I have been trying to challenge myself to grow and have new experiences. One of the ways I have been doing this is through the Meetup app.
Today I signed up for a Reiki class.
I went to class feeling completely overwhelmed. Part of this is my social anxiety, which was already in overdrive. Part of it was that I have been feeling completely emotionally overwhelmed, and psychically clogged… for lack of a better way to put it.
I’ve been having a lot of trouble sleeping… And a lot of bad dreams.
So, I felt drawn to this. I told myself it was two hours and what was the worst thing that could happen? As I drove to the meet up, I prayed out loud.
Anyway, I walked in the room and I felt immediately welcome. There were two female teachers/healers, and three other women there to participate.
One of the teachers immediately asked me where she knew me from. I stated that I had been to the store once before, but past that I didn’t know.
I still don’t. I’m not actually sure we know each other… But I did feel an odd connection. A pleasant and comfortable connection.
I also felt like she knew my abilities.
And for some reason that did seem to unnerve her.
Maybe this is just in my head? 🤷♀️
Doesn’t really matter anyway.
They got started and spent about 30 minutes on each of us.
I got on the table feeling like an exposed nerve. Feeling the weight of the world on my body.
While they were working on me, I felt warm and pleasant… And tingly. I felt like laughing.
A few minutes in, and my mind flooded with Violet. Shades of lavender and deep purple
I felt very happy and peaceful. Cleansed
Here’s A little view of what Reiki is
The teacher/healer who thought she recognized me gave individual readings/messages after each session.
When I finished, she apologized and told me that she wasn’t able to get anything for me.
I was both disappointed and doubtful. To be honest, I think she did. I think she didn’t want to share what she saw or heard…
I felt like there was something she was uncomfortable with.
When the session began, I told myself to be open. I told myself to allow the experience in. So I don’t think I blocked her. But who knows?
The only thing that she did tell me was that she got a past life vibe for me. She thought that I may have lived in Iceland… And that I loved being outside in the moonlight and the cold.
I have reached out to a friend who I know is able to tell me these kind of things for clarification… But I am thinking she is off base. There are a few things I hate more than being cold. That doesn’t seem like it would be the case if it was something I loved… Even in a former life.
Yeah I know this is a weird post. I know I’m kind of weird too. Thing is, I no longer care.
