Fast forward a year or so and I have been called to Reiki once more, this time as a practitioner. As I have mentioned before, I (like many) let the trials and tribulations of life get in the way and cloud my intended path. We get so caught up in the life that we THINK we should live just to be detoured off our path we are destined to follow. I got so caught up in making money and being successful that I began to push aside the calling deep down inside me. I became selfish and wanted happiness all for myself and I thought I could obtain that by following what society views as "normal". Well fuck normal, I don't want to be normal...I want to be me. I want to be someone who I am meant to be...someone who brings love and light to those around me and to the world.
So a few weeks ago when I received the email from JoAnne about her Reiki training, I decided it was time to take the next step and hop back onto my path. During my Reiki attunement I had a profound experience in which I was able to open up and become a channel for God's (Divine) energy to flow through me and help those in need. Words cannot describe how or what I felt, but to summarize...I received messages from spirit and the gift to heal.
Listen to those feelings deep down inside and follow your own path. Don't think too much as our minds (egos) have a tendency to throw you off track. I have a very scientific mind that likes to analyze life, it is a part of who I am and I love it. I just don't let it control my life. Life is a balance between mind, body, and soul. Each plays an integral part in who we are and why we are here on Earth. Try to open yourself up to ALL parts of you and follow the path that is calling you, not what others (society) believe to be "right" or "normal". If we all did that, life would be one dimensional and boring as hell!
