me next.
